BROOKWOOD HIGH BAND PROTESTS AFTER DIRECTOR’S CONTRACT NOT RENEWED

Brookwood High School band members are speaking out about the recent firing of their director.

After three years of leading the Crimson Star Band, Jordan Harrison was let go from the program midway through marching season. Students said they found out over Facebook, and were only told that the firing was a personnel matter.

Members of the band said they’re shocked, and still searching for answers.

“With Mr. Harrison, everything was always a challenge,” said band member Tyler Poe. “And that pushed all of us to get better, and that was honestly what we needed.”

Students said they’re protesting the change at 11 a.m. today at the Tuscaloosa County School Board office.
