| What an eventful day September
3, 1945 was for the Nesquehoning Junior-Senior High School. That was the
day we, a group of seventy-seven remarkable students, honored the high
school with our presence. Our first two years were rather uneventful.
By the time we had become freshmen our numbers
had decreased to seventy-four. We were as proud and as green as most
freshmen are. This was our first important year and we began it by
electing as president George Biank; vice-president, Theodore Drigan;
secretary, Betty Quashnoc; and treasurer, Helen Staivecki. Since we were
a very unusual class we didn't have an annual freshman party. The big
event of this year was our roller-skating party, from which we emerged
with many bruises. Our freshman advisors were: Miss M. Moscoe, Miss E.
Pauff, Mr. M. Bonner and Mr. J. Williams.
With the arrival of our sophomore year we had
become accustomed to the scholastic routine. We began by electing our
class officers. They were: president, George Biank; vice-president,
Theodore Drigan; secretary Louise Sniscak; and treasurer, Russell
Kominitsky. The only event of the year was the Sophomore Party which was
enjoyed by all. This year saw the purchase of hats, upon which our names
were written, and pennants bearing our class seal. The idea originated
with this class. We had as our class advisors for that year Miss E.
Lewis, Mr. G. Roscoe and Mr. P. Steventon. At the closing of this year
we were seventy-two in number.
We finally became upper classmen, having had
our number decreased to sixty-seven. Again we started the year by
electing our class officers, who were: president, George Biank;
vice-president, Joseph Damiano; secretary, Louise Sniscak; and
treasurer, Helen Staivecki. Our class advisors for that year were: Mrs.
S. Koltisko, Miss J. Shutack and Mr. G. Roscoe. These teachers were the
advisors for our senior year also. What a thrill we had before Christmas
when the long hoped for class rings arrived! This year recorded a new
activity, namely the publishing of a school newspaper with many junior
students on the staff. The most enjoyable and unforgettable event of
this year was the Junior Prom, under the direction of Mrs. S. Koltisko.
The preparations for this event were difficult but it was worth while in
the end, because every student agreed that it was a great success.
At last we became seniors! The long-awaited
years were over. We elected as our senior class officers, president,
George Biank; vice-president, George Pauff; secretary, Dorothy Ann
Morris; and treasurer, James Macaluso. We began that year with our first
edition of the school newspaper under the direction of our new advisor,
Mr. G. Thear, a new faculty member. The first hilarious event in the
history of this class was the presentation of a girls minstrel under the
direction of Miss J. Shutack. We held another roller-skating party this
year, and again we emerged with many bruises. We began working on our
yearbook in the beginning of the year with Mr. J. Williams as our
advisor. We welcomed another new faculty member that year, Mr. L. Loch,
as our band master and music instructor. He held a winter band concert,
in which many of the seniors took part. Mr. Loch intends to hold another
band concert in the spring.
Now that graduation is just around the corner,
we realize that we will soon be leaving our Alma Mater, and choosing our
careers. We will always be indebted to our teachers and will use our
education to the best of our ability.
