To them we feel that we owe a debt of gratitude for the measure of success that we have attained at this point. We know that without the guidance, understanding, and financial support of our parents and citizens, a large part of our past efforts would have been in vain; and it will be because of their continuing inspiration that we shall be able to live up to our motto and move “Toward Higher Goals” in the years that lie ahead. THE SENIORS m PRIXCIPAL’S MESSAGE Greetings To Class Of ’55 My young friends, again it is my special privilege to congratulate and felicitate a group of future American citizens. It is my belief that the mature citizens of this County will be very happy as they examine your accomplishments over this short period of time. When we think of you “Yesterday” and “Today” we can but see that your future pos¬ sibilities for “Tomorrow” are unlimited. As we look through the yearbook edited by the class just before you, it brings happiness, coupled with smiles, because we well re¬ member how they labored together in order that your “Lighthouse” may continue to shine. We are certain that the experience gained from that publication meant much to them. Now you have had a similiar ex¬ perience and we shall look upon the 1955 “Lighthouse” with as much enthusiasm and happiness. As you leave us we want you to remember that all people of the world want peace, social progress and better standards of living. These are our hopes for tomorrow. You have a part to play in building a better world. The maroon and gold banner is now placed in your hands and if you uphold its principles, you too will contribute much to the peace and understanding of the world. God bless all of you and give you a long life of useful, happy service. W. H. Smith a. Ifi . . . 7y ry 7: f ■ »i 3 , i ' !-- ’i«r! ' ’j!?ai5r ' -Vl ' ' ' ' • . ■ _ _ . . I r ' - . 1 14 . . K- . .

We were very excited and eager to begin the secondary level of our educational career. On our arrival, all Freshmen assembled in rooms 5 and 6 of our old school, which is now an elementary school, and were later assigned to our various homerooms. Freshman “A” Class was under the leadership of Miss D. M. Turner, Freshman “B” Class was under the leadership of Mrs. L. P. King, and Freshman “C” Class was under the leadership of Mrs. H. D. Upshur, During that year we were represented in the Homecoming Activities by Hatterine Johnson of Section “A,” who was the runner up for Miss Homecoming. Armilla Rowley of Section “B” and Amanda Wright of Section “C.” In the May Day Activities we were honored to have Odelle Johnson of Section “B” as our May Queen. The other contestants were Shirley Usher and Elizabeth Savage. In September of 1952, we returned to Northampton County High School as determined and energetic Sophomores. We were more acquainted with the school and therefore we found our Sophomore year more interesting than our Freshman year. We were still very eager to par¬ ticipate in the extra-curricular activities of our school. We were represented in the Homecoming Activities by Gretchen Smith, Section “A,” who was runner-up, Anne Wilkins of Section “B,” and Virginia Allen, Section “C.” In the May Day Activity our contestants were Shirley Usher, Armilla Rowley and Mabel Harmon. On September 3, 1953, we entered our new building. Our new building plus the fact that we were Juniors made us very happy during that year. We were again honored by Odelle John¬ son who won the title of Miss Homecoming. The other contestants were Elizabeth Harris and Harriet Spady. We were very excited over the idea of planning the Junior-Senior Prom. We worked very hard and gave a very successful Prom. In the May Day Activity, we were represented by Gretchen Smith, Mary Fisher and Elizabeth Savage. So again in September of 1954, we returned to Northampton County High School. We entered with dll pride and dignity attributed to seniors. We had made up our minds that we would work hard and try to make our final year here at Northampton a cherished memory. We were divided into two groups and were under the guidance and leadership of Mrs. M. B. Poole and Mr. J. B. Cook. We were represented in the Homecoming Activity by Shirley Usher and Naomi Francis. We, the members of the “Senior Class,” feel that we owe most of our gratitude for the success of our training t o our Parents, Principal and Faculty. We shall always be grateful to these people who have guided and directed us in the paths which will lead us to success.
