CLASS HISTORY GF I96O
As graduation draws near, let us take a look at how the class of 1960 formed.
We embarked upon a new adventure, as a frightened and curious group of youngsters, we
started down the halls of education twelve years ago, to prepare ourselves for tomorrow.
Elementary school presented a "first timei' for a great number of adventures. Some of them
were our first report card, our first time to present a program for our parents and friends, for
some of us to go on small excursions with, a new word, our classmates.
Those of us who started here in the First grade were: Alice Ashley, Mary Boberg, Linda
Bratten, Carole Brenneman, Douglas Brenneman, Virginia Brenneman, Paul Brooks, Patricia
Brown, Suzanne Buckley, Evelyn Budd, Rollin Havens, John Hawkins, Carroll Herrmann,
Julia Johnston, Richard Kolehmainen, Verna Lemponen, Sharon Luce, Sandra Mead, Bar-
bara Miller, David Miller, Donald Mitchell, Ronald Naso, Tom Nizen, Carol Roark, Brenda
Schumann, Patti Shore, Grace Smith, Betty Snyder, William Swickard, Maryeleanor Van Slyke,
Margretta Vote, and James White.
In the middle of the first grade James Anthony and Joyce Brown entered Jefferson.
The second year of education brought James Cook and John Hruska as new members
of our class.
In the third grade, Ronald Berrier and Darlene Inman made the class of 1960 two larger.
Two more joined us in the fourth grade, they were James Maylish and Tom Reuschling.
Charles Evans and Daniel Kelly in the fifth grade, and Mary Ellen Hawes in the sixth grade
were those who joined us to help make our final preparations before entering junior high school.
When the September finally came when we could enter high school we were once again a
curious and excited group of young people. Now, we could go to the high school dances, enter
into the fun of pep assemblies, go to football games with some idea of who was playing, and
what we were cheering for, and greatest of all, changing classes. We had the opportunity to
elect our class officers and for some of us to hear our name as one of the few who made the
honor roll. Those who entered in the midst of all this excitement were Edmound Brown, James
Sackett, and Jerrold Schultz.
After all the excitement of entering high school was over, three more students joined our class
in the eighth grade, they were James Burlin, George McMannes, and Kathleen McNutt.
ln the ninth grade the boys were eligible to go out for athletics, such as football, basketball
and track. The girls could join the many clubs offered by the high school for them, such as
G.I.A., J-Hi-Life, or any one of her choice.
Our freshman year also brought a large number of new students to Jefferson. Those from
Dorset were: Rosemary Baker, Carol Berrier, Janice Clark, Marilyn Cliff, Herbert Haines, Bar-
bara Hudson, Carol Jewell, Joyce Ketola, Donald Kyle, Leon Smith, Cary Piiponen, and
Those from Lenox were: Larry Brown, Judith Chapin, Dennis Connolly, James Divine,
Denise Hall, Lillian Kapferer, Sharon Kasonic, Nancy Kurt, Lila Salem, Sandra Springer,
Robert VanDevender, and Martin Vargo,
There were also a few students from other schools, they were: June Hall, Charles Hamilton,
Edward Miller, Nancy Pettit, Valerie Price, and Marie Ensman.
When our sophomore year began we had to start thinking about giving the prom the follow-
ing year. We chose as a project the sale of desk pen sets. At the end of the year, we were well
on the way to a beautiful prom. Cora Gray, Luba Korownyk, Kenneth Misener, Donald Otto,
and Robert Parsons entered Jefferson in their sophomore year.
The following year was very busy for all of us as juniors. Another project to help finance the
prom was the sale of Christmas candles. We chose to present for the junior play a three act
comedy, "Aunty Misbehavesf' When it finally came time for the prom we chose "Hawaiian
Sunseti' as the theme. Alice Kosenko and Beatrice Taylor were the students who joined us in
our junior year.
The class of 1960 became a complete group as Nate Hall joined us in our senior year.
The ofiicers chosen to represent us were: President, Tom Reuschling, Vice-President, Ronald
Berrier, Secretary, Esther Hanson, Treasurer, Edmound Brown.
For the senior play we chose a three act mystery, "Dangerous Nan McGrewf'
We wish to thank the faculty, our parents, and our many friends in the community for making
our education an experience we will never forget.
