students. She was salutatorian when she graduated from

Davis, our tallest, but one of the youngest, senior boys, came here from
Hico in 28. Sammie, starting in the second grade, was very soon sent to

good in them.

students. Most times high school girls and boys are pupils, but Essie Mae
is a real student. She is a hard worker, dependable and always thoughtful
of her fellow students. We foresee for Essie Mae a very bright future.
