In 2009, Mr. Kelly Brunson became part of the faculty at S.I.S. and the band only had 23 members. Through much hard work, dedication, and perseverance, the band quickly grew from 23 to 100 within a year. At that time, Mr. Brunson called Mr. Morris to come assist, in 2012. Mr. Brunson and Mr. Morris grew the program to over 150 within another two year's time. The Band Program is still going strong at S.I.S. under the new leadership of Mr. Troy Eads.
