It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of University High School Band family member Andrew Farris.

Drew has written the marching drill for the UHS Band for the past ten years, and was the architect of the UHS Color Guard's rise to prominence starting in 2003.

Drew was a tireless worker, highly creative, and always had a smile on his face. He will be greatly missed.

Drew...the UHS Band thanks you for your contributions to our successes over the last ten years. May you rest in peace.
