Devon Curtis

Collegiate Province Representative

After having grown up in San Antonio, TX, I moved to Lubbock to pursue an academic career in music education as a dual principal in French horn and Guitar. I've spent my collegiate career devoted to bettering myself as a man, a musician, and as a professional. Sinfonia has been instrumental towards these developments, and, after having crossed in Fall of 2014, I have found a deep passion within its confines that has only been equaled by my love for Shannon Valkovich, my girlfriend of 6 years. I've given much of my life to this organization, and have had the great fortune to have had those efforts returned in many ways; most recently being my installment as CPR of 23. I owe much of who I am to the lessons this Brotherhood has helped me learn, and wouldn't trade any of it for anything. Fraternally yours, Devon C.
