A new group, Otters Anonymous, was formed this year to let boys cheer at athletic events, a boys’ version of Pep Club. They sponsored a faculty basketball game with the KQWB All-Americans to help raise funds to purchase maroon blazers for athletes on game day events.

The 1967 Ski Team was the only school in region 6 to field a team. Members included Marty Gervais, Doug Stigen, Jim Shaver, Dave Dornholt, Gerg Vraspir, Steve Horton and coach Mr. Ralston Koepsell.

This year’s sophomore class was the largest ever to come over from the junior high. This expansion in students called for an expansion in teachers. So new teachers were hired which meant more room was needed so the vocational wing was approved by the community. The only hitch in completing the project was when a certain group of workers went on strike, which caused a delay in getting materials. The building wasn’t completed in time for the fall quarter. Some new classes offered in the new building included Basic Drawing, General Metals I, Girls Shop, Architectural Drawing, Machine Shop and Welding, Salesmanship and Radio and Electronics.
