New Host Needed for 2016 District Band

Our expected host has taken a new position in New York, and we are in need of a new host for District Band during the next school year. Please contact Jaime Gardner and Dan Sensenig if you are willing and able to take on this festival.

Samantha Schreckengost from Corry is the recipient of the PMEA District 2 Scholarship for 2015.

The District 2 scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior from one of our member schools who has demonstrated the highest excellence in musical achievement and is going on to college in pursuit of a degree in Music Education. Congratulations, Samantha, and best wishes for future success in music.
