Donation enabled NKHS Winter Guard to compete

The North Kitsap Winter Guard would like to thank Kitsap Lumber of Bremerton for their generous donation of $3,000 to fund its 2014 competition season.

Winter Guard is a rigorous performance art, combining dance and movement while spinning flags, rifles and sabers. The NKHS Winter Guard competed in three competitions: Bonney Lake on March 1, Kamiak on March 15 and regional championships at Cascade High School on March 29. Last season, the guard took third place under the direction of Susan Peters.

This season’s show, titled “Lost Love” and performed to the song “Give Me Love” by Ed Sheeran, was written and coached by Miss Jessica Criswell. Jessica is a Klahowya graduate and former member of the independent guard, Full Circle of the Sound. Ellen Strong is acting as parent volunteer coordinator, and I am the faculty adviser.

The money so generously donated by Kitsap Lumber allowed the guard to pay the competition fees, purchase much-needed equipment, including flags and backdrops, as well as pay for the salary of the coach.
