super seniors super seniors, super seniors
ln past years it was customary to find one large picture
on this page and maybe a group shot of some seniors who
had managed to compile an average of 3.5 or better. This
year, obviously, things were different. The yearbook staff
was informed that this year would mark a new era in that
the school had decided to recognize not only the top grade
point average senior but also that person who had the
second highest average.
Well. the selection of the valedictorian was not too
difficult. Patrick Twomey had managed to compile the
highest grade point average. Not only had Pat been a
superior worker in the academic areas but he also was a
tireless worker on projects initiated by the student council.
As its president. Pat worked for many long hours outside
of school to make sure that everything went according to
plan. Pat had plans to put all of his talents to work as he
hoped to begin studies for the priesthood after graduation.
The selection of the Salutatorian was much more
difficult. There were three students whose grade point
averages were so close fwithin thousandths of a pointj to
each other that it was felt that the only fair thing to do was
to make all three co-salutatorians.
On behalf of the Adams student body and staff,
congratulations to these four super seniors.

"looks like we made it"
The class of '78 has finally made it!
During their time at Adams they went
through millage defeats. which cut out
spring sports in l976. They have seen the
opening of the pool, and the beginning of
the smoking area for the use of the students.
The class of '78 experienced many
administrative changes in their three year
stay at A.l-l.S. as well. They also had to make
the adjustment to a disciplined attendance
policy this year.
The Seniors were involved in many
activities. Whether they were trying to raise
money for graduation by selling MSM's or
sponsoring dances, the '78ers always
seemed to put their heart into it.
Led by class sponsor. Mrs. Talley, and
the competent class officers, President Rod
Poffenberger. Vice President Lisa Marcoff.
Secretary Lynn l-luzzard, and Treasurer Liz
Birley. the Senior class showed much spirit
and enthusiasm. The Seniors actively
participated during Homecoming, where
they took first place for their float.
Being the largest class ever to graduate
from Adams. with over 500 Seniors, they
excelled both academically and athletically.
Two Seniors placed in the top H0 in the
state in the Michigan Math Prize
competition. Both the Varsity Swim teams
and the Varsity Wrestling team finished well
in the league.
Seventy students had a chance to take
advantage of a Senior trip to the Bahamas
where all thoughts of schoolwork melted in
the heat of the noonday sun. '
Although the Seniors left the hallowed-
halls of Adams behind, they took with them
memories of good times and friends. The
class of '78 went out into the world. each in
their own direction, and faced whatever the
future had in store.
