Lets take a stroll down Memory Lane R
member In 1945 when we zoomed unto the flrst year
at G H S 7 Wasn t at fun actmg as nf we were grown
up? Most of us felt bug but looked small at G H S an
the seventh grade
The fall semester rolled around agam and the
eighth grade proved to be one of dashmg at the clang
of the bell to our next class Our twelve smart stu
dents who were elected to the Junnor Honor Society
were Elarne Arthur Betty Jo Brabham Nadine Cobb
Pattn Mathews Lenora Penmsn Maree Rodgers Ann
Peters Joyce Wilson Barbara Shea Leona Starling
Furman Wallace and Barbara Wnlson Betty Jo Brab
ham won the D A R award and Charlotte Thomas and
George Smuth were guven the cntuzenshlp awards
Then there was the tame when our magorettes
were fnrst elected We were really proud of Dara and
Edwuna as they strutted across the fneld for theur fsrst
tnme Follownng an theur footsteps were Blanche Sco
fleld Jean Allen and Earlene Phnllups Remember
how the gurls nn Home Ec would make everybody
hungry when they cooked one of thenr tempting
Few wnll forget the tradntnonal Sophomore pucnuc
at Magnesla Springs Fun wasnt lt7 The pranks we
played on those standing so-o-o close to the pool'
Remember when we took those Bnology field trups to
the Unnverslty the water plant and the Devll s Mull
Hopper? The Idea of course was to study biology
but well most of us qot sidetracked
Our gunuor year was a happy one wnth our goal
nearer In sught One of the mann hnghllghts of that
year was the successful Junior Play Many of
farthful juniors worked almost day and mght to
on Dangerous Nan McGrew Remember the
we had workung on the decoratuons for the prom
banquet? How the sensors talked about the deep sea
theme and the floor show at the prom' The junlors
who had compuled an average of mnety In theur soph
omore and jumor years and were outstanding IH char
acter servlce leadershnp and scholarshup were elected
to the Sensor Honor Socuety The Comet staff really
worked hard to ednt those few sssues of our newspaper
but they were well worth therr time and effort 1950
ourselves seniors The annual staff began work early
to put out the 1951 Hurrucane Band and chorus
gave a wonderful concert whnch really showed what
fune musuc talent we have un GH S Well we en
yoyed goung to the football games anyway'
Memorles of the 50 Homecommg football game
stnll lrnger the Alumnu Banquet and bonfire pep
rallues decorations floats parade and last but not
least the bug game Barbara Anne Wnlson and Orion
Davis made a wonderful kung and queen to reign over
the Homecommg Kid day brought us back agam to
our chuldhood days where most of us lost our dlgmty
only to regaln the grown up look for our graduation
1951 brought the best year of our school lrfe'
As we fnnlsh our stroll we remember all the
happy times that we the class of 1951 have had at
