With a peaceful sunset fading behind Lake McDonald in Montana's Glacier National Park, Stacy Wahe finds the background per- fect for a peaceful reflection. Fitting more suitcases in the trunk than there is room for tends to be tedious work. People to People trips provide Barb Eagle and Colette Chickris with world travel ex- perience. The two girls depart from the Mo- line airport headed for Europe. The summer is made for enjoying the park. Scott Baltunis, Miranda Callahan, Chris Leonard and Andre Dehouiser connect to form a train on the slide at Lincoln Park. Student Life 7

6 Student Sun bathe on sandy beaches of Ja- maica? Ski down the snowy moun- tains of Canada? Simply take a vaca- tion anywhere?! Anyone of these suggestions appealed to Rocky stu- dents. Whether the "get away" oc- cured during the summer or winter seasons, students took the trips any- way they came. Seniors Jim Moore, John Hass, Pam Hird and Kelley Wendland traveled to Florida for the Key Club Convention in July of 1983. "It was great to have a Florida tan this sum- mer," Pam said. While Florida, the Sunshine State, drew hoards of sun searchers, other students traveled to such places as Jamaica to sample the tropical life as well as to Canada to Students Travel World Sample Jamaica, Florida, Chicago practice their skiing skills in 80" weather. Skiing and sunbathing proved to be the most popular vacation activi- ties. Attending college and profes- sional football games and major league baseball games added an- other facet to the vacation fun. Funtime played an important part in Rocky student's vacations. But it was not all fun and games. Visiting colleges required a large amount of the senior's time as did homework for a majority of the students. "I al- ways ski over Christmas vacation, so my homework ends up getting done the night before vacation is over," admitted senior Bart Roberts. Although homework bogged down vacations, the fun times of basking in the sun, skiing down far away mountains or doing the limbo in Jamaica required much more time. Many of Rocky's students didn't have the opportunity to travel far and wide as they kept themselveq busy at various kinds of summert jobs from being life guards to work- ing at McDonalds. While they may not have had as much fun, they end- ed up with fatter wallets. Perhaps these are the students who will trav- el this summer while others will be hard at work. Relaxing to mellow music and becomin absorbed in her favorite novel, Lynel Firtli catches some summer rays. I I Life 5 i

8 Student omecoming loats Taste f Heaven A week chock full of events and preparations led up to the assembly, parade, game and dance-all common to the homecoming hubbub. Once students found their seats at the assembly, they found them- selves overcome with laughter as they watched the "jockettes" per- form the renditions of favorite cheers. After the preliminary assembly events came the introduction of the court and crowning of the King and Queen. Included in the court were as follows: Jim Moore, Joel Keim, Brynn Sheley, Mark 0'Melia, Eric Lundgren, Nancy LeWarne, Jane Vogel, Vickie Streiter, Kristi Fackel and Jami Handelman. John Hass and Lisa Keys were bestowed prince and princess, and the reigning King and Queen were crowned as William Clay and Linda Burkehead. Hugs, kisses and a few tears of happiness filled the fieldhouse floor as congratulations passed along as students left school headed for the parade. Although the wind blew strongly, the floats held together long enough to be judged. The freshmen placed first, followed by seniors, juniors, and sophomores placing 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, respectively. Following the parade, and ending the first of two Homecoming even- ings, was the game against the Quin- cy Blue Devils which ended in vic- tory for both varsity and sophomore squads. With a football victory and the nervous anticipation of couples ad- ded to the already party like atmo- sphere, students attended the Home- coming dance, held the evening after the game. "A Little Bit of Heaven" overtook the gym with bal- loons, clouds and an air of Hheaven- ly bliss" for those who attended. Homecoming '83 left special memories for the new freshmen as their first dance, the seniors as their last Homecoming dance, and even for the sophs and juniors as another in the list of activities they had en- joyed at the Rock.
