Celebrating 100 Years of Oakland Technical High School
Kerwin Lee ’65
“Since the Class of 65 was special, 50th anniversary class, we thought of ourselves as a unique bunch. It was a time when things were changing, from civil rights to the war in Vietnam. While in school we witnessed the cold ward, civil rights march and protests on Vietnam. JFK was assassinated while we were at Tech. Our football team was bad, but we won the Kyles Trophy for spirit one year we were there (I think 63 or 64). I was in the marching band, symphonic band, ROTC Band (which kept me out of PE), dance band, pep band and Orchestra. I guess music was my focus/interest.
The school system was a lot different then, as was life. ”
