In 1941 a new class numbering approximately one hundred and forty students entered Stowe Teachers College.  Of the group fourteen have reached the final semester of the senior year.  The class has gallantly endured the "ups and downs" in preparation for a life career of teaching.

In the class are students who have excelled in both curricular and co-curricular activities.  The top ranking student is Cordelia Bell.

In the field of dramatics we point with pride to James Bailey, a former student of Mr. C. H. Anderson of Sumner High School.

The musicians of the class are Lorraine Jones, Mildred Cooper, Houster Grey, and James Chinn.  As vocalists students acknowledge James Bailey and Marvel Mingo.

The group boasts two outstanding athletes:  Sidney McNeal, captain of the 1944 varsity basketball team, and James Chinn, a four-letter man, and also a member of the varsity basketball team.

Gloria Thompson is not only an expert dancer, but was also voted the best dressed girl on the campus in 1944.

The June Class of '46, about fifteen in number, spent an exciting semester trying to put theory into practice at Simmons School.  Their novel experiences provided some mishaps and much laughter.

Though small in number this class excells in scholarship and worthwhile activities.  Clara Etta Tompkins, president of the Student Government Association and Stowe branch of the N.A.A.C.P., is a new addition to the class, and is perhaps its most energetic member.  Bessie Ward, president of the class, Eula Johnson and Harriet Craddock are Physical Education minors and active members of the W.A.A. Hortense Watkins holds the place of Assistant Dean of Women, and Elizabeth McAllister serves as a student assistant in the department of English, conducting a class in Remedial Reading.  Doris Nelson is a member of the Stowe Y.W.C.A.; Helen McGee is president of the Pan-Hellenic Council; and Elizabeth Price, vice-president of the class, is first ranking student.
