Destry Balch, a graduate of University of North Texas in Denton, became the KHS band director in the summer of 2004. Previous to this, he was the Kingwood 9th grade director from 2001 through 2004. He has also worked in the communities of Van, Spring Hill and Lufkin, all of which are in Texas. He is married to Nita and together they have five children - Tony who is an Army Vet and is presently at home and working, Samuel who is a 2nd Lieutenant in the Army, Aubrey who is an Army Medic and has just returned from her second Afghanistan deployment, Matthew R and Matthew B who are both in college. Other than being a full time husband and father, he also likes to garden and fish, and he is a lifelong student of the Biblical Scripture. When band is in full swing, there is not much time for hobbies other than his faith, his family and band.
