As the '70s roared into time, the class of 1972 recognized an era of change. It was this theme that Leslie Nardone, editor of the Grandview Heights High School yearbook, chose for the 1972 'Highlander.' "There's a transformation happening and it's going on all around us. We call this transformation 'change'." New ideas promoting change took place in the high school organizations and in the Student Council. A new adviser, Mr. Horr, helped the Limelighters present various productions. There were future teachers to come from this class as well as future secretaries. The Swing Choir -- with girls wearing body shirts, hot pants and white boots -- created new introductions for each popular song. Mr. Weaver and his Grandview Singers hosted the first jazz workshop in the high school. The 1972 GHHS sports teams captured their share of awards, with Jack Low bringing home the first state championship in wrestling and Mike Lang being the district heavyweight champion. The Grandview netmen won second place in the first year of Mid-8 tennis and the Bobcats were sectional champs in baseball.
