F.H.A. MEMBERS Edna Moseley and Polly Kirkman prepare for the mother and daughter banquet, a new feature of the home economics class. 3 ASSEMBLIES, DRAMATICS ENTERTAIN and develop us. Dan Pendleton models his sister ' s formal under violent protest. His mother, Gail Allen, tries to restrain Dan as his sister, Libby Tesh, teases. DEVOTIONS, Y-CLUBS add a spiritual dimension to our experiences. Oa i w (ABOVE) OUR WORLD EXPANDS as we study different systems. (BELOW) AS A SYMBOL OF CITIZENSHIP AND PATRIOTISM Harold Warren and Johnny Badgett each morning raise the flag. 3ovewovd Within the walls of home and school or on the local streets our world seems small. From a fa¬ vorite parkway overlook the mile on mile of moun¬ tains, valleys, towns, and farms form a limitless expanse -- our broadeningworld. This year each experience and contact, each fact and new idea, each problem solved or lesson learned expands our horizon. Our activities are in this eighth edition of Airmont. As the year ' s memory grows dim and almost erases from the mind our happy, carefree times, turn these pages and recapture your EXPANDING HORIZON.

A NEW SCHOOL DAY begins as Mike Marion, Genevieve Norman, Betty Collins, and Brenda Marshall prepare to enter the doors of learning. 11 I MRS. HAMILTON, Mrs. McKinney, and Mr. Limer carry their homework as they leave school. SUPERINTENDENT B. H. Tharrington discusses the school population map with Mrs. Robert Smith and Mrs. George Wright, who helped in its making. The map is being used in planning a school building program. The friendly, cooperative atmosphere that is distinguishing characteristic of Mount Airy HighSchool is not a matter of chance. Through the years, faculty and administration have worked with the students to build and maintain the good feeling apparent among all groups -- the feeling that contributes greatly to our ex¬ panding horizons. 12 SCHOOL FINANCES ARE studied by Mr. Robert Smith, school board chairman; and Mr. B. H. Tharrington, school superintendent. PRINCIPAL H. M. FINCH runs the high school in a manner con¬ ducive to good work, good behav¬ ior, and good fellowship. INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM, teacher re¬ cruitment, physical facilities, finances, public relations -- all claim attention from the administration. Additions to elemen¬ tary school buildings and construction of a junior high are current projects. MR. HENRY ROWE, new school board member, replaces Mr. W. I. Monday, who retired after thirty years ' service on the board. City commissioners reappointed Mr. Roy Nelson, school board member since 1942. Appointments were made for three-year terms. 14 SCHOOL BOARD: (STANDING) Mr. John Wolfe, Mr. S. A. Hennis, Jr., Mr. R. M. Nelson, Mr. Henry Rowe, Mr. Bowman George (SEATED) Mr. R. M. Smith, Supt. B. H. Tharrington, Mr. Marion Burke. L OFFICE ROUTINE RUNS smoothly with Mrs. Lillian Johnson and Mrs. Ann Holyfield, secre¬ taries to the superintendent and the principal respectively, taking care of details. LUNCH IS SERVED to over eight hundred hun¬ gry students by the cafeteria staff: Mrs. Moxley, Mrs. Beamer, Mrs. Jackson, and Mrs. Speight. Mrs. Clemit Edwards (CIRCLE) joined the staff this year. 15 We are unusually fortunate in our excellent faculty - student relationship. A small faculty turnover, a consistant attitude of helpfulness and friendliness, and the maintenance of a high stan¬ dard for conduct and work--all these build mutual respect, liking and a good atmosphere for ex¬ panding horizons. All MAHS teachers hold degrees and A cer¬ tificates. Six have advanced degrees; nine are currently working on MA ' s; one is nearing the end of his work on a Ph. D. Principal H. M. Finch rv y-i " WE HOPE YOU like us! " Principal H. M. Finch welcomes two new teachers to M. A. H.S. Mrs. Geral¬ dine Cloninger replaces Mrs. Shuford in the home economics department and Miss Willie Lou McGee is added to the math department for the only faculty changes. COFFEE, COOKIES, A SOCIAL get- together, and new books mix well as teachers come by the library after school to preview new materials. Mr. Ramey, Mr. Atkins, and Mrs. Bar¬ ringer look over additions in the social sciences. First row: Mrs. Barringer, Mr. Bartley, Mrs. Cloninger, Mrs. Draughn, Mr. Finch, Mrs. Hamilton, Miss Haymore, Miss Holder.

WOODIE AND Mrs. Thomas examine new library books on mathematics. MRS. MACKIE LISTENS attentively to a Span¬ ish translation. FOR OUTSTANDING WORK in MAHS for the past 30 years, Miss Ada Haymore won the 1958 local and district " Oscars For Teachers " award. THE COMMERCIAL TEACHERS, MRS. Drau- ghn, Mr. Bartley, and Mr. Limer industri¬ ously mimeograph tests to be given in com¬ mercial classes. 18 SUCCESSFUL STRATEGY to defeat the East is worked out by star eager Tommy Koontz of North Davidson and Coach Sam Moir. Mr. Moir coached the West to victory in the annual East- West All Star game August 5 in Greensboro. Hours in the classroom, correcting papers, making preparation, and working with extra curricular activities leave teachers little free time during school months. Like other people, however, they like time for home affairs, for recreation and friend¬ ships, and for easing the tensions of work. 7 (TOP RIGHT) MRS. BARRINGER AND Mrs. Mackie are puzzle fans. (BOTTOM RIGHT) MISS SIMPSON ENJOYS music. (CIRCLE) MISS HOLDER, mimeographing exercises for her English classes, practically makes her own textbook. (BOTTOM RIGHT) " HONESTLY, IT WAS this big!” Mr. George Williams and Mr. Charlie Johnson, fishing enthusiasts, swap stories. (BELOW) " WE DO A LOT OF board work. Mr. Reed and Coach Shelton discuss the progress of their respective English classes. " Yea, it does look like you! " comments Sam Inman to Pinky Hennis as he refuses to surrender her colorscope. The bell rings in the morning and a multitude of students scramble for their homeroom to start a new day. Out of momentary confusion grows organization. Study replaces leisure and another year unfolds. Homework, tests, class discussions, extra curricular activities, athletics, parties--all are shared with over 620 classmates. All the familiar faces and different types blend into a pattern never to be forgotten--the MAHS years. 20 t !■ a. i: ■ RICHARD ARMFIELD BILL BABER TOLLIE BARBER JIMMY BARKER DON ANDERSON DON ANDERSON: VIC 3,4.

Spirited discussions of current problems; background for present institutions and events; understanding of social, economics, and political trends; experience in thinking and in finding material — these, found in the social sciences, equip us to continue expanding and enriching our lives. " HERE IS A PICTURE of the submarine. " David Pierce, a civics student, gives a current event from Newsweek .

Painstaking work cutting and sew¬ ing pays off when the clothes are modeled with pride at a fashion show. The endless details of cooking result in a flawless dinner or tea.

Two classes in shop, one in mechanical drawing, and one in carpentry are filled to capacity each year. The carpentry class meets for three hours and carries two units credit. Members of the class also function as the VIC club. Last year ' s club won first place for its exhibit at the annual State Convention of the N. C. Vocational Industrial Club held in Durham. VIC OFFICERS WAYNE JACKSON, secre¬ tary-treasurer; David Simmons , vice- president; Don Anderson, president; and Mr. Williams, adviser, go over the house plan to be used by the carpentry class.
