Valerie Miller '19

Valerie Miller is from Oak Park, IL and is planning to double major in Sociology and Environmental Studies and minor in French. Valerie loves the camaraderie of band, the feeling of anticipation before a performance, and seeing the progress the group makes from the beginning to the end of the season. She is also a stellar badminton player and pogo stick jumper.

Sarah Nwia '19

Sarah Nwia is from Glenview, Illinois. She is a sophomore at Tulane, studying biomedical engineering. Sarah's favorite thing about marching band is the community that develops among its members and the idea that we are all working towards a common goal. At school, Sarah is involved in ballroom dance and Kappa Kappa Psi. Her favorite TV show is Game of Thrones and she loves to play board games! Sarah says "The 2016-2017 TUMB season is going to be phenomenal, and I’m honored to be a part of the student leadership. Roll wave!"
