Miami Valley Adaptive Color Guard

The first special needs color guard in Ohio, founded in 2012!


Our Story

In 2012, Cathy Barnes-Miller created the Miamisburg Adaptive Color Guard for special needs students: the first of its kind in Ohio.  The guard was developed to help people with special needs work on motor skills, listening skills, and relationships with their peers. Cathy also hoped to raise the public's awareness of these students and their capabilities and needs. 

Shortly after being formed, membership was open to students throughout the region becoming the Miami Valley Adaptive Color Guard!

Today, the MVACG has 18+ members and performs at shows all over the Dayton and Cincinnati area.
