Drum Major 2019
Today during band class we held our drum major auditions. The audition process requires completion of a written application and a director interview. If chosen to audition, the participant must perform various drum major responsibilities in from of the band. The band then has the opportunity to vote for their drum major. I was extremely proud of the candidates as they did an incredible job with every aspect of the audition process. However, there can be only one.
Congratulations to WILL HECKER, Drum Major for the 2019-2020 Marching Spartans!
Our leadership team would not be complete without Band Captains. Out Band Captains for 2019-2020 are ALEX BEBENEK and ED WELLS!
