By Paula Winstead
This new feature, “Top Sophs,”
we hope to make one of the focal
points of The Pilot this year. 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

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
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.”
