SENIDR CLASS lil TORY
As we look back through our years in school, these are the things we will never forget.
One day, a long time ago, in September of 1944, a group of youngsters started their
first day of school, They entered either the Bentleyville or the Somerset Schools to begin
to prepare for graduation which would take place twelve years later. Believe it or not, but
those youngsters turned out to be us.
Our first three years were spent in the big red brick school building. We all worked
hard to learn our lessons. Before we realized it, it was time to transfer to the Main Street
School or as we called it, "Lower End". Here, we enjoyed having a different teacher for
each subject. Our picnics at Smith's farm were full of fun. We received diplomas for
penmanship in the sixth grade.
In 1950, we went back to the red brick school. We were a little frightened when we
first came. The upperclassmen looked so-o-o big. We soon got used to them, We were
all happy to see Dolores Martin and Rodney Dague receive the American Legion Award.
Martha Rae Clutter received the same award at Somerset.
All the excitement really began in our freshman year, Initiation day came with the bur-
lap sacks, long underwear, and worst of all the lipstick. We welcomed our new friends and
classmates from Somerset with a get-together party. The Frolic came near the end of the
year. All the girls and boys were dressed in their very best. This was the first formal
for most of us. Our Frolic was a great success-thanks to Mr. Cristina and Mr. N. Hrutkay
for making our freshman year a memorable one.
We chose our own course of study in our sophomore year. Some of us were busy with
commercial subjects while others were tangling with geometry and language. We worked
hard this year so we celebrated with a trip to Kennywood at the end of the year.
Our junior year came bouncing along. We ordered our class rings and received them
just in time for Christmas. We had a wonderful time at our Christmas party. Mr. Jansante
and Miss Kilonsky kept their eyes on us all year long. Thanks to them, we were kept on the
straight and narrow. Most of us 'went to the Prom at the end of the year. Our junior year
flew by and our senior year crept up on us.
We finally reached the top. At last, we are SENIORS. This year we sold magazines,
Hats off to John - our super salesman. Steve Zemencik was elected our class president.
Name cards came. As a result, all seniors had writers cramps. The senior class play,
"Phantom of the High School", was presented in November -- orchids to Miss Nelson and
Miss Kilonsky for doing such an excellent job in making it a success. Folk dances were
the highlight of our Christmas party. Senior pictures were taken, With the help of
Mr. Hetherington, our yearbook was completed. The Prom was held at the Nemacolin
Country Club. It truly was a sight to behold, Isabelle Scicchitano reigned as May Queen
Class night, baccalaureate, and commencement are just around the corner. Commence-
ment will bring our senior year to a close. Our school days will always be moments to
remember. We will now find our path and never forget our happy days we have spent toget-
her. Our way has been shown and we will follow that straight and narrow path.
