What do you enjoy most about being in band?
The friendships we make and the family we become.

Favorite Band Experience?
Taking the field in an NFL stadium and being on the massive screen. That isn’t something most high school students can say they’ve done.

What other activities are you involved in?
Marching Band, Jazz Band, NHS, and I’m also interning at George Boom

What advice do you have for younger band students?
Keep with it even if it gets hard. You have to push yourself to become better and that only happens if you are willing to put the work in.

Tell us something about yourself that otherwise we wouldn’t know or guess.
I love rock climbing and would really like to do more of it in college.

What are your plans after graduation?
I’m attending the University of Minnesota and majoring in mortuary science. I’m auditioning for marching band and continuing band through college
