At the beginning ofthe fourth year,two new students joined our class. They were: Irene Kozub who came
to us from Valley City, and Basil Morehead who came to Spencer from Berea. Mrs. Bertha Rowe was our
Our fifth grade teacher was Mrs. Doris Kime, but because of illness, Mrs. Eunice Leach took her
place. Dieter Storl joined us from Massillon.
In the sixth grade, the class was increased by Ken Byrd from North Canton and Joe Kobylski from
Townsend-Wakeman. Our teachers during this year were: Mrs. Margarette Puderbaugh and Mrs. Olga
During the 1956-'57 school year, we took that all-important step to junior high school. Mrs. Olga
Dattilo was our class advisor and home room teacher. j
The following year our class was increased bylEarnestine Hardin who came from Elyria. Mrs.
Rosemary Stoll was our home room teacher.
We obtained the title of "freshman" in the 1958159 school year. Mr. George Gifford was our home
Mr. Gifford was also our home room teacher during our sophomore year. During that year we sold
candy, had bake sales, and had a slave day.
The Huntington first graders in 1950 were: Joan Dague, Martha Free, Phyllis Haines, David McMillan,
John Nesbitt, Roy Leininger, Carole Hawley, and Elaine Querin. We were frightened beginners, but also
were eager learners under Lucille Murray. ,
In the second year of trying work, we students learned more about "Alice and Jerry" and were intro-
duced to the alphabet. Mrs. Gertrude Smith was our teacher.
The third grade brought quite a few changes to its constituents. Jeff Keep joined us this year. We
studied a new English book, our first of that type, and received a fully lettered and numbered grade card.
Mrs. Koons sought to educate us.
g Our fourth, fifth, and sixth grade subjects were administered in many ways and by many different
teachers because of illness. Each helped in the development of our minds and characters. Gail Britt
and Gary Westervelt joined us in our fourth year.
The seventh and eighth grades were probably our hardest and most worth-while training periods.
Donald Britt joined us in the seventh, and Mr. Orlando Shilts was our instructor.
The eighth grade was the end of our elementary education and the foundation for high school. Mrs.
Mildred Rowland taught us this year.
Today there are the everlasting memories of a class play called"Goodnight Uncle George" and an
eighth grade trip to Kelly's Island and Put-In-Bay with a drive-in movie to complete our trip.
At last, the long-awaited moment had arrived! Consolidation! New faces of people who were to be life-
long friends. New adventures and new challenges! Our class projects during our junior year were: selling
candy and magazine subscriptions, and holdingpaper drives. There were many eventful occasions that year,
including the taking of the Iowa State Development Test, the serving of refreshments at the basketball
gamesg the Junior-Senior Prom, the theme being "Over the Rainbow," with the Strine's Orchestra, and
that wonderful day when we received our class rings. Janet Dalgleish and Carol Foster joined our class at
Then the year finally arrivedg we were SENIORS !Everyone looked forward to those special days off for
getting subscriptions and advertisements for the annual, and getting out of school to have our senior
pictures taken. One of our major and most exciting achievements for the senior year was editing the annual,
"The Echo." As class projects, we held a paper drive, sold stationery, sold refreshments at the football
games, and sponsored a number of banquets and several dances for the enjoyment of the school board,
teachers, parents, and friends.
We, as 9-C1HSS,Ch0Se Olll' U10'Cf0,f10W61', class colors, color of robes for graduation, and our invitations.
At the end of our long, tedious journey, we are finally about to take that great step out into the world.
We are sincerely grateful to the superintendents, teachers, advisors, and parents for all they have done
to give us this honor, and we hope that as we go our separate ways, we will live up to the standards set before
us here, that were taught to us both by teachers and parents, and that we will carry them with us wherever
life's path leads us. We only hope that we can return to these Halls Of Learning some day to recapture old
memories of days gone by.
