I, LaQuinton Dawson, leave all of my hard work and late night practices to the underclassmen in the Drum line. You all are such talented percussionists and I can’t wait to see where you all are in the future. One thing I ask you not do, is quit. Never give up on something you are talented at doing. No matter how hard all the after school practices may get, no matter how tough music looks. NEVER GIVE UP! Cherish every moment in band and with the Drum line family. I love you all and there is nothing you can do about it.
My favorite band memory is when the Percussion Ensemble because Tennessee State Champs at WGI his sophomore year.
