Save the Marching Wildcats!

The Riley High School Marching band has proven to be an incredibly important organization in the school for years. Under the leadership of our directors, Dan Balog and Jeff Gorman, we have been able to get a gold ranking in the ISSMA competition for the past 12 years. However, due to staff changes in the fall of 2013, our band has suffered. We ask for your assistance and support toward restoring our band to its former leadership.

We are concerned that the proposed band director replacement, Linda Howard, would be an unfit addition to our band. Many parents, former students, and current students of her do not hold her in high regard. Due to her lack of marching band experience, we understand her presence in our band to be nothing but detrimental to the performance level of the band.

This petition is to restore the leadership of our band solely to Mr. Balog and Mr. Gorman. They have already stated that if Mrs. Howard is given the job, they will leave the band. Without Mr. Balog and Mr. Gorman, the band will fall apart, and all the beloved traditions it upholds such as performing at halftime during football games and playing pep band music at basketball games will end. The student body's school spirit of Riley High School will never be the same.

If you support keeping the band directors, please sign this online petition. Please help us save our band and continue to be the "Pride of the South Side". Your support is greatly appreciated!
