I was a part of the Moon Area Marching Band from 8th grade to my senior year, and I played the trumpet during that time. I was a part of Jazz Band II my freshman and sophomore years, and I was a member of the Symphonic Band my junior and senior years. I did not end up pursuing music in my higher education, but I still thoroughly enjoyed my time in the instrumental music program. I made a bunch of friends, and I definitely grew in my skills of leadership, cooperation, teamwork, and responsibility. These skills are just some of many that will be developed while in band. I continue to utilize them in my everyday interactions with people, work, and life in general. I graduated from Grove City College in May 2017.
