The theme for this book was "Jewel Box"
| We the class of "56"
entered N.H.S., the "Jewel Box", in September 1950 with nearly
65 members in our class. Our first two years were rather uneventful.
By the time we became freshmen in 1952, we lost
some of our shyness and began our first important year by electing
Robert Marouchoc as our president, Thomas York as vice president,
Barbara Bales as secretary, and Thomas Lakata as treasurer. During this
year we selected our class colors which are scarlet and silver; our
class flower, the red rose; and our class motto, Now or Never. Our class
advisors for our freshman year were: Miss Mary Moscoe, Miss Julia
Shutak, and Mr. John D. Williams.
With the arrival of our sophomore year, we
became familiar with the scholastic routine and the class members
actively participated in school events. We began our second year in high
school by electing Robert Marouchoc as president, Peter Slivka as vice
president, Catherine Santore as secretary and Thomas Lakata as
treasurer. Our advisors were: Miss Mary Moscoe, Miss Julia Shutack, and
Mr. Percy Steventon. As sophomores we purchased our class hats and
emblems which we were very proud to wear.
After succeeding in our sophomore year and
having had our number decreased to 57, we happily started our junior
year by electing William Fauzio as our president, Frank Lapos as vice
president, Dolores Biank as secretary and Virginia McGinley as
treasurer. This was the year in which our long awaited class rings
arrived and were proudly displayed. With the help of our class advisors,
Miss Mary Moscoe, Miss Julia Shutack and Mr. George Roscoe we chose the
"Zodiac Club" as our theme for our unforgettable event the
"Junior Prom." Because of lack of funds, the class contributed
money to cover the expenses in preparing for the "Junior
Prom." It was worth while because our Prom turned out to be a great
At last we became seniors. As usual we began
the year electing our class officers. We elected as president, Robert
Marouchoc, vice president Frank Lapos, secretary, Virginia McGinley, and
treasurer, Thomas Lakata. We planned for another successful year with
our junior advisors. The students had the pleasure of publishing their
first edition of the school newspaper and beginning work on their
yearbook. The class willingly took part in presenting plays and have
decided to change our motto, "Now or Never," choosing
"Without Faith There is Failure."
Now that graduation is soon upon us, we will be
leaving our "Jewel Box" and will be choosing our careers.
Although some students are glad and others sad, we will always treasure
the memories of our school days and remember that they were the happiest
days of our lives. We will forever be indebted to our advisors ant
teachers for helping us to plan for our future years.
