Houston’s band director is leaving for a position closer to home.
Michael Roy resigned from Houston Schools last week for a job at Foley High School in Foley, Ala. His resignation was accepted last Tuesday by the school board during a special budget session. He was charged $1,000 for breaking contract.
Roy led the band program for seven years in Houston. His new job is under three hours away from his family in Mississippi.
“I have to say a special thank you to all of the parents who have entrusted me with their children,” Roy said. “It has been my honor to have them in my classroom and part of my life. I will miss you all.”
