DOWN THROUGH TWENTY-SIX YEARS... Karll V. Ammerman has been the in- spiration behind the progress of Broad Ripple High School. During the 26 years of his leadership, Broad Ripple has grown from a little country school with an enrollment of 94 to a thriving com- munity school with 1,468 students. The eight-room grade and high school combination, pictured at the lower left, was built in 1882 and rebuilt in 1896. It was razed in 1947 to make room for the new unit. The section shown lower center was built in 1913 and is the old- est unit of the present school. Two stories of the west wing, upper panel, were completed in 1935. Shortly there- after, the cottage and football field were added. In 1939 a third story was added to the west wing. Ripple is still expanding! Ground breaking for the newest addition, lower right, was held December 15, 1947. With the new wing and building Broad Rip- ple can accommodate 1,500 students.

DEVOTED TO BROADER, RICHER HUMAN SERVICE • • • Every Thanksgiving the Orange Aid, Ripple ' s all-girl organization, collects food for needy families. Sue Stark, pres- ident; Anne Rust, vice-president; Sallie Hathaway, treasurer; and Jean Hebel, secretary, are packing baskets (opposite page). The library offers students a ready reference for classroom activities and extracurricular interests. Roberta Mc- Millan discusses some new books with Miss Jane Colsher, librarian, as Sharon Smith signs out some books for Dorothy Arnott (top). Members of the stage crew, Lee Caldwell, Fred Wurster, Bob Schoen, and Ed Elrod (center) assist with all pro- grams in the Broad Ripple auditorium. Students help in the nurse ' s room (bottom) where aid is always available. Here Miss Louise Rice, nurse, helps Peggy Dodd as Anna Wonnell, assistant, takes down necessary information. In these and other ways Broad Ripple fulfills Mr. Ammerman ' s aim for broader, richer, human service.
