A lil .A- We read the past by the light of the present, and the forms vary as the shadows fall, or as the point of vision alters. Froude Foreword Ever try to catch a shadow? Follow a shadow, it still flies you, Seem to fly, it will pursue. Ben Jonson Catching a shadow is like trying to foresee the path to a successful future. Each of us has a shadowg and if we stop to notice instead of rushing headlong, keeping strictly to our sched- ules, it might be right under our nose. Even so, we know that the path we now tread leads to our future, and that sometime, some- where, one of the crossroads leads to our successes. If we take time to view life around us instead of following the crowd into the maze, we may better determine which di- rection is ours, and ours alone. Coming events cast their shadows aheadg and by our taking time to read these signs, a little more of what's in store may be revealed. XXX: f-X - XX ..f9Xx XXX. i .S .XHX X 'XX X .

DARE To you, Mr. Dare, for your out- standing service, we proudly dedicate this Pyramid. In the years since the College began, you have served both as teacher and friend to your students in European History. We hope you will "get the point" when we smile and say, "Thank you for all you have done for Mt. Vernon Community College. You will always leave your shadow of influence here." With deep appreciation and great admira- tion, then, we present this 1966 Pyra- mid.

Vernon Community College ,Q The Dean's essage Just outside Gizeh, their dark forms silhouetted against a shimmering blue sky, three massive piles of stone thrust upward from the desert sands. These are the great pyramids - one of the seven wonders of the Ancient World. The civilization which created and constructed them is an even greater wonder. It lasted for forty centuries. The Egyptians built their culture - like their pyramids - to endure. They probed the mysteries of medicine, plotted the pathways of the planets, created new art forms, and preserved a record of their activities, their accomplishments, and their ambitions. From these records - like figures seen in a shadow play - we glimpse the jeweled splendor of the courts, the scribe impressing his thoughts on moist clay tiles, the fellahin driving his oxen across the fertile fields, and teeming market places where turbaned vendors hawked their wares, and the sweating slave straining to hoist huge blocks into position on the pyramid. But most of all we see their pride of accomplishment and their sense of permanence. Even the pyramid tombs were meant to preserve the pharaohs for Judgment Day. Today we are building another great civilization, constructed like the tiers of a pyramid on the foundations laid by Egypt, Greece, and Rome. Like the Egyptians we build for permanence. Like the Greeks we reverence the individual. Like the Romans we trust in law. Each of you is a builder in that society. Because it is a free society, you may help create the design, help shape the stones, help lift them into position: or you may hide in the shadows of ignorance, prejudice, and sloth. Yours is the choice. MR, JAMES F. YATES Registrar MRS. BETTY ANN WARD Counselor MRS. KATHLEEN KELLY Secretary MRS. CAROLE SUE HIGGINS Secretary MRS. BETTY LANG- Bursar MR.

Vernon Communilg College The Mt. Vemon Community College first opened its doors to higher learning in September, 1956. The College was focused on the thirteenth year level during its first year and then in 1957, the fourteenth year was added. Initially, the classes were small and very informal. The main office and classrooms were located in a remodeled apartment house--Building " H". Also, the College boasted its first basketball team and cheerleaders during 1956-57. Graduation exercises were not held the first year, but the students planned a Spring Formal for the highlight of the school year. Many activities and organizations were introduced to Mt. Vernon Community College during the next two years, The Student Council and Pyramid Staff were formed in 1957- 58. In addition, the College Library became a student research center--with seating ca- pacity of 38! ln March, 1958, the Kappa Gamma Chapter of the Student Education As- sociation received its charter. In 1958-59, the newly-organized Science Club featured lectures, field trips, and a banquet. Also, a tennis team and a bridge club were organized with faculty sponsors. The School of Practical Nursing began classes in October, 1961, and was later ad- joined under the College with Mr. Howard Jones as Director. As the enrollment increased each year, it was necessary for the classes to find more space, thus, the High School Building "B" was completely remodeled. During the per- iod of remodeling in the Fall of 1964, the students either "crammed" into the Student Lounge or "studied" in the High School Cafeteria, which was the temporary location of the College Library. After Thanksgiving Vacation, 1964, the College faculty and stu- dents proudly moved into the new Building "B", which contained ten classrooms, a new Student Lounge, a Teachers' Lounge, teacher conference rooms, a larger College Li- brary, and offices for the Dean, Counselor, and Registrar. As we glance back and see the shadow of Mt. Vernon Community College grow rapidly, we see what this shadow will bring to our future life in business and in education. M1 , ff 651, X N ' -- ' r V .
