One Lake Fenton High School graduate will get to watch in person Michigan State take on Stanford at the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1 and she didn’t even have to purchase a ticket.

 As a freshman with the Michigan State Marching Band, Meredith Herman is ecstatic to be traveling to Pasadena, Calif. “I can’t believe it, it feels like a dream,” said Herman. “It’s a once-in-lifetime opportunity.”

 The band flies out on Sunday, Dec. 29 and will have a couple days to practice in preparation for their performances in the parade and game. They will also be perform when they visit Disneyland for a day.

 “We’ll just brush up. We’ll be good to go,” Herman said. Even though her family cannot make the trip to see her perform in person, she knows they will be watching their TVs closely, hoping to catch a glimpse of her.
