is upon youl
By EOMKLDA SHEPFARD
Dear People of MCHS:
One short year ago I entered
Morehead City High. 1 can remem
ber my first school day here as
plainly as if it were only yester
day, and yet it seems as if I have
always attended classes in this fa
miliar red brick building. Never
in the whole scope of my short ex
istence have I met such friendly
people as I have at our school.
There is a general feeling of
friendliness here which is so com
pletely predominantly throughout
the school that the very walls seem
to emote it.
I have found the students to be
among the nicest I have ever
known. They are bound together in
a comradeship which I have found
unique among students and they
do not exclude newcomers to the
school from this comradeship. They
merely inc'ude you as one of them
with as much effort as it would
take to blink your eyes.
From the moment I entered
Morehead High I couldn't feel left
out ? they wouldn't let me. There
is no "being-new" sensation here
at all ? in five minutes you feel
as if you'd always been a More
head High student.
I have found the students to be
clean-cut, bright individuals who
are good sports, bctter-than-aver
ige scholars, good citizens, good
friends ? I could go on all day,
but I think you've got the idea.
They work and play together as a
unit ? a strong one at that. They
are people to be proud of; and II
there is any juvenile delinquency
problem here, I certainly have yet
to see it.
If the young people of our whole
lation were as well-rounded as the
students at our school, reform
schools would soon be vacated.
I have found an unmeasurable
amount of delight in associating
with the students of Morehead High
and I want you to know I'll never
forget my year here. It will always
remain in my memory as one of
my best experiences.
I should also like to add a short
word about our teachers before I
close. I shall remember our teach
ers with only fondness. They have
not really seemed like teachers to
me ? they have been good friends,
people whom I have genuinely liked
and admired, and whom I should
like to keep in contact with for the
rest of my life. They have subtly
pounded education into my weak
brain (a note from the typist ?
HA!) to the point that half the
time I don't realize I'm learning at
all, but feel that I am merely sit
ting in the classroom listening to
a friend who has something inter
esting to say.
Our teachers are people who you
like to know are your neighbors
and who, you know, have your best
interests at heart. They are the
nicest group of teachers anyone
could find anywhere ? and I mean
If my superlatives have seemed
lavish, I shall apologize but I can't
seem to tell you about my impres
sion of Morehead High in any other
way. I want to thank you all for a
wonderful, wonderful year.
Have a good summer,
Mr. Denim, the safety advisor for
Cherry Point, visited Morehead
High School last Friday, May 9.
Mr. Denim spoke to the student
body about traffic accidents and
their causes. He showed a movie
produced by the Suicide Club of
The movie contained numerous
pictures of highway accidents
showing mangled human bodies.
The purpose of the movie was to
impress upon the minds of young
people what can happen as the re
sult of careless driving. The movie
encouraged defensive driving as an
all time procedure.
The candidates for the new offi
cers of the Student Council held
the attention of the students of
Morehead High School with unique

in assembly. Contrary to usual
politicians, the speeches were short
and sweet with no mud-slinging.

contest when choosing between him

Lynch. The runner-up for presi
dent would receive the office of
vice-president. The candidates for

wick and Joyce Ann Styron. John
Phillips and Suzanne Beck were
