The totals of the 1944 graduating class of Prescott High School in Prescott, Arizona numbered 90 people – 53 girls and 37 boys. Prescott High's 1944 Hassayamper yearbook presents all the events and remembrances of the class year through a mock journey of the school’s mascot: Budgy The Badger. Throughout the pages of the Hassayamper, Budgy 'goes out for the team,' 'hits the high points' and catches some students 'off guard.'
