They were my friends.
We did lots of things together;
We played our games And sang our songs.
When we worked, we worked hard. When we studied, we studied a lot. We didn't always win.
We didn't always pass.
But, we tried our best.
We did it together.
They were my friends —
I hope they always will be.

Mr. Greg Zyber, coordinator of the Co-op program, helps students to find a job that will help the student learn about a skill that they would like to pursue after graduation. The Coop program revolves around local and area businesses which hire the student. The owner of the business then grades the student on how well he does the job while training him for the job. Juniors and seniors may enroll in this program . The program is set up so that the student may take their required classes in the morning and then go to their job in the afternoon. The student on the Co-op program receives three school credits.
The Vo-ed program which has the same aspects as Co-op (learning a trade) has more of a school atmosphere. The Vocational Center, located in Battle Creek, has more equipment than the average high school to help the student learn a skill to get a job after graduation. The center has several classes that can be taken such as, child care, cosmetology, secretarial practices, welding, auto mechanics, carpentry and plumbing, plus other various classes that will help the student learn about the field he or she wishes to follow after high school.STUDENT

Teams Have Disappointing Season

The Girls’ Varsity Basketball Team had difficulty this year adjusting to a new coach, Miss Coleen Wendel, and new team members. They had a season record of four wins and eight losses. In spite of the difficulty, the girls won second place in the district tournaments.
"This year was a building year for our team, but we are hoping for a successful season next year," said Coach Wendel, who is in her first year of coaching.
Lori Phelps was outstanding player for the team, Bertha Miller was named most valuable and Diane Saltzgaber was the most improved.

The high-point girl for the team was Brenda Kelly with a total of 20 points.

Freshman Goes to State
The 1975 Girls' Track Team had 16 members, two managers, and one coach, and together they won two meets.
Although they did not have a victorious season, they had an only freshman, Laurie Stall, place third in the two-mile run in the regionals which allowed her to go to state.
Another team member, Connie Baird, was recognized as she went undefeated in league competition, in the 880-yard run.
Susan Saltzgaber received an award for being the most valuable player for the team. Laurie Stall won the award for the most improved team member.
Bad Turnout Proves Disappointing
Despite the bad turnout, the five men who stuck with the Track Team participated in three track meets, one at Springport, one at Michigan Center (regionals), and one at Hillsdale (league meet). Gary Bartow placed fifth in the 220-yard dash at regionals. Coach Robert Currie commented, ’’The track season was a very frustrating experience for both the boys and myself. We were unable to compete satisfactorily due to a lack of interest in the track program.
The turnout for junior high track was very good with 21 members. The junior high participated in five meets not winning any.

Students Have New Complex
Tekonsha School System acquired a new seventh and eighth grade complex this year. The complex consists of five rooms, four classrooms and a room in the middle which can be used for different purposes such as combining classes, class meetings, or it can be used as a separate classroom.
This year for the first time the Wade Patten Memorial Award was presented to a junior high student. The award is based on academics, leadership, and athletics including cheerleading and physical education. The recepient this year was Jeff Williams.
Also the junior high students started a Student Council. The Council arranges for the social and political events in the junior high.

ADMINISTRATION AND FACULTY_____________________
Providing a Solid Beginning
One of the advantages to teaching and learning in a small community is the closeness of ties between all elements of the school program. That is certainly the case at Tekonsha, where close ties have always existed between the elementary and secondary branches of the school system.
All members of the Board of Education and of the community at large exhibit great pride in Tekonsha's forward-looking elementary school program , so rare in communities this size.
Headed by principal Keith Clark, the 17 member elementary faculty brings a wide range of background and training to share with their students.

If you feel you're better than your job. If tomorrow looks as dull as yesterday. If you've got a body and a brain with potential. Maybe we’re for you. And vice versa.
If you’ll give us a couple of years, we’ll give you a future And maybe train you for a career in one of the important fields of tomorrow. Like electronics, computers or aircraft maintenance.
We are not inviting you on a picnic. The Marine Corps is a tough team to make. We keep our tradition strong, our standards high and our ranks small.
But if you think you're quality. If you want more out of life than a pushover job. If you really want a future, and you’re ready to work for it...
Then we’re interested in you.

There it is. Nine months of our lives together in a book. It’s all4ufliWy now and it’s all there - our hopes, our dreams, our accomplishments, our failures. Now we're immortal and it feels good.
I'd like to thank Sutula Studio, Jim Thompson of Taylor Publishing Company, the administration, faculty, our advertisers and patrons, our advisor Mrs. Sally Hammond, my Yearbook Staff, and the students of Tekonsha High School for making this book a reality.
Yearbooks are forever so now we are forever too.

A SPECIAL FRIEND
If there's someone you can talk to Someone no one can replace If there's someone you can laugh with Till tears run down your face . . .
If there's someone you can turn to When you need a helping hand If there's someone you can count on To advise and understand . . .
If there's someone you can sit with
And not need to say a word
If there’s someone you can trust
To keep each confidence she’s heard . . .
If there's someone you think more of
As each year comes to an end -
You're a very lucky person
For you've found a Special Friend!
- Doris Faulhaber
Lifelong Friends . . .
what lovelier thing Could the hand of life bestow Than a friendship built upon All the precious things you know;
Faith in each other and the ties Of understanding old and wise.
A friendship flavored by the past,
Old swimming holes and days shot through With loafing . . . fishing , . .
The crazy things that small boys do,
A hideout in the woods somewhere, With adventure on the bill of fare.
School days and hockey, bikes and skates,
A girl's face tangled in your heart,
Your first small job that in some way Became the groundwork of your start; The glamor of a high school dance That seemed all beauty and romance.
These are the ties, the little things That add up to the kindly sum Of all that makes the days worthwhile,
The precious memories that become Strong as a hemper rope to bear The strands of friendship woven there.
Earth holds no greater good I think Than friendship welded link by link.
- Edna Jaques
(Read by salutatorian, Debbie Johnson at Commencement, 1975.)
They were my friends.
We did lots of things together;
We played our games And sang our songs.
When we worked, we worked hard. When we studied, we studied a lot. We didn't always win.
We didn't always pass,
But, we tried our best.
We did it together.
They were my friends —
I hope they always will be.
