With sincere gratitude and well wishes, the White Sabers Drum and Bugle Corps is announcing that Stephanie Pellittieri (Waugh) and Nicholas Gerling have decided that they will not be returning for the 2019 season.
Over the last three seasons Nick has been an integral part of designing, teaching and inspiring the members of the White Sabers Color Guard. He has also been an incredible force on the design team and a joy to work with at all levels. His leadership on the design and educational team will be missed amongst both the staff as well as the members.
Stephanie took on the White Sabers Color Guard program in 2012 and through her leadership, creativity and dedication she has turned the White Sabers Color Guard program into something special. Among her many accomplishments over the last seven seasons she has won High Color Guard in Class A in 2013 and 2014. She has also quadrupled the membership of the color guard from 8 members in 2012 to 32 members in 2018. In addition, under her direction, her caption was the first to record a Box 5 score in White Sabers history in 2014. Not only has she had an incredible impact on the White Sabers Drum and Bugle Corps, she has had an immeasurable impact on the young men and women she has taught and inspired over the last seven years.
We wish both Stephanie and Nick nothing but success in their future endeavors!
