In work, school and fun Students adjust Fashions at the Rock got on the right track. The style moved away from preppy and on into punk. Turned up collars and slicked back hair prevailed. Along with the change in style came the raise in prices, which prompted students to think about spending money, and sent them out pounding the pavements to get jobs. It also sent them into banks to open savings accounts. Seniors also began to think about prices of colleges and they looked into opening credit and savings accounts, as well as student loans and scholarships. Before the students left for college, however, three of the seniors attempted to get the school administration in groove with the students. These three posed as the student school board representatives. They were Steve Katz, Chris Cockcrill, and Anthony McGee. They took a positive approach at changing the school to fit the needs of the student body, instead of the usual negative attitude that shot down most proposals. The students had clearly made an attempt at getting the school on the right track and with some minor set backs, achieved this. Instead of letting others do their work for them, some students took to doing things themselves. They turned to making their own wardrobes, getting jobs without the help of the school, and even raising money within the classes themselves. The changes made throughout the year caused some problems for students, as well as administrators, yet the people at the Rock pulled its pride, determination, and its knowledge together to get the school and all it entailed on the way to the correct path. In short. Rocky was on the right track. Jacque Frey joins in a pirra party for the new youth pastor at her church. Bethel Assembly of God. At the Homecoming assembly, the crowd cheers enthusiastically as Dion Brooks and Paula Caras are crowned King and Queen. Rocky cheerleaders support their team with a banner. Cheerleaders not only aroused spirit at the games, hut also decorated the athletes lockers, made banners and in other ways increased sportsmanship and spirit.
