This books theme was "Over the Rainbow"
| The year 1951 marked the
beginning of our journey over the rainbow as we entered the 7th grade.
We struggled through the first two years. Trying to locate rooms and
offices and getting accustomed to the routine of a high school;
meanwhile our rainbow was beginning to form.
The first bright color of our spectrum was
added in 1953 as we began our Freshman year. Miss Emanual, Mr. Ulshafer,
Mrs. Reichard and Mr. Roscoe were our advisors. To lead us as gold coins
in our pot of gold, we selected W. Ligenza as president, S. Kusko as our
vice president, E. Kenlin as secretary and L. Coniglio as treasurer. We
chose black and gold as our main color spectrum. The yellow carnation as
our class flower, and "Not the End, Just the Beginning" as our
We continued our journey over the rainbow and
soon we were sophomores, this year having as advisors. Mrs. Reichard and
Mr. Ulshafer. We selected S. Kusko as president, R. Macenka as vice
president, R. Kocha as secretary, and L. Tessitore as treasurer. This
year we began to participate in some school events. We purchased and
proudly wore our class hats and emblems, and we also tacked up our
As we went on to our junior year, new colors
were added to our spectrum. Mrs. Reichard and Mr. Mezza were our
advisors. We elected W. Ligenza as president, A. Malaska as vice
president. R. Kocha as secretary, and J. Pancoe as treasurer. This year
we had the fun of selecting our class rings and proudly displaying them
to our friends. We also had the thrill of our first prom. The class
contributed money to cover the expenses and we chose "Over the
Rainbow" as our theme. Our prom was a great success.
Our junior year slipped by quickly and soon we
became seniors; still striving to reach our pot of gold at the end of
the rainbow. Mrs. Reichard and Mr. Mezza, once again, were our advisors.
We selected R. Tessitore as president, S. Kusko as vice president, B.
Hochmiller as secretary, and L. Tessitore as treasurer. This year we
participated in many activities. We presented plays and began to work on
our newspaper and yearbook staffs, with the help of our advisors.
As graduation approaches some greet it sadly,
others happily. We have now reached the peak of our rainbow, most of us
have decided on our careers and each will continue on his way, until he
reached his pot of gold. We will never forget our school days because
they hold many happy memories. We will always be indebted to our
teachers who have helped us to reach the first goal of our lives.
