CLASS HISTORY With unresourceful and disintegrating minds we retrospectively span a lapse of 12 years when five of the present 44 under the supervision of Mrs. Maye Simpson started building a canoe which today has grown into a huge vessel that tonight drops anchor and launches long enough to bid you adieu. These five members were Frankie Patrum, Aurelia Jameson, Maxine Faulkner, Cecelia Pickett, and Vernon ShufTett, Jr. In the second year of our construction and instruction Catherine Turner was our most kind and helpful aide. Followed by a third and fourth year under the supervision of Miss Pauline Pendleton and Miss Ella Phillips, respectively. Miss Claris Curry was our attendant on the 5th and 6th year of our voyage. In our seventh year our crew had so grown that segragation was the only probable way of our seeking correct attention, thus we had two instructors Miss Elizabeth Hodges and Miss Cleo Kemp, now Mrs. Avery ShufTett. Our class in our eighth year was reunited under Mrs. ShufTett and we made our first entree into the financial world by having a country store at the annual school carnival. Happy and as intellictual seekers we made our debut into a more salty brine and glied over a rapid and were at the port of Greensburg High School Sept. 4. 1940. Many country scholars climbed on board which brought our total passengers to the number of 63. Being more advanced and brillant we now demanded four tutors, these being Miss Mary Alice Thompson, Mr. Thomas Skaggs. Miss Grace Weller, and Mr. Clayton Hood. Our carnival feature was the Hall of Horrors with unusual receipts. Cecelia Pickett represented our class as Queen of the Carnival. Our Sophomore year was indeed as promising as any of the high school courses have been. This year our class was yet divided under, Miss Eva Barton, Mr. Thomas Skaggs. Mr. Clayton Hood and Miss Margaret Clayton. Our hearts were embittered at the sudden and untimely death of two of our most loyal boys Baxter Wil-kerson and Wilbert Carter. The biggest event of the year was our carnival performance. The Renfro Bam Dance. This year our Queen representative was Charlotte ShufTett, and Frankie Patrum as Diamond Queen who was a close runner up. Our Junior year opened up new fields of technical study and excitement, in that we staged our first play, "Don’t Darken My Door” under the excellent sponsorship of Mrs. William Blakeman and Miss Pearl Dossey. This year we really "brought home the bacon” in the carnival in that our musical program receipts exceeded all other classes. This year our class choose Arlene Bale to represent us as Queen. Feeling it our duty of tradition we entertained the seniors with a banquet in their honor. Worthy mention should be made of Bill Edwards. Charles Pickett, Edward Reeves, John Ed Hancock, and William Floyd, Jr. who patriotically gave up their school careers and answered the call to the colors of their and our country. September 4, 1943 found 44 eager members waiting to join the Senior Class. Mrs. Blakeman our beloved and capable sponsor came back again to aide us through our Senior year. Some outstanding achievements were our minstrel "Dark Town Strutters Ball.” an all girl minstrel, and our Senior Play, “You Wouldn't Fool Me.” Allene Shirley and Gusty Clark were highly honored in Chicago for outstanding work they did in 4-H Club work. This year Aurelia Jameson was our Diamond Ring candidate, and our Carnival Queen, Mrs. Carl Perry, was elected by an overwhelming majority of votes. We shall not in years to come forget the delightful banquet given in our honor by Miss Clayton and her Juniors. We feel that we have accomplished much in our course of work here at this high school. W’e trust that our contributions have not been in vain and we feel that our role in school and community activities will remain a shining example for future classes. In departing our hearts are tinged with a touch of proudness yet regret, as we leave our Alma Mater for coming classes. We realize that without the splendid co-operation of other classes and sponsors, and the untiring efforts of Mr. Sanders, our Superintendent, that our school success would not have been possible. Lastly we sorrowfully drop our heads at mention of losing Mrs. Blakeman whose ever-readiness to help us in disasters won for her the sincerest love of every senior, and it is she that we proudly lay bouquets at her feet on this our class night. CHARLOTTE SHUFFETT, Historian
