It is with great sadness that The Blue Devils announce the passing of Stephanie "Stacey" Lynde-Collins. A performing member of The Blue Devils Color Guard from 1971 to 1977, Stacey went on to complete an education in dance at the University of San Francisco’s Lone Mountain College. She then brought that knowledge and expertise back to The Blue Devils—teaching and choreographing the Color Guard program from 1981 to 1989.
