Tracy has served as your Booster President for the 2015-16 year and Vice President for 2014-2015 year. She is an original band geek that played Clarinet and did Color Guard. She has had 2 children participate in the Silver Magic program. Currently Elizabeth is a Junior in the Color Guard. Her other children have also been in a marching band program; giving her a combined total of 10 years experience as a band booster. She loves it. The fun of building great memories with new friends and the children; Tracy feels it is a great opportunity to give of your time and energy to a worthy cause because it has been proven that a music program teaches many lifelong skills. These skills prepare your child for college and everyday life. It also gives you the opportunity to see your children doing something they love as well as mentor others . As parents we can be an example to the students, showing them love and care, support and encouragement; being there when you are really needed, in that moment of emothional support or discussion of life problems.
Looking forward to working with each of you this year.
