History ofthe Senior Class
It was an exciting day of orientation in early September, 1954, when one
hundred twenty of us rather timorous eighth-graders converged at Appomattox
High School to begin our difficult journey along the steep trail to Graduation
Peak. At first we were happily oblivious of the magnitude of the task that loomed
before us, but under the leadership of Captain Kerr and with the aid of our guides,
Miss Carlton, Mrs. Gurney, Mrs. Holland, and Mr. Cockerill, the expedition
was soon advancing in earnest toward the completion of the exploratory courses
outlined for us that year. In addition, we found time to participate in many
clubs and other activities of the school and even presented an assembly program
on President 's Day for the entire student body. The dedication of the new gym-
nasium was an important milestone that made traveling easier and more pleasant
in the realm of physical education and athletics. As we finally neared the first
plateau, we paused to celebrate with a festive picnic and then settled down for
The climb grew ever steeper, but most of us were ready for the challenge
of broader horizons in the ninth grade, and the party was augmented by fresh-
men from Pamplin High School. Guided by Mrs. Runkle, Mrs. Ferrell, and
Mr. Hudson, we separated into groups pursuing business, agriculture, home-
economics, and college-preparatory courses, Band was included for the first
time as an elective that year. Many became eligible for membership in more
clubs and for participation in sports and other extracurricular activities. Mr.
Godwin accompanied some of the science students on an eye -opening excursion
to the zoo in Washington, D. C. After a year of strenuous marching, we were
glad to stop for another class picnic and more rest on the second plateau.
Taking up our burdens again, we forged ahead in our sop. nore year, this
time under Captain Christopher and with the assistance of Mrs. heatham, Mrs.
Beamer, and Mr. Coates. A new program of distributive education and diver-
sified occupations was introduced into the curriculum, and some of us, with an
eye to preparation for future careers, signed up to take the courses the following
year, Promising vocalists in the party joined the choral group directed by Mr.
Coates. There were many obstacles in our rocky path, but most of us had
learned to use our skills in mountain -climbing, to follow the signposts - the
counsel that teachers offered along the way, - and to persevere until we reached
another resting place,
Heartened by our success in attaining the status of Juniors, we were soon
pressing on, though we were grieved by the tragic loss of a very gifted and likable
fellow traveler, Kenneth Marsha ll, Mrs. Morris and Miss Holley patiently guided
us through the dark forests and lush meadows of American history and literature,
and there were new trails to blaze in physics and solid geometry, which our
school now offered. Some of the junior girls were among the first to use the new
facilities of our expanded home-economics department. Miss Riemann, an
exchange teacher from Denmark, joined the faculty and brought a thrilling
awareness of other lands to the country, As a sign of our progress thus far and
of our hope of eventually reaching Graduation Peak, we had the privilege of
receiving our class rings. Moreover, there were memorable group activities to
create an exuberant ESPRIT DE CORPS - presentation ofthe Christmas pageant
and the play, to which we gave our best talent and full support, and entertain-
ment of the seniors with an enchantingly lovely prom that united our hearts in
a glowing atmosphere of utter ecstasy. How we regretted the all-too-rapid
termination of this happy adventure on the trail to the summit!
Now, we, the sixty-five stout-hearted climbers who remain, face the final
stretch of our long journey, and our attention is focused keenly on majestic
Graduation Peak, cloaked in clouds but crowned by the rays of the rising sun.
Our heartaches and triumphs, all steps toward maturity along the road we have
traveled, have prepared us to accept the privileges and responsibilities of seniors
as we raise our standards and goals ever higher.
During our senior year we had a new captain, Mr, Rush, to lead our expedition
pedition. We were divided into two groups with Mrs. Beamer and Mrs. Gilbert
as guides. But our journey was suddenly halted by the death of a fellow traveler,
Peyton Abbitt. After making a pilgrim age to Liberty Baptist Church to pay our
la st respects to our beloved classmate, we continued our journey toward grad-
Early in September we put our democratic principles, which we were so
diligently taught in history and government, to practical use in our senior class
CHINA BOY, our senior play, was a tremendous success. We all took an
active part to make the play an outstanding feature of the senior year.
We seniors are anxiously anticipating the arrival of the month of May during
which time we are planning a trip to New York.
Before finally reaching Graduation Peak, we will be entertained by our
successors with an elaborate farewell party, the Junior-Senior Prom.
Our greatest aspiration, that of reaching Graduation Peak will soon be
realized. As we stand on the elevation just below the Peak, we look over
past experiences with the realization that our expedition will soon be com-
pleted and each will go his own way. We look upward toward Graduation
Peak and realize that once we have reached our destination and obtained the
awards of our achievement, we will become travelers on other highways lead-
ing to other peaks of achievement.

MRS. ANNIE LAURIE BABCOCK
Add a bit of self controlg Hector
These with humor, grief and sympathy
Are tonics for the souL
Then add consideration 1
And a dash of courtesyg . g. K, H V, V
You'11 find these very helpful
Wherever ygu may be. M QQ, t, 1 Qi: ,

Be sure to add some laughter, Q1 gg
And mix in a lot of song: M 't"i-V
These will increase your happiness W 'A
As you wend your way along, MRS- HOLLY CAWTHORNE
To faith and hope and charity
Add these mystic things called loveg
These attributes may be obtained
From the Ruler up above,
Of course you should use gratitude
As these goodly things you share.
So learn them as each day goes
With thankfulness and prayer.
