Corona band member joins elite unit


Corona del Sol student Sophia Crisler has been selected as a 2018 U.S. Army All-American, joining an
elite group of marching band members who will perform during halftime at the 2018 U.S. Army All-American
Bowl presented by American Family Insurance.
The honor was announced during a celebratory event at the school.
“Being a successful band member not only requires great skill, but a commitment to teamwork,” said
Elizabeth F. Wilson, deputy assistant secretary of the Army for marketing.
“To be an Army All-American requires students to excel musically and academically, but most
importantly, as young people of character,” Wilson said.
Telisa Yancy, chief marketing officer for American Family Insurance, added:
“As the official champion of Dreams, American Family is honored to salute these student athletes as they
work hard to pursue their dreams with the encouragement of family, coaches, friends, and the their communities.”
The news announcing Crisler’s selection came from Rick Utter, longtime South Tempe representative of American Family Insurance.
