REALITY As students foresaw the closeness of graduation, the realization of careers and major decisions became a reality instead of a far-off dream. Values and goals were examined and plans began to formulate. To begin these plans, seniors were offered vocational education which involved on-the-job experience. Introduced to the senior students this year was Home Economics Related Occupations (HERO). The course was a full-year program designed to give Students an opportunity to explore their interests. The community provided practical training in Home Ec areas. ‘‘The students have a talent. They take this talent out in the community, who in turn, makes it become a skill, " said HERO instructor Donna Schepers. Teaching was a profession that many students were considering.
