Wolfpack Marching Band banquet

Suzanne Kaiser

On Thursday, November 12, 2015, the MCHS Wolfpack Marching Band held their annual band banquet.

Each year the parents and staff of the Wolfpack Marching Band holds banquet in honor of the marching season being over with, as well as to recognize the accomplishments of the whole band and individual students.

Held in the cafeteria like previous years, the banquet was hosted by the directors Trisha Foltz, Derrick Meilander, and Rich Merrick. Sticking to tradition, each table was decorated to match the theme of this year’s marching band show, The Prince of Egypt. Also like in years past, each student was giving an ornament representing the show as well. Senior Spencer Marsh’s mother, Tia Marsh, was kind of enough to make them for the roughly 80 band and guard members.

As similar as the banquet was to the previous ones, it was just a little bit different, as to be expected with a different director. Some changes included the awards. While a Most Improved award was not given out, awards for outstanding marching were. Another unique award was given to Mr. Merrick himself. The award was called “The Curse has Been Broken.” The name was based off of the Curse of the Mummy, again in spirit of “The Prince of Egypt.” This award was given Merrick to symbolize the challenges that both him and the band overcame to achieve an all gold season.

The Wolfpack Marching band banquet is held annually, and for that, the band would like to deeply thank all of the band moms, dads, staff, and supporters.
