Here are some of the things said about Colorguard Director of the Year, Nicole Hamilton.

“Ms. Hamilton is truly an inspiration. She puts every ounce of energy she has into teaching, coaching and mentoring all of her students”

“She is an amazing person and teacher, in and outside of guard.”

“Mrs. Hamilton is one of the most driven, dedicated, passionate, and ardent directors of color guard, both in and outside of the activity.”

“Mrs. Hamilton sacrifices nearly all of her free time to coach our three different and unique winter guards, taking time not only to inspire each member (around fifty in total) at rehearsals, but also to guarantee the best end result of each show”

“She is always emphasizing both technical growth within the sport, but also individual growth as team members and unique individuals. Her individual faith in every member makes all the difference both in and out of color guard.”

Congratulations Nicole Hamilton!
