Epilogue 232 As Restless Sailors On An Endless Sea Zestfully cheering for a Colt victory over Covington, the fans explode with echoing roars of support. DUL In the senior class play, Alice Garrett expresses her desire for Mike Logan to “get lost” while Studying one of the more interesting science fair Susan Persinger and Debbie Lockard appear captivated. projects, Bobby Lawler conceives that the science fair is one of the best representations of our endless sea of knowledge. 2 We Are Swept Along The Tides Of Life The fact that physical fitness in one of the keys to a successful future is strongly exemplified by the exuberance of spring softball games in the girls’ phys. ed. classes. 3 Janice Nicely finds time to spend a few split seconds each day to make sure the new phone stays in good working order. Man is by nature a restless and aspiring creature. Students at Alleghany are not an exception. Each year several hundred restless, inquiring, and always rowdy eighth graders enter the halls of Alleghany for the first time. Each one longs to become an integral part of the youth establishment at ACHS. Anxious to participate in athletics, organizations, and social events, eighth graders often feel left out of the mainstream of teenage happenings. Such is not really the case. In truth, they are merely being swept along by first year experiences on which as upperclassmen they can look back with a feeling of nostalgia. Probing The Darkness For Peaceful Lands Exploring the endless realm of the scientific world, Mike Logan delves into the mysteries of the much unknown expanding universe. Confident of another Colt baseball victory, Kitty Charles skillfully presses the teams uniforms for the big game that day. Time brings about the change from impudent eighth graders to austere and proud seniors. As students progress from one class to another, they discover many facts about the world and some even more remarkable facts about themselves. In a sense, the walls of Alleghany enclose a “society in miniature” in which students can gain experience that will be of value in later life. The courses we study, the activities in which we participate, and the friends we make all help to determine our futures. But the determination of one’s future is not a subject to be dealt with in a hap-hazard manner. Students should use vision in making decisions that will affect them throughout life. It is for this reason that the teachers and administration of ACHS serve as guides during the formative high school years. High school does indeed see young people probing the darkness for better things, but we must realize that we will never attain our goals if we don’t exercise caution and restraint. Chris Pierannunzi steals a few moments of quiet solitude from the pressure of the outside world as she perceives visions of her future. 4 We Charter Our Courses With Care Diligently working trig problems before class, Martha Stephenson and Allison Newman find that this thought-provoking subject requires much time and effort. Miss O’Farrell guides John Thomas McCaleb and Alice Garrett in plotting their courses for high school and college. In widening the scope of student-faculty relationships, Mrs. Whiteside accepts a glass of punch from Wanda Bowers at an F.H.A. tea. 5 Ready To Face The Ever-Changing Tempest The vivacious energy of Molly Swartz, Debbie Smith, and Linda Kesterson leads the Colt J.V. basketball team through the thrill of victory and heartbreak of defeat. Minds intent on whether there will be a big pop test next period is often the dominant thought of many study hall students. High school students lead a fast-paced active life. Chapter tests, club meetings, pep rallies, rival games, formal dances; new chal- lenges appear on the horizon every day. Attempting to meet these challenges, Alleghany County High School has as its purpose the education of its students. But the education received here prepares one in many other ways than just “book learnin’.”. The very character and long range goals of an individual may be molded at A.C.H.S. It is most important that a man live by just principles and have high ambitions. If A.C.H.S. instills these forward-looking qualities in those it turns loose on the world, then it truly does its job. While doing last minute warm-up calisthenics before the start of the game, each player instills in himself a personal de- termination to win. 6 We Seek Distant Shores Beyond Gaining beneficial knowledge for their own business Sudden realization that she has reached the end of her high school journey brings careers Cathy Cummings, Phyllis Boone, Susan Craft, tears with mingled thoughts of the past and the future to Barbara Mottern. and Carolyn Byer prepare to operate the mimeograph machine. Seniors are rewarded for their twelve hard years of study as the underclassmen quietly rise to their feet while the seniors proudly march in. 7 Mrs. Barber Honored Proudly displaying tiny clothes for the all-important new arrival, Mrs. Barber prepares to enjoy one of her many farewell parties. Checking annual staff pictures and copy is one of Mrs. Barber’s many time-consuming jobs that greatly enhance the quality of the annual. Mrs. Barber’s critical eye for the quality of layouts greatly impresses the inexperienced annual staff. Mrs. Joyce W. Barber Madison College, B.A. English Sponsor, ALCOVA For Her Own Dedication Ring! Slam goes the door! “All right, class, get those bananas out of your ears and take out pencil and paper. You’re going to take notes.” Thus begins a typical senior English class under the direction of Mrs. Joyce W. Barber, a teacher dedicated to knowledge and young people. Her genuine interest in students, attitude towards teaching, and presentation techniques combine with her humor to make the most stagnant mind come alive with challenging ideas. By mixing fun with hard work, Mrs. Barber always has the attention of her students. Her pupils delight in writing compositions on such topics as “How do you feel about the school rule of no lolly-gagging in the hall?” She brings Beowulf and Macbeth into the classroom with knowledge and interest. Once each year Mrs. Barber shoulders the great responsibility of arranging the Homecoming festivities. Wliile narrating the coronation of the Homecoming Queen, she adds her own bit of splendor and beauty to the occasion. During seventh period Mrs. Barber sheds a bit of her teacher’s austerity and becomes more informal as the AIXOVA sponsor. Known to the staff as “Aunt Joyce”, Mrs. Barber is held in high esteem for her guidance and quiet assurance in times of trouble and deadlines. In each of her five years at Alleghany, she has strived to create an interesting and unique ALCOVA. With great pride, admiration, and deep appreciation, the students of Alleghany County High School and her own ALCOVA staff dedicate the 1969 ALCOVA to Mrs. Joyce W. Barber, a truly dedicated teacher and friend. Possessed with a great interest in school activities, Mrs. Barber’s attention wanders a moment from the enthu- siasm of the pep rally. Mrs. Barber, busily attempting to grade papers, jokingly tries to ignore the appearance of Bill Humbert and Jean Shawver. FACULTY . . . 10 Gives Guidance, Understanding And Encouragement 11 School Board Makes New Important Decisions The Alleghany County School Board is an organi- zation which shoulders many responsibilities each year. The Board must make decisions concerning new equipment for all county schools, salaries for school officials and hiring of personnel. All these decisions are made in a comprehensive and fair-minded way. Mr. C. M. Smith serves as the Board’s Supervisor. Mr. Smith acts as a go-between for the School Board and school administrations. The School Board and Mr. Smith are to be com- mended for their jobs well done. C. M. Smith, Jr. East Carolina University, B.S., University of Virginia, M.Ed. Members of the Alleghany County School Board are Mr. Frank Hammond, Mr. Bishop Pentz, Mrs. James Ginn, Mr. Delbert Helper, Superintendent, Mr. Waiter Hodnett, Mrs. John Snyder and Mr. Robert Burrows. 12 Mr. Cvizic Is Fair, Firm, And Understanding Dusan Cvizic Concord College, A.B. George Peabody College, M.Ed. Principal Dusan Cvizic, principal at Alleglrany County High School, is a man known for his sincere desire to help all young people to better themselves througli educa- tion. Mr. Cvizic is one to encourage the low in spirit and try to make the road to success a little smoother for all. In a busy day at ACHS, Mr. Cvizic will confer with students and faculty members on various personal, academic and extra-curricular problems and he almost always comes up with the near perfect solution. Mr. Cvizic is a fair, firm and understanding disci- plinarian and is respected by all the many students at Allegliany Higli. Mr. Cvizic, always an avid supporter of the many teams at ACHS, smiles During a lull in his busy day, Mr. Cvizic has the opportunity to walk his approval at the end of a rousing pep rally. leisurely up the hall toward the teacher’s lounge. 13 Mr. Walker Keeps A. C.H.S. Out Of Confusion Mr. Walker ends his busy day by addressing the student body with a multitude of announcements. With an e, pression of utter anxiety, Mr. Walker expresses his feelings about the last basketball game of the season, to the student body. Mr. Charles Frederick Walker Concord College, B.S. West Virginia University, M.S. Trigonometry, Assistant Principal, Coach Varsity Basketball Mr. Charles F. Walker is one of Allegltany County Higlt School’s greatest assets. As the Assistant Principal at A.C.H.S., Mr. Walker is responsible for much important paper work, the majority of class and extra-curricular scheduling and strict but fair discipline. Besides fulfilling his duties as the assistant principal, Mr. Walker also teaches trig to a class of advanced (?) juniors and seniors. Each fall before the mountains of paper work get him down, Charlie Walker takes time to coach the varsity basketball team. Anything Charles Walker does is done well. Without his helping hand, A.C.H.S. would certainly stay in a state of confusion. 14 Holbert’s Achievements Add Life To Alleghany As Athletic Director, Mr. Holbert frequently takes time to discuss the activities of the “Colts” with Coach Jonas. Charles W. Holbert Lincoln Memorial Uni- versity, B.S., University of Virginia, M.Ed., Administration Assistant, Biology Mr. Charles Holbert is a person of many talents. As athletic director at Alleghany County Higli School, he is responsible for arranging all the sporting events wliich take place each year. Mr. Holbert this year organized the District Five Tour- naments at Lexington, with the able assistance of Mr. Ed Strong of Clifton Forge. He arranges the bus schedules for Alleghany each September and keeps the buses running smoothly the entire year. Mr. Holbert is the man to call on to make sure the gym is in the riglrt order for any dance. He also teaches an excellent biology course and advises his many student and teacher friends when they come to him with a problem. With all these achievements, Mr. Holbert is certainly doing his part in making Allegliany the outstanding high school it is. Mr. Holbert makes a “spot check” on Mr. William’s World History test and gives a smile of approval. 15 Mrs. McCaleb, Mrs. Snead Head Office Staff Secretary Co-operation is often displayed as Mrs. McCaleb takes time from her usual routine, to help Mrs. Snead count and roll the day’s money so both can go home on time. Mrs. Ellen Snead Secretary The office is the nucleus of Alleghany County High School. Every student at one time passes th rough the office door to ask a question or await the appearance of Mr. Cvizic, Mr. Holbert or Mr. Walker. Starting at 8 o’clock every morning, Mrs. McCaleb and Mrs. Snead open the office for business. Mrs. McCaleb is responsible for the book store, the mail, and answering all the numerous and sometimes humorous questions of many inquiring students. Mrs. Snead is in charge of all the money which comes through the office in any one day. She helps students in the clinic. Both Mrs. McCaleb and Mrs. Snead have many other duties to fulfill in a day’s time. The student office staff comes in handy when errands need to be run or when either secretary needs to leave the office. The office at A.C.H.S. is the place to go if a student needs a shoulder to cry on or an ear to listen to the songs of success. Without the office, A.C.H.S. would no doubt fall to destruction in a week’s time. 16 And Keep School Running At Top Efficiency Members of the office staff have varied and numerous jobs. Doing the daily chores are Sandra Garber, Brenda Hughes, Debbie Fridley, Camilla Bennett, Bruce Johnson, Billy Williams, Jerry Wayne Lindsey, and Karen Arrington. An efficient bookkeeper, Mrs. Snead opens one of the many bills received daily at A.C.H.S. and prepares to record balances and totals. 17 Guidance Department Proves To Be Helping Not all students at Allegliany County High School know what to expect of the Guidance Department. Many students treat the counselors with an air of formality until that first time they have a problem and need a helping hand. Miss O’Farrell, Mrs. Reynolds, and Mr. Barton each year have the responsibility of scheduling all students from eighth graders to juniors. At the beginning of the year, the counselors give standard tests and file these scores. As the school year progresses, the Guid- ance Department helps the juniors and seniors become acquainted with the college boards and American College tests. As June draws near. Miss O’Farrell and Mrs. Rey- nolds are swamped with requests for tran- scripts and college applications. The Guidance Department is always a busy place but never too busy to talk to any student about any problem. Mr. Barton points out to Roger Whitehead that he must apply himself to maintain his high school average. James Craft seems much sur- prised when Mrs. Reynolds suggests a summer job before he enrolls in the D.E. course for his Senior year. 18 Hand To The New And Old ACHS Students Miss Nora K.

Barber Madison College, B.A., English, Sponsor, ALCOVA Mrs. Ann T. Barton Indiana University, A.B., English Miss Mary Litts Burton Madison College, B.A., English, Sponsor, Sr. Tri-Hi-Y Mrs. Jean Whiteside contemplates the possibility of skipping a section in senior grammar, so she can advance to British poetry. In the fast moving world of today, good communication is a must. The English Department at Allegliany strives to perfect the waves of communication among all students. In the eiglith grade, students begin a study of basic English grammar and first begin to explore the possibilities of com- munication througli hterature. Freshmen and sophomores expand their knowledge of grammar and realize for the first time literature is a very definite line of communication. Juniors have a chance to practice the grammar they have learned in past years when that first complete term paper is due for Miss Burton. Juniors investigate the American litera- ture in an effort to better understand the progress of com- munication in the United States. Seniors are introduced to the well-developed British lines of communication through British literature. Seniors must also review all areas of grammar. Througli the efforts of the English teachers at ACHS, students leave their classes ready to communicate with their classmates and the world. 20 The Lines Of Communication For Students Mrs. Betty B.

U.S. History, Social Studies Mr. Carpenter and Mr. Joseph Miller discuss the United States Flag and its meaning to new citizens after Mr. Miller’s talk to the Social Studies students. History is defined as an account of what has happened in the past. History at A.C.H.S. comes in many shapes and depths. Eighth graders through seniors have an opportunity to take history in some form each year of their higli school career. Eiglith graders moan and groan because the English ever settled in America, while freshmen and sophomores study the ancient cultures. Juniors are introduced to the history of the United States. Seniors are fortunate to study the United States government and the Virginia state government. This year was an especially interesting one for the Social Studies Department because it was an election year. The Department teachers arranged a mock election. Speakers from the Democratic, Republican and Independent political parties talked to the student body before ballots were cast. A.C.H.S. went Independent. Besides the mock election, Mr. Henry J. Miller, a teacher of Pre-Naturalization Classes in Richmond, Virginia, spoke to the students on “How to Become a United States Citizen”. With daily class activities and diversified outside follow-ups, the Social Studies Department is one of the most unique of all departments at A.C.H.S. 23 Mathematics Department Strives To Help Harvey Dobbins and Bill Siple over confidently try to help Kenny Higgins, who is bewildered by a geometry problem.

Mathematics is a subject which requires time, patience and a small amount of natural ability. At Alleghany, math is offered in a variety of forms. Eighth grade students are faced with the “new math” for the first time in their school careers. Freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors are given the options of Algebra I and II, Geometry, and a most fascinating Trigonometry course. Adding 2+2 and getting 4 is not as simple as it used to be, but the teachers in the Mathematics Department at A.C.H.S. strive to make it simple once again for every student enrolled in the math curriculum. E. Edward Rhea Lynchburg College, B.S. Math 1, Algebra II, Geometry, Coach, Track, Cross Country Doug Rogers, Barbara Dodd, Susan Fuller, Mrs. Gwinn and Freddie Baker engage in a challenging e.xperiment as they try to discover how many planes are determined by four points in space. 25 Physical Education Helps Students Maintain «£ ' . ' -X • Physical health is important to the well- being of any person. Students at Alleghany have a chance to improve or maintain their health by participating in the physical educa- tion classes offered them. Boys and girls enrolled in the classes learn various physical skills ranging from the arts of “Tink-a-Link” and “Lemi-Sticks,” native folk dances, to the proper way to pitch All-American horse- shoes. The coaches and teachers are ex- perienced helpers and all those leaving a class glow with its benefits. Karen Bess, Brenda Howard and Sherry Burgandine prepare for e.xercises as Miss Hoover calls roll. Miss Sybil Marie Hoover Lincoln Memorial University, B.S., Physical Education, Sponsor Miss Carter seems amused at Diane Slusher’s reaction to a Health quiz.

Advances With The World As Science Mrs. Flora Armstrong Roanoke College, B.S. Biology, Sponsor, Majorettes, Junior Play, Prom Mrs. Ethel Glover Madison College, B.S. Science Society today is based on a knowledge of advanced scien- tific teclmology. At A.C.H.S. students are exposed to courses ranging from general earth sciences to the more difficult courses of biology and chemistry. Two of the more advanced seniors, who had completed science courses offered at Alle- gliany, took a physics course at Covington High School. Scientific know-how m ust be put to a practical use if a person is to benefit from it. Science students at A.C.H.S. have a chance to apply their learning by participation in the annual Science Fair. Many students take the time to prepare and display a variety of projects. Field trips are another way of helping a student apply his classroom learning to everyday happenings. Mr. Newberry can be seen hiking his students around the school ground on a warm day and having them look for rocks and plants to use the next day for class discussions. Bruce Swartz, Van Wilhelm, C. E. Andrews, and Ronnie Shires were fortunate to be the guests of Vepco and take a trip to Bremo Bluff to see how electricity is manufactured. Science is an experience. A.C.H.S. instructors make the courses interesting and constantly challenging. What is learned at A.C.H.S. will serve the science students in the years to come. Classroom experience is displayed by Mary Ellen Walton as she conducts a Biology experiment with Mrs. Humbert’s guidance. 28 Students Learn The Whys Of The Universe Charles F.

Studies of cultures and customs of France, Spain and Mexico, and ancient Rome and Greece are offered to language scholars. French students enjoy the romantic swing of spoken French as Mrs. Blankenship guides their travels over France. The only countries in the world, where you can nap frequently and use double negatives freely, are the Spanish speaking countries. Mrs. Sumner guides the Spanish tour, allowing double negatives but no siestas! The ruins of Greece and Rome glow with life again as Mrs. Murphy leads her scholars down the Appian Way. Language is a new and different experience at A.C.H.S. Mrs. Blankenship dictates the final lesson of the day as Jim Landis, Nancy Burr, Judy I riel, Allison New- man, and Debbie Smith prepare to present their French debate. 30 Business Dept. Is A Vital Step To The Future Students enrolled in A.C.H.S. are fortunate to have a chance to learn the arts of an ever-changing business world. Typing 1 and II are courses from which many students benefit. The more advanced business students, those interested in a business career, have the courses of bookkeeping, shorthand, business math, and office practice to master and put to use while helping the teachers and other students with problems of a business nature. Under the capable leadership of Mrs. Bush, Mrs. Swartz, and Mrs. Sams, the A.C.H.S. Business Department is on the move helping the everyday student become quali- fied and confident person in the outside world of today. Interested business students get an opportunity each year to visit the plants and factories in our area. Many accomplished students gain jobs in these plants after graduation and in the summer months. Broken arms would hinder most students in keeping up with their math class, but Walter Broughman seems to have the situation under control as Mrs. Bush instructs him to use the adding machine left-handed.

Leonard W. Baber Concord College, B.S. Music Ed., Band The Choir classes are an ACHS hallmark. Music has a special flair when presented by the Allegliany Chorus under the direction of Ted Farrar. This year the choir presented a Christmas concert consisting of various selections from around the world. Besides entertaining the civic clubs in the area, the A.C.H.S. choir classes organized and hosted the first annual District VI Choir Festival. The outstanding event for the 1969 ACHS entourage was the musical “The Sound of Music”. The final service rendered by the Allegliany Chorus was their participation in the annual Baccalau- reate Services. The Allegliany County Higli School Band is another of the school’s outstanding features. The band, under the capable direc- tion of Mr. Leonard Baber, entertains each year with a Christmas and Spring Concert and the splendid half-time shows during football season. Althougli their first duties are to A.C.H.S., the band has marched in many of the area parades and gained a fine reputation. T. F. D.

Art classes at Allegliany, under the watch- ful eyes of Miss Elizabeth Smith, have gained a fine reputation for the work they have done over the years. Each Christmas the halls and cafeteria at ACHS are attractively decorated with the original handiwork of the art stu- dents. The classes’ major project of the year was providing the exquisite backdrops for “The Sound of Music”. To finish the year, each student displays his best piece of work in the annual Art Exhibit after the Baccalaureate Services. The library at ACHS is more than a place for solitude and study. Erom here Miss Wolfe directs the magazine campaign and the ticket sales for the many stage productions which take place at Alleghany each year. Alleghany’s library contains a wide selec- tion of books on many topics for both plea- sure and research. Aided by a staff of well- trained student librarians. Miss Wolfe keeps the Alleglrany library in top order at all times. 33 Home Economics And Industrial Arts Train Mrs. Perdue assists Debbie Letler in completing her model tloral table arrange- ment. Home Economics is a course designed to help any girl interested in the arts of cooking, sewing and home management to improve her skills and gain new ones. In the home ec. classes, girls learn to cook a balanced meal, set an attractive table and host a formal or informal social function. To practice what they have learned, each year the Home Ec. classes entertain A.C.H.S. teachers with a formal Christmas Dinner and an informal May Reception. Home Ec. girls also give individual class style shows, so they can model their sewing achievements for each other. Boys enrolled in the Industrial Arts program at A.C.H.S. have a chance to learn a variety of skills. In the shop, boys master the lessons given them in wood and metal shop. They also can improve their ability in Mechanical Drawing by taking the courses offered. The higliliglit of the year in both Home Ec. and Industrial Arts is the week which the students change places. During this week boys learn to do simple cooking and sewing and the girls take a whole week to complete their simple tasks in wood and metal shop. Mrs. Maria B.

Althougli Driver’s Education is not a required academic study, many students at A.C.H.S. take advantage of this practical course for their own enjoyment and benefit. Under the trained and watchful eyes of Mr. Jonas, students can gain experience by being behind the wheel of a car. Before a student is allowed to practice behind the wheel driving, he must successfully complete a semester of classroom instruction. During the classroom course, students are tauglit the proper ways to make turns, use hand signals and plan for long automobile trips. D.E. students find Driver’s Ed. a very helpful course for many of them need to drive back and forth to their jobs. Distributive Education gives some students a chance to get two kinds of training at once. Mr. Duff, D.E. instructor, gives students the necessary background for their jobs in a special class. Even thougli D.E. students work in the afternoons at regular jobs, they come to school every morning for classes, so these students get practical and academic training at the same time. 36 From Experience And Gain Practical Skills Richard C.

I Mrs. Scholz points out a fact concerning the increase of mental illness in the United States to Rob Pedigo and Carolyn Wilhelm. Mrs. Florence H. Scholz State University of New York, A.B., Math 1, Psy- chology, Sponsor, Nation- al Honor Society Mr. Barton, Mr. Carpenter and Mrs. Sams concentrate on a question asked them by a psychology student during a student-teacher panel discussion about high school dating habits. Psychology is a study of people’s actions and reactions to certain happenings. The reactions of students to the course “Psychology for Living” at Allegliany is nothing but good. Spiced with panel discussions, skits, interviews and lectures, Mrs. Scholz’s classes are interesting and informative. Students enrolled in psychology learn to evaluate themselves in many areas. Areas of living discussed this year were dating, marriage, death and mental illness. Psychology is a course which will benefit each student now and in years to come in both personal and academic life. 38 Believe IT or NOT, Teachers Are Human! “Jack of All Trades Dunn” demon- strates his ability on the chess board to Mike Balser, Van Wilhelm and Buddy Ray, when Mr. Dunn is supposed to be monitoring study hall.

Also, the magnificent ACHS Colt remains in the gym instilling spirit into all who gaze upon it. Both Eliza Dolittle and the portrait of the Colt were unique talents of Cherie Suzanne Davis, Miss Virginia, 1968. Wanting to continue her musical career, Cherie has been attending the Shenandoah Conservatory of Music. After com- pleting two years of study at the conservatory, she returned to Clifton Eorge to compete for and win the Miss Allegliany Highlands title. Cherie arrived in Roanoke with higli hopes of winning the Miss Virginia pageant. She captured the Miss Virginia title and the talent trophy in Atlantic City. Her talent enabled her to be one of the ten simi-finalists at the Miss America Pageant. Returning to Roanoke, she was given a warm welcome by her many fans. Since her return, Cherie has surprised the students at A.C.H.S. with many impromptu visits to school. Students at A.C.H.S. applaud Miss Cherie Suzanne Davis, Miss Virginia, of 1968. Highlight of the Homecoming Dance was Cherie’s singing “Maria”. Miss Virginia waves to the crowd as she takes a ride down the Boardwalk at Atlantic City. Miss Virginia 1968 Returns To Her Alma Mater Glowing with overwhelmed joy, Peggy Hylton accepts the Queen’s Bouquet from Miss Virginia. During lunch at A.C.H.S. with Mrs. Thompson and Mr. Cvizic, Cherie sparks the conversation with a lively account of her adventures in Atlantic City. There were touching moments as Miss Virginia expressed her feelings to her hometown, Clifton Forge. As Cherie makes a new friend, she signs an autograph for Kathy Stapleton. 41 SOCIAL ACTIVITIES 42 ' Its- Provide Enjoyment, Friendship, and Memories 43 ■ Celebrated Alumna Returns To A CHS To Crown Smiling dreamily, Peggy Hylton is crowned Homecoming Queen of 1968 by Miss Virginia, Cherie Suzanne Davis. Hopeful of pleasing the student body, Sharon Hopkins is escorted on stage by Bruce Swartz. As she remembers her own reigning night, former Homecoming Queen Betty Bush Daniel shares the excitement of this moment with Peggy. 44 Peggy Hylton As Homecoming Queen Of 1968 Diana Stogdale appears somewhat appre- hensive as she faces the school in an assembly preceding the final balloting. Varsity cheerleader candidates Paula Dressier, Jean Shawver, Peggy Hylton, and Susan Persinger, hoping for a Homecoming victory, clamor for action from the team. Homecoming 1968 brought forth a flair of magic and a bit of superstition as the dream of every high school girl came true for six radiant young ladies. Homecoming week was fdled with a sad kind of joy as the candidates numbly awaited Homecoming night. The flurry of festive enchantment was accented by the appearance of Alleghany’s own Cherie Suzanne Davis, Miss Virginia 1968, who returned home to crown the 1968 Homecoming Queen. As the special night drifted swiftly closer, each candidate was known to have her own supply of good luck charms and nerve pills. Amid an aura of joy, tears, and spontaneous applause, the long-awaited moment reached its peak as Miss Peggy Ann Hylton was crowned Alleghany’s 1968 Homecoming Queen. To add that final, lasting bit of make believe to a magical Homecoming, Cherie sang “Cinderella” to the Queen and her court at the coronation dance. Candidates and escorts Paula Dressier and David Snider, Sharon Hopkins and Bruce Swartz, Peggy Hylton and Richard Van Lear, Susan Persinger and Greg Anderson, Jean Shawver and Bill Hum- bert, and Diana Stogdale and Ron Shires brave a moment of tension before the disclosure of the 1968 Homecoming Queen. 45 Imagination And The Excitement Of The Season Bubbling conversation and delicious refreshments highlight the intermission for Alan Craft and Sherry Smith, and Brenda Hughes and Bill Siple, as they pause to enjoy the decorations and share their Christmas spirit. Preston Boone shares a bit of Christmas wit with Carol Broughman as they dance to the enchanting music of R. B. and the Knights of Soul. Barbara Dodd and Mike Logan are greeted by Ole Santa as they an.xiously begin their climb on the “Stairway to Heaven.” The giant Christmas tree at the center of the gym seems to be getting no attention at all as Linda Riley and Larry Dew, Becky Simpson and David Snider, and Linda Linkswiler and Butch Simpson participate more in conversation than in dancing. 46 Accompany Students On The “Stairway To Heaven” Refreshment laden tables provide for one of the main attractions during the dance as the students keep the F.H.A. serving girls busy. Dancing on a cloud of happiness, David Snider is snowed by Becky Simpson, Alleghany’s first Snow Queen. Christmas spirit began early at A.C.H.S. as students decorated their lockers in bright colors, attended numerous parties after classes, and to the wonderment of teachers, wore jingling bells and insinuating mistletoe down the halls. Yet, the Christmas feeling reached its height only after the students began their climb on the Stairway to Heaven. As they entered the C hristmas Formal, the students found themselves con- fronted by fairy-tale ladies in flowing gowns escorted by dashing young princes whom they later recognized as their everyday classmates. Santa was there, too, and he watched as Becky Simpson wore the wreath as Alleghany’s first Snow Queen. Refreshments were one of the evening’s highlights for most of the students, while the sounds of the music kept everyone alert and lively. As the night ended on a Merry Christmas beat, the tired but satisfied dancers waved good-bye to Ole Santa and journeyed back to Earth bearing hearts filled with dreams of the oncoming Christmas. 47 Sweetheart Dance The Sweetheart Tree seemed to possess a special romantic attraction as it drew The night of enchantment quickly drifted by as Cupid made Doug Rogers and Jayne Sizer, Roger Burley and Roberta Li nkswiler, and Joe his rounds among those who danced away the evening. Massey and Judy Friel under its enchanting boughs. Two gigantic pink hearts presented a passageway which burst forth into a kaleidoscope of pink, white, and red. Small cupids and tiny hearts floated from a canopy of Valentine hues, as Cupid sent forth his lively little arrows toward every sweetheart who ventured into his realm. A frilly red heart, enscribed with the words, “I LOVE YOU . . .” expressed the sentiments of the couples who danced to the syncopated music of “The Fabulous Cobras”. The large Sweetheart Tree proved to be the center of attraction for the many who found time to relax in the love seat under its soft, silver branches. Debbie Lockard gets aU wrapped up in her work decorating for the Sweetheart Dance as Pam Warner lends a helping hand. 48 “Cupid Strikes Again!” Jean Shawver and Ronnie Shires, Brenda Hughes and John Williams, Leigh Thrasher and Bruce Swartz, Mr. Cvizic, QUEEN Paula Dressier and Richard Van Lear, Helen Bradley and KING Greg Anderson, Debbie Lockard and David Snider, and Roberta Linkswiler and Bill Humbert form the Sweetheart Court to honor the King and Queen of the dance. Intermission had a magic moment all its own as the Sweetheart King and Queen and their court were presented. Paula Dressier and Greg Anderson were Cupid’s prime targets as they were lifted to the majestic heights of Sweetheart King and Queen. Following the tension of the crowning, refreshment time proved to be a relaxing change of pace and a time for a few minutes to be snatched for conversation and needless make-up and hair touch-ups. Every girl who attended the dance carried home fond memories, tired feet, and at least one secretly removed cupid or heart to remind her evermore of the night that Cupid struck again! Stuffing the giant Sweetheart Tree proved to be a source of sore hands and broken finger nails for Libby Barineau, Debbie Reed, Martha Stephenson, Barbara Pearson, Juhe Farrar, and Marsha Dressier. Mike Logan portrays the clown of his table as he entertains Tom Perry, Tracie Dickson, Barbara Dodd, Donna Brisendine, and Harvey Dobbins during intermission. “Hootenanny In The Alleghanies” Lures There are various ways in which one may swing his partner and dosie-do, and Norman Craft, Beverly Smith, Linda Lemon, Curt Martin, Buck Ray, and Marsha Bosserman try out their own version. Nancy Burr really gets into the swing of things with her heel-kickin’ skirt-swirlin’ square dancing. Hillbillies streamed out of the mountains being pursued by many a young girl to the annual Sadie Hawkins Dance, “Hootenanny in the Alleghanies.” Freckles, pig-tails, patches, bare feet, and bibbed overalls were the “in” thing to wear as square dancing became the dominant form of entertainment. Signs with “Sadie’s Place” guided the students to a hillbilly heaven where newspaper streamers, balloons, and an old shack set the festive scene for an authentic country hoe-down. L’il Abner and Daisy Mae, who in real life were Steve Washburn and Elizabeth Rooklin, led the other mountain folk in square dancing, beau catching, and down right leg-slapping fun during the intermission. The foot-tapping music of “Ray Tucker’s Band,” and the cry of “Swing your partner dosie-do” kept the mountain people busy from 7:13 to 11:13, when they again returned to the hills to prepare for another year of idle waiting until the gals could take their beaus back down the valley. Daisy Mae and L’il Abner (Liz Rooklin and Steve Washburn) play the age old game of tug ’o war with a new twist — L’il Abner’s red striped under shorts. I 50 Hillbillies Down To “Sadie’s Place” The winners of the various dance and miscellaneous contests hold a little hootenanny of their own, as stow dance winners Leigh Thrasher and Freddie Martin, thirteenth couple Linda Kilian and Ron Shires, and fast dance winners Diane Spellman and Bob Shriver watch Rob Loving and Donna Ayers as they demonstrate their contest winning square dance steps. Sue Carol Fisher seems to have caught herself a beau in the form of Paul Riley, who apparently doesn’t mind being caught. These here bootleggers Ray Reed, Larry Hayslett, Steve Washburn, Clayton Nicely, Dennis Byrd, and David Patterson take a little time out to enjoy a Uttle rest and “refreshment”. 51 “Stranger In The Night” Provides An Sandra King demonstrates her powerful mus- cular form to an astonished, yet amused audience.

Backstage, the cast was tense and silent. Nerves were on edge, lines were rehearsed, and anxiety was dominant. The curtain opened on “Stranger In the Niglit” before an audience of over 900 students and teachers, and the play began. Immediately, all nervousness disap- peared and the twelve members of the cast were no longer a cast at all, but people who found themselves concerned with a murder. The long hours of learning lines, rehearsing, and being criticized were well worth the reception given the senior participants. Mr. Duff and his assistant directors, along with the stage crew and prompters, shared the worry of the cast as they excitedly awaited the outcome of the play. After many laughs from both audience and cast, the curtain closed, and the players, anticipating the night performance, made their bows to the thundering applause of their fellow students. Mable, with her mind made up to catch shy, backward Clif Newkirk, makes an advance attack while Clif retreats, shaken and embarrass- ed. Assistant directors Mrs. Bush and Miss Monroe point out a few minor revisions to prompters Pam Smith and Linda Kilian. 54 Junior Class Presents First One Act Comedy Miss Vleet covers the “Bachelor of the Year” story for the Register, as she snaps a photo of the newly acclaimed “Bachelor of the Year” and principal of Logan High School, Thomas Caldwell, along with Miss Evans, Miss Gustafson, Miss Baumgartner, and Alice Michaels, members of the faculty and the Young Women’s Professional Club. Treading in the footsteps of only two past Junior class plays, the curtain once again opened upon a stage of petrified, yet ex- cited, amateurs who, with ability, determination, and hours of prac- tice became momentary profes- sionals before an audience of over 900 students. “Bachelor of the Year”, an hilarious one-act comedy, was centered around the plight of a small town high school principal, who just happens to be unmarried, and is lured by his women employees into a vicious man hunting trap. Together with the make-up and stage crews, and the experience and talent of Mr. Richard Duff, the third Junior class play in the history of A.C.H.S. became an amusing success. The high school dramatics teacher. Miss Evans, practices what she teaches on the helpless Mr. Caldwell, as she aggressively proposes marriage. 55 Miss Baumgartner, whose muscles resemble a Russian lady shot putter, masculinely pounds out the bad points of her fellow romance competitors. “Bachelor Of The Year” Typifies The Junius McClendon, superintendent of schools, advises Mr. Caldwell on how to avoid the well-planned attack of three teachers to lure him into marriage.

Four long months of critical rehearsals preceded the opening niglit performance of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “The Sound of Music”. Be- neath Austria’s beautiful romantic Alps, the lives of the lovely Maria Rainer and Captain Georg Von Trapp coincided to bring to the audience an abundance of lauglrter, melancholy moments, and tears. Expertly directed by Mr. T. F. D. Farrar, the cast filled their roles with the ease of professionals. As a result, from the very beginning the presentation was destined to become a hit. Scenery was painted with an expert’s brush, the stage crew collected an infinite amount of luxurious props, and special instruction was given to the make-up crew to make the production a golden memory in Allegliany’s history. From the moment the curtain opened for the first act, the audience was captivated by the production’s beauty and professionalism. Standing ova- tions, echoing words of praise, and an audience’s swollen heart were indications of the quality and everlasting satisfaction that will be a manifest reward for years to come. charm to Georg as she and Max explain how love can I I 61 Surprised And Shaking Deborah Scott Lockard The twelve 1969 Miss Alcova Candidates, Alice Garrett, Susan Persinger, Leigh Thrasher, Paula Dressier, Jayne Sizer, Debbie Lockard, Jean Shawver, Sharon Hopkins, Brenda Hayslett, Phyllis Boone, Helen Bradley and Linda Lemon enjoy a little fun in the sun as their anticipation mounts before the announcing of the new Miss Alcova. In February each member of the Senior homerooms nomi- nated twelve Senior girls whom they thought would best represent ACHS. These girls were not only popular and well liked, but had also served their school in many ways. In March each of the top twelve nominated girls were allowed to spend at least six endless minutes before a panel of quick-witted judges, and were graded on poise, appearance, personality, general knowledge, school spirit, and dating habits. Finally in May, Miss Alcova was named before the student body. A silent hush fell over the audience as the fourth runner-up. Miss Phyllis Boone, was sought out and given a long stemmed red rose. Phyllis was Historian for the Future Business Leaders of America, the Senior Class Secretary, Prom Queen, and the winner of the American Legion Citizenship Award. One of Alleghany’s spirited cheerleaders. Miss Susan Persinger, was selected third runner-up. Susan was a member of the S.C.A., the annual staff, was an honor graduate, and received the Spanish academic award at graduation. 62 Mr. Armstrong, Mrs. Parr, Mrs. Stine, Mr. Rhea, and Mrs. Armstrong select difficult questions that will reveal the true personality of each candidate. Receives The Honor Of " ' Miss Alcova — 1969” Tears, happiness, crushed roses, and shaking hands were extremely noticeable characteristics of Phyllis Boone, Susan Persinger, Debbie Lockard, Brenda Hayslett, and Leigh Thrasher moments after their treasured selections. 63 Miss Alcova — Representing First Runner-up Dianna Leigh Thrasher Miss Brenda Hayslett, second runner-up, was another spirited member of the cheering squad. Brenda was also a member of the S.C.A. and the Pep Club. Six red roses were presented to the first runner-up, Miss Leigh Thrasher. Leigh co-starred in the “Sound of Music” and was a member of the annual staff. Senior Tri Hi Y, and Treasurer of the Pep Club. Leigh also received the choir award at graduation in return for her hard work and determination.

This year the award is again conferred upon a boy well-rounded in physical fitness, personality, acade- mics, and school spirit, better known to ACHS students as Robert Allan Pedigo. Rob not only excels in track and cross country to fill the physical fitness qualifications, but he has an unlimited acting and singing ability which led him to the lead role in the Junior class play as well as the male lead in “The Sound of Music” production. Leadership was another hallmark, in that he took the reins as S.C.A. President and guided the school through a successful year in student-faculty relations. Besides being possessed with a naturally outgoing personality, Rob was selected by his fellow senior class- mates as “Best Looking Senior Boy.” All of these outstanding qualifications, plus a touch of wit, humor, and a genuine understanding create Robert Allan Pedigo, a boy well deserving of the 1968-1969 Boy of the Year award.

For the sixth consecutive year the seniors joined as a group to attend their annual Senior Banquet. Several of the faculty and administra- tion had witnessed this event every year, but of course, for the Senior class this was their first success at unity, and it would be their last until graduation. Thouglr the food was delicious, the evening was made enjoyable only because of good music, lauglis, and most importantly, friends. At the close of the banquet, each of the senior sponsors was presented with a gift and a few choice phrases that miglit long be remem- bered. Mr. Charles Walker, the speaker for the evening, presented a humorous and enliglrtening address. Class president Bruce Swartz followed with his recalling of past experiences, which brouglit tears to the eyes of those who could well remember and who would not soon forget. Exhausted, full of food and snacks, and with the deep, glowing satisfaction of making new friends and growing closer to old ones, the seniors left the evening to itself to become another of the many memories of their last year. Bruce Swartz, Sylvia Craghead, Phyllis Boone, Linda Kilian, and Ronnie Shires share a few relaxing moments together after the banquet. Serving girls.

Early in the evening the Court of Royalty was announced. Princess Linda Loan, King David Snider, Queen Phyllis Boone, and Prince Joe Massie. 71 Arabian Flair Makes the Prom Unforgettable Bert Knighton turns on his hidden charm as he and Camilla Bennett admire an old Arabian tent. The cunningness of a beautiful woman and her husband’s love for her set the intense Arabian mood for the story of Scheherazade. Upon the sands of the burning desert, surrounded by ancient pyramids and small colorful Arabian tents, the tale of Scheherazade unfolded into a vivid and exotic dream. Many a junior and senior felt themselves cauglrt up in the drama of adventure on sandy deserts complete with heavy, jewel laden camels, towering palm trees, and an emerald green oasis with a clear, sparkling well that found itself filled with many a silver coin that carried a special wish. Twelve beautiful dancing girls related the story of Scheherazade’s dream with the grace and expression that was characteristic of the young Arabian maidens. The bazaars were filled with rainbow-colored silken scarves, richly cut glass bottles, and delicately woven straw baskets. The air was saturated with the higli- pitched music from wooden flutes and carried on its wings the heavy flow of incense. As the juniors and seniors slowly awoke from Scheherazade’s dream, they realized that what had been an image to her would always be a dream come true for them. Alan Craft sings his interpretation of “Ahab the Arab” as Rita Owens serves as his accompanist and Connie Broughman plays the role of Phatima. 72 Stopping by this quaint little oasis, C. E. Andrews, Jean Shawver, Linda Lemon, Leonard Ray, Mike Burley and Debbie Lockard count the coins in the bottom of the well.

Seniors Reach That Vital Facet In Life — Insecure and Uncertain In expressing “What Graduation Means to Me”, Sue Redman conveys the fond remembrances of five years of maturing together. The hardest part of graduation for each senior is the move- ment of the tassel turn that transforms him from a student to an alumnus. What goes through a senior’s mind when he is waiting nervously on that final night before he receives his dip loma? He remembers the past. Eighth grade seemed so long ago but at the same time, it was only yesterday. The graduating senior remembers entering Alleghany for the first time and being called a “punky eighth grader” and never finding the right room number or the right class. He remembers the sock hops when he kept forgetting to take his shoes off, or the first foot- ball games of the year when he wished with all his heart that the team would win, and then being disappointed when they didn’t. 76 They Face The World Bill Humbert, valedictorian, and Sue Redman salutatorian, lead 157 of their fellow graduates to receive their diplomas with honor and dignity. Tear-stained faces and thoughts of tomorrow are prevalent as the graduates of the class of 1969 leave the auditorium for their last time. Receiving a hearty hand shake from Mr. Cvizic, Gary Cale clutches a hard earned diploma. He remembers the long, noisy school bus rides to and from school, or the many, many hours of studying history, math, and English instead of going to the movies or getting together with the crowd. He can’t forget the Christmas Formats and those two special proms — or his favorite girl. These things are his to cherish for a life-time. With his diploma in his hand and his tassel on the left, he looks about him and he sees his friends, perhaps for the last time, and he realizes now that he must keep those wonderful memories in his heart while he looks toward the future. And with this in mind, he walks proudly, yet sadly, up the aisle and into a new and distant life.

U.S.’s 1968 Football Team Highlighting the 1968 A.C.H.S. football season was the fact that for the first time in several years, the football team was not plagued with injuries. Another factor was the entire starting line-up being composed of lettermen. Alleghany played excellent ball throughout the season, but especially during the Clifton and Coving- ton battles. However, the game that will be remem- bered most will undoubtedly be the 13-2 heart- breaker with Wilson Memorial. An anxious Colt team and a host of high-spirited fans journeyed to Staun- ton hoping to capture the District 5 Crown from the favored Hornets. The undying efforts were in vain as Wilson emerged with the District title. Thus ends a winning season of football at Al- leghany. Only memories, sore muscles, and confetti remain along with hopes for next year’s being a banner season for the Colts.

There were few bright spots during the season for the Colts although the gridders turned in outstanding performances of sportsmanship and drive. Despite the fact that a multitude of in- juries plagued the team and contributed to the losing season, the club cannot be marked as a weak squad. In their first contest, Alleghany held Clif- ton’s “little Mounties” to a scoreless tie. Disappointment followed for the next three weeks as the J.V.’s were forced into a score- less, winless, 04 record. The team had all but lost hope when in the finale of the season, they bounced back to defeat their leading contender, Clifton Forge. ACHS certainly possessed some good po- tential in its J.V. football team. Determina- tion, hustle, and fine coaching were charac- teristics that marked this squad as compe- tent. Opponent A.C.H.S.

However, the charges under the tutelage of Coach James Williams improved with each game and pulled through with a break-even season. After two games the little Colts were still looking for a victory. In their third game, the Colt offense finally played up to par and along with the help of the rugged defense, Alleghany posted their first victory over James River. Although AHS continued their spirited, hustling ways, they won only two more battles. Thus Alleghany’s eighth grade team concluded their year with a 3-3 mark. They now anxiously await their future years of football at ACHS.

Sherry Smith happily claps to the rhythm of a sideline. Spring of the 1968 school year saw many girls trying to capture positions on the Varsity cheer- leading squad. After weeks of practice, the stu- dent body selected nine girls to represent AHS as varsity cheerleaders. Six seniors and two juniors were elected. Several members of this year’s squad com- posed Alleghany’s first eighth grade cheerleading squad. Certainly, after five years of practice and cheering, the Colt cheerleaders deserve the honor of the area’s best cheerleaders. This title was bestowed by the local ne wspaper. At the District 5 Tournaments, AHS was well-represented by the Varsity squad who did an excellent job of sup- porting the team.

Experienced runners enabled the Colt stiLiad to place second in District 5 competition. Colt “coolie” Dennis Smith placed first in all district meets and was the outstanding member for Alleghany when he ranked second in the state. While obtaining and breaking his own records, Smith set an all-district record of 13:58.2 minutes in the 2Vi mile race. Wayne Lindsay, another Colt runner, should also be recog- nized, as he received the special honor of Most Improved. No one member of the team was responsible for ACHS’s success; team work was the major component. Alleghany’s runners ended the year with a fine mark as they lost only three meets in dual and district competition. Lind- say, Pedigo, Smith, Swartz, Wade, and Young will leave the team, but Coach Rhea will have good prospects again for next year. Opponent A.C.H.S. James River 39 20 Patrick Henry 27 28 W.M.

Opening the season in the winning column, the “Fillies” posted a close victory over their arch-rivals from Clifton Forge. High hopes for a winning season were dampened by a loss to Millboro the following week. But the taste of defeat only made the girls fight harder to improve their own record and those of prevfous years. During the rest of the season, the “Fillies” gained three more victories and three more losses. These games gave the team valuable experience guaranteeing a better season next year. Opponent A.C.H.S.

Alleghany’s Varsity Basket- ball season is over and in most respects it was very disappoint- ing. Things just didn’t turn out like most people had hoped. It wasn’t a bad team that caused ACHS to end the season with a 6-12 mark. This year the season seemed to be a matter of winning or losing by inches or seconds. There were many overtime games for the Colts and all but one came out wrong. The balance of District 5 was also a big factor that made anything possible. Four Colts averaged in double figures during the year. The team leader was C. E. Andrews averaging 17 points a game for a total of 307 points. Buddy Raye was the next high scorer. The sophomore guard contributed 303 points for a 16.5 average. Playmaker Jona- than Williams scored 206 points for an 1 1 .5 mark per game Captain David Snider scored 188 points for a 10.5 average.

It is also a challenge for the man who is responsible for guiding these charges through the basketball season. This year it was Mr. Tim Barton who undertook the task of molding these boys into fine basketball players. Although they did not have a winning season, the boys gained the fundamental techniques, and the hustle and desire which will benefit them in the future. Opponent A.C.H.S.

Throughout Season Alleghany’s J. V. basketball team began their schedule very slowly, and lost most of their games during early season play. As the year progressed, they really impr oved and were winning most of their tilts. Contributing to the Colt cause, was John McCaleb who led the squad’s offensive play, averaging 14.5 points per game. Dave Charles was top man at the free throw line with an average of 73 per cent. However, the credit cannot rest solely on the shoulders of a few, but must be distributed evenly among all. Though not successful in terms of wins and losses, the team was very successful from the stand point of hustle. The team was the best hustling AHS has ever had, and Coach James David Williams is to be commended for a fine coaching effort. Opponent A.C.H.S.

Winning ways were in store for the Alleghany wrestling team as they began their season with a triumphant victory over Clifton Forge.

Senior co-captains, Thomas Wade with a 10-8-1 record and Tex Hazelwood with a 15-5 record, inspired successful techniques in wrestl- ing. However, the fact remains that without co-operation among the grapplers, these tech- niques could not have been as skillfully executed. Alleghany made an impressive showing in its regional wrestling competition by placing fourth in participation with other schools. There were nine grapplers who placed at the regional bouts. Terry Platt, Mike Simmons, Tom Wade, and Tex Hazelwood received second place honors while Donnie Cody, Vernon Mosby, Kit Lemon, and George Quinlin ranked third. C. W. Bocook came in fourth making these boys eligible for state competition. In the state, Terry Platt, Thomas Wade, and Tex Hazelwood finished fifth.

Allegliany’s Junior Varsity cheerleaders, always in training to replenish the ranks of the Varsity Squad, were as spirited and capable as their “big sisters.” The skill and co-ordination of the group were not accidental however, as they spent countless hours practicing each movement and gesture which accompanied the many cheers. Beginning early in the school year, eight energetic girls embarked on the task of becoming a skilled squad of cheer- leaders; ingredients of such a squad included the zest of individual cooperation and abilities.

This year was no exception. First, the team as a whole showed great desire and hustle and individual determination was high. Second, there was at least one good leader in nearly every event. However, the leaders did not do it all; there were many new members on the squad who showed improvement through the year. Some of AHS’s better track men this year were miler Dennis Smith who was an undefeated State champion and unbeaten in the eight-eighty until the state meet, pole vaulter Richard Van Lear, and two-miler Joe Massie. Because of its determination and work Alleglrany’s track team won the District V track championship. There were nineteen boys to letter and thirteen of these team members will return in 1970. The six who will not return were seniors of outstanding ability. Vernon Mosby demonstrates outstanding shot put ability as he prepares for the District Track meet.

This proved to be surprising to some people for the Colts went into the season without a senior on the team. The starting lineup consisted of five juniors, three sophomores, and one freshman. So these young boys, under the coach- ing of Joe Carpenter became one of the finest baseball teams Allegliany has ever had. This year the pitchers were Buddy Raye and Jonathan Williams. Buddy won six of his games and lost one and Jona- than won seven games and lost one also. Both boys turned in superb Jobs on the mound. In tournament play the boys only participated in one game, that being with Fort Defiance, losing to them 4 — 3 . Thus ends another year of baseball at Allegliany with the past being bright, and with hopes for the future even brigliter.

Althougli the boys played against only two teams, playing each team twice, they learned much about the sport in which they were taking part. They found that not only physical skills were needed in creating a good baseball team, but desire and determination were just as impor- tant. Under the coaching hand of Coach Jenkins, the boys had a fine season and now await with anticipation the day when they can display their skills on the varsity team.

Jonathan Williams and C. E. Andrews were the only two athletes to receive three trophies but several well known Colt athletes were double winners. The awards were made by the Colt coaches. Jonathan Williams captured the sportsmanship trophy in basketball and picked up a pair of trophies for his great success in baseball. C. E. Andrews received a pair of trophies for sportsmanship in football and baseball, he also got a trophy for being the top scorer on the Colt basketball team. C. W. Bocook, Tom Wade, Joe Fourqurean, and Dennis Smith each received two trophies. Others receiving trophies were Jerry Lindsey, Richard VanLear, and Robert Pedigo. Alleghany certainly enjoyed a highly successful year of sports and the outlook for the future holds much promise. As recipient of the Most Improved cross country award, Wayne Lindsey proudly accepts his award from Coach Rhea. Junior Jonathan Williams receives the award of Most Valuable Player in baseball from Coach Carpenter. Co-captain C. E. Andrews glances admiringly at his trophy for being “high scorer” on the basketball team. 113 ORGANIZATIONS . . . 114 I Attribute To Knowledge Of The Upcoming Future 115 Alleghany Student Council Proves To Be Sally Showalter, S.C.A. treasurer, presents Leigh Thrasher with a $100 check for the ALCOVA staff.

S.C.A. officers Sherry Smith, Linda Hylton, Bruce Swartz, Rouert Pedigo, and Sally Showalter discuss an upcoming meeting. By far, the most effective and most influential organization at Alleghany County High School is the Student Co-operative Association. This organization, consisting of elected represen- tatives from each homeroom, helps to better and strengthen the atmosphere of harmony between the faculty and the student body of A.C.H.S. The S.C.A. has bi-weekly meetings during which members may bring up any problem which has been presented them during a school day. This year, under the direction of Mr. R. M. Loving, the S.C.A. has been most beneficial in improving conditions at Robert Pedigo, S.C.A. president, shows incoming president C. E. Andrews how to use the intercom system. Alleghany. The most apparent example of this is the method with which the S.C.A. handled the smoking problem. Another example is the sign the S.C.A. had painted displaying the school motto: “Knowledge; today’s torch for a free tomorrow.” The S.C.A. deserves the gratitude and admiration of the entire student body of A.C.H.S. For, without this organiza- tion, many of the problems at Alleghany would never be solved. 117 A CHS Honor Society Dubbed “The Franeis D. Jean Shawver taps C. E. Andrews as one of the 1970 members of The Honor Society. Debbie Lockard presents Carolyn Tyree with a twenty five dollar scholarship from the Honor Society. Front row; C. E. Andrews, J. Friel, J. Massie, C. Pierannunzi, S. Smith and M. Stephenson were tapped by J. Shawver, V. Wilhelm, P. Hylton, B. Humbert, B. Gilliand and C. Broughman as new members of the Honor Society. 118 Butler Chapter Of The National Honor Society” This year the foundation of a new club, The National Honor Society, was laid at AHS. Through the efforts of the officers, the members, and Mrs. Scholz, the sponsor, the club succeeded in proving its worthiness. The first task tackled by the club members was that of deciding upon a name. Since every Honor Society is designated as a chapter, AHS members chose to commemorate a former teacher by calling the organization the Francis D. Butler Chapter of the National Honor Society. Another important decision to be made concerned who was to be tapped as members of the Honor Society for the following year. This org anization is composed of those people who show outstand- ing ability in scholarship, leadership, and general school enthusiasm. To choose only six such individuals from the junior class was a difficult choice. As the first Francis D. Butler Chapter of the National Honor Society made its mark in history, it truly did master the job of proving its place among the many organizations at AHS. The officers of the Honor Society discuss plans for the induction ceremony. The members of the Honor Society are as follows; Standing: R. Shires, B. Humbert, V. Wilhelm. Seated: D. Lockhard, P. Hylton, J. Shawver, C. Broughman, B. Gilliand. 119 Outstanding French Students Receive Honors French club members gather in front of the school before attending an afternoon meeting; the members are: D. Smith, A. Newman, P. Showalter, J. Hinkle, W. Dew, N. Burr, C. Pierannunzi, B. Hughes, J. Landis, Mrs. Blankenship, J. Friel, S. Fisher. French at A.C.H.S. is a new select subject and the students taking French decided in order to understand their subject better they would form a French Club. The French Club like any other club held its annual monthly meetings but unlike any other club they carried on their meetings in French. The club members ' agreed that by their usage of the language and their using it correctly at the meetings it improved their speaking the language fluently. The French Club bestowed honors on several of their students this year. Awards were given to the outstanding French students and an award was given to the most deserving senior French student. To end a successful year as a club the French students held a picnic at Douthat State Park. The picnic proved to be an enjoyable afternoon. Knowledge of France is a vital element as the French Club officers Brenda Hughes, Judy Friel, Carol Pierannunzi and Jimmy Landis have learned. 120 Latin Students In A Busy World Of Today K. Arrington, A. Reyns, P. Warner, M. Stephenson, and J. Hammond search for an interesting program at an officers’ meeting. Students to whose ears the sounds of hie, haec, and hoc ring familiar gladly take advantage of the opportunity to join with others plagued with the same problems of declensions, cases, and verbs in the Latin language. The Latin Club affords this opportunity. By participating in carefully planned meetings and various social gatherings, students leave Rome in the days of 40 A.D. and become active in the busy world of today. This year Joe Hammond presided as president under the supervision of Mrs. Murphy, the club sponsor. Joe’s leader- ship ability and the club’s co-operative unity were made evident through the presentation of the annual Christmas pageant. This year the story of Christ’s birth was brought forth with astonishing realism as the members of the cast portrayed the long ago characters with sincerity. A delicious menu, an appropriate location, and a different program were several questions to be considered in planning for the yearly Latin Club Banquet. But, as in previous years, wise answers and suitable solutions were reached, and the banquet was again successful. Students challenged by the Latin language may long recall such verbs as amo, amas, and amat, but the hours spent with others in the Latin Club will be ever remembered. The Christmas pageant cast includes P. Smith, R. Montgomery, J. Hammond, L. Nicely, D. Rogers, P. Warner, T. Platt, C. Spraggins, B. Dressier, M. Stephenson, K. Arrington, and A. Reyns. Joe Hammond strives to create enthusiasm in the Latin Club members consisting of P. Warner, M. Stephenson, K. Arrington, A. Reyns, L. Nicely, S. Hopkins, R. Montgomery, L. Barineau, P. Smith, and D. Henson. 121 Spanish Club Membership Soars To Fifty Mike Logan speaks to the Spanish Club mem- bers: First row: J. Nicely, B. Warwick, J. Salyers, Mrs. Sumner, sponsor, M. Stephen- son, S.

Como esta Ud?” These words, Spanish for “Good afternoon! How are you?” are familiar to the students of A.C.H.S. who are members of the Spanish Club. The purpose of the Spanish Club is to help Spanish students to learn more about the language and the life in all Spanish- speaking countries. Most important, it helps to encourage a deeper understanding of Spanish-speaking peoples. Again this year, the Spanish Club sponsored a dance for the student body. The guests were welcomed to the gala harvest fiesta by a sleepy senor peacefully settled under one of the many corn shucks which adorned the festivities. The harvest was bountiful; many flashy orange pumpkins and ears of Indian corn added to the colorful “Harvest Time” spectacle. Mike Logan reviews fund raising projects with officers, Martha Stephen- son, Sally Showalter, Chris Pierannunzi, and Carol Broughman. 122 Butch Simpson, Linda Linkswiler, Helen Bradley, and Roger Burley pause to examine the Mexican under the sombrero at the Spanish Club dance. Nursing School Tour Highlights FNA Year Mrs. Reynolds, L. Nicely, J. Rose, S. Bess, B. Dodd, J. Fanar, S. Fuller, L. Barineau, S. Nicely, and N. Boerner look on as Roberta Linkswiler checks the bed-making of L. Tolley and S. Garber. Roberta Linkswiler, president, shows the other F.N.A. officers, Barbara Dodd, Linda Tolley and Susan Bess the proper method of taking a temperature. One of the several occupational organizations at A.C.H.S. is the Future Nurses Club. This club is especially for all girls who have a desire to continue their education into the field of nursing after graduation from high school. The members of the F.N.A. learn many things about this chosen occupation through the club. This year, the club made several field trips to learn even more about nursing. These trips were highlighted by a visit to the Roanoke Memorial School of Nursing in Roanoke, Virginia. 123 F. H.A . Sponsors Christmas Formal A nd Sadie Seated: R. Clark, T. McComb, M. Meadows, B.

At A.C.H.S. the Future Homemakers of America believe that the home is the backbone of every nation. Homemaking involves knowing many things such as good homenursing, proper health habits, child care, sewing of all types, cooking, table settings, food preservation and many others. All these are observed and stressed by the members of the F.H.a. As fund raising projects, the F.H.A. sponsored two big events, the Christmas’ Formal and the Sadie Hawkins dance; both were big successes. The theme of the Christmas Formal was “Stairway to Heaven.” For the first time, this year the F.H.A. members elected a Snow Queen and a Snow Princess. Many various types of prizes were given at the Sadie Hawkins dance for such categories as, best slow dancers, best square dancers, the thirteenth couple and the usual Little Abner and Daisy Mae. The F.H.A. members also used their talents in homemaking by serving at the D.E. banquet and the Athletic banquet. The girls’ skills as waitresses and their usage of the proper etiquette methods were noticed by all who attended. The girls were recognized and admired as excellent homemakers of the future. Becky Simpson is crowned Snow Queen and Marie Meadows Snow Princess during the Christmas Formal. 124 Hawkins Dance For Entire Student Body Students enjoy square dancing at the Sadie Hawkins dance.

For the improvement and betterment of this business world, AHS has established an organization for future leaders in this field. This year the FBLA functioned under the able leadership of the officers and the careful guidance of Mrs. Bush, Mrs. Sams, and Mrs. Swartz, the club sponsors. Linda Reynolds, president, and Sue Kellison attended a conference at Massanetta Springs before the opening of school to begin planning for the FBLA year. Further plans were made at a district meeting in November attended by several club members. As a result of many consultations, an action-packed agenda was arranged. The spirit of the Christmas season was shared with others as the club provided the necessary items for a delicious dinner for a needy family. Favors were also taken to residents of a nearby nursing home. Later in the year, several future business leaders participated in the events planned annually at Madison College. For further enjoyment, a picnic was held in the spring. Highlighting the year was the trip to Roanoke. FBLA members learned much as they toured the business colleges in the Roanoke area. AHS students who are interested in business occupations profit from the FBLA. Participants of this club will un- doubtedly become the business leaders of the future. FBLA officers L. Knick, L. Reynolds, C. Cummings, P. Boone, S. Craft, C. Byer discuss the efficiency of an important office machine. C. Cummings, J. Arritt, C. Tyree, Mrs. Swartz, and P.

This discussion was just one of the many ways the club members were encouraged to pursue the teaching profession. Much was learned about the educator’s occupation by students in the FTA who were chosen as substitutes for absent teachers. Other activities of the year included decorating the showcase for National Teacher’s Week and providing a reception for the faculty. Future teachers from AHS will be better q lified through the efforts of the FTA. Information on teaching is provided by faculty members during a FTA program. Members of the faculty, Mrs. Reynolds, Mrs. Scholz, and Mrs. Armstrong, point out the importance of keeping careful and neat records to officers L. Lemon, N. Thompson, B. Hughes, C. Broughman and M. Logan. Standing: Miss Monroe, L. Lemon, B. Hughes; First row: K. Arrington, M. Logan, D. Fore, S. Craghead, S. Craft; Second row: J. Anderson, S. Hopkins, M. Swartz, J. Worley, C.

The D.E. club is the only organization at A.C.H.S. whose training is both inside and outside the classroom. The D.E. program effectively trains students to face the business world with confidence and knowledge, always knowing what to expect and how to deal with the problems that arise. The D.E. classes of A.C.H.S. were well represented at the D.E. convention held in Lexington this year. At the conven- F. Wertz, E. Caldwell, and J. Slusher search the want ads for pro- mising jobs in the community. tion each officer was inducted into his or her office and made to realize the duties expected of them. Discussions on better ways of improving business and ways of convincing your customers were stressed. Competitive contests were held and several of the D.E. members at A.C.H.S. were able to enter into State competition. The convention proved to be en- lightening and successful to the D.E. members. Mr. Duff demonstrates a puzzling yet amusing point of interest to his D.E. students. 129 Tri-Hi-Y Cultivates N ew Friendships Left to Right; Miss Moore, Miss Gwin, C. Armentrout, L. Nickell, P.

Students entering high school in the eighth grade often find themselves lost and alone. To combat this feeling of insecurity, a club, the Jr. Tri-Hi-Y, for eighth and ninth grade girls has been organized. This club seeks to make the lives of each of its members more enjoyable by binding the girls together in wholesome friendships. This year the activities of the Jr. Tri-Hi-Y promoted togetherness. As a group, the club visited both the C. 0. Hospital nursery and the Taylor Nursing Home. The girls discovered their creative abilities when they designed, constructed, and sold vegetable corsages for the Sadie Hawkins Dance. Four of the members profited from the memorable experience of a conference at Massanetta Springs where they were trained for club offices. The Jr. Tri-Hi-Y is an important club, for it is a club for girls of today preparing for a better tomorrow. K. Reynolds reveals to the officers and sponsors the important events planned for the Jr. Tri-Hi-Y during the oncoming year. M. B. Bodell takes K. Charles’ order for an onion, radish and carrot corsage for her date at the Sadie Hawkins Dance. 130 Senior Tri-Hi-Y Exemplifies High Ideals Front row: C. Pierannunzi, J. Farrar, T. Dickson, M.

Angela Roberts shows Brenda Hughes and Sandra Garber the correct way to dress for football games. The members of the Senior Tri-Hi-Y busy themselves with trying to exemplify high ideals, morals, and standards. This year Camilla Bennett, president, led the club in many activities. A fashion show was presented in October to show the proper dress for many upcoming occasions. During Tri-Hi-Y week a display placed in the show case reminded the students of desirable behavior. Once again the Senior Tri-Hi-Y sponsored the annual Sweetheart Dance. The original theme, “Cupid Strikes Again,” along with the planning and endeavors of many members, made the dance an ingenious success. At the annual MGA Convention, Camilla Bennett attended as a Senator and Martha Stephenson served in the House of Delegates. Members of the Tri-Hi-Y make a better community as they follow the guidelines of “clean speech, clean sportsmanship, clean scholarship, clean living.” The officers of the Senior Tri-Hi-Y meet to discuss the YMCA Tri-Hi-Y emblem. 131 I Key Club Emphasizes Outstanding Citizenship Sponsored by the Kiwanis International, the Key Club is composed of boys possessing outstanding character, high ideals, and superior scholastic averages. The Key Club prepares its members to be useful citizens of the modern world by instilling qualities of initiative and leadership. The Key Club members took part in many activities. Peanut brittle, Christmas wrapping paper, and COLT pillows were all sold this year. The members also participated in basketball games with area Key Clubs and other organizations. The highlight of the year was the annual Key Club convention held in Richmond, Virginia, which was attended by several club members. Robert McDowell reads the minutes of a Key Club meeting to the other officers: Richard Van Lear, BiU Siple, Greg Anderson, and Bruce Swartz. Key Club members are; Front row; G.

In order to give interested students a well-rounded knowl- edge of Art, each individual who has taken a course in art is encouraged to become a member of the Art Club. Through lectures and demonstrations, much is learned about different types of painting and various artistic works. The Art Club once again aided the choir classes by pre- paring backdrops and scenery for the presentation of “The Sound of Music.” The realism in which the various scenes were portrayed displayed the fine well-rounded knowledge of art students. The reoccurrence of the Art exhibit held after the Bacca- laureate services proved again to be a success. Various and interesting forms of Art created by the students themselves were displayed at the event. Through the study of old and the examining of new artistic ideas, the ACHS Art Club hopes to cultivate the creative talents of its members. Members of the Art Club include: seated: R. Jordan, B. Johnson, P. Quarles, K. Sampson, E. Johnson, E. Johnson. Standing: A. Gladwell, J. Martin, S. Schell, D. Fridley, J. Byer, L. Thrasher, G. Byer, L. Jones, J. Sizer, R. Chambers, C. Broughman, G.

Linda Lemon, Debbie Lockard, and Susan Persinger work on captions for the features section. Sylvia Craghead, Leigh Thrasher, and Mike Logan stage a picture for the organizations section. Jackie Nicely, Camilla Bennett, and Bert Knighton type the final carbon for a page in the faculty section. Jean Shawver, Roberta Linkswiler, and Peggy Hylton check the balance on a double page for the sports section. Sherry Smith, Linda Kilian, and Sandy Craft crop a picture for their classes section. 134 Result In Distinctively Different ALCOVA Mike Logan sells an ALCOVA to Lucille Garrett during a subscription campaign. Bruce Swartz confronts Leigh Thrasher with her errors while Mike Logan and Sylvia Craghead muse over their work. “We’re out of dummy sheets! You’re kidding! Do you like these captions? How many spaces for the heading? The deadline is tomorrow?! Oh, no!” These seemingly nonsensical questions and statements may be heard any day during the 7th period while the annual staff is at work. Though, to most people these statements would seem vague and useless, each sentence refers to a different phase of the many hours of work put into the production of each edition of the ALCOVA. Under the guidance of Mrs. Joyce Barber and Mrs. Jean Whiteside, the group as a whole made decisions concerning the yearbook theme, design, and dedicatee. After making these decisions, the staff was then divided into five groups of three people, each group to work on its own section. This year with Bill Humbert as Editor, and Bruce Swartz as business manager, the ALCOVA staff was able to create a superb book at minimum costs. In this its sixth year, the ALCOVA has indeed become a book of which the students of Alleghany may indeed be proud. ALCOVA Staff members S. Craghead, S. Craft, L. Kilian, B. Swartz, C. Bennett, B.

M jH i. L i Dickie Tigrett, Sue Redman, and Ardeth Gladwell prepare a page of the Sue Redman, editor, and Mrs. Clinedinst, advisor, make last minute PATRIOT as Jan Shawver completes the typing of an article. corrections before publication of the PATRIOT. 136 Efficiency Of Patriot Staff Members The task of keeping the students of ACHS well informed of the news around the school is indeed a great one. Under the supervision of Mrs. Betty Clinedinst, the members of the PATRIOT staff took this task ably into stride. PATRIOT staff members worked hard to uncover news of organizations and their activities, of sports and extra- curricular activities, and of the students themselves. The PATRIOT is printed once monthly with special editions at holiday times. The final issue of each year is dedicated entirely to the graduating Senior class. HOOFPRINTS, the literary magazine of ACHS con- taining literature by the students themselves, was again published by the PATRIOT staff. Much hard work must go into the publishing of a school newspaper, but the result of this work may be easily seen in the PATRIOT’S immense popularity. S. Redman distributes copies of the PATRIOT for sale to A. Gladwell, K. Arrington, J. Shawver, J. Sizer, D. Fridley, A. Garrett, H. Bradley, D. Tigrett, and J.

It involves long hard practicing, skill, and a great deal of determination. The Varsity Club of Alleghany is the one Club set aside in honor of the boys who have met these requirements to receive a school letter and have played a varsity sport. An honored event for all the Varsity Club members is the annual athletic banquet. At this banquet members of the club who have excelled in some vital role in a sport are honored and given trophies. It is at this banquet that the new members of the club are recognized. This year the Varsity Club held its annual picnic at Douthat State Park. Activities at the picnic consisted of horse-back riding, boating, fishing and a wild football game on the beach. The picnic was a tremendous success and was enjoyed by everyone who attended.

VanBuren, concentrate on the chess games. Mr. Williams points out an answer to a humorous question asked by Emma Hoke. Anyone for a game of chess? This question has been commonly heard around AHS. The members of the Chess Club busied themselves this year with learning more about their game and better methods of playing. This club is provided for the students who enjoy stimulating the mind. The members realize that the game involves a great deal of time and concentration. In order to play Chess properly you have to watch your opponent, keep an eye on your men and at the same time cunningly plan a check-mate. The study hall teachers also bene- fited from the club because it was fre- quent that the Chess Club members challenged one another in nice quiet matches. The AHS Chess Club offers its membership to those students who enjoy occupying their time in relaxing but thought provoking entertainment. 139 Alleghany County Front row: S. Smith, D. Via, V.

The choir classes practiced many long hours on lines, songs, and characterization in order to present the world famous musical, “The Sound of Music.” It was truly a great success and touched the hearts of everyone who attended the performances. For the first time in the choir’s existence at A.C.H.S., it hosted a Choral Festival. At this festival, schools from the surrounding districts came to be rated in their quality. Schools were able to apply in three categories; solos, small ensembles and large choral groups. The Festival proved to be a great success with over 1 200 students attending. Even though the choir had many events on their schedule, they still found time to present their annual Christmas Concert to the student body. The music was indeed beautiful and left everyone with the spirit of Christmas. Choir director T.F.D. Farrar assures himself that choir accompanist Chris Shortridge will keep a steady rhythm. 141 Alleghany Band Comes Of Age The brass section including A. Snead, A. Lawler, S. Wright, G. Bostic, R. Mills, B. Downey, Steve Young and Mr. Baber discuss the correct R. Persinger, P. Craft, R. Fridley and B. Smith practice a difficult selection for the spring technique for playing the kettle drum. concert. A student whose talent lies in the area of playing a musical instrument may find a great opportunity to improve his ability by joining the AHS band. Under the training of Mr. Leonard Baber, the director, the band has shown much improvement during its existence. This year the band performed in both school and commun- ity functions. The band’s presence at pep rallies tremendously boosted the enthusiasm of the student body. The marching presenta- tions during half-times were enjoyed by those who attended each football game. The patriotic songs sounded in the Labor Day Parade, and the gay, spirited tunes played in the Christmas Parade added much to each event. Later in the year, the freshness of the season could be imagined by listening to the lovely selections chosen for the annual spring concert. The various activities, and the enjoyment derived from being a member of the AHS band are well worth the long, tiring hours of practice. Members of the band are M. Bennett, M. Boggs, G. Bostic, J. Brackman, B. Bradshaw, D. Broce, D. Bruffy, J. Bush, R. Clark, C. Craft, J. Curtis, D. Davis, B. Deacon, R. Fridley, R. George, E. Hoke, J. Jones, K. Kelly, J. Knighton, A. Lawler, J. Lemon, J.

Admiration was seen in the eyes of AHS spectators who watched the delightful performances of the eight talented majorettes. Stepping high and gracefully, the majorettes began their year by adding dazzling smiles to the patriotic music sounded by the band during the Labor Day Parade. Later in the year, dressed in informal uniforms of red and blue accented by swinging white pleated skirts, the baton twirlers added vim and vigor to pep rallies through lively routines. Football games were also enlivened by the majorettes’ participation in the half-time festivities. Leading the band again, the majorettes revealed their joyous spirits of the season while marching to the gay music of the Christmas Parade. Everyone must agree that the majorettes fulfull their parts in making AHS a well-rounded school. Majorettes N. Vest, L. Riley, B. Simpson, D. Linkswiler, R. Owens, S. Hopkins, D. Reed, and C. McKeague pause before beginning another afternoon practice. 143 Pep Club Instills Spirit Into Student Body Front row: S. Lockhard, L. Thrasher, S. Showalter, T. Dickson, S.

The officers of the Pep Club realize that unend- ing enthusiasm plays an important role in the Pep Club. “We’re from Alleghany, couldn’t be prouder!” These words have a familiar ring in the chant of the Pep Club of Alleghany County High School. In its second year of existence the Pep Club has done a great deal to improve the spirit of A.C.H.S. With an apparell consisting of cheerful red sweaters and brightly colored badges, the Pep Club members displayed enthusiasm which was transmitted throughout the entire student body. In order to stimulate even more school spirit the Pep Club held weekly parties where many varied types of posters were created by the members. These posters proved to be very effective in adding to school and team spirit. This year, the Pep Club gave awards to the four students whom the club considered most school spirited. At the annual athletic awards assembly Sally Showalter, Chris Pierannunzi, Martha Stephenson and Tracie Dickson received these awards. Leigh Thrasher and Rob Loving portray a skit where the mighty Colts defeat the Indians. 144 Forensics Meet At Radford Is Successful Mrs. Clinedinst assists Chris Pierannunzi in selecting poetry for an oral reading. This year another new organization, the Forensics Club, took its place among the clubs at AHS. This organization was arranged for students with an interest in the literary field. The Forensics Club is made up of several divisions including public speaking, poetry reading, prose reading, verse reading and spelling. Members are placed into these divisions according to their abilities and interests. Chris Pierannunzi as president, Mrs. Clindinst, the sponsor, and all the officers showed their capability as leaders in that the club was securely established. Several of the members participated in a Forensics meet at Radford College. Among those who placed in the various divisions were Chris Pieran- nunzi, Brenda Hyler, Kyle Jones, Sue Redman and Anita Quinlin. Alleghany County High School can be proud that the Forensics Club will be an asset to t he school for many years. First row; P. Warner, C. Pierannunzi, B. Hyler, B. Craft, P. Terry, D. Noel, J.

Members Keep Virginia Green The members of the KVG’s at Alleghany County High School are noted for performing an outstanding community service e very day of the year. The Keep Virginia Green boys do just as their name implies. These young men strive to prevent forest fires in Virginia; however, if a fire does break out, they are ready to fight. The KVG’s have saved valuable timberland, the homes of wildlife, and often man himself. Every fail new members of the KVG’s take a day of school to study with Forest Service Officials to gain valuable knowledge of fire-fighting techniques. These boys carry on an active campaign against fire not only while at Alleghany County High School, but they will utilize their fire-fighting techniques after graduation as grown men in the community. The members of the KVG’s maintain the well-earned respect of the community by their hard work and devotedness to their fight against fire. Members of the KVG obtain knowledge and skill in fire-fighting during a practice session in an area near the school. Front row: E. Watson, C. E. Andrews, J. Williams, T. Heironimus, R. Wilhs, G.

Mr. Osbourne, head custodian, goes about his tasks of generally improving the school’s appearance with the art of a truly skilled handyman. Mrs. Kitt does a superb job in keeping cleanliness an appreciated asset to high school life. The efficiency of the cafeteria staff is gratefully recognized by every student who eats in the cafeteria. The nutritious meals prepared by these faithful ladies provide the students with the physical strength needed to complete their day with mental alertness. Keeping the temperature moderate is one of Mrs. Kitt looks up to give a friendly Mr. Osbourne’s many duties at A.C.H.S. smile as she completes her daily tasks. The ladies of the kitchen staff apportion the food in the cafeteria to provide satisfying meals for the waiting students. 147 STUDENTS 148 Progress In Academic And Social Life 149 Entering Alleghany, Eighth Graders Eind High Faced with a new and entirely different situation, the eighth graders found Allegliany quite a challenge. Halls here and rooms there were the only things most eighth-graders noticed for the first bewildering weeks. After finally adjusting to their new environment, the eiglith graders looked around and began to realize the opportunities afforded them. Although membership to many organizations was closed to eiglith graders, some clubs benefitted immensely from underclass participation. This participation, in turn, provided the eiglith graders with new experiences needed for the years ahead. In sports, the class of ’73 performed well, with new and promising athletes displaying their abilities. Most of the eighth graders showed an abundance of spirit and pep. Besides having their own cheerleading squad, many of them joined the Pep Club and faithfully supported their teams. And so, looking back on their first year at ACHS, most of the once-friglitened eighth graders can even smile at their mis- takes as they look forward to their four years ahead.

They joined clubs, participated in sports, and elected their first class officers. What freshmen may have lacked in actual comprehension of factual matter, they made up for with sagacity and willingness, and they were constantly gaining proficiency in educational endeavor. Ninth grade boys contributed their skills to the Junior Varsity football and basketball teams, while the freshmen girls took part in cheerleading and basketball. Freshmen were delighted with their many new activities; however, they especially en- joyed sitting down during pep rallies and attending their first formal dance. Throughout the year, the freshmen made a place for themselves at ACHS as they anticipated their coming sophomore year. Pam Hughes, president of the freshman class, outlines the year’s plans with fellow officers, Linda Kesterson, treasurer; Gloria Loan, secretary; and Jim Landis, vice president. 156 Ninth Graders Elect Capable Class Officers Linda Mae Aldredge Bobby Wayne Angle Dennis Leslie Armentiout Vickie Renee Armentrout Effie Elizabeth Armstrong Donna Sue Ayers Karen Suzanne Averill Cennie Sue Barrington Robin Marie Bartley Andrea Kathleen Basham Phyllis June Bates Edward Erwin Bennett Ronnie Lynn Bennett Virginia Dale Bess Donna Kay Black David Allen Boone Beverly Ann Bowyer Barbara Ann Brackenridge James Gordon Brackman Donna Jean Brown Basil Eugene Bryant Deborah Lynn Burch Louis Edward Burns Janet Lee Burrows Albert Dennis Bush Joyce Marie Bush Carolyn Elizabeth Buzzard Bonnie Sue Byer David Lowry Byer Debra Melisa Marie Byer Homer Clemmer Byer Ellen Irene Campbell Gary Osburn Campbell Bryan Oswald Carrol Michael Leo Carter David Eugene Charles Darlene Mae Clark Linda Sue Clark Robert Lee Clark George Edward Clemons Bobby Eugene Cline William Andrew Conner Jerry Reid Curtis Claude William Deacon, Jr. Linda Jean DePriest Judy Ernestine Dodd Becky Sue Downey Randolph Wayne Downey 157 Opportunity To Study Foreign Language, Gilmer Hill Dressier Sherry May Dressier Julian Robert Entsminger Gary Alvin I’isher Michael Eugene Fisher Sue Carol Fisher Kevan Jeter Fitzgerald Sharon Ann Franson Roy I ' razier Fix Barry Rexal Fridley Sandra Fee Fridley Martha Alice Frye Earl Foster FuUer Jackie Edwin Gaines Fucille Ethel Garrett Susan Gail Goode Evelyn Doris Graham Daryl William Greene Allen Fee Griffin Judy Gail Griffith Gary Douglas Gum James Madison Hall Gary Fee Hankins James Harold Hannah Ada Elizabeth Harless Richard Lee Helmintoller Linda Marie Hepler Kay Lynn Harrelson Nancy Leigh Harrison William Eugene Haskins Ronald Keith Hawse Kathleen Laverne Haynes Barbara Lynn Hicks Kathy Darlene Hicks Keith Eugene Hicks Glenn Lewis Higgins Joyce Carol Hinkle Edith Lee Hoke Eunice Loree Hoke Gary Thomas Hoke George Michael Howard Pamela Marie Hughes Marvin Vernon Humphries Teddy Arthur Humphries Ronnie Wesley Hunt Evonne Jeanett Irvine Judy Ann Irvine Brenda Athea Johnson 158 Home Economics, Shop, Intrigues Freshmen m Michael Cleo Jones James Murrell Jones John Paul Jones Wanda Irene Kellison Marie Antionette Jordan Kay Ellen Kelley Kenneth Matthew Kern Linda Elaine Kesterson Coyd William Kimberlin James Walter Knighton Vicki Lynn Knighton Randall Brian Kranz James Kevin Landis Jeffrey Zane Lemon Brenda Faye Linkswiler Debra Delores Linkswiler Linda Gaye Linkswiler Michael Alvin Linkswiler David Lee Livesay Gloria Jean Loan Lawrence Wayne Lomasney Pamela Lynn Long Sandra Lee Loving Linda Gail Lugar Larry Scott Maddy Charles Joseph Marple Robert Wayne Marple Steven Verell Marshall Web Kelley Martin James Garland Maupin Roger Lee May Milton Collier Mays Thomas Baynes McCaleb Carol Ann Meadows Rhonda Lee Meadows Shanon Lee Michie Carl Richard Montgomery Roscoe Marion Montgomery Dorothy Louise Morgan Deborah Ann Morris James Calvin Morris Marchita Layne Nelson Betty Juanita Nicely Chazy Jonathan Nicely Dennis Wayne Nicely Jane Effie Nicely Janice Eva Nicely John Franklin Nicely 159 A ttending Christmas Formal, Serving For Jr. - During FHA initiation week, Brenda Ailstock, president, reminds Joyce Bush, Kathleen Haynes, Kathy Hicks, Lucille Garrett, and Gail Goode of their duties as new club members.

This class experienced a new and unique year filled with anticipation, joy, sorrow, and indecision. With the spirit of loyalty to their school as an incentive for achievement, sophomores proved to be a reliable and vital part of the life stream of Alleglrany. Struggling with such obstacles as bisected lines and dissected frogs, perplexed sophomores learned to plan for future goals througli study. Accepting the responsibility of hard mental work, students, from the most accomplished scholar to the most courageous athlete, worked hard to attain a common goal. Thus, the word sophomore, meaning “wise fool,” was contradicted by the sophomore class of this year with its talented and unending record. Sophomore officers Mary Beth Bodell, treasurer; Chuck Anthony, vice-president; John Thomas McCaleb, president; and Sally Showalter, secretary keep a record of class dues which will enable them to finance a Junior-Senior Prom. 162 Perplexing Times Of Sorrow, Joy, Indecision David Charles Aman Joyce Marie Anderson Charles Douglas Anthony Joseph Michael Arrington Henry Gilbert Baker Dianna Susan Barger Elizabeth Dodson Barineau Karen Elizabeth Bennett Mark Emerson Bennett Norma Lea Bess Darlene Elizabeth Biggs Danny Ray Black Pamela Ellen Black Jean Carol Bocook Mary Elizabeth Bodell Gary Wayne Boemer Nancy Lynn Boerner James Matthew Bolden Bonnie Jean Boone Marsha Suzette Bosserman Gordon Ettly Bostic Wanda Jane Bowers Daniel Ross Bratton Douglas Alan Broce Walter James Broughman Dixie Lynn Bruffey Stuart Smith Brugh David Preston Byer James William Byer David Glen Byerly Richard Daryl Byers Lana Karen Caldwell Mary Sue Caldwell Donna Marie Carroll Michael Leroy Carson Robert Polk Chambers Rita Kaye Clark Janice Evelyn Cleckler Delmas Keith Conner Norman Eugene Craft Paula Gay Craft Susan Kay Craft 163 Challenge Lively Sophomores To Buckle Down Tommy Lewis Craft Philip Andrew Curtis Brenda Lynn DePriest Wesley Allen Dew Ricky William Dillard Debra Lynn Dodd Donna Leigh Dodd Celia Lorraine Donovan Julia Ann Downey William Doyle Downey William MacKenson Dressier, Jr. David Stafford Dulaney William Rush Duncan Julia Anne Farrar William Batten Farrar Debra Kay Fore Robert Lee Fridley William Oliver Fridley Gary Roscoe Garrett Richard Paul George Terrie Lynn Gumm Gary Dell Hall Julia Rose Hammand Jess Jonathan Hand Nancy Mae Helmintoller Deborah Stewart Henson Karen Sue Hepler Linda Susan Hicks Beulah Marie Higgins Linda Kay Hinkle Barbara Sue Humphries Carol Louise Humphries Brenda Victoria Hyler Darius Leroy Hylton Clyde Davis Jarvis Elizabeth Diane Johnson Houston Lynn Johnson, Jr. Linda Gail Johnson Mary Melissa Johnson Sheldon Bruce Johnson Kyle Irving Jones Mark Warren Jones 164 In Studies And Extracurricular Activities Deloris Ophelia Jordan Ronald Tronto Jordan Sharon Frances Kanney Beverley Faye Keaton David Ray Keaton Jane Faye Kern Gary Howard Kilian Patti Page Kitt Rolando Brackmann Kopak Clyde Howard Landis Baxter Alexander Leech Deborah Sue Lefler Earl Monroe Lemon, Jr. Jack Orville Lienhardt, Jr. Carol Elizabeth Lindsay Jerry Wayne Lindsay Robert Clingan Littleton Cynthia Lou Lockard Charles Timothy Loving Robert Marshall Loving, HI Robert Dale Lugar Elinor Jean Martin James Talmadge Mays, Jr. John Thomas McCaleb Mary Christina McComb Elta Marie McCray Francis Joe McCray, Jr. Rita Gail McGaha Brenda Sue Mclsaac Robert Oscar MiUs, Jr. 165 Completing Third Year Of High School, Emmett Wayne Montgomery Lola Mae Montgomery Martha Sue Morris Patricia Pearl Morris Jane Lee Myers Samuel Wayne Mynes Adali Griffith Nicely Charles Edward Nicely Lucy Viola Nicely Randolph Lee Nicely Rebecca Susan Nicely Sandra Lee Nicely Steven Norman Nicely William Lloyd Nicely Daphne Denise Noel Ruben Edward Noel Debbie Lee Offenbacker WiUiam Buddy Overton Kenneth Brian Oyler Donalie Faye Paitsel Roy David Patterson Barbara Ellen Pearson Linda Carine Perkins Charles Watson Persinger, Jr. Larry Adams Persinger Robert Terry Platt, Jr. Ronald Steven Plott Patricia Ann Plymale Robert Avon Ray Beverly Ann Reed Anne Tyler Reyns Sharon Kaye Richmond Linda Leigh Riley Angela Gail Roberts Clyde Jackson Rose LuciUe Jean Rose Nancy Jane Ross Jackie Lynne Ruble Steven Anthony Sales Elizabeth Ann Sartain Rebecca Ann Schooler Elizabeth Sue Scott 166 Sophomores Fulfill Expectations By Showing Jeffrey Alan Scott Franklin Melvin Sellers John Raleigh Senter Patricia Ann Shifflett Sally Brown Showalter Steven Eric Showalter Jonathan Lee Simmons Judith Ann Simpson Samuel Gene Sizemore Barbara Sue Slayton David Matthew Smith Edward Murry Smith Johnnie Wentworth Snead Kathy Leigh Southers Charles Christopher Spraggins Charles Wade Stayton Joy Lynne St. Clair Allen Wayne Steele Robin Gayle Stinette Maude Rae Swartz Richard Lee Taliaferro Debra Ann Taylor Patsy Ann Terry James Edward Thrasher, Jr. Burwin Edward Tucker, Jr. Jo Ann Tucker Lula Ann Tucker Steven Wayne Tucker Melody Anne Unroe John William Vest Debra Lee Via Gary Wayne Waddell Leo Conrad Walton Pamela Rogers Warner Michael Berkley Warwick Franklin Neil Watson Robert Wayne Watts Vicky Lou Watts Donna Catherine Wickline Donna Maureen WiUcerson Susan Lynn WOkerson Beverly Jean Williams 167 Real Ambition, Dedication To Alleghany Billy Lawson WiUiams Mary Ann Williams Vivian Ester Winston Gary Wayne Wolfe Nancy Jean Wolfe Jeanne Elaine Worley Philip William Nikkei September 12, 1953 - November 2, 1968 The student body, faculty, and administration of Alleghany take this opportunity to pay their humble respects to their friend and student, Philip William Nikkei. The shock of his untimely death on November 2, 1968, was softened by the realization that his life, although short, was one of fulfillment. Phil’s teachers knew him as a good student; to his peers, Phil was a shy, quiet, easygoing associate. The sophomore class, along with the entire student body, will long remember Phil’s good nature and quiet smile. 168 Class Officers Serve Eleventh-Graders Well Junior class officers: Sherry Smith, president; Mark Smith, vice-president; Chris Pierannunzi, secretary; and Linda Loan, treasurer, examine newly-arrived Prom materials. Allegltany’s class of 1970 faced their ju- nior year of hard work and activity with anxiety and determination. The history and literature of America, along with chemistry, presented a persisting challenge to most ju- niors. Academic advancement was especially emphasized as preparation for the senior year. The boys of this class were the initiators of the eighth grade football team. Since that time, juniors have capably filled the ranks of Alleglrany’s sports program. From the beginning of the year to the end, every event was centered around the Prom. Despite the considerable burden of studies, the energetic juniors devoted count- less hours to this, their greatest task. The class worked diligently to provide the ample funds which made the Prom a great success. During the basketball games, wres- tling matches, and the District O Tourna- ments, the concession stands were faithfully operated by some enthusiastic juniors. “Bachelor of the Year,” the Junior Class Play, provided entertainment for the audi- ence while it aided the class financially. Class dues, as well, contributed to the treasury. The junior year swelled with activity and excitement. Each member of the class of 1970 gained during his fourth year at ACHS in friendship, school spirit, leadership, and knowledge.

The burden of studying and the job of preparing for the future kept Allegliany’s oldest class on its toes for the first semester and a half of school. However, the last ten weeks brouglit with them a growing sense of excitement and anticipation. The seniors, under the direction of Mr. Duff, presented a comedy-mystery play to the school and to the public. The proceeds from this theatrical endeavor went to pay for the class gift to the school and the banquet. A board of trustees, composed of two representatives from each senior home- room, was selected to help the class officers choose an appropriate gift to leave to the school. It was finally decided to purchase some much-needed visual aid equipment, which was presented to Mr. Cvizic at the senior banquet. Here, many class members enjoyed a buffet dinner and dancing at a local supper club. Senior privileges provided an opportunity for the students to relax before exams and to cement friendships made at Allengliany. The seniors of 1969 transformed their dreams of a play, banquet, and graduation into realities and showed that they had indeed been inspired by their class motto: “Together as one, we strive for success.” Above: One of Bruce Swartz’s many duties as senior class president is checking final details of class plans with Mr. Cvizic. Left: As secretary, Phyllis Boone finds herself constantly working on correspondence for the class. Bottom Left: Along with his job of vice-president, Ron Shires takes on the responsibility of being the assistant stage manager. Below: Having been chosen Homecoming Queen of 1969, Peggy Hylton abandons the chores of class treasurer to be congratulated by her fellow cheerleaders, Brenda Hayslett, Helen Bradley, Jean Shawver, Sherry Smith, Cindy Lowen, and Linda Loan. 176 As They Discover ‘ ' The Impossible Dream” Gregory Alan Anderson Karen Sue Arrington Ronald Wayne Arrington Joyce Marie Arritt Jane Lynd Barker Camilla Sarah Bennett Warren Hayes Bennett Janice Day Bethel Rebecca Susan Black Alice Faye Bocook Phyllis Marie Boone Preston Lee Boone Minitree Emmanuel Bowles Donna Jean Bradley John Carson Bradley 177 Seniors Continue To Lend Support To The Rose Lynne Branham Linda Carol Brough man Carolyn Blanche Byer Elizabeth Ellen Caldwell Carolyn Conner Cary Kitty Joyce Charles Donna Jean Clark Bobbie Randolph Clarke Donald Lee Cody Sandra Dale Craft Sylvia Jane Craghead Catherine Joy Cummings Dawn Jeneal Curtis Carl Custer Myra Olivia Davis 178 Honors, Traditions, And Spirit Of A C H S Leslie Blair Dodd Michael Steven Dotson Elizabeth Louis Downey Carl Warren Dressier Paula Paige Dressier Penny Kellison Dressier Philip Lee Eaton Gregory Wayne Evans David Ray Fitzgerald Judith Michalene Fleshman Joseph Robert Fourqurean Deborah Kay Fridley Evelyn Mae Fridley Linda Kay Fury Sandra Gail Garber 179 Senior Dramatists And Class Members Present Alice Mitchell Garrett Nancy Schooler Garrett Aloys Lambert Gier William Young GillUand Wayne Edward Glover Joseph Elmer Hammond In the Senior class play, “Stranger In The Night,” Sylvia Lee and Mabel Crane haul Freddie Beech off the hotel gift shop floor after he was mowed down by the hotel gym instructor. 180 Comedy-Mystery Play “Stranger In The Night Vernon Wayne Harris Charles Preston Hawse Brenda Joyce Hayslett Tex Rogers Hazelwood Phyllis Eleanor Hepler Gerald Lee Hevener Emma Louise Hoke Sharon Ann Hopkins Barbara Ann Howard Brenda Jean Hughes William Herman Humbert Kathy Ann Humphries Peggy Ann Hylton Charles Leon Jamison Irma Mae Johnson 181 Humbert, Redman Honored As The Two Top Leonard William Jones Sue Lanette Kellison Sharon O’Dell Kersey Paul Steven Kesterson Linda Sue Kilian Sandra Kay Kirby Winona Ann Kirby Lana Rose Knick Rosezetta Fay Knick Albert Lewis Knighton, Jr. Teresa Lee Landis Linda Alice Lawhorn Anna Leigh Lawler Linda Lynn Lemon Roberta Sue Linkswiler 182 Seni ors In Their Class of 157 Graduates Deborah Scott Lockard Michael William Logan William Ollie Lowry Charles Lee Masters Michael Wayne McCauley Basil Leroy McDaniel James Gordon McGaha Virginia Marie Meadows Lynn Marshall Miller Karen Sue Montgomery Gary Alvem Morris Barbara Ruth Mottern Martha Ann Myers Carl Bruce Nelson Bruce Edward Neville 183 Prom, Banquet Furnish Time For Last Fond Valerie Suzanne Newman Shirley Juanita Nicely Steven Thomas Nicely Marcus Neil O’Conner Edward Merdith Oyler, Jr. Robert Allen Pedigo Edward Allen Persinger Jack Nelson Persinger Susan Jane Persinger Clay Wesley Puffenbarger Constance Sue Redman James Thomas Reynolds Linda Carol Reynolds Brenda Sue Robinson Douglas Conner Rogers 184 Memories Of Fun-Filled High School Days Greg Carter, Myra Davis, Alice Meadows, Linda Turner, Carl Custer, Donna Bradley, Mar- cus O’Conner, and Barbara Howard study samples of senior keys before placing their orders.

Stephen Wayne 58.59,,175 EPILOGUE In an age of journeys to the moon and ever - increasing civil disorders, the individual is left to himself to aim his own footsteps on the path into the future. As a child he must choose between selfishness and giving, and he learns the meaning of love and hate. When the individual enters high school, his life as a child comes quickly to an end and he must look ahead as a young adult. His principles and morals solidify and thus shape his life. High school brings about the meeting of new friends and the leaving of old ones. The individual’s ideas are sometimes challenged, but when they are, he listens to the opposition with an open mind so that he might more intelligently determine his own beliefs. Time brings change - and change breeds rebellion. In only five years mini-skirts have replaced below the knee dresses, long hair is predominant over short, and the “generation gap” often seems as vast as the universe itself. Yet, deep inside the individual, pride, understanding, and sensibility are found and are often practiced. However, in a crowd, these qualities are pushed aside and remain shrouded in the fight against “the establishment.” Thus the crucial turn in life arrives in youth. Through learning, the individual breaks away from conformity and begins the search for reality so that he can be better prepared to face life. Still, though man cannot live alone, neither can he survive on the ideas of the multitudes. Thus the struggle to reach maturity must be evident in day to day life - for the child, for the student, and for the adult. 232
