Letter of Reference
from Jim Cude

Dear Peter,

I wanted to thank you for all of your work with our band. We were able to accomplish great things this year. We achieved so many of our goals for the marching season. Our band had been a UIL State Marching Contest Qualifier on three different occasions and this year we were able to make the finals and a sixth place finish. I feel like the students were able take ownership of the show as they worked to accomplish their mission statement and the goals that they set out for themselves.

I know that my Leadership Team took their jobs more seriously and worked to build a real family atmosphere in the band. We all took to heart the idea of not just building a band but building a family. I saw students that never expressed total commitment to the band program develop that commitment once the family bond was established. That was when we began to see all of the hard work pay off.

Thank you for all of your work and your contribution to the band program.

Take care and God bless,

Jim Cude
