Favorites WITTIEST: Gratton Stephens Martha Randolph BEST DRESSED: Billy Richardson Loretta Oates MOST SCHOOL SPIRIT: Betty Parker David Boroughs BEST ALL-ROUND: Martha Randolph Charles Mullen Class of ’5 7 BEST LOOKING: Barbara Ashley Gary Richardson MOST POPULAR: Imajean Bowes Charles Mullen MOST ATHLETIC: Betty Parker David Boroughs MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED: Gary Richardson Loretta Oates Class History I was the first to reach the first grade classroom in September, 1945. Mrs. Hockaday greeted me at the door. Seven of the first grade pupils are my classmates today in the senior class. They are Frances Hawkins, Sandra Morris, Loretta Oates, David Boroughs, Billy Bowery, Gary Meade Richardson and Lin Smith. In the second grade under Mrs. Fisher, two pretty faces joined our ranks - Martha Jane Randolph and Barbara Ashley. In the third grade Miss Ward was our teacher and Marie Firesheets became a member of our group. Mrs. Peace taught us in the fourth grade. On the first day of school, I spied two new faces - Jimmy Perry, who had skipped a grade just to be with us, and Charles Mullen. My first day in the fifth grade was a confusing one. There were so many new pupils - Betty Parker, Steve Renalds, Jackie Anderson, Johnson Haley and Billy Richardson. In the sixth grade Mrs. Mears was our teacher. We went to Richmond on our class trip. Mrs. Peace was our teacher again in the seventh grade. This year, on the last day of school, all of us dressed in white to receive our diplomas and so graduated into high school. At the beginning of the eighth grade, Mrs. Reynolds was our homeroom teacher un¬ til just after half-term. Then the fun began! One teacher after another came to teach us, but we were just too much for all of them except Miss Hansel, who finally got the job. Our class president, Barbara Ashley, represented our class in the May Court. Imajean Bowes joined us in the ninth grade. We were really a part of the high school now and as our debut, on October 29, we gave our first party - a Sock Hop after the football game. Mr. Waldrop was our homeroom teacher and Charles Mullen, our pres¬ ident. Betty Parker represented our class in the May Court. In the tenth grade Mrs. Mears and Mr. Alexander were our homeroom teachers. This year Gratton Stephens and Aubrey White joined us. Betty Parker was president of our class and under her direction we undertook our biggest money-raising project; we sold drinks at May Day. Martha Jane Randolph represented the tenth grade in the fes¬ tivities of that day. The eleventh grade was the most fun, and the most hard work yet. Mrs. Phaler was our class sponsor and Charles Mullen, our president. Harry Lee Batkins had decided to stay back and become a part of the class and we were mighty glad to have him. On March 23, after weeks of practicing and partying we gave our Junior play, " Don’t Be Bashful.” This year on May 4, the Juniors and Seniors of New Kent attended the most beautiful prom ever given. The theme was " Hitch your Wagon to a Star. " Loretta Oates represented our class in the May Court. As seniors, we sponsored the Corn Club banquet, sold refreshments at ball games, and gave a play, " Everybody ' s Getting Married. " All this activity was for raising funds for our New York trip. Barbara Ashley was Queen of New Kent’s first Homecoming. We leave you, fellow classmates, an accurate account of the happenings of the Class of 57, and hope that you may find the happiness and joy throughout your twelve years in school that we have experienced in working together as a team. We leave you now, only our great class, and I, as " The Spirit of the Class of ’57, " hope that these memories may all be pleasant ones. Last Will and Testament We, the Senior Class of 1957, being of our right mind, do bequeath and bequit, leave, give, and get rid of the following: Barbara Ashley leaves her ability to be the dumbest girl in geometry class to Jean Sew¬ ard and her love for sports to Mary D. Christian. Imajean Bowes leaves her ability to have a party every day in shorthand class to Vickie Kurdziel and her ability to wear her pin in the oddest places to Barbara Updike. Billy Bowery leaves his reputation of the most careful bus driver to Julian Lipscomb and his love for chemistry to Leon Edwards. Marie Firesheets leaves her giggling during study hall to Mrs. Dalrymple and her ability to become engaged at the From to Gay Griffith. Jackie Andeison leaves his ability to never, never pick up his feet when he is walking to Jimmy Pearman and his athletic ability to Donald McKay. David Boroughs leaves his nickname to anyone who can stand being teased about it and his ability to always get along with everyone during class meetings to Henry Ward. Johnson Haley leaves his position on the football team to Tommy Wilson and his love for English to Kent McLaughlin. Frances Hawkins leaves her driving ability to Beverly Barfknecht and her love for book¬ keeping to Kay Batkins. Jimmy Perry leaves his limousine to anyone who will steal it and his vocal arrangement of " Ricochet " to Emmett Couch. Steve Renalds leaves his ability to always be tardy for school to anyone who can get away with it and his intelligence to Woodrow Hockaday. Gary Richardson leaves his ability to get along with teachers to Carter Richardson, who needs it, and love for the rhythm and blues to Bobby Paul. Sandra Morris leaves her ability to pass notes in class to a certain friend to Betty Gre¬ gory and her height to Carolyn Smith. Lin Smith leaves his ability to sing going to basketball games to Kenny Bowyer, and love for algebra to Herbert White. Aubrey White leaves his ability to work those " hard " geometry problems to Tommy Marvin and his love for Toano to Donald Dean. Gratton Stephens leaves his ability to crack " corny” jokes and to be always talking to Clyde Goodman, and his love for the sophomore room to William Morgan. Martha Randolph leaves her ability to never agree with anyone and constantly throw sarcastic remarks to Gin Taylor and her love for home ec. or anything connected with " marriage " to Mary Ellen Ellyson. Charles Mullen leaves his conceited ways to Dee Dalrymple and his ability to always cause trouble in the Senior Class to George Gregory. Betty Parker leaves her ability to hurt everybody’s feelings and leave everything in total confusion to Jackie Kent and her love for parties to Karen Harper. Billy Richardson leaves his catalog of jokes to Chris Davis and his love for music (especially " bopping " ) to Johnny Baughan . Loretta Oates leaves her ability to get thrown out of English class to Barbara Upp and her charcoal jumper to Shirley Adams. Harry Batkins leaves his curly hair to Bobby Cheatham and his love for ' 57 Fords to Bobby McCormick. Prophecy June 7, 1967 Dear Jean, Gee, how time has flown since we finished high school. Seems no time at all since Miss Press was telling you to " watch that temper! " You must be enjoying your travels since your husband joined the Harlem Globetrotters. I hear he’s even up for manager of the " Trotters " next year. Is that true? Have you kept in touch with many of our classmates since graduation? I saw Martha Randolph the other day. Married now , she is quite busy with her brood. There were six at the last count, I believe. Martha told me Betty Parker is now a professor at Duke University, teaching school- spirit. Jimmy Perry is chief warden for a boys’ reform school. His motto is " .. .put off to¬ day what you can do tomorrow. " Jean, you remember Aubrey White and Johnson Haley. Well, Aubrey is now count¬ ing the 1, 2’s for Lawrence Welk and Johnson is giving voice lessons. I saw a school paper from our alma mater the other day. It seems that Harry Batkins is now giving driving lessons to school children. Other news was Gary Richardson. Gary, a science teacher at New Kent, was having a chemistry experiment when the right side of the building blew up. They think he mixed the wrong chemicals. Barbara Ashley was recently married. After being a first-grade teacher for five years, I guess she thought it was time for a change. I saw Steve Renalds not long ago. He said he was leaving for France the following week to visit one of our former classmates. He told me Jackie Anderson had a growing business with his original car model, Goodspeed. Jean, I heard that Frances Hawkins is now traveling through the Western States. I understand she will return to Virginia soon with her new husband. Sandra Morris and Lin Smith are both residents of the growing community of New Kent. Sandra is now a prominent housewife in the county and Lin is postmaster. The other day Lin got a parcel too large to handle. It was a pink elephant from his Africa- exploring friend, Gratton Stephens. I hear Patty Boroughs is topping all records for this country in the Olympics. I know you remember Billy Richardson. At present, he is a promising young lawyer, residing in Washington, D. C. He is secretary to the Secretary of Labor, trying to avoid labor himself. Mrs. Richardson, nee Miss Loretta Oates, is his secretary. Billy Bowery and Charles Mullen are doing very well. Billy has a high position in New York at Macy ' s. I understand he is playing Santa Claus. I always knew he liked children. Charles organized a Lonely Hearts Club soon after his completion of high school. Well, Jean, my husband is calling me to prepare his dinner, so I shall close for now. Do write to me.
