NATIONAL HONOR MEMBERS
MESSAGE FROM STUDENT COUNCIL PRESIDENT
Student Council President
Fellow Students and Faculty
It is a great pleasure to be a grad of "43", and I’m sure my other classmates fell the same way. This class is not an ordinary one because it has been first in almost everthing throughout its four years. Our class sold the highest number of subscriptions for the senior issue of the Pe-kinois, won for the third time the inter-class track meet, and
has been high in scholastic honors as well.
We, the student council, thank the students and faculty for the fine support and cooperation that has been given us this past year. I personally want to thank the students and faculty for their excellent cooperation with the council. Never once can anyone say that the students and faculty of PCHS do not support their various activities. We
feel that such fine support as this plus the initiative of everyone in staying with a job until it is carried through make PCHS a superior school.
I am proud to say that I'm a grad of PCHS. There are many memories of my high school days that will live with me forever.
I would like to wish the best of luck to the new student council president who, I am sure, will receive the same fine support which I have received from everyone.
With cooperation and helpfulness, we can be sure to
"Hold true the loved traditions Which will lead our school to fame."
