the Student Government. Elected as cheerleaders for the coming year were Johnny Barlow, Don Slaughter, and Eddie Tyson. This year, our first at Brown, was a year of achieve- ment and a year of responsibility, The year seemed 10 flv, and as we had entered the year a bit uncertain of our surroundings, we ended it confident that the year had proved us worthy of a place in the annalg of Brown High School. On returning in the fall of l957, we found ourselves becoming fond of the place, and as we settled down to our second year at Brown, we realized that we were well on our way across the sea of learning. ln this very busy junior year, our class was capably advised by Mr. Boone. We began the year's activities by holding a class meeting for the election of our officers The previous year had proved to us that we had many capable lead- ers in our class, and with this in mind, the class chose Ronnie Glosson as its president To serve under him and to assist him in his many duties were selected Eric McKnight, vice-president, Nancy Nelms, secretary, and Tommy Allen, treasurer. Along with these officers were our Council representatives, Shelia Argo and Don Cagle. All of these leaders as well as our student gov- ernment officers did much in aiding the class through government and service. As the year, progressed, our class protects were under- taken. Busily we sold magazines to finance the Jun- ior-Seniar, and rehearsed for the class play, "Tom Saw- yer", with Eric McKnight and Johnny Barlow taking the leading roles. The seniors honored us with "Soyo- nara", the Senior-Junior. As in our sophomore year, the achievements of many students were recognized with various honors. Tapped into the National Honor Society from our class were Barbara Chapman, Saundra Logan, Tobie Barbee, Cyn- thia Fletcher, Margie Harrington, Carol Scarboro, John Oehler, and Jack Hill. The Key Club accepted John Oehler, Tommy Barringer, Rudy Ware, and Jack Hill into its ranks. For their achievement in the field of dramatics and for participation in various plays, Tommy Allen, Johnny Barlow, Larry Freeman, Sandra Miller, Tommy Overcash, Alice Roberts, and Linda Stiller were tapped into the Thespian Society. As time passed, the Science Fair was held, and we were all kept busy planning the activities that were drawing near. Soon we received our class rings and dis- played them with pride as final plans for the Washing- ton trip were being made. Taking five buses, we left for Washington, and we returned after a fabulous week in our city of government: the never-to-be-forgotten Washington Trip l958. We found it a somewhat difficult task to settle down to the remaining weeks of school, but with time for exams nearing, we somehow managed. Under the su- pervision of Co-Chairmen Kaye Beaver and A. V. Frank- lin, plans were begun for the Junior-Senior. "Stairway to the Stars" was the theme selected, and with blue and white decorations adorning the social room, it be- came a star-studded event. With the year drawing to a close, Student Govern- ment elections were held. The student body chose Eddie Tyson as its president, and Don Cagle was chosen vice- president. We were all kept busy planning for the Western District of North Carolina Student Councils Congress for which our school was to be hast, and we were all proud when Don Cagle was elected president of the district. For their past contributions tothe school paper, Sallie Caudle and Becky Lee were selected Co-Editors of the Brown Highlights. We elected our cheer-leading squad with Johnny Barlow, chief, and other rising seniors Margie Harring- ton, Martha Rutledge, Nancy Nelms, Don Slaughter, and George Barrier, were selected. On the basis of scholastic achievement the com- mencement marshals were Barbara Chapman, Rita Noel, Sue Milburn, Jack Hill, Phyllis Brock, Doris Waller, Marlene Howard, Cynthia Fletcher, Johnny Gibson, Brenda Shaver, Eddie Tyson, Ray Blackwelder, and Carnl Scarboro. With a bit of sadness we looked on as the class of '58 was ushered out, and we realized that our time was not too far off. As we entered Brown for our last year we became aware of many things that we were seeing and doing for the last time. Upon our return we found many things different. The school was buzzing with work- men, hurrying to completion, the new wing, and we could see, across the way, the progress being made on the new W. J. Bullock Physical Education Building. For the last time we were united as a class, and with the help of Miss Gray, our advisor, we held our class elec- tions Eric McKnight was elected to serve as our presi- dent lhis final year, with Ronnie Glosson to serve as vice-president. Shelia Argo and Alan McKnight were chosen to hold the positions of secretary and treasurer, respectively. To complete our slate of officers for this busiest of years, we selected Beverly Maulden and Tom- my Allen, to be our representatives in the Council, Phyllis Austin, chaplain, Saundra Logan, social chair- man, and Jack Hill, historian. We selected gold and white as our class colors and the white orchid as the flower. For our motto we se- lected "The will to do, the courage to dare". We elec- ted our superlatives, and we chose, Kim Starnes and Barry Harkey for our mascots. ln the early part of the Year, the Key Club accepted Larry Freeman, Tommy Allen, and George Barrier for membership. From the beginning, the football games played an important role in the activities of many students, and this year seemed special, for the games were played in our new stadium. Leading our team to second place in the conference were our Co-Captains, Ronnie Hamp- ton, Ronnie Glosson, and Marvin Query. A victorious game set off Homecoming weekend, and the season climaxed in a l3-O victory over Concord, winning back for us the victory bell. Reigning over Homecoming festivities was Margie Harrington, and representing us in the Carrousel Parade in Charlotte was Phyllis Austin as Miss Brown High. On the basis of character, scholarship, leadership, and personality, Saundra Logan was elected "Miss Hi Miss". As time passed, others of our class were honored in various ways. The Honor Society, Key Club, Quill and Scroll, and Thespian Society accepted new members. The year sped by, and before we realized, plans had been made for the senior class play, "The Match-Mak- er", and the iuniors had honored us with the Junior- Senior. Then Senior Day had come and gone, and we realized that it was the last time our gaiety and frivoli- ty would be shared. From that day, a serious note sounded in our voices as we spake of graduation. ln pretended gaiety we at- tended rehearsals, Then as we attended the Baccalaur- eate Sermon, we realized what it was really all about. We relived our history on Class Night, then we walk- ed in cap and gown down the aisles graduation night to accept our long-awaited diplomas. We bade our classmates farewell, and we received the congratula- tions of parents and friends. Leaking back now, all these things become clear. We realize that these were our years, the three we spent at Brown. They prepared us for a life as useful citizens. Although the doors of high school have been closed, the doors of life stand open to us. We go our separate ways, but we shall remember these years. Jack Hill, Historian
