“ This past year, I have seen Ryan further develop as a musician and a person. He is always prepared for rehearsals and clearly sets an expectation of diligence, dedication, and focus for himself and for his fellow band members. As Drum Major, Ryan leads extra rehearsals, communicates with the band, organizes events, and demonstrates passion through his own efforts. What most impresses me about Ryan is his compassion and empathy for other students. His ability to communicate and relate with his peers shows how deep his consideration for others truly is.” Laura Ayer, Band Director
