After four years of playing sousaphone in the Ohio State University Marching Band, Jocelyn Smallwood will dot the “i” in Script Ohio. Jocelyn participated in the John Glenn Learning Community as a freshman, and has been an active member of the Civic Leadership Council ever since.
As the top ranking sousaphone in her class, Smallwood had first pick of when she would dot the “i,” and she chose the Michigan game. To add to this achievement, her dotting the “i” will be one for the record books, as it marks a number of historic firsts for the band. Jocelyn is the first female to dot the 'i' at a Michigan game and is the first African American female to dot an “i”.
