May 2019: Those We Lost in Vietnam

memorial collage 2019More than 60 years ago, a war began that created a cultural divide in the United States. Today, a simple, yet powerful, national memorial quietly celebrates the men who, whether they were drafted or volunteered for military service, sacrificed their lives in service to their county.  On Memorial Day 2019, we would like to recognize Foothillers who are among this group.  

The black granite Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall chronologically lists the more than 58,000 servicemen and women who lost their lives in Vietnam.  Hanging on the wall in the GHS Museum War Memorial display are the framed rubbings of the names of the 11 Foothillers who died in Vietnam. (We thank GHS alumni Luther Benning, Class of 1964, Craig Benning, Class of 1968, and Bill Woolman, Class of 1962, for making this possible. To request a rubbing of a name yourself, please visit https://donate.vvmf.org/page/signup/request-a-name-rubbing).

    2018-19 Orchestra

In 1921-1922, Grossmont’s second school year, its first orchestra was offered as a school subject for only strings and wind instruments; 18 students were enrolled under Director Chesley Mills. During these early years, the orchestra played at graduations, was an integral part of the Christmas Pageants, and, of course, presented school concerts in the school auditorium.    Orchestra was the only instrumental music program available for students until marching band was offered in 1930.
