The year 1945, we as a class began our study for the future. In 1953 we
could hardly wait to be promoted to high school. Now, we are impatiently
waiting to leave our Alma Mater and to capture what the future is holding
in store for us.
In our freshman year we chose Ellen Dorgan as our President. Our Vice-
President was Nina Belloff; Secretary, Kathy Parker and Treasurer, Alan
Wagner. Our student council representatives were Ellen Dorgan, Richard
Flaherty and Marjorie Badglcy. Under the leadership ol Mrs. I)unn we had
a successful food sale and a 1h x social. Larry Blair. Phyllis Frappier, Marion
Reeves and David Brown left us in this year.
We entered our sophomore year, consisting of 31 happy students, by
having Alan Wagner, President; George Smithlcr, Vice-President: Patricia
Smith. Secretary and Richard Flaherty, Treasurer. Mrs. Crumb was our class
advisor. Our student council members were Alan Wagner, Helen Nowak and
Charles Drake. We ordered our class rings and had a food sale. Aside from
this we did a lot of planning, but nothing materialized. Steve Millard joined
us in 1954.
When we became juniors in September 1955. our class advisor was Miss
Reed. We obtained our class rings in October. Our class projects were a food
sale, Junior Play and Junior Prom. We chose the following officers: President,
Richard Flaherty: Vice-President, Ellen Dorgan; Secretary. Kathy Parker: and
Treasurer, Steve Millard. Our student council representatives were George
Wetterhahn, Richard Flaherty and Nina Belloff.
In our senior and most important year at A. H. S. we lost Kathy Parker.
Kaye Sampson, Mildred Sidmore, Barbara Young and Keith Hockey. We
elected Ellen Dorgan. President: Richard Flaherty. Vice-President; Patricia
Smith, Secretary; and Steve Millard, Treasurer. Our student council repre-
sentatives were Ellen Dorgan, George Wetterhahn and Marjorie Baelgley. Mrs.
Howard was our class advisor. Our senior play Out ol the Frying Pan was a
smash hit. We had The North Country Ramblers and The Knights of Rhythm
play for the dances we gave. Graduating in June 1957 with 27 members, we
will leave our Alma Mater and enter the world on our own with this motto:
WE HAVE CROSSED THE BAY, THE OCEAN IS BEFORE I S.
