Lufkin High School Band Director Reassigned To Middle School

Some changes are coming next year for the Lufkin High School and Middle School band programs.

Lufkin ISD superintendent David Sharp has confirmed that high school band director Paul Najera will be reassigned to Lufkin Middle School next year.

"We're trying to look at the overall program. That's my job as superintendent to make sure people we have... have people assigned where the best needs of the district are and can be met in the best way. And we're making this change because I feel it's in the best interest of our kids." says Sharp.

According to Sharp, the move in no way reflects on the performance of either band, and it is not a demotion for Mr. Najera.
