Much of the credit for the continued growth and success of the Bulldog Band program must be given to the Lakeview Band Boosters. A group of enthusiastic parents and band supporters, these people give generously of their time and talents to support the band.
My name is Heidi Harper, I have served as President of the Lakeview Band Boosters for three years. My husband, Mark and I are both Lakeview Alumni. We have three children, our daughter is a 2017 graduate of Lakeview and was very active in the high school bands program and continues her love of music while away at college. Our middle son is currently in the marching band at Lakeview and our youngest is in 8th grade.
I was a Lakeview High School band member in my high school years. When our kids decided to choose band over choir and the older two chose to stay in band during their high school years, I was over the moon excited for them! I could not wait for them to have as much fun as I did when I was in the band. Band is not only enjoying to play an instrument, or practicing marching moves, it’s also very much about the friendships you make!
We have such an amazing group of students here at Lakeview! I am humbled and filled with joy to be involved and know that 100% of what I give to this program is given right back to the students that will be coming up into the high school band program for years to come. The adults that volunteer also come away with lasting friendships!
I unfortunately never knew the joy of Marching Band , or High School bands, until my son came home after marching in 8th grade at a football game. He was totally "ate -up" with marching and being part of the band. I decided to come to a booster meeting when my son was in 9th grade . I fell in love with the experience my child was having by being a part of this wonderful group. Although, my life is extremely busy with work , I'm president of Howland Alarm , and my social life including Playing Bluegrass Music in my family band , bowling , and a member of the Warren Rotary Club .... I wouldn't trade seeing my son at his happiest , by being a part of Band. I'm proud to serve as Vice President of the Boosters. I will continue to help , so that each child can have many wonderful memories of their time in Band.
My name is Michelle Moss. I’m a mom of 3 girls, 2 currently in band. My girls’ love for music and great experience with our band has inspired me to become more active in the boosters. I’m so glad to be helping as it is always a good time with a bunch of laughter! Everyone is so welcoming. If you have any questions please feel free to ask!
I am Joan Gomez, and I have been the Band Booster Secretary since June 2017. Prior to that I was the Band Booster Vice President from September 2015 through May 2016. I am a Registered Nurse for Mercy Health in Youngstown, Ohio. I have been the band Nurse since 2013. I started chaperoning with the band in 2012 when my oldest son was in marching band. It is fun to watch your children have fun doing what they love. I've seen how hard work and practice pay off. I look forward to watching and listening to the band perform at each football half time, band nights and contests.
I have been married to Michael Gomez for 34 years and have 4 children. All of my children have attended Lakeview Schools. My 3 oldest were each in band all 4 years and are now in college. My youngest is currently in High School and is in the Marching Band.
