These pages depict some of the highlights which cast their silhouette upon the backdrop of four years in Tarrant High School. As the seniors fondly reminisce, they hear again the authority in that deep bass voice, the happy voices singing the Alma Mater, or shouting with the cheerleaders. Go! Wildcatsl Go!
They experience again the thrill of ordering class rings, and being measured for cap and gown. They see again the parades, the Homecoming Queen, the Dental Clinic Queen—

—the spring prom; the time, the place, the decorations, the orchestra, the formal, the white jacket, and most important of all, the date.
—Finally, the suspense of hoping and fearing is rewarded with being tapped for the National Honor Society and the entire audience is filled with awe by the beautiful ceremony.Since 37 percent of the sophomores of 1956 came to Tarrant from Springdale, Pinson, Palmerdale, and Lewisburg, orientation was a unique experience. Long are the shadows of the new friendships formed, the first experience on a new stage, the admission to a new club, the informal parties, the square dance, ice-skating parties, and the picnic.

Consequently they have been able to use all available talent from different grade levels and departments.

May our hearts in love united
Faithful always be.
Raise your voices, swell the chorus.
Sing of Gold and Blue;
