Drama students participate in all aspects of play production.
Ann Townsend, a member of the cast, stated "Preparing for the play was worth all the trouble when 1 heard the applause from the audience.” "The students worked hard putting the play together," commented Mrs. Gendc, director of the play. "One obstacle in producing the play was Larry Harrison. being the lead character, had to manipulate the wheelchair around the small area of the little theater stage."
Not only did the members perform, but they assisted the sixth hour play Production Class in making scenery. Members also helped Mrs. Gende with other aspects of the play: Sue Lubben. assistant director; Mary Ncssler, Publicity; Mar-Ice Ncderbrock, Props; John Schweska, Lights; and Terri Smith, Sound.
After weeks of memorizing lines and long practices, the Drama Club presented The Man
Who Cimc To Dinner, a Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman comedy.
Sheridcn Whiteside, critic, lecturer and radio orater was portrayed by Larry Harrison. He took over the Stanley home after falling and supposedly-breaking his hip on the steps of their home. He caused havoc within the house and with the people, and he filled the house with strange objects such as a "Roach City", an octopus, four penguins and an Egyptian mummy case. Mr. Whiteside is told by Doctor Bradley (Steve Hudson) that his hip wasn't broken in the fall. At the end of the play, Mr. Stanley gives Mr. Whiteside 15 minutes to clear out or he would be removed. As Mr. Whiteside stepped out on the steps, he fell again. The final action has Dr. Bradley and Bert Jefferson (Brad Sweeney) putting Mr. White-side back into the wheelchair.

Being a member of National Honor Society. Quill and Scroll, or Key Club meant assuming a leadership roll. Key Club’s theme "Strengthen from within" assumed members would work to strengthen the school. To that end. Key Clubbers started the year off by trying to encourage spirit at the last home football game. They sold balloons that were released at kick-off time.
Another stated goal of Key Club involved bettering "the home, community, and school to become a better person”. To help others. Key Club donated one hundred dollars to UNICEF.
Dressed as leprechauns. Key Club members delivered green carnations on St. Patricks’s Day. The selling of "I Love Rocky" buttons rounded out the fund-raisers for the year. A portion of the profits were donated to the athletic fund.
In addition, each Monday two different Key Club members attended the Kiwanis meeting as Rocky’s representatives. They became involved in the Kiwanis’ funds raisers of Pancake Day and Peanut Day.
Although neither National Honor Society nor Quill and Scroll were active groups, their membership was comprised of leaders. To be a member of either honorary, quality work had to have been achieved.
National Honor Society membership was awarded to students who had maintained a 3.65 or higher cumulative grade point average. Quill and Scroll (journalistic) membership was earned by having been a major editor on cither the Crimson Crier or Watchtowcr or achieved distinguished work for a year on both the newspaper and yearbook. Students also had to be in the upper one-third of their class.
As the "cream" of the National Honor Society. High Honor Students were those who had cumulative grade point averages above 4.0. For those students, a straight A average was not good enough, they excelled by achieving A’s in the x-weighted courses.
