In a building that is 63 years old, some updates and evolution towards modernization is expected. In diving through old annuals, we have discovered that some parts of CHS’s campus have greatly modernized over the years, but other scenes from certain photographs could be re-created perfectly. Though fashion, hair, textbooks and old chalkboards have gone through transitions, some things never change. We wanted to see what photos we could share with CHS ’73.
- Richard Nixon was president
- Gas was priced at .39 cents per gallon
- Elton John was number one on Billboard top ten
- The U.S. suspended all activity over Vietnam
- A stamp was eight cents
- the Song of the Year was ‘Killing Me Softly With His Song’
There will be fewer schools around with as rich of history as CHS. As the oldest high school campus in Cherokee County, there is a unique connections students can have with those who have walked these same paths as those our parents’ and grandparents’ age.
