Senior Class History
We, the Senior Classof 1953 have finally reached our goal--the top of the ladder in our school years
at F.C.l'l.S. The going wasn't easy, neither was it unpleasant. Let us tell you of the years that make
up the steps in our ladder of success at Fluvanna.
Our class was the first to receive the privilege of Fluvanna's new five year high school system and
although many grumbled about an extra year to go to school, few would trade these five wonderful years
for anything else in the world.
We started our career at Fluvanna on September 12, 1948 as the first eighth grade class. Our fifty
greenhorns were under the supervision of Mrs. Josephine Snead and Miss Lillian Holland.
Class officers for the eighth grade were:
President: Hamilton Creasy
Vice-Pres: Bobby Gianniny
, Secretary: Catherine Marks
Reporter: Linda Lee Johnson
Abig thrill came to the eighth graders when we won the magazine contest and the class prize--a big
box of Hershey bars. Miss Holland's homeroom collected the most money.
Under Mrs. Josephine Snead's leadership the eighth graders published their newspaper, "Twix 'N'
Tween", every two weeks.
Not allowed to participate in sports that year, the eighth graders had regular physical education and
health lecture classes each day.
As freshmen our class of forty-eight education enthusiasts were under the leadership of Mrs. Barbara
Lacy and Mrs. Eleanor Talley. During this year we no longer felt as if we were mice in a cage being
experimented with for we had passed our experimental stage--the eighth grade was over.
Our class officers elected at the beginning of the freshmen year were:
President: Mary Lou Bell
Vice-Pres: Catherine Marks
Secretary: Anne Talley
Treasurer: Roy Loving
Reporter: Jimmy Lee
Several of our boys made the football and the basketball teams. A
Mildred Patterson won the Magazine Contest sponsored by the athletic association.
Several of our class members won prizes at the county fair.
By the sophomore year, we had dwindled to 36. Miss Phyllis Mann and Mr. John Johnson supported
us in all our undertakings. Under their leadership we really began to show the school what we could
do. Our boys starred in football, baseball, and basketball: several of our girls played basketball on
the varsity girls' team.
Jean Thomas made the league play cast.
Hazel Bell and Linda Lee Johnson both won a first year's credit in music. '
Linda Lee Johnson was chosen asa 4-H Club All-Star during the annual summer short course at Blacks-
Every club saw our group represented in member or officers. We fumished officers for Boys' Social,
F.F.A. , and 4-H Club and members for the F.F.A. forestry team, Jimmy Perkins was secretary for the
The boys stole the show our sophomore year by electing an all-boy slate of officers:
President: Roy Loving
Vice-Pres: Jimmy Perkins
Secy-Tres: Bobby Gianniny
Reporter: Jerry Jones
As Juniors in Mrs. Virginia Snead's homeroom we thirty-four succeeded in becoming outstanding.
Plans for our annual were made in the iunior class and the editor, Linda Lee Johnson and business
manager, Bobby Gianniny were elected. Since there were only eight seniors that year, we helped them
carry out many activities that otherwise would have been impossible for them to enioy.
Our boys again starred in football, baseball, and basketball, our girls comprised nearly the whole
varsity basketball team.
During the summer, Jean Thomas was made a 4-H All Star.
Jimmy Perkins was elected president of the S.C.A.
Many of our girls entered the beauty contest sponsored by the F.H.A.
Hazel Bell and Linda Lee Johnson won a second year's music credit, Hazel was allowed to keep the
cup, however, as her practice hours had been longer.
The busy iuniors elected the following officers:
President: Roy Loving
Vice Pres: Opal Goodman
Secretary: Helen Anderson
Treasurer: Linda Lee Johnson
Reporter: Julia Miller
AsSeniors, ourclassof thirty-three "Persevering pupils" under Mrs. Virginia Snead's leadership, has
finally reached the top of the ladder, and the time draws near for us to go our separate ways.
Our Class officers this year are:
President: Jimmy Perkins
Vice-Pres: Jerry Jones
Secretary: Louise Kent
Treasurer: Lindsay Browning
Reporter: Hilda Hensley
The annual staff was appointed and its members have been working diligently all year.
The top honors of the year were:
Bob Bland and Mary Lou Bell were elected State Officers in the Hi-Y Club.
Mary Lou Bell was made 4-H All-Star.
-Roy Loving was elected S.C,A. president. r
The class on December l2, i953 presented the Senior Play "January Thaw", a Michael Todd produc-
tion. Under the able direction of Miss Viola Shields and Mrs. Eleanor Talley, the play was an
Many of our girls made the girls' basketball team. Hazel Bell, Virginia Williams, and Nancy
Melton were on the first team: Elizabeth Cutchins and Helen Anderson made the second team, Julia
Miller and Mamie Pearce were on the third team.
Thisyearthe "Flying Fluco's" football team set a new record by winning five games and losing only
three. The Senior boys support i ng the team in this achievement were Jimmy Perkins, Roy Loving,
Lindsay Browning, Bobby Gianniny, Eddie McNeal, and Irvin Wood.
Our days together at F.C.H.S. have been filled with golden hours of study and play. There have
been disappointments, of course, but there is no bittemess for what "might have been". These have
been years that we shall not soon forget. Together we have had good times and have worked hard.
As we go our separate ways whether it be on a battlefield in Korea, to pounding a typewriter in an
office, teachingagroup of grade children, or making homes of our own, we shall always retain in our
hearts our precious memories of F . C . H . S.

For many years, it has been a tra-
dition that the graduating class leave a
gift to the school.
In previous years, classes have left
such useful and enjoyable gifts as an out-
door fireplace, an electric clock for the
main hall, stage furniture, concrete ben-
ches for the lawn, stage flags, and a drink-
This year's class, after surveying the
needs of the school, is considering as a
possible gift a tape recorder, a record
player, or a public address system for
It is the sincere hope of the Class of
1953 that their final choice of a gift will
be used and enjoyed by the entire student
body in years to come.

A Theiillers, Class llf 1952
The Senior Class of 1952 was the "in-between" class between the regular
eleven year system and the new twelve year system. Since it had only eight
members it was a class too small to publish an annual. We, the class of '53
think these Fluvannians are due some recognition, however, and are dedicat-
ing this page to them.
George Crummette was chosen president of the '52 class, Julia Martin was
vice-gpresident, Charles Matthews was secretaryand treasurer,Mildred Patterson
was S.C .A. representative . Everyone had something special to do as the class
was so small.
Their class play, "Aaron Sl ick from Punkin Crick" starred Charles Matthews
as Aaron. On Memorial Day, the Senior Prom was held in the gym which was
decorated in purple and silver.
With Miss Mann as sponsor the little class of '52 was able to accomplish
big things. '
The Seniors of '52 have now taken their place in the world. George and'
Mildred Jean are attending college, Barclay, Stuart, and Lewis are farming
in the county, Julia is working in Richmondpand Lorelle is working in Florida .
Charles Nlatthews and William Keck, who was a postgraduate last year, are
both in the Air F6rce.

Our careerasF.C.H.S. students began one rainy day in 1949. We were
immediately taken under the protective wings of Mrs. Josephine Snead and
Miss Lillian Holland, and soon we became accustomed to our new environ-
ment. Roger Goodson was elected our class president. Highlightsgof the year
included Barbara Morris and Roger Goodson as finalists in the public speak-
ing contest, Hilda Dudley as a member of the Senior Play Cast, and Roger
Goodson, Kenneth Webb, and Bobby 'Jones as-members of The League Play

Agreat addition to Fluvanna County High School on September 15, 1950
was the eighth grade class which was destined to do great things by the time
they were Sophomores.
One of the most important events of our history was the fact that "Miss
Fluvanna of 1952", Gayle Edgerton , was from our class. Also Nancy
Snoddy, from our class, won second place.
ln athletics we added many members to the baseball, basketball, and
football teams. Three of the seven cheerleaders of 1951, Charlotte Cobb ,
Gayle Edgerton, and Nancy Snoddy added to our recognition. This year,
along with these, three more have been added, Jane Proffitt, Beverly
Tilman, and Bobby Velle.

Can you picture a group of seventy-three excited boys and girls? They were the eighth graders
of F.C.H.S. on September 9, 1952. This was our first day of school at F.C.H.S. and everything
seemed awfully negate us. ' '
Since thisgwas the first year all five grades had been to F.C.H.S. together, there was such a large
. number of students that one group qfeeighth graders had to make their home in the library.
. A- ,ugh 3 V
The eighth grade was distded into three groups. Mrs. Eleanor Talley's group took band the first
twelve weeks. Miss Mildred Charlton's class took art, and Miss Viola Shields class took home
economics and agriculture. y

A band is an important factor in making people happy. Whena group is down-hearted, someone
says, "strike up the band" and suddenly everyone becomes light-hearted. '

third placesand was classed as the grade "B" band at the Apple Harvest Festival Parade in Char:
