Student Leadership

Student Leadership

The CMB is relies heavily on its leaders to support and embody the mission of the CMB.  The leaders help cultivate our sense of family from the time a new member walks through the doors of the Hunter Smith Band Building until they time they walk the Lawn at graduation.  CMB students are called to serve the needs of the band and their fellow band members to create a culture that is unique and exciting.  Our leadership structure allows first year members to focus on playing and marching first while providing numerous opportunities for growth over four years in the CMB.  Full descriptions of the positions listed below can be found in the menu to the right!
