Katherine “Kat” Anderson – Secretary Nominee
“My name is Kathrine “Kat” Anderson and I’m interested in the position of Secretary for the 2017 season.

I am married to Tate Anderson who you see volunteer tearing with the Pit Crew on a regular basis the past two years. We have 4 children. My oldest daughter, Kara, is 20 and is living in Parker. My son, Ryan, is a Junior this year at Legend and plays trumpet. He participates in marching band, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band, pit for the musical, and pep band. My next daughter, Savannah, is currently a 7th grader at Parker Performing Arts and will be joining the marching band with her brother playing trumpet. Her main instrument is her violin and she also dances and loves music theatre. My youngest daughter, Téa, is currently a 5th grader at Parker Performing Arts. She plays the flute and loves ballet and jazz dancing.

My background is mostly as a musician. I play violin with the Arapahoe Philharmonic and can also play piano and clarinet. For three years I was the Secretary for the Orchestra Advisory Committee for the Arapahoe Philharmonic. I have also been the chairman of the Hospitality Committee and my daughters school. Lastly, I am the current Secretary for the Legend Band Programs for the 2016 season.

I love being a part of the Legend High School band programs and have thoroughly enjoyed volunteering my time in various aspects of the program, watching these amazing kids perform as well as grow as musicians and people. It’s a pleasure getting to know the parents and kids in the group and seeing how well people come together for the common good of the band.

Thank you for your consideration!”
