WSHS in the 1960s

The 1960s are famous for being the height of cultural upheaval, societal change, and global anxiety. The hippie and counter-cultural movements were emerging in full force, the Vietnam War and the Cuban Crises were unfolding, and America was rushing to the finish line in the Space Race. As their high school was just opening and they settled in for the next stage of their lives, the students of WSHS found a new home and community as both they, and their school, came of age.
