SENIORS - Class of '77 The Class of '77 entered McKinley in September of 1974, confused and unsure of themselves only to leave on June 5, 1977 with more confidence and experience. The first activity for this final year in high school was their class game. The 'Spirited Mighty Seniors' won the spirit stick at their pep rally and continued to display their spirit and enthusiasm at the game against the Kaimuki Bulldogs on October 15 at the Aloha Stadium. In the Homecoming Competitions the Class of '77 placed first (tying with the sophs) only to be disappointed by placing fourth with heir tapestry, 'Tiger Paws' which they had worked on for many days and nights. Many seniors attended their last Winter Prom 'Walk Close to Me' at the Ilikai Hotel's Bora Bora Room. The ordering of commencement goods in January told the seniors that graduation was not far away. Pictures and other mementos were selected. The Senior Luau 'Someday' turned out to be a fun-filled night at Sea Life Park on Saturday, March 26. Class week in May was filled with many different events which was highlighted by the Senior Prom, 'Do You Know...' on Friday, May 27, at the Princes Kaiulani's Ainahau Ballroom. On June 5, 1977 the seniors attended their last class activity - commencement. Dressed in the traditional cap and gown the Class of '77 held their ceremony on the front lawn of McKinley High School.
The Juniors got off to a fast start to begin their second year at McKinley. With all their officers and senate members elected and with new class advisers and council appointed, the Class of ‘78 was more than ready to get down to business and make the most of the year.
Mindful of this, the Junior Council and its advisers immediately took action by scheduling two workshops designed to make the year more eventful and meaningful for their classmates.
The sometimes frustrating, but nevertheless rewarding, workshops discussed everything from financial reports to the role of class councils in relation to McKinley High School.
Juniors promenade in spring setting of Ilikai Ballroom
In the spring setting of the Ilikai Hotel the Class of '78 attended their Junior Promenade "You and I." On the evening of April 29, the juniors gathered at the hotel's Pacific Ballroom to commemorate the closing of their school year.
Candlelit tables, the romantic music of "Serenity," peach and orange favors with the fragrance of lei in the air captivate the prom-goers' moods. A semiformal affair, the prom turned out to be truly a moment to remember.
Inexperienced in planning a major activity, the juniors encountered a few problems. But early planning and the patience of advisers were instrumental in overcoming these difficulties. Through hard work and diligence of the various sub-committees, the prom enjoyed success.
