THE 1954 Published By The Senior Class of ALBEMARLE HIGH SCHOOL Albemarle, North Carolina fORMD The opening curtains on the last phase of our lives at Albemarle High School signify for us, the class of 1954, the end of a period important in our lives. We review with pride and wistfulness the years behind us and present, as the stars, our last production upon this stage of high school days. We shall call our last and most important production, Crossroads, and we take our final bow with fervent thanks to our producers, directors , patrons, and our understudies, starlettes and child prodigies. We, the seniors of Albemarle High School, proudly dedicate this, the 1954 Crossroads, to a man who has held as his purpose in life, our success, and has never ceased to work and inspire others to strive for the highest goals in life— honesty, integrity, leadership, character, and service. It is with pride that we ex- press our love and appreciation to one of the finest men in North Carolina .... 4 H. T. ' TOBY " WEBB PRODUCffiS Claud Grigg, Superintendent Joe L.

Upon the stage, one by one, appear the stars of the production, and you are able to peer into the past and visualize the many activities that have prepared them for this greatest of all performances. It also becomes clear who, from among the stars, can be classified as the star performers. As the act progresses you become aware of the im- portant behind-the-scenes understudies, the newcomers to the theater, the starlets, and the beginning actors and actresses who are so fondly called, “child prodigies.” ACT I “ Travel Daze” ' Morning after the night before’ ' Will you please sign 10 1 1 U u Miss Doris Tucker Sponsor SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS Myron Snoteierly, President Claud Grigg, Vice-President Pattie Sue Almond, Secretary Preston Burr, Treasurer 1 1 “Dig that crazy stoop!” “ Morrow Mountain Mermaids ” ALDRIDGE ALMOND ALMOND ANDREWS SHERRILL ALDRIDGE . . . “Melody is the absolute language in which the musician speaks to every heart.” . . .
