THE G-A RECORD Published by the Class of 1956 Galesburg-Augusta High School Galesburg, Michigan Dedication In dedicating our annual to our Superintendent, Stanley Benjamin, we, the class of 1956, wish to express our gratitude for his kind guidance which will better fit us for living successful lives in the years to come. Within the past few years under his guiding hand the community has witnessed the uniting of two small schools into one strong body, our Galesburg-Augusta School. The enthusiasm and loyalty which he displays at every one of our athletic contests symbolizes his interest in us. We should become better citizens for having known him. Mr. Benjamin, Supt. of Schools Mr. Sauser, Ass ' t Supt. of Schools Mrs. Wheaton, Secretary 4 Mr. Wesley R. Burrell at the “mike " is no ordinary “disc jockey”. He directs all our activities from this nerve center, and everything from humorous advertisements for our suppers and parties to crisp directions for disaster drills originate here. Galesburg- Augusta High School revolves around this panel and around this man, who is not only our principal and director of curricular ac¬ tivities, but our teacher, advisor and friend. 5 Mrs. Edna Hilliard Miss Hazel Haynes 6 Mr. Andrew Beam Social Science and General Science Mrs. Flossie Wheaton Home Economics and Civics Driver Training Mrs. Ruth Burrell Study Hall and Library Mr. Alfred Niemi Mr. Donald Sackrider Agriculture Industrial Arts 7 SHIRLEY ALLAN DONNA ALLAN " Don " Paper 4, Commercial Club 2-3-4, F.H.
