This year’s Junior Class Homecoming float took third place in the judging. The theme was “Redbirds Got Soul.”
Building up their funds for the prom, the juniors sold Tom-Wat kits.

82Freshmen Begin a Long Journey
The freshman class of 1975 were very bewildered when they entered the halls of F.C.H.S. The freshmen adapted to the new and different responsibilities confronting them. They discovered that participating in clubs and many outside activities was part of the regular routine.
Forgetting locker combinations, getting to classes late, and losing class assignments were a few of the many aggravating problems with which the freshmen dealt.
The freshman class made wise choices as they elected Cappi Darnell and Susan Hill as their Homecoming attendants.
Class officers were: President, Tim Mitchell; Vice-President, Joey Demaretti; Secretary, Sue Brinkley; Treasurer, Kitten Spowart. Class sponsor was Mrs. Dorris.
