2015 Marching Band Leadership Last Changed
2015-07-19
   

Thank you to all of the band students who applied for leadership positions within the McIntosh Band program this year. It is amazing how you are willing to work hard for your team in an effort to create the best band experience for every band member. As you know this has been a busy summer for me with my family. I appreciate your patience in waiting for this information regarding leadership. Also, thanks again to all students and parents who stepped up this summer without anyone asking and worked on this marching band season!  In going over the applications and records of our applicants there were a few areas where additional thought and time is needed. I will conduct additional interviews this week during camp and also have those students complete certain tasks in order to make my final selections. Thank you in advance for your support as I am sure that you know that not every student can be selected for these positions.
