“I have a unique relationship with Pacific Crest. One of my greatest friends was the late Zach Headden, and I survived the car accident that took him from us in 2009. From that terribly painful experience, I feel a stronger connection to the veterans who knew Zach and to the newer members who never met him. By being around the drum corps, I feel the newer members can see a part of the corps history and forge their own connection to Zach.”
“I aged out with a large class of ageouts in 2008. Many alumni from that year have returned to give back to Pacific Crest. I volunteer to show the newer members that this experience creates long-lasting friendships that tie us together.”
“I also have a passion for cooking, so my best friend and then section leader, Chris Henderson, asked me to volunteer some time in the mobile kitchen. I started cooking for the corps in 2014, and in 2015 assumed the position of Food Service Manager. I feel this is the least I can do. Knowing the members are working hard every single day, my contribution is to provide the best meals that I possibly can.”
