Alma Mater - What you may not know!
 Dorman is probably unique among public high schools in this country in having both an Alma Mater and a fight song written especially for it, rather than being "adopted" from a familiar tune. Earl Mays, a gifted composer and retired Army band director, was the first band director at the new Dorman High School in 1964, and he composed both of these fine and stirring pieces. He did this without any thought of recognition or gain, but just as a matter of course of his job. (How many other high school band directors would have even thought of, much less have been capable of, such a task?) This gave some instant tradition to a new high school, which has now become genuine tradition for over forty years, thanks to his talent.
