Meet The Leadership: 2017 SCV Color Guard

May 9, 2017 | Uncategorized, News

At the center of every strong drum corps is a strong team of member leadership. Serving as a liaison between performers and staff, this team of veteran members also puts in the extra effort to lead by example and set a standard for the entire corps.

“We have a very talented and experienced group of performers in the Guard this year, and our leadership reflects that very well,” said Daniel Riley, SCV Color Guard Caption Manager. “This is Megan’s fifth season with the Santa Clara Vanguard and her third year in a leadership role. I couldn’t think of anyone more ready to take charge as Head Color Guard Captain this summer!”

It is our pleasure to introduce the 2017 Santa Clara Vanguard Color Guard Leadership Team:

Megan Smith, 2017 SCV Head Color Guard Captain
