Mary Bea Brunini will be glad to learn that Tessie never repeats anything she asks her not to.
Pat Murphy is just practically growling at a boy, that a few months ago she idolized. (G.M.!)
Mildred Quarles' dancing is improving well. She's got a couple of solos in her next revue.
There's a certain some one Cecelia Varner is very very much interested in. The rest of us haven't met him yet. (Vernot R.)
I hear An Hardin is having a little trouble in getting her big brother to write her. (Looks as if a certain Junior isn't though.
A few weeks ago Agnes B. and I went out for the same boy. The results....neither of us got him. (Jon H.)
Pam M's heart goes hopping about every time she lays her eye on a certain Freshman boy. Hint - There's a new song with his name in the title. "......, My Love."
Carolyn D., Jane C., Jackie A. seemed to have hitched a few Carr Central Hi boys, the last I heard. Fred C., Buck S., and Charles G.
We are not without talent in our class, and Ann Freutel is no exception. Her voice improves everyday.
Our dear Sister Ethelbert is just about the same as usual, a mixture of trying real hard to teach us, and not succeeding!!!
That's about all from my big corner of the window. See ya!!! (Written by Doris Hoseman) (Taken from 1956 Maryon)

Vera Marshall Brown giving our Class of 1959 Testimonial.
~Priest, Faculty and Students - The Class of 1959 are appreciative for the invitation to help celebrate the Mass and Homecoming Festivities with you. We will treasure all our lifetime the values instilled in our Class of 1959 by the Sisters of Mercy and the Brothers of the Sacred Heart. We're witnesses to the truth of what we learned back then: that you never have to choose between academic enrichment and moral or spiritual development. From our entire class there is evidence of both our academic and spiritual development in our professions and in our family life. We have doctors, nurses, medical technologist, lawyers, accountants, business owners, computer specialist, real estate agents, government workers, secretaries, and, yes, deer hunters. And we were taught to serve with love. Our retired classmates volunteer - - tutoring, sewing, building houses, and visiting the ill and home bound. Many are family people, parents, and grandparents who pass on not only respect for learning but the spiritual values instilled in us. Our grandchildren uphold those same values. Many of us serve our own churches; some as lectors and commentators, and Eucharistic Ministers. Some sing in Church choirs.
Our class is unique for having been together all our high-school years, and we still laugh together, cry together, play together, and pray together. We "girls" are in the same sorority, and our classmates who do not live in Vicksburg still keep in touch with many of us, who pass along the news.
Some of our class were taught by the Sisters and Brothers even past graduation from high-school. I had the distinction of being in a Catholic environment for 16 years - - 12 years at St. Francis Xavier, then in Nurses' Training at Mercy Hospital School of Nursing. When I furthered my training in New Orleans, I learned with the Daughters of Charity at DePaul's Psychiatric Hospital.
So, through real life experience, we learned something more important than how statistics show Catholic education to be effective and rewarding. We learned a moral and spiritual formation which can only happen in an academic environment shaped by Faith. Receiving a Catholic education gives us, and you, freedom to talk about God and about human destiny. We were taught the truth about what is ultimately important. And we don't forget it easily.
We received superior academic foundation in a safe surrounding where qualified, dedicated teachers taught and modeled moral and spiritual values, like respect for life, compassion, and the essential basis of everything - - a close relationship with Christ. ~
Priest altogether before Mass ended.
After Mass and before the reception we had our picture taken by George Brown, Vera's husband.

On the night of the Senior Play, Jackie Mel. stopped traffic in her white suit, with light blue accessories. A classmate of hers, Myrtle, had on a red and blue plaid dress which stood out in the crowd. Pam G. looked like a doll in her aqua dress!! Setting off her outfit was a rhinestone band around her pony tail!!! Judy H. looked quite stylish in her pink plaid sheath dress! Judy was sporting her new glasses that night also!!! Francis S. had on a darling blue dress for the occasion!! This had people turning around to look twice! Walking not too far behind her was another Frances. This cute Sophomore was sporting an adorable pink cotten dress with matching accessories.
On the night of the Junior-Senior Banquet, Mary C. looked simply adorable in a new blue dress with a white and blue embroidered top to match. Shirley F. patronized the Flashes, with little purple shoes and an orchid setting off her flowered dress of yellow. Josephine Nohra stole the show when she walked up in her brown lace covered taffeta dress to read her inheritance. Our toast mistress for the night, Mae Farish, looked like a fresh daisy in the yellow cotten dress she wore. Rose S. was very proud of the real cute brown sheath dress with the big white collar. Rose created the creation herself!! Dooley Bell appeared in a full skirted brown and white checked dress!!!
Well, I could continue for 9 or 10 more pages about all of the precious clothes the girls have, been wearing this season, but a lack of space prevents it. See ya next fall!!!!!! (Taken from the May 1956 Maryon)

Even though the team didn't reach to the finals of the District Tournament in Jackson, on May 3, they did an excellent job for their first year. Maybe next year they will be as good as "Little Moe"!!!! The team would like to give our thanks to the person who organized the team, Joyce Jamison. What she has done for us during the past year cannot fully be explained in words. Here's hoping that next years coach will measure up to this years. So thanks.........

Several boys made speeches on what qualities and virtues they expected in a girl. Among those making speeches were Teddy Marshall, Ray Terry, Perry Hale, and Jesse Jones. The girls were not left out as we had several comments as to what qualities and virtues we expect in a good Christian boy. Among the girls to speak were Delia Durst, Zita Long, and Mary Campbell.
All of these meetings prove to be a big help and we want to thank Brother Berchman for his co-operation and guidance.
