(written on back of photo)

Responses to date:

(1) Female far right identified as Diane Patterson may really be Helen Lou Lacy – not sure

(2) First female from left Mary Crumley and next is Kathy Gerace

(3)  These students are from the 1964 graduating class so if the photo was taken in 10th grade it would have been taken during the 1961-1962 school year

Instrumental Ensemble looks a little different!

Responses to date:

(1) Band Picture: circa 1958 - 1962

First row, left, closest to stage, holding flute is Schery Lodter (Collins), class of 1962, who now lives in Abingdon, VA.  Her Dad taught (French I think) at ETSC (as it was then).

The director is, I think, Mr. Lindley.  If Lindley, he was also the ETSC band director, and maybe the head of music dept.  Lindley died somewhere between 1958 and 1962.

First trombone is, I believe, Alfred Gervin;  2nd trombone Mac Sams

Two behind the director, square in front of the sousaphone, is  Judy Myron(Horton), class of 1960.

First sax is, I believe,  Marshall Lee Smith, class of 1960.

2nd clarinet in from outside is, I believe, Parker Davis, circa 1962, who’s father was a Dean at ETSC

(I played baritone horn in the band from 1955 or 1956 to 1960, and was Drum Major some years, but I’m not in this picture.)

(1) History of challenging our Bucs.....optimizing brain performance through physical activity.  Exercises involving learning a series of complex movements while coordinating one’s balance have been proven to generate a greater number of connections between neurons. These connections make it easier for students of all ages to learn ( Cradic Research )..... Of course,  physical activity, such as baton twirling,  can also be a lot of fun!!

(1) This is clearly a classic Home Economics class photo.  They are all women because boys weren't allowed in that class "way back when".  They appear to be in the middle of preparing something with eggs (using egg beaters).  Brings back lots of middle school memories for me!
