It was a new ship about to make its first sail in carrying many passengers to the glorious Land of Great Wisdom. This was a great day in the history of this proud ship as many people witnessed the eighteen students making preparations to sail. There were questions in the minds of the passengers as to what the crew of two high school teachers and three elementary teachers would endeavor to put before them as the voyage pro- gressed. Their minds were put at ease as they witnessed the capability of their Captain, Mr. Isaac T. Graham. His diligence and perseverance removed all possible doubt from their minds. They knew that, even though there would be great hardships ahead, they could put their trust in him to lead them through. As the ship docked annually it acquired more passengers and soon outgrew its seven class- rooms. In 1952-53 the vessel acquired a cafeteria and eight classrooms after having been in- troduced to an entire new host of students from two neighboring schools. In the year of 1953, the name of the ship was changed in honor of two great admirals who had been brave leaders in the establishment of Negro High Schools in Mecklenburg County. The admirals were Mr. Frank Lytle and Professor I.D. Torrence. When the great ship of Torrence-Lytle High School launched into another prosperous year in 1957, it proudly displayed its addition of twelve classrooms, a science laboratory, a home economics department, a gymtorium and an agriculture building. Today, the grand ship of Torrence-Lytle High School still proudly sails the seas of knowl- edge. It has docked at the Land of Great Wisdom many, who ever-pride the service of this ves- sel. In this year of 1966, it set out to sea with 964 students aboard, 45 teachers and five custod- ians composing the crew. All of this with Mr. Isaac T. Graham as Captain, and Mr. R. C. Mc- Hwain as Co-captain, has brought this ship through many journeys. This great ship has made many wonderful voyages striving to acquire all things which wovtld be of service to the passengers in the Voyage of Real Life. It has not faced any gale which it could not withstand, nor has it wrecked upon the shoals of any threatening task. Its capabilities have enabled it to procure the necessary passport at the entrance of each succeeding sea. This great ship has nursed seasick passengers back to the realm of intelligence and wisdom. Sail on, thou proud and mighty vessel. The tempests toss thee ' bout in vain Because thy sturdy-buUt foundation Will ever bring you back again. 3 red i|iemop sy».

She accepts responsibility graciously; she performs her many duties efficiently. Even though she was not employed in the summer library program, Betty offered her services free. She was always available to the school in any way possible. When it became necessary to replace Mrs. Reid as secretary to the librarian, Betty, because of her willingness to work and her efficiency as a secretary, was promptly hired by the School Board. To prepare herself to fulfill her ambition to become an executive secretary, Betty attended the Southeastern Business College, Durham, North Carolina, in the fall of 1964. She has enrolled in the Executive Secretarial Course in Central Piedmont Community College, Charlotte, North Carolina. Miss Caldwell is the secretary to the librarian at our school. Her motto, " Do unto others as you would have them do unto you " is exemplified in her daily contact with others. Her hobbies are reading and cooking. Miss Betty Caldwell, the Trojanette of the year, we salute you. 5 YEARBOOK STAFF Norma Carr Editor-in-chief Gloria Caldwell Chairman Layout Committee Barbara Alexander Chairman Advertisement Committee Bessie Carr Co-Editor Paul Gibson Chairman Art Committee Joanne Young Chairman Patrons Committee 4 DEDICATION As we view in retrospect the history of Torrence-Lytle High School, we find that we have Mr. Isaac T. Graham to thank for the great attain- ments of our school. His noble endeavors and faithfulness to this, OUR school, have made him our honorable and skillful commander. His dili- gence in so leading us on to adventures in the acquirement of a good edu- cation so delegate him to be selected by the seniors of 1966 as the person to whom we will dedicate our annual, THE TROJAN. Upon our departure from this school we only hope we can maintain the principles that you, Mr. Graham, have so earnestly striven to instill into our hearts and minds during our stay here. No matter where we venture, your sustenance to us will never be forgotten. To you, we devotedly and affectionately say " Thank you. " 6 ' I ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL R. C. Mcllwain 9 THE WORDS OF OUR PRINCIPAL rv»k ’ ' E m il Congratulations to the graduating class of 1966. You have the unique distinction of being the last class to graduate from Torrence- Lytle High School. You represent the end of a dream for education and prog ress for Negro youth of this district through facilities, equipment, and encourage- ments from an all Negro school. It should certainly behove each of you to prove worthy of the distinction you enjoy. May you ever exemplify the ideals, attitudes, inspiration and aspiration that your teachers and parents have striven hard to instill with- in you. It is one great hope of all of us who have been privileged to have a part in shaping your lives and molding your character, that you have acquired or developed an insatiable desire to achieve and excel and to make a contribution to society commensurate with your ability. Many students who have preceded you have made achievements worthy of high commendations. May you, too, make " footprints " that others will be honored to follow. As our school, and perhaps many of us, are phased out of the educa- tional process, our old dream has already been replaced by a new and greater hope upon the horizon. Our cup of joy overflows as a real op- portunity for a better education for Negro youth of our community becomes a reality. You, who now leave to take your respective places in a world that is very cruel to the unintelligent, the uninformed and the unprepared individual, must never forget that you have just begun your education. With the proper attitude and an open mind, your high school career should leave you properly prepared for the most fruitful and challenging days of a suc- cessful life. Let each block placed within your path become a stepping stone, and each failure a proving ground for a successful adventure. Aim high, think tall, and work with an indomitable determination to succeed, and success will be yours. 8 " There is no teaching until the pupil is brought in To the same state or principle in which you are; a Transfusion takes place; he is you, and you are he; There is a teaching; and by no unfriendly chance or Bad company can he ever quite lose the benefit.” EMERSON Mrs. Mae C.
