The ensemble will compete against other elite groups that also perform under the governing body of Drum Corps International. The competition will take Music City on an eight-state tour before taking the field for the world finals in August at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Rosales-White, daughter of Steven and Shelley White, said this is an opportunity of a lifetime, and it will provide her the chance to utilize a scholarship program to attend McKendree University in Illinois.
Rosales-White said she has worked hard the past eight seasons for the marching Hornets and winter guard. She will be inducted into the National Honor Society on Thursday and has maintained high honors with a 3.79 grade point average. She also is a member of the National Technical Honor Society through Central Nine Career Center.
And while this is quite an accomplishment for Rosales-White, it comes with expenses. People wishing to help fund her endeavor can go to www.musiccitydrumcorps.org and click on sponsor a member.
The corps is under the direction of David Boggs, who has taught at Indiana and Purdue universities and is the marching band director at McKendree University.
