WHEN SPORTS NIGHTS WERE PART OF SAN FERNANDO VALLEY EDUCATION

CHERISHING OUR VALLEY      2013

A generation of San Fernando Valley high school students were offered "Sock Hops" and "Sports Nights".  To protect gymnasiums' basketball floors, students left their shoes by gym doors and paraded their "bitchen" socks to impress their friends. Sports nights featured sporting activities just for the fun of participating in them.
