It was a long, hard struggle to the eighth grade, but we were always looking forward to graduation and high school. Finally the great day came and we were " Green " Freshmen. We shall never forget Mr. DeHart ' s " Famous Words " , and all the planning and work that went into the Freshman-Eighth Grade Party. It wasn ' t long until we were Sophomores and thoroughly familiar with the " wilds " of Swain High. Frogs and flowers with plenty of exercise was the order of business for that year. Another year had passed, and now we were dignified Juniors ' , faced with the problems of " money " andthe Junior-Senior Prom. We chose the theme " Gay Paree” and it couldn ' t have been any gayer. The long-awaited day finally came, and we became sophisticated Sen¬ iors. And even with the contribution to our homecoming float of our wound¬ ed hero, we took the same old second place. We chose the motto " From Possibility to Realization " and the Morning Glory as our flower. Still, there were our rings, Washington trip, and the Junior-Senior Prom to look forward to. This is not the end, only the beginning. There will be college for some, jobs for some, and of course, the " M.R.S. " degree. Whatever our future, we have the best possible chance, for we are graduates of Swain County High School.
