Brandon Howard Appointed Director of Huntingdon Bands
Montgomery, Ala.—Brandon Howard, who joined the Huntingdon College Band Program as associate director of bands in January 2021, has been appointed director of bands for the program. The appointment was effective June 1, following the retirement of former director of bands Dr. Rusty Logan.
“Already, Brandon Howard has renewed creativity and sparked new levels of performance in our bands,” said Huntingdon President J. Cameron West. “We look forward to the shows he and his student-musicians are developing for this fall, when the band will once again be on the field for football games following an off-year because of COVID-19.”
From 2010 to 2021 Howard directed the band program at Jefferson Davis High School in Montgomery, leading the JD Marching Band to national prominence and an appearance on America’s Got Talent in July 2020. He has earned recognition for his teaching as well as for his band direction. Prior to his work at JDHS he taught for Bellingrath Middle School and for Autaugaville School.
“I’m excited about this opportunity,” said Howard. “We are looking to do great things—continuing to move forward. It’s great to work with Huntingdon students—they’re bright and enthusiastic. I’ve been welcomed on campus and I feel like I’m at home. We’re looking forward to this new season.”
Huntingdon College, founded in 1854, continues a legacy of faith, wisdom, and service through a liberal arts academic tradition grounded in the Judeo-Christian heritage of the United Methodist Church.
