From John Santangini :
About a year ago Betsy Shelburne posted a picture of Mrs. Wilhelm's first grade class at Cloverdale. My mother passed that same picture along to me a few years ago and written on the back are the names of everyone in the picture, so I decided to repost it along with the names – I’m sure that you’ll recognize many of them. Notice that Bob Ashurst and Arthur Britton are barefooted (those were the good old days) and I bet that most of the boys along the back row were too – I know I was. Enjoy!

Teacher – Mrs. Wilhelm
THE LANIER ALMA MATER
Dear Lanier, though fleeting time
May bear us far away from thee
Forever in thy hallowed halls
Each heart will dwell in loyalty.
Faithful to the blue and white We will be.
And before thy shrine of knowledge
We will kneel to thee
Alma Mater, thy standard waves
Triumphant through each passing year;
We love thy spirit, true and brave,
Thy courage through each threatening fear,
We will hold when we began our lives anew,
Memories of the sheltering walls,
And of thy friendships true.
