Miss Anne Leathers THE Post-Graduate class is composed of students who find that extra units of work will be necessary for entrance to college or school for specialized training. Because of the need for intensified study, all extra-curricular activities except musical organiza- tions are closed to these students. Some, however, have acquired valuable experience in office management by assisting Mr. Foster in Building 1. There has been a higher grade of scholarship in the results of this year's workg the class, on the fourth marking period, had the highest percentage of honor students of all classes in the school. Here is proof that 1939-1940 has been a success for the post-graduate under the guidance of Miss Anne Leathers. 83 U JUNIOR OFFICERS STETSON MICK President SEPTEMBER. NOVEMBER. School Opens.
