Alumni have always played a key role in the Stevenson Instrumental Program by contributing their time and skills to enhance the experience of the current set of students. Alumni, like you, have the distinct advantage of truly understanding that Attitude + Respect + Commitment = Success.
After graduates take an approximately one year break following graduation, Mr. Sekich is happy to welcome back alumni to assist in various roles. Main opportunities for returning alumni include working as a Stafferone at away camp and by volunteering at Stevenson, especially during marching season.
Volunteering as an alumni has many benefits. In addition to giving back to the program - as others before you did - to help Stevenson Band students continue a tradition of excellence, you'll also be able to earn honors and/or service hours while attending college/university.

Hail Hail to the Titans
Our victory march has just begun
Though the battles long may rage
They’ll all fall before us
'Cause we’re number one
And when the Titans march to victory
You better hear what we say
'Cause we will fight, fight, fight
And we will win tonight
Because we’re Titans all the way!
