TEKONSHA COMMUNITY HIGH SCHOOL TEKONSHA, MICHIGANFOREWORD
As a tribute to our highly successful football season, the Annual Staff has centered the yearbook around a football game. As in school, the students are the active participants in one phase or another of the game. As you leaf through the pages of this book and become spectators again we hope you will be caught up in the spirit and enthusiasm of the school year.
The School Board and the P.T.A. are symbolized by the Officials. The administration and faculty who guide the students toward the achievement of their goals are represented as Coaches. The High School student body is represented by the Starting Lineup and the Junior High by the Reserve Lineup. Time-outs symbolize the time the students take from their busy schedules to devote to the many extracurricular activities. The Halftime Show signifies the varied social functions. The athletes who took part in basketball, baseball, and track, as well as football, have gained the admiration of the entire faculty and student body. In recognition of their achievements, this section is called the Hall of Fame. The Spectators, an essential part of any game, are represented by the Elementary School. After the Game symbolizes graduation and the Senior Trip at the completion of the school year.
