Panther Color Guard and Twirler

Panther Color Guard and Feature Twirlers are a vital piece of EIU tradition. The Guard Members and Feature Twirler are honored to represent EIU at home football games, parades and other events along with the Panther Marching Band.
 Color Guard 2014
Panther Guard is lead by Assistant Director of Bands, Dr. J. Corey Francis and the Coaches for the team are Alison Christian and Josh Milliman. Our 2015 Student leadership will be selected soon.

In 2013, we revived the tradition of Feature Twirler to our ranks, with the addition of Miss Nicola Colucy. We look to continue this tradition through auditions for the 2015 Feature Twirler(s) on March 15, 2015. 

Twirler and Guard members attend band camp, have multiple weekly practices, perform at all Panther Football home games as well as parades and exhibitions throughout the year. Our Guard members are talented with flags, rifles and dance. Membership is by auditions held in the Spring for all EIU and Lakeland Community College students.
