LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Officials with Lufkin ISD have revealed who will succeed longtime band director Scott Williams.

George Little, who despite his name, stands nearly 7 feet tall, will take over that role. 

District officials along with parents and supporters held a meet and greet Thursday evening welcoming Little to Lufkin. 

Little comes to Deep East Texas from New Diana ISD where he also served as band director.

"I think every young band director hopes to aspire to get to the big schools someday and I'm thrilled to be a part of Lufkin because it's one of the destinations that people work towards in their careers," said George Little, new LISD band director.  

Little is expected to officially take over that position some time next month.
