SENIORS PROVIDE LEADERSHIP AT R.I.H.S. The main duty of Senior Class officers, Jerry Green, Vice- President; Glenda McKee, Sec¬ retary; and Jim Johnson, Presi¬ dent, will be to plan the Senior Class Reunion of 1973. £ The future is most important to the senior who must soon face the world alone. No matter what the future may brinpr to him in the way of joy and sorrow, his high school days will always be remembered as some of the happiest days of his life. An event which always will be treasured and remembered by the senior was Home¬ coming, the first social highlight of the senior year. The Senior Class Play gave the class an opportunity to display their dramatic abilities while Senior Class Night and the Varsity Show, later in the year, combined their singing, dancing, and speaking talents. Hours of diligent study paid off for many de.serving seniors when the Top Ten, Top Five Percent, Senior Honor Roll, and largest National Honor Society ever were announced. Near the years end, along with the usual .spring fever, came the Junior-Senior Prom and the close of the athletic seasons of baseball, track, and golf. Nostalgia filled the air at Commencement exercises as .seniors realized that their three wonderful years of high .school life had come to an end. But although the.se years have come to an end, the memories which they have made for many will live on.
