CVHS BPO Executive Board 2018-19

 

Jason Geroux - President

My name is Jason Geroux and my son, Connor, plays the Clarinet in the Marching Band and the bass clarinet in the Wind Ensemble. I have had the privilege of being a part of the band program as a supportive parent during his freshman year...and then as a parent volunteer on the advisory board for the BPO for his sophomore year. I am thrilled to be the President of the BPO this year, and I have been amazed by the growth and accomplishments of the students, under the direction of a staff that is second to none. I truly believe that when we all work together, even greater things can be accomplished in the coming years! I believe that music has a lasting impact, not only on those who are blessed enough to hear it performed, but even more so on the performers themselves. I am very excited with every chance I get to talk about this program with members of the community and cannot wait to see what the coming years bring for this fantastic group of students! I look forward to the chance to know each of you, and to serve alongside of you. I am thrilled with the opportunity to work with a devoted team of parent volunteers to develop even more community support for our students, including more media involvement, local town involvement and business sponsorship/support for the program. Through these partnerships, our ensembles can have the room to achieve their maximum potential and influence and to inspire countless members of our community through music.


Roy Woodruff - Vice President

Hi, my name is Roy Woodruff and I am currently serving as the Vice President of the BPO Board. This is my third year volunteering with the BPO and my second year on the Advisory Board. My son, Dalton, plays the trumpet and is currently in the Marching Band, Wind Ensemble, and Jazz Band, and volunteers in the United Sound program. In addition, he plays the piano. I am married to Debbie Woodruff, who is also a BPO volunteer, and have one older son, Derek, who is also musically talented and plays the drums, saxophone, and guitar. Even though my musicality is limited to “singing in the shower”, I am fascinated by the Band Programs offered here at Campo Verde. I was a self proclaimed “band-aid” in high school and hung with the Dobson High Marching Band students, so I understand the hard work involved and the time commitment our students are making. I have a special place in my heart for the United Sound program as I spent 15 years working with adults and children with special needs in a previous career and have seen first-hand the benefits of programs whose major purpose and goal is integration and instilling a sense of community and friendship. I currently work at Microchip Technology as a Software Engineer. In my spare time, I enjoy working with the Boy Scouts (where I have held numerous leadership positions), researching my family’s genealogy, and traveling.


Lesley Davis - Secretary

My name is Lesley Davis and this is my first year as Secretary for the BPO. My youngest son is new to Campo Verde this year as a freshman and plays alto saxophone in the Concert band. My oldest, is a junior and is in the Marching Band, Wind Ensemble and Green Jazz Band. My husband and I have been active volunteers for the band since my oldest son’s freshman year and I served as the uniform chair for the 2016/2017 school year. We have seen first-hand, the growth of this program and the great things it does for the students and families. I am a City Planner by trade and have worked with many citizen and neighborhood boards over the years. I look forward to serving this band in a more formal capacity and watching the continued growth and success of this program.


Rebecca Kapp - Treasurer

My name is Rebecca Kapp and I currently serve as the Treasure for the BPO Board. My oldest son, Trent, plays for the Jazz Band, Marching Band, Winter Drum Line and volunteers as a mentor for United Sound. For the past couple of years, while volunteering for various band events, I have been very impressed with the amount of band parents who come together to volunteer; all with a common goal to help our kids do great! It is an honor to be a part of the BPO Board to help with and to continue their success. My credentials consist of a wide range of financial and accounting experience with the ownership of three profitable companies, as well as an extensive background in marketing and event planning. Personal interests include architecture, art, traveling and spending time with family.


Lisa Morse - Member at Large

Bio Coming Soon


Rene Nasluchacz - Member at Large (Past President)

I am Rene' Nasluchacz, mom of Christian, Bari Sax Senior in Wind Ensemble and Marching Band. He has been active in the band program since his Freshman year and continues to reap the benefits of music education, teamwork, and rich life experiences. We attended our first General BPO meeting when Christian was in eighth grade and became interested in the CVHS Band programs. Thanks to a boundary exception approval, we have been enthralled and blessed since! I have had the honor of being the CVHS BPO President for the past two years and amazed by the growth, accomplishments, and inspired by our young adults each day. It has taken me several decades to realize inspiration comes from within and is fueled by thoughts, words, actions, habits, and character. I am in awe of the persistence of our band and guard members and devoted staff because they are focused, resilient, enthusiastic, and bold. Though my formal education and profession includes several degrees and credentials, these things take a backseat to my volunteer experience at Campo. The most precious components of life rest within relationships, music, art, compassion, and people sharing life connected. The CVHS Band Program brings all of these treasures to the forefront, shining light in the dark places and forever leaving fingerprints on all who choose to be involved. I am privileged to continue my involvement with the BPO as a member at large and exuberant about being actively involved in my son's Senior year. I wouldn't miss it for the world! The BEST is yet to come!


Anna Nolan - Member at Large

My name is Anna Nolan, and I'm happy to be serving as one of the BPO Members at Large this school year. My husband, Shannon, and I have four children, ages 12, 14, 16, and 18. Our oldest son graduated last year after four years as a double bassist with the CVHS orchestra program and two with the Copper Jazz Band. This year, we're proud to have two kids involved in the CVHS band program. Our daughter, Grace, plays flute with the marching band and the Wind Ensemble. Ethan is a freshman this year and will play baritone in marching band and the new Symphonic Band, as well as trombone in the Green Jazz Band. While I've personally always been more of a choir kid, I have always loved surrounding myself with orchestra and band music from a young age. I have experience as a professional vocalist, and I am active as a teacher and music minister at my church, where my husband the youth music director. Professionally, I work from my home office as a social media director and copywriter for School Webmasters, a company that builds and maintains school websites and social pages. I'm also on the administrative staff with Chandler Children's Choir—a premier, East Valley youth choir where my youngest daughter has been a member for 5 years—as a social media and marketing specialist. I also love reading and writing, traveling (even if it just means going out to dinner with the husband), trivia (the more trivial, the better), and watching silver screen movies. I have been in awe of the exceptional value our CVHS music programs have added to my children's high school experience. While I've always been a proponent of letting our kids spread their wings on their own, I also understand the importance of parental involvement when it comes to supporting them and helping "backstage" to make programs like this one possible. I'm excited to serve alongside the other amazing parents in our program, at the prospect of helping the organization meet its goals, and to help represent the needs and interests of other band parents as the program grows.
