Adam Seymour will be attending Towson University. He will be double majoring in music education and music performance. The school provides many groups for musicians to be a part of, which excites him.

Seymour has been very involved in the music program.  With four years in the marching band, Seymour was named the drum line section leader for 2018-2019 season and 1st Chair in the All-County band. Seymour has participated in many music groups including symphonic band, percussion ensemble, symphony orchestra, and All-County marching band, and All-State Senior Band.

“Mr. Lloyd has been an incredible mentor and without his guidance I wouldn’t have considered going into the field of music,” he said.

Not only being involved in the high school program, he participated in the Hood College wind ensemble and the Shepherd University Honor Band.

He advises current students to “take advantage of all the opportunities you receive,” said Seymour.

Outside of school, Seymour is also second degree black belt and has been practicing at Hiya Karate since the third grade. Seymour competes locally, but he has also has participated in the Junior Olympics and AAU National competitions and has won two gold and a bronze metal.

For work, he spends his time where he grew up as a individual in the Hiya karate dojo. He is a assistant instructor and teaches ages at young as three to as old as sixty.

Seymour says he uses the time he is given efficiently to balance all the activities that go on to make sure he completes his daily tasks.

“I thank my family and friends for always supporting my decisions and keeping my best interests in mind,” he said.
