Trivoli, IL Community High School Alumni Notes 1923
Doings of the Alumni Members
Many years seem to have passed since the class of 1923 were students of old T. C. H. S., yet in reality it has been but a short year since the halls of the old school resounded with our merry voices and long famous utterances.
When boning for an examination or receiving a lecture on discipline, none of us realized how true the old saying is that high school days are the most enjoyable days of a person's life. Now after having been out of school but a few months, we have heard several members of the old class say that college is great but they would give five years of their life to be able to live over their high school days again.
But time never turns back the big clock of life and we cannot go back. We must begin to look for our special niche in this busy life. We wonder how many of us are sure that we have found that niche—not many.
Of the class of '23, five are continuing their training, Esther in Normal, preparing to teach ; Bob in Bradley, the stepping stone to the medical profession ; Theodore, Clinton and Russell also are continuing their training at Bradley for a professional career.
The remaining members of the class have discontinued their schooling for the present at least. The occupations of these have varied somewhat. Melva is employed by Mrs. Doebler of Peoria, who in former years, taught many of the class their abc's. Louise, Mary, Dorothy and Mildred have been at home, excepting last summer when Mary attended Normal for the summer term.
Of the boys, Cecil, Elwyn and John are taking an agriculture course with their parents as instructors. Myron worked on the home farm part of the summer and winter. During the season of cement road building he was employed as assistant to the state engineer. Recently he has accepted a position with the Producers Association of Peoria. Last but not least comes our jolly Leslie Kelly who has succeeded in raising his weight to 215 lbs. He is in business with the National Motorists Association in Peoria.
Thus we find the Alumni after one year's absence from old T. C. H. S. Each year the graduating class adds more members to the Alumni and it will become more scattered each year. These members will start out as a cog in our nation's industry with the knowledge they have gained in T. C. H. S. as a basis for their success.
