We Need Your Help in Identifying These Cadets

Band Photos Need Names to Faces

Article by 25366 Anna-Michelle Shewfelt 

It came to our attention over Reunion Weekend that a number of the band photos hanging in the basement of Yeo Hall do not have names attached to them. Some of the oldest photos are too faded to work with, but we’ve put up the ones we can work with. We have been asked to help put names to faces, so if you can identify anyone in the photos below, please let us know in the comments!
