The V oice VOLUME 16, No, 4 FAYETTEVILLE STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE, FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA MAY, 1963 I *111 86th ANNIVERSARY PARTICIPANTS — Dean Charles E. Morton, President Rudolph Jones, Dr. Asa T. Spaulding (Founders’ Day Speak er), President-Emeritus J. W. Seabrook. Observance Of Teaching Career Month In observance of “Teaching Ca reer Month,” the J. W. Seabrook Chapter of the Student National Education Association sponsored a program which brought one hun dred and fifty-four high school stu dents to the campus. These stu dents were from high schools in the Southeastern section of this state. This program was conducted in two sessions, the first of which was held in the morning and a sec ond during the afternoon. . The opening session involved a detailed discussion by Dr. H. M. Eldridge concerning the availabui- ty of scholarships and loans. This was followed by a descriptiye and elaborate account of the curriculum opportunities open to these stu dents. Dean J. C. Jones Proceeded to inform the visitors of the quali fied personnel and increasing changes which would make Fay etteville State a wide selection. Mr. Jack Sharpe, a junior and an elementary education major show ed films depicting many interesting areas of the campus and discussed the various functions carried on in these areas. This session was con cluded with a question and answer period in which the students sought to weigh the advantages presented to them. During the afternoon Dr. Lafay ette Parker, president of the North Carolina Teachers Association, ad dressed the College community on the significance of Teaching Ca reer Month. Dr. Parker discussed several fallacies, such as the idea that “those who can, do; those who can’t, teach.” He pointed out that though such might be true in some instances, this is not invariably the case among teachers. Dr. Parker also indicated that greater demands will be made of the teacher in the future and that this might become a sweeping trend. In pursuing his thesis he showed how the idea of moderation in education might be taken out of porportion. He ex patiated on the mythical notion of how machines will eventually re place classroom teachers. This quaint analysis revealed that machines would even administer disciphne and summon parents to school to discuss recalcitrant pu pils. At this juncture Dr. Parker reverted to a somewhat more sob ering and awakening vein of thought which led to the close of his excellent discussion. Calletha Matthews Stanley Johnson Dean J. C.

SUMMER SESSION Nine Weeks June 10-August 9 Jessica Henderson Top FSTC Student A serious and energetic cq^d who has the distinction of being the top student of more than one thou sand FSTC’ers is Jessica Hender son, a junior, majoring in history. Jessica is a member of the 1960 graduating class of McKinley High School, Honolulu, Hawaii. While in high school she served as School Chairman of the Pacific and Asian Affairs Council, co-chairman of the Island-wide Speech Tourna ment, and was a member of Fu ture Teachers Association, Inter school Christian Fellowship, and the Debating Club. She transferred to FSTC from the University of the Philippines where she wa^co-chairman of the Social Committee. Here at FSTC Jessica is presi dent of the Day Students Organ ization, vice-president of Future Teachers Association, and member of Student NEA, Westminster Fel lowship and the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. Among the honors this modest young lady has garnered while pursuing her studies are McKinley High School Certificate of Excel lence in Speech, University of Phil ippines Certificate of Merit (scho lastic achievements), and FSTC Dean’s List each semester since entering here. Her community activities include work as a Sunday School teacher at the College Heights Presby terian Church. Being one of three daughters of a member of the Armed Forces and his wife — Sgt. and Mrs. James E. Henderson — Jessica has found her travels to be far reaching. She has found herself in Bermuda, Hawaii, the Philippines, as well as in various parts of these United States. Her sisters are Mrs. Geraldine White at Dover Air Force Base, Dover, Delaware; and Jennifer Henderson, a third grader at No. 12 Elementary School here in Fayetteville. Auto Mechanics Honor Student The only other student to main tain a straight “A” average the first semester of this school term is Lonnie C. Ewing, Jr., first-year Auto Mechanics student. Ewing is a Fayettevillian who was graduated from the E. E. Smith High School here in the city. While in high school he was active in several organizations. Among these was the school band. We hear that he was voted “Most Out standing Member of the Band” his senior year. He was also a member of the Library Club. His father has one of the leading local barber shops — located in downtown Fayetteville. This stu dent is following the pattern of tradition, for his mother is an alumna of Fayetteville State, and is pictured elsewhere in this issue of the VOICE as an active member of the FSTC Alumni Association. — Interviewers of “A” Students, Robert Daniels
