Silver Mount Baptist Church
of Pineville. N.C. held its
Annual Vacation Bible School
July 26 through July 30 with
classes each night from 7 until
9 p.m.
Attendance each night ave
raged approximately 200 per
sons, according to Directress
Betty Potts, who added that
’‘the group was divided into
six classes which covered all
age groups ranging from be
ginners through adults."
Directress Potts continued,
‘‘This outstanding week of
learning and fellowship was
organized and executed by a
most dynamic team of work
ers and teachers headed by
Rev. William Lee, Jr., pastor,
and Deacon R. L. Holloway,
dean."
The various class studies
were centered around the Va
cation Bible School theme of
“The Life and Teachings of
Jesus" and all the teachers
used a variety of materials,
teaching aids, and personal
creativity to make the session
one of "total spiritual, physi
cal and mental enrichment of
the individual, church, and
community,” said Mrs. Potts.
Each night’s closing_session
featured group singing and
. The Bible Pledge.
Teachers for this year’s Va
cation Bible School were: Ru

Louise Stinson, Hattie Ladson,
Rita Franklin, Martha Hollo
way, Curley Hall, Arleen Di
xon, Leitha Adams, Sarah
White Nominated
For American
Bravery Medal
Continued from Page 1
and was nominated for the
heroism award from the Car
negie Foundation.
The criteria for the Young
American Medal for Bravery
requires that the nominee ex
hibit “exceptional courage, at
tended by extraordinary act
ion, regardless of his or her
own personal safety, in and
effort to save or in saving the
life of any person or persons in
actual imminent danger."
Governor Holshouser said in
a letter to Clarence Kelley,
chairman of the Young Ameri
can Medals Committee, that
Lyndon White obviously meets
these criteria. With total dis
regard for his own safety, he
rescued three people from a
flooded area. He sacrificed his
own life in an effort to save
others."
The Young American Me
dals program was established
by Congress in 1950 to recog
nize outstanding acts of cou
rage and service by American
youths under age 19. Since
that time, 35 medals have
been awarded for bravery and
20 for service.
There were three awards for
bravery and two for dedicated
service presented for calendar
year 1974. Nominations for the
awards must come from the
Nation's Governors. The a
ward winners for 1975 will be
announced by the Justice De
partment next year.
