LYNCH Advisors Dedication III kl«Tl ll f. :; ' -;sffii Left to Right - Mr. Heard, Mr. McGrady, Mr. Brown, Miss Mayes, and Mr. Stephens. The annual staff graciously dedicates the 1969 edition of the Tiger to our coaches - Mr. Garfield Stephens, Athletic Director; Mr. Oscar Brown and Mr. Van Heard, boys ' basketball coaches; Miss Lillie Mayes, girls ' basketball coach; and Mr. Clyde McGrady, baseball coach. This is our opportunity to show our appreciation to our coaching staff for its great strides in victory as well as its humble acceptance of defeat; for its example of sportsmanlike conduct while in competition, and for its guidance and friendship which stirred in the athletes and student body of Staley High School the challenge to succeed in this tech- nological world. We hope that this dedication will reveal in some manner our thanks for the recogmtion and achievement our school has experienced as a result of the untiring efforts of our coaches. Dear Reader: " We came, we saw, we conquered. " These words may mean little to you, but they have great meaning and inspiration to every member of the class of 1969. We came to Staley High with a goal in mind. We were introduced to opportunities available for those who aspired for greater heights in life. We have reached our first goal - graduation from high school. Now we are ready to accept the challenges of higher goals. May we travel upon the sea of happiness, love and success and land at the shores where we are most needed in the service of mankind. A special thanks goes to the advisors and members of the yearbook staff who worked so diligently to make another Tiger a success. The torch is now passed to those of you who follow after us. We, the members of the 1969 yearbook staff, truly hope you will enjoy reading the 1969 Tiger. Mary Robinson The 1969 Tiger Staff FACULTY SPONSORS: Mrs. E. M. Daniels and Mrs. M. R.
