Congratulations to the Northern State University Marching Wolves for their selection to the 2013 Presidential Inaugural Parade in Washington, DC on January 21. This is the second appearance of the band, as they were also selected for the 2005 event. The band is under the direction of Dr. Boyd Perkins, Dr. Terry Beckler, Jessica Perkins and Tammy Griffith.
More than 2,800 applications were received for the parade. The NSU band is one of only a handful of college/university bands from across the nation accepted for this prestigious event. Congratulations and best wishes to the band as they represent South Dakota on January 21.
