Pay Tribute Mrs. Turner came to us in 1930, when we were known as Salem High School, on Broad Street. Since that time she has been a member of the English faculty, teaching English Composition and Literature. Eor the past four years she has been Faculty Sponsor of The Pioneer. Mrs. Turner, formerly Miss Clyde Ramsey, had most of her academic training at Blackstone College, later attending William and Marv and Roanoke College, receiving her Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from the latter. She has made her home in Roanoke since 1926. Prior to this, she taught two years in Hillsboro High School, Loudoun County, and four in Rocky Mount High School. From 1926 to 1930, she taught in the Vinton schools. Her mother, Mrs. Roxie Ramsey, is remembered by people in Roanoke and Salem, who were taught by her during her thirty-six years of service in Henry and Franklin County schools. It is from her, Mrs. Turner says, that she received her love for teaching as well as for things literary. It is Mrs. Turner’s ambition to continue at Andrew Lewis High School until she has equalled her mother’s record. She would like, then, to retire and write a realistic novel, depicting some of her experiences in and out of the class¬ room. She even dares to hope that she may live to be the recipient of letters (thanking her for the “chastisements inflicted in by-gone years”) from a few college presidents, D. D. ' s, etc.—former students of Andrew Lewis—such as those her mother often receives. An extremely industrious and very versatile person, Mrs. Turner is somewhat of a business woman as well as teacher. She makes a proficient bookkeeper and cashier for her husband, outside school hours, and is quite adept at planning meals and taking care of a home, we are told. She likes a quiet home life, with her books and music, enjoys opera and plays very much, and delights in strolling leisurely about in the fields and woods on a spring day. Although firm and resolute in the classroom, she has a quiet, unassuming way which gives charm to her personality. Perhaps her most outstanding trait is illustrated by the thought so often expressed to her students that, those whose lives count for most are people who find reward in the joy that comes from giving freely and unceasingly of their best to tbe world, people who give a great deal more than they expect to receive compensation for.

Mrs. Taylor Turner 7E LOVE her for her genial, lovable nature and sympathetic understanding. We admire her for her intellectuality, diligence, and versatility; for the talent which she possesses in the art of teaching, enabling her to make the study of the English language so appealing to her students; and, for her marvelous capacity for “getting things done. " We shall remember her always for having inspired us in her literature classes to appreciate the finer things of life; for the clear and forceful manner in which she explains and interprets that which she teaches. She has taught us to “work when we work” and, that a sense of worthy achievement is the best reward. We appreciate her for the inestimable service which she has rendered in the publication of this and annuals of other years. With affection and gratitude we, therefore, honor her by dedicating this Pioneer of ' 38 to our much loved Faculty Adviser, Mrs. Taylor Turner.

Introduction y " HEN the days have lengthened into weeks, the weeks into months and the months into years, only memory will remain as the bridge between today and yesterday. The purpose of The Pioneer is to strengthen that bridge and to make the past a little nearer than it would otherwise be. In fulfilling this purpose we, the staff, are presenting to you these pages which we hope will ever be a tangible memory of Andrew Lewis. We are all merely “bit players” on this huge stage of life. As seniors, we leave the first act of our play to begin the next act with a mixed feeling of regret and eager anticipation. To the Class of ' 38 and those to come, we indite this issue of The Pioneer with the hope that you will cherish it and that you will allow it to fulfill its purpose, that of bridging the time. When in after years you sit and think—of scenes, friends and teachers—- may this Pioneer relive for you your life at Andrew Lewis.
