Members of the faculty:
Curtis Reed, graduate of the University of Kentucky. Mr. Reed has been the principal of Fleming High School since its origin in 1928. His work here has been a great success.

Last Will and Testament
We, the members of the Class of 1938 of the Fleming High School, having full possession of our mental faculties, believing ourselves to be fully capable of legally transacting this important matter, and conscious of the fact that the time of our separation is at hand, do hereby draw up our last will and testament and bequeath our treasures as follows:
Article I. To those who have made it possible for Fleming High School to be what it is, the principal and the faculty, we owe a debt which is greater than we shall ever be able to liquidate, so we unanimously pledge our untiring labor and our ceaseless loyalty to them with their expression of our sincere appreciation of their work.
Article II. Also, to the long-suffering members of the faculty, who have struggled so faithfully with us in the past, and to whom we owe our everlasting debt of gratitude, we do bequeath many years of peace and quiet after we have departed henceforth and forever.
Article III. To the juniors we donate our ability to develop physically, mentally and morally, and to acquire charm, polish, and prestige so characteristic of the senior class of 1938.
Article IV. The following personal bequests are made:
Muriel Panter bestows upon Verna Chavis her privilege of standing and showing her individuality in Mr. Enlow’s classes.
Norman Hudgins leaves his quiet and understanding manner to Sam Alfano.
Frank Vertuca leaves his ability to break feminine hearts to Lloyd McMillan.
Kermit Beverly wills his artistic ability to Robert Preston.
Bill Addington and John Bryant leave their ability to shoot goals to Ted Pass and Harry Venters.
Jean Catron bestows her gift of gab upon Draxie Gooch and Ina Combs to be divided equally between them without any contentions upon their part.
Nora Vanover bequeaths her popularity and long line of suitors to Eddyth Wright.
Gladys Stephens wills her wizard fingers, from which music drops like murmuring waters, to Kathleen Reed.
Robert Hart, Jr. leaves to anybody who may need it, his gift of making frequent and long drawn-out talks in the classroom.
Roberta Hale leaves her supply of magic mud, which is responsible for her flowerlike complexion, to Irene Hawley.
Gussie Land leaves a list of reducing exercises to Willie Abdoo.
Glennville Sexton leaves his poetic genius to Ottis Anderson. He also leaves his candid camera to Sam Vertuca.
