On May 10th the band performed two final songs with Lampe. All band members received participation certificates and others received additional medals, certificates, and ribbons for participating in Jazz Band, Solo and Ensemble, and State Large Group, and all seniors received a senior plaque.
The students in band came together and did a flash mob to Lampe’s favorite song, “ABC”, by The Jackson 5 and a presentation of them all reciting words that described Lampe. The seniors came together and bought him a clock and Alex Barr created a painting of him conducting the band and all of them signed the frame.
Alexis Grow stated, “I’m really going to miss having Lampe as a band teacher next year. He made band fun to be a part of and it’s not going to be the same.”
