The life of any high school is reflected through its assembly programs. The assemblies held weekly at Andrew Lewis this year have been educational, entertaining, and inspiring. The programs have proven to be of a great variety. There have been skits and plays participated in by the students and faculty alike, guest speakers including alumnus, Cabell Brand, and the Reverends Raymond Musser and Charles Jolly, oratorical and speaking contests sponsored by Mrs. Strickler’s department, Southeastern Assemblies brought to us by popular demand, and pep assemblies, through which school spirit and enthusia sm were re¬ generated in the halls of Andrew Lewis. Reflecting School Life, Talent, Ideas . . . " Oh dem dry bones” was the main at¬ traction of the puppet show presented by the Southeastern Assemblies. Also presented was a play, " The Tinder Box " . In Caesar ' s dream during the Latin Club Assembly the " Keynotes " (Left to right), Carl Harris, Creed Frazier, Buddy Eakin, and Joe Ferguson, give their rendition of why boys give up the form for gay Paree. " Ouch! " is the exclamation of Liberace (Pat Darden) as Brother George (Douglas Vaughan) hits him over the head with his dear violin. This scene of violence took place during the assembly presented by the Latin Club. Mrs. Strickler ' s Public Speaking Class gave several assemblies for the Eighth Grade. Pictured here is Jeanette Witt, who gave a reading entitled " Sis Hop¬ kins. " Buddy Eakin opened the assembly and Verl Mershon read the Scripture. Many of the year’s as¬ semblies were sponsored by individual clubs. One of the best of these was presented by the Latin Club, a play called “Roamin’ Holiday,’’ written by Sam Harvey. Each class showed its ver¬ satility in talent shows before the student body. The Senior Talent Show, ably emceed by Sonny Hawley, stood out among these. As the year drew to a close, one of the last assemblies looked forward to by the entile student body, was the Annual Assembly, in which the annual dedication was announced. The life of our high school in 1954-55, as depicted through these assemblies, was indeed a bright one. M 87 }
