Women Outnumber Men
By Nine-Three Count
This year at Senior twelve new
teachers have replaced or supple
mented part of last year’s staff.
They come from all parts of the
country and have had some
amount of previous work teaching
in other schools.
Mr. Manzi, who has taught for
two years in Burlington, is doub
ling as a history teacher and line
coach of the football team. He is
a veteran of World War II and
has served in Europe. Football
and education are his primary
interests. He attended Elon Col
lege and is now working for his
master’s degree there.
Another new arrival is Mrs.
Gerry Burch. She graduated from
Woman’s College in Greensboro
and is now teaching business,
English, and typing at G.H.S. Her
special interests are bridge, golf,
and music.
The Misses Abernethy and Bost
(Paula and Cathy if you’re really
good friends) are two of the new
teachers who have joined the staff
this year. Miss Abernethy, who
teaches English and journalism,
graduated from Westhampton Col
lege in Richmond, Virginia; and,
after a year of graduate work at
the University of North Carolina,
she spent a vigorous two months
teaching at Appalachian High
School in Boone. She is very much
impressed with our school, and
most of all, with the friendliness
of the students and faculty.
Bost from Wilmington
Miss Bost, who graduated from
Appalachian State Teacher’s Col
lege in Boone, spent a year down
in Wilmington and came to G.H.S.
this Fall. Although her home is
in Kannapolis, she likes Greens
boro very much. She is greatly
pleased with the library and en
joys her position as assistant
librarian.
Garrett from Greensboro
Mrs. Garrett, a new English
teacher, is a native of Greensboro
and a graduate of Woman’s Col
lege and the University of North
Carolina. She taught in Rocking
ham last year and has taken a
place on Senior’s faculty. When
asked if she had a comment for
this article, she said that she
would like to put in a "plug” for
the sophomores, who, in her
opinion, have done a wonderful
job in acquainting themselves
with Senior’s customs.
Woman’s College Graduates
Miss Ann Hall, who is taking
Mr. Lutrell’s chemistry duties over
this year, hails from Charlotte,
North Carolina. She graduated
from Woman’s College and taught
at Curry for one semester. Gen
erally interested in sports, she is
also interested in student govern
ment. She compliments the band,
and appreciates the friendliness
shown her.
Another graduate of Women’s
College, Miss Penelope Bogart,
has had teaching experience in
Robersonville, a town in the east
ern part of the state. She is in
terested in photography, but her
favorite pastime is water sports,
mainly because her home is located
on a river in Washington, N. C.
Scott Attended Vassar

also a native of Greensboro, is
Miss Scott. She attended Vassar
College in Poughkeepsie, New
