WHITEVILLE, NC (WWAY) -- A high school band director is playing a sad song. Chance Bryant was fired Friday from his job at Whiteville High School.
Administrators will not say why Bryant was let go, but Whiteville City Schools Superintendent Tom Hager said rumors around town about the dismissal are false.
"You ask whether or not it involves inappropriate behavior with a student? It does not," Hager said. "There is a process that is in place right now. It has not been completed, and until it's totally completed, there's not a lot that can be said about it."
Hager said he believes the high school administration took the right action to keep the students safe. They hope to have the situation cleared up soon.
