A Person to Person

The Black and Gold 1975

The Black and Gold 1975

Like a fresh flower sprung from the morning dew--McKinleyites began the fall semester anew, involved in worlds of their own or sharing other's worlds. Each constantly expressed his views and opinions of an ever changing world, through the working, studying and playing facets of life.
Music provided the means for students who felt that was the best way to express their feelings and to relax from the pressures of McKinley and the rest of the world. It was not uncommon to see informal groups lingering in or out of the buildings making their own music of listening to it on pocket radios.

Beauty being in the eyes of the beholder, made itself clear as students employed their talents and interests in the artistic field. They explored various modes of art such as painting, weaving and ceramics. Appreciation of artistic works ranged from the sell out of the many hued, original football ribbons sold at the beginning of the year to the crowded art classes offered to students.

While prospects of life fleeted by, many formed new friendships through each of the three years spent at McKinley. In discovering new people, friendships and acquaintances of yesteryear were sometimes lost. And as the people of McKinley High School evolved throughout these years, they found that the consequences of what they did invariably affected others, as they interrelated with each other as one person to another.
