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.
