JOHN CARROLL HIGH SCHOOL Birmingham, Alabama
THE MOST REVEREND THOMAS J. TOOLEN, D. D. ,
Bishop of Mobile
they have striven constantly to plant in our minds understanding of
our Infinite Maker and all His Creations,
they have shown undying charity in their exemplary lives,
they have always been just and given praise where praise was due,
they, at the call of God, have dedicated their lives to our progress. We, the class of 1953, dedicate this Annual to the entire faculty of John Carroll High School.

Confusion highlighted September of ‘49 as we freshmen bombarded the halls of Carroll with an enthusiasm that remained through our four years.
Excitement was at an all time high when we traveled to those "far off" football games.
Christmas came with strains of "Cosca Bells" (Spanish students version of "Jingle Bells" done Carroll style) and we ended our first high school semester.
Freshmen helped to make the first Carroll Minstrel a top notch affair as Jackie Cogbill danced to "Sweet Georgia Brown". Chorus members will long remember the cast banquet given a week later.
By September 50 we gladly discarded the title of rats and took on the dignity of Sophomores with Jimmy Lcvio as Class President.
Minstrel rehearsals, checrlcading tryouts, and watching the construction of the gym made this also a busy year.
As football season opened wc knew that James McNally, Clarence Boggan, Jimmy Anderton. and Terry Murphy would be the all round class athletes.
Many a bottle of liniment was used by the forty Sophomore girls who made a stab at athletics when they went out for cheerlcading.
And again this year as in the year before the Minstrel was a success.
Upper classmen at lastl 11 Mary Jo Buckner was the choice for Junior Class President. Helping her were An Mawtiinncy, Vice-President, Rebecca Rice, Secretary, and Biddy DiChiara, Treasurer.
Carroll made a good showing in the school evaluation, but then we hadn’t worried about that, had we)}}}
About this time also the pledges for the National Honor Society were announced.
Six members of our class were fortunate enough to make the first tapping. Also many from our ranks were asked to become members of the Math Society.
"Be happy, go Homer", was one of the many slogans adorning the walls during Student Council elections that Spring. We were happy and went Homer as Art Homer Mawhinney was elected President; David Vigilante. Vice-President; Mary Ann Dennis, Secretary; and Bill Keeling. Treasurer.
Sophisticated Seniors.....well Seniors anyway. J. L. Shata, Class President, was
supported by Steve DiChiara, Vice-President, Syliva Stephens, Secretary, and Kathy Thompson, Treasurer.
It was a spirited football season as Betty Coleman, Head Cheerleader, led the crowds in cheers for the team of which Terry Murphy was Captain.
Climaxing the season was School Spirit Week and the crowning of the King and Oueen after the Saint Bernard Football game.
The next big affair was the Musical Revue. Seniors were proud of Jo Ann Antonio, Catherine Clark, Jackie Cogbill, Mabel Spinks. Phyllis Abts, Theresa Jo Bruno, Gloria Abrasley and Senior Glee Chorus members, who did their performances so well that the Revue had to be a success.
A new Honor Society was introduced into the school while wc were Seniors. This was the Quill and Scroll Journalistic Honor Society. This was partly due to the efforts of Catherine Clark. Cavalier Editor, to have our school paper properly recognized.
Bridget McGecver, Annual Editor, was our representative sent to Washington to the Laurie Battle Tour.
Many in our graduating class have feathers of success tucked neatly in their caps. With the grace of God wc will keep succeeding. Backward never, forward ever to our eternal destiny.President...........John Shaia
