MORE BAND NEWS

I have some exciting news to share with you.  Tiffany Cox, the Trojan Sound Band Director, told me that one of our LWCHS grads, Dr. Chris Petterson and his wife, Mary Jo, donated $4000.00 to purchase new band shirts which will not only be cool to look at, but cool to wear in our warm South Florida weather.  Dr. Petterson and his wife had earlier donated $1000.00 for the band competition trip to Atlanta.

The uniform drive is still in progress, but with a hefty $40,000.00 bill, these new shirts will make our band members look snappy and full of rhythm until the $40,000.00 goal can be met!  Amazing what “new threads” will do for the self esteem of the band members!  AND…who knows maybe it will draw in some new band members.

A big THANK YOU  goes out to Dr. Chris Petterson and his wife, Mary Jo. 

Carol Webster, President

Lake Worth High School Band

The Lake Worth Community High School Trojan Sound Marching Band and Color Guard is in the midst of a Renaissance. Creativity, musicianship, leadership and community have become the focus of the ensemble after welcoming new band director, Ms. Tiffany Cox. The LWCHS Trojan Sound made its 2017 debut in August at a pre-season football game versus Oxbridge Academy. The talented students of the Trojan Sound presented their half time show, “Insidian”, to an enthusiastic crowd of Lake Worth fans. Trojan Sound drum major and Lake Worth senior, Rozeline Jerome said, “It was awesome! We had so much support from our principal and teachers. It felt so good to have everyone cheer for us.”

 BAND CAMP!

ATTENTION ALL ALUMNI: Tiffany Cox, the Trojan Sound Band Director, is asking for our help. If you can make a donation to help the band members during band camp, please let her know by email at tiffany.cox@palmbeachschools.org. Summer Band Camp is July 23-Aug 3 Monday-Friday 8AM-6PM.

To help us survive our upcoming marching band camp in the South Florida sun, you are now able to ADOPT THE TROJAN SOUND!
There are 4 different ways to do this! No matter how you decide to support the band, make sure you email Ms. Cox at tiffany.cox@palmbeachschools.org to make arrangements!
1) You can sponsor lunch for the band for one day! (We love working with local businesses to exchange advertising for meals!)
2) If you live locally and want to surprise the band with a treat during or after a long day in the hot summer sun, you can bring treats like ice cream, gatorades, or cold fruit (or even non-food treats like iced-towels) to the school!
3) If you live too far to stop by, you can work out a special treat to reward our hard working band students from afar! (Think: bounce house, Italian ice cart, or a monetary donation to the band)
4) Donate material supplies. The items we need the most are: sunscreen, beach towels, paper towels, deodorant, coolers, and a pop up shade tent

Email director, Ms. Cox at tiffany.cox@palmbeachschools.org if you would like to support the Trojan Sound!

The Lake Worth High School Alumni Foundation is setting up a Memorial Fund in Randy’s memory. If desired, please send any amount, tax deductible, to the address listed below and note Randy Hall Memorial Fund on your check. We certainly appreciate any donation.

 NEWSPAPER DISTRIBUTION IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Two issues of the Alumni Foundation newspaper were mailed to over 11,000 alumni in 2013.
The cost to your Alumni Foundation for these two issues was $8321 which represents over 80% of our administrative expenses.

In order to save most of this money, we plan to take the following steps beginning in 2015.

  1. Continue to create the newspaper twice a year.
  2. Deliver printed newspaper only to Alumni Foundation members (see membership application elsewhere on this website).
  3. Provide newspaper on our website for all other alumni.

Thank you for your understanding as we implement these changes.
