THE STUDENT STAFF - LOVINGLY KNOWN AS THE  "BLUE VESTS" 

DSC_6443VanderCook students hold true the tradition of working the Midwest Clinic as usher and set up crew staff.  Anytime you see someone handing out programs or moving equipment, it will likely be a VanderCook student.  They are ready to give you the best Midwest experience possible, so give them a nice pat on the back as you go by.
