This year the 1978 Annual Staff would like to dedicate their annual to Mrs. Jennie Gasner. Mrs. Gasner has been the Annual Advisor for five years and without her, there would be no annual and no way for the students and faculty to leave a token of their feelings about AHS. Mrs. Gasner has made it possible for us to hold on to the memories of events and the friendships which would fade without an annual to look back at.
We are all thankful for the time, effort, and organization she has put forth. The Annual Staff wants to show their gratitude and appreciation for all she has done by dedicating this annual to her. It is something we all helped put together and we are proud of it. More important, however, we are proud of our advisor. Mrs. Gasner has not only been an advisor and a teacher, but a true friend as well.
We sincerely hope she has enjoyed her years at Albany and wish her the best for the future. Thank you, Mrs. Gasner, and Congratulations from your 1978 Annual Staff.
CONGRA TULA TIONS AND BEST WISHES JENNIE GASNER

It is strange and wonderous how the lack of strength emits the greatest power. Those who are at all cognizant of the current status of Roger Pluss know what power is. While we are saddened and lessened by death, we are fulfilled and strengthened by survival.
Normally a section such as this commemorates one who has passed away, ALWAYS before his or her prime.
It is called a "rememberance," something we feel we are supposed to do. Perhaps because we feel better about recognizing something we cannot avoid. This section, however, is different. For instead of carrying the weight of death, we are affirming the gift of life.
No, Roger did not die. He is alive, miraculously, in every sence and fiber of that word. While the "odds" favored a rememberance page for Roger, he overcame them and is now rewarded with sincere recognition. The doctors say it's his age that matters. True, but few teenagers have shown the determination to survive in such an extraordinary way. As a result, Roger's weakness became our strength. He gave cause to a basketball team. He supplied happiness and determination to a family. He caused a community to gather together for good and see the results.
Roger would be the first to deny such things. We must all remember the strength of the human will, and that the "will to live" is the strongest. We should be grateful that Roger's experience has made all OUR trials less distressing.
For this "witness" to life and the pleasure of existence, we thank and affirm you, Roger Pluss. See you in school next year.
From past experience we have found that with a limited staff, we could get more work done. We all worked together to meet the deadlines and to raise the necessary money to cover expenses for the publication of the 1978 Annual.
A special thanks goes to Mr. Astin and to Mr. Gasner for helping with the photography. I would also like to extend a special thanks to Mrs. Gasner, our advisor, for all the time and effort she put in to help us make a successful Annual. Without her help and encouragement, we never would have gotten the 1978 Annual completed.
As editor, I would like to thank the entire staff for all the help and time they devoted to the annual with a special thanks to Teri Gohlke and Lisa Sellnow. Best of luck to Lisa as next year's Annual Editor. Memories of 1977-78 will always remain with me -Thank you A. H. S.
