Trisha is a proud band mama! She loves to craft and volunteer for these amazing kids! Her Senior son is Drum Major this year! Although it looks different this season, she is still just as proud! He loves his Mello, but he can rock the Trumpet, French Horn and Sax too! Her oldest is a BGPR Alum too but now serves our country in the U.S Navy! With her youngest being a Senior and her oldest a Sailor, she has her hands and heart full! But she wouldn't have it any other way!

Vanessa is a mom to an amazing Sophomore that plays the trombone. After this past year, she is looking forward to the opportunities that lie ahead in competitions, performances and supporting our AWESOME AND AMAZING band members.  She is a pediatric nurse that loves helping and taking care of others.  In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her kids, hiking, cooking/baking, reading, and exploring our beautiful state.

Kristy is mom to two members of the Pride Regiment this year. Her oldest son is a sophomore that plays baritone and is a section leader. Her youngest son is trombone playing freshman. She loves being able to share in their enthusiasm for music and helping to make wonderful memories with the entire band family.

What we do

The Executive Board is comprised of your peers. Parents, just like you. We all have full time jobs, some of us also have kids in sports and other kids with needs of their own. We make it work because we want to see these kids thrive! We share the same struggles, concerns and worries as you. We also share in your pride, joy and excitement to see our kids learn, grow and be their best selves. 

We have monthly meetings to discuss upcoming events, coordinate volunteer opportunities, manage your child's band funds and help your kids as much as we can. We sew, we glue, we balance accounts and we laugh, we praise and treat your kids as our own. 

As you know, it takes a village to raise a child. In our family we have nearly 100 kids. We are always looking for help, for volunteers, just like you. There is always much to do and many hands make light work. We have fun, we work hard and even though we don't get paid, what we get in return is immeasurable. Join us!
