It is with great sadness that the WGASC has learned of the passing of Shirlee Whitcomb yesterday. Shirlee was an icon in our activity and we all owe her so much gratitude for helping to create what we know as Winter Guard. She was one of a small group of people who in 1977 met in San Francisco to create Winter Guard International. She served as as Education Director for WGI for many years and WGASC was fortunate enough to have her train many of our local judges as well. Her contributions will never be forgotten.
