At Brandon High, Eagles return for 100th anniversary

Old friends shared screams and hugs, former classmates filled in the gaps since they last ran into each other and crowds gorged on food truck fare.

Years of planning by the Brandon High 100th celebration committee culminated March 1 with a daylong celebration that featured food, games, entertainment and fellowship. The event at the school's E.F. McLane Stadium drew thousands.

As you would expect from any centennial celebration, the gathering spanned generations. The Eagles mascot milled about, posing for photos with young children.

Cheerleaders, steppers, the Aquilla show choir, the marching band and other student groups performed. And graduates from years past showed off grandchildren.

The event concluded with musical performances from Jeannie Ortega and former American Idol star Jeremy Rosado, who once attended Brandon High. Times staff
