High above the band and drumline towers Kate Karau, senior two-time drum major for the Southlake Carroll Dragon Band.

Raised in Southlake, Kate says she has Dragon Pride because of her love for her home.

"Throughout the years, I've learned that Southlake has a community-wide bond that very few places have," she says. "The unity we have as Dragons is something that will always make Southlake home to me regardless of where I am."

Kate's favorite Dragon item is her letter jacket, because it represents all of the time and effort she's put into the band program.

Kate says being a part of the Dragon band has taught her to be a leader and to surround herself with those who are honest and who will support her. She knows it's better to face a challenge with her fellow Dragons by her side than alone.

She says you'll most likely find her dancing on the sideline during drum cadences, showing her spirit and support for the Dragons in any way she can.

After graduation, Kate hopes to continue her education at a university in Texas, and to pursue a degree in advertising.
