SENIOR CLASS HISTGRY fContinuedj
1 9 4 6 - 1 9 4 7
Another summer has passed and you see us now, a group of very intelligent
students who have profited from two years in High School. We are now ready
to carry on our duties as full-Hedged juniors.
After choosing Mr. Robinson as our advisor we completed the task of
electing our officers. The following were elected: for president, Robert Markleyg
vice president, Margaret Lucas, for our secretary, Lois Gerstenslagerg treasurer,
Bonnie Steele, jean Carter and Roger Reese represented us in the student council.
We worked hard this year--having bake sales, picking up potatoes, and
selling Christmas cards.
We presented our class play "A Case of Springtime" on April 11. It turned
out to be a great hit. The Seniors presented a beautiful bouquet of roses to us
after the play.
Our most memorable event of this year was the junior and Senior banquet.
It was held at "Dorns Country Housew.
We received our green and white class sweaters, also our class rings this year.
We lost several more members of our class this year, our total enrollment
was now eighteen.
All in all our junior year was quite successful and we left the 'Old Red
School House' with a longing to return next year.
We were a group of eighteen, sitting proudly in our seats on that fall day
in 1947. We were Seniors! After three years of climbing we had reached the top
rung in the ladder.
Our officers for this last unforgettable year are: President, Lois Gerstenslagerg
vice president, Robert Markleyg secretary, Bonnie Steele, treasurer, Martha jane
Fraryg our student council members for this year were jean Carter and Merle
Beachy. For our class advisor we chose Miss Weimer.
After weeks of hard work we gave our class play presentation, "My Cousin
From Texasu. It was a great success.
Because of our successful square dance back in '45 we decided to sponsor
another one. It was only one among the many events of our Senior year.
As our school days come to a close we try to make the most of every one.
Our memory will forever be associated with the 'Old Red School I-Iouse'. Humble,
proud and thankful eighteen Seniors leave behind them the happy, happy school
days, looking forward to our life which lies ahead. -Mary Jane Woods
