A. H. S. through the crowded, eventful months and presents. 2 With Pictures And Words We Record... This year at Mount Airy High School has given us many memories to savor and treasure forever. We hope this seventh edition of Airmont will help to recall these events of the school year—ex¬ citing or routine, happy or somber, but always memorable. Each student and teacher, every school day, and the classroom and extra-curricular activities have combined to make this truly a year to remember. From fall’s school opening excite¬ ment and glorious color . . . ' through winter’s mid-terms, chill, and snowy wonderland .... A Year To Remember 4 . . . to spring’s exquisite greens and flower pastels, and l commencement excitement . . . . photographers and editors work and plan to cover all possible happenings of our year. Vaughn Gwyn, Shannon Smith, and Ruby Hunter study the calendar of events. At Mount Airy High School 5 CLASS WORK, the cen¬ ter of our school year, furnishes the most meaningful of our memo¬ ries. PHIL SMITH and JIMMY PELL put final touches on the scenery before dress rehearsal of My Three Angels. 6 CAFETERIA MANAGER Mrs. Kate son serves Jimmy boyles, one ot approximately 800 students fed - in the school lunchroom. THE CHEERLEADERS GATHER for one of their many practice sessions.

SAM INMAN (right) talks to his publisher, Todd Taylor, through his secretary, Dink Caldwell, as the seniors stage their assembly play, Murder by Morning. AFTER AN INTERESTING day attending the N. C. Scholastic Press Institute at Chapel Hill, High Spots staff members and adviser meet to return home. Bonnie Sparger, Nancy Thomas, Verona Sechrist, Ruth Chilton, and Miss Holder gather around Liebchen. “LET ME SEE TOO!” exclaims Patsy Vogler to Judy Pierce and Mary Jo McHone, as they look at a copy of High Spots on their future freshman day visit to the high school. 8 Cherish CLASS ROUTINE is forgotten for a more glamorous and romantic side of school life - a formal dance. ATHLETIC PROGRAMS add color and excite¬ ment to our year, build physical and moral strength. 9 euicanon Last spring Mr. L. B. Pendergraph, superintendent of Mount Airy ' s Public Schools, and Dr. Moir S. Martin, chairman of the Mount Airy School Board, resigned from these positions after many years of faithful service. Mr. Pendergraph has been superintendent of the schools for the past thirty years; Dr. Martin, chairman of the school board for thirty- four years. During this time our community’s schools have grown and progressed, more than doubling in enrollment and increasing in value ten times, to $2,000,000. Educational opportunities have grown with enrollment and physical facilities. For their loyal ser¬ vice and many years of helpful guidance, we dedicate the 1958 Airmont to these two men - remembered in our year and through many generations of MAHS students - Mr. Pendergraph and Dr. Martin. DR. MARTIN and Mr. Pendergraph worked together for the advancement of the Mount Airy schools. MR. L. B. PENDERGRAPH Superintendent of Mount Airy City Schools 1927 - 1957 10 DR. MOIR S. MARTIN Chairman of Mount Airy School Board 1923 - 1957 Administration And Faculty School board, administrators, faculty, office and cafeteria workers—all work to provide the best possible school. Through their efforts our high school year has been filled with both happy memories and profitable experiences. MOUNT AIRY SCHOOL BOARD: (LEFT, BOTTOM TO TOP) Mr. A. M. Nelson, Mr. R. M.

Finch Principal, Trigonometry Mrs. Maxine M. Hamilton Biology Miss Ada Haymore Latin In The Classroom And Out, Our The long hours of planning and conducting classes, grading and testing do not end a teacher’s work. Constant fund raising campaigns, duties, records, and make-ups for absentees cut heavily into faculty time. Out of school hours are often taken up supervising athletic and music events, practicing plays, advising publications, chaperoning dances and trips, or selling tickets at ball games. Teachers Work That We May Learn MR. ATKINS conducts varsity football. MRS. BARRINGER sponsors student council, is responsible for class night exer¬ cises, helps with transcripts and other senior activities. MR. BARTLEY works with cheerleaders. MRS. BOYLES heads the commercial department and placement of commercial students. MISS HAYMORE sponsors the Latin Club. The school news¬ paper is supervised by MISS HOLDER.

Woodie Science, Mathematics 19 Homework help, class discussions, extra-curricular activities, athletics, gab sessions, parties--school experiences are tied up with the classmates who share them with us. The leaders and the followers, the brilliant and the not-so-bri 11 iant—all types of people enrich our lives and make our year unforgetable. " I WANT ONE of your pictures, too.” Martha Vaughn and Barbara Cheek ex¬ change school pictures and use the paper-cutter for trimming their collections to fit already bulging billfolds. 20 Seniors Conscious of the exalted position and of the wistful glances of underclassmen, seniors begin the long-awaited year happily. Studies and extra activities fill each week so full the months fly by. As graduation nears, happiness is tinged with some sadness. Though eager for the new experiences, each student knows life will never be just the same again. Each will remem¬ ber well this, his senior year.

Freshman, sophomore, junior — all are slowly growing from the position of lonely and bewildered freshman toward that of the assured and leading senior. Classes, activitie s, and as sociations contribute to that growth. It is in the underclassman years that students build a firm foundation for future achievement, form friendships, and experience the happiness and fears that are a part of high school life.

Commercial Department Prepares Students Well MAHS COMMERCIAL GRADUATES f i n d their training pays off in good positions or in sound foundations for further study. Most graduates desiring work find jobs in June or even before school closes. SPEED AND ACCURACY are stress¬ ed in typing class. Rachel Calloway practices her warm-up exercise be¬ fore a speed test. Three teachers offer three courses in bookkeep¬ ing, two in general business, one in office practice, two in shorthand, and four in typing. THE INDIVIDUAL TOUCH makes all the differ¬ ence. Mr s . Draughn, commercial teacher, gives Esther Semones some helpful hints on her short¬ hand technique. JANE EDWARDS EXPERIMENTS with the new Sound S c r i b e r added to the commercial department last spring. She hears the dictation through earphone s and types the recorded message. 61 Music, Physcial Education, And Library Two class sections of chorus and one of band, offering one-half unit credit each, meet daily and give music training to approximately 220 students.

HOMEROOM 108 I Throughout our school year we work and play together in our many enjoyable activities. From the sincerity of Monday morning devotions, the grueling problems in geometry, the hilarious laughter of a class play, or the sore throats follow¬ ing pep rallies, we drift into the dreamy melodious music of the Sweetheart dance and Junior-Senior prom and the sad but also jubilant good-bys of the graduates. From opening day through commencement—we remember it all. SKELETONS, POTTERY, and arrowheads are inspected by Betty Jo Bray, Stewart Smith, and Ray Sutphin. The relics were from a Saara Indian Village approximately 450 years old, found when operations for building a new Mount Airy industry began. Stewart and Ray joined the many excited diggers until the spot was covered by con¬ struction work. 88 Our Year Begins With A Combination This year our beginning-of-school excitement was heightened by new faces. We welcomed our new super¬ intendent and three new teacher s. We welcomed also a large group of trans¬ fer students —some from nearby, some from such distant sections as Pennsylvania, Texas, and Michigan. SUPERINTENDENT B. H.

" My Three Angels, " the 1957 senior play presented April 25, provoked comments of praise from both adults and students long accustomed to plays of the highest quality. Different in plot and setting from previous productions, the play offered an interesting change and pervasive, ironic humor. The three convicts who become the good angels of a sadly harassed h o u s e h o 1 d , were perfectly cast. They and the house¬ hold captivated the audience, as did the unusual set. Walls, hand woven from paper previously painted and cut into strips, bamboo screen, and tropical garden were so realistic viewers felt the French Guiana heat. FELIX DUCOTEL, playedby Dan Slate, ponders whether he should be honest or dishonest with his cousin Henri, who is planning to close Felix ' s shop. 99 Students Choose Leaders STUDENT COUNCIL CANDIDATES, Stewart Smith and Peggy Vogler , con¬ fer with their campaign manager, Worrell Kurtz (left), about the on¬ coming elections.
