GHMB 2018 - Squad Leader Applications
Its hard to believe we’re already discussing and planning for the 2018 edition of The Pride of Grandview Heights. One of the most important steps is the selection of the student leadership; our Squad Leaders. Any returning members, currently in grades 9-11, are eligible and highly encouraged to apply.
The application process is divided into four sections (listed below):
(1) Student Squad Leader Application
(2) Teacher Recommendation Form
(3) Individual Marching Technique Evaluation
(4) Individual Musical Performance Evaluation
Each applicant will submit a student application and request two (2) current teachers on their schedule to complete the online recommendation. Both the application and teacher recommendation have been transferred to Google Forms. Here are the links:
