Volunteer Of The Year

IMG_0812Congratulations to Neal Deacon for being selected as the Band Fans Volunteer of the Year for the 2013-2014 school year!  Neal began his volunteering by chaperoning band camp in his percussionist son Matt’s freshman year, and he’s made a repeat appearance at band camp every year since (for a total of four). Now wrapping up his fourth year as a volunteer, Neal has chaperoned football games and competitions, volunteered each year for uniform fitting day, driven the equipment truck, served as an essential member of the HPR backdrops team, donated his home each year for the Band Fans holiday party, and donated equipment and materials to the band.  Neal, thank you so much for your support these past four years.  We will miss you!
