Volunteers to carry out events of senior night.Senior night honors all seniors and their parents during the nightly football game including the senior band students and their parents. There is usually a presentation held before the game in the EHS Band Room for the senior students and their parents with a gift being presented to the seniors. To receive a gift the student must be in good standing.
Spirit Wear & Ticket Sales
The ticket sales team will step forward whenever tickets are sold. Such times could include, but are not limited to, the Band Banquet, DCI, and football games. The EHS Band has a section of reserved seats at home football games that are sold to band parents.

Most of the work is done at home doing paper work, filling out a spreadsheet, typing in email addresses, double checking paperwork, packaging and distributing tickets.
Will assist the team coordinator during band camp to fit all marchers and assist with fitting for marching shoes. Volunteers will help coordinator during the season with uniforms both before and after football games and for competitions.
