Smithfield High School is com- 
posed of many people today. These 
students and teachers with their 
shared memories and experiences 
are the thread of our theme. Just 
as a mirror reflects an image, so our 
HAM is the pulse and the lifeblood 
of our student body. It is to these 
people, those who have been here, 
you who are here now, and those 
who are yet to come upon which the 
’69 HAM is based.

These people are the spokes in the wheel of life at 

Smithfield High School. 



4 




These people create the 
life of Smithfield High 
School . . . they are 
the life of Smithfield 
High School. 








THESE PEOPLE 

ARE YOU.

rules .... signing corridor passes, erasing black- 
boards .... coaching the teams, counseling the 
bewildered .... distributing forms, collecting 
money .... holding class meetings .... mimeo-

Division Superintendent

As a four year principal at SHS, Mr. Richard 
Saunders has worked zealously with the student 
body. By working long hours both day and night, 
he has made this school one of which we can all 
be proud. 

Mr. Saunders graduated from Caroline County 
High School, received B.A. degree from Ran- 
dolph Macon College, and his Master of Educa- 
tion degree from the College of William and 
Mary. After he served as a teacher and coach in 
Mecklenburg County, Mr. Saunders moved to 
Smithfield where he served as a teacher, coach, 
and assistant principal before becoming principal 
of Smithfield High School. 

The Senior Class expresses its sincerest appre- 
ciation for Mr. Saunders’ tireless efforts in 
leading us at SHS. 



Entering his third year as assistant principal, 
Mr. Charles England assumed his duties and 
worked hard to make a good year. 

Mr. England attended East Tennessee State 
University where he received his B.S. degree. He 
came to us from Jonesville High School, Jones- 
ville, Virginia. 

Along with his duties as assistant principal, 
Mr. England has coached the Varsity football 
team with J.V. boys’ basketball team. He was a 
co-sponsor of the Varsity Club. 

As a real friend to the entire Student body, 
the Senior Class expresses its appreciation to Mr. 
England for his active interest in the welfare of 
our school and its students.

Assuming her duties as our school secretary, 
Mrs. Sara Cox proved indispensable in the effi- 
cient running of school business. Each day she 
was faced with working office machines, typing 
letters and forms, or making announcements. 

A graduate of Kee’s Costal Business College, 
Mrs. Cox serves as secretary to the principal, 
general purpose clerk to the entire school body, 
and bookkeeper. 

As a real aid to the whole school, many 
thanks go to Mrs. Sara Cox for her consideration 
and co-operation. 


“Do you think I can get into college?” 

“Are College Boards really that hard?” 

These and many other questions were faced 
by our guidance counselor, Mrs. Elizabeth B. 
Rowell, who spent many hours in advising and 
counseling students this year. 

Throughout the year she has been an invalu- 
able aid to all those with academic or personal 
problems.

Mock Elections 



Presidential Headquarters of SHS. 

Keeping in the spirit of the 1968 presidential election, SHS held its own mock elections. Approximately 450 
Packers registered a week ahead of the November 1 election. Not only did the Packers vote for President and Vice 
President but also for their congressional representative and the $81 ,000,000 educational referendum. 

The results? The majority ruled in favor of Wallace for President, Watkins Abbitt for Congressional representative 
and in favor of the educational referendum.

Juniors Receive Classrings 



A Balfour representative took class ring orders. 

“Mine’s aquamarine, size 7!” “Did you get a crest?” 

Excited Juniors showed pride after receiving their class rings in December (just in time 
for Christmas). Having waited almost two months, the Juniors proudly displayed the 
coming of a new decade with a new Senior class, for engraved on their rings was - 
Packers, 1970! 



An atmosphere of excited confusion.

SCA Elections 




Walls at SHS were covered in signs made by busy campaign- Voters line up to cast their ballot, 

ers. 


After a competitive week of campaigning, the S.C.A. elections were held last March 29, 1968. The school’s hallways 
were covered with campaign signs and posters, and the whole student body was alive with excitement. Four boy candidates 
triumphed over their girl opponents, asserting male supremacy at SHS. The new S.C.A. officers were Stephen Edwards, 
President; Danny Smith, Vice President; Joe Gale, Secretary ; and Charles Edwards, Treasurer.

There’s a mouse on the floor! 


The Pep Rallies this past year at SHS were a mass of yelling students and waving arms. School 
Spirit surmounted all previous years. The separate classes strained their vocal chords to compete 
for the Spirit Stick, an honor given to the class displaying the most school spirit. SHS sincerely 
thanks the cheerleaders for promoting such enthusiastic spirit this past year.

One of the SCA council's main functions was to hold monthly assemblies. Jean Doggett, a 
senior member, was the program chairman. Assemblies have ranged from a concert by the 
Continental Army Bank to a fashion show by the Home Economics Department. Several clubs 
sponsored these assembly programs.

for Christmas 


The purpose of the Beta Club is the promotion of 
the ideals of honesty, service, and leadership and to 
reward meritorious achievement. 



What an ironic comparison!! 


The club sponsored the annual “Beta Capers” in 
November which proved a great success. They deco- 
rated the doors in the high school at Christmas, and in 
March the Beta members and their sponsor attended 
the State Beta Convention in Richmond. 

Under the leadership of Mrs. Louise Caldwell, the 
Club promoted projects as a means of service to others. 



How about a Hawaiian Punch? 


Members are selected from Juniors and Seniors who 
have achieved academic excellence and have shown 
outstanding leadership abilities. To be chosen for 
membership a student must maintain a “B” average in 
academics and meet the approval of the faculty and 
Beta members. 



Jean, we’ve got to stop meeting like this!

The requirements for membership make the 
Quill and Scroll an international honor organiza- 
tion. Members are selected from the Junior and 
Senior classes who have shown an outstanding 
ability in the field of journalism and who rank in 
the upper one-third of their classes. 

Proceeds from the selling of Halloween candy 
went towards a hundred dollar scholarship for a 
deserving Senior. 

Under the leadership of Mrs. Jean Clayton, 
the Quill and Scroll strived to promote jour- 
nalism and made the year a great success.

The Library Club was comprised of stu- 
dents who helped in seeing that books were 
available to students for both pleasure and 
for reference.

helped students find their needed reference 
materials.

Romans Ideals and Adventures 



The Latin Club of SHS, under the Leadership of 
Mrs. Martha Gwaltney, proved to be very successful 
this year in promoting a greater interest in the 
language and culture of ancient Rome. 

Meetings, held once a month, centered around 
various topics which made the members of the club 
more appreciative of the Ancient Romans and the 
influence which they have on our lives today. 

New members are initiated each spring by mas- 
querading as Roman gods and goddesses. A banquet 
for old members was held after mid-term examina- 
tions, and a beach party for both new and old 
members was put on at the end of the year.

ship at SHS. 

The girls supplied drinks for the cheer-

The Pep Club was added to the list of clubs at SHS 
for the first time this year. Under the sponsorship of 
Mr. J. B. Spinks, the club’s main purpose is to help the 
cheerleaders raise school spirit at athletic events. 

The members were taught cheers by the cheer- 
leaders and a constitution was adopted. A pep section 
was reserved for the club at football and basketball 
games, and the members were given top priority for 
riding buses to away football games.

SHS Marching 
Band 

Under the direction of Mr. J. B. Spinks, the 
Smithfield High School Band strived to become 
bigger and better as the year progressed. They 
started out the year by performing at home 
football games and attending an away game at 
Gloucester. 

Parades! Parades! Many parades were attend- 
ed by the SHS Band throughout the year such 
as the Oyster Bowl Parade, Azalea Festival, 
Williamsburg Parade, Peanut Bowl, and last but 
not least, Smithfield’s Homecoming Parade. 

On March 14 the band held a Pop Concert 
and on May 30 a Spring Concert bringing 
enjoyment to all who attended. 

Many thanks go to the Band Boosters Club, 
headed by C. E. Jones. This club consisted of 
Ruritan Club members and parents of band 
members who kept the concession stand at 
football games. Other money-raising projects 
included selling football programs and selling 
magazine subscriptions in November making 
the year a great success.

fundamental basketball, as well as good sportsmanship. 
With a year of profitable experience behind them, SHS

This cheer was one of many heard at pep rallies, football games,

The Packer Cheerleaders worked hard to promote school spirit

make this event one of the most exciting 
highlights of the school year. This was indeed a 
hard decision for judges to make, but after much 
deliberation, the judges announced Miss Ellen 
Woodard the reigning queen of Smithfield High 
School for 1968. Certainly no one could forget 
this night!

Fine ships don't roll off a production line. 
They’re built efficiently and well only by men 
whose skills and knowledge are broad. That's 
why Newport News begins at the beginning 
with its own selective Apprentice School. 

High School graduates enter on the basis 
of academic record. But selectivity doesn’t 
stop there. In classroom and shop, in the 
drafting room and out in the yard, each man’s 


special abilities are watched and developed. 

Some become skilled and versatile ma- 
chinists. Others become expert electricians 
or precision tool makers. Many becomesuper- 
visors. Some earn scholarships for advanced 
training at colleges and technical schools. 

We think the School’s a pretty inspiring 
place, because its end results are good men 
and good ships.
