Each month the Sophomore Class will elect two of its members—a boy and a girl—as the two to be honored in this column. The results of the secret voting will appear first in this column. As they are coming out of the local BaptiEt Church, we meet our “Top Sophs” for October, Sandra Gibson and Mickey Morrow. The churoh is where they most often can be found since they are both greatly interest ed in the Lord’s work. The feminine half of our couple is a native Shelbian, having been born there. Sandra attended Number 3 High School, near Earl. When It was time to begin investigating colleges, 'her immediate preference was Gard ner-Webb because, as Sandra tells us. “I knew some foiTner students who recommended the college; also, Mr. Godwin, who is a good friend of the family, influenced me.” Taking course, Sandra’s fa vorite course is Professor Dedmond’s Shakespeare class. If things work out, Sandra will be traveling “Deep in the Heai’t of Texas” to Baylor University next year in order to complete the training necessary for her chosen profession—Minister of Music and Educational Director of a church. Her old tomboy attitude shows through in Sandra’s wish for a family—six sons; no daughters. Each of us has a secret ambition; Sandra’s secret wish was to be a brain surgeon, but she realizes now t’hait she was being called to her pre sent choice. Active in many fields, “Miss Top Soph” is Vice President of the B. S. U., a member of the Y. W. A.’s, Christian Volunteer Band, and the Choir; she is the very capable or ganist for the Sunday School of the Boiling Springs Baptist Church, of which she is an active member. In addition to her many extracurricular activities. Sandra handles the very checking the 300 meal tickets which pass by in the cafeteria three times a da.y. In her spare time, Sandra enjoys cooking and sewing. Making her clothes is one of her hobbies as is reading and horseback riding. She also enjoys football games and is an exuberant G-W Bulldogs fan. When asked some of her favorites in the literary, musical, and enter tainment field, Sandra gave the fol- gence that can be exerted in only one direction. Theoretically, a person who can do things well should suc ceed in any one of several fields of endeavor. But what one would like to do and what God would like for him to do has much to do with suc cess. The Christian concept of talent stewardship is that we, as Chris tians .are servants of God; and in the master-servant relationship, it is always the Master who gives the orders. In obeying those orders there is no failure! When all other considerations are had one might recall that “The quest for God’s will is life’s great est adventure; the finding of God’s will is life’s greatest discovery; and lowing replies: movie, “Gone With lihe Wind,” food, pizza; book. Pil grim’s Prcgress; song, “You’U Never Walk Alone”; and vacation spot, the mountains. Her ideal date should be a wholesome type who likes to have fun in the right way. She likes to go out, but enjoys a “stay-at-home” date, too—listening to Mantovani’s music and eating home-made candy. Sandra feels tlmt the most press ing need here at Gardner-Webb is heightened school spirit and more fellowship between the boys and girls, and, especially, a closer rela tionship with Christian ideals. In answer to the query of how can the adverse conditions in our world be changed, Sandra said, “I believe that Christ has the answer to bet ter world conditions, and that our leaders must come to realize that there is a greater power than they, which can lead us to a better world.” The other half of the October “Top Sophs” is one of the friend liest and most cour.teous students at Gardner-Webb. As a matter of fact, Mickey Morrow attained these two titles — “Friendliest” and “Most Courteous”—in his Senior year at Shelby High School. Shelby is his home, and it was there that Mickey first “set the world on fire”—on May 4, 1939, the date of Mickey’s birth, his home caught on fire! Living so near to Gardner - Webb. Mickey knew enough about this in stitution to agree with his pastor that this was the place for him. Lib eral Arts is the course which “Mr. Top Soph” is pursuing. The subject in which he finds the most enjoy ment is Advanced Bible under Mr. Morrisett because Mickey feels that “I am. in Advanced Bible, discover ing a lot of new truths that I never knew were there.” Although Mickey is somewhat undecided about his plans after graduating from Gaxd- ner-Webb he hopes to continue his study for the Ministry at Carson- Newman College. To put Christ Into the hearts of all with whom he comes into contact is Mickey’s ambition; he hopes, as his future vocation, to be a “plain, everyday preacher.” Mickey has been very active here at Gardner-Webb both last year and this year. He is the President of the Dramatic Society, President of the Circle K Club, LISTEN Chair man, Vice-President of his B. T. U. class, Vice-President of HAPY Dcsrm a writer on The Pilot, and a member of the Radio Club. Last year the Dramatics Award was pre- ^ semted to Mickey in recognition of 'the most noteworthy being his par ticipation in “The Glass Menagerie.” Mickey works in Shelby on Saturday at Hudson’s Department Store and able library staff. For his list of “favorites,” Mickey offered the following: movie, “The Ten Commandments”; food, steak; book. The Count of Monte Cristo; song, “Walk Hand in Hand”; vaca tion spot, mountains; and color. More and better recreational facil ities are needed at Gardner - Webb, Mickey feels. Mickey’s ideal date should have the following requirements: be full ; will : greatest achievement.”
