Director
Gena Inglis Nix - Band Director

I was born and raised in Rome, Georgia. I graduated from Rome High School. I attended Jacksonville State University and graduated with a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Music Education in 2000. My first two years of teaching were in Blountsville, Alabama and Dalton, Georgia. I have 20 years teaching experience.

This is my 18th year as band director at Gaston. We start beginning band in the 6th grade. Our high school program is 7th - 12th grade combined. We have accomplished great things with our band program since I began teaching here, including our first superior ratings at marching festivals and at State Music Performance Assessment. I look forward to the success in the years to come with our program.

I am married to my husband, Jonathan. We have two beautiful daughters, Taylor and Emma.
