Ryan Bradford

My son has been a percussionist in marching band, concert band, and winter percussion for the past three years.  During this time I have volunteered to help build props, move equipment, organize volunteers, organize the marching band car wash, and volunteered for the invitationals each season.  This past season I stepped into the Junior President position when it unexpectedly became available.  I have enjoyed working with the executive board and serving in this capacity for the band this past season.  I welcome the opportunity to continue serving as Senior President next year.

Dana Hooton

For the last ten years, it has been my great pleasure to be the mom of three daughters in the Fishers Band program who have played trumpet, flugelhorn, French horn, mellophone, and cymbals, who earned roles of soloists, section leaders, leadership team members, and drum major, who were in the marching band, winter guard, winter percussion, show choir band, jazz band, basketball band, participated in multiple solo and ensemble competitions, and two have gone on after their high school graduations to play in drum corps, college band, and community ensembles. During those years, I have participated in the Fishers Band Boosters in many ways from newsletter and concert and invitational program designs, invitational sponsorship sign and menu sign designs, Tiger Red design, fundraisers, event volunteering, sectional meals, food donations, braiding lots of hair, and most recently as the spirit wear coordinator. I’ve seen the booster program at its best and not-so-best, and there are a number of ideas I’d like to contribute in an effort to bring some interest and enthusiasm back to being part of the booster program, to evaluate what works and doesn’t work and make it streamlined for the next booster group, and ultimately to bring everyone together for a united cause – to support our directors, their staff and our band students.

Matt Bertasso

The Bertassos moved to Fishers a year ago and are thrilled to contribute to the Fishers Band program. I participated in various musical activities during high school, including marching trombone , drum major, winter percussion, and a bunch of choir stuff too. My career began as a music teacher and later as a high school principal, where I ensured the inclusion of music classes, even when told I wouldn’t have the funding for it, was honored as the Administrator of the Year by the Kentucky Music Educators Association (KMEA), and led the Savannah Arts Academy. The past year of building, pushing, and repairing props has been worth the front row seat of watching my kids grow up.

Nicole Dukes

Hello! My name is Nicole Dukes. I am the parent of Isaac Harmon, class of 27. I currently work for an IT company as a logistics coordinator. I also work at my church with the hospitality team as well as with the youth department. I would like to run for the position of Vice President on the Executive Board.  I feel with my expertise in organization, planning and working with the youth I would be a great asset to the board. If you don’t already know, I love to assist and help when and wherever I can. I already treat the children as if they are my own! I consider you all to be a part of my family so let’s get together and work!

Anne-Marie Rohe

Ann-Marie Rohe is a three-time band booster, with an older daughter who was in guard 4 years including cadet, a son who marched trumpet 1 year, and now her daughter is a freshman front ensemble member who also marched cadet.

Over the cumulative 7 years as a marching band parent, she has volunteered for chaperone, props, food donations, and this year has been  managing the public-facing band Facebook page and the private band parent group.

She believes her corporate career experience in marketing and communications will add a fresh perspective to the Board and to the Secretary role.

Ginnette Matthews

Hello, my name is Ginnette Matthews and I’m excited to join the Band Boosters Executive Board with Student Accounts.  This is my seventh year as a band parent, my oldest son finished his senior year with Chasing Starlight and my younger son just completed his cadet year.  I’ve also had the pleasure of being a Clarinet Section Parent for the past couple years. This program has been such an amazing experience for my family and I look forward to being able to help our program continue to grow and excel!
