Four years ago, in the fall of 1945 to be exact. 45 little
dejected boys and girls entered the halls of the Hender-
sonville High School. Of the toils, tribulations, and the
joys they experienced I am now about to tell.
Oh, shall we ever forget that terrible feeling when we
first entered the front doorl However, it wasn't long
until we began to feel quite at home. As our guide
through that first year, we chose Mrs. Cordell johnson.
She was also our English teacher for almost three years
and many of our cherished memories of H. H. S. center
around her classes. Speaking of Mrs. johnson's classes.
how can we ever forget Mattie's "smiling fish." Our class
officers that year were Virginia Lee, President: Ray
Mundy, Vice-President: Loreece Carr, Secretary-Treasurer:
Nettie Sue Ralph, Reporter: and R. L. Armstrong as
Sergeant-at-Arms. Our representatives on the cheering
squad were Peggy Douglas and Norma Raymer. We had
our toils as well as joys in our high school careers, but
only the joys seem to be remembered now. One of our
well remembered ones was the Freshman jaunt to Shelby
Park for a picnic. Everyone ate too much, but who ever
went to a picnic and enjoyed it without eating too much?
Starting our Sophomore Year off in a big way, we
elected Miss Kathleen Fergusson as our new Sponsor, Wilh
Virginia Lee as President, Ray Mundy, Vice-Presidentg
Nettie Sue Ralph, Secretary-Treasurer: and E. C. Green
as Sergeant-at-Arms. jo-Ann Hunter and Norma Raymer
were our cheerleaders. lt seems that it is a tradition
for each class at H. H. S. to give at one time or another
a hayride and go around the "loop." Who are we to
break the tradition, so on our sophomore hayride we rode
all the way around the "loop," then came hack to a
wonderful wiener roast at the Lee's.
Oh, the junior Year! We really got ahead in the
world. financially. that is. Miss Fergusson was again our
sponsor and we accomplished many things under her
leadership. That year we started a tradition at H. H. S..
the tradition of the junior Class Play. Our play, Nuts
and Bolts, was a huge success. Why we may even have
a future actor or actress in our midst! The proceeds
from our play helped finance the highlight of the season,
the junior-Senior reception. It was given in the gym
and the place will never again look as festive as it did
that night. Crepe paper streamers and bright colored
wagon wheels were everywhere. We even had a five piece
orchestra! Our tables were stacks of real haled hay
and at the ends of the tables there were big, black kettles
of ice cold Coca-Colas. The junior officers were Virginia
Lee, President: Ray Mundy, Vice-President: Sue johnson,
Secretary: E. C. Green, Treasurer: and Leroy Rice, Re-
porter. Our Cheerleaders, Virginia Lee and Nettie Sue
Ralph, really helped support the team. To end out
junior Year in a big way we made that never-to-be-
forgotten trip to Mammoth Cave, Kentucky. Up at dawn,
riding all the way there, and then tramping through the
cave was really a job, but who cared about being tired?
The Senior Year produced many tasks, such as editing
the "Commando Comet" and helping with the annual
which was sponsored by the Beta Club. To help direct
these tasks we again chose a new sponsor, Mr. j. O.
Barnes. Betty Ann Durhatn was elected President: E. C.
Green, Vice-President, Dot Petty, Secretary: Virginia Lee,
Treasurer, and Ray Mundy, Reporter. Our cheerleaders
were Virginia Lee and Ray Mundy. History is said to be
the recorded happenings from an unbiased view, but as
l record the happenings of our dear class it is hard for
me to present it as such. The things our class did are
all happy eventful happenings to come.
Our graduation is at hand and all the parties and joys
along with the work and study are only memories. We
leave now, thanking the faculty and student body for all
their helpfulness. We want to especially thank Mr. W. A.
Kirby for his sincere help in all our struggles.
