  • Funds for tragic Andrews ISD accident

    Posted by Harvest Coats on 11/29/2021

    band funds

    On 11/19/21 there was a horrific crash involving Andrews ISD Band as their band buses headed to a playoff game. A driver was driving the wrong way on I-20 and hit them head on. Their Band Director, Mr. Darin Johns, as well as the driver of the bus and the driver from the other vehicle passed away from the accident. There are a few still in critical condition, including Mr Johns wife. 

    As much as Hays Hawk Band & Guard is a family, the band world in general is also a large family. When something like this happens, it effects us all.

    Your Hawk Band Boosters have decided to raise funds to send to the Andrews ISD Band for them to use for funeral expenses or whatever they need during this tragic time.

    Anything donated through our Hospitality Funds, using the link below, from now through December 5th will be sent directly to the Andrews ISD Band as a donation from the Hays CISD community friends and family.
