| The year nineteen hundred and
forty-six ushered in a new freshman class, comprising one hundred lads
and lasses who were ready to file through the classrooms of N.H.S.
Although our heads were bowed low with our heavy schedules, we found
time to enjoy social functions, such as our first dance, the Freshman
Party. This was like opening a door to pleasant recollections of the
hectic days when we were lowly freshmen.
As sophomores we found ourselves well
established in high school. We point with pride to the fact that during
this term many of our members who were interested in athletics earned
positions on our Junior Varsity football and basketball teams. It was
during this year our ability to study came to its greatest test. With
the closing of school, we realized that we had completed half of the
obstacles that lie in the path of those who seek to attain that final
With the arrival of September, we found that
our class had dwindled to eighty-five members; but our dignity as
juniors was not daunted by our number. Our superiority complex was soon
stripped from us when we awoke to the realization that only a year
separated us from that objective which we had so coveted as freshmen.
Class rings, athletics, the Junior Prom, and new courses occupied our
leisure time both scholastically and socially. Another milestone in our
march toward attainment of our goal had passed, and next fall we would
return as members of the senior class.
And now that we have become seniors, we put
away childish pleasures and tried to act as adults. At the beginning of
this term, our class consisted of eighty-three members; but due to the
loss of William Bond, who is now serving in the Armed Forces, and Harry
Brocious, who has since transferred to another school, we approach
graduation with a class of eighty-one members. With the acquisition of
the title of seniors, we began to assume some dignity, and we realized
the trials and tribulations of life which would lie before us.
With the training we received during our four
year interlude at Nesquehoning High School, we face the future with
confidence, courage, and determination.
Bidding farewell to our Alma Mater, we cherish
these never-to-be-forgotten memories that we enjoyed within the walls of
Nesquehoning High School.
