DHS Alma Mater

By Renee Shatley
Retired Choral Director
Lift our voices as we rise,
Swell the chorus to Draughn High.
Proud to show our Black and Gold,
Moving forward, brave and bold.
Binding friendships that are true.
Wildcats, hail to thee.
No matter where our paths may roam,
we will sing of dear ol’ Draughn.
