Nearly two weeks after news broke that Mountain Brook High School band donated their old uniforms to Birmingham’s Woodlawn High School, Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin took to social media to announce that now he wants to buy band uniforms for all seven Birmingham city high schools.

“I 100 percent support Birmingham City Schools, particularly our bands. I was a drummer from fourth grade until eighth grade – I walked in their shoes and I understand their commitment to excellence,” Woodfin said in a post accompanying the Monday afternoon video. “Let’s continue to invest in our students.

According to the video, Woodfin is making a recommendation to the Birmingham City Council that the city purchase “band uniforms on behalf of all seven high schools.” The schools include:

  1. Carver High School
  2. Huffman High School
  3. Jackson-Olin High School
  4. Parker High School
  5. Ramsay High School
  6. Wenonah High School
  7. Woodlawn High School
