"During the halftime ceremonies of the Newport News - Ferguson football game on November 12 (1965),
Miss Diana Price was crowned the 1965 - 1966 Band Sweetheart.  She was escorted by Alan Goldberg ('67),
member of the color guard.

"The candidates, who are nominated by the members of the Senior Band, had to be in their senior year and
active in the band.  The voting was completed a few days prior to the big night. However, the election results
were not disclosed until that very evening."

Senior Band
1966 Anchor, p. 93
"One of the most hard working, school spirited organizations in our school is the Newport News High School
Typhoon Marching Band, five time winner of the Apple Blossom Festival. It adds inspiration and sparkle
to pep assemblies, and to the special performances which it gives during the year. This year, as in years
before, the band marched in the Oyster Bowl Parade. Constantly practicing to perfect their presentations and
marching precision, the band members, under the direction of Mr. James P. Wilson, are required to be at school
early each morning and frequently return at night."
