NORTH CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL
SENIOR HIGH BUILDING
Our Launching Pads
Through this annual we have tried to
forge a chain whose links are molded from
the memories of this school year. Our school
year is filled with many thingsg joys, sorrows,
anxieties, anticipations, and rewards. To
some, school is an insurmountable mountain
which they have failed to scale because of
circumstances. To the average student,
school is the cornerstone for the laying and
building of his future life. Still others con-
sider school a challenging summit in their
life and strive relentlessly to reach the top
through diligent study and higher education.
We hope that as you pass through this
annual that you will use this chain to firmly
anchor your memories of this year.
IUNIOR HIGH BUILDING
MR. DALE HILLARD
Mr. Hillard's field of teaching
was Industrial Arts , Math, Agriculture,
and Coaching. He coached several
championship clubs in Sylvania: junior
high and 1946 high school champs at
Pioneer High School.
One of his activities that he is
especially proud of occurred while he
was athletic director at Sylvania.
Through his guidance and efforts ,
55 ,OOO was raised in one year for flood
lights for night football. This is cer-
tainly only one of the many experience
that Mr. Hillard could recall after forty
one years of teaching.

A personality that has long graced the
halls of N.C. High will be missing next
year. Mr. Hillard, sometimes referred
to by students as "Fuzzy, " has retired
from his life-long profession---teaching.
Even though nicknames for teachers are
not appropo, this name was not disrespect-
fulp for Mr. Hillard was respected and
loved by nearly all students for his abil-
ity, humor, and understanding.
Mr. Hillard commenced teaching in
the one-room country school at North
Bridgewater in 19205 the next year was at
the Basswood country school, next 4 years
at Pioneer Iunior High. He completed
work for his bachelors degree by taking

spent at Burnham High in Sylvania, Ohio

SCHOOL LEADERS HIP
The improvement of education can only come about
through the combined efforts of the board of education,
executive head, teachers, and parents. Our board of
education is striving to provide competent teachers, ad-
equate facilities, and necessary materials to meet the
needs of our changing world. The results of their efforts
cannot be adequately measured at present but the future
will tell the story. There was one change in our board
during this school year. Mrs. Burl Dury replaced Mr.
Critchfield as he decided not to enter the fall election.
Mr. Brownson, executive head of our school system
for the past three years , is working to improve our school
system through efficient administration and direct per-
sonal contact with the students and their activities . He
lives with his wife Myrtle and daughters Brenda and Cindy
in rural Pioneer. He received his bachelors degree from
Ashland College and his masters degree from Ohio State

Another major accomplishment was the setting

revolves around the Arkwright twins, who must stay in a

Senior Band Sets a Peppy Pace
at Basketball Games
This seemed to be a very full year of activities for
the Senior High Band. Soon after school started they
participated with the other bands of the county at the
Williams County Fair. They were invited to march at
the homecoming festivities at Defiance College for their
homecoming football game. The band played at nearly
all home games during the basketball season and
marched at the North Central homecoming game with
Edgerton. The picture at the right was taken at this game.
Many weeks were spent practicing for the band con-
test that was held at Bowling Green. The band showed
improvement over last year. Several members participated
in the all-county music festival which was held at Edon

Arthur, a senior this year, was very
active in Vocational Agriculture and the Future
Farmers of America. He held an office in the
F.F.A. I-Ie was also a member of the high
school chorus. He is sincerely missed by
his classmates and school friends.

The picture above shows
Rev. Brennaman and Rev. Davis
receiving programs for the church
services commemorating FFA
week from Arthur. These pro-
grams were used by the churches
of the community.
At left is a picture of the
FFA officers including Arthur.
Our final year has been filled with
many activities , opportunities, pleas-
ureful moments, 'and feelings of sorrow.
The loss of Arthur and its shocking effect
will be remembered throughout our lives.
Our activities must certainly include the
magazine drive, trip to Brockleys in Adrian,
ordering senior pictures, Christmas dance,
senior play, party at Kintner's cottage,
senior trip, and graduation.
We had the opportunity to learn and
develop so that we could become self-
sufficient and mature citizens. Many of
us feel the urge for more education and
so---in the fall---it will be more readin-
Even though many of us could hardly
wait for graduation day, the memories of
our last year shall always remain dear
and close to our hearts . We will always
remember old N. C. H. S. Tfcasumf'
