For some that don’t know, on April 1, Charles L. Allen Jr., former band director at Scotland High School, transitioned from this Earth. He was a vital part of getting the marching band aka “Pride of Scotland County” into prestigious events such as the 1991 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, 1994 Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade and many Superior Ratings at band competitions.

He also directed the Symphonic Band to many prestigious events during his tenure. I just thought that it would be nice to recognize the man that brought some much pride and respect to the band program and to let the community know that he has passed away from us.
