Davis selected as new Band Director

Please join me in welcoming the Heritage High School Band Director, Keith Davis!

Mr. Davis is in his 2nd year as Associate band director at Midlothian High School, and taught for 7 years before that in Cleburne ISD. He earned his Bachelor of Music Education degree from the University of Texas at Arlington and his Master of Music in Clarinet Performance from Texas Christian University.  His primary teachers during that time were Dr. Carol Jessup and Gary Whitman.  He participated in the Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble, and Jazz Combos at both UTA and TCU, and had the opportunity to tour with all of these groups, including visits to Italy, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Finland.  He was selected as a Semi-finalist in the International Clarinet Association's Young Artist Competition in 2001 and a Finalist in the Kingsville Solo Competition in 2000.  He attended the Saarburg International Music Festival in Saarburg, Germany in the summer of 2013, and plays not only clarinet and saxophone but upright jazz bass.  He frequently plays jazz gigs in the DFW metroplex.  Mr. Davis has taught both at the middle school and high school level, and enjoys performing in both classical and jazz genres.  
Mr. Davis is a founding member of the Lone Star Wind Orchestra and has recorded on the Mark and Naxos labels with the LSWO.  The LSWO was featured with Frank Tichelli at the 2010 Texas Bandmaster's Association Convention in San Antonio and invited to perform at the 2012 Midwest International Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago with guest conductor Leonard Slatkin.  He also performs with the LSWO Clarinet Choir, which performed at the International Clarinet Association's Clarinetfest in 2010 in Austin, TX and the 2014 University of Oklahoma Clarinet Symposium. 
Mr. Davis lives in Midlothian with his wife Minerva and their 15 month old daughter Amelia Marie.


MHHS Welcomes Whitney

Please join me in welcoming our new Heritage High School Softball Coach / Science Teacher, Waylon Whitney!

I graduated from Texas A&M- Commerce with a degree in Health and Kinesiology in 2001. I then went back to school to get certified in biology. As I was going back to school, I was a full time sub at Poteet and helped with softball. I was lucky to coach my sister at that time and was on a staff that went to the state playoffs in softball. I was then hired at Burleson as a JV coach and then got my first head coaching job at Arlington High School. I have taught several different science classes and thoroughly enjoy being in the classroom.

I am excited about starting a new chapter in my life. It is a great opportunity to start up a new school. I look forward to the challenge!

I am married to Michelle Whitney and have two children, Declan (6) and Aubrey (2). I enjoy going to the movies and learning songs on the guitar.
