Band Secretary- Amanda Devine Hello, I'm Amanda Devine, I am running for the position of Secretary. I graduated Salutatorian from Harrison College in 2014/15 with my associate degrees in Medical Assisting & Medical Reimbursement Technology. I currently work for Columbus Regional Hosptial as a Medical Support Analyst Refund Auditor, for the Hospital and All the Associated Physicians' Offices Associated with CRH. My husband Nathan and I just celebrated our 15th year anniversary, we have 1 daughter -Bella a Freshman Guard member (2nd year color/winter guard), we have 2 sons Nathan (20), Kal-el (17) graduated high school early(online) and is starting college in May. We have a Boston Terrier named James Kirk and 3 exotic animals a red-eared slider (turtle-Sam), a bearded dragon (Amara) and a hedgehog (Lilo). I am an avid crafter and LOVE teaching people how to take ordinary objects and to turn them into things they never thought of. I love being a part of my daughter's world and being a part of this band family helps me to do that. This is the second year I have volunteered as the "seamstress" for the color guard, worked at invitationals, been a chaperone, prop crew, ect. It does not matter if it's for the Guard or the Band my philosophy has always been and will always be " I Go where the Need Is". I have had the opportunity to make the most amazing band parent friends through this program because of volunteering and feel truly blessed. I like things to be organized which is why I am running for Secretary; I like the I's to be dotted and the T's to be crossed. With what I do for a living if you didn't write it down it didn't happen, so note taking is my jam. I am also the Raise Right person for North, so I have to keep records and run reports every month so being secretary is in my wheelhouse. I believe in this organization; I have seen the great things it has done for our kids, and I would be proud to be an even bigger part of this. Thank you!
