As we bid good-bye to these hallowed halls that have meant so much to us in the past five years, let us pause and glance back on some of the activities and or¬ ganizations that have played a great part in our lives. Perhaps at a future date when we pick up this book it will bring pleasant memories and thus serve as a connecting link with the past. The graduating class offers this yearbook to you as a record of our last year at Luther Jackson. 1 ADMINISTRATION FACULTY CLASSES ACTIVITIES ATHLETICS ADVERTISEMENTS We, the Senior Class of ’59-’60, proudly dedicate this “TIGER” to Mrs. Lutie Coates. Her efforts have been untiring, her services unfor¬ gettable, and her loyalty and devotion to the cause of education unmatched. We will ever hold a place in our hearts for you and pray that you may enjoy many, many happy years in retirement. “A perfect woman, nobly plann’d To warn, to comfort, and command And yet a spirit still, and bright With something of angelic light” Wordsworth Administration and Mr. iy. 3. lUooJson Division Superintendent of 3 airfax County Sefiools We, the Senior Class of Luther Jackson High School, pay tribute to Mr. W. T. Woodson who has served the past three decades as Super¬ intendent of Fairfax County Public Schools. We have experienced many changes in our school program. Now as we complete our course of study, we feel that the many changes which have taken place under the leadership of Mr. Woodson have contributed greatly toward an improved education a 1 standard for all. THE STAFF Principal’s Message- To the Senior Class of 1960 : I wish to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to the seniors and sponsors for the outstanding job you have done to make this annual a successful and worthwhile project. This annual will serve as a book of past accomplishments and memories. I feel confident that it will be one of your most cherished possessions. I would like to congratulate you for the accomplishments you have made. I am sure you will strive to be a credit to your school and yourself by using the training you have received wisely, and as you go out into the world, remember that no person was ever honored for what he received; honor was the reward for what he gave. May your future be so planned and managed that the important ex¬ periences of your life bring you both honor and success. Sincerely, 7 MEMBERS OF THE GUIDANCE DEPARTMENT From left to right: Mrs. Gwendolyn Fauntleroy Counselor; Mrs. Tempie Vest, Counselor; Mrs. Claudia Hammond, Guidance Director. Mrs. Margery Robinson, Visiting Teacher Mrs. Emma Moore, Elementary Supervisor CHEMISTRY There is a limit of accur- ancy inherent in any ex¬ perimental set up. It de¬ pends on the precision of the measuring device used. It is the aim of every Chem¬ istry student at Luther Jackson High School to per¬ form the various opera¬ tions and measurements with such skill that the ex¬ perimental accuracy will be limited only by the appara¬ tus used. CHEMISTRY B 10L0GV a 0 .y Ol BIOLOGY Visual aids in the form of charts, pictures, slides, filmstrips, master Vu- Graph, Ken-O-Vision or, motion pictures, are ex¬ tremely valuable in the study of Biology. Many top¬ ics such as the processes and functions of living or¬ gans, or the behavior of plants and animals in their natural environments, can be studied in the laboratory by this method, better per¬ haps, than any other.

It is a cooperative enterprise between business and industrial establishments fur¬ nishing part-time employment and training to students during school hours. Through this employment the students learn the manipulative part of their jobs under actual working conditions. At the same time the school furnishes the technical subject mater¬ ial related to the job being learned.

Ambition: Undecided DONALD WILLSON Manassas, Virginia Industrial Arts 1,2,3; Ambition: Undecided Class History In September, 1955, we entered Luther Jackson High School as eighth graders. We were very timid because of the many reports we had received concerning high school. It did not take us very long to become adjusted to our new environment. The year passed along swiftly and soon we found ourselves elated freshmen. During the freshman year, our class sche¬ dule gave us much concern, but soon we were participating in our school activities with vigor, vim and vitality. Jean Smith, Irone Hicks, and Dianne Mercer became cheerlead¬ ers. Robert Wright made the baseball team, Robert Jones made the basketball team. Nathaniel Braxton and Ronald Reaves be¬ came football players. In the sophomore year, we acquired new responsibilities and gained new experiences. Many more members of our class participated in co-curricular activities, which increased our social mobility. One of the outstanding achievements of our class was made by Rob¬ ert Brent who won second place in the State Industrial Arts exhibit. Several other mem¬ bers were inducted into the National Honor Society. Among the inductees were Robert Wright, Gloria Wiggins, Doris Thomas, and Irone Hicks. As we entered our junior year, we were a little more mature. We began to assume a greater responsibility and as a result, we worked energetically to fulfill our obliga¬ tions. Some of the outstanding achievements of this year were as follows: Haney Pearson won an award in Trigonometry at the Dis¬ trict Science and Mathematics Conference. Robert Brent won first place in the metal spinning area in the State Industrial Arts Exhibits. Doris Johnson was a delegate to the N.H.A. National Convention in Atlanta, Georgia. The fall of 1959 brought back to Luther Jackson sixty-four determined and very mature students eager to press on and to achieve the rewards that lie ahead for those who sacrifice in the quest of learning. We hope that our record as shown herein will shed more light as to our determination and capabilities. Now as the curtains close on this chapter of our lives, we are looking forward to a more wholesome life in the future. When we are more mature, we are sure that we will look back over the memorable years at Luther Jackson with fond admiration for our many friends and experiences, and have a deeper respect for those who have guided us through the many varied activities. 41 3RIS .1 0WAS VM e dletc r i m RONE Crimson And Qold Class Colors School life!

As to such estate as it has pleased the Fate and our own strong hands and brains to win for us, we do dispose through our sponsor, Mr. H. L. Lawson, who will administer this Will and Testament in ac¬ cordance with the wishes of the Class of 1960. We bequeath to our beloved principal, Mr. Taylor M. Williams, a heavy mortgage on our future, our deepest reverence, our sincere affection, and the whole and limited wealth of our eternal memory. (Please forgive every gray hair and wrinkle we caused during our brief stay.) To Mr. Robert A. Tate, we leave the echoes of our resounding voices and clattering steps in the cor¬ ridors of Luther Jackson High School. To Mrs. Hammond, our guidance director, we leave the familiar and long sought after answers to ques¬ tions why . . , when . . , and where . . . ? We give and bequeath to the dear faculty, who have been our instrucotrs in all the wisdom of the ages, a sweet unbroken succession of restful nights and peaceful dreams. No longer need they lie awake through the long watches of the night to worry over the uncertainty of whether this one is doing her work tonight. To our most worthy successors, the Junior Class, we leave our coveted seats in the back of the audi¬ torium. We bequeath to the student body of Luther Jack- son High School, as a whole, some rare schemes by, which they may succeed in getting their parents to PTA meetings and other successful activities, thus proving to the principal and teachers that we are not all orphans. (Contact main office for informa¬ tion ) To the dear young freshman who will enter in September, we bequeath a booklet entitled “Psycho¬ logical Tolerance” containing invaluable information on illegal locker entrance, walking the halls and how to talk to your teachers into letting you go out to a non-existing activity. The following may seem but trifling bequests, but we hope they may be accepted as valuable assets to those who may receive them. To: Kenzie Locke, Robert Wright leaves his athletic ability Gloria Wiggins leaves her physics ability to Gloria Thomas Cleotria Duncan her typing ability to Jackie Smith Thelma Ewell would like to leave her secret of “How to obtain knowledge by osmosis” to Virginia Marshall Montey Thomas leaves her ability to get along well with others to Mary Ann Collins Pat Mills leaves her “Blonde Streak” to Doris Hyden and Ernestine Moss. Jean Smith leaves her ability to “Peter Gunn” to Elania Taylor. James Peterson, his musical ability to James Matthews Speller Hall, his football ability to Philip Moore Leonard Lee and Albert Ellis, their ability in D. 0. to James Vanison and Joe Ellis Carroll Rich, his ability to get along with people to Percy Davis Eddie Jones, his girl friends to Milton Gunn William Collins, his drumming skill to George Wilks Brenda Marshall and Doris Thomas, their basket¬ ball skill to the team of 1960-61 Harold Mansfield, his charm and personality to Wilber Coats Prentiss Randall, his romantic ability to Robert Pearson Kenneth Ford, his music ability to Houston Summers Irone Hicks, her slim profile to Jackie Baskerville Dianne Mercer, her ability to learn th e cheering squad steps to Doris Gaskins William Allen, Ed Gunn, Bob Jones, and Mary Taylor, their eyeglasses to all the sightless stu¬ dents of Luther Jackson Tim Johnson, his ability to graduate to Bernard Robinson Audrey Willson, her amiability to Sheila Lewis and Gloria Black Ronald Reaves, his thirteen letters earned in sports to Percy Davis Haney Pearson, his wide waistline to Walter Ellis and George Dickson In witness whereof, We, the Class of 1960, the testator, have this our will, written on one sheet of parchment, set our hands and seal this fifth day of June, Anno Domini, one thousand nine hundred and sixty. 80 % It II ' f J I ' 1 5 IV 1 A.xtou.r NaUanAV BraX h HeUn Breu ' V MCftftlf iKtl Euitii r qjiw.
