HARPETH HALL SCHOOL
The staff would like to thank Mrs. Pennington, Mrs. Warterfield,
Susan Thornton, and Howard Harris for the use of their pictures in
HARPETH HALL SCHOOL
Ln-iMK^ SSSSS- 1
For the dedication of this, our twenty-fifth yearbook, we think it appropriate to turn back to our first
yearbook, Milestones of 1952, and to write as they did:
"To the Founders of this school, to the Board of Trustees, to the devoted principal, to the capable
faculty, and to the many friends— to all who have made it possible for Harpeth Hall to have existence and
growth, we express our sincere gratitude by dedicating to them this 1976 Milestones. "
MARGARET INGRAM COBLE
Carefree and unbound, the world was hers—
only the sky to keep her spirit
from flowing over.
Every day, a challenge to know,
learn, and to love more of life
Kept her minutes filled with hope-
to catch the reason why,
to make lier sad friend smile.
Oftentimes alone and unsure,
to gras-p required more reaching.
Yet she was always herself,
her very best self . . .
Daring to be different,
and to follow her own star.
Harpeth Hall began in the fall of 1951, the same
year that Ward-Belmont closed. Under Mrs. Souby,
the Headmistress, and a faculty chosen from Ward-
Belmont, the new school naturally kept many of the
old traditions and standards. Lady of the Hall, the
four major clubs, the Student Council, and the George
Washington birthday celebration are a few of our
familiar institutions which have roots in Ward-
The building known to us as Souby Hall, together
with twenty-six acres of land, was bought from the
Estes family and housed the faculty and all 161
students until the first classrooms were added later
that year. In 1953 the Bullard Gymnasium was
completed. Other additions since then include the
auditorium, the Annie C. Allison Library, and the
Daugh W. Smith Middle School.
Late in the fall of the year Harpeth Hall opened, it
was accredited by the Southern Association. Its
purpose then, as now, was to provide girls with an
opportunity to prepare for college and for life.
Harpeth Hall is now ending its twenty-fifth year, just
as our country is entering its two hundredth year. In a
short time, many changes have been wrought— new
classes, more activities, and Winterim. There are more
changes due. Yet the original, basic idea of
preparation and of experience has not been changed;
it seems only to have expanded.
Knowledge is just self-pride; and if
you're proud of yourself, then
everything else will look better.
Harpeth Hall is essentially a meeting
of the mina\
Is there really such a thing as a
typical Harpeth Hall girl?
Sure were different— but we're
special, and we wouldn't have it any

FACULTY AND CLASSES
Who is someone we all know, see every Monday in assembly, and go to for the
final "yes" or "no" to any question? Who arranges and rearranges our schedules
every year and is always there for every class play, George Washington
celebration, All-Club Picnic, registration, and graduation? Who always tells us
to "keep off the grass," "make this a good year," and "there are only one
hundred and seventy-nine more days of school!"? She's always smiling, always
understanding, and always says exactly the right thing at the right time. This
lady is well known to all of us: she is our own headmistress, Miss Idanelle
The one face familiar to everyone in the Middle School is that of its director,
Miss Polly Fessey. Throughout the summer, Miss Fessey plans and works to make
the coming school year a success. After school opens, she can always be seen
with a friendly smile, whether in the halls or in her office, advising and
encouraging students. She directs the academic program, sponsors the Middle
School Council, and sees that the activities of two hundred students run
smoothly. With warmth and confidence, Miss Fessey makes each year a good
year for the Middle School.
Each year Miss Penelope Mountfort, better known to
most as Miss Penny, begins over again with her
explanations of S.A.T.'s, A.C.T.'s, and college
applications. Her job as counselor can be hectic, but year
after year, each graduate of Harpeth Hall finds herself
enrolled in the college best suited for her, thanks to Miss
Penny. Besides being counselor, Miss Penny sponsors
Milestones, our yearbook. Somehow she manages every
year to coordinate these two activities and to do a great
job with both.
Although known to five classes of Middle School
students as their Ancient History teacher, Miss Janet
Hensley is new to the Upper School this year. Miss
Hensley, now our Dean of Students, is using her
talents and enthusiasm in carrying out a variety of
duties. As organizer of our Winterim term, she
arranges travel programs, approves independent study
projects, schedules the on-campus classes, and
somehow finds rooms, teachers, and equipment for all
courses. She also sponsors the Student Council, serves
on the Student-Faculty Committee, and handles
disciplinary matters. Only a lady as capable as Miss
Hensley could manage all this and manage it well.
Have you ever wondered about who is in charge
of supervising the maintenance people, managing
our budget, and turning in reports about the
building project to the Board of Trustees? The
person who carries these responsibilities is Miss
Herring, and those are just a few of her many
activities as Director of Finance and Development
at Harpeth Hall. Her main responsibility is
supervising the Fund Raising Campaign for our
desperately needed new auditorium— gymnasium-
fine arts building. If the construction of this
complex begins in the spring of 1976 as hoped,
much of the credit should go to Miss Herring for
the time and energy she has put into the campaign.
Through the alumnae magazine and other
publications, Mrs. Polly Nichols, Director of
Alumnae, has kept the graduates of Harpeth Hall
well informed for the past three years. With the aid
of two reporter agents and two finance agents from
each graduating class, she has managed to make
and keep up a record of who is married to whom
and what they have been involved in since
graduation. She works with Miss Herring in their
well-hidden office above Souby Hall. This year has
been busier than ever for Mrs. Nichols because she
has involved the alumnae in the fund-raising
campaign for the new building.

"On August 21, 1975, I, Jacqueline Reiners, arrived in
Nashville. On the second day of my stay, I visited Harpeth
Hall. My first two impressions were that the school looks
like a house and that there are dogs at school. Later I came
to know that people work hard in the "house" and that dogs
even take part in English class. I have finished the tenth
grade in Germany, and when I go back I shall have three
more years of school. I am enjoying my Senior year at
Harpeth Hall, and although I won't be getting credit for my
studies this year, I think the experience will be very useful. I
have learned a lot about the American life and especially
This is what other students say about Jac:
"Jac is tall and she dances very well. She likes men with
fire. French is her favorite language, but she is interested in
Arabic. She can play the flute and the recorder. For her,
Kenya, Africa, is one of the best places to be— she loves the
African temperament. Cooking and riding horses are two
activities which she enjoys very much. She has a good sense
of humor, and it's easy to talk with her. She seems always at
ease and cheerful— never gloomy."
"Jac is a very warm-hearted girl. She has spent most of
her life in Germany. She enjoys Harpeth Hall and her
studies very much. Jac has never been to a school with
uniforms; therefore this is a completely new experience for
her. She isn't used to eight hours of study, but she doesn't
find Harpeth Hall a difficult school. Jac is very sociable and
enjoys the company of Harpeth Hall girls."

How is it possible to re-cap an entire
year of hilarity, tears, and work into one
short paragraph? We, the Seniors of 76,
have been through it all, and more. Our
last year at Harpeth Hall has gone by in a
quick blur, and it's hard to realize that
we've finally made it to the "Big Time."
Sure, we had too much to do and too little
time to do it, but the highlights of our year
as the "Big Wheels on Campus" have been
worth all the effort. Who can forget our
celebrated pumpkin sale in October, our
"out of this world" Senior play, our
desperation in trying to maintain a B +
average or pass Dr. Overholser's English
course, our eating sprees during fourth
period, and the exciting but terrifying
feeling we had as we descended that
platform at graduation, diploma in hand.
The Senior year has been a great year, a
fun year, but most of all, a year of terrific-
friendship. We'll never forget the friends
we've made or the fun we've had. Believe
it or not, it is hard to leave Harpeth Hall
after all these years and go out into the
cold, cruel world to make a name for
ourselves. But with all the preparation
we've had, how can we fail?

For the class of '77, each year at
Harpeth Hall has been better than
the last. The Juniors combined
their talents at the beginning of
the year to stage "All Plugged In."
Lots of time, ingenuity, and
energy on everyone's part made
the play a great success. During
the winter, the Juniors spent their
free time redecorating the Junior
Room. As a community service
project, they helped out at the
new Half- Way House. Finally,
near the end of the year, the
Juniors ganged up against the
Seniors to show their undeniable
prowess on Junior-Senior Day.
Mixed in with all the fun, the
Class of 77 was forced to spend
some time studying. Saturday
mornings spent taking SAT's and
ACT's, college counseling classes,
and lots of moaning on report-
card days marked the Juniors'
awareness that college was not far
However, now that the year is
over, the Juniors are eagerly
awaiting occupation of the Senior
House and their best year ever at

It is hard to find an adjective to
describe this year's Sophomores
because our class is composed of a
large assortment of personalities,
interests, abilities, and ideals.
United, we can produce such
events as the concert that we
staged last spring and the
Sophomore Play that entertained
graduation guests; individually,
we continue to progress in diverse
undertakings. We stand as living
proof that a successful union can
be forged from more than eighty
diverse personalities, and
furthermore, that this union can
survive the Sophomore year with
only a few scrapes and braises.
Next year as Juniors, we hope to
accomplish even more. Vive le

The Freshman Class of 75-76 was
the largest freshman class Harpeth Hall
has ever had, in both size and spirit. At
first, our size was an impediment. It was
difficult for 113 girls to unify
themselves successfully as a class. The
only things we had in common were
uniforms and being Freshmen. We
clung to these factors until, under
enthusiastic leadership, our spirit grew.
The result of our new-found unity was
The Freshman Carnival. We look back
on this year as one of the most difficult
yet rewarding of our school lives; we
look forward to the next with

This year's eighth grade class ends their stay in the Middle
School with mixed emotions. They no longer enjoy
leadership as the "oldest" class, but they look forward to
their first vear in high school.
During the vear, the class worked hard to distribute
stationery to everyone at Harpeth Hall, and the reward for
all their effort was the exciting Eighth Grade Combo.
Afternoons spent getting ready for this event brought the
class together more than ever before in their three years
here. On Honor Dav, the Eighth Graders finally realized
that thev actually did have to leave the Middle School, but
of course looked forward to seeing each other next year in
the Upper School.

The Seventh Grade of '76 is described as
a rowdy bunch,
Just because we push and shove while
running down to lunch.
Even though we're active and occasionally
break a rule,
It's really clearly evident we're the best
in all the school!
We admit we're sometimes naughty, but
most often good as gold,
And we hope the school will remember
us for the qualities we hold.
We place high in academics and skills
of manv sorts,
And we set records for competition in
And when it comes to spirit, we always
have a cheer,
And that is what the Seventh Grade has
meant to us this year.

This year's sixth graders had a variety of activities and
studies to keep them busy. Among our activities were
basketball andbattleball. We also took field trips, such as
the one to the Cumberland Museum. On this field trip,
we saw a film strip about the Indians of America and
heard a lecture about wildlife in Tennessee. After that we
went to the downtown Public Library. We took another
interesting outing to the Tennessee Game Farm.
The subjects we studied this year were math, science,
social studies, English, spelling, reading, music, and art.
The sixth grade Student Council representatives were
Louisa Gibbs, Tami Stevenson, and Jane Mabry.
Between getting used to Interim, broken legs, talking
during Math and Science classes, and the jumping jazz in
P.E., the sixth grade had a great time this year.

This year's Student Council had one major goal: to
inspire enthusiasm by listening to the ideas of the
student body and planning activities in accordance
with them. At the beginning of school, the Council
made its first major effort when it sponsored the
second annual Harpeth Hall play. This year's
production was Ayn Rand's spine-tinglingT/re Night of
January 16th. The actors and actress, directed by Mrs.
Gray, faced a capacity audience both nights. After the
overwhelming success of its first project, there was just
no stopping the Student Council. They sponsored two
major combos, had a paper drive and a Head and Toe
Day, sang carols during Christmas, and entered into an
exchange program with M.B.A. The Student Council
also managed to strengthen its constitution by placing
a greater emphasis on its three committees: Social,
Student Activity, and Public Relations. All in all, the
Student Council members felt that they were
responsive to the desires of the students and made
1975-76 a more exciting year.

The Middle School Student Council meets
once a week to discuss matters concerning the
Middle School. The Council, sponsored by Miss
Fessey, consists of a representative from each
homeroom who brings complaints and
suggestions. The Council tries to keep the
Middle School cooperating by making rules and
helping to enforce them, and they discuss new
ideas that would benefit the students. The
Student Council is an important force in keeping
the Middle School running smoothly.

The Student-Faculty Committee,
composed of six students and four teachers,
serves as a link between the faculty and the
student body. Students elected to this
committee work hard with the teachers
and Miss McMurry to better the
relationship between the two parts of our
school during the year. The spring Seminar
is also a big project of this committee. This
year the Seminar was "Women in Action."
Almost everything from renting an
apartment to running a political campaign
was discussed in relation to the female role
in society today. Since its founding, the
Student-Faculty Committee has proved to
be a useful part of the school community.

If you are presently sitting in your room
reading a book with a blue cover and Milestones
1976 across the front, then we are least partially
succeeded. Up to now it has taken most of our
effort to keep Anne from throwing herself over
the balcony while screaming, "Miss Penny, don't
make me do everything!" It's just been lucky
that we've managed to get copy, pictures, and 3-
R forms all together in time for five deadlines;
and we've learned a lot about putting an annual
together. For instance, pictures turn out best if
there is film in the camera, and certain words
cannot be printed in a Harpeth Hall publication.
So, as you sit there with a book full of 1975-76 in
your lap, rest assured that a lot of food, gossip,
suicide notes, screaming sessions, ink pens (black
ball point), fingernails, and Friday afternoons
have gone into its creation.

1975-1976 was a revolutionary year in
many ways for the staff of Logos II and for the
paper itself. Actually, it all began late last
year when we changed printers. Logos II
came out looking like a more professional
paper; and even if it wasn't, it made the staff
feel more professional! We all can't forget the
many "firsts" that the '75-76 staff initiated:
the first time an issue came out the first week
of school, the first time staff members
attended journalism workshops, the first
"anniversary" issue, the first "April Fool's"
issue, and the first time I^ogos II came out in

Penstaff's aims are many: we strive to share
our imaginations and to achieve creativity in the
written expression of poetry and prose. Aware
that goals are only as durable as the people who
set them, we endeavor to transform dreams to
realities; and then, having attained success, we
immediately reach toward greater heights. We
give our hearts in words and hope that in the
process others will profit from the understanding
which we have gained through experience.

The Harpeth Hall basketball team, coached by Miss Webster, put in
many long hours of work this year. Since the team was placed in a new
league in which they played large schools, the overall record of 7-15 did
not reflect all of the time invested. The students appreciated the team's
effort, as they showed by their increased support.
The Honeybears were not content with winning seven games during
the season; to show their great determination, they took second place in
the annual Tennessee Preparatory School Tournament in Jackson. In
addition, Karen Duvier and Allison Floyd earned positions on the All-
Tournament team there. At the District Two Tournament, Harpeth
Hall was pitted against Goodlettsville. Although Harpeth Hall was
defeated in the game by one point in the last few seconds, Allison
Floyd made a fine showing, scoring thirty-one points. She was
rewarded by being chosen as a member of the All-District team. That
was the first time a Harpeth Hall student had been honored in this way.
Another highlight of the year was the installation of glass backboards
in the gym. The team found that practicing on the new boards greatly
improved their game.
Susan Thornton and Karen Duvier will be greatly missed when they
graduate, since they contributed so much to the team. However,
Harpeth Hall should be optimistic about next year's team, since so
many of this year's fine players will be returning.

This year the track team at Harpeth Hall has
won for the school an impressive reputation for
energy, enthusiasm, and ability in a sport
requiring muscles as well as brains. The largest
team yet for Harpeth Hall, the fourth track
team has worked hard and has excelled in its
grueling schedule. Practicing every day after
school and sometimes on weekends and
holidays, the Middle and Upper School track
team covered many miles at Harpeth Hall,
MBA, Hillsboro, and Percy Warner Park. Rainy
days found them "running steps" next to the
auditorium in Little Harpeth. AH of their hard
work under Coach Kramer was reflected in
their speedy performances in twelve meets.
The dual meets were held along with MBA at
McGavock and Overton; these began at 7:00
p.m. and often lasted for hours. After a rather
chilly performance against Mt. Juliet, the team
warmed up to an impressive record that any
Honeybear can be proud of, the State

This year the Harpeth Hall
tennis team had perhaps the
most successful season ever.
The five top girls on the ladder
had Southern rankings and all
girls had a good deal of
tournament experience. At the
Rotary Team Tournament in
Chattanooga, there were
schools from four states
competing; and Harpeth Hall
won second place, their best
finish ever. They lost by one
point to rival CPS in
Chattanooga. Once again,
Harpeth Hall won the NIL
championship; this year is the
fourth straight year! The team
feels that this season was a big
success, despite the fact that
they didn't get to push Miss
Patty into the pool in
Chattanooga! They would also
like to thank sincerely Debbie
Denton, their manager and
team-mate, and Miss Patty for
their support and help this

This year the Senior Play started off with a bang. The
audience was confused by a beeping light, and then poof!
lights, action, camera! There they were: a bunch of Martians
in blue and green tints, standing on stage dancing to no
music. However, it hadn't been planned that way— the
microphone had not been hooked up correctly, and there
we were, a bunch of idiots dancing around! One special
Martian, Spirit, didn't fit into the Martian "groove," so he
was thrown off Mars. Landing in the Senior House at
Harpeth Hall, Spirit visited each of the classes and finally
found her place among the Seniors. Having made her
contribution and having encouraged classmates to do the
same, Spirit brought the class of '76 together, in real life as
well as in the play.
The Junior Play, performed in November, was a smash
Broadway hit. Essentially the play consisted of take-offs
on a variety of television shows. Chorus girls opened the
show chorally, proclaiming the greatness of television.
Skits were taken from "Sesame Street," "Hee-Haw," and
"The Return of the Pink Panther." A comical
presentation of "Swan Lake" and a hilarious newscast
with WJRS reporters, Walter Concrete, and Lo Bobertini
added finishing touches to the final performance. After
this forty-five minute production, the class presented its
awards to the many who had worked especially hard and
to their sponsor, Mrs. Mamey. They ended by honoring
their fellow classmates with the song "Friends."
Undoubtedly this year's play further strengthened the ties
of friendship within the class of 77.
Since January, 1973, Harpeth Hall has had a unique
career preview, travel, and individual study program.
Initiated by Miss McMurry, our Winterim program has
improved and expanded each year.
Winterim 76, directed by Miss Hensley, was designed to
give the girls at Harpeth Hall learning, working, and
traveling opportunities which would not ordinarily be
available. There were many exciting courses offered, such as
Auto Mechanics, Cooking, South America Studies, Guitar,
Commercial Art, Creative Writing, Modern Dance, and
many, many more.
There were tourers in England and France, skiers in
Aspen, doctors at the Veteran's Hospital, self-defenders at
Harpeth Hall, movie-makers in Beverly Hills, teachers at
Ensworth, and law-makers in the legislature. Most schedules
were packed with places to go, things to do, people to meet,
and much to leam.
A student involved in independent study gains a special
fundamental knowledge of the opportunities or
disadvantages that a particular career has to offer. The
student usually learns just enough to know if the career
study which she has chosen is really what she wants or is not
her special area.
Altogether, Winterim 76 was a smashing success. There
was a lot to learn and a lot to experience in one-short month,
but most of us learned and experience it all!
"The excellent job done by my teachers made Winterim a
success for me."
"Being given the chance to live in a French family for
three weeks provided me with the opportunity not only
to pick up a lot of French, but also to learn to adapt to
new and difficult situations and to be more open-
"I learned more in one month in England than in any other
month of my life; and most of all I learned that anywhere you
go, people are basically the same."
GEORGE WASHINGTON'S BIRTHDAY
The George Washington Celebration, produced each year by Miss
Patty and put on by the Freshman Class, was of special significance this
year, since this is the year of the Bicentennial Celebration. The class of
79 decided to add a new future, tableaux, to the program. These
tableaux consisted of short skits depicting George Washington's
childhood and his success as a general. Miss Patty worked hard to train
each girl for her respective role; she had help from Miss Cathy, who
taught the sailors their dance. Allison Floyd and Terry Welch were
dignified and impressive in their roles as George and Martha
Washington, and the combination of tradition and innovation worked
well to produce a successful program.
THE NIGHT OF
During the first semester of school, the Student Council sponsored a play by Ayn Rand, a murder-
mystery entitled The Night of January 16th. The response for try-outs was overwhelming, and Mrs. Gray
was forced to direct a partial doublecast for the two performances. A matter of interest to all and of
frustration to some was the fact that there are two possible conclusions to the play: a guilty verdict or an
innocent one. A jury selected by lot from the audience decided the defendant's innocence or guilt.
Apparently, the jury's decision was as difficult as that of the audience, because the verdict was innocent
one night and guilty the next. Although there was disagreement about the outcome, everyone concurred
that the performance and the turn-out were outstanding.
H. M. S. PINAFORE
This year, our Glee Club, in conjunction with
the MBA Glee Club, staged a very professional
production of Gilbert and Sullivan's H. M. S.
Pinafore. The production was directed by Mr.
Gerald Arthur, choreographed by Mrs. Nancy
Gray, and accompanied by Mrs. Ann Bishop. Mrs.
Gail Wolery provided the beautiful costumes,
which added the final touch to the show. H. M. S.
Pinafore was performed for Harpeth Hall, MBA,
St. Bernard, and various other schools and churches
in the area. As this year's major musical
production, H. M. S. Pinafore was a smashing
Junior-Senior Day came again in April this year just as it has
for the last twenty-five years. One thing made it especially
distinctive, however . . . the sun was shining. The lack of rain
didn't mean that everyone stayed dry all day, though, because
the usual number of squirt guns showed up, as well as cap guns
and slingshots. The Seniors, dressed as little girls, remained as
demure as possible while being teased and taunted by the
obnoxious Junior "boys." They saved their strength until after
school when they won in tennis, ping-pong, archery, and track,
in addition to playing a tie Softball game. Finally, after dinner,
Miss McMurry awarded the Senior class, as a result of their
athletic endeavors that day and throughout the year, the
Junior-Senior Day trophy.

In 1973 Cum Laude, a nationally
recognized honor society, was chartered at
Harpeth Hall. Cum Laude is the equivalent
on the preparatory school level of Phi Beta
Kappa. In the spring of each year, the top 10
percent of the junior class is inducted into
Cum Laude, and the second 10 per cent of
the senior class is inducted at this time also.
Faculty members who belonged in college to
Phi Beta Kappa or to a similar honor society
are also members of Cum Laude. The
purpose of Cum Laude is like that of the
Honor Society which preceded it: the
recognition of academic excellence. The
student members of Cum Laude are called
members-in-course; they appear in various
assemblies concerning Cum Laude and assist
in planning the chapel programs. To be
received into the Cum Laude Society is the
highest academic honor one can achieve at
Old members. Front: E. Pappas, S. Dicker, K. Herbert, D. Davis, Mrs. Ottarson. Back: J. Johnson, P.

The National Merit Scholarship Program is
sponsored by the National Merit Scholarship
Corporation. To become a National Merit semi-finalist,
one must have scored in the top one half per cent of
the country on the PSAT/NMSQT tests; to become a
finalist, one provides other materials for
consideration, such as SAT scores and school
transcripts and evaluations. Winning a National Merit
Scholarship is the final honor one can receive in the
program; Merit Scholars are selected on the basis of
information provided by the school and the student, as
well as on the basis of the test scores. This year Joyce
Johnson received a National Merit scholarship.
National Merit Commendees are also a part of the
program; these students represent the one and one
half per cent of the nation just under the semi-
Commendees: S. Thornton, S. Dicker.
This year's All-Club Picnic had a unique flavor be-
cause it was preceded by the ground-breaking cere-
mony for the new building. It was an exciting day for
all with the distribution of awards, the final appear-
ance of the "Student Council Follies," and the realiza-
tion that school was over. The Triad Club won the
song competition, which came as no surprise as it was
the fourth consecutive year that they have walked off
with the award. With the school year tucked neatly
under our belts, we all felt relieved and ready for the
summer; but an occasional tear was shed as the picnic
came to a close, and we realized that another year had
come and gone.

LADY OF THE HALL
Few students find it possible to contribute to all phases
of Harpeth Hall life. Susan Thornton is one of those who
seems to have achieved the impossible. In her years at
Harpeth Hall, Susan participated in many varsity
athletics, became involved in several dramatic
productions, worked on the newspaper staff, and
received grades worthy of Cum Laude membership.
Despite, or perhaps because of all her activities, Susan
always had the time to find new friends, to smile, to
laugh, and to love. Out of admiration for her many
accomplishments, her enthusiasm, and her dedication,
the student body elected Susan Thornton this year's
Lady of the Hall.
Serving in Susan's court were representatives from
each class selected by their classmates. Allison Wills was
the crownbearer chosen from the sixth grade class. The
heralds were Nancy Werthan, seventh grade, and Sue
Adams, eighth grade. Freshman Grace Hall, Sophomore
Amy Grant, and Junior Kelly Akers served as attendants
from the Upper School. The Senior Maid was Ginny
Farris. The Flower Girls, both daughters of faculty
members, were Amanda Lee Emerson and Annis
Sue Adams, Ginny Farris, Kelly Akers, Amy Grant, Grace Hall, Allison Wills, Nancy Werthan.

Opposite: Amanda Emerson, Flower Girl; Susan Thornton, Lady of the Hall; Annis Marney, Flower Girl.
The Sophomore Class this year presented A Mid-
summer Night's Dream as their tribute to the Lady of
the Hall and her attendants. Directed by Mrs. Gray,
the sophomores proved not only that they can learn
long, complicated Shakespearean prose, but also that
they can do a superb job with those lines. The play
was light, amusing, and unique; it was quite obvious
that the audience enjoyed every moment of it. The
enthusiasm shown by the actresses of this year's
Sophomore Class in their play is sure to continue
throughout the next two years, and we look forward
to seeing their future achievements.
SENIOR BANQUET AND STEP SINGING
The Senior Banquet gives the members of the
Senior Class a chance to meet with the teachers and
relate to them on a one-to-one basis. This year's Senior
Banquet theme was "A Touch of Senior Class," and
we all enjoyed the conversation, food, and laughs that
we shared with the faculty. On Sunday both the
Senior and Junior Classes proved their singing ability
at step-singing. The Seniors sang their Senior Play
song and a new song entitled "We're on Our Way,"
and the Juniors sang their Junior Play song. The two
traditions of Senior Banquet and Step-Singing made a
memorable week-end, as well as a chance to share the
sentiments of the whole school year.
Each year, the Katie Wray Award is given
to the Senior who has earned the highest
grade point average over four years. This
year, as in past years, the award went to a
student whose interests and activities cover
a broad range of subjects. In addition to the
Katie Wray Award, which Joyce received for
her 3.147 average, she was given the Pickens
Science Award at graduation. This award was
especially appropriate for Joyce since she
intends to major in a pre-med course in
college. We all feel sure Joyce will take full
advantage of her National Merit Scholarship,
awarded by Rice University, since her
ambition prompted the Senior Class to vote
her Most Likely to Succeed. Joyce Johnson's
contributions to Harpeth Hall have been too
numerous to list here. Among them, she
served on the Student Council as a
sophomore and the Student Faculty
Committee the following year. She was
involved in the drama department, acting in
one play and directing another. Her school
spirit was evident since she was a cheerleader
both for her class and for the school during
her junior year. Finally, she put in many
hours of hard work as the copy editor of this
annual. Joyce became a member of Cum
Laude in her junior year and accumulated
enough citizenship points to tie for second
place. We all feel confident that Joyce will be
as much of an asset to Rice and the medical
world as she has been to Harpeth Hall. Good
One aspect of Harpeth Hall that few
people take the time to think about is the
citizenship point system. Although it may
seem vague and unimportant to many, this
system reflects a great deal about each
Harpeth Hall student. Citizenship points are
awarded each year on the basis of academic
attitude, respect for rules and regulations,
fulfillment of responsibilities as an officer,
and attitude towards fellow students.
Throughout her four years in the Upper
School, Debbie Davis excelled in each of
these areas. She became a member of Cum
Laude during her Junior year, which is not
surprising since she held the second highest
grade point average in her senior class. At
graduation she received the Presidents'
Council English Award for having the
highest four-year average in English. In
addition, Debbie worked on the staff of Logos
II, becoming Art Editor during her senior
year. She also served as Junior Representative
on the Student Council. Debbie's ever-
present smile and friendly manner made her
popular among both students and teachers.
For this reason she was selected "Personality
of the Month" during her senior year.
Because of her enthusiasm and hard work,
Debbie accumulated the greatest number of
citizenship points in her past four years. At
the All-Club Picnic, she was awarded the
Citizenship Bracelet, a greatly-deserved
MIDDLE SCHOOL HONOR DAY
Middle School Honor Day is anticipated with
excitement not only because it marks the end of
school for three months, but also because it is
the time that the eighth graders enter high
school and the seventh graders become the
oldest class in the Middle School. The day is
highlighted by the presentation of many awards.
This year, class spirit awards went to Robin
Johnson, sixth grade; Dell Smith, seventh grade;
and Nancy Graves, eighth grade. The Angkor
Club took both the Citizenship Cup and the
Sports Trophy. The J.C.L. Award for the top
student in Latin went to Donna Robinson,
while Misty Sperry received the French Award.
Finally, as the certificates of graduation were
handed out, Donna Robinson and Nancy Graves
were commended for their excellent scholastic

It's hard to put into words the feelings of each Senior
on her graduation day. This year, we, the Seniors of '76,
experienced a variety of emotions. There was a sense of
triumph in realizing that we had finally made it; but
there was also a feeling of sadness when we thought that
life would never be the same without the friends that we
had made at Harpeth Hall. Graduation marks the end of
an era, but it also represents a new beginning for each of
us: a beginning which will lead us all in different
directions. We're on our way, but the closeness we have
found in the Class of '76 will stay strong throughout the
years. Thank you, Harpeth Hall, for giving us this chance
Exeunt Class of '76
We're on our way
Let's not forget
All the times we've had;
It's time for us now
To all say good-bye
Though it may seem sad—
We'll miss the friends that we've made,
The work and the spirit, true,
All that we've shared for these years;
It all seemed to pass too soon,
But we're on our way.
We're on our way
We will meet again.
Try not to cry;
Tears make us think
Of how great it's been.
We loved as strong as we could,
And memories will always stay;
We've had fun times being one—
There's nothing much more to say,
So we're on our way.
