inevitable that we look with pride toward those accomplishments the rolling years have left behind us. A summation of the recent history of any community must make allowance for the part the school played in promoting the local welfare. Thomas Jefferson, our greatest Virginian, in wording his own epitaph, chose the founding of our state university as one of the three greatest achieve¬ ments of his eventful life. Until now, the American tradition that freedom’s cornerstone is nestled securely in the schoolhouse has not been lost sight of, and it is our duty to see that this does not happen. For this reason, we have chosen as the theme of this vitalized commencement, “Serving Our Community.” We should like, tonight, to give our parents and friends a panoramic view of our life here at Andrew Lewis High School, and to visualize the wide field of opportunity presented to us. Under the roof of this building, all of us have had the chance to develop those talents that will shape our careers. We believe that the work we have done here is important. It has been by no means dull drudgery. It has taught us not only to make a living, but also to enjoy life. The speakers who follow me tonight will Typical scene of the work which goes on regularly take you on an imaginary journey to every de- in the School Shop. partment of our school. They will tell you how, under the patient guidance of our teachers, we have learned to earn a living, to cooperate in a group, and also to think independently. We are proud of our past. For you, our parents, these years have been eventful, and for us, your children, they have laid a foundation for life. For us both, these years ahead are the ones that will make history. In spite of the clouds which now envelop the world, we hope and be¬ lieve in the future of Salem, Roanoke County, and Andrew Lewis High School. We, with the rest of the world, are waiting for the sunrise. Evelyn Taylor Smith
