Class Mistory In September, 1942, a group of young students entered Goldston School to begin their long journey on the road from Ignorance to Education. This was not the brightest class that ever entered Miss Grace Burke’s and Mrs. Ollie Garner’s first grades; but, despite this, they were eager to learn, though sometimes they grew lazy and had to be reminded of the task before them. During the following years, under the direction of various teachers, they progressed rapidly and were soon ready to enter the long awaited doors of high school. The gates were opened, and the frightened, hesitant members of the freshman class slowly entered and groped their way through the seeming darkness of those first few weeks of high school; however, dawn broke upon their timid souls as the darkness dwindled into light. They grew accustomed to their new surroundings, their teachers, and their fellow students, the upper classmen. To steer them through this doubtful year, they chose as leaders, Frances Dawson, John Palmer, Sylvia Fields, and Lois Smith. The fall of ’51 found them no longer doubtful and hesitant, but quite sure, almost too sure, of themselves. Not out of necessity, but because of custom, they chose as leaders, Lataine Oldham, Shelby Wicker, and Ronnie Gaines. Ten students— Ronnie Gaines, Eugene Oldham, Shelby Wicker, Lataine Oldham, John Palmer, Jo Ann Yarborough, Jeter Dowdy, Lois Smith, Elvette Mclver, and Erma Gaines—served at the Junior-Senior Banquet. Without-waiting to be asked, they proudly proclaimed, " At last, we are Juniors!” Spirit ran high with a determination to give the best Junior-Senior Banquet in the history of Goldston School. They selected ' ' STARDUST” as the theme, with Rev. Scott Poole as after dinner speaker. To supervise and encourage them that year, they selected Shelby Wicker, Augusta Hancock, Lois Smith, Erma Gaines, and Elvette Mclver. That same year, all Juniors who had participated in sports attended the first Athletic Banquet at Goldston with " Bones” McKinny as speaker of the evening. Five Juniors acted as marshals with Shelby Wicker, Chief; Lataine Oldham, Erma Gaines, Augusta Hancock, and Mary Meeks. Many Juniors had roles in the Christmas play under the direction of Mrs. Vann Oldham. Made more confident by the success of this undertaking, they began their senior year as a group of happy-go-lucky youths. They chose as leaders for this, the most important year, Sylvia Fields, Mary Meeks, Shirley Burke, Erma Gaines, and Peggy Harris. They presented the Senior play, " Cornin’ Round the Mountain,” which everyone seemed to enjoy thoroughly. After this they settled down again to books and lessons, but in their minds were thoughts of the Junior-Senior Banquet, the annuals which were due to arrive in March, their trip, and most of all, Commencement! Now that the end of their high school career is in view, they, the members of the Class of ’54, extend their sincerest appreciation and gratitude to their various teachers and to their principal. They are duly grateful for the guidance that they so willingly gave to prepare this class to face the future with a firm resolution to strive for success in all undertakings. By SHELBY WICKER
