My wife and I attended Cadets brass camp yesterday. Had some good conversations with some people on the inside of things. Many involved with the corps right now are taking positive steps to help the C

As I try to fight back tears, since my students are in the room right now as I read all this, all I can say right now is...  Thank God for DCP.  Reading here and seeing this conversation tak

I felt nauseated reading this.  Fear for the activity, this needs to be exposed and dealt with not just at Cadets but everywhere, but I’m so scared it’s going to overwhelm the whole activity.  Sadness

BoD has to go just on perception alone.  Anyone that's been around the activity for any length of time knows there is no distinction between Hop and the yea bod...its like good old Palps saying "I am the Senate."  Putting it in polite terms.

So does anyone read DCW anymore? I would think someone would notice an ad looking for board member applicants and think it was weird. Maybe someone should ask DCP if they ever sold an ad for such purpose. I do believe and have said that I think that the board existed only because they legally had but I don't know that I would believe it would be filled by a newspaper ad. Board positions are supposed to be voted on by members, not applied for and awarded like a job.

I can’t help what you believe and I can understand you’re having a difficult time believing Terri, however I found it difficult to believe when he was telling us how he became Mr. Peabody Chairmen of the Cadets BOD’s. We looked at each with this okay look on our face. Email him yourself and ask him directly because he didn’t seem hesitant to tell us.

Did some LinkedIn browsing.... The only board member that appears to have any connection to the marching arts is Roger Floreska.  He was a band director for about 5 years, ending in 2001.  The majority of the rest seem to be in positions that could not be further from youth, education, and/or arts.

... so weird that they botched this.

Tim is an alumnus

I think the new directors of the corps know what needs to be done, but the board controls them not the other way around

i'm pretty sure the board is being ignored right now
