ONE HISTORIC PHOTO, MORE THAN A CENTURY IN THE MAKING
What does it take to arrange more than 800 students, faculty and staff members into formation for a photo shoot? The answer is a lot of planning, a little bit of patience—and 133 years.
The weather cooperated on Friday, May 5, as seniors returned from the traditional end-of-year walk from the old Cherry Street campus to Barstow’s current State Line home. The entire student body, faculty and staff lined the sidewalks to welcome them back, and it turned out to be the perfect opportunity to take an all school photo commemorating Barstow’s past, present and future.
Directed by Dr. David Cramer, students, faculty and staff assembled themselves into a 20-foot wide, 50-foot tall living mural spelling out “B133.” They assembled by grade levels inside figures first marked out by teachers Mark Luce and Scott Daniel, then outlined in chalk by junior Serena Fenaroli, Head of School for the Day (via the Barstow Auction). BTVN director Sean Holmes and Jesse Payne, junior, flew a drone overhead as everyone took their places on the track. The Class of 2017 provided the photo’s front line. Watch it all come together.
