I remember listening to the Minnesota Twins play in the 1965 World Series on teachers radios in every class. Sooo coool
I remeber hearing of President Kennedy's assaination over the school loudspeaker while in Mrs. Nethercott's class. Mrs Nethercott, a very stoic teacher passionate about her teachings, cried. I realized the gravity of the situation through her tears.
I remember the cafiteria ceiling coming down. The Duluth News Tribune came to take pictures of us eating lunch on makeshift tables in the hallways. And there I was, I was on the front page.
I remember students wearing hard hats in protest of the poor conditions of Central and getting punished. Then the Beatles and more rules about hair and not wearing belts to which students cut belt loops off their jeans. More punishment. WE LEARNED THE POWER OF THE PEOPLE.
