When we first met to establish the Clarkson University Pep Band Alumni Association (CUPBAA) in 2005, we aimed to achieve three goals:

• support the student members of the Clarkson Pep Band

• preserve the traditions and history of the band

• provide a means for Pep Band alumni to stay in touch

We have worked hard over the last five years to move forward with these goals and we are ready to take on a rather ambitious and meaningful project to help support the students in the band.

As you may know, the Clarkson Pep Band will celebrate 50 years of excellence in 2014. To commemorate our Golden Anniversary, we would like to award the first annual CUPBAA Scholarship to a deserving member of the Clarkson Pep Band during Reunion Weekend in July 2014. We need your help to make this happen. Please read on to see how you can help…

Our goal is to raise $25,000 by December 2013 so that we can establish an endowed CUPBAA Scholarship that will be awarded annually for many years to come. Although this amount may seem large, when you consider that there are nearly 600 Clarkson Pep Band alumni, it is certainly an attainable goal. If every Pep Band alumnus were to contribute just $50, we would easily obtain our goal of $25,000.  To date, we have raised over $19,000, so we are well on our way to making this happen!
