Jennifer Dossey
Colorguard Director

Hi! My name is Jennifer Dossey, color guard director for FBBB. I graduated from McMurry University in December 1997 and have worked for Brady ISD for 22 years. This is my 5th year to fill this role. In that time, I have had the pleasure of seeing this group grow from four to fifteen. In addition, we are in our 2nd year of winter guard. What an enjoyment it has been to be a part of this amazing group.

I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Darrell Dossey, for 24 years. I am a mother of 5, Levi age 22, Taylor age 20, Kylee age 16, Colton age 14, and Macie age 1. All my older children have participated in the FBBB. Levi and Taylor both played the trumpet. Kylee plays the flute, participates in color guard and winter guard. Colton is a percussionist and participated in color guard. During my school career, I participated in band, playing flute all 4 years, and color guard for 3 years. I was captain of the guard my junior and senior year. I also participated in color guard for 1 year at McMurry.

I am excited to continue this journey with the FBBB and Color Guard and see what great things they can accomplish.
