Senior Spotlight

This week, we are featuring our drumline seniors!

Iman Ahmad- My favorite band memory is meeting people from other bands during the WBA awards! After high school I plan to attend Indiana University double majoring in Biology and Political Science on the pre-med track.
Xander Barnes-My favorite memory is winning first place at state championships.
Christine Fielding-My favorite memories are times spent with friends talking late night
after comps or football games. I will attend Boston University,
study cell and molecular biology & genetics. I also hope to study
abroad & continue to evolve my love for playing music.
Andrew Kim- I am attending Loyola Marymount University to study psychology.
Naomi Larios-Going to Dayton for WGI finals & traveling with friends. I plan to join the United States Army
Anthony Maher- My favorite band memory would be traveling to Ohio to compete in Drumline Championships in 2019. The experience of traveling with friends and the adrenaline of competing in a professional competition was an experience like no other. I will attend Saddleback College and then transfer to a Four Year University. 
Andrew Smith-My plan for the future is to become a professional trumpet player.
