Petition to Retain Korey Parlin as

Marietta Wall of Sound Director

 

January 6, 2021

 

 

To whom it may concern:

 

​As members, parents and alumni of the Marietta Wall of Sound, we are extremely disheartened by the news that you have decided not to renew the contract of Band Director, Korey Parlin.

 

​Our band members, in recent years, have endured numerous directors and instability in the marching band program due to no fault of their own.  The Board finally hires a director with the experience and background to get our “Wall” back on the field, and you decide to let him go???  Our students have great respect for Mr. Parlin and this past marching season was the first year we had finally seen faces with hope.

 

​If you have never been in marching band, you would not understand the level of “community” we develop.  Our band becomes a family, on and off of the field.  A great deal of students thrive in band because that is where they fit in.  When the program keeps changing, our students lose hope that they will get to see the enjoyments of State Competitions and the joy that once was “The Wall of Sound”.

 

​We need to put the Marietta Wall of Sound back on the field.  The only way we can do that is with an experienced director like Mr. Parlin.

 

​We as the parents, students, members, alumni and community of Marietta respectfully ask that you reconsider your decision.  

 

​This community supports Korey Parlin as the Marietta Wall of Sound Director.
