If I haven’t had the chance to meet you yet, my name is David Willers, and I am the Director of Bands at Mesquite High School. I truly look forward to getting started and being part of this program. Having worked with the Wildcat Marching Band the past two seasons, I am already familiar with many of our students and the school as a whole.
