Viper Band Family,
I am so excited to announce the new addition to our wonderful Viper Band Staff! Please join me in welcoming Mr. Dustin Tharp who will be filling the roll of Assistant Band Director for the coming school year.
Mr. Tharp is no stranger to Vandegrift HS or the Viper Band Family, as he spent his student teaching semester with Vandegrift HS and Four Points MS three years ago. In the coming weeks we will organize a “Meet the Band Director Night” so that all students and parents can welcome Mr. Tharp to the Viper Band family and get specific information regarding the roles and responsibilities of all staff members.
Please see the attached bio for more information regarding our new band director.
Welcome Mr. Tharp, and go vipers!
Mr. Howard
