Throwback Thursday: Dancing in 1978

As NHS prepares to host a winter formal, we go back nearly 40 years to look at the Morp dance from “Changes,” the 1978 yearbook.

Morp, which is “prom” spelled backwards, subverted traditional gender rules by requiring girls to ask out dates and take the boys to dinner.

Hosted by the Kayettes, the dance featured a DJ instead of a live band — apparently a novelty at the time. “I thought the music at morp was a lot easier to dance to because we had hear all of the songs before,” freshmen Sherri Kraus said.

The 1978 Editor in Chief was Lori Daniel. The yearbook was advised by Pam Johnston.
