In September 1951 twenty-seven ambitious but frightened
Freshmen entered the halls of W,R, H, S, During our first
year we gained Major Buehler and Paul Cornwe l. Later in
the year Leonard Fisher and Jack Gillow left us. At our
first class meeting on September 14 the following officers
were elected: President-Janice Baxter, Vice-President-
Karen Northcott, Secretary-Treasurer-Shirley Rickman, and
Reporter-Mary Mas sey. Student Council mem ers were
George French and Ne 1 Markham. On Initiation Day, in
burlap sacks, dunce caps and carrying milk buckets, we were
under the control of the Seniors.
School started in the next September with the same eager
students with Mr. Ben Tice as our sponsor. The following
were class officersg President-Gerald Fischer, Vice-Presi-
dent-Karen Northcott, Secretary-Treasurer-Janice Baxter,
Reporter-Vivian Long and Student Council-George French and
Nell Markham. We selected purple and white as our class
colors and white carnations as our flower. Our motto was
"Truth Gives Wing to Success". The Sophomoregirls were
awarded the honor of serving the Junior-Senior anquet.
As Juniors, with Mrs. Doris Harder and Mr. Paul
Bowersox as sponsors, we were now enjoying an "upper
cla'ssman" rating. Our officers for this year were: Presi-
dent-Jim Williams, Vice-President-Gerald Fischer, Sec-
retary-Janice Baxter, Treasurer-Karen Northcott, Report-
er-Shirley Rickman, Student Council-Vivian Long and
George French. On December 4th we presented 'Our Miss
Brooks", our Junior Play. It was a big success! The first
big highlight of the year was the day we received our class
rings. We dug deep in our pockets to pay for them but they
were worth it. The second and biggest highlight was the
Junior-Senior Banquet on April 22. We picked as our theme
"Hawaiian Cruise". To relieve our minds of our heav
school work we had a scavanger hunt and hamburger tyry.
After being stuffed to the brim we went on a hayrack ride.
As our final year rolled around we started out with the
same number of students. Later on we lost Lester Arb and
gained Betty McKinstry. With Mr. and Mrs. Ted Harder as
sponsors we elected as officers: President-Jim Williams,
Vice-President-Gerald Fischer, Secretary-Shirley Rickman,
Treasurer-Karen Northcott, Student Council-Janice Baxter
and George French. Again on October 12 we dug into our
pockets to pay for our enior pictures. To increase our
ankroll we had two paper drives to pick up magazines we
had sold our Junior Year. Another chance at acting came on
December 3rd when we presented our Senior play "Finders
Creepers". The yearbook staff was appointed and began
work on the second "Bulldog" annual. On April 26, dressed
fit to kill, we were guests at the Junior-Senior Banquet.
Bright and early the next morning we loaded ourselves into
the bus and were off to Rockaway Beach.
On Thursday, May 19th our high school days were brought
to a close by the Commencement Exercises. Thus leaving
twenty-five graduates each going' their own way.
