The Panther Pride Marching Band at Pasquotank County High School is unveiling their new look. The band has been working diligently the last four years on a campaign to raise $35,000 toward the purchase of 75 new uniforms that include coats, pants, hats and accessories.The new uniforms will replace aging uniforms first purchased when the school opened in 2000. The funds to purchase the new uniforms were raised by parents through the PCHS Band Boosters.Many businesses and organizations also supported this effort in various ways, including the Education Foundation for ECPPS and outstanding annual support from Biggs Cadillac Buick GMC. In addition, the band was able to use funds from the Miles Clark Band Trust Fund provided for Pasquotank County High School.
The band director, parents, and students are extremely appreciative of the incredible support from the community through individual contributions, volunteering at events, participating in fundraisers and most importantly supporting the student performances. The band is eternally grateful to the community for recognizing the hard work of the band students at Pasquotank County High.Band members will be proudly wearing the new uniforms as they participate in band competitions, football games, and parades throughout the 2019-2020 school year.
