Katie Demyan is a Sophomore Engineering major from Huttonsville, WV. This will be her second year as Drum Major. She is a 2009 graduate of Tygarts Valley High School. Jesse Stout is a Sophomore History major from Bath, Pennsylvania. He is a 2009 graduate of Northampton Area Senior High School.

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.
