CAROLYN LA FONTAINE
Who's who? Carolyn LaFontaine, that's who!
This is one girl who was really meant to go some-
place in the world. She has a sense of responsi-
bility which makes her a leader, perseverance
which causes her to finish everything she starts,
and an optimistic attitude which allows her to
take defeats as they come and to keep looking
ahead toward new goals. Far more important
than this, however, is Carolyn's unique ability to
attract people by her winning personality. She
is well known for her ability to create fun and
warmth wherever she goes. lf you'll ask any
senior if they know her, they are likely to reply
with a puzzled, "Who doesn't?" We don't care
to think what Bentley would be like without her.
Did someone say she was ambitious? She has
been elected president of F.T.A. for the past two
years, has served as editor of the i957 Pioneer,
and has been a member of the senior class coun-
cil, pep club, and dance club. Carolyn was also
one of the three girls selected to represent our
school at Girls' State held on the U of M campus
last summer. In fact, she liked the U of M so well
that she plans to return in the fall of l957 to pre-
pare for a teaching career. Whatever the future
may hold for Carolyn, everyone will be wishing
her "good luck" as she heads for college and
what will no doubt be a full and colorful life.

Think of one ot the most versatile girls in our
school. Then think of one who never wears a
frown no matter what difficulties she meets or
in how many activities she becomes involved.
Perhaps the secret ot her happiness lies in the
tact that she iust doesn't allow unpleasant expe-
riences to slow her down. As you must already
know, the person vve're speaking of could only
be Lou-Anne Hembree.
During her years here at Bentley, Lou-Anne has
always been a friend to those who have needed
a friend and a helper to those who need help.
Being busy in all kinds ot organizations hasn't
dulled Lou-Anne's sense ot humor. She always
takes time out to laugh when the occasion calls
Her versatility is shown by the many activities
she has participated in: senior class council, iun-
ior and senior play, band, orchestra, and dance
club. This year she served as president of the
band. Last summer Lou-Anne went to the Univer-
sity ot Michigan to attend Girls' State, where she
was elected mayor ot her city. Her classmates
and teachers honored her with the D.A.R. good
citizenship award. From all appearances, she has
acquired an excellent background for her future
career ot teaching.
Like her? We sure dol She has brought honor
to her school and friendship to everyone she has

Don Pierce has been selected as one of the
five outstanding seniors for his all-around leader-
ship and ability. Don attempts many things, not
thinking in terms of personal gain or prestige,
but in terms of doing his best. A list of achieve-
ments during his high school years would be too
long to read in an hour, and still longer to write.
The story of his success began long ago when he
was elected president of the iunior high student
council. Since then, he has been elected iunior
class president and this past year he served as
class president once again. Last summer he rep-
resented Bentley at Boys' State held at Michigan
State University, but he doesn't stop here by any
means! He has played basketball and has earned
a letter in tennis. On top of all this Don ranks
well up in the first quarter of his class scholasti-
Don seems to have the ability to attract friends
just as readily as he earns success. He never
pretends to be anything but his own reliable self.
Naturally, a sense of humor is a must for a well-
rounded person. This, he has too--and in abund-
ance. His ability to take a joke as well as give
one will always be a valuable asset to him in
It's plain to see, from all of this, why we think
so much of Don. He's a true friend, and we hope
for only the best to come to him.
