Cori Bostic remembers stepping onto the field for the first time as a drum major as a, “humbling” experience.
She admits that the job requires “a lot of hard work” and, there are “not a lot of thank you’s.” She’s a leader in the band and the band director’s right hand; her goal is to make his job “as easy as possible.”
Reid asks if she’s had any push back being a female drum major. But Bostic says the members of the band don’t see her as anything different, “they see a drum major.”
Bostic hopes to be remembered as, “the first female drum major who could march, and lead, and dance.”
