    The WWHS Majorettes were led this year by Donna Wilkinson and Lillian Thayer. They strove to promote school spirit, and the results of their year-round practice was seen at assemblies, parades, and half time shows. During the homecoming game, the majorettes twirled fire batons.
    Mix-up day of Spirit Week had a new twist. The majorettes and cheerleaders exchanged roles during the assembly. The result of this was tremendous fun.
    An out-of-town trip with the band to Baltimore was a highlight of the year. All-in-all, the majorettes, the band, and Mr. Ruzek had a very successful year.

Wilson works with Norcom to perform joint pre-game display.
Dwain Hewitt sounds off at football half time show.
Drummers keep in the line during morning practice.
Wilson band lines up for half time pageantry at Cradock.
Band prepares to perform at half time.
During the past football season, the band presented a new innovation in its half time shows-DANCING. Under the capable leadership of Drum Major Lorenzo Hainsworth, they performed many spectacular gyrations.  Who at Wilson could forget the first performance of Issac Hayes' "Shaft" arranged especially for the band by two students at Norfolk State College? Don't think, however, that the band's work ended with the half time shows. There was ALWAYS something going on-whether it was parades or concerts. And if you don't believe that, then just ask a band member why he carried that odd-looking case around with him constantly.
