DR. R. B. LYNN, President
aan! of gfcluca fion
We are grateful to the public spirited men who comprise
our Board of Education for their time and efforts in our be-
half. Dr. R. B. Lynn, a prominent and successful surgeon is
president, having served in that capacity for a time under the
Alton District No. 151. In Iuly of 1952. when the new Alton
Community Unit District No. ll went into operation Dr.
Lynn was again elected as president,
Mr. G. L. Davis, Purchasing Agent of the Owens-Illinois
Glass Company, is Secretary of the Board. Mr. C. R. Free-
man, Administrator of Alton Memorial Hospital as a member
of the Board is Director of Personnel. Mr. R. L. Goulding,
President of E. H. Goulding Co. is Director of Building and
Grounds. Dr. C. I. Hemphill, dentist, is Director of Health
and Safety. Mr. Middleton, attorney, is Director of
Curriculum. Mr. E. P, Waterhoiise, Purchasing Agent, Alton
Box Board Co. is Director of Public Relations.
This group of capable, conscientious, and hard working
men not only gives a considerable amount of their energy
and time to the formulation of policies needed for the present
efficient operation of the Alton school system but are also
engaged in anticipating the future educational needs of the
youth of the community. This was clearly demonstrated by
the presentation of their building program to the voters of the
school district early in February and receiving from them a
decisive and encouraging endorsement of all their proposals.
We are justifiably proud of these men who are working
steadily toward the progressive advancement of the educational
system of Alton and who are so strongly motivated in their
efforts for our own improvement and for those who will
graduate from Alton High in the years which lie ahead.

As we near the time cf graduation from Alton Senior High School and the end of our
school days in the Alton system, believe it or not, we are beginning to have our reflective
moments. Amd as we pause to think of what the schools of our home town have meant to
us. we naturally think of the fun we have had - - even though we might have complained
of a "tough" assignment now and then. We realize, too, in our more serious moods the
many educational opportunities and advantages we have had which were denied our grand-
parents, and even our parents. Consequently, it is in this connection that we think of the
persons who were able to recognize our educational needs and who worked so diligently
toward their attainment,
When we consider individuals our thoughts turn to Mr Iohuson whom 'ill of us have
known and respected during his years as Superintendent. We have had the o ortinit t

the best in the State of Illinois. Because of Mr. Iohnson's dynamic leadership and pleasing
personality, his firm grasp of the knowledge of school operation and management. and his
sincere. conscientious, and hard-working efforts toward the completion of a job well-done,
we have no doubt that the Alton Unit District is destined to become an outstanding school
system in the Nation. We are pleased to loin the many hundreds who have rad t d d

toward the educational advancement of our schools in general and toward our own, as
students, in particular.
