Student Jacob Schiffbauer set up a petition to support the middle school marching band programs. He set this petition to help get support for funding for the bands. He said he put this petition together to raise awareness that the bands are shrinking and doesn’t have the support now that it once had, so he is asking for people to help spread the word and help support the band.
The petition has been very successful and has gotten over 1,300 signatures. The petition has also raised over $350 for the band. Jacob said, “In the recent years, Uniontown Area High School has been cutting down on expenses for the marching band. This is resulting in less members coming up each year while more seniors continue to graduate. Last school year we lost about twelve members who graduated and gained only two freshman.”
