1968 WATCHTOWER Rock Island Senior High School Rock Island, Illinois Volume 58

With Added Facilities ... Rocky High Expands Expansion .. . the by-word of 1968. This was the year for mental development. Many people heightened their thinking power; some ' " ex¬ panded their minds " by the use of LSD and other drugs. The Hippie movement spread over the country. From San Francisco ' s Haight-Ashbury to New York ' s East Village, young people were, in their opinions, where the action was. Rock Island ' s skyline was expanded by the comple¬ tion of the multi-million dollar Modern Woodmen insur¬ ance building as well as the 1700 foot seawall. We saw many changes on our own level during the past year. The opening of school on August 29, 1967 swelled the student body to 2204 students. Twenty-one new teachers were added to the faculty roll. Finishing touches were being put on the 1.5 million dollar North¬ west addition which was dedicated on November 4, 1967. Rocky students expanded their horizons in many dif¬ ferent ways. We pursued wide-spread educational op¬ portunities. Feverish studying the night before term finals was an experience shared by almost every student. Fri¬ day night games became vital p arts of the weekend ac¬ tivities. We cheered our teams on to dearly won victo¬ ries; yet remained loyal in the face of defeat. Expansion means to enlarge or develop. As citizens of a changing world, residents of a rapidly developing city and students of a growing school, we play a vital part in the expansion around us. It is for this reason that we have chosen expansion as the theme of the 1968 WATCHTOWER. 2
