STAFF SALLY PARR Picture Editor PEGGY WRIGHT Subscription Manager BETH MASSIE Literary Editor DORIS BENNINGTON Advertising Manager x FOREWORD This is a story about us -- 600 boys and girls who have come from the four corners of our county to go to school at Nelson County High. It’s the story in picture of how we live both at work and at play. As time passes we believe that this volume will become more and more valuable to you and will serve its purpose in keeping fresh in mind events which took place during your carefree happy days at N.C.H. S. It is the sincere hope of each member of the staff and the sponsors that this, the first volume of Thos. Nelson, Jr., will perserve for you all of those fond memories of the session 1955-56. To Our Beloved Principal MR. W. L. KIRBY, JR. The 1956 Thos. Nelson, Jr. is dedicated to a man of vision, a man of accomplishment, wise in vision, diligent in duty. He has endeared himself to the heart of Nelson County High School students both for what he has done and for what he is. His dignity and straight forward sincerity demand the respect of everyone who meets him. His true friendliness has warmed our hearts. His gracious courtesy has made our principal also our friend, Mr. William L. Kirby, Jr. In M emory of MR. WINFRED E. KIDD God In his great wisdom has removed from our midst our former Superintendent. We feel most keenly the loss of our friend and leader; and we who knew him so well through the years, desire to express our love for him and our appreciation for all that he has done for Nelson County; we record our grief at his passing and our pride in his accomplishment; we pledge ourselves to carry forward the great purposes to which he gave his life. Dedication of the Nelson County High School November 18, 1955 Unveiling of the portrait of the late Winfred E. Kidd by his granddaughter, Winifree Yeatts. Acceptance of plaque by W. L. Kirby, Jr., Principal, from J. Graham Heath, Chairman of the School Board. Looking on are: J. S. Carter, Orville Karicofe, Superintendent J. B. M. Carter, and Mrs. John Seaman, members of the School Board. Our flagpole is a memorial to George D. Gordon, Jr,, a former Nelson County High School graduate and Naval Veteran who lost his life April 11, 1955. The flagpole was obtained through the efforts of Mr. James E. Cook and Mr. J. B. M. Carter from the War Surplus Agency, of whom Mr. Allyn D. Janney is head. Fellow employees of the Central Virginia Electric Co-operative donated their time and energy to the transportation and erection of the flagpole. We of the Nelson County High School think our flagpole is the most magnificent that any school ever had! SUPERINTENDENTS MESSAGE The Nelson County School Board and I wish to express to the Faculty and Students of the Nelson County High School, our sincere appreciation for the loyalty and co-oper¬ ation given us for the year 1956.

NELSON COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL It has long been the dream of the people of Nelson County to provide its residents with a consolidated high school -- fully equipped --so that anyone who is willing to do so may acquire an education equal to or above that offered anywhere else. This is no longer a dream but a reality. In January 1954, the construction of this building was begun with its completion coming in the summer of 1955. The general contractor was Motley Construction, of Farmville, with the architects being Dixon and Norman. The total building expenses came to $700, 000, and this sum was derived from various sources such as the Battle Fund, State Literary Loan Fund, and the County Building Fund, which was started in 1946. On September 1, 1955, our first term of school began with an enrollment of 606 pupils and a faculty of 27 members, including the principal and the assistant principal. For the first time in the history of Nelson County the student body had the privilege of a wide choice of subjects including agriculture, home economics, music, and foreign languages. Our gymnasium, with athletic directors for both boys and girls, is something we had long dreamed of, but had hardly dared hope would come true. Our cafeteria is not only a place where we enjoy delicious lunches, but meet friends for a brief social period. In our lovely auditorium, which is furnished with elevated seats, we relax and enjoy our assembly programs and other school functions. Our school year thus far has gone smoothly. We have had good times as well as hours of hard and concentrated study. The various sports by our promising athletes and supported by our entire student body are unforgettable in our memory book of fun. A highlight of the year was Homecoming which brought us all closer together in a spirit of understanding and comradeship. The school parties, dances, and band concerts have proven most enjoyable and worthwhile. As we think of and enjoy our fine new high school with its many opportunities, we humbly acknowledge our indebtedness to our beloved superintendent, Mr. W. E. Kidd, who did not live to see the fulfillment of his dream -- a consolidated high school for Nelson County. " An institution is the lengthened shadow of one man, " was said as a tribute to Thomas Jefferson, founder of the University of Virginia, and we give the same honor and praise to Mr. Windred Kidd in his relation to the founding of the Nelson County High School. Under the able leadership of our new superintendent, Mr. J. B. M. Carter, we feel that our school will continue to maintain high standards, and to give us the best training for life. n Wrnmm mm W V " - SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS President BETTY RANKIN MISS MAYS Vice President PEGGY WRIGHT Secretary and Treasurer SALLY PARR Reporter DORIS BENNINGTON JOYCE LORRAINE ADCOCK " Pete " Ambition: To be a Typist FHA, Safety Patrol General Course DORIS JEAN BENNINGTON " Bones " Ambition: Take Trip to Bermuda Annual Staff, Majorette, Choral Group General Course HERMAN WILLIAM BRADLEY " Billy " Ambition: Construction Operator General Course ALICE FAYE BRANCH " Blondie " Ambition: Secretarial Work FFA, Safety Patrol General Course DONNA BROWN " Don " Ambition: To be a Teacher General Course DORIS ANN BRYANT " Doris " Ambition: To Finish High School FHA General Course MARY LEE BRYANT " Rose " Ambition: To be a Secretary Business Course WILLIAM BRYANT " Billy " Ambition: To Work FFA, Safety Patrol General Course ELISE CALLOWAY " Elsie " Ambition: To be a Typist General Course ANNE CAMPBELL " Blondie " Ambition: Uncertain General Course JERRY CAMPBELL " Jasro " Ambition: To Finish School Annual Staff Business Course WALLACE CAMPBELL " Wallace " Ambition: To be a Chemical Engineer Beta Club Academic Course WILLIAM CAMPBELL " Willie " Ambition: To get ahead FFA (Reporter) Vocational Course KATIE MAE CARTER Ambition: To be a Stenographer Beta Club Business Course VIOLET ANNE CARTER " Shorty " Ambition: To get a Diploma Business Course MAE OLIVER CASH " Baby Doll " Ambition: To Work FHA, Safety Patrol General Course MARY COLEMAN " Milkshake " Ambition: To be a Stenographer Library Club Business Course JIMMY DAMERON BETTY LOU FALLS " Lu-Lu " Ambition: To be a Secretary or Stenographer Library Club Business Course GLEASON FERGUSON " Buddy” Ambition: To become a Truck Driver Business Course AUDREY FISHER " Brat " Ambition: To be a Secretary Library Club Business Course LLOYD FITZGERALD " Louie " Ambition: Electronic Engineer General Course WAYNE FLOYD " Jesh " Annual Staff, Football Team Academic Course BETTY SUE FOX " Susie " Ambition: To be a Typist 4-H Club, FHA PATRICIA GLYNN GENTRY " Pat” Ambition: Private Secretary Pres. 4-H Club, Cheerleader, Annual Staff Business Course RAY THOMAS GILES " Razorblade " Ambition: Store Manager General Course SHELBY JEAN GILES " Shirl " Ambition: Secretary Student Council, Safety Patrol Business Course THOMAS PARKER GILES " Tommy " Ambition: Good Job General Course WALLACE GOODE " Wallace " Ambition: Building Contractor 4-H Club, Captain of Safety Patrol Academic Course ALBERT WESLEY HAMILTON " Dickie " Ambition: President of the United States Safety Patrol, FFA General Course ELRIDGE S.
