Student government has cut $25K from their $150K subsidy of the marching band budget, contingent on Director Dr. Eric Wiltshire getting the money from other sources, presumably the AD. It will be interesting to read about his good faith efforts to do that. Ian Campbell of the ODE has the story so far. This 2006 ODE story documents a previous attempt, back when the subsidy was only $115K.
Good stuff, but the real money is in the $467K students pay every year to subsidize Matt Court, and the $1.83M they pay for the athletes-only jock box tutoring etc., 2/1/13.
