Culver Academy Graduation Photos: Honor Organization Performances

One of the first events of Culver Academy’s graduation weekend involved the performances of the Honor Organizations, which included the Color Guard, the CGA Silent Drill Team, the Equestriennes, the Four Gun Drill, and the Lancers. Originally scheduled for outdoors, I was looking forward to getting photos in natural light. The last time that I was able to shoot these groups outside was during the 2008-2009 school year. Unfortunately, Culver Academies had to make the decision to hold the performances indoors. The weather was nice so it was a bit of a surprise. I suspect that there was some fear of damaging the parade field before the final garrison parade. It rained a lot this past week, so I think the organizers made a good decision.

As always, the groups looked great and they changed their routines slightly from the performances over Parent’s Weekend and Alumni Weekend. In addition to different routines, the various teams honored their graduating seniors. It was classy and brought back some memories for me from when I was a senior in that same position 23 years ago.

Culver Academy Reunion Photos: Honor Group Performances

As a final wrapup to Reunion Weekend–a long, busy weekend for me–were the performances of Culver Academy’s Honor Organizations on Sunday afternoon. The cadets and coeds that make up the Equestriennes, Lancers, 4 Gun Drill, Silent Drill Team, and Girl’s Drill Team put on great shows. It was a nice end to a nostalgic weekend.

Culver Academy Photographer: Horsemanship Weekend- Lancer’s

I think this was the first performance of the Honor organization of the Lancers of the 2009-2010 school year. Considering that approximately one fourth of the team is new this year, I think they did a great job.

For those of you that know me, the Lancers are near and dear to my heart as I participated on this team 20+ years ago when I was cadet at Culver. I remember alumni bragging about how straight their formations were. I wouldn’t dare do that with this team. Great job Lancers! For more photographs of this team, see www.culverphotos.com.
