As reported 44 years ago in the pages of The Columbia News, Thursday, March 2, 1961:
John Henry Parton, son of Mr. and Mrs. W.R. Parton, has been chosen the 1961 STAR student from Evans High School, according to Principal C.R. Davis.
Mrs. Julian H. Cleveland, mathematics teacher at Evans, was honored as STAR teacher. Cleveland was selected by Parton as the teacher who has helped him most in scholastic achievement.
Parton was selected because of his high score on the December College Board Scholastic Aptitude Test. After high school graduation, he plans to attend the Air Force Academy in Warm Springs, Colo.
Basketball buses reserved
Harlem Principal W.H. Adams has announced that two buses have been reserved for students and faculty members who wish to attend the State Class C basketball tournament in Macon.
The fare will be $2.50 per person each trip. The principal says if there is room left after the students and faculty have taken seats, the public may go by this means of transportation.
Those traveling on the bus will be under the jurisdiction of the school and will be expected to follow the wishes of the school personnel.
Heart drive held
On Feb. 26, 1961, young girls assisted their leaders in the Heart Fund Drive, under the direction of Mrs. Al Nagy, chairman, Mrs. Otis Huffman and Mrs. Morsby Elmore.
When the drive was concluded, the workers came to the Baptist church for the "count," which amounted to $101.07, with more promised.
