Scott Sessamen

Whether running the track or practicing in the band room, senior Scott Sessamen has been involved with many extracurriculars at Tyrone, but the band has been Sessaman’s home since fifth grade. He started playing the baritone in his early years but soon switched to percussion.

Band Director David Hock appreciates Sessamen’s dedication to the band over the years.

“Scott has been dedicated to the band and always helping to move or load equipment as needed,” Hock said.

Scott graduating will be very hard with the band, just like all the seniors leaving. He has a great sense of humor and an even better personality. He plays a big role in the drumline and will be greatly missed”

— Xena Sieminski

Sessamen credits his sister with first getting him interested in music, and his church for first exposing him to the drums.

Sophomore Xena Sieminski knows it will be hard to replace Sessamen once he graduates.

“Scott graduating will be very hard with the band, just like all the seniors leaving. He has a great sense of humor and an even better personality. He plays a big role in the drumline and will be greatly missed,” Sieminski said.

Sessamen has made many memories throughout his years of high school, but hanging out with his friends every day is his favorite.

Hock also knows Sessamen has been an asset to the drumline for a while, so he’ll be hard to replace.

“Scott has been a strong musician and bass drummer over the years, helping to keep the drum section in time,” Hock said.

Sessamen plans to go to trade school after graduation.

Sieminski is excited to see what Sessamen will achieve in the future.

“I bet he has big plans for himself and will do very well. We will all miss him in the band. He is a part of this family just like everyone else,” Sieminski said.

Fellow senior Shyanne Webster knows Sessamen will be missed, but can’t wait to see what the future has in store for him.

“He’s a great dude, I just hope he finds his way and makes it out there,” Webster said.

Since Sessamen will be graduating, he wants to leave the marching band off with this piece of advice.

“There are times to practice and there is time to goof off, don’t mix the two up,” Sessamen said.
