From an Impulse press release: Drum corps veteran Charlie Groh has been named Impulse's executive director. He is responsible for the four units under the Impulse umbrella: Pulse (winter percussion ensemble), Jade (winter guard), Rhythm Regiment, and the Impulse drum corps. The new director for the drum corps is Ike Jackson, who has served the organization as percussion caption head and staff coordinator. On behalf of the entire Impulse youth arts organization, we want to thank past executive director Dave Meade for the superhuman contributions that he has made over the past six years. Meade remains a board member and has graciously made himself available to provide information and to answer organizational questions.
