Whitney Lorenz is a member of the Michigan State University Alumni Band which was founded in 1970 and the Board of Directors was founded in 1993. http://spartanband.net/alumni/
Whitney has served on the Alumni Band Board since March of 2018 where she was a Member-at-Large as she learned the ropes. Whitney just recently took over as MSUAB Secretary. Most work goes into the Fall and Spring Reunions, which are a ton of work but incredibly rewarding.
Whitney believes that organization is such a cool thing. No matter where you went to college, your band was and is your family. It is easy to get caught up thinking about your own conference/alumni band, but there are so many out there to see and learn from. Whitney was hoping to become more involved with the NAoAB, especially through social media, to help bridge the gap between organizations. It is exciting to get people talking and sharing stories, and our band community benefits from these types of interactions.
Whitney is a full-time graduate student going for a degree in Public Administration and certificate in Higher Education & Student Affairs, but has always had a true passion for band. Since she was not a music-major, she is always trying to find new ways to support the band community. This position opens a great way to continue serving while extending her knowledge of alumni programs all over the nation.
