Very early in the life of the new school, the need for some form of student government
became apparent. As time went by, and the students faced, or sometimes created new
"prob1ems", the widening gap between the student body and administration was evident.
Someone implanted the idea of government and self discipline among the students. Soon,
several leaders emerged, and Tech's embryo student governing body was formed. This
interim committee composed of Ed Boyer, Lane Craig, Sam Guzman, Jimmy Layman,
and Guy Sparks, was elected and empowered by the student body to act as a study group
to determine the best type of government suitable for the group. Soon, with the very
capable suggestions of Colonel Thomas I. Edgar, faculty advisor, the committee com-
pleted the study and presented its conclusions and a finished constitution to the student
body for consideration. Shortly afterwards, the document was ratified unanimously at a
special assembly of the student body.
The acting committee immediately set about conducting an election to determine the
officers of the newly formed government as called for by the constitution.
ln an interesting, well disciplined election, attended by the entire studentbody,the
following students were chosen as officers of the STUDENT COUNCIL, the governing
committee of the student body: Samuel M. Guzman, President, Jimmy N. Layman, Vice
President, Barry Brown, Secretary, and Darryl Dellis, Treasurer.
At one of its first organizational
meetings, the Student Council con-
c e iv e d an d formed a working
model of an Honor System. A
special committee was appointed
to insure its operation.

The yearbook staff, however, has spent many long hours of extremely satisfying work
in an attempt to present to the student body a complete pictorial and written coverage
commensurate with the size of the book and available information, of the events and per
sonalities that made up the 1962 - 1963 school year.
