reference only U Q S ' Do Not Remove from the Library ALLEGHANY COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL Route 2, Valley Ridge Covington, Virginia “What to do next?” “Which ingredient goes in which bowl?” fills the confused mind of Linda Linkswiler as she strug- gles into her first year of Home Economics. From The Beginning Gary Price begins his research paper by first securing and taking notes of data. Kathy Parham and Wanda Lee, Alleghany’s representatives to the Junior Miss Pageant, begin early practice of their physical fitness routines in preparation for the final day of judging. We A spire When an eighth grader enters Alleghany’s “halls of learning” for the first time, it is the beginning of a new life for him. New opportunities are opened up by this irew vista, so each class and each individual student sets up goals and ideals and strives to make them realities. But along with opportunities come responsibilities, and the assuming of these duties fashions a form of pride and intense emotion that comes from no other action. Feelings of excitement and “growing-up” far stronger than are prompted by the stimuli are created by the first day of school, the first pep rally, the first football game, the first exam, and all of the other “firsts” which eighth graders face. As each step is climbed, higher and more important steps loom, leading all the way through high school and life. How high these steps go is determined by the goals and aspirations set at the beginning. Mr. Rhea emphasizes the basic fundamentals of algebra before advancing to the more complicated equations. 3 Assuming Responsibilities Junior class prom committee, Ronnie Shires, Brenda Hayslett, Bruce Swartz, Peggy Hylton, Alice Garrett, Debbie Fridley, Sue Redman, led by Bill Humbert, chairman, take the time to search together for an appropriate theme. Looking up theme ideas, writing and typing copy, planning layouts and fitting pictures are important duties of tire ALCOVA staff, Donna Simpson, Mrs. Barber, Susan Persinger, Ronnie Spellman, Bill Humbert, John Barineau, Bruce Swartz, Wanda Braselton, Routh Ann Dainty, Charles Burr, Becky Bush, Becky McCaJeb, and Elvin Nicely. Alleghany team captains. Tommy Herald and Joe Fourqurean, and Valley captains, Ralph Long and Fred Conner, get last minute in- structions before the kickoff. 4 We Investigate It is the nature of man to be curious. There is no exception to this rule at Alleghany. With each undertaking of the students, whether it be an organization, an athletic fete, or a social activity, there must be a period for combining ideas and exploring new possibilities. There is always ample time for investigation of these new circumstances. These planning periods prove constructive when tedious details or unexpected situations develop. Long hours of practice before a stage performance or a rival game seem worthwhile when success is gained. Special club events always indicate the success of careful preparation. Students of Allegliany have proved the value of investigating periods before proceeding with the responsibilities encountered in the course of school life. Jon Kilian and Edward Steger, stage managers, are absorbed in a performance while waiting for their cues. Basketball team managers, Steve Hall, Mike Brewbaker, Butch Hall, Jack Campbell, Greg Anderson, Kenny Higgins, and Raymond Hunter, are obligated to learn certain procedures from Mr. Walker. 5 Time Passes With more advanced assignments, sixth period study hall students find the study time more necessary as the year progresses. “We’re back!” When high schoolers re-enter Alleghany, it is with confidence in their knowl- edge of high school life. Through joining teams, the cheerleading squad, and participating in everyday affairs they have carved out a niche for themselves. But their confidence in themselves is tempered by their knowledge that they do not know everything, that they still have a long haul before they can call themselves men and women. High school is a time of preparation. Most of life lies in wait of the student as he girds himself with knowledge and maturity. .Many trials are ahead, but they are anticipated with delight. Many new steps are climbed and conquered in high school. Plans for the future and grades become more important as it becomes necessary to tackle subjects such as algebra or Latin. New pressures make the process of growing up more rapid. Immediate goals become attainable and are achieved. Nevv ' , more difficult goals are selected. Along with the new opportunities of be- coming older come new responsibilities. Along with more seniority come more difficult and challenging courses. Strenuous work comes with the opportunity of being treated as a young adult. However, it is all worth the effort. Each student strives to reach what is demanded of him, and enjoys success when it is attained. “Oklahoma!” dancers, Carolyn Honts, Janice Williams, Leigh Thrasher, Karen Whitehead, Kathy Parham, Mandy Noffsinger, find themselves improving with each practice of their dance routines. 6 Yet We Are At The Foothills Climbing One of the hurtles every student must face in becoming an upperclassman is physical education. Under Mr. Scott’s instruction the boy.s physical education class runs up the hill to the tootball playing field. ■ P y 7 As In This Our Year Mr. Holbert awards Faye Persinger the “I Dare You Award” for her success in facing challenges during her senior year.

Nicely and Coach Carpenter proudly accept the 1968 District V Baseball Championship trophy from Mr. Sam Wolfenbarger. 8 We Face The World IME 1 Ricky Robinson, Eva Fury, Lois Brookman, Susan Powell, Eugenia Hoke, and Donna Simpson leave the auditorium as graduates to face the world beyond. After five years of planning and striving, the 1968 Senior Class leaves behind five years of their lives within Alleghany County High. Yet, each senior takes with him a deeper insight, a broader mind, and a new set of goals and ideals. With these each senior plans to someway establish himself in a wider world-a world much larger than the twelve hundred inhabi- tants that ACHS provided. Seniors realize the experience and knowledge of higlr school will better enable them to face the trials of this new life. Some will continue their education. Others will become a part of the working force. Whatever their aims and goals may be, 1968 Alleghany County High School graduates face tlie world with the high hope of utilizing the achieved knowledge of the past five years. 9 i Mr. Charles Holbert, with obvious emo- tion, accepts the 1968 ALCOVA dedi- cation from this year’s editor, Donna Simpson. As a prospective university student, John Barineau finds that he must study frequently in order to meet the academic demands of most institutions of higher learning, one of which he hopes to enter this year. 10 Facing the student body is the hardest part of running for Homecoming Queen, so decides Phyllis Boerner, escorted by Bobby Ailstock. Four senior girls, Jewel Hannah, Leslie Entsminger, Vickie Reed, and Eugenia Hoke leave for job interviews with smiles and determination. Concluding the year’s formal social events, the Prom is highlighted by Mr. Cvizic’s crowning Wanda Lee and C. R. Nicely Prom Queen and King. 1 1 Wanda Braselton’s excellent record for citizenship is rewarded this year when Mrs. Bush presents her with the DAR Citizenship Award. I Mr. Holbert Is Honored As ’68 Dedicatee Mr. Holbert amuses his biology students as he attempts to stress a point of importance. Larry Treynor pauses to ask a word of advice from Mr. Holbert concerning future plans. Mr. Holbert takes a portion of each day to check on bus and atliletic schedules. 12 CHARLES W. HOLBERT Lincoln Memorial University, B.S. University of Virginia, M.Ed. Administrative Assistant Athletic Director Biology Through the ages it has been recognized that one of the truly rare talents of man is the ability to effectively flip a coin. Futhermore, it is common knowledge that this ability is a tell-tale sign that its possessor has a unique quality which elevates him above his peers. Add to this extraordinary ability the qualities of patience, fairness, wisdom, firmness, humor, and understanding, and you indeed have a most remarkable person. We at Alleghany are very fortunate in having such an individual in our midst in the personage of Mr. Charles Holbert. Althougli deprived of using his special “flipping” ability during basketball season, Mr. Holbert ably shoul- dered his responsibilities as Alleghany’s athletic director. In addition, the enormous task of directing all county buses was taken in his stride. No one can deny the efficiency of Alleghany’s bus system, especially at tournament time. In his capacity as biology teacher, Mr. Holbert amuses, and sometimes amazes his classes with anecdotes of his numerous personal experiences as a “big game hunter.” Our stay at Alleghany is a brief one, yet we will remem- ber Charles Holbert and the influence he had on us. To some he will be remembered as the short, quiet man with a burgundy blazer who always had time to be friendly and offer a smile; who was always there when an extra faculty member was needed to supervise a play practice or gym decorating; who asked to help; who helped a lonely student find a place; who did everything he could to keep a guy in school. Others will simply recall his “Hello, boys” as being a sign of approval. Whatever our memories of him may be, none of us will ever forget the loyalty he showed to Alleghany and its students. With great respect and appreciation the ALCOVA staff and students of ACHS dedicate the 1968 ALCOVA to Mr. Charles Holbert, a man who is himself dedicated. Mr. Holbert enjoys one ot his daily hall-monitorin};; tasks. 13 FACULTY. 14 GUIDE STUDENTS INTO NEW PATHS OF THOUGHT Mr. Cvizic Administrates Amiably, Firmly Mr. Dusan Cvizic Concord College, A.B. George Peabody College, M. Ed. Principal Again, as always, Mr. Cvizic exe- cuted the duties of principal of ACHS with firmness, fairness, pa- tie nce, and vigor. To the student walking down the hall to class (on time) he was the jovial personifica- tion of amicability. However, to any rule offender sitting in his office, he was a grim pillar of authority. Always taking a personal interest in his students, few of them will harbor anything but pleasant mem- ories about him. I -f t m- " 1 «■“ Mr. Cvizic seems amused at one of the many phone calls made to him during his busy day. Always taking a personal interest in students, Mr. Cvizic finds time to have a friendly chat with Routh Ann Dainty. V J Mr. Holbert, Mr. Walker Concentrate On Efficiency, Co-operation Mr. Charles William Holbert Lincoln Memorial University, B.S. University of Virginia, M. Ed. Biology Mr. Charles Frederick Walker Concord College, B.S. West Virginia University, M.S. Trigonometry, Basketball Assistant Principal Mr. Holbert and Mr. Walker strove to keep school activities coordinated and run- ning smoothly. Mr. Walker, in his capacity of Assistant Principal, regulates much of the day to day school activities. He performs such varied tasks as setting up class schedules at the beginning of the year and checking and compiling records on student absentees, and faculty registers. He also assists teachers with any problem that may arise and, in the absence of Mr. Cvizic acts as principal. Mr. Holbert directs not only all the athletic events of ACHS, but also supervises aU the buses’ schedules, routes, maintenance, and expense records. To put it simply, these two faculty members set up and coordinate almost everything that occurs at Alleghany County High School. They make sure that every- thing that is supposed to happen, happens. Mr. Holbert consults with Mr. Smith concerning the bus routes at the beginning of the year. Mr. Walker manages to smile despite the great amount of paper work he is required to do as Assistant Principal. 17 Mr. Smith, School Board Perfonn Varied Tasks Alleghany County School Board Members: Mr. Delbert Hepler, Mr. Bishop Pentz, Chairman; Mrs. John Snyder, Mrs. James Ginn, Mr. Frank Hammond, Mr. Robert Burrowes, and Superintendent, Mr. Walter Hodnett. Mr. C.M. Smith District Supervisor East Carolina College, B.S. University of Virginia, M. Ed. It is the responsibility of the Alleghany County School Board to set up all rules and policies in every county school. The Board must decide upon such diversified subjects as new equipment, teachers’ salaries, the approval of all extra-curricu- lar events, school maintenance, and the hiring of personnel. It has performed these tasks true to its form, with fairness and good judgment. Mr. C.M. Smith serves as the board’s supervisor to make sure all of its policies are carried out properly. He acts as the go-between between the local administration and the School Board. All of these people are to be admired for their dedication, public spirit, and service. They will deserve a vote of thanks for a job well done. 18 Office Strives To Keep School Organized Mrs. Dora McCaleb Secretary Mrs. Elen Snead Secretary Mrs. McCaleb and Mrs. Snead seem amused at the bewild- ering, staggering, predicament of the school budget. From 8:30 A.M. to 3:45 P.M. the school office was the scene of constant mayhem. Mrs. McCaleb and Mrs. Snead, along with the aid of the student-office help, tried to establish some organization to the often chaotic school day. Starting at 8:30, they answered the phone, typed letters, made out and typed reports, counted money, paid bills, wrote tardy excuses, took care of the mail, and did numerous other things. Even though they had fuU, busy days, they managed to take a few minutes to talk with students; praising them for their achievements or consoling them in their failures. Another function of the office was the use and care of the bookstore, where students could be seen buying anything from pencils and pens to senior announcements and class rings. The hectic atmosphere sometimes prevailing in the office was indicative of the many responsibilities that could be carried out nowhere else in the school. Members of the office staff. Tommy Herald, Susan Powell, Vickie Reed, Leslie Entsminger, Susie Charles, Bonnie Smith, Kitty Charles, Routh Ann Dainty, Helen Bradley, Debbie Bennett, and Elvin Nicely always find something to do in the school office. 19 Permanent Records, Scheduling, College Miss Nora K. O’Fartell Marshall University, A.B. Ohio State University, M. A. Guidance Counselor, English Enza E. Reynolds Mr. John R. Woodson Eongwood College, B.S. University of Va., B.S., M. Ed. English, Science Guidance Counselor Guidance Counselor Mrs. Reynolds helps Mike Logan and Leigh Thrasher determine their next year’s schedules. 20 Applications: Responsibilities Of Guidance Dept No student can be so familiar with the occupational world, or so acquainted with all school courses to properly direct his educational advancement to his chosen goal. Thus, it was the duty of the Guidance Department to aid students in choosing the right courses, the right school, and the riglit vocation in which they would be happiest. Members of the guidance staff scheduled the classes of each student from year to year. They kept in mind the student’s interests, his future plans, and the courses needed for his graduation and intellectual abilities. At the end of each year they compiled each student’s course grades, achievements, and aptitude test scores in to the student’s personal permanent record. When it came to seniors, their task was even more time consuming. It was necessary for the guidance counselors to write countless character analyses, recommendation letters, and grade and aptitude test records. They also had to compile each senior’s grades and determine his class rank. It is undeniable that the work of the Guidance Department is hard, and the responsibility resting upon its shoulders is un- determinable. Mr. Woodson photocopies a transcript of a college-bound senior to be sent off with the college application. 21 Comprehension And Self-Expression Mrs. Joyce W. Barber Madison College, B.A. English Sponsor, ALCOVA Co-sponsor, Senior Play Miss Mary Litts Burton Madison College, B.A. English Sponsor, Senior Tri-Hi-Y Junior Class Play Mrs. Marie P. McEwan Lincoln Memorial University B.A. English Hnglish courses at ACHS offer students insights into history, grammar, wider vocabularies, great literary works, self-expression, and communication. Juniors, studying the development of American literature gained a greater comprehension of the feelings and emotions of previous Americans, and a better understanding of American ideals. Seniors study the English history, literature, and character so deeply ingrained with our own. Eighth graders weak in reading skills were given special aid through a remedial reading class taught by Mrs. Sadler. Through essays and class discussions students probe into the morals and philosophies behind various novels, short stories, poems, and plays. What sophomore will ever forget “Julius Caesar” or Senior, “Beowulf ' ? By discussing literature in class, giving speeches, students obtained vital experience in communication and self- expression. Without these skills all other courses of study would be fmitless. Teachers also stressed the fundamentals of grammer, acquainting the students with the peculiar, but mandatory mechanics of the English language. i 22 Mrs. Sadler passes out special reading material to Mike Reevis as Allan Reese and Judy Campbell study their lesson material.

As the world slrrinks and more job opportunities are opened, it becomes more and more advantageous for a would-be employee to be able to understand and speak one or more foreign languages. A.C.H.S. students were indeed fortunate in that the school offered a choice of three foreign languages, two years of each. Through tapes, language labs, films, and extra- curricular literary material, students became familiar with the customs, culture, and national character of the people whose language they studied. Focal point of year in French classes was a trip to Randolph-Macon Women’s College to see the French play Tartuff by Mo liere. Foreign language students widened their vocabularies and grasped more easily the meanings of many English words, due to the fact that English is based, to a greater extent upon these three languages. They learned not only the tongues of other nations, but the customs, culture, and character of the people. But, perhaps most important of all, they developed the virtues of patience and perseverance, botli essential in the mastering of an unfamiliar language, and both invaluable, even if the language itself is forgotten. Miss Gleason uses flash cards to test her students’ Latin vocabulary. 25 Mrs. Moon directs the second year French class as they use the tape language laboratory at Dabney S. Lancaster Community College. Library, Art Develop Special Skills Library Staff searches diligently for any material that is needed.

Marshall Leitch, Jeannette Armstrong, Dorothy Harris, Mary Kern, Winona Kirby, Priscilla Plott, Linda Reynolds, Molly Swartz, Carla Tliompson, and Betty Vess. Miss Wolfe and the library at ACHS were the last word in efficiency and organization. Miss Wolfe capably supervised a library of over ten thousand volumes and at the same time trained students of Library Science who served as her assistants. Many talented students found the Ait classes to be an enjoyable and informative outlet. Under the direction of Miss Smith, the classes painted and made the scenery for the choir class production of “Oklahoma!” displaying fantastic imagination and realism. Students were trained to work in several art media and displayed their works on WDBJ’s Saturday Session and at the annual school art show. Miss Smith explains the design of the “Okla- homa!” scenery to Donna Terry and Linda Thompson as Eva Fury and Debbie Fridley watch. Miss Elizabeth C. Smith Mary Washington, B.S.

Wlrile developing the talents of the members, they entertained the community and set the mood at many a school activity. While acquiring musical skill in playing instalments, the band entertained audiences at concerts and built esprit de corps at many pep rallies and sporting events. The choir class, blessed with superb vocal talent, thrilled many groups around the community with their concerts. Their crowning achievement of the year was their production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical, “Oklahoma!” Students enrolled in these programs not only developed their musical talent, but learned the patience required of a performer. Mr. Baber helps Claude Deacon with his music by taking a hand at the trom- bone himself. Mr. Leonard W. Baber Concord CoUege, B.S. Band Mr. T. F. D. Farrar University of Richmond Choir Mr. Farrar seems bewildered as an amused Donna Bru ffey, the choir accompanist, points out a difficult passage. Mr. Farrar introduces a choral ensemble to the audience as Donna Bruffey arranges her music. 27 Social Studies Develop Responsibility, Awareness, Mr. Harold L.

Citizenship In Alleghany Students Miss Jo Ann Bogan Columbia University, M.A. Government Miss Frances Dunn Butler Madison College, B.S. Social Studies Sponsor, F.T.A., Pep Club Mrs. William McClintic Longwood College, B.A. History Mr. Edward T. O’Rourke Lynchburg College, B.A. World Geography Recognizing how important it is for a student to be familiar with the world about him, A.C.H.S. offered a wide variety of social studies courses. Students could take courses in World History, World Geography, Eighth Grade Social Studies, Civics, American History, and U. S. and Virginia Government. These courses were designed to promote better world citizenship among the students, to instill a sense of responsibility in them, and to teach them the follies of the past in the hopes that these mistakes will not be repeated. The classes were spiced with a liberal offering of stimulating debates, spirited current events discussions, special teaching equipment, and special projects. Few students who successfully completed a social studies course were sorry that they had enrolled in the class. ' ' Mike Arrington feels the wrath of Miss Butler as Donnie Kirby looks on. Mike Fridley discovers that an unpleasant session after class is the penalty one must pay for disturbing Mr. Reed’s social studies. 29 Mathematics Department Offers Mr. Joseph H.

Appalachian State Teachers College, M.A. Math Mrs. Jamison shows Cathy Nicely how to work a complicated math problem while Martha Sorbora tries to find the answer on her own. 30 Mr. Carpenter attempts to explain the “new math” to a befuddled Chuckie Nicely. Wide Range Of Courses Mr. Robery Dewey Jenkins Virginia Polytechnic Institute, B.S. Math, Algebra, Geometry j.V. FootbaU Mr. Ernest Edward Rhea Lynchburg College, B.S. Math Sponsor, Cross Country, Track In tlie fast-paced technical society of today the importance of math cannot be over emphasized. Thus, ACHS offers a selec- tion of math courses ranging from eighth grade general math to trigonometry ; conse- quently a student may pursue his mathe- matical curiosity to his heart’s content for five years if he so chooses. Confused eighth graders found themselves even more befuddled when faced with the “new math” in their eiglith grade math course. Upper classmen were given a choice be- tween college preparatory, general, and busi- ness math courses. They were offered sub- jects such as Algebra I and II, geometry. Business Math, bookkeeping, trigonometry, and eiglith and ninth grade math. These classes were all designed to prepare students for later college courses and to give them experience and training in computing the common mathematical problems which they will encounter in their future lives. Mr. Rhea finds that using an over-head projector simplifies the explanation of some geometrical figures. 31 Science Dept. Emphasizes Logical Thought Miss Flora V. Carpenter Roanoke College, B.S.

Black in die basic points of anatomy. 32 Science Fair Spotlights Year’s Work Mrs. Watts and Mrs. Humbert seem to find a great deal of humor in the equipment they check out of the lab. Recognizing the importance of technology in modern society, ACHS offers a variety of science courses ranging from eighth and ninth grade general science to biology, chemistry, and physics. The primary activity of the department was the science fair in which a majority of the science students displayed their original projects. Nevertheless, despite what was studied in the classes, the main points for the students to learn were not the atomic make-up of compounds or the reproductive system of algae. Instructors tried to impress upon the students the importance of logical, clear thinking and experimentation in solving problems. These were skills valuable to all persons, regardless of their course of study. Jon Kilian and David Brisendine enjoy Mr. McClintic’s unique approach to Physics. Drivers’ Education Students Learn Courteous, Responsible, And Defensive Driving Selina Tolly leams the hard way how to change a tire under Mr. Jonas’ supervision, while Nancy Burr, Karen Arrington, and James Hicks look on with mild amusement at her plight. William W. Jonas Kmory and Henry College, B.A. Driver Education I’ootball, Wrestling Sponsor, Varsity Club Those students at A.C.H.S. wlio were just learning to drive were indeed fortunate in that they were able to receive invaluable behind-the-wheel training taught by a patient instructor. They learned everything from the proper way to make a left turn to why the car goes forward when the skinny pedal on the right is pushed down. Students were instructed in how to drive correctly, alertly, and defensively. Those who took the course were taught the basics of road courtesy. More important, however, they were given a vivid impression of the awesome responsibility of getting behind the wheel of a car. Mr. Jonas seems to doubt his courage a bit as he prepares to instruct a student in techniques of rainy weather driving. 34 Students Learn Proper Business Procedures As They Strive For Perfection Mrs. Swartz gives an eye of approval to the display set-up by Karyl Jarvis Mrs. Sams keeps a close watch on her Typing 1 class, making her and Dickie Tiggrett while other members of the seventh period Typing I students careful, attentive, efficient, and sUghtly nervous, class laborously practice their drills. Business courses at ACHS stressed perfection in such commercial subjects as typing, shorthand, bookkeeping, busi- ness math, office practice and machines, and general business. In these courses, the business student was given an idea of the many business opportunities and a chance to choose his own particular field of interest. College-bound students also found the business courses helpful. They soon discovered how handy typing was for those all-important term papers, while shorthand never failed when taking lecture notes. Thus the Business Department had a universal appeal, giving those who wished to pursue a business career the opportunity to do so, and also helping others by offering the fundamentals in typing and shorthand.

At ACHS the physical education classes were concerned with mental as well as physical health. When a student entered the phys. ed. program he found he must have brains along with brawn in order to pass the course. Every other day of the week, phys. ed. students found themselves in the classroom learning everything from how to score in bowling to the important bone and muscle structures in the body, and from how to be a good pedestrian to how to be a good driver. Physical health was not ignored, however, as students learned co-ordination and agility by partici- pating in many team games and individual sports. When weather permitted, phys. ed. classes were seen outside playing baseball, football, and pitching horse- shoes. Wliile the weather was too rainy, snowy, or cold, the classes played volleyball and basketball indoors in addition to ten minutes of regular calis- thenics. In both classroom and gym classes sportsmanship, fair play, and teamwork were emphasized to create a mature and well-balanced person, both in and out of school.

Knapp George Peabody College for Teachers, B.S. West Virginia University, M.A. Home Economics Sponsor, FHA Those students in the practical arts program studied courses in which they were taught vocational skills valuable to them in their future lives. Boys in the shop program studied courses in woodwork, metalwork, and mechanical drawing. Girls expecting to be housewives took Home Economics. There they received invaluable training in sewing, cooking, nursing, and budgeting. All garments made were displayed in the FHA Fasliion Show.

Stresses Merchandising, Salesmanship Distributive Education of Alleghany High taught students invaluable on-the-job training. Those who participated in the program took classes on essential business techniques and on salesmanship. They took written tests and examinations on the subject matter. However, the true test of their knowledge came when they entered the business world by way of local jobs, undertaken in connection with the D.E. course. Experience the students gained through these local jobs was priceless and irreplaceable. Students learned not only how to hold down a job, but learned how to be responsible, productive members of society. Richard C. Duff Richmond Professional Institute, B.S.

In a play about a young couple that goes wrong, Hippies, portrayed by several members of the psychology class, enjoy a party, as Mike Slayton sways to the rhythm of “pot,” “rock,” and “wine.” Mrs. Florence H.

Mrs. Scholz supervises a group discussion in her seventh period psychology class. Realizing how important it is for people to be able to get along with one another, ACHS offered a psychology class designed to help students understand the basic drives responsi- ble for various human reactions. The classes proved to be interesting, thought provoking, and startlingly unique. The classes were seasoned with panel and group discussions, seminars, and original skits. The highlight of the year was a seminar on “Marriage and Dating,” at which the combined psychology classes fired difficult questions at a panel of ACHS faculty members. Each student who completed the course came away not only able to get along with others better, but also a little better acquainted with himself. 41 Efficient Maintenance Staff Keeps ACHS On Even Keel, In Good Repair Often working behind the scenes, the Maintenance Staff at ACHS kept the students comfortable, safe, and well-fed. The custodial crew maintained a safe, clean, and pleasantly- remperatured atmosphere in which the students could work in comfort. They swept halls, replaced light bulbs, cut grass, repaired broken equipment, and kept the heating system in good working order. In effect, they kept the school from falling down or sinking in refuse. ACHS’s cafeteria provides nutritious meals at a low cost, in order that no student need go hungry. Though these services were more often than not taken for granted; in truth every student was well aware of what would happen if they were not performed and inwardly, if not outwardly, appreciated them greatly. The cafeteria staff; Mrs. Y. Salyers, Mrs. E. Flint, Mrs. Lefler, Mrs. M. Wilhelm, Mrs. L. Pedigo, Mrs. L. Knighton, and Mrs. V. Smith. Mr. Osborne removes bottles from the cafeteria table during the prog- ress of his day. Mrs. Kitt cleans the sinks in the girls’ rest room. 42 But Through It All, Teachers Remain, Basically, Human Mr. and Mrs. Sumner enjoy a waltz at the Spanish Club Dance. Mrs. Humbert and Miss Butler bide their time until June as they snuggle under a blanket to ward off the winter cold. Mr. Duff shows his horror at even the thought of work as Wanda Braselton asks him to take an empty pop bottle into the teachers’ lounge. Stumped by a Biology question. Miss Carpenter consults a Ouija Board, with the aid of C.E. Andrews, to find the answer as Judy Friel, Gary Brisendtne, Chris Shortridge, and Jan Shawver look on. Mrs. Swartz sneaks out of her class and into a storage room to have Wanda Lee style her hair. 43 SOCIA L A CTI VITIES 44 BRING PEOPLE TO MEET ONE ANOTHER 45 Spirit Of ’67 Reigns Supreme ' wM M fMjiiistjiM. jgpJjffiggsiHjs mm ■ ■ W 1 II A Homecoming 1967, a week booming with suspense and excitement, exploded into a pan- orama of memorable festivities. At the beginning of the week, six lovely girls were nominated by the varsity football players to vie for Home- coming Queen. Wednesday the young ladies were presented to the student body during a special assembly. Calvin McClinton serenaded the candi- dates and deliglited the student body with his version of “He.” Whispers and crossed fingers were rampant tliroughout the week as students anticipated who would be crowned as Alle- ghany’s new Queen. As Friday niglit drew nigh, tension mounted. Quivering smiles and knocking knees were common among the six nervous girls as they awaited the crowning at halftime. One by one, each girl received a bouquet of flowers as Mrs. Joyce Barber announced the festivities. To everyone’s deliglit, Phyllis Boernor, unsuccess- fully figliting back tears of joy, was crowned Homecoming Queen for 1967. Topping off the wonderful evening was the Homecoming Dance entitled “Spirit of ’67.” And spirit there was -- enougli to sustain everyone until next year, when the long awaited Homecoming Season comes once again. Moments after being crowned, Phyllis Boernor, forcing a tearful smile, stands with Mr. Kenneth Childs, President of the Alleghany Athletic Association. Displaying impeccable grace and charm, Phyllis Boernor, Cathy Parham, Steve Crawford, and Joe Wood, are introduced to the student body for Donna Simpson, Sherry Howard, Wanda Braselton, and Mary Fridley, the final time, escorted by Bobby Ailstock, Mike Sams, Bobby Irving, Tommy Herald, 46 As Homecoming Activities Unfold Unaware of her selection as Homecoming Queen, Phyllis Boernor is escorted out of her convertible by Bobby Ailstock.

Returning students and area servicemen made the theme, “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” even more appropriate as they enjoyed the enrapture of the dance and the presence of that special someone. During the intermission, the Future Homemakers of America served tempting refreshments. As the couples enjoyed the refreshments, Calvin McClinton, to the accompaniment of Donna Bruffey, accentuated the season as he sang “White Christmas” and “Little Drummer Boy.” Snow covered mountain scenes, a pungent aroma of cedar, and untold thousands of stars dangling from a crystal-clear, undulating sky of frost all enhanced the mystical romance of the occasion as enchanted couples glided to the music of the Sircut Brea kers. Cries of “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!” rang out as the Formal, the holidays, and 1967 stole into liistory. Smith, and Debbie Morris prepare to serve refreshments as the nigni hastens toward its end. 48 Barbara Kelly and Tommy Herald, Debbie Lockard and Kenny Childs, and Susan Persinger and Roy Swartz chat as they dance near a magnificent Christmas tree. Climaxed Alleghany’ s Yuletide Spirit Excited by the approach of Christmas and delighted by the pleasure of the dance, Susan Persinger and Roy Swartz, Kathy Humphries and Dennis Smith, Karen Arrington and Elvin Nicely, and Betty Downey and Bobby Smith coast to the music. Chester Smith, to the accompaniment of Larry McGee, delights the couples with a rendition of “White Christmas.” 49 “Come Along With Me To The Sweetheart Tree” In a frantic race with time, Sandy Craft, Jane Sizer, Sharon Hopkins, Helen Bradley, and Debbie Lochard put the finishing touches on tlie “sweetheart tree.” As the dance comes to a close, Betty Downey and Bobby Smith portray that touch of romance which prevailed throughout the Sweetheart Dance. After their coronation, Donna Simpson and Steve Crawford pause for a brief moment under the sweetheart tree. 50 Ushers In Valentine’s Gaiety Radiant with joy, Debbie Fore and Larry McGee, Dottie Mullins and David Rogers dance to a fast number. Tommy Herald, Becky Bush, Susan Powell, Steve Crawford, Karyl Jarvis, Donna Simpson, Keith Scruggs, John Barineau, Becky McCaleb, and Max Shawver, candidates for King and Queen, cheer- fully discuss the escorting arrangements. Under a canopy of red, white, and pink streamers, numerous couples, already laden with spring fever, danced to the music of the Nightdrives on a chilly but romantic night. Hearts, flowers, and butterflies adorned the scene in a riot of gay pastels. Inspired by the theme, “Come Along With Me to the Sweetheart Tree”, a sweetheart tree hung with hearts and billowing with puffs of white, sprouted from the center. Edged by bright red valentines, a tremen- dous heart accented the entrance. Enveloped by criss- crossed streamers, the band performed many lively numbers to the deliglit of the crowd. Laughter and romance prevailed as high spirited couples enjoyed themselves. Adding to the fun were numerous cameras, which flashed at any and all unexpected moments. Ten outstanding seniors representing tlie Senior Tri-Hi-Y and Key Club were introduced to the crowd during a special presentation prior to intermission. After Mr. Edwin Scott announced the festivities, Donna Simpson and Steve Crawford were coronated as queen and king. Following the Queen’s Dance, deliglitful refreshments were served by the Tri-Hi-Y. Although brought to an early end by snow, the enjoyment of the dance crescendoed into a kaleidoscope of happiness. As the 1968 Sweetheart Dance faded into fond memo- ries, romances engendered by the event extended past Valentine’s Day and into the future. 51 Weeks Of Practice And Superb Acting Gerald appears to be speechless as Gloria and Mr. Carruthers cook up a scheme to make Jeannme jealous. As Gerald and Jeannine engage in a tender embrace, Gerald’s fear dissolves. 52 Make Junior Class Play A Success Spontaneous laugliter rang through the auditorium as higlily talented juniors presented their version of “For Heaven’s Sake.” Due to the contemporary plot, the audience found it easy to identify themselves with the characters. As the play progressed, Gerald, played by Robert Pedigo, became involved with a prospective angel’s attempt to steer him out of his shell and dissolve his fear of girls. Numerous hilarious mishappenings occurred as the various devious plots to hitch Gerald and Jeannine collided with each other. Having successfully completed his earthly task, Eric, the angel, triumphantly entered the Pearly Gates as the curtains fell for the final time . Top notch acting and scenery, and higlily effective lighting made the second annual Junior Class Play a large success and earned appreciative applause from the audience.

Dating procedures were reversed and worried girls asked fretful boys to the annual Sadie flawkins Day Dance. Each girl and her “patchmate” after fumbling for the correct change of one dime, two nickels, and thirteen pennies, entered the “Dogpatch” dancehall. As couples entered the dancehall, they found they had to weave under and around a mass of dungarees and plaid shirts dangling from a clothesline. Through- out the evening a few of the most respectable, although secret, citizens of “Dogpatch,” combed the entire dancefloor as if in search of some of their kin. After much hunting, Debbie Fore and Kenny Higgins were selected as 1968’s Daisy Mae and Lil’ Abner. In reward for their “luck”, they were presented with certain unmentionable prizes. As the 1968 Sadie Hawkins Day drew to a close, normal dating procedures returned and all Lil’ Abners and Daisy Maes mosied on back to “Dogpatch.” 54 Carl Custer seems completely absorbed in the task of pinning his hat to the “Dogpatch” clothesline. As “Dogpatch” Comes To Alleghany Numerous couples display their skills at squaredancing to the calls of Ray Tucker and his band. Carl Byer and Sally PhilUps seem amused as they “light up” their corn-cob pipes. Tattered and torn, but having fun, Brenda Hyler, Steve Young, Linda Walker, Bruce Swartz, and Lana Knick “snap the w ' hip”. 55 “Tune In On Terror” Vividly describing his killing of Arnold the Boa Boy, Bruno Karp frightens Jikki and Dillingham with his bloody axe while Granny curiously looks up from her knitting.

All of these strange and horrifying items were in abundance as the senior class presented “Tune in on Terror,” a screamingly funny mystery-comedy by Jay Tobias. Revolving around a haunted mental hospital built by the mad scientist. Doctor Von Schlasher, the plot concerned a plan to terrify two pretty co-eds from a local college so they would stop watching horror films and start studying again. Convincingly spine-chilling, timely sound effects kept the audience sitting on the edge of their seats, while a double-twisted plot kept everyone in confusion.

Which senior girl possesses the most poise, personality, knowledge of current events, and attractiveness? Miss Alcova, of course! She is not merely the most popular or pretty girl in school, but adjudged to be the best rounded in all facets of life. It is for this reason that all girls aspire to be chosen Miss Alcova. Miss Alcova is a coveted honor in that the girl chosen is the one of the senior girls chosen by her class to represent them, and is the one senior girl who makes the best impression on her peers and elders. In this, the fifth year of Alleghany’s existence, she represents even more. For the first time, Miss Alcova is from a senior class which has spent all its high school career at Alleghany. Every senior had a voice in choosing Miss Alcova when he voted for twelve senior girls. Of all the girls receiving votes, the top twelve had the honor of running for Miss Alcova. Tliree impartial local citizens and two mem- bers of the faculty were on a panel which interviewed each girl throu gh testing her poise, Nervously awaiting their interviews are Bonnie Smith, Donna Simpson, Beckie McCaleb, Wanda Lee, Sherry Howard, Linda Howard, Eva Fury, Mary Fridley, Wanda Braselton, Phyllis Boerner, Cathy Parham, and Becky Bush. Phyllis Boerner laces her “moment of truth” with judges Mr. Weaver, Mrs. Whalen, Mrs. Walsli, Mrs. Sumner, and Mr. Loving. school spirit, general awareness, dating habits, and character. Questions such as “Do you think people can be religious without attending church on Sunday?” helped the panel make its decision. Miss Alcova and the runners-up were the girls who made the best impressions and seemed to best represent an all-around ACHS senior girl. • Rebecca McCaleb But win or lose, each girl learned a little about her classmates and herself in the period before the interview and the interview itself. Armed with outstanding poise, general awareness, and character, these twelve girls typify the senior girls of today as they leave the environment of high school and face the world beyond. Wanda Braselton Eva Fury PiQudly clutching their roses and radiant with happiness, Bonnie Smith, Eva Fury, Sherry Howard, Beckie McCaleb, and Wanda Braselton face the audience. Judging Tests Twelve Extra-Special Senior Girls Miss Cheryl Howard, nicknamed “Sherry,” was pre- sented a dozen red roses to designate her as Miss Alcova. “Spirit” was Sherry’s watchword. It was not often that she missed a basketball or baseball game, either home or away. In recognition of this, Sherry was the first to receive the “Spirit Stick” and was named “Most Spirited” senior girl. She was an active member of the Patriot staff. Future Nurses, and S.C.A. Six long-stemmed roses were presented to Miss Re- becca “Beckie” McCaleb, first runner-up. In addition to her duties as a member of the Alcova staff, Beckie was active in the S.C.A. , Future Teachers of America, Future Homemakers of America, as well as Senior Tri-Hi-Y, of which she was president. Winner of the DAR citizenship award and second runner-up. Miss Wanda Braselton was a member of the Alcova staff, the Spanish Club, and the Future Nurses. She was named to “Who’s Who” and also selected as a charter member of the National Honor Society. Third runner-up was Miss Eva Fury. Known for her quiet and unassuming personality, Eva captured the lead role in the Junior Class Play. Named to the National Honor Society, Eva was also a Junior Honor Marshal and an Honor Graduate. President of the Future Homemakers and fourth runner-up was Miss Bonnie Smith. Miss F.H.A. of 1968 and being named to the National Honor Society were other honors she earned.

SPORTSMANSHIP, CONGENIALITY AND LEADER- SHIP Although modest about his recognition, Steve displays the Outstanding Senior Key Club member plaque upon which liis name will be printed. 62 Steve stands tense as he awaits the pitch in hopes that he can add another run to the team’s score. Before a crucial game with Rockbridge, Steve gets the feel of catching a pass. “Boy of the Year”-That I best all-around senior boy who I excels in character, sportsman- ship, congeniality, and leader- ship. For the second time in the history of Alleghany the task of choosing “Boy of the Year” was delegated to the senior class. After much thought and consideration each senior voted for the boy he or she felt best deserved the hon- or. To the delight and surprise of all Steve Crawford was cho- ! sen as “Boy of the Year” for 1968. Steve has been recog- nized as one of Alleglrany’s foremost athletes who has par- ticipated in football, basket- ball, baseball, and track. His coaches will remember him for ' his success and his great “luck” in avoiding accidents. Steve’s ! esteem extends further than ’ just the sports field. His leader- ship ability was proved through his efficiency as president of the Key Club. His outgoing personality won him many friends and contributed to his I selection as best citizen in the I senior class and outstanding Key Club member. Steve’s civic activities were many and varied. Without a doubt, this well-rounded senior deserved I all the honors bestowed upon him. After having given the presentation speech, Wanda Braselton presents the “Boy of the Year” trophy to one elated Steve Crawford. Talent And Determination Make Jud, portrayed by Curtis Nelson, contemplates his life in his miserable smokehouse hovel, as Calvin McClinton dramatically sings “Lxrnely Room.” Liglitning does strike twice! For the second time the choral class, assisted by the art department, turned a Broadway hit into a local smash. “Oklahoma!” drew raves from the several thousand who saw the splendid production. Jackie Nicely performs a beautiful “Dream “The Farmer and the Cowman Should Be Friends” is illustrated by the exuberance of the Ballet” to a medley of songs from Act 1. squaiedancers. 64 “Oklahoma!” A Smashing Success Aunt Eller denounces her disapproval for tlie peddler-man’s fancy, red lace drawers as Ado Annie and Laurey appear agliast. “If you did ask me, I wouldn’t go with you,’ " sneers Laurey as she discourages Curly’s intended invitation to the Box Social. i 65 And Provides Tremendous Challenge Some territory folks gather round Will Parker, anxiously awaiting a glimpse of his “Little Wonder” from Kansas City. Mr. Ted Farrar, although inexperi- enced in the directing field, proved a professional as he unveiled the ample talents of his choral classes into polished performance. The entire cast entered enthusiastically into the musical produc- tion. Those who executed lead roles were exceptionally outstanding; how- ever Calvin McClinton’s dynamic rendi- tion of “Lonely Room” was especially remarkable, and established momentary melancholy throughout the audience. Pulsating lights punctuated a beautiful and enchanting Dream Ballet performed by Jackie Nicely. Accompanists, Donna Bruffey and Elvin Nicely, did a splendid job on the Overture and the other “whistling-good” songs. As the years have gone by, the quality of the stage productions at Allegliany has steadily improved. Experience in directing, lighting, and producing, along with cooperation and hard work, made “Oklahoma!” the biggest success of all and promised a big challenge for future vocal classes. Seriously contemplating suicide, as suggested by Curley in “Poor Jud”, Jud sits despondent and sad.

Goals and responsibilities were met and passed in the lower grades, until the specter of graduation loomed ever larger in the minds of the class. With a rush, high school and the senior year came and went. Before realization could set in, the prom and senior banquet were past and graduation was HERE. As the graduating class of 1968, the first to go all the way through Alleghany, marched into the auditorium to those long- awaited diplomas, their heads held high and their steps slow but firm, perhaps they were conscious of the attention being showered upon them on their special day, or perhaps they were peering into the all-important and unpredictable future. Speakers, like the years which had led up to graduation, each added a little knowledge and inspiration to the class, and led up to graduation itself. With seriousness and pride, each person grasped his diploma and either tearfully or happily flipped his tassel to designate him a graduate. Each graduate had his own plans and purpose, but even though the class would scatter never to be reunited again, all would look back on Alleghany’s halls of learning with a sense of nostalgia and, perhaps, wistfulness. 75 At the epitome of her high school life, graduation, Brenda Kitt grasps her diploma Leannah Looney, due to her fine efforts on the Alleghany stage, and shakes Mr. Cvizic’s hand. receives the Dramatics award. Resting from their ushering at Graduation, Junior Honor Marshals Linda Walker, Peggy Hylton, Betty Vess, Bill Humbert, Sue Redman, Debbie Lockard, Sandra Craft, Susan Persinger, and Bruce Swartz chat. 76 Under the lee of their beloved Virginia mountains, Linda Wolfe and Ronnie Spelhnan march to the Processional of “Aide.” School Days To Remember — With Life’s Work Before Them “We made it!” After twelve years, those diplomas look mighty good to Judy Deisher and James Arritt. 78 Commencement, Not The End But The Beginning . . . As Mr. Cvizic pronounces the Class of 1968 as graduates of Alleghany County High School, each senior proudly flips his tassel. To change and change is life, to move and never rest;- Not what we are, but what we hope, is best. Each man is some man’s servant; every soul Is by some other’s presence quite discrowned; Each owes the next through all the imperfect round. Yet not with m utual help; each man is his own goal. And the whole earth must stop to pay him toll. from “The Pioneer” by James Russell Lowell i A THLETICS . . 80 GIVE EXPERIENCE TO EA CE COMPETITION 81 Inexperience Hampers Success Of Early Season After receiving a perfect pass from Jonathan Williams, Joe Fourqurean outdistances Rockbridge players Arehart (25), Brown (34), Clark (60), Austin (83), and Swisher (61) in route to a touchdown. first row: Manager, D.

A bruising defensive battle resulted, and only a last minute touchdown pass from Jonathan Williams to Joe Fourqurean enabled the Colts to gain a 6 3 victory. Seeking their second victory, the Colts traveled to Riverheads where they lost a bitterly contested game by the score of 7 6. Although they showed improvement, penalties destroyed the Colts’ chance of victory. Alleghany proved a stub- born opponent as powerful James River man- aged to win by the close score of 21 7 in a game marred by frequent injuries. In the Colts’ next outing the District leading Clifton Forge Mountaineers ran up a 31 -0 halftime lead to ice one of their ten victories in an undefeated season. However, in the second half the Colts sounded a warning to future opponents by playing the overwhelming Mounties on even terms before dropping a 38 2 decision. StevL ' Crawford jarringly tackles Valley’s Rick Ryder in the Colts’ 6 3 victory over the Hornets.

A smiling Greg Anderson is welcomed back by Mike Balser, Butch Simpson, Pat Sams. Joe Wood, and David Snider as they wait to enter a pep rally. Allegltany craslied the victory column the follow- ing week with a resounding 25 7 victory over the Buffalo Gap Bisons. A rugged second half defense and a new found offense proved to be the winning formula. Despite a good effort on a muddy field, the Colts dropped a 27 7 decision to the Fort Defiance Indians. The wet weather played havoc with the Colt passing attack and thus throttled the Allegliany offense. Arch-rival Covington used a second quarter outburst to gain a 25 -0 victory over Alleghany. The Colts continued to show improvement and only a brief defensive lapse cost them a long awaited victory over the always tough Cougars. Alleghany showed the ability and poise of a veteran team in racing to a 32-14 victory over Rockbridge County. Victory number three was especially sweet as the Colts reigned superior in their Homecoming. Bill Siple and Joe Fourqurean along with Jonathan Williams pro- vided the offensive power needed for the win. 84 Fourqurean Receives All- District Honors Wilson Memorial closed Alle- ghany’s season by bowing to the opportunistic Colts, 27 -7. In- spired play by seniors Mike Sams and Tommy Herald, along with the performance of the other spir- ited Colts, proved to be too much for the Hornets. Despite the dif- ficult task of molding young play- ers into an effective team. Coach Jonas, along with coaches Scott and Potter, turned in an outstand- ing performance in guiding Alle- gliany to a 4—5 record. The re- turning members of the squad are enough to compel the coaching staff to anxiously await next sea- son and what should prove to be a most successful year. Enthusiastically, Peggy Hylton, Sherry Smith, and Linda Loan cheer Robert McDowell (84) and Bobby Irvine (42) through the victory hoop before the Valley game. After a discouraging effort against Covington, Coach Jonas appears disconsolate while talk- ing with Paul Siple and Mrs. Jonas; but his spirits were lifted when ACHS beat Rock- bridge on the next Friday night. Gary Childs, displaying speed and agility against Wilson Memorial, greatly aided the Colts throughout the season. 85 Junior Varsity Colts Gain Impressive Kenny Higgins races for a touchdown as Cougar Bobby Newcomb (21) gives pursuit.

Although compiling only a 2-2 record for the 1967 season, Alleghany’s eighth grade footballers displayed the traditional Colt spirit. Twice they rolled over James River’s eiglith graders by scores of 42-0 and 39-0. Both defeats came at the hands of a surprisingly strong Covington Cougar squad, 34-0 and 19-0. Coach James Williams and assistant coach Blair Wilhelm were pleased with the overall success of the season and remarked that several of the boys hold the potential to help strengthen the Colt varsity line in the future. Colt David Byer (20) drives forward on a punt return for a sizeable gain as Jim Morrison (70) of the Knights vainly tries to lay a play-ending trap. George Quinlin (75) speeds around the end on a quarterback keeper for a sLxty-sLx yard TD as Richard Pedigo (30) blocks Knight Roger Deane’s (41) attempt to prevent the score. 88 Varsity Cheerleaders Utilize New Techniques Jumping high into the air, Brenda Hayslett demonstrates the pep which spurred the Colts’ fighting spirit throughout the year. Jean Shawver, Brenda Hayslett, and Paula Dressier lead the crowd in a chant during the Clifton I ' orge-AUeghany basketball game. Enthusiasm and imagination were the key words in the activities of the 1967-68 Alleghany Varsity cheerleaders. Their dedication, poise, and spirit enabled the Colts to enjoy a successful year in sports. The tasks of cheering at games and whipping up pep in the student body were zestfully performed. Many innovations were introduced by the cheerleaders during the past year. When, for the first time, a “spirit slogan” contest was held the week preceding the Alleghany-Covington football game, Nancy Archie received the prize. Varsity cheerleaders; Sherry Smith, Vicki Reed, Linda Loan, Susan Persinger, Peggy Hylton, head cheerleader; Paula Dressier, Carol Thompson, Brenda Hayslett, Jean Shawver. 89 Pep, Spirit, And Desire Are Instilled Into Senior Vicki Reed appears to be caught up in the excitement generated by the Colts during a contest with Fort Defiance. The advent of the spirit stick to the A.C.H.S. victory formula greatly enhanced the effective- ness of pep rallies. Skits and pom pom routines served to activate the pep of the players and students alike. A weeklong stint at Virginia Beach at cheerleading camp proved to be both profitable and enjoyable. Much can be said about A. C. 11. S.’s Varsity cheerleaders; however, it is the mystic quality that places them above the ordinary that is not easily expressed. One thing is certain - under the competent and watchful eyes of Misses Sybil Hoover and Jo Ann Bogan the Alleghany clteer- leaders of 1967-68 achieved the reputation of being second to none. Hand clapping and foot stomping, the Varsity cheerleaders inspire the Colt grapplers in a match with Covington. 90 Head cheerleader Peggy Hylton displays her vibrant enthusiasm wliile instilling school spirit in the student body.

Championship and a third place finish in statewide competition. It was full speed ahead as the Colt harriers rolled over James River, 15-50, in the opening contest. With mounting confidence the inexperienced Colts continued to meet each challenge with enthusiasm and determination, enabling them to hammer Group I-B Northside, 18-44, and District rival Buffalo Gap, 19-50. Spurred by the leadership of seniors Charlie Burr, Jon Kilian, and John Barineau the following two meets resulted in identical 15-43 conquests over Giles County and Fort Defiance. Spearheaded by ace runner Tom Sweet, Riverheads offered a stern challenge before falling to the Colts, 25-30. Dominating all action over the 2.4 mile Alle- ghany course, the Colts rolled to a 15-50 shellacking over the Covington Cougars. While participating in the Concord Invita tional Meet, the Colts captured only fourth place in a fi team field. In a tri-nreet, the ever-improving Colts swept away the victory with 16 points, while James River and Covington trailed with 45 and 72, respectively. With spirits higli and minds set on victory, Alleghany easily outdistanced tlie field at Lexington to become District V champions. The Colts were able to capture third place in the state meet as Robert Pedigo displayed team spirit by running on an injured ankle. John Barineau’s eighth place finish resulted in his receiving an All-State award. Giving promise of a banner year next season, the nucleus for another fine championship team returns.

Girls’ basketball once again proved itself to be an exciting and unpredictable sport during 1967. Despite the fact that the girls’ team was unable to gain a victory, the season was not a complete loss as each girl on the team was instilled with the principles of good sportsmanship. Clifton Forge opened Alleghany’s season by posting a convincing victory over the young Allegliany squad by the score of 47—29. Allegliany next fell to the powerful Millboro “Wild Kittens”, 47-13. James River also proved to be too strong for the “Fillies” as the Knights prevailed 35-23. Valley’s “Queen Bees” subdued the “Fillies” 35—17 in a contest that saw Alleghany put up a gallant fight. In return matches, Clifton Forge’s “Mountainettes” defeated Alleghany, 46—27. Only a week later the “Fillies” fell victim to the tougliest team in the league, the “Wild Kittens” of Millboro, losing 42-14. James River’s girls were surprised by a greatly improved team when they were hosted by A.C.H.S. In a hard-fought battle during which the lead continually changed hands, the James River team emerged victorious by the close score of 19-16. Valley hung a disappointing 38—19 defeat on Allegliany ’s girls in the season finale.

Return to winning form higlilighted the 1967-68 basketball season as the Alleghany Colts compiled a 9-8 record. The Colt cagcrs managed to finish be- hind only Fort Defiance and James River during the regular season with a 9-5 District record. Alleghany’s first confrontation with James River resulted in a disputed 64-63 victory for the Knights. Stubborn River- heads fell 79-71. The charges of Coach Charles Walker handily overcame delib- erate Rockbridge, 72-59. Two dis- appointing defeats came at the hands of Covington and Fort Defiance, 75-56 and 80-70. An 81-67 defeat of Wilson Me- morial inaugurated a five game Colt winning streak. The Colt victory machine rolled over Buffalo Gap, 75-65.

Keith Scruggs leaps above Greg McCauley (24) and the outstretched arms of Curtis Doyle (30) of Wilson Memorial to attempt a pass to one of the awaiting Colts Steve Crawford (40) or Bill Siple (20). The intensity of Colt action places anxious gazes on the faces of player Butch Simpson, Coach Walker, and assistant Coach James Williams. In a frenzied contest the Colts hung a 67-65 defeat on Clifton Forge at the Clifton Forge Armory. Riverheads was crushed 62-38 before Buffalo Gap dealt Alleghany a 70-56 loss.

Eighth grade basketball got off to a disasterous start in the 1967 -68 season. The campaign began with the Colts dropping their first seven contests. Coach Tommy Rudisill was forced to mold a horde of individuals into a cohesive unit. By mid-season the transformation had been completed and the Baby Colts closed the year with five consecutive wins. Alleghany was twice defeated by Covington, 41-28 and 34- 32. Clifton Forge prevailed twice, 38- 23 and 48—35. Higlrlights included 48—26 and 37—16 wins over Valley.

Alleghany County Higlt School fielded a spirited Junior Varsity team in 1967-68. Despite completing only a 7-10 season, the proteges of Coach James David Williams always exhibited the traditional Colt will to win. Starting the season on a high note, James River fell to the eager Colts, 38-25. Harvey Dobbins and Robert McDowell each scored 11 points in leading tlie J.V.’s in a 40-37 overtime loss to Riverheads. Rockbridge squeaked past Allegliany 28-26 on the Colts’ home floor. Powerful Covington crushed the Colts 67-25 in a display of extreme roundball skill.

Mix determination, spirit, fast moves, and good condition, season liberally with neanderthal grunts, sweat, and colorful uniforms, and one has a wrestling match. Great improvement over the previous year was shown by the Alleghany squad as it chalked up a 7—5 record against some of the finest teams in the region. Losing to William Byrd in a hard-fought 21—27 battle, the Colt grapplers got off to a slow start, but the plucky matsmen bounced back to beat the VSDB J.V.’s 30—20. Facing the state champion Pulaski team proved hard as the Colts lost 6—42, but hardened by defeat, the team came back to smother Martinsville 42—15. Coming against Northside, one of the state’s toughest teams, the squad suffered a disappointing 8—38 loss, only to fall again the next week to William Byrd in a tight 23—27 match. Making good use of his strength and skill, Dicky Griffin tops big Bobby White of the Martinsville Bulldogs. Wrestling team: G. Kilian, R. Van Lear, D. Cody, T. Wade, J. Craft, V. Mosby, R.

Winning ways were learned again as Covington fell 39-11, but seemed to be forgotten as ACHS in turn fell to VSDB, another excellent team, by 0—42. Martinsville, Covington, Clifton Forge, and Clifton Forge again all lost to the Colts in its victory tear which finished up the regular season. Despite bad luck of the draw. Tommy Botkins, Gary Bush, and Tex Hazelwood all finished third in the region in their weight classes, and Botkins went on to finish fifth in the State in the 180 pound class. Although many members of the 1968 wrestling team will be lost to graduation, the boys who return are experienced, tempered by competition with the best, and have the winning spirit. Championship teams are in the future for ACHS. Covington’s Mik e Lambert struggles to free himself from the secure hold of Alleghany’s Tex Hazelwood. Gary Bush glances at the time before entering the second time period with Linton of Covington. 103 Originality And Vitality Characterize Six freshmen and two sophomores eomposing the Junior Varsity cheerleading squad complemented the efforts of the Varsity cheer- leaders by participating in pep rally pom pon routines and by being present at all games to cheer the Colts on, win or lose. Their pep and inexhaustible energy boosted the spirit of the J.V. teams as well as that of the student body. Led by Debbie Fore, the J.V. cheerleaders experimented with new procedures for boosting student interest in the activities of the J.V. teams. Several J.V. pep rallies were held during the year to encourage the athletes and to better prepare the student body for important contests. All of the girls exhibited much desire in striving for perfection through long hours of practice. The J.V.’s began to feel their maturity when they helped aspiring eighth grade girls learn fundamental cheers. Miss Jo Ann Carter served as an able advisor, impressing upon every squad member the importance of the role a cheerleader plays in the life of a school. Representing the school and learning to co-operate with others helped prepare each girl for a possible stint on the Varsity cheerleading squad.

In preparation for years to come, the eighth grade cheerleaders willfully and enthusiastically undertook the task of learning from “scratch” the cheers and routines necessary for attaining the level of success wlrich has been gained by all previous Alleghany squads. Under the capable and patient guidance of Miss Jo Ann Carter these seven girls greatly aided in boosting the spirit of the eighth grade class. Their time and efforts in perfecting their techniques have made them likely prospects for future J. V. and Varsity cheerleaders at A.C.H.S. Joyce Hinkle leaps excitedly in a spirited effort to spur the enthusiasm of the specta- tors. Worried expressions of Kay Reynolds, Debbie Smith, and Janie Burrows mirror the urgency of the situation during a bleak moment in an eighth grade basketbaU game. 106 Colts Capture Concord Relays Championship As Richard Van Lear races towards a school record, Wayne Vail prepares to clear a high hurdle. It takes more than talent to have a great team. Intangibles such as spirit and teamwork helped to make the 1968 edition of the track team the best one of all. Whether it was through running a great race or just cheering their teammates on to victory, Alleghany’s boys came through. Although inexperienced, the team trounced Covington 85—33. After two nip-and-tuck battles, Buffalo Gap, Rockbridge, Lx)rd Botetourt, and Clifton Forge were rolled back in triangular meets. Intent on building up a lead over Nolley of Buffalo Gap in the mOe relay, John Barineau strains to build up speed as he receives the baton from Leonard Jones. John Bradley begins to “bum” his opponent in the 880 relay as Rocky Washburn finishes his leg of the race. 107 Young A.C.H.S.

Richard VanLear seems to be vaulting Horse Mountain too as he clears the cross bar at ten feet. John Carson Bradley breezes towards the tape in the 100 yard dash as Donald Allen and Mike Kirkland of Clifton Forge and teammates Mike Sams and Vernon Mosby struggle to the finish. J.V. track team: Ih Fitzgerald, S. Showalter, J. Sizer, J. Jones, J. Salyers, T. Greene, R. Littleton, L. Walton, J. Lemon. Because of its ability to pick up points in most events, a sign of great depth, the team romped past a weak James River team and made Clifton Forge succumb a second time. With their minds set on vic- tory, the team invaded West Virginia and captured the Con- cord Invitational Relays Group II championship, to the dismay of Narrows and six other teams. Rapidly earning recognition, Alleghany easily downed four other area teams in a night meet, and advanced to the District V Meet with an unblemished 6—0 record. Fort Defiance and Riverheads combined to hold the team to a close third. But partial revenge was gained with a fine seventh place finish at the State meet the next week.

Team members swamp Keith Scruggs following his winning pitching against the Wilson Memorial Hornets. District champions! But it took a precise balance. These great boys of the 1968 baseball team had the magic of outstanding pitching, hitting, and defense which makes a good team into a great team. They well deserved the 13—1 record they compiled. Keith Scruggs got the season off to a rousing start by striking out 15 in route to a 3—1 two hitter win over Buffalo Gap. Rockbridge was passed 11—0, but it was a bitterly disappointed team which returned from Wilson Memorial saddled with a 7—2 loss . In an 11 inning pitchers’ duel, Scruggs held off the Indians by striking out 16 batters while Steve Crawford won the game against Fort Defiance with a two run homer. In the first home game of the year. Rod Fridley led the charge on the Riverheads Gladiators in a 10-0 win. Clifton Forge proved to be a harsh contender, but Alleghany rallied to gain a 5—4 verdict.

Almost too funny to believe, the Colts ran up a football-type score of 24-10 against the Buffalo Gap Bisons, and continued their good hitting in a victory over Covington in a 14-8 outing, gaining another win for Fridley. Wilson Memorial fought hard, but in vain, as the Colts gained a 3-0 revenge win. Closing out the home season, Alleghany beat the Fort Defiance Indians in an 8 -2 flogging.

Not only did the Alleghany Colts win the District championship by a full two games, but Coach Joe Carpenter won coach-of-the-year honors, joining the aU-area team with Crawford, Stinnett, Williams, Nicely, and Scruggs. It was undoubtedly a great year, but with luck and another superb balance, Alleghany’s talented boys will be able to match it.

At Alleghany County High School the Future Business Leaders of America is a national organization composed of students enrolled in business courses. The main purpose of the FBLA is to acquaint its members with the business world. It accomplishes this by having guest speakers from different local businesses and also by taking a field trip to the Hercules Incorporated. Under the guidance of Mrs. Bush, Mrs. Sams, and Mrs. Swartz, the FBLA meets twice a month. Among their many activities, they send representatives to the State FBLA Convention. Also, this year the candidate for Miss FBLA representing the Madison District, is Barbara Persinger a member of the ACHS chapter of the FBLA. Being a very active club, the FBLA has a service project for each month. During Christmas, they prepare a basket of clothing, food, and toys for a needy family. Another project is making holiday favors for the residents of local nursing homes. Each year the FBLA holds a very impressive induction cere- mony. Activities of the FBLA are for the betterment of the members as well as of the community. Concluding the club activities, the members hold the annual picnic. This picnic is also for next years members. Members of tlie F ' BLA prepare to distribute Christmas gifts. 138 As They Prepare For Business Careers 1968 officers of the FBLA are J. Hannah, C.

The Sr. Tri-Hi-Y was the host to the annual Valley District Conference on November 1, 1967. The theme of the conference was “Brotherhood Around the World.” At Christmas the Sr. Tri-Hi-Y members visited Taylor’s Nursing Home and sang Christmas carols for the elderly patients. The girls, assisted by the Key Club boys, sponsored the annual Sweethea rt Dance. This year the club chose for the theme, “Come Along With Me To The Sweetheart Tree.” Among the different activities, the club hosted a radio show, “Disc Jockey of the Week” on Radio Station WCFV. The group told about its previous activities and discussed plans for the future. To conclude the club’s activities, representatives Beckie McCaleb and Camilla Bennett, were sent to Richmond for the Model General Assembly. Susan Powell represented ACHS in Richmond as Bill- Co-ordinator of the House. These girls were accom- panied by Miss Burton, the club’s sponsor. PhyUis Boerner gives a treasurer’s report at a regular Sr. Tri-lli-Y meeting. Standing are Phyllis Boerner and Beckie McCaleb.

At Alleghany County High School the Jr. Tri-Hi-Y consists of girls in the eighth, ninth, and tenth grades. This year the club’s sponsor is Miss Pauley. Promoting Christian leadership and preparing these girls to accept the responsibilities of becoming members of the Sr. Tri-Hi-Y is the main purpose of this organi- zation. Clean living, clean scholarship, clean sportsman- ship and clean speech, the club’s motto, are instilled in all its members. Attending an officer’s workship at Valley Higli School prepared the officers for their duties and responsiblities to the club. Participating in several money-making projects, such as bake sales and selling Christmas bows, the Jr. Tri-Hi-Y members gained much experience which will enable them to face the obligations of being Sr. Tri-Hi-Y members. As a school project the club took an active part in helping the Sr. Tri-Hi-Y host the Valley District Con- ference. As the year came to an end, the members looked forward to being in the Sr. Tri-Hi-Y where their activities and responsibilities will be greater. Several members of the Jr. Tri-Hi-Y take subscriptions from teachers for Christmas ribbons. The officers, Susan Bess, Debbie Fore, Marsha Dressier, Mary Beth Bodell, Julie Farrar, and Track Dickson make plans for the conference in Lynchburg. - KVG’s Learn Valuable Skills In Fire Fighting First Row; George Stinnett, Michael Brewbaker, Clyde Rose, Donald McDaniel, Lee Simmons, Timothy Sparks, Robert M.

It is the duty of the Alleghany County High School KVG’s to aid in protecting these valuable resources. They are, without reser- vation, on call at all times to assist the Forestry Department in its work. With this chief aim in mind, the KVG’s bring honor to ACHS with their abilities and serve as patriotic citizens for the good of their fellow men. Probably the largest club at ACHS, the KVG’s still hold no regular meetings; however, the importance of the organization is not in die least minimized since these boys perform such worthwhile services.

Some of the most exciting moments at Allegliany County High School this year came when the PATRIOT went on sale. Everyone was always eager to read about the latest club activities and sports events, and to get the low down on all the school gossip. The PATRIOT editorials provoked much serious thought and did much to arouse school spirit. Under the leadership of Mrs. Karter, the PATRIOT staff produced a product pleasing not only to the students but to many journalism critics as well. In recognition of their achievements the staff received a first place award at the annual conference of the Southern Interscholastic Press Association. To end a very productive year the PATRIOT staff produced a literary magazine featuring literary works by members of the student body. Max Shawver bids for Mr. Walker’s attention at a press conference. Marshall Leitch distributes copies of the PATRIOT just before selling time. Sue Redman works diligently as she prepares covers for the literary magazine. 143 STUDENTS 144 GROW AND MA TURE A S THEY PROGRESS INTO WORLD Eighth Graders Discover High School To Be CLASS OF 1972 Coming to grips with an environment totally alien to them, the eiglith grade class so adapted themselves to higli school life at ACHS. Though they were not allowed to be a part of many clubs, sports, or social activities, they remaiired a definite part of the school. They sported their own athletic squads in football and basketball, their own cheerleaders, and their own singular type of spirit, which was admired by many an upperclassman. Class of ’72 endured the time-honored eiglith grade traditions of upperclassmen disdain, confusion, and standing up in assemblies. Yet despite their youth, they expressed themselves ma- turely independent — scholastically, athletically, and crea- tively. Their school spirit and loyalty to Alleghany could easily be recognized by their pep at games and rallies, and by the efforts to help ACHS win a bottle cap contest sponsored by radio station WCFV. Eighth grade football and basketball teams showed plenty of hustle and enthusiasm, with winning seasons to prove it. Aspiring eighth grade writers made themselves known by their numerous works in the literary magazine, “Hoofprints,” not to mention the fact that there were few days when the Patriot suggestion box was not filled with distinctive eighth grade gossip. Yes, it can hardly be denied that the Class of 1972 proved itself capable to carry on the spirit and fine records so characteristic of previous classes at ACHS. Nancy Harrison protrays a typical eighth grader in her confusion in locating the right room number. 146 Fascinating Experience A ccented By Sports, Bobby Wayne Angle Arthur Lewis Anthony Nancy Caroleen Archie Deborah Jean Armen trout Donna Marie Armentrout Vickie Renee Armentrout Effie Elizabeth Armstrong James Michael Armstrong Karen Suzanne Averill Donna Sue Ayers Lisa Ann Barker Connie Sue Barrington Robin Marie Bartley Andrea Kathleen Basham Joann Carol Bates Phyllis June Bates Edward Ervin Bennett Ronnie Lynn Bennett Virginia Dale Bess Donna Kaye Black Gary SuUivan Bland Arlene Faye Bogar Marlene Kaye Bogar Michael Humphries Boggs David AUen Boone Lois Ann Bowen Richard Frank Bowen Aubrey Luther Bowling Beverly Ann Bowyer Barbara Ann Brackenridge Michael Rubin Brackenridge Patricia Marie Brackenridge James Gordon Brackman Pamela Dare Brown Deborah Lynn Burch Elizabeth Beth Burks Janet Lee Burrowes Albert Dennis Bush Beauford Miller Bush Joyce Marie Bush Carolyn Elizabeth Buzzard Bonnie Sue Byer David Lowry Byer Debra MeUsa Marie Byer Homer Clemmer Byer Dennis Lee Byrd Gary Osbum Campbell Judy Ann Campbell iti 147 Confusion, New Faces And Routines O a A Michael Leo Carter David Eugene Charles Linda Sue Clark Robert Lee Clark George Edward Clemons Bobby Eugene Cline Jerry Reid Curtis Claude WUliam Deacon Becky Sue Dow ' ney Randolph Wayne Downey Gilmer Hill Dressier Sherry May Dressier Julian Robert Entsminger Sue Carol Fisher Kevan Jeter Fitzgerald Dreama Dawn Flenner Sharon Ann Franson Barry Rexel Fridley Michael Elwood Fridley Sandra Lee Fridley Martha Alice Frye Earl Foster Fuller, Jr. Lucille Ethel Garrett Susan Gail Goode Daryl William Greene Allen Lee Griffen Judy Gail Griffith Gary Douglas Gumm Dorotliy Elaine Hall James Madison Hall Charles Lindberg Hamilton Ada Elizabeth Harless Doris Laverna Harlow Kay Lynn Harrelson Nancy Leigh Harrison Ronald Keith Hawse Kathleen LaVeme Haynes Gregory Vernon Hayslett Larry Kenneth Hayslett Barbara Lynn Hicks Kathy Darlene Hicks Leonard Crew Higgins, Jr. Joyce Carol Hinkle Eunice Loree Hoke Gary Thomas Hoke Sandra Kay Holestin George Michael Howard Robert Douglas Howard 148 283 Eighth Graders, Filled With Anticipation, Pamela Marie Hughes Teddy Arthur Humphries, Jr. Linwood Sterling Hunter Ruby Ardelia Hunter Russell Lee Hunter Jeanette Evonne Irvine Judy Ann Irvine Emily Claudine Johnson James Muirell Jones John Paul Jones, Jr. Michael Cleo Jones Wanda Irene Kellison Randall Brian Kranz Pamela Lynn Long Larry Scott Maddy Milton Collier Mays Edward Alexander McCuUey Carol Ann Meadows Rhonda Lee Meadows Carl Richardson Montgomery William Eugene Morgan Deborah Anne Morris Donald Edward Nelson Marchita Layne Nelson Dennis Wayne Nicely Effie Jane Nicely Gary Lee Nicely Harlan WiUiam Nicely John Franklin Nicely Jonathan Nicely Mary Catherine Nicely Allen Wayne O’Conner Kenneth Allen Osborne Lawrence Jefferson Pacal Dreama Sue Paitsel Jerry Michale Paitsel Karen Louise Paitsel Shyrl Dianne Paitsel Ralph Winston Patterson Rebecca Ann Pedigo Richard Eugene Pedigo Gary Allen Persinger Peggy Lynne Persinger Reba Melissa Persinger Ronald Eugene Persinger Steven Lewis Persinger Eugene Madison Peters Rebecca Ann Peters 149 Zeal, Determination, And High Hopes Carol Picrannunzi Richard Carlton Poe, II Stephen Brady Posey Rosemary Lynne Powell Rebecca Lynn Plymale Gary Taylor Price Pamela Christine Quarles George Lynville Quinlan Brenda Sue Reed l- ' rancis Allen Reese Ramona l aye Reid Michael Douglas Rivas Michaella Kay Reynolds Gary Wayne Robinson Frank Lee Roland Elizabeth Kay Rooklin Andrew Steven Rowan Roy Bryan Rudy James Ernest Salyers James Melvin Sampson Beverly Jean Sartain Larry Scott Schoppmeyer Russell Lee Shaw Marilyn Virginia Shiftlctt Patricia Paige Showalter Nancy Carol Simmons Jonathan Kent Simpson Patricia Dianne Sink Angela Ann Sizemore James Edward Sizemore Frank James Sizer, 111 Allita Karen Smith Beverly Dianne Smith Deborah Jean Smith Gary Neil Smith Leroy Bruce Smith Patrick Andrew Smith Roberta Lynn Smith Sherry Lynn Spangler Patricia Lane Sparks Elizabeth Dianne Spellman Joy Louise Stanley Jean Darlene Steele Roscoe Bolar Stevenson, 111 Wilton Fiugene Stogdale Jackie Lynn Stone Dennis Lee Stull James Alan Swaim “Beaver” Nicely dis- trials of being a con- 150 Begin The Long Climb Toward Graduation covers one of the fused eighth grader.

Ninth graders, though accustomed to the rigors of higli school life, still found ACHS to be full of new experiences. They found that there was a whole new field of activities open to them, which they could enjoy even more due to the fact that they were familiar with the demanding schedule at Alleghany. Freshmen discovered that, while their eighth grade sched- ules had been almost stereotyped copies, their promotion to the ninth grade allowed them to take their choice of many electives, among them Home Economics and foreign languages. As they began to take courses in their particular interest areas, they found that they could further pursue these interests through school organizations, such as FNA, FT A, and KVG’s. At the same time they discovered clubs, the freshmen also discovered J.V. sports. Ninth grade boys were now eligible for either J. V. or Varsity squads in all sports offered at ACHS. Many ninth grade girls went out for either girls’ basketball or cheerleading. The enthusiasm of ninth graders left no doubt in anyone’s mind that the freslmien were completely devoted to Alleghany High School, and were here to stay. 152 As Eighth Graders, Jumped Into The Full David Charles Aman Joyce Marie Anderson Charles Douglas Anthony Dennis Leslie Armentrout Joe Michael Arrington Henry Gilbert Baker Dianna Susan Barger Elizabeth Dodson Barineau Rolen Burton Belcher Karen Elizabeth Bennett Mark Emerson Bennett Norma Lea Bess Danny Ray Black Virginia Eloise Blakey Larry Wayne Bland Jean Carol Bocook Mary Beth Bodell Gary Wayne Boemer Nancy Lynn Boerner Jefferson Isiah Bogar James Matthew Bolden Bonnie Jane Boone Gordon Etley Bostic Douglas Alan Broce Walter James Broughman Richard Lynyal Brown Dixie Lynn Bruffey Glen Allen Blackwell Stuart Smith Brugh Basil Eugene Bryant Clinton Wayne Burks Louis Edwards Bums David Preston Byer James William Byer David Glen Byerly Richard Daryl Byers Lana Karen Caldwell Crystal Gayle Campbell Michelle Leroy Carson Robert Polk Chambers Darlene Mae Clark Rita Kaye Clark 153 Swing Of High School Life Delmas Keith Conner William Andrew Conner Grace Vivian Craft Norman Eugene Craft Paula Gay Craft Susan Kay Craft Tommy Lewis Craft Philip Andrew Curtis Sherry Darlene Daniel Wesley Alan Dew Linda Jean DePriest Ricky William Dillard Deborah Lynn Dodd Donna Leigh Dodd Judy Ernestine Dodd Celia Lorraine Donovan Julia Ann Downey William Doyle Downer William MacKerson Dressier David Stafford Dulaney William Rush Duncan Julie Ann Larrar William Batten Larrati Walter Nelson Lerguson Gary Alvin Lisher Michal Eugene Lisher Robert Lee Lridley William Oliver Lridley Debra Kay Fore Willie Lee Fury Gary Roscoe Garrett Richard Paul George Robert Lewis Givens Terrie Gumm Gary DeU Hall Julia Rose Hammond Jess Jonathen Hand Dorothy May Harris William Eugene Haskins, Jr. Richard Lee HelmintoUer Deborah Stewart Henson Samuel Huston Hepler Sue Karen Hepler 154 Ninth Graders Displayed Their Spirit As Darius Leroy Hylton James Harold Hicks Linda Susan Hicks Beulah Marie Higgins Glenn Lewis Higgins Raymond Lee Hubbard Barbara Sue Humphries Carol Louise Humphries Ronnie Wesley Hunt Brenda Victoria Hyler Clyde Davis Jarvis Bernard Lynn Jefferies Bruce Sheldon Johnson Elizabeth Diane Johnson Michael Stephen Johnson Ophelia Deloris Jordan Marie Antoinette Jordan Frances Sharon Kanney Beverley Faye Keaton David Ray Keaton Jane Faye Kern Gary Howard Kilian Margaret Diane Kimbo Patti Page Kitt Rolando Buchman Kopak Frank Edwin Kruszyna Clyde Howard Landis Dennis Robert Lawler Baxter Alexander Leech Deborah Sue Letler Earl Monroe Lemon, Jr. Jack Orville Lienhardt Jerry Wayne Lindsay Mary Ellen Lindsay Carol Elizabeth Lindsay Robert CUngan Littleton David Lee Live say Cynthia Sue Lockard Larry William Loving Robert Marshall Loving, HI Charles Timothy Loving Robert Dale Lugar 155 Cheerleaders, J.

They were faced with many new and intriguing sensations, among them, varsity sports (in which some of them chalked up impressive records), upperclassmen activities, second year languages, and biology. To the tenth graders, they often took on tlie appearance of an unrehearsed, unanticipated “hap- pening.” Yet, they were not so swept up that they did not plan ahead. Seeing that they were only a step away from the eleventh grade, and realizing the responsibilities they would face, they began laying the groundwork for the work they would perform as juniors. They elected capable class officers to guide them and established and collected class dues. Their next year promises to be a most fulfilling one for them, for their enthusiasm and school spirit is unwavering and any class might do well to imitate their example. C. E. Andrews displays much athle- tic ability in his first year on the varsity squad, as he drives in for a lay-up.

Bill Humbert, President, Rob Pedigo, Vice-President, Peggy Hylton, Secretary, Brenda Hayslett, Treasurer, lead the Grand March at the Prom. Few people would argue with the statement that a person’s junior year in high school is one of his most enjoyable, and most hectic experiences. From the beginning of the year the eleventh graders worked almost mcessently, with the Prom in May being the central motivation of almost everything they did. Their first task, performed almost immediately after school opened, was the election of officers. These in turn appointed the various committees which covered the main aspects of the Prom. One of their principle concerns was that of finance. To secure as much of this commodity as possible, they turned to several projects, aside from their monthly dues. Their lirst project was the sale of class pins in the late fall. This not only brought in funds, but also helped to boost class and school spirit. Hardly completing this project, they took over the concessions at all the home basketball games. Their next activity proved to be more than just a money maker, though it did account for a sizable portion of their finances. It was the class play, “For Heaven’s Sake.” Much well-deserved praise was given to this performance and to the performers. Each showed he was versatile enough to be two persons at one time-himself, a rushed junior, and a character in the play. By this time the Prom was almost too close for comfort, and all the juniors directed their efforts toward it. Now began the actual decoration and building. Finally, Prom niglit came, and their labors bore fruit. Everyone was swept up by the originality and beauty of the Prom, “A World of Stars.” Then, the Prom was over, and with it the year was almost done. Many a tired junior gazed back over the year wistfully, and then turned and looked ahead to see what the future would bring. 166 Memorable Events Proves All Too Short Greg Alan Anderson Jeanette Elaine Armstrong Karen Sue Arrington Ronald Wayne Arrington Joyce Marie Arritt Kaythyrn Sue Arritt Jane Lynn Barker Camilla Sarah Bennett Warren Hayes Bennett Janice Day Bethel Alice Faye Bocook Phyllis Marie Boone Preston Lee Boone Minitree Emmanuel Bowles Donna Jean Bradley Helen Marie Bradley John Carson Bradley William Bradshaw Rose Lynne Branham Sheryl Nelson Bridges Linda Carol Broughman Carolyn Blanche Byer Elizabeth Ellen Caldwell Gary Allen Cale 167 Eleventh Graders Earn Eunds Through Dues, Donna Jean Clark Donald Lee Cody Carolyn Ann Conner Sandra Dale Craft Sylvia Jane Craghead Catherine Joy Cummings Dawn Jeneal Curtis Carl Custer Myra Davis Leslie Blair Dodd Elizabeth Louise Downey Carl Warren Dressier Paula Paige Dressier Philip Lee Eaton David Ray Fitzgerald Judith Michalene Fleshman Linda Kay Fury Deborah Kay Fridley Sandra Gail Garber George Benton Garner Alice Mitchell Garrett William Young Gilliland Joseph Elmer Hammond Robert Wayne Harlow Vernon Wayne Harris 168 Class Pins, Basketball Concessions, Class Play Theodore Melvin Hayes Brenda Joyce Hayslett Gerald Lee Hevener Emma Louise Hoke Sharon Ann Hopkins Barbara Ann Howard Brenda Jean Hughes William Herman Humbert Kathy Ann Humphries Charles Leon Jamison Irma Mae Johnson Leonard William Jones Mitzi Hepler Jones Robert Eugene Keith Penny Ellene Kellison Sue Lanette Kellison Sharon Odell Kersey Paul Steven Kesterson Linda Sue Kilian Winona Ann Kirby Brenda Gay Kitt Lana Rose Knick Albert Lewis Knighton, Jr. Teresa Lee Landis Linda Alice La whom 169 Juniors Display Their Talent, Versatility Anna Leigh Lawler Linda Lynn Lemon Roberta Sue Linkswiler Deborah Scott Lockard Michael Logan William Ollie Lowry Wayne Maddy Basil Leroy McDaniel James Gordon McGaha Ahce Myrtle Meadows Virginia Marie Meadows Lynn Marshall Miller Karen Sue Montgomery 170 Debbie Fridley, a junior, puts the finishing touches on her original mural on the library bulletin board.

Tliis may sound like a simple enough version of a standard procedure, but it is only the nucleus of a story so intricate it cannot really be appreciated. Naturally there were many football games, basketball games, parades, dances, banquets, exams, and other school activities during these five years. These things are all recorded, but the biggest, most significant things are to be found only as cherished memories of these Seniors. No one will ever know how many lifetime goals were set and aimed for or how many romances began or ended in the halls of this school. Class of ’68 began taking dues and saving money in the eighth grade for what were then two obscure, distant goals, Junior Prom and Senior gift. They saved money every year and as Juniors presented the play “Our Town” to help with the expense of the Prom. As Seniors, their own Prom, “The Isle Of Enchantment,” was behind and they looked aliead to the one they would be given. They refilled their treasury with profits from the Senior class play, “Tune in on Terror.” and gave themselves a beautiful banquet and dance. After their Senior Prom, they were still faced with one of their original objectives, that of finding a suitable gift for the school. They decided to give the school a trophy case as a token of a love which could not be expressed. Indeed, any gift would be only a small gesture for something that has meant so much to so many for so long. i£ Senior class officers, Larry Treynor, Treasurer; Donna Simpson, Vice-President; Wanda Lee, Secretary; Jon Kilian, President, meet to make final plans for the Senior banquet. 174 Seniors Looked Back On Five Happy Years At ACHS Qiarles Edward Adkins Robert Gene Ailstock Janies Michael Arrington Albert Dale Arritt James Allen Arritt Wanda Lee Ayers John McCall Barineau Charles Allen Bartley Deborah Ann Bennett Wilbur Russell Bess Phyllis Anne Boemer Delores Annette Boggs Donna Jean Booze Thomas Grey Botkins, Jr. Brenda Joyce Bowen 175 Class Play, TUNE IN ON TERROR, Produced Cynthia Lee Bowles Mary Virginia Bowyer Sherry Howard, Donna Simpson, Faye Persinger, and Greg Simpson discover that acting is a messy business as they remove their make-up following a presentation of “Tune In On Terror.” Monte Allen Brackenridge Wanda Faye Braselton Michael Brewbaker David Wallace Brisendine Lois Marie Brookman Ellen Katherine Brown Nancy Irene Brown 176 Chills, Laughs, In Response To Excellent Donna Jean Bruffey Charles Howard Burr Gary Linwood Bush Rebecca Claire Bush Carl Winfred Byer, Jr. Brenda Gail Byer Jerry Carlos Byer Thomas Alfred Callaghan David Warren Campbell Carman Jeneice Chambers Mary Sue Charles Betty Jane Childs Dewey Calvin Childs Ellen Sue Clark Frederick Allen Conner 177 Acting, Direction, Scenery, Special Effects Brenda Joyce Craft Stephen Mark Crawford Fonda Lynn Curtis Michael Preston Curtis Routh Ann Dainty Judith Ellen Deisher Lewis Lee Deisher Linda Faye Elmore Leslie Kanney Entsminger Bernard Cable Evans, Jr. Gwendolyn Louise Fisher Richard Melville Fountaine James Robert Freels Gary Walton Fridley Mary Virginia Fridley 178 Seniors Kept Nostalgic Memories Of Their Nathaniel Wayne Fridley Rodney Dennis Fridley Edward Eugene Frye, Jr. Eva Carol Fury Edward Gene Gaines John Douglas Garrett Richard Charles Griffin Janet Jewel Hannah Linda Carol Hardiman Barry Ellis Hayslett Frank Edward Hayslett Vernon Wayne Helmintoller George Thomas Herald Betty Eugenia Hoke Carolyn Jean Honts 179 Unique Senior Year; Their Last Prom, Last Jon Kilian and Edward Steger show the chronic symptoms of an advanced case of seniorities.

His cour- ageous outlook and bright disposition during his illness did much to boost the morale of those who knew him. His own personal faith was unrelenting during these various seizes. Those who knew “Lucky” were aware of his determination to graduate. Lucky’s attentive attitude in class and his faithful- ness to the band will long remain in people’s minds as ideals from which they themselves might benefit. The students and faculty at ACHS take this opportunity to pay tribute to “Lucky” Nelson, a student and a friend.

Fun comes mixed with sorrow, molding each individual into a well rounded person, with hopes and aspirations for the future and a feeling for the responsibilities and duties of today. Learning through both the classroom and the extra-curricular events of school and life, every student gains an insiglit into events, concepts, and, most important, people. One step in the path of understanding leads to another, forming a march into adulthood and its joys and duties. Every student follows a different course, depending on his abilities, desires, environment, and energy, but all trails eventually lead to the clearing where man can be free and happy, independent and yet dependent on his fellow man, as well as a useful and productive cog in the machine of society. It is to prepare each student for his place in life that the systems of education are designed. As one step in school follows and precedes another step, so do the s teps of the world. Life is not a treadmill; even when it seems to be still, it moves forward, because it has a definite beginning and an even more definite end. It is how far each person travels on the course of his abilities which determines his worth to the world. No man is an island; every man contributes to the whole, just as every man takes from the whole. As we face the world, it is with hesitancy and a little fear, but each man and woman leaves with the greatest aspiration of leaving an imprint on the path of life. 230 AUTOGRAPHS AUTOGRAPHS f r ■ji •« i - ) ?■ L 1 U i Ti ! ■ ■ w. 6y a.- ¥
