OFFICAL MAP OF KiriBEKLr The Peanut Rzpxrti •4 iht OoAjxoA Uioti Suffolk High School 1956 3wimwJul: As all corporations publish an annual Statement of Condition, we herewith present to our stockholders and other interested par¬ ties The Peanut of 1956, being our faithfully rendered account of resources and liabilities. Our plant, Suffolk High School, opened for business in 1923 and has maintained a regu¬ lar schedule of production from that date. We have found it necessary to change models every year but we like to think that each design bears our special hallmark. Upon examining this report you will observe that our formula combines equal parts of “Labor”, “Management”, and “Program” blended with a liberal amount of school spirit and a dash of competition, the whole somewhat tempered by the pressing need for expansion of our facilities. We invite your continued support and patronage. Given, for the Staff, under our hand and seal. Subscribed and sworn to before me this 11th day of February, 1956, in the Clerk’s Office of the Circuit Court of the City of Suffolk, Virginia. V J 7 : t E A Lj: ; .... THE PLAN 9meAal fllanayeA V-lani JTLuiayeA ®£,dLcatLan To the parents of the 1956 grad¬ uates of Suffolk High School we dedicate, with respect and affection. Volume XXXIV of o n Annual Re¬ port. You are the “silent partners” without whom this “Special Dividend” could never have been declared. Please accept this simple tribute ac¬ companied by our prayer that we may ' ever merit your love, deserve your sacrifices, and reflect credit upon our Alma Mater. IftuMneAA 0. V1R. ARTHl R E.
