FIRST GISEMO - 1945
The School Year of 1944-45 was unlike any
before or any since.
World War II was being fought all over the
Normandy Invasion June, 1944, the Battle
of the Bulge, December 1944 reports horrified the public in movie news
reels, newspaper, and radio.
It is no wonder some of Gideon's Students
left their classmates to serve their country before the school year was over.
The 1st Yearbook was dedicated to these students and all the classmates in the
war - Also to the graduation class of 1945 You can read the
