It is unbelievable how quickly the summer has passed and we are gearing up for another exciting and eventful school year. The band program is thriving and growing more and more every year. I am grateful to the amazing parent volunteers who help our Band Directors and the High School and Middle Schools. As a team of parents and directors, we are creating unforgettable musical opportunities. Our program has grown/doubled in the five years I have served as Booster President. It takes a lot of work to raise enough funds to support our growing band program. I have a hard working board who do their jobs fabulously, I certainly could not do all of this alone.
At this time, I am making an urgent request to fill a board position. This position is key in keeping our goal to raise money for all of the amazing opportunities we have planned for the band program for this year. I need a new VP of Sponsorship. As a board, we are trying to create more manageable positions and spread the workload for each board member. This year we are trying to create a “Sponsorship Committee”, and Ken McCoy was our Lead. He has recently changed roles and is now the VP of Marching Band. Ken has done an amazing job organizing and kicking off our Sponsorships for this year, and has already reached out to sponsors, and is getting responses back from some. I need someone to relieve Ken of this responsibility so that he can focus on Marching Band. We live in an amazing community with very generous supporters. Please consider joining us on the Band Boosters Board to keep our goals on target.
Please respond to this email if you have any further questions or would like to discuss the position with me or Ken. Thank you for helping us keep the band program running successfully.
