THE SPINNER OF GASTONIA HIGH SCHOOL GASTONIA, N. C. A STUDENT PUBLICATION 1948 J i DEDICATION We, the Spinner Staff of 1948, wish to dedicate this yearbook to our Senior class- mates. Several reasons have motivated our desire to make this dedication to them. First, the members of the Class of ’48 are serious- minded, ambitious young men and women who dream of success and accomplishment. Second, we have worked, studied, and played together in a happy and cooperative spirit. Many happy memories of each other will live through our lives. Third, we have here in Gastonia High School laid the foundation for our future. As the Seniors go out into this world we hope that wherever their paths may lead, this yearbook will serve to remind them of their campus life and friends at Gastonia High School. ■ -«H FACULTY FACULTY Miss Clara Lee Dedmon Mr. H.
