CLASS HISTORY ★ Twelve years ago, a group of fifty-five children entered the first grades, taught by Mrs. Ollie Garner and Miss Grace Burke, respectively. This group, starting on the road to education, had a long way to go, but they were brave, and most of them climbed to the second grade. On through the years they struggled until finally a new episode in their lives began. The changes in their school life were greater than any they had ever experienced before, for they had progressed into high school. They soon grew accustomed, however, to high school ways—the changing of classes and the different teachers in different rooms. Nevertheless, as all classes do, they began to diminish in number that year by losing Shirley Mashburn, Carl Foster Rives and Eileen Gates. Starting their Sophomore year was easier than the first had been, for they were now beginning to feel that they were a real part of the school. They were drawn more and more into the excitement of the upperclassmen. Five boys and five girls were chosen to serve at the Junior-Senior banquet. Unfortunately, they lost two more members that year, Benny Gaines and Clyde Thomas Webster. The following June, two of the girls married, Jean Taylor and Joyce Oldham. They continued, how¬ ever, to attend school. Their Junior year was wonderful. An event to make them proud was the Junior class play. The Hobgobhlin House proved to be one of the most delightful and most entertaining plays ever pre¬ sented here at Goldston High School. A trip with the Seniors to Florida on March 26, 1952, continued their fun. The trip was exciting as well as educational. They saw many historical places as they traveled toward Florida down through Savannah, Georgia, on to St. Augustine and on to Day¬ tona Beach, where they enjoyed two days of sunning and swimming, while friends at home were freezing in blustery March winds. Leaving Daytona Beach, they visited and toured Silver Springs, a famous spot of interest in Florida. Mrs. Vann Oldham, our English teacher and sponsor, Mrs. George Cullipher, our principal’s wife, and Mrs. Corbett Gaines, a dear friend of the class, went with them as friends and chaperones. About a month later, they gave the Seniors a banquet, carrying out the rainbow theme in decorations. The speaker of the evening was the county superintendent, Mr. J. S. Waters, who gave them some good points on how to think. Later, they had square dancing, un¬ usual fun, but something that nearly all of them could take part in—the girls even kicked off their high heels to dance barefoot. Graduation for their partners, the Seniors, came too soon. The Juniors re¬ gretted their leaving, and realized that they were left to fill their places and solemnly accepted their new responsibility. Nevertheless, for a last gay note, they sang their song written to a current hillbilly tune, “Lonely Little Robin”, and had a last laugh together. The married members left the class during the summer and were not with them during the Big Year. Yes, finally they became Seniors. They felt somewhat differently from previous years in the fact that it seemed as though they were being looked up to instead of their looking up to others. They experienced many happy events that year—the Christmas play, the Junior- Senior banquet, the Senior play and a trip to the Chowan River—these are a few of the many things they’ll always remember. Now, just as the old leaves fall to make room for the new ones, they leave Goldston High to make room for the present Juniors to be Seniors, and to leave a pathway for next year’s first graders, who twelve years from tonight, take their places. It ' s true; they finish their high school careers only to begin life anew. Some of them will continue their education; others will be finding jobs and putting into practice all the things they have learned. They will all be working at something, somewhere, but they may never again be all together, one happy class—more like a family—as they are tonight and as they have been for twelve years. The class thanks the teachers of the Goldston School for their unfailing kindness and patience. It is with the feeling that the years spent here have been profitable, that they, guided by the hand of Providence, seek out their own particular tasks in life. Margaret Sharpe Class Historian
