The case was assembled by Association President Marty Burdette and Anita Kent.

The display is a “blast from the past” and puts into perspective how much times have changed. Styles have evolved, and so has the school. It creates a sense of nostalgia for staff and alumni and presents a creative way for students to connect to the school’s history.

“This started as a question on the Alumni Association Facebook page, ‘ who still has their prom dress?’  We’d like to try to have a showcase that is relevant to the present but links to the long history of the school. We hope everyone is enjoying it,” Burdette said.

Here is an article  written in  The Lance from June 1964.
