Cape Central High Photos

Ken Steinhoff, Cape Girardeau Central High School Class of 1965, was a photographer for The Tiger and The Girardot, and was on the staff of The Capaha Arrow and The Sagamore at Southeast Missouri State University. He worked as a photographer / reporter (among other things) at The Jackson Pioneer and The Southeast Missourian.

Come here to see photos and read stories (mostly true) about coming of age in Southeast Missouri in the 1960s.

Please comment on the articles when you see I have left out a bit of history, forgotten a name or when your memory of a circumstance conflicts with mine. (My mother says her stories have improved now that more and more of the folks who could contradict her have died off.) Your information helps to make this a wonderful archive and may end up in book form.

Those Are SOME Cheerleaders

Male cheerleaders at CentralI’ve shot scads of cheerleaders at high school, college and pro games. Every organization must have used different qualifications. Some girls were picked for looks; some for popularity; other for spirit; others for athletic or dancing ability; others must have been daughters of community movers and shakers. This group must have been selected for having the hairiest legs. (Click on the photo to make it larger, if you dare.)

It was taken at Central High School, but I don’t know what the event was. I see people from the classes of 1964 and 65, for sure.

Better looking cheerleaders

If you need to wash your eyes out after looking at that photo, here’s a selection of other cheerleader photos and stories.’

    I see Sherrie Pind waving and this must be…

  • Andy Pemberton '66

    That’s the annual student-teacher basketball game. I was a cheerleader for the class of ’66 version of the game. This must be the class of ’65 version. They started the annual event. It was a very successful class fund raiser. The bleachers are packed.

    The criteria for selection in this case was: football player who was not good enough to play in the basketball game.
