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