My plan after high school is to attend Northern State University in Aberdeen, majoring in criminal justice.

One of my favorite memories from the band was traveling to different competitions. Even though I couldn’t perform in the small group contest this year. I still had a lot of fun playing music. whether that was in a group ensemble or a solo performance.
