On SepTember 7. l945, eighTy-one eighTh graders crowded in Room 203 in
order To be divided inTo Two secTions. Mrs. F. PrunTy and Mrs. Williams were our
homeroom Teachers-Mrs. PrunTy keeping TorTy-Two ol us and Mrs. Williams ThirTy-

CourT-STarkey secTion: TwenTy lrom Salem: Ten Trom VinTon: six Trom Ballyhack: six
Trom Goodview: Tour from Hollins: Three Trom BrackeTTown: Tour from KingsTown:
Two Trom Big Hill: Two Trom CaTawba: one Trom BenT MT.: and one from Franklin
We were a rip-snorTing eighTh grade-Typical ol The group which is classified
neiTher as elemenlary nor as high school sTudenTs. Generally, we were noT Too much
inTeresTed in school work: raTher. we wished To "belong" and expressed This desire by
being holy Terrors in every sense ol The word.
However, some ol us spenT The Time proTiTably, Tor during ThaT year several
ol us made The honor roll and mosT ol us passed To The ninTh grade.
When we reTurned To school in I946 our Tormer Teachers greeled us wiTh
hopes ThaT we were going To be quieTer, more sTudious boys and girls. Our home-
room Teachers were Mrs. Frances Harrison and Mrs. Williams. As we Tormed our
cliques, our discovery ThaT many members of our ranks had noT reTurned To school
dampened our spirils somewhaT-lor we had been so proud of being The largesT
class in The school!
This year we became baskelball conscious. MosT ol us were overshadowed
by The older members ol The Teams. buT Those of us who made The squads Tried hard
To be ouTsTanding whenever we were given a chance. ln addiTion To our being Tull-
Tledged members oT The school squads, we were Thrilled when boTh our boys' and
girls' Teams won The inlramural championship ThaT year. Now class pride began To
exhibiT iTselT: we became aware of The necessiTy To sTick TogeTher, work hard, and
prepare Tor our iunior and senior years.
During The school year, I947-48, our homeroom Teachers were Mrs. Flossie
WesT and Mrs. Gladys Saunders. By This Time our membership had dwindled, buT we
were sTill The largesT class in The school. We worked -hard and played hard This year.
Our baskeTball players were recognized as good players, we parTicipaTed in every
acTiviTy ol The school, and in general we had grown up a bil.
When we relurned To school in Seplember I948, we meT in Room 205 where
our Co-sponsors, Mrs. Cooke and Mr. Price. divided us inTo Two secTions. However,
no longer were we To have separaTe homeroom periods and class business was To be
handled by one seT ol olficers. This was our lousiesT year. We were conscious of
being responsible Tor The prom and ol The need Tor funds Tor our senior year. We
were imporTanT members ol The Teams now and Reba Terry was elecTed capTain ol
The girls' squad. We sponsored proiecls-The ChrisTmas Tree: T-he "Mr. Carver-Miss
Addison" Wedding la proiecl sponsored ioinlly wiTh Addison Highl. ln May we
sponsored The prom lor The seniors, sparing no Trouble and expense To make iT one
ol The besT in The hisTory oT The school.
Our Senior year has been one oT much acTiviTy. We have direcled mosl ol
our Talenls and Tunds Towards preparaTion ol The I950 Annual. We have been acTive
in aThleTics and have been members ol several organizaTions, in many insTances holding

Ouf of Carver in ninefeen fiffy
We, a class brighf and fhriffy,
Will do our besf fo make a name
And wrife our sfory on fhe scroll.
Trouble has never worried us
As we fraveled Through life's dusf,
By a road fhaf leads us ever on
To fhe highesf places man has frod.
While af sfudy wifh no feacher near,
Our lessons we masfered wifh conscience clear:
We never freffed, poufed or frowned
Buf gof our lessons as by dufy bound.
Through old Carver we onward passed,
Shunning neifher books nor daily class:
Buf mef fhem all wifhouf a dread
And each day found us forging ahead.
The rules of fhe school have we ever kepf,
As we've climbed upward sfep by sfep:
The word "can'f" we puf away
And leff for ofhers fo say.
We've laid aside "can'f" and picked up "must"
And puf much emphasis on if, l frusf:
Thaf is fhe reason why we are here
Crowned wifh success wifh hearfs full of cheer.
lvlarch on, old Carver, grand and fall,
March on. old school mafes, one and all:
To our dear feachers we say, "March on!
To your success when we are gone."
Now fhe fime has come fo say farewell:
l-low our courage fails us you cannof fell,
For our pleasanf memories we have a sigh,
And say fo dear old Carver, "Goodbye"
And now fhaf 'rhe final word is spoken
Lef us keep our ranks unbrokeng
Wifh Carver as our beacon lighf,
Lef us marc-h onward fo fhe heighf.
Wifh relucfance we leave old C. H. S.
Where we've fried fo do our very besf:
We shall sfrive fo reach fhe highesf goal,
And meef life's dufies wifh courage bold.
