TO THIS WE DEDICA TE -
To the concept of DEMOCRACY we dedicate not only our past
which is portrayed in the pages of this book but also our future in
the hope that this collection of memories will remind us of the spirit
of freedom we possess as wc, the senio l .. ' k
adult world of responsibility.

WHEN THE CLASS OF 1963 MARCHES ITS 6 TONS,
The Class of 1963 entered F.C.H.S. in the fall of
1959 with 134- members. Senior initiation settled us
down, and we were able to organize into a class. We
elected Student Council representatives, Kathy Higgs,
Ron Manock, and Don Boyer, and then chose Elaine
Beecher, Judy Hagaman, and Joyce Nannen to lead
us. Our first Homecoming was an exciting event with
Sharon Collister and Judy Hagaman as Queen At-
tendants. We concluded the year by hosting the an-
nual Freshman Eighth-Grade Dance.
As sophomores, we returned joyfully for another
memorable year. Mike Manuel, JoAnn VVolfgang and
Sharon Collister were selected as class officers, and
Star Watkins was added to our representation on the
Student Council. We worked hard on our Homecom-
ing float, "Fly to Victory," and received top honors
as a reward with Joyce Nannen and Judy Hagaman
representing us as sophomore Queen Attendants.
The activities of our junior year kept us well oc-
cupied. Sharon Collister was our new Student Council
addition, and under the guidance of Bob McCrae,
Carolyn Sheckler, Judy Hagaman, and Carl Barna-
bee, we devised an unforgettable Homecoming. In
addition to our festive decorations, we again won
first place with our fioat, "Potters in Dutch," with Star
Watkins and Judy Hagarnan attending the Home-
coming royalty. The next step was to present our
Junior Play, entitled "The Little Dog Laughed." After
holding various fund raising projects, we were able to
host a unique prom styled as "Showboat."
Returning for our final year, we had decreased our
number to 90 seniors. Ardently we secured our posi-
tion as upperclassmen by initiating the freshmen under
the theme of "Westward Hof' Next on the agenda was
our last Homecoming of high school days. We topped
our previous floats by building a spectacular showboat
with the theme of "Show 'Emf' and once more re-
ceived chief recognition. Ed Warner and Carolyn
Shecklenwere our King and Queen, accompanied by
Senior attendants Mary Jane Gronewold and Elaine
Beecher. On December 22, we entertained many gay
couples at the Christmas Dance, complete with Santa
himself. Our applause winning Senior Play, "The
Night of January 16th," was presented in April. When
the headaches of our final semester tests ceased, we
were honored at Baccalaureate and Class Day. Follow-
ing these procedures, we said our farewells, received our
diplomas, and departed to face the future, taking
with us only our memories of four wonderful years

JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS

The class of 1964 gaily filed into the midst of
F.C.H.S. in the terminal days of August. Their Hrst
assignment was to obey the seniors, who invited them
to an initiation party in September. Their chief con-
cern was electing class ofiicers and Student Council
representatives. Of the 136 freshmen, Linda Watkins,
Charlene Dicks, and Tom Kepple were chosen to lead
the class, while Paula Frank, Bob Stevens, and Bonnie
Welch volunteered as delegates to the Council. Betsy
Fogliani and Paula Frank were their Homecoming
attendants in October. To conclude the year's activi-
ties, the freslnnen entertained the eighth graders at
the annual F reshlnan-Eighth Grade Dance.
Beginning their second year at F.C.H.S., the sopho-
mores acknowledged Pete Banys, Linda Suydam, and
John Whited as directors for the year. The Home-
coming royalty of 1961 was accompanied by sophomore

attendants Jean Vaira and Bonnie Welch. Besides work-
ing on their studies, the class of '64 also managed to
earn money by serving the alumni banquet.
In the fall of 1962, the class returned to F.C.H.S.
as upperclassmen eager to begin a year of joy and
diligence. Guided by their all male oflicers, the juniors
were able to produce a delightful Homecoming of
fantasy entitled "Disneyland" They were also com-
petent enough to erect the second place float, labeled
"Beat 'Em!" Betty Michela and Linda Watkins
attended the Homecoming Queen. In November, the
junior class presented their excellent play, "The
Chocolate Soldierf' and next began raising money to
finance their oncoming prom. The gala affair, held in
May, was an elaborate and exciting evening which
will .endure forever in the memories of those who

THE WORLD OF A SOPHOIVIORE:

The fall of 1961 found the class of 1965 invading
the barriers of F.C.H.S. with 156 new members. All
the class members were required to take part in the
customary initiation exercises before becoming full-
fledged Farmers. The usual adjustments to high school
life were attained, and then the freshmen prepared
themselves for the coming months. Their class presi-
dent was Roger Stranz, assisted by Mary Ellen Lenzi
and Becky Baudino. From the names submitted for
Student Council representatives, Jim Nelson, Becky
Baudino, and Sue Gronewold were selected. The 1961
Homecoming Queen was accompanied by freshmen
attendants Nancy Fogg and Sue Gronewold. Their

sophomores. Their first class meeting placed Bar

October found the class laying the foundations f
their homecoming float, "They'll Never Make It,
which obtained a third place rating. In December t
sophomores were busy selling Christmas 'cards an
wrapping paper to satisfy the class depository. T
class was later called upon to designate their choi
of class rings for the following year. Serving the junio
Senior Prom closed the sophomore year with pleasa

Miss Marianne Clinch
Iowa State University, B.S., M.S.
Hundreds of students who have attended F.C.H.S. in
the past 34 years will long remember Miss Clinch and her
dedicated service to our school. Miss Clinch, who has at-
tended numerous summer workshops to keep abreast of
the changing techniques, has provided us with an up-to-
date home economics department.
Miss Louise Mackey
Illinois State Normal University, B.S.
"Tempus fugitf' time flies, is a phrase that reminds
F.C.I-I.S. Latin students of their Hrst day in Latin class.
Time does fly as one looks back on the 15 years of Miss
Mackey's' devotion in teaching world history and Latin at
Farmington High and her 10 years of additional teaching in
other public schools.
Mrs. Ann Flemming White '
East Texas State College and Texas Womanfsg
University, B.S., M.A ,
Thirty-four years of teaching experience is symbolic of
Mrs. White's dedication to the teaching profession. Although
Mrs. White has not taught as many years in Farmington
as her colleague, Miss Clinch, she has carried on for the
past 14 years at F.C.H.S. the fine 'tradition of using mod-
ern methods in teaching home economics.

The Voyageur, which began on its journey toward
completion in June, 1962, when the stall' ventured to
Hannibal, Missouri, to choose the bookls cover and
theme, has now become a reality. After many hours
of struggling with layouts, creating copy, and de-
vising running heads, our final copy was in, and the
worry was over. However, when the worry was over,
the fun was over also. The tedious hours of work
represented not only a struggle to meet the deadlines,
but also an opportunity to promote the friendly com-
panionships shared among the members of the V oya-
guer staFf. As we recap the memories stored in this
book, we realize that the lockers are closed for the
final time, the thunder of pep rallies has faded for-
ever from the gym, and the lunchroom crowd pushes
forward no longer. As students go their separate ways,
we hope that the 1963 Voyagrur will serve as a
cherished record of 'fthe year we will never forgetf'
Now the Voyageur stands quietly in the twilight of
1963 waiting for another year, another set of pupils,
and another set of memories and traditions.
