WE fx this book to the great spirit of progress through education, which during these past fifty years has transformed our schools from the frame build- ing of 1897 into the great institution which it is todayg and through these pages express the hope that this spirit will never die, but will live on to increase in richness and power, nourished by those men and women who have seen and felt the benefit of a school for which they will al- ways hold fond memories and a great deal ofpride. A long way it has come and a long way it has to go. ln fifty years from what sort of school system will the students ofHigh Point High School look back to us? life cannot safely forecast the future of education because we can- not realize fully the potential strength of a truly great system. At any rate, we may be sure that it will ever advance forward from mark to mark along the way to perfection. DEDICATE
