FJC held informal frog jumping contests, but on May 15, 1962, over 1,000 students packed the gymnasium for the First Annual Junior College Frog Jumping Contest. Students donned jungle helmets and carried flags to cheer their favorites on to victory. Each frog was allowed three jumps. The winner was Taylakey, a Hornet Knights’ sponsored entry, who jumped 6 feet, 9 inches to victory. The winner in May 1965 was Priscilla Van Horn (kneeling).
