My name is Dianna L Henninger Thomas Marusko, I am the Associate Director of the PFCJ. I have been a member of the PFCJ for 30+years as a tabulator. I began tabulating when the judges used the tick system of judging. I was a member of the WGI Championship tabulation staff for several years and I continue to tabulate for local WGI shows.

I began my Colorguard career with the South Greensburg Spinnerettes and then with the Greensburg-Salem HS Colorguard where I was Colorguard captain.

After graduation I was recruited by Joseph Buncie to teach the Derry Patriots Drum & Bugle Corp Colorguard. My first Winterguard teaching job was with the Turtle Creek Caballeros along with Gary Greenawalt and Bob Thomas, the Caballeros won 1st place in their division their first year in competition. I marched with the Erie Thunderbirds along with several other individuals from the Pittsburgh area. For 2 years we made the weekly trip to Erie to march with the Thunderbirds.

I continued to teach for the next 30 years working with various units in our area. Including the CD of A-All Girl Drum & Bugle Corp Butler, PA, General Butler Vagabonds, Steel City Ambassadors, Grand Illusion Colorguard, Penn Hill Vanguard, Forest Hills Rangerettes, McKeesport Drill Team, Top Hats Colorguard.

I was commissioned in 2009 as an Aaron Minister/Lay Minister for the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.
