Meet Mickie Elliot.

Mickie is 18 years old (but was quick to day she will be turning 19 on tour) and was born and raised in Marietta which is just outside Atlanta, Georgia! 

This is Mickie’s second year with the corps.

Mickie got her first taste of colorguard at her middle school where she did one year of Winter Guard. She then went to high school at Walton where she did four years with the Marching Raider Band and four years with the Walton Winter Guard. After graduation she marched one year in the Georgia State University Marching Band.

When asked her favorite memory of the corps, she said it was a three way tie between the monsoon show in Fairfield, OH, our Fourth of July Parade in Bristol, RI, and walking on to Lucas Oil Stadium’s field for Prelims in 2014.

Mickie said the first time she ever saw Spirit perform in 2011 she fell in love and knew where she had to be.
