1971-72 student assistants were: Barb Boozell, Christina Morrison, Debbie Dodd, Rhonda Holsinger, Deanne Partridge, Carmon Clark, Angela Fronsdahl, Faculty advisor Mrs. Moore. For 1973-74: Delores Klemme, Christina Morrison, Ruth Baker, Deanne Partridge, Ken Parham, Verle Lint.

April 1969 Collins was reinstated as approved school to be eligible for State aid. Still to be resolved for future years was the employment of a "trained librarian." Collins and Maxwell Schools jointly employed a trained librarian within two years to comply with State regulations.

Joanie and Scott Reece of LaVista, Ne were back for the week-end and enjoyed a get together with friends in Maxwell at the home of Debbie Appelgate and Diana(Toots)Holst.
