PHMC is scheduled for April 25th at Washington High School in Fremont starting at 8 am. The deadline for entries is fast approaching, March 30th.

Paying on time allows the program to be finalized and awards ordered earlier to prevent last minute schedule changes and unordered awards.

High School Scholarship will also be announced during the State weekend. If you are a high school senior and are going to college next year, you may receive additional funds to assist in your education endeavor. Kurtis Hubbel (2012) and Emily McCrone (2013) have been our prior year recipients of the CBC Scholarship. Julia McCrone is putting together a Senior Board in recognition of all our high school seniors, please see Julia to be included. All applicants will be recognized at our State Competition. The application must be received no later than April 15, 2015.
For both PHMC and State we are seeking volunteers. As you may or may not know, California Baton Council (CBC) is a non-profit organization that relies 100% on your. Both of these competitions are sponsored by the CBC. There are 11 Board members and during these competitions we wear many many hats.
We would greatly appreciate it if you could look at your calendar and find some time to help us for these competitions. This year’s competition director, Tina Allman will be sending out an email (or an on-line coordination tool) to help us organize these two upcoming and large events. Thanks for making a difference!
