Standing: Sandra Smith, Secretaryg Margo Dillon, President, Joanne Dettman, Vice-President, Virginia Allison, Treasurer The Senior Class of 1954, being the first class to complete our high school career in the new building, has many memories of the school, its system, and our own numerous accomplishments dur- ing the past four years. Because of the lack of space, we were unable to hold a class mixer, but by the spring of '51 we knew each other well enough to thoroughly enjoy ourselves at our first class picnic held at Sinnissippi Park. Mary Saunders, Craig Castle, Nancy Graham, and Nancy Kosier led our class with the en- thusiasm which never died throughout our last four years together. uThe Candy Carousel," our first chance to show the school exactly what we could do, as far as entertainment was concerned, turned out to be a real success. This dance, and many other events, made our Sophomore year one to always remember. John Carrillo, Fred Sinroll, Jean Bloomquist, and Merle Johnson formed the nucleus of the class, and passed along much information valuable to us during our first year out of "probation" Two years of experience, and the capable guidance of Neil Brown, Herb Reed, Janet Williams, and Larry Larson gave us, as Juniors, the spirit needed to excell in our many endeavors. This spirit seemed to shine more intensely during October of 752, as we won the Homecoming Parade fioat contest and held our second highly successful dance, '4The Jack-O-Lantern Jurnpf' A combination of ideas and skills formulated NFantasia,', the Junior-Senior Prom, and our largest project thus far. Eight of our classmates earned the honor of being inducted into the National Honor Society in the spring of '53. 16 Xl, - 1 1 i- ........ L .E...L-. l-114 'LJQ C J., W r Eflllzf fl Miss Doris Burritt and Miss Ruth Welle assisted and guided our class 'and our officers, Margo Dillon, Joanne Dettman, Sandra Smith, and Virginia Allison, in their usual congenial manner, which in itself gave our Senior year a finishing touch only friendship can add. Again in October, as was the year before, our class had a close race in the float contest in the Homecoming festivities, and finished with second place. Our boys, with the help of the entire coaching staff, credited the school and class with many high honors in the sports field. More classmates achieved success in Various competitive spheres, a few being music, debate, and essay contests. The Senior dances, Senior Recognition Day, the Senior class picnic, Baccalaureate, the Junior-Senior Prom, and last but not least, Gradua- tion, highlighted our fourth, and last year in the halls and classrooms of Sterling High School-our Alma Mater. 17 VIRGINIA MAE ALLISON: Latin Clubg Campus Clubg Robed Choirg Sophomore Chorusg Prom Q Monitorg Senior Treasurerg Senior Danceg Annual.

Blue 81 Gold Staff Moans, groans, and screams of sheer agony were heard during the past two semesters when a person passed through the northeast corridors, near the art room. Under these circumstances, the '54 Blue and Gold was carefully laid out and processed into the book which lies before you. Although many hours were spent in concentration, never let it be said that the members of the class of '54 were all work and no play. Many laughs and jokes accompanied the difficult work of composing a presentable annual. The co-editors, Billie Speer and Eileen Eberhardt, under the supervision and understanding guidance of Mr. Nehring, quickly disposed of the many problems which became apparent during their employment as head of the annual stall. Les Weinstine, business manager, Margo Dillon, club editor, Joanne Nicholson, social editor, Allan Hall, art editor, Lee Tyne and Joe Burkholder, photographers, along with their various committees and equipment aided the editors in every way possible in making the annual of this year complete. Because of the fact that this book is our last contribution to the school, we, the annual staff and class of '54, sincerely hope that you, the readers, will enjoy our annual as much as we have enjoyed assembling it. 52 Row I: Joann Denman, Trudy Worth, Helen Stern, Pat Hudson, Mary Saunders, Mimi Sheldon, and Virginia Allison.

It takes hours of concentration, writing, rewriting, and patience to assemble this paper so it will be presentable to its subscribers. Some of the added features appearing in the Script were: Platter Patter, Hi-School Shopper, Super Snooper, and Clara's Letter Home. Mary Saunders was the feature editor, Trudy Worth, news editor, Herb Reed, sports editor, Dana Johnson, business and circulation manager, and Joan Bowers, staff artist.

Row II: Virginia Allison, Sandra Smith, Ronnie Newell Trudy Worth and Joann Dettman. The National Honor Society was established in 1921 because high school principals believed that there was not enough attention and recognition given to students with high scholastic standards. In 1949 the local chapter was organized. ln order to become a member of this honored society a student must possess these four qualities: scholarship, leadership, character, and service. The individ- uals are recommended and selected by the faculty, and their names become known to everyone else during a very impressive 'itappingn ceremony. The members traveled to Walnut in December to induct new mmbers into their society. Also in December they inducted seven members of the senior class. They were: John De Wind, Margo Dillon, Herb Reed, Mary Saunders, Larry Larson, David Swehla, and Charlice Buyers. They also inducted some seniors and juniors in May. They presented a beautiful plaque to the school in the form of the societyis pin, only larger. The officers for this year were: Billie Speer, presidentg Joann Dettman, vice- presidentg and T d W ru y orth, secretary-treasurer. Mrs. Davis was the group's advisor. 57 onitors Whenever there is an errand to be run, a stranger in the build- ing, attendance slips to be collected, confusion in the halls, or any one of a dozen other tasks to be taken care of, the monitors of S. H. S. are always present and willing to help. To be chosen as a monitor, a student must be a senior in good standing, a co-operative and responsible person, and have a free period. The group met frequently with their advisor, Miss Krughoff, to discuss various problems or necessities. 4' SMWJ: me' ffm 99. if ' . . ,,,,, Q? Q Jfiifitffggg Row I: Jane Joan Bowers, Rose Meinen.

H. S. in the form of a beautifully decorated tree. The Student Council was re- sponsible for this. It is one of the most important functioning groups of the school. The organization also operated the school supply store all year for the convenience of the students. Building school moral and attitude was one of the most important projects undertaken by the council during the 1953-54 school term along with the collection for the polio benefit and backing the other school clubs. This group was under the leadership of Tusi Taualii, president, Neta Bowman, secretary and treasurer, and the guidance of Miss Krughoif. w l 5 Row I: Michael Flaningam, Bonnie Bowman, Gayle Minier, Trudy Worth, Janet Williams, Yvonne Dietz, Judy Summers, Karen Pickrel, Mildred Krughoff, advisor.

Mrs. Martin and Miss Shaver are given credit as being the capable advisors for the club. 73 In Memory Of Rikus Luebhers A friendly smile and greeting are two goals in life which many people never achieve. Rikus Luebbers mastered these essentials of friendship early in his short life, just as he achieved many high honors in all F. F. A. activities during his three and one-half years at S. H. S. These recognitions included the Greenhand Degree in his freshman year, Chapter Farmer dur- ing his sophomore year, and an all around honor of presenting and maintaining, for three years, the largest Supervised Farm- ing program of any S. H. S. Agricultural student in the past ten years. Rikus also received honors in 4-H. His untimely death prevented him from gaining the many awards awaiting him, one being the State LLH Master Dairyman, the highest honor given to a member of the 41-H. His fine personal qualities gained many friends at school, at home, in clubs, and most important of all, at church where he was an active member for years. His short life was filled with a goodness which made him a most memorable classmate of the students of S. H. S. and of the Senior class of 19541. 74- Future Farmers 7 fm Row I: Donald Brill, William Wade, Leonard Long, Gary Crossland, Rikus Luebbers, Bob Deets, Johann Biller, Frank Freas.

Instead of a losing season, the team turned the tables and came through with a very successful one. They won the inter- city title and finished second in the N. C. I. C. The Warriors placed several men on various honor teams throughout the state. Bernie Mitchell should be compli- mented on his team's success even though they were for the most part inexperienced.

Freshmen dominated the Frosh-Soph team this year, as a large number of sophomores were on the varsity. Because of inexperience, they had just an average season, winning three, losing three, and tying two. The squad should be strong next year because of the large number of freshmen. They have excellent potential for the future varsity squads. 105 Pee Wee Football ' as ROW 1: Ed Fassler, Earl Stanley, Bill Tarner.

They won 12 and lost only 4. Every team that defeated Sterling, Sterling gained revenge and defeated them later in the season. They finishd second in the N. C. 1. C. summer baseball pro- gram. Sterling's attack was lead by Carrillo, Puter- baugh, and Ohnen while Pete Dillon turned in some very fine performances on the mound. 5 1 Q 4 3 2 1 1 6 i I V , , Y I , R. . - f.1xwm-,Wmmmmmwwwmwmmwwwmg vw. , ,X X lk fw W X yiiigg-Wjyi i'f:,yAutographs sig 'gE75"pV7 'M 6 ,ff v 4, N XQW1 W 14 ,afffww 3 Q N F3 3 Fw X V 1 EQ W 3 Simi?
