and Gabriel's trumpet section has never sounded sweeter"
Tribute from the Induction Program -
by Bob Price Jr.

In 1956, the first year CHS opened it's doors, a contest was held. Our Alma Mater was in need of lyrics. Now we know that Carolyn Beverly-Shearouse '58, claimed this honor. As author, she helped many of us throughout the years. By committing this to memory, we fondly recall our youth and "Alma Mater" Thank you so much.

Our Chiefs enjoyed "Making Memories"
McDonalds, North Florida Ave and the Hillsborough River

Before now the following poem had not been shared with many. In the mid-70's it was written by Mark A. Buckley 1945-1979. Drum Major for CHS 1963. Enjoy! It has always been special to our family.

Our Chief Mr.P

Chamberlain's Alumni Band of the Fighting Chiefs.

THE CHS Alumni Band was featured during Homecoming pre-game festivities. Look for "Game Memories" in the photo section. The AlmaMater still raises the goosebumps, whether or not we could still match the 8-to-5 our dear "Mr. P" expected from us.

If you have information or contacts to share, please contact any one of us.

There have been several special responses to our project and I would like to share them with you. This certainly makes the effort and determination rewarding.

Forever Young to Us All

"Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people move our souls to dance.
They awaken us to new understanding with the passing
whisper of their wisdom.
Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts,

and we are never, ever the same."
Author Unknown but,
Thanks to Sofia Fernandez, for including this lovely remembrance!
