THE GOVERNOR THE SPIRAL STAIR¬ CASE Editors: Don Harvey Sandra Snell Sponsor: Mrs. Eleanor Dawson Administration Page 98 TABLE OF CONTENTS Activities Page 118 2 DEDICATION He is a man of many faces. As a prism has many sides, so he too has many commendable qualities. He is enveloped in the entire spectrum of educa¬ tion—as a teacher, an advisor, a coach, and a friend! “Prepared in mind and body’’ —While others have the re¬ sponsibility of preparing the students in mind, he chooses to prepare them both physically and mentally. He is always willing to aid any student in finding the solution to a problem. His advice is always accepted with the deepest respect. Nelson County High is noted for it’s outstanding athletic accomplishments-whether it be in football, basketball, baseball, or track. It is to him that we owe this recognition of success. Surely, he is a friend to all! His smiling face serves as an inspiration to all students at Nelson County High. 3 4 Standing at the bottom Looking up . . . The Spiral Staircase Towering above. Students with faltering steps Continue ' the climb To the top. But along the way There are many stops. Some for fun . . . but some for work. There are moments of joy But also of sorrow. Life goes on And stops for none. Individual students Each one different Continue the climb To the top of the steps And there awaits them The most decisive step. Some venture no further While others are daring An occupation for some College for others A variety of careers Await the Senior! Along t he way We meet accomplishments Some seem trivial And others rewarding. 5 Sports are numerous Each to its’ season Spirits are high The outcome uncertain. Led by the cheerleaders Onward to victory Students upholding TheGREEN and the GOLD. 6 I LOOK UP ... AND CLIMB THE STAIRS TO SUCCESS — LIFE STUDENT LIFE 9 Mrs. Bragg watches as her students work studiously! They ' re ready to go! Don’t the girls seem eager to exercise? 10 Time for a breather between lunches. Love - the long and the short of it! mmaffiSm . 11 Someone is always hoping for a break in the line! Time for a nutritious meal (and a chance to gossip). Lunch also provides time to discuss important business for some. 12 Checking the income from the yearbook sales. The annual room is also used as a clinic, but Donnie does not look too sick! The FFA boys help add to the decoration in the halls! 13 REVIEW OF LAST SPRING Receiving the Class Ring is a highlight of the Junior year! After days of preparation, the “big night” finally arrives. The Juniors complete the final stages of preparations for the prom. 14 4 WE BEGIN ’70 - ’71 Assemblies can be a real experience! Seniors climbing the steps to enter their final year at NCHS!

Look boys, you’ve got to get this straight! Decorating the Christmas tree for the SCA adds excitement to the season. NCHS students “get down” on the soul sound. 24 The joys of that first lab. Bonnie Seaman has been a great help in the Guidance department this year! What would we have done without her? Do you think it bites?!? 25 sc j I ' V ' i » L I .

The Freshmen are well aware of this fact. The first year of high school is one of adjustment and aquaintance with the general procedures of the school. The first day is usually one of con¬ fusion and utter chaos. Many Freshmen find themselves lost in the corridors, as they are swept along by the other students. However, after a few days, the general pattern for student life is set. The Freshmen year is not the most ex¬ citing, but it is a vital step along the road to higher edu¬ cation.

The Juniors discuss a new class ring design. Students have fully acquainted themselves with their environment by the time they reach their Junior year. They are now one step below that ultimate goal, being a 72 Senior. They finally realize that they are almost there when they re¬ ceive their class rings. Junior prom plans are wisely made by these eager students who are now proving their role in a vital school activity. They raised money for the prom by having a bottle drive, in which they netted $290.00. Jean Bragg won the subscription contest for Nelson County Times. Good luck on your journey to the top, Juniors!! r 58 Eleanor Allen Deborah Ashley Melvin Barber Charles Bowling Jean Bragg 59 Sir-It ii’ a Sal lie Brown Patricia Bryant Karen Bryant J.W.

This is the most decisive step of the entire educational expe¬ rience. Some students choose college as the next step. Others choose a desired career or pro¬ fession. Whatever the choice, it must be their own! While graduation is a time of excitement, it is also a time of sadness. Graduation means sepa¬ ration from student life, teachers, and other students at N.C.H.S. The high school years have held many memorable experiences and treasured moments. These experiences are to be cherished in years to come. And so, the mighty Seniors of 71 finish up a very memorable year!!

Band 97 ADMINISTRATION I 99 The administration of Nelson County High School is seriously concerned with the education of each student. It is their aim to familiar¬ ize the student with the opportunities an education may bring. As well as presenting the rig¬ orous academic side of an educa¬ tion, many extra¬ curricular activities are also provided for the benefit of the students. Mr. William J. Bloomer, Principal, and Mr. Cleveland Price, Jr., Assistant Principal, are doing a remark¬ able job in carrying out these duties. To these men we say a special “Thank you”. ADMINISTRATION Mr. William J. Bloomer Virginia Polytechnic Institute, B.S., University of Virginia, M.Ed. Mrs. Evans (standing) an d Mrs. Quick (seated) Mr. Cleveland Price, Jr. North Carolina State University, B.S. 100 GUIDANCE The guidance department is one of the most important departments to a student. Through the help of Mrs. Catherine H. Whitehead, Mrs. Lillian R. Coleman, and Mr. DeForest Ingersoll, a student may find solutions to problems concerning school, as well as to those of a personal nature. The guidance personnel are also responsible for the scheduling of the many tests which are required throughout the year. It is in this department that a personal record is kept of each students’ achieve¬ ments to be used in the choice of a college or of a career. Also included in the guidance department this year is Mrs. Helen League, who is doing some of the secretarial work, in order to give the counselors more time to spend with the students.

The science department hopes to instill in each student a desire for scientific inquiry so that he might de¬ velop both a knowl¬ edge and an appre¬ ciation for the ever¬ growing “world of science”.

BUSINESS Mrs. Clara Shelton Bennett College, B.A. 112 Mrs. Catherine Lincoln Madison College, B.S. DRIVER EDUCATION The Business Department has a threefold objective; namely, vocational training, personal-use training, and a supple¬ ment to general educa¬ tion. A total of twenty classes a day are taught by the four teachers in this department. Course offer¬ ings include: General Business, Non-Vocational and Vocational Recordkeeping, book¬ keeping, Typewriting I, and II, Secretarial and Clerical Office Practice. The vocational students are encouraged to follow either the complete secre¬ tarial or clerical tracks. After having successfully completed all the subjects in one of these tracks, the student should be able to perform a majority of the duties required in a gen¬ eral business office. Also included in the course offerings are sev¬ eral subjects which may be selected by students to meet personal needs or to help increase one’s gen¬ eral knowledge of the business world. Mr. Curtis Truesdale Allen University, B.S. 113 VOCATION- AGRICULTURE and HOME ECONOMICS The Vocational Department is designed to extend a student’s knowl¬ edge in such fields as ag¬ riculture, mechanics (for the boys), and home eco¬ nomics (for girls). Mr. Hankins, Mr. Puckett, Mrs. Parr, and Mrs. Giles do a fine job of leading their students into a world of vocational opportunities. Mr. Warren E. Hankins A. and T.

Rigorous exercise, inter-squad competition, and other such activities train the students of NCHS in co-operativeness and sportsmanship. Class room education on health and hygiene and problems of youth today form an awareness of and foresight of the future. The efforts of Mr. Sherman League, athletic director, and his colleagues, Mr. Eddie Witt, Miss Connie Nimmo, and Mrs. Anna Leigh Greene, are evident in the honors brought home by the well-trained sportsmen (and women) of NCHS.

Though the team did not compile a championship record, they displayed school spirit on the field as well as off.
