Unav are of the many bacles to be encountered,v e ?ted this trip with joyous IS for four years. Our general X of high school v as " just a - :her elementary school.” le first days of our high sch- life v ere spent,for the most in getting acquainted with high school routines. The jr-classmen v ere most willing lelp us andjWithhn a lit tie Le,we began to feel at home )ur new abode.The next days , 3ver,v ere quite different, by 3 time,most of us were acnuain v ith hiqh school life. )on classes began and we rea - d that our carefree , idle } were over, V e also learned 3 failure is easier to achieve 1 is success. Several of the lents were unable to withstand j obstacle and dropped along v ayside,leaving the most am- -ous ones to travel farther. I we settled dov n to study,we :ed forward to the holidays,be- ;e that meant v e v ould have a -od cf rest for the exams thnt .owed. Then came the exams fV we returned to school,from 6hristmas vacation. For once .ng the whole school term, the •ding was quiet and the halls .r because all the students b hind closed d ' ors they were |..:ed. began the sc ' onci semester a le mort; serieasly than we did hi. , hils was ou.r first year -..w.i football.

In the fall of ’[[,8 wc regis¬ tered as sophomores. Our being sophomores v as a matter of ad¬ justment. V e planned a trip to the Cherokee Indian Reservation, In the fall of ’[j.9 we registcrcc as juniors, looking forward to the junior-senior prom, which occupied most of our time during the spring. My how time flew, and here we were beginning the last mile of the way.Those of us who with¬ stood the storm thus far feel proUd to know that v e just about completed our journey. For some of us it means the end; for others the beginning,but v hat - ever our lot,we fear no trail and ' " ill continue to move on , Now, as v e stand on th :; t hue hold,we say farew ell to our teachers, classmates and friends. To our Teachers: ' Jo have proven and v ill prove tlmt your labor you have put forth shall not be in vain. To our qlassmates:The joys we have shared will linger in our m emories to remind us of our stay here. To our priends: Our chain shall not be broken,but streng¬ thened. So v ith our motto in mind: To strive, to seek, to find, but not to yield,we now face the world , and the history of the Class of 1980 goes dov n on record,Yet for us it is only the beginning and not the end.

Their research . corcern success and failure 1 Hendersonville we boarded a .n to New York City Where very ;unately one of the first per - 1 we saw was William Greene Jr. is now manager of the Waldorf ria Hotel. Prom him we learned Marjorie Ann Hodges was tour- Europe as a Concert Artist.We ned too that Edith Waters was ical Education Instructor at ett College in Greensboro ,N.C. P- learning this we decided I to t some of our classmates who d in New Jersey.In Atlantic f we stopped at a fashionable 3 shop which was owned and ated by V illie Mae Cooley.Here Dund data leading to the where 3uts of more of our- classmates earned from Willie Mae, that “•illie Clay was designing for General Motors. She also -oned the ' fact that Thema C. ISon was head nurse at John ■ns Hospital in Baltimore,Md . •so learned that Willie James Lum v as playing professional ■tball v ith the Harlem Globe - ■er- . To our luck there was a tl following night in the of Washing ' -or f aturing The crotters pn. jhe Capital .So we nat ' - lly decided to I ' 3 -n the hai ' e” we were . converse c illie James id; ' , we lear-ned hat Emna Jane i j 1 was matliaiiietlcs instru- !

Especially four persons whom we least ex¬ pected to see. Guess who they were? - Mary Gill Brooks,Bobby Shelton,Marion Davis,and Ofelisher Jackson. After dis¬ cussing past experiences we learned that each of them had served on the staff of the pop¬ ular Ebony Magazine. After learning this we were determined to learn more.So we made a date see each other the following day We were informed that Margaret Cash was a member of Katherine Dunnham’s dance troupe and Joan Young was personal secretary to P.D.Bluford,Pres. of A T College. We learned that Major Littlejohn was president of Morehouse Collec in Atlanta. Being satisfied with information we decided to attend a dance featuring Buddy Johnson. We had no knowledge of the sur¬ prise in store for us at Inter- mlssionl11 to our bewilderment Susie Mae Norman was crowned Miss Bronze America” by Buddy himself of course we were among the hundreds who rushed up to congradulate her.She was as much surprised to see us as we were to see her.She Invited us to her lavishly furnished apartment.She talked about her exciting ex¬ periences and didn’t hesitate to mention the fact that Jesse Ferg¬ uson was staring in motion plct- j es for M-G-M. She also said George Hutchinson had won the Nobel Prize for suceeding to ne- goiate peace between the wise and unwise ' . ' After hls store of information we were bubbling over with excitement of our Classmates Achievements. Our next thought was to re tom home and tell the home folk of our wonderful adventu.’e.
