Riassunto: The distinguished title of being the first high school precision dance and drill team in the world was initiated in Greenville, Texas, when Miss Gussie Nell Davis, originator of the world-famous Kilgore Rangerettes, began her teaching career at Greenville High School in 1928. Miss Davis' love for dancing influenced her girls' physical education classes through movement to music. She saw the need for extracurricular activities for these young women and began with organizing a pep squad to perform during halftime activities during the football games. Her creative ideas sparked the growth of this pep squad into a drum and bugle corps that transitioned into a precision dance and drill group, The Flaming Flashes, chartered in 1934. Dedicated to Miss Lori Butler, who celebrated her Silver Anniversary as director of this group, the chronological history encompasses activities from 1928 through 2015 and includes many interesting anecdotes contributed by former members of the GHS Band and Flashes, their family members, and community leaders.
