Colts Add Jason Schubert To Full-Time Staff
September 7, 2016
Jason Schubert, 2016 Colts tour director and drum major in his age-out year (2014), joins the Colts full-time office staff as director of operations and media. In his new role, Jason will be responsible for all social media, maintenance of the Colts website, member recruitment, preseason auditions and camp logistics, housing, and summer tour management.
"I couldn't be more excited to be working with the Colts in an increased capacity," said Jason. "It's been incredible seeing the organization transform and grow over my six years of involvement, and I'm looking forward to taking a bigger role in the overall direction of the corps and the organization as a whole. Right now, there are a lot great things happening for Colts, and for the entire drum corps activity, and that makes the work so enjoyable and exciting. Every day is different and brings in new challenges, new ideas, and new people."
Jason will work alongside Colts Director Vicki MacFarlane in helping prepare the Colts for the upcoming season. They are currently finalizing staff and preparing for the Colts auditions in November, as well as working on the new building in advance of the Colts move later this month.
"I am beyond excited to have Jason in house and to work with him year-round," said Vicki. "His communication level, attention to detail and passion for our programs are top notch. He brings a fresh skill set to the organization, especially in regard to the ever-changing world of social media. His experiences as a member, drum major, staff member and tour director all provide a great foundation for his new role with the Colts organization."
