1961 This was the beginning of a new era, a new decade, a new presidential administration, all needing transition from the old to the new. This was also a year of transition at Ames High. In the future, Ames high Students will be spending their three years of high school in new and modern units, which will replace the familiar halls of the old Ames high building.
The Class of 1961 experienced transition from the old to the new. New honors were started and new traditions set during this transitional period. We have had the precedents of the past to look back on, and the challenge of the new to inspire us.
As fall approached, Ames High students looked forward to the coming school year with more than just the usual apprehension. The prospective picture showed something new. Along with the new building, there was to be the experience of a half day in the old school and a half day in the new, and a shuttle bus trip between the two, this was transition at Ames High in 1961.
