Now, we, the Senior Class, just leave. 12 Catherine Raymond Kendall Janet Arlene Bruce Mary Ann Mary Anna Shirley Dear N. K. H. S. Underclassmen, Just a note to tell you about our 12 years at N. K. H. S. It was not all play, but quite a bit of work. One bright, sunny morning in September 1944, six red-eyed boys and girls of the present Senior Class entered the halls of New Kent. The six members were: Roger Gregory, Catherine Walker, John Graves, Charles Post, Jane Stewart, and Floyd Phil- bates. As we look back on it now, it was a really soft year, since we were allowed three recess periods a day. Mary Ann Kurdziel joined us in the second grade and we took up more serious studying under our teacher, Mrs. Fisher. The third grade brought us Kendall Lipscomb. During the fourth grade with Mrs. Peace as our teacher, we accepted into the class Raymond Ryan, Mary Anna Marvin, Tyrus Firesheets, Bruce Gregory, Janet Davis, and Billy Perry. After arriving in the fifth grade we found that we had grown so in numbers that we had to be divided into two classes. Mrs. Upp and Mrs. Waldrop were our teachers and they introduced us to the pleasure of taking examinations. Benjamin Ward and Shirley Cobb were added to our class. Mrs, Mears undertook the task of keeping us quiet in the sixth grade and we added the last member of our graduating class, Arlene Keeton. We took our annual class trip in the Seventh grade to Richmond to see the leg¬ islature in action. In the eighth grade we encountered the mysteries of high school life under the guidance of Mrs. Newton. In our Freshman year, under Mrs. Richmond’s leadership, we felt as if we had at last earned the name " Teenagers. " We learned that there were other things in life besides books, and we took our turn at going to football games, dances, and anywhere else we could go to keep from studying. When we advanced to Sophomores, Mr. Wells had the honor of being our home¬ room teacher. We started our fund raising campaign by sponsoring a Christmas Dance. Our Junior year was one of our best years. That fall we received our class rings and got our first glimpse at being Seniors. Our Junior and Senior Prom went off with a bang! Our theme " Moonlight and Roses " was carried out with an outdoor garden scene. Under the direction of Mrs. Richmond, who was our homeroom teacher, we success¬ fully gave our Junior Play, " The Big Blow-Up. " As you can see this hasn’t been a bit dull, now has it? So the best of luck to the underclassmen. We hope you have as much fun, and as much co-operation from the students and faculty as we have had. Sincerely yours. The Senior Class 14 MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED: Catherine Walker, Kendall Lipscomb WITTIEST: Mary Ann Kurdziel Bruce Gregory BEST DRESSED: Mary Anna Marvin, Tyrus Firesheets 0bcm 0 ' 56 ' %otcU ‘Remim NEW KENT, Nov., 1970 - The Senior Class of 1956 held its annual class reunion in the new recreation center at New Kent High School. For the first time since graduation, the group was complete. Music was furnished by Bill Hailey and his " Comets, " featuring Miss Shirley Cobb on the clarinet. Miss Cobb joined the Comets after studying at the Boston Conservatory. The former Arlene Keeton who is now the Hostess of the Conrad Hilton Hotel of Cario, supervised the serving of the banquet. The former President of the class, Mary Anna Marvin, gave the welcoming speech. After graduation, she took a short business course, became engaged, and is now raising a football team. John Graves, Olympic Track star, recently returned from the Olympic games in which he topped his old record of 3 1 2 minutes for the mile, gave a talk on " Feet and How to Care For Them. Miss Jane Steward entertained the group by singing " Mabelline. Jane is now emcee of the Old Dominion Barn Dance. Before the Orchestra could assemble for the dance, the nominees for president. Democrat Kendall Lipscomb, and Republican Billy Perry got in an argument over the big political issue, " The Rise and Fall of the Price of Eggs in China. " Tyrus Firesheets has turned out to be another Rudolph Valentino. All Hollywood is praising his academy award winning role in " Moonshine and Honeysuckle. " Ben Ward arrived carrying his wife. He is another Charles Atlas--the world Champion Weight lifter. Buddy Post is now the head plumber in the White House. He arrived early in order to pre¬ pare the swimming pool so that Miss Janet Davis, another Esther Williams, could give an exhibi¬ tion in swimming. One of the classmates unexpectedly present was the former Catherine Walker, who has been traveling around the world with her sixth husband, a gay Senor from Mexico. Raymond Ryan, Pulitzer Prize Winner was present. He won the award with his biography of Bruce Gregory, who is now a big game hunter in Africa. Mary Ann Kurdziel and Roger Gregory, both made a late entrance. Roger after furthering his education at William and Mary and playing around in local politics, was appointed the Sec¬ retary of the Argiculture. Mary Ann, who was secretary to the president of the James McGraw Co. , for the past few years, just returned from her world tour with her husband Alton Adams. Floyd Philbates who is now a very well known wheat farmer in the midwest, farming one mil¬ lion acres, drove off on one of his tractors. 17 QUIET: Jane Stewart, Charles " Buddy " Post BEST ALL AROUND: Mary Ann Kurdziel, Tyrus Firesheets V 6 INTELLECTUAL: Catherine Walker, Kendall Lipscomb LARKS: Raymond Ryan Jane Stewart 18 BASHFUL: Floyd Philbates Arlene Keeton underclassmen Johnson Haley Marie Firesheets John Peace Frances Hawkins Jimmy Perry Steve Renalds Tctvumi.
