Bernice High School
The following pupils of the grammer grades and the High School Department of the Bernice High School have made the following averages for the first semester as are annexed to their respective names.
In our former report, there was not (I believe) a single instance in high school in which a boy excelled a girl. Girls leading in every score, but this semester report shows two boys, Donald Lindsey and Key Welch. Freshman and Sophomore respectively lead two girls in each of their respective divisions.
The grades here tabulated were earned by dire hard work. Nothing is given in this school but kindness and first class instructions to students.
Each and every one is placed on his own initiative. He and she must either pass or fail. No one will be passed that does not merit same.
Pupils are made to know that work is the only thing that counts and that going to school and lesson getting are matters of pure business as much as keeping a store and railroading.
Respectfully, C. C. Kennedy
