Senior Al Fordyce and junior Evie Evers enjoy themselves during first snowfall of winter season
faculty created harmonious atmosphere
There was nothing worse than the loneliness felt by
new students as they entered a strange and unfamiliar
school for the first time. Not one of these students pos-
sessed this feeling long at Centerville High School.
Centerville students eagerly extended a welcome to
newcomers and prided themselves in their friendliness
toward others. Yet friendship was extended not only
to new students or long-time friends and classmates,
but also to faculty, administration, custodians, and cafe-
teria workers as well.
Even though these friendships provided many laughs
and good times there was still another meaning, a more
important meaning to these friendships. The students
found that they had developed within themselves a new
understanding of other people. Having become better
individuals through this increased understanding, stu-
dents were able to enter the adult world 'and to add
rather than to subtract by their presence.

Students took active interest in serving others
Service to the community, exhibited by enthusiastic
Centerville students revealed their genuine and sincere
interest in the progress and welfare oi their area. Aid-
ing several important money-making proiects such as
UNICEF, United Appeal, and the National Heart Fund,
students willingly gave their time to solicit door-to-door
contributions. Some of these service projects were pro-
moted by various school clubs, but others were car-
ried out by individual students. Students also helped
with the largest fund-raising project which encom-
passed the entire community-the Ox Roast.
Many students served their community by Working
earnestly on after-school and weekend jobs. Working
as secretaries, receptionists, carry-out boys, and baby-
sitters, they gained maturity, learned to accept respon-
sibility and were stimulated to attain the more imme-
diate goal of earning money to finance their future as
well as their leisure activities.
