Had cousins in Marion local...one year they had only like 5 kids on thenwhole HS who were not in a sport or the band.How many in the band? A couple years ago 75 and that includes freshman. Impressive nonetheless and the MAC recipe has been shared on this forum several times over. However, they do not have 15-20 DI/DII (scholarship) kids in the program every year and are not a so-called private institution propped up by taxpayer scholarships for who they WANT in the school.
I just think many participate so they don't have to do rhe evening milking ha ha.
