HIGH LIFE Senior Volnme LVn Number 14 GRUMSLEY senior high school, Greensboro, N.C. 27410 Mr, Gamer, who will leave Grlmsley this year to stndy law at Carolina, will be missed by all ol his students. In fact, he win never be forgotten. GARNER RETURNS TO ALAAA AAATER After four years of teaching here at Grimsley, Mr. Gamer is leaving to go to the Law and Business School at Carolina. The main reason Mr. Gamer is leav ing is because he feels he is not paid well enough. Graduation Plans Include Beach Trip As the 78 school year comes to a close, more and more seniors and juniors find themselves mak ing after-graduation plans for the annual June beach trip to Ocean Drive, South Carolina. The most common sight during the day at O.D. Is the crowds of people stretched out along the beach absorbing rays from the sun. Some people prefer throwing frisbee up and down the beach, while still others can be found elsewhere, such as the people who seek excitement. They can usually be found at the miniature golf courses playing Jungle Golf, or even more adventurous people are found at the water bogging places. For those who like to take it easy on their beach trip, there is- always the common sight of people sitting in rocking chairs along Ocean Boulevard watching the cars ride by, and usually making conversation with each carload of beach-bound people. The night time favorites are dancing, amusement parks, and, of course, long walks along the beach. The Spanish Galleon is a well-known disco, where crowds of young people gather at night. Mr. Gamer will attend four years at the school and hopes to obtain a Masters in Business Administration and a Juris Doc- trate. Feeling very strongly that he does not get enough pay, Mr. Garner said “I regret man tea chers are not paid enough to sustain a family.” By this he means the incremenets he has received in his salary in the last four years have not kept up with the inflation rate in the U.S. If Mr. Gamer returns to Greensboro he would like to practice law. Of much importance to him, Mr. Gamer would like to say that the most enjoyable part of his teaching career has been his association with the students of Grimsley. All of the members of the High Life staff would like to wish Mr. Gamer good luck and a lot of success. Wednesday, June 7, 197*’ .
