“I am very excited to begin this new chapter in my life,” said Goss. “I have been blessed to work in the Ephrata Area School District with a wonderful and supportive community. My hope is to bring my various levels of experience in the field of marching band to further enhance the music education experience for our students.”

Goss replaces Adam Nobile, who resigned his post to accept a full-time position in the Big Spring School District. Nobile was hired prior to the 2012-13 school year.
