NEW STARTING 2019-2020 - Athletic Band Stipend Distribution Information

Starting the fall semester of 2019, the Athletic Band Stipend will be distributed differently in order to accommodate the growth of our programs in relation to the Athletic Band Stipend line item fees. This change will enable the Athletic Bands to reward the re-establishment of the Stingers Dance Team, and the creation of the ESU Winter Guard during the Spring Semester.  This change will also enable the ESU Athletic Bands to give all Hornet Revue Travel Band Alternates a Spring Stipend in addition to the 25 Travel Band members.
