Student Store, Nook,
Stockroom Fill Needs
On your way to lunch you may have noticed a person
standing behind a counter at the base of the stairs
eagerly waiting to sell the various snacks displayed
behind the counter display case. The person was
probably a member of either the Senior or Junior
National Honor Society which ran the little goody shop
called "The Nook".
"I think it was a good way to earn money for the
NHS," smiled Wendy Yu 1121, "the funds went towards
scholarships and charity."
One of the competitive adversaries of "The Nook",
however, was the candy machine located in front of the
stockroom. This brought students in contact with the
stockroom nearly every day. The stockroom was run
by Mr. Jerry Davis and it featured many popular items
needed for shops at Benson such as: safety glasses,
aprons, coveralls, shop rags, and various paints and
inks. Usually the items were sold forthe cost needed to
Flight next door to the stockroom was another
student necessity, the student store. It sold all kinds of
writing and drafting instruments and supplies. The
student store was run by Mrs. Carol Grasvik and Mrs.
Ruby Nolf, who retired in April of 1985 and was
replaced by Mrs. Anne Bankston from the bookroom.

their historic events, record, and print them for future
reference by the students.

when she sees some of the pictures going in the Blueprint. F. Canute
Anderson 1111 copies down some names needed for a caption. G.

1121 looks dazed when he breaks the news that he istransferring out
