description
Barbara Trautwein has become a staple of Wake Forest University and is affectionately known as "Mzeztee" to those in the community. She first joined the University faculty in 1985 as the Director of Bands and took the initiative to create the Women's Basketball Pep Band beginning that year. Trautwein served as the Assistant Director of Athletic Bands from 1994 to 2005. She currently serves as the Advisor to the Spirit of the Old Gold and Black (SOTOGAB). In this interivew, Trautwein discusses her start in music beginning in high school and her decision to pursue this throughout college. Throughout, her energy and enthusiasm for Wake Forest University and Demon Deacon athletics is palpable even through Zoom. Trautwein talks about the difficulties women experienced in athletics during her time at the University and her support of women's teams despite their lack of funding.
