Gregory Snyder Coda Scholarship

Gregory Snyder Coda Scholarship

Applications are now being accepted for the Gregory Snyder Coda Scholarship. The Scholarship is awarded to a Lakota West senior who is both a Symphonic Winds and Marching Firebirds member. This person is committed to playing his/her instrument in a college-sanctioned ensemble or marching band; he/she may or may not plan to be a music major. Throughout high school, this individual increasingly displayed the characteristics of a good leader. In addition, he/she is a joyful person, who is patient and has gained the respect of fellow band members. This person is kind and faithful to the band program and directors.

The use of the word “Coda” (an Italian musical term meaning the concluding passage of a piece or movement) in the scholarship name refers to Mr. Snyder’s endearing use of the phrase, “We never miss the coda because we go to La-kota (coda) every day.”

The application deadline is March 21st.

Rose Bowl RoseCongratulations to the Lakota West Marching Firebirds for their historic second invitation to the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasenda, California on January 1, 2015. Lakota West already holds the distinction of being the first Southwest Ohio high school band to appear in the Rose Parade in 2008. More than 79 million people worldwide watched the broadcast of the parade, which was shown live in 115 countries. The Marching Firebirds were the 24th unit in the parade, appropriately right after the massive “Firebird” float presented by Singpoli Group. They also performed their grand champion award-winning show, “Best of West,” at the Tournament of Roses Bandfest in Pasadena, CA on Tuesday, December 30.
