Scope and Contents
Anderson’s clippings from the two newspapers mainly included her educational and athletic accomplishments, while also including football and basketball game highlights. Anderson was a cheerleader while attending Junior High, while also participating in track and archery and broke many school records with her participation in track. She was her Homeroom Officer and served as the campaign manager for her friend who ran for “Bunker Treasurer.” She was voted Most Athletic at the end of her 9th grade year by her peers, received the Honor Athlete Award, an American Legion Medal, the “Magna Cum Laude” achievement in her Latin studies, and also finished third in her 9A (9th grade) class with a cumulative grade point average of 3.27 over the three years she attended Bunker Junior High.
While attending her first year at Muskegon Senior High, Anderson attended and participated in many school plays and choir concerts. She included some of these programs in her scrapbook. By the end of 10th grade, Anderson had participated in the Conservation Club, Booster Club, the Masque Society, bowling, volleyball, A Cappella group, and received the “Cum Laude” achievement in Latin studies.
