  1. I'm interested to see how L.D. Bell is going to fare in 2021, with their success in the 2019 season as well as the confirmation of their new head band director, Suzanne Dell, as of 2021-2022 school year. She was an assistant director for Bell from 2014 up until now and has worked with the Blue Devils since 2016. She is one of the younger members of the Bell staff (I believe Chris Harmon and Ben Maughmer are older), and I think she can continue to bring success for the band program. There is speculation that Bell might attend Grand Nationals this year, but nothing has been confirmed.
  2. From what I heard, Associate Director Suzanne Dell is currently the Interim Head Band Director for the remainder of the school year. I do not know whether she will continue to be in that position or if a new director will be selected.
  3. Van Mathews is retiring as head band director of L.D. Bell effectively immediately, according to a school email and what current band students are telling me. This comes as a shock to me, as I am an alumni of the Bell band. I certainly believe that Mr. Mathews was pulling the program towards the right direction these past few years. Will certainly miss his presence in the band, no doubt.
