Social Studies1415To those whom we owe our life.
To those who have given us the ability to use this life.
To all who have helped to make us what we are,
To the past, the present, and the future.
We dedicate our lives.
We are the young, to whom the world belongs.
We are the fortunate, to whom the world turns.
Others are guiding the present,
Still others have guided the past.
Our is the future.
Give us our burden, we are ready.
You have loved us, taught us.
Suffered with us.
Now we have come of age.
Let us do our share, let us live
And love and bring forth our young.
The future lies bright ahead of us
We turn to it eagerly, accepting the good it brings,
Correcting the evil.
The challenge is ours and we are ready.
Give us the future.

Our four years in high school began on September 4, 1 959. Our first few days were miserable ones, for
they were spent in bewilderment and frustration. Our aimless wanderings about the school were not helped
any by mischievous upperclassmen who directed us to classrooms far from our destination. We struggled
through three enervating years until we finally reigned supreme as seniors. What memories do these
years hold for you?
After the shock of our first few days of classes wore off, we settled down to the business of getting ar
education. In October we elected our class officers. Jack Morin, Judy Sarat, Joyce Shaker, and Don Charest
Our class party had a hobo theme and was directed by Miss Durkan, who was to be our class advisoi
for the duration of our high school years.
We were not freshmen any more; we were the new sophomore class. Our class officers. Jack Morin, Cynthie
Brown, Judy Sarat, and Bill Bouley, were elected after having conducted vigorous campaigns. The class
party was conducted with a television personality theme, and our cafeteria was filled with "stars." As we
danced and generally enjoyed ourselves, Bill Bouley and Diane Wallace were chosen king and queen of the
class party. Soon this year was over and we were anxiously awaiting our junior year.
Now we were juniors, truly upperclassmen. We elected as our junior class officers Jack Morin, Cynthia Brown,
Judy Sarat, and Marty McMahon. We selected our class rings early in the year, and we were filled with
pride when they finally arrived in December. On December 4 our Junior Cabaret, "Rhapsody in White,"
transformed the cafeteria into a wonderland of color and breathtaking beauty. Judy Sarat was our only
representative on the Varsity Cheerleading Squad. An ocean liner formed the background for our Junior-
Senior Prom, "Moonlight Cruise." The co-chairmen of the prom were Dorrin Exford and Paul Halbach. The
workers on the prom committees deserve all the credit for the successful presentation of this gala event.
On June 8 we proudly occupied the senior seats for the first time as Judy Sarat and Barry Davilli led the
graduating class down the aisle to the tune of "Pomp and Circumstance," played by organist, Mr. Budding-
We now entered OUR year. We were the second consecutive senior class to have hat trouble. For weeks
that seemed like years, we waited for our Robin Hood hats to arrive. We almost collapsed when they
finally came late in October. Our class officers were Jack Morin, Cynthia Brown, Judy Sarat, and John Litch-
field. Our senior Football co-captains Dick Benoit, Jack Morin, and Stan Drewnowski, led our team to a
successful season. Our varsity cheerleaders for this year included senior members Judy Sarat, Carol Berberian,
Kathy Martin, and Judy Williams. Our representatives to Girl's State and Boy's State were Cynthia Statkun
and Jack Morin. Elliott Moren was our National Merit Scholarship finalist, and Paul Halbach was our repre-
sentative to Governor's Day at the Exposition. On December 1 the senior play, "The Curious Savage," was
presented under the able direction of Miss St. Jean. We made our final debut as children at the annual "Kid
Party." The last few months of the senior year were spent preparing for OUR big day—GRADUATION.

108The undaunted spirit of the Agawam Brownies was maintained again this year, as the 1962 foot-
ball team worked hard to earn a place in the Western Massachusetts Class AA Conference. The
courage and determination of the team on the field were the result of many long hours of practice
and conditioning under the capable coaching of Mr. Leonardi, Mr. Kibbe, and Mr. O'Keefe.
The Brownies played much better than their record might indicate. A late start in two games
hampered the team's efforts to offset 8-6 losses. At Chicopee, the game ended with the Brownies
inches from victory.
Despite these losses the team showed much potentiality. Spurred by the driving efforts of Jack
Morin and Dick Benoit, the Brownies came from behind to present Cathedral with an unexpected
defeat. The following week Bob Morin provided an extra offensive thrust to hand Tech a 32-6
loss. Halfback Gary Cole added his hardrunning at many crucial and tense moments during the
season. These outstanding efforts were led by the capable quarterbacking of John Mikszewski and
the untiring efforts of senior linemen, Stan Drewnowski, Don Glogowski, Jim Harnois, Merrill Tis-
del, Pat Vassallo, Marty McMahon, Bill Ferranti, and Andy Morris. Much credit should also be given
to the many underclassmen who added their tireless support to the team each Saturday.%

Richie Leal The 1962-63 basketball team ended with 4 wins and 16 losses.
The high point of the season was a 71-76 loss to Easthampton,
league leader and Western Mass, entrant. Other big games
were upsets over Minnechaug and Ludlow, the third and
fourth place teams in the league.
Richard Leal led all Agawam scorers with 251 points and a
12.4 average. John Michalak was Agawam's top defensive
player and second high scorer with 151 points and a 7.5
The starting line was composed of Richie Leal, center; Ray
Wright, Jim Grady, and Bob Morin, forwards; John Michalak
and Howie Mosher, guards. Grady was probably the most
improved player as the season progressed. He developed into
a fine rebounder. Other boys who saw considerable action were
Sam Provo, Bill Turgeon, Rich Chandler and "Moose" Morse.

Agawam versus MinnechaugJfoc ieij
Early last fall, the hockey team organized under a new coach, Mr. Robert Fassnacht. In the games that
followed, the enthusiasm of the team was often daunted by tough competition, but the spirit of the Agawam
boys rebounded to hand defeat to Holyoke and Trade High Schools.
Captain Bill Ferranti, Gil Hall, and Paul Zymba scored the "hat trick" during the season. These boys were back-
ed up by hustler Pat Vassallo as wing. Bob Cahill and Pete Egan on defense, and goalie Roger Waite.
Looking forward to next season Mr. Fassnacht has bright prospects for his leading scorer Dave Robinson,
who will be supported by the steady playing of juniors, Dan Debiasio, Bobby Polopek, and John Decker.
Paul Zymba, Bob Cahill, Gil Hall, Roger Waite, Pete Egan, Bill Ferranti, Pat Vassallo.
Once again Agawam entered the fairway competition in schoolboy
sports. Although ours is still an independent team. Coach Harmon
Smith expects Agawam to compete on a league basis in the near future.
Seniors Pete Egan, Richard Leal, and Marty McMahon made up the back-
bone of the 1963 golf team. Other returning veterans, who had aided
the team to a 12-2-1 record in 1962, included Robert Salmonsen, Larry
Charest, Joe DiDonato, and Gerry LaFleur. Several underclassmen were
added to the varsity team this year; these boys were members of the
1962 junior varsity, which completed an undefeated season.
Martin McMahonBill Ferranti Andy Morris John Litchfield
Since we do not have a report on this year's track team in time for publication,
here are a few memories of the 1962 season. First Agawam won the Valley
Wheel Championship and then went on to place fifth in the Western Mas-
sachusetts Championships. At the West Springfield track meet, Andy Morris,
Bill Ferranti, and Ollie Seibert broke the bread jump record by more than
one foot. Andy went on to become western Mass, broad jump champion.
He then placed eighth out of twenty-five broad jumpers in tne state tourna-
Coach Raymond Weiner's hopes ran high as this season approached. Among
his returning seniors are high jumpers, Andy Morris, William Ferranti, and
Richard Lake; low hurdler, Barry Davilli; pole vaulter, Phil Girard; half miler
and quarter miler respectively, John Litchfield and Ray Danton; and discus
and javelin thrower, John Boldebook. These veterans will join with many
underclassmen to make the 1963 team effort a success in the league.
Barry Davilli | | 5Danny Romanko
Since the baseball season will be in full swing long after the date of
publication, a little reminiscing about the 1962 season will have to suffice.
Last year Agawam finished second in the Valley Wheel. Helping to com-
pile a 10-6 record were present co-captains Jack Morin and Don Charest;
Dave Alvigini, one of the league's leading base stealers; John Trzcinski
and Danny Romanko, outfielders; and John Mikszewski, third baseman.
Pitcher Bobby Morin was All Western Mass, last year. At the time of this
writing Coach Harry Leonardi was looking forward to a successful season
