    At the Annual Veteran’s Memorial concert OSUMB Director, Dr John Woods, announced Josh Halter as the 2009 Most Inspirational Bandsperson. Josh is the 9th Drum Major to win the award, and the 3rd Drum Major in the past 10 years to win as well. The Most Inspirational Bandsperson award is recognized as the top honor given by the marching band to any member. What makes it so special is that the recipient is selected by votes from all Marching Band Peers and Directors.

    Josh Halter is a senior business major from Lakewood, Ohio. Before coming to Ohio State Josh was a two-year drum major for Lakewood High School and one of the first participants in the Drum Major training program, along with fellow Drum Major and Most Inspirational Bandsperson, Stewart Kitchen (Drum Major 2006-2007).

    The Most Inspirational Bandperson Award is in its 52nd year, with the first recipient being bandsman V. James Polidora in 1957.
