Drum Major, Batons parade This year ' s head Drum Major was Robbin O ' Brien. The assistant Drum Major was Vicki Willis. Robbin led the band in the King Kamaha Day Parade in Honolulu, Hawaii in June of ' 78. She also led the band in several other parades and during half time performances at the home football games. The assistant helped out during practices and was always prepared to take over if necessary. Baton twirlers, Becky Taylor and Janis Squire, were a nice compliment to the Marching Band with their interesting routines. They performed at the Marching Band Contest and did very well. Becky is a senior, but we will be seeing Sophomore Janis Squire again next year. 1. Drum Major Robin O ' Brien practices good form to lead the band. 2.

Concert Band members show much enthusiasm This year ' s Concert Band was under the direction of Mr. Karl Killinger and assistant director, Mr. Paul Kuhns. Due to the large quantity of students participating, Mr. Killinger divided the group into two smaller groups. Both of the groups have equal playing abilities. Aside from their Christmas, Winter, and Spring Concerts, they also played for Class Day and Commencement. Many participated in events such as an All City Music Festival, honor bands, and a solo and ensemble festival. 1. J.R. Smith pauses for a picture while setting up for a first hour rehearsal. 2.
