Welcome Class of 1963


"Golden Sands of Time . . . "


Year in Review


The year we graduated ...

First students to graduate who attended Johnson High School all four years!

The 1963 graduating class was faced with the assassination of the US President Kennedy on November 22nd which thrust Lyndon Johnson into the role of President and the murder two days later of Lee Harvey Oswold by nightclub owner Jack Ruby. This was a difficult time to become President with the mounting troubles in Vietnam where the Viet Cong Guerrillas had now killed 80 American advisers and the continued campaign for Civil Rights by the Black community caused violent reactions from Whites, including Mississippi, Virginia and Alabama where the Black Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King Jr was arrested. Films included "The Birds" and "The Great Escape" and popular TV programs "The Virginian" and "Lassie". Ladies fashions and hairstyles included fir boots and towering hair do's for evening wear. In music the beginning of Beatlemania after they release "I Want To Hold Your Hand/I Saw Her Standing There" took the music world by storm.
