Jerstad-Agerholm Junior High School
7th Grade – 1969
Leaving my childhood and Roosevelt Elementary School behind, I moved forward to the bright promise of near-adulthood by entering Jerstad- Agerholm Junior High. This is my 7th Grade school photo.
The picture does not begin to do justice to the shirt. It was a one-piece, short-sleeved pullover that I have since learned would be described as a “trompe l’oeil turtleneck.” The body of the shirt was avocado green. I am fairly certain that no natural fibers were sacrificed in its manufacture. I thought it was very ‘Star Trek’. I wasn’t wrong.
As was true for all of my Junior High years, the haircut was by Tupperware.
