A big step up

Most people try to pack in as many steps in a day as possible.

But for K-State marching band members, their new home saves them more than 31 million steps. That’s how many total steps it took to get the 400-piece band from McCain to the practice field at Memorial Stadium during one season.

Thanks to a lead gift from Ward and Brenda Morgan, and hundreds of other donors, the Tracz Family Band Hall resides in the renovated west side of Memorial Stadium, right next to the band’s practice field.

Now that all the band instruments, uniforms and gear live in one place, band members get their steps in by practicing their formations and not from schlepping their gear across campus.
