2018 Leadership

Leadership Application Process

Anyone who has been a member of the Marching Skyhawks for at least one season is invited to apply for a leadership position.  Students who have previously held a leadership position, must reapply.

The purpose of leadership in the Marching Skyhawks is to facilitate the growth of band members, to create a sense of family within a specified section, as well as to assist Dr. Boyd and Mr. Lightner with reaching the goals and objectives of the program.

Positions to possibly apply for:

Section Facilitator (commonly referred to as section leader)

Brass, Woodwind, Percussion, Guard, and Majorette captain


Drum Major


Leadership will function much the same way it has this past season.  In addition, there will be a leadership training weekend planned during the summer.  More details for this to be released soon.


To apply for one of these positions, one must:

  1.  Complete the Leadership Application
