Reaching The Half-Way Mark Left to Right: Treasurer, Larry Clark, Secretary, Betty Ashley, President, Hugh Bainter Sophomores Having wandered through the valley and floundered into the foothills, the mountain climber continues his climb. He pauses midway, looking backward to see if he has chosen the path that will lead to higher ground. In like manner, the Sophomore Class examine their positions and find them¬ selves on middle ground. They realize that now their footing has become more secure and deeply planted. Past experiences will serve as an incentive to continue the climb. The weary and discouraged mountain climber, having been on the trail for hours, finds the need to re¬ fresh himself with a cool drink of water from a near-by spring. So the Sophomores in their middle year of high school life at times find themselves tired, full of anxiety and indecision. Many do not attempt to climb higher, being satisfied with their present elevation. They have lost their sense of direction and wander on treacherous paths seeking short cuts and by-passes to success. Like the mountain climber, they need to refresh themselves with renewed ambitions, to study and to work in order to attain the desired heights. Other members of the Class, having kept their high ideals, have withstood their temptations, and with perseverance have overcome many obstacles. Many school and extra-curricular activi¬ ties have broadened the 1954 Sophomores’ interests and have given them a new horizon. As they view these heights, they know that hard work and faith will enable them to ex¬ plore new paths. With the goal of graduation in sight they realize this is only the beginning of life’s work. They must continue to use their talents and abilities, to improve them¬ selves and to render service to others. This is the Sophomores’ obligation since they have been fortunate to have guide posts showing them the road to Higher Ground. “Heaven is not reached at a single bound; But we build the ladder by which we rise From the lowly earth to the vaulted skies, And we mount to its summit round by round. —Jqsiah Gilbert Holland 48
