CULLOWHEE – The new leader of Western Carolina University's Pride of the Mountains Marching Band is - drum roll, please - David Starnes, currently director of bands at Kennesaw Mountain High School in Kennesaw, Ga.

Starnes will be filling the well-worn shoes of Bob Buckner, retiring this summer after 20 years as director of athletic bands at WCU. The appointment is effective July 1.

"We are extremely excited about our bright future with David Starnes," said Matt Henley, assistant marching band director. "His successes as a band director are astonishing, and his fresh and energetic view on marching bands will take our program to even greater places. He is a consummate music educator, and our current bandsmen will certainly learn a great deal from him."
