the Cocoa High School Class of 1965 website


Welcome

This website is a complete historical record of the Cocoa High School Class of 1965 from the early 1960s right up to the present day. Since the majority of the Cocoa Beach High School Class of 1965 attended Cocoa High School for their sophomore and junior years, they are included in this website. For those individuals who are not members of the class Facebook group it also serves as a communication link for upcoming class functions. If this is your first visit to this site or if it has been a while since your last visit then please update your contact information.

 Often imitated but never duplicated, the Class of 65 was truly best alive!

Cocoa High School Class of 1965 Facebook Group
While this website is updated periodically during the year our class facebook group is dynamic and constantly updating. We currently have 272 members in our group which also includes some classmates from other adjacent classes and high schools. The class facebook group is the best way to keep up with classmates on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Please consider joining this group. If you are not a facebook member it will only take a few minutes to join and it is free.

Discovery American Heroes Channel and 43films

43Films has contacted us for assistance is preparing a documentary for Discovery's American Heroes Channel. "It will focus on the wonderment, hope, imagination and ingenuity of the early space program from the early rocketry days through the Apollo missions. We were in Florida recently interviewing engineers from the early rocketry days ABMA and NASA. Our director is looking for home video and photos of the early days of the Space Coast. We have footage from NASA etc but the director wants to tie in images from those who lived and grew up with the Space Program. We are looking for people who grew up on the Space Coast - watching the missile launches with friends or family, possibly pictures from school when released to watch the missle launches and other activities including photos of the town in the late 50's through the late 60's - family/friends as the Space Coast grew and the area changed -- Titusville to Melbourne".

This will be a seven hour production aired on the Discovery American Hero Channel. If you have any home movies, photos or stories to tell about the early days of the space program please send them to the below address. They seem to be keenly interested in the fire drills that were held at all the local schools to allow the students a chance to witness the missile shot.

Class member assistance is greatly appreciated.

The line producer and story researcher for this production is Shelley Steagall - email address:  txsteagall43films@gmail.com

The production company is 43films - website: 43films.com (additional contact information is provided here)

The 50th Combined Cocoa High School and Cocoa Beach High School Class of 65 Reunion was a great success and will be remembered as one of the great reunions. 190 classmates and their guests attended this reunion, which in some aspects stretched out for almost two weeks.

Photo of the Week/Month/Year

      

Bill McKnight and Tom Zimmerman at a local tea party hosted by Rebecca Corbit to honor Johnny Waits. If you don't believe that then maybe you wou would believe this - Tom and Bill are helping Johnny remodel a condo he recently bought in Rockledge. Rebecca had to host the party under a tree out back so that the boys would not be visible to the general public.
