Interim Southern U. band director named
BATON ROUGE - Southern's Board of Supervisors named Nathan Haymer as their interim director for the Southern University band Friday.
Haymer replaces Lawrence Jackson, who announced his resignation as director of the "Human Jukebox" marching band on May 30. Jackson's last day as band director is July 1.
Haymer earned his Bachelor's at Southern before going on to earn a Master's degree from McNeese State. He became Southern's assistant band director in 2006.
On Friday, Haymer told News 2 he plans to make the Human Jukebox bigger and more exciting.
News 2's Troy Gaulden will have more reaction from Haymer tonight.
