David Hutar

Sousaphone Section Leader

From Cold Spring, MN
Industrial Engineering and Management Major
4th Year in GSMB

Hello, my name is David Hutar and I am going into my third year in the Gold Star Marching Band, second year as a sousaphone section leader, and first year as the band treasurer. I am also majoring in Industrial Engineering and Management. Growing up as a band directors son led me to be surrounded by music my entire life, and so joining the Gold Star Marching Band was a must once I found out about it. Since joining this band, I have made friends and memories I could not have made anywhere else and I cannot wait to make many more. Other than the marching band, I am involved with university band, pep band, and hall government. I also enjoy watching tv shows, movies, football, and playing any game with friends. If you have any questions about the GSMB, NDSU bands, engineering, or just NDSU in general, feel free to reach out to me at any time.

Caitlyn Burghard

Public Relations
Color Guard Section Leader

From Cheyenne, WY
Emergency Management Major
2nd Year in GSMB

Hi! My name is Caitlyn Burghard. This is my second year in the GSMB, and I get to be your Public Relations Officer this year! Yes, I am from Wyoming, and yes, I know its not real. I started in band in 4th grade where I started playing the oboe. It changed to trumpet in 5th grade and played it through middle school. I just didn't have time for band anymore, so I unfortunately did not do band for most of high school. By my senior year, my best friend convinced me to join Color Guard. That had to be the best decision of my life, because I have fallen in love with Color Guard ever since. When I am not in band, you can find me playing video games, crocheting, sewing, or baking/cooking. I love meeting new people and answering any questions, so feel free to reach out!
