Suddenly the oldschool is humming withactivities. The story ofthe Lexington of Texas is told anew in the Texas History classes and strong feelings of loyalty to GHS prevail as the crowds rise from the bleachers at the football games and cries of "Fight, Team, Fight" are heard from the cheerleaders and the yelling section. 'The never-to-be-forgotten night of Homecoming, the Senior parties, the Mardi Gras Dance and the night of graduation are many of the memories that remain with the student. But long after these memories fade, there are the sweet rnemories of a school day, the way a hand touched yours, the warm friendliness of your gang at their lockers, the excitement of a tied score, and the big lump in your throatwhen you sang the school Alma Mater. These are the things that make a year unforgettable. Working ... playing , .. learning . .. growing .... This is the brief, yet won- derful life of GHS. THIS IS YOUR LIFE as the l956 Lexington pictures it for you. Three GHS students enjoy shady comfort under the trees. X 9 ' K 2149.-a ,Mi 4 vn- 5-eff' if . ' 1 .r , -Q 6 5 . 1? 3.
