Yesterday: Boyden High School pep rally, 1957
Bill Monroe of Salisbury, who graduated from Boyden High School in 1958, bought this photograph at an auction several months ago. It was among several other old photographs, and although Monroe is not in the picture, most of the students shown are from his class. Monroe guesses it was a pep rally from 1957, but the photograph was not in any of his yearbooks. “I had never seen it before,” he says. Monroe adds that Boyden High had pep rallies for its sports teams many times during a school year — usually on Fridays.
