The history of our town, the growth of our schools, the constant everlasting presence of the encircling mountains - all these have shaped our lives and made these school years what they are; all these are Our Goodly Heritage. 1925 BRUINETTES BOYS AND GIRLS enjoy the new high school building in the 1950 ' s. IN A BUILDING back of her home Miss Lizzie Gilmore conducted a school for girls in the late nineteenth cen- 3 WE PROUDLY CARRY OUR Circled by mountains, we carry with pride our heritage from them in charac¬ ter, beauty, and way of life. The Blue Ridge - an extremely old range - has been softened, rounded, and made livable and lovable by millions of years of wind and rain. Through the seasons our mountains offer an ever changing, ever satisfying panorama and unparalled opportunities for scenic diversions. Long before the Blue Ridge Parkway became the nation ' s most visited park area, it was a treasured part of our way of life. 4 In colonial times along old Hollow Road from Salem in Wachovia past Pilot Mountain through Fancy Gap across the Blue Ridge Mountains, settlers began to make their homes. Midway between Salem and Wythville, on a high hill, Frank Unithank ' s house became a stage coach stop-called Mount Airy because travelers found it cool and airy. By 1850 the " magnificent " road across Fancy Gap, kept up by public tolls, was the only graded passway along the mountains for 7 5 miles and an important passenger and com¬ mercial outlet. Naturally a hotel was Mount Airy’s first business. In 1885 the town-then with no def¬ inite shape or permanently located streets- was incorporated. There were few " clear¬ ings " outside the yards and gardens, the whole ridge being almost original forest. Mount Airy today i s more than the incor¬ porated town of 7,000 plus; it is really Greater Mount Airy Township which has a population of approximately 22,000- a large increase over 1850’s 400 persons. MOUNT AIRY ' S MAIN STREET before the automobile. EARLY INOURCENTURY a car was indeed a proud possession. PAST IN 1890 Mount Airy was being promoted as a sum¬ mer resort. AND PRESENT EFFORT MAIN STREET, Mount Airy, N, C. - 1960 Early MOUNT AIRY FIRE DEPARTMENT The present town shows a thriving, growing people on the go. Besides its attractive scenery, homes, school, churches, and stores, Mt. Airy proudly boasts of its splendid " Y " , its improved Health Department, new hospital, new adequate sewage plant, and the correction of traffic problems with one-way streets and parking lots. Mount Airy ' s textiles, furniture, plastics, and appliances have become world famous; its Bright Belt tobacco is sought by major leaf companies; its gran¬ ite beautifies prominent structures throughout the country. Best of all, its people retain the her¬ itage that makes the " Granite City " also the " Friendly City. " MAKE MOUNT AIRY THE 7 From many past influences and the work and dedication of many people has evolved our present MAHS -- the pride of today, the hope of tomorrow. r OUT OF CENTURY OLD EMERGES This 1910 group of Mount Airy students contains now prominent citizens. The young ladies of Miss Graves ' School, oper¬ ated in the late 1800 ' s became quite accom¬ plished. Miss (; I;A V |-:s- school MOON I AlRIf N. C. Sometime prior to 1856 Mount Airy ' s first school was conducted by a Mr. and Mrs. West in a small building not far north of Judge Graves ' residence. In 1856 Doctor Reed and his wife took over the school. 1860 - ROCKFORD ACADEMY GRANTED T.F. Prather sold to a group of citizens land for the community ' s first free school. Rockford Academy was opened for males. Girls still had to attend private schools. 1896 - ACADEMY OPENED TO GIRLS For the first time free education was provided for females. However, around the turn of the century the academy was destroyed by fire. 1904 - ROCKFORD SCHOOL REBUILT A new brickbuilding was constructed on the same site. Original part of the present Rockford School was supple¬ mented by a small frame building on the lower lot. 820 pupils enrolled at that time. 1916 - SOUTH MAIN STREET SCHOOL ADDED South Main Street School was opened as a high school with 258 students. 679 elementary pupils remained at Rockford. 10 OUR PRESENT M. yi. Ji. 6. 1917 - NORTH MAIN STREET SCHOOL ADDED First and second grade pupils from the north side of town were transferred to North Main School, then a small frame building. 1922 - NEW NORTH MAIN SCHOOL A new brick school was built on North Main. Rockford School was remodeled. 1933 - BANNERTOWN SCHOOL Bannertown School came into the Mount Airy school district. 1951 - NEW HIGH SCHOOL Students from South Main School were transferred to the new high school on South Street. South Main School was made a Jr. High. Mount Airy High School 1951_ Mount Airy High School 1916 - 1951 Now South Main School Rockford Street School in the " twen¬ ties. " This view is from the west side. Classrooms at the back were a recent addition. 1960 - JR. HIGH MOVED Grades 7 and 8 were moved to the new extension of the High School. South Main School housed grades 4-6; Rock¬ ford Street became a primary school; and North Main, an elementary school for walking students. 1961 - ONE HUNDRED YEARS LATER After a hundred years of public education, the Mount Airy school system comprises 3,184 students, 121 teachers (641 students and 27 teachers in high school), and property valued at $2,034,500. Remodeling and additions are in progress at Bannertown School and the J.J. Jones School. The Ashby home next to South Main is to be converted to an administration building, and a 13 acre tract on Old Springs Road has been purchased for a future elementary school. i i Heritage 3rom Dedicated (3eacfiers Dives mam (Left) MRS. KATE BARRINGER returns to MAHS for a visit and looks at early school pictures with Airmont co-editor Missy Clark. A vital personality in our school life has been absent since Mrs. Barringer became ill late in 1958. Teachers and students continue to miss her stimu¬ lating force and her infectious enthus¬ iasm. Mrs. Barringer admittedly loved teaching. She was articulate, straight forward, dramatic and dy - na m i c , generating enthusiasm for learning and thinking. As student council adviser she demonstrated an interest in the welfare of the entire student body and wisely guided the forming of school p o 1 i c i e s . Mrs. Barringer didn ' t know what an in¬ fluence she has been -- and is -- in this school and in this community. Present school personnel and the many MAHS graduates who felt her in¬ fluence in years past will remain in¬ debted to Mrs. Barringer ' s teaching and personality. Mrs. Kate Mitchell Barringer died January 10, 1961. WORKING IN Mount Airy schools for 25 years as teacher, student council adviser, and friend, Mrs. Barringer has built for us an immeasurably rich heritage. On On Our Scdool, On Our ' down Retiring last spring, Miss Ada Haymore left a big gap in our school life and even bigger memories of love and respect. For 32 years, along with know¬ ledge of Latin, she gave her students a liberal edu¬ cation in her exacting standards of conduct, disci¬ pline, and work and in her continued interest in all phases of life. MISSHAYMORE ' S LOVE of Latin and of her " youngsters " built not only an unusually strong Latin department but also a strong in¬ fluence on generations of students. MISS HAYMORE (END OF TABLE) enjoys a farewell banquet with her Latin IV class and receives a watch from the Latin Club. From the past 1800 ' s - Miss Lizzie Gilmer operated one of the private schools for girls. 1902 - Surry County had 81 teachers. The average salary was $22.50 a month. School property was valued at $35,000. 1916 - Teachers were paid $38.00 per month. School property valuation rose to $120,000. 1916 - There were no longer any log school houses in the country. 1951 - New high school was dedicated and put into use. (RIGHT) 1960-61 seniors work on a journalism assignment. (BELOW) These 1951-52 senior English students were a part of the first graduating class from the new high school.

Hurst Spuerintendent Mount Airy City Schools 1921 - 1927 Followed by Mr. Sheppe and Mr. Turlington Through the years a smooth working, strongly aca¬ demic school system was fashioned by dedicated school boards, administrators, and teachers. Recent community participation, through the school study groups, resulted this year in the elimination of activity period and the addition of an extra class period. Mr. L. B. Pendegraph, superintendent 1927 - 19 57, and Dr. Moir S. Martin, school board chair¬ man 1923 - 1957, worked closely together for a smooth-running school of high standards. Superintendent B. H.

One of the many victims of the depression, the paper suspended publication from 1930 to 1937.

Phyllis Arrington, chief, Crystal Belton, and Judy Merritt add color and encouragement to the excitement of tournament play. COACH SAM MOIR (center) reviews scores with outstanding players of the 59-60 basketball season: Tommy Childress, Jim Sessoms, and Trent Harkrader.

MAHS Bruinettes look forward to a better season this year although two sophomores, Janie Clifton and Elizabeth Cockerham, will probably see regular duty. Betty Jo Pulliam and Linda Weiborn give the team experienced guards, but captain Becky Frank is the only senior forward returning. The Sixteen-game schedule, compared to last year ' s eleven, also con¬ tributes to the brighter outlook. In their first two games the girls lost to Thomasville (34-41), won over Wilkes Central (44-43). SYLVIA DRAUGHN gets off a shot over the heads of her guards. 117 Cate Season Slump Drops 1960 Bears Despite their desire to give Coach Moir a champion¬ ship as a going away present, the Bears, after a league- leading season, went into a late slump that sent them into the final game tied with Bessemer and Gray for AAA Conference Championship. A one point loss to Reidsville in that crucial game dropped the Bears to a final third place standing.

The club held meetings over the present Times office. Rarely enough are we able to express our sincere appreciation to those among us who have be¬ come such a vital part of our everyday lives. Sometimes we develop a natural tendency to take them for granted. Such an attitude develops easily if that person may be relied upon to be an untiring worker, constant inspiration, and true friend. For her work with and for the Airmont staff we eagerly take this opportunity (a page we slipped in without her knowledge) to express to Miss Simpson our often unspoken but heartfelt. 3fian£s MISS SIMPSON ' 60 - 61 Airmont Staff L. 143 THEME, COVERAGE, FUNDS — all require advance planning, then hard work. Co-editors, Ann Franklin and Missy Clark (LEFT and 2nd from RIGHT); copy editor, Laurie Semones; business man¬ ager, Lavinia Brown; and photographers, Richard Hall and Bill Bradford, pool ideas for the ' 61 Air- mont. Our 3ina! Word Airmont acknowledges with appreciation the help extended by the many people who took time to tell us about Mount Airy ' s past, let us use their treasured old pictures and ma¬ terials, and gave us encouragement. We enjoyed delving into our past and learn¬ ing more about the early forces that shaped our present. We hope you find this Airmont a treasured record of our 1960-61 school year -- the friends, activities, fun, and work -- and of the past -- our goodly heritage. Apprecia¬ tion of both will grow with the years.
