Gabriela Rosales-White Named to Prestigious Drum and Bugle Corps
Gabi will perform with the Music City Drum and Bugle Corps as a member of their Color Guard!
A proud "Hornet Highlight" from Gabi's parents, Steven and Shelley White: "We are proud to announce that Gabriela has been accepted as a Color Guard member in the Music City Drum and Bugle Corps for the 2015 season. Music City will be taking the field this summer with Drum Corps International’s elite during a tour that will take them throughout an eight state area with a completion of the season at Lucas Oil Stadium for DCI’s World Class Finals, August 6-8. The Corps is under the direction of David Boggs, former member of the Cavaliers; he has taught at both Indiana University and Purdue University, and is the marching band director for McKendree University in Illinois.
Not only is this an opportunity of a lifetime for Gabriela to march drum corps during her Senior year of high school, this also a chance to utilize a scholarship program to attend McKendree University. Gabriela has worked hard for the last eight seasons for the Beech Grove Marching Hornets and Winter Guard. She will tour this summer, representing Beech Grove, “With Pride!” Gabriela will be inducted into the National Honor Society on May 14, 2015 and has maintained high honors with a current GPA of 3.79. She also is a member of the National Technical Honor Society through Central Nine Career Center.
As most of you know, this a quite an accomplishment, but one that comes with fees. If you are able to donate to her experience and color guard education, go to www.musiccitydrumcorps.org, select at the top of the page “Sponsor A Member” and follow the instructions to help her start the next phase of her exciting journey. PayPal account registration is not needed, as payment can be made by selecting the “Pay with debit or credit card” option. Any and all donations would be greatly appreciated.

A Wonderful "Hornet Highlight"
A "Hornet Highlight" from proud Mom, Brenda Wilson: "Within these last two weekends, BGHS student Hunter Wilson placed Overall First in two of the Feis (fesh) Competitions that he competed in! That qualified him for NATIONALS and he will be competing in Rhode Island on July 4th.
Hunter competed in Columbus and Dayton Ohio April 25/ 26.
He placed Overall First on Saturday in Columbus and Overall Second on Sunday in Dayton.
He needed two Overall Firsts to qualify for Nationals. So, we did not think he made it.
His instructor, Heather Timm, found out that last weekend's Milwaukee Feis would count towards The Nationals. We were able to sign him up to compete, last minute, and drove to Milwaukee Friday night.
Saturday, Hunter placed Overall First for the second time!
Not only did this qualify him for The Nationals; this moved him from the Preliminary Championship Competition level to the Open Championship Competition level of Irish Dance. Open Championship is the highest competition level for the dancers and this is a HUGE accomplishment for Irish Dancers competing in Solos!
