By BRENDAN KIRBY Staff Writer North Hagerstown High School Principal David Reeder Tuesday attempted to reassure anxious parents about the health of the school's marching band, in spite of the absence of its longtime leader. Addressing a band boosters club meeting Tuesday night, Reeder said he also expects the band to participate in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York, despite language in the invitation that seems to suggest the offer is contingent on Noel Kunkle being the director.

When Dave Reeder became principal at North Hagerstown High School during the summer of 1995, he went to the gym where the football players were lifting weights, and started bench pressing heavier and heavier weights. As he moved up to 405 pounds on the bench press, curious students approached him, only to discover Reeder was their new principal. Reeder said it seemed a good way to integrate himself into the school culture during the summer months before the school year started.

By KERRY LYNN FRALEY Staff Writer North Hagerstown High School Principal David F. Reeder wasn't crazy about the idea of moving his office up to the roof. But Reeder, 40, promised his students he would pull the silly stunt if enough of them promised to not drink and drive on prom night. The school's Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) group asked Reeder to pledge to do "something crazy" to help its Prom Promise card drive, he said. Going up on the roof seemed the best of the proposed options, including shaving his head, said Reeder, who in the past has had his tie cut, his face splattered with pies and his moustache shaved after successful challenges.
