We, the Senior Class of 1955, of Nahunta High School, have at last come near to one of our fondest dreams, graduating from high school. When we entered high school in 1951, there were thirty of us, with Mr. George Spirtos as our sponsor. Robert Edgerton was elected President; Gordon Wells, Vice President; Margaret Morris, Secretary; and Shelby Jean Pope, Treasurer. We were really green freshmen, and it took us a while to get used to the golden rules set for us. Our biggest thrill as a freshman was giving the Seniors a party. Vacation soon descended upon us after that. Just imagine us in the fall of 1952 as sophomores with Miss Louisiana Hurdle as our sponsor. We settled down and had a happy year. Gordon Wells was elected President; Robert Edgerton, Vice President; Margaret Morris, Secretary -Treasurer; and Dorothy Ivey, Reporter. Before we could even realize it, vacation was with us once more. That glorious fall of 1953 came when we returned to school as " jolly " Juniors. O ur class officers were Tommy Howell, President; Jonathan Hooks, Vice President; Dorothy Ivey, Secretary; Lula Belle Berry, Treasurer; and Margaret Morris, Reporter. Our first excitement was our Junior Play, " Everything Happens To Us, " which was a big success. Miss Rhoda Bone was our sponsor this year and she really worked hard to make the play a success. Then came the banquet when the Juniors and Seniors enjoyed an evening of pleasure in a Mexican atmosphere in the gymnasium. Then the commencement exer- cises came and naturally we just had to help the Seniors graduate. Jonathan Hooks, Dorothy Ivey, Margaret Morris, Bobby Fields, and Tommy Howell had the honor of being chosen marshals. In the fall of 1954 we came back to school with dreamy ideas. We were going to graduate in May. Our class officers elected were Allen Overman, President; Margaret Morris, Vice President; Dorothy Ivey, Secretary; Lula Belle Berry, Treasurer; and Gordon Wells, Reporter. Our first excitement was our Senior Play, " Professor, How Could You! " directed by our class advisor, Mrs. Molton Gurley. The play went off as a bigger success than we had ever hoped for. Then came our trip to Washington which was the crowning experience of our twelve years in school. And now, the commencement exercises which will put us out into the world on our own. May we take at this time just a moment to thank everyone who has helped us in any way to reach this goal. It is a long, hard road to travel, but the reward is waiting for you at the end.
