In 2007, Julie Ann Benken, longtime Drum Major and Staff member for the band program at the University of Cincinnati, passed away after a long and recurring bout with breast cancer. She left in her wake a strong desire to recognize Drum Majors in some way – a project her family shared in both determination and zeal.
