What is the leadership Council?
The Leadership Council is a small group of students in marching band and other aspects of the Rebel Regiment who meet at least once a month to discuss how to improve the band or where to lead the Rebel Regiment. First formed in 2019, the Leadership Council needed rules and guidelines. Tasked with the job of creating a whole new council for the Rebel Regiment, four marching members - Mathiew Tackitt, Chris Larson, Emilie Gatewood, and Sonja Bernacki - wrote the rules, guidelines, and purposes of the new Leadership Council (Seen Below). Below are the members and positions of those serving in the leadership council.
The Leadership Council's main purpose is to serve as a liaison between the students and the directors. They help to define the direction of the overall program. Each Vice President should listen to the issues in their grades and take them to the President who then should bring the matter up in a meeting. The Leadership Council offers the students a louder and stronger voice in decisions that affect the overall Rebel Regiment.
