Katie Demyan Andy Grindle

Katie Demyan is a freshman Engineering major from Huttonsville, WV. She is a 2009 graduate of Tygarts Valley High School. Andy Grindle is a sophomore Music Education major from Fredericksburg, VA. He is a 2008 graduate of Brooke Point High School. Both are current members of the trumpet section.

The selection of the drum majors for our band is a process that we take very seriously. Being selected as a drum major for the WVU Marching Band is a great honor that carries with it great responsibility. The drum majors are not only responsible for the on-field conducting of the band, but they are also the public ???face??? of the band. They are the ultimate student representatives of the band. They must not only be an outstanding musician, but also a person of outstanding character.
