"Still the best high school in the area in this alumnus' opinion! Thank you, Lord, for sending me there!!
Tom O'Brien '67
I graduated in 1969, and just wanted to remember Sr. Rita Francis, CSJ, who taught music, singing and moderated/ran the excellent Glee Clubs. It was Sr. Rita Francis who wrote our great Alma Mater, which is still one of the best I’ve ever heard. She also wrote a fight song, which we used to sing, but seems not to be part of students’ cheering now. The words are below
Stand and shout
The might Knights are out
The black and gold is here to stay
All raise the cry
As we make it reach the sky
Montgomery’s on its way!
Get that ball and make it go, go, go!
We’ve never yet been broken by a foe
Give our best
And never, ever let it rest
Oh, let’s not give in and die!
Show our might!
And fight! Fight! Fight!
For our Montgomery High!
I didn’t know of any other high school with its own fight song and was filled with pride every time I sang it.
We were privileged and lucky our parents sacrificed to send us to BMHS!
