I'd like to thank my Big Brother, Nick for being one of the greatest friends I've made while in college. Always happy, supportive and genuine towards anyone he encounters. Truly a great guy that I've been honored to call Brother!

Shout-out to my Little, Nicholas, who I have nothing but respect for! Always well-organized and put together, despite a truly insane workload. I would know because I've been in those shoes before... but you're definitely conquering it all way better than I did! And that is awesome!! Good luck in your newly-declared major! You are definitely bound for success!

Shout-out to President Blair! A man with unsurmountable dedication! It's been great not only playing horn alongside you for the past who knows how many years but also being apart of this fraternity with you and seeing your leadership skills put to great use! Good luck next year!

Becoming a part of the musical community here at the University of Washington has been one of the greatest decisions I have ever made. I have had experiences I never dreamed of, memories that will stay with me throughout my whole life, and found such incredible friends along the way. I thank Husky Marching Band for reshaping my entire collegiate experience, and I thank Kappa Kappa Psi and everyone in Gamma for being a great family to me – always there whenever I needed it! I wish everyone good fortune in the future! God Bless!”
