TO THE FUTURE
OF STERLING SCHOOL
As the first class to graduate from Sterling School, We hope that we
have set some standards and precedents which will be carried on by future
lt is one of our fondest wishes that this school should grow and prosper,
for the future holds great promise for both of us. The school must grow
and work as will the graduate in order to maintain its reputation and
So, we, the Class of 1959, dedicate this yearbook to the future of Ster-
ling School, its growth and prosperity.

NORMAN E. RIOUX, Headmaster
When one takes a few moments to reflect on Sterling
SchooI's first year, it immediately becomes apparent
that the success of this initial period has been due to
the cooperation and hard work of faculty and students
A camaraderie of an unusually high order exists at
Sterling School, and this mutual feeling should be
one which we will all strive to preserve in the years
to come. In many ways ours is a unique preparatory
school, and no small part of our individuality is due
to the spirit of the boys and masters.
In the years to come when many graduating classes
will have been pictured on annual pages such as these,
it will, I am sure, be easiest and most natural for me
to remember those members of the class of 1959. They
will stand out.
To each of you individually, I say return often, study
and work hard, and good, good luck.

The members of the class of 1959 have the honor
to be the first graduating class at Sterling School. Al-
though there are still some unfinished projects at Ster-
ling, the School has made phenomenal progress in so
short a time. A great amount of the credit for this
success should be given to the class of 1959 as a
whole. With the plans for the future which have been
made this year, it will not be long before many of
the loose ends will be tied. Although there have been
the usual differences of opinion about many parts of
school life, there hasn't been any mountain we couldn,t
surpass successfully. Every one of us has learned many
new things by being on the ground floor of this new
school. With Sterling's determination to learn also, we
are assured of continued success.
My duties as your president have taught me many
things about responsibility, leadership, and cooperation,
and I appreciate the help you have given me through-
out the year.
I wish all of you the best of happiness and success

rocking chair. Terry is Assistant Editor of the Sterling

sport fans. When in French class he is known as
"Harry Truman" because of his marked resemblance t
to the ex-president.
Tom Kendall has been one of the most faithful members
of the School Outing Club. Tom's tenor singing voice
stands out in Sterling School's Glee Club. Tom is a
good example of the old adage that still water runs

John Howard's huge form makes him the first person
you notice when he is in a crowd. However, his size
does not stop him from being very agile in both skiing
and football. Both in size and value to the Senior
Class, John is the ul-ligh man on the totem polef'
John Morreale has been an outstanding member of
both soccer and skiing. John always seems to do his
best on the Dance Committee, and Without his sug-
gestions many a social festivity would never exist. He
is also an important member of the Glee Club this
year for which he acted as manager.

Brian Leiding has had one of the biggest chores this
yea1' in being Editor of the Yearbook. In addition,
Brian has done his best to make sure that boys get
to Clee Club on time. The Editor is well known for
his little pantry in the back of his closet. Brian has
spent many hours in coaxing the boys to meet their
yearbook deadlines, have their pictures taken, and get
proofs retumed on time. His aim has been to make
the first Sterling Yearbook the best of them alll

Chuck Pfahler, the school athletic ringer, is well known
for his prowess in soccer and basketball. Chuck is
known as the smallest-but mightiest-boy at Sterling

Bob Pattillo has done a great deal to help Sterling
grow into a functioning preparatory school. As third
officer of the Council, Bob has had the arduous task
of taking all notes for all the school activities which
have taken place. For this we owe Bob a vote of thanks.
Bob has proved himself to be an able public speaker,
and demonstrated his talents when Sterling directed
the Sunday service at the Church on the Common.
