Senior Class History
It was way back in 1942 when we, the class of 1946, became the new Freshman
class of West Canada Valley. In number, we were the largest class that West Canada
had yet seen, but this large class was soon to suffer the 1oss of many classmates who left
school. The teachers that were appointed to advise us were two new additions to the
faculty, Miss Flo and Mr. Healey.
Determined to make our class a success, we first took the responsibility of electing
officers. Norman Frank and Eloise Primeau were elected president and vicefpresident
respectively. The following spring, Gene Dickins was proclaimed valedictorian and
Steve Mankouski, salutatoriang the plans for our graduation to Senior High were begun.
The next year found our class in an entirely different position. We were
Sophomores, dreading the day when we would be humiliated by the upperclassmen in
the customary initiation. At last this dreaded day arrived, and the boys suffered in
women's clothes all day, while the girls wore heavy men's clothing, much to the gloating
pleasure of the Seniors. The choice for officers this year was Gene Dickins as president
and James Carney as vicefpresident. In the spring of our Sophomore year, our efforts
were turned toward a large St. Patrickls dance, which proved a success.
Our junior year brought us much hard work, most of which was to raise enough
money for our class rings. We held many vicfdances and it was necessary to pay large
amounts of dues, but when our rings arrived in February, we were more than repaid
for our efforts. Steve Mankouski and Carolyn McKerrow were elected to guide the
class this year as president and vicefpresident.
At last, in September 1945, our hopes of the past few years were realized, we were
Seniors. Now, we were the ones who had the privilege of using the front door, and
when we went to assembly, the other students stood until we were seated. Yes, there
were privileges for which we waited so long, but when we became Seniors, we were
also handed responsibilities that we had never had before. When one becomes a Senior,
he soon comes to realize that this is his last year in school, and the year seems to pass
almost too quickly. It is this year that a person realizes that the best days of his life are
spent in school.
In this year we welcomed the return of our supervising principal, John H. Moehle,
formerly Lieut. Moehle of the Navy.
We soon learned, much to our joy, that we were going to be allowed to take a trip
to New York, a privilege of which many classes before us were deprived because of
war. This opportunity has brought with it much hard work, however. It was necessary
for us to raise money if we were to go to New York.
Yes, we have had disappointing moments as well as happy ones, but the truth for
which we are most thankful is that we, the class of 1946, will be the first class in many
years to graduate into a world of peace and good will.
