In every band production, there are a group of people that help make the production fun to watch. While musicians are playing their instrument and moving from one place to another, there is another group of students that aren’t playing instruments. These students are tossing rifles, sabres and flags. They are known as the color guard.
”My older brother was a part of the band, and I saw how much he loved it. I saw how positive the environment was and I wanted to be a part of it.” - Logan Liles
Since Logan didn’t play any instruments, she decided to join the color guard, a decision she says is “easily the best” one she’s ever made. This is the third year for the junior to be a part of the color guard.
”My favorite part about being in the color guard is getting to perform. Performing is such an amazing feeling that I can’t even begin to explain.” - Liles
Being a junior means Liles was a part of the State Champion Marching band last year. While she says the experience was amazing as well as a little terrifying, she also says it’s something she will cherish and never forget.
After high school, Logan is planning on becoming a Registered Nurse in the Air Force. After a few years, she’ll go back and get her BSN. When she’s not twirling a rifle and/or flag, she likes to hang out with her friends and family and watch a lot of Netflix.
Let’s get to know Logan a little better:
