Miss Virginia Meek. I
1. Mary and Vickie put the pendant, a gift from the Panorama Staff, on as Miss Meek
. listens to Vickie's explanation.
2. All three proudly pose for Bonnie and the ADVERTISER.
3. Miss Meek as we saw her the most.
Miss Meek joined us in June of 1973 and soon charmed all of us with her wry wit and deep concern for each of us. In between seeing that we all had supplies that we needed, selling football tickets, typing bulletins, grade-slips, etc. , and writing excuses, she counselled, comforted, scolded and took up for us. We will deeply miss her, for such a friend comes only once in a lifetime.In Memoriam

"I consider a human soul without education like marble in the quarry, which shows none of its inherent beauties till the skill of the polisher fetches out the colours, makes the surface shine, and discovers every ornamental cloud, spot and vein that runs through the body of it . . .

74A Salute . ..
There's so many fine boys
That I hardly know where to start When I commence to brag-There's Dale, Tim, Jimmy and Carrol,
Mike, Randy, Kent and Daryl.
Donnie, Bobby, Howard and Randy, and every one came in handy.
Ollie, Robert, George and Kenny;
yet, we didn't have one too many.
Walter, Keith, Steve and Lee,
and without them all, I don't know where we'd be. But when we start callin' names,
We often leave off a few -And in case this has happened,
We'll miss you too.
But today we are honoring one of these seniors (and that doesn't seem real)
But you can tell by the way he looks,
He's been out-standing in his field.
He served as one of our chapter officers and attended every meeting, and always shouldered his responsibility,
Where-ever the FFA was competing.
He's not just a fair-weather firend,
Because he works even when it's rainy.
So will the winner please come forward,
By the name of David Neil Haney.
