The KMI Drill Team was a very close-knit organization. The team practiced precise drill/arms maneuvers for many hours each school week and also performed during every formal dress parade.  The Drill Team participated in the Sarasota, Bradington, and Gasparilla day parades during the Winter semester while in Florida.
