Changing of the guard at Northwestern’s Homecoming

Thursday, October 10, 2019 by BERNADETTE SUKLEY in School

Some times it’s about the football. Sometimes it’s about the return of the king and queen to crown new royalty.

Sometimes it’s about catching up with alumni who have come home for a visit.

But for the Northwestern Lehigh marching band, Homecoming is about changing of the guard and making the transition from junior to senior.

For band seniors Julian Skilton, Jennifer Lindtner, Kelly Mease and Drum Major Jessica Eberle, it’s also about preparing to say goodbye and planning for life after high school.

It’s a time for moving on and also a time for introspection.
