Jackson State University Band Director Dowell Taylor is being honored as a 2014 Mississippi Humanities Teacher Award winner.
The assistant professor of music and director of The Sonic Boom of the South marching band gave a speech recently in recognition of the Mississippi Humanities Council award.
“It’s up to us to keep artistic expression alive,” he said, to a standing ovation at the F.D. Hall Music Center Recital Hall.
Taylor has served as band director since 2012. He also served from 1984-1992.
Dr. Jean Chamberlain, chair of the Department of English and Modern Foreign Languages, represented the Humanities Council at the presentation. Taylor will be recognized with 30 other honorees at a Humanities Council award ceremony later, she said.
