Alief-Elsik High School was officially dedicated to Mrs. Jewell Elsik. Highlights from the May 2, 1976 ceremony include music from the Elsik-Hastings band and visits from Ms. E.A. Olle (Olle Middle School) and Ms. Viola Mahanay (Mahanay Elementary School). Mrs. Elsik presented a portrait of herself to Elsik’s first principal, Ann O’Donnell. In a winning season, Homecoming '84 became a special event. Juniors Tony Mesa, Kay Williams, Amy Armbruster, Jennifer Burton, Cheri Allen and Bizzy Deckard rented a limousine for the evening. Elsik lost its first homecoming game to Memorial (27-0) on November 2, 1979 during its second year in varsity competition.Activities 6 Juniors 188 Student Life 8 Sophomores 200 Sports 56 Freshmen 212 The '76 Ramblings is dedicated to Jewell Elsik who became involved with AISD in 1957 as a nursing consultant with the Harris Co.

In 1935, Alief gained the benefit of electricity and by 1940 the town had grown to a total population of 150. In 1934, 90 first through seventh graders were taught in a three story building. At the same time, high school In 1934, 90 first through seventh graders were taught in a three story building. In its early stages of development, this cotton producing and dairy farming community was faced with drainage problems that were eventually improved with the digging of Braes Bayou. enrollment had declined so that the few remaining high school students had to be bussed to HISD and Ft. Bend ISD schools. Senior Cheerleaders Julie Johnson, Leslie Lawless.

After their halftime per- formance, the Blue Bombers were assaulted with water balloons by the cheerleaders. The Juniors emerged victors at tho ond of the game with a score of 7-6. Elsik Outgrew Hastings South Now Future Expansion Needed In 1964, state laws were altered stating that high schools must consist of twelve grade levels rather than ten. As a result, high school enrollment increased and in 1964, Alief Junior-Senior High School (presently Alief Middle School) was opened. In its first year, it housed junior high school and ninth grade. Each year an additional grade was added with the first senior class graduating in 1967. The original Elsik High School, presently Hastings South, was opened in 1975 with a freshman class of 313 students. In ten years, Elsik outgrew one building and filled another to maximum capacity with almost 3,000 students. Because Elsik's growth is expected to continue, construction for new wings on Elsik’s north and west sides is tentatively scheduled to begin in January, 1986 and end in the fall of 1987. When the construction is finished, Elsik is expected to hold approximately 4,200 students.

Opening 5Growth, Diversification, And House Bill 72 Influence Activities As Elsik has grown and changed in size and interests, so have the many activities in which students participate. Some of Elsik’s early clubs such as History Club and Library Club have disappeared, but new clubs such as Mu Alpha Theta, Wet Paint and Academic Decathlon have formed. The first homecoming was celebrated in 1979 when the first senior class that graduated returned home. New sports and teams such as soccer, swimming and diving were also added. Organizations have also grown. The first Revelliers squad consisted of only 36 members and has 70 members today. The first band had only 24 members and now has 157 members. Clubs such as NHS and Student Council have grown from 22 and 23 members to 130 and 166 members. House Bill 72 raised eligibility standards so that participants in any extracurricular activities who were failing one class were ineligible. Although involvement has maintained, participants and sponsors were given a new challenge with HB 72’s passage.

The Points Never Came The opponent, Spring Woods, was the same team that Elsik challenged last year. “Although we won last year, the score was only 3-0 and the victory didn't come until the last thirty seconds when we finally got that crucial field goal." remembered '84 Graduate Kathie Lanigan. Spring Woods scored their field goal with 11:55 left in the fourth quarter, and at the seven second mark, the Rams scored their only two points of the game on a safety. “It seemed like no matter what we did. we just couldn't put any points on the board," remarked Quarterback Rusty Skinner. Senior Gary Neal explained. "The game was a major disappointment. We have a better team; we just weren't ready for the game." The night was perfect. As the first few people trickled into the stadium, expectancy and high hopes filled the air. No one would have guessed that the pep rally at school Thursday morning was a total disaster. “Everyone was really bummed out because of the new rules about not wrapping the school and staying behind the black line at the pep rally.” explained Senior Wendi Pena. Sophomore Karen Speanburg said. “I was really disappointed at the pep rally. I would have hated to have been in the shoes of the football players.” At the game, typical noises of the band playing Jump, the Revelliers' chants and cowbells on homecoming mums filled the air. Every few seconds, there was a scream of delight as someone saw a friend that had graduated and welcomed him home. This was the third game of the season and the varsity football team had managed to maintain a 2-1 record. “After defeating Lee and Katy in the first games of the season, the first game of district competition held high hopes for everyone.” said Senior Jill Edmunson. Although the game demonstrated a heartbreaking loss, returning Homecoming Queen Jennifer West was. “just happy to be back and to get to Senior Doug Schamburg. 84, gains more yardage on a roverse play while Seniors Gary Porter. 24. and Chris crown Kim."

Diane Shrout, Robin Williams Homecoming 9Breaking Tradition Seniors Profit From Dance "Why are there so many people dancing?" Sophomore Alicia Parada commented sarcastically. It was 10 p.m.. 15 minutes after the dance had begun and the dance floor was still empty! Nevertheless, the DJ.'s kept playing those records enthusiastically. Just when things were beginning to drag a bit too much. Homecoming Queen nominees Nora Wilkerson and Mitzi McDowell decided to get things going and took to the dance floor. With this cue. others soon followed. Before the dance, most people had been at the game or out to eat. The fact that Elsik was losing didn't seem to affect anyone's mood. They came with the intention of having a good time and it certainly looked as if that was being accomplished. "... We're making a good time of it.” Sophomore Shannon Collins said. Homecoming Queen Kim Adams arrived around 10:30 with her boyfriend Tim Moore. Kim was in something of a daze, but then who wouldn't be? "I'm real excited." she said. "I guess it's a neat feeling to know you're a queen. It's hard to believe. I guess - just - thanks everyone!" She was almost breathless, and her eyes glowed, the perfect image of an ecstatic person. By 11 p.m. the South House cafeteria was filled with a crowd of energetic dancers. 10 Homecoming Songs of the night were Top 40 favorites: She-Bop. Borderline, Let's Go Crazy, Just Called To Say Love You. The Reflex, Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go. and When Doves Cry. The D.J.'s dedicated We’re Not Gonna Take It to the seniors. Halfway through the dance they introduced and congratulated the duchesses, queen nominees and the queen. The smell of popcorn dominated the air. By the atrium couples were having photographs taken. Although many came with dates, a number of students just came with friends. Attendance was definitely up from previous years, and for the first time in the history of the dance, the Senior Class made a profit from tickets. Attire varied. There was really no dress code but the rules of the school dress code still applied. The students took this opportunity to dress up a bit. Almost all of the guys wore suits, some even renting tuxedoes. The girls were in formals or party dresses. The crowd began to disperse about midnight. Post-dance plans? "Cruise Westheimer!" exclaimed Sophomore Richard Palacio. Junior Jay Anderson commented thoughtfully. "I think I forgot to tell my parents that I'm not coming home tonight.” The night ended when the D.J.'s played the ballad Drive by the Cars.

Houston Chronicle Reporter Eddie Sefko. with the help of Head Coach Sciba. capsuled Elsik's past football records and told the story of the Ram’s "Cinderella season.” Cinderella season it was; the Rams had a 5-1 district record and, if they defeated Hastings on November 9. they alone would have captured the 17-5A District Championship. Senior receiver Doug Schamburg commented, "they say that Hastings has all the good athletes, but I think we’ve proven we have a few good athletes this year.” Going into the game, the team had already secured a spot in the play-offs but a victory over Hastings could have provided "a District Championship and the personal satisfaction of knowing that we (Elsik) beat Hastings.” remarked Senior George Craig. Senior Don Ballard, "just couldn’t believe that we lost.” as Hastings kept a perfect 8-0 record in its series with Elsik. "The game looked great when we were ahead 6-0. We thought we already had the game in the bag.” said Senior Becky Bettega. Then, with 4:44 left in the second quarter, Hastings Runningback Ken Franklin scored a touchdown and. with four seconds until intermission, Franklin scored a field goal to give Hastings a 9-7 lead. "After the first half, the game was all downhill.” said '84 Graduate Kevin Allen. "We were already looking ahead to the Astrodome.” said Senior Rusty Skinner. Because they lost to Hastings, the team would have to face the second in state ranked Madison Marlins on November 16. For this game the picture wasn’t as pretty - Elsik was picked to lose 27-7. "If we’re going to win. Curtis (Larry) has got to get through their defense," concluded Senior Gary Neal. Throughout the game. Larry was allowed only 33 yards on 22 carries and Elsik's offense was shut down for a 35-0 loss. Outstanding linebacker for the game. Shawn Forestall, had eight tackles and two interceptions for the evening. “The loss hurt but. overall, we had a great season," said Senior Gary Neal.

"They show a lot of spirit and they worked hard." said Junior Coach Gary Ott of his girls, the Junior Bandits. "They're gonna win. The Senior Class of '86 will always rule!" Senior Citizens Coach George Craig had similar thoughts. "We worked hard and we're hungry. There ain't nothing stopping us." Underclassmen had mixed thoughts. "We want the juniors to win because we’re tired of the seniors winning, and we’re gonna beat the seniors next year when we're juniors!" claimed Sophomore Chaula Gandhi. "Powder Puff gives the girls a chance to play a so-called 'man’s game', and it's just a lot of fun," said Junior Mary Meredith. "I was tired of sitting in the stands," commented Junior Alice Hsiao. "I wanted to show my spirit by playing in the fields." Senior Teri Packard said, "It's fun to see the temporary role reversal.” Junior DeDe Jefferson reflected. "This game has brought unity in our class, and new friends that I never knew I had." Tracy Geise agreed. "Everyone is so supportive - like a family." "It’s my senior year and I wanted to get involved in some extracurricular activities." explained Richard Rennison. "The Blue Bombers was the best one I could think of. Besides, for one day. we can fool around without getting in trouble!” Junior Tim Wardlow admitted that he "especially liked being trained by the drill team!" "During Powder Puff, everyone can relax a bit.” commented Senior Jason Martinez. "The Blue Bombers offer a release from school pressures and show us that we can be silly and humorous even here." Freshman Jimmy Harrison simply exclaimed. "It's the best way I've started a Thursday morning!" The game started at 7 p.m. on the side of the stands, the Blue Bombers could be seen (and heard) causing their usual uproar. “No food or drinks, you guys!" reminded Senior Sue Lee. "Remember, you're the drill team!” Belinda Tunon pleaded. "Guys, please get into your lines!" At All halftime, the candidates for Powder Puff King. George Craig. Shawn Forestall. Gary Neal. Doug Schaumburg, and Rusty Skinner were introduced. The winner. George Craig, was escorted onto the field by his mother. Then the Blue Bombers repeated their earlier routine. The game lasted a little under an hour and a half, with the seniors leading all the way to the final score of 16-6. A surprise came when "Blue Bombers Alumni" members Brian Sendell and Thomas Cochran arrived towards the end of the game, and at the conclusion of the night, stood up to sing the alma mater, along with everyone else, before going home.

This production was different from past performances because the author. Thorntorn Wilder, required the players to pantomime a majority of the props. Scenery, also, was minimal. "There's some scenery for those of you who feel you have to have it.” said Stage Manager Shawn Fields to the audience at one time. Despite the lack of :oncrete props, the audience was very receptive and the play a great success. The Theatre Department put a great deal of time and effort into the preparation of this play. Auditions were held August 30 and 31. Rehearsal began almost immediately afterwards, on September 4, and continued until the day before the performance. The last week was the most tiring. The students would stay as late as 8 p.m. sometimes. Everyone went a little crazy that week. There were a few problems with the light and sound crews which were straightened out as soon as possible. Technical Stage Manager Junior Patti Parsons probably experienced the most pressure being the only inquestionable authority next to Ms. Boone. But everything paid off on opening night. Backstage activities were hectic as the tension built. The time was 7:20. "Circle up in five minutes.” Drama instructor Carolyn Boone suddenly announced.

Some Photo by Lee Cates, cast members spent as much referring to a tradition in the Drama Department. Five minutes prior to a show, everyone who is involved in the play links hands in a circle while Ms. Boone offers words of encouragement and often some very personal messages. It ends with everyone whispering "Break a leg!" and dispersing the circle. The play is about how the little things in life matter. Junior Christopher Lundquist and Sophomore Shannon Collins played the main characters, George Gibbs and Emily Webb. The major supporting roles of George's and Emily’s parents were portrayed by Senior Chris Everett and Junior Bobbie Wagner as Mr. and Mrs. Gibbs, and Seniors Wil Clark and Penni Siemens as Mr. and Mrs. Webb. The most significant and most difficult role was Senior Shawn Fields' part as the Stage Manager, who served as a narrator for the story. The play was shown three times, opening on October 11 and performed again in both a matinee and night presentation on October 13. Closing night saw mixed emotions in the cast and crew. Tears of both joy and sadness were shed. "I can't believe it’s over so soon.” said Freshman Claudia Jiminez. "It’s so sad.” Sophomore Michele Krohn, a Townsperson, made sure Patti’s efforts did not go unrecognized. "Wait, I want to say something,” she announced as the circle was beginning to break up. "Before we go out there I just want to say Patti, please disregard any rude remarks, dirty looks or name-calling on our part because you did a great job as stage manager." Patti, who was already in tears, thanked everyone for being cooperative. Feelings of relief and satisfaction prevailed as the drama room was cleared. "You won't believe this now." Christopher Lundquist said, "but you're going to miss rehearsals. Next week, when you get home at three, you'll feel empty. You will." At 10:45 everyone headed out to Wil's to celebrate a job well done. As he walked out Freshman Jody Ezernack stated happily, "This is the first thing I’ve been involved in at Elsik and it has been a wonderful first experience!” By C.

Cates Autumn Fest Encourages Yearly School Participation “We’re pulling out all the stops to make this festival by far the biggest and best ever.” stated the general chairman of the Alief Autumn Festival. Bill Henry. Additions to the festival included many new booths and a dance on Saturday night. Mel Garret and “The Texas Travelers" played at the free dance on October 6. Other highlights of the festival included the largest selection of rides ever for the festival, homemade arts and crafts and ten thousand pumpkins that were given away by the West Houston Medical Center. Not only was the festival better than ever, but the parade also provided a good time for those watching and participating in it. The parade included many civic organizations and school groups. Groups from Elsik that participated included the Marching Ram Band and Flag Corps, the Revelliers. the cheerleaders and. for the first time, the Student Council had a truck full of members. President Tracy Kagan explained. “We wanted to represent Elsik. The parade got us publicity and we had a lot of fun.” Senior Cheerleader Julie Johnson. After participating in the parade for the past three years said. “This is my last parade ya’ll." One of the reasons that the parade was Sophomoro Melinda Klenke helps Sophomore Raclyn so memorable was that it was on a Saturday morning and, after staying out late on Friday night, many of the participants would have preferred to be at home asleep. Senior Revellier Angie Hudson remarked. “I am too tired. I wanted to sleep in. Why can't they do this in the afternoon?” Student Council members began Spears decorate Senior Blake Meyers' truck for the Student worrying when Senior Blake Meyers was late arriving with the truck they were to ride in. Vice President Dee Dee Jefferson remembered, “Tracy and I were about to die when Blake didn’t come until 30 minutes late." The annual parade also gives the community a chance to show their support for the organizations Council. Photo by L. Cates participating in the parade.

In the beginning, activities such as Student-Faculty Volleyball games. Christmas plays involving students and faculty. Pep Rally skits by teachers and the first Freshman Slave Market (Sale) in which not only freshmen but teachers also were sold, were not uncommon. Mrs. Susan Contine, who has taught at Elsik since its first year, remembers when there were only 23 teachers and 313 was the only principal. The second year (76-77). Mr. Bobby Porter became the vice-principal and the third year (77-78). Mrs. Elsie Kneeling came to Elsik from Hastings as one of the two assistant principals. The first students had a big hand in starting many traditions. As eighth graders, they assembled and decided Elsik's mascot, colors, alma mater and fight song. “When they voted on the colors, there was a tie between green and white and purple and white. Just before the run-off vote, Those were the days when we had fun at school . . . students, all classes were held in ten upstairs rooms (because the school was not finished) and Mrs. O'Donnell was the only principal. She said, "One of the funniest things about the school was that at the football games, we always had our band, drill team and all the parents and students while the other team's stands were practically empty because they were freshman and sophomore games.” Elsik's first principal. Mrs. Ann O'Donnell, served for six years (1975-81) and in the school's first year, she someone suggested Columbia blue and white because a chair outside of the auditorium was blue. That color combination won,” said Mrs. O'Donnell. Mrs. Marti Toulmin started the winning tradition for the girls cross country team in her first year at Elsik (77-78) which was also the first year for Elsik to have a cross country team. Actually, there weren't enough people running to have an official team. Five people are required to score team points. For the district meet, three Coaches Bob Kopetsky (basketball 1976 1981), Lcn Smith (volleyball and bas- ketball, 1976-77; biology. 76-80) and Gary Pless (football and track. 76- people were quickly recruited making a team of six that placed third in district. “We sent two runners. Freshman Chris Meeks and Sophomore Donna Barr, to state and Chris placed first. The second year of cross country, we upset heavily favored Memorial and won district and went on to place first in regionals and ninth in state.” present) are the unofficial winners of the four-legged race in the second Student Congress sponsored Field Day on Friday. May 13, 1977. explained Coach Toulmin. Mrs. O'Donnell remembers that in Elsik's first years, "It was exciting to see the birth of a new school and the unity of the students and teachers that started many traditions.” By Rae Rabe.

Padre Island, Colorado, Austin Teens Enjoy Break "There were about eight of us who rented a condo at Padre Island. We left Monday morning and came home Wednesday night. It was great to get away for a few days!” explained Senior Michelle Hahn. "Spring Break gives us a chance to take it easy for a week - it is the only holiday, other than Easter, during the spring semester," said Senior Vijaya Rao. The most popular activities during Break were going to the beach and snow skiing. While some students just got their friends together for fun. others took trips with their families or other groups. Junior Shannon Pratt said. "My family always goes skiing over Spring Break. Colorado is a great place to "get away" to for a week." Journalism students, including Ramblings and Rampage staff and Journalism I students, took their annual trip to the ILPC Convention at the University of Texas at Austin. Sophomore Dan Billman, Rampage reporter, was the recipient of traditional initiation rites. "I knew I was going to get it when I heard a bunch of noise outside of my door and then, everyone was in my room at once." said Dan. "Spring Break is a necessary part of the second semester. I couldn't believe it when I heard that the School Board even considered not having it next year. I love Spring Break!" said Freshman Cheryl Smythe. Spring Break 23Jason’s Face Scares Foxworth And Rocha Worse Than Mask Over 200 parents, teachers, and students came to see this special presentation, an hour of Elsik’s best talent. The lights grew dim and the curtain swung open, displaying The Light Band ‘‘We’re not a real band just a group of friends. It gave us a good feeling. We're in Students for Christ because it's neat to be in school and still relate to God. replied Lead Singer Erica Cheng. Six out of the ten acts were dances, three of which were Revellier dances. They also danced with Chris Lundquist in It's Cats. It’s Frightening was the only act without music. It was a skit from a book performed by Tangy Foxworth and Diana Rocha. “I'd wanted to be in the Talent Show since I was a freshman and this was my last year, so why not.” replied Diana. Minutes before the show Chris Lundquist came up to them and asked if they would mind if Jason would take off his mask before they screamed and ran off stage to add a little more to their skit. They agreed and it brought laughs from everyone. For a finale every participant in the Talent Show sang We Are the World.

Cates Reagan Re-Elected, Snow Blankets Houston Area Around the globe, there were human tragedies and triumphs. Most Americans felt a surging optimism despite the chaotic events around them. Renewed nationalism resulted from the XXIII Olympic Games and the presidential election. The United States swept through the events to emerge with 174 gold medals. The men's gymnastics team won the team competition and Houstonian Mary Lou Retton won the women's all-around gymnastics. Track star Carl Lewis streaked through to win four gold medals and the swim teams ran away with 27 out of 29 gold. After the glory of the games came another victory for Ronald Reagon who won in a ‘landslide' over Walter Mondale. However, this did not detract from Geraldine Ferraro’s achievement as Mondale's running mate and the first woman to run on a presidential ticket. Though inflation was down, unemployment remained high and over 35 million people lived at the poverty line, the highest number in 20 years. William Schroeder received an artificial heart, lived through a stroke, and did miraculously well afterwards. However, the controversial baboon heart transplant on Baby Fae was not successful, as the infant died three weeks later of kidney failure. Human tragedies devastated cities and killed hundreds. In Bhopal. India, a gas leak poisoned over 2.000 people and a gas explosion in Mexico City killed hundreds. In Ethiopia millions of people starved to death due to drought and famine. And in the United States, the McDonalds slayings in July shocked the nation.

A surge of teen violence in Houston characterized the nightly news. At Elsik, Gilbert Cuellar was arrested in January for allegedly murdering his mother and friend. David Porte, of Spring Branch I.S.D.. was found guilty of murdering a letter carrier and sentenced to 75 years. Elsik had a spectacular year in sports.

Current Events 29Legislature Forces H.B. 72 Reforms As school let out for summer vacation in May 1984. many students did not realize how tremendously the special summer session of the Texas legislature would affect their lives. House Bill 72, sponsored by H. Ross Perot’s Select Committee on Public Education (SCOPE), and H.B. 246, initiated many education changes. Seniors returned to school disheartened because of the loss of final exemptions. Senior government teacher Mrs. Brandt remarked. ‘‘I miss them (exemptions). By second semester I think you've done all the finals taking you need to do. I understand the intent of the legislation, but I don’t think it will necessarily prove anything." "Even though exams are important, the Seniors have worked for the privilege of exemptions . . .’’ said Senior Ray Schmidt. H.B. 72 instituted the ‘no pass no play' rule which affected all extracurricular activities. It stated that if students were not passing all six classes at the end of the six weeks, they would be ineligible for the following six weeks. Girls Cross Country and Track Coach Liz Parke said. "I feel it is a little harsh. Most coaches stress academics and agree that grades are important, but I feel that maybe we should be allowed to check grades after three weeks instead of six." The bill also stated that students would not be allowed more than ten "school business” absences per year or over eight hours of participation due to activities per week.Teachers received a whopping state salary base of $15,000. Another issue of concern to students was absences allowed per semester. In the past. AISD students were allowed fifteen absences per semester. Statewide regulations changed this to a combination of ten excused and unexcused absences per semester. Although these are the most talked about changes, they are not the only ones. Graduation requirements were raised to 22 credits and students were allowed to choose one of three graduation plans to pursue. As a result, electives began to suffer a lack of enrollment of college bound students. Discipline policies were altered to comply with new state regulations. IBS became the Special Assignments Class - SAC. and students received 100% credit Junior Dorothy Kolb strives for the finish line at the District Cross Country meet at Bear Creek Park.

Junior Michelle Solomon remarked. "It made me realize just how ‘lucky’ we were in AISD. The rules were fair but not overly strict.” Senior Scott McFarlane described "Governor White wanted an education reform so much that he just jumped at the first thing that came along even if it was a bit extreme."

Pai Education Reforms 31Courses Created To Fulfill HB2 46 Requirements Students scheduling their classes for the 1985-86 school year found a number of new courses had been added to the curriculum. To meet the requirements of House Bill 246. four new courses were created: Introduction to Biology. Introduction to Computer Programming, World Geography, and Business Data Processing. According to North House Counselor Molly Brown. “Introduction to Biology is a lab oriented course teaching the basics of biology.” If a student opts to take World Geography, he will study different cultures in all the major cultures of the world as well as examine the role physical environments play in the interaction of people. The demand for new computer courses and the growing use of computers in society prompted legislators to require school districts to offer more computer oriented courses. Elsik already offers a computer math class through the Math Department. However, only those students with a math background higher than Algebra I are eligible to take it. “The new computer courses differ from the present computer math class in that the math levels are different. Students would want to take Introduction to Computer Programming and Business Data Processing to gain a more general knowledge of computers.” explained Mrs. Brown, head counselor. ”1 would say that all the new courses available to students, especially the computer courses, will help students because they will appeal to those who aren't math oriented.” Counselors were concerned mainly with the class of '88 - the freshmen. Since all the new graduation requirements took affect with their entrance to high school. parent counselor and student conferences have become necessary to plan out Students work in fourth period Computer Math. New wings planned for com- pletion in 1987 will house brand new computer facilities. Photo by L. Catos a student's schedule for the next four years of school. “We've been working closely with the freshmen, showing them they have to plan earlier and be more selective in the classes they take.” said Mrs. Brown. The class of '88 will be able to choose among three graduation plans: the Regular Program, Advanced Program, and Advanced with Honors Program. Freshman Chris Fox said. "I chose the Advanced Program because I think it will give me a better chance of getting into college.” Mrs. Brown stressed that even though a student may choose to follow a Regular Graduation plan, it would still be a college preparatory plan. “All three can be college preparatory,” she stated. Some students had already taken the time at home to work out their four year plan. Freshman Due Tran said. "I've already planned out everything I will need to take to graduate with the Advanced Plan. To me passing a course has always been secondary to making an ‘A’ in it.” said Due. Some students, unlike Due, are not college bound and instead may choose to take Vocational Education to help them gain work experience. At first there was some question as to how the new graduation requirements would affect the vocational programs. Vocational Counselor John Hall cleared up the confusion. “It is still possible to take vocational classes anc graduate with an Advanced Plan." said Mr. Hall. "Since it now takes 22 credits to graduate there won’t be much room for failing.” concluded Mrs. Browr "I really feel the students will benefit , from this.” By Audra i Sanchez.

Sides Teen Problems Surface Tragically The increasing suicide rate among teenagers has become alarming as indicated by media reports and the Clear Lake suicides. On April 23 and 24, meetings on this much publicized topic were held in the North LGI. Though both Drs. Karen Helffenstein and Morton Katz were scheduled to speak. Dr. Helffenstein was unable to speak due to a patient problem. Dr. Katz, also a consultant to AISD. Spring Branch ISD, and several Catholic and Jewish schools, presented an interesting and earnest discussion on the factors that lead to suicide and coping with suicide. Several members of the audience contributed to the discussion with personal situations and questions. The recent airings of movies such as Surviving (ABC. February) provoked controversey. Though Dr. Katz was unable to view Surviving, he had comments on such programs. "If these programs glamourize or popularize suicide, then they are detrimental. Suicide is a problem. What should be the focus of these shows are coping skills.” One positive aspect of these shows is "that they make people nervous and make parents realize that they need to talk to their kids. Katz was very open and the audience responded well to him. At the conclusion of the April 24 meeting, he along with Vocational Counselor John Hall and Counseling Coordinator Becky Anderson, discussed the idea of a district checklist of students who could be potentially suicidal.

Cates Additional Wings, New ISC To Improve Facilities Construction for the new wings on Elsik's north and west sides is tentatively planned to begin in January, 1986, and end in the fall of 1987, according to Director of Planning and Construction Phillip Cappola. Elsik's corridors and classrooms accommodate 2950 students. By 1987 the district expects an additional enrollment of 1250, making the total number of students 4200. Cavitt McKnight Weymouth Inc., who originally designed Elsik. is the architectural firm contracted to design the new wings. "Along with the addition of new classrooms, new teachers will have to be hired," said Cappola. In addition to the new wings, a corridor on the second floor, extending from the North House English to the South House English has been put into consideration to help reduce student walking distance. The new ISC building will put Alief in the spotlight of alternative education reforms. Now that construction is underway, their program can perfect its methods in the area of alternative education. "House Bill 72 requires us to have a center, that if a student is placed into it, he or she will have the same choices of activities to choose from,” said Cappola. In October 1982. the district received $52.2 million on a passed bond referendum. “The new building should run $1,384,000 for the building itself, and $150,000 for the furnishings." estimated Cappola. The building is of concrete foundation and the exterior bricks will be an off cream color. The inside will be done in post-modern colors that include shades of blues and the mauves The woodwork will be natural and there are some windows in the counseling and waiting areas as well as the hall side of the classrooms.

South Social Studies teacher Theresa Brandt, born 1950, and husband of 12 years, Jim, were expecting their second child on October 1.

Math teacher Sonya Kennedy, born 1960, and her husband of four years, Mark, decided to start their family. Expecting their first child September 25, the Kennedys did not make any name choices or sex preferences, "As long as it’s healthy, we'll be happy."

"Steve would like a little boy - he has visions of little league and going to the Rockets, while I always wanted to have a big brother, so a boy would be nice for a first child." North Business teacher Kay Armstrong, born 1950, and husband of ten years. Rick, were expecting their first child June 17. "We didn't start trying to have a family until about five years back and then when we weren’t planning on it, it happened." laughed Mrs. Armstrong. "Because of my age. we had an amniocentesis done and we know it's a boy, but we can't decide between Bryan or Scott for his name." "Justin, four, is excited about the baby now but at first he was a bit leery because he was jilted out of some attention," said South German teacher Debby Neely, born 1957. Mrs. Neely and husband of six years, Charles, can not agree on names but the mother ". . . got her boy the first time around, this time, either sex is fine.” "I can't dance like I used to. I can’t touch my toes, but other than that I'm fine," giggled Revies Sponsor Cindy Martin, born 1952. Mrs. Martin and her husband of four years. Christopher, were expecting their first child the first week of June. "I’d really like a boy, Chase Patrick, because boys are easier to raise. Girls are kind of. . . well, let’s just say boys are more even tempered. If it's a little girl, Courtney Ann, then she'll be a dancer. Chris is gaining a playmate," explained Mrs. Martin. "Either way, it's going to be a musician and athlete." North Social Studies teacher Kay Stephenson and husband. J.B.. were expecting a baby June 8-10, but to their surprise, a 3 pound, 14 ounce boy. Zachary Fletcher, was born April 5. "We had recently bought a house and felt it was time to start a family." explained South Health teacher and Girl's Soccer Coach Kathy LeRibeus. "I carried the baby breech until the seventh month, then somewhere in the last week, he turned again. He was delivered by caesarian section. My husband, Duke, for three years, and I had wanted a boy real bad, but when they were preparing me for delivery, the nurse told me it was going to be a girl.” It was a nice surprise when Lance Andrew James was born February 18.

Public Information Officer. Many traditions were established under the leadership of Mrs. O'Donnell, who opened the doors of Elsik as its first principal in August. 1975 after eight months of intensive preparations. Sara Chapmen, Art Coordinator, who aught at Elsik during hose first few years aid. “Once in a ifetime perhaps, we ire blessed with mowing a very special person like Ann )'Donnell.” To the people at Elsik. that erson is Ann )'Donnell. "A school is judged is outstanding when ts students are active articipants. accomplishing honors, and its staff is competent and dedicated. "Mrs. O'Donnell explained. She has recognized and appreciated the individual worth of every person with whom she has worked whether it be staff or student. She helped nuture what was best for Elsik. Mrs. O'Donnell stated that without a feeling of pride and self esteem, true teaching and learning can not take place. Her mind and heart has always been open to anyone's problems, no matter how great or small, and in those times of trouble and self doubt, she was there to offer guidance, sympathy, and support. "Mrs. O'Donnell is supportive to administrators, teachers, and students, as well as being thorough in work, thoughtful. knowledgeable and having a high energy level.” said Sylvia Kelly. Senior High Program Director. Mrs. O'Donnell was with Elsik until 1981 when she was offered the position of Assistant Superintendent for High Schools. Since then she has moved up to Deputy Superintendent of Instruction where she sees that the teaching and learning process for all students and programs are accomplished throughout the district. She is the first woman to hold this position. Although she seems to think nothing of it. her former staff members are very pleased with the accomplishments she has reached. She began as a math teacher and became a department chairman. She was also an assistant principal for Hastings for 2 1 2 years. She thought her greatest accomplisment was the opening of Elsik as well as being a female in a male dominated world. In order to be a good administrator one must let people know you care enough to come and see what they are doing. Mrs. O'Donnell does this. She does not see herself in the role of superintendent but friends and past staff members do. Sylvia Kelly added. "Mrs. O'Donnell has the capacity to accomplish anything she undertakes. She is truly amazing in her abilities. A real super woman!" Elsik grew from a staff of 25 to one of over a 100. During the first year, thoughts of disbanding the school were discussed. That is until a group of students decided to attend a school board meeting and fight for their school. They believed that their school could make it. "Elsik’s first students developed a pride in school and respect for school and education. I think that this pride has passed from class to class.” she said. Although she was missed, she left a part of her with Elsik that touched many. She went on to accept new challenges and grow so she could offer even more to the education of young people. "During the ten years of Elsik’s existance, it has always been supported by its’ students, staff and parents. Even the years that Elsik’s wins were few. the stands were full. That says a lot about the school.” replied Mrs. O'Donnell. By Becca Ray. Reporter At Elsik’s dedication on May 2,1975. Jewell Elsik presents a picture of herself to Ann O’Donnell for the school.

Pre-prom activities included parties such as the ones hosted by Seniors Don Ballard and Tracie Rutherford and going out to dinner at fine restaurants such as Vargo's. The Great Caruso and The Rainbow Lodge. The students who did not eat dinner out chose to save money and eat from the buffet at the Hyatt. “This prom sure did out-do last year's. A better place and better food added to a better night,” said Senior Ray Schmidt. "I had a lot of fun. I was so excited about prom and dancing, that I didn't eat. I'm sorry that I missed the food because it all looked so good!” said Senior Chappell Wells. After prom, many people attended parties or breakfasts, then a large number of people headed toward the beach, where many beach houses had been rented. "The best part of prom was spending the night at the beach.” said Senior Brett Rogers. The rest of the weekend was then spent in the sun. The weather could not have been better. The seniors who were granted a skip day the Monday after prom, made the most of it. but this was the last year for Seniors skip days. "I was really nervous before prom, but afterwards when everyone was at the beach, things were more relaxed.

They went to Washington D.C. as a part of the Close-Up program from January 27 to February 2. The students stayed with students from Atlanta, Ga. and Kansas. The trip cost $875. This included everything except souvenirs. They attended seminars and workships, and visited points of interest such as the Capitol building and the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials. "It is so worthwhile. I can’t say enough about it! You learn so much, not only about government, but about other people too,” said Wendi. Other activities included a luncheon with Texas Representative Bill Archer, a formal banquet, and a dance for all the Close-Up members. "The trip was very educational, but we did have some fun too. It helps a lot with Government,” said Jonathan. Julie said. "The trip was awesome and well worth every penny I spent. Given the chance, I would go again!” "The best part of the trip for me was running around the Pentagon," said Wendi. Some seniors experienced government in a different way. The 1984 presidential election gave 18-year old seniors a chance to vote for the first time.

Sturm Money, Fun Motivate Seniors To ‘Kill’ Friends In TAG Game The varsity basketball game had just finished, and seniors were cautiously making their way out to their cars. All of a sudden darts fly and shouts of “I got you! You're dead!" were heard. This was all a part of TAG. The Assassination Game, a game played by a large group of Seniors. The idea for the game came from a movie called T.A.G. The Assassination Game and was started by Senior David Dougherty. David said. "I saw the movie on cable, but I was not the first one to start the game. It has been played at other high schools and even colleges." David ruled the game. A total of 35 Seniors played, and each one had to pay a $2 entry fee. The money was the prize awarded to the winner. To play the game, each player had to pick three name cards and shoot those three people with a play dart gun. Any person who was shot was then out of the game. When all three were shot and killed, three more cards were picked. The game was played from lunchtime until 10:30 pm on weekdays. 10 am until 10:30 pm on Saturdays and from noon until 8 pm on Sundays. No one was allowed to shoot a person inside the walls of the school. "It lasted a lot longer than I thought it would.” said David. The first player killed was Leslie Lawless. The last three players were Diane Shrout. Steve Hoffmann, and Robby James. On February 2. after the game against Memorial. Steve shot Diane in the parking lot and then went to Robby's house to wait for him. When Robby got home, there was a chase until he and Steve stopped on opposite sides of a parked car. where Robby shot and killed Steve. Robby was declared the winner of the game and was awarded $65. Steve, who came so close to winning the money, jokingly said. “I really felt like killing Robby!” "It was a lot of fun. I like to play games like this. And. I was excited about winning the money!” said Robby. Leslie Lawless commented. "The game is a lot of fun and it brings everybody closer together. It's fun to see everybody walking around with their dart guns watching out for anybody and everybody!” By L. Sturm.

Spiller Many Students Planning On U T On October 17. students and parents from Elsik and Hastings milled about in both cafeterias with intentions of planning for the future. Elsik has sponsored an annual college night ever since its first senior class. Representatives from institutions such as Princeton, Cornell, and UCLA come every year to “sell" their schools by way of pamphlets, slides, and lectures. Though the purpose of this night was to review the options for further education, the students also socialized. An obvious interest in the University of Texas was expressed when both sessions of the UT lecture in the North LGI were filled to capacity. UT’s popularity was further expressed by students' comments. “I want to go to UT because of its capacity for a well-rounded education as well as an opportunity to meet a lot of people and have a great time." commented Junior Michael Veomett. “I plan to go to UT because they are (among the) top ten in the nation as far as education goes." said Senior Teri Packard. “I like the Plan II Liberal Arts Program." specified Senior John Christ. “There are special accelerated courses not normally offered." Other choices for college varied. Junior Mary Villareal wants to attend Oral Roberts University “because it is Christian.” Senior Kelly Fordyce plans to go to UCLA. “It offers a wide variety of programs and is in a different environment. Then, of course, she added, "there's always the beaches and the guys!" Some had more definite plans. “I know the whole SMU campus like the back of my hand.” explained Junior Shannon Wimmer adding that he used to live right across the street from it. "I'm going to Rice." said Junior Noel Orsak. "I want to be in the Senior Architecture Building. Then I want to go to an American college in Europe and study international business. I want to be a fashion buyer.” By C. Vang. Reporter During both sessions of the UT lecture, there was "standing room only". The speaker discussed entrance requirements, tuition, ar boarding.

And on Friday, November 16th. thousands of fans flocked to the Dome to see the Rams clash with the Madison Marlins. "It’s more like community pride. I'm proud of our boys (Hastings' football players) for coming out to the dome tonight.” exclaimed Mr. Larry Gallagher, President of the Bearbackers. Though Elsik lost 35-0. the boys still had a lot to be proud of. "We came out of what we call death row - Spring Woods. Stratford, Memorial, and Northbrook - with a 3-1 record in district; things kind of fell into place after that," remarked Coach Sciba. After a short string of wins, the players did not expect to lose the Homecoming game to Spring Woods. Senior Doug Schaumburg said. "the score will probably be very close, but hopefully we can win as we did last year. As the game progressed, the teams kept the score tied until the final quarter. Just minutes into the fourth period. Spring Woods got its three points on a 34-yard field goal. The Rams didn’t capture their two points until there were merely seconds left to play. For the first time in Elsik's history. Elsik beat Stratford. In the first half, the Spartans held a lead of 3-0. but midway through the third quarter. Junior Curtis Larry, the district’s leading rusher, made a 5-yard scoring run. Then in the fourth, Larry capped the longest drive of the night with a one-yard dive over the center. But Stratford scored, and added the extra point with 1:14 left in the game. The Rams ran out the clock and won. 12-10. “We think you have a fine ball club and you proved it by beating Stratford rather impressively," said Memorial Mustangs’ Coach Wayne Hooks about Elsik's potential. "We have to stop Curtis Larry." Larry scored three touchdowns to lead the Rams to a 27-7 - a first time victory over the Mustangs. Memorial' only score was on a 9-yard scramble during the fourth period. For Elsik's third wi of district competitic Carril Cooks intercepted a Northbrook pass anc returned it 40 yards for a touchdown witf 1:30 left in the first half. The Rams held the Raiders' scoring one early touchdowr It came during Northbrook’s first possession of the game. Juniors Curtis Larry and Daryl Orsc accounted for the Ram’s first score.

As Elsik tied up two more victories, one over Westchester and one over Spring Branch, they moved into that last week of district competition. “It's a lot better feeling when you go into the last game of the season looking for your first district championship than yourfirst touchdown as in 1979.” stated Coach Sciba. Spring Woods and Elsik were tied for the district championship with 5-1-0 records. The night before the Bear game, the Spartans faced off with the Tigers and held them to a 5-2-0 record. That meant that an Elsik tie or victory over Hastings would make us 1. but no matter how the game ended, the Rams were still in the Dome. Senior Rusty Skinner announced. “We've all got Madison on our minds. We're worried about beating Hastings, but we can’t let it get in the way of the play-offs." Elsik scored only once against Hastings, in the 2nd quarter on a 36-yard pass to Darren Bell from Rusty Skinner, with a kick by Al Fuller. Hastings took the ball and scored to make it 7-6, Elsik's favor. But with 4 seconds left until the half the Bears kicked a 54-yard field goal to win the game 9-7. Trainer Scott Woodle described Sciba's technique. “He teaches 'em the plays, tells ’em how to win. and lets them make the choice.” Our guys chose to win. By L.

With their second winning season in a row. the junior varsity football team went six and four, five and two in district play. A 7-6 victory over Houston Lee, highlighted by an 80-yard punt return for a touchdown by Rob Rathgeber. got the team off on the right foot. “Many things contributed to the success of our team, but our defense had to be the key, especially our secondary. Not very many teams could pass against us and that stopped a lot of drives of opposing teams wanting to score.” stated Junior Rodney Allen. Another part of the team’s success was due in part to the play of runningback Randy Rios who picked up clutch yards when the team needed it. ’’Coach Copley brought the team together by instilling confidence and moral support for the players so that we always had a positive outlook on all the games,” said Junior Rob Atiqi. “Coach Copley was great. He really pushed us so that we could become the best players that we could be. Not only that, he also stood behind us 100% in whatever we did. and that really helped.” added David Phillips. Of course, every year the last game of the season is against Hastings. The Bears came into the game without a defeat in district play. Despite a great defensive effort by the team, the Bears were the victors on a 52-yard field goal to give them the win. putting Elsik second in district competition, preceded only by Hastings. By B.

Both Coach Fawcett and Coach Rayome started off feeling optimistic, but for the first game. Lee coaches informed them that Lee didn't have a sophomore team to play due to H.B. 72 eligibility requirements. So the coaches decided to reschedule the game against Katy in place of Lee. Four more cancellations caused the team to play only seven games all year. Even with these setbacks, the team D. Johnson gets ready to stop a Katy runningback behind really came through. “The boys have shown a real good effort this year." stated Coach Fawcett who was a great instiller of confidence. “Coach Fawcett is very confident in our ability to play football and that helps us players a lot,” stated Lee Smitherman. “If we didn't have all those cancellations we could have beaten Northbrook, but the boys kept a good attitude all year.” added Coach Fawcett. “The team really played together great," said Sophomore Mark Packwood. who tho line of scrimmage. Photo by B. Mitchell caught the winning touchdown against Brazoswood. Another reason for the wins was defense. “Coach Rayome is a great defensive coach, and he knows how to psych up for the games.” added Packwood. “The last game against Hastings was a tough loss for us. We just didn’t have any defense.” explained Lee about the loss. Hastings racked up twenty-nine points against the tough defense. Chris Samuel tries to ward off an opposing Katy tackier.

The new grade eligibility policy devastated the teams at the beginning of the season. At least one-third of the team was suspended weekly from play. According to A-team player Chris Martin. 'A lot of people were ineligible.” Still, the players did not let this ruin their concentration. "We just kept our minds on the team.” commented B-player Shane Blanton. "This team has a great deal of potential. The players have a lot of talent. They must Freshman A player Gary Garrison triumphs over a touchdown while his teammates congratulate him with fervor. Photo by L. Cates learn to dedicate themselves to hard work in school and football.” said Coach Bess. The A-team lost their first three games, but these were non-district games. Then the team surged back and won every one following except the game against Westchester. "We finally got our acts together." commented Javed Khan. They were the co-district champs with Westchester and a record of 10-3. The game against Hastings was the first victory the A-team has ever had against them. This exciting game was highlighted by an intercepted touchdown by noseguard Troy Moore. “We fought hard to win," said Chris Martin. The B-team had a good season achieving a second place district standing. The season was erratic though and they did not play their first game against Lee because Lee did not have a B team. They did not play Northbrook. Westchester, or Spring Branch for similar reasons. The three week lay-off that the forfeitures caused definitely affected the players performance against Hastings. "B messed up because of the number of forfeits and hadn't played for three weeks." said Coach Bess. By E.

Our record does not show it very well, but actually we had a successful season. We had a young team with only three seniors.” There were only four returning lettermen, and several players were out of games due to ineligibility, but Coach Brannan felt optomistic about next year. “We will be much stronger next year. We will have more returning starters, and some strong, aggressive new players." Junior Cindy Feakes commented, “We now know that our success doesn't have to show on the scoreboard, but it does show through our friendships and team unity." The best game of the season was unanimously voted as the first Hastings game. Junior Dawn Lyngaas exclaimed, "We all played to our best potential while the fans went wild and crazy !" Coach Brannan explained, “Both teams played well; there were many fans, and regardless of the outcome, this is what athletics is all about." They beat Hastings with scores of 15-7, 10-15, and 15-13. To commemorate this occasion, the team received blue and white balloons with "BUST THE BEARS" on them. Jenny Heisler was the only freshman to play on the team. She started out as a member of the freshman team, then moved up to J.V. She finally had her chance to play varsity when a player became ineligible. There were several key players on the team. Sherri Barrett and Dawn Langaas worked hard as the setters, and Cindy Feakes did a good job at middle blocker and hitter.

They have lots of potential and experience playing together. They have the determination to be the best.” The team had three setbacks.

We’ve been working since August, and the girls have shown a lot of dedication to the cause of winning district, I’m real proud of them,” said Coach Parke. The team got off to a strong start in August and with some exceptional running by Wendi Pena and Donna Thom. They finished as one of the top two teams in every meet. “Nobody expected us to go as far as we did, but we knew we could do most of the things we wanted to do.” stated Sophomore Cinda Shine. “I think dedication and team unity brought the team together so we could reach our goals for the year,” stated Wendi Pena. One of the big reasons that the team went so far is Coach Parke according to the runners. "Coach Parke is great at getting us prepared for meets. Not only does she get us prepared physically, but mentally as well, and that is real important for a sport like ours.” said Cinda. Wendi Pena and Donna Thom were rewarded for their great efforts by being named to the all-state team after leading their team to a ninth place finish in state. By B. Payne.

So on ebruary 15th, the jams met, played and ie Bears were efeated. But the lustangs beat the ams by two points nd were declared the hamps. The Hastings game as like fighting an Dhill battle and inning. Like Senior athy Humpherys. the ins were ‘‘all riled p” and “so excited", 'hen Hastings made le first score, it was ot expected that ley would never take the lead again. At the end of the first quarter, Hastings' Senior Danny Bagget made a shot that tied the game 14-14. The Bears fouled with 8 seconds to play in the half; Jeff Glasgow, with 2 extra points, made the score - Rams 35, Bears 30. "Jump high Jeff, get up off your feet," was the chant that opened the second half. Though the third quarter had a slow start, the Rams pulled it together to enter the fourth with a 47-45 Ram lead. With 5:30 left the score was once again tied and the audience, tense. Senior Jeff Glasgow broke the tie and the fans went wild. With 1:30 left on the board. Hastings got the ball and tried desperately to hold it and tie the game as the clock ran out. But Senior Tom Luce stole the ball, dribbled down the court, scored, and Elsik was up by four points. After a score by Senior Wade Watson, 59-57, the Bears, with 3 seconds left to play, ran down court, shot the ball, missed the point, and the Rams won it! The fans were crazed as they pushed their way to the end of the court to huddle around the team: “Number one! Number one!” As the second place district team, the Rams played Madison, the 16-5A champs. Coach Hartfiel said, “Even if we lose to Madison, we won't lose any pride.” Though Madison defeated Elsik at Hoffeinz Pavilion, 42 to 84, players like Senior Tom Luce had positive attitudes. “They're big and they're mean, but we're meaner." Playing the Madison Marlins gave the guys more to think about than just winning. “This is the chance we've been waiting for - to play a nationally ranked team.” explained Tom Luce. The experience built by a team of mostly varsity lettermen remained clear throughout the season. And even though Elsik is losing experience. Coach Hartfiel knew, “We'll build another winning team.” By Lisa Baroski, Sports Editor. Boys Varsity Basketball 774 Year Coach Leads 1st Ranked Team He’s a calm, serene man that always flashes a quick smile and hello to all who pass him in the hall- ways. Who could this be? None other than Davis Scarborough, the coach of the boys J.V. basketball and cross country teams. Born in Houston and raised in Richmond. Scarborough is a native Texan. In 1963 he began his freshman year at Lamar Consolidated. He was involved in basketball and golf, and lettered in each; three year letterman for basket- ball, four for golf. His excellent skills in basketball earned him the All-District title for three consecutive years. In 1966 he attended Stephen F. Austin State University and belonged to a fraternity. Pi Kappa Alpha. Although he excelled in basketball throughout high school, he was unable to play during college because of the stiff competition for height. Unfortunately his six foot two frame wasn't considered “height". However, he played with his fraternity in intramural fraternity ball. As for golf, he replied, “Golf is a tough sport and I was good in high school, but college golf is a whole other ball game." He has been coaching the J.V. team for four years and the team ranked 1st in district this season. “Basketball was my main interest in high school and college and I always wanted to coach." By N. Miller, Reporter Chris Brooks, 12, takes advantage of this open shot which contributed to a win- ning score of 74-49 against the Cy-Crook Cougars. Photo by K. Groves J.V.

Photo by K. Groves 78 Boys J.V. BasketballCenter David MacAfee Ranked First-Off to Varsity A victorious season brought the junior varsity team a rank of first in district with a 13-1 record. Another achievement was the fact that they won 16 consecutive games. Sophomore Tim Schumacher said. “We are playing together as a team very well - I would say that we are much better this season than last season.” Coach Scarborough stated. “We had two equally valuable players - Brock Wilson and Tim Schumacher.” Scarborough supported his decision with a list of qualities. Wilson led the team in scoring and rebounding and his experience has held the team together in many tight ball games. However, the playmaker and ball handler of the team all season was Tim Schumacher. Wilson started his basketball playing in the seventh grade and played for the Holub Hawks in the eighth grade. He was influenced by his older brother who got him interested in basketball. As for the future, he said, "I would like to play in college if a school offers me a scholarship.” Schumacher also played for the Holub Hawks, but his basketball playing began in the fifth grade when he played for the YBA. He does hope to continue playing on in college. Coach Scarborough added, "All of my players will be playing varsity next season.” The team is experienced and ready to progress. By N. Miller.

Basketball 79Team Unity, Defense Lead To 2nd In District As usual another one of the basketball teams came into the season with reservations about their success. “In most of the tournaments we entered we beat teams that we weren’t supposed to beat teams like Terry and Dulles,” commented Coach Parker. In the Willowridge tournament, the team beat Willowridge, Terry, and Dulles. In the Terry game, the team really poured on the aggressiveness to dwindle a ten point lead.

"I don’t think that one player can be given credit for the fine season that we’ve had, but players like David Johnson, Phillip Flores, Brian Witmen. Brian Badgett.

Prentiss was the lead- Freshman B Team Achieves District Champ; A Takes Fourth It was almost a Cinderella story. The Freshman A basketball team started out at the bottom in almost last place in district play; they lost five of their first six district games. Working together was a key factor of their improvement from a record of 1-5 to a final one of 6-8 and fourth place standing. "Teamwork turned it around,” commented Coach Rayome. Some of the outstanding players on the A-team were Clay Middleton, Rolin Visser, and Dave Atiqi. Atiqi was the leading scorer. The game against Spring Woods was one of the most memorable because. "They had beaten us by twelve points before, then we came back and beat them by one,” said Clay Middleton. The B-team similarly had an outstanding season. They lost their first district game to Hastings then returned to the courts with a vengeance to win the next six games. They ended up with an impressive 12-2 district record and a first place co-championship with Hastings. Again teamwork was the decisive factor. "We always tried to pull together,” stated Luke Prentiss. Luke Prentiss and Randy Brown were the outstanding players. Prentiss was the leading scorer. The most remarkable game was the last one against Hastings; the team won by ten points. Both the players and Coach Rayome had an enjoyable season. Although this was his tenth year coaching, he felt that his first year at Elsik was exciting because of "what can be done when young people work hard.” By E.

These three words are the key to the season that the varsity enjoyed. “You really need all three to have a successful team and year," said Coach Brown. After last year's 31-5 season, the girls were not expected to go as far. "We really had to work hard to get where we are.” commented Senior Saardia Johnson. Though the team started off on the wrong foot, 7-8. they finally turned it around in district. “I think the key to our turn-around was the return of Kelly and Saardia to the lineup after they had been injured." pointed out Coach Brown. Even with the slow start there were some high points in the slump. "One of the big thrills of the season was beating Dulles which is one of the top teams in our area.” stated Senior Kelly Armbruster. After four years of being the head coach for the team. Coach Brown has led the team to three play-off appearances in four years. "The thing that makes Coach Brown so good is that he keeps us in shape and makes sure we're in shape for every game. He tells us what we're doing right and praises us for it. which really helps us a lot.” said Kelly. After beginning district competition, the girls went on a 14 game tear. "We really blew them away. Beating Hastings had to be our highpoint of the season to that point. Nobody expected us to beat them because they were so tall but. we blew them out in both games which was great.” said Kelly. For the second season in a row the team went to the play-offs to meet Houston Worthing. The game pitted Worthing's speed and quickness against their rebounding and shooting. The speed and quickness won even though the team had a 23-21 lead at half-time. Worthing went into the fourth quarter with a 14 point lead and the girls just couldn’t come back from that far back. "We could have beat them, but we just got too far behind too fast and before we knew it we were down by fourteen and they were too good to catch up to.” said Saardia. By B. Payne.

Sophomore Karen Belson commented with a smile, “It was a great moment and we did it together as a team!" Belson also thought this season's team had improved. “Overall this season was better due to better skills as a team and with myself.” she explained. Some of the better skills include, as Junior Bizzy Deckard stated. “Hard work to prepare us for games and lots of dedication.” To get players prepared for a game, each works on their plays and avoids being overworked to save all their strength for the game. Right before each game a prayer is said to ease the players and hope for a safe game to all. Coach Schroeder decided that Bizzy Deckard earned the honor of being chosen MVP of the season because she had leadership, good ball-handling skills and outside shooting. Deckard's skills had her playing on the varsity team at times. This was one of her dislikes about this season because she didn't like being moved around so much. Coach Schroeder commented. “Some of the players have the potential for varsity spots next year.” By N. Miller. Reporter Girls J.V.

Coach Bodine agreed and felt that teamwork really helped to maintain a good playing level. The team’s attitude was neither all work nor all play, but a balance of the two. The practices were “a little serious and a little bit fun," commented Coach Bodine. “The practices involved drills and warm-ups,” stated Carrie Scott. Julie Heisler was the leading scorer for the team. Twin sisters Jenny and Shelley Misiak were also outstanding players. The game against Hastings was, by general assent, the most exciting game. The team played a consistent, well fought game in order to defeat the rival Bears. "We won by a lot of hard work,” explained Carrie Scott. “Because Hastings got a better draw, the other schools didn't think we could do as well.” explained Jenny Heisler. Having identical twins on the team sometimes created confusion with opponents. “Sometimes they would get real confused as to who would cover which one of us,” commented Shelly Misiak. The opponents did however, have ways to tell them apart. “They looked at our kneepads to remember who we were.” remarked Jenny Misiak.

Spiller Fuller Named MVP Injuries Affect Standings There was no stopping the varsity soccer team in district. After several injuries to top players, the team’s first place rank in district dropped to third. Leading scorer Chris Adkins was injured before district playoffs and it was a big disadvantage. Right Half Doug Wilson said. “He was our main scorer as well as our inspiration. His absence definitely showed up in the final game scores." Other injuries included Seniors Gregg Martin and Rajesh Rao; both sprained their ankles. Despite the injuries, most valuable player A.J. Fuller pulled the team through. He stated. "I am happy with my performance on the team. I scored more goals this season than last." Fuller has been playing soccer for eight years and is going to continue on at North Texas State University. Another skilled player, Doug Wilson, has played soccer for a total of 12 years. He replied, “My mother is of Spanish heritage so all of my relatives on her side got me to play.” The team's victories were numerous. During the Clear Creek tournament, the Rams defeated Clements (4-1), Fort Worth Southwest (3-1), and Katy Taylor (5-2) and finished 2nd in the 16 team statewide tournament. A tough, but well deserved victory was the Spring Woods game. After the first half, the Rams were losing 3-1. and a player had been kicked out of the game. Martin stated, “It looked pretty bad but the team united together and came back to win the game.” They won scoring two goals in the last 10 seconds of the game. Most of the players look up to Coach O'Keefe as their reason for excelling. Martin commented. “He is very effective in coaching. He concentrates on passing and shooting the ball, but his main goal is teamwork on the field." Wilson added. "He's a great coach and I loved playing for him.” “It was better than last year's because we scored more goals than any other team in the district,” stated Rajesh Rao. He also felt the team has greatly improved mentally, physically, and strategically. By N. Miller. Reporter During the practice session. Right Half Doug Wilson attempts to block a pass.

In its third year, the team moved from a 2nd place zone rank to first place with no defeats in regular season play. The only loss they sustained was at the Strake Jesuit tournament. “We had a Stalwart defense that held our opponents to less goal completions," explained Left Fullback Jason Smith. Key defensive players included Jason Smith. Goalie Mike Gray. Center Fullback Anthony Bannwart, and was led by James Culbertson. Culbertson was named to the All-Tournament team at the Strake Jesuit Tournament. The team only allowed two goals for the entire tournament. The defensive mid-field game that the team played created a barrier for opponents. It allowed for two defeats of their rival Hastings. The first game was the most memorable. "Both teams played their hearts out!” exclaimed Fullback Anthony Bannwart. David Huynh, leading scorer for the season, along with Karl Campbell and Steve Doria made the goals in the game. An Hoanh made an impressive penalty shot save also. “We played well throughout the game.” stated Jason Smith. Wendell Hearne coached for his year at Elsik. He chose soccer because the game is "fluid and fast-paced.” and demands a great deal of athletic ability and quickness. His intensive practices developed ball-handling skills and emphasized getting to the ball quicker. The team got along well and respected him. “He was a good laid-back kind of coach and a nice guy.” reflected Goalie Mike Gray. The season was an enjoyable experience for everyone. “We all had a great time,” said Anthony Bannwart. By E.

"I don’t think that the public is educated enough on soccer to really understand it. If they were, more people would come support us,” said Junior Karen Meder. The team experienced a tough season winning only two games all year. “Lack of experience was probably our biggest problem. For a lot of the girls it was their first year on the team, and for some it was their first year playing soccer at all," commented Senior Shelly Hopkins. Even with these problems they did defeat their rival Hastings. One thing that affected team performance was the absence of Coach Le Reibus due to maternity leave. "When Coach Le Reibus went to the hospital we were really left in the dark. There were three games that we would’ve probably won if she was there. It was really mass confusion," said Shelly.

Sophomore Janice Simms walked off with one 1st. The girls team won in dual competition, 111-56. while the boys lost. 67-104. to make an even record of 1 and 1. Senior Chad Pollock posted two lsts. and Sophomore Billy Hamlyn, one. Senior Art Waggoner won one meter diving. The girls went on to State, but with the injury of Chad Pollock, last year's state champion backstroker, the boys team fell into a dismal season. Also, fan participation was down. Coach Eugene Watson explained. "We have some of the best swimmers in the state of Texas, but we are lacking the students and faculty members to watch our meets. Well, it all pays off anyway, either through team recognition or simple self-satisfaction.” In the Bellaire High meet, the girls won again. 102-61, that is, 7 out of 11 events. Kim Lazorwitz. Cathy Boyd, and Penny Rosen were the leading scorers. The girls advanced to 4 wins and 1 loss, as the boys eeked by with an 83-75 victory to advance them to 2 wins and 3 losses.

Anxiety Leads To Higher Scores Than Expected When any team loses their star player, the team that follows may not be expected to do as well. But not in golf. "The loss of Jay Meyer really hurt us. but then again, the five returning lettermen had the experience and picked up the slack well," stated Senior Joel Mathiason. Those five golfers are Joel. Mike Molloy. Vic Mehra. Bill Payne, and David Smitherman. “The addition of Peter White. Jeff Glasgow. Bryan Bageant and Mike Marrioti all contributed to the success of the team, even though we didn’t start that hot.” explained Mike Molloy. "All the golfers felt the pressure of living up to Jay and that hurt us in the beginning, but we finally relaxed and came through in the end.” commented David Smitherman. The point of relaxation came at just the right time. The team shot an excellent 347 at their own tournament at Green Meadows. "That tournament came just in time for us to hype-up for district.” said Peter White. At the district tournament, which was held April 15 at the Stephen F. Austin course in Sealy, the team finished a disappointing sixth out of 18 teams. “The district tournament was terrible for a couple of us. but for some of the others like Peter, Jeff and Mike Marriotti it went alright.” stated Joel. After joining the team during mid-season Senior Jeff Glas- gow helped the team to a sixth place finish out of eighteen teams at the district tournament by shooting an 89. Senior Peter White hitsa nine iron at the team's practice sight, the Houston Golf Academy. After only one year on the team. Peter was selected as the M.V.P. by his peers.

The scores improved so much that the girls finished as high as third place in their own tournament at Green Meadows Golf Course. “Our tournament was great. We all just played super and it showed in the score we shot and the place we came in,” said Senior Debbie Hund. The district tournament wasn’t that successful for the team considering it was at the same course for the Alief tournament. They finished fourth with a score of 460 which was considerably more than last year's tournament. "We should've done a lot better but I think that we were too nervous trying to repeat the Alief tournament scores,” said Senior Terry Packard. By B. Payne.

This loss placed Elsik 3rd in district. The loss of several key players led to a lower ranking than the previous year. Graduating seniors, ineligible players, and other problems affected a downturn. ”We had two of our best players leave the team right before the district tournament," commented R.J. Harr.

Depth, Hogue Key To Success When the season started in September for the varsity girls team. Coach Gwynn was still looking for that one player who could make the team a winner. ‘‘I've had more depth on the team this year and that's one of the reasons that we've been so successful.” stated Coach Gwynn. “Some of the younger players have really come along great. With Coach Gwynn's help, they’ve become respectable tennis players.” remarked Michelle South. “The addition of Stephanie Hogue is one of the big reasons for our success,” explained Coach Gwynn about her newest player. Stephanie has been the most successful female player in the team's history, winning district and placing third in the regional meet. Stephanie has many great skills that led her to regionals, but according to her. one stands out above the rest. “The most important part of the game at my level now is the concentration. Most of the girls I compete against in the state are equally as good as each other but the ones with the best concentration win," said Stephanie. The team finished fourth in district, the best finish ever for a varsity girls tennis team. “This is the best girls team I’ve ever had. The girls are all easy to get along with and that makes it fun to coach,” commented Coach Gwynn. By B.

He was born in Houston and grew up in Alief. Glasgow began basketball his freshman year. He lettered his junior year and was named All-District Honorable Mention for two consecutive years. Glasgow will attend U.T. to major in engineering. His hobbies include golf and computers. Is basketball going to fit in his college life? Jeff replied boldly. "No !” He believes education is an important factor in succeeding and it comes first. "Future basketball players should concentrate an academics. Basketball is only an extracurricular activity." he said. Many of the games have been personal victories like the second Hastings game. "The final score was 59-57 and all the players had given the best they had." said Glasgow. As for winning and losing, Glasgow is really affected by both. When the team Kelly Armbrustor played bas- ketball for five years. When sho started in the eighth grade, she actually rode the bench the entire season. Since that not so memorable season, she has gone on to score 600 points and take down 410 rebounds her senior season. Photo by L. Cates wins, Glasgow is ecstatic. He stated. "I have a great high for about fifteen minutes and then I'm happy for a long time. However when we lose, I’m down, but I can bring myself up most of the time," he replied.

Miller, Reporter Bench Riding Finally Leads to National Honors Kelly Armbruster has become one of the most celebrated girl basketball players in the history of the school. Kelly got her start in basketball by playing for the Sugarland Junior High eighth grade team. "I wanted to play in seventh grade but I didn't make the team so I tried out the next year and made it then.” recalls Kelly. After a summer of hard work and lots of desire. Kelly got started on the freshmen team at Elsik. She made the varsity team the next year. Then after an injury, her comeback in 85 was a success, averaging 25 points and 14 rebounds a game. "She’s the best all around basketball player to come out of Elsik, and is a true example of what dedication and desire can bring if you stick with it,” said Coach Brown about his star player. For her hard work and dedication Kelly has received many honors. They include: Houston Post and Houston Chronicle player of the year, first team Texas Girls Coaches Association All State, selected to play in the Waco Hall of Fame game and in the North-South All Star game. Texas Association of Basketball Coaches first team, and finally, the USA Today All American Honorable Mention. "Coach Brown has been the biggest help in my career.

Sports Features 113House Bill 72 Disappointment After Coach’s 23 Years of Involvement Most Valuable Athlete It was like a McDonald Land ice cream cone - plain and vanilla. The 1983 football season ended with a 2-8 record. But as the Houston Chronicle predicted, “the Rams could blossom into a playoff contender.” and the '84 team went 7-3 - a Swenson's Deluxe Sundae Delight, with a cherry on top: Head Coach Mike Sciba. The varsity football team had a string of bonuses: 13 holdovers, a 9-1 JV team, and a new head coach. One big change that Coach Mike Sciba initiated was the change in the school’s athletic philosophy. He intended to “unite Elsik by stopping class-yells at pep assemblies: instead, we'll have team-yells.” Coach Sciba has been involved with the UIL for 23 years. “These days kids are too worried about getting a job and a car. When I was in school, UIL was very important because we concentrated on athletics. So. we had time for school, sports, and even dates." “I don’t think this legislation could have come about when I was in school. It'll take a few years for them to straighten it out. I think they went too far but can't just admit it. They'll eventually make the new legislation less strict,” said Sciba. His participation in UIL has included four years at Jones High School in Corpus Christi, one year at Wharton Jr. College, one half year at the U. of H.. one year playing and one year coaching at Texas A l. one year of coaching in Corpus, and 10 years at Elsik, where he is one of only four original staff members remaining. Since he became the athletic director, Sciba has made many changes. One of his MVP's, Senior Rusty Skinner, noticed. "There is more experience in the coaching staff. We are more organized. There is more want-to.” By Lisa Baroski, Sports Editor Football George Craig Curti» Larry Doug Schaumburg Rutty Skinner Volleyball Sherri Barrett Cro » Country Jim Henry Wendl Pena Donna Thom Basketball Jeff Keeno Kelly Armbrutter Soccer A.J.

Band 117Thanks To Judge, Entire Band Goes on Dallas Trip "The best thing about the band is the family atmosphere and the fact that we are all a team!" explained bass clarinet player. Sophomore Shelly Stuck. "The best thing about the band is the marching season because we have a lot of school spirit!” said clarinet player, Sophomore Dawn Massop. The 160 member band had its ups and downs with House Bill 72 introduced at the beginning of the second semester. This bill affected the band because many students who received failing grades were not allowed to participate in after school activities and could not go on the out of town trip to Dallas for the Six Flags band contest on April 26. These students were obviously disappointed, but not for long. The morning the band was to leave North House principal Mrs. Keeling announced that due to a restraining order on House Bill 72, the bill would not be in effect until summer. Thus, students who were considered ineligible were able to go to Dallas and had to call home to get clothes and money and had to find time to make up practice time they missed due to House Bill 72. "I was really surprised with the court decision because I could finally go to Dallas.” said flutist Freshman Paula Temple. “It was a big happy confusion since I had to call home to get clothes packed." she said. Apart from the Dallas trip, the band participated in the UIL Solo and Ensemble contest in which they won 54 medals. Junior Chris Young won the outstanding soloists award at that contest. He also entered the Sam Houston Jazz Festival. At the Foley's Thanksgiving Day Parade, the band was announced as the "Honor Band”, they participated in the Blinn College Marching Festival, the Alief Autumn Festival Parade, and performed at all the football games. "One good thing about the band is that it kept us really active in sports and school activities," said clarinet player. Senior Rachel Hardaway. The band members were very enthusiastic about the band and they tried to attend all the performances and competitions. "I have been playing the trumpet ever since the sixth grade and the band has made me more disciplined.” explained Junior Brett Freshman Ricky Allen and Sophomore Sun Lee march across the football field at the Westchester game wearing their new uniforms. Photo by V. Pai Jarrard. The band also raised money by having the Chili Supper, and selling cheese and sausage pizzas. "The band teaches me coordination and how to become a better person." said clarinet player Ricky Rivera. Added flutisl Senior Terry Cummings.

Their biggest competition, however, was the UIL solo and ensemble contest. “The most competitive thing to me is competing in all-state," said Violinist Philip Chen. “I became the sponsor because I wanted to be an orchestra teacher, and I wanted to see students make music." said Mr. English. The orchestra had thirteen members who played four The band plays for the drill team conducted by Senior Jay Grantam and Junior Chris Theofanidis at the Hastings game. Photo by V.

When we do practice, it is a lot of hard work,” said Violinist Lester Lopez. “We are all proud of playing in the orchestra and most of us will continue for the rest of our Elsik careers!” stated Celloist Grace James.

That's why we won in the San Antonio competition - we came together and worked hard!" said Revellier Sponsor Mrs. Martin. The Revelliers placed first in all events at the San Antonio competition May 9-10 including team, officers, and line events, which were of the highest prestige. They also won the sweepstakes and super-sweepstakes awards. Entries included three dances by the lines, three dances by the officers, and 200 other routines that won the best choreography in the entire contest. "I think that in San Antonio we proved a lot to the people here, and there, that we are awesome and that Hastings doesn’t hold a candle to us!” exclaimed Junior Tracy Kizziar. The Revelliers were not greatly affected by the House Bill 72. but Mrs. Martin said she “sees it causing future problems.” She stated. “Most of the girls can do well in all their classes except one. so that causes them to be ineligible.” ”1 joined the Revies to show spirit for the school and to show my talent for something I like to do.” stated Junior Wendy Arnold. The Revies practiced until 4:30 every weekday because they always had some event to practice for. Their involvement spanned from parts in Our Town, officer tryouts, the Autumn Festival Parade, talent shows, middle school performances, every football and basketball game, every available pep rally, to the six hour dance-a-thon for the American Heart Association. They also attended workshops at various high schools in Spring Branch. Alief. and Houston school districts. “I think that practice is the key to success and you have to put in as much as you want to get out of it. That’s what Revies is all about!” said Sophomore Monica Covington. Mrs. Martin became the Revelier sponsor because she was a dance major in college. She loved dancing and movement and the Revies were the closest thing to dancing in high school. Before she moved to Texas, she coached a drill team in Salt Lake City. Utah which placed first in Nationals. Ever since then she has become very involved in dancing. By T. Murdock. Reporter Senior Sue Lee. a three year Revie. practices her favorite Jazz routine.

On August 6 with six new members and a new sponsor, the squad traveled to Sam Houston State University. It was here that Julie Johnson was chosen to compete with ten other girls to go on to the All-American Cheerleading competition.

"We didn't go expecting to win, but why not go if you're invited? There were some squads there that were just out of this world." One of the biggest changes the girls experienced was a new sponsor. Mrs. Eggers. The first-time cheerleader sponsor revealed that sponsoring is "a lot more work than I thought, but it has its advantages: it can be fun at times." Junior Lisa Schultz explained the transition. "It was hard at first because she was new, but as the year went on, we all adjusted, and now she had become a part of us.” Besides a new sponsor, the squad also got new uniforms. They decided on a navy uniform somewhat like a sailor suit. Yet another change took place when pep-rally themes were to be discontinued. For luck, they taped a penny to their tennis shoes . . .

She also taught aerobics and helped at her mother’s fabric shop. Her summer vacation was filled with work at The Waist Basket and Buttons ‘n’ Bows and cheerleading camp. ■'Cheerleading is important to me because it gives me a chance to be myself.” explained Julie. Being a cheerleader, she was unhappy, but realistic, about the lack of spirit. ”1 figure in a school with almost 3000 people, everyone can't be spirited,” she continued, "The best thing about Elsik is the chance for involvement. There are so many clubs, sports, and organizations that everyone can have something to do, if they so desire!" By M. Brown. Organizations Editor Cheerleaders 125Student Council Faces Change Student Council made several revisions including changing its name, sponsors, and membership requirements. "The reason we’ve been Student Congress is because it was supposed to be run like a congress. We changed the name to Student Council because it is easier for the students to identify with Student Council," stated Senior Pat Regan. Student Council also had new sponsors, Mr. Pfeffer and Mrs. Stephenson. "I decided to sponsor Student Council because I wanted to be involved in a worthwhile activity which utilized the talents and ability of our students in the school and community,” said Mr. Pfeffer. Twelve members were elected in each class, and additional members earned their way by getting points toward membership. (1 point equals 1 hour). "It was supposed to be that way last year, but no one wanted to tally the points." explained Ex-president Pat Reagan. Student Council was not as organized as last year according to Junior Murphy Klasing. president-elect. "We needed a year to get re-organized because of new sponsors. We’ll come back strong next year!" In September Student Council held an Open House night with members guiding the tours, and in October they had a stadium clean-up. In November, members participated in the Alief Parade and had a canned food drive for the needy in the community. "I felt it was successful because a lot of people brought cans to help." stated Junior Mi Hwang. In December, the organization held a homeroom decoration door contest, but it was not very successful. "There wasn’t as much interest as we hoped, but it did create Christmas spirit in some homerooms." commented Sophomore Tracy Evans. In February, members held a SMILE Week to campaign against drug and alcohol abuse. It was an award for being the most outstanding SMILE Week at the state convention in Austin in April. "I felt it went over real well. We got more response on it than any other project.” stated Senior Blake Myers. April also brought a talent show and a walk-a-thon. "We did the walk-a-thon because it was a community project, and we help the community. I liked doing it because it was a good cause and it was fun,” commented Sophomore Chola Ghandhi.

Flores said with an air of sophistication. “Once you've become a member, you get the ol' gold card.” The card E.J. referred to was the gold American Express card his father lent him for dinner. The club was the Nu Eta Sigma chapter of the National Honor Society. On September 19. 63 juniors and seniors were initiated bringing membership to 136. Senior Ray Schmidt shared. “I was really disappointed not making it last year. For a while it made me try harder to earn a position in NHS. I'm estatic that I finally made it.” Proudly his mother added. "I told him that God has something special in mind for him.” One new requirement was that all members had to earn 25 service points a semester to remain in good standing. Mr. Porter put a ceiling on the number of points earned for each project to prevent members from "buying" their points by purchasing goods sold by the society. However, with a lack of service projects, due to hectic UIL schedules, the ceiling was lifted second semester. First semester the annual Gold C books went on sale, members helped with registration and participated in the Interfaith Coalition CROP Walk, cleaned the stadium after Homecoming, presented toys to and cooked dinner for the families at the Ronald McDonald House, baked cookies for the Big Brothers and Big Sisters, and adopted It takes Mrs. Laauwe, Ms. Frew and assorted members all three lunch periods to package over 1,000 cookies, six a bag, for Big Brothers and Big Sisters.

When I see myself (as great) I do bad -1 get discouraged.’’ Although Danna relied on her singing rather than superstition, she prayed before she sang to thank God for her talent. For First Soprano Annette, success at state competition was impeded by a bout with laryngitis only three weeks before. She was somewhat disappointed about the timing of her illness, but she was glad she got to go. First Tenor Tony Silva had a more relaxed attitude toward competitions.

Auditions were held and four main roles were awarded. Junior Annette Roesner and Freshman Rochelle Mitchell were chosen as Amahl's mother. Freshman Judd Davis and fifth grader Andrew Polisensky were chosen as Amahl. All four leads agreed that the long hours of rehersal were difficult.

Mrs. Ness Choir 133Theatre Arts Changes Image, Overcomes H.B. 72 “It's an actor's problem, deal with it,” is the answer from sponsor Mrs. Boone when the Theatre Arts Department is faced with a problem. The actors sought to overcome two obstacles. The first was creating a new image. The second was producing the UIL one-act play Dark of the Moon without letting House Bill 72 ruin the show. At the first officer’s meeting it was decided that Theatre Arts needed to become more visible. To do this, the club began supporting other clubs and athletics. Before athletic games, band concerts, speech tournaments, or after competition, Theatre Arts delivered good luck posters or “Theatre Arts Spotlight” congratulations. Chris Everett contended. “We've gone from being an elitest group to supporting others, and that support has come back.” “House Bill 72 has had a tremendous effect on us. It’s been frustrating for students and Mrs. Boone,” said Chris Everett. In the middle of Dark of the Moon two students had to drop out. Chris explained. “You’re so dependent on the other people, you become a family. It doesn’t run on individuals. Despite the problems, Dark was chosen to advance from district to area. At district. Junior Chris Lundquist was chosen Best Actor, Seniors Shawn Fields and Tamiko Washington and Freshman Steve McMillan were awarded All Star Cast. Senior Mike Mullen was awarded Honorable Mention. At area, Shawn Fields and Chris Lundquist were awarded All Star Cast and Tamiko Washinton, Steve McMillan, and Mike Mullen were awarded Honorable Mention. The play, however, did not advance. Sophomore Shannon Collins, commented. ”1 was disappointed. I felt like we put so much work into it and we got really close." Theatre Arts produced two other shows. On October 11 and 13. Our Town played. Senior Penni Siemens, historian, said. “Thursday was a full house and Saturday had a crowd larger than expected because of the rain.” Drama III and IV classes produced Daydreams. May 6-10 was Thespian Initiation for 13 initiates. Initiates were required to memorize 12 lines At rehersal for Dark of the Moon, Freshman Steve McMillan tells Seniors Jason Martinez and Penni Siemens that John wants to marry their daughter, Barbara Al- len, and save the family from shamo.

The theme, death, was borrowed from the image of the mask the cast and crew of Dark gave Mrs. Boone. Mrs. Boone said Theatre Arts was appealing because, “There’s a feeling of accomplisment and a very positive atmosphere, even in the worst of times.” By M.

For the first time, the National Forensic League (NFL), or speech club, declared independence from Theatre Arts. As a result, Mrs. DeLecour appointed a board of directors. Seniors Missy Brown and Penni Siemens were chosen co-presidents with Juniors Ginger Winstead and Scott McFarlane as council members. Unfortunately, NFL only participated in three tournaments. The first was at Bellaire High. Freshman Tara McGrath. Sophomore Eric Hudson, Scott McFarlane, and Missy Brown advanced to semi-finals in extemporaneous speaking.

At this tournament, Freshman debators. Tara McGrath and Duk Tran underwent initiation. Scott McFarlane and Hastings' Serini Medi convinced them to ask Hastings' Joel Schwartzberg why people call his father •'Stumpy.” In a fit of imitated anger Joel yelled, "I can't believe you asked me that! My father is a paraplegic." Later, the two were told that Joel’s father is normal. The last tournament was held at Memorial High. For the first time, two beginning debate teams advanced to quarter- finals. Senior Lorraine Noone and Scott McFarlane went 5-1. and Missy Brown and Penni Siemens went 4-2. They placed in the top eight of 70 teams. Eric. Lorraine, and Scott went to extemp semis. Penni and Freshman Sherine Thomas to poetry semis.

There's a lot of work involved." said Rampage Reporter Tracy Stinson. By second semester, both staffs were caught in a whirlwind of excitement. The Texas High School Press Association ranked the Ramblings 6th, and Rampage 11th in state; and Texas Press Women awarded Rampage Editor-In- Chief Audra Sanchez 1st in state for an Editorial and 3rd in state for a News Story. Rampage Copy Editor Barbie Neyens placed 1st in state for a Feature. "We really didn't expect to do that well, so it was a wonderful surprise.” said Ramblings Editor Rae Rabe.

The Rampage achieved an Award of Distinguished Merit making them one of the top papers in Texas. Photographer Lee Cates placed 1st in state for his football photograph, and 2nd for his portrait of Shannon Collins. Rampage Editor Audra Sanchez said, "We knew our paper had improved from the year before, but it was hard to predict what the judges were going to think. When they called out our name it seemed like all the hard work we had Dut in finally paid off.” "Mrs. Ritter is an excellent teacher If it weren't for her there wouldn't be a staff. We’re like a big family.” said Rampage Ad Manager David Brantley. "It’s the only class I can have fun in. You get to do your pages the way you want to do it.” commented Ramblings Ad Manager Noelle Miller. The memories these two staffs shared will last forever.

Under direction of Mrs. Leribes, health teacher and soccer coach, FCA members took turns preparing lessons for meetings from the Fellowship of Christian Athletes study guide. These lessons were particularly helpful to the athletes because they taught the importance of keeping God before success. According to Treasurer Public Relations Head Julie Johnson fall membership was low because, “It's been a busy season.” Membership grew slightly later. Because membership was small and the meetings took place at member’s homes instead of at school, members relaxed and responded emotionally and often supported each other and gave each other advice. Mrs. Leribes, who had sponsored Girl's FCA for two years, offered support and helped with organizing lessons until late February, when she had her baby. Seeing the need for a new sponsor. Mrs. Pena, President Wendi Pena's mother, offered to be the new sponsor. Usually FCA sends its officers to FCA convention.

Attendance peaked at over 50 people. The membership size surprised many people. Senior Hollie Fowler commented, "Without SFC I would have never known how many Christians I was surrounded by." Mrs. Lewis explained that. "Coming from a year that’s been suppressed, students take charge." Attendance slumped from November to January. Original plans for picnics, church tours, and Christmas carolling were cancelled. To revive membership, efforts were concentrated on re-organization and advertising. Senior Terry Cummings was appointed social chairperson to publicize upcoming events and speakers. Sophomore Lee Koch was made librarian and compiled a list of Christian books and albums members agreed to lend out. Besides Bible study, the club ordered sweatshirts, entered a band in the talent show and helped Hastings start a SFC. Efforts to begin SFC at Stratford failed due to a lack of administration consent. Sophomore Wing Ng was the designer of the SFC emblem. The word "Yaweh" on their shirt means "God.” The Jewish faith considers the word, god. so sacred that they spell it "YWH" so it would not be pronounced. Later vowels were added.

This was the first time the club did this and it was successful. The club also visited the Houston Museum of Fine Arts and then had a picnic in Hermann Park in September as well. "It was interesting. I really enjoyed seeing other people's art work.” said Senior Jamie Haines. In October the club face-painted, a new tradition that began last year. Held on the 31st, club members painted various designs on students as well as teachers. Explained Senior Ron Crisostomo. "It wasn't as much as a turn out as last year, but it was fun. We still raked in the bucks!" The art club proved they had school spirit by making bear-buster signs in November for the Elsik-Hastings game to help students get more enthused for the game. December was another busy month. Starts Year Screening The club held a cookie decorating contest and they made banners for Christmas and hung them in the North and South cafeterias. Second semester members made paper roses for the elderly at several nursing facilities for Valentines Day. and in April they made Easter baskets and coloring books to give to a children’s hospital. " I really like doing things like that. It's a neat idea,” said Senior Cindy Elley. The club ended the year with a picnic in May. "The art club is definitely just for fun. We met every other Wednesday and would work on projects or discuss activities,” explained sponsor Mrs. Hook. "Members don't have to be in art classes to join," she added. By D.

The French Club had some kind of French-oriented activity every month. Members attended the French movie Les Comperes, a picnic with the other foreign language clubs, a trip to the Renaissance Festival, a Christmas party at a students’s home, a trip to Jones Hall to see The Bejart Ballet, ice-skating, and a French banquet at the Magic Pan in the Galleria. The club also made and sold creampuffs to the school in March and crepes in February. Competition was strong in French Club. Not only did they compete with Latin Club in a friendly game of volleyball, but they also played the Hastings French Club at the end of the year. ‘‘The club is open to anyone interested, and not just to French students," said President Thanh Ho. "The French Club is known to have more students involved in activities," remarked Mrs. Hogshead, the French Club sponsor for eight years. "We had over thirty students from the French Club alone attend the Renaissance Festival.” By D. Hund.

The club had never before attended the convention, which was a weekend-long series of tests covering all different categories of Latin, along with physical competition in their own small version of the Olympics. "The club is usually pretty competitive toward other foreign language clubs.” explained Ryan Trainer, treasurer. "But we also get along well with them, like at the Renaissance Festival. That was a blast!" All members looked forward to their yearly visit to the festival. Other activities a little bit closer to home consisted of stadium clean-ups, after school meetings, picnics, and softball games with other clubs. "In the three years that I’ve sponsored Latin Club,” said Mrs. Harris. "I’ve noticed a great increase in the number of members and the amount of enthusiasm in the club's activities. The students are interested in the Latin Club because of their interest in classics and the desire to have a good time.” stated Mrs. Harris. By D.

The student body has become more diversified and the percentage of ethnic minorities continues to increase. Also, the number of single parent families increased from 21.7 million in 1970 to 35 million in 1983 in the U.S. At Elsik. 32% of all students live in a single parent home. Single parent families included many of Elsik’s students as fifty percent of all marriages in Harris County ended in divorce. With the economic “crunch.” many students either felt they needed to or were forced to seek employment. As a result, many saw their grades drop or were no longer able to participate in extracurricular activities. As time passes, not only Elsik. but the Alief community has changed. The influence of Houston's rapid growth and urbanization in the late 1970’s will be felt forever.

Waiving the traditional Adam’s Mark location, the prom was held at the new Hyatt Regency West. Having worked hard since their freshman year, the class raised almost $15,000 by the middle of the year. Major fund-raisers included the Freshman Sale. Sophomore Mug Sale, and Junior Cookie Sale. The Seniors also sponsored the Homecoming dance. Vice President Julie Johnson said, "We expected to break even on the dance, but made over $500." Also. $3300 was earned at Powder Puff. Earnings increased by selling programs at football games and donuts before school. The officers not only contributed to the success of the class, but were active in other activities too. President Kim Adams was a varsity cheerleader, a member of the track team. GSL. and FCA each for two years. She was also on the Superintendents Student Advisory Council. Outside of school.

Secretary Tracie Rutherford was an officer each of her three years as a Revellier. She was also secretary of NHS one of her two years as a member. Class sponsors Sheri Nusynowitz and Sharon Heintschel dedicated much time to helping the class. "It’s a lot of work." said Mrs. Heintschel. "But it’s really fun," added Mrs. Nusynowitz.

Exemptions Lost “It’s unfairlThey only started senior exemptions two years ago, and now we can't have them,” said Senior Richard Rennison. Although this was not the only change in education under House Bill 72, it was the most disappointing for seniors. Senior exemptions began in May 1983, and were used by the classes of '83 and '84. However, this was not the only privilege lost. Seniors could no longer enjoy traditional Senior Skip Days. In the past, the skip days were the Friday before and the Monday after prom. It was not a total loss, though, since the seniors were allowed to take early exams and had the last few days off. Senior Julie Johnson said, "I think Seniors should be allowed certain privileges, but I realize the school cannot do anything about it. I wish we still had the privileges, though.” Seniors still had the privilege of off-campus lunch. "It's great that we can still go out to lunch, because it's a relief from the monotony of school.” said Senior Mike Trost. Although most Seniors were disappointed, others such as Jeff Glasgow said. "I don't really mind.” Senior Hoopsters R. James, T. Luce, T. Kite, J. Keene, J. Glasgow, M. Middaugh and M. Beckor demonstrate senior awesomeness.

To Ana, life in the US proved to be very different from life in Spain. "The school system is different in Spain. The students stay in the same room while the teachers change. They are also more strict. The student teacher relations are more relaxed here, and the work is easier," commented Ana. Ana’s favorite subjects were math and science. Her plans after high school included going to college. By L. Sturm, Senior Class Editor 172 SeniorsFordyco, Kelly Forestall, Shawn Fowler, Hollie Foxworth, Tangela Frazier, Courtney Fuller, A.J.

Seniors Manisha Kavadi and John Christ became a part of this 13% when they received an achievement award in writing from the NCTE. At the end of their junior year, Manisha and John entered a NCTE contest submitting a piece of their writing. They also had to write, in one hour, an essay on the "American Dream." using two literary references from their own knowledge to support their own ideas. Over 7000 students were nominated for this award. John and Manisha were among the 850 who won. Manisha commented, "It's neat to win because I’ve gotten letters from congressmen like Ron Paul. Plus, our names were in the Advocate. ” "I felt as though I had achieved something worthwhile," said John. Receiving this award was nothing new to them. Manisha placed eighth in region in the National French Contest, and received the rank of Magna Cum Laude on the National Latin Exam. For UIL ready writing, John placed first at school and seventh in district. They also both received several achievement awards in school. Both students were enrolled in AP English and were also members of the National Honor Society for two years. College was in the future plans of both students.

Sponsors Betsy Lancaster Cates and Nola Graham pause for a Junior Officers Anticipate A Terrific Prom With only a year away from the Senior Prom, the four class officers and two sponsors met twice a month to discuss fund-raising activities. When meetings were cut to once a month due to Junior Class Sponsor Betsey Lancaster's pregnancy. The officers did their best to encourage the juniors to help raise more money for the prom. The cookie sale and sale of Powder Puff programs helped raise the total to a little over $11,000 by December. Vice-President Brock Wilson said. “Because of the junior’s participation, we're going to have a good prom. There is no limit to how much money we can make. It'll go to a good cause." By S.

This cable channel devoted 24 hours a day to music videos and specials. Since MTV began three years ago, its popularity soared. One reason for this was that the viewer does not have to be stationary while watching. ”1 just flip through the channels, and if I see a video I like, I’ll watch it.” said Junior Heather Best. Junior Ryan Trainer believed that its popularity was due to the “unusual music that you would not normally hear on the radio.” Some examples were Siouxsie and the Banshees, Depeche Mode. Echo and the Bunnymen, and Blancmange. For a video to catch Junior Lea Elepano's eye “it has to be a good song, with a good beat.” Some of her favorite bands to watch were the popular pop-dance bands Culture Club, Wham!, and Australia’s Eurogliders. Weekend programming on MTV brought The Saturday Night Concert and Sunday Special. The viewers were led all over the U.S. and Europe to preview upcoming and established groups. “Out of all the Sunday Specials, I enjoy watching Liner Notes, London Calling, and The Cutting Edge,” commented Junior Andrea Lewis. Unlike the radio, this music medium may be viewed as an artform. Students found watching their favorite groups more exciting than just listening to them. Edie DeBruyn commented. “When you hear a song on the radio, the accompanying video changes how you feel when you see it.” Rogan Brunet confessed, “If the guy who sings the Popular The Wild Boys Wake Me Up Before You GoGo Glamorous Life Let’s Go Crazy Some Guys Have All the Luck I Feel For You Out of Touch Like A Virgin Cruel Summer The War Song I Just Called To Say I Love You Sunglasses At Night Desert Moon Jungle Love You Take Me Up Do They Know It’s Christmas We Are The World Private Dancer Rock-n-Roll Party All Night Keep On Running Still Loving You Coming Back I Can't Drive 55 Hot For Teacher Too Young To Fall In Love Round and Round Satisfied Man We’re Not Going To Take It Heaven's On Fire Turn Up The Radio Born In The U.S.A. Run To You Panama Distant Early Warning California Girls Sussudio Dancing With Myself song is good-looking, I’ll like the song, regardless.” Although MTV was loved by many, it had its flaws. Anyone who was exposed to it. knew that it could be addicting. Ryan Trainer confirmed, “It's non-motivating and it wastes time.” But this flaw did not bother the average MTV junkie. His response to the negative aspects? “I want my MTV!” By S.

The rings ranged in price from $110 to $200, but despite the high prices, sales were up. After three long months, the juniors received their rings on December 12. "I felt I was a step closer to finishing high school," said Junior Chris Theofanidis, after he received his ring. Junior Noel Orsak said. "I thought it was a waste of money.” Likewise went for Junior Lana Brown who said. "It wasn't worth it." In spite of the mixed reactions, juniors went through the ritual of ring turning, and setting aside the last turn for that "special someone." When asked who would be the last person to turn their rings these juniors replied; Janet Jessen - "Mark Streck", Lana Brown - "George Baker", Valerie Card - "Patrick Corcoran”, Joel Parker - "Kathy Brown". Tracy Geise - "John Perez", Murphy Klasing - "Lisa Farney", Flo Linderman - "my ex-boyfriend Earl Stokes”, Rogan Brunet - "Steven Kniznur", Mark Henderson - "Patty Reagan”, and David Kuehn replied, "Tracy Suder.” Although many of the juniors will probably toss their rings in a box after high school, the memories of "ring day" will last forever.

Shannon Collins has acted in eighteen Theatre Under the Stars plays and thirty-five commercials. "I prefer plays because live performances are much more personal.” "My most embarrassing moment was when I was in the fourth grade playing Michael, the little boy with the teddy bear, in the TUTS production of Peter Pan, and while saying a line my retainer fell out of my mouth!" "I would most like to co-star with Al Pacino because I think he is a wonderful actor, or maybe Dudley Moore because I think he is a terrific dramatic actor besides being a character actor and comedian." Shannon goes to New York every year to see the current shows on and off Broadway, to visit friends, two of whom are currently in Broadway shows, and to learn more about the city because she plans to attend college at New York University. "The most important thing in my life is the love and well being of my family and friends.” "My major career goal is to graduate from high school, move to New York where I'm hopefully going to college and pursue a career in the theatre.” By R.

German, Math and Science Club. Sophomore James Culbertson holds first chair in Orchestra, and leads the other cellos. “I started playing around the age of nine because my brother played the violin, and I didn’t want to play the same thing, so I just started playing the cello.” Most of James influence was from his mother who plays the piano and clarinet. ”1 was never forced to keep playing by my parents, I chose to continue." His brother, Tim, plays violin, piano, and trombone. His father, reverend of Canterbury United Methodist, and his whole family, support his music. James is also a member of the Houston Youth Symphony, an organization he tried out for with a live audition. He has traveled to Toronto, Montreal, and Ottowa Canada with the youth symphony. Their major piece of music was Firebird Suite by Stravinsky. James has always loved symphonies. His idol is Pablo Casalas. His favorite composer is Bach. His favorite piece is Jesus Joy of Mans Desiring. Whenever possible, he attends the Houston Symphony. With grades of A’s and B's James is well on his way to being a lawyer, but still wants to play music as a hobby. James hasn’t forgot the person that has helped him get where he is now. “I’ve known Mr. English since I was in seventh grade and he has always influenced my musical career." By R. Harris.

Can I find my way to all my classes? Please! Don't let anything go wrong today. No. not today. I hope this bus gets me to school on time. I’ve got to find the theater, then some other rooms. Wow! What a trip. The kids that go to Hastings ride this bus too. I wonder what it's like at that school. Oh god, if you’ve ever been with me, please let it be now! This school looks so big I know that I’m going to get lost. That sure was a long ride. Maybe it just seemed that way. I'll just follow these two new-wavers; they seem to know where they are going. I don't think I should ask anyone - they’ll probably just laugh. I'll just play it cool. Maybe no one will notice me. Two cafeterias?! I can tell right now it's going to be a long day. I hope I can meet some new people soon. Oh, no! I think I’ll just die if someone calls me "fish”. They should remember that they were "fish" once, too! Maybe one day I'll understand why the North House is red and the South House, green. Personally, I like red better, but I'm going to be stuck with a green locker. I wonder if there are a lot of people with pictures of bands in their lockers. I hope my locker is in a convenient spot. I can see running to one of my classes, and one time tripping and falling. Would that be embarrassing! I probably wouldn't come to school the next day. and find another way to get to that class. I hope that I get some nice teachers that let me chew gum. I don’t believe it. There are some people I actually know. Boy, have they changed. I don't know whether I want to associate with them or not. Ah. shucks! They were pretty good friends last year. They probably don't even want to be seen with me. They've seen me. Play it cool. . . Maybe school won't be so bad after all.

Donna's running "career" started in third grade at Ridgemont Elementary in Spring Branch. "I just started running and loved it!" exclaimed Donna. She only ran one meet a year until she moved to Alief. "Alief didn't offer relays in elementary school," remarked Donna. As a result she did not continue running until she entered Albright Middle School. While at Albright Donna ran 16 meets coming in first in district on the junior high level. "She really likes running. On the weekends we would go running whether it was in season or not," explained Freshman JV Cross Country runner Renee Williams. Donna played basketball in seventh and eighth grades at Albright. She also played on the girl's Freshman Basketball team. She ran 11 meets including district, regionals, and state. In district, Donna placed second with a time of 11:56 just behind Senior Wendi Pena. In state competition. Donna placed sixth with a time of 11:54 coming in before Wendi. Donna’s favorite classes included Math with Mrs. Hatley and American History with Mrs. Autry. "I love any kind of math and will probably take it throughout school." stated Donna.

In seventh grade Natalie was a cheerleader. This influenced her to try out for Rockette Ram. Rockette Ram gives her the chance to enthusiastically demonstrate her support for the school. "The students of this school have a lot of spirit unlike some other schools; and when I tell some that I like my school, they think I'm crazy." claimed Natalie. Natalie was the Freshman Class president, she participated on the freshman volleyball team. Student Council, Students For Christ, and Drill Team Training. Natalie came to the U.S. from South Africa when she was nine and has traveled through Europe, to Israel and Hawaii. Natalie added, "I really love high school but also realize that it is hard work.” Natalie also really liked all of her classes because they presented a challenge. Biology was among her favorite classes because she likes to learn about the way things work. At the beginning of the year she wasn’t sure whether she was going to like her teachers because "they all had different ways of teaching", but decided she liked all of them. She would like to make straight "A's" in school because she wants to study law. possibly at the University of Texas. By Felicia Wasylina.

English Department Head Mrs. Kay Moore has applied to the National Council of Teachers of English, to make Elsik a center for excellence. “The goal for the department is mainly to get recognition for both the students and teachers. We had more students enter and win essay contests." explained Kay Moore. Mrs. Moore was born in McKinney. Texas, a small town outside of Dallas. In high school. Mrs. Moore was in NHS. “We didn’t have sports for girls, otherwise I would have been on the track team." she said.

So I thought about what I liked about being an administrator, and that was talking to the students and their parents about their problems. Eventually, I decided that I wanted to be a counselor.” explained South House Counselor Charles Fitzgerald. At that same Catholic school he spent six years teaching English to sixth and seventh graders before becoming principal. He also taught English to sixth graders at Olle Middle School. Mr. Fitzgerald was a counselor at Alief Middle School for three years and at Olle for one year. "I needed a change. I had spent 15 out of my 16 years in the education field with junior high aged students. I have found that the high school students are more sophisticated and can After belngacounseloron the junior high level, Mr. Fitzgerald decided it wastime for a change. Photo by B. Mitchell JV football Coach Pless, and a new sophomore football and JV baseball. Coach Bess, pride themselves in winning teams. Photo by K. Groves find the words to discuss their problem unlike the junior high students," revealed Mr. Fitzgerald. "The two factors that influenced me in becoming a counselor were reading in psychology and human growth and development; and secondly, my friends told me that I was an intentive listener.” "From counseling I have received two things, longtime friendships with students and staff, and the satisfaction of playing a role in the student’s life." If Mr. Fitzgerald wasn't a counselor, he fantasizes himself as a writer of novels and plays. "Part of me never fully developed the ability to write. My teachers in high school and college told me I had the talent. I just never disciplined myself to do it." Mr. Fitzgerald still has many outlines of short stories and plays he wants to write. Mr. Fitzgerald is a native Houstonian and attended St. Thomas High School. He later attended the University of St. Thomas for his bachelor’s degree in English; Sam Houston State for his teaching credentials; and the University of Houston for his masters in guidance and counseling. While in high school Fitzgerald swam and participated in speech and drama. He was voted best actor twice, made the Honor Roll, and when he was a senior, the faculty voted him as one of the best top 10 in high school. His hobby was gardening. He claims his yard was mostly a giant flower bed. but he plants vegetables, too. He loves to read, and his favorite book is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, a Russian immigrant. Fitzgerald also enjoys traveling. He has been all over Southwest Texas. California. Mexico, Arizona, and Louisiana. By Felicia Wasylina. Reporter Faculty 227From Translator to Teacher Muckleroy Experiences Life To The Fullest At one time she wanted to be a translator for the government. But Mrs. Jean Muckleroy. 30 years ago. changed her mind and became a business teacher. "It was more practical to be a business teacher because if I were ever out of work, I could probably get an office job.” explained Mrs. Muckleroy. She also wanted to be home with her children. Mrs. Muckleroy has been married for 30 years to Roland Muckleroy. They have two sons. Ted. a Dallas contractor, and Jeff, a senior at the University of Texas. Mrs. Muckleroy and her mother had a Mrs. Muckleroy's family con- sists of Roland. Randy, Brenda. Ted. and Jeff, a senior at the UT. close relationship, and started teaching at the same time. Her mother taught English in Nacogdoches. They also went on a trip to Europe visiting France and England. She loved to travel and has also been to Mexico. She enjoyed seeing if her Spanish was accurate and if she could understand it. Mrs. Muckleroy's interests included classical art and history. While in Europe, she visited museums, galleries, and cathedrals. She attended art and history lectures at the Fine Arts Museum, and for history lectures, she attended meetings for the Sons for the Confederacy at the Briar Club. "The art lectures are very interesting and there’s something new to learn about each one. Instructors would show an art slide, and tell what was happening in the artist’s life and the country around him. They would also talk about wars, economics, and leaders.” explained Mrs. Muckleroy. She planned on returning to Europe when Jeff graduates from the UT. He also wanted to go to law school. "I seriously considered being an interpretor in high school, because I love to travel and meet people, but I married young and it just didn't seem practical and the teaching business did." Mrs. Muckleroy taught typing. Gregg Shorthand and Notehand. "I don’t have a favorite class to teach, each one has something different about it to make it interesting,” said Mrs. Muckleroy. "I feel students should be aware of their potential because each one has something unique about them whether they realize or not.” "The most rewarding thing is helping the students, not just in the classroom but also to realize they need to learn to love themselves so they can learn to love others." expressed Mrs. Muckleroy. She finds it interesting when she runs into former students. She taught Art teacher Mrs. Graham at Westbury High School. Mrs. Muckleroy also attended administrative classes j with South House Assistant Principal Frank Jarrett. She gave him credit for bringing her to Alief. “Alief is one of the | best school districts in Houston and students have very good reasons to have pride and spirit in Elsik and they should show it!” By F.

'Jew electives were banned for 1985 :ourse selections. On 'Jovember 16. the Computer Math Department proudly displayed their new computer room. “When we first moved from Hasting's all we had were eight computers, and a 8 x 12 foot computer room." explained Ms. Linda Lewis, computer math instructor. Now they have three rooms, one. for computers, and two on either side for instruction, and six more computers. The counselors also received new computers, one for each House. The system was located in the waiting room of each office. “What we will do is teach the students to work it themselves so they can look up their career and college curriculums.” explained North House Counselor Mrs. Thorton. The Business Department had 15 computers and by the end of the year received 20 more. The Accounting classes used them briefly 2nd semester, but Accounting, Advanced Typing. Recordkeeping.

There won't be a need for new business teachers because the teachers that are going to teach new classes, such as Data Processing and Intro, to Computer Programming, took night school preparation. “There will be wonderful benefits and more student enrollment in our department because of the computers. I see greater flexibility in course content offering, and the student exposure to computers will be greatly enhanced as well as better student preparation for business and society." said Mrs. Armstrong enthusiastically.

These were the old treading grounds for some of Elsik's administrators. South House Assistant Principal Frank Jarrett taught for three years before enlisting in the Army. After the army, he went to graduate school and then applied for an assistant principal position. He was an assistant principal at Westbury High School for a year, and has been here for five years. He enjoyed being an administrator because of the variety. "When you are a classroom teacher you develop a way of teaching and can plan out what happens each day. Being an administrator you can't plan out a day and have it go exactly right.” explained Jarrett. Mr. Jarrett wanted to stay in education. If he was not an administrator, he thought that he would either be coaching or teaching.

Patsy Hoover once taught math. "After working with students as a teacher I could see where some of my efforts would not succeed due to lack of time. As a principal. I have more time to work with those students who needed support for a problem other than learning." explained Ms. Hoover. "My reward is the progress I see after having worked with a student. Whether it be small or severe, when the student benefits. I am rewarded.” Coordinating Principal Bobby Porter taught for nine years at Aldine ISD and MacArthur High School where he taught PE. health and all areas of social studies. Mr. Porter liked working where he had responsibility and leadership. Mr. Porter's responsibilities included managing the two houses to insure consistency, planning out the schedule of classes for the next year according to projections of enrollment, planning for needed new teachers, and planning a budget.

I used to sit home thinking I was having fun or pretending I was doing homework. Finally, I hit bottom. A friend told me about Bible Study. At first it was hard seeing all those people having fun, learning new and interesting things, and making so many new friends at once. But I got used to that. I started to feel the beneficial effects the first week. Now I know that JOB is an Old Testament Book and not just something you do to make money. NOW I'M HOOKED ON THE BIBLE STUDY HABIT! Won't you join me?

Back: Kerri Nippert, Leslie Lawless, Shelly Thibodeaux, Robin Williams, Julie Johnson We came to this school excited, young and unsure; And now we are more anxious and ready to leave and mature. As we look on the past four years. We see great friends, good times and bad times. All of the parties boyfriends, special friends and memories that we cherish to this day. We will always remember them in our own special ways. The past four years would not have been the same without our friends; Sometimes we wish that this time in our life would never end. But it does come to an end and we all must remember. That the memories we have made will last forever. We say we will always keep in touch but we all soon will part; And with the help of Cod may we keep each others memories close to our hearts.

As we walked across the stage on May 22 to receive our diplomas, suddenly the future looked foggy. Even for those who seem to have the rest of their lives planned out, they had to think again for a second. After all, we were thinking about a lifetime. For most seniors, there were two choices - work or college. Although the working world may have offered more immediate gratification, those who could endure another four years of school saw a bright future. Modern technology also improved the hopes of many for the future. Those skilled in the area of computers, were almost guaranteed work. As computers advanced, there will always be a need for someone to run them. Although the future spurred an automatic fear within us. it also created a hope. This hope was generated by the fact that we could now control our future and what we make of ourselves. Our diplomas were the key to the future, but it is what we do with them that is now important.

A Word From Your Editor Wow! I can't believe that the year is already over. It seems like just yesterday we were sitting in room N121 for the first time and I gave my speech about how much fun being on staff would be. Past Times at Elsik High was chosen as the theme of this book because we wanted to emphasize Elsik's tenth anniversary. It was our goal to provide you with the means to not only remember 1985 but also learn about the past - the history of Elsik and Alief. Although these histories are brief, they are rich with many developments. This year the staff was "interesting" but we always managed to pull together in times of crisis and get the job done before the publisher's deadline. Each personality contributed in their own special way. Tanya always managed to smile and say okay no matter how irate Missy became. Debbie. I forgot exactly how many times she redid the Science Club page, succeeded even though she came on staff at semester. Lisa and her sports staff were their own little family. The photographers never ceased to amaze us. I think Vivek finally learned how to focus and Lee did a great job fulfilling the legend of Randy. There are several people I would like to thank. First. Mr. Caporiccio - your Psychology and Economics classes were great because the teacher was great. (By the way. how bad did Andy need it?) Mr. Kneuven - Government was a real experience. I am glad that I was "privileged" to be in that class. Mrs. Crump - my day was never complete until I saw you. Thanks for all the xerox copies and chocolate Santas and kisses. Cary Bounds - thanks for being a friend whenever I needed you. You'll never know how much you mean to me. Audra Sanchez. Rampage Editor-in-Chief - you don't realize just how much I appreciate you for being there to listen. Best of luck at UT, I'll see you in two years - Audrey. Mrs. Ritter - words have pretty much escaped me right now but I think you will understand when I say thanks, it wouldn’t have happened without you. Thank you for putting up with my missed deadlines (I still don't know what got into me), for inspiring and encouraging me and especially for not losing your confidence in me. Finally. I would like to wish the class of 1985 the best of luck in the future. This book is for you so enjoy! Sincerely. Editor-in-Chief Ramblings '85 Me "taking a break" at McDonald’s my "favorite" lunch spot, "enjoying the Senior privilege of off cam pus lunch."

Bell- bottom pants, long hair, wire-rimmed glasses, and the flower child look characterized students in Elsik's early years. On November 26, about 200 students gathered at the stadium on a chilly, windy day to have their picture taken for the cover. These are just some of the students who made it happen in 1985 portraying Past Times at Elsik High. Photo by C. Teat
