THE CASTELLAN 1955 



St. Mary's Seminary Junior College 



LaRue Mikesell, Editor Starr Culver, Co-Editor 







COMMENCEMENT 

Not an ending, but a beginning; 
A start of a newer life. 

Not a parting, but a moving forward 
To new goals and greater heights. 

Stand ye not idly waiting 

For some noble work to do. 

You must mount the stairs to Fortune- 
She will never come to you. 

Commencement- -a mission finished: 
Heed life's new manifest call. 

Go forward with unwavering faith; 
And of your self--give all. 




DEDICATION 



- \U 




We proudly dedicate this 1955 CASTEL- 
LAN to Mrs. Louise Truxal Ferguson as a 
symbol of our appreciation and thanks to her 
for being the wonderful person she is, for 
helping us as individuals and for helping the 
school as a whole. 

We will never forget her excellent sense 
of humor, her enthusiasm for all phases of 
school life, and in particular, her willingness 
to sacrifice her spare minutes for our pro- 
jects. 

In her classes we have gained not only an 
understanding of grammar and literature, but 
a wealth of knowledge which we will take with 
us into many future situations. 

We honor her as a learned teacher; but 
most of all, we cherish her as an understand- 
ing friend and thank her warmly for adding so 
much of herself to our individual lives. 




/^^ /f^^^s^x^ 



To the Graduates of 1955, the faculty and stu- 
dents of St. Mary's extend their sincere wishes for 
continued success and happiness. We are grateful 
for your conscientious acceptance of responsible 
leadership here and we look forward to a manifes- 
tation of the results of this leadership in your lives 
in whatever community you may find yourselves. 

May you ever continue to develop to the fullest 
extent your own innate capacities and may you ever 
strive to make your world a better place in which 
to live. Finally, in setting your standards for 
achievement we are confident that you will remem- 
ber always to "seek ye first the Kingdom of God, 
and His righteousness; and all these things shall be 
added unto you."
