Blair and Mr. Calvin H. Finlay, who have worked hard and put forth great effort to guide us through our last years of high school. We wish to dedicate this book to them as a small token of our appreciation-this book we, with their help, have composed. We wish to dedicate this book to Mr. Finlay because he has been with us throughout our high school career. He has taught us and guided us through those trying years. We wish to dedicate it to Mrs. Blair because she, too, has helped us and guided us when we needed guidance, giving us understand- ing when it was needed and stood by us these last two years of high school life. To both of them we wish the best of every thing to come and we like to think that in the long life of their teaching ca- reers they will pick up the “Hawk” of 56 and pleasant mem- ories of the Eighth Graders of 51 and the Seniors of ’56 will unfold before them, causing them to say: “They climbed though the road was rugged, and may peace and prosperity be with each of them. ” So, may we now in dedicating this book to them, Mrs. Blair and Mr. Finlay, say, “Good luck to both of you. ” YEARBOOK STAFF YEARBOOK STAFF Alvin Brown Business Manager Martha Harris Circulating Managers Earline Daniels Dolores Bridgett Virginia Carpenter Mary Ellis Laura Watson Frances Wise Gertrude Willis Mary Johnson Margaret Brown Eva Taliaferro Rosie Wise Deloyd Avery Typists Helen Vincent Mattie Hill Mary Carpenter Annette Jackson Lottie Goodlan Warren Spottswood Feature Writers Gene Brown Editor-in-Chief TO THE CLASS OF 1956 Dear Friends, It is surely a pleasure to congratulate you! The very first class from this institution to achieve the honor of completing the entire five years! You have mastered our 12th grade, and now you are undoubtedly looking for " New Worlds” to conquer. How do you plan to succeed in the new challenges that we must send you out to meet? We wish that you may be found very faithful, capable, and courageous. Whether your des- tination leads through college halls or immedi- ately into the world of jobs and wages, may you be found valiant. I have just one other wish for the class of 1956. May you prove your gratitude for all the gifts and opportunities that you may receive. Devotedly yours, Carrie W. Michie Assistant Principal It is with pleasure and a great deal of pride that I have the opportunity and special privilege of expressing to you, the members of the class of 1956, my sincere wishes for a happy, fruitful and healthy life. You, as mem- bers of a senior class, will be moving into a more mature life which will demand far more of you than that to which you have been accli- mated. Therefore, I suggest and advise that you continue to study and be as good at your future tasks as your individual abilities permit. Our society is extremely complex today; therefore, it is advisable to be flexible in thought and learn to adjust yourselves to dif- ferent situations in a changing world. I am grateful for all the good you have done for the school during your enrollment here. Further, I wish to express my appre- ciation to the many individuals who have intel- ligently and devotedly assisted in preparing you for a new horizon. r TO THE CLASS OF 1956 My dear Friends, Very sincerely yours, Harvey A.

We, the one hundred and seventy eager students just out of ele- mentary school and with the glorious feeling of summer still lingering in our system began our first sober and solid era of high school life. Because of our eagerness and intelligence, it wasn’t very difficult for us to settle down and become adjusted to the never-ending study and concentration that is yet required of our eager yound minds. The many rules and customs that were new to us will never be forgott- en. Our class was the first to begin the five-year plan, and during our first year we were classified as Underclassmen. Our sponsors, Mr. C. H. Fin- lay, Mr. O. W. Thomas, Mrs. S. B. Mason, and Mrs. Eva Jackson, were very cooperative and showed much patience toward us in overcoming our many obstacles during our eighth grade year. The term of fifty-one passed quickly and we began our Freshman or first year in high school realizing then we had to buckle down to work. Our sponsors were Mr. C. H. Finlay, Mr. O. W. Thomas, Mrs. S. B. Mason, and Miss K. Tasker. During our Freshman year our class was well represented in the var- ious activities, such as Band, Pep Club, Majorette Club, Handicraft Club, Dramatics, Choir, Girls’ and Boys’ Varsity team. Camera Club, New Farm- ers of America, New Homemakers of America, Patrol System, both school and bus. Science Club, Needle Club, Library Club, Baseball, Softball and Football Teams. A year of pleasure and hard work was the Sophomore year. During this year we were sponsored by Mr. C. H. Finlay, Mr. O. W. Thomas and Mr. S. B. Newton. For the first time, we, the Sophomores were allowed to attend the Junior-Senior Prom, a big affair sponsored by the everworking Juniors. Our boys showed excellency in the Intramural Basketball tournament that year. Because of the decrease in our-number of fellow students whom we had lost along the wayside, we had only two homerooms, which were sponsored by Mr. C. H. Finlay and Mrs. V. P. Blair, respectively. This memorable year will always linger in our minds because of the great excitement of spon- soring the Junior-Senior Prom, which required great effort and patience on the part of the Juniors and sponsors. Our Senior year will always be remembered because of the hard work and pleasure shared by each of us. Fortunate are we to have Mr. C. H. Fin- lay and Mrs. V. P. Blair as our sponsors again. Nearing the completion of our high school education, we have high an- ticipations of becoming the leaders of tomorrow. We sincerely think that we have done our utmost in achieving a portion of our goal, and we are striving to forge ahead in the future.

Dickerson MARCHING BAND The Carver Band is the pride of the four counties, and is support- ed solely by the parents of the counties. The band has always placed first, second or third in state and dis- trict festivals and parades. Since 19 52, under the direction of Mr. El- mer F. Sampson, the band has grown from fifteen members to seventy members. Membership in the Marching Band is the goal toward which every band member strives from the beginning of his instrumental training. Each member of this band knows that it is an honor and great oppor- tunity to be a member of this organization. Every member pursues the five-point course of study: 1. Full band experience 2. Sectional practice and instruction 3. Technic instruction 4. Solo playing 5. Chamber music playing BEGINNING BAND The Beginning Band is one of the largest beginning groups Carver has ever had. This band will act as a feeder to the Marching and Concert Band.

This includes a better understanding of fine music and a deeper and wiser love for it Confidence and skill are also developed here. Factors contributing are: the blending of voices, adjustment of tones, proper articulation, enunciation and the displaying of that skill and confidence. The expected outcome is to sirrg beautiful music with good taste an d much discrimination. This is a class in which both boys and girls learn to sing better in a group.

The patrols help to distribute and collect tickets for many of the ac- tivities of the school. They serve as guides for visitors to the school and at all times can be relied upon for any duty to aid the school. In the future we plan to perfect our past duties and help establish rules and regulations that will be a benefit to Carver. Patrols are established in all high schools, and our schools are bene- fiting by their work. Director: Mr. J. H. Kearney Captains: Herman Glasker William Porter Harvard Brock Lieutenant: TRACK TEAM COACH: Mr. J. D. Brewington; TRAINER: Willie Jones, Benjamin Williams, Otis Ashton, James Ferris, Henry Smith. Effectiveness and efficiency of high school students should be de- veloped and maintained through a coordinated school-wide program which includes physical education experiences for all students. Supplementing instruction in physical activities, the Physical Ed- ucation Department attempts to provide, in spite of time limitations, opportunities for all boys and girls to participate in intramurals, com- petitive sports like baseball, basketball, football, softball, track and other recreational activities. So that all the educational value of interscholastic athletics may be secured for you, athletics here at Carver High School is adminis- tered and conducted by teachers in the Physical Education Department and other teachers who are primarily concerned about the welfare of participants. Our philosophy of physical education, which will take in athletics, as an integral part of the total education process, is a field of endeavor which has as its aim the development of physically, mentally, emotion- ally, and socially fit citizens through the medium of physical activities which have been selected with a view to realizing these outcomes.
