Yuna An, Paul Choi, Keith Wolke, David Bush, Laura Johnson, Maria Whitaker, Paul McGannon, Tyler McDaniel, Matsuri Ogawa, Martha Anderson, Jim Brannon, and Karlee Tate. Some of you will immediately recognize these names. Until last week, I did not. My interest in this group was heightened last weekend as I found my foot keeping time with their music at the women’s basketball game.
I am sure you have guessed that these are the members of the Pep Band. You have seen them play and enjoyed the music of the Pep Band at numerous athletic venues, like football games and men’s and women’s basketball games. They come out to cheer on the Blue Hose. They do not ask for a lot of credit, but under the leadership of Pep Band Director, Dr. Richard House, they make life more fun for all of us who attend athletic events. Thank them the next time you see them. Let them know how much we appreciate their efforts and how much we enjoy their music.
