Section Leaders

Stephany Herrera

Hi all! My name is Stephany Herrera and I am a current third-year/rising fourth-year in school and the TMB. I am so excited to be one of the 2024 Silk section leaders. 

I joined USC and the TMB to be part of fun, supportive, and energetic communities, and I am so glad I did! During these past three seasons with the Silks, I have had the opportunity to perform and build wonderful memories with my teammates, many of whom I am lucky to call friends! Some of my favorite memories as a TMB member have been pouring my heart out when your football team won against UCLA in the fall of 2022, traveling to Chicago to BEAT the Irish, and spontaneously going to Six Flags during a trip to the PAC-12 championship game. Fun fact: I have traveled to six new states since my start with the TMB (and for free hehe). I can’t wait for the new experiences and memories the fall semester will bring to the band, especially as we transition to the Big 10 (oh yay!). 

In school, I am majoring in Public Policy with an emphasis in law and minoring in Business. I love learning about formulating and implementing inclusive policies to assist underprivileged communities, particularly low-income groups and racial minorities. Outside of school, I enjoy cooking, exploring the outdoors, watching true-crime documentaries, and going for a swim 🙂  Some other fun facts about me are that I have spun a flag since middle school and have ridden an elephant.

Riley Carver

Hey friends! My name is Riley Carver and I’m a rising senior, a 4th year in the band, and one of the 2024 silk section leaders!

Being from Detroit, Michigan, I had never heard of USC until I began applying to colleges, but I knew instantly that it was the place I wanted to be. Before moving to USC I hadn’t gone west of Iowa, so moving to Los Angeles was a huge leap of faith, and I couldn’t be happier that I took the risk! This year will be my 8th season in marching band (my 4th with the TMB) and I can’t wait to take the field again. One of my favorite TMB memories will always be the first time I ran through the tunnel and performed my first pregame show. There’s nothing that can prepare you for the excitement of your first performance in the Coliseum!

As a student, I’m majoring in Creative Writing and minoring in Screenwriting. I’ve always loved telling stories, making people laugh, and connecting with others through the experience of storytelling. I’m also a proud first-generation student and former Questbridge scholar! When I’m not in class or on the field, I enjoy reading, writing, exploring LA, and hanging out with friends.
