The Cougar Alumni Band is proud to sponsor the Randall Spicer Marching Band Scholarship since 2009. A $1500 scholarship will be awarded annually to a qualifying marching band member.

After retiring, Randall was instrumental in the establishment of the Cougar Alumni Band, and for several years, was deeply involved in its activities. Randall will always be remembered for his wealth of experience, human qualities of caring, phenomenal memory, constant optimism, and his ability to accept new interpretations, ideas and changes.
