Soon the class of ’52 will have ended their high school studies and will go out to seek whatever fortune that awaits them. But first come with me and let us review the years to 1948 when we, the dignified Seniors, entered Valdese High for the first time. We were green and excited and tried to find out what was going on. We soon did! Our teachers for the first year were Mr. Honeycutt, principal, Mrs. Honeycutt, Mr. Cotten, Mr. Donald Johnson, Miss Ghigo, Mr. and Mrs. Burton Barger, Mrs. Braswell, Mr. Gourley, Miss McNaull, Mrs. Moore and Mrs. Wilson. When our Sophomore year came, we were more settled and ready for new studies. We did part of our studying in some of the eighteen new rooms which had been added during the summer. Some of the space was occupied by the 7th and 8th grades which were taught by Mrs. Grill, Mrs. Mull, Mr. Charles Owens and Mrs. Eleanor Brinkley. It was this year that we welcomed Mr. John L. Johnson as our new principal. Other new teachers were Miss Jane Caudell, Miss Eloise Marlowe, Mrs. Mary Reep, Mr. Leo Brevard, and Mr. H. D. Moretz. Our Junior year brought new activities. The Dramatics Club, the Allied Youth, and a French Club were formed. Our most important task was the sponsoring of the Junior-Senior Banquet. The new 7th and 8th grade teachers for this year were Mr. Ralph Clark, and Miss Beverly Ann McDaniel. Our new teachers were Miss Ada Lee Randall, Mr. I. C. Wilson, Mr. George Wilson, Miss Betty Ann Clement and Mrs. Leo Brevard. Now the great year that we have been waiting for is here and we, as dignified Seniors, take our place of leadership over the lower classmen. We still have on our working caps, trying our best to make our Washington trip a success. The teachers this year are Mr. John Johnson, Mr. and Mrs. Burton Barger, Mrs. Braswell, Mr. Brinkley, Miss Clement, Mr. Moretz, Miss Ada Lee Randall, Mr. I. C. Wilson, Mr. George F. Wilson, Miss Anita Ghigo, Mrs. Brevard, and Mrs. Wilson. Our new teachers are Mr. Charles, Mr. Clontz and Mrs. Keller. There are 61 members in the Senior Class. We are each eagerly looking forward to the future with open hearts for new and better opportunities. Some will go to college, while others have other plans such as keeping America going in the wonderful liberties of freedom. May the years to come hold in our hearts a tender spot for the four years we spent at Valdese High School. BY KATHLEEN LOWMAN, Class Historian SENIOR CLASS RING Symbolizing the " Class of 1952” the class ring is gold, set with an oval-shaped blue onyx. Inscribed around the set is " Francis Garrou High School, Valdese.” On one side is the school mascot, the " Tiger,” and on the other side is the Waldensian Monument—thus representing an outstanding symbol of the school and the town.

He came to Valdese direct from Lenoir Rhyne College where he gradauted with a major in physical education. Coach Barger hails from China Grove, N.

After two and one-half years at Lenoir Rhyne, where he played baseball and football, Coach Barger served in the army air corps for four years. He returned to Lenoir Rhyne in January 1945 and played two more seasons of baseball, being voted on the all-state team both years.

HAS MANY MEANINGS TOWN HISTORY The town of Valdese was settled in 1893 by Waldensians who came from northern Italy, dose to the French border. Many people believe that the Waldensians came to America because they were persecuted by the Catholics, but that is not true. It is true that the Waldensians, ever since Peter Waldo established their religion in the 12 th century, were persecuted for hundreds of years, but that had stopped long before they came to this country. The primary reason why they left their homes in the old country was because of over-population. Some Waldenses came in contact with the Morganton Development Company. Finding that land could be bought cheaply, some deeded to move. The first group, consisting of eleven families, left the old country in the spring of 1893. The second group of more than fifty families left in the fall of the same year. When they reached Valdese, there was no town or depot, and they were in a new, strange country, among strange people, who spoke a language they could not understand. The eleven families, who had come in the spring, had made a crop. They had also constructed a big wooden building and a few small shacks. Most of the new comers stayed in the big building. Although they were crowded, no one complained. The first thing the) did was to start a saw-mill. Everyone helped to cut timber, log it to the mill, and saw it up into lumber. They built a big oven for a community bakery. One family would tend to the baking one day, and another family woidd do the work the next day. They started crops. The next year a church of stone was built and a wooden building for a school room. Soon the community grew, but the Waldenses discovered that they were not much better off than they had been in the old country. One day Francis Garrou and his brother John (Bo-bo) were talking and agreed that they should have some kind of industry if they were to progress. They went to Newton, Catawba County, and later to Manning, South Carolina, to work in the hosiery mill and to learn about the machinery and business. The first mill was made of timber cut from nearby farms and covered with corrugated metal. It employed twenty persons. The need for delivery of yarn caused a depot to be built by the railroad. A new bakery was built and the bread sent all over the state. Gradually the little shacks gave way to better homes and the thriving community grew and developed. Today we enjoy the benefits and blessings of the following institutions and industries. Churches of various denominations. The Public Library. The Community Center. The U. S. Post Office. The Valdese News. Colonial Theater. The Northwestern Bank. Valdese Building and Loan. Waldensian Baking Company. The Textile Plants. The Hosiery Plants. SCHOOL BOARD MR. A.
