Juniors Inhabit In-Between Stepping-Stone Ink-stained, bleary-eyed, but confident, a Junior stands at the half-way mark in his Rock Island Hig h School experience. His world is a paradox. A stepping -stone. Looking backward, he can touch the timidity of his Sophomore year—yet, still disdain it, shed it. Looking forward, he can anticipate one more harrowing year of term- papers, tests, and teachers. Caught in the routine, and the hum¬ drum, he can stretch, grow, discover, study, communicate. He can afford to waste time, to daydream. Tomorrow is his. More than nostalgia created by looking back. Juniors feel the anticipation of looking forward. A Junior improves his eyesight. He re¬ gards Rock Island High School with a cool¬ ness, a nonchalant perspective only new¬ found status can give. He views school assemblies at eye-level, from a varsity vantage point. A Junior experiences an apprenticeship. He augments varsity squads in sports, he challenges varsity students in accelerated classes, he comprises an integral part of varsity club leadership. A Junior balloons with new knowledge. He visits Our Town, ferrets the causes of the American Revolution, endures the dreaded PSAT and National Merit Scholarship tests. Confronted by ideas, warmed by friendship, pinched by schedules, he seeks the glow of achievement. This year, seven hundred and fifty-three Juniors stood at the half-way mark in their Rock Island High School experience. Gone was a Sophomore’s noisy exuberance, the self-conscious cockiness, the feigned air of confidence. Forgotten along with the old books and biology papers was a Sophomore’s fierce unity. In its place, a sense of identity, of singularity. LOOKING AHEAD-a year of unknown excitement—unfulfilled dreams — unpromised adventure. The Junior Class officers—President. John Pepke; Secretary, Sandy Salstrom; and Vice-President, Cari Sheets — represent this imagre. 102 Juniors
