I Morris College Sumter, S. C. THE HORNET I960 Editor: J. W. Jacobs Associate Editor: Alvin Forrest Business Managers: William Sinkler Clifford Sumner jForeword hen the sun is moving westward and many miles we've trod down 's road, we will always remember the days at Morris College. We proudly present "The Hornet," 1960. We hope that it will be the rarest and most cherished among your best collection of fond memories. It is our desire that as this volume becomes worn and tattered, you will re-live episodes that occurred at our Alma Mater. The love and hope expressed by the faculty and students here will linger in our memories forever. . . . Alma Mater Morris our college dear, With hearts all filled with cheer. We come to thee. Throughout life's checkered ways. Thy name we'll ever praise. Teacher of youthful days all hail to thee. When from our homes we came. To own thy lofty name, Breathe courage free. Parents and teachers dear. Calmed by the lack of fear. Pay homage through the years, All hail to thee. 3Dedication To Our Parents This Is Where We Started Many dedications have been made to our parents but few have carried more depth of thanks and gratitude than this lasting tribute which we now make. For your insistence that we be prepared to meet the severity of the world’s demand: for your patience amid our many frivolous adventures; for your cheerfulness when we were depressed; for the love that absorbed our confidence; for the faith that you have always exemplified in God and your fellowmen; for your humor that brightened our despair; for your sacrifices to give us the things that we needed and the things we wanted, for your limitless encouragement to continue when we failed; for the molding of our lives from infancy to manhood and womanhood and for the many things you have done for us. to you, dear parents, with simplicity of expression, we are dedicating this publication and saying. "Thank You." 4The students of the 1960 graduating class who are standing on the threshold, preparing for their departure into active life, are far different today from what they were when we welcomed them here four years ago. Many fine things have taken place in your lives, and the history of Morris College has been enhanced by your having been here. It has been a source of pleasure to have had the opportunity to share with you your experiences while here. We congratulate you on your accomplishments and wish for each of you continued success. As you go forth to take your place in a continually changing world during an era of advanced scientific and cultural progress, may God guide you and help you to be of supreme service to mankind. 6 O.

We viewed with interest the motto. "Enter to Learn. Depart to Serve." Realizing that nothing could be accomplished without unity and organization, we followed the advice of our advisors. Mrs. E. W. Wheeler and Mrs. M. M. Hatcher. The following year, 1957. we came back to the campus as wise sophomores. We studied hard, piled up hours and quality points and prepared to select a major field of study. May came. The school year ended. Our determination to succeed was more evident during our Junior year. 1958. The high point of this year came when we presented a three-act drama. "Betty, the Girl 'o My Heart." At our Junior Prom the theme, "Neptune Court" was followed. Our advisors, Mr. R. D. Carmichael and Mrs. E. E. Black were very helpful in making our Prom a success. As happy, proud, ambitious seniors, we returned in September. 1959. Mrs. J. W. Taylor and Mr. M. W. Hays give us guidance. They serve as our advisors. Seniors in outstanding positions are as follows: Albertha Pringle, Class President Dill Gamble, Class Vice President Beverly J. McMillan. Class Secretary Maggie Sumter, Miss Senior Mary L. Getter, Miss Morris College Alvin Forrest, President of the Student Body Albertha Pringle. Superintendent of the Sunday School James Jacobs, Science Club President William Sinkler, B.S.U. President As we write the history of our lives at our Alma Mater, we express our highest hopes that it may inspire us to always strive to leave honorable footprints on the sands of Time.
