Each of us is endowed with physical strength,
the power to reason, a consciousness of spiritual
values. Although the individual is strong, it is a
sensitive, emotional thing which is easily influenced,
especially during the first twenty years of its life.
The individual has also a special inheritance upon
which it must build its fate. On the foundation of
these legacies, environment molds the character.
When we contemplate the shocking confusion of
human affairs which prevails in the world today and
attempt to understand the situation, our minds are
sure to be puzzled and uncertain. We have un-
precedented conditions to deal with and novel
adjustments to make. Scientific knowledge, un-
known to our grandfathers, is ours to use. The
possibilities are unlimited, but first we must create
an open attitude of mind to cope with conditions
never before faced. We must learn to see the world
clearly for it is in the world that we make our home.
At the same time, however, we need expert guid-
ance so that we may learn to think along the right
paths. This is why our school environment is of
such importance. At Mount Vernon we are pre-
pared to meet the life which lies ahead ofeach of us.
Through the study of literature, history, science,
language and mathematics, we are filled with work-
ing knowledge. Through art and music, we learn to

appreciate beauty. Through our daily religious
services and through the study of the Bible we are
trained in ethical behavior. Through our associa-
tions with our teachers and friends, we learn to
understand better the people around us.
In one sense our years at Mount Vernon lead us
to the gateway oflife. As we enter the gates of the
school, we enter a stage of preparation. Four years
are spent within those gates-four years in which
we grow and mature. We are led to understand
responsibility, we recognize our talents. Daily we
learn and grow. At times there are heartbreaks and
disappointments, often we feel discouraged, yet
even discouragement is an invaluable part of our
After four years within the gates of Mount
Vernon, we leave the friends we have made, but we
carry with us the knowledge of a wide world. We
leave those gates prepared to face the future. From
Mount Vernon we gain an education-an education
which is a preparation for the world.
For four years we have been led through various
gateways-knowledge, understanding, appreciation
of the beautiful, estimation of true value. Now we
come to the final gate, the largest gate, the gateway
of life. From this point we are able to walk forth
into both the sunshine and shadows with confidence.
