It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of the founding Director of the Reed HS Raider Band. Felton Hickman opened Reed in 1974 and taught until 1992. Before that he was already a fixture in the community teaching at the Middle School and High School level. Under his tutelage the Reed HS Band became the standard in Nevada for high level of performance and ability. Feltons students were known for all being the leaders in the local and state level honor groups. Felton set the standard for all the bands in the Nevada area and beyond.
The family has asked to create a fund that will go directly to students in financial need to be able to cover their costs to be in the performing arts.
