TVHS band marching to greatness

Tygarts Valley Middle/High School band program members practice this summer.

MILL CREEK — Under the helm of director Jeff Caplinger, the Tygarts Valley Middle/High School band program is expanding and benefiting from several recent donations.

Last year nearly $20,000 was raised to renovate the bandroom. This included a generous donation of $10,000 from Charles VanOver in honor of his sister, Susie VanOver. The bandroom will be named in honor of her with a plaque memorializing her located next to the entrance to the bandroom.

The band’s next goal is to raise $27,000 for new uniforms. Most of the current uniforms are over 10 years old. They have already received a donation from Virgil Tacy toward this project in the amount of $9,500.
