2014-2015 Band Council Student Leadership
Woodwind Line Captain:
Brass Line Captain:
Thank you so very much to every individual that applied for a leadership position this year. I was humbled when reading through so many wonderful applications. I am amazed at the maturity, creativity, and organization of the leadership hopefuls. I wish I could express how hard these decisions are to make. I truly wrestle with the decision for each and every position. There are people not on this list that ARE leaders in this band. I, unfortunately, only have so many positions/titles. Please remember that being a leader and being influential in this program does not always take a title. I can tell you of some of my favorite and most respected Seniors that never had a title. I call this the “Tehvon” category! Your role in this program is as important as ever. Please, please do not quit. The titles are a very small piece of the overall leadership of this band. The fact that you put the time in to apply tells me something about you. You ARE a leader, and special to me. I will treat you as such.
To those that were selected:
Your job is to become above reproach in every aspect of this art form. You need to be the strongest and the most hard-working. You need to make EVERYONE feel important and work to incorporate every Senior into your leadership style. Do not brag. Be humble. Now – you will be less as others around you get more.
To those that were not selected:
Please be honest with me as you process this. I understand that I may have hurt your feelings, and I hate that. I want you to know how much I respect you. If you can, please support the person that I have chosen. Make them better. This entire program is about TEAM. We work hard to help each other. I value you – please believe me. I really don’t want to lose you… Let’s do this together.
ALL Applicants: Please see me by Thursday, May 15th to confirm your attendance for the Summer Marching Academy (Dobson, HS) – June 12th – 14th. Thanks!!
(You only pay $25- ‘DVBB’)
