Mr. Chris Sumner
Hello Braves Nation! I am the Associate Director of Bands for Community ISD. This is my 6th year as a music educator and my 3rd year with Community ISD!
I am originally from Needville, TX (45 miles southwest of Houston) and attended Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, AR studying Trumpet under Dr. Craig V. Hamilton. After graduating Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Music Education in 2012, I taught for 2 more years in Arkansas; first in El Dorado, AR and then Bentonville, AR. During the 2014-2015 school year, I moved from Arkansas back to Texas and taught in the Marlin ISD in Marlin, TX before making my way to Community ISD.
My duties at Community ISD include facilitating all aspects of the band program at Edge Middle School with Mrs. Amy Whitaker, and working with Mr. Jon Weddle at Community High School.
