remitting zeal to organize, systernatize and imple-

head. She was at one time Dean of Boys. Serving as
director of attendance and as grade adviser, she was
responsible for the inauguration of Jackson's guidance
and attendance systems. She found time to sponsor
the usherettes and the cheerleaders. The Parents As-
sociation has elected here an honorary member, and
she has also been elected an honorary member of
N.Y.U.'s Pi Lambda Theta.
Mrs. Brogan says, "I hope that each graduate makes
MRS. ELISABETH BROGAN
the best of his ability and contributes to the growth of
our country, and particularly that the girls investigate
and train for the many opportunities that are available
to women todayf'
During her recent leave of absence, lN4rs. Brogan
traveled in Africa. Now she is retiring and plans to
continue her travels.

Honorary Senior to Mrs. Brogan, on the occasion of her
retirement, in recognition of her devoted service to An-
drew Jackson High School. lklrs. Broganls fellow sen-
iors congratulate her upon her 'graduationl and wish
her bon voyage in her new 'careerl as world traveler.
