Mansfield High School Graduates

LISTINGS FROM THE 1938 MANSFIELD HIGH SCHOOL YEARBOOK , "MANSCRIPT" Prior to 1913, not a pupil had graduated from a four year high school course in Mansfield. The course was narrow and only the few who wanted to go on to college stayed for the new high school course. The enrollment was sixty four for four years of high school in 1914. In 1913 a class of three graduated in a three year course and in 1914, a class of seven in a four year course. Not all of the following addresses were verified. A question mark has been added in cases of extreme doubt. In a few instances, no information was available.

This information was taken from the 1938 school year book. Joyce M. Tice has added supplemental information. 
Photos are from the 1927 and 1928 yearbooks.

Class of 1928
There are four people in this listing that also appeared in the 1927 senior listing with photos. I assume they expected to graduate in 1927, but for whatever reason did not receive their diplomas until 1928.

1928 Alumni News

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.
