President – Rachel Phipps

I am a graduate of Mt. Gilead High School. I work for Ohio State University Ophthalmology as a Surgical Coordinator. My husband John and I have been married since 2000. We have 2 children Alex and Ava. Alex is an active High School band member who plays trumpet just like his dad and grandmother. Ava is involved in the local dance studio as a dancer / acro. We have a dog named Sophie who is just like another kid and spoiled rotten.  Alex is currently finishing the last 2 months as Puppy Raiser for Pilot Dogs.  He has a Golden Retriever named Callie who is just under a year old.  She will eventually be placed as a service dog.
In my spare time I am help with my daughter’s dance studio as needed and of course being active with the Band Parents. I am really looking forward to spending another year with all the great talent of these band kids supporting them and their parents. I also find time to scrapbook, making jewelry and other various craft projects for craft shows during the year.
As an officer I really want to make a difference for our kids and help get more parent involvement.  I am also looking forward to finding more fundraising through various restaurants & events for our organization.  Please feel free to contact with any questions, concerns and  ideas.
