DEDICATION

In all walks of school life, student need to feel that the principal not only understands their problems, but is sympathetic to the things they desire. The principal must be the type of person who will require they get the necessary disciplines and direction to prepare them in their selected field of study or in their chosen vocation in future years.

We feel France Adams epitomizes all the qualities that embody the job he has performed for the past four years.

He treats his fellow administrators and his faculty members equally and impartially in the difficult decision he has to make as the principal of Murray County High School.

He has led the way with his interest, not only in academics, but in all the extra-curricular activities as well.

He was there when he was needed.

For this reason and many more, too innumerable to mention, we the members of the 1983 Arrowhead Staff, proudly dedicate this year's annual to FRANCE ADAMS.
