CLASS HISTORY One bright sunny morning forty red eyed boys and girls were gathered in the First Grade room of New Kent High School. Miss Phipps welcomed this group. As we lookbackon it. . . now, it was . . . . really a soft year, since we we rebellowed to rest our heads on the desks during the day. We all survived our first year and went back as second grader Here Miss Jarvis was our teacher . She well prepared us for the third grade and happily sent us to Mrs. Perry. In the fourth grade we gained Billy Chapman and here we learn ed that “we must not talk in class” from Mrs. Christian. Upon entering the fifth grade, we discovered the secrets of arithmetic fractions. With Mrs, Waldrop, we took a successful trip of Williamsburg and during this year Ralph Randolph was add¬ ed to our enrollment. The sixth year brought Fred Burnette and more homework was given to us by Mrs. Brightwell. Mrs. Potts taught us as grown-up seventh graders. Here was added lipstick and powder and well combed hair. Now we were rulers of the grade school. In the eight grade we gained Wilford Throckmorton. The grade was like a story with a surprise ending. The surprise was that we were all promoted to high school. Mrs. Perry was our teacher and our entire class will always remember how she taught. In September 1949, twenty-four freshmen discovered that we had at last reached high school. Trying as best we could to adapt ourselves to these entirely new surroundings, we proved quite a problem in Mr. Waldrop’s homeroom. To make this year more interesting, we had several picnics and parties. From the experiences of the Freshman year we overcame our timidity and learned that in high school every one cared only about himself and tried in every was to aggravate the teachers. In this sophomore year, again Mr. Waldrop had the responsibilities of being our homeroom teacher. In connection with the Batin and World History, which the students were taking, the whole soph¬ omore class went to see “Quo Vadis” and toured the Valentine Museum in Richmond. We also attended a session of the Gen¬ eral Assembly. With half of our high school days behind, Helen Parsley be¬ came a member of our class. This Junior year was filled with much excitement. Mrs. Roberts, our homeroom teacher, spon¬ sored our Junior Play “Sound Your Horn.” We attempted our first formal Jr. and Sr. Prom and banquet, which was quite suc¬ cessful. Also, the Jr. and Sr. English classes went to see the broadway musical “South Pacific.” After receiving our school rings, we realized that finally we were ready to become digni¬ fied Seniors. Now as Seniors, we look back upon our happy experiences of the past and realize with regret that our school days are a rapid¬ ly coming to an end. This has been a busy year in our attempt to pack our trip, play, yearbook, and graduation and a little studying into nine short months, but with all the work and worry, we will always remember our dear ole days at N.

PROPHECY — — Looking into my crystal ball I see the year 1964 and many things have happened during these ten years. On June 9, 1954 at 8: 00 a group of happy-go-lucky seniors shed a few farewell tears as they received their diplomas. Gazing further into my crystal ball now each person is coming into view. James Kent Anderson is now a military general and special advisor to the President. Fred Burnett joined the Air Force after graduation and now has his own trans-Atlantic air line. Gordon Taylor went to V.P.I to study engineering and he must have done pretty well because he has recently constructed a bridge across the English Channel. Bessie Lee Parsley went to business school and is now traveling round the world as private secretary. Henry Waxmunski went to the University of Honolulu and is now Vice President to the Assistant Vice President at the Chesapeake Corporation. Kathleen Fisher went to Business School during the day and at night she studied music. She is now using both--her family lives on a strict budget and she sings lullabies to her twins. Ralph Randolph went to V.P.I and studied agriculture. He has recently taken Mr. V. B. Perry ' s place as County Farm Agent. He seems to be doing an excellent job along with the other county officers--Steve Bowmer is sheriff and Allen Ellyson is game warden. He spares no one and has caught his old classmate, Ivan, five times without a hunting license. Ivan says being an artist is a wonderful thing, but there isn ' t much money in it. Mitzie and Betty Jane went to Madison and studied chemistry. Wilford is farming here in the county. I see Mrs. Peace still drives the bus and has an awful time controlling her grandchildren. Mr. Parsley says he has the same trouble with Helen ' s children. You know she finally married George and they have a successful hardware business in Quinton. Janice studied Home Economics at Radford and is now Head Dietician at Medical College. Everyone enjoys reading the editorials of the Providence Forge Bugle written by its editor, Billy Chapman. Betty Anne was selected Academy Award winner for the New Kent Theatrical Guild for her performance in Bolts and Nuts. A cloud is coming into my crystal ball, the future and past are fading away. -gl nWr’TM pr ; v; ap a ■ n |. i ff IS , i i i ■ tp ail j V 1 v|J Ci Vi uniord Walter Ph ilbates Vice President We are now entering the final step of our high school life. As we reminisce the many enjoy¬ able moments which we spent as Juniors, we simultaneously look ahead to our final year. This past year has been one of our most difficult; however, all facts considered, it has been our happiest. Doris Waxmunski Reporter In past years, our class has had the largest class repre¬ sentation in sports, and has been identified with other in¬ terscholastic activities, espec¬ ially those of a literary nature. We are now looking forward opti¬ mistically to our closing year at New Kent High School. . . ■ 1 ; J William Boroughs Drexel Crump Inez Crump Kitty Davis Evelyn Dillard James Dinwiddie Jane Graves Bryant Kent Miron Mihalcoe Shirley Mihalcoe Robert Mills Sherman McLaughlin Dorothy Seward Eddie Smiley Calvin Smith Barbara Taylor Elizabeth Watkins Doris Waxmunski PROVIDENCE FORGE.
