I'm Austin Craig, I recently turned nineteen on August 12th, and I've lived in Marion all my life. Even though I have been stuck living here, I've traveled to California once, Florida five times, and Washington D.C. once. Car and bus trips: seven. Plane trips: zero. Two trips to Florida were with my high school marching band in which I participated for four years. Both times the band traveled, we won a grand champion award in a competition, which allowed us to preform pregame at the Outback bowl. At the end of my Senior year, I was awarded the John Phillip Sousa award; I'm most proud of that because it is the highest award my former high school has to offer in music. Graduation was three months ago, but I'm still involved in the music department as both a performer and instructor. After achieving a degree in nursing, I wish to pursue a degree in music.
