It was with this thought in mind that we decided to provide the means for parents of seniors to communicate a parting message to their sons or daughters. Whether it was in their own words or a quote from another person, the messages were the same . . . expressions of love, pride and best wishes. To Debra [Anspach], To become a happier person — learn to count your blessings instead of your heartbreaks. — Mom For our Beth ICheneyI, From her birth to this day she has given us love, happiness and pride. On her day and every day we wish her happiness and success. — Love, Dad, Mom, Chris, Kathy and Moe To Jeff [Campbell], We wish you the best of luck and hope you look into the future with the right idea of what you want out of life. And you know, you will always have a place reserved in our hearts. — Mom and Dad To Joy Cornwell1, The coming of your graduation reminds us how quickly time passes and makes us realize the value of each precious day. May each day of your life be fruitful and provide you with many happy memories. — Mom and Dad To Joseph "Habibi" [Awad], We trust that in all your ways you will acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths and take care of you. Always remember that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom — Thank you for the many hours of joy and the few moments of anxiety that you bring to us. To John [Arlington], Where have the years gone? Yesterday we were looking forward to your first day in school and today we're remembering your last. In between there has been a little anxiety, a little sorrow, but a lot of pride and happiness and most of all, John, love. — Mom and Dad — Love, Mom and Dad i 4You have made us proud of you. For the future we wish for you only the very best things in life. — Love, Mom and Dad To Sue [Fensler), To Donna Daft1, We appreciate the good attitude you have always had toward your school work and your willingness to accept our guidance. May God bless you in your future plans. — Mom and Dad To Ed Delp I, Congratulations! May you continue your education with the same enthusiasm and dedication and sensitivity to others as you have shown. We are proud to be your parents. —Morn and Dad "To know what you prefer, instead of humbly saying Amen to what the world tells you you ought to prefer is to have kept your soul alive." — Robert Louis Stevenson — Mom and Dad To Mike [Elliott], To Darla [Hunsicker Shinn), May this year and the following years be happy ones. — Mom and Dad To Judy [Keller], Congratulations on this yearbook of 1977 We hope all your tasks in life will be as enjoyable and successful as editing this yearbook has been. — Mom and Dad To Lon [Kent], "You are young, my son, and, as the years go by, time will change and even reverse many of your present opinions. Refrain therefore awhile from setting yourself up as a judge of the highest matters." —Plato — Mom and Dad To Diane [K ingenberger], Good luck and best wishes in all you do. May the world be good to you. — Mom and Dad Today is the first day of the rest of your life. — Mom and Dad To Debi |Lamb),To Charlene [Oates], "If you want favor with both God and man, and a reputation for good judgement and common sense, then trust the Lord completely; don't ever trust yourself. In everything you do, put God first and He will direct you and crown your efforts with success." —Proverbs 3:4, 5, 6 — Mom and Dad To Tina [Lantz , May all your hopes and dreams come true and always stay as sweet and considerate as you are now. —Love. Mom Twelve years ago you started on a new venture in life. Today you go on to greater things. May you always have the best of luck and thank you dear for just being you. — Love, Mom and Dad To Jill I Lawrence], What you are is God's gift to you. What you make of yourself is your gift to God. — Love, Mom and Dad To Annette [McBride], "Success is fruit which grows from seeds of patient work and thoughts and deeds" — Martin Buxbaum — Dad and Mom To Bo [Michael], May you design and discover the very special person that only you can be. —Love, Mom To Tony [Musser], Some days your moods are up, Some days they are down. But most important of all you've always been around. Soon you'll leave in search of your dreams and find you've grown out of your teens . . . a young man now out on your own, but never forget, you can always come home. — Mom and Dad To Brenda [Naylor],To Sylvia Rex , To know you as a person has been a special joy and privilege to us as your parents. As we think about your future we become aware of how much we will miss your constant presence.

Best wishes as you begin another exciting time in your life. When things get rough, call collect. — Love, Mom and Dad Mike and Marilee [Agin], We've searched the books for words so rare. We've racked our brains to find words there. None were good enough or seemed quite right. So the usual will have to do.

Moving up: everyone, students and teachers, seniors and seventh graders, coaches and team members, ail reaching for goals to move themselves up. This year the WE has tried to show how Ada High School is moving up. Ada’s 85 seniors have finished twelve years of school and moved up and out into the world. For many the search for knowledge has not ended. For the juniors, it’s moving up to be a senior, the climax of their high school years. The eighth graders are moving up into high school as freshmen. While the sixth graders take that big step into junior high. And all other underclassmen move up into their respective classes, each to learn more to help them reach their goals. All the members on the WE staff certainly feel that the yearbook is moving up. Everyone has done their best to be sure that this will be the best yearbook yet. At times we wondered if we would be able to do it, with deadlines and all the other hassles we encountered, but somehow we did it. WE ’77 would like to express its deepest appreciation to Joyce Dunn for the use of her glass picture of Ada long ago. Thanks go to Powell Studios for taking many of our pictures. A very special thank you goes to senior, Ed Delp, for designing our cover and the arrows on the divider pages. His hard work and creative ideas helped this yearbook to move up. Special recognition should go to Mrs. Arlington and the Ada Herald for doing our copy for us. Thanks go to Steve White, our Taylor Publishing representative for all his help. But most of all, thanks to Mrs. Lindabury, the advisor. She helped us a great deal and inspired many good ideas. Also, I would like to express my sincere thanks to the annual staff for working hard but still taking time to have fun.
