The Black and Gold 1975
For the most part, eager and willing to learn, the Class of 1977 entered into McKinley ready to take on "grown up" responsibilities.
Establishing a firm class executive and senate representation in October was the sophomore's first major responsibility. A dedicated committee guided the class in choosing a class image through nominations and voting in English classes.
Their next venture as daily workshops where sophs confusingly pieced together their float "Gobble da Govs" for Homecoming.
Twelve energetic and eye-catching sophomore pep squad members cheered along their mascot Woodstock as they witnessed a 20-0 win over Kalaheo in November a the Sophomore Class Game.
The sophs started off in to the new year with a "Slave Day" where a girl could command a boy to carry her books or serve her lunch; in return the boys had an opportunity to enslave a girl for a day.
Sophomore Class Day took place on March 14. After attending their play, sophs donned in class colors and were treated to candies as they entered the cafeteria for lunch. As an added attraction, they attended a rock concert in the afternoon.
That evening was the Sophomore Banquet, "Touch a Hand, Make a Friend," at the Hawaiian Regent Hotel.
