CLASS HISTORY f-00 On a bright sunny day in September of 1944, a group of scared but thrilled youngsters entered North High. After a few weeks of bells ringing, slippery halls, and many of us being lost from our home' rooms, everyone settled down for work. Some of the lucky low seven teachers were Miss Jimmie Harvill and Mrs. Henry Nance. The high seven students had Miss Minnie Barker, Miss Haddie Sanders, and Mrs. Ruth Cain. During the next two years of school there were new activities for the seventh and eighth graders. Some of the boys were on the junior High Basketball team and some of the girls were elected junior High Cheerleaders. Boy, were they thrilled!!!! The biggest events of the ninth grade for as we liked to be called, "Freshmen"J were the election of Superlatives and the planning of a party which was held in the library. In June of 1947, those who were eligible marched down the aisle of the auditorium to receive their ninth grade certificates. In the tenth grade everyone felt important because we were recognized as part of the Senior High School. Among the organizations which the various students took part in were the Dramatic Club Cwhich I might add produced some very good playsj, The YfTeens, and the Letter Club. At football practice every afternoon we could see Roy Prizzell, Eddie Wilson, James Loftin, Thurman Taylor, Albert Regg, Sid Cox, Ben Trotter, jesse Cole, Fred Clinard, and Taft Anderson. On the side, cheering the boys along and practicing were the cheer' leaders, with Lila Anne Crump as Captain. My, what a cute bunch of chicks!!!! As we moved one step closer to the end of our high school career we finally reached our Junior year. Those with a gleam of intelligence received an invitation to become a member of Nu Eta Sigma Chapter of the National Honor Society. This was a great achievement and was looked on as a great honor by all the students. Some of the more industrious students took part in the Diversified Occupaf tions program and became members of the T. and I. Club. Those students spent half of the day in school and half of it at their various jobs. One of the most important events of our Junior year was the carrying out of our plans for the annual juniorfSenior Prom. At last we have reached our Senior year. In this our last year many honors were achieved. John Hudson was elected President of the Student Body. Sue Ellen Sneed was elected President of the Senior Class. Lila Anne Crump and Cynthia Jones were CofEditors of the North Star. Battalion Commander of the R. O. T. C. was Ben Trotter and Battalion Sponsor was Lila Anne Crump. Lila Anne was also chosen "Football Queen" and her attendants were Wilma Haney and Sue Ellen Sneed. One morning, about three weeks after school started, the halls were a little brighter than usual because the Seniors had received their rings. Were we proud! And now on Graduation night, we are actually at that point about which we have dreamed, pre' paring to go into our graduation exercises. We notice the large audience made up of our friends. Help' ing to assure us of our appearance and to help us remain calm are our Senior sponsors, Miss Edythe Dickens, Miss Mary Halloran and Miss Eleanor Graham, who are merely continuing the aid they have given us all year. Tonight is a time for looking back and for looking forward. Looking back, we review our twelve school years and the memories associated with them. Old names, old events all seem to have been crowded into an unbelievably short time. Looking ahead, we can see the adult world which we are entering-through the light of our individual plans. Each of us cannot help thinking of the achieve' ments he wishes to attain, and the ambitions he wishes to realize. When at last we take our places on the stage, our emotions are mixed joy and sorrow . . but mostly joy at the goal we have attained. Dizronas CARTWRIGHT MILDRED CARTWRIGHT
