How- ever expressed our fears soon subsided, and we got off to a good start with Mrs. Snead and Miss Patton as our homeroom teachers. Many went out for sports and some made varsity teams. With the help of the Juniors we won the Magazine Contest That first year we elected the following officers: President: Harriett White Vice-President: Francis Farris Secretary: Faye Pippin Reporter: Julia Holland Clara Pace received honorable mention in the Reading Contest of the Literary League, and Grant Cosner made the minstrel. Harriett White received a bronze F. SOPHOMORES As Sophomores, we felt up on the world! Under Miss Bransford and Mr. Costello, we elected the following officers: President: Faye Pippin Vice-President: Grant Cosner Secretary and Treasurer: Marianne Cosner Reporter: Betty Jane Griffin Evelyn Payne and Thomas Rutherford represented the school at the Literary meet in Charlottesville. A number of boys, including Jim Harris, Bill Keck and Lewis Loving, made the football team, and several girls participated in basketball, with Harriet White as captain. Our class contributed more members to the Minstrel this year. JUNIORS Just think, we were drawing close to graduation when we assembled in our home rooms under Mr. Costello and Mr. Johnson. We started off with a bang by electing the follow- ing officers: President: Lewis Loving Vice-President: Dean Garner Secretary and Treasurer: Betty Jane Griffin Reporter: Grant Cosner Evelyn Payne, Julia Holland and Betty Jane Griffin received the bronze F. Harriet White received the silver F. The basketball team was represented by Juniors, in- cluding Helen Kidd, Harriet White, Evelyn Payne, Julia Holland, Gladys Morris, Mildred Breeden, Agnes Penn and Eula Marks. The great day of excitment occured when our class rings arrived. Two Juniors won in the Beauty Contest, first place to Frances McGehee and second to Harriet White. We made large contributions of talent to the band and Glee Club, a nd again more Juniors were added to the Minstrel as end- men and as a part of the chorus. Eleanor Greene played for the Minstrel and Lucille Hasher became the regular school pianist. Harriet White spoke for the school at the Bankers Conservation Program. The Safety Patrol was introduced with William Keck as Captain and Lewis Loving as Lieutenant. To top the year off, we had a very success- ful Junior -Senior Party. SENIORS Gee! Finally, that great day arrived! Our first day of being Seniors ! We were all combined into one homeroom under Mrs. Virginia Snead. After the first week of school, we elected the following officers: President: Vice-President: Secretary: Treasurer: Reporter: Faye Pippin William Keck Marianne Cosner Betty Jane Griffin Sandra Williams The following week Evelyn Payne was elected Editor-in-Chief of the FLUVANNUAL with William Keck as Associate Editor. The following were chosen as other editors: Business Manager: Art Editor: Literary Editor: Photo Editors: Sports Editor: Subscription Manager Mildred Breeden Shirley Payne Sandra Williams Lucille Hasher and Eleanor Greene Harriet White Allen Griffin For the SCA the Senior Class furnished the President, Harriet White, and the Vice- President, Evelyn Payne. Seven out of eight cheerleaders were Seniors. Another event of this year was the Beauty Contest in which Harriet White was crowned Queen and the Senior Class was well represented in the finals. We were quite proud of Lewis Loving and William Keck, the only seniors on the football team, and the girls ' basketball team really did shine! Evelyn Payne, as captain, and Helen Kidd, as manager, were well supported by other seniors on the team. The Mon- ogram Club also was well represented by the Seniors with Evelyn Payne, Harriet White, Lewis Loving, Joan Rea, Julia Holland, William Keck, Eula Marks, Mildred Breeden and Helen Kidd. This year a new club was added to our extra-curricular activities - The Future Teachers of America, sponsored by Mr. J. N. Johnson with Lucille Hasher as its President and Betty Jane Griffin as District President. Also introduced this year was a new system of publishing the school paper in the English Classes with Julia Holland as Editor-in- Chief. Mr. G. R. Edgerton introduced an orchestra composed of Mr. Edgerton, Lucille Hasher, Eleanor Greene, Agnes Penn and Betty Goodwin as vocalist. The Senior Class contributed Library: F. H. A. : Piano Class: F.

A. : Glee Club: presidents to the following clubs: Eleanor Greene Betty Jane Griffin Harriet Bell Lewis Loving Agnes Penn Harriet Bell Lucille Hasher Sandra Williams This year Mildred Breeden was elected president of the Jolly-Six Federation and Evelyn Payne, Historian. The plays, the clubs, the many programs, the athletic teams and games, the parties and dances - even the classes and study halls - have left us with innumerable memor- ies. However happy we are at being graduated, it is certainly with mixed feelings that we leave FCHS. It will never take more than a strain of " Anchors Aweigh " to recall to our minds our very happy four years and a host of fine friends, but then " should auld acquaintance be forgot? " Senior Class Prophesy We quote the following items from the Richmond Times-Dispatch owned and edited by the famous editor.

The usual fright at the bigness and strangeness of high school was our lot for the first few weeks here, but even as early as that first year we began making our mark in the events of FCHS. Athletes we had in abundance, we furnished participants in the league play, our budding artists blossomed forth with pictures good enough for state competition, and every club in school had some of our class as members and officers. As Sophomores we really began to make our SOPHOMORES Julia miller Nancy melton Eddie mcneal Roy Loving Helen Lewis weight felt. We furnished personnel for the football team in great numbers, and the girls ' and boys ' basketball teams saw our group starring on the hardwood. James Thomas and Linda Johnson made fine contributions to the 4-HClub. We furnished officers for Boys ' Social, the Secretary for the S. C. A. , officers for F. F. A. , team members for the F. F. A. forestry team. The officers of the class this year were all boys: President Roy Loving Vice-President Jimmy Perkins Secretary and Treasurer Bobby Gianniny Reporter Jerry Jones FRESHMEN ' MB mmi o n | M v— r V -m cv ft V’ t J 1 1 f - I J ' r o v it s!li ‘ j WI ’’ " -V- i i - Cl it , Q ■ ft fl gj o v, y L_ FRESHMAN HISTORY Now that we ' re Freshmen we can look back on our Eighth Grade experiences where we had mingled feelings of pride and skepticism. Our fears and awe the first day of our high school life are indescribable. Of course we soon adapted ourselves, with the aid of Miss Holland and Mrs. Josephine Snead, our sponsors. We grew to love F. C. H. S. and to cherish the friends and experiences which we shall treasure always. Some of the high spots of our lives as Eight Graders included the election of our officers who were: President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Reporter Roger Goodson David Johnson Virginia Proffitt Sylvia Gentry Jean Life We were proud of Hilda Dudly who had a part in the Senior Play and Kenneth Webb, Bobby Jones and Roger Goodson, all of whom had parts in the League Play. Also two students received school " F " ' s and two plac- ed in the Virginia Banker ' s Association Public Speaking Contest. We were very disappointed because we weren ' t eligible for the Minstrel or the varsity teams but now as Freshmen we are participating in both. Eighth Graders were not lacking in our school clubs either, for lots of us became officers and active mem- bers.

Now, a year later, when we are about to become Sophomores, we can look back at our Freshmen year with satisfaction. Election of class officers found- - President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Reporter David Johnson Kenneth Webb Sylvia Gentry Edna Loving Bobby Saylor Our sponsors were Mrs. Talley and Mr. Costello. As Freshmen we could really spread our wings and see how we compared with the upper classmen. The result was that we had now become quite conceited! ! For we had members on the football, basketball and baseball teams. We had others from our grand class in the Minstrel, League Play and as officers or members of every club in school. We ' ve given you a preview of our two years here at dear old Fluvanna High. Next year. We ' ll be back as Sophomores, and if we have our sayso, " flying high " . So watch for the class of ' 54. Eighth m EIGHTH GRADE HISTORY VE CAME FROM ALL DIRECTIONS, NORTH, SOOTH EAST AND VEST NOT ONE OF US IN ALL THE GROUP COULD SAY WHICH ONE WAS BEST THE FIRST DAY THAT SCHOOL OPENED OH! HORRORS! VHAT A DREAD! MOST OF US WERE SCARED TO DEATH FROM TOM AND SUE TO NED VE KNEW NOTHING OF THE PRINCIPLES OR HOV THE SCHOOL WAS RON ALL VE WANTED WAS TO LEARN AND HAVE A LITTLE FUN- WE LEARNED OUR A B C ' S ANEW, THEY SHOW OOR GRADES YOO KNOW, WE LEARNED TO JUMP AT EACH COMMAND, AND NOT TO BE QUITE SO SLOW- GOT ACQUAINTED WITH DEMERITS AND OUR TEACHERS FOND AND DEAR AND NOW WE WILL STAY WITH YOU ALL THE REMAINDER OF THE YEAR. Not a flock of sheep without a leader was more lost than we were the first day of school. How the upper classmen must have grinned to see us milling around uncer- tainly not knowing where to go nor why! Then kind souls in the form of big brothers and sisters took us in hand and led us around. Soon assembly was called and we were assigned to our homerooms, introduced to our homeroom teachers and given our schedules. It was until then that we felt sure we had gotten off the bus at the right stop. Grade We settled down to work and things were uneventful until the football season opened, football games were new to most of us. We had learned the school song and some of the yells, by now, so we could sing and yell with everyone else. We were dis- appointed when we lost and happy when we won. Our parents had to become acquainted with the school, and on visiting day they were as lo ' st as we were on the first day. We were proud and happy to show off for our parents. In the Beauty Contest we got quite excited when elimination after elimination still showed Gayle second, and Nancy third. Our reports in high school were quite different from others we had received, but by that time we had grown quite accustomed to trying new things. Making bulletin boards and having them judged was fun, and we had a time racking our brains trying to think of new ideas for them. I n traditional form and according to parliamentary procedure, we elected Jane Proffit, President; Douglas Haden, Vice-President; Bobby Williams, Secretary; Beverly Tilman, Treasurer; and Henry Keck, Reporter. Weeks and months flew by, and each day we became more a part of the school. Need- less to say, we are enthusiastic about the coming year. We feel that we ' re going to make a " walloping good " freshman class. Every student in high school is a member of the Student Cooperative Association. Those shown above are the members of the S. C. A. Council which meets twice a month. These members are composed of the S. C. A. officers who are elected by the student body, homeroom representatives, club presidents and classroom pres- idents. Our officers are the following: President Harriett White Vice-President Evelyn Payne Secretary Jimmy Perkins Treasurer.
