CLASS HIISTORY By BOBBIE JEAN EZEKIEL lt came to pass in the fall of the year l956, a long gold dreamlined plane bearing the Class of l96O came to land at the airport of United Air Lines of South Girard High School. The passengers carried little necessary baggage. Most of their possessions included some native ability, a few brains, much conceit and more good humor, They were all given the entrance intelligence test, and it was found that 8096 of the class were intelligent without being intellectual. This result was based on the fact that BOW: read the comic sections of the news- papers first. The first big problem attacked by the class was the selection of the class colors- the attack lasted throughout the year. Much research in colors was carried on, which proved most discouraging. The statistics showed blue and white to be most popular, with two thousand high schools selecting them. The next in popularity was pink and blue, then lavender and white with lOO variations of lavender. There didn't seem to be much left for us to choose. But we came up with two splendid colors-"Pink and Green." Vie chose as our motto-WE ARE STRIVING TO MOVE AHEAD. We selected the Pink Carnation for our class flower. This year passed swiftly. Our class sponsors were Mrs. Hattie Richmond and Mr. Lester Mason. After ups and downs of the Freshman year, we were transferred the next year to a larger plane, the Sophomore, which was better equipped for rougher travel. The passengers list changed somewhat when the following persons got aboard: James Barge, Claudette Blackmon, Barbara Broadnax, Shearline Brooks, Claudette Coar, Willie Chambers, Marvin Davis, Carolyn Day, Eddie Eaves, Isaac Edmond, Minnie Golden, Mertis Harris, Gladys Henry, Annie Hill, Annie Johnson, Johnnie Jones, Robert Meadows, Lamar Stroud, James Walker, Eddie Williams, and Mamie Williams. Some interesting achievements were made by some of our new passengers. Eddie iPetel Williams, James iLa.zaJ Barge, and Calvin iHufJ ,Richardson began their championship-like basketball career. Lucilei Gaines was elected attendant to "Miss Blue Streak." Our sponsors were Mrs. A. H, Lowe and Mr. L. Mason. All too soon we found ourselves aboard the Junior Plane. Many otustanding accomplish- menst were made. Eva Averette, Carolyn Day, Bobbie Ezekiel, Ethel Ezekiel, Deloris Harris, Mertis Harris, Alberta, Hubbard, Glady's Henry, Joyce Kimber, lmo Redd, Betsy Gordon, Willie Chambers, Robert Meadows, Nathaniel Perry, Julius Redd, and Isaac Edmond were honored for their outstanding scholastic abilities. Willie Chambers, Nathaniel Perry, Charlie Ingram, James Austin and Walter Jackson received awards from the band. We were in charge of the Junior and Senior Prom. lt was held at the Masonic Auditorium. The Juniors and Seniors enjoyed dancing to the music of .the "MeIlotones" of Tuskegee Institute, Alabama, Mr. Lamar Smith, Mr. Lester Mason, Mr. Leo T, Harrison were our sponsors. Through intensive study we learned many things, first, that it does not pay to fly to too great heights, secondly, that an airplane is a great convenience, but we must not run it into the ground, thirdly, that education is a wonderful thing, Finally, we found ourselves flying the Senior Plane. The new passengers that boarded our Senior Plane were Lonnie Jackson, Lenoria Lamb, Janie Spencer, Jesse Harris, Samuel Shortz, and Logie Talley, making a total of sixty-six students on roll. The football season was a very successful one with members of the senior class, Eddie Williams, Calvin Richardson, James Barge, James Walker, Lamar Stroud, Cary Hammond, Eddie Eaves, and Jesse Harris playing on the team. Our homecoming game was the highlight of the season. We played the Henry County Training School of Abbeville, Alabama and won by a score of 40-7. The homecoming queen, "Miss Blue Streak" and her attendants were all from the Senior Class. Lucille Gaines was elected queen. Earnestine Henry and Evelyn Reynolds were attendants. Our basketball season so far has been a tremendous challenge. We've played thirteen games with twelve winnings and one lost. Our home games were played at Mother Mary Mission Gymnasium. We defeated Spencer High School by a score of 6l-60 in the most spectacular game played this year in the Chattahoochee Valley area. Each member of the class has passed the requirements and is ready to make a solo flight and take off for parts unknown, This, our most succesful year, has ended in several en- gagements for the chorus, the dramatic club and others. Janie Spencer and Julius Redd have joined the recently organized business club, availing themselves of an opportunity to make a hit in the business world. The class was organized under the instruction of Mr. Eirkus Bailes. Janie Spencer and Julius Redd are striving hard to become professional typists. During this last year of flying hours, our plane has gone to higher altitudes, the way has often been rough and bumpy, but the view of the skyline below has been glorious and majestic. As we flew up above the clouds, we learned to appreciate the skill of the Pilots who taught us and the championship of the class members.
