We are saddened to report the loss of a great friend of Preucil School of Music.  Ron Reed, former Trustee and Board President passed away February 5, 2018.  Ron served on the Board from 1999 to 2010 and as Board President from 2000 to 2010.

During his tenure, funds were raised to build the North Campus building, the building was built and the 2008 financial crisis was endured.  Ron worked tirelessly supporting the School’s Management and leading the Board through some tough financial decisions. Ron’s contribution to Preucil School of Music is evident today in many ways from the wonderful North Campus Building and the secure financial position the school is in today.
