Color Guard – Introducing the new color guard director, Ms. Midori Eng.

Originally from Memphis Tennessee, Midori started her journey in the marching arts and color guard in high school. After performing in both BOA and WGI during her four years there, she went on to perform with DCI and WGI on a world-class stage with groups such as Phantom Regiment, Capella Independent, and Onyx. Her teaching career began in Knoxville Tennessee as director of Hardin Valley Academy’s color guard program in its first few years. After moving to Chicago to pursue a degree in Graphic Design, she began directing at Lincoln Way East High School, a program that was recognized and awarded in both BOA and WGI throughout her years of teaching (2012-2016). Her other educating experiences include teaching with the Phantom Regiment, Argyle High School, and Flower Mound High School. She recently moved to Arlington and is working as a graphic designer for Brad Cecil & Associates. She is excited to continue passing on her passion for the marching arts activity with the Lamar High School students.
