Ship Ahoy, to the new horizons which we the
Seniors of 1955 hope will bring to us smooth
sailing. May the treasures we have captured
during our high school voyage be brought back
to us by our i955 Crossroads. Grasp the wheel
firmly! The time has come for us to steer
ourselves directly and surely to yonder ports to
seek the treasure we hope to secure with our
high school knowledge.
We the seniors of Albemarle High School graciously dedicate
this, the 1955 Crossroads, to a teacher who has never ceased to
work and inspire others to strive for the highest goals in lite.
She has taught us to type, directed our plays, and through her
regular attendance at our scholastic, athletic, and social events
has set a standard she can always look at with pride. lt is with
pride that we express our love and appreciation to . . .

The Student Council is the high school government,
composed of four major officers elected by the
student body, a representative from each home
room and the vice president of each class. The
organization works on projects and plans to better
the student body.
The Council undertook the March of Dimes Drive,
with Mrs. Lyke heading the county schools. This
was done very successfully along with their other
projects such as: The Student Handbook, point
system, Housekeeping Committee and the football
concession stand, which every year had brought
the council needed funds. .
Two representatives sponsored by the council were
sent to St. Paul, Minnesota, this summer to the
National Student Council Convention. Plans were
brought back that have helped the council fulfill
its duty to the school.
The ideals of the National Honor Society are Character,
Scholarship, Leadership, and Service. To be eligible for
membership in this society, a student must first possess
a high scholastic average. Then he is judged by the
faculty and present Honor Society Members on the basis
of character, leadership, and service.
lt is hoped that those students honored by membership
in the national Honor Society will continue to strive to-
ward o high, respectable goal.

CREATIVE WRITING CLUB
The Creative Writing Club was reorganized last year and has been very successful under the leadership of
Mrs. J. L. Cashwell. Last year they published Tl-IE INKWELL, a magazine containing original compositions written
by rrembers of the club. They plan to publish the magazine again this year.
"he Diversified Occupations group is composed of eleventh and twelfth grade students training for a specific
trade. The vocational students attend school in the morning and work in the afternoon. This enables a student to
find his vocation while attending school, and at the same time serve his apprenticeship in his chosen trade.
Mr. Jack Cox directs the group.
This is the first year that A.H.S. has had a Distributive Education class for office workers. Miss Bankett, the
sponsor, has helped many girls get office jobs and is still helping them to prepare themselves for a career in the
business world after graduation. They are pictured with the D. O. group.
