Lloyd Memorial High School, 1942
Named for John Uri Lloyd, more about whom is here.

The Lloyd Memorial dedication story is here.



Lloyd Memorial High School cornerstone laid, 1919. Dedication, 1928.

Lloyd's school colors used to be black and gold, but between 1940-45, the band director, Louise Ewers, thought the colors blue and gold looked better, so she ordered the band uniforms those colors, and the colors stuck.
