Grants in Action | 2022/2023 School Year

Thanks to a $14,000 grant from Perrysburg Schools Foundation, the Perrysburg High School band has purchased two new King sousaphones and cases.

“These are marching instruments that are replacing some of our more seasoned and loved instruments,” shared Ryan Williams, Assistant Band Director, PHS. “Our Marching Band has been growing and we got to the point where we needed to replace some aging instruments. These will be very eye-popping on the field and are sure to bring attention to our group during the games this fall during the marching season!”

The Perrysburg Schools Arts Council is charged with suggesting areas of funding from the Perrysburg Schools Foundation and its Campaign for the Arts that supports the visual and performing arts through student discovery, student experience, program growth and program sustainability.
