Editors ham it up during layout session 



On October 27, 1965, the organizational meeting for the first Rock Valley College newspaper was held at the 
Naval Reserve Center. At this time prospective staff members met the faculty advisor, Phillip McGhee, and publisher 
of Post Publishers, Mr. William Styles. 

The next few weeks proved the capability of the new staff as Rock Valley published its first newspaper on Novem- 
ber 10, 1965. Under temporary editors and staff members. The ????, became a part of Rock Valley's history. 

Through a contest put before the student body and won by John Gile, the newspaper was named THE VALLEY 
FORGE. 

The second issue established a permanent editorial staff appointed by the faculty advisor. Those appointed were: 
Dennis Larson, Editor-in-chief; Richard Fitzgerald, Managing Editor; Jim Reidel, Advertising Manager Linda Dobbs, 
News Editor; Lynda Donaldson, Feature Editor; and Don Bryant, Sports Editor. 

THE VALLEY FORGE became a bi-monthly newspaper and was to be published from September to June, except 
during examination and vacation periods. 

THE VALLEY FORGE'S thirteen issues proved to the Winnebago- Boone counties that the establishment of Rock 
Valley and its newspaper was truly worthwhile. THE VALLEY FORGE was established to give a better means of com- 
munication between the students, faculty, administration, and citizens of the two-county area.

The Rock Valley College insignia syrtibolizes the college and the com 
munity in mutual effort promoting personal growth, industrial develop 
ment, and community progress. 





26 



John Ruskin identified the true 
purpose of education in these words: 
The entire objection of true 
education is to make peo- 
ple not merely do the right 
thing, but to love industry; 
not merely learned, but to 
love knowledge; not mere- 
ly pure, but to love purity; 
not merely just, but to hun- 
ger and thirst after justice. 
Surely Rock Valley College stu- 
dents and faculty have proven that 
these goals can motivate dedicated 
people, even in a divided campus 
home. These charter members have 
already established a tradition of 
scholarly teaching and learning, har- 
mony in personal relationships, and 
compassion and service for others. 
Let us mark the end of our first 
year by joy and thanksgiving. Rock 
VaUey College has a sound beginning 
and a very bright future. Support of 
the electorate has assured us a new 
and comfortable home where we will 
pursue even more effectively our in- 
dividual and collective educational 
purposes. 

Let us rededicate ourselves to 
education for creative lives of serv- 
ice, for vocation and avocation and, 
with Ruskin, for purity and justice.

Dean 
of Instruction 



As Dean of Instruction, Mr. Etheredge is supervis- 
or of all the curricula offered at Rock Valley and 
handles the hiring of the Faculty members. The ex- 
cellent curricula and dedicated faculty that can be 
found at Rock Valley are a tribute to the capabilities 
of Dean Etheredge. 

Dean Etheredge received his B.S. degree in geo- 
logy at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and his M.S. 
degree at the University of Illinois. He has com- 
pleted all required courses for his Ph.D. degree in 
geology at Northwestern University and is now a can- 
didate for a doctorate at Loyola University. 




MR. FORREST D. ETHEREDGE 




DR. RONALD W. HALLSTROM 



Dean of Vocational- 
Technical Education 



Serving first as Business Manager and Chairman 
of the Business Division, Dr. Hallstrom was then pro- 
moted to Dean of Vocational-Technical Education. 
As the title indicates, his job is to coordinate spe- 
cial two-year programs leading to employment or ad- 
vancement for those already employed. Nursing, 
data processing, secretarial, and retail marketing 
are only a few of many such programs. 

Dr. Hallstrom received his B.S. , M.S., and Ed. 
D. degrees at Northern Illinois University. 



28 



Dean of 
Students 



One of the greatest assets to the students and to 
RVC as a whole is our Dean of Students, Dr. J. B. 
Munson. Holding one of the more trying jobs at the 
college, Dr. Munson handles it well with his excel- 
lent and varied background in education and student 
personnel services. 

Some of his duties include counseling and guid- 
ing students, advising the Student Commission and 
student organizations, directing orientation, pro- 
grams, directing probation and dismissal committees, 
and overseeing social events at the student center. 

Dr. Munson, highly respected by both faculty 
and students, obtained his B.A. at Morningside Col- 
lege, and his M.A, and Ph.D. at Michigan State 
University .

Basketball 



THE ROCK VALLEY TROJANS--FROM LOWER LEFT: Chuck Whitman, John Politic, Mike Livingston, and Don Wood- 
ard. SECOND ROW: Coach Rease Dinger, Dave Martin, Paul Cicero, Lance Elfstrom, Larry Franzen. BACK ROW: 
Don Rosene, Tom Gibbons, and Tom Marinelli. 



The Rock Valley Trojan's first basketball squad did not compete on the intercollegiate level this season, but in- 
stead participated in the Rockford Park District Men's Basketball League. The Trojans faced many experienced play- 
ers, some of whom were former college stars or former Rockford area high school stars. At the end of the season our 
team could look back to thrillers, upsets, and a very honorable 9 and 9 record. 

Mr. Rease Binger, a former coach of the Rockford school system, was hired by our athletic advisor, Mr. J. Har- 
old Swanson to coach our first basketball squad. It was hoped that this team would lay the groundwork for future bas- 
ketball teams at Rock Valley. At the same time, Mr. Swanson applied for and received acceptance to the Northern 
Illinois Junior College Conference. Plans for a large and versatile field house were completed early this spring. 
With all this happening during our first year, the future of athletics at Rock Valley seems very bright and promising.

The first Student Commission of Rock Valley was appointed by Dr. J. B. Munson, Dean of Students. He 
selected the members on the basis of recommendations made by their respective high school counselors; per- 
sonal contact with them during registration; and recommendations from previously selected members. In 
this way he was attempting to have each high school in the Winnebago-Boone County area and other groups 
(such as students who have been out of high school a few years and those who have attended other colleges) 
represented on the Commission. It was essential to organize a Student Commission on a temporary basis as 
soon as possible to develop a constitution for a student association for Rock Valley College and to provide 
elections for a permanent representative commission form of government for the students. 

These two purposes and many others were handled expertly by the temporary commission. With this 
background, the student body of Rock Valley College can look forward to a good student government in future 
years.
