MARFA, TX (KWES) - Marfa I.S.D.'s band will be back by homecoming. Superintendent Andrew Peters said he offered the position of band director to Vince Smith. The board has to approve the move on September 19 and Smith will start the next day.
Smith is a graduate of Texas A&M Corpus Christi. He has 16 years of experience and has taken the last two years off.
Peters said Smith read about the open position on social media and goes on to say Smith will be an asset to Marfa I.S.D.
Marfa I.S.D.'s band program has been previously cut.
Peters said the decision to cut band was not only for budgeting but also because there was a lack of interest in the band director position.
