A story in the Sept. 24 edition of ThisWeek Pickerington about funding for the Pickerington High School Central Marching Band's trips to the Tournament of Roses Parade and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade incorrectly said the school is paying a portion of each student's expenses. The school is not assisting with trip costs. The story quoted Mayor Mitch O'Brien as saying the city and Violet Township trustees would contribute funds to cover the $7,000 needed for students to make the trips. This is not the per-pupil cost; it's what is needed to assist approximately 20 students, according to band director Mike Sewell, who said the total cost for the combined trips is $1,575 per student. He said all families who requested assistance have raised at least half of the amount needed.
