Through her design, leadership, and teamwork the group has medaled an amazing 17 times and has always ranked in the top five in the World Class Division. Darcie toured for 11 years with the Marauders Drum and Bugle Corps as a member, instructor, choreographer, and designer. She has choreographed several musicals on both the West and East Coasts. Her educational background includes Health Education, Dance, and Educational Leadership; she also studied classical piano for 11 years in her home state of Washington. During her day job, Darcie is the Principal of two separate urban elementary schools in New Bedford, Massachusetts where she lives with her son Noah who marches in the Dartmouth High School Percussion Ensemble. Her eldest son, Alan, marched with the Spartans, Carolina Crown, for three years with the Blue Devils, and four years with RCC Indoor Percussion. She is very excited to work with Alan this year at The Cadets. She is thrilled to be part of the next new and groundbreaking chapter in the history book of The Cadets!
