Savannah Marvin--MMHS Prep of the Week

This week’s Maple Mountain Prep of the Week is Savannah Martin, member of the All-State Drill Team. When asked how she felt about this accomplishment, Martin said, “It was rewarding, not many can say they were on a team that is as good as the Elleves.”

“Dancing is just a way of expressing myself,” says Martin.

Martin gives advice to someone who wants to be on the drill team, “Work hard; be willing to give 100 percent. It only takes one for the team to fail.  Work as if you’re at the bottom, even if you’re at the top.”
