Movrnf' onward step by step
llllltltl ll' ee
lor many years our loy al band
llas made rts way together
Of course we ve had a lot of help
From parents frrends and teachers
To them we grve our srateful thanl s
Through farr and stormy weather Wrth hopeful smrlrnf features
looltmg lllIO future years
Wrth eyes full of ambrtron
We te added year by year our part
Io Stratford llrgh s tradrtron
In all our work as well as pla
We ve done the DSSI we could
And we challenge any one, anywhere
To show us a class as good
We we laughed and play ed and had our fun
And now we have come at last
To graduatron and may we frnd
The future as sweet as the past
Based on the wrrtrngs of Jmtmy Ray Nrcl ols
All tlnngs must have a befvrnnrng and an end Thus rt was that our Senror Class of IQSI had
tts begrnnrng on an early day of September 1939 Of that prrmary group only frve have con
trnued on and frnrshed together They are Lela Corley Laura June Bryan Dorothy Pearl Wrl
lramson Bessre Jane Shr and Harrell Blackburn They were taught by Mrs Zealand Scott Wood
'lhrs was our frrst step rn the drrectron of graduatron
We contrnued happrly through the 2nd grade and rn our grdy ear we were Jomed by Eva Mae
Feds whom we welcomed gladly Our next addrtron came the followrng year when we acqurred
Brllv Bob Ashley
In the 5th tear we proved to be rather drstrngurshed rn the number ofspanlungs we recery ed
But we also presented fwrth a lrttle help from the 6th gradey a musrcalskrt called The Weddrng
of the Pa1nted Doll
The half wav mark our 6th year round two more students added to our roll call Dolores
Rerdel and Mary Frances Etherrdge were our new classmates and we were happy to have them
We were really startrng to grow as we entered Jr Hrgh rn the 7th grade Four more came rnto
our hardy group They were Benny Freeman Peggy Phrllrps Marye Ruth Jones and Loyd
Freeman Together we went through the 8th grade and rejorced that we had come thrs far toward
our frnal goal graduatron
Now at last we prepared to enter Hrgh School When the doors swung open for the term of
1947 48 the Freshman Class found ten eager puprls seekrng admrsslonrnto our clan We wrllrng
ly agreed to annex them and Brllye Betts Dortha McConnell Alrce Walgreen Betty Ann Crrsp
Jrmmy Macl Cosby Troy Henry Evan Jones Jrmmy Ray Nrchols Ray Dean Underwood and
Harold Wrrght became our classmates We were duly rmtrated and hazed by the Senrors ofthe
same year but we managed to turn the tables at the Freshman Senror party by puttrng castor orl
rnto the cokes we served the Senrors The results were qurte enough to avenge our rnruatron
Our class had proved able to answer for rtself
Our Sophomore year saw four capable students come rnto our rnrdst Avrs Savage George
Grantham Preston Grantham and George Marcum
Upperclassmen and Junrors we were now and hrgh fly rng ones Our candrdate for Acuvrty
Queen won the contest and our class play Comm Around the Mountarn was recerved en
thusrastrcally as one of the best ever grven We acqurred as sponsors Mrs Ruby Forrest and Mr
Martrn Red Loper two of the most popular rnstructors rn school In fact we were so fond of
them that we prevarled upon them to contrnue as sponsors for our next year
Our frnal year has been our best one We gave another hrghly regarded play called Tumblrn
Creek Our members were found rn all branches of actrvrtres and drd frne work Sammy Shr de
crded to cast herlot wrth us and has enthusrastrcallydone her partto add to the ments ofour class
Through the years our class members have taken honors rn their studres rn athletrcs F F A
Sc F II A musrc and dramatrcs The Senror Class ofI95I wrll long be remembered and proudly
harled as one of the most outstandrng rn the annals of Stratford l-hgh School Hrstory
