Our script is based on joy. sorrow, triumph, defeat, hope, power, and ourselves. Our action is here, at Alleghany High School. I’ve been lately thinking about my lifetime, all the things I’ve done and how it’s been. And I can’t help believing in my own mind, 1 know I’m gonna hate to see it end ... How long it’s been since yesterday, what about tomorrow, what about our dreams and all the memories we’ve shared? — John Denver Hey Tomorrow, Where are you going? Do you have some room for me? ‘Cause night is failin’, And the dawn is callin’, I’ll have a new day, if she’ll have me. — Jim Croce When is man educated? When he knows how to live, how to love, how to hope, how to pray — glad to live and not afraid to die, in his hand a sword for evil, in his heart a bit of a song.” — Joseph Fort NewtownI have wandered through this world As each moment has unfurled, 1 have been waiting To awaken from these dreams. People go just where they will, 1 never noticed them until 1 got this feeling That it’s latter than it seems. — Jackson Browne 1 celebrate myself, and sing myself. — Walt Whitman Our show — In one endless moment We did it all. Someone .. . alone. All of us ... together We were the moment . ... now gone.8Double Vision 10CelebrationJames A Greene 1966 1981 Serving as the first principal of Alleghany High School, James A. Greene proved that it is possible to supervise a school and at the same time take an active interest in its students Mr Greene spent many long hours completing tasks that made the teachers' work easier He was always aware of what was happening in each department but encouraged the teachers to work independently With a firm, fair, and positive hand, Mr Greene guided, disciplined, and motivated the students and faculty to accomplish a successful consolidation of Sparta and Piney Creek High Schools. During his years, Mr Greene accomplished many things to make Alleghany High School a top-ranked school in our area. Some of these are listed below: 1 Introduced many new courses. 2. Started the teacher-assistant program for seniors. 3. Began mini-courses in English and science. 4 Instituted a new social studies program for freshmen 5. Originated the choir and helped get risers and robes. 6. Aided in setting up the student council. 7. Supported strongly the girls' athletic program 8 Was a strong supporter of the Beta Club. (He was a member of the North Carolina Beta Club Council for several years ) 9. Consolidated school bus routes. 10. Set up the Foreign Student Exchange Program 11 Began the wrestling program and was influential in getting the conference program started. 12 Encouraged students to participate in extracurricular activities by adding club meetings during the school day In addition to the above, Mr Green was involved in many community activities He was a member of the U S Mint Board, the Lions Club (where he solicited over on thousand eye wills), and the Sparta Baptist Church where he was a member of the Board of Deacons and a Sunday School teacher. He donated over five gallons of blood to the Red Cross and encouraged students and faculty to do the same A sense of humor, the ability to communicate with students, and a concern for our school are only a few of the many, many reasons why we can claim Mr Greene as our own Despite the busy days, he found time to discuss plans, protects, and problems with faculty and students. In this year of his retirement from service in public education, we take this opportunity to thank him His guidance and understanding have earned him a place of highest esteem in our hearts. The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in all of us the conviction and the will to cany on. j7Act -— ActivitiesANNUAL STAFF TROJAN REFLECTS CHANGING PACE A dark night ...

We extend a special thanks to Mrs. Daniel, Mrs. Armentrout, and Mrs. Irwin for their time and efforts. Also, thanks to all the students who were not annual staff members but, nonetheless, contributed to the success of our yearbook. Lois Brooks and Pam Blevins Advertising Managers v y r Compliments of Edmund I. Adams Attorney at Law Sparta, N.C. V J 197The lights are brought up and the curtain is drawn as our final act at Alleghany High School comes to a close. We, the editors of the 19X2 Trojan, hope that the events, the actions, and the moments captured "LIVE, IN COMMAND CONCERT PERFORMANCE" will bring memories to be looked back upon with pnde and pleasure in future years. This year, the Trojan has undergone many changes. Therefore, we owe several people a special "thank you" for all of their diligent work, hours, and concern. For Mrs. Minnie Lou Irwin, Ms. Biltye Daniels, and our new sponsor, Mrs. Judy Armentrout, we cannot find words to express our gratitude. We also thank the faculty for allowing us the needed time away from class and the countless interruptions. The annual staff de- serves special commendation for doing the extra work regwred of them this year as do Philbp Daniels, Priscilla Cochran, Loretta Wood, and Lisa Baldwin. Millie Richardson is yet another individual who gave of her time to contribute the action shots for our sports section. And how could we have functioned without Mrs. Bottomley, directing, guiding, and assist- ing us in correspondence and picture schedules? Moreover, we extend a heartfelt thanks to our famibes who have been so patient and under- standing throughout our ranting and raving as we struggled to meet deadbnes. Lastly, we thank Bob Chapelt, our photographers, and Hunter Pubbshing Company for a technical job well done. During our experience as annual editors, we have viewed our school in a new bght on paper and through a camera. Slowly, we have come to reabze how intrinsic the sbxmming of lockers, the ring of laughter, and the bustle of student life is to our tiny school. Alleghany High School has always been a reflection of its students, and we proudly continue the tradition of a warm, caring student body. We, the editors of the I9H2 Trojan, challenge each student to be his or her best self . May your every audience call Encore! and your every script have a happy ending as you fulfill the roles in your life. Thank you and Cod bless, Susan and Jeff Class Flower Yellow Rose Class Colors Yellow and White Class Motto How you live, how you fly, Smiles you’ll give, tears you’ll cry All you touch, all you see, Is all your life will ever be 200
