In September of 1949, 53 timid Freshmen students began their high school careers at Beech Grove High
School. That was us ..... I suppose our Freshman year was much like everyone else's first year -- kind of ex-
citing for us because we thought it was great to be in high school . . . at last!
As our Sophomore year began to pass, much like the first year, some changes became evident. First of
all, our number began to dwindle. Several people left school for various reasons -- some had jobs that they wanted
to work at full time, others changed schools. Following are the people who left during our sophomore year. Paul
Barton, Larry Horner, Prince Herzog, Roselyn Sells, Edith Clunie, Barbara Smith, Barbara E. Clark, Betty Orebough,
Carolyn Belcher, Joyce Hines, Arnold Purvis, Ruby Collins, Barbara Myers, Arlene Lady, Nancy McA1haney,
Catherine St. Clair.
In our Junior year we lost, by means of transfer to other schools, Chris Riemer and Jeanette O'Donoghue,
who had come to Beech Grove the year before. However, we gained seven new class members during this year,
and our number was on the upward trend once again.
The class worked teogether diligently for the prom, and we think we've had the best prom yet. We also
sold more magazines in our Jtmior year than any Junior class had ever sold. We were very proud of our accom-
plishments as Juniors. We gave a very successful class play, and we were all ready to work even harder to make
our Senior year a 'best Senior year. "
Maxine Grdolnik was the only class member who failed to return for her Senior year. She was one of the
most diligent people who helped to make our prom a success.
Our Junior Class officers were as follows:
President: Doyle Ogden
Vice-President: Nancy Schoo
Secretary: Gerry Chamley
Treasurer: Charlotte Brady
Now that we have achieved that "all time greatness, " which once seemed so important to be a "senior, '
I think that most everyone is reluctant to say that last goodbye to 'ye olde halls. " Our class now consists of 42
people, twelve less than we started with in our first year at Beech Grove. Our class officers this year are:
President: Earl Gray
Vice-President: Paul Baier
Secretary: Patty Wickens
Treasurer: Shirley Weathers
We, the Senior Class of nineteen hundred and fifty-three, are proud of our accomplishments in high
school, and we hope that the classes of the future can achieve their respective goals, and also have as many good
times as we have had in our high school years.
