Our first big event of our last year in H. A. was the Senior Dance. This proved to be a successful fall dance with many of our classmates attending.
"The Eager Miss Beaver," our Senior Play, was also a great success and one of the best ever put on at H. A., thanks to the supervising of Mrs. Dennett and Mr. Bushold. We spent the whole year excitedly discussing the class trip. There is no need to tell of the fun we had.
At last graduation, which until now we have eagerly awaited, has arrived. We have received our diplomas and now we, the Class of '53, bid farewell to H. A.
Although many of us have spent much time in detention halls, we have really enjoyed these four years.
