Pep Band Wraps Up 1st Season In Over a Decade

The Pep Band Sports a Retro look with the classic MM shield logo
For around a decade Mount Michael football and basketball games have been missing something,  a pep band. Under the direction of 1st year band director Noelle Kunkel, the pep band was revived and has brought great spirit and music to athletic events. Older alum Knights might take note that the old MM shield logo was chosen as a retro look for their t-shirts.

Mount Michael does continue to have a concert band but it is no longer the sole focus.

Additional MP3 files are available on the student shared drive in a folder titled "1 MM Music"
