The original Alma Mater:
It was written by Mr. Ken Bovio, a former music teacher and also one of Brantley's first assistant principals. He left in June 1974 to be principal of an elementary school. For reasons unclear, this Alma Mater fell from favor and it ceased to be used. The original Alma Mater plaque, made in 1972 by the Civinettes and hung from the east wall of the gymnasium, was not saved and it was destroyed in July 1999 when the gymnasium was demolished. In addition, the original builders' dedication plaques from 1973 and 1975 (in lieu of cornerstones) which were on the north wall of the school foyer also vanished during the demolition. Plaques similar to these in style can still be found at Forest City Elementary. As to why LBHS was called 'school of the future,' it was not due to any change in teaching methods from any other Seminole County schools of the time, but only due to the (perceived) 'futuristic' appearance of the Eoghan Kelley schools. This appellation was most probably the temporary whimsy of Bill Daugherty.
