Harville—Clerk and Superin¬ tendent of Schools Mr. Addison Payne—Chairman Mr. Orville Karicoffe Mrs. John A. Seaman Dr. James A. Gamble The policies set up by the school board govern all Nelson County schools. They also are in charge of expendature of funds for all public schools. The money received for this is gotten through the Board of Supervisors. The school board is concerned with: area of buildings, employment of teachers, bus transportation, main- tenence, and lunchroom work. ADMINISTRATION Reefa McGuffin Supervisor of Instruction, Nelson County. James W. Harville Superintendent of Schools, Nelson County. A view of the improvements of the court house. 30 Linden P. Colley Principal, Nelson County High School. C. M. Price Assistant Principal, Nelson County High School. Nelson County High works endlessly to give it’s students the basic fundamentals needed to prepare them for later life. Courses are offered for any student planning to go into college or business. Mr. L. P. Colley, Principal, and Mr. C. M. Price, Assistant Principal, work diligently to help any student with their varied problems. Tire administration of N.C.H.S. takes education seriously, but provides many extra-curricular activities to help relax students and make them feel more at ease in the class. Pupils are given the opportunity to voice their opinions on many issues before a final decision is made. At. N.C.H.S. the administration is always eager to give advice or aid any student who is willing to put forth the effort to seek it’s counseling. 31 For us, Business Education training has a two fold purpose in objective to the edu¬ cation of our youth: to track the knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed by all people to live in today’s world, and to track the voca¬ tional knowledge and skills needed for initial employment and for advancement in a busi¬ ness career. We try to attain this objective by offering courses in General Busi¬ ness, Recordkeeping, Bookkeeping, Type¬ writing, Shorthand, Clerical Office Practice and Secretarial Office Practice.

Under the expert consul of Dr. Richard Meade of the University of Virginia, the English department has es¬ tablished many new and improved goals. Among these are: the reduction of teaching formal gram¬ mar in all four grades to the 9th and 10th grades only; the additions of “paperback libraries” in some of the English class¬ rooms; and the establish¬ ment of English curri¬ culum guides.

Reid St. Lawrence Univerity, B.A., University of Va., M.A. Two departments at N.C.H.S. are combined to give us Fine Arts. They are music and the library. The music department is made up of band and chorus offerings. Anyone in school is eligible for either organization, upon show¬ ing any degree of musical aptitude. The band, direct¬ ed by Mr. Veron Lewis, has achieved a degree of repetition in our area both in concert work and in their marching prowess. The chorus, under the di¬ rection of Mrs. Delores Truesdale is one of the best that N.C.H.S. has ever had. Made up of an over¬ all chorus and a concert choir, they have shown real talent in the voices of many students. The library, under the supervision of Mrs. Shirley Sullivan, is of great help to any student who wishes to take advantage of its opportunities. There are books for almost any type of reader. Fine Arts play an important role in the life of any student. FINE ARTS Dolores B. Truesdale Virginia State College, B.S. Vernon T. Lewis West Texas State University, B.S. SPECIAL EDUCATION This year has been one of change for the Special Education Program. Emphasis has been placed on indi¬ vidual instruction at each student’s level of ability. This year’s curri¬ culum included instruction in a variety of fields. Language arts, so¬ cial studies, mathematics, and science were the basic areas of in¬ struction, each student being al¬ lowed to progress at his own rate. Many students were able to make considerable progress this year. High school mathematics, biology, as well as algebra and American His¬ tory, were courses taken by several students in the class. Special Educa¬ tion is an integral and necessary part of any good academic pro¬ gram. The improvements already made this year by Mr. Patrick A. Barker, the new instructor, along with those which had previously been made will provide N.C.H.S. with a first rate Special Education Program. Patrick A. Barker University of Va., B.A. 36 FOREIGN LANGUAGE . ’ L _ 3 j is J L.. - iM. Caroline C. Tucker University of Va., B.A., M.A. Students at N.C.H.S. are able to prepare for col¬ lege by taking Spanish, French or Latin. Teachers hope to help language stu¬ dents to understand the language, to be able to read it, write it, and give their own answers when questioned. Through the efforts of the department head, Mrs. Caroline Tuck¬ er, pupils become acquainted with foreign customs and are able to have fun while learning. Latin alone, helps to teach the background of English and the origin of certain words. It is with this type of curriculum that the Foreign Language Department tries to help the student better under¬ stand himself and the world around him. Larry J. Baker University of Va., B.A., M.A. Marion W. Bragg Lynchburg College, B.A. 37 MATH The Math Department plays a very important role in the curriculum of N.C.H.S. Headed by Mr. William N. Moxley, the de¬ partment has many objec¬ tives for 68-69. They hope to develop a coordinated program with the new Junior High School. The staff is also busy with the adoption of new textbooks for the 69-70 school session. There are tenative plans to offer Algebra I to capable 8th graders. Certainly with these objectives in mind, the existing curriculum will be greatly improved. William N. Moxley East Texas State University, B.S., M.S.

Sherman League Shephard College, B.A. PHYSICAL EDUCATION The motto of the physical education department may well be “excellence through mind and body.” Rigorous exercise periods, touch-football games, basketball drills and many other activities provide an opportunity for physical education students to enjoy healthful exercise and learn co-operativeness, precision and sportsmanship. Classroom lec¬ tures on health, hygiene, driver education and discussions on teenagers and their problems develop an awareness of today’s world and a foresight of the future. There can be no doubt that the vigorous efforts of Mr. League and his physical education department have been responsible for the disciplined, well-trained teams that have brought so many honors to Nelson. More than just physical excellence and helpful knowledge are gained from physical education, a kind of spirit, that can only be described as, The Nelson Way. PHYSICAL EDUCATION Judith Lavinder Lynchburg College, B.A. 40 41 SOCIAL STUDIES The department of social studies at N.C.H.S. hopes to inculcate in each student an understanding and appreciation of the culture of which he is a part. Under the direction of Department head Mrs. Marcia Rich¬ ards, the department stresses the value of learning about contem¬ porary issues of today’s world as well as events of the past and hopes to make the student keenly aware of his own role in this world. The depart¬ ment offers courses in four areas of the social sciences: American His¬ tory, World Geography, World His¬ tory , and Government; but is present¬ ly planning to add an additional elec¬ tive.

The Guidance De¬ partment is very im¬ portant to any student at N.C.H.S. With the help of Mrs. Lillain Coleman, Mrs. Catherine Whitehead, and Mr. DeForest Inger- soll, students are given individual help with problems concerning anything from person¬ ality to college. This de¬ partment provides stu¬ dents with individual or group testing, voca¬ tional and educational information on college, scholarships and jobs. Here, too, an individual student record is kept with such things as test results, grades, auto- b i ographies, and questionnaires. De Forrest P. Ingersol Duke University, B.A., University of Va., M.Ed. GUIDANCE 44 VOCATIONAL Warren E. Hankins A. T. University, B.S M.S. The vocational de¬ partment of N.C.H.S. is divided into two sections: Home Eco¬ nomics and Agri¬ culture. The study of homemaking is of great value because every girl is a poten¬ tial homemaker and work of this type helps .her to prepare for the most impor¬ tant of all vocations, that of homemaking. For boys, N.C.H.S. offers a four-year pro¬ gram in vocational agriculture which is planned to acquaint and prepare students for the many occupa¬ tions in the industry of agriculture. Depart¬ ment heads, Mr. E. Harris Puckett and Mrs. Nancy T. Parr have helped to im¬ prove the program for vocational students. E. Harris Puckett University of Virginia, B.S., Virginia Polytechnic Institute, M.Ed. 45 Nancy T. Parr Radford College, B.S. Elina F. Giles Radford College, B.S. In an era of space travel, advanced communications, and electric can-openers, the magnitude and complexities of today’s society require each individual citizen to have a basic understanding of science and how it relates to man’s everyday life. No longer is it sufficient to know only “what is”; the probing question is “why?”. In an effort to encourage student inquisitiveness in this “science for today”, the science department, under the supervision of Mr. John White, is making every at¬ tempt to supply the basic tools through which greater thought may evolve.

BASEBALL 67 K ■ V % I a ?, ■- |J -A» ACTIVITIES What is the SCA—an organization consisting of all students applying their ability to establish a form of government. This year the SCA has strived to bring out a closer relationship not only between the stu¬ dents and faculty but among the students themselves. The Pep Week displayed this de¬ sire among the stu¬ dents. Also they feel the need to be able to voice their opinions. Through the efforts of Mrs. Whitehead, the sponsor, the SCA officers and other in¬ terested members were allowed to attend dis¬ trict and state meetings to bring back creative and stimulating ideas to promote student parti¬ cipation and awareness. Dances have been sponsored by the SCA. The SCA informs the students of the govern¬ ment around them through assemblies such as the assembly on the presidental election. Thus, the SCA creates a system of co-operation among a majority. SCA The S.C.A. executive council concentrates on student problems. An S.C.A. meeting progresses with Gwynn Harvey presiding. 70 Senior Representatives: Becky McNabb, Patsy Whitehead, Lou Parrish, Margaret Mitchell and Ann Wood. Junior Representatives: Martha Tyree, Joyce Profitt, Debbie Fox, Pat Payne, and Debbie Bryant. Freshmen Representatives: Patsy Parr, Becky Wickcliffe, Jane Fortune, Buzz Goad, Debbie Campbell, and Beverly Martin. 71 Honor; that is to say, leadership, char¬ acter, service, and scholarship is molded by being together, in the Honor Society. Sponsored by Mrs. Tucker, the Honor Society, a select group of five students, is eternally active. Two continous projects of the Honor Society are to award a $50.00 scholarship to a non¬ member senior who plans to continue his education and the awarding of certificates to students who have made good grades throughout the year. The society has been responsible for decora¬ ting the bulletin board and sent cards to for- mer graduates of N.C.H.S. serving in the armed forces.

Assistant Editor, Sandra Mawyer, helps an overloaded editor. The Governor staff working hard to produce the best edition that N.C.H.S. has ever known, has endeavored to give each student a photo¬ journalist record of year’s events. Despite the energy and time devoted to the an¬ nual, the students and sponsor, Mrs. Richards, enjoy the experience that it gives them. The Gover¬ nor staff had a great time collecting ads and pictures for the annual. They feel that the devotion required for such a tedious job is worth the results that are produced. Copy Editor, Pettis Groton and Circulation Editor, Karen Peverill lend a hand in layout work. YEARBOOK STAFF Layout Editors, Becky McNabb and Donnie Harvey rush to meet that first deadline. Bernice Loving and Debbie Tomlin, Business Editors, spend their day typing. Photographer Dennis Roberts talks over plans with Sports Editor, Tommy Habel. 74 Is this any way for the traveling team to collect ads? Mr. Wright demonstrates to the Future Teachers the right way to conduct a class. FUTURE TEACHERS OF AMERICA The members of the Future Teachers of America are endeav¬ oring to learn the art of teaching. With eyes to the future and pencil in hand, they strive to find a way in which knowledge possessed may flow freely to those who desire to learn. The club, reor¬ ganized by Mr. Wright, hopes to build students’ interest in the teaching profession and give them an idea of what responsibilities and per¬ sonal pleasures may be gained. 75 FORENSICS The Forensics club composes knowledge and rhetoric to enlighten in¬ terested students in the field of public speaking, prose reading, poetry, and spelling. These members presented a program at Thanksgiving, participated in the district competition, and plan to attend a work¬ shop this summer. Under the direction of Mr. Her¬ bert Cummings, the For¬ ensics group has greatly advanced despite its young age. Forensics members present a reading to a student assembly.

The foundation upon which the organization is built, includes leadership and character development, sportsmanship, cooperation, service, thrift, scholarship, improved agriculture, orga¬ nized recreation, citizenship and patriotism. The F.F.A. exists today because of the desire and cooperation of boys, 14 to 21 years of age, preparing for a career in agriculture. FUTURE FARMERS OF AMERICA Ed looks dumb founded at the process of constructing a motor. 78 Whew! It’s hot under there. Getting a motor started is part of school, too. The Future Nurses prepare for a field trip to get first-handed knowledge. Under the direction of Mrs. Scholes, many girls who are interested in becoming a nurse can learn about the basic fundamentals and hard work that goes into nursing. These girls know that they are re¬ quired to work tire¬ lessly in sickness and in health for endless pain and continuing life. FUTURE NURSES OF AMERICA 79 LIBRARY CLUB The members of this club work diligently towards the services the library provides for the students. Their jobs include typing, circu¬ lating books, filing, checking periodicals, shelving and shelf read¬ ing, labeling, pasting and stamping books, li¬ brary housekeeping and the bulletin board up¬ keep. Mrs. Sullivan, the librarian has received assistance from these people to lighten her load to equip the facili¬ ties offered the stu¬ dents of N.C.H.S. Library Club members pause to take a breath during a busy day. The Camera Club, under the leadership of Mr. White is an organi¬ zation designed to pro¬ mote both interest in the field of photog¬ raphy and to help the amateur improve his photographic technique. With its membership of seven, emphasis is placed not only on how simple photographic processes take place, but why. CAMERA CLUB 80 MONOGRAM CLUB The Monogram Club consists of ath¬ letes who have re¬ ceived the letter “N” in sports. It’s purpose is to broaden young men’s minds both physically and men¬ tally and to provide an example for others to follow. Coach Sher¬ man League heads the organization. An explosion of spirit to keep our players going strong. The spirit minded students at NCHS work together to form an all out support movement towards the Athletic Club. Sportsmanship is the main purpose in mind for the Pep Club. The participants aid in cheering their teams to victory with the right attitudes and actions. Also they have provided the halls with posters be¬ fore each game. This is the brawn of N.C.H.S. PEP CLUB 81 Work for this year’s perfor¬ mances began in the summer with individual study; band camp at Ferrum Junior College, and the full band coming to¬ gether in August to prepare for the first football game. In addition the band marched in the Shrine Benefit Parade and performed at half-time in Lynchburg, traveled to V.P.I for a half-time performance and performed for a Christmas parade in Amherst. Veterans Day found the band playing for the ceremonies and a few days later they presented their first concert of the year in the auditorium of Nelson County High School. Director Vernon T. Lewis and his grade six band feel they have had a very rewarding and busy year. The viewing public of the Nelson County High School governor band was near 100,000 people. N.C.H.S. inarching band in action! The Nelson County High School Band participates in Band Day at V.P.I. BAND 82 The concert band provided excellent music throughout the year. Band Officers: Sue McClain, Vice-President; Pat Wilson, Secretary; Joyce Horsley, Librarian; David Lewis, President; Dick Whitehead, Publicity Manager (absent); Tommy Wilkinson, Business Manager; Jackie Giles, Manager. Majorettes: Joyce Horsley, Audrey Zirkle, Margaret Mitchell, Pat Wilson (head majorette), Patsy Whitehead, Starlet Stevens, and Sara Jordan. Oh, those long hours of practice after school. 84 David Lewis poses with his tuba and numerous band awards. And one, two, three. Two hours of extra practice for the woodwind section. 85 DEBATE CLUB The Debate Club, which meets bi-weekly, has as its goals: first, to learn the necessary techniques to be an effective debater, and secondly, to research as thoroughly as possible the national high school debate topic for this year in order to prepare for competition with other schools in the spring. Some members also participated in a round table discussion held in December at the University of Virginia in connection with the national topic. Debate Club members Donnie Floyd, Emma Napier, Harry Powell, Mrs. Lyons, Becky Thompson, Mike Kidd, and Peggy Lewis. Perfection was the goal of the 1968-69 Chorus; perfection that could come only after hours of diligent classroom study and countless days of after school rehearsal. Realizing that learning to sing was more impor¬ tant than getting a credit for the year, the students buckled down, learning musical terms and blend¬ ing voices. Under the direction of Mrs. Delores Truesdale, the 93-voice chorus gave a Christmas and Spring Con¬ cert, and performed for student assemblies. The 38—voice concert choir participated in the Spring Festival and sang with the chorus during perform¬ ances. Through hard work and willing students, N.C.H.S. had one of the best choral groups ever. Now students, calm down and sing. CHORAL 86 The Concert Choir practices to prepare for the Christmas Concert.

After a long absence, an organization devoted to dra¬ matic expression has re¬ appeared at N.C.H.S., under the supervision of Mr. Settle and Mrs. Carter. Since acting, directing, stage work and the other skills needed for a suc¬ cessful play are also much needed abilities in education and in communication in life, the new club this year has been very popular. The first pro¬ duction, the hilarious TV comedy, The Beverly Hill ¬ billies, provided a great oppor¬ tunity for both those new to the world of theatre and to those with some experience to apply their talents to a new field. The play involved a large number of NCHS students, and was a tremendous success, in performance and in audience response. As the spring began, plans were already being laid for a spring production, per¬ haps of a more serious nature; in any case, we hope it will be just as big a success, and wish the Drama Club luck in their great new undertaking. Uncle Jed and Granny (Billy Mays and Tamara Goolsby) starred in the production of The Beverly Hillbillies. DRAMATICS CLUB 88 Keith and Debbie getting into the mood.

As newcomers to N.C.H.S. take on the honor of being in high school they choose a leader to direct them and help them to begin their search for knowledge. This leader, David Barber, has proven to be able and active in aiding the class of ’72. Under Iris supervision, the freshmen class has made a good start, and the promise to carry through.

The class of ‘71 started off with a bang by selling Nelson County High School sweatshirts. The money made from this will be saved for the prom they will give as Juniors. In the second chapter of the four chapter volume of High School, this sophomore class is writing a stimulating story. They are an active and interesting group and hold great promise for their next two years.

Energeticly, the class sold sub¬ scriptions for the Nelson County Times, held bake sales and sponsored dances. The money obtained from these fund raising drives was saved with one purpose in mind, the junior-senior prom. All the work was well worth it for it was truly one of the loveliest proms yet.

SENIORS CAPTURE SPIRIT AWARD Under the able leadership of class president Adrienne Wilson, the ’69 Seniors and spirit have been synony¬ mous. This has been proven by the win¬ ning of the first spirit award by the Seniors to be presented at Nelson County High School, and further en- chanced by the winning of the powder- puff by the Senior girls with a score of 13-0. It was obvious last year with the pre¬ sentation of a highly successful Junior- Senior prom, that the Senior class of this year was going to show plenty of drive. Further talent was exhibited in our Senior Variety Show rounding out a hard-working year for the class of ’69.
