Kv x- v ' ,- The Andrew Lewis High School Band, under the able leadership of Air. L. Christensen, kept its record at more than par this year. At three of the pep rallies preceding each game, band members were out in full force. Impressive formations, led by the majorettes, Jackie Sharpe and the Black Twins, were performed at each game. Jack Roof added to these formations by twirling out front. The Band presented two special assemblies for the students. This year Air. Christensen expects to take a group to the State Alusic Festival. He also plans to take the Band to Radford to present a concert at State Teachers College there. Highlighting the year’s events was the successful 1946 annual spring concert which featured the fruits of the winter’s labor.
