Glynn Wells

Glynn Wells is the Director of Bands. Wells is the a graduate of Lindale High School and Stephen F. Austin where he earned his Bachelor of Music Education in 1989 and his Master in Education with a Principal Certification in 2005. While in college, he has was an active member of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia and Kappa Kappa Psi Music Service Fraternities. In 1989, Wells was voted Outstanding Bandsman by his peers at SFA.

Before coming to Nacogdoches in 1990, Wells was employed by New Boston ISD as a Junior High Band Director. Upon being hired by Jim Hagood in August of 1990, Mr. Wells became the low brass specialist for the District as well as the beginning band and seventh grade band coordinator. He assisted on all campus levels. When Mr. Hagood retired in May 2000, the District opened the search for a new High School leader. As July quickly closed and August band was rapidly approaching, NISD asked Mr. Wells to step in and prepare the High School Marching band until a replacement could be found. He was named Interim Director and in the Fall of 2001 was named the Director of Bands.

Under his direction, the NHS “Golden Dragon Bands” have continued to be highly acclaimed and well received throughout the East Texas area and continue to be a source of pride for the Nacogdoches Community and NISD.
