I am sure that all of the Alumni will agree with me in saying that the days spent in Mansfield High have been the best days of their lives – yes, and the most wonderful. So it is with reluctance that we passed on to make room for some one else. Against our wishes, yes; but the world keeps moving, and so must we.
To some of us Mansfield High has meant only the first step to high education in colleges, universities, and technical schools. To others of us, it is the climax of our education and the beginning of life’s fight.
Mansfield High schools many for more worthy home-making and a broader social services; and it teaches all to live and work together happily and helpfully in a great democracy.
We realize that our Alma Mater is ever leading on in life’s work; strengthening weaker ones, encouraging stronger ones.
To the four winds we ultimately go, but will we ever forget our days in Mansfield High? No, never. They will always remain dear to our memories.
