UMass Marching Band Leader Dies Enroute to Michigan Game

George Parks died Thursday in Ohio while out with his UMass Minutemen marching band as they headed to this weekend's Michigan game. The bus was making stops at local schools recruiting along the way, something they've done to this area several times. Today the band presented a pregame performance in honor of their fallen leader.

Some of our Matawan High School marching band students, including my daughter, have participated in Mr Parks's summer leadership camp in West Chester, Penn and/or attended UMass. Mr Parks will be sorely missed.
