C.W.T.-Vocational Building do
Working the graveyard shift
The majority ruled in favor, .saying a divided day helped eliminate the "School Day Blues”; C.W.T. (Cooperative Work Training) and Vocational Building students agreed.
Before the sun awakened, nine carpenter-heads were on their way to class. Unlike the normal "school boys", who went to school at 8:00, they battled the 7:00 traffic on their way to Chippian-nock Cemetery. They started the year off by digging the trenches. They used the same backhoc which the cemetery used to dig graves. Besides stirring up a few goulish thoughts, they conjured up questions like, "How did they dig graves in the winter?” The students became aquainted with the job and hard work began. The completion of a green house and storage house slid under their belts at the cemetery.
A change of pace set into the minds of the C.W.T. workers as they planned fund raisers. As in the past, the year included a class trip to one of theQ.C. plants such as John Deere or International Harvester. The idea did not excite them since they had visited them years before. So. the money hungry class began working double-time. They raised a buck or two with the usual bake sale and candy sales. As the year progressed the hard work paid off. They vacationed off to the capital of the Big Mac - the McDonald Corporate in Schauberg. Illinois.
Both Cooperative Work Training and Vocational Building combined academic skills and labor skills and produced another aspect of learning.

As Keith Graham soon found out. carpentry was not |ust drmng nails into wood, but also being able to stand high places.

HERO- The Home Economics Related Occupations, taught under the direction of Mrs. Franck, helped the students learn their career interest. The HERO program aided the students to develop interest in fields related to food and nutrition. The students, who had to be sixteen years old or older, attended either the HERO I class for juniors or the HERO II offered to seniors. After their classes students went directly to work, depending on their
schedule. Each person put forth their dedication and in return received the experience, skill, and challenge of a job.
The development of the HERO program has been essential to the students future. The people in the program knew one of the factors in finding a job was to have experience to obtain the suitable job. The HERO class enabled the student to train himself in a related area of occupation.
