We have divided it into four distinct sections, based upon our school motto - TO STRIVE, TO SEEK, TO FIND, AND NOT TO YIELD.

During these year, her ideals and her knowledge have in¬ fluenced the lives of an uncountable number of students. Miss Deborah is a person who takes an in¬ terest in every phase of life at Ahoskie High School; be it athletics, student government, or any of the other extracurricular activities or organizations. Every day Miss Brown is called upon by numerous students for advice and assistance, and she never fails to adhere to their requests. When student elections come around, to whom do candidates go for help with their speeches? - to Miss Deborah, of course. Her unlimited vocabulary and outstanding oratory attributes are both respected and admired by faculty and students alike. Miss Deborah casually lectures to a Senior English class. Serving as Senior sponsor, Miss Deborah is constantly assisting doubtful seniors in plotting their future. Her " words of wisdom” very of¬ ten tend to alter the plans of some would-be dropouts. Aside from her daily tasks as a teacher, Miss Deborah always has a kind word and a warm smile for everyone. It is for these, and many other, wonderful contributions to Ahoskie High School, and with deepest love and utmost respect, that we ded¬ icate the 1964 volume of The Chief to Miss Deborah M. Brown. Whenever a poem or speech is needed. Miss Deborah is always willing to write it. Among Miss Brown’s extra tasks at Ahoskie High is that of yearbook adviser. She is con¬ stantly putting aside her classwork to give any needed assistance on this publication. The staff of The Chief would be lost without the careful proofreading and copy alterations that Miss Deborah is responsible for. 6 Miss Brown labors over pages of copy for the annual. » ay f » p. n cmnrrr t TO STRIVE Ahoskie High School is equipped with a devoted faculty, who constant¬ ly strive to present to their students a well-balanced and solid academic foundation. The students of Ahoskie High are fortunate to have teachers who are always willing to put aside their own work and give special per¬ sonal attention to any individual stu¬ dent. To Strive 7 Tribute to a Martyr The staff of THE CHIEF has seen it fitting and ap¬ propriate that a tribute to John Fitzgerald Kennedy, our late President, be included in this issue for the year 1964. He was a young man, alive with an intense love of living, and possessing a keen, understanding interest in, and concern for, the problems of the young people of our time. In words far more eloquent than ours could ever be, Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. in the edition of the SATURDAY EVENING POST for December 14, 1963, has presented a moving eulogy to the President. From this beautiful tribute we present the following excerpt: ' . . . But overriding everything else, he had a vision of America, of what this country might do and might be, and he had a vision of the world. He saw this nation as a noble nation, raising the standards of existence and opportunity for all its citizens. He was always receptive to new experience, and new experi¬ ence steadily deepened his sense of what America must do to fulfill the vision . . . And so a crazed political fanatic shot him down. With this act of violence, and with the violence that followed, the idea of America as a civilized nation - the idea which John F. Kennedy so supremely embodied - suffered a grievous blow. The best way to serve his memory is to redeem and revindi¬ cate the values of decency, of rationality, of civility, of honor - those values for which he stood through his life and to which in the end he gave his life. " And so we, as those upon whom the future fate of America depends, can best serve the memory of this great and good man by committing ourselves to the ideals for which he lived so valiantly. In the words of another great American, we can " ... Dedicate our¬ selves to the unfinished task remaining before us.” We can, indeed, present such profiles in courage as will best serve our day and generation. The flag on the front AHS campus hovers at half mast against a mourn¬ ful grey sky on the day of the tragic murder. As a token of respect and love, Ahoskie High School suspended classes for the day and television sets were installed at various vantage points throughout the build¬ ing on November 22, 1963, on the occasion of the fu¬ neral of President Kennedy. Many pupils gathered in the auditorium and followed reverently and quietly the details of this deeply moving ceremony. Thus they were privileged to see and hear history in the making as the humbled world paid homage to the memory of our great President. 8 Ask not what your country can do for you - Ask what you can do fcr your country. MARION EUGENE ALLSBROOK (Gene) 1947-1964 10 MR. J. W. YOUNG JR. In my first year as principal of AhoskieHigh School, I am very glad to be able to commend the entire stu¬ dent body for their cooperation, school spirit, and con¬ stant endeavors to honor the name of our school. I extend to the staff of THE CHIEF my congratu¬ lations for a job well done, and to all the school or¬ ganizations for their high standards of efficiency. It has been a great pleasure to work with and for you, and together, I believe, achieve a commendable amount of success, scholastically, as well as in extracurricular activities. In all my efforts in your behalf, I have tried al¬ ways to remember that we are teaching not so much subject matter as boys and girls, who will, I trust, make a great nation even greater in the coming years. To that end, I and my faculty have dedicated our best ef¬ forts. MRS. RUSSEL MARTIN French, English, Beta Club Sponsor; French and English; E.C.C., Graduate Work at Wake Forest and U.N.C.G.

We are privileged to have at Ahoskie High School a band in which we may all be proud. In his first year at Ahoskie, Mr. Charles Armstrong has devel¬ oped one of the best bands in our school’s history. Although small in number, this corps has thrilled many spectators with its precision drills and striking music. 72 Glee Club Among the various organizations in which stu¬ dents may display their talents is the Glee Club. This group, led by Mrs. Mary Rose Lawerence, has often excelled in the presentation of choral music throughout our community. 73 LINDA FORNES CHERYl OVERTON NITA IOY-N FRANCES MILLER CLARA ANN REILLY Majorettes HEAD MAJORETTE Cheerleaders LINDA DEANE BARNES PAM VANN SHIRLEY WIGGINS CAROLYN MITCHELL DIANE PARKER GYPSIE WILROY OLIVIA BURKETT PEGGY LOU HEATH Bus Drivers Mary Ellen Brown, Donnie Godwin, Roy Mullen, Winnifred Mitchell, Clifford Askew, Phyllis Terry, Bobby Gardner, Robert Perry, Diane Hill, Kenneth Mitchell, Kay Blowe, and Glenn Daniels. 76 AND NOT TO YIELD Throughout the years, Ahoskie High has developed a reputation for championship teams.

COMPLIMENTS OF A FRIEND Not All Is Work at A IIS . . . It all begins in the balmy Carolina fall, when students gather to boost school spirit at their first pep rally . . . Simultaneously, at another part of the campus, this lovely sextet gathers to see what they can " cook up” . . . P.E. boys enjoy tag football in the mild September mornings . . . And enthusiastic students build a display for the doomed opponents . . . As October approaches, cheerleaders prime up for the big homecoming game . . . 109 The POW WOW holds a bake sale . . . And Betas play in chicken salad . . . Then comes winter ' s frigid grip . . . But things are not so cold in the classrooms as . . . Miss Parker chuckles happily in the library . . . and SOMEONE gets a smile out of Mrs. Sessoms . . . Then comes the time when the Seniors begin to be pressured . . . This group of Seniors certainly doesn ' t look Pressured - Of course not - this is Miss Brown ' s second period English class. When the snow melts, and the days become warm, a group of AHS students decide to take a pre-season dip in the pool . . . . . . So, as one may well see, there is more to going to school - that is, at AHS - than just books. lt ' « ■ 7 • s ' •» " « Vi IT™ . .. _3£$ E|$ssk « 1 §fPS •■ " • 1 k t r
