SENIORS President..................................Dean Bishop Vice-President..........................Barbara Rinesmith Secretary...............................Delores Beeson Treasurer.................................Nancy Thompson Thompson, Beeson, Rinesmith, Bishop Way back in ’44 a group of frightened freshman entered the doors of P.H.S. That group is the senior class of 1948. It wasn’t long until this class took its place in holding honors of the school. Nine of them were on the honor roll for the year. Under the sponsorship of Miss Miriam Church, they did their share in the freshman-sophomore class play. During the sophomore year, they gained many honors in speech, music, track, and all the other activities. The boys were playing on the first teams. Mr. Francis Hoke was their sponsor. Next came the junior year, they were upper classmen at last! This was an outstanding year. The class worked hard and made a large amount of money for the Junior-Senior Prom and Banquet. They sold magazine subscriptions and made well over a thousand dollars. This was possible only through their sponsor, Miss Annabel Scott. The class presented the hit play “Nine Girls.” Then came March, and P.H.S basketball team won state. As a final salute to the seniors, the juniors sponsored the prom and banquet. With the theme of “Rhapsody in Blue,” it was an occasion to be remembered. Nineteen Hundred and Forty-eight and school days are almost over! To raise funds for the Arena, the financial staff sold pop corn, ice cream, Christmas cards, Arenas, candy, and pencils and sponsored an all-school carnival. Seniors Dick Henson and Jack Roberts were elected as captains of basketball and football. This year the seniors led the classes in scholastic honors. They are looking forward to the closing days of school and anticipating what is to come in the future. Payc Thirteen
