These boys and grls came from all parts of the county seehng that intangible thang known as educatlon. Judging from the expression on their faces, they were anxious to begin their pursuit. The journey has been to us like a long ride. We boarded the train at the bottom of the hill to start our first pert of the journey Our first engineer was Kiss. J T Anderson, and our first station was Freshman Ville We were about twenty five in number. Some of our members Joined the basketball teams and played a big part toward the success of the 'Green Hornets' In spite of the many difficultles we encountered, we were on our way to Sophomore Ville On this second part of the trip we noticed that the nunber had decreased quite a bit Mr S W. Jones was our eng1neer. Through cooperative planrnng and hard work, we participated in the Queens Contest. Ne showed interest in basket ball and xmsic Janie Goudlock and Margaret Golden were valuable playerss. As proud sophomores, we completed our second journey with flying colors and made a successful landing in Junlor Ville With the success of the past half of our Journey we gained courage, perseverance, and the ability to work harder Consequently, we d1d not fear what the last half of the journey would be l1ke With the same crew we started with our engineer, who was Mrs J D Robertson We partlcipated in the Queens Contest, dramat1cs, the first ll F.A Fair, basket ball, the I-Clubs, and Chorus first place w1th Iris Hi I declamation Juanita Aker won first place with her Tri-Hi I declamation Janie Goudlock was chosen the most outstandzmg girl in the high school. Darnell Tripp was chosen most outstanding boy :Ln the lngh school Robert Hutcherson and Darnell Tripp proved to be vital players on the basket ball team. 'ith these accomplishments, we were ready to start to Senior Ville with our last contribution 1n Junior Ville being a wonderful Junior-Senior Prom. In loading up for our last part of the trip, me discovered we had lost four more of our menbers The remalning fourteen of us leaned more and more on our motto which gulded us during the journey, We are c1inb1ng to success", ind weremore determined to complete the journey. Our engzmeer was llrs. ".S. Jones. We started the tr1p by participating in the contest, fair, and other School actitlties. Ie are about to end our journey and begm gazing over the path way of life. he we part, we uill carry with us the thought that we musnt be ready to face the test that the world is holdung before us With our many thoughts in theyears to come, there will always be a spot in our hearts that our dear Alm llater cm truly claim Ie shall mn every way prove our devotion and goyalty to her by showing the world through our work the good that she has one, Joseph Pritchett CIASS COLORS: Pink and Blue CIASS FIBER: Pink Carnation CIASS lI0'1'1'0 'WE are clzmbing to success' 5 Janie aoudlock was the NJ.
