Welcome to the PS#8 memory lane page for the 1951 8th grade

This material is from the files of Mollie Burnett Bird class of '51of Clarksville,Tenn.

Due to the scope of her enthusiasm I have been forced to be selective in this presentation. Please accept my apologies for any omisions which you may know of to be entombed in the archives of the Herald Statesman or other private collections. However,significant contributions may be communicated to me via email at rancho@ranchoarriba.com (although this may require registration of a new domain).

Here then is the portrait of our innocence

If you have come to school each day, While some were playing "hookey, If you've become a real scholar, But not a goody-goody.

If you've learned to face the music Like an All American man If you've learned to take your punishment, As a real American can.

If you've learned to be calm and collected If unjustly blamed, some time, If you've tried to make your ideals Still farther, upward climb.

If, at this graduation before you, You, and these people that you see, Think that you can do these things, Then fine, American citizens you will be.
