Cobb Memorial Junior-Senior (1925)

The Bee (Danville, Virginia) 8 April 1925 (Page 2)
Junior-Senior Banquet

Saturday evening, April 4th, a banquet was given by the undergraduates of Cobb Memorial school to the members of the senior class. Many interesting papers were read and toasts were given during the progress of the banquet. John White read the class history, and the call will was read by Walter Williamson. Louise Daniel, as class prophet, and Mabel Yarbrough, as class poet, read delightfully, and the class wishes by Helen Gatewood were clever and entertaining. A roast to the teachers, by Glen Williamson, to the truck drivers by John R. Daniel and to the seniors by Tom Neal, Jr., preceded the presentation of gifts to the seniors by Mary Neighbors. "Cobb School In Future," was read by Elizabeth Gatewood. Miss Della Powell was toast mistress of the evening.
