In Honor of Dr. Manahan’s Retirement – A Super Trumpet!


In special recognition his support of music education, and the many times he played his trumpet alongside Mount Si Pep Band students during high school games, MSHS Band Director Bill Leather presented Dr. Manahan with a very special retirement gift.  Staff, parents, students, community members and administrators pitched in to purchase a beautiful new Bach Stradavarius Trumpet, which has a special engraved “Go Cats” message. The gift also included a special invitation to visit and tour the factory where the instrument was made in Elkhart, Indiana.


Thanks to all who contributed. He was thoroughly surprised and delighted!

If you attended the Senior Car Parade June 12 in the vicinity of Center Blvd., you may have heard him playing the MSHS Fight Song. Here’s a brief video of his performance, while watching the procession with other School Board members.
