The students found happi- ness and peace within the security of knowledge. The freedoms given at FCHS formed peace.

In the clothing department, sashes, long and wide ties, maxi coats, mini skirts, and vests were commonly seen. Hair was the essential part of the mod outfit. Beards, wigs, and long hair on boys and girls characterized the 1970 look. The Afro, or natural, look was popular with the FCHS Negro. In music, CTA, Led Zeppelin, Tom Jones, Three Dog Night, Blue Cheer, Jackson Five, and Jimi Hendrix entertained FCHS students. The local favorite, The Electric Theater, also had a rise in popularity. Peace symbols, black arm bands, head strings worn Indian style and chains completed the assessories for 1970. Basically the fad in 1970, carried over from 1969, was to be individual in everything. Students expressed their inside feelings as they did their own thing. (Academics An armful of textbooks, cluttered papers tied up with a string, and bookbags overflowing with the daily necessities for school characterized the average FCHS teacher. Teaching at FCHS was a pleasure. The individual freedoms given to the students at FCHS releaved the teachers from being “on duty” during lunch hours and between class changes. A teacher’s lounge was provided for relaxation during the short period of time a teacher was without a class to teach. The teachers at FCHS were the key to the success of the students. An individual concern and much patience enabled students to achieve the highest goals. The staff of 44 teachers guided nearly 900 students through the year of 1969—70 that proved to be profitable for each student. The understanding and genuine interest the administrative staff gave to the students formed peace. Mrs. Lorice O’Connor carries on duties in the main office as school receptionist and bookkeeper. Mrs. Iris Poff Secretary to the Principal Mrs. Lorice O’Connor School Receptionist and Bookkeeper Principal Ray Hollandsworth directs Mrs. Poff in constructing an important business letter concerning the educational pro- cesses at FCHS. Mrs. Iris Poff as secretary to the principal keeps attendance records for the nearly 900 students at FCHS. 8 Ray L. Hollandsworth B.S., M.S. Virginia Polytechnic Institute Principal Robert E. Peak B.S., M.Ed. Virginia Polytechnic Institute Assistant Principal The administration at FCHS consisted of two principals and the school board consisting of eight members. The administration kept FCHS on a smooth-running schedule, supplied the school with all needed equipment and gave the needed assistance for providing new additions to FCHS. Mr. Hollandsworth examines a recent issue of an educators guide— an important resource in directing institutes of modern education. School board members take time out of their regular monthly meeting for a picture. A familiar sight is recreated every morning when Mr. Peak accurately sets the clock in the main office. 9 ,3[rt m j ubjunctitoe (JHootl j ljakespear jltudents ,3[ace (An interesting (And Enjopable ,3[toe The English teachers composed the largest number to teachers in the same field of study of Floyd County High School. Educational television added quite alot of variety to the schedules of English study. Recordings and audio visual aids gave additional knowledge.

The guidance department was the central department where stu- dents could get sound advice and much needed college in- formation, help on personal problems, and scheduling of classes. An attempt was made to guide the 900 students of FCHS to achieve the goals that were important for the individual’s future. Mr. Mannon studies a chart for instructing students for scholarships.

Class work was expanded through regular viewing of educational television. Special magazines assisted social studies students, math instructors took courses enabling them to teach new techniques, and courses in liberal arts were extended to produce plays, musical concerts, and publi- cations. The students at FCHS were given as much freedom as possible. Debating and learning to respect other’s opinions formed a peaceful relationship between teachers and students. Classes at FCHS were an enjoyable facet of learning and the knowledge and insight gained formed the path the students traveled during the years. In the fall of 1965, two hundred five eighth graders gathered in the space designated in the hugh gymnasium of Floyd County High School. Teachers led the small, timid students to homerooms for schedules and instructions to follow during their first day of high school. As eighth graders, the class of 1970 accepted more responsibility, created new ideas, and worked together to achieve their goals at FCHS. A few of those goals were reached during the class of 1970’s freshmen year. One freshmen secured a seat in the District Forensic Team. Freshmen boys took important roles in all sport activities and three girls became part of the Junior Varsity Cheerleading Squad. The sophomore year proved to be another year of success. Several sophomore boys were accepted to play Varsity Football. One girl represented the class as the only Varsity Cheerleader from the sophomore class. One boy took part in State competition in track, which was an unusual honor for a sophomore. Two class members retained finalist positions in the VFW Speaking Contest, three girls became yearbook staff members, and one girl was accepted for the majorette team. The Junior year was an especially rewarding year. Thirty-six students were tapped into the Beta Club. Five Juniors from the three publication staffs represented FCHS at SIPA. Two Juniors represented the school at All-State Chorus. Early in the spring, Junior officers and Miss Ruth Anfi Slusher made prom arrangements. In May, the entire class took part in transforming the cafeteria into “Three Coins in a Fountain.” The Senior year climaxed the career of 129 students in high school. Five more seniors were tapped into the Beta Club. Senior privileges, made possible by Mr. Hollandsworth and Senior officers acting as representatives of class opinions, proved to be just one more big accomplishment of the complete union and ability to work together of the Class of 1970. The history of the class of 1970 was the reward for the many hours spent planning, studying, and creating. The one-hundred twenty nine members, composing a minority of the student body, were proud to be a part of the successful Class of 1970. Front Row: R. Pauley, President; M. Slusher, Vice President; J.

It was a busy whirl of activity that resulted in many successful programs. It gave each student who wanted to participate in the activity a chance to use talents in artistic, creative, and musical areas that are not always a part of the academic schedule. Working together, students learned to know each of their fellow classmates. It gave ample opportunity for leadership and dreams soon became realities of success. The hard work of each student who made an organization successful was reflected in the ratings given to FCHS’s athletic teams, publication staffs, One-Act Play, and club organizations. Rubg |iratt Plans for Homecoming festivities began early in September. Can- didates for the court were chosen and voted upon by homerooms. Three Senior girls, Sandra Hollandsworth, Pat Weddle, and Ruby Reed, were chosen as candidates for queen. As the moment for the crowning of the queen approached, the band played; escorts met the girls and took them out on the field. Ruby Reed was crowned FCHS’s Eighth Annual Homecoming Queen. The football team won the game with Rural Retreat, which was placed number one on the district. Lester Mannon, co-captain, led the team in a chant, “We’re number one!” A dance, sponsored by the SCA, was held in the cafeteria. Music was provided by the Electric Theater led by Mike Slusher.

Carlene Roberson, class secretary, took on the responsibility of keeping everything organized. Rhonda Thomas gave needed instructions to painters as rock walls were formed around the fountain. The fountain became the center of attraction. Music was provided by “Liquid Smoke,” a band from North Carolina. Benny Ninmann, former graduate of FCHS was a member of the band. Entertainment was provided by James Quesenberry who sang “I’ve Gotta Be Me”. Elaine Quesinberry and Dwight Hopper sang a duet entitled, “Michelle”. Kerry Lawrence played an arrangement on the piano of “Born Free.” The Junior Class prided themselves on the well-organized work and financial statis of not going in debt as others always had. S.

To start the year, the choir performed for a taping on educational television . Thanksgiving activities were highlighted by the music provided by the choir. Christmas was a very special occasion for the choir. The members were dressed in formal attire. Marching in from the back of stage, the advanced singers filled the stage decorated with a large background star and the traditional nativity scene. The choir presented a modern cantata. Christmas ended the first semester and the music changed for the spring mood. Another television appearance was scheduled for the second semester, taking the choir to the studios to WBRA Television. The Choir festival, held at ECHS this year, was a big undertaking for the choir members. It involved a lot of work to be host to choirs from all over Virginia.

The Student Cooperative Association consisted of every student at FCHS. The students participated in nominating and electing officers and homeroom representatives. The officers and the homeroom representatives made up the student council. Its main objective was to maintain cooperation among the faculty and stu- dents by establishing and carrying out rules that would benefit the student body. In 1969-70 the SCA sponsored various activities. Some of these were: sending a twelve member delegation to district assembly at Auburn, the Homecoming dance, four sock hops, the Christmas Assembly, locker inspections, decorating the Christmas tree, and a trip to Saturday Session at WDBJ-TV, Roanoke.

Gradually, Seniors arrived with robes in hand, and walked into the open doors of FCHS for the last time as a part of the student body. One hundred and twenty Seniors gathered in the cafeteria for the traditional ensemble of robes, hats and tassels. As the Seniors began marching in, proud parents smiled, cameras flashed and the student body began to consider the close relationships they had shared with the Seniors of ’69. The address was given by Mr. Alderman. The band and choir contributed with processional music and arrangements for the pleasure of the audience. Various awards and scholarships were presented. Diplomas were received and soon the exercises came to a close. So much of FCHS was found in those Seniors: cheerleaders, ball teams, state honors, clubs and staffs. They left an example of superior quality and a code of accomplishment difficult to match. The jubilant voices, smiles and occasional sentimental tears climaxed five years of success, accomplishment, and knowledge. Outside, the pink haze was gone. The dark night, twinkling stars, and tranquility met the graduated Seniors as they merged from the doors of FCHS. Mr. Hollandsworth presents the gavel award to Foster Bond.

Many FCHS teams retained top district positions after seasons were completed. More representatives of All District Teams were accepted from FCHS as a result of the determination of the athletes to be among the best. Floyd County High School has the most efficient and modern athletic equipment, the largest variety of sports, and dedicated fans, and coaching staff.
