High School Rocket

I went to Neenah High School and never knew that the rocket was real. My daughter (in the pic) now knows otherwise.

Neenah is a town where you could have grown up in the shadow of the Cold War and not even realized it. Team spirit ballistics continue to be provided by a real 1960s "Honest John" missile jauntily angled on the high school lawn.
