Shyanne Webster

Senior Shayanne Webster joined the Tyrone Band back in fifth grade, and since then has been an important and versatile member of the band by playing multiple percussion instruments and often helping others.

Band Director David Hock has appreciated Webster’s dedication to the band over the years.

“Shyanne has been a dedicated member of the band since she started. She is enthusiastic and supportive of her fellow students. She has been willing to learn a number of percussion instruments for marching band, indoor percussion, and concert band. She is often willing to help out when needed, even without being asked. She is a joy to have and will be missed when she graduates,” Hock said.

Freshman Kaleigh Brodzina knows that Webster will be missed once she graduates since the band will be losing one of their most vital members.

“Shy leaving the band will impact us greatly. Not only are we losing a great pit player but we are letting go of a hilarious, loving, and caring member of the band. She has brought so much energy and greatness to us,” Brodzina said.

Webster has made many accomplishments while being in school, but wildwood 2018 has to be the best.

“My biggest accomplishment would be, in 2018, we made it at least top three in Wildwood,” Webster said.

Fellow senior Trinity Mallon has made many memories with Shyanne over the years, but her pit running year for the marching band will always stick with her.

“We would Learn the ropes of everything to do during our first year when we were pit runners, and then we spread that knowledge to others that knowledge to others,” Mallon said.

Brodzina is proud of Webster for everything she has accomplished, and can’t wait to see what she does after she graduates.

“I know that Shy is going to do great things with her life and in college. I’m insanely proud of her,” Brodzina said.

After graduation, Webster plans to attend Lock Haven University to pursue a degree in conservation science.

Webster has been an inspiration for many students in the marching band, and she wants to leave them with a piece of advice that has always served her well, “Just know when to stop and ask for help,” Webster said.
