THE SOUNDS OF DYN-O-MITE
It has been an honor to be a member of the Sounds of Dyn-O-Mite marching band. It is definitely an experience that I’m glad to have. For the past 4 years, the band has taught me to have dedication, confidence, strong self- control, and leadership skills that I didn’t have before. Being a part of the leadership team has taught me that even when things aren’t right, be the bigger person, put your best foot forward, and never let the negative nancies get to you. I am grateful for being chosen as one of the band captains for the band, because it comes with great responsibilities, meaning that the staff thought of me as trustworthy and dependable. Also being a female in a male dominant program can be tough sometimes but you have to give respect in order to receive and I thank everyone who did just that. The Sounds of Dyn- O- Mite is more than a marching band, we are a family. If you know me, I tell everybody I love them. So thank you S.O.D. for treating me well these past years, unforgettable moments, memories for a lifetime, and my family away from home… I love you !
