Ross Schumker School Song

Ross Schumaker, an instrumental music teacher at Riverbend Middle School, took on a self-imposed project, and combined the school fight song lyrics for Alden and Iowa Falls into one song for Iowa Falls-Alden students. Schumaker said he is not sure if the new lyrics would be approved by the Iowa Falls School Board.

When Ross Schumaker attended his first home Iowa Falls-Alden football game in 2017, the instrumental music teacher saw how enthusiastic the community, band members and cheerleaders were about rooting for the Cadets.

But when the band began to play the school fight song, he noticed something else.

Ross Schumaker said it was a unique circumstance that both Alden and Iowa Falls each had its own set of lyrics to the 'On Wisconsin' school fight song. He's hopeful his new combined lyrics will satisfy alumni of both schools.
