Mar)' Beth Arview Lou Ellen Aver)' Eileen Baker Byford Barnard Cindy Barra Bobby Beavers Dianna Absher Janice Alverson 52As the junior class began its third of four years here at F.C.H.S., time seemed to pass more quickly than in previous years. Many new and important responsibilities were suddenly placed upon their shoulders. As upperclassmen they were looked upon to set the examples of leadership, scholarship, and dependability. As juniors they were concerned about the many new aspects of their future lives. It was required of all juniors to take college preparatory tests to be used for future reference. They suddenly became more aware of the importance of grades and their curriculum choices. Junior activities for this year were many worthwhile community projects that benefited both the public and the educational unit of the town. Our class chose as attendants to the queen in the Homecoming Coronation two lovely and charming girls, Marie Doerr and Cindy Morris. The juniors also elected as class officers the following: president, Tim Ricci; vice-president, Rick Orlowski; secretary, Linda Lamont; and treasurer, Diana Absher. Mr. Warren was the class sponsor.

The 1969 season was the best in several years. Coach Winter’s Redbirds were contenders for the South 7 crown. The Redbirds persistent and tenacious defense pulled through many victories. The experienced Redbirds showed the advantage of ball control offense. They shook the foundations of many opposing teams with the ball carrying abilities of quarterback Don Bolin and fullback Tim Ricci. Ricci was chosen as one of the most outstanding players in Southern Illinois. The season started with a cancelled Cairo game and a 6-0 loss to Johnston City and ended with victories over consistent conference contenders Mt. Vernon, Herrin, and Marion.
