Where are they now?

Updated September 27, 2013


Here you will find photos and a little narrative about past AAMB members, and where they are now, what they're doing, working, living, and so forth. I could use your help: if you were in the band, please send me an email with these facts and, if possible, a photo of you, either from when you were in the band, and/or a current one as well. Let all here know how you are, and where you are currently.





Here is a link to her book:Val's Book Beating Cancer


Valerie Ludwick Willman was the 13th Purdue University Golden Girl and now lives in Kauai, Hawaii. "Val" is currently licensed in the State of Hawaii as a clinical Psychologist. She has a Ph.D. in Psychology from Purdue University and a re specialization in Clinical Psychology from Illinois Institute of Technology.

She is a 27 time National Champion and a 5 time "Grand National/World Champion" in the sport of Baton Twirling.

At the left are two videos, the fist an interview I did with Val in 2012, the other a performance during a homecoming football game.



Caitlin Stansell was a trumpet player in the AAMB from 2007-2011 and was
the trumpet assistant section leader for the 2010-2011 season. After
graduating from Purdue with a Bachelor of Arts in English, she attended the
University of Michigan and earned her Master of Arts in Educational Studies
during an intensive one-year program. This program included teaching two
classes every day during the spring semester at Wayne Memorial High School
in Wayne, MI. Caitlin is also certified to teach secondary English and
Psychology. She has now moved back to her hometown of Okemos, MI and from
December-May will be a longterm substitute teacher for her favorite high
teacher while she is on maternity leave. In the meantime, she is subbing
day-to-day at various school districts in the Lansing area and is loving
the time that she gets to spend in the classroom.

I am currently living in my hometown of Champaign, IL teaching high school social studies at an alternative school for students who have been expelled. I have been teaching for the past 7 years. I also obtained a master’s degree from the University of Illinois in 2010. I am single with no children. I played the tuba while in the band. I was a part of the band from 2001-2005 and was a student leader my senior year. I make it back to campus often for athletic events and try to make it to some road football games as well. Cheering for the Boilermakers didn’t stop after my band days were over!
