The 1964 Grandview Heights High School yearbook captured the guiding principles of the school "to develop in each pupil the realization that major objectives in life are to attain happiness and to be a useful citizen."

A total of 126 seniors received diplomas at graduation June 9, 1964, with the best wishes of Superintendent Robert Timmons, Principal Ralph Beery and a dedicated staff of teachers.

Mary Guggenaster reined as homecoming queen with her court as "Jewels of 64" while football fans cheered with delight as the victory flag was raised.

Committee members are Judy Cooper, Lloyd Gill, Nancy Shaefffer, Cheryl Hughes, Sharon Ott, Cecillia Wheeler, Karen Engdall, Ann Steele and Marianne Prosser. The class is celebrating its 50th reunion this year.
