Meet Jo, from the documentary "Scouts Honor: Inside a Marching Brotherhood" about the Madison Scouts drum and bugle corps.
Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Jo returns for his second year in the color guard of the Madison Scouts. As the oldest member of the 2012 color guard, Jo exudes charisma and a larger-than-life personality that is emblematic of the character needed to succeed in the crazy world of drum and bugle corps. Jo's journey is unique in that he was unable to complete the 2011 marching season due to a mid-tour diagnoses of HIV. "Scouts Honor" chronicles Jo's struggle to deal with this shocking news and the effect that it has had on his life and those who support him during this troubling time, including his corps brothers in the Madison Scouts. After being cleared by his doctor, Jo makes his return for his final, "age-out" year in 2012.
Through numerous interviews with family and friends, "Scouts Honor" will share Jo's story with the world and, in the process, demonstrate how important the Madison Scouts and Jo have been for each other over the last two years. Through Jo's story, viewers will begin to understand the true meaning of the Madison Scouts' motto: May You Never Walk Alone.
Jo is one of three members featured in "Scouts Honor: Inside a Marching Brotherhood" which is scheduled to be completed in early 2014.
