Furthermore, it must have the best possible facilities if the task Je cMonis wellaccompli shed. The peo ple of Nelson County, in recognition of this fact, have made many sacrifices to provide their young people with a fine the?county in the field of education! Two of the more " important strides forward have been a consolida¬ tion of high schools and the more recent additionof an eighth grade. Having one high school has resulted 111 a feeling H uut hro ughout the county.. The school building and grounds have served“iTot only as a praWTTSWcmon, but to facilitate community social, cultural, and intellectual growth. In ages past and indeed today, knowledge, growth, and learning have all been and still are synonymous with one word - book. Indisputable is the overwhelming importance of books of all types to progress in tiic arts and learning. In truth, nothing is so important to the field of education as the printed word. Ihis, the importance of book learning, whether it be volumes upon volumes of them, or only one not so unusual textbook, is the theme of the Thomas Nelson, Jr. for 1961. " There is no frigate like a book. " 5 A memorial to the past A symbol of hope for the future Our flag pole was erected to the memory of George Gordon, Jr. ' The library at Nelson County High School, by means of the endeav¬ ors of the staff and community cooperation is taking on the aspects of a well established institution. To this portion of our building, the storehouse of past and present knowledge, we dedicate our yearbook. THEY CAME IN SEARCH OF KNOWLEDGE f jT ' kM-- ;4.

' -v-V HA YS TO RE MBER — TYPINC The students of Nelson County High feel that they have real friends as their administrative of¬ ficers. We are proud to think that their aims and our ideals are he same - new ways to make our high school the best of its kind. Mr. J.B.M. Carter always strives to further this. His ever-ready wit, his genuine interest in each school project, his unfailing joviality make him a vital part of our school life. This excep¬ tional combination of thorough efficiency and friendly good will have made us realize that we are privileged to have Mr. Carter as Nelson County Superintendent. MRS. JUNE HARRIS, Secretary, friendly and efficient. I RICHARD MOON, Visiting Teacher Mr. Moon ' s kind hearted interest in each Nelson County child, - even the laggards on the edu¬ cational path, is an attribute which gives him great popularity among the students. With a word of encouragement, praise, or wise counsel, as the occasion demands, he has helped many to complete their high school education. MRS. REEFA McGUFFIN, General Supervisor So many people appreciate the talents of Mrs. McGuffin that it ' s impossible for us to keep her with us much. She has one of those rare personalities which prove attractive to everyone, always smiling when it does the most good. We are very fond of Mrs. McGuffin and cheerfully share her with the other county schools. 21 MR. W. L. KIRBY, JR. Principal The principal of a school might well be compared to a general marshalling his army for battle. In the longest battle of mankind ' s history, that against ig¬ norance and intellectual suppression, the only truly effective weapon is universal education. For five years since the founding of our school, Mr. Kirby has been in the foremost ranks of the forces of knowledge. His guiding hand has been of inestimable value in shaping the school policy and in the enrichment of its pro¬ gram. A person of many talents, Mr. Kirby has time and again demonstrated his versatility in all fields. He has used these gifts in the best interest of the youth of Nelson County High. 22 JAMES BRAWLEY Assistant Principal As assistant principal at Nelson County High, Mr. Braw- ley has performed many diffi¬ cult administrative tasks, and as a teacher of great worth has fully utilized his abilities in classroom instruction. Amiable and ever ready with a word of friendly advice, he is admired by all. He willingly undertakes ad¬ ditional assignments and gives untiringly of himself at all times. Because of these quali¬ ties and many more, he has become one of the greatest assets in our school. J. A. MICHAEL Assistant Principal With each year that Mr. Michael has remained on the administrative staff as assistant principal, his services have increased so that now they are practically indispensable. Manifesting a good natured ap- proachability, he is affable to all who know him. This characteristic so seldom en¬ countered has endeared him to the hearts of the students who have benefited from his wise counsel. REBA MAYS, Secretary She is never too busy to lend a helping hand. 23 IN MEMORY RUSSELL MASSIE HENDERSON 1934 - 1961 He walked among us - for a little while - his cheerful smile and courageous spirit, making our lives richer for his having been in our midst, Books - the Bridge Between Child and Faculty ■ " - m NELSON COUNTY HIGH HAS SEVEN NEW FACULTY MEMBERS ■ » k ■ ' 2-1 2 ? »-• ■ |... ” ■f£r . rr VC JAMES BRAWLEY Assistant Principal General Science LINDA CRAIG Librarian EMILY BRUGUIERE English LOUISE CREWS American History Latin LILLIAN COLEMAN Guidance Geography MADELINE GARDNER English American History DANNA COOK Plane and Solid Geometry Trigonometry, Gen.

J. A. MICHAEL Mr. Michael, who is doing his grad¬ uate work in guidance, served as chairman of the Guidance Committee this year. While his duties are largely administrative, he is available in the capacity of advisor to the other members of the department. Mr. Michael and Mrs. Whitehead jointly did a follow-up study on a number of the former graduates of Nelson County High School. The information is on file for those who are interested in what the study revealed. Mrs. Whitehead was assigned an ad¬ ditional hour for counseling for the term of 1960-61. This gives the two counselors, Mrs. Whitehead and Mrs. Coleman, time to collaborate on the over-all work of the department. 30 A student and athlete of great ability, " Chuck " is one of the most versatile memr bers of the student body. He has rendered great services to the school in the capacity of S.C.A. president, and is well liked by all who know him. CHARLES HARVEY, President of Student Council 31 SEATED, left to right: R.

STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council is a student-elected group devoted to the betterment of our school and service to the school and student body. It is not self-governing, but strives for better citizenship through student participation. The organization is divided into committees which carry on the work of the Stu¬ dent Council. The committees and their respective chairman are as follows: Program - Madeline Higginbotham; Cafeteria - Linda Hughes; Welfare - Judy Simpson; Health and Safety - Peggy Jo Taylor; Building and Grounds - Billy Bullock; Social - Mary Vance Langran; Objective - Chuck Harvey. Among the projects carried out by the Student Council are the following: collect¬ ing food and clothing for the needy at Christmas; sponsoring " record hops " throughout the year; providing tours of the school for incoming seventh-graders; awarding a plaque to the club that contributed the most to the school in the past year; and sponsoring the school newspaper, " School Echo. " The Student Council works continually to improve the health and welfare of our school and to develop a better understanding between teachers and students. 32 " CHUCK " HARVEY - President S.C.A.

A DAY IN FRENCH CLASS In a small, fourth period class in Room 7, twelve students, representing nearly every class in school, are learning to speak the beautiful language of the Frenchman (it ' s called FRENCH). Most of us are in a very lively, good humor because of having had lunch (lunch?). Since the class is so small we are always very informed. Our teacher allows us to talk anytime we like - as long as it is in French I If only to take ad¬ vantage of this uncommon privilege, we con¬ stantly bungle along with our fractured French.

" Our graduates have an opportunity to enjoy a life of freedom, plenty and indi¬ vidual choice — privileges earned by our forefathers. However, we have a responsibility to perpetuate these privileges. They are not given us for free 77 . We must earn them ourselves. Individual devotion to The American Way is as important today as it was in 1776. Today ' s graduates must shoulder this responsibility, or there will be no freedoms to bequeath tomorrow ' s students. As Goethe, the poet, said, " What you have inherited from your fathers, earn over again for yourselves or it will not be yours.
