TIME %line Bonner :ime of year seems to care, ts, and the flowers out, and shout, joy and laugh- h~r them the morning his year, girl meet, it's are full of love, a lovely pair, Patricia Ann Strickland is another honored senior this week. She is the daughter of Mrs. J. T. Blackwell of New Harmony and Mr. Char]ie New- born from Milton, Florida. Pat has two sisters, Bonnie Wea- thers, a Paxton graduate, and Deborah Newborn, a Paxton third grader. Pat was born in Heflin, Ala- bama, August 22, 1953. Shenow resides with her husband, Way- land Strickland, in the Natrual Bridge Community. She says that she hopes someday to have a family of her own, but she plans to become a nurse first. Pat expects to enter nurse's training after graduation from PHS. Pat's favorite foods are bar- becued T-bone steak, french fries, and hot rolls. Of all sports, Pat likes softball, bas- ketball, roller skating, and bow- ling best. Her hobbies are: riding horses, hiking, and clean- ing house. Pat also likes to grow flowers. Baby Blue is her favorite color. It matches her lovely eyes. Pat has been a member of the F.H.A. for four years. She has served her chapter as song lea- der. In addition, she is a mem- ber of the New Harmony Bap- tist Church. Pat says that she likes frien- dly people who have respect for others. She insists that she does not like conceited peo- ple. Pat's future plans include at- tending McArthur Tech in Opp, Alabama where she will receive her nurse's training. We like Pat a lot and we hope that she will find much happi- ness and satisfaction in her life. It smells ao sweet as you walk the garden or a beach, Walking hand in hand dreaming you're both in a new land, Or sitting in the warm, golden sand. Spring is when the sun is so bright, It looks like a great beautiful light, And during the day, people enjoy work and play, But when the stars come, Stars come above through the twilight, They shine in the dark sky, Seeming to be so shy, As they blink and wink at you and me, Sitting there under our favorite tree. This week we honor the lovely Roberta Wynell Schofield as our Senior of the Week. Born January 21, 1954, Roberta is a native of Florala, Alabama. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bobby Kemp of Paxton. Roberta has three sisters: Brenda, a former Paxton graduate, Patsy and Jackie, who are students at Paxton. Her brother, Bobby, is a second grader at Paxton. Roberta is married. She resides in Pax- ton with her husband, Fred Scho- field. Roberta has participated in a number of extracurricular ac- tivities at school. In addition she is president of the senior class. Her hobbies are sewing and cooking. She says that her favorite foods are mashed potatoes and steak. Roberta said that sports she likes best are bowling, skating and horse- back riding. Roberta said, "l like nice, friendly people who help other people, but I don't like people who think they are bet- ter than others." Roberta attends the Paxton Assembly of God Church. She said ,that she wants to be a housewife or "home execu- tive". She says that she hopes someday to have a family of her own. We asked her if she could have one wish, what would it be? Roberta replied, "I wish the war in Vietnam would stop and all of our boys would get to come home." With her char- ming personality and optimistic outlook on life, Roberta is sure to achieve anything she under- takes. We wish for her the very best.
