"You've come a long way Baby"
In the 1960s the early girl softball teams at
Turkey Valley wore slacks and a
sweatshirt for the team's uniform
The cover of the very first
Turkey Valley Yearbook in 1961

Note:  Although the district included St.
Lucas and Protivin in the early years few
students from the 2 towns attended since
they both still had catholic high schools.  
St. Lucas closed in 1967 and Protivin in
1968 making the 1968-69 school year the
first year with all high school students
going to the school in Jackson Jct.  
During that first "full" year, the first
expansion, including the multi-purpose
room, was going on making for an
extremely crowded school, especially
during the changing of classes.  Imagine a
school building slightly more than a third
of what it is today with nearly 4 times as
many students.  
That was Turkey Valley
during the 1968-69 school year.
Long time principal Ron Donn (above right) saw hundreds of but no
doubt among his proudest moments had to be when his own children
completed their days at the school.  He remains respected & friends
with most graduates through today (including this publisher)!
Hear Donn and others talk about the early years of the school
and how it all came together
