Humans of LPHS: Chloe Cloutier


“I distinctly remember the first time I heard about Color Guard. I was in the car with my mom and best friend, Becca Eyrick, who was in Marching Band our eighth grade year. She told me that she thought I would be really good at it because I had dabbled in dance throughout my childhood. As an only child, I had never even consider doing an activity like this because I really didn’t think I was capable of maintaining such a hectic schedule to say the least. Despite my doubts, I went to the tryouts and made it in the group. I will always be thankful that Becca urged me to take this leap. I ultimately feel that Color Guard has helped me become who I am today. The activity, along with our instructors, has pushed me to my breaking point and has taught me to prevail and work through tough situations. It has shown me how to express myself, focus, and pay attention to details. Most importantly, Color Guard has shown me that hard work pays off. After each season, I can honestly say that the tears, jammed fingers, laughs, and lectures make the final product of the show that much more rewarding. Wherever I go to college, I hope to join the Color Guard. Although it will most likely be incomparable to the guard experience I’ve had at LaPorte High School, I want to continue my career in this activity because I truly love it and all of the unforgettable friendships that I have made so far.”
