Mission Statement

There has always been a great sense of dedication and commitment by all students who have endured the training and necessary testing that goes along with achieving membership in the Pride of Cuyahoga Falls, the Tiger Marching Band. Past members have always longed for the chance to return to their home field and march again.

The funds we receive help to offset the costs of the annual newsletter, provides each graduating senior with their Pride t-shirt, sponsors a scholarship for a graduating senior, and contributes annually in whatever way it can to the current band

Today, the Pride is a highly-regarded organization in the community and if not the largest, one of the largest high school alumni band organizations in the nation. In addition to the “Preview of Bands" band show, we participate in the Cuyahoga Falls Memorial Day parade, the Stow Fourth of July parade and various other community activities and benefits.
All this came from the desire to come home “ONE MORE TIME".

Funding Needs

Most of our monetary needs relate to the need to have instruments available for our members to use at performances. We have been collecting used instruments for years, but maintenance costs are beginning to outweigh the costs of purchasing new(er) items.
