~ Kay Stewart ~
Barbara Kay Stewart was born in San Diego, California, on February 12, 1940. After seven months residence, she and her family moved to Vicksburg where they have remained ever since. At the age of six, Kay started school at dear ole St. Francis and for the past 10 years has made it her Alma Mater. Kay always active in school affairs, shows her outstanding leadership by the many offices she has held during her years at school. In the fifth and sixth grades, she held the office of class secretary. In the eighth grade Kay was president of her class and rated second in the coveted American Legion Award. When asked what honor she received in her Freshman year, Kay announced proudly that being a Freshman in high school had been the only honor she had received and in her opinion, the best so far. In the tenth grade Kay was elected Cheerleader by the Student Body. She also held the office of Class Representative this year. During the glorious season of Homecoming, Kay was muchly honored and thrilled at being Football Sponsor.
Kay likes are many and far between. These consist of sweet pickles, grapes, dancing, reading and all sports. Her most interesting subjects are History and Mathematics. Kay's pet peeves are few but those which she does have are most emphatic. What she first and foremost hates is grippe people. Under this heading comes these girls who show no class or school spirit whatsoever. I think we can all agree with Kay on these two points.
Among Kay's activities are Choir, Glee Club, Basketball and Tennis Teams, Sodality, and Sophomore and Junior Maryon reporter. (Taken from 1956 Maryon)
