The WVU Marching Band has been extremely fortunate to have had many quality students pass through its ranks. Every year the WVU Marching Band recognizes those people at their annual end-of-season banquet. These awards recognize those individuals who show outstanding dedication throughout the Marching Season.
Support for the West Virginia University Marching Band from alumni and friend continues to grow every year. The WVU Foundation announced Thursday (Oct. 30) that the 2014 Pride Travel Fund has received a record $115,718 from 1,014 donors to date, breaking last year's record of $103,232 from 941 donors.
The annual campaign was established to help defray the costs of travel for the band, including transportation, hotels and food for nearly the 400 members and staff. A check presentation will take place during halftime of the WVU-TCU football game Saturday (Nov. 1).
