3If you treasure the beauty that shows all around you,And try to add some
of your own
noA 0M§ sj0i|}o djqsuompdujOD aip AofugYet value your moments alone
78If you honor opinions that differ from yours yet stand up for what you believeAdmire the accomplishments others have made
And take pride in what you
believeIf you're a real friend who comes through when it counts,
12Who always is worthy of trust,If you follow your heart anywhere it may lead you, and do what you feel that you must
MIf you love those around you, and love yourself too, if your spirit is eager and freeand to be the best "you" you can

The English Department coordinated several learning projects, including one-act plays and banquets. Zula Bennett's Junio English classes and her French Class held a Drama Festival with English students participating in plays and the French students presenting various well-known fairy tales in French.

The Student Council, under the direction of sponsors Eleanor Hudgens and Richard Denham, had a very busy year. Early in the year, aside from the Council’s Homecoming duties, members sponsored a Disco dance, Name Tag Day, and the annual Blood Drive. At Christmas the Student Council sold Candy-Grams to be exchanged among the students. In the spring, members of the Council coordinated a school talent show, Arbor Day, and held a tea for the faculty.Talent Show

For the first time at Albertville High School a literary magazine was published, entitled Wind Sketches. It was funded by a state grant and will probably become a yearly publication. Its contents were the result of a contest in the areas of poetry, art, and photographs.

Once again the Spanish Club was active in ‘■muchos" activities at A.H.S.! For the first time we decorated a truck for the homecoming parade, and shook all of downtown Albertville with our Spanish cheers. The traditional Christmas ,,fiesta,, was a huge success, as second and third year students created two beautiful “pihatas" for students to break. Traditional Mexican cuisine was enjoyed by all. both at the fiesta, and at Mexican restaurants in Huntsville and Gadsden on field trips throughout the year. Nine club members accompanied Miss Teal to Mexico and discovered that studying Spanish was truly an earthshaking (or should we say “earthquaking") experience! We in the Spanish Club look for an even more exciting time next year

Margaret Strickland has been a teacher at Albertville High School for twenty years. She has taught Economics and Democracy, Psychology and Sociology and Latin. She was the sponsor the Latin Club and took them to numerous Latin conventions; and one year the Latin convention was held here at A.H.S. under her Supervision. Previous to her years at A.H.S. she taught home bound children for two years and she was also a part-time social worker. She will be dearly missed.

He taught Vocational Agriculture for ten years, was Principal of an elementary school for 5 years, taught at Ohatchee School for 5 years and he has been at A.H.S. coordinating the D.E. Program for ten years. Mr. McClendon plans to spend his retirement helping his wife in their drapery business and just "taking it easy." We will miss him.
Michelle plans to attend Samford University in the fall and major in science and possibly in Pre-Medicine. She has been active in such school activities as the Math Tournament and the Yearbook Staff. She is a member of the Interact Club, Student Council, Math Club, Senior National Honor Society, Students in Action for Education, and the Science Club. Michelle received the L. G. Balfour award, the Outstanding Student award, and was an honor student.
"The most important decisions of our lives are made entirely by ourselves. We laid the foundation for success by our decision to graduate. All through high school, we have been somewhat sheltered and are now about to enter a world run by competition. Through the years, we have all been involved in competition of some form and therefore know the effort that must be made in order to be the victor. These experiences provide us with a small-scale model of what to expect in life. Today we are congratulating ourselves on our present achievements and are deciding whether this success will continue throughout our lives or whether it will succumb to pressures and become dormant. This isn't just a decision of success in our occupation but of success in our total lives. Success isn't measured only by material possessions or by how the world views us but it includes our happiness, security, and peace of mind. Without these we may have suceeded in gaining possessions but will have missed something vital to life and will actually be failures. We must decide today which way our lives are going.
"Let's make today not only the 'first day of the rest of our lives' but the first day of the best of our lives."
Cindy plans to attend Snead State Junior College this fall and next fall will transfer to Auburn University. Her plans are to major in Pharmacy. She participated in many school activities such as the Scholars Bowl and the Math Tournament. Cindy belongs to the Math Club, Science Club, Interact, Honor Society, Student Council, Yearbook Staff, and Students in Action for Education. She is an honor student and received the Math award and a scholarship to Snead State Junior College.
"In the world today, everyone faces some sort of challenge. Upon graduation, we as seniors must face these challenges with a feeling of confidence. The transition of a high school senior entering a rapidly changing world is no easy task. The challenges we seniors will meet trying to adjust to this transition will be numerous. We must realize the importance of our decisions at this point in our lives. Our actions will become a part of building the future for tomorrow. That is why our decisions will be important not only to ourselves but to others that depend upon us as well.
“A decision concerning what role in the future each of us will play must be made carefully. We are now aware that the future is here. The time is now and the solutions rest with us. Let's face this challenge with the determination for success, and it will one day be ours."
