Lewis Poche ’15 Recognized at SASI Drum Major Leadership Camp

CHS Co Drum Major Lewis Poche and SJA Co Drum Major Hannah Keller attended the SASI Drum Major Leadership Camp at the University of Houston on June 30 through July 3.

While at camp, high school drum majors from across the South developed a variety of leadership strategies as well as a personal understanding of what it means to lead. SASI used kinesthetic, auditory and visual learning elements to guide participants through deliberate and purpose-filled exercises resulting in personal and organizational growth.

Poche and Kellerí´s team leader was Evan VanDoren, a two time drum major of the Drum Corps International (DCI), a professional marching band with the Carolina Crown. He won best drum major in all of DCI.

íÍWe learned different tips regarding conducting, leading, marching and teaching. I really learned a lot of tips that I cannot wait to implement in our band,íñ says Poche.
