Greg Kraft, a band student at Laney, made the Spirit of Atlanta Drum and Bugle Corps. This is a very prestigious group.

Not only has he earned a spot with a world class drum and bugle corps at 15 yrs old, but he aspires to serve in the USMC in the Commandant's Own drum and bugle corps...and all of this comes out of his middle and high school band experiences.  He had never touched an instrument prior to playing in the band in middle school and then in high school.  

Greg will be spending 3 months this spring/summer working 12-14 hrs/day marching and playing.  He will travel over 10,000 miles while on tour, performing in over 19 venues including Colt stadium.  His SoA corps played the opener for NASCAR at the Atlanta Speedway last month, playing America the Beautiful. 

He and his parents tribute his work with band and SoA as having helped him with time management and organization...which has filtered into his other courses...helping him keep his grades better than ever!
