Classmates Most Embarassing Moments (From Yearbook):
Maize and Blue
Oh let them shout and cheer for Memorial High
And talk of East High’s royal hue,
And let Lafollette preps their banners fly;
We know they’re staunch and brave and true.
But out of all the schools that fight for fame,
There’s only one that will remain,
And that is West High, West High, -- here’s to you!
We will not fail thee, Maize and Blue.
