"With humble gratitude the Seniors of Summerville High School dedicate the 1958 Sequoyah to our parents, because you have so unselfishly given to us your love and devotion.  You have helped us in many ways - as an advisor and a faithful friend, as our guiding light in helping us to solve our prblems.  We dedicate this annual to you as a small token of our sincere love and appreciation for all you have done for us."
