DEDICATION TO THE CITIZENS OF NORTHAMPTON COUNTY We, the Senior Class of “61’ of Northampton County High, realizing the many contributions, and the great part the citizens of this country have played in helping us reach this station in life, pay tribute, by dedicating to them the 1961 edition of “THE LIGHTHOUSE”, It is with deepest respect and apprec¬ iation that we do this. As we graduate from Northampton County High School, we feel certain because of the fine spirit you have shown; we, as future citizens of America, will try to equal your civility. We further trust that you will continue to support the efforts of the County Educational System in order that others who will follow will be inspired to move forward. THE CLASS OF " 61 ” PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE Young people of the class of 1961, it is indeed a pleasure to congratulate a future group of American Frontiersmen. It is my conviction that the new frontiers, now awaiting you will be an incentive that will motivate you to move forward. In this most challenging age, it will make little difference what field of human endeavor you consider--whether science, the arts, the spiritual disciplines or other areas of living--your progress will depend on the maintenance of an atmosphere which will foster individual effort at its maximum level. It seems to me that you have, thus far, been exposed to such an atmosphere, and this being true, you should know that it has two essential components-- first, a maximum of opportunity for individual self expression; and secondly a maximum incentive for achievement. It will be well for you to remember that average performance is simply not enough, and if you are to enjoy your new frontiers and move forward, you must attempt the really difficult tasks, even while recognizing the possibility that you may not reach the Summit. Your world will be one that will be demanding individual excellency in order to survive. Now, as you go forth to face the new Frontiers of the Sixties, it is the hope of those who have had the good fortune of working with you that you will go forward implementing the ideas and ideals that will inspire new heights of achievement in your world of tomorrow. May God bless each of you and may your harvest be a good one. Remember that we shall always cherish the opportunity of having shared with you the formative period of your young lives. W. H.

Guidance is not something we do today and forget tomorrow. Guidance, like any other phase of the school program, must be “on going’ . However, at particular periods in the educational life of the child, guidance needs are accentuated. For example, most pupils in any school will need help in adjusting to a new school environment, in planning a high school program, or in selecting a college. As pupils approach these critical steps in the educational ladder, it is appropriate that group guidance activities be conducted. The Guidance Committee is attempting this type of group guidance as well as individual guidance through the following activities: A. Follow-up Studies B. Homeroom Guidance C. Personal Interview D. Student Progress Charts E. Career Day It is our hope that our efforts will be far-reaching and that our objective of guidance for all students will be met adequately. Members of the Committee are: Miss G. L, Brown, Counselor, Mrs. I. J. Williams, Mrs. L. U. Kornegay, Miss D. M. Turner, Mr. F. Brickhouse, Miss C. Y, Hayes (Not Shown), Mrs. B, M. Ervin and Mr. W.

We were divided into four sections by our principal, Mr. W. H. Smith and placed under the supervision of Mr. C. E, Jones, Miss E. E. Smaw, Mrs. M. B. Collins and Mrs. H. D, Upshur respectively. Under those teachers, we began our first year’s work with enthusiasm. We were represented in the Homecoming Festivities by Misses Gloria Spady, Carrie Weeks, Rosa Powell and Georgia Wynder. Also, we were represented in the May Day Festivities by Misses Mary Rowley, Margaret Lee (Miss May Day), Margaret Roane and Gladys Johnson. In September of 1957, we entered as Freshmen. Our advisors were Mr. E. Busch, Jr., Mrs. M, B. Collins, Miss A. J. Barber and Mr. J, Fields. We were represented in the Homecoming Festivities by Misses Bessie Burrows, Margie Stevens, Mabel Hallett and Ester Kates. We were represented in the May Day Festivities by Misses Carolyn Ayers (runner up), Ann Giddens, Lummie Morris and Gladys Johnson. During that year we made much progress and enjoyed our extra curricular activities. In September of 1958, we entered our school as sophisticated Sophomores and were more excited and eager to advance in our educational career. At the close of the term we were glad to know that our Sophomore year had been a success. Our homeroom teachers were Miss L. E. Upshur, Miss D. M. Turner, Miss J. Cumber and Mr, L. Burton, We were represented in the Homecoming Festivities by Misses Mary Rowley, Ann Giddens and Jannie Patterson. We were represented in the May Day Festivities by Misses Nancy Kenny, Deloris Wilkins and Sarah Rowley. We entered school in September 1959, as Junors and were placed under the supervision of the following teachers: Miss K. Y. Hayes, Mrs. N. Hastings, and Mr. K. Wright, We were represented in the Homecoming Festivities by Misses Evelyn Satchell, Carrie Weeks (runner up), and Mable Hallett. Also, we were represented in the May Day Festivities by Misses Dorothy Baines, Shirley Richardson and Sarah Rowley. All the things that we planned and accomplished were pointing toward our becoming the graduating class of 1961, In September 1960, we entered Northampton County High School as “Dignified Seniors”. We were divided into two sections by our Principal, Mr. W. H. Smith. Our advisors were Miss A, J. Barber and Mr. Odis Kornegay Jr. We were represented in the Homecoming Festivities by Miss Margaret K, Helm (Miss Homecoming) and Miss Deloris Onley. Upon reaching this year, we knew we were another step closer to our goal and future. To our parents, faculty and principal, we wish to express our grateful appreciation for the effort and time you have given us in the past that we might have success in the future. Margie Stevens, Historian SENIOR CLASS PRAYER We thank Thee Almighty God, for granting to us faith, courage and fortitude. We are humbly grateful to You oh! God, for our teachers, parents and friends, who have helped us, in their own way, to achieve this goal for which we have been striving. And Dear God, as we venture out into life, give us Your love, guidance and protection forevermore. Amen. Margaret Bray, Chaplain SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY As time marches on, let us march with it into the future. Be still! and you can see the members of the Class of “61” in their chosen professions. I see Tucker Spady and Charlie Starchia competing for the most valuable player on the Kenneth Reid Basketball team. Now I see that Shirley Richardson and Cleveland Smith are married and doing fine in their 32 room mansion. But guess who their servants are? Yes, they’re Deloris Foeman and Willie Crawford. Let us turn our attention towards Broadway. Playing at the Palace this week, is Moses Mapp, starring in “Mr. Wonderful”. This show is being produced and directed by the one time famous comedy team of Margaret Bray and Raleigh Upshur. Not so fortunate as these people is Rosa Powell. When Rosa Powell arrived in Hollywood to be a singer, she found the entire town deserted. It had gotten too hot there, due to the experiments conducted by the great scientists, James Williams and Melvin James. Here comes the President of the N.A.A.C.P., Margie Stevens, with her secretary, Viola Sample. They are on their way to Washington to make speeches on, “Are We Tired of Amos and Andy?” Bessie Burrows has opened a beauty salon. Her regular customers are: Ester Kates, Glora Wynder, Marva Stratton, James Moorefield, and Wilson Chandler, By the way, it is also a “Figure Control Salon”. Oh! Margaret Kaye Helm is now on the faculty of Northampton County High School, after turning down a job at our rival school in the next county. Sarah Rowley has also been hired as the secretary to the new principal, Mr. Leonard Spady, Jr, Ellen Goodwyn is now touring the state of Virginia making campaign speeches for her boss, Kiser Barnes, who is running for senator. Gloria Spady has employed the services of the great lawyer, Alfonso Walker to defend her. She is accused of eating doughnuts from Carrie Weeks’Doughnut Factory in Percellville, withou paying for them. Carrie’s detectives for the case are: Authur Ayers, Willie Johnson and Chief Otho Smith, Rudolph Custis is now an artist of great renown, with Isaiah Robinson as his assistant. His models are: Ruby Kellam, Margaret Roane, Betty Giddens and Martha Gulledge. The wealthy Mary Rowley, after marriage failure to Robert Mitchell, now makes frequent trips to Paris to have her nerves treated by Dr, Lummie Morris and Nurse Gloria Upshur. Wait! What is this we see? Elizabeth Lofland, a model for the Yellow Polka Dot Bikini Company, Also employed with the same company, is Regina Scarborough, Geraldine Boyd, and Louise Garrison. The company is owned by Caleb and John Collins. Jannie Patterson is now the head of a three room school. Her co-workers are, William Jackson and Beatrice Turner. The ex-football star, William Roselle, has retired to his Texas Cattle Ranch. His hired hands are: Elijah Williams, John Thomas and Floyd Kellam. The Famous musical duet, Carolyn Ayers and Thomas Sample, is touring the country with their manager, Dorothy Baines, Let us turn our attention to T.V. There is a new panel show on Channel 2,“Who’ll Smile Next”, starring Doretha Toyes, Delores Onley, Ernestine Jones, and Evelyn Satchell. Later that evening, you will be able to see Lawrence Satchell and Edward Satchell’s Farm Show. Martha Spady and Isaiah Wilson have finally reached the altar. Luvell James will perform the ceremony while Nancy Kenny sings, “O Promise Me”, The photographers, Alvis Rogers, Lorenza Thomas and Thomas Nottingham are on hand to take pictures of this event. Our smiling Used Car Dealers are: Leon Nock and Paul Townsend. They are ready to take your new car and give you an old one. You see, they need to see the eye doctor, Purnell Collins. We must stop now, for as time marches on, we grow tired and weary, and therefore, have to stop for rest. So, see you next year when we again search the unknown for the future professions of our classmates. Margaret K. Helm SENIOR CLASS WILL Carolyn Ayers wills her neatness to Hattie Andrews.
