Freedom Places Responsibility
Upon the Individual
Some persons in this great land of ours,
yes-and in this school of ours, are not very
aware of the great reponsibility that FREE-
DOM places upon the individual. If one
considers what freedom really is, it becomes
obvious that freedom means only that a
person is free to do what he ought to do. He
is also free to pay the penalty for wrong
As we come to the end of another year it
is good to think back on the past-andyet
to look ahead to the future. First, may I
thank you for the cooperation you have
given the school this year. The courteous
way you treat your friends, your teachers,
and visitors to our buildingg your loyalty
to your schoolg your participation in the
activities of the school-these are the things
that are REALLY important to you and to
communities in which you will reside! W'e
should never forget that the citizens of Spo-
kane, through tax sources, provide educa-
tional opportunities for us that are unknown
to most of the world. Wfhere else does free-
dom abound? lflfhere else does the individual
have such free choice in determining his own
future? "lNhere, oh where, but in America?"
Take time at the end of this year to say
a word of appreciation-to parents, to friends,
to teachers, to your community, to all who
have given you assistance in developing
yourself toward a worthwhile future.
To those who will not be returning to
North Central next year we give our kindest
regards and send our best wishes, especially
to GRADUATES who will be finding their
way into new experiences in life. May you
retain fond memories of your years at North
Central, and may that which you have
learned assist you in attaining those positive
goals you have established.
Being a busy man, John P. Rodkey, Principal, scarcely takes time
