The Green and the Gold                                        

There are days in our memory we love and revere

There are days we remember with joy and with tears

In visions unnumbered, and pleasures untold,

We love thy dear colors, the GREEN and the GOLD.                                         

When all through the future where'er we may go,

We dream of the days of the GREEN and the GOLD

Inspired with the love in our hearts we shall know

How to love thee, to serve thee, the GREEN and the GOLD.

Viking Reunions

Click the logo on the left to go to the past KHS class-reunion photo page. 
Below, you'll be able to watch a short film on KHS shot during the winter of 1966-67.  It was produced by KFSN-TV as part of their look at the community of Kingsburg.  Insight into the school and its history is provided by then-Superintendent Grant Erickson.  Thanks to Julie Stone Olson (KHS '74) for providing this priceless artifact of Viking history.

  Here are two tunes that explore the uniqueness of "The Kingsburg Experience."  The first is by former KHS track star and member of the New Christy Minstrels, Clarence Treat.  The second is by Jeff Anderson (KHS '67), bassist for the iconic 60s band, The Sedate Sunshine Colony.
