Jefferson High School & Silva Health Magnet School. History
Our Band started almost at the same time Thomas Jefferson High School got it's start in 1949. The first Band Director, Mr. Roy Wilson was also the composer of the school's Fight Song and of it's Alma Mater "O'Jefferson".Notable Band Directors that have taught at Jefferson High School include Mr. Berne Glover in the 1960s, Mr. Joe Dove 1970-1998 and Mr. Joe Jacobo 1998-2001. Presently Mr. David Perez has been the director from 2001 to the present.
Our Band Program has also had a myriad of outstanding alumni that have attended Jefferson High School and have been involved with our Silver Foxes Band. Many have become great community members here locally and throughout our nation. Professional musicians, educators, doctors, lawyers, engineers, military and all facets/talents have worn our Uniform!
Close to Forty years our Silver Foxes Band (& Fine Arts) were housed in the same building until 2006, when through approval of a EPISD Bond Election , we finally moved tour our beautiful Fine Arts Facility.
