Photo shows future alumna

Judith Larsen, from Grants and Resource Development, shared this photo of her mother, future GRJC alumna Geraldine Czerew Hupp, as the lead drum majorette at Davis Technical High School, which is now GRCC’s Main Building. Geraldine is in the center of the bottom photo:

“She would lead the band in practice down Winchester Alley — right next to my office.  This is from the school paper, ‘The Beacon,’ around 1942.”

A page of an old Davis Technical High School yearbook shows photos of the marching band and the three majorettes. The headline reads: "Rat-a-Tat-Tat, Boom, Boom, Tech Band!"
