FOUR LONG YEARS Aoo, a group of inexperienced
youngsters started on a career toward perfecting
themselves as citizens of tomorrow. Now as these
four years of educational work have come to a
close, let's look back and review the progress made
by us, the Seniors of the Owego Free Academy.
One hundred parcels of raw materials entered
the O. F. A. in the fall of ,49, set upon leaving
as finished products. The first year of polishing
began on the first step of the assembly line, where
each decided on a course or vocation. The fresh-
man class of ,So established themselves as a pro-
gressive and hard working class as early as their
first year. The sophomore year, the next step,
was the time of sizing and moulding together the
first year's experiences for the solid framework
required for the two years to follow.
Our teachers, the skilled workers in our little
factory, still had a tough job ahead of them,
which the raw materials, the students, did not
realize. But nevertheless during our junior year
we contributed much toward the improvement of
our ability, character and personal welfare. Then
came the final step toward the realization of a
great dream, the dream of becoming a senior. The
Senior Play, the Annual Commencement Exer-
cises, and finally the Senior Prom were in the
minds of all of us.
We have come a long way since our first ex-
periences in the fall of '5o. We believe that the
skilled workers in our modern factory have turned
out an excellent product from the raw materials
with which they started. This yearls senior class
has now been tested and is ready for delivery to
the ports of the world.
Dear Classmates :
The final mile has now been trodden
in our seemingly, never-ending march.
The curtain has risen and we are now
uncovered to the eyes of the world.
But before we come to that fork of the
road, I want to express my everlasting
gratitude to the Class of y53. Many
pleasant, exciting, and never-to-be-for
gotten experiences have been stored away
in my mind, never to be removed.
It has been a great honor and privilege
to have served as president of this year's
senior class. I will long cherish the mem-
ories of our final year in the O. F. A.
May God bless and keep you.
