The Schachter family of Florida started this UConn scholarship in memory of their 14-year-old son who was killed in the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida in February 2018.
Gifts to this fund will help provide scholarships to students who, like Alex, always wanted to play in the UConn marching band. Gifts will support need and/or merit-based awards for incoming or continuing undergraduate students who are members of UCMB.

Gifts to this fund support need and/or merit-based scholarships for full-time undergraduate students who are members of the UConn Marching Band.
Doug Morgan ’86 Scholarship
The Doug Morgan ’86 Scholarship Fund was established in 2017 by friends and family of Doug Morgan. Doug honored us by sharing his infectiously fun-loving attitude and zest for life. This fund honors him by supporting what he loved the most at UConn (Marching Band). Current students who love the Band as much as Doug did and who aspire to help others will themselves be helped through this fund.
Allan E. Gillespie Band Scholarship
Gifts to the Allan E. Gillespie Band Scholarship Fund provide financial support for students in the UConn Marching or Concert Band.
Why Do You Give?
The UConn Marching Band played such an important part in my life! It was the highlight of my four years at UConn. I have such fond memories of band camp, trips to Wright’s Chicken Farm, playing in Disney World, band practice three times a week, playing in the rain, in the snow and in the heat! My life has been truly blessed because of the friends and memories I have from the UCMB! I was truly blessed to be a part of the UConn Family from 1988-1992.
Gwenn Gerken Noel '92 Donor, Dr. David L. Mills Fund
I give to support the UConn Marching Band because I was in the UCMB from 1974-1978 under the direction of Dr. Gillespie and David Maker. The experiences of the marching band are the most memorable from my 4 years at UConn. It’s a great institution of dedication, pride and excellence. Keep On Marching!
Jeanne Stamm '78 Donor, Dr. David L. Mills Fund
My years at UConn and as a member of the UCMB were invaluable in so many ways. I want to honor the time I spent there by perhaps making it easier for someone else to have the experience of a lifetime as well.
Maria ‘96 Donor, Marching/Pep Bands Fund
The UConn Marching Band has had a very special place in my life. I played in every band on campus during my years on the Storrs campus. During my sophomore year (1962), I founded Delta Omicron, the first chapter in New England of Kappa Kappa Psi, the national band fraternity. Eight new brothers joined D.O. during the fall 2013 semester. I am pleased and thankful to know that I have left a legacy at UConn with the formation of D.O. and to have heard from many KKY alumni how much this fraternity meant to them.
