Ramettes

Here is the Ramettes' 60th Anniversary Program passed out during the football game.

Green represents updates.

Welcome to the 

60th Anniversary of the

Whitehall-Yearling Ramettes

September & October 2021

The WYHS Ramettes were founded in the summer of 1960 by Linda Hunter & Sally Shade, WYHS Class of 1961.  Linda’s mother made their corduroy skirts. The berets & turtleneck sweaters were purchased from a catalog!  The band director didn’t allow them to march with the band their 1st year.  The next year, the reluctant band director decided to allow the Ramettes to perform routines with the marching band.

In their first decades, Ramettes marched in football games, pep rallies & parades. The 1977 Ramettes & the Ram Band marched in President Carter’s Inaugural Parade. 

In the 1980s, WYHS Ramettes transitioned from a drill team to include dance routines.  Since entering competitions in 1975, Ramettes have won 14 State Championships & 9 National Championships.  

21st Century Ramettes continue to perform in football games, pep rallies, parades, dance routines & enter competitions.  Today, the Ramettes’ Coaches are 2010 WYHS Alumni Mari & Maylinda Alamo, who were Ramettes from 2008-10 & Ramette Captains in 2010.
