Lone Oak High School
Class of 1973 Collection

About This Site

The Class of 1973 returned in the fall of 72 to begin their last school year at LOHS amidst construction and classes scattered among two campuses and five buildings. None-the-less, 210 seniors made it through the year with flying colors... purple and gold that is, and achieved some outstanding honors along the way.

Construction and renovation from the previous winter's fire had continued in the summer and a new building along with a new insides for the older building was beginning to take shape. The interior of the original 1927 main two story building was being renovated while the west end section that was once the high ceiling gymnasium was destroyed in the fire, was demolished and being replaced with a more modern building. All in all, it made for quite a mess as is shown in several pictures in the yearbook and others graciously provided by David LeDoux '72. A link to David's collection of renovation pictures is provided in the menu. Class schedules and construction details can also be found in the collection of Oak-Ks for this year.

The Class of 73 welcomed a new principal for their senior year; Bernie Behrendt. Glenn Dexter, who begin his career at LOHS in the early 60s as coach, served as Assistant Principal under John Robinson and then as principal from 1968 to 1972, retired. Wallace Adams continued as Assistant Principal.

We hope you enjoy the collection for 1973 and if you have addition information that is applicable to the Class of 73, please e-mail the site Webmaster. Please provide contact information so that we may reply.
