The Dan Prybyski Leadership Award

During the 2012 Holiday Band Concert, a new award was introduced in memory of Dan Prybyski who died Dec. 31, 2010 at the age of 70. Dan was an avid supporter of the Bullock Creek Bands for many years.  Dan travelled with the band to band camp, and almost everywhere else that they went, and was an example of the qualities that make for good band members, and good citizens for that matter.  Some of Dan’s Qualities listed on the award, which are also the criterion used to choose the recipient are “Quiet Strength”, “Guardian”, “Friend to Everyone”, “Positive Role Model”,”Loyal”, and “Commitment to Youth”.
The Award also reads as follows:  ”With a confident smile and outreached hand, this simple man of quiet courage helped and encouraged band students past, present, and future.  His firm belief in the excellence of the young people in our community is reason to celebrate.  May Dan’s spirit of giving and passion for life continue on through the leadership qualities of our distinguished recipients.”


Congratulations to Gabrielle West and Kaitlyn Pratt, the winners of the 2017 Dan Prybyski Leadership Award.
The Award is presented at the High School Awards Night.
