CG,1'd7J6l0g'Ll6 of Seniors As we were awakened bright and early on a September morning of 1946, few of us realized that we were about to experience one of the most sig- nificant days of our lives. Fifty-six of us were intro- duced to the process of education by Mrs. lrelan and Miss Bollinger. After our adventures with Dick and jane, we were greeted in the second grade by Mrs. Mathieson and Mrs. Becklehimer, formerly Miss Bollinger. We were ushered through our geography and science by our third grade teachers, Mrs. Kuhn and Mrs. Hodson. During this year, the construction of the new grade school building was completed. lt was here that we finished our elementary education. Having absorbed, adequately, the three R's we were welcomed into the fourth grade. We were di- rected through our multiplication and division fundamentals by Mrs. Merley and Miss Bevington. Miss Rose and Miss Bevington aided us through our fifth grade learning. As big shots of the grade school, we were the power of the safety patrol and got our first taste of inter-scholastic basketball. We were helped through our new experiences by Mrs. Kinder and Mr. Parker. Now we're in the seventh grade. Boy, are we scared! The idea of finding a different room every hour seemed impossible until Miss Keyes and Mr. Parker, our sponsors, explained to us that the first digit of the room number corresponded to the floor. After learning the ropes, we sailed smoothly to our eighth grade graduation. Among those who passed through our class dur- ing our first eight years were: Nancy McHatton, Laniese Myers, Ann Friend, Sandra Stewart, Toe Dale Miller, janet Moore, Tom Floor, Susie Barnes, Merl McGee, Iudy Walters, David Floor, George Mollencup, jacob Darling, Gary Parker, joe Made- ford, Don Wallis, Ieannette Lynn, Donnetta Chap- man, Ianie Willard, and Rhoda Gates. We started a new era in our education with new sponsors, Mrs. Dyer and Mr. Heltze-lg new subjects, and a new name - FRESHMEN! We elected our officers as follows: President, Gary Sicksg Vice-President, Bob Burkett, and Secretary- Treasurer, Catherine Byrd. Our graduation day seemed much closer as we took our places in high school. During this year we lost Paul A. Shoemaker, Mary Worden, and Le Roy Martin. With the coming of our Sophomore year and gaining Larry Stiver, we began our long climb to- ward financing our Senior trip. Our first step in this climb was the traditional all-school skating party. Mrs. Dyer and Mr. Wilcox were our sponsors this year. Our officers were: President, Bob Burkettg Vice-President, Bob Kirk, and Secretary-Treasurer, Catherine Byrd. Finally we entered our junior year. Our sponsors were Mrs. Waechter and Mr. Yager. Things really started to boom! The boys in our class were promi- nent on the basketball team. Many of us spent our nights for several weeks knocking on doors, selling magazines, but our star salesman, Bob Burkett, did his selling while lying in bed with a broken leg. During the second semester we could be seen at ballgames calling our wares of popcorn, ice cream, and cokes. When our sales began to lag, Larry Sheetz, our canteen manager, gave us a pep talk to encourage us to greater sales heights. On March l9 we started our preparation for our play, The Little Dog Laughed, under the direction of Mr. Yager. During the three weeks of play prac- tice we learned many things about some of the kids in our class. One of which was that Bev Powell, Merlee Smoker, and Bill Burkett seemed to be expert painters! ln the spring of the year we decorated the Steer- Inn and invited the Seniors to an evening of dining and dancing. All of these events might have been more difficult for us without the help of our sponsors, Mrs. Waech- ter and Mr. Yager, who walked along with our offi- cers, Kent Groninger, President, Bob, Kirk, Vice- President, Karna Hoffman, Secretary, and Eldon Rager, Treasurer. We ended our junior year by giving the Seniors a semi-formal farewell dance immediately following their graduation. Eleanor Hopkins, Catherine Byrd, Wilma Sterk, Bill Iunkin, Gary Sicks, Gale Cox, and Dale Cox left us during this year and Frank Urbahns, Paul S. Shoemaker and Cecil Kelley joined us. SENIORS, the goal which we had set as under- classmen, having been reached, we caught sight of a new goal - Graduation! Mrs. Waechter and Mr. Yager helped us to pre- pare for this goal. At our first class meeting we elected our class officers: President, Kent Groningerg Vice-President, jack Boyer, secretary, Karna Hoff- man, and Treasurer, Eldon Rager. Realizing that we still needed money for our Senior trip, we continued to w-ork in the can-teen. We supplemented our income by sponsoring a sock hop and selling ads for our yearbook. One of our most enjoyable money-making projects was our Senior play, directed by Mrs. Striggle. ln April many of us attended our last Sunshine- Hi-Y Banquet, and in May, instead of hosts, we were guests at the junior-Senior Reception. Sunday, April 25, we gathered at the Akron depot with families and friends. Amid the last minute goodbyes, we boarded the train and began our Senior trip, which took us through Washington and New York. ln one short week we spent all of the money which we had been earning for the past six years. On the night of May 22, as thirty-six of us, having gained Mary Ellen Maxwell and lost lack Shoe- maker, received diplomas, we realized that even our goal of graduation was not as significant as it had seemed. We understood that a goal is not a place to stop and put ambition aside, it is only a stepping stone in the path to higher goals. Only as we realized this did we capture the ful-l, meaning of our class motto: SO LITTLE DONE, SO MUCH TO DO.
