Life at Tecumseh High was not composed onlylof studies and extracurricular activities, t ere were certain intangible ingredients that can be defined only by a senior at THS, As we glance bac through the pages of time we remember the final year of our high school life--the first day of the 1967- 68 school year, the time and effort spent on learning, the mad scramble before the anticipated win in football or basket- ball, the "sneak trip", the hushed re- verence during the singing of the "Alma Mater" as we took our last walk in the familiar halls. With one cycle of education and life complete, seniors at THS have learned responsibility and self-dependence. Lives of the seniors were molded by many hands--the hands of teachers, the hands of administrators, the hands of parents. From the time the seniors ,graduate most are on their own, Some seniors may leave home--they're college bound. Others may descend on the business world. No matter what the choice may be,the seniors' future lives are a direct result of their days at THS and the knowledge gained there. 18 MIKE MAHONEY, Vice-President BETTY PELLA , Treasurer DICK PIERSOL, Ways and Means CARLA GIBSON , Secretary Having always looked forward to being Seniors, the class of '68 had its dream come true September 5th, the first day of the 1967-68 school ear, Numerous class meetin s where held, where, under the leagership of able class officers, many important decisions were made. The Senior Class of '68 selected yellow and white as class colors. Complementing these colors was the class flower, the yellow rose. The class motto, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step," charac- terized t e tmified Luiderstanding that graduation was the first "step" into a world of work and wonder. The rewarding event for twelve years of school li e was the Senior "sneak trip" to the Ozarks. Reali- ziig that approximately two thousand do ars was needed to take the class on their three-da vac ation together, the final year of high school was Filled wit ftuid -raising activities. Class dues, magazine sales, a soup supper, and the Senior Class la contributed considerably to tflfe tyund. Four years of high school life paid off May 24, 1968, as fifty- one seniors received their long- awaited diplomas.

The five queen candidates found themselves slushing their way to their "mud-covered" escorts awaiting them at the center of the field. Cheryl Davis and Russ Eltiste relinquished their crowns to the newly elected queen and king, Barb Lempke and Mike Phillips. The hard work put into preparing the activities was not at all hampered by the de- pressing weather.
