Rockdale,TX Class of 1965
Yearbook of the Rockdale, TX RHS Class of 1965
The year 1958-1959 has come to an end as a school year. To many of us, there are memories of the past four years. To others there are memories of twelve years spent together. The years ahead hold the promise of our future. Advance! I say, Advance!
The time spent in Rockdale Schools, in studying, going to classes, partying after the games, talking with our classmates...all these are things that none of us want to forget.
In order that we may remember these, the LAIR Staff has tried to collect and preserve in Volume XVI many memories we do not want time to obliterate.
Board of Education 1958-1959
The 1959 Lair is dedicated to the most worthy lady in the Rockdale Public Schools. Through her everyday activities she has won the respect and admiration of everyone. She is never too busy to stop and lend a helping hand.
The Rockdale Faculty and students will remember this lady as an efficient and integral part of our schools. She has been a part of the past and will continue to be a part of the future of Rockdale Schools.
She is the most conscientious secretary a superintendent ever had. It is an honor to try to write this dedication to Mrs Louise Joiner.

May I wish you, my first four-year graduating class in Rockdale, God's speed as you leave us this year. You represent a fine group of young people who have been straight-thinking and cooperative throughout the past four years. I hope that you will continue to be discriminating and selective in the years ahead and that you will join hands wit your Creator and strive for the highest this world has to afford.
May I leave you with this parting thought: "You don't have to tell how you live each day. You don't have to say if you work or you play. A tried, true barometer serves in the place. However you live it shows in your face."

Mrs Louise Joiner,
Mrs Sadie Butts, Bookkeeper
In Rockdale High School I have encountered a student body that is capable of attaining almost any goal which it may set for itself. I only hope you have learned as much from me as I have learned from you, and that I have made as favorable an impression on you as you have on me.
May you continue to increase in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.

and his office group
We are proud of our new $800,000 high school building , completed in 1955-56. It is composed of the administrative wing, music hall, gymnasium, auditorium, science laboratories, shop, and classrooms. There are miles of hall to travel , and many offices to visit.
By day, it is the center of learning; by night, the year around, other educational activities are carried on.
Our Faithful Maintenance Men
Whatever needs to be repaired, Mr Harry Fischer tries to repair it.
The buildings and grounds are kept in tip-top shape by Mr Terry McLeod and Mr Fischer
