Pierre TF Riggs High School Band Senior Spotlight: Hayden Sayer by band director Mackenzie McKeithan Jensen.
Hayden has been a percussionist with the Riggs Band, Emerald Regiment marching band, and PIERREcussion drumline for four years. He has been drum set player for two years in jazz bands, joined the musical pit band this year, and served as Drumline co-captain this year.
My plan after high school is to attend Northern State University in Aberdeen, majoring in criminal justice.
