THE CASTELLAN 1955
St. Mary's Seminary Junior College
LaRue Mikesell, Editor Starr Culver, Co-Editor
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.
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-
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.
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."
