Student Assistant (SA) is an integral position in the Marching Band.  A student selected to serve as SA must have previous experience in the Marching Band (minimum one year).  SA is not a performing member of the ensemble but, under the guidance of the Director, will cover numerous tasks both logistically and educationally.  From equipment management and transportation logistics to musical and marching instruction, a typical SA is an upperclassman and an aspiring music educator.  However, music is not a required major for the position.

An SA is selected by application and interview with the Director.  SA’s are eligible for a Marching Band scholarship for their service (following Department of Music guidelines).  If you have any questions or require further information regarding the Student Assistant position please contact or by phone 573-651-2334.
