Anyone got the inside scoop? I was hoping it was Morris Brown seeing as how they have become fully accredited again, but someone said he’s going to CAU.

If that’s true then it’s one of the best hires Clark has ever made. It makes no sense college bands in Atlanta are an afterthought. With the big HBCU footprint and the rich history of high school bands here, it’s about time CAU has decided to take band serious.

Either one would be great for him. That man is a good recruiter. He will probably take a large portion of Talledega students with him.

I was going to disagree with you because CAU is super expensive and the admission requirements , but I know for a fact CAU let high schoolers and people not even enrolled in school march in the band lol

Hopefully he can do it the right way though

If it's Clark, his best bet will be to start small with high academic kids and build over 2 or 3 years, as opposed to trying to bring in 100 transfers that could be higher risk.

Clark Atl is a hard school to get accepted in!! Why you think they never reached over 100 but were very good their last real season 2004! However they do not have a accreditation for their music program and zero scholarships either!! When Grambling played them in 2017 in Chicago they had a decent sound for their size and they also had tri cities high school band merge too that’s not a good move for bonds at all

Wow I had no idea they didn’t offer music scholarships..that’s absolutely ridiculous. The AUC needs a strong band program again! Ain’t had one since the Morris Brown debacle.

Clark used to offer music scholarships back in the 1980's and 1990's. I don't know what happened. I guess the change of administration over the years. My brother and sister marched in Clark band on music scholarships. I also had many friends who were music majors who graduated from Clark and some are band directors in Atlanta. In fact I have three friends who I went to highschool with that was on the first KKPsi line at Clark.

So what happened to the lady at Clark? Didn't she just get there?
She got there in 2017 her and her husband both got hired! She was there in 2017 when Clark Atl played grambling and Clark had a decent sound to be that size !but they also had tri city high school marching with them too! Cedric young left after 2004 that man build that program and they took the money! Atl as a whole stopped funding their music programs! However schools like Morehouse Clark Atl all were private universities and hard to get into also but Clark always was a small band with a big sound they did pretty good at Honda that one year
