I am a currently a third year student at Georgia State University going into my last year for the Media Entrepreneurship program; I am also a Collins Hill 2018 Alumni. My passion and heathy addiction to colorguard began in my sophomore year of high school at Collins Hill. I joined the Fall program in 2015, and instantly fell in love with the sport. I then continued into the winter season where I was given a flag solo by the director at the time, Rachel Crozier. In my junior year, I joined the leadership program as a Co-Captain of the team for the “Boom” production, and joined the first Varsity winterguard program in 2019. However, during my fall season of senior year, I left the team and got the opportunity to teach choreography to Gainesville High School as a volunteer. In my winter season of 2018, the band director, Jeremey Lumpkin, allowed me to take on a contract with Reverie Independent Winterguard for their 2018 program titled “Bleu”. Winning 14th at WGI finals, I was so grateful to be apart of a program with professional teachers who offered me weapon and dance solos, which is where I met and learned from Ozzie Walters. When I started college at UGA in 2018, I was given an instructor position at Discovery High School for their summer band camp and Cedar Shoals High School for their entire fall season. In the fall of 2019, I transferred to Georgia State University and became involved in their colorguard program for 2019 and 2020 (also upcoming fall 2021). Most recently, I was able to find an instructor position with Locust Grove High School for their winter season. Though I could only teach one season with Locust Grove, I thank Georgia State for giving me that opportunity and knowledge to instruct. I’m so excited to work with the school that I am still proud to call my home!
