Stephen F. Austin HS in Sugar Land, Texas (SW Houston) has an immediate opening for a Color Guard Director.

Fort Bend ISD has a standard pay of $26K.  Boosters will also supplement an additional $7,500-10,000 for benefits.

The color guard at SFA is healthy and growing.  There are two winter guards, Scholastic AA and JV Regional A.  The Stephen F.
