Mr. Aungst has been in the Dartmouth school system for the past 28 years. Under Tom’s direction, Dartmouth has participated in the WGI indoor percussion activity since 1998, capturing five World Class Percussion Championships (1998, 1999, 2008, 2009, 2014) and has consistently placed in the top three.

He later returned as a consultant in 2013. While with the corps, Tom was involved with capturing nine world championships and seven high percussion awards.
