Ninth Grade History
Back in 1924 our jolly class
entered V.H.S. as Freshmen. My how big we felt! We then had
aspirations of becoming some of the world's most noted people. But,
alas, when Algebra and Latin were encountered, we discovered that it would
take much energy and great concentration to fulfill these dreams.
However, we are now the Sophomore class and next year
we will be Juniors. Oh, how these years pass by.
At the beginning of our Freshmen year we were slightly
green. The unaccustomed surroundings and the razzing of the
Sophomores and Juniors caused us a great deal of confusion, but in spite
of that we were still determined and at the end of the first year in high
school we had ten names on the Honor Roll. We took part in
athletics, as football, basketball, and baseball.
We also took part in different literary contests, as music,
reading, and ready writing contests, and though we won no great honors we
were proud of ourselves for the effort.
At the beginning of our Sophomore year we had the
pleasure of razzing the Freshmen ourselves, and we enjoyed this for a
while but soon settled down to real business and now we are justly proud
of our classmates. We are represented in school activities in
football, basketball and track. We also feel that we have
accomplished much intellectually.
