Faculty Frolics proves successful

The teacher program “Faculty Frolics” had three successful performances, totaling the sum of $1126.00 for the purchase of new stage curtains and drapes to darken the auditorium windows. Every teacher of the grade school and high school faculty took part and the success is measured in the money, the praise of all who saw the frolics, and the fun the teachers had in taking part. The black curtains with fringe will be installed this summer by the Knoxville Scenic Studios.

School song composed

At last a school song, both words and music were composed by Mr. Bob Gatton and Rocky Davis.

Hail, Whitesburg High School

Praise to thy name

On the rolling campus

We will work for thy fame.

Glory and honor

We will bring to thee

Thy name within our hearts

Ever hallowed be.

Whitesburg we shall miss you

Through the coming years

Thoughts of thee within our hearts

Shall e’re be dear

Leading and guiding

Youth o’er all the land

Our Alma Mater!

Loyal, True and Grand.
