"Best Directors" Award
The Board of Education was never in the spotlight of school functions, but we
felt their presence and their support in all our activities. Not too many actors
audition for their roles, but we could not have a good school system without
them. We appreciate these men who dedicate so much time to direct a superior
show and thus we honor them with the "Best Directors" award.

Senior Class History
Settle back and read this remarkable story
that began thirteen long years ago in 1974. It all
began at the Gage Public School in a small
room at the back of the auditorium under the
direction of Mrs. Peggy Stanford. Among the
12 bright-eyed kindergarteners, we see five
familiar faces we all know and love today: Shane
Ames, jeff Froage, Donnie Crow, Fred
Schroeder, and Susan Nine. Right from the
start anyone could tell this wasn't going to be an
everyday, ordinary, run-of-the-mill class.
Everyone knew this class was going to be dif-
ferent after the unsuccessful attempt to burn the
brick grade school building with chewing gum
foil and glass.
After passing kindergarten with an official
graduation program, we were under the strict teaching of Mrs. Wintress johnson. Another beloved member of the Senior Class today
was added under the name of jeff Wallis. As first graders, we also numbered 12. Who was to know that glorious gains lay in store for
these rambunctious first graders?
In 1976 our total number rose to 13 with Daren O'Brien making his blessed appearance in our class which was taught by Mrs. Opal
Treece who remains rather vague to us as we came to know our substitutes quite well.
On to third grade and how the years were flying by. Under the supervision of Mrs. Geneva Randolph we were taught patriotism
with a flag salute every morning.
Mrs. Dana Chapman was the fortunate fourth grade teacher. During this year another member of the Senior Class was added, nam-
ed Cindy Lee. We played the usual games children play - like tag, soccer, house and occasionally gagging and tying the unfortunate
sex to trees during noon recess and leaving them there.
During our fifth and sixth grade years we were instructed by Mr. Bill Hepner, Mrs. Sue I-Iepner, Mrs. jan Shafer and Mrs. Wanda
johnson. We had already begun to make our mark on the faculty and administration of the school, however, it was not good. We were
the first class, in goodness knows how long, not to be allowed to take a trip to Oklahoma City during these years. We were told it was
because times were hard and the money situation was bad. So we gladly offered to pay our own way but again were refused. We finally
came to the conclusion there must be something more than money involved.
At last we made it to the seventh and eighth grades where we encountered many changes. Moving up the stairs to junior high was an
exciting and trying experience. In the high school building we received little or no respect as seventh graders and became known as the
terrors of Gage junior High. During these two years substitute teachers were hard to come by, in fact, Mr. Froage was one of the few
teachers who was willing to take the risk and teach us. That must have something to do with the fact that he is now our sponsor for the
senior trip. Even though we were referred to as heathens, absolutely good for nothing, and a few other names that wouldn't be ap-
propriate to mention at this time, we finally graduated out of grade school and into high school with a total number of 15.
As our freshman year started we all were dreading that terrifying day we were to be initiated into high school, Bound to make the
best of it, we came to school that morning with a good attitude about freshman initiation. To our surprise and everyone else's we made
that day into the best one we had all year. This was one of the few days we were complimented by the faculty.
Our sophomore and junior years were blessed with few problems. Sure we played our practical jokes, fought and laughed as any class
would but somehow managed to stay out of major trouble. We made our way through several money making projects although we
didn't make much money. Gerald Bland was added to the class but some had left and now we were only l 1.
As our senior year rolled rapidly around we added the final member to the class, Lori Wickman, whom we gladly accepted, and
because two had left, we were at the mighty number of ten. We also gained a new sponsor, Mr. Mickey Stout and his wife Kim. They,
along with Mr. john Froage and his wife Carole, accompanied the seniors to the Fin and Feather Lodge at Lake Tenkiller and to Bran-
son, Missouri, for an adventurous and fun-filled week.
We worked hard this year hauling hay, selling jewelry, and working concessions. We have vowed never to sell another item as long as
we live. But all too soon our public schooling has come to an end, and now we must be departing to move on to new and better things.
We will miss this school, our teachers, and our friends, and we hope that we will be missed by them as well.
