ping The Faculty Smooth The Paths - •■ - ... jjs% Our cafeteria supervisors, Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Bradley, spend their time keeping the students healthy, happy, and well fed. Each day they prepare for and supervise three crowded lunch periods. Mmmmmmm: Food! Am I hungry!” says Jo Ann Conklin as Miss Lula Francisco, our faithful worker, and Mary McDaniel serve her lunch. Mr. Morgan Schuster and Mr. Tommie Clayton are serving soft drinks to thirsty students during the lunch periods. Their courteous service helps to keep the lines of students moving quickly in the crowded cafeteria. Mr. Ralph Long, one of the nineteen drivers, whose buses carry students to and from school, has an extremely difficult job that requires patience, understanding, and an ability to disci¬ pline, as sixty-five per cent of the An¬ drew Lewis student body comes to school on these buses. Students are brought in from Catawba, Boones Mill, Starkey, Back Creek, and areas surrounding Salem. Mr. Saunders, the janitor, has many responsibilities which include heating, cleaning, and general maintenance for the school. [ 22 )•

Reaching " Higher Ground " , Looking For Greater Achievements Left to right: Sam Harvey, President, Dale Early, Vice-President, Dot Eller, Secretary, Wesley Patterson, Treasurer SENIORS When the mountain climber nears his destination he looks backward, reviewing his perilous journey. Reaching the summit of the mountain he views in the distance a long range of lofty peaks, each higher than the other. Although he has attained the desired goal he realizes that this Higher Ground is only the first peak. The Senior Class have reached their first peak in their journey to Higher Ground, realizing the Climb has only begun. As they reminisce, their minds go back over the happenings of the past five years. Each year has brought many exciting and different experiences. From timid, bash¬ ful eighth graders, they have developed into dignified, well- poised Seniors. They have shared in the victories and defeats of football and basket¬ ball teams; they have thrilled with pride when the literary teams have received awards for superior work and shed tears when defeated; they participated in many assemblies, thus developing their talents as well as their leadership and abilities. The experience of being on the annual and news¬ paper staffs gave many the opportunity to express their ideas and demonstrate their creativeness. Members of the Senior Choir developed their talents and cooperated with others on many programs, giving enjoyment to their listeners. Pleasure is truly essential in the develop¬ ment of every high school student. The Seniors played an important part in making life at Andrew Lewis more enjoyable. They assisted in the sponsoring of dances and cooperated with others in many social functions. The celebration of Senior Day was the culmination of all their activities; amid all the fun, many were aware that this was the last get-together of the Class of ’55. Then came graduation and with heads uplifted, they left A. L. H. S. looking into the future with visions of greater achieve¬ ments. “Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” 24 f Emerson.
