With sincere appreciation for the friendship and guidance
she has shown us, we, the Senior Class dedicate the 1954
annual to our friend and teacher, Mrs. J. Allen Altizer. She
has won a place of love and respect in our hearts and will
linger in our memory as one who has been an inspiration to
us through the most important years of our lives.

At last! 1949! That was the year we entered high school. We were very fortunate in that
we were the first class to have the opportunity of five years of high school at Floyd. Also, during
this year of '49 and '50, we were fortunate to have Mrs. Dobyns and Mrs. Simpkins as our ad-
visors. Our officers were: President, Charles KingreagVice-President, Freeda Hall, Secretary,
Treasurer, and Reporter, Erma Thompson, S. C. A. Representatives, Bobby Agnew and Charlotte
Parrick. It was during this year that we tried our hand at publishing an issue of the school paper.
In '50 and '51 we became freshmen and had as our advisors Mrs. Rainey and Mr. William-
son. Our officers were: President, Ravanal Nixon, Vice-President, Freeda Hall, Secretary,
Charles Kingrea,Treasurer, Bobby Agnew, Reporter, Margaret Underwood, S. C. A. Represent-
atives, Charlotte Parrick and Lucy Boyd. '
We were sophomores in '51 and '52 and had again as our advisors Mrs. Rainey and Mr.
Williamson. Our officers were: President, Charles Kingrea, Vice-President, Vivian Goad, Sec-
retary and Treasurer, Ileda Shelor, Reporter, Joyce Pugh, S. A. Representatives, Catherine
Hazelwood and Elbert Talley.
Entering our junior year in September, '52, we felt very important and began our most in-
teresting school activities. They were the Junior Play "Gown of Glory" directed by Mrs. Moricle
and Mrs. Altizer,and a trip to Lakeside to entertain the seniors. We also raised money to invest
on our trip when we were seniors.
Our advisor was Mrs. Altizer and our officers were: President, Charles Kingrea, Vice-
President, Freeda Hal1,Secretary,Ravanal Nixon, Treasurer, Bobby Agnew, S. C. A. Represent-
atives, James Lawson and Ravanal Nixon, Reporter, Vivian Goad.
In '53 and '54 came the year we had been waiting for. We were seniors and again Mrs.
Altizer was our sponsor. The senior class officers were: President, Walker Burdette, Vice-
President, Ravanal Nixon, Secretary, Doris Pugh, Treasurer, Vivian Goad, Reporter, James
Lawson, S. C. A. Representatives, Ileda Shelor and Rodney Thomas.
Activities for that year were highlighted byza presentation of the "Seventeenth Summer'
sponsored by Mrs. Howard and Mrs. Altizer, and a sight-seeing trip to New York which was
partially financed by magazine sales.
To Mrs. Altizer we wish to express our gratitude and thanks for being a faithful and patient
So ends our record in brief of five years at Floyd High School.
Dr. and Mrs. Charles Harmon
Request the Honor of Your Presence
at the 10th Reunion
Class of 1954
Floyd High School
June 2, 1964
I arrived at the Harmon estate and after much driving around found a place to park the old
green Ford between a Cadillac and a big red convertible. My classmates must have done well for
themselves! I hadn't seen or heard from some of them in years and was very anxious to see my
Patsy Knowles met me at the door. She's Charles' able assistant.
Charles and his wife were first in the receiving line. Charles met his wife while studying
tropical diseases in Africa.
There was something strangely familiar about the handsome man and his lovely wife next
in line. They were none other than Mr. and Mrs. Charles Kingrea. He is now Superintendent of
Floyd County Schools.
Next in line was Alice Dickerson, girls' basketball coach at Floyd High. Her girls haven't
lost a game in five years.
As ljourneyed on, James Lawson greeted me. Besides being the youngest mayor Floyd
ever had, he owns a successful television company.
Freeda Hall who is editor of The Floyd Press was everywhere interviewing the celebrities.
Of course, the first on her list was our Senior Sponsor, Mrs. Altizer. She seems delighted that
she had recently been chosen the !'Prettiest Grandmother" of the year.
Wilbert Midkiff was next on Freeda's list. He, along with his ten-gallon hat, had come all
the way from his 5,000 acre ranch in Texas for the reunion.
Coming in wearing a good-looking Wac uniform was Lillie Howell. She is married to a
soldier and now is a recruiting officer.
