Band Boosters

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. 

Karin Hudson


My name is Karin Hudson, this is my forth year as the President of the Lakeview Band Boosters, but my ninth year being actively involved with the Lakeview band program. My husband, Mike, and I have two sons; Zachary is a 2019 Lakeview graduate and was very active in band in high school and at The University of Akron, he still helps those marching bulldogs now and again. Our youngest son, Joshua, is a senior on the drum line and serves on band council as quarter master. Seeing the memories being made over the years with my boys marching on the field brings me such joy!

I am thrilled to continue to help the Bulldogs with their ‘Tradition of Excellence’ and help every band student in the program make memories of a lifetime! Spending so much time with these students is a true honor, they are a great group of kids! 

I have made some wonderful friends volunteering with this program and I continue to meet terrific parents every year as we all work toward the same goal, supporting our incredible kids as they do what they love.
