Class Poem

Cobbs Creek High holds the Ace,
For she has won every race.
In 1910 she came along,
With a fort that is still strong.

But its character stands good and high,
Like a white cloud up in the sky.
Its colors are garnet and gray
These will never, never fade away.

It seems as if we just started here,
And now our graduation is near.
We have all tried to learn our part,
So we'll turn to the world for a new start.

She has taught us the way to go,
On to our ambitions that glow.
She has offered us all her will and knowledge,
To prepare ourselves for life or college.

Through the crooks and turns to our waiting goal;
We must work and push with our very heart and soul,
As we slowly and surely reach the top,
We can look upon Cobbs Creek High as our starting spot.

She may be old and out of date,
But she still stands at first-rate.
She is like a mother to this town,
For now she wears a golden crown.

Inside her walls are memories old,
All of which can never be told;
Many a graduate has left there sad,
Looking to the future but remembering the past.
