“After 15 years working at Claudia Taylor “Lady Bird” Johnson (CTJ) High School in San Antonio and an equal number on a drum corps staff, I have learned a few key points regarding the value and importance of engaging parent and alumni support.

  • A person who feels appreciated will always do more.
  • Entrusting others to manage a project builds ownership in the organization.
  • Solve problems by harnessing the talent of many smart people with great ideas.
  • As a director, be willing to admit you don’t know everything, and someone else may have a better solution to a problem.
  • You are never alone — when you engage a team of parents, you share successes and failures.”
