Foreword On September the eighth, voices filled the halls of E.C.H.S. ringing up the curtain on a new school year. Each day brought forth a new act with students and faculty finding their rolls in the complicated plot of school life. This edition of the Spotlight is presented as a program which you may keep forever to remind you of the personalities and scenes which have made this year's drama great.We dedicate Every Broadway production would play a one night stand if it were not for the genius of its director. One member of our faculty has been an outstanding influence in the productions which E.C.H.S. turns out—its students. Because of her deep understanding of human problems, because of her vivid interpretations of Shakespeare and Tennyson, because of her theatrical guidance our Junior year, because of her friendly tips on health, which have endeared her to our hearts; we do dedicate this 1955 edition of the Spotlight to MISS MINNIE JOHNSTON 6Administration To the members of the board of trustees we extend our expressions of thanks and appreciation. Although we seldom have direct contact with these citizens, their wise and skillful planning makes our daily life in school more pleasant. Seated, left to right: E. Wilson Smith, Mrs. 0. F.

The following Friday, however, the boys went into action against Jacksonville and were victorious by a score of 33-0. Then on to Washington! A crowd of E.C.H.S. supporters followed the teom there to see the 6-6 tie. During the next two weeks the Jackets mowed down Roanoke Rapids and Edcnton. Hurricane trouble again, this time in the form of Hazel, caused a delay of the Greenville game until Monday night. This time we had a 7-7 tie. In our Homecoming Game, Kinston went down to defeat 26-6. Our chance for the conference championship depended on beating New Bern, but the best we could do was a 13-13 tic. The Jackets ended the season with wins over the Chowan College J.V.'s and Hertford and with the season's only defeat in the Durham High game.
