During this year at NCHS, faculty and students alike have worked to attain higher degree of amity in an effort to achieve more perfect form of harmony. IS! f. " 19 Administration Mr. Henry D. Conner Superintendent Nelson County High School has the unique characteristic of being located in a rural en¬ vironment where the administrative staff have interests in the county itself as well as in the school. Such a common ground of concern enables each staff member to share a professional as well as a social relationship. This atmosphere nourishes a warmth and mutual concern which perme¬ ates from the school board, to school administration, to the faculty, to the classroom. While Nelson County High School is proud of the credentials of the pro¬ fessional educators and administrative staff, it has great deference for their personal characters.

The primary objective of the Guid¬ ance Department is to enable the student to grasp an understanding of himself and his place in the world. The fulfillment of this basic need enables the student to confidently pursue his education, his occupation, and finally, to achieve harmony within the self. Mr. DeForest Ingersoll Duke University B.A. University of Virginia M. Ed. 23 Mrs. Shirley Wright Longwood College B.S. The Business Department endeavors to train the student vocationally and practically, in addition to supplementing their general education. The courses offered may be combined to give students the practice needed to operate successfully in a general business office. Taken separately, they help increase a student’s knowl¬ edge of the business world. Mrs. Catherine Lincoln Madison College B.S. Longwood College M.S.

It gives a personal view of people that can be obtained in no other way. The students of NCHS are encouraged to study foreign languages with this as their goal, thus enriching their lives with a unique form of cultural contact. Mr. Don Drayer Lynchburg College B.A. 25 Miss Nina Garrett Madison College B.S. English Mrs. Janet Davis Madison College B.A. The beginning of the 1971-72 school session introduced major changes in the English department. Students chose the level of English they wished to take. Academic students chose level II and the general studies students, level I. As the year progressed, goals for the English teachers were concentrated on this initial change. Teachers continuously worked on cur¬ riculum guides for the various grades and levels in an effort to prepare the student to think for himself and to communicate with others through the written and spoken word. Miss Pattie Driskill Emory and Henry College B.A. 26 Mr. George Buzzard Virginia Military Institute B.A. 27 Fine Arts Musical and artistic forms of education can not be measured in terms of practicality alone. Not only do they have educational values, they also play a great part in personal enjoyment. Mankind has a need for beauty to ease tensions, to provide recreational experi¬ ences, and to stimulate the imagination. The Fine Arts Department realizes this and supplies an opportunity for a unique kind of relaxation while striving to maintain harmony in all areas of the fine arts.

The department has three main objectives: first, to aid the student in develop¬ ing all aspects of his personality, both as an individual and in society; second, to provide a pre-vocational program that will facilitate the student’s transition to adult living; and third, to aid the student in obtaining after-high school occupational opportunities. Library Enrichment of life is the goal of education. The library provides an area where classroom education may be additionally supported. It’s main objective is to make academic and recreational material avail¬ able to students and faculty and to encour¬ age their use. Mr. Robert Gosney University of Richmond B.A. 29 Science The ultimate goal of science education is to develop the critical thinker, one who thinks clearly, precisely, and efficiently. Individuals should be concerned with the unknown in space as well as the problems existing in our world today. The Science Department establishes an awareness of these problems of our environment and helps the student understand man’s place in earth ' s nature. Mr. Gary Bugg Lynchburg College B.S., M. Ed.

The Mathematics Department at N.C.H.S. believes in a program that will enable students to make valid contr ibutions to the social and technical progress of modern society. It acquaints the student with the basic skills and understanding of mathematical structures. The main objective of the department is to help develop effective reasoning which enables one to apply mathematics to everyday living.

Physical Education was designed to help the stu dent develop an understanding of the body as a complex mechanism which would operate more efficiently through phys¬ ical fitness. This year, the Physical Ed¬ ucation Department tried to develop sportsmanship attitudes and the op¬ portunity for participation in activities which would promote individual sat¬ isfaction as well as social harmony.

On September 21, 1918, in Charlestown, West Virginia, John Sherman League began his lifetime of victory. During his high school years and throughout his college career at the University of West Virginia and Shepard College he showed the potential of an outstanding athlete. Soon after his graduation, Sherman League was married to Helen L. Reininger. They were blessed with three children, Charles, William, and Diane. Diane died in 1961 as the result of an automobile accident. After college, Coach League began his career by coaching at Shenandoah High School where his most prominent victory was his basketball team’s State Championship. In 1955, he moved his home to Nelson County and took up teaching in the then new high school where he remained for seventeen years. In twenty-four years of coaching, he coached all four of the major sports. During this span, he led his football teams to five championships, basketball teams to one District, one Regional, and one State Championship, baseball teams to one District Championship and his John Sherman League track teams to sixteen District and three State Championships. In his last year of coaching, Coach League led the Junior Varsity basketball team to their first District Championship. He was fortunate in that he secured at least one championship in each sport he coached. He was especially noted in 1970 when Nelson’s team won the State Championship with the highest total of points ever in a State Track Meet. Coach League’s leadership abilities were recognized beyond the community. Twice he was named Coach of the Year for District IV. He was also selected as Coach of the Year for Central Virginia, an award given by The Daily Progress. In 1966 he served as vice-president and the following year as president of the Virginia High School Coaches Association. In 1967-68 he served on the Board of Directors for the National High School Coaches Association. In 1969, Coach League was honored with the Distinguished Service Award by the Virginia High School League. In 1970, the Lynchburg Area Track and Field Club awarded him with a Distinguished Service Award. In 1971, the Sherman League Award, presented annually at the Seminole District Track Meet, was founded by the Seminole District. On January 1, 1972, after two years of prolonged illness due to cancer, Coach League passed from our midst but left behind him a trail of memories that will last forever. 37 formal education. For many, it was the beginning of active preparation for college or more special¬ ized training. But for all, the year was one of traditional high school excitement, and pensive moments, remembering the past five years at NCHS.

At his young age he possessed a sensitive awareness of life and people. He enjoyed travel because it offered him new friendships and the opportu¬ nity to acquaint himself with new places and novel approaches to life. But perhaps his most admirable accomplishment was his simple yet lucid assessment of life: “My hope is that I . . . live a good life because you have . . . but one time to live and that is all.” 89 Kay Baldwin, Reporter After a few rough weeks of mixed-up classes and confusion, the Freshman class settled down to a normal routine of high school life. They strive to work together in order to become acquainted with each other and adjusted to the progressive and eventful years ahead.

The tune at times is constantly changing, at times discordant, yet striving for perfect harmony. Debate Club The premise of the Debate Club is that there are two sides to every issue. Through the use of facts, as opposed to opinion, the student learns to express himself in an organized manner. Membership is open to all students. Competition is on the District and State levels.

Dracula was the highlight of the 1971-72 Drama Club. The Drama Club at NCHS is an organi¬ zation working as a group for a common goal. One of the main purposes of the club is to acquaint students with the complexities of performing and staging a three-act play. Also, by having club workshops on movement and speech, hopefully, the individual members will improve their personal speaking abilities. This year, for the first time in several years, the Drama Club put on a three-act play entitled Dracula. 105 The efforts of the Ecology Club were concentrated on three main projects for the year. The club worked together to accomplish ways of cleaning up various areas in Nelson County. In addition, the club observed “Earth Week” and participated in the glass recycling project sponsored by the S.C.A. We study to save our environment. Ecology Club Kneeling L to R: L. Bragg, Y.

Some of the activities include French cuisine, music, pen pals, and fund-raising projects to support the purchase of French magazines. 107 Literary Magazine The Literary Magazine was created to encourage the creative abilities of the students at the school by publishing their efforts in original literature. Poetry, short stories, one-act plays, and essays constitute the genres to be considered. Original musical compositions and artwork are also included in the publication. All entries are screened anonymously by a staff of seven. The works are judged on basis of originality, unity and literary merit. A moment of rest before disasters. Row 1, Seated: B. Allen, D.

At first, work slowly progressed but then the staff realized that it wasn’t all fun and games as deadlines suddenly popped up from nowhere. After the serious work began, staff members planned the layout, prepared write-ups about classes and clubs and took pictures to present the theme. The staff members learned much by this experi¬ ence — responsibility, patience, and co¬ operation.
