YOU can help the Marching Giants get new uniforms!

Posted: by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
News Blog Category - News The Marion High School Marching Giants are grateful for the efforts and assistance of the Marion High School Alumni Association, which was recently awarded a $20,000 matching grant from the Community Foundation of Grant County. 

Funds will help pay for new marching band uniforms, a much-needed update for Grant County's only competitive marching band. The uniforms currently in use are 15 years old, and not only are they showing wear and tear, but there are too few to accommodate the continued growth of the band. 

The matching grant fundraising period runs through mid-June. 

Here is a look at the new uniforms:



Marion Community Schools has committed to pay about half the cost of the new uniforms ($25,000). MHSAA has stepped up to help raise the rest, and this matching grant opportunity is key to making that happen!
