Blue Knights Volunteer Spotlight: Nicky Kroge
Meet Nicky Kroge of Boulder, CO. Her two boys Jamey (Baritone) and Caley (Contra) first made the Blue Knights Drum and Bugle Corps in 2012. Jamey aged out at the conclusion of the 2015 season. Caley has one more year of eligibility.
A little background on Nicky. Her husband is the founder and artistic director of Ars Nova Singers, a local semi-pro choir. Throughout its 30-year existence, Nicky volunteered in a variety of ways, including ticket sales, catering events, and whatever else needed to be done. She’s also been an active volunteer with the Fairview HS marching band: mainly taking care of uniforms throughout the boys’ time in high school, and again now that her youngest, Chloe, has joined the ranks. Nicky works full time as a special ed and literacy teacher in Boulder, which entails lots of committee work along with the “regular” demands of a teaching job. And, she’s also in the church choir. During her younger years she “was a choir and theater kid.” Her boys brought her into “the strange world of band.”
