Ryan Clark 

Band Director Biography

Mr. Clark is entering his ninth year of band directing. As a Brownsville native Ryan began playing the trombone in the sixth grade and excelled in band activities through his middle school and high school education, with such accolades as being a member of the 2000 TMEA All-State band. He went on to earn a chair in the Texas A&M University Wind Ensemble through his collegiate years, traveling through Europe and performing at such events as TMEA in 2002 and CBDNA in 2004.

Mr. Clark began teaching middle school band in 2007 in Brownsville at Juliet Garcia Middle School. During this time, he held the associate director position under Ernest Cantu, and assumed the head director position in 2010. Through those years Garcia bands earned consistent superior UIL ratings and other successful band accolades, with many more competitive region band chairs earned amongst the district. 

As a father of two sons and husband to his wife Amie, family proximity brought him to Central Texas and he is excited to continue the successes he has enjoyed in his career to the scholars of Mendez Middle School. 

In Ryans rather small spare time, he enjoys watching his boys grow and keep him on his toes, and occasionally the outdoors.
