Bradley Central High School vandalized

Posted: Updated:

BRADLEY COUNTY, TN. (WRCB) -- It takes heart, motivation, musicality and team spirit to join a marching band. Bradley Central's Bear Pride Band is a prime example of just that, and a little more.

 "It's pretty much my family, I mean I love them to death," says rising senior Cullan Orr.

"We're moving on the upward trend," Director Kris Ware says.

The band has stepped into new uniforms, a new name, and a new band room all within the last year. They also just received new instruments.  "The whole school really is just behind us 100 percent," Ware says.

However, someone marching to the beat of a different drum decided to put their mark on the band and the school's campus.

"It's very frustrating to see someone deface our property," says Ware.   

A police report says the vandals spray painted "USA" under the ticket window of the Fine Arts Building. School officials quickly cleaned that up but the perpetrators rather un-artistic painting was left on the back of the band trailer.

"We have to deal with vandalism on a regular basis in small and large forms," Ware says.

Despite the disrespect these students will march on. "It won't push us down," says Orr. "Bradley Band, because it's who we are."

The vandals weren't thinking about the newly installed security cameras posted on nearly every corner of the building.

School officials have sent out information on social networks saying two men vandalized the property around 1:00 a.m.

If you have any information contact Bradley Central High School or the Bradley County Sheriff's Office.
