5 olig ANAND FRIENI3
When we think of all the countless things you've done for us, as a student body
and as a person individually, it behooves us to take this form of expressing our sin-
The Way by which you have guided us toward the finer things of life is unex-
celled. As Dean of Administration, permit us to commend you on a job well-done.
Aside from flowery phrases and other modes of expression, allow us, in simple
words, to say "Thank you."

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
WINGATE SCHOOL was authorized by the Union Baptist Association at its fall session in 1895. It
opened its doors for students in the fall of 1896, and the charter was granted in 1897. The school was
operated in connection with the county school system until 19173 although, the property was owned
and controlled by the Baptists. From 1917 until 1923, the school was carried on by the Union, Mecklen-
burg-Cabarrus and Pee Dee Associations. Later, the Stanly, Anson, and Montgomery Associations in
North Carolina and the Chesterfield in South Carolina became affiliated. In 1923, Wingate School
became a Junior College and the North Carolina Baptist Convention assumed ownership and control. In
1930, the property was turned back to the original owners and has been operated by them ever since.
At present, the Baptist State Convention contributes to current support.
The College attempts to serve all who are interested in an education but is especially interested in
young people whose means are limited if they have ability and ambition. Its first objective is to
thoroughly prepare students who transfer to Senoir Colleges and Universities. This object is being
reached every year. The second objective is to serve young people who plan to go out into the walks
of life immediately upon Junior College graduation. The Christian atmosphere prevades on the campus
and shows itself later in the attitudes and accomplishments of its students.
In the fall of this year, the 50th anniversary will be held and a program is now under way to
have several buildings under construction by that time. The following buildings make up the plan:
Library, Boys' Dormitory, Girls' Dormitory, Dining Room, and Infirmary.
Wingate Junior College faces the future with hope and determination and plans to continue its
splendid record for the service of humanity.
