Update:Keith High Band Could Get Instruments From Morgan Academy
Keith Middle High School in Orrville has a helping hand from another area school to try and replace band instruments destroyed in a fire last month.
Keith Band Director Sanchezz Brown says he was contacted by school officials at Morgan Academy in Selma about the availability of band instruments.
Morgan officials says the school has discontinued it's band program-- and no longer needs the instruments.
"We had too few students to sign up so we no longer have a band program and we wanted to make these instruments available in our community," said MA Director of Instruction Karim Oaks.
"Well first off I would like to thank Morgan Academy for this opportunity," said Brown.
"They were gracious enough to think of us in our time of need so thank you to Morgan Academy, the instruments that were available were in great shape, they're in good condition and at this point Keith High School can use every instrument that we can afford or get."
A temporary band hall has been set up at Keith for the Mighty Marching Bears-- while the damage caused by the fire is being repaired.
