Thirty Seniors Recognized As Leaders

Clubs, Athletics, Attendance, Scholastic Standings Upheld By Graduating Group

Every age has had its leaders. Alexander, Caesar, Napoleon, Wilson, Edison, Lindbergh and Roosevelt, among a host of others, have held their respective places on the
ladder of outstanding achievements. Every movement owes its success to the tenacity and ability to do of a few men and women.

It is no less true of our own 1934 graduating class that its organizations, athletic teams, attendance and scholastic standings have been led and upheld by certain
outstanding members. The picture of these people appears in this issue of the Spotlight.

For the most part, these seniors of 1934 represent those who have gained recognition through leadership, scholarship or athletic ability. There are cases, however,
where others not pictured have been equally as active and have done their share in making the class of 1934 one of the most outstanding to be graduated from
Coatesville High School. We cannot all be leaders, there must be followers.

The respective positions which have qualified these people for this picture are: William Batteiger, president of Dramatic Club; Margaret Bickham, president of Girls
Hi-Y Club; Robert Callahan, vice-president of senior class of 1934; Mary Cifranic, honor pupil; Elizabeth Copeland, honor pupil; Priscilla and William Cuff, perfect
attendance records of eleven years; Augustine DeFroscia, captain of baseball team; Grace Dept, president of James Adams Girl Reserve Club; Frieda Friedrich, editor of
Spotlight and honor pupil; Ronald Forbes, honor pupil; Lois Heck, honor pupil; Jean Hershey, president Girls Glee Club and honor pupil; Irvie Hoffman, president of
Band and honor pupil; Andrew Kissh, president of senior class and winner of Edgar S. Garman cup award of 1934; Steve Krupansky, honor pupil; Charlotte LeFevre,
president of Meistersinger, secretary of senior class of 1934, circulation manager of Spotlight, and honor pupil; Bertha Lotman, honor pupil; William McCoy, president
of James Adams Hi-Y; Nicholas Pitcherella, captain of basketball team; Irene Porter, captain of girls basketball team and winner of Edgar S. Garman cup award, honor
pupil; John Pursel, co-captain of swimming team; Sara Reese, president of Skizarinktums; Leanore Rife, honor pupil; Paul Scahill, president of Boys Glee Club; John Stively, president of Student Council and honor pupil; Zelma White, treasurer of senior class of 1934 and honor pupil; Franklin Williams, president of Boys Hi-Y Club and honor pupil; Forrest Yeagle, captain of track team; Lillian Young, honor pupil.
