I ALCOVA VOLUME IX— 1972 ALLEGHANY COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL ROUTE 2, VALLEY RIDGE COVINGTON, VIRGINIA As We Enter Alleghany 2 Ne Begin To Acquire Knowledge . . . To Emerge Socially . . . As We Progress, We Take Giant Steps Toward Fulfilling Our Youthful Aspirations Today Is The First Day Of The Rest Of Our Lives 5 To some people " Joe Cool " is a fictional character created out of the genius of Charles Schultz, but to the students at Alleghany County High School, " Joe Cool " is alive and well in Room 101, If seen walking down the hall, this individual can be immediately identified by his own special walk and by the air of importance that seems to radiate from him. Characterized by the possession of a coolly confident charisma, Joseph H. Carpenter III is well known for his unmistakable " gravel voice " and his unfor- gettably dry sense of humor. Mr. Carpenter ' s senior government classes will not easily forget his classroom antics. Combining a jovial attitude with his teaching techniques, he maintains a lively atmosphere that encourages students to learn. Creating a stimulating atmosphere in which to present American ideals is not an easy task, but his attitude toward teaching allows Mr. Carpenter to educate his students with interesting lecture techniques and original approaches to old fundamentals. He retains a cooperative attitude with both students and faculty members and encourages each person to be an individual thinker and doer. Mr. Carpenter ' s coaching ability speaks for itself. He has been a great contributor to Alleghany ' s successful wrestling and baseball programs as indicated by the winning of the district championship in baseball for the past four years and by his coaching of two state champions in wrestling. Through his years of coaching these two sports, Mr. Carpenter has well displayed his winning spirit and desire to succeed. His voice can be heard regularly throughout Alleghany ' s football season over a local radio station as a sports ' commentator for ACHS gridiron games. Another activity of this well-rounded individual is the Key Club. Serving as sponsor, he exhibits a great deal of drive and patience in performing this demanding job. The yearbook staff enthusiastically endorses the dedica- tion of this 1972 ALCOVA to Mr. Joseph Carpenter with this statement— " He spreads himself thinly, but everything comes out smooth. " For " Joe Cool, " Everything 6 Comes Out Smooth 7 8 A C A D E M 9 Co O School Board Is Favorable to Students School Board members; Delbert Hepler, Bishop Pentz, Mrs. James Ginn, Frank Ham- mond III, Benjamin Letson, Mrs. Harry Bennett and Robert Burrowes. Burdensome and difficult tasks of governing the Alleghany County Schools were performed by the school board. Through its efficient and competent members, the school board again served the county well. They reviewed problems that occurred and gave solutions to these problems. The school board was a governing body which listened to each problem and worked for an effective solution. Seniors were exuberant when the school board readopted an optional last semester exam policy. This was only one of many rulings favorable for the students. Mr. Benjamin Letson once again served the county as superintendent of its schools. Mr. Letson showed his concern for the schools ' teachers and students by his many visits to the schools. Mr. C. M. Smith remained the county supervisor of instruction and could frequently be seen visiting the various schools and teachers and helping out wherever possible. Mr. Smith and Mr. Letson discuss language teaching techniques with Mrs. Sumner. 10 Mr. Cvizic Is Backbone of A. C.H.S. Administration Mr. Cvizic is hard at work preparing the school for the state evalu- ation in spring. Mr. Holbert confers with Mr. Cvizic about the activity bus schedule for the afternoon. As principal of A.C.H.S., Mr. Cvizic exercised firm authority in executing his duties. As usual he was a friend to everyone who behaved according to school regulations. To those who did not obey the regulations he became a forbidding image of authority. Because he always took a personal interest in the students ' well being, they could rely on Mr. Cvizic for advice or guidance whenever needed. Mr. Cvizic and Mrs. McCaleb chat as Mr. Cvizic sets up his daily work schedule. Mr. Ousan S. Cvizic Mr. Cvizic is caught in a relaxed mood as he talks to an office worker, Kathy Hicks. 11 Mr. Walker Establishes Himself As " Mr. Coo!” of Alleghany Mr. Walker ' s phone is kept busy as he tends to school business. Mr. Charles F. Walker During the past year Mr. Charles F. Walker ' s talents and time were divided by the many responsibilities of being assistant principal, head basketball coach, and school co- ordinator. His duties as assistant principal were capably performed, and having acquired the reputation of being a " cool guy " , Mr. Walker earned the friendship of the stu- dents. Each student knew that Mr. Walker could and would handle each problem that needed his attention, even though the student might be the problem. As school co-ordinator, Mr. Walker arranged non-con- flicting schedules for the clubs ' activities, such as bake sales, dances, and picnics. That ability to arrange non-conflicting schedules pleased the clubs thoroughly. " Practice, practice, practice " was his motto for the bas- ketball team as he demanded hard work and perfection from each player. Although practicing hard, the team en- countered an early season losing streak which was unshak- able throughout the season. Combining the qualities of firmness and joviality, Mr. Walker proved to be a great asset to the school. Jim Landis waits patiently as Mr. Walker writes him an absentee slip. Mr. Higginbotham is amused by Mr. Walker ' s inability to tie a necktie. 12 Mr. Holbert Moves Alleghany Forward Mr. Holbert smiles after reading an enlightening letter. SCA president, Jim Landis, seeks advice from Mr. Holbert. Alleghany was inspired again by the presence of Mr. Charles Holbert among the administration and faculty. Mr. Holbert served the school as athletic director, transportation director, and science teacher. Although his duties were many and time consuming, they were carried out competently. The athletes and club members were once again indebted to Mr. Holbert for his organizing of activity bus schedules, which provided transportation home after school and his assistance in decorating the gym for various dances. Mr. Holbert ' s biology students were entranced by his knowledge of nature as they became involved in learning about " Mother Nature " and her children. 13 Competent Office Promotes SpiritAtA.C.H.S. Mrs. Sheets is hard at work preparing to type transcripts for college-bound seniors. Mrs. Betty Sheets Striving to keep the office and school free from con- fusion, Mrs. McCaleb, Mrs. Snead, and Mrs. Sheets, along with help from the student office staff, tried to establish some structure in the school day. Along with their secretarial responsibilities, Mrs. Mc- Caleb and Mrs. Snead wrote tardy excuses, talked with students about their achievements and failures, sold school supplies and tickets in the bookstore, while Mrs. Sheets served mainly in the capacity of secretary for the guidance department. The secretaries typified the hard-working faculty of A.C.H.S. through their efficient management of school af- fairs. 14 Guidance Department Takes On New Look Mrs. Enza Reynolds Better equipment and increased office space highlighted the guidance department this year. With the increased space, each counselor had his own room where he could discuss problems privately with a student. Additional new equipment proved very helpful to the students, especially for juniors and seniors seeking college information or students seeking job information. As a special service to the students, Mrs. Reynolds served as senior counselor while Mrs. Bush and Mr. Barton shared the responsibilities of the underclassmen. Earl Fuller seeks help from Mrs. Reynolds in completing his college applications. Mrs. Bush and Mr. Barton are caught " taking a break " from their schedule. 15 Students Gain Confidence And Self-Expression Miss Mary Litts Burton Miss Earlene Horn Mrs. Joyce Barber Miss Burton smiles at the class antics of Mike Minger and Reggie Lemon. Mrs. Jackie Anderson Mrs. Elizabeth Shelor Mrs. Betty Clinedinst Miss Barbara Mann ] Miss Margie Clark Mrs. Deena Barron 16 Through Group Discussions And Creative Writings Randy Whitehead seems amused at the careless mistake Miss Mann finds in his ho mework. Students are in deep thought about an assignment as Mrs. Clinedinst tries to assist them. Reflecting an informal atmosphere, Mrs. Shelor lectures to her 9th grade English students. Mrs. Barron ' s students deliberate long and hard on the test they are taking. Working diligently, the English de- partment at ACHS emphasized the im- portance of grammar, literature, and self-expression. Being interested in stu- dent desires, the English department conducted a survey of students in grades 10 and 11 to see how many were inter- ested in taking elective English classes. Grammar and literature were only two of the areas pursued during the year. The students also became involved in group discussions, debates, plays, and speeches. Through these various activ- ities the students learned to express in- dividual opinions and respect the opinions of others. They learned that there was room in the world for every- one ' s opinion. 17 " Square " -minded A .C.H.S. Students Are Mr. Dunn takes a break from his labors as a teacher. Mr. Lee Dunn Mrs. Alice Dills Mrs. Madison maintains the attention of her students on the math lesson at hand. Lines, planes, circles, letters, numbers, and various other symbols confronted the students enrolled in math classes. The variety of elements in math sur- prised the students and helped to make the math courses very intriguing, and, at times, confusing. Even though at times confusing, the math courses helped prepare students for any mathematical encounter in their future, whether in college or on the job. Each student was required to take at least two math courses during his high school years. This re- quirement enabled all students to have some type of math background. Miss Body prepares to answer a student ' s inquiry on a complicated Math 8 problem. 18 " Rounded " Into Full-fledged Mathematicians Miss Carol Larkin Mrs. Ann Madison Mr. John Lombardo Mr. Rhea amuses his Algebra I students with one of his many humorous jokes. While the students are working problems on the board, Mrs. Dills glances at the answers. 19 A TOMS, BIG DIPPER, AND CHROMOSOMES BEWILDER SCIENTISTS OF C. H. S. Mrs. Barker smilingly relaxes while her students begin their home- work assignment. After returning from a field trip, some of Mr. Newberry ' s students get a refreshing drink of water. Many everyday, taken-for-granted items depend upon very intricate scientific procedures. These procedures were introduced to Alleghany ' s students by the science depart- ment. Concepts concerning life in man, animals, and plants were taught by the science teachers. Each student became involved in learning how the life cycle continues. Again this year, the students were very concerned with ecology, especially in the area of pollution. They became involved in pollution problem solving, and were encouraged by their teachers to take action against pollution. Being required to take three science courses for college prep and two for general classes, each student became familiar with scientific relationships. They learned many facts that pertained to their everyday life, plus facts about items not usually associated with their lives. Mrs. Flo Armstrong Mr. Judge Newberry 20 Reggie Lemon patiently waits for Mr. Merica ' s " silly " answer to a " stupid " question. Mrs. Armstrong takes a moment from her lecture to point out the answer to Melissa Hostetter ' s question. Mrs. Bess Barker Mr. Fred Merica Mrs. Humbert shows her students how to adjust a microscope to the proper perspective for examining a paramecium. Mrs. Mary Humbert 21 Students Of Alleghany Develop A wareness Mr. Harold Carter Mr. Edward O ' Rourke Mrs. Janice McClintic Mr. Wesley Reed Mrs. McClintic seems amused as she tries to explain the political set-up of the U.S. to her civics class. Mr. James D. Williams Miss Jo Ann Bogan Mr. Williams is hard at work averaging grades as he pauses to answer a question for Mr. Joseph Carpenter Kit Taylor. 22 Of The World Around Them In Social Studies " What! " exclaims Miss Bogan as she is momentarily distracted from her 6th period social studies class. Developing the students into citizens was the aim of the social studies department. The department excelled in making social studies " come alive " for the students at A.C.H.S. The courses began in the eighth with the establishment of the U.S. govern- ment. In between, studies of the world were presented in the form of world history, world geography, and civics. From their teachers each student learned the importance of studying the past of both the U.S. and the world. They also learned that sharing interests in the world with others could be rewarding. Up-to-date facts were presented for discussion throughout the year; therefore the students became knowledge- able of current events. Mr. O ' Rourke relaxes as his world goegraphy students com- plete an assignment. Rusty Wint looks on as Mr. Reed fills out a form for him. 23 Activities Highlight Foreign Languages Many new ideas and facts were perceived by students taking a foreign language course. The language department taught the students many different and interesting items and, as a result, triggered a greater interest in taking a foreign language. To highlight the year, each foreign language group engaged in an activity pertaining to their respective language. For instance, the Latin students attended a Latin convention, and the French students ate French food at the Gourmet Restaurant. Mrs. Sumner takes a restful minute between classes to check her lesson plan book. Mrs. Sumner is always willing to help her students by answering their questions. By lecturing. Miss May presents many facts about the Romans. 24 An Students " Do Their Own Thing " Mrs. Bonnie Hodges Mrs. Hodges performs the awesome task of cleaning up at the end of the day. Mrs. Hodges seems to enjoy getting down to the " nitty gritty " in art with her students. Concentration, as these art students have learned, is an important factor in obtaining good results. Dreams and desires became real through expression in art work. Students could express their innermost thoughts by portraying them in some artistic manner. The art department stressed the individuality of each student ' s work. Each person " did his own thing " when he endeavored to be artistic. Many new and interesting crafts were taught this year. Students became fatniliar with leather crafts and wax moldings. Each new craft that was introduced helped the students to realize the importance of working with their hands. Sally Ann Wright and Kenny Gunther enjoy preparing art work for the annual art show. 25 Phys. Ed. Helps Students To Develop Minds Girls in phys. ed. find that playing basketball is not a " boys only " sport. Mr. Gary Rice Miss Jo Ann Carter Mr. J. Edward Teters Miss Sybil Hoover Mr. Teters watches over his 6th period students as they take a test. Playing basketball is a source of exercise and enjoyment for boys in physical education. 26 Co-ordination, And A Sense Of Fair Play Girls going out for eighth grade cheerleader practice during P.E. class. Students earnestly take notes while Miss Hoover lectures them on important first-aid procedures. Students look upward, searching for the volleyball that seems to have gotten lost. Activity period on Fridays provides a time to engage in many different sports. Energy, stamina, and intellectual capabilities were all prerequisites for students enrolled in physical education. Various activities requiring these characteristics were part of the P.E. program during the past year. Besides the regular team sports, the students were taught less energetic games such as ping pong. Although many games were learned, students became familiar with the importance of proper exercise. The games and exercises taught the students co-ordination and a sense of fair play. Classroom instruction was a very important part of the program. Students were taught a number of helpful and basic facts concerning physical health, drugs, first-aid, and driving. The department emphasized the learning of vital information about problems that may develop during a student ' s lifetime. 27 Girls Take An Invaluable Step For The Future Every girl at ACHS has the opportunity to become familiar with the elements of competence in a home. She may take advantage of this opportunity by enrolling in a home economics course. This year the home economics department taught girls how to cook, sew, plan budgets, and care for themselves. Also, Mrs. Knapp and Mrs. Perdue was to teach their students the many important factors in maintaining a comfortable, organized home. As always, the girl who took a home economics course, took a step forward in whatever direction she desired. Mrs. Vella Knapp Mrs. Maria Perdue As a service to the school, Mrs. Perdue repairs costumes to be used in various plays. Mrs. Knapp and her students seem intensely interested in a problem concerning a dress pattern. " Oh no, I ' ve made a mistake, " wails June Loan as Gail Minter listens to her problem. 28 Deftness Proves Essential In Industrial Arts Eddie Clemons prepares to sand the sides of a table in preparation for the musical " Hello Dolly. " Students learn many valuable skills in shop which are useful at home and on the job. Learning the “tricks of the trade " was the goal for the students in Industrial Arts. They were taught the necessary techniques needed to perform various skills in I ndustrial Arts. Those enrolled in Wood Shop learned how to make lamps, gun racks, magazine racks, and various articles of wood. Those taking Metal Shop were taught how to weld metals, and the safety procedures that should be followed while welding. Those who weren ' t in wood or metal shop took mechanical drawing. They learned how to make perspective drawings, how to use a T-square, and how to draw orthographic projections. At the end of the year, the Industrial Arts department discovered that it had trained a good number of skilled students. Even those without natural industrial instincts learned valuable skills. 29 Students Further Knowledge Of Business World Under the supervision of Mrs. Swartz, Typing II students work diligently to finish production jobs. Mrs. Maude Rae Swartz Miss Nora O ' Farrell Mrs. Doris Jamison Students with a keen mind for business sought the advice of Mrs. Swartz, Mrs. Jamison, and Miss O ' Farrell in furthering their knowledge of the business world. The business courses prepared the students for the climbing of the business ladder of success. Business courses were not limited only to those interested in a business career, but were open to all students with varying interests. All types of interesting courses prepared the students for college, for jobs, or for practical purposes. Mrs. Jamison teases Mike Linkswiler about a careless mistake made on his office practice sheet. 30 Library Proves To Be A Valuable Asset Undoubtedly, the library has proved to be a most valuable asset to the students. Without its competent staff and availability of books, the students of ACHS would be lost. Between Miss Wolfe and her two assistants, help was available to all students requesting it. In most cases, students found all the materials necessary for their project. With an air of superiority about her. Miss Wolfe surveys her " domain. " Miss Mary Helen Wolfe Mrs. Mary Stinnett Miss Sarah Peters Filing cards is one of the many time-consuming tasks of the library assistants. 31 Choir And Psychology Classes Work Toward Perfection Mr. Farrar aids his psychology students in searching for the right occupation. For the past three years, Mr. T.F.D. Farrar has divided his talents between his choir and psychology classes. Hard work, practice, and patience were required for the student who endeavored to sing with the choir. Each performance was splendid because each student “puts his heart” into his voice. Along with the Christmas and spring concerts, the choir presented a variety of other appearances in the community one of which was at the " Crusade for Christ. " Mr. Farrar ' s psychology students became involved with themselves and others as the year progressed. They encountered many new and intriguing experiences which spurred them into further investigation. Each student became aware of the confusing problems that occur in the behavior of mankind and the forces behind these problems. Mr. Farrar directs the choir at the " Crusade for Christ " concert held at Curfman Hall. 32 Enthusiastic Band Members Encourage School Spirit i Displaying new dance steps the band performs at halftime during the Altavista game. Led by Mr. Leonard Baber, the band added dance steps and routines to their performances this year. These performances ! enlivened the football halftime shows and thrilled the crowds along the parade route at Covington during the Labor Day i parade. For the first time, Alleghany had a drum majorette assisting the drum major in the duties of leading the band. The drum majorette assisting Ricky Montgomery was Sharon Ward. Through the combined efforts of those two people, individual routines were developed. With unlimited enthusiasm and spirit, the band stimulated the student body and helped to make the students proud of i A.C.H.S. Fans stand respectfully as the band plays the national Ricky Montgomery and Sharon Ward demonstrate their marching abilities during anthem. halftime activities. 33 Smith And Duff Teach Discipline To Students Guided by Mr. Richard Duff, students in the Distributive Education program learned the " do ' s” and the " don ' ts " in applying for a job, legal aspects of shop-lifting and getting along with employers and fellow employees. This instruction helped prepare students for job-hunting and for keeping a job once it has been procured. Gail Tucker and Vickie Farren listen intently to Mr. Duff as Bruce Smith leafs through his book for an answer. Mr. Richard Duff Mr. Duff glances at his notes while explaining shop-lifting to his Study routine of the students is broken by an announcement D.E. students, from the office. Study hall is a scene of confusion until the tardy bell rings. Under the " eagle eye " of Mrs. Jean Smith, students were once again benefited by the quiet atmosphere of study hall. With the new cafeteria addition, students were able to find more room for working and studying. After some controversy concerning the pop room, students were allowed the privilege of drinking pop in study hall under the strict supervision of Mrs. Smith. Mrs. Jean Smith 34 Jonas And Craft Teach Students Safe Driving Mr. Wendell Craft As Alleghany grew larger the Driver ' s Education de- partment found it necessary to add a new member in the form of Mr. Wendell Craft. Together with Mr. William Jonas the two combined to teach students at A.C.H.S. the fun- damentals and techniques of safe driving. The year started out shakily for Mr. Craft as he was involved in two acci- dents in the new driver ' s ed. car. Dual efforts by Mr. Jonas and Mr. Craft paid off in safe and experienced drivers on the highways of Alleghany County. Mr. William Jonas Mr. Jonas seems amused as Kathy Smith and Gail Dunford discover what the trunk of a car looks like. Mr. Craft fastens his seat belt as Pat Bennett asks, " Do I have to turn the key? " 35 T eachers A re No t AH Perfection And A uthority " What ' s the matter?, Mrs. Sumner. Tiene el gato su lengue? " " Watch out! Mr. Farrar. Bad things come in brown envelopes. " " Just think of all those narrow misses in the driver ' s ed. car. Coach. You won ' t feel a thing. " Mrs. Armstrong are you keeping Mr. Farrar out of class? 36 Some Prove To Be As Human As Students! " That trout was this long!, " exclaims Mr. Duff to a spellbound Mr. Higginbotham and a somewhat bored Mr. Newberry. " Fly the friendly skies of United with Mr. Baber. " " Won ' t that ' stupid ' checkbook balance, Mr. Holbert? " Mr. Williams jokingly goes along with one of Mr. Duff ' s Bath Countian tales. 37 Faculty Directory Anderson, Jacqueline, Milligan College, B.S., English, Sponsor of Junior Tri-Hi-Y.

Seniors Donna Ayers and Linda Kesterson try to arouse the crowd ' s spirit before a big game. Head cheerleader Linda Kesterson presents the Farmer ' s Day award to Gaye Lynn Webb. Coach Jonas comments on an upcoming game during a pep rally. 42 Sherry Burgandine, Pam Quarles, and Brenda Howard add zest to a pep rally by presenting a comical skit. Suzie Spraggins looks mortified at the thought of not being a cheerleader. Anticipating a victory, Nancy Childs, Karen Carr, and Suzie Spraggins display their exhilaration. Vivacious Joyce McCormick helps to boost the spirit of the fans during a football game. Even though some games were very disappointing, the Varsity cheerleaders of 1972 kept their exceptional spirit throughout the year. If the guys failed to get that touchdown or that basket, the Squad cheered enthusiastically. In addition to boosting the morale of the Colt athletes, they helped A.C.H.S. win the Blue Ridge District Sportsmanship Trophy for football. This group of cheer- leaders, led by Linda Kesterson, certainly helped to arouse the student body ' s and the athletes ' pride for their school. 43 Cheerleaders Possess Undying Spirit Hoping for a victory, Kathy Newcomb and Kristie Poe cheer excitedly. Always exhibiting much en- thusiasm and pep, the J.V. cheer- leaders, headed by Stephanie Nicely, loyally supported their teams. Behind the players when they were victorious, these cheer- leaders also cheered just as faith- fully when the team was losing. These girls put in much practice and hard work which justified the winning of several blue ribbons at cheerleading camp. Jane Lawler exuberantly leads the Colt fans in a cheer. Front row: Terry Whitehead. Debbie Stogdale. Captain Stephanie Nicely, Kathy Newcomb. Kristie Poe. Back row: Jane Lawler. Grace Ray 44 Eighth Graders Spark Team ' s Morale Julie Potter, Jill Lienhardt, Lori Zimmerman, Becky McCormick, Becky Davis, Kathy Bodell, Karen Newcomb. Kathy Bodell does her part in welcoming a visiting team. Karen Newcomb and Julie Potter do a rhythmic chant before a big game. Representing their team and school well, the eighth grade cheerleaders aroused much spirit in the players and spectators. Although they cheered only for basketball and wrestling, they also backed the other teams in the school. These cheerleaders have just begun supporting the teams at Alle- ghany and will be a big help in future years. 45 Short On Experience Long On Desire Marks Colts ' Season For a team that was picked to be sixth in the district, the Colts showed a lot of hustle and desire this year, turning in a 5-4-1 rec- ord. They placed an unexpected third in the district. Starting the season with a defensive bat- tle, the Colts played to a scoreless deadlock with Glenvar. Then after losing to powerful Greenbrier East, the Colts scored their first points of the season in a big 12-7 victory over Altavista.

Good team spirit and some tremendous hustle helped 1971 ' s J.V. team to a prosperous season. The defense proved to be the key factor in the team ' s success, especially in the 12-0 win over Clifton Forge in the season opener.

Under the enthusiastic guidance of Coach Wendell Craft, the 8th grade football team of 1971 proved to be one of the best 8th grade teams ever at A.C.H.S. Probably the highlight of the season was the victory over Princeton, a previously undefeated team coached by the younger brother of A.C.H.S. ' s head coach Mr. Jonas. Coach Craft cited Steve Sizemore, Jon Bostic, Reginald Craft and David Noel as the offensive standouts while Charles Kincaid was the defensive mainstay.

At the beginning of Cross Country season here at Alle- ghany, Coach Eddie Rhea was afraid that the school would have to do without their harriers for once, for only four boys turned out for practice. Within another week the Cross Country team boasted twelve runners, from grades nine through twelve. Gary Robinson for the third year led the team in scoring, winning most of the regular season meets. Next year ' s team will sorely miss the services of seniors Gary Robinson, Andrew Kruse, Pat Smith, Charlie Weber, and Carl Montgomery, but the returnees for 1972, Merv Broce, Max Miller, John May, ' Wayne Botkins, Chuck Swartz, Michael Crone, Steve Minter and Rusty Vint, should continue the winning tradition of the Colt cross country team. course.

Even though the girls ' Varsity basket- ball team won only 2 games against 6 losses, they set a fortitudinous example that all teams at A.C.H.S. should follow. Even while losing, the girls scrapped back, although many times it was in vain. Julia Paitsel, a rising sophomore was the team ' s leading scorer, with an 8.9 per game av- erage. Sarah Van Lear and Becky Downey each scored 43 points. It has been said that a team gets better with experience, and this may well be true since two of the leading scorers will be returning to lead their team to the Tri-County Cham- pionship. A.C.H.S.

The most exciting game of the season was a double-overtime game against Clifton Forge, with the Colts pulling through with a 59-53 victory. David Noel scored a big 28 points in this game. There were also some very disappointing games which Coach Barton said the team gave away. But he also added that this group of players have a tre- mendous amount of potential for thier later years in basketball. A.C.H.S.

This year the Colts had some fine players, but they never seemed to be able to get it all together. Despite the disappointing record, the players did put in several good games, with Marshall Blakey setting a new Colt rebounding record with 33 rebounds in one game. Larry Schoppmeyer also put in some good shooting for the Colts. Several players on the team, however, showed much prom- ise for their future years in basketball.

As for re- bounds, the little Colts were led by Cleveland Carroll, Jeff Elbon, and Dan Thurston. This year ' s junior varsity basketball team certainly will be remembered for a long while for their aggressive and exciting style of play. 6 1 Against Many Tough Opponents Kneeling: Coach Williams, B.

The Colts were runners-up in the Blue Ridge District and the Region III tournament and the team also produced two state champions, Mike Linkswiler in the 145 pound class and George Quinlan in the heavyweight class.

Through the winter months — each and every year — the Colt Indoor track team is one of the hardest working, yet least recognized teams in the school. Led by Captains Gary Robinson, Daryl Greene, and Joey Clark, The Colts showed excellent enthusiasm. The Colts had a fine season although they had a rough schedule. They won the Blue Ridge District Indoor Championship for their second year in a row. Gary Robinson was the big winner for the Colts, placing first in the 880 yard dash and the Mile Run. Other district champions include Mike Bradley, Carl Montgomery, Richie Poe, and Daryl Greene. Coach Eddie Rhea cited Gary Robinson, Nick Nickell, and Richie Poe as being outstanding in leadership and team spirit. All in all, the Colt Indoor thinclads experienced one of their best seasons in their history. Captain, Gary Robinson, attains another of his long line of Blue Ridge District victories. 66 J.V.

Colt baseball teams seem to have a knack for winning district baseball titles. The varsity baseball team of 1972 ended the regular season with a near perfect 12-1 record. This record was the result of some outstanding pitching and hitting by all members of the team. After doing so well in the regular season, the Colts were disappointed in the tournaments because of a loss to Covington, 2-0, whom they had beaten twice in previous games. But once again, the Colts showed their ability to win game after game in baseball.

Although posting a disappointing 2-5 regular season record, the Colt outdoor track team made some tremendous accomplishments during the season. Seven school records were broken on the drive toward a second place finish in the Blue Ridge District. The Sprint Medley Relay team broke the old record by seven seconds with a time of 3:49.1 seconds. The team consisted of Carl Montgomery, Joey Clark, Rusty Vint, and Gary Robinson.

Due to the cancellation of the game. Miss Donna Ayers was crowned at the dance. Also a first, there were two former A.C.H.S. Homecoming Queens present at the celebration. As usual Miss Jo Ann Bogan was the capable director of the ceremonies, and the music for the dancewas provided by the steadfast rhythm of the " Stonehenge. " Three of the lovely candidates chosen for Homecoming Queen are Carol Pierannun zi, Elizabeth Rooklin.and Linda Kesterson. 79 Sprench Club Presents The " Rio Riviera " Due to a " joint” effort, the Sprench Club Dance was extra special this year. The newly formed Sprench Club (that ' s Spanish and French combined) carried on in grand tradi- tion. The new French culture was a welcome addition, because the theme for the dance was " The Rio Riviera, " and it was a smash. The music for the dance was provided by the " Stonehenge " and those language lovers Mrs. Sumner and Mrs. Nichols received corsages for their efforts on behalf of the club.

At the head of this annual fiasco was the wild and wooly F.H.A. bunch. Appearing at this dance were the usual “Lil ' Abner " and “Daisie Mae " types, and the entertainment consisted of stirring hymns aimed at the soul of the lonely puipwood cutter, (along with some hard rock thrown in on the side). Appropriately the music for the 1972 dance was supplied by “The Liberation. " 81 Santa ' s Gift Arrives In The Form Of Santa ' s workshop (actually the good old A.C.H.S. gym in disguise) was the perfect place for the 1971 Christmas Formal. Santa ' s " package " was delivered to the stu- dents of A.C.H.S. care of the S.C.A., and when opened was found to contain every- thing everyone wanted. Santa was present to lead the celebration, and brought with him a new band from Waynesboro called " The Rotations. " Unique decorations and the in- clusion of the eighth grade class made the dance one of the most unforgettable in A.C.H.S. history.

The theme " Love American Style " was personified by the decorations and the centerpiece which helped to add to the excitement of the evening. The " wonderous love promoter " and his assistants were able to obtain the musical services of " The R.B. ' s, " and during the dance Larry Schoppmeyer and Nancy Harrison were crowned King and Queen respectively. The expressions on the faces of the underclassmen reflect the excitement of the dance. 85 Key Club Revitalizes The candidates running for the title of " 1972 Key Club Sweetheart Queen " and their escorts are: Mike Bradley, Patricia Nicely, Tommy Hall, Pat Bennett, Don Dulaney, Margaret Rooklin, Butch Simpson, Brenda Howard, Gary Dilley, and Cindy Armentrout. Members of the Key Club strained their imaginations to the limit and came up with a great idea for their annual " Sweetheart Dance. " The time was the late eighteen hundreds, the place— " The Wild Wild West, " and the plot was romance. The A.C.H.S. gym was done over in early " saloon " (completely with bar and wagon wheel chandelier). Along the walls were " All right, which one of you guys screamed ' indians ' . " paintings of cowboys, chorus girls, wanted posters, guns, and other fancies of a bygone era. Also, with this " shoot- ' em-up " air of a " spaghetti western " was, of course, a queen, Margaret Rooklin, and her escort, Don Dulaney, along with a court to see that everything went smoothly. To add to this restless mood, the barroom melodies were " rounded up " by the Stonehenge. Couples sway to the lilting rhythms of the " Stonehenge. " 86 " Cowboys And Indians " Sweetheart Queen, Margaret Rooklin, and her escort, Don Dulaney, enjoy the Queen ' s Dance. A.C.H.S. students " carry the beat " and " put it on " in the Wild Wild West. 87 Senior Class Of 1972 Presents Everyone waits impatiently as the heirs of Cedric Russell gather around to hear Roger Masters read the will. " Any Number Can Die " — Although this line sounds like the gag bit in a " Raid " commercial, it is in all actuality the title of the 1972 Senior class play. The play itself could not have missed being a success, being made up of a fantastic cast, and directed by that master of dramatic devices, Mr. Richard C. Duff. Of course, there were some outstanding faculty advisors and a great stage crew. (The stars of which were " Owl Hoot " Salyers, " Thunderball " Clemons, and " Stairs " Kranz). Set in the late 1920 ' s on a stormy island, the play naturally contained a will, a vast fortune, and a few unfortunate murders. Everything " rotten " was perpetrated by a robed figure who was captured by the wily detectives in the end. " Any Number Can Die " related to its audience all the comedy and mystery it was intended to, and congratulations were due to all who were involved. 88 The First Late, Late Movie Smiling Sally VanViller has the " make " put on her by Carter Forstman. Hannibal Hix stands back helplessly as Celia Lathrop is exterminated by the robed figure. The guests at the lonely mansion cringe in horror as the rivals for Sally VanViller ' s affection descend to fisticuffs. 89 Without Commercials Chuck Judy Zenia Roger Masters Celia Lathrop T. J.

Zenia faints and Hannibal Hix and Ernestine Wintergreen stand and gaze in horror as the hidden panel swings back to reveal Edgar ' s body. 90 Long Hours Of Rehearsal, Mr. Ted Farrar and the A.C.H.S. choir came through again in 1972. Starting with only three bottle caps, a marble, and some slightly used tonsils, they managed to stage a great presentation of the hit musical— " Hello Dolly. " The cast learned at the start that Mr. Farrar is quite a demanding director, and that rehearsals would be long and hard. They also learned that their director is also a great manager and coordinator. Although the task seemed impossible, everyone associated with the production put forth his best effort. As a result, when the final curtain came down the audience ' s reaction proved that the play was a hit. Dolly makes her grand entrance as she returns home to " Harmonia Gardens. " [ While waiting for the train from Yonkers, Dolly and her friends sing about getting dressed up in their " Sunday Clothes. " Dolly begins early to make " arrangements " in her matchmaking way. 91 Planning, And Intricate Stage Preparation Mr. Vandergelder seems upset over missing his date as Dolly and the other women try to hide Cornileous and Barnaby. Helping the make the play a success is the hard working, energetic stage crew. (They have been known to do " encores " upon request.) " Something women ' s lib shouldn ' t see. " Horace Vander- gelder and his staff talking over the good points of having a woman around the house. 92 Mrs. Malloy and Cornileous along with Minnie Fay and Barnaby look ready to " do the town " as they stroll through the streets of New York. Make " Hello Dolly " A Huge Success. After the performance, the entire cast reports on stage for the curtain call and some well earned applause. Guests at the Harmonia Gardens are amazed by the speed and efficiency of the waiters employed at the establishment. 93 A.C.H.S. Is Transformed Into All through April and most of May, the juniors and seniors here at A.C.H.S. had one thing in mind, the Prom. A Prom is a special event at any high school but at Alleghany High, it ' s something more, (it even outranks a personal appearance by Micky Mouse) and the 1972 Prom was an example of that ideal. The juniors and seniors who attended the Prom experienced some interesting new ideas in the making of the dance. There was a new group present to provide the music; the " Cynsations " from Roanoke. The decorations for the theme, " The Enchanted Forest, " consisted of a large foliage printed canopy covering the entire dance floor with the original gingerbread house as the centerpiece. Special entertainment was presented by the junior class. James Landis and Pam Hughes were chosen as the King and Queen of the Prom and reigning as Prince and Princess were Don Dulaney and Brenda Howard. As special events go, this was one of the more special and will be remembered for a long time. Reggie Lemon and his date along with Rusty Vint and Janet Miller stroll through the " Enchanted Forest. " Juniors and seniors alike sway to the rhythms of the " Cynsations. " 94 " The Enchanted Forest rr Part of the special entertainment was a ballet routine by some of the underclassmen. Everyone moves out on the dance floor to enjoy the last bit of music for the last formal of the year. As the beat slows down so do the motions of the dancers on the floor. 95 Seniors Are Led Into A World Of Patricia Nicely, Larry Schoppmeyer, Evonne Irvine, and Gene Haskins really don ' t know which way they ' re going as they try to cross over the bridge to get to the " Enchanted Forest. " While hungry seniors and juniors wait patiently, " pixies " rolled out carts of goodies. Reggie Lemon, Pam Hughes, Mike Linkswiler, Brenda Howard, Lonnie Thompson, Nancy Harrison, Gary Price, and Karen Carr lead the seniors in the Grand March. 96 Beauty And Excitement As They Charlie Weber, Cathy Willis, John Simpson, Debby Miller, Larry Schoppmeyer, Sally Ann Wright, Kevin Fitzgerald, and Kay Reynolds help to make the 1972 Grand March one of beauty and dignity. I King and Queen of the Prom, James Landis and Pam Hughes, and Prince and Princess, Don Dulaney and Brenda Howard, reign over the happenings of the evening. 97 Experience Their Last Prom Mike Bradley entertains the seniors with his version of " Puff the Magic Dragon. " Probably one of the most exciting and yet uncertain moments in a senior ' s life— the Grand March. Students attending the Prom take time out from dancing to rest and get ready for the Grand March. 98 Twelve Extra-Special Senior Girls S. Wright, D. Ayers, P. Showalter, J. McCormick, K. Reynolds, D. Smith, M. Frye, D. Tingler, N. Harrison, E. Rooklin, and L. Kesterson are the girls chosen as candidates for Miss Alcova 1972. Miss Alcova, the most outstanding girl, is chosen after long and serious deliberation. Twelve girls are nominated by each senior in homeroom, and the twelve girls with the most votes become the candidates. To determine which of the twelve girls will be finalists and who will be Miss Alcova, each candidate must go before a panel of five judges for an interview. The judges score the girls on the basis of general awareness, poise and appearance, personali- ty, school spirit, and dating habits. From the information obtained by the judges the five finalists are chosen, but their names are kept a deep dark secret until the girls are recognized in a special assembly. Selected as Miss Alcova for 1972 was Miss Pam Hughes. First runner-up was Miss Kay Reynolds, second runner-up was Miss Donna Ayers, third runner-up was Miss Elizabeth Rooklin, and finally Miss Patty Showalter fourth runner-up. All of the candidates were qualified and they proved that the senior class of 1972 really had some girls to be proud of. 99 Compete On The Basis Of Persona! Appearance, Pam Hughes, Miss Alcova 1972, expresses a look of total astonishment as J. Landis presents her with her roses. First runner-up. Miss Kay Reynolds, is caught in her favorite place, the library. 100 Personality, School Spirit, Knowledge, Third runner-up, Elizabeth Rooklin, manages to get in some time on the phone between classes. Donna Ayers, second runner-up, seems to be overjoyed at having completed the personal interview that each candidate must go through. Patty Showalter, fourth runner-up, exhibits the typical finalist attitude— " Who . . . me? " 101 And Dating Habits In Order Being more excited than really realizing what is happening, the five finalists are as follows; Patty Showalter, Kay Reynolds, Pam Hughes (Miss Alcova), Donna Ayers, and Elizabeth Rooklin. Finalists Donna Ayers and Patty Showalter quiz each other on different topics before going in to be interviewed by the judges. 102 To Be Selected As Miss ALCOVA Elizabeth Rooklin and Nancy Harrison like to look their best— especially when it is almost time for them to meet the judges who will pick Miss Alcova 1972. 103 Senior Class Selected Mike Every year the senior class bestowes upon the most outstanding male in the class the title of " Boy of the Year. " This unique person is chosen by a vote and is se- lected on the basis of his personality, athletic abilities, and academic achievements. The recipient of this award, Alvin Michael Linkswiler, duly deserves the title " Boy of the Year. " He has been very active in football and wrestling, serving four years on both teams. Mike was also a three year letterman in football. He was selected as " Best All-Round, " " Most Athletic, " and " Best Looking " boy by the senior class. Also, among his athletic awards are a first place in the state wrestling tournament, and his election to the All Blue Ridge and All Area football teams. His teammates knew him as an outstanding competitor and a sincere friend. Academically, Mike maintained a " B " average and was chairman of the Honor Council. Mike displays the famous " Link " stance which helped him to become a state champion in wrestling. Mike makes a sincere appeal to the students concerning interest in the Honor Council. 104 I Linkswi er As " Boy Of The Year. Being a member of the Honor Council brings new responsibilities, and Mike finds that it is not always an easy job. 105 As Mike leaves Alleghany, he looks back and remembers those past years, and more specifically his football career. Happiness Is .. .A Senior Picnic Loving ' s camp was the scene of the 1972 se- nior picnic. Although some of the seniors there were having mixed emotions, the spirit of the occasion showed through and everyone enjoyed themselves. This was only the second time that the senior class at A.C.H.S. elected to have a picnic, but it was as big a success as the first one. Although there wasn ' t a live band present, there were plenty of things to do. Many se- niors joined together to play games, rap, or just bask in the sun. All in all the picnic proved to be a time for having fun, reflecting on the past, and also looking forward to the future. Jim Landis shows a frightened Pam Hughes that swinging today is quite different from what it was when they were smaller. Some of the more athletic seniors engage in a game of softball. Probably the most important part of any picnic is the food, and never let it be said that the class of 1972 is not " hip " to that fact. 106 With Graduation Night Row 1: B. Sartain, D. Spellman. T.

One of the special award winners recognized on graduation night is Marchita Nelson, who receives the Senior Home Economics award from Mr. Holbert. 108 Ending twelve years of hard work, Daryl Greene happily takes his diploma and receives the traditional handshake from Mr. Cvizic. But Also Expectations, What may one say of twelve years? Were they happy or sad, ambitious or laxy, industrious or unproductive, fantasized or realistic? To the graduating class of 1972 the twelve years of transition from the first day of school to graduation night were full of all these things. All through those years each individual senior exper- ienced many things, and tried in his own way to gain knowledge and wisdom. And now the class would graduate! Each senior could look around and see his friends, realizing that these were memories to cherish forever, but at the same time thinking about what to ex- pect from the future. He looked back on his mounting responsi- bilities and realized that his new decisions were tougher to make and carried more weight. Then came the most important moments of a student ' s life, he received his diploma. As he stood before an audience of parents and friends, he moved his tassel to cease being a student and be- come an alumnus of Alleghany County High. Sometimes happiness comes in the form of tears; like after graduation maybe. Junior honor marshals for 1972 are as follows: Theresa Campbell, Janet Miller, Genie Bodell, Mary Griffith. On the second row is Joyce Markham, Barbara Biddle, Charles Armentrout, Gail Minter, Teresa Nicely, and Sally Irvine. 109 A Diploma, And As Mr. Cvizic pronounces the class of 1972 graduates, some happy seniors become happy alumni. Honor graduates of the class of 1972 assemble on stage after receiving their certificates. 110 The Future Speaking on the indifference in education, Dreama Tingler, valedictorian, 1972, emphasizes . . .

Not only was the Student Co-Operative As- sociation the most effective and influential organization at Alleghany, it was also the most active. At the beginning of the year, the representa- tives assisted Miss Wolfe with the magazine cam- paign while the alternates collected for the United Fund. In November, Alleghany served as host school for the District Conference. Forced to replace ice cream sales with a new fund-raising project, a juke box was placed in the cafeteria. In an effort to better the school, trash cans and a bulletin board were purchased to be used by the students. Additional projects included sponsoring the Christmas Formal, providing academic letters for qualified students, and planning Alleghany ' s first " Senior Day. " In the Spring, the members participated in the state-wide glass recycling project and sponsored a trip to Klassroom Kwiz. As the 1971-72 school year came to an end, students began to realize that the S.C.A. was responsible for many of the improvements that had occurred throughout the year. E. Rooklin, C. Armentrout, M. Rooklin, and D. Dulaney work on part of the centerpiece for the Christmas Formal. Officers Mike Bradley, Nancy Childs, Donna Ayers, Jim Landis and Linda Kester- son admire the new juke box. 114 Faculty And A dministration Seated: Candidates D. Davis, M. Rooklin, K. Poe, M.

Alleghany County High School ' s chapter of the Future Teachers of America kept busy with many activities. Under F.T.A. sponsor Mrs. Shelor and president Jim Landis, the club prospered. In the fall of 1971, a convention was held in Richmond which led to better communications between chapters. By touring several colleges including V.P.I., Dabney S. Lancaster, and Madison, the members gained helpful inspiration in choosing the right college for them. Other activities were a Christmas party which gave members a chance to relax and socialize. Guest speaker John Wheeler informed members of the availability of teaching positions today. The F.T.A. continued its teachers ' aide program. This gave members a chance to experience " the real thing " . Among F.T.A.ers ' duties were grading papers, tutoring and substituting for absent teachers. An F.T.A. picnic brought the successful year to a close. 116 Through Future Teachers of America Mr. Cvizic presents Jim Landis with the award for being chosen " Outstanding Senior FTA member.

Fourteen juniors and seniors chosen for their outstand- ing scholarship, leadership, and citizenship composed the Francis D. Butler Chapter of the National Honor Society. Led by Jim Landis, the Honor Society initiated a tutor- ing service in which the members provided assistance for those students who were deficient in one or more subjects. In order to present a deserving senior with a scholarship at graduation, the Honor Society sold spirit raising buttons and bumper stickers. With Mrs. Armstrong as their sponsor, the Honor Society members found panel discussions to be most informative at their bi-monthly meetings. Seniors Teddy Humphries, Eddy Clemons, Bev Sartain, and Kay Reynolds are pictured on stage during the In- duction ceremony. Officers T. Humphries, P. Hughes, J. Landis, B. Sartain, and G. Bodell make plans for the next meeting. 118 i Honor Council Keeps The Big Boys Honest Two representatives chosen from each class on the basis of their overall character composed the Honor Council. Miss Wolfe was the advisor with Mike Linkswiler and Genie Bodell serving as chairman and secretary respectively. At the beginning of the year, new students were given an opportunity to join the system while old students renewed their membership. During exams council members placed posters throughout the school. These posters reminded students to always be honest. Secrecy was the key to the Honor Council ' s success. The offense box, placed in the library, encouraged students to report violations privately. The 1971-1972 school year was a successful one for the Honor Council. People realized that the system ' s purpose was to help the student rather than punish him. Honor Council secretary Genie Bodell consults sponsor Miss Wolfe while chairman Mike Linkswiler looks on. Seated: Pam Hughes, Mike Linkswiler, Genie Bodell.

Band I I 1 Adding beauty and enthusiasm to the A.C.H.S. band, the majorettes and pom pom girls proved to be invaluable to their school. Preparation for the school year began early in the sum- mer when the majorettes, led by Patricia Nicely, attended an instructive camp at the College of William and Mary. In August, the pom pom girls, with Joyce Bush as captain, got their second season off to a good start by capturing the first place trophy at a clinic held at Concord College. In addition to performing at all football games and pep rallies, the two squads accompanied the band to V.P.I. where they entertained the crowd during Band Day fes- tivities. Adding cheer to the holiday season, the pom pom girls and the majorettes marched in area Christmas parades where they delighted the spectators with their lively rou- tines and bright smiles. Throughout the year, these two groups of lovely and talented young ladies executed their routines with a spirit that inspired their fellow students. No matter what is said, the majorettes and pom pom girls are valuable assets to Alleghany ' s band and student body. Mary Walton, Joyce Bush and Michelle Clifford demonstrate quali- ties of good pom pom girls as they perform during a pep rally. Joyce Bush, Michelle Clifford, Mary Walton, Theresa Mays, Beverly Banker, Shelia Paitsel, Patricia McDowell, June Loan, and Gail Minter march onto the field for a halftime show. 121 Spirit, Loyalty and Sportsmanship • - V Standing: V.

The Pep Club ' s first undertaking was to sponsor a sock hop after the Altavista football game. The proceeds of this dance were used to purchase poster paper and paint for the club ' s poster parties. Although the Homecoming festivities were sponsored by the Colt Club, the gym was deco- rated by the junior and senior Pep Club members. A large goal post and football plus red, white, and Columbia blue streamers helped to put everyone in a spirited mood. The week before the Covington game was a busy one for the Pep Club. The members attended a school-wide poster party on Sunday and assisted the cheerleaders when the day of the game was proclaimed " National Farmer ' s Day. " Through the year the Pep Club members sup- ported Alleghany ' s teams and individuals not only in athletics but within the school. Sally Ann Wright, secretary, and Miss Jo Ann Bogan, sponsor, go over the minutes from the last business meeting. " We ' re from Alleghany, couldn ' t be prouder! " shout Pep Club members at a football game. Key Club Conducts Community Service Projects Affiliated with the Covington Kiwanis, the Key Club enjoyed an in- dustrious year. At the beginning of the term, boys who had successfully met the requirements for membership were forced to endure a week of initiation. To celebrate their survival, the mem- bers were treated to refreshments by club Sweetheart Donna Ayers. The Bridgewater College Chorale entertained at an assembly under the auspices of the Key Club. During the Christmas Season, Key Club members manned the Salvation Army booth and entertained boys from Boys ' Home at a Christmas party. Key Club bartenders seem to stifle the guests with the assortment of Western-style refreshments at the “Wild Wild West.

Students found themselves in a scene right out of the Old West at the Key Club Dance where Margaret Rooklin was crowned 1972 Sweetheart. Sev- eral of the members at- tended the Key Club International Conven- tion held in Baltimore, Maryland. A picnic at Sycamore Bend enabled members and their guests to relax at the end of a very suc- cessful year. 125 Senior Tri-Hi- Y Has Outstanding Year 1st row: S. Irvine, D. Byer, P. Nicely, B.

The Senior Tri-Hi-Y got the year off to a good start by hosting the Valley District Officers Workshop. In November, they observed National Hi-Y Week by fighting litter throughout the area and mailing greeting cards to children in hospitals. The club sponsored the Sweetheart Dance in February. “Love Ameri- can Style " proved to be an appropriate theme for the dance as it was an enjoyable evening for everyone. Sue Carol Fisher and Teresa Lockard represented the club at Model General Assembly. Sue Carol served as a Senator while Teresa was a Dele- gate. They gained valuable innformation about our state ' s government. Officers: J. Miller, P. Showalter, G. Bodell, D. Smith, E. Rooklin, M. Rooklin, C. Armentrout. Rushing to meet a deadline, Tri-Hi-Y members find that sponsoring a dance is not easy. Decorating for the Sweet- heart Dance proves to be a mixture of fun and hard work for club members. 126 Tri-Hi-Y Develops New Friendships And High Ideals Kathy Reyns, Debbie Stull, and Kathy Watts make plans for selling corsages for the Sadie Hawkins Dance. Officers: T. Waters, M. Putnam, S. Lemon, K. Poe, L. Wright, J. Lawler, and K. Bodell. Eighth and ninth grade girls are given an opportunity to make friends and develop high standards of Christian living through the Junior Tri-Hi-Y. This year, Lauren Wright led the club in many successful activities. The officers assisted the Senior Tri-Hi-Y with the District Officers Workshop in October. Several of the members also attended the District Conference at Bath County High School. The club made and sold vegetable corsages for the Sadie Hawkins Dance. This project proved to be enjoyable as well as profitable. -1 iOM ■ Table 1; L. Carroll, L. Zimmer- man, P. Terrell, T. Waters, J. Lawler, K. Reyns, D. Stull, L. Spinner. Table 2: J. Welsh, L.

Patriot Staff Members Barbara Biddle, Debbie Treynor, Janet Miller, Suzie Spraggins, and Lonnie Thompson work diligently to meet their deadlines while Jeff Lemon takes a break. Carol Jones is caught in the act of writing an editorial about cutting in line. John Stone and Judy Boerner seem puzzled about how to get started on their latest assignments. David Davis and Mike Minger expertly advise Reggie Lemon on how to answer a letter to " Dear Duke. " 128 Use New Techniques PATRIOT Staff members B. Howard, J. Lemon, B. Biddle, G. Robinson, J. Boerner, L. Thompson, J. Stone, M. Minger, J. Miller, C. Jones, D. Treynor. Editor Janet Miller consults Mr. Yates about a picture layout for the PATRIOT. Making Alleghany ' s newspaper look like a professional one was the main goal of the 1972 PATRIOT staff. With Janet Miller as editor and Mr. Samuel Yates as advisor, the twelve people who composed the staff improved the PATRIOT in many ways. For the first time in the history of A.C.H.S., the PATRIOT contained photographs illustrating the stories featured in the news- paper. Later in the year the PATRIOT was issued as a fold-out newspaper. In the fall, Janet Miller, Carol Jones and John Stone accom- panied Mr. Yates to a journalism workshop in Charlottesville where they received several awards for Alleghany ' s literary magazine, Hoofprints, and the PATRIOT. 129 Deadlines Dictate Daily Business manager Earl Fuller consults editor Jim Landis about selling ads for the Alcova. Arranging the mug shots for the classes section is quite a challenge for Patty Showalter and Pam Hughes. Under the guidance of sponsor Mrs. Joyce Barber and editor Jim Landis, the 1972 ALCOVA staff was an efficient organization. Nine seniors and three juniors composed the staff and were given the task of striving to make the 1972 yearbook the best ever. Two staff members were assigned to each of the six sections with Earl Fuller capably serving as business manager. Besides choosing the theme, cover design, and dedicatee, the staff members, along with several other seniors, solic- ited ads at area businesses. To terminate a successful year, three well kept secrets were revealed when the dedicatee. Miss Alcova, and Boy of the Year were announced at a special assembly. Rusty Vint and Genie Bodell work diligently to com- plete a football layout for the sports section. 130 Jim Landis and Mrs. Barber count receipts after a sub- scription drive. Deeds Of Dirty Dozen Rusty Vint, star photographer for the ALCOVA staff, appraises his victim before taking a picture. I Members of the annual staff surprise Mrs. Barber with a party and a gift for Christmas. Gratten Hepler and Elizabeth Rooklin try to find new ways to lay out pictures for the organizations section of the ALCOVA. Sally Wright and Charlie Weber check with the local photog- rapher about taking pictures at the Christmas Formal. 131 Teddy Humphries and Bev Sartain find that writing copy for the faculty-academics section is often a tedious task. This year, the Spanish Club combined with the French Club to form the Sprench Club. Learning the customs of French and Spanish speaking countries were the goals of the club. Under the guidance of Mrs. Sumner and Mrs. Nichols, these goals were easily achieved. The featured activity of the Sprench Club was the annual dance entitled " Rio Riviera " . All the time and hard work whi ch went into the dance made it a big success. During a post-exam party, the French stu- dents entertained the club members with a French play. Later in the year, the Spanish students presented a play to the remaining club members. Celebrating a successful year, the Sprench Club members held a picnic that was an enjoy- able occasion for everyone. With Carol Pierannunzi as President and Jim Landis and Mike Platt as Vice-Presidents, the Sprench Club became one of the most active organizations at Alleghany. 1st row: N. Andrews, T.

Standing: Mrs. Swartz, Mrs. Jamison, Miss O ' Farrell. Devoting their time and activities toward career prepara- tion, the Future Business Leaders of America have bene- fitted from the practical knowledge they acquired during the school year. The club took worthwhile tours to Dabney S. Lancaster Community College, Madison College and the Greenbrier Hotel. Members learned about the changing business world on these tours. During Thanksgiving, members went to nursing homes around the area. At Christmas many also went Christmas Caroling. To raise funds for the club ' s use, they had numer- ous sales of cookies and candy. The club prospered under guidance from officers and sponsors; Mrs. Jamison, Miss O ' Farrell, and Mrs. Swartz. To bring the prosperous year to a close, the F.B.L.A. had a banquet with the Future Nurses. Karen Averill, Pat Fridley, Becky Pedigo, Terry Linkswiler, Karen Carr and Denise Craft head for an officers ' meeting in the library. 134 FHA Members Study ‘The Era of the Consumer. " Initiation week, filled with cos- tumes and flowers, began the year for the Future Homemakers of America. Initiation for the new members was followed by a festive party. Learning about the consumer and the modern homemaker, the F.H.A. followed their motto, " The Era of the Consumer. " Aside from learning about home- making, the F.H.A. carried on many worthwhile projects. Serving for the Band and D.D. banquets, the members practiced what they had been taught. Much planning and hard work result- ing in the Sadie Hawkins Dance being a big success. In the annual fashion show, the girls modeled garments made in Home Economics class. Concluding a successive year, the F.H.A. gave the Mother-Daughter Ban- quet in which new members were in- stalled. Lisa Barker, Beverly Banker, Reva Arritt, and Debbie Honts put finishing touches on the centerpiece for The Sadie Hawkins Dance. Sitting; K. Levisay, J. May, K. Saville, E. VanLear, T. Buchanan, R.

The Distributive Education program here at A.C.H.S. proved to be very helpful to students inter- ested in business careers. First year D.E. students became familiarized with necessary business techni- ques while second year students left school on a regu- lar basis to report to work. Those students enrolled in this program composed the Distributive Education Club at Alleghany. Spon- sored by Mr. Duff, the club attended the annual D.E. Rally where club members brought recognition to A.C.H.S. by placing in several categories for competi- tion. Culminating the year, the annual D.E. banquet and picnic were held. These activities enabled the mem- bers to take a break from their daily work schedules. 136 I Varsity Club Sells Sweatshirts And Cookies Any boy who has earned his letter by playing or managing Varsity sports is eligible to become a member of the Varsity Club. Although the members do not pay dues, elect officers or conduct regular meet- ings, the Varsity Club ranks as one of the most active organizations at Alleghany. In order to raise funds for the club ' s treasury, the members sold Colt sweatshirts in the fall and assorted cookies in the spring. The proceeds were put to good use at the Varsity Club picnic where swimming, boating and good food were enjoyed by athletes and their guests.

Spon- sored by Mrs. Reynolds, the club held monthly meetings at which representatives from Virginia ' s medical schools pro- vided the club with valuable information. The club also visited area nursing homes and hospitals in an attempt to become better accustomed to hospital routines. Juniors and Seniors were given an opportunity to gain useful experience through the Candy Stripers. Sponsored by the Covington Junior Woman ' s Club, the members of this segment provided Alleghany Memorial Hospital with volunteer assistance throughout the year and assisted the Covington Red Cross with the Bloodmobile in September. 1st row: J.

Members of the Chess Club share their personal techniques with one another and play matches in order to obtain a higher rank in the club. For those students who enjoy strong competition but like to attack their op- ponents in a quiet manner, the Chess Club is definitely for them. Attending the tournament are B. Deacon, L. Thompson, T. Humphries, J. Jones and P. Smith. 140 Creativity Characterizes Art Club Gail Dunford paints a plaster pin while Steve Rowan uses an art club meeting J. Wallace relaxes while K. Gunter hurries to complete an opportunity to survey the various projects, entry in the art show. Students with definite interests in art make up the Art Club at Alleghany. This year, the club devoted all its time to projects rather than electing officers and conducting business meetings. Christmas projects kept the Art Club busy in the fall. Profits from papier mache angels, yarn dolls and Santa Clause pins provided the club with funds for the remainder of the year. In the spring, the members made candles shaped like monkeys, owls, mushrooms, and elephants. Plaster jewelry also proved to be a good project for the club. These projects were displayed at the annual art show after Baccalaureate. The public was able to see a sample of the talent that Art Club members had put to work throughout the year. Thanks to Mrs. Hodges who served the club as sponsor, the Art Club was definitely the most creative organization at Alleghany. Standing: L. Maddy, D. Bush, C. Hamlin, E. Rooklin, K. Kelley, N.

' s, Keep Virginia Green, is the only club at Alle- ghany that does not meet regularly, does not collect dues, and does not elect officers. Preventing forest fires is the main purpose of the K.V.G ' s but if they are needed they are always ready to assist in the fighting of forest fires. Assisted by forest rangers, the K.V.G. ' s go through a special training program which includes a yearly field trip. Skills acquired are inevitably put to the test. K.V.G. mem- bers not only serve Alleghany County but give the members a sense of civic responsibility. 1st row: G. Howard, B. Tucker, C. Carroll, M. Spinner, M. Jones, M. Blakey, T. McCaleb, D.

These problems are taken care of by a group of very dedicated people, the custodial staff. Mr. Markham, head custodian at A.C.H.S. has numerous jobs, some of which are keep- ing the school at a comfortable temperature, cleaning the halls, and maintaining the grounds. Mrs. Kitt ' s responsibilities include clean- ing the restrooms and teachers ' lounges. She does a creditable job of fulfilling these tasks. Working diligently, the kitchen staff pre- pares nutritious meals which are appreciated by everyone who eats in the cafeteria. Surely these overlooked people deserve special recognition for their efforts. The cafeteria staff works diligently to prepare nutritious meals for the students. Ladies of the kitchen staff appear to be rushed toward the beginning of the first lunch period. Performing one of her many duties, Mrs. Kitt cleans one of the water fountains. Mr. Markham heads for another part of the school after cleaning the cafeteria. 143 144 145 Eighth Graders Prove Themselves Capable By Spotting an 8th grader is always easy among the throng of Alle- ghany students. Eighth graders always appear confused and a bit nervous as they blunder through the halls of A.C.H.S., constantly searching for their classrooms. Regardless of the typical mistakes made by eighth graders, their support of A.C.H.S. has been tremendously important to many school activities. Entering high school has not been an easy task for these students, yet they have handled new responsibilities with capability and positive results. By joining the clubs available to them and by participating in sports activities, the Class of ' 76 has proved itself invaluable to A.C.H.S. The spirit and enthusiasm exhibited by eighth graders has been of great importance to A.C.H.S. as a whole and has involved our youngest class with high school life. A typical eighth grader, Cathy Bodell, tries to cipher a complicated Pre-Algebra problem. Stepping up into high school life, eighth grade class officers Jill Lienhardt, Vicki McCormick, and Richard Sawyer smile as they prepare to face new responsibilities. 146 Involving Themselves In Most School Activities Donald McKinney Adams Valerie Joan Adkins Clara Kathy Anderson Dawn Christie Andrews Ricky Dale Angle Marshall Allen Armentrout William Dallas Armentrout, III Terry Brian Averill David Eugene Ayers Glenys Sue Bailey Barry Grant Balser Dana Lynn Baker Kim Rebecca Barger Kathy Cover Bartley Ryland Lanier Bates Jan Michael Batten Coite Charles Beirne Betty Jean Bess Connie Sue Black Gerald Lee Black Ricky James Black Annette Ellen Byer Ronald Berkley Campbell Dolly Gail Carter Lucy Marie Carter James William Cash Steve Montey Cash Debra Kaye Chapman Vince Foster Clark Clell Richardson Clemons Janice Marie Coffey Vance Elliot Carter Debra Louise Combs Debora Jean Craft Reginald Wayne Craft Judith Lynn Davis Rebecca Ann Davis Russell Dean Dawson Mary Ann DePriest Fran Marie Downey Sharon Kay Downey Steven Charles Downey Cathy Marie Dudley Anna May Duncan Donna Kay Dunford Pamela Jean Edwards Timothy Lee Eggleston Douglas Allen Elbon Frankie Leon Fagg Patricia Anne Faidley Jackie Lynn Farren Deborah Claudine Ferrell Edward Vernon Ferrell Gilbert Wayne Flint Victoria Leigh Franklin Donna Jean Fridley Rhonda Faye Craft Robert Paul Crawford Michael Clayton Crowder Rebecca Kaye Crowder Cynthia Ann Crum 147 Newcomers To AC HS Find Themselves James Glenward Holland Cynthia Lynn Hoover Christine Madeline Hosey Sylvester Pearl Hosey Lisa Kaye Hubbard Darrell Vaughn Kerr Robin Neal Keyser Michael Wayne Kimberlin Timmy Allen Kimberlin Judy Gay Knott Linda Sue Fury Elizabeth Hyrne Futch Cheryl Dawn Goode Deborah Lee Graham Curtis Reginald Green Gary Lee Griffith Calvin Eugene Hamlin Kimberly Susan Hanson Rebecca Ann Harrison Ricky Lee Hartman Richard Dale Haskins Gary Lynn Haynes John Reginald Hayslett Sara Marsha Heaster Charles Willard Hepler Darrell Wynn Hicks Patricia Carol Hicks Lynwood Ray Higgins James Raymond Hobbs Rembert Stephen Hoke Tammy Lynn Hoke Brenda Kay Hughes Steven Richard Humphries Ruth Emily Hylton Cheryl Ann Jack Nancy Lynne Jamison Debra Marie Jennings Timothy Todd Jennings Gary L.

Richard acquired many friends here at Alleghany and was voted Vice President of his class. Although his life was short, Richard excelled in the field of Art and contributed to ACHS by entering a drawing in the 1972 Hoofprints. The Eighth Grade Class, along with ACHS as a whole, will long remember— Richard Charles Sawyer. Richard Charles Sawyer 150 With Their Advancement Finally able to sit down during assemblies, the ninth grade class officers, Jane Lawler, Tammy Lipscomb, Sharon Lemon, and Grace Ray enter Hodnett Hall with smiles of relief. Facing their second year of high school, the freshman class found numerous changes at Alleghany. Not only were there different courses of study offered, but also, many new classrooms and first year teachers were now a part of the school. This year, the boys were eligible to participate in many junior varsity, as well as, varsity sports, such as basketball, football and baseball. On the other hand, the girls could try out to be pom pom girls, cheer- leaders, or majorettes. Freshmen were also able to further pursue their social interests by joining such organizations as FTA, KUG ' S, FNA and the Sprench Club. Class members were now permitted to attend their first formal dances and 1 6 freshman girls were given the honor to serve at the prom. Enthusiasm and devotion were clearly seen throughout the year as the freshman class pressed onward to attain their seniority. 151 Into Their Freshman Year Murray Frank Buchanan III Rocky Allen Campbell Jill Clark Charles Eugene Collins Gary Lee Cook Charlene Sue Fridley Jennifer Lynn Frye Dennis Wayne Fury Dennis Owen Gadd Elizabeth Olga Gardner Gary Wayne Gayhart Nathan Harold Goldberg Nylieve Eitreve Gregory Debra Ann Hall Michael Allen Hall Gary Edward Harper Cynthia Ann Harrison Clara Renee Harvey Tracy Layne Haynes Toni Ann Higgins Diana Sue Adkins Steve Grover Ailstock William Lee Ailstock III Alfred Hershel T.

The Tenth Grade brought to its students the newly acquired ability to participate in varsity sports, clubs and other activities. Sophomores were thus challenged and student life became more interesting for them. ACHS ' s Class of ' 74 also attained new heights in the academic world. Delving into many difficult subjects in- cluding biology and geometry proved interesting yet arduous at times. During their Sophomore year, the Class of ' 74 became more responsible individuals.

From the first weeks of school, the Juniors had one main objective in mind— to make the Prom an exceptional suc- cess. Along with the newly elected officers, the class members worked diligently to provide the needed funds for the Prom. The Variety Show aided the Juniors with their money Making ventures as well as illustrated the diverse talents among the student body at Alleghany. Class mem- bers also devoted time to helping with concessions during basketball games. Then as time passed. May was upon the Juniors and the Prom only weeks away. The last plans had been made and the majestic scene would soon be culminated. Finally the night of The Enchanted Forest arrived and the exuberant Seniors and elated, but exhausted Juniors, enjoyed an enchanting evening. Junior class officers study plans for their prom.

Into " A Newer Age " In the fall of 1971, the Seniors returning to Alleghany for their last year found the novel changes exciting. The school ' s appearance was not the only surprise in store for them as Alleghany ' s daily routine had also been changed considerably. The Seniors had many unique events to look forward to and among them were the Senior Class Play, Senior Ban- quet and of course, graduation. Their first Senior privilege of marching into assemblies brought to them the realiza- tion that their days at Alleghany were rapidly drawing to a close. The Class began to look ahead with anticipation and a little dismay knowing that " tomorrow " was just ahead, and with it, came the beginning of a new and different life for each individual. Roger May chalks up another award for the Seniors by winning a pair of pantaloons given by the cheer- leaders to the most original farmer during National Farmer Day. Senior Class Officers Nancy Harrison, Secretary; Pam Hughes, Pres- ident; Donna Ayers, Treasurer; and Mike Linkswiler, Vice-President; seem to be ardently pursuing possibilities for the Senior Class Play. Mr. Carter is pleasantly amused as Daryl Greene tries to differentiate between the conflicting political party platforms. 168 With Experience, Enthusiasm And Encouragement Rodney Edward Adkins Bobby Wayne Angle Timothy Eugene Anshutz Nancy Caroleen Archie Donna Marie Armentrout Karen Suzanne Averill Donna Sue Ayers Lisa Ann Barker Cennie Sue Barrington Edward Ervin Bennett Ronnie Lynn Bennett Virginia Dale Bess Donna Kay Black Gary Wayne Boerner David Allen Boone Beverly Ann Bowyer Barbara Ann Brackenridge Effie Jane Brackenridge Donna Jean Brown Deborah Lynn Burch 169 Expressing New Ideas And Being Reminded Bonnie Sue Byer David Lowry Byer Debra Melisa Byer Homer Clemmer Byer James William Byer Bryan Oswald Carroll Beverly Tucker Carson Michael Leo Carter Jerry Reid Curtis Claude William Deacon Becky Sue Downey Randolph Wayne Downey David Eugene Charles Linda Sue Clark Robert Lee Clark George Edward Clemons 170 Of Those Gone By . . f Sue Carol Fisher Kevan Jeter Fitzgerald Barry Rexal Fridley Martha Alice Frye Earl Foster Fuller, Jr. Lucille Ethel Garrett Daryl William Greene Allen Lee Griffin Kathleen LaVerne Haynes Richard Lee Helmintoller Kathy Darlene Hicks Joyce Carol Hinkle Gary Douglas Gumm James Madison Hall Pamela Rae Hanson Nancy Leigh Harrison 171 Seniors Are Faced With The Reality Edith Lee Hoke Eunice Loree Hoke Gary Thomas Hoke George Michael Howard Pamela Marie Hughes Teddy Arthur Humphries, .
