Class of 1959

We, the Class of 1959, celebrated our 50th class reunion on April 24 and 25, 2009. This blog is about sharing memories of our class reunions and a long ago life at our Alma Mater's, S.F.X.A. and S.A.H.S. Good memories of days gone by but not forgotten! A gift to my classmates. ~Marian Love Phillips ~

Campus Spotlight ~ Marlene

~Marlene Wilson~

Anyone who walks the halls of S.F.X.A. as often as I do could not miss the happy face of one particular Freshman. This girl is Catherine Marlene Wilson, who along with many other Freshmen has made many friends among the upper class men.

Marlene began her long journey through life on a beautiful, autumn day in September during the year of 1941. Beginning her school career at Jett Vocational Elementary School, Marlene remained there for two years. From the third grade up to the present time, Marlene has been attending St. Francis Xavier. Marlene owes her excellent English and expression to our beloved Sister Mary Vincent, who educated her in this art from the third to the seventh grades. She has also been a music student for the past five and one half years.

During the Tornado, Marlene received an honor which I am sure she can always be proud. At this time she received a Red Cross Badge.

Like Kay Stewart (soon to be spotlighted) her likes are many while her peeves are few. Listed under the major likes are dill pickles, oranges, dancing, and parties. Her favorite subject is Algebra. Because Marlene is so active herself, she dislikes people who are unenthusiastic and killjoys.

Marlene's main ambition is to attend college and finally become a pediatrician. She also announced further ambitions but due to present conditions, these I cannot print.

Outstanding among her school activities is basketball but she is also a member of the Glee Club and Choir. (Taken from the 1956 Maryon)
