John F. Kennedy High School (1967) Yearbook Music Pictures

Hey all! I recently obtained a HUGE box of Colorado yearbooks. Incredible cache, I'm very excited to have saved these from a potential end, in the trash. It's been a lot of fun going through the photos, and finding music-related pictures. Incredible time capsule of bands and singers. Probably some pictures never before seen!

I'll be going through all of the yearbooks, and making this a semi-regular feature on here. Enjoy!

When John F. Kennedy opened, in the spring semester of the 1965 - 1966 school year, it served both grades 7 - 9 and grades 10-12. There was no junior high school in the area, so the new school was designed to accommodate both junior and senior high school students.  The 1967 annual notes that it is Volume 1, which implies this was the first yearbook for the school.
