John Mashburn, Spirit's assistant tour director last summer (and director of bands at Forsyth Central High School in Cumming, Ga,) submitted this one. "Here is a picture of my daughter, Tonya Mashburn. Yes, she is the "crying" girl from the 2002 DVD (during Spirit's performance). This was her third year as a member of Spirit, and she got her start in drum corps with Teal Sound out of Jacksonville, Fla. Kind of funny that she has performed with two corps from cities with the same name. It is really not surprising that she pursued drum corps, considering that she has been exposed to it since she was 2 years old. She has just started her freshman year as a music major at the University of North Texas." Thanks John!
