Tour of Roosevelt High School

Last Tuesday, David toured his alma mater, Roosevelt High School, as part of his 50th class reunion week.  He took some photos.

The school dome:

There were about thirty alumni, who joined the tour.  David is seated in the second row towards the right:

The football stadium.  The swimming pool is located nearby:

This is the band room, where David rehearsed as a clarinet player from 10th grade to 12th grade.  In the background, you can see the various trophies and awards that the school has won at marching band competitions.  There also is an orchestra room, but no chorus room, as chorus is not offered at Roosevelt High School:

The weight room:

The gymnasium:

The school Hall of Fame, featuring distinguished alumni:

Pop singer, Bruno Mars, is a famous alumnus:

These sculptures were carved out of lava rock in front of the school and signify unity:

After the campus tour, David and the other alumni ate lunch (beef stew) in the cafeteria.  He noted that disposable plates and plastic utensils are now being used.  Unfortunately, he forgot to take photos of the food and the cafeteria.

Altogether, it was a nice trip down memory lane, full of nostalgia and pride.  When David remembers his high school years, he has only positive memories.

    My 50th high school reunion was last summer. i did not bother to go which perhaps says something about my memories of that time.

    Would be fun seeing classmates after so many years. Have never been to a high school reunion as lived across country from that location. Do have contact with a few classmates in our small graduating class of 40 but that didn’t occur until the past decade or so.
