LIBRARY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA Virginia Hi School League n jrtr I ' k ■ . . K » ' , .•k S EDUCATION FOR LIVING AT ABINGDON HIGH SCHOOL ABINGDON, VIRGINIA 1960-1961 Home, Church, Community . . . these three plus educa- tion lay the foundatio n for every high school student. Prog- ress is made first in the home and church as families learn to get along with each other by sharing the same interests and beliefs. A broader step follows when young citizens partici- pate in community affairs as they work for the advancement of their town and state. The account of this inspiring story of " education for living " is proudly presented in The Beacon. XMl TO THE CITIZENS OF ABINGDON AREA to0 ' All 33 Everywhere today there is a growing demand for high performance. For the worker to do more in fewer hours ... for the student to learn more to become eligible for college ... for educators to continue their studies for master degrees and doctorates. Achievements accomplished through this demand have made new hori- zons in living with a new concept of standards and leisure. To meet and gracefully accept these new standards, a student in Abingdon High School becomes keenly aware that he is being groomed for this important art of " living. " Broader subjects, keener minds to teach them a revolutionary concept of co-curricular activities in- cluding community living, is preparing each student to take his place and contribute without doubt or bewilder- ments. Abingdon district, the town of Abingdon, and the high school are combining efforts to make sure that future citizens of this and surrounding communities will work and play well together and that, from all walks, people will excel and enjoy the art- -of living.

CLASSROOM WORK and ACADEMIC EVENTS are the environment in which these people grew. FOOTBALL HOMECOMING is a part of that growth . . . the crowds, the queens, the losses and the victories. To replace the graduates are bulging CLASSES of 8th graders. Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors. These, then, are Abingdonians . . . working together in an atmosphere of education, sports and modern living. A big part of modern living is COMMUNITY COMMERCE . . . doing a fine job of sup- plying our needs with goods and services. 4 To those who have read over and over again, the ills of the educational world, we ' d like to direct attention to a different type of story. There are no ailments affecting this community or this school. Abingdon is doing a tremendous job of teach- ing us to live together in the modern world. Education is living and education we get, but far more. We’re learning how to win and lose . . . how to love and respect. We’re learning that doing is almost as important as learning. We ' re teaching ourselves to enjoy now what we can enjoy later. We ' re working hard today because tomorrow the work i? no easier. We are proud of Abingdon’s academic program, of the scholastic standards we are setting in this state through a coordinated curriculum that teaches us how to live as well as learn. E. B.

A TEAM • COMMUNITY • SCHOOL • ADMINISTRATION Curtis L.

Ed. 4320 2700 2340 99 Our enrollment is the highest in the history of the school and it is still rising. The annual census is studied very closely each year by the board of education in order to project anticipated needs. The present building pro- gram is just part of the program to have adequate facilities and faculty available. The number of hours our faculty spend teaching us yearly are amazingly high when figured as a total. The basic " 3 R ' s " of yesterday are still being taught today but the curriculum has been broadened to build well rounded citizens. Because of the Spage Age in which we live enrollment in science and mathematics classes has increased. Vocational classes also continue to grow. By studying more, our faculty members can teach us more. We never stop learning. The Abingdon faculty has proved their tremendous interest in education for further knowledge. The educational program they engage in includes increased knowledge in vocation and avocation. 8 FRANK DOUGLAS ANDERSON BERTHA BERNICE BAUMGARDNER CHARLES EDWARD BLEVINS BETTY CARROLL BOWMAN HELEN ANN BAILEY PAMELA SHEFFIELD BARROW MARY ELLEN BLACKWELL MARY FRANCES BORDWINE CARMEN MELITA BERRY MARY JILL BLEVINS DONALD McClellan brannon JESSE JAMES BROWNING, JR.

When the books close, and the last bell rings. And carefree days are lost to mundane things- - When nostalgia strikes, and your memory wanes.

And remember the days so dear to you. 63 SENIOR SCIENCE CLUB FIRST ROW: Rosalie Vance, Valaria Flanagan, Connie Hill, Reporter; Richard Rollins, Sergeant-at-Arms; Margaret Potts, President; L. C.
