Rushville Republican

RUSHVILLE — Purdue University senior Ashley Wilson has been marching with the Purdue All American Marching Band this past football season. This is her second year and she plays the trumpet. She is the daughter of Charlie and Monica Wilson and is a graduate of RCHS.

Ashley will be marching with the band at the Heart of Dallas Bowl game on New Year’s Day. She is currently playing for the Gold and Black sounds (GABS) at the women’s basketball games.

She will also be marching with the band in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Dublin, Ireland in March 2013. She will be marching for her second year in the Indianapolis 500 Parade and at the Indianapolis 500 race in May 2013. She has really enjoyed being a part of the band family.
