Poly High School Alumni to Celebrate Centennial of First Graduating Class
Fort Worth, Texas – The alumni of Fort Worth ISD’s Polytechnic High School are planning a once-in-a-lifetime Centennial Celebration of the school’s first graduating class. The event will take place on Friday and Saturday, October 5 and 6, 2012.
On Friday evening, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. the Poly Alumni Association will host a reception for all Poly exes at Hotel Trinity InnSuites, 2000 Beach Street.
Saturday will be all about memories with programs being presented by Major General Don Lynch and local historian Quentin McGown, beginning at 1:30 p.m. A stage band of alumni from the ‘50s and ‘60s era of former band director Frank Kasko will perform the alma mater and fight song. Alumni cheerleaders will dance The Poly Drag to the Poly Blues. Current cheerleaders will also perform while alumni “rhythm girls” will dance in kick-line formation. Special recognition of state championships will be given to winning teams and individuals.
Vintage and classic cars will adorn the front lawn of the school as students from the school’s current mariachi band, Mariachi Los Pericos, performs outside. Other students will conduct tours of the school.
The alumni have made a significant effort to contact and invite former teachers. A “Meet and Greet” hour from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. is planned for special groups (e.g. band, JROTC, athletes, and cheerleaders) to congregate and visit in designated areas of the school.
