CldSS l"llStOfy 7117 if snr 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- nine. OT our number aT This Time, TwenTy-Three were Trom The NewTown-Pinkard 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 Counly. 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 offices. ThirTeen
