As a part of his Eagle Scout Service Project, senior Caleb Bean wanted to give back to Windber's music program. Caleb has been involved in the music program since 5th grade, and he felt it was vital in his development as a musician, student, and as a person. Caleb felt there was no practical way for elementary band students to learn how to play large mallet percussion instruments. While this may be an obscure need, as Caleb is a mallet player, it was extremely important to him. For his project, Caleb decided to create a PVC pipe marimba and donate it to Windber's elementary band program.
