As the final bell rang at the Lancaster Center School, August, 1944 fourteen wiry first
graders took their seats in the first grade room.
Miss Craig led us through our first yeat of school and by the time it was over we had
begun to know what it was all about.
After seven more years of school we were old enough now to have the responsibilities
of freshmen or 'underclassmen'. At this point we still had ten of the fourteen who started
in the first grade.
Our sophomore year was next in line and although our activities did not increase we were
glad that we did not have to go through another year as freshman. This year was a big grow-
ing year for our class as all the sophomore class from Polk township joined us.
We entered our junoir year with great expectations knowing that at the end of the year
we would go on a trip to Washington and New York with the seniors. We raised funds for our
trip by selling different things and concessions at all the home games.
As we started our last and final year of school the following eight, Mary Lou Deemer,
Twyla Dolby, Carolyn Heaston, David Hedrick, Donald Meyer, Kenneth Parrott, Tom Shideler,
and Kyle Stouder graduated after being together all twelve years. Others who have joined us
include Lee Thompson, Charles Coble, Paul Douglass, and Dan Hiatt all from Polk , Jerry
Keyser, Mark Settlemyre, and Jack Boyer from Rock Creek, Marjorie Rowland from Pennsylvania,
Bill Pulley, who came from Connersville, Eugene Felton and Jerry Wiley, who started with us
but moved away, and after deciding that Lancaster was best came beck to join us.
Be it remembered that we, the Class of 1956, of Lancaster High School, situated in
Huntington Cou ty, in the State of Indiana, being in our usual unsound state of mind and
memory, but mindful of the uncertainty of this life, and our approaching dismemberment, do
make, publish and declare this our last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills
by us made.
