The Yellowjacket Annual Staff
Ferris High School
We, the Ferris Annual Staff of the 1966 Yellowjacket, are honored and privileged to
dedicate our yearbook to Miss Juanita Spinks.
Throughout the years, she has given unselfishly of her time and energy as she has faithfully
served as Annual Adviser. The countless hours she has spent helping others are too numerous
to mention and her ability to inspire others is never-to-be forgotten. Her untiring efforts,
loyal devotion, and encouragement for all will forever leave a memory of a wonderful
teacher and person.
For these reasons and numerous others, we affectionately dedicate our Yearbook to you,
I ' 1 "Lk P55111
The 1966 YELLOWJACKET steps forward to give you a timely and memorable
account of your classmates, teachers, activities, personalities, and achievements
during this school year 1965-1966.
When those who follow us walk in our shoes, we hope this YEARBOOK will be-
come for you a treasured record of past experiences.

Mr. Floyd M. Collins
Mrs. Pat Riley
The faculty of this school has taught
you all we possibly can. 'We used the
latest books available, but life and prog-
ress are moving at such a great pace that
before you can become adjusted, one-
half of the things you know will become
obsolete or untrue. Unfortunately, we
cannot say which half. The common
rn-an of 'today was the crusader of yes-
terday. You must not terminate your
learning process with the closing of
school, but strive each day to keep abreast
of this constantly changing world.
High School Principal
Messages to Students
Your education is just beginning.
It is a process which will continue
throughout your life. Choose wisely
in the decisions you make, for each
one will help fashion your most
priceless possession, your character.

Mr. Nicholson is new to our school this year, but
he has done much to help us in our understanding

of physics and gain knowledge in the general field
of science. This course is usually taken to prepare
one for more advanced courses in high school.
MR. HORACE THOMPSON

In Art one learns to appreciate the beauty of lines, colors, and the
rhythm of forms. Students experience an inner peace and feel-

quiet of sketching.
Mathematics is a course one should take to broaden their under-
standing of the shape of the world and how it can expand from
day to day.
