Photo of the Day: My High School's Uniforms 54 Years Ago...

The color of the uniforms at my old high school...circa 1964.

One of my friends recently sent me this old picture that she found of our former high school back in 1964. This photo is jaw-dropping for two reasons: 1.) The colors of the uniforms are totally different from what they are today (the theme colors for our high school are now royal blue and gold). Also, it's amusing that there were uniforms back during the 1960s when my oldest brother (and I think my sister) got to wear casual clothing to class until uniforms were re-instated in the early 90s (all of my siblings—I have two brothers and one sister—and I attended this school). And 2.) The demographics of the students in this image are waaaaaay different from what they are in 2018 (and 1994 thru '98, the years that I attended this high school). How different, you ask? Well, let's just say that the neighborhoods surrounding my alma mater apparently didn't have any Asians or Latinos (mostly Latinos) living in 'em more than 50 years ago. That's how different.

And in case you didn't notice after I mentioned what years I was in high school in the previous paragraph: My 20-year high school reunion is this October! We'll see if I go. Have a happy Presidents' Day weekend.

Go Lancers!
