Lake Charles High School Kilties
Organized by Principal G. W. Ford, Beatrice Field and Grace Ulmer, the Kilties provided hundreds of young women the opportunity to express their Wildcat esprit de corps. The forty- four year existence of the Kilties made them one of the most enduring drill teams in the United States. The show on the field was a concrete depiction of those intrinsically American qualities of pride, loyalty, and spirit. The Kilties gave young women a means to convey their school's tradition of good citizenship, scholarships community service, honor and leaderships.
