Senior Class PRESIDENT: Bill Owens SECRETARY; Margaret Ferguson TREASURER: Gail Robertson VICE PRESIDENT: Richard Shumate The Senior Class has had many worthwhile projects this year. The achievement for which the Class of ‘63 is most proud is the initiation of a fund to purchase a new basketball scoreboard.
