Kristine Pye, our color guard instructor, has been accepted for membership to the Colts Drum and Bugle Corps. This professional corps that competes all over the country with Drum Corps International. This summer tour lasts approximately 75 days during which the corps will travel over 12,000 miles throughout the United States, participating in over 30 regional, national, and international performances and competitions.
Each member of the corps is responsible for a tuition and fee payment of up to $3,000, about 35% of the actual cost of transportation, lodging, meals, instruction, equipment, and uniforms. Fundraising and community support cover the majority of the organization's operating expenses.
A quote from Kristine..."A big part of the reason I have worked so hard for the last year to achieve a position in this corps if for my kids in the CMT. In my eyes, "they can learn as much as I am able to teach them," and by touring with this corps, my abilities, experience, work ethic, and responsibility will increase almost as much as my passion for the activity and my home, The Marching Terriers. I know that my students look up to me, and as a newly contracted member of a Drum Corps, I will teach them with that dignity, and if one day it is in their dream to perform in a corps-- you better believe that I will get them there. Working with them on my own for the first time this past year has been purely inspiring, and I owe it to my students to better myself, to better them."
The Carbondale Marching Terriers will be making a donation to Kristine to help her fund this wonderful opportunity. If you would like to contribute and be part of the Carbondale Marching Terriers donation, please click here to take you to our secure PayPal account.
