Troopers_100x100The Troopers Drum and Bugle Corps are pleased to announce their 2017 Caption Head team.

Program & Staff Coordinator Donnie VanDoren had great things to say about the upcoming Troopers season along with his insights on the quality of staff being brought on board.

“Over the past four years, we have established and maintained a methodical and calculated course of development in an effort to build a solid foundation and future. Our Caption Head team for 2017 strengthens our effort and allows us to move forward at an even greater pace in this regard.

With Anthony Cruddas and Lauren Teel leading the brass and percussion programs respectively, along with the addition of Susan Hanggi leading the color guard program and Todd Clevenger and Pat Miller leading the visual program, I couldn’t be happier with the maturity, experience, professionalism and educational approach that this team brings to the Troopers. The role modeling and education that our students will receive is second to none. Our kids are in really good hands.

Our Caption Heads are putting together their caption teams now. Full staff announcements by caption to come over the next week or so.”

-Donnie VanDoren, Program & Staff Coordinator
