For what may be for the first time ever, the Wildcats Marching Band will have not one, not two, but three drum majors next year. Tryouts were held last week.
McCauley said 10 band members tried out for drum major for next year. He commended all 10 for their amazing try-out. The three chosen are Emily Johnson, a junior next year, Carlos Williams, a senior next year, and Gillem Boyar, a senior next year. Williams will also serve as a tuba player in the band. The three will alternate in leading during the half-time and competitive season next fall. McCauley said the strength of Williams ability with the tuba will be needed during specific performances.
