Asst. Color Guard Instructor
Sean is currently a third year student at Georgia State University going in his last year for the Media Entrepreneurship program; He is also a Collins Hill 2018 Alumni. His passion and heathy addiction to color guard began in my sophomore year of high school at Collins Hill. He joined the Fall program in 2015, and instantly fell in love with the sport. He then continued into the winter season where he was given a flag solo by the director at the time, Rachel Crozier. In his junior year, he 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 his fall season of senior year, he left the team and got the opportunity to teach choreography to Gainesville High School as a volunteer. In his winter season of 2018, the band director, Jeremey Lumpkin, allowed him to take on a contract with Reverie Independent Winterguard for their 2018 program titled “Bleu”. Winning 14th at WGI finals, he was so grateful to be apart of a program with professional teachers who offered him weapon and dance solos, which is where he met and learned from Ozzie Walters. When he started college at UGA in 2018, he 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, he transferred to Georgia State University and became involved in their color guard program for 2019 and 2020 (also upcoming fall 2021). Most recently, he was able to find an instructor position with Locust Grove High School for their winter season. Though he could only teach one season with Locust Grove, he thanks 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!” – Sean
