Dear Music Supporter,
Thank you for considering a financial sponsorship in support of the SMMHS Signal Corps Marching Band. Our elite marching program, under the direction of Mr. Shelby Walker and Mr. Drew Buckner, ranked 5th in the state of Division 2 high school marching bands during the 2018 season and 1st in Outstanding Musical Performance in Bands of America (BOA) Division 1A Championship in Powder Springs, Georgia. With your support, we hope to return to the TN State finals and BOA again this year and compete in more national competitions.
In order to produce a successful season, including summer band camps, marching season, competitions, and concert band, it costs the Signal Corps program approximately $100,000 for one year. With 108 members, that cost averages out to around $1000 per student in marching band and color guard. These costs are necessary to have an elite-level marching band at SMMHS, and are NOT funded by Hamilton County.
Whether you are a business, family member, friend, or alumni, your support helps us to fulfill the promise of offering an exceptional musical experience at SMMHS. Through their dedication to marching band, our students graduate as dedicated, goal oriented, team building adults who succeed at much higher rates as they matriculate to college and the workforce. Through your support, we can continue to build a stronger program for our current and future generations.
