V w SnapshotsLAYOUT EDITOR Cathie Kramer Ada High School Ada, Ohio Geneva MotterOur Footsteps Through Ada High School 73 2IN APPRECIATION "Ask Maxine!" This phrase is heard many times a day at Ada High School as Mrs. McBride - or Maxine, as she is more commonly called - performs her varied duties. She manages the office; keeps financial records of all school activities; types and mimeographs schedules, programs other sundry items; answers queries from faculty, students, parents, and visitors; and serves as secretary to Mr. Lucas, Mr. Younkman, and the Board of Education. However, regardless of circumstances, Maxine never shows exasperation nor gives a sharp retort, but she is always there with a courteous answer and a helping hand. Mrs. McBride is not an "all work and no play" person. For relaxation she enjoys reading philosophy, bowling, swimming, playing tennis, and listening to her hi-fi records with her husband, Howard. With deep appreciation the annual staff proudly dedicates the 1961 WE to MRS. MAXINE DERINGER McBRIDE Mrs. Maxine McBride SUPERINTENDENT ROBERT G. LUCAS B. S. , M. S. Our new superintendent is a graduate of Bellefontaine High School and holds a Bachelor of Science Degree from Bowling Green State University and a Master of Science Degree from Indiana University. Before entering the field of education, Mr. Lucas spent time in the Navy, where as Lt. (senior grade) Lucas he commanded PC and PCE type vessels. In 1946 he joined the faculty of Wiltshire High School where he taught mathematics and physical education for four years, was principal for three years, and served as executive head for three years. From Wiltshire Mr. Lucas moved to Leipsic as superintendent for four years. In August I960 Mr. and Mrs. Lucas moved to Ada where Mr. Lucas assumed the duties of superintendent of the Ada school system. Mr. Lucas is a member of the Kiwanis Club and the Masonic Lodge, and in his spare time he enjoys hunting, fishing, and golfing. We welcome Superintendent Lucas to Ada High School and sincerely hope that his stay will be a long and pleasant one. 4The Board of Education, elected by and responsible directly to the people, is the final educational authority for the Ada Exempted Village. Members of the Board are Mr. Robert Chandler, Mr. Everett Ludwig, Superintendent Robert G. Lucas, PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD Dr. E. R. Rodabaugh, VICE PRESIDENT Richard Fulks, Mr. Charles Hubbell, CLERK-TREASURER R. B. Cretors(absent) Parent - Teacher Association The purpose of the Parent-Teacher Association is to promote the welfare of children and youth in the home, school, church, and community. r II I960 - 1961 OFFICERS Mrs. George Failor Treasurer Mrs. Ralph Neiswander Secretary Mr. Richard Dcringer President Mr. Jack Miller Vice President 5B. S. in Ed., Ohio Northern University - M. A. , Ohio State University Administrator, counselor, and friend, Mr. Earl H. Younkman coordinates the varied activities of the school system. It is the principal's responsibility to supervise the teachers, keeps records of pupils and supplies, supervise an adequate accounting system, act as the athletic director, and establish some of the policies of discipline, grading, and activities. When not involved in work at school, Mr. Younkman can be found reading, listening to good music, and planning vacations which he never takes. OFFICE STAFF We run errands, answer the phone, and are available for many jobs. WE ARE THE OFFICE ASSISTANTS Gretchen Archer, Geneva Motter, Sue Jones, Marianne Kain, Nancy Anspach Gloria Sanders is a part-time worker in the office, who attends Ohio Northern University when she isn't typing or helping at the mimeograph machine."A TEACHER IS A PERSON This expression is from a book of the same title by Charles A Wilson, formerly of Ada. Just what is a teacher? A teacher is a person who provides others with knowledge or insight. Most people labor under the misconception that all teachers must be perfect, which would take them out of the human state, since complete perfection is not an attribute of mankind. As a group, teachers are quite like other people. Many are highly competent; some possess average talents, and a few are misfits. If we would study the Ada High School faculty, we would find that our teachers mean more to us than someone who gives us "too much" homework. We of Ada High School should be grateful that our faculty is one of which we may be proud. They all are highly competent, yet are seldom given any praise for the many things they do for the students. They attend school functions, are always willing to help any student desiring that help, and they go to the P. T. A. meetings with the idea of helping the student body. In fact, they do so many things that we frequently find them busy with these activities, in addition to their school work. Yes, our teachers have given a good account of themselves in the past, and can be expected to make even' greater contributions as the public achieves a better understanding of the critical roles they play in society, for------a teacher is a person.
