VHS yearbook failed to include the band | Letter to the Editor

As a student who has been part of band for my entire Vashon High School career, as well as during my three years of middle school, I am deeply saddened by the exclusion of any sort of band recognition in my senior yearbook.
While I know that this simply must have been a mistake, I am requesting that, at the very least, the six graduating band members receive an alternate yearbook that includes photos of the band during at least one of the various events we attended — graduation, football games, basketball games, homecoming, etc., free of charge.
This does not seem unreasonable, considering that my family has spent well over $1,600 to support me, as have other families on their band students, so that we could pursue our musical endeavors throughout the course of our high school careers.
I would truly like my and my classmates’ memories of Vashon High School to be complete and positive in our future years of nostalgia.
