Arizona 2009 Comes to an End

Just a couple of days ago students from Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, California, Utah and Idaho came together for the first time–complete strangers.  After four days they left with renewed energy, an exciting outlook on what the future holds, and in many cases, they made life-long friends!  DMA at Arizona State University 2009 has come and gone and it was FANTASTIC!

There are tons of photos already up and running on the DMA gallery located on Flickr (there is a link on the right column!) that tells the story of the week.  But before we leave this thread for the off-season there is one last announcement to make, the winner of the final march off:

Cheyenne Killian from Eagle High School in IDAHO!

Congratulations Cheyenne!

…until 2010 my friends.
