Alma Mater of Sylvan Hills High School
by Ailene Duran
The "Alma Mater" is the school song of Sylvan Hills High School in Sherwood, Arkansas. It was co-written in 1956 by Ailene Duran to the song Come Christians Join and Sing. These lyrics fall into the public domain as they were first published in the Sylvan Hills High School yearbook The Bruin, without notice of copyright on either the lyrics or the book as a whole.[1]

Oh, Hail to thee the White & Blue
Oh Sylvan Hills we shall be true.
We will guard your name with pride,
And spread your fame both far and wide.
You have taught us loyalty
Your truth shall be our guiding light.
When through your portals we depart,
Oh, Sylvan Hills be in our hearts!
