I saddens me to inform the HBCU and HBCU Band Community that Mr. Knighten passed away today. As of right now all we know is that he collapsed. Please keep his family and the Jaguar Nation in your prayers.
Didn't know. RIP, Frat.
Yep. I still remember having to go over to Southern U High School when he was the band director to get his signature on my pledge board we carried. Great musician and very technical with his arrangements. Mr. Jackson the current band director at SU is his line brother. That ZN charter line was no joke. Most of them went into teaching music/band. Mr. Knighten has touched a lot of lives. Just a sad day. My prayers goes out to his family. His contributions to the Jukebox and music program at Southern will not go forgotten.
Just got word that Carnell Knighten passed away today....I am sure others will follow with more details. Another sad day....
