"Ending dreams, beginning reality." Our dreams began when we as freshmen began the school year of 1954-1955 at Cannon junior High School that September moming as t.he leaders of the school. In our first year in high school, our class was well-represented in Student Govemment by R. W. Williams serving as President and Larry Neal as Vice-President. Council members from our class were Phyllis Nelms, Judy Goodman, and Don Honeycutt. Our Christmas Queen that year was lean Avant, who was also Queen of the "Fairyland" dance sponsored by the Student Government. Gaining recognition was Linda Io Sloop, as the spelling champion of the school, and Louise Cashion, lean Avant, Linda McKnight, Gail Ross, Kerry Maulden, Gary Carlton, and Jimmy Price, as the top salesmen of the magazine cam- paign held that spring. This year sped by quickly. We did not want to leave Cannon, but at the same time we were eager to go to Brown. It seemed a little strange to be on the bottom after being on top at Cannon, but we quickly adjusted to the juniors and seniors, and to the school building. We held dreams of the future and of all the fun we would have. Our sophomore class adviser was Mr. Rawls. Larry Neal was our capable Presi- dent. Assisting him were Vice-Presi- dent R. W. Williams, Secretary Ierry Darnell, and Treasurer Kerry Maulden. Representing our class on the Student Council were lane VVilson and Don Honey- cutt. To raise money for our class activities, we had a candy sale. The top sales- men were Donnie Liven- good, Roy Eddleman, Harold. Beers, Barbara johnson, and 'K A Frances McCommons. Five members of our class were greatly honored by being tapped into the National Honor Society. They were lane Wilson, Larry Neal, Richard Sellers, R. W. Williams and jerry Darnell. The Key Club received Don Goodnight, Larry Neal, R. W. Williams and Ierry Damell into their ranks that year. In the Student Govemment elections, rising juniors Larry Neal and R. W. VVilliams were chosen to fill the offices of Secretary and Treasurer, respectively. Elected as cheerleaders were Larry Cauble and Glenna Goodson. We moved another step up the ladder leading to our goal of graduation. This dream was always in our minds. As juniors we looked forward to the promises of the future. Advising us as juniors was Mr. Boone. Elected to lead our class were Ierry Darnell as President, Kerry Maulden as Vice- President, Iudy Goodman as Secretary, and Alex Viola as Treasurer. Iane Wilson and Don Honeycutt were our Council representatives. We started the year off right with a magazine saleg George Noel was the top salesman. Then we successfully undertook the junior class play, "You Can't Take It With You." As the year blossomed into spring, honors came to members of our class in the fonn of being tapped into the various clubs. Tapped into the National Honor Society on the basis of character, scholarship, leadership, and service were Frances McCommons, George Noel, Judy Goodman, Linda Io Sloop, Carole Harrington, Kerry Maulden, and Clarence Horton. Taken into the Key Club, were Kerry Maulden, Alex Viola, jerry Moss, George Noel, Clarence Horton, and Don Honey- cutt. The Quill and Scroll inducted Carole Harrington, Clar- ence Horton, Kaye Boyd and Saundra Ivey for their journal- istic work, For their accomplishments in dramatics, the Na- tional Thespian Society tapped lean Avant, Nancy Koontz, R. W. Williams, Becky I-Iodgens, Alex Viola, Iimmy Beck, and Linda McKnight. This was the year that we received our long-desired class rings and that wonderful Washington trip! How we looked forward to it and how we enjoyed every splendid moment! Those joyous, exciting times will always remain in our mem- ones. Next on our agenda was the junior-Senior. The Co-Chain men, Carole Harrington and Ettie Ruth Hastings, directed the preparations for this dance with the theme of "Deep Purple." It was another dream fulfilled. As another year drew to a close, officers for the following year were elected. Larry Neal was elected Student Govemment President and R. W. Williams as Vice-President. Clarence Horton and Saundra Ivey were selected the editors of the Brown Highlights and the ALBROKAN. Voted to stimulate our school spirit were our Cheerleaders, Larry Cauble, Chief, Glenna Goodsong Ettie Ruth Hastings, and Brenda Beaver. Helping the seniors to graduate were the Commencement Marshals: Chief, Linda Io Sloopg George Noel, jane Wilsong Kerry Maulden, Larry Nealg Clarence Hortonp Norma Sloop: Doris McDonald, Richard Sellers, Carole Harrington, R. W. VVilliamsg Duane Childersg and Carol Taylor. Ours was the first class to have so many male Marshals. VVe realized that this coming year was to be our last in high school: that we were doing many things for the last timeg that soon the time was coming when we would no longer be A. L. Brown High School students, but alumni. We re solved to work harder this year to make up for those times when we might have been a little lax. This year was to be our greatest yet, as we took our places as dignified, sophisticated seniors. Guiding us through our last year was Miss Gray. Our officers worked hard to make ours the best class ever. Kerry Maulden served as President, Richard S e l l e r s as Vice-President, Donaline Jordan as Secre- tary, Barry Bostian as Treas- urer, Allen Wilson as Chap- lain, Carole Harrington as Social Chairman, Jane Wilson and Don Honeycutt as our Council members for the third year, and Linda Io Sloop as His- torian. We chose as our class motto "Ending dreams: beginning reality." Our colors were red and silver, with a red rose as our flower. We picked two redheads for our mas- cots, Nancy Falls and Johnny Cauble. The Key Club took in Rodney Armstrong, Richard Sellers, and Allen Wilson, who transferred from LaGrange, Georgia, where he was Vice-President. Donaline Iordan represented our school in the Carrousel Parade in Charlotte. She won in the local parade and was crowned "Miss Merry Christmas." Brenda Beaver reigned over the Homecoming festivities. The senior class unanimously elected jane Wilson "Miss High Miss," an honor based on character, scholarship, leadership, and personality. Sports played an important role in our school life. The Co- Captains of the football team were Larry Neal, jerry Moss, and Don Goodnight. The Lug Leazer award was presented to Don Goodnight. Louise Cashion and La Vaughn Rodgers won first and second places, respectively, in the Student Government chocolate sale. VVe all helped with this fund to raise money for a new juke box and scholarships. As the year progressed, the National Honor Society, the Key Club, the National Thespian Society, and the Quill and Scroll accepted new members. The last half of our senior year was filled with the Senior- Iunior, the senior class play, the junior-Senior, Senior Day, choosing the class' gift, the many class meetings, rehearsals, the baccalaureate sermon, class night, and of course, to top it all, graduation. We had many dreams as we entered high school. Amid laughter and tears, they were either fulfilled or shattered. Perhaps a dream of accomplishment was satisfied, or perhaps not. Now at graduation, we know that to achieve anything worthwhile, dreams must be coupled with work. We leave behind our high school days to go forth into new ways of lifeg we are "ending dreams: beginning reality." Lrrma Jo Stoor, Historian
