Back in the year of 1936 we were just another group of first graders. We were a group
of twenty-five when entering school. During these twelve years of school, we have lost and
gained different members of the class. Our losses were out numbered by gains, so as a
result we have a Senior Class of seventeen. Wie still have but seven members who survived
all twelve years of school at Creston. They are Dick Ream, Virgil Christian, Eleanor West,
Howard Graber, Bill Marko, Annetta Coffey, and Gene Lance.

At this time and space, we as fellow classmates in
our Freshmen and Sophomore years, wish to express our
mutual feelings in the absence of John Clark. Formerly
being in Akron he joined us as a Freshman. He was a
great asset to our Basketball and Baseball teams, and we
were all deeply stricken to learn of his untimely death.
SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
QFreshmenj 1945 - 1946
Twentyfnine faces were eagerly facing the front of the room in September of
1945. Were we ever big now. Why in four years we were going to make the best
class that ever graduated from Creston High School. Along with a lot of planning
we chose the following officers to govern our class. Presidentg Paul Lenagcher,
Vice Presidentg Jerry Lance, Secretaryg Bill Antchutz, Treasurer, Wanda Craft,
Student Councilg john Clark and Esther Russell. As our adviser we chose Miss
Even if we were grown up and in High School now we weren't too old to
have fun. We all bundled up for a hayride which was our first Freshman party.
We all had a nice time.
We were gifted with two new boys, jim Weliver and john Clark. However
jim left us before the year was up.
In May, twenty-nine very happy freshmen, rather bored of being just fresh-
men, retired to their homes for a three month vacation.
QSOphomorej 1946 - 1947
In the fall of 1946, 21 members of our original Freshman Class returned to
take their very honored places in the front of the study hall.
During the summer we gained 2 members, Zella Slater and Anton Dyke. We
chose as our officers the following:
President, john Clark, Vice President, Eleanor West, Secretary, Zella Slater,
Treasurer, Virgil Christian, Student Council, Wanda Craft and Ralph McClintock.
We chose as our adviser Miss Smith.
