GHMB 2019 - Squad Leader Applications
It’s hard to believe we’re already discussing and planning for the 2019 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:

Sections 3 & 4 (Marching and Music) will be scheduled for the week of April 15-19. Applicants will march simple segments of drill and perform two songs from the 2017 marching season (Loyalty and TBA).
Online applications are due next Friday, April 5th and squad leaders for the 2018 GHMB will be announced at the May 1st Spring Band Concert.
