The banquet was an enjoyable experience for the 150 Marching Band members and families. These members brought in tons of exotic salads, fried chicken, pasta, cheesy potatoes, pizza, fine chinese cuisine, decadent desserts and many other delectible foods. After the feast, the banquet was followed with recognizing the freshman, sophmore, junior, and senior Marching Band members. From their outstanding performances at half time during the football games to the final concert at the end of the season, this Marching Band has demonstrated true spirit for West Geauga. Ms. Cottrel triggered laughter throughout the band members with her art history related pictures of Mr. Cosenza. The Band Council, which consists of Lauren Wargelin, Eric Lu, Colin Ecker, Katie Taylor, Kathreen Dean, and Kate Snyder, presented Mr. Cosenza with a brand new electronic tuning device that was from the Senior band members. Before this, Lauren Wargelin, Colin Ecker, and Kate Snyder performed a rap about the entire band season along with Shelly Butters beatboxing which was quite amusing for everyone at the banquet. At the end, Jacob Gelman preached his last "Phil Shieman" speech to end the banquet with a bang!
