Grandville High School
Juniors of the 1919 School Year

The Junior Class was organized at the beginning of the first semester of this school year, 1918-1919, with a membership of sixteen. The following officers were elected for the year:

President – Robert Jones

Vice-President – Freda Eikelberg

Secretary – Edna Reister

Treasurer – Floyd Alward

Not long ago after the school term started Lloyd Ohler, one of our classmates, thinking French more than he could master, stopped attending school much to the dismay of his may school friends. Soon after this we welcomed Wayne Shoemaker into our class as an honorable member.

Thanksgiving Eve marks the event of the first Class Party. It was given in the Kindergarten Room and was called a "Hard Time Social". It proved a big success under the supervision of Viola Webb, who much to the delight of those present, served hard cider and doughnuts for refreshments.

After this party, Floyd Alward, finding the duties of treasurer more than he was able to take care of, resigned, and Edna Reister was appointed Secretary and Treasurer for the rest of the year.
