A special shout out and thank you to the KU hearing and Speech department, under the leadership of Dr. Tiffany Johnson, for the donation of a FREE pair of Etymotic ear filters for all SM North band students!  They’re normally $18 retail.  We’ve often received the “adopt-a-band” price of $8 in the past, but this year they are free of charge.  Again, a huge thank you to KU and Dr. Johnson!
