Throwback Thursday: Lafayette High School Band

Today is the last day of school for the BVSD school year (congratulations, students!), prompting this dual reflection on our past and present by our Library Web/Technology Coordinator, Diana!

As I helped my Monarch student return an instrument this week, I reflected on the last marching band performance for Monarch and Centaurus high schools, held at Centaurus.

If you were lucky enough to see the Centaurus band in action this school year, you know they had a high-tech theme complete with dazzling uniforms lit up by strings of smart LED lights! Contrast that with this image of the Lafayette High School band uniform, ca. 1954!
