Damarea
Hi, my name is Damarea Williams. I’m seventeen and I’m in the 12th grade. I’ve been on the drumline since last year in December. I’ve always known about the drumline because my older brother was on it. I just never thought it was a place for me to be. But soon after talking to one of my close friend Classey about it. I thought I’d give it a try. Right, when I walked in I seen how close everyone was and it seemed like an actual family. I then went to every practice and was a part of the drumline. It’s been an amazing experience. I’ve also learned a lot from our coach, Mr.V. He taught us that when it’s time to be professional we have to have our act together and quick. He also taught us that when we make a promise we have to be responsible enough to keep it. Drumline hasn’t just been a great experience for everyone they seen them perform. They’ve also been a great experience in my life.


Janasia
Hello, my name is Janasia Berreman and I am the sophomore on the drum line I am 15 and I play base and working on playing snare and piano when I get older I would like to be a all around performer and when I get off the line who ever  joins just want them to no that this line is not  just a line we are family.


Kayla
My Name is Kayla. I'm a senior on the drumline. I have been on the drumline since my freshman year and over the years I have learned to play all 3 drums bass,  snare,  and quads along with the Keyboards. I love being on the drumline because it keeps me occupied and it makes me happy to see people enjoy what we do as Grant Drumline. There is no other line that can do it how we do it.  Go Grant!

Anna
Hello, My name is Anna and I am a sophomore at GUHS. I joined Drumline in the beginning of my sophomore year. Although I have just recently joined Drumline, it has been such a great experience and I am loving it! Drumline so far has given me so much memories to one day look back on and reminisce and I am excited to make even more memories over the years. Currently I play the bass drum but over time with practice I hope to move up to snare.

Nick Pipkins
Nick Pipkins plays bass drum, piano, and sometimes the snare. He started playing the drums this year, and is thinking of sticking with it for his senior year. He feels he and his brother Tim are the heart of the drumline because of their level of school spirit.


Tim Pipkins
My name is Tim Pipkins. I’m a graduate student from Grant High School. I’m still on the drum line. I play the bass drum and the keyboard. My 1st song was Blow the Whistle, now I can play whatever. I remember when I first started I couldn’t play nothing. My little brother and I were the only drummers on the line that wanted to play bass drum. Today... we are raw at it and now everybody wants to be a bass player. On the day that we played for Kevin Johnson, the Mayor of Sacramento, we made up a dance. The dance is what actually shaped the Line. It also put pressure on the rest of the Line to step up their game. A lot of drummers quit and those that stayed on the line became Grant’s Drum-line OGs. Today our line fluctuates between 10 and 20 members. Our challenge today is to become more efficient at doing tricks and dancing while playing our drums. Stepping up our game is the focus. I’m A PACER FOR LIFE…!!!!!GO PACER!!!!!!!!! We are number 1.
