Superintendent J. M. Moorman
    We dedicate this, the 1957 Lair, to a man who is the symbol of leadership.  In both his everyday activities and his forceful, challenging speeches, he has won the respect and friendship of everyone on the campus.
    This man came to Rockdale in 1955.  He has become an integral, essential part of the schools.  He is a man of energy, intelligence and vision, a man with a future that promises to be even greater than his present.  It is an honor to dedicate this annual to the man and the future:

Superintendent's Message
Dear Students,
    America needs well-poised, straight thinking, cooperative citizens of a democratic society to cope with a world of natural confusion.  You can create a nation permeated by justice, amity, understanding and cooperation for all; however, you must be prepared.  This preparation must come from your school, your home, and our community.  My greatest hope is that your school can serve as a cornerstone in the building of a happier and more profitable life for each of you.
     I trust that you will be able to say in after years that your school was an important factor in developing in your the ability to think right.  As you think, you act; acts repeated become habits; habits form character; and character determines destiny.
                                                                         Your friend,
                                                                         J. M. Moorman
