Members - c/o 1982

Lucas-Kornegay, Angela 1982
Snare...Union's first female Snare!

After graduating from Union in 1982, I attended O.U. and was a member of the Pride percussion section. After graduating from O.U. in 1986 I began working for the Department of Defense and just returned to the States after a seven and a half year stay in Germany. I am married and have a 7 month old son. Over the years I have contunued to perform for community band and Churches. I also teach youth instrumental music for our new Church in Crestview Florida. My years in the Union music program gave me a life-long love for music and music education. I thank Russ Mckinnon (percussion instructor in the 80's) for is mentorship. I'm very proud of all of you kids for keeping the music program burning bright. Keep up the great work.

Currently, I live in Tulsa and work for Bixby High School as Percussion Coordinator. I also teach part-time in the Claremore district doing marching percussion as well. My time in the Renegade Regiment changed me forever and I will always be grateful for that. I will never forget leaving OBA with the high percussion trophy. (one of the last ever given)I can be contacted at: spartanpercussion2002@yahoo.com or through www.geocities.com/spartanpercussion2002

York, Julie
Percussion



I was only active in the RR Percussion section for 1 year -1981 - the year of Whitewater and the year Russ McKinnon led us to playing as close to perfection as a group of kids could get! That was the most intense and amazing experience of my life! The next year - my Senior year - I worked on the yearbook and focused on Choir, Drama, Tulsa Co. 4-H and church activities. I also played Viola in the Tulsa Youth Symphony. I met my husband at Oklahoma State in 1984 and we have 2 boys and 1 girl (the oldest is at OSU now), and we have custody of a 6 year old who was my student last year. I'm currently a Kindergarten teacher in Gilmer, Texas. My son's HS band marches military style very well, but it's just not the same as the excitement corps style brings. I talk alot about HS right now, so it was fun to see a few familiar names and everyone's comments on here...
