■ ii ' " . w ‘ r ' l-.v:; 1 V THE GOVERNOR NINETEEN HUNDRED SIXTY-FIVE NELSON COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL LOVINGSTON, VIRGINIA Sponsor Catherine G. Lincoln Co-Editors Carolyn Robertson Margaret Robertson CARPE DIEM, freely translated, means " Seize the immediate opportunity. " Nelson County High School seeks to provide these opportunities not only in the academic, vocational and business areas, but also on the athletic field and in extra¬ curricular activities. Since what one becomes tomorrow is largely determined by what he does today, the chance for accomplishment is limit¬ less for those who welcome every challenge and take advantage of every opportunity. CARPE DIEM! FOREWORD 2 The business students find that instruction in office machines is valuable in preparing them for their jobs in the future. There have been some very favorable reports on the success of the Russian class that was started at our high school in September.

INCREASED OPPORTUNITIES The citizens of Nelson County have increased the opportunities for learning by financing the new add¬ ition to our high school. Here one will find new library facilities, a new science room, language labo¬ ratories and much-needed class¬ room space. Mr. Harville and Mr. Carter study the blueprints during the construction.

Carter Superintendent of Nelson County Public Schools DEDICATION To one who has long deserved the honor, we humbly dedicate this yearbook. This dedication is but a small token of our heart¬ felt appreciation for his untiring devotion to his duty of providing the best possible educational facilities for the young people of Nelson County. 7 Capitol Building at Richmond, Virginia Nelson County High School is fortunate to include in its ad¬ ministrative officers and faculty people who come well pre¬ pared to be of service to the school. They have much to offer and, though their duties are varied and difficult, they per¬ severe in our instruction and guidance through our formative years. Let us not fail to make the most of the opportunity of profiting by what they have to give us. Carpe diem. We welcome the new teachers who have joined us for the 1964-65 session. THESE ARE THE CHANNELS THE NELSON COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD Mr. Oi ville Karicofe, Mr. J. B. M. Carter, Clerk, Mr. Graham Heath, Chairman, Mr. Addison Payne, Mrs. Catherine Seaman. Mr. J. B. M. Carter Superintendent Mr. J. W. Harville Assistant Superintendent 10 Mrs. Reefa H. McGuffin General Supervisor OF GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY IN NELSON COUNTY Mrs. Dean Bibb charge of book sales. Part Time Stenographer Mrs. Dorothy White Mr. Price is never too busy to be of assistance. SECRETARY ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL Mr. C. M. Price, Jr. OUR PRINCIPAL Mr. J. W. Harville We will ever be thankful for our principal ' s counsel and encouragement during the school year. We recognize his untiring aid in pro¬ viding those " golden opportunities " for learning. Mr. Harville dictates the daily announcements to his secretary, Mrs. White. 13 ENGLISH DEPARTMENT Mrs. Mary Anna H. Griggs Mrs. Sarah C. Crumpler Mrs. Carolyn H. Salter Mrs. Faye P. Rutherford Mrs. Sandra H. Eagle Miss Irene Hughes was absent when picture was taken. The function of the English Department is threefold: to excite interest through an understanding of the relationship of literature to life, to emphasize the importance of clear, concise oral and written expression, and to instill a knowledge of the structure of the English language. Encour¬ aging creative ability and making the study of English a practical and vital experience are fur¬ ther aims of the department. SOCIAL STUDIES DEPARTMENT Mr. Stephen C. Davis Mrs. Sandra N. Robbins Mrs. Madeline B. Gardner Mrs. Lillian R. Coleman Mrs. Catherine H. Whitehead The basic aim of the Social Studies Department is to give the students an awareness of the world in which they live. To gain such an understanding it is necessary for students to study the past, basic geographic concepts and citizenship which built together enable students to go forth into the world as intelligent inquisitive people. SCIENCE DEPARTMENT Mrs. Hazel H. Morrell Mrs. Cookie D. Woods Mr. John T. White Miss Ruth Androvich The Science Department has the opportunity and privilege of guiding the normal curiosity of high school students toward a serious interest in their natural environment and the changes it may undergo. The emphasis is placed on adopting the material presented to the individual as to create a better appreciation of the world in which he lives. MATH DEPARTMENT Mr. Charles E. Cox Mrs. Regina G. Withers Mrs. Rose E. Mason Mr. James C. Johnston The new five-year program as suggested by the change to " modern” math has been in effect for the second year. This senior class will be the last group to finish under the old program. A new addition this year to the usual Math 9 was the supplementary S. M. S. G. material thereby making the course more meaningful and profitable. 15 t I HOME ECONOMICS DEPARTMENT Mrs. Nancy T. Parr Mrs. Faye W. Huffer The study of homemaking is of value to students enrolled in all high school programs. Every girl is a potential homemaker and work of this type not only helps her to develop as a person, but also to prepare for the most important of all vocations, that of homemaking. AGRICULTURE AND FARM MECHANICS Mr. E. Harris Puckett Mr. Carlton T. Clarke Nelson County High School offers a four-year program in vocational agriculture which is plan¬ ned to acquaint and prepare students for the many occupations in the industry of agriculture. The program includes plant and animal science, mechanical drawing, welding, electricity, in¬ ternal combustion engines, hot and cold metal, woodwork and other areas. 16 BUSINESS EDUCATION DEPARTMENT Mrs. Pauline B. Harvey Mrs. Mary C. Roberts Mrs. Catherine G. Lincoln One of our aims in the Business Education De- partment is to help make the transition from high school to the initial job a satisfactory one for both the student and the employer. We feel that we can accomplish this by using the latest textbooks and teaching methods in developing the skills required for the clerical and stenographic jobs. FOREIGN LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT Mrs. Caroline C. Tucker Mrs. Beverly D. Hill Mrs. Joanne F. Lee The Foreign Language Department hopes that in teaching children Latin, French, Russian or Spanish we will enrich their lives with a language other than their own, and also with a glimpse of the life, people, and customs of the lands in which that language is spoken. LIBRARIAN PHYSICAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT Front Row: Mrs. Hazel H. Morrell Mr. J. Sherman League Miss Frances Faucette Second Row: Mr. A. Wayne Mahanes Mr. C. M. Price, Jr. Mrs. Lynn F. Clarke The new library has provided much needed space for the librarian’s work and for the storage of audio-visual equipment. There is sufficient space for seating more students and for books to be added in the future. The Physical Education Department is placing its emphasis on physical fitness for all students through vigorous exercise. Our aim is for each student to be fit enough to pass the minimum physical fitness test set up by the Federal Program. In addition, we are stressing the basic skills and rules of a number of sports. The three-year unit plan is being used in the health classes, covering 1 3 of the book each year. MUSIC DEPARTMENT The Music Department is made up of band and choral offer¬ ings. Anyone in school is eligible for either organization, upon showing any degree of musical aptitude. The 70-piece band has achieved a degree of repetition in our area both in concert work and in their marching prowess. Playing the most difficult grade VI music last year for the first time, the band received a rating of Good. The same grade will be played again this year. The 48-voice chorus has some of the best singers of the history of the group. By using some of the girls in the tenor parts to help the small group of boys, a well-balanced per¬ forming group is possible. 18 Mr. Robert G. Sanger GUIDANCE DEPARTMENT Mrs. Coleman and Mrs. Whitehead look over some of their brochures on careers. This fall the Guidance Department moved into new quarters and, now that students have learned not to go to the clinic but to what was the Music Department, work is proceeding as usual. The counselors hope that this expansion in space will make pos¬ sible an expansion in services. Mrs. Coleman checks over the blue slips for subject failures. The faculty Guidance Committee, composed of Mr. Price, Mr. Clarke, Mrs. Lincoln, Mrs. Coleman and Mrs. Whitehead, meets once a month to discuss problems in the area of guidance. 19 i ? i. - .,. £■ ■ . ■,- -t kJ • t V -• v v te w« ?% ifdrij.,: - ; f » -v - ' ■ ' - ; « ’ ' •.’ v«.% . • " J ' » ' w The Health Center at Lovingston, Virginia Service to one ' s associates is one of the most rewarding of all human activities, and the need for willing service is om¬ nipresent in every phase of successful operation in every school. To avail ourselves of this opportunity and to develop its fullest possibilities, we must recognize, first of all, that cooperation between the student body and administration is of prime importance. Through cooperative service we can not only find our places in the school, but can also prepare our¬ selves to meet demands that society may place upon us in our adult lives. Carpe diem. Mr. Murril Morris has a place to call his own .... finally. His job as head of main¬ tenance requires storage place for his tools and other equipment necessary for the smooth operation of our county schools. He invites you to visit him in the basement of the new addition. CUSTODIANS Mildred, Preston, and Alexander We would like to take this opportunity to thank our custodians for their efforts in keeping our school clean. We are fortunate to have these three who are dedicated to their work. We were all saddened by the death of Harry Foster who suffered a heart attack on Nov. 1. He will be remembered for his quiet manner in doing his work. Preston Foster stands ready to lend a helping hand. Mildred Foster works in a tireless manner. 22 Mr. White seems to enjoy his lunch line duty. TEACHERS RENDER ADDITIONAL SERVICES Miss Faucette and Miss Androvich help to take up money for ballgame admission. Mrs. Huffer, Mrs. Parr, and Mr. Clarke helped at the concession stand at football games. The Faculty Advisory Committee, selected by the principal, offers sug¬ gestions to improve the operation of our high school. The 1964-65 com¬ mittee is shown at the right.

Mi STUDENT BUS DRIVERS FIRST ROW: Lynn Payne, Gene Roberts, James Campbell, Alvin Hatter, Clayton Small. SECOND ROW: Roger Thomas, Donnie Ste¬ vens, Louis Pace, Wayne Kidd, J. T. Tinnell. THE NELSON COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL SAFETY PATROL 25 THE " KEEP VIRGINIA GREEN " BOYS STUDENT ASSISTANTS RENDER VALUABLE SERVICI Nancy Simpson helps Mr. Price with bus reports. David Bond agrees that writing receipts is an endless task, especially when class rings arrive. Mary Snead finds the intercom helpful in locating students. June Lawhorne types up the morning bulletin. 26 TO OUR HIGH SCHOOL Honor Society members, Sharon Gowen, Susan Fitzgerald, and Donnie Stevens, help with ushering during assembly programs. Carolyn Hodock (center) helps Miss Faucette both on the court and in office clerical duties. Patricia Martin Brenda Phillips Frances Truslow Nellie Quinn Linda Cook The girls who work in the library spend count¬ less hours checking books in and out, placing books back on the shelves, putting up bulletin boards and repairing damaged books. Audrey Jordan Robby Anderson Sue Thompson Anna Gentry Sarah Dillard 27 The Lee Chapel at Lexington, Virginia Competition is the sustenance which nourishes growth and on which success often depends. In the classroom the idea of " your best at all times " is constantly impressed on us, and nothing less than our best is truly acceptable. To compete successfully does not necessarily mean winning over others, but does mean putting forth our best efforts to effect a victory over ourselves. We find opportunity for such self-discipline in all our classes; moreover, our efforts in this direction will better prepare us for successful competition in later life. Carpe diem.

Its success is due to the cooperation and assistance received from the students, the faculty, and the admini¬ stration.

" THE DRAMA CLUB The club, although it is an extracurricular activ¬ ity, attempts to provide students an opportunity to develop effective speech characteristics, stage poise, and a keener understanding of human behavior in a situation in which they can also learn to accept responsibility and to work coop¬ eratively with others. The club strives to attract a membership that maintains a good academic status, dependable work habits, and a desire for personal satisfaction in a job well-done. An activity geared to combine work and fun, the Drama Club ' s second aim is to provide the stu¬ dent body an opportunity to experience the enter¬ tainment of " live " stage productions. The pro¬ gram planned for 1964-65 includes an assembly program of selected scenes, two one-act plays, one three-act play, and participation in the Dis¬ trict One-Act Play Festival.

The Camera Club is an organization designed to promote both interest in the field of photography and to help the amateur photographer improve his photographic technique. In doing this, the club feels that it can make an important contribution to the school community. The active membership, in excess of twenty students, benefits from actual participation in a photographic darkroom laboratory as well as instruction on the simple act of " picture taking. " Emphasis is placed not only on how simple photographic processes take place, but why. 97 The Band Room at Nelson County High School A school without music is a forest without singing birds. Here at Nelson County High School the ’’singing birds” can find ex¬ pression in the music department--the band and the choral group. It is an opportunity for those students of similar in¬ terests to develop their talents through musical education and to give pleasure to those who are not so gifted. Carpe diem.

I., Blacksburg, Virginia In our society, the opportunity for competition is ever present, and competition is only another means toward growth and maturity of ideas. Those participating in the world of sports profit from each contest of skill by learning to exert maximum sincere effort and by practicing sportsmanlike behavior. It is a way of adapting one’s own behavior to fit a pattern at any time of life, whether it be in an athletic contest or in a wider life experience. The coaching staff at Nelson County High School. These people help to make the athletic program worthy of our praise. VARSITY CHEERLEADERS Donna Taylor, Linda Carter, Phoebe Ann Tucker, Emilie Goad, Tanith Kilmartin, Lynn Mitchell, Ann Duncan, and Carolyn Campbell. Our girls in green have worked hard this year to arouse enthusiasm by sponsoring pep ral¬ lies and putting up posters before each game. The group chose Tanith Kilmartin as head cheerleader for the 1964-65 season. 108 THE GOVERNORS We kicked off to a good start with summer training camp and returning lettermen which resulted in our best all- around season. We won nine games and lost only one. We placed four boys on the first team in District 4 All- District team, two boys on All-Central District team and one on the All-State team. The largest crowd ever to witness an athletic contest attended the championship game between Amherst and Nelson. We won 7-0 and brought a lot of honors to the people of Nelson. We have high hopes that a lot of our boys will go on to college and make as fine a showing there as at Nelson.

The first girls ' softball team in the history of NCHS played six games and ended its season with a won three--lost three record. Our major strength was in our hitting power-- every starting player had an above .400 bat¬ ting average. Our main weakness was errors in the field. Although an inexperienced ball club, the team has a great deal of potential and spirit. We plan to play approximately twelve games during the 64-65 season. None of our players graduate; therefore, we look to depth and experience to lead us through a successful season in 1965. Miss Faucette, Coach, instructs her girls before a game. Sarah Davis demonstrates her pitching ability. 1 14 The 1964 girls ' softball team BASEBALL—SPRING 1964 The baseball season brought new faces to almost every position on the team with four juniors, three sophomores, and two freshmen making up the line¬ up for most games. These boys battled every step of the way to bring Nelson County a third place fin¬ ish in the district with a 5-5 record. The record for all games was 5-7. The club scored double victories over Amherst and Appomattox while splitting the games with New London. Double losses occured at the hands of Albemarle, Brookville, and Dan River.
