Kirbyville CISD announced Brad Long as the new Band Director.
Long has previously worked in Kirbyville as the assistant band director under Scott Shephard from 1992 to 1995.
Long was Valedictorian of his school class of Karnack High School in Northeast Texas. He went on to graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from Lamar University.
After leaving Kirbyville, he was the head band director at Hardin I.S.D. for seven years. He moved to Kountze ISD, where he stayed for the last 19 years and was the head Band Director for the last four years.
We are happy to welcome him back to Kirbyville and are excited to see the band program grow under his direction. The full interview with Long will be in next week's paper.
