New Uniform Drive
The Wekiva Marching Mustangs are currently fundraising to replace our original uniforms. This has been a multi-year project that was hampered by the COVID crisis, but has become critical to complete this year. Our existing uniforms were purchased for the opening of Wekiva High School in 2007. They are frayed, missing button, ripped out zippers, torn cuffs, stained and literally coming apart at the seems after so many years of use given that schools typically replace them every 9-10 years. We have been patching them for years, but since we have gotten about 50% more use out of them than is normal, we think it is time to replace them.
To the right (and in the header of this page) are some of our student wearing a mock up of the new uniform. As you can see, the uniform is much more vibrant and eye-catching. It also has our mascot prominently displayed on the chest. The material in the new uniform is also lighter weight and more conducive to marching in Central Florida's heat which will lead to less medical issues at games and competitions.
We are working with Music to My Mind, a 501(c)3 non-profit charity that uses area professionals to go into the schools and assist music programs through instruction, performance and funding. They will help us raise funds to buy the new uniforms for the 2022 fall marching season. If you want to help the Marching Mustangs meet their goal, you can visit Music to my Mind's link below to learn how to make a tax-exempt donation or contact our band director, Mr. Grossnicklaus using the link below.
Thank you for your time and consideration in helping out our wonderful students here at Wekiva High School.
