The band played and the cheerleaders danced their game day routines as the alumni entered the building. The alumni were overjoyed. They couldn’t believe that high school students would do this for them. As they walked thru the tunnel of cheerleaders they cried, cheered and smiled as the awesome band and cheerleaders brought them back to a great place.
