He's back and we're glad! Mr. Ryder should be a familiar face to many of us. Although this is his first year here as principal, September 1956-1964 found him here as a science teacher,
guidance counselor, basketball coach, and ath-letic director. Harry Hunt thrived under his leadership three years as an assistant principal and two years as principal.
Mr. Morgan comes to us with plenty of ex-perience in spite of his youth. He taught at Harry Hunt Junior High from 1965 to 1967. The 67-68 school year found him at Highland Biltmore Elementary School as assistant principal. He spent from 1968 to 1970 as principal of Churchland Junior High School. He is now serving Wilson as assistant principal in charge of instruction.
Mr. Morgan checks up on the faculty.
This is Mr. Randall's second year at Wilson is assistantprincipal. Before coming here last year, heserved as assistant principal at S. H. Clarke for oneyear and at Riddick Weaver Elementary for two years. He has taught social studies at Clarke andNorcom. He's here now, and we're proud of it.
