Nicole Farmerie Muskego High School, Muskego, WI. Class of 2004. Instrument: Alto Saxophone, Director: James Beckman. The 2004 Muskego High School John Philip Sousa Award goes to someone that is well respected by her peers. She has spread her talents around as a band member in every group we offer. She is member of the Jazz Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Pep Band and Color Guard. Although she isn’t a quiet person, she has quietly led by example. Her attitude and personality are so positive that’s its infectious. I have observed that her peers gravitate towards her and I believe want to be like her. A very talented saxophonist, she has been featured many times as a soloist with a number of ensembles. I agree with the students recommendation, and am proud to award Nicole Farmerie with the John Philip Sousa Award.
