MISS MARGARET ADAMS


BOARD OF EDUCATION
DEDICATION

At Murray County High School there is a woman who has taught the young people a lot more than you can learn from any text book, whether in sports or in the classroom, her experience has probed to be invaluable to us all. She is not just another teacher, but a person that has the ability to relate to you on your own level. Her zest for life has a contagious effect that makes you want to try a little harder when she is around. This woman is a true character. She's honest and straight forward and does not know the meaning of the word hypocrite. She cannot be anybody but herself, we would have it any other way. To MISS MARGARET ADAMS, WE DEDICATE THE 1977 ARROWHEAD.
