MEMORIA IN AFTERNA’ In Everlasting Remembrance Dedication ' 68 IN GRATEFUL APPRECIATION—We, the students of WEST CONCORD SCHOOL, proudly dedicate REFLECTIONS ’68 to one who is loved by all and who willingly gives of his time for the benefit of his students— COACH MICHAEL H. LACKEY. 3 CLASS OF ’68 As we reflect upon the months We spent here—we recall The times we faltered in our steps While drifting down the hall. At times we were not really sure Our energy would last— For we struggled over tests and grades And sometimes barely passed. Then there were times that we were sure We could not carry on— We stumbled blindly down our path-- Our strength and courage gone. But we had spirit—lofty goals-- We kept our heads up high, And with help from our faculty Gave it another try. So now in turn we pass the torch The one of fame and glory To next year’s class--to make our school An everlasting story. — Donna Berry— ADMINISTRATION School Board Left to right - Mr. Frank Bowers, Mr. J.
