Why I Like to Make Good Grades: This is a competitive world, a world that is fast becoming a world of education. Grades are a symbol of education. Without good grades it is difficult to advance after graduation. Without a good education you cannot enter college or get a good job, and you may be swallowed up by an educated society. —James Craft.
I would like to make good grades to prepare myself for my future work in life. Most of colleges will not accept you unless you have a “C” average or above. After graduation from high school, it is too late to worry about what “I could have done.” Jewelene Banks.
People who make the best grades are not always the most conversed on all subjects, however, I do know many intelligent people who show promise of great intellect who never make the best grades. They are smart, but they do not wish to conform. Lana Carter.
We just have one chance at education. We should obtain all we can from this one try. Shirlee Frazier.
Linda Pilkenton, you have tried for three years to get one certain boy. Well the Kat has seen you are wearing his ring now. Could it be Kenneth Hall? Barbara Adams, don’t you know going to parties without your steady, could cause a break-up? Watch out from now on. Jackie Walker, have you finally decided between all your boyfriends? Could Henry Gerald Frazier be the lucky guy? Roger Blair and Sherry Conatser, the Kat sees you all are still a steady couple. We want to congratulate you all and best of luck. Shirley Frazier, we wonder who’s ring you are wearing. Could it be Johnny Johnson? Hey boys, there is a cute little sophomore who started to school here the second semester. Her name is Pat Livingston — get busy. Gary Pace, wise up. There’s a cute little sophomore who has her eyes on you. The Kat is undecided about the so-called marriage of Jerry and Sweila. Are they or aren’t they married? It must be love for Joan and Leroy. Three years they have gone together. Good luck, kids? The Kat wonders what happened to the big romance between Virginia Asher and Lloyd Price. Could they tell us?
