Emmert first came to Phantom Regiment as a marching member in 1982-83 and 1988 and was visual caption head from 2005 to 2013. Since that time, he has served the corps in numerous support roles as was allowed by his year-round Fine Arts administrative position at the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation. He has been a music educator in Indiana and Florida since 1989 and has taught Glassmen and Madison Scouts in addition to Phantom Regiment.
“Arts education is so important for students and the marching arts leads the way in incorporating life skills to the mix,” Emmert said. “Being on the educational team that brings this to the 2020 members will be yet another opportunity I get to cherish with the Phantom Regiment.”
