students of Berrien Springs High School entered an eventful 1954-1955 school
year, Many new names appeared in the class rolls and faculty list.
New equipment was put to good use during the school year, especially the
lockers in the first floor hall of the high school. A new ceiling in the gymnas-
ium and band room aided both performers and audience. A public address sys-
tem was installed during the summer vacation, it saved many footsteps for
students and faculty.
A review of the events which brought excitement, downfalls, and honors are
found in each division of the book. Numerous school plays and extra-curricular
activities are found in their respective divisions.
Good reading to all who scan this book.
