Band Backer Scholarship Committee
  Each year the Band Backers award two scholarships to graduating seniors. Joan Schmidt has agreed to chair the selection committee this year. We will need a group of volunteers to work with Joan to review the applications and select two students to receive the award. Please contact Joan if you are interested in helping with this committee.

Applications are due March 7th. Only applicants who are members of the Band Program and parent/guardian are Band Backer members in good standing will be eligible for consideration for the Band Backers scholarship. All other applicants will be disqualified. For more info please visit the Southington High School Naviance system.


Yard Signs
 Following the lead of many other organizations and teams at the high school we have designed a lawn sign. This sign will allow you, your family, and neighbors the ability to show their support for the Marching Band. Here is the design we have come up with:

These are two sided 18 X 24 inch signs and cost $20 each. If you are still looking to purchase one, contact Tisha and Eric Semmel at


Congratulations BKMB!!!
