I hate to say it but I am glad I switched careers when I did..
In the 2010's several bands when non-competitive. Some went before that.
What is going to hurt is the overall budgets activities get from fundraising. Several small and large businesses are going to be hurt and will not have that extra discretionary spending.
In many places, the head band director gets the same stipend as the football coach and Boys basketball coach. Where is that money going to come from?
Also, many of these positions that are open are because someone didn't have tenure. I am more curious to see what is going on in Butler County. He was there for 15 years AND that was his first job out of college. It is safe to say Bowling Green was a retirement. I have asked around and haven't heard anything.
What about you all? Any news?
I DO NOT want speculation or assumptions. This thread is a fact finding mission. Please keep it at that.
