On September 1 1950 we made our blggest move toward
success ln the future we enrolled 1n h1gh school Of course t

a slgh of rellef when It was settled and we enrolled for our J'un1or
year, bnghtened by the fact that next year we would be SENIORS
although there were only ten of us left
The Senior year has been the most excltmg There are
everyone keeplng our secret Even Mr Beaty was surprxsed
The P1e Supper and Halloween Carnival provmded us w1th more
fun for our Semor Year Memory Book
Now as we plan for our Washxngton trxp and graduatxon we
are happy to have reached th1s goal but also sad because we w1l1
soon be graduatmg and leavlng all our fr1ends behmd but we w1ll
come back to v1s1t every chance we have
We leave to the .Tumors the never dymg hope of gettmg the
new gym and other thmgs we have needed but couldn t get We
were fortunate ln bemg the f1rst to get to use the typewriters that
were bought thls year
