In September, 1947 , seventeen bright eyed children entered the room of Mrs. Owen
at Homer to begin their school career. In the small village of Albion, six miles away,
were thirteen lst, 2nd, and 3rd graders under Mrs. Welch. There are now only seven
of the original first graders from Homer and Albion. They are: Calvin Nolt, Dennis
Irwin, Sherry Bordorf, Roberta Rowe, Ann Spellman, Sonja Voorhees, and Larry Wood.
In the second grade the Homer students were sent to Albion to join the second
graders there which made a large class of 20 students. The class was divided between
Mrs. Welch and Mrs. Soka.
In the third grade Anita Thompson joined our group making it 21. We were again
under the guidance of Mrs. Soka.
For our fourth year we were transferred to the Homer Building under the sponsorship
of Mrs. Hockensmith. Myrtle Hastings and Dick Wuthrioh joined our class.
In the fifth grade we were again divided. Some under Mrs. Hockensmith and the
others went into the late Mrs. Beatrice jenkins' room. Laura Walder joined our class
We were again united in the sixth year under the direction of Mrs. jenkins. Kathleen
Herrmann joined our ranks this year. Mrs. jenkins passed away during this year and
Mrs. Hines and Miss Robinson were our teachers for the balance of the year.
We were now ready to climb the big stairs and enter junior High School. It was
quite an experience to change classes and have more than one teacher for a whole day.
We all survived the 7th and 8th grades, however, and were soon ready to enter high
During our freshman year we had Mr. Workman for an advisor. We entertained the
sophomores at a party as our big event of the year. We made money for our class by
selling cards and stationery. Bertha Gern came to us from West Salem.
When we were sophomores we ordered our class rings. Agnes Wacker came to us
from Buckeye. We sold pies at noon to make money. Mrs. Hines was our class advisor.
Some members of our class started their dramatic lives by acting in the one-act play
"Beware the Bear. "
During our eleventh year we had Mrs. Neiswinter as our class advisor. We worked
hard to present our class play "Angel of Red Canyon. " We entertained the Senior Class
at the annual junior-Senior Prom in the cafeteria. Our theme was "japanese Gardens. "
In the fall of 1959 we became the first senior class to be enrolled under the name of
Black River Local School. Tom Johnson, from Lodi, joined our ranks. We presented
for our Senior class play "You'll Die Laughing" under the direction of Mr. Workman. We
helped edit the school annual "The Echo," took our senior class trip to Washington,
D. C. , and was graduated on May 28, 1959.
Through the years we had a total of thirty different members in our class, but only
twelve of us graduated together. There have been sad and happy moments in our twelve
years. Only GOD knows what will happen to us next.
