Aguila worked with the Bellbrook High School winter guard unit during the 2016-17 school year as a part-time, contracted employee, Superintendent Doug Cozad said. Cozad said Aguila began a similar role with the school’s marching band color guard unit in July and August of 2017, but then left that month.
“He was not reliable enough with his attendance for him to continue,” Cozad said.
Troy and Bellbrook school officials said Aguila never had authority to spend any district or booster funds while working on contract in their schools.
Color guard and winter guard teams perform choreographed routines, sometimes with high school marching bands, combining costumed dancers with flag and mock rifle spinning. The Dayton region hosts the annual Winter Guard International championships.
