What a great time it was in the 60's when we were in school at Sunset High School. We came from 2 junior high schools, Greiner and Stockard. We also came from 10 elementary schools: Arcadia Park, Leila P. Cowart, Margaret B. Henderson, Anson Jones, Lida Hooe, L. O. Donald, George Peabody, Rosemont, Stevens Park, and Winnetka. But when we came together at Sunset, we were all finally Bison! We shared joys and sorrows, classes and teachers, sports and activities, made new friends and held onto old friends. We made lasting ties with each other and with Oak Cliff. We survived the 60's peace movement, the Vietnam War era, the Beatles, the assassinations of Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Civil Rights movement.What a great time it was in the 60's when we were in school at Sunset High School.

The history of the drill team goes back to our first year of Sunset (1926) they were called SUNSET HERITAGE PEP. This lasted until 1942 and Ms. Mae Venable was the director of a new group called the SUN RAYS. This lasted only 2 years, Class of 1942 and 1943. From 1944 to 1949 we did not have any pep or drill team. I do not know why, but perhaps it was due to the WWII. The class of 1950-51 Maureen Hearn was the new director of the very first BISONETTES and the first captain was Judy Moon. The class of 1955 was Mrs. Ford first year as the Sponsor of the Bisonettes. So moving fast forward to 2010-2011, 60 years later the Bisonettes are alive and well.
