Flags Flying High – The Color Guard

In addition to the winds, brass, and percussion, the SUMB has a color guard. This section provides visual accent and, in essence, makes the band look good. The color guard also contains the Orange Girl, a featured twirler, Junior Meghan Sinisi. Get to know these sparkling faces in this week’s Section Leader Spotlight!
