Semor Class Hlstory
In the fall of 1939 thirty first graders and their teacher, Miss Geneva
Damm, now Mrs Brennamen, started the school year here at Newell Six of
those pupils will graduate together this year They are Barbara Bennett,
Bob Bonestell Betty Anne Donnelly Nettie Orwick, Dorothy Richards and
Miss Martha Snook, our second grade teacher, had twenty eight of us to
watch over and we kept her pretty busy
The third grade picked up two more students who will graduate w1th us
this year They are Elmer Eichler, and June Ruby Miss Katherine Davis
instructed us that year and did what she could to improve our little minds
The next two years, the fourth and fifth grades, were uneventful as far
as our collection of pupils went however, an even thirty of us managed to
keep our teachers hopping
The sixth year of school was a long awaited period We were at last the
big shots in the white building F1Ve new members Joined our group as we
welcomed Lola Neisess, Don Eickelman, Viola Richter, Betty Ruff, and Gene
Scott At the end of the term we gave a graduation play under the direction
of our patient instructor, Miss Esmay
The beginning of the seventh grade was a puzzle and muddle of bewilderment
as far as we were concerned Bells ringing, and everyone rushing to be on time
was quite new to s We soon caught on an now we get along Just fine Gertrude
Draine came in from the country school and Charles Lund somehow snuck past
the sixth grade and followed us, making a class of thirty two
The eighth grade went along as well as could be expected Jack Holt moved
to Lead and Elmer Eichler, who had left us again in the third grade, came back
three eighth graders quite a handful for our teacher
The next year we entered high school, budding over with excitement at the
thought of getting to sit in the study hall with our very own desks As is the
custom, all Freshmen from the surrounding country schools came to NHS, and
so Mary Cook Nancy Hirai J1m Fredlund, Jim Orw1ck, Mattha Schultz, and
Ardeth Hollister entered our group Hugh Caton and Lorraine Mowrey entered
from different towns making nine new members
Thirty seven began the tenth grade together, and who should come back to
Newell but Jack Holt Hugh Caton was our class President and we all took
part in more outside activities
The Junior Class had thirty three members with Jack Holt as President,
and Mr Mettler as sponsor Jeanie Bonner and Donaly Meyer were new members
Jeanie came from Denver, Colorado Our play HSoc1a1ly Ambitions' was a
success It was a comical production, at least to us, directed by Miss
Notareschi Welcome to the Orientn was the theme of our Junior Senior
Banquet That year was a first in two activities for NHS We participated 1
Homecoming for the first time and also had a high school annual for the first
time Nettie Orwick was our Junior Queen and candidate for Homecoming Queen
We started out our last year of school by electing Lorraine Mowrey as
President of the Senior class Vea Brown came from Nederland, Colorado and
Viola Richter came back from Oregon to make a class of twenty eight members
Betty Ruff was elected Senior Queen and received the honor of becoming
