ARDMORE, OK -- The Ardmore Board of Education officially announced at their meeting Wednesday night, the completion of the Ardmore band staff.

The previous director and assistant director for the high school band program resigned at the end of last school year, but Wednesday night Ardmore locals Kern Farve and Mark Smithey were approved for the two positions respectively.
 
They join fellow assistant Alison Scott who's been with the band program for seven years.
 
Despite a late start, all three are excited for the coming season.

"The students are, well they're opening up to me," said Farve. "They're trusting my direction, taking my lead and they've been doing an excellent job the past few days. They're working with me, understanding where I'm coming from so I'm very pleased with that."

The Ardmore band staff says they have already completed preparations for the school year during band camp.
 
Ardmore public schools will begin the new school year on August 20.
