Senior Class History
Four years ago on September 2nd the class of '56, 227 strong, invaded the hal-
lowed halls of S.H.S. Our very capable ofiicers for the first year wereg .lim Austin, Bob
Brown, Georgia Wadsworth, and Carol Wetzell. Cooperative and full of ideas, we success-
fully held the Freshmen Mixer to the strain ofi'You Belong to Me" and square-dancing
calls. The following spring, we held a riotous picnic at Sinnissippi Park.
During our second year, we ordered class rings, feeling sure they were the prettiest
ever. The "Heart Hop" in February was our first all-school dance and we found that by
hard work, we could achieve good results. Our athletes showed promise of great things
as did our students in all fields as we moved into honorary positions. Jim Gebhardt, Sue
Kannaka, Chuck Peugh, and Linda McCoy led us through a memorable Sophomore year.
By the time we were Juniors, we had gained much experience in the way of using
our ingenuity. Our float "Whip Those Barbsn with its barefoot slaves won first prize in
the Homecoming Parade. Another high-light was the induction of eleven Juniors into the
Honor Society. To top off our third year, we staged the Prom, "Pink Paradisev, which
was the first to be held in the fieldhouse. This busy year was led by Keith Bos, Dianna
Roden, Larry Sterenberg, and Jim Appenzeller.
Under the friendly guidance of Miss Doris Burritt and Miss Ruth Welle, and the
leadership of Larry Sterenberg, Eugene Zinanni, Shirley Lindsay, and Beth Richter, we
entered our Senior year. As a class we enjoyed the Senior Dance, Recognition Day, Prom,
Baccalaureate, and at last, Graduation. We are proud of our class and the honors gained
in athletics, dramatics, music, journalism, scholarship, and good citizenship.
"We will always love thy honored name,
And through us we'll try to spread thy famef'

It is 1966 in the celestial kingdom and the time has come for Ahskiwawa, the S.H.S. guardian war-
rior angel and Skiniwawa, the S.H.S. guardian squaw angel to climb upon their heavenly horse of clouds,
Rickety Rackety Boom, and swoop down to earth. It is their duty to venture over the world and make
sure that the class of '56 is leading a life of pleasure and success. All the other guardian angels are en-
vious of these two, because the class of '56 is a pretty special class, and Ahskiwawa and Skiniwawa

As upperclassmen, the class of 1957 had a very successful year. The class was led by
Gary Wheelock, president, Gary Hunsburger, vice-president, Frank Wagner, secretary,
Gerald Wise, treasurer, and Judy Sommers and Don Cox, Student Council representatives.
The Junior class was advised by Miss Shaver and Mr. Clopper.
By hard work and ingenuity, the Juniors entered the first prize float in the Homecom-
ing Parade. Again, the main project this year was the Prom. Selling candy was the main
money project for this lovely affair which was again held in the field house.

The Sophomores completed a successful and busy year under the advisorship of Miss Marjorie Schu-
maker and Mr. R. ,lune Lee and the leadership of president Bev Deets, vice-president David Davis, secretary
Ken Engel, treasurer Judy Bressler, and student Council representative Brian Buyers.
In February the annual Valentine Dance was sponsored by the Sophomores. Their clever ideas and dif-
ferent approach turned it into one of the big social successes of the school year. The class also selected their
beautiful and very modern class rings.

In Memoriam-Larry Woodring
Was he pressing on,
Doing his best, looking forward
To the future,
Holding the thread of life
Firm in his patient hands,
Then God deemed fit
To cut the thread, to bear him away.
Do not mourn, He is happy there.
But-we miss him.

antics. These were contributed by Bill Hutten, the art editor, whose clever pencil and ideas
added so much to this annual. Other art designing was done by Dianna Roden.

The written account of this year,s activities was done by Carol Wetzell and her club
staff, Earl Wolf and his sports staff, and the editors. They deserve a big vote of thanks for

Last, but certainly not least, our thanks go to Mr. Neahring, our advisor. His patience,
helpfulness, and suggestions were never-ending. Certainly, we could never have come
through this year successfully without his help.
Most of all, we hope you, the students of S.H.S., will enjoy our account of the events
ofthe year l955-l956.

Ten big issues of the Script this year were the result of a lot of hard work on the part
of the editors. The editors had their own exclusive homeroom for the purpose of planning
the issues. It was their task to see that all material was read, typed, proofread, and rewrit-
ten, if necessary. This year they have put even more time into the publication by planning
the layout of each issue.
New columns were added which included the Ca. spus Corner, a column giving infor-
mation on all phases of college education and articles on classes and jobs.
The students who have volunteered so much time and efiiort to the publication of the
Script were Don Hauger, editor-in-chief, Georgia Wadsworth, feature editor, Pat Barlow,
news editor, Lowell Tillman, sports editor, Phyllis Bielema, business manager, Barb
Reed, assistant business manager, Sally Wendell, exchange editor, Judy Powell, staff artist,

' X In 1921 the National Honor Society was started because high school principals felt
QV h .re was not enough recognition given to students who obtained high scholastic records.
The local chapter of the society was organized in 1949.
There are four main qualities which a student must possess to be chosen for member-
X ship by the faculty. They are: scholarship, which is determined by grades for the four
years, leadership, which is the ability to actually lead others or to inspire them towards
, good thinking and worthwhile action, service, which is helpfulness and willingness to
serve, and character, or one's moral standards and ideals.
X New members are inducted by a very impressive "tapping" ceremony. They recite
the pledge: Nl pledge myself to uphold the high purpose of the National Honor Society to
which 1 have been elected, 1 will be loyal at all times to my school, and will maintain and

The Sterling High School Golden Warrior Baseball team enjoyed another fine base-
ball season and their second consecutive NCTC championship.
Much of the team's success was due to the fine battery work by Benson, Huffman,
Seeley, and Cehlson, who collaborated to hang up a l4--2 record, one of the best seasons
ever enjoyed by the Golden Warriors.
The race for the hunting was a close one right down to the wire with Rock Falls, De-
Kalk, and Sterling battling it out into the final week of play. The Warriors managed to
spilt even with a fine DeKalb team and then go on to a two game margin by nosing outa
heads-up Rock Falls club in a three game series. This series was the crucial one for both
local teams and the hard earned victories clinched the title for Sterling Township.
Captain Bruce Kunde
This year's S. H. S. Colden Warriors came through again in line style with
a winning season. While compiling a fine record of five wins, three losses, and

title. Coach Bernie Mitchell is to be complimented on the success of the team.
