GHV School Song
There's a cheer from the stands and the bleachers as we show our loyalty.
There's a cheer from the students and teachers; we are tops as you can see.
Come and join us in song to our colors. Red and black we're proud to be!
We are tops above all others. Garner High, hats off to thee.
School song believed to be written by Garner High School student Ruth Duesenberg and one other student (name unknown) in the 1930s.
