  1. Thank you for the enlightening and clarifying information; history, indeed, has its place, and yet we interpret it through our individual lenses. “Sammy,” with its elm tree reference, has been revived and serves as unifying song for a variety of occasions; symbols change but the institution remains.

  2. I may have some information helpful to pinning down the date that we decided on the school colors – in the first copy of The Willistonian, a writer states, “We would suggest that a committee be appointed at the next school meeting to decide on a school color, then submit their choice to be sanctioned and adopted by the whole school as the Williston color.”
    At least in 1881, the school lacked a color and wanted one. Hope this is useful!
