Jim Kierstead Spirit Award
The Jim Kierstead Spirit Award was created in 2016 in memory of band alumnus[Jim Kierstead link=http://alumni.umassband.com/2016/obituary-jim-kierstead-1952-2016/]. Over the years Jim demonstrated his devotion to the band (and to UMass Amherst) in many ways. This award goes to a Minuteman Band member who also demonstrates that devotion in a non-leadership role.
