Boyd McKeown Marietta Band Association Endowment
As many in the Marietta family already know, beloved Band Director Mr. Boyd McKeown passed away this past Sunday at the age of 93. In 1961 the senior class dedicated the Olympian yearbook of that year in honor of Boyd. That dedication fittingly and accurately speaks to who Boyd was, not just to the MHS, but to the community at large. It reads:
- You work tirelessly at all times to present to others MHS at its best.
- You initiate in us an interest in values which will remain with us.
- You contribute your time to community projects which support MHS students.
- You possess admirable traits which you recognize and develop in students.
- Most of all, you understand the WAYS OF STUDENTS.
- We, the senior class of 1961, pay tribute to you, Mr. Boyd McKeown.
In 2007 the MHS Band Endowment was established at the MSF to benefit the MHS Band program. In 2014 thru Boyd’s assistance in helping to build this endowment, it was renamed the Boyd McKeown Marietta Band Association Endowment.
