She possesses —
An enthusiasm for her subject that is transferred to her
students . . .
An interest that does not begin and end between the
covers of a textbook . . .
A curiosity which compels her to delve beneath the
surface . . .
An eagerness for new information which she passes on
to her students with a familiar “Now then,
Class . .
She admires excellence, disdains mediocrity and
apathy, but will accept honest effort. Cow brains, baby
chickens, bean plants and amoebas all hold a fascina-
tion for her — fascination that is somehow strangely
contagious . . .
The 1969 OAK LEAF spotlights
MISS MAE JENNINGS
For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A Time to be born, a time to die;
A Time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A Time to kill, and a time to heal;
A Time to break down, and a time to build up;
A Time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A Time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A Time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones
A Time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A Time to seek, and a time to lose;
A Time to keep and a time to cast away;
A Time to rend, and a time to sew;
A Time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A Time to love, a time to hate;
A Time for war, and a time for peace.

Leaves fall from the trees
Such as days from the years.
The leaves are lifted by the breeze
And days remembered with out tears.
Yes, these are the days loved by all
Yet, they are gone, Yes . . .

The succession of hops and dances that become a
blurred memory ... the forgotten boyfriend or girl-
friend of the 8th grade days . . . the crisp air of football
games or the excitement that explodes in a crowded
gym . . . the romantic mood of the Jr.-Sr. Prom—
“Gone With the Wind” . . . the teacher who could
never be deceived . . . the series of “lasts” — the last
football game — the last pep rally — the last dance . . .
the melancholy mood of Senior Assembly . . . the
wearing of a cap and gown . . . the mental tabulation of
failures and accomplishments . . . the finality of an
empty locker ... “I declare you graduates of Radford
High School.” . . . things will never be the same.
L to R - Larry Price: President, Sylvia Cale: Secretary, Terry Howlett: Treasurer, Woody Yopp: Vice President.
