“Captain Alto Saxophone/Mellophone section & President.”

Q: Why did you run for President and audition for Saxophone Captain?

“Prior to running, I wasn’t a leader in other organizations. However, the past President Marianna Schrack inspired me to further myself in this organization as well as others in the senior high. With Saxophone captain, I was the only incoming senior, so it just felt right. Ever since freshman year, past upperclassmen had prepared for this position.”

Q: Hardest part of being President/Sax Captain?

“The last minute knowledge of activities, overall time crunches within the organization is the hardest to plan as President. Being the Saxophone captain, transitioning frombeing a friend to an authoritative figure is the hardest part. Losing the past seniors was hard, and now I know what past upperclassmen felt.”

“While we do work extremely hard for the results we produce, moments in between will make the most lasting & important memories in your high school career.”
