AT THE TOP OF THE SCHOLASTIC LADDER “It must be nice,” might be the comment of one admiring the top five percent of the graduating class p tured above. Front row: Nancy Bolte, Carolyn Sims, Kay Anderson, Georgia Thompson, Barb Sax, Cindy Brown, Chns Grams, Karen Haburthur, Glenda McKee, and Jill Gromoll. Back row: Ron Cohn, Ruth Coffin, Alice Lemkau, Nadyne Lind- gren, Linda Skillman, Barb Flack, Sandra Hainline, Penny Germain, Sharon Anderson, Sherry Anderson, Emmert Clevenstine, Ted Maxeiner, Jon Lindstrom, Bob Holcomb, Tim Kratzen, and Jim Holland. This year, twenty-seven seniors received the honor of being named the top 5 percent of the 1963 graduating class. The top 5 per cent is determined at the end of the junior year by the grades the seniors received during their sophomore and junior year. They become automatic members of the Na¬ tional Honor Society and compete for Na¬ tional Scholarships.

JUNIORS NOW BECOME A PART OF RI’S VARSITY The junior class of 1962-1963 has acquired new responsibilities this year unknown to them as sophomores, and they have faced these new duties with frreat v ' ijror. As sophomores, they were a more independent body, due to the sejr- rejrated athletic activities and social events, but, as juniors, they have become members of the varsity athletic teams, and have become eligible to attend the junior-senior dances. Academically they also .see big changes. The curriculum of the juniors becomes markedly harder, and on occa¬ sion, they are introduced to college pre¬ paratory courses. They also become con¬ scious of striving to gain entrance into the top ten, the top five percent, and the National Honor Society. The.se organiza¬ tions carry prestige, and the middle- classmen are hopeful of admittance in their .senior year. In conclusion, the junior year, the transition year, is a big change in the life of Rocky students. They experience mixed emotions during this period: hard¬ ships, failures, joy and succe.ss. They have good times and bad times, but. neverthele.ss, the majority of juniors find it an enjoyable and rewarding year.
