«.« «- , ' y • I mm vVr ' Ao ‘ vVj. 1 ■ i SHU ■HHMMHM| li ■■■■■■■) !■■■ - I imMiH Nelson County Celebrate 1807 One hundred fifty years! How long the time When measured by man ' s fleeting span. One hundred fifty years! How short the time When viewed from God ' s eternal plan. Carry me back to Nelson County, There ' s where my heart is when the dove at even ' calls; There let me dream near the old Blue Ridge Mountains, Charmed by the music of restless Crabtree Falls. Nelson County was established by an act of the General Assembly on December 25, 1807. At that time Thomas Jefferson was President of the United States. William H. Cabell was Governor of Virginia. The first court was held at Cabellsville on June 27, 1808. On December 31, 1808, an act was passed by the General Assembly fixing the site which is now Lovingston as the permanent seat of justice for the County of Nelson. The first court held in the new courthouse convened on Feb¬ ruary 26, 1810. The original courthouse has been in continuous use to the present time. Additional space was added in 1940. Nelson County faces a rising sun. This sesqui- centennial year, 1957, each citizen should remove his hat to an historic past and turn toward a future of golden opportunity. Nelson County has an abundance of mate¬ rial resources. Agricultural products, orchards, cattle, timber, minerals, game, fish, and scenic beauty are among our material assets. Communication and trans¬ portation facilities are adequate to our needs. All these are important and necessary, but one must look beyond material resources for assets of primary importance. Cornelia said approximately two thousand years ago, " My boys and girls are my jewels. " We know that the boys and girls of Nelson County are our greatest assets - our jewels. They hold the key that will open the door of opportunity for a more abundant life in Nelson County. With God’s blessing the youth of today and the generations to follow will be an honor to Nelson County. May they in turn always deem it an honor to call Nel¬ son County home. 2 150th Anniversary 1957 There let me linger once more in sweet memory, Though far away now my weary footsteps roam; There ' s not a spot in this wide world so lovely. As Nelson County, my dear old childhood home. Nelson County High School TABLE OF CONTENTS TITLE PAGE Page 1 THEME PAGE Page 2 SCHOOL BUILDING Page 4 DEDICATION Page 6 THOMAS NELSON, JR.

It was symbolic that the newly established county should bear his name. Thomas Nelson, Jr. was a man of accomplishment in the cause of American independence. He was a delegate from Virginia to the Continental Congress and was a signer of the Declaration of Independence. When Cornwallis surrendered atYorktown, ThomasNelson, Jr. was there. Although governor of Virginia at that time, he participated in the siege of Yorktown. His rank was that of Major General in the American Army. Thomas Nelson, Jr. was a man of wealth, but this wealth was spent freely in the cause of liberty. ThomasNelson, Jr., Virginia gentleman, patriot, soldier, and statesman, we salute your memory on this one hundred fiftieth anniversary in the history of Nelson County. 7 NELSON COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL •55 - ' 56 September 3, 1955 - the first year at Nelson began with 606 students enrolled.

CARTER Superintendent of Schools In the short time that he has been superintendent of the schools of Nelson County, Mr. Carter has won the admi¬ ration of its people by dealing wisely with the problems that have come through his office. Though his jobs are multitu¬ dinous, he never loses sight of the fact that the schools are for our youth - that above all, it is important to meet the needs of every individual child.

REEF A McGUFFIN General Supervisor Mrs. McGuffin came to us in 1950 as Elemen¬ tary Supervisor. In 1953, she became General Super¬ visor. This position she had actually been filling from the beginning. To every teacher, pupil, patron, or civic leader who comes to her with a problem, she gives her time and her sympathetic understanding. A trouble-shooter unexcelled, she rarely fails to find a satisfactory solution. As a supervisor and as a citizen, Mrs. McGuffin makes daily contributions to the wel¬ fare of the people of Nelson County. mp - 1 1 r 11 i ' ] J MR. RICHARD MOON Visiting Teacher Mr. Moon, better known as " Dickie, " is an alert, industrious, and frequently called upon visiting teacher. Because of his youthful appearance, his good sense of humor, and his ability to get along well with the young as well as the old, he is sometimes mistaken for one of the high school boys. Though he is small is stature, he is great in performance. MR. WILLIAM L. KIRB Y, JR., Principal As our first principal, Mr. Kirby faced a stupendous task of organization. His vision and energy created a school of which we are all intensely proud. Under his dedicated leadership we can confidently expect to go forward. MR. J. W. HARVILLE, Assistant Principal Mr. Harville is truly Mr. Kirby’s right-hand man. A dynamo for work, he solves knotty problems of transportation and discipline each day. His participation in commu¬ nity organization is as varied and as valuable as his administrative work. 12 MISS FRANCES GRANT Secretary Miss Grant is officially secretary to Mr. Kirby, but actually she is secretary for all of us. Her office is as busy as Times Square. Under exacting, some¬ times exasperating conditions, she works quietly and prodigiously. She’s efficient, she ' s gracious, she ' s decorative.

Student Council The Student Council of Nelson County High School is one of the most important organizations in our school. There are twenty-five members on the council. At the beginning of this school year, each student was appointed to one of the eight different committees of which the council is composed. These committees and their duties are as follows: Program -- Provide enjoyable programs to be presented to student body at assemblies. Finance-- Provide any money needed by council to meet its financial needs. Building and Grounds-- See that school property is cared for and kept neat. Social and Recreational-- Provide wholesome recreation for student body. Health-- Promote better health habits for entire school. Safety-- See that safety is emphasized more in school. Cafeteria-- Promote better behavior in cafeteria. Welfare-- Promote better welfare for our school. These committees have already started many of their projects. Among the things achieved are the establishment of an honor-system study hall and " sock hops. " They have proved quite successful. Other things done by the Student Council to better Nelson County High School are the collecting of food for baskets for needy at Christmas, providing tours of our school for seventh grade students through¬ out the county, and the fixing of a bulletin board on safety. Along with the already mentioned accomplish¬ ments, twenty students attended the district Student Council Association meeting at Albemarle High School. This will be held at Nelson next year. At the present time three members are looking forward to attending the state convention to be held at Mary Washington this spring. Now plans for a school song contest are under way, and the obtaining of a state flag is another cur¬ rent project. Even though we have many hopes and aims, the real purpose of this organization is to develop good citizenship, provide wholesome recreation, furnish opportunities for self-improvement, and pro¬ mote a better understanding between faculty and student body. The motto, " Service through the Co-operation of All, " expresses something very important. To keep the Student Council going we need everybody’s help. 20 Left to right: Mrs. Sadie Bryant, Mrs. Nannie Rittenour, Mrs. Ruth Peterson, Mrs. Lois White, Miss Grace Mawyer. Cafeteria Staff MRS. SADIE BRYANT Cafeteria Staff Because of the able director¬ ship of Mrs. Sadie Bryant and the efforts and pleasant dispositions of our cafeteria personnel, our lunch¬ eons feature dishes comparable to those served anywhere. Maintenance man for Nelson County, Muriel Morris, sees that we have the neces¬ sary supplies and wields a hammer when necessary. Head custodian, Preston Foster, does an excellent job of keeping our building and grounds in first-class condition.

Our determination has helped us achieve the goal we have looked forward to so long. We are indebted to the teachers for their untiring efforts in guid¬ ing and directing our journey through school. Some of the happiest years of our lives have been spent here. For each and every one of us the happiest day ever will be graduation, but we sincerely hope that a part of us will remain at Nelson in the years to come. 40 ELIZABETH ALLEN Sunny disposition JAMES ALLEN Quiet JANICE ALLEN Short and sweet H.

It will be our lot to take their places next year, a vision to which we have all aspired since we entered school. In a short time the first bell will b e for us; we will be second to no one (except our be¬ loved teachers). During this school year, we have been working diligently at the many activities the Junior Class al¬ ways undertakes. With the help of our enthusiastic and untiring sponsor, Mrs. Louise Crews, we have accomplished much. In November, we presented " Don ' t Tell Your Father, " a three-act play. In De¬ cember, we became the proud owners of our class rings. In April, after many money-making projects, we decorated the gym and honored our Seniors with the annual Junior-Senior Prom. 53 Juniors JOAN AKERS BARBARA ASHLEY DOUGLAS ASHLEY RAY ASHLEY FAYE BABISH GENE BABISH JULIAN BANTON FRANCES BARRENTINE RITA BEALE MARTHA BOOTH SARAH BROWN GLORIA BRYANT MARIAN BRYANT NANCY BRYANT Juniors CAROL CAMPBELL CAROLYN CAMPBELL EVERETT CAMPBELL OPAL CAMPBELL SHIRLEY CAMPBELL HARRIET CARTER PEGGY CARTER ROGER CARTER WALLACE CARTER WILSON CARTER RONNIE CLARK HELEN CLAYTOR CARL COFFEY BETTY COFFEY 55 Juniors ELIZABETH COOK NANCY COOK GORDON COUPLES BETTY COX CORNELIA CRAIG NELLIE CRAIG CAROL CRITZER BARBARA CUNNINGHAM PHYLLIS DAVIS GEORGE DELK DALE DODD JULIET DODD CHARLOTTE DRUMHELLER MALCOLM DRUMHELLER Juniors MANLEY DRUMHELLER TILGHMAN DRUMHELLER FRANCES DUNCAN CHARLES ELLIS SAMANTHA EMBREY LUCY EWING EUGENE FITZGERALD JEAN FITZGERALD LESLIE FITZGERALD THELMA FITZGERALD LUELLEN FLOYD PAUL FLOYD RAYMOND FLOYD BARBARA GUNTER Juniors GENE GILES HERMAN GILES MYRTLE GILES HELEN GLASS VELMA GLASS JUDY GREINER MILDRED HAMILTON DARWIN HARRIS WILLIAM HARRIS ALTON HATTER DORIS HENDERSON ESTELLE HENDERSON MERRY HIGGS DOROTHY HILL Juniors BONNIE LEE HUGHES MARTHA HUGHES PEGGY HUGHES FRANK JOHNSON JAMES KIDD ROGER KIDD RONALD KING JANE LAWHORNE - y NELL LAWHORNE RACHEL LAWHORNE FRANK LUNSFORD AUBREY McCLAIN IDA MAE MORRIS MADISON MORRIS Juniors DEANNA MARSHALL BOBBY MARTIN LINDA MASSIE PATRICIA MASSIE WILLIAM MASSIE PHYLLIS MAWYER ANN MAYS JANICE NEESE MARY FRANCES NORVELL DORIS PANNEL BILLY PENDLETON RUTH MARIE PETERSON SHIRLEY PHILLIPS EVANDA POWELL Juniors EDITH PUGH RUSSEL PUGH BOBBY PURVIS JUDY REESE BOZY ROBERTS EDDIE ROTHGEB JOYCE SEAMAN LINDA SEAMAN DOLLY SHEFFIELD JANCIE SHEFFIELD WILLARD SIMPSON GLENN SITES REBECCA SLAUGHTER VIRGINIA SLOSSON 61 Juniors EVERETTE SMITH INEZ SPENCER WALLER STEWART BILLY TANNER WILMA LEE TOWLER JEAN TRUSLOW DORIS TURNER JOE TYREE JOYCE TYREE LOUISE TYREE ELAINE WADDELL WAYNE WADE JAMES WARE RAY WHITE Juniors BARBARA WHITEHEAD EDWIN WOOD JANE WOODSON ANNIE LEE WOOTEN PHYLLIS WOODY DORIS WRIGHT Descending!

We will be the first class to graduate having our entire high school here. When we began in the fall of ' 55 there were 213 members in our class. Some have dropped from school since then, leaving 136 at the present. We hope that all of us have resolved to make the best of the opportunities offered to us here. Mr. Sanger, our sponsor, is certainly an excellent one. 65 Sophomores Freddie Adams Mattie Allan Jacob Bond Peggy Bond Stewart Brandt Charles Brown Billy Brush Marian Bryant Dorothy Burge Lottie Burge Edward Campbell Irene Carter Herbert Walkup Jewell Clements Melvin Crickenberger Phyllis Critzer Margaret DeCatur Kenneth Dekay Douglas Dameron Ann Delk 66 Sophomores Marian Farrar Jeannette Ferguson Anne Fitzgerald Barry Fitzgerald Dorothy Fitzgerald Rita Fitzgerald Thurman Fitzgerald Elizabeth Floyd Joyce Floyd Dickie Folsom Andrew Gentry Maxine Giles Kenneth Glass Johnnie Goode Ruby Goolsby Betty Gowen Nora Hamilton Joan Hamlet Ted Harvey Jerry Hatter 67 Sophomores Alice Henderson Nancy Horsley Mary Hudson Nancy Hughes Patricia Hughes Revonda Hughes Tommy Hughes Shirley Iseman Virginia Johnson Pearl Jones Rita Jones Peggy Jordon Woodrow Jordon Marian Kidd James Langran Virginia Langram Anne Lawhorne Calvin Lawhorne Cora Bell Lawhorne Russell McFadden 68 Sophomores Paul McNabb Buddy Martin Elaine Martin Jean Martin Josephine Martin Janet Massie Kent Massie Dorothy Mawyer Eddie Mawyer Reba Mays J.

The Class of ’60 was in the throes of matriculation. After this duty had been looked after, and we were all established, our Freshman days began. A few never- to-be-forgotten days followed. Soon afterwards, small, but very distinguishable ’60 ' s were seen sprinkled around the halls and byways of the school. To a stranger these wanderers could easily be recognized as Freshmen. On October 29 the Freshmen elected their officers and wonderful sponsor, Mrs. Lincoln. During football and basketball season there were many outstanding Freshman players. Al¬ though not used to working together, they compiled a very convincing record. The term is ended; another year has fled. Our turbulent Freshman career nears its close. Our responsibilities, pleasures, anxieties, in the past such real actualities, now are memories and happy thoughts. These days are ones that we’ll never forget and always cherish. 73 Freshmen Marshal Adams Wayne Allen Dale Anderson Frances Ashley Sammy Baber Frances Banton Lucy Barlowe Rose Marie Barentine Gene Beard 74 Michael Beasley Larry Boyd Virginia Branch Reed Burnley Brenda Campbell Bruce Campbell Mary Campbell Nancy Campbell W.

The importance of this organization can be demonstrated by the fact that a national safety association credits it with saving the lives of some 400 students. Members of the patrol are expected to set an example of proper behavior.

Club Future Teachers of America is a national professional organization sponsored by the National Education Association. The session 1956- 1957 marks the beginning of this club in Nelson County. The goals of the club are to create student interest in teaching as a career and to improve the quality of American citizenship. We realize the influence our late superintendent, W. E. Kidd, had on education in Nelson County; therefore, we have named our club in his honor. I 94 Keep Virginia Green Mr. Harris Puckett - our dedicated Agriculture Teacher.

Forestry Judging Contest at Charlottesville and the Central District Contest at Powhatan in November. Judging events included estimating board feet volume in standing trees; estimating cubic feet volume in standing trees; tree identification; selective cutting; log scaling; and woodland management problems. 96 In less than two years Mr. Sanger has developed a band of which all Nel- sonians are proud. Its marching unit puts on intriguing half-time shows; it has received creditable ratings in sev¬ eral competitions. A drum major and three majorettes, selected and trained by Mr. Sanger, add sparkle and charm to this colorful group. The concert band presents two major public performances each year. These are carefully rehearsed and en¬ thusiastically attended. Concert Band A crowning achievement was the " Superior " rating which the band won at the District V Music Festival last spring. Seven outstanding Nelson bandsmen have been chosen to attend the Sectional All- State Band which will assemble at Waynes¬ boro on February 8, 9. and 10. Because of Mr. Sanger ' s talent and energy, many of our students are develop¬ ing new skills and appreciations; musically our entire community is being enriched.
