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.

But if your going to win competitions then you need to have the right colors and not neon for christ sakes the color guard is in the front help them someone please

    instead of changing the band uniform why don't you try putting a little more fabric in the cheer leaders uniform. i get so tired of seeing underwear at the games that i really don't see what keeps these girls safe now days. and why do they have to always have to be showing their butts in the first place. as for adding color i think it's about time as these old uniforms are out of date.

    Im in the Sherman Highschool band colorgurard and if you have ever been to a marching competition you will see that all marching shows have themes. The colorguards job is to portray the theme of the show through our uniforms and flags, that is why we get new flags and new uniforms every year. I do think that it would be a good idea to have a maroon and white flag specifically for school events.
