J. W. HARVILLE Assistant Principal From its very beginning, September 1955, Mr. J. W. Harvillehas been a vital part of Nelson County High School. Mr. Harville, who came to Nelson from Drewyville High School, received his B. S. Degree from Hampden-Sydney and his M. Ed. Degree from University of Virginia. As Assistant Principal his duties are many and varied. He undertakes each of his tasks as though it were the most important, thereby performing all duties well. He is not only Assistant Principal and Ed¬ ucator, but a friend to all who know him. We are proud to dedicate this, our year¬ book, the 1958 Thos. Nelson Jr. to Mr. J. W. Harville. Mr. Harville as we frequently see him - as official timer. With him are Ricky Powell and Wayne Wade. 3 TABLE OF CONTENTS ■ ' TITLE PAGE Page 1 THEME PAGE Page 2 SCHOOL BUILDING Page 4 and 5 DEDICATION Page 3 HISTORY Page 6 ADMINISTRATION Page 13 FACULTY Page 18 STUDENT COUNCIL Page 24 ACTIVITIES Page 7 SENIORS Page 30 JUNIORS Page 44 SOPHOMORES Page 54 FRESHMEN Page 60 CLUBS Page 71 MUSIC ORGANIZATIONS Page 89 SPORTS Page 99 SUPERLATIVES Page 123 STATISTICS Page 134 ADVERTISING Page 139 4 , 7 THE • « ' - : ■ ■ r ’ 1 , | y t- jk k V ft pa jesjs?x?i MR. J. B. M. CARTER Superintendent One reason why we at Nel¬ son County High School have such a sense of well-being is that we know that Mr. Carter, our superintendent, is work¬ ing constantly in our behalf. It is not easy to keep teachers in the classroom, school buses running, and school children happy, but he succeeds in do¬ ing all three. We are indeed appreciative of the interest that he manifests in our ac¬ tivities and his faithful at¬ tention to the school ' s wel¬ fare.

REEFA McGUFFIN, General Supervisor - If you need help, she ' ll heed your call. MR. RICHARD MOON, Visiting Teacher - His jobs are too numerous to mention! 15 MR. W. L. KIRBY, JR. Principal As principal, Mr. Kirby is responsible for the smooth administration of our school. It is a responsibility which he discharges with exceptional ability. In fact, things move so smoothly at Nelson that we rarely are conscious of his careful planning, watchful supervision, and firm direction. Because there is need, he has cheerfully accepted numerous assignments not normally a part of the principal ' s work. He directs both the junior and senior plays and he coaches girls ' basketball and the J. V. baseball team. If a teacher is absent and no substitute can be found, Mr. Kirby takes over the class¬ room. If there is trouble in the pump or furnace room, he becomes a mechanic. It is however, as a friend and sympathetic ad¬ visor that we value him most. He is not niggardly with praise when we have earned it; no more does he fail to reprimand when we deserve it. Mr. Kirby does his utmost to make Nelson the best school of its class. He asks the same effort of us. MISS FRANCES GRANT, Mr. Kirby’s secretary, but one who belongs to all of us. 16 m ( ■» " mg m— — 1 gf 0 $ HP - t-. » — — •NHIfl MM ■M 3 M M th «Mtt Mfr Mi MNK ■ 4m MV ■ Nl ■ MR. J. W.

Nelson, Jr., 1958. At last after many weeks of patience and inspiration, not to mention endurance, it has reached completion. As you rummage through the pages of the year¬ book from time to time, you will never realize how much work has gone into it. All of the job was not done by the members of the staff alone. Many others willingly gave time and effort to help. The faculty was always ready to give us a hand. Their leniency in excusing various people on the staff at practically any time was greatly appreciated. We also acknow¬ ledge the generosity of the administration with school facilities, especially those used as props in pictures. Our advertisers were wonderfully co-operative again this year. Without their continued support, this yearbook would have been impossible. Not only did they give their means, but the majority of them met us with a smile, and gave us a word of encouragement as we left their respective places of business. For these kindnesses we are very grateful. As you know, there a re two people without whom this annual would have been an even more terrific chore. These are Mrs. Lillian Coleman and Mrs. Mary Roberts. Mrs. Coleman’s Dodge has really covered territory this year not to mention Mrs. Cole¬ man, herself. Mrs. Roberts has kept accurate records of all our transactions, and either supervised or typed all of the copy. Another thing, an annual is not an annual with¬ out pictures. We give full credit to Mr. James Gra¬ ham and his photographers for the pictures taken. Several students and teachers furnished us with snap¬ shots of some of the school activities. The Amherst Publishing Company, Lynchburg News, and Waynes¬ boro News-Virginian gave us other indespensable photographs. We want to thank them for being so co-operative. This year we dedicated Thos. Nelson, Jr. to our energetic Assistant Principal, Mr. Harville. We all want this annual to be a reminder of the past that he will never forget just as we shall never forget him for his many services in our behalf. The planning and making of this book was a great experience. We hope it will always bring back mem¬ ories of this year at Nelson County High School.
