Buses reserved for basketball trip
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 states that if there is room left after the students and faculty have taken seats, the public may go by this means of transportation as long as seats remain.
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.
The ribbon marshals have been chosen for the upcoming horse show at Evans High School in March. Those selected, with the colors they are to wear, are Sylvia Looper, wearing a pink evening gown; Edity Jean Lewis in blue; Barbara Frost in white; Cynthia Hensley in red and Coleen McGill wearing yellow. These girls are seniors at Evans High School.
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 College Board Scholastic Aptitude Test. After high school graduation, he plans to attend the Air Force Academy in Warm Springs, Colo.
