Larry Trimble

Color Guard Instructor

This is Larry’s fourth year as our Color Guard Instructor. Larry graduated from Pennsbury High School in 1995 where he was a member of the marching band for all four years. He played baritone for 3 years and was drum major his senior year. After graduation, Larry marched his first drum and bugle corps with the Reading Buccaneers horn line before switching sections to the color guard the following year. Since his time with the Buccaneers, he has marched several DCA drum corps. In 2007 and 2008 he was the Color Guard Caption Head for the Fusion Core Drum and Bugle Corps from New Jersey where he returned as a marching member and “aged out” in 2014. Along with marching band and drum corps, Larry has remained active in color guard during the winter seasons, marching The Guard and The Westshoremen Winter Guards as well as teaching at many local high schools in the area. Before coming to North in 2017, he designed and taught North Penn High School and Palisades High School outdoor and indoor color guard programs, winning local and state championships.

Hi! I am Paige Conner! I went to North Penn High School. I’ve been invoked in Color Guard since I was 12! Entering College I took a short break before joining Larry’s side as a guard tech. I graduated from Kutztown University in December 2019 with a Bachelor’s degree in Clinical Psychology!
