The SW Marching Trojans have grown from 52 members in 2013 to 75 in 2016 and were able to add a full color guard this year!

How the band will benefit from a grant:
The band just purchased a full drumline with a set of new harnesses, which will allow twice the number of students to participate in Drumline and will help those participating to have less back and neck pain from the weight of the instruments.
