ALLEGHANY COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL Route 2 , Valley Ridge Covington, Virginia Volume VII A L C 0 V A 70 TIME Jonathan Williams, Barbara Dodd, Fred- die Baker and Linda Tolley wait impa- tiently to leave class three minutes be- fore the bell rings so as to exercise one of the long awaited Senior privileges. During the " Age of Aquarius, " hemlines seem to rise almost as quickly as time passes. 2 The Mercurial Dimension As the new replaces the old, the outgoing SCA officers relinquish their duties to the newly-elected officers. In a time of personal freedom, many students assert their individualism through daily attire. Miss Elizabeth Smith, teaching for her last year at ACHS, advises Mrs. Anne Time ran out for the Colts at this particular basketball game. Bradley, one of Alleghany ' s youngest teachers, in the way of school life. 3 Changing Seasons Herald Fresh Wisdom As Striving for better understanding, black and white students discuss a wide range of topics. Basketball becomes the most popular indoor sport during the harsh winter months. Study hall provides a time of concentration for Gary Hoke and Randy Downey. Mysteries of the biology laboratory unfold for sophomores Bonnie 3yer, Dale Bess, and Allen Griffin. 4 Shy Eighth Graders Evolve Into Glib Seniors Eighth graders always try to adjust and be alert in unfamiliar surround- ings. Standing respectfully, each member of the student body imagines the day when he will be a senior. David Wallis realizes that graduation is nearing as Tim Heironi- mus aids him by adjusting his mortarboard. , t : 4 In contrast to the absorbed interest of eighth graders, the seniors appear blase during an assembly. 5 Seniors feel that they have reached a landmark as they receive their senior keys. Footsteps On The Moon Outdate Textbooks Terry Platt, Lydia Smith, and Dianne Tingler take a few minutes to check on the progress of APOLLO 13. Student teacher, Kyle Jones, uses an article from TIME magazine to illustrate the chemical properties of moon rocks. Mr. Carpenter makes it a practice to use varied tech- niques of teaching. 6 While Treasured Goals Become Memories Mr. Cvizic expresses obvious pride in receiving the Blue Ridge Baseball Trophy on behalf of the students. Miss Wolfe receives the school ' s highest honor embodied in the ALCOVA dedication. Karolyn ' s goal is reached as her high school career becomes a memory. (If Uir -U ' lT.I ... .. . . . S ntyMuu ' ■yi ' au., ■• ' rrul Miss Wolfe Narrows Generation Gap With Her Patience Miss Wolfe, salvaging a few minutes from the many routine duties of her domain, concentrates on untangling a tie-up in the magazine sales campaign. Training capable and efficient assistant librarians consumes much of Miss Wolfe ' s time. 8 Meeting with chairman Rob Littleton and secretary Pam Hughes, Miss Wolfe, as faculty advisor helps plan procedures and policies for the newly initiated honor system. Always available for consultation. Miss Wolfe assists Freddie Baker in conducting research for a term project. As any ACHS student knows, she is a ready target for a wide range of questions. As the door opens, students begin scrambling to find seats. There is a buzzing noise all through the room. Then, as abruptly as it started, the noise subsides into total silence. “Shh! Shh! The library is a place to study, not to talk. " Rendering this traditional statement with a smile. Miss Mary Helen Wolfe retires to her office. Having a year round job. Miss Wolfe spends each summer updating the card catalogue, record- ing new books, and determining which new books should be restricted to the mysterious " back room. " Maintaining a library of over ten-thousand volumes is an arduous task. (But Miss Wolfe some- times finds that keeping the same library quiet enough for study is even greater undertaking!) Upon occasion Miss Wolfe has been humorously referred to as " a walking encyclopedia, " as she amazes faculty and students alike with, " You will find information on that subject in the fourth sec- tion from this end, third shelf from the top . . . " Giving up much free time each fall. Miss Wolfe spearheads the magazine sales campaign. She sees that everything is running smoothly and if one ' s school mascot has an eye missing, or if the clock one ordered does not work. Miss Wolfe patiently listens to the complaints and helps solve the prob- lem. Ordering the wide variety of audio-visual aids used in many classes and keeping track of all these materials are dual responsibilities which Miss Wolfe assumes with ease. However, she has been known to utter such indigent exclamations as " Oh dear, " or " Not again! " when a projector is missing and has not been signed out. Miss Wolfe ' s unassuming disposition often pre- vents public knowledge of the many ways she con- tributes to ACHS. Each fall she assists in execut- ing the standardized tests required by the state; she has helped to choose forensics participants and to select students for roles in various school plays; she has supervised ticket sales for numerous dra- matic productions here at school. In addition to her long-standing duties. Miss Wolfe has agreed to be the faculty advisor for the newly formed Honor Council. Because she so truly lives and works by Alleghany ' s school motto, " Knowledge-Today ' s torch for a better tomorrow, " the student body, represented by this annual staff, with appreciation and gratitude dedicates the 1970 ALCOVA to Miss Mary Helen Wolfe. 9 Efficient Superintendent Retires Prominent leaders in the field of education compose the School Board of Alleghany County. This governing body determines the annual school budget and regulates the im- provements to be made in each of the county schools. Supervisor C.M. Smith, acting as mediator, takes to the School Board for its approval all issues presented to him by the county school administrations. These persons have worked together, devoting much time and energy to insure the ef- ficient and uniform management of the county school system. After serving in Alleghany County public schools for 42 years as both teacher and principal and ably serving as Superintendent of county schools for twelve years, Mr. Walter Hodnett concludes his formal career as a public educator. Students, parents, and the public of Alleghany County owe much thanks to this dedicated man who has done much to improve the conditions of area schools. It will indeed be a difficult task to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Mr. Hodnett. Walter L. Hodnett, Superintendent C. M. Smith, Jr. Supervisor At a regular School Board meeting, Mr. Frank Hammond, Mr. Bishop Pentz, Mrs. James Ginn, Mr. Delbert Hepler, Superintendent Walter L. Hodnett, Mrs. James Snyder, and Mr. Robert Burrows discuss future plans for Alleghany County public schools. 12 ACHS " Establishment " Headed By Mr. Cvizic Mr. Cvizic groups the K.V.G. boys for their quick transport to help fight a forest fire. Dusan Cvizic Mr. Cvizic makes several an- nouncements before an as- sembly. Mr. Cvizic proudly accepts from Butch Simpson the Blue Ridge District Checking to see that all is well, Mr. Cvizic scans one of many Championship trophy won by Alleghany ' s baseball team. office reports. Mr. Cvizic is undoubtedly the busiest man at Alleghany. Nearly any time during the day, one may stroll through the office and find a line of students or businessmen waiting at this principal ' s door. Through exercising his firm authority, Mr. Cvizic daily works to make A.C.H.S. a place which students proudly and respectfully call their own. 13 Assistant Principal — Scholar And Clown A sly smile steals over the face of Mr. Walker as he humors the student body before one of the as- semblies. Mr. Walker scratches his head thoughtfully as he ponders the problem at hand. Charles “Ferdinand " Walker is a man of numerous talents. As assistant principal, he is responsible for many administrative duties. He also instructs a most intriguing trig class, mystifying his pupils with his supreme mathematical knowledge. Mr. Walker ' s fre- quent attempts to humor his students always end in embarrassment for his victims. Mr. Walker ' s responsibilities do not end with his academic tasks. In addition, he is involved in many extracurricular activities. He serves as sponsor for the varsity club and he is head coach of the Colt Varsity Basketball team. Even though he makes such remarks as " dad blame females " and " dumb ole English teachers " , Mr. Walk- er is a figure highly regarded by the faculty and students of Alleghany County High School. Mr. Walker astounds his trigonometry class with a complicated explanation of the tangent function. 14 Charles Holbert Keeps Alleghany Rolling Charles Holbert Behind every effective organization there is a power working to insure smoothness and efficiency in the handling of all matters. Mr. Charles Holbert is Alleghany ' s coordinator. Giving unselfishly of his time and effort, Mr. Holbert is on hand for all school activities, ready to give help in any way he can. Junior class members find that Mr. Holbert is a life saver concerning the prom. He helps the juniors with the concession stands which are operated to raise money for the prom. Mr. Holbert makes sure that every coke, candy bar, and piece of popcorn that is sold is counted and correctly corresponds to the amount of money collected. During the week before the prom, Mr. Holbert can be seen every night decorating or directing the work. As an instructor of biology, Mr. Holbert combines both humor and knowledge to provide an interesting class for his sophomore students. Being in charge of the buses is a big job and one that Mr. Holbert does well. He sees that the buses are kept in good running order, that the drivers are dependable men, and that the best bus routes are followed. Students and faculty alike owe much thanks to Mr. Holbert, a man dedicated to Alleghany High. Mr. Holbert appears all wound up as he unselfishly devotes his time to helping the juniors with the prom decorations. Biology students listen carefully as Mr. Holbert explains the proper method of handling lab test tubes. 15 Mr. Holbert discusses a route change with one of the school bus drivers. Office Workers Assist Administration Many large and small administrative duties that are often overlooked by the student body are performed by the sec- retaries and office staff of A.C.H.S. Mrs. McCaleb and Mrs. Snead com- petently direct the activities demanded of the office. At the same time, a limited number of students are given the opportunity to aid the secretaries and gain knowledge of office practices. These groups work together to compile data, take messages, operate the book- store, and perform numerous other tasks that keep the student body in- formed. Without the dedication of the office help, there would be a lack of organiza- tion resulting in utter chaos within the walls of Alleghany County High School. Mrs. McCaleb and Mrs. Snead share the responsibilities involved in the efficient operation of office duties. s E C R E T A R I E S Mrs. Dora McCaleb Mrs. Ellen Snead As members of the office staff, Mary Stinnett, Cary Reid, Allan Broughman, Ronnie Bennett, Jane Kern, Kay Basham, Jan Shawver, Evelyn Fridley, and Diane Dunford gain valuable experiences in office management. 16 " Guidance Is Groovy " By H. Gibson Whether a student is an eighth grader entering high school or a senior leaving high school, he relies heavily on the advice offered to him by the guidance counselors. Countless hours are spent by the three members of the A.C.H.S. guidance department who must update permanent records, administer academic, vocational, and aptitude tests, aid seniors in making decisions regarding the future, and work with each student individually in preparing his next course of study. Each student at Alleghany appreciates the guidance counselors who take infinite pains in finding the solutions to student problems. Nora K. O ' Farrell Timothy Barton Mr. Barton helps Linda Riley decide upon an appropiate schedule. Mrs. Reynolds prepares a college transcript for Nancy Burr. 17 With Proper Guidance, Alleghany High " Farmers " English class looks for meaning in contemporary music played by Mark Jones, Robin Noll, and David Shanks. Pat Sams and Kenny Higgins appear to share a joke at Miss Burton ' s expense. Pam Warner, Judy Friel, Jim Landis, and Jeff Scott who later placed in the district forensics meet receive last minute instructions from Mrs. Clinedinst. Miss Tuckwiler explains the fundamentals of letter writing to her freshmen class. Mrs. Whiteside stands thoughtfully as her class tackles one of her difficult English tests. 18 Miss Moore endeavors to enlighten her class concerning proper punctuation. Become Sophisticated English Scholars Joyce W. Barber Mary Litts Burton Marie P. McEwan Ann T. Barton Ellen Tuckwiler " Silence is golden " is not the rule for English students at A.C.H.S. Oral book reports, class discussions, and spontaneous speeches help students develop poise and confidence in communi- cating with their peers. Eighth graders move from a light to a more intricate study of the fundamentals of grammar as they strengthen their ability to use the English language. Freshmen delve into deeper literary works such as ROMEO AND JULIET, while sophomores receive their first glimpse of the immortal Shakespearean work, JULIUS CAESAR. Panic-stricken juniors experience sleepless nights as they des- perately struggle to beat term paper deadlines. At the same time, these eleventh graders are expected to continue their study of America ' s literary heritage. Seniors survey their understanding acquired from previous grammar courses before undertaking the study of British literature. Jacqueline Lee Moore 19 Students Keep Up With The Signs Of The M. Wesley Reed James David Williams Joseph Carpenter Mr. Williams discusses current affairs while the " Board of Directors " Mike Warwick, Jess Hand, and Stewart Brugh supervise. Mr. Carpenter looks on as individual groups draw up constitutions for their class. Edward O ' Rourke I JoAnn Bogan 20 Time Through Studies Of Social Sciences Mrs. McClintic supervises as Donna Johnson directs the campaign of the mock election in Civics class. Harold Carter Mr. Carter " amuses " his third period government class by relating a humorous incident. " We the people " becomes a phrase resounding in the hearts of history students at A.C.H.S. as they learn to appreciate the role that each individual plays in the development and execution of governmental principles. Eighth graders and juniors are required to study U.S. History to learn about their own country ' s customs, traditions, and ancestry. However, freshmen and sophomores have the option to select from such courses as Civics, World History, and World Geography. Civics is offered to those students primarily interested in the management of community affairs. Students with a desire to learn about ancient and modern civilizations with distinct peoples, languages, religions, and customs choose to participate in a World History class. World Geography offers an opportunity for the study of the location and resources of many countries. Seniors conclude their study of social sciences with U.S. Government from which they learn more about their CONSTITUTION, " the supreme law of the land " . 21 New Math Comes On Strong As Students Cope Barbara Waldeck Having made a class assignment, Miss Waldeck willingly gives individual help to her eighth graders. t Mr. Reid ponders over a difficult Algebra I problem before attempting to explain it to his class. Mrs. Rock looks up from her geometric drawing to find the cause of disturbance in the hall. At Alleghany, x ' s, y ' s, and z ' s no longer apply solely to the alphabet but to the mathematics department as well. Eighth graders discover that modern mathematics is a far cry from the simple additions and subtractions taught in elementary school. Students with college bound initiative pursue more specialized courses such as Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry in which they grasp the value of assumptions, proofs, and theorems, while a priviledged (?) few find that Mr. Walker ' s jokes and knowledge of tangents and cosines combine to form a most humorous and enlightening trig class. 22 Mr. Dunn chuckles silently as his class tackles a math quiz. With Relations, Functions, And Equations Frank Reid JoAnne Rock E. Edward Rhea Mr. Rhea strives to teach the meaning of absolute value to his Geometry students. 23 Science Students Soar Into The Age Of Mrs. Armstrong discusses the processes of photosynthesis and respiration with her biology students. In order to keep up with her work, Mrs. Glover spends her free period grading test papers. Interested physics students gather around the lab table to take part in an engrossing experiment. With time comes change and the world of science has changed drastically in the last decade. To meet the new challenges parallel- ing man ' s walk on the moon, students must have a vast knowledge of various scientific techniques. This realm of study at A.C.H.S. includes probing into the physical and bio- logical worlds of today. Eighth graders and freshmen learn to appreciate their world with its many me- chanical devices, while sophomore biology students are confronted with the study of the classification of living organisms and their anatomies. Junior and senior chemistry students, faced with valences, equations, and reactions, arm themselves with their slide rules and logarithms to meet their chal- lenges, while more advanced science students are motivated by the fascinating discoveries contained in the world of physics. 24 Biology students listen mystified as Mrs. Arm- strong lectures on the Nematoda and the Annelida. Aquarius Discovering Wonders Of The 70 ' s When science questions become too involved, the students call on Mrs. Humbert to help them untangle the complicated terminology. Mr. Merica finds the overhead projector quite advantageous in giving quizzes to his freshmen science class. Judge Newberry Flora Armstrong 25 Phys. Ed. Department Insures A Healthy New Mr. Teters ' seventh period class finds volleyball to be a stimulating sport that requires keen alertness. Mr. Phillips ' sixth period health students watch with interest as one of their classmates performs a forward roll on the mat. Alleghany ' s physical education department provides a thorough, well rounded program for building strong minds and bodies. Each student is required to take three years of phys. ed. and during this time he learns to develop skill in playing various sports, he develops good exercising habits, and he learns how to safeguard his well being through good health practices. Class study ranges from health in the eighth grade to first aid in the ninth and driver ' s education in the tenth grade. Gym work involves exercising, tumbling, bowling, basketball, softball, and golf. Through such a program, students develop co-ordination and endurance. Physical education is one of the most beneficial programs taken by high school students. Roger Phillips Jo Ann Carter Ed Teters 26 Generation By " Socking It To " The Students Sybil Hoover Miss Hoover instructs her health class in the proper care of broken bones. David Hyler shows strength and stamina as he climbs to the top. Keeping up with the 1-2-3-4 count, girls shape up with windmills. Softball is a favorite springtime sport for the girls phys. ed. Boys strain to meet the stiff requirements imposed by the state tests for physical classes, fitness. 27 Home Ec. Students Master Domestic Arts Mrs. Perdue demonstrates the proper way to thread a sewing machine to Karen Arritt. Shirley Dodd and Kathy Armentrout work together to prepare a tasty dessert for the D.E. Banquet. Marie Perdue Home Economics is a class which offers opportunities to every girl, regardless of her plans for the future. Skills such as sewing, cooking, and good grooming are a valuable asset to every girl. Home Ec. girls learn how to be neat and how to save time and effort by taking part in the preparations for the various dinners, banquets, and teas held at the school. Girls gain valuable ex- perience in choosing effective color schemes and home decorations through their work on the Christmas Formal and the Sadie Hawkins Dance. No matter what her curriculum, a girl who enrolls in Home Ec. will find a chance to make self improvements and to develop individual interests. Vella Knapp Mrs. Knapp teaches senior girls Penny Smith, Linda Loan, and Rita Owens how to save time and money by making their own clothing. 28 J. Simpson and T. Linkswiler look on as E. Patterson prepares the dough for peanut butter cookies. Industrial Arts Stimulates Creativity Mr. Loving demonstrates the proper use of the acetylene torch to his third period class. Alleghany ' s Industrial Arts Department proves that all that is to be learned does not come from books. Boys interested in architecture, mechanics, or carpentry have opportunities to develop useful skills in these respective fields. Shop instructors teach their students how to be both creative and constructive, using their hands along with their minds. Mechanical drawing students combine imagination with geometry in making blueprints of house plans, while wood and metal shop students learn to use the many tools and machines needed in building practical as well as beautiful articles. Tim Rollison operates a lathe in com- pleting his work. Robert Loving Robert Knabenshue Robert Jenkins 29 Business Department Develops Modern Skills Mrs. Harriet Bush Mrs. Margaret Sams Mrs. Maude Rae Swartz Mrs. Bush shows her seventh period office practice class that business can be mixed with pleasure. Students planning to work immediately after graduation are given vocational training by the business department of Alleghany County High School. Many persons enroll in Typing I classes to learn correct procedures for typing letters, themes, and term papers, while students aspiring to go into secretarial work enter Typing II classes. Further secretarial skills are gained by the more advanced business students in office practice, business math, shorthand, and bookkeeping courses. Thorough student preparation by Alleghany ' s business department insures that the individual will enter the working world adequately equipped to meet the challenges of the 70 ' s. In order to meet compelling deadlines, Mrs. Sams ' s seventh period Typing I class must work intently all period. 30 Language Students Speak With Forked Tongues Mrs. Nichols lectures her first year class on the location of France in relation to the rest of the world. Students wishing to become more a part of the world they live in and to be able to communicate more readily with other peoples in their society, engage in foreign language classes. Alleghany offers a varied foreign language curri- culum consisting of Spanish, French, and Latin. In addition to learning to speak and understand a for- eign language, students also learn of the history, customs, land, and people of other countries. As a result of taking foreign language courses, persons are better able to understand and appreciate their own English language. Mrs. Murphy explains one of the more difficult Latin declensions to Daryl Greene, Kevin Fitzgerald, and James Sizer. 31 Abstract Ideas Influence Art Students Miss Smith carefully examines the quality of Billy Williams ' work while the rest of the class continue with their drawings. Students interested in art find that Alleghany offers opportunities to discover and develop creative talents. Before beginning actual art work, students study the history of art and the renowned artists and their masterpieces. Art students also discover that colors must be combined in a definite pattern to be truly effective. Once they have learned the basic principles governing art, students begin individual drawings and paintings, while advanced students progress to more specialized art work such as pottery making and sculpture. J. Whitehead, D. Armentrout, A. Botkins, F. Kanney, J. McCray, D. Wolfe, and E. Smith Nancy Archie skillfully transforms a piece of clay exchange ideas regarding effective color combinations. into a stylish pitcher. 32 Library Challenges Faculty And Students Alleghany County High School ' s center of learning is the library. Here students seek to find references for term papers, obtain reading materials from the vast number of books, magazines, and newspapers available to them, and to study quietly. Other materials used by the faculty and students of A.C.H.S. are numerous maps, excellent films, a great number of records, and the newly added educational television. All these sources help make Alleghany ' s library a storehouse of useful information. Miss Wolfe and her student assistants make sure that all books borrowed from the library are returned and filed on their correct shelves. The efficient supervision of the librarian and her staff insures that each student will ha ve an equal opportunity to pursue his academic endeavors. Mary Helen Wolfe Librarian Kevin Johnson, Earl Fuller, Gratten Hepler, and Steve Wilcher find Miss Wolfe files cards for the numerous books in the library, the conference room an ideal place for group study. Library science students, O. Jordan, B. Dodd, B. Craft, D. Dodd, C. Lindsay, B. Williams, K. Basham, P. Smith, and J. Ruble, assist Miss Wolfe with daily tasks in the library. 33 New Study Hall Program Initiated Mrs. Perdue, Mrs. Smith, and Alan Botkins search to find the cause of the disturbance in sixth period study hall. For the first time in the history of Alleghany County High School, study hall students find themselves with a regular teacher. Mrs. Jean Smith capably manages her unusually large classes, substituting a strictly disciplined study period for one in which confusion and bedlam had pre- viously ruled. Due to Mrs. Smith ' s keen supervision and severe enforcement of the no talking rule, students wishing to study no longer need to plug their ears with cotton in futile attempts to acquire quietude. " Perched atop her roost " , Mrs. Smith is easily able to detect even the slightest disturbances which might threaten to disrupt the tranquil atmosphere. Mrs. Jean Smith Mrs. Smith keeps a watchful eye over each study hall class. 34 I Duff, Jonas, Head D.E. And Drivers ' Ed. Mr. Jonas prepares to climb aboard for a ride with one of his Drivers ' Ed. students. Distributive Education provides useful training for students who plan to work parttime during school and then full time following graduation. Under the instruction of Mr. Duff, D.E. students learn many useful business practices such as good advertising, courtesy to customers, and neatness. D.E. students are usually given top priority in job placement. Drivers ' Education is one of the most important courses offered to high school students. With the passage of the new law requiring drivers ' education for everyone under eighteen who applies for a driver ' s license, high school students bide their time until they are old enough to take behind the wheel training. With patience, Mr. Jonas trains each student in the skills necessary for good driving. Drivers ' Education is one of the best loved of all courses. 35 T.F.D. Tackles Both Choir And Psychology Mr. Farrar displays dual talents as he instructs both choir and psychology classes. Students " hung up " on music find they can " let their hair down " as they sing to their hearts ' content. Free expression and talent development are encouraged in the choir. Choir students work diligently to give a good Christmas concert and a smashing spring musical. Psychology offers students a good chance to study and explore human behavior pat- terns. Students find that the human mind is a most mystifying and amazing organ. Psychology students also learn about many emotional and mental problems and the symptoms that accompany them. Psychol- ogy is one of the most interesting subjects offered in the high school curriculum. Intent third period choir students practice for their presentation of Christmas music. In perfect harmony, the choir gives a beautiful concert under Mr. Farrar ' s direction. Choir students take a few minutes to warm up before appearing on stage. Mr. Farrar explains the harmful use of drugs to his sixth period psychology class. 36 Band Members March To Their Own Music Leonard Baber C. Lockard, M. Williams, R. Persinger, J. Henson, and R. Powell appear nervous as they prepare to do a halftime show for the Alleghany-Clifton game. Mr. Baber impatiently waits for his class to assemble their instruments. Jay Lienhardt puts his clarinet together in preparation for the spring concert. Alleghany County High School has a band that it can be proud of. Under the direction of Mr. Baber, band members spend many hours in practice. Band students learn the importance of proper breathing and the proper form to have in marching. Dressed in their red, blue, and white uniforms, the band members are a good representation of their school. Much thanks is owed to a band that works so hard to perform well in parades, in halftime shows, and at pep rallies. Trying to keep up with their elders, sixth period junior band members practice daily under Mr. Baber ' s supervision. Bridging The Generation Gap, A.C.H.S. Tiny Tim, alias Richard Duff, enchants the audience of the Junior Class Talent Show by singing " Tiptoe Through the Tulips. " Mr. Walker shows supreme cheering ability as he leads Joyce May, Debbie Stogdale, Kay Owens, Christy Franson, Steffy Nicely, Vicky Fuller, and Dinah Lockard in the masculine version of " Hey, Hey, You Colts. " Mr. Walker, Mr. Carpenter, and Mr. Holbert spend a few minutes " goofing off " in the library. Mrs. Swartz finds that " things go better with Coke.

Alleghany ' s football field was the setting for the annual Home- coming ceremonies under the direc- tion of Miss Jo Ann Bogan. Each contestant for Homecoming Queen rode in review past the stadium and then returned to mid-field to be introduced individually. Tension rose to a full height until Mr. Rob- ert Lawler crowned Linda Loan Homecoming Queen for 1969. Climaxing the evening was a fes- tive dance with music provided by " The Intrusions. " Mr. Lawler re- crowned Linda preceeding the Queen ' s Dance. Following this pres- entation the students and alumni attending the dance drifted out onto the floor amid unusual and striking decorations for an enjoy- able evening. 44 Homecoming Festivities Becky Simpson accepts her bouquet from Jerry Fury before being presented to the Homecoming spectators.

Towering above the dancefloor, an enormous Christmas tree, en- circled by silver bells, provided the focal point of the evening. Beneath the ornamented branches, lovely girls in flowing gowns danced with their debonaire escorts. Highlighting the formal were the presentations of a band ensemble. The Contemporary Real, and a duet performed by Sherry Smith and Alan Craft. Patty Morris was crowned Alleg- hany ' s second Snow Queen, as a re- latively new tradition was continued. Others of her court were Pat Shiff- lett, Tim Rollison and William Con- nor. At the close of a most memorable evening, everyone ' s thoughts turned to the happiness and joys of the upcoming New Year. Silver bells sway to and fro above the huge, shimmering tree as couples dance to a fast number. 46 And Usher In The Excitement Of 1 Accenting the theme of the evening, Alan Craft and Sherry Smith harmonize to " Silver Bells " .

The mood of the occasion was em- bodied in the theme, " A Time For Us, " and sentimental music was provided by Stonehenge. Throughout the evening, couples danced dreamily by the unusual centerpiece, a three-dimensional heart covered with rosebuds and ivy. The seasonal theme was further carried out by the Valentine cookies and pink punch served be- fore the crowning of the Sweet- heart Queen and King. As the number of dancers dwindled, cupids and hearts began disappearing from the walls. And tiny rosebuds from the central heart were carried home carefully to be preserved with happy mem- ories. Members of the Sweetheart court open the Queen ' s dance after the coronation. Sweetheart Queen and King, Chris Pierannunzi and Jonathan Williams, assume their titles with poise and pleasure. 49 Creating A Romantic World And Setting Harvey Dobbins hopes no one is watching as he plucks a rosebud for Donna Brisendine from the entwined heart. Gary Childs and Melissa Plemmons seem to have similar intentions. Couples dance to one of the slow melodies provided by Stonehenge. 50 " A Time For Us " Emphasizing the theme of the evening, Debbie Fore plays " A Time For Us " as Sherry Smith sings the theme. Jackie Nicely and her date, Robert Smith, pause to admire the painting in the trophy case before entering the dance. 1970 Sweetheart Dance court includes: Judy Friel, Cary Reid, Joan Byer, Butch Simpson, Martha Stephenson, Pat Sams, Chris Pierannunzi, Jonathan Williams, Tracie Dickson, Harvey Dobbins, Sherry Smith, and Gary Childs. 51 Dogpatch, U.S.A., Swings To A Modern Beat As Stonehenge teaches some Dogpatch residents to dance to a slower tune. Crazy clothes, a handful of odd change, and matching patches were prerequisites to attending the Sadie Hawkins dance. From 7:13 to 11:13 hillbillies-for-the-night capered around balloons, streamers, and a friendly scarecrow. At 9:13 the music was stopped to announce 1970 ' s Daisy Mae and Li ' l Abner. Other noted dignitaries for the evening were the winners of the fast and slow dance con- tests. Linda Loan and Rolando Kopak won in the first category, while Joy St. Clair and Daryl Green were named slow-dance favorites. Square dancing and playing " crack-the-whip " added to the zany fun and to the note of gaity which ended the night. As each girl escorted her date home, she was already looking forward to the return of Sadie Hawkins next year. With paddle in hand, Linda Loan threatens a terri- fied Rolando Kopak.

By the time the curtain rose for Bus Stop, many members of the senior class had already put forth a great effort to make the production a success. Washing windshields as a promotional stunt proved to be hard work mixed with fun, while finding restaurant tables challenged the properties committee. The art classes contributed their talent through the backdrops used in the play. The skillful stage crew combined effective lighting and sound effects to lend reality to the props. Under the direction of Mr. Richard C. Duff and after long hours of practice, the eight cast members learned to identify with the roles they had assumed. Mrs. Joyce Barber and Mrs. Harriet Bush aided each individual ' s progress with helpful hints and constructive criticism during the many exacting rehearsals. Essential for the realism of the play were the efforts of the make-up committee, headed by Connee Broughman, while Marsha Dressier and Linda Tolley served as prompters and filled in for absent cast members when necessary. As the dates for the performances grew nearer, seniors began a house-to-house campaign to sell tickets to interested patrons for the Thursday and Friday night presentations. The enthusiastic response of the audience justified the many hours of work and hopeful anticipation devoted to Bus Stop. 56 Virgil Blessing plays his guitar during the floor show.

After Weeks Of Suspense And Speculation, Miss Alcova, the ideal senior girl, is chosen after long and serious deliberation. Initially, twelve girls are nominated by each senior, and the votes are tallied to determine the twelve candidates. These candidates then must be interviewed by a panel of five judges, who rate them on the basis of general awareness, poise and appearance, personal- ity, school spirit and dating habits. The names of the finalists are not disclosed until the girls are recognized in a special assembly. Martha Stephenson, served as president of the Sr. Tri-Hi-Y and vice-president of the Spanish Club. She was tapped into the Na- tional Honor Society, and was chosen " Most Likely to Succeed " by her senior classmates. Martha was valedictorian of the class of 1970. Trade Dickson has been Pep Club Presi- dent for two years, and the senior class voted her " Most School Spirited. " At grad- uation she received the " I Dare You " award. She represented A.C.H.S. at Girls State. Chris Pierannunzi was president of the Spanish Club and of the National Honor Society. She attended Girls ' State her junior year. Chris served as secretary of the S.C.A. and of the Pep Club her senior year and was an honor graduate. Judy Friel played girls ' basketball for four years and participated in forensics com- petition.

" Stonemason " Mike Warwick hur- ries to make the deadline. Emerging for a rest at the fountain are Brenda Ailstock, Roger Crawford, Missie Johnson, and Gary Clark. 64 " A Royal Knight " Glimmering against a black velvet sky, flaming torches greeted arrivals to the 1970 Junior-Senior Prom. Pages stood at attention in the royal garden as couples lingered near a sparkling fountain. Massive stone walls flanked the passageway to the interior of the castle-and " Ye Olde Dungeon. " Faint light filtered into the ballroom through arched, stained-glass windows, and stone columns separated fruit-laden tables from the dance floor. In the center of the room, a papier-mache knight stood ready to remove the sword Excalibur from a huge stone. A golden chandelier em- phasized the canopy of crepe paper which formed a high-vaulted ceiling. For the coronation ceremony, a scarlet carpet was rolled out, while a flourish of trumpets pro- claimed the arrival of the rulers of the kingdom. Seniors and Junior class officers then assembled to begin the traditional Grand March, after which dancing resumed until midnight. Contrasting sharply with the knight ' s heavy armor and the sword in the stone is the medieval splendor of the ornate chandelier. Joe Massie, Linda Loan, Mark Smith, Becky Simpson, Chuck Anthony, Mary Beth Bodell, Frankie Sellers, and Molly Swartz somberly lead the Grand March. 65 Highlighting the prom for all seniors is the Grand March.

Savoring their last formal dance of the year, seniors catch the eyes of all present as they dance at the conclusion of the Grand March. Filling punch cups seems an endless task to serving girls Susie Spraggins and Theresa Leighton. Here they are found serving Wanda Hughes, Buddy Ray, Genelda Wallace, and Bruce Johnson. Juniors and seniors alike respond to the tempo set by the Gene Thomas Orchestra. 67 Exchanging funny comments is a favorite diversion for couples while waiting for refreshments. Though the dancing styles differ, everyone seems to have a good time. Freshmen Don Shanks, Mike Noel, Genie Bodell, and Nancy Kay Andrews watch the proceedings of the prom with envy. 68 Sally Showalter lends an air of " Camelot " to the prom by Vivian Winston, court oracle, gazes into the future to predict the probable singing " If Ever I Would Leave You.

To A Memorable Senior Banquet Taking time out from dancing, Ronnie Bennett, Jonathan Wil- liams, James Craft, Norman Craft, and Vernon Mosby engage in a game of pool. Relaxing after an hour of dancing, Susan Fuller and Mark Smith listen to the music of the band. Alleghany Country Club served as the location for the 1970 Senior Banquet. Strolling on the grounds of the club, playing pool, or eating, the seniors and their guests enjoyed this last social event of their high school days. The meal itself satisfied even Mr. Walker ' s voracious appetite (he was the first to take a bite), and entertainment provided by Vernon Mosby and Jerry Kolb left everyone speechless with laughter. After the buffet, tables and chairs were removed to make way for a band and an evening of dancing. Many faculty members were daring enough to join students and dance to the pulsing rock beat as well as the calmer numbers. 71 Jerry Kolb gives his rendition of a Flip Wilson monologue for the entertainment of the banquet guests. The Hearafter provided music for the Senior Banquet. Excited seniors and sponsors enjoy a hearty meal and a chance to chat with friends. 72 ’ A • 4 Guests of the head table appear amused by the antics of the others present. - n 1 Dancers swing into action for a forty-minute version of " In-A- Gadda-Da-Vida.

Tim Heironimus, Kay Basham, and Allan Broughman solemnly await the final moment when they will be officially proclaimed graduates of ACHS. One elated graduate gets a proud mother ' s reward for a job well done. Varsity Cheerleaders Turn In Superb Job Varsity Cheerleaders: Cindy Lockard, Debbie Fore, Captain Linda Loan, Julie Farrar, Donna Ayers, Mary Beth Bodell, Molly Swartz, Sally Showalter. When thinking of athletics one tends to overlook a very important facet of the athletic events. Cheerleaders! During these contests one can find the cheerleaders trying to inspire more spirit into the spectators and urging the players on to victory for the Colt team. Many hours of hard work go into every cheer and pom-pon routine that the cheerleaders do in order to perform each maneuver smoothly throughout the contest. Often these efforts of the cheerleaders are not taken into consideration by the spectators. With the leadership of Captain Linda Loan the squad this year was able to exhibit fine coordination and outstanding leadership in school spirit. The hard work and efforts of the cheerleaders at A.C.H.S. go far beyond merely cheering at the games. Most of the girls attend summer camp where they learn many new cheers and ways to increase school spirit. Then when August comes the squad is practicing every day for two or three hours. Once school starts practice does not let up; if anything, the pace picks up during school. Athletics just would not be athletics at A.C.H.S. without the determination and hard work of the unheralded cheerleaders. Head cheerleader, Linda Loan congratulates Rolando Kapak after one of the many Colt victories. 78 As School Spirit At A.C.H.S.

Alleghany ' s varsity cheerleaders appear to be jumping to avoid the b asketball; however, they are really demonstrating the outstanding school spirit that was their trademark throughout the 1969-70 athletic season. 79 Nineteen Seniors Pace Second Place Finish Varsity Football: B. Ray, B. Siple, C. Bocook, R. McDowell, H. Dobbins, C. Leeds, T. Heironimus, C. Dodd, P. Riley, M. Buzzard, M. Bradley, H. Gayhardt, R. Dillard, F. Sellers, K. Higgins, G. Garrett, C. Anthony, R.

Mosby, M. Jones, D. Broce. At the beginning of the 1969 football season, Alleghany was predicted to finish no higher than sixth place in the tough Blue Ridge District. But the Colts proved the forecasters wrong with their outstanding 7-3 record and second place finish. This season was marked by more success than disappointment. A.C.H.S. took the measure of the Franklin County Eagles in the season opener by a 34-13 count, proving to all Blue Ridge opponents that Alleghany was to be no push-over. Alleghany lost but two Blue Ridge contests by a combined total of five points; however, the 12-8 loss to the Clifton Forge Mountaineers was the greatest disappointment of the season. Much of the grief was soon relieved when A.C.H.S. was victorious over the Covington Cougars (18-6) for the first time in the school ' s history. After the tremendous win over the Cougars, only three games stood between the Colts and the Blue Ridge District title. The following week Northside came to A.C.H.S. to play the colts in the game that would decide the Blue Ridge District championship. The Vikings won the game by the narrow margin of 7-6. The next week Al leghany came back to trounce Brookville 29-0. The final game of the year was the most exciting as Alleghany defeated Addison 15-14 on Butch Simpson’s 30 yard field goal with six seconds remaining. The Alleghany-Addison clash ended a dramatic, but very successful, 1969 football season at A.C.H.S. Kenny Higgins leaps high to grab one of his record setting eleven interceptions. 80 In Alleghany ' s Blue Ridge District Debut I I Lord Botetourt Coach Pete Ergenbright of- fers his congratulations to Alleghany Coach Bill Jonas after the Colts upset the previous- ly unbeaten Cavaliers.

The young Colts opened the 1969 season very impressively as they routed the Valley J.V. ' s 66-0. The contest showed to Alleghany fans that the Junior Varsity had an explosive offense and an equally formidable defense. The next foe was Clifton Forge and again the Colt J.V. ' s were victorious, 52-0. The following game the Cougar J.V. ' s played on even terms with the Alleghany team before bowing 8-6 in a tough defensive struggle. In the fourth game the Junior Colts traveled to Glenvar and met their first defeat of the season, 14-8. Alleghany suffered its first shut-out and second defeat of the season at the hands of the revenge minded Covington Cougars, 12-0. The A.C.H.S. J.V. ' s held the Mounties of Clifton Forge scoreless for the second time of the season by posting a 22-0 win over the arch-rival. Flowever, the Colts fell to the much bigger Vikings of Northside by a score of 24-0. The Colt J.V. ' s ended their 1969 season on a winning note by defeating the James River Knights by a 28-12 count.

Alleghany ' s best football record was turned in by the eighth grade team, which was coached by Ed Teters in his first year at A.C.H.S. The combination of fine effort and hard work produced the excellent 5-1 record for the 1969 season. The baby Colts ' lone loss came in their first game of the season with Cave Springs by a 27-7 score. The following week A.C.H.S. played host to the Cougars of Covington and emerged victorious, 14-0. The next game was with Botetourt Intermediate and the eighth graders responded with a 21-0 shutout over the punchless Cavaliers. Greenbrier Military, a newcomer on the Colt schedule, soon found out who the Colts were as the streaking Colts won 12-2. With the momentum on their side, the Colts trounced the Botetourt Intermediate team for the second time of the season, 46-0. The final game of the season pitted the baby Colts in a rematch with the Covington eighth graders, whom the Colts beat by the narrow margin of 8-6. The fine athletes produced by the 1969 eighth grade team creates a bright future for the A.C.H.S. football program. Bob Bolden (20), the leading scorer for the little Colts, breaks loose for a long gain in Alleghany ' s 14-0 victory over the Covington Cougar eighth graders. 86 1969 Varsity Fillies Produce 3-3 Record Girls ' Varsity Basketball Team: B. Downey, C. Broughman, N. Burr, J. Friel, D. Morris, V. Winston, D. Via, J. Nicely, J. Worley, D. Dodd. Alleghany ' s Girls ' Varsity basketball team broke even in their 1969 campaign with a regular season record of three wins and a like number of losses. The Fillies ' first season encounter was with the always tough Milboro Kittens, who quickly showed their scoring power by more than doubling the Fillies output 52-25 for the game. However, the A.C.H.S. girls bounced back to take a hard fought 34-24 victory over the Valley Queen Bees to bring Alleghany ' s record to 1-1. For the next game, the Fillies traveled to James River and lost by a 43-34 margin even though Alleghany received 13 point performances from Nancy Burr and Debbie Morris. Milboro came to A.C.H.S. for a rematch, but this time Alleghany turned the tables and won going away 43-20. Nancy Burr ' s 21 points led to the Fillies third victory of the season and second win over Valley ' s Queen Bees by a 41-13 count. The final regular season game was won by James River in a close one, 29-23. In the post-season tournament A.C.H.S. lost twice, once to James River (36-32) and then to Valley (44-28).

Squad Ever Junior Varsity Girls ' Basketball: Karen Bess, Cindy Roberts, Eunice Hoke, Cennie Barrington, Coach Wallace, Kathy Willis, Barbara Craft, Julia Paitsel, Sharon Nicely, Vickie Fridley. Alleghany County added a new dimension to the Girls ' basketball program during the 1969 season. For the first time in the school ' s history, A.C.H.S. fielded a Junior Varsity Girls ' basketball team. The Junior Varsity ended the year with a perfect record; the kind of perfect record no team wants. The little Fillies won no games while losing six. However, the 1969 season was far from being a failure. The Junior Varsity team enabled eighth and ninth graders to participate and gain experience for future years on the Varsity. In the season opener for both teams, Milboro defeated the little Fillies by a close score of 17-14. A.C.H.S. hosted the Valley Queen Bees in the second game of the season only to come out on the short end of a 16-7 score. The Alleghany Junior Varsity girls traveled to Springfield to meet powerful James River. The little Knights handed the Fillies their third straight loss by a 25-11 count. The Junior Varsity Girls returned home to host the Milboro Wildcats in the fourth game of the year. The Fillies battled the Wildcats on even terms before bowing by a mere two points, 16-14. The red hot Valley Queen Bees jumped off to a fast start and went on to defeat the J.V. Girls 30-18. A.C.H.S. Girls closed the season with the exact same score as the season opener. However, this time the foe was James River and the Knights were victorious 17-14. With a year ' s experience behind them the young Fillies have the ability to aid the V arsity program in the years ahead.

Alleghany athletics got off on the right foot in Blue Ridge competition as the Cross Country team went undefeated and swept the district championship. The first of nine Colt vic- tories came in the season opener against Lucy Addison High School. The Bulldogs fell to the powerful Colts by a score of 23-34 (low score wins). In the next encounter Giles County provided little opposition as the Colts romped 15-50 which is a perfect score in Cross Country. A.C.H.S. defeated Addison once again 17-46 in between victories over Milboro and Northside by the identical scores of 18-42. Riverheads, the same team that defeated the Colts for the district champion- ship in 1968, was beaten rather convincingly as the Colts recorded a 23-34 victory. A.C.H.S. routed Holy Cross 15-50 in scoring their second perfect score of the season. The Colts prepared for the District Meet by defeating E. C. Glass 23-34 in the season finale. Alleghany easily swept the District Meet by totaling 24 points compared to second place Northside ' s 53. Addison and Liberty followed with 67 and 96 points respect- ively. The Colts closed their 1969 season by placing sixth in the State Meet.

Alleghany ' s 1969-70 wrestling team suffered through a losing season in its first year of IB competition. The final record was 5-8, but with a few breaks it could have been much better. The Colts had to start from scratch as head coach Bill Jonas greeted only three experienced grapplers. A.C.H.S. did have several bright spots this season as the Colts defeated arch-rival Clifton Forge twice and neighboring Covington once. In the first match of the season Alleghany easily defeated Greenbrier West by a score of 36-13. Following the Greenbrier encounter, A.C.H.S. lost the next two matches to William Byrd and Covington by scores of 25-24 and 29-16 respectively. The Colts then evened their season record at 2-2 with a 34-14 victory over Shady Springs. The remainder of the regular season proved to be disastrous as the Colts won but three of nine matches. However, the victories came over arch-rivals Covington and Clifton Forge. A.C.H.S. went on to place fourth in the district tournament with Terry Platt and Kit Lemon leading the way with second place finishes. The Colts closed their season by finishing 6th in the State regionals which were highlighted by C. W. Bocook ' s second place finish in the 155 pound weight class. 92 C. W. Bocook successfully executes a reversal to gain two points against his opponent from Glenvar. Several Weight Classes Result In 5-8 Record Alleghany Wrestling Record A.C.H.S.

And Eighth Grade Cheering Squads 1 SSSk - V ' sSk Junior Varsity Cheerleaders: Susie Spraggins, Patricia Showalter, Linda Kesterson, Karen Carr, Terry Burgandine. Alleghany County High School has always been known for the outstanding cheerleaders that cheer at all athletic events. The talent and hard work is obvious in the varsity cheering squad, but the Eighth Grade and Junior Varsity cheerleaders often go unnoticed. However, just because these two squads cheer without much recognition does not mean that they do not put forth as much effort as the Varsity cheerleaders. Many hours are spent practicing the cheers by both the Eighth Grade and Junior Varsity cheering squads. Their efforts are not in vain as many of them go on to be Varsity cheerleaders. The long hours of practice and hard work are revealed by the tremendous amount of spirit that eighth and ninth graders possess. The outstanding school spirit of these two grades is a direct result of the Eighth Grade and Junior Varsity cheer- leaders. Each year the Junior Varsity and Eighth Grade cheerleaders have at least one pep rally. The spirit of the two grades is then turned loose and all the credit must go to the J.V. and Eighth Grade cheerleaders. No matter what is said, the Junior V ' arsity and Eighth Grade cheerleaders at A.C.H.S. are tremendous leaders in school spirit. Patricia Showalter is silhouetted against the big bonfire before Alle- ghany ' s annual Homecoming football game. 94 Display An Abundance Of Talent And Spirit Eighth Grade Cheerleaders: Vickie Fuller, Joyce May, Debbie Stogdale, Kay Owens, Christy Franson, Stephanie Nicely, Nancy Childs, Dinah Lockard. Alleghany ' s Eighth Grade cheering squad participates in one of its many functions as they cheer the A.C.H.S. wrestling team to victory over the Covington Cougars. 95 Lack Of Height Proves To Be Insurmountable Varsity Basketball Team: Buddy Ray, Jonathan Williams, Captain C. E. Andrews, Bill Siple, Harvey Dobbins, Robert Chambers, Butch Simpson, Norman Craft, Coach Walker, Larry Schoppmeyer, Mike Johnson, Johnny McCaleb. As a team, the 1969-70 varsity basketball team did not do anything particularly outstanding. The Colts finished the regular season with a 7-1 1 won-loss record and split two games in tournament action. However, the record is a bit deceiving. Alleghany was known to play in spurts and when everything was going their way, the Colts could compete with the best in the district. Dunbar and Addison were two of the finest teams in the Blue Ridge District. In fact, Dunbar went on to capture the district crown. But the Colts proved to be no pushover for either Dunbar or Addison as last minute surges pulled both games out of the fire for the opposition. Despite the poor record, Alleghany produced several exceptional individual stars. Buddy Ray was one of the top scorers in the Blue Ridge District with an average of 22.5 points per game. Buddy now ranks as the top scorer in Alleghany ' s school history with 881 points and still another year to go. With graduation this year, the varsity basketball team loses the number two and number three scorers in the school ' s history. Jonathan Williams finish- ed the season with 765 career points while C. E. Andrews was close behind with 744 points. C. E. also ranks as the top rebounder in the school ' s history with 515 grabs. Even though Alleghany ' s record was not sensational, the Colts did provide an exciting brand of basketball. 96 One of the Blue Ridge District ' s top scorers, Alleghany ' s Buddy Ray (30) goes high to arch a shot over Addison ' s Mike Cooper (24).

Playing in his first tournament game, Larry Schoppmeyer (15) dribbles by an unidentified Liberty player and aids Alleghany ' s 78-75 overtime victory over the Minutemen. Jonathan Williams (11) leaps high to score two points against Gene Fielder (14) of Northside; however, all was in vain as the Vikings defeated the Colts 75-62. Alleghany ' s Harvey Dobbins (41) attempts to shoot over Supernard Harris (30) of Northside who, at 6 foot 9 inches, was the Blue Ridge District ' s tallest player. 98 Colt Seniors Are Caught In Unusual Positions C.

Rolan, R. Vent, R. Byers, Coach James David Williams. Alleghany ' s Junior Varsity Basketball team managed to compile a rather remarkable record during the 1969-70 season. Only the Franklin County Eagles managed to blemish the mark of the J.V. Colts. However, the record achieved by the Junior Varsity was not one to be proud of. In eighteen starts the Colts came out on top in only one encounter; the lone victim being the Franklin County J.V. team. Despite the poor record, the J.V. Colts showed hustle and determination every time that they came onto the court. The Colts also produced several outstanding players. One J.V. , Larry Schoppmeyer, was brought up to the varsity squad and became a starter late in the season. Larry was a tremendous aid to both the Junior Varsity and Varsity. Losing records seemed to plague the basketball teams at A.C.H.S. during the 69-70 season as the eighth grade team also struggled through a losing year. The charges of Tim Barton completed the year with a 4-6 mark which was highlighted by twovictories over arch-rival Covington. Archie Lemon was very consistent in the 69-70 campaign and finished the year as the leading scorer. Playmaker Oliver Jordan (22) attempts to out maneuver an unidentified Addison player in the Colt-Bulldog clash which the Colts lost 56-25. 100 But Learn Valuable Fundamentals For Future Paul Riley (54), a steady scorer for the J.V.

Dressier, R. Poe, Coach Teters, Coach Rhea, Coach Phillips, B. Johnson. Alleghany County High School had their first sub five hundred record in three years. However, that recofd was just one victory from being even for the season at 3-4. In their first meet the Colts did not lose nor win, but instead tied with Lord Botetourt at 68 all. The Colts did manage to set almost all of the school records this year. C. W. Bocook set the high hurdles record of 16.9 and Gary Childs set a new 220 yard dash record at 22.5. Gary also tied the 100 yard dash in a time of 10.2 seconds. In the newest of the field events, the triple jump, an automatic record of 39 ft. and 5 inches was set by Steve Showalter. In the State Meet, Joe Massie set the school record of 10 minutes and 12 seconds in the grueling two mile run. The Colts had few experienced participants in the main events, but because of the interest this year in track. Coach Rhea can look forward to much experience and possibly a banner season. Alleghany ' s young trackmen came through with a good year and displayed several boys that could easily become the track stars of tomorrow. With the fine turnout for the J.V. track this year and the interest in the county field day, the outlook for track at Alleghany seems to be on the rise.

Gary tied a school record in the event at 10.2 seconds. Although he was one of the smaller members of the track squad, Vernon Mosby led the team in both the shot and discus. Vernon ' s determination can be clearly seen by the expression on his face after releasing the shot. 105 Kevin Fitzgerald, the ace pole vaulter for the Colts, clears the bar perfectly to capture first place in the pole vault event of the Alleghany Invitational which the Colts won for the second straight year.

Rogers, T. Craft, C. Reid, Coach Carpenter, D. Tucker. Fantastic is the only word to describe the Colt baseball season. The Colts swept both the regular season title and the post-season tournament title in awesome fashion. Besides going 15-1 for the year, the mighty Colts also had a majority of hitters over the .300 mark. Buddy Ray led the way with an even .500 average while Jonathan Williams and Kenny Higgins followed closely with .481 and .469 respectively. Every hitting record was broken in this banner season by the sluggers of A.C.H.S. The only mar of the Colt record was a 5-4 defeat at the hands of the Northside Vikings. Many people felt that the Colt victory express had come to the end of the road with the loss to Northside. The Colts proved these people wrong as Alleghany promptly reeled off four straight wins in route to capturing the regular season and tournament championship. The 1970 season closed out a four year career for Alleghany ' s captains Jonathan Williams, C. E. Andrews, Butch Simpson, and Kenny Higgins. During these four years, Alleghany captur- ed three district crowns and had a fine 50-8 overall record. This tremendous record establishes a great challenge to future baseball teams at A.C.H.S. 107 Colt catcher Butch Simpson adds one more run to the Colts ' total as Alleghany routed Clifton Forge 12-0 in the first round of Blue Ridge District tournament play.

Jonathan scored 34 times during the 1970 season to smash the school scoring record. Alleghany was not all offense during the 1970 season. Their defense was also fantastic and first baseman C.E. Andrews wa s one of the leaders in the defensive department. Here, C.E. is shown catching a fly ball. Star pitcher and most valuable player Buddy Ray delivers a pitch in one of the Colt contests.

Neal, S. Parham, S. Parham, B. May. Baseball is rapidly becoming a legend in its own time at A.C.H.S. Most people realize the fact that Alleghany always has a powerful varsity baseball team. However, the junior varsity team often goes unnoticed, but not rightfully so. The 1970 season marked the second straight year that they have gone undefeated. This year the J.V. record was eight wins and no losses. For the last three years the J.V. program at Alleghany has aided the varsity team immensely. The talent that the junior varsity develops is a key factor in the outstand- ing teams that the varsity fields each year. During the 1970 season, for the first time, the little Colts began playing varsity squads from Highland and New Castle. Each time the J.V. ' s came out on top and each time the scores were rather convincing. Coach Jenkins started another young squad this year which was composed of mostly eighth and ninth graders. The boys played with the poise of seasoned veterans and finished the season in flying colors. Going through an entire season undefeated is a feat that is rarely accomplished, but the A.C.H.S. J.V. baseball team succeeded. Each member of the team can be proud of the 1970 season for a long, long time. Fireballer George Quinlan is shown warming up before the start of an inning in one of the J.V. games. George was the iron man on the mound for the little Colts throughout the 1970 season. 110 Through Second Straight Undefeated Season 1970 J.V. Baseball Team Record A.C.H.S.

A representative government, the assembly consists of an elected delegate from each homeroom. In March, a full-scale campaign by each of the ten officer candidates excitingly transforms the school. Finally, the installation ceremony conducted in the spring signifies the retirement of the preceding officers. Minor projects undertaken by the S.C.A. involved Saturday Session, an article in the COVINGTON VIRGINIAN, Student Council membership cards, and an eight by twelve American flag for the gymnasium wall. Toward the end of the year, a contest for the design of a county seal was sponsored. Probably the most significant accomplishment of the S.C.A. was the formation and presentation of an honor system. Encouraged by a trip to William Byrd High School, the officers made gradual progress toward acceptance of the system by the student body.

Character, leadership, scholarship, and service are the high ideals personified by members of the Frances D. Butler Chapter of the National Honor Society. Qualified juniors and seniors are selected by a faculty committee. Although the tapping-in ceremony was staged in the fall rather than in the spring, the Society remained small in comparison with most of Alleghany ' s organizations. Despite this handicap, sufficient funds were raised (primarily through a stationery sale) to provide a $100 scholarship for this year ' s recipient. Miss Jan Shawver. Eight black students were invited to participate in a compre- hensive discussion conducted by the Honor Society, at which views on the racial issues at A.C.H.S. were aired. The experience proved enlightening as well as interesting. During a final program meeting, Mr. Steve Adams from the Community College conversed with the N.H.S. members on the subjects of pollution and conservation. N.H.S. officers. Sherry Smith, Chris Pierannunzi, David Wallis, Martha Stephenson, and Judy Friel, seem pleased as they inspect the newly- arrived stationery. 119 Pep Club Boosts Morale As Alleghany Sponsor Jo Ann Bogan encourages M. Frye and T. Mays to purchase red Pep Club sweaters. At the Athletic Awards assembly, Jan Shawver, Sherry Smith, and Elizabeth Rooklin are recognized for their outstanding spirit. One-hundred and twenty-eight students make up a club known for promoting school spirit, not only at athletic contests, but within the school itself. This club is the A.C.H.S. Pep Club. In its third year of existence, the Pep Club had increased membership and increased activities. Decorating the gymnasium for the Homecoming Dance was a responsibility given the Pep Club, this year. Red, white, and Columbia blue streamers, plus an " A " constructed from cellophane, chicken wire, and wood, helped to create a happytime mood. Red monogrammed sweaters were re-ordered for the Pep Club members who wanted them. In addition to making posters for games, the Pep Club also had skits during pep rallies. Colt Pep Club members, dubbed " Filly Farmers, " chal- lenged the Cougar Pep Club in a thrilling flag football game. Under the coaching of Tim Barton, the Filly Farmers met an unfortunate defeat, but the game was enjoyed by all members who took a part. Jan Shawver, Elizabeth Rooklin, and Sherry Smith were presented the Pep Club awards for being the three best members, at the end of the school year. Officers T. Dickson, S. Smith, C. Pierannunzi, M. Stephen- son, and M. Dressier relax as the final poster is hung. 120 Accepts Challenge Of Blue Ridge District First row: G. Minter, D. Treynor, D. Hearne, K. Paxton, S. Irvine, M. Hostetter, D.

Freezing weather fails to dampen the spirit of the “Filly Farmers " at Casey Field. 121 Record Number Attend Key Club Convention Rated the most active club in their division, the ACHS Key Club was especially industrious as it initiated several unique programs this year. In addition to the customary projects of issuing football programs and assisting the Kiwan- is with preparations for the pancake supper, the Key Club sponsored their first annual dance. Picking a contemporary theme— " Age of Aquarius " — the boys worked diligently to create a psychedelic atmosphere. Two exciting basketball games (the Key Club vs. the Pep Club and the Alleghany faculty vs. the Covington faculty) were staged to boost the treasury and provide entertainment for the student body. The sale of 24,000 doughnuts financed the yearly delegation to the convention in Norfolk. Despite the innovations this year, the Key Club maintain- ed its tradition of promoting exceptional citizenship and character. Examining the 1969-70 Key Club budget are of- ficers Gary Childs, Tim Heironimus, Bill Siple, C.E. Andrews, and Robert McDowell. C.E. Andrews, president, leads fellow club members G. Brisendine, J.

Beginning with the solemn induction ceremony at Cranberry Memorial Chapel, the Senior Tri-Hi-Y served to instill a sense of worth within its members. Community projects such as the distribution of Thanksgiving baskets and Christmas caroling at Taylor ' s Nursing Home denoted the purpose of the Tri-Hi-Y. To instruct the student body as to acceptable dress for school and school functions, a fashion show was presented. As always, preparations for the Sweetheart Dance consumed much of the Club ' s energy as the girls made a frenzied effort to complete the details of decoration. Another of the focal points of the year was the Model General Assembly in Richmond. For the first time ever, Alleghany ' s bill was chosen for consideration by the Assembly. Delegates to M.G.A. were Anne Reyns and Chris Pierannunzi. Under the direction of Martha Stephenson and the supervision of Miss Mary Lifts Burton, the Senior Tri-Hi-Y completed a memorable year by receiving the Ace Award, symbol of quality and outstanding accomplishment. Considering possible activities for the upcoming year are Senior Tri-Hi-Y officers. Seated: A. Reyns, M. Stephenson, P. Hughes. Standing: J. St.Clair, J. Byer, and J.

Junior Tri-Hi-Y officers attended a workshop and officers ' training session at Covington High School. In a similar conference, a majority of the club traveled to Charlottesville for the purpose of electing district officers. On Christmas Eve, the girls celebrated the holiday with a family for whom they had provided food and gifts. Devoting a great deal of time and effort, Tri-Hi-Y members brought closer the real meaning of Christmas. Another project sponsored by the club was the fashioning of frivolous vegetable corsages for the Sadie Hawkins dance. Delegates to the Jr. Tri-Hi-Y camp in May were Theresa Lockard, Genie Bodell, Janet Miller, and Nancy Childs. Regular meetings, consisting of teen talks, films, and lectures by various speakers, developed adult attitudes. 125 Multilith Print Enhances Patriot Appearance Straightening up the files, editor Jan Shawver maintains an orderly newspaper room. Several outstanding advancements promoted recognition of the PATRIOT staff. In addition to the production of nine regular editions of the newspaper, the staff issued its special Senior Edition and the third volume of HOOFPRINTS. The staff progressed from mimeograph to multilith printing, and published the Senior Edition itself rather than having it done professionally. Staff members interviewed Mr. Hodnett, traveled to Roanoke to view a printer ' s establishment, and toured the office of the Covington VIRGINIAN. Trophies sponsored by the PATRIOT provided incentive for athletes and publicity for the staff; the " Players of the Month " were chosen by their respective coaches. Under the guidance of Mrs. Betty Clinedinst, and with technical advice from Mrs. Harriet Bush and Mr. Robert Loving, the PATRIOT staff served A.C.H.S. with efficiency. ■ 1 o f V J R. Chambers, P.

ALCOVA ' s indi- spensible photo- grapher, David Wal- lis, hurries to set up the Art Club pic- ture. Bringing to the attention of the student body the consequences of a changing decade, the ALCOVA staff revolutionized the appearance and the contents of the yearbook. Annual workers endeavored to point out the effects of the passage of time through appropriate pictures and phrases. Six ALCOVA sections— features, sports, organiza- tions, faculty, classes, and advertising worked in- dependently toward the completion of their respec- tive material. Decisions requiring the acceptance of the staff as a whole concerned theme, design, color, and dedicatee. Information kept confidential by the yearbook staff was finally revealed during the May assembly when the dedicatee. Boy of the Year, and Miss Alcova were announced. Without the understanding assistance of Mrs. Joyce Barber, the staff could never have succeeded in producing the unique 1970 ALCOVA. 128 Faculty section members L. Tolley, S. Tolley, and J.

Initiation week began this year ' s F.H.A. activities with a quick burst of energy as new members portrayed homemakers of the past and of various nationalities. After the newcomers were fully indoctrinated as Future Homemakers of America, the girls had a small celebration. Practicing their knowledge of home economics, F.H.A. members served at H.O. Canfield ' s Christmas Party, the Principals ' Dinner, and the Band and D.E. Banquets. National F.H.A. Week was heralded with posters and decorated bulletin boards. During the club ' s annual fashion show ' , the girls modeled garments made in home economics classes. Hours of planning, construction, and detailed decoration resulted in a lively Sadie Hawkins dance and a silvery, wintry Christmas Formal. In May, the Mother-Daughter Banquet and Installation of officers marked the end of the F.H.A. year. The 1969-70 F.H.A. proudly received, in recognition of its many activities, the award for the outstanding chapter in the district. F.H.A. officers P. Shifflett, S. Meadows, R. Clark, M. Shifflett, B.

Conventions And Tours Provide Rare Insights Actively occupied in the business department are F.B.L.A. officers Judy Kimberlin, Judy Simpson, Marlene Lockhart, Carol Lindsay, Amber Knick, Susan Craft, and Missy Johnson. Steering their activities toward career preparation, the Future Business Leaders of America have benefited by acquiring practical knowledge. Club tours were conducted at Dabney S. Lancaster Community College and National Business College. Alleghany ' s F.B.L.A. was represented at regional, state, and national conventions, and delegates attended Massenetta Spring ' s Leadership Conference Camp. At Thanksgiving, favors were donated to Taylor ' s, Hoffman ' s, and Paitsel ' s Nursing Homes. Another community project was the F.B.L.A. ' s contribution to a deserving family during the Christmas season. The club celebrated with a traditional C hristmas party. In addition to the customary bake sales, money-raising programs included the sale of large, variegated key chains. Illustrating the proper modes of dress for today ' s secretary, the girls staged a pleasant fashion show for the student body. The F.B.L.A. Banquet, held in conjunction with the F.H.A., closed a year of activity and expansion. Members of Future Business Leaders and the Future Homemakers of America enjoy a delicious meal at their joint banquet. 132 For Future Business Leaders Of America S A BEE IN TYPING YOU Dreama Tingler, Karen Averill, and Judy Griffith assist teachers in typing final exams.

Taking full advantage of the opportunity to perform and observe, the Future Teachers of America gain useful insight. Substitute teaching, a service to the faculty, exposes F.T.A. members to the difficulties of handling classes. Informative visits to Lancaster Community College and V.P.I. provided a chance to study various Cur- ricula and educational techniques. During a trip to Betsy Shougar clinic, the Future Teachers instructed and helped mentally retarded children; funds were collected for the clinic at Christmas time. As another of its community projects, the club created fanciful spring favors for hospital patients. Panel discussions concerning such topics as sex education in relation to teaching were conducted, with faculty members participating. In appreciation Nita Thompson and Julie Hammond, F.T.A. officers, gain valuable experi- of the dedication of the faculty, the F.T.A. provided ence for their prospective careers through substitute teaching. refreshments at a Teacher ' s Tea.

As preparation for careers in nursing, the girls toured Alleghany Memorial Hospital and the Univer- sity of Virginia School of Nursing. Attending an invitational tea at C O Hospital in Clifton Forge, members of the club discussed various aspects of medicine with the staff. Assisting the Covington Red Cross with the annual Bloodmobile provided the Future Nurses with the opportunity to observe medical techniques. As a climax for the year, a plan to supply Alleghany Memorial with candy stripers materialized. Not only did the girls develop compassion and deeper understanding; they were able to render valuable volunteer service.

Probably most instru- mental in helping the students achieve these goals was Julio Ibarra, honorary member, from Mexico City. A great asset to classes and the club, Julio instructed his American amigos in the lively art of pinata-breaking at the Christmas Fiesta. Taking on a Spanish theme— ' The Lonely Bull " — the colorful dance resembled a Mexican arena. Vivid streamers and the red and green flag of Mexico added an authentic flair. Contributing to the Spanish classes, the club purchased practice records and a filmstrip. Medals and certificates were provided by the club to recognize those who excell in Spanish. Carol Pierannunzi and her date Greg Paxton pause to admire the Mexican flag at the Spanish Club dance. Standing: C. Pierannunzi and M, Dressier. First row: B. Dodd, J. Farrar, S. Showalter, J.

President Jim Landis chats with officers Libby Barineau, Margaret Rooklin, and Carol Pierannunzi about the end-of-the-year picnic. Language organizations generally strive to create appreciation for an interest in foreign cultures. In this respect, the French Club had great success. Through documentary and travel films, as well as records, the members learned much about the French nation and people. In relating her experiences in French-speaking Haiti, Mrs. Bailey provided more graphic descriptions. Her account, presented to the club, proved stimulating as well as entertaining. Light-hearted moments centered around a Christmas Party and a final picnic at Humpback Bridge. Mrs. Nichols seems amused as Jimmy Landis stresses the need for a final bake sale. 137 Varsity Club Boys Sport New Red Blazers First row: R. Taliaferro, G. Brisendine, T. Maddy, J. Sizemore, C.

Eighth grade and Junior Varsity athletes eagerly anticipate the day wnen they will receive letters, the symbols of entrance into the Varsity Club and eligibility to wear the Columbia blue Alleghany jackets. This year, compli- ments of the Alleghany Athletic Association, lettermen and their coaches wore identical red blazers with Colt emblems on game days. Varsity athletes were rewarded at the close of the sports season with a sumptuous banquet. In addition to the letters and medals presented at the Athletic Awards assembly, sportsmanship and " best player " trophies were awarded at the banquet. Ending a remarkable year, the boys celebrated with their annual picnic at Douthat State Park. Following the arrival of the new Varsity jackets, Tim Heironimus and C. E.

Band adapted its music to include popular tunes such as " Hawaii Five-0, " " Gentle On My Mind, " and " Age of Aquarius. " Another added feature was the formation of a pom-pon girl corps. As always, a hectic parade schedule kept the band occupied. Special performances at the Shrine Parade in Roanoke and the Newcastle Christmas Parade were im- portant events, but the year ' s focal point centered around V.P.I. ' s " Band Day " celebrating one hundred years of college football. Two A.C.H.S. Band members, Steve Young and Wil- liam Van Lear, were selected to attend the District VI Anxiously awaiting their cue, band members prepare their music and concert at Martinsville High School, instruments for the spring concert. After an hour of daily practice, trumpeters care- fully pack up their instruments before leaving. Mr. Baber gives humorous advice to Mike Noel and Mary Bennett before a performance.

Head majorette Becky Simpson confers with Mrs. Armstrong, sponsor, about this year ' s complicated parade and pep rally schedule. Becky, Linda, Chris, Libby, Carol, Brenda, Theresa, Patricia— 8 smiling girls whose spirit never wavered. With out the enthusiasm and vitality of these majorettes, foot- ball half-time would undoubtedly have missed a portion of its traditional gaiety. Their animated performances proved enormously entertaining. Energetic routines, executed with ease and precision, provided enjoyable variety during football and basketball pep rallies. Certainly the lively zeal displayed by the majorettes inspired similar emotions among the fans. Beguiling crowds during the colorful Labor Day celebra- tion, the girls paraded down Main Street with a seemingly inexhaustible supply of energy. Participating in two Christ- mas parades, the majorettes added cheer to the holiday atmosphere. Probably the major event of the season was an invitation to perform with various schools during half-time at a V.P.I. football game. In preparation for exciting roles as A.C.H.S. majorettes, the girls attended an instructive camp designed to improve their techniques and skills. The camp was greatly successful, as a group of talented majorettes emerged. Vivacious majorettes entertain the student body with their spirited perform- ance at a pep rally. 144 Chess Club Improves Strategy, Concentration Observing Peggy Persinger and Kay Kelley in a chess match are Chess Club members William VanLear, William Reed, Lonnie Thompson, Rosemary Powell, and Marchita Nelson; Standing, Gordon Bostic, Robert Entsminger, Gary Hall, Bill Deacon, David Aman, Richard Entsminger, and Jimmy Landis. Tension, quiet excitement, and careful concentration characterize suspenseful chess matches. An extremely difficult game to learn, chess requires an unusual amount of practice and patience. Alleghany ' s Chess Club endeavors to promote a deeper understanding of the intricacies of the game. Individual members share their knowledge of special theories and techniques, as education is the most significant club activity. Matches are held to determine a player ' s capabilities. To obtain a higher standing, a challenger plays a three-game match with the member in the position immediately above his own. Through such challenges and the continual shifting of positions, the spirit of competition is kept alive. In addition to improving game skills, the Chess Club provides the opportunity for enjoyable entertainment. Club president William Van- Lear illustrates complicated chess moves as Mr. Williams, sponsor, and Gordon Bostic, Kay Kelley, and Bill Nicely, officers, appear amused. 145 KVG ' s Learn Fire-Prevention Techniques Front row: J.

Here at Alleghany, one organization distinguishes itself in that meetings are not held on a regular basis, dues are not paid, and officers are not elected. The K.V.G. boys constitute a service club designed to benefit the communi- ty in the event of a dreaded emergency-fire. As preparation for the special training expected of this group, a yearly field trip is planned. Assisted by forest rangers, first-year K.V.G. members gain practical knowl- edge in learning the proper methods of controlling fires. Newly-acquired skills and experience are inevitably put to crucial tests. In addition to serving Alleghany County, the Keep Virginia Green organization instills a sense of civic re- sponsibility within its members. Making a routine examination of the fire extinguisher ' s pressure are K.V.G. members Bill Dressier, Terry Platt, and Cary Reid. 146 Noteworthy Maintenance Proves Efficient BH — Mr. Osbourne ' s returning the snow plow to the garage signifies the arrival of spring. Frequently, the duties performed by the maintenance and cafeteria staffs go unnoticed. Devoting unobtrusive but valu- able services, this group has earned the appreciation of admin- istration and student body. Cleanliness and efficiency are the goals to which Mr. Osbourne, Mrs. Kitt, and the kitchen staff aspire. As chief custodian, Mr. Osbourne is responsible for temper- ature regulation, clean halls, and the appearance of the grounds. Mrs. Kitt ' s duties include maintaining spotless rest- rooms and teachers ' lounges. Constantly working to serve Alleghany effectively, these industrious people contribute enormously to the welfare of the students. As Mrs. Kitt cleans the girl ' s locker room, she performs one of her several different duties at Alleghany. Toward the end of third period the kitchen staff anticipates the arrival of eighth graders. c ) C D LU CO Enthusiastically Accepting Responsibilities Janice Marie Adkins Diane Charlene Andrews Norma Jean Angle Eloise Gayle Arrington Charlotte Mae Arthur Gene Edward Ayers Arnold Justice Bailey John David Ballard Anita Ann Bayne Carol Ann Belcher Deborah Sue Bell Donald Eugene Bennett Greg Malcolm Bennett Katra Diane Bennett Charles Timothy Bingler Charles Preston Bocook Robert Edward Bolden Sonnia Duane Bonsak Michael Lee Boone Norman Franklin Booze Deborah Lynn Bowers Gary Mason Bowers Patricia Marie Brackenridge David Timothy Bradberry Donna Gail Bradley Ronald Wayne Bradley Richard Gene Breeden George Mervin Broce Barbara Ellen Brown James Monroe Brown, Jr. Kevin Ray Brown Peggy Lou Brown William Thomas Bruffey, III Sharon June Brugh Theresa Jean Buchanan These eighth grade class officers Billie Carter, Presi- dent: Kay Owens, Vice President; Stephanie Nicely, Treasurer; and Max Miller, Secretary, take the quickest route down the stairs following a brief conference. Marked with awe and utter confusion, Alleghany ' s youngest class entered their first year of high school. Although for the first few weeks the upperclassmen and teachers had to guide a few lost students, the eighth graders soon became adjusted to the complex schedule of high school life. Restricting their activities did not keep the new students from aspiring in available extracurricular events. Such activities as cheerleading, sports, and various organizations strengthened the young pupils in mind as well as in body and prepared them for the emending years that lie ahead. As the eighth graders progressed through their first year, they realized they were faced with a much more serious challenge than the one they had faced in grade school. But, as the year progressed, the young students faced every new challenge with an energetic spirit, each one aspiring to reach his ultimate goal by attaining superior grades and hoping to gain the veneration of his classmates. This driving spirit gained much admiration from the eighth grade teachers as well as the new students ' peers. Overall, the first year of high school proved to be an exciting challenge, and instilled in the class of ' 74 a sense of anticipation for the coming years. 150 Eighth Graders Enter Strange New World

dominated by his three female counterparts, Brenda Howard, Vice-President; Yvonne Loan, Treasurer; and Patricia Nicely, Secretary; attempts to explain the importance of collecting freshman dues. Following an eighth grade year characterized by an aura of bewilderment and excitement, Alleghany ' s freshmen eagerly joined the academic and social routine of ACHS as they began the long climb to the coveted position of being called a Senior. They looked forward to the future years realizing that they were only beginning to gain a true insight into the many divergent worlds belonging to each of their classmates. As freshmen, doors— previously closed to them as eighth graders— opened. Various clubs extended their welcomes to those freshmen who were destined to become their future officers. Showing vehemence, freshmen became involved in the whirlwind of events representative of ACHS. Alleghany High became a prominent part of their lives as they began develop- ing into talented and responsible young people. Sixteen lovely ninth grade girls served for the Junior-Senior Prom, while many ninth grade boys participated in J.V. sports, gaining the all important experience needed in order to become future varsity stars. J.V. cheerleaders led their own pep rallies, as well as serving with the varsity squad during basketball season. The newly organized girls ' J.V. basketball team gave many fresh- men girls a chance to demonstrate their skill and reveal their ability. Though still not as confident as upperclassmen, freshmen became part of a four year kaliedoscope that appeared so enviable at the beginning of the year.

by the upperclassmen and respected by the under- classmen, sophomores found their third year at A.C.H.S. enjoy- able and different. Faced with the responsibility of finding new methods of raising money for a prom which was only one short year away, the class of 1972 elected the most capa ble officers possible. Anticipation of the future increased as the students delved into the courses they had chosen— whether college preparatory, general, or business. Sophomores struggled with usual tenth grade courses as well as typing and Algebra II. Taking full advantage of the opportunities offered them, the class of ' 72 strove to fill the role of advancing upperclassmen. Sophomores were introduced into the responsibilities which they knew they must accept and the privileges which they realized they must honor. Sophomores were free to join any club of their preference. The class of ' 72 was represented on the varsity baseball, basketball, and football teams as well as on the varsity cheering squad. Sophomores found they were accepted in general as they enjoyed their tenth grade year of excitement and found high school life to be rewarding. Nervous and unsure, freshmen Gratten Hepler and Don Dulaney appear before the student body as SCA candidates for the office of historian. 159 Sophomore Class Leads Life Of Action Virginia Dale Bess Gary Wayne Boerner Mariene Kay Bogar Marsha Suzette Bosserman Beverly Ann Bowyer Barbara Ann Brackenridge James Gordon Brackman Donna Jean Brown Homer Clemmer Byer James William Byer Ellen Irene Campbell Gary Osburn Campbell Michael Leo Carter David Eugene Charles Linda Sue Clark Mary Euna Clark Rodney Edward Adkins David Charles Aman Bobby Wayne Angle Nancy Carole Archie Dennis Leslie Armentrout Vickie Renee Armentrout Karen Suzanne Averill Donna Sue Ayers Cennie Sue Barrington Robin Marie Bartley Andrea Kathleen Basham Phyllis June Bates Edward Ervin Bennett Ronnie Lynn Bennett Basil Eugene Bryant Deborah Lynn Burch Beauford Miller Bush Joyce Marie Bush Bonnie Sue Byer David Lowry Byer Debra Melisa Byer Robert Lee Clark George Edward Clemons Bobby Eugene Cline William Andrew Conner Jerry Reid Curtis Claude William Deacon Rickie William Dillard Randolph Wayne Downey Gilmer Hill Dressier Sherry May Dressier Julian Robert Entsminger II Vickie Marie Farren Sue Carol Fischer Gary Alvin Fisher 160 Cooperative Spirit Brings Winning Results Michael Eugene Fisher Kevan Jeter Fitzgerald Sharon Anne Franson Barry Rexal Fridley Sandra Lee Fridley Martha Alice Frye Earl Foster Fuller, Jr. Susan Gail Goode Daryl William Greene Allen Lee Griffith Judy Gail Griffith Gary Douglas Gum James Madison Hall James Harold Hannah Gary Thomas Hoke Pamela Marie Hughes Barbara Sue Humphries Teddy Arthur Humphries, Jr. Ronnie Wesley Hunt Evonne Jeanette Irvine Brenda Althea Johnson Nancy Leigh Harrison William Eugene Haskins, Jr. Ronald Keith Hawse Kathleen LaVerne Haynes Richard Lee Helmintoller Kathy Darlene Hicks Glenn Lewis Higgins Eunice Loree Hoke Michael Stephen Johnson James Murrell Jones John Paul Jones, Jr. Michael Cleo Jones Deloris Ophelia Jordon Wanda Irene Kellison Kay Ellen Kelly Kenneth Matthew Kern Linda Elaine Kesterson Vicki Lynn Knighton Randall Brian Kranz Andrew Charles Kruse James Kevin Landis Jeffrey Zane Lemon Alvin Michael Linkswiler Linda Gaye Linkswiler David Lee Livesay Gloria Jean Loan Pamela Lynn Long Sandra Lee Loving Joyce Faye McCormick Larry Scott Maddy 161 As Tenth Graders Put Their Best Foot Forward Dennis Wayne Nicely Mary Catherine Nicely Randy Lee Nicely Kenneth Allen Osborne Drema Sue Paitsel Jerry Michael Paitsel Karen Louise Paitsel ShyrI Dianne Paitsel Eugene Madison Peters Rebecca Ann Peters Carol Ann Pierannunzi Rebecca Lynn Plymale Richard Carlton Poe III Steven Brody Posey Barbara Jean Potter Rosemary Lynn Powell Charles Joseph Marple Robert Wayne Marple Web Kelly Martin James Garland Maupin Roger Lee May Milton Collier Mays Carol Ann Meadows Shannon Lee Michie Larry Wayne Mines Carl Richard Montgomery Dorothy Louise Morgan Deborah Conner Morris Marchita Layne Nelson Chazy Jonathan Nicely Richard Eugene Pedigo Gary Allen Persinger Grover Lee Persinger Peggy Lynn Persinger Reba Melisa Persinger Ronald Eugene Persinger Steven Lewis Persinger Gary Taylor Price Pamela Christine Quarles George Lynnville Quinlan Brenda Sue Reid Ramona Faye Reid Michella Kay Reynolds Gary Wayne Robinson Elizabeth Kay Rooklin Andrew Steven Rowan James Ernest Salyers Larry Scott Schoppmey er Russel Lee Shaw Marilyn Virginia Shifflett Patricia Paige Showalter 162 To Attain New Heights And Fill Expectations Nancy Carol Simmons Jonathan Kent Simpson Frank James Sizer III Allita Karen Smith Beverly Dianne Smith Deborah Jean Smith Gary Neil Smith Leroy Bruce Smith Patrick Andrew Smith Roberta Lynn Smith Douglas Alan Snead Patricia Lane Sparks Elizabeth Diane Spellman Joy Louise Stanley Virginia Ann Thompson Dreama Lynn Tingler Rodney Darnell Tingler Darrell Lenwood Tucker Darrell Walton Tucker Patsy Jean T ucker Quentin Lee Tucker Eldrin Lane Watson Gary Wayne Webb Charles Allen Weber Joy Lynn White Carleton Lynn Williams Donald Henderson Williamson Mary Catherine Willis Pamela Joyce Wilson Vivian Jean Wilson William Edgar Withrow, Jr. Carol Jean Wolfe Patricia Annelle Wolfe Sally Ann Wright Robert Eugene Sweider Sharon Lynn Switzer Samuel Ray Thomas Russell Lawrence Thompson a Regina Lynn Tucker William Daniel Tucker Garland Douglas Unroe Stewart Lee Van Buren Charles Elmer Vass Carol Bruce Vess Samuel Leroy Walton Charles Craig Warwick 1 163 Student Body And Faculty Pay Tribute Sophomore class officers, Larry Maddy, treasurer; Pam Hughes, vice-president; Carol Pierannunzi, secretary; and Jim Landis, President, stop to check on the balance in their treasury. Alleghany ' s faculty, administra- tion, and student body would like to pay their respects to a friend and fellow student, Marvin Duane Persinger. Though it was Marvin ' s second year here at Alleghany, he acquired many friends, and those who knew him remember his easy-going man- ner. Marvin ' s teachers knew him as a helpful, interested young man. Members of the sophomore class as well as many of the student body will remember Marvin as one of their friends and will hold a spot in their hearts for Marvin. Many members of the the sopho- more class and other students as well will never forget Marvin ' s shocking death. Marvin lived a short life but that life was a good one and one of fulfillment. MARVIN DUANE PERSINGER October 22, 1953 — October 27, 1969 164 Capable Juniors With Motivation Libby Barineau, Glenys Cook, and Linda Riley found that extra study helps to produce good grades on their exams. Molly Swartz, Secretary; Mary Beth Bodell, President; Chuck Anthony, Vice-President; and Sally Showalter, Treasurer, pause for a moment to greet fellow classmates going down the staircase. With their foremost aim being the presentation of an august, majestic evening of excitement and splendor, the class of 1971 began working on the prom during their first week of school. Eleventh graders realized their cardinal goal was raising money through a wide variety of projects which they would attempt to undertake. The competent class officers appointed several committees, all of which strove to either bring in money or to create an evening characterized by an aura of resplendence. Members of the concession committee worked diligently to bring in profits. Candy, doughnuts, and soft drinks were sold at all extra-curricular indoor functions. The juniors sold class pins as another means of raising money. For the first time in the history of Alleghany the junior class presented a talent show instead of a play. This produc- tion was a tremendous success and provided lots of entertain- ment for the entire student body. The winner of the show was David Stratton and the Rhythm Wreckers, whose rendition of modern music was enjoyed by all. May crept upon the juniors without any real warning, and they found themselves pressed for time. All the actual plans for the prom were laid out, but the stupendous task of constructing and erecting the back-drops was yet to begin. At last, on the twenty second of May, after a hectic final day, " A Royal Knight " was presented to the seniors. An evening of true enchantment was enjoyed by all who were present. The juniors went home tired, but extremely happy over the success of their endeavors. Eleventh graders ended their junior year profoundly exalted at their achievements, and justifiably proud to proclaim that they would be seniors next year. Rob Littleton explains to the student body the importance of the new honor system. 165 Prove Themselves Dependable Joyce Marie Anderson Charles Douglas Anthony Henry Gilbert Baker Dianne Susan Barger Elizabeth Dodson Barineau Karen Elizabeth Bennett Mark Emerson Bennett Danny Ray Black Pamela Ellen Black Jean Carol Bocook Mary Elizabeth Bodell Nancy Lynn Boerner James Matthew Bolden Bonnie Jean Boone Gordon Ettly Bostic Wanda Jean Bowers Douglas Allan Broce Dixie Lynn Bruffey Stuart Smith Brugh David Preston Byer David Glen Byerly Richard Daryl Byers 166 Through Concessions — Sponsoring A Talent Show Lana Karen Caldwell Donna Marie Carroll Marilyn Carson Robert Polk Chambers Judy Dodd Childs Rita Kay Clark Delmas Keith Conner Glenys Darlene Cook Paula Gay Craft Susan Kay Craft Tommy Lewis Craft Phillip Andrew Curtis Wesley Alan Dew Deborah Lynn Dodd Donna Leigh Dodd Julia Ann Downey William Doyle Downey William Mackenson Dressier, Jr. David Stafford Dulaney Julie Anne Farrar Debra Kay Fore Gary Roscoe Garrett 167 1 1th Graders Presented The Seniors Harold Lee Gayhart Richard Paul George Terrie Lynn Gumm Samuel Drew Hagedon Gary Dell Hall Julia Ross Hammond Jess Johnathan Hand Dorothy Leah Hearne Nancy Mae Helmintoller Deborah Stewart Henson Karen Sue Hepler Linda Susan Hicks Carol Louise Humphries Brenda Victoria Hyler Darius Leroy Hylton Judy Ann Irvine Houston Lynn Johnson, Jr. Mary Melissa Johnson Sheldon Bruce Johnson Kyle Irvin Jones, Jr. Mark Warren Jones Maria Antionette Jordan 168 " A Royal Knight " — The Prom To Be Remembered Sharon Francis Kanney Beverly Faye Keaton David Ray Keaton Jane Faye Kern Gary Howard Kilian Patti Page Kitt Rolando Backman Kopak Stephen Harn Kruse Clyde Howard Landis Dennis Robert Lawler Earl Monroe Lemon, Jr. Jack Orville Lienhardt, Jr. Carol Elizabeth Lindsay Robert Clingan Littleton Cynthia Lou Lockard Robert Marshall Loving, III Robert Dale Lugar Elinor Jean Martin John Thomas McCaleb Mary Christina Mae McCombs Robert Oscar Mills, Jr. James Calvin Morris 169 With A Hectic Year Fading Into The Past Martha Sue Morris Patricia Pearl Morris Janie Lee Myers Ronald Lee Myers Adali Griffith Nicely Charles Edward Nicely Lucy Viola Nicely Randolph Lee Nicely Sandra Lee Nicely Steven Norman Nicely William Lloyd Nicely Daphne Denise Noel Rubin Edward Noel, Jr. Kenneth Brian Oyler Donalie Fay Paitsel Roy David Patterson Barbara Ellen Pearson Robert Steven Peery Charles Watson Persinger Donald Dwight Petty Robert Terry Platt Ronald Steven Plott 170 1 1th Graders Could Now Look To The Future Robert Avon Ray Celia Donovan Reynolds Anne T yier Reyns Linda Leigh Riley Angela Gail Roberts Timothy Bruce Rollison Lucille Jean Rose Nancy Ross Jackie Petunia Ruble Stephen Anthony Sales Beverly Jean Sartain Rebecca Anne Schooler Elizabeth Sue Scott Jeffrey Alan Scott Melvin Franklin Sellers John Raleigh Senter David Angu Shanks Patricia Ann Shifflett Sally Brown Showalter Stephen Eric Showalter Judith Ann Simpson Samuel Gene Sizemore 171 When Their Five Year Journey Would End Barbara Sue Slayton David Wayne Smith Edward Murray Smith Charles Christopher Spraggins Charles Wade Stayton Susan Denise Stovall Joy Lynn St. Clair Maude Rae Swartz Richard Lee Taliaferro Debra Ann Taylor Patsy Ann Terry James Edward Thrasher Steven Wayne Tucker Melody Anne Unroe John William Vest Debra Lee Via Gary Wayne Waddell Leo Conrad Walton, Jr. Michael Berkley Warwick Franklin Neil Watson Robert Wayne Watts Vicky Lou Watts Donna Catherine Wickline Susan Lynn Wilkerson Beverly Jean Williams Billy Lawson Williams, Jr. Mary Ann Williams Nancy Jean Wolfe John Robert Wood Jeanne Elaine Worley 172 As Eighth Graders We Were Boisterous Pat Sams and Gary Childs cheered at ball games.

Jackie Nicely shows off her ability to play football. 174 As Sophomores We Were Involved Kenny Higgins displays his new wardrobe. David Wallis wishes he weren ' t so involved. Gloria Byer astonished the audience with her self-made dress at a FHA fashion show. 175 As Juniors We Were Enthusiastic Mark Smith proved himself a great runner as he helped the track team on to many victories. Harvey Dobbins and Bill Siple, like Boy Scouts, were prepared to help Kenny Higgins out of a jam. Tracie Dickson made sure she got her point across to one of her teachers. 176 As Seniors We Were " Giddy " Kenny Higgins and Pat Sams are caught in the act of putting a " no dogs allowed " sign over the boys locker room door. Harvey Dobbins, C. W. Bocook, Cary Reid, Gary Childs, Curt Martin, and Ronnie Bradberry show their happiness of being seniors as they perform a dance for the SCA elections. 177 Stephenson Leads Seniors Into New Decade Linda Loan, head cheerleader, and trea- surer of the senior class, leads the stu- dents in a cheer at a pep rally. As a member of the track team, Vice-President Mark Smith watches the progress of his fellow teammates. Secretary, Becky Simpson records the minutes of an important class meeting. Having finally been recognized as seniors in September, 1969, 177 students looked toward the future months with eager anticipation. Realizing that their many years of hard work were drawing to a quick close, seniors looked forward to the future where their destiny lay. They also looked back upon all the happy and sometimes sad times they as a class had shared together. The term senior — title that all students had waited so long to identify with — fell upon the upcoming graduates with a mystifying blow. Twelfth graders exhibited talent and experience in the presentation of Bus Stop, the senior class play. The class of 1970 contributed much to the honor of ACHS through participation in sports, academic achievement, and distinctive social events. May was the most exciting month for seniors. The juniors honored the seniors with a spectacular prom on May twenty second. Later in the month announcements and caps and gowns arrived. The senior picnic, as well as the senior banquet, provided entertainment as well as a last chance to socialize with friends. With the arrival of exams, the seniors realized that their high school careers were almost over. Graduation was met with mixed emotions because many close friends would soon be going their own different ways and each senior realized that there were many fellow classmates whom they would never see again. On June 5, 1970, when the class of ' 70 became alumni, they were through, but they would be indebted to ACHS for five of the most important years of their lives.
