Abby Malloy
Colo Guard Instructor, The Cadets

Abby Malloy has had many years of colorguard experience as both a performer and educator. 

Born in Miami, she attended G. Holmes Braddock High School and joined the winter guard her freshman year, thus beginning her color guard career. After only one season, Abby became a member of the local guard, Braddock Independent World, where she marched from 2005 to 2009 and again in 2011. She received two Distinguished Service Awards during her time at Braddock Independent and served as Captain for the 2008 and 2009 seasons. 

Abby's drum corps career began in 2005 when she marched in the Magic or Orlando Colorguard, later serving as captain in 2006. In 2007, she joined The Cadets Colorguard where she marched through her age-out summer in 2010. Abby was a featured soloist in 2009 and a captain in 2010, and she received Distinguished Service Awards in both 2009 and 2010. 

Professionally, Abby began teaching in the visual program at John A. Ferguson High School in 2006 and the movement program at Cypress Bay High School in 2011. She kept both positions until 2013 when she moved to Massachusetts to pursue a degree in Elementary Education at Salem State University. 

Abby continues to apply her passion for teaching, as she is currently working with multiple color guards throughout the New England area. She is looking forward to returning to her home at The Cadets for her fourth year on staff.
