SHERMAN, Tex. -- After hearing concern from Sherman High alumni, school officials confirmed Thursday that the school’s' colors will stay true to maroon and white. The controversy began when high school band director Ryan Jenkins took a design for new band uniforms to the school board last week that included maroon, black, and white.
Board members decided the design did not have enough maroon, so they voted to change the design.
Jenkins says rumors about changing the school colors started flying when people heard the word “change.”
"There was no intention to take maroon out of the uniform for the band or any other school activity. We weren't taking it out, we were adding more in," Jenkins explains
Sherman Independent School District Superintendent Dr. Al Hambrick says they would never even consider changing the school colors as they represent roughly eight decades of tradition.
