LEAVES OF GOLD PRESENTED BY THE 1965 TIGER STAFF NINTH AVENUE SCHOOL HENDERSONVILLE. N.C. CONTENTS Introduction Administration and Instruction High School Classes Elementary Classes Cluhs Features Sports Advertising 2 0, Ninth Avenue, we shall love thee As the years go by, Alma Mater, none above thee On us you can rely. As the days shall pass before us, Here our minds shall be. As the blue and gold wave o’er us, Ninth Avenue, we hail thee. Alma Mater, we shall never Fail to do our part Memories of you shall ever Linger in our hearts. Old Ninth Avenue, Old Ninth Avenue, To you we will be true. In our hearts you’ll live forever; You have brought us through. ALMA MATER 3 FOREWORD Leaves of gold! - - how brilliantly they shine upon the sky, and in nature reflect the stages of our lives. First, in the early spring there is the blossoming forth, the coming alive, as the leaves upon the bough present a glow of innocence. Then the glow of summer leaves adds deep color like the test of strength as a challenged youth. With a shorter step comes sweet Autumn, the golden gleam of an enriched life which adds beauty to fulfillment. This is the harbinger of that which is to come when there shall be no leaves on the tree, but when there remains a sweet memory of that which has been, and a glimpse of that which is to be. As the leaves on the tree blossom, come alive, become filled with golden promise, add beauty to fulfillment, and then cause one to look forward to the next bl ossoming, so do our lives here at Ninth Avenue School move through different stages from the blossoming forth to the fulfillment. In these pages that follow, reflect upon our deeds, our hopes, our fears, our friendships for the past year, as we present to you our “Leaves of Gold.” SOCIAL LIVING CITIZENSHIP TRAINING Driving Education students listen intently. 5 ACADEMIC ADVANCEMENT Seniors look for help. PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT Science Club performs experiment. Girls ' Physical Education class exercises, 6 DEDICATION Man, for ages, has thought of gold as a token of inestimable worth, as a sign of per¬ fection, and as a symbol of durability. So the members of the senior class have chosen to dedicate this yearbook to one of our friends who is of inestimable value, - to one who is " worth his weight in gold. " Just as gold ' s enduring qualities place it in esteem, so do we place you, Mr. James J. Pilgrim, Sr. , on a pedestal. Those who wish to succeed can realize from your example that hard work, cooperation, the will to succeed, and the desire to help others will bring triumph to all, as well as success to one. We owe you a debt of gratitude for your foresight, your careful planning, and your un¬ tiring efforts to establish higher standards which make not only our school, but also our community a better place. 7 PARENT - TEACHER ASSOCIATION OFFICERS: Mrs. Emma K. Simmons, Assistant Secretary; Mrs. Viola Payne, Vice-President; William King, Presi¬ dent; Mrs. Bernice Gash, Secretary; Mrs. Lydia Landrum, Treasurer; Mrs. Kathleen Williams, Chairman of Social Committee.

PRINCIPAL ' S MESSAGE TO THE SENIORS — You are in the early spring of your lives. You are the yet undeveloped resources of the human race. You are the hope of the future in school sweaters and bobby socks, with school books under your arms. In a few short years the world community will look to you for leadership. Will you be able to provide the skills needed- in the complex society of tomorrow ? The answer to this question is up to you. It will depend on how well you prepare yourselves for the diffi¬ cult tasks of tomorrow. In your struggle to overcome the obstacles of the present and future you mustforever remem¬ ber that we are living in a best man world. A world that is built upon the foundation of the man who is best prepared for the job. The challenge is yours, don ' t take it lightly. There are obstacles that you will encounter in your struggle for positions in this world of keen competi¬ tion. However, the wise man uses his obstacles as stepping stones in his struggle. Therefore, you must be wise, patient, considerate and understanding if you want to succeed in life. Seniors, I hope that each of you set your sights on real goals, that will enable you to make significant contributions to society. Remember as you move on from here, you must be cog¬ nizant of the fact that you must always try and give to your vocation the best that you have. If you do this, then, success will be yours.
