Georgie Digs: Early Hayden High School Days

Georgie Digs!

By Georgiana Wood

I recently had the privilege of reading a friend’s 1941 Hayden, Arizona High School yearbook called “El Burrito”, which was said to be the school’s first annual. That yearbook has individual small photos of the thirty-two Senior class students and the thirty-seven Junior class students, but only lists of the names of the thirty-seven Sophomore students and the fifty-two Freshman students. There also were photos of the superintendent, principal, school board members, and the teachers.

  According to the yearbook, students were very involved in school activities like the school plays, the Glee Club, the Pep Club, Speech Arts Program, the Junior-Senior Prom, and sports. The students were not only from Hayden, but also from nearby areas. I remember many of the students, although they were quite a bit older than myself.

  The many local business ads posted in the last part of the yearbook really proved how busy the Hayden/Winkelman area was then. I was pleased that the contents of this yearbook can be found online by searching El Burrito, because there must be others who like to reminisce as I do.
