Auditorium Formally Opened
In 1932; Curtains Given
By Class of '33
In January 1927, classes were
held in the present Gojdsbora High
School building for the first time.
Since that time quite a number of
improvements have been made.
Due to the lack of funds when
the building was constructed, the
auditorium was not completely
finished until 1937.
In 1932, the walls were plastered,
stage completed, seats put in, and
the auditorium partially lighted.
During their Junior year, the
class of ’33 took the major part of
their funds from their Junior play
and presented as their class gift,
the^ red velvet curtains which still
hang in the auditorium. These cur
tains were made by the girls in the
sowing department under the di
rection of Miss Koch.
New, in 1937,_ the tenth anniver
sary year, the Goldsboro Board of
Trustee has given a $600 system of
practical lighting for use in the
The system includes six 1,000
watt bulbs, three 300 watt bulbs,
six chandeliers, and nine shades.
During the coming summer 7
row rooms will be added, following
up the original plan, and will be
ready for ocupancy at the begin
ning of school next year.
The original plan was to extend
the building at both east and west
wings and then connect them. This
would make the heating plant be
inside of the enclosure.
The manual training, printing,
English, science, mechanical draw
ing, commercial, and history stud
ents will use the new rooms.
