I'll Always Remember
By Evelyn Morris
How quickly time flies! It seems such
a short while since September, 1951, when
I first came to Mcntreat as a Freshman.
Yet, how much has happened since then
and is happening now during these busy
months of a wonderful Junior year! These
are memories that will last forever.
I can still see so clearly the blue and
gold streamers hanging from the “welcome
Freshmen” sign that was on the gate that
fateful day of arrival. I can just as surely
feel the warm clasp of Miss Wilson’s hand
as she led me into her office. From that
moment on I felt at home, and I again
thanked God for bringing me to this Mon
treat of Vifhich I had heard so long.
Registration, orientation, Chapel ser
vices, parties, and classes soon followed
and each was a new experience. One of
the greatest joys in those first few months
was the forming of a friendship with
every Montreater. I even discovered
among them two other West Virginians!
There were special things too, such as
the time when the Student Body gave
Heide her ticket to go home for Christ
mas, her first visit with her family in two
years. Also at Christmas time, the College
Choir had the privilege of joining a 500
voice Asheville Choir to sing The
Messiah. I’ll always remember!
Spring in Montreat brought May Day
and the realization that the year was
nearly over. It couldn’t be! Commence
ment came all too soon and left some
treasured memories, but at the same time
took away the Seniors, twelve girls that
we knew Montreat couldn’t do without.
