I was born and raised in the Wellborn Community. I attended the elementary as well as the high school. I loved everything Wellborn had to offer. It was truly a place I was proud to call home. I was a part of the amazing “Walter Wellborn Marching HIGHLANDER band” under Jeff Leonard (what can I say about such a wonderful man) I was very disapointed to hear that the “HIGHLANDER” name was rumored to be removed. This disappoints me as well as several others that have told me.
To some of us “band geeks” to be a HIGHLANDER meant something. I just hope that this is only a rumor and the talk is just talk. I can’t speak for others but for myself I was no athelete and all I had was the band, but to be part of that was amazing and I believe it has impacted my life today.
