The Bowie Band program welcomes a pair of new directors this year as Scott Strobel and Jackie Koonce join the Mighty Marching Maroon.
Strobel will be junior high band director and assistant high school band director, while Koonce will be assistant band director and choir director.
It is a study in contrast for these two new Jackrabbits. Strobel brings 30 years of experience to the band hall while Koonce begins with her first teaching assignment.

Meet both of these new band directors in your mid-week Bowie News. Read about the band’s exciting new marching program under the school tab and in the mid-week edition.
