The signs of the time were all around I AHS. Over six hundred students entered Alliance High in I the fall. Each was required to take six academic classes, and one might consider the sign' of academics to be equivalent to the" Men at Work" sign seen along a road. Many students found themselves involved in fine arts, where the sign could have read "Construction Ahead." Still others joined clubs and organizations that functioned almost non-stop, as if influenced by a "No Parking" sign, and others became involved in sports, where they raced ahead, seemingly heedless of any "Speed Limit" signs. All students, teachers, administrators, and staff made up the most important part of AHS, its people or classes. This diverse blend of individuals, who would never be all together again after graduation, was the biggest and the most obvious sign of the time. 2 Several members of the band display their enthusiasm for the photographer The band played at halftime of several football games. Who has the winning hand? Cabe Gonzalez, Nathan Mink, Dan Huss, lames Bartels, and 8rian Moomey all hope that they will be the lucky one who wins. laimi Moravek and Dawn Brammer feel the need to release their enthusiasm by raising their arms and, in Dawn's case, opening her mouth Signs of enthusiasm could be seen all around AHS, especially after one finished a big test. 2 OpeningSigns of the Time juniors jody Bredenkamp and Lori Mendoza are all decked out for the football game Several members of the Pom Squad painted their faces for the playoff game against Chadron Seniors )oei Bruntz, Vanessa Curtiss, Dawn Brammer.

Volleyball coaches Sandra Pilfold and Joni Schlatz do the can-can before the pep rally Perhaps this brought good luck as the football team defeated Ogallala that night Opening 3Centennial Marks Many Changes in Some of the best signs of the changing times can be seen through the architecture of the buildings; more specifically, in the many school buildings used by Alliance students during the past 100 years. In the early days of Alliance, the biggest problem was to find a place to hold school. Many youngsters were taught trades through parents and neighbors. A book was considered a precious holding, since very few of them could be obtained. Some of the very first schools in Alliance were held in sod houses and abandoned sheds or dugouts. One spring term was even held in a tent. Pupils would bring books from home that had been used in their homes and it was not surpris- ing to have books with different authors and views on ideas. The curriculum included reading, penmanship, history, music, and English. A slate and chalk were a common sight as a student sat in a homemade desk and chair. It was the teacher's duty to chop firewood and bring in water for the students. Some of the common punishments included: standing in the corner, facing the wall; staying in at a recess; or a whack on the palm with a ruler. Buildings, books, teachers, and disciplines have advanced greatly since those days. The high school alone has been held in three different buildings and each new building has increased the number of classrooms for the growing number of students. The newest school building, at 100 West 14th, was originally built as the new junior high school in the 50's, but was converted to the high school in 1967. More recently, in 1987, Alliance added eleven classrooms, a new locker room, and a new office for the administration. The entire school now covers about one full city block. Alliance has advanced greatly since the first days in the developing of Box Butte County, and the school buildings have allowed for more room and better facilities for students over the years. The above picture gives a view of one of the old high schools built in Alliance It was built in 1922, before the previous building was torn down. The building sits between 11th and 12th streets, facing Laramie Avenue. It was built even before there were any houses along west side of Laramie Avenue. The school held various classes for grades nine through twelve. The building is now the Alliance Middle School and it holds classes for grades six through eight. A new gym and locker rooms were added on to the building in 1987.

The reason is shown through the above picture. This is a picture of the original Emerson School. It was built between 5th and 6th streets facing Emerson Avenue and, therefore, giving it its name. (Photo Courtesy of the Knight Museum) "The Old Soddie School," as it was called, gives a view of what some of the first schools in Alliance looked like. Many times the school had no floor and could have even been held in an abandoned barn. The teacher shown taught grades one through eight. Her name was Lottie Worley, and she was the Potato Queen of Nebraska. (Photo Courtesy of the Knight Museum) One of the first high schools in Alliance was built on the southeast corner of the eleven hundred block, facing Box Butte Avenue. The building remained until students and teachers in a home learning class complained of the swaying on the top floor while the wind would blow hard on many occasions. It was eventually torn down after the new building was built on Laramie Avenue (Photo courtesy of the Knight Museum) 1888-1988 The original Central School building was built in 1890, facing Box Butte Avenue. It was built before Grandview and Emerson Schools were built. Students would come from the surrounding area and board in the school. Postcards with a picture of the school were made for the children to send home to their families. Fire caused the building to burn down on December 17, 1912.

Homecoming activities included arm wrestling, a baby bottle chugging contest, the jersey auction, hall decorations, a parade, the crowning of royalty and the football game On the first day of the exciting week, such people as Denise Manuei, Dawn Brammer, and Tammy Pierce were seen showing their muscles in right-handed arm wrestling. Michelle Pearson, Shelly Thompson, and Cheryl Bolen pulled for a left-handed victory. Among the boys, Mitch Parascand, |oel Fought, and Chris Allen, gave the crowd a good show with their amazing strength, by straining for almost five minutes straight. Also, on this first day of the homecoming celebration, students were asked to wear sweatshirts. On Thursday, students enjoyed a relaxing day, by wearing their beach outfits; some even included the towel and beach bag. The Thursday lunch activity was the famous jersey auction. The highest price paid for a jersey was by Carey Firestein and Dusty Crawford, who bought lason Tritle's and T.| Marx's jerseys, respectively, for $12 each and wore it for a day. The activity for Friday lunch was the baby bottle chugging contest. Friday's dress up day was to wear jerseys or blue and white. The school was also allowed to hold a parade that proceeded from the high school to Fourth Street on Box Butte Avenue. Parade winners included First Place, Freshmen; Second Place, Seniors and Student Council; Third Place, Juniors. Evening activities of Thursday included the Coronation and Burning of the "A". Homecoming Queen and King were Jaimi Moravek and T roy Schnell. The attendants were T.J. Marx, Tori Hoxworth, Brent Simpson, and Cheryl Bolen. Friday night was the dual between Ogallala and Alliance for a football victory, which ended in a 13-7 score, and an Alliance victory. The finale of the week was the Homecoming Dance Approximately 250 people attended the dance in which music was played by 'Complete Music.’ All went as planned for an enjoyable week. The following Monday, Shelly Thompson stated, "I'm glad everything went well because we worked hard to succeed." 6 Homecomingthe Winning Dream Happen The opening kick-off gave Alliance the advantage of a spint-lifting tackle made by Ron Weekes and T.j Marx, while Bill Boness and Colin Weekes were ready to move in on the tackle 'Let's Do the Twist ', as demonstrated by Kathy Green and her friend Khs Kerr, was one of the various fun games played during the dance Hall decorations, made with balloons and streamers. tacked near the new office, by Juniors Teresa Blaylock, Shelly Shannon, and Jeff Morrison, earned the class a third place award, despite their "windy" efforts. The AHS Homecoming Royalty and crown bearers to preside over the homecoming activities include Freshmen attendants Scott Dobson and Jenny Saum, Sophomore attendants Mike Kimmel and Caitlin Gallup; Senior second attendants Brent Simpson and Cheryl Bolen. Crown Bearer LaRessa Foy. Queen Jaimi Moravek. King Troy Schnell; Crown Bearer David Schadwinkel. Senior attendants T.J. Marx and Tori Hoxworth, and Junior attendants Brent Blume and Shelly Shannon Homecoming 7Signs of the Time Are Present The Iran-Contra Scandal One of the biggest Presidential scandals, the Iran-Contra scandal, occurred in 1987. Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North was charged with using-profits from U.S. weapons sold secretly to Iran to send military supplies to the Contras who were fighting the Sandanista government of Nicaragua. North claimed that he assumed that the President was aware of what he was doing, and it had been approved through his superiors. North was quoted by Newsweek magazine as saying "Using the Ayatullah's resistance... I think it was a nice idea.” Americans were left to form their own judgments. Twins Take World Series The World Series has a tendency to capture and hold the attention of many avid sports fans during the late summer-early fall sports season, and the 1987 World Series was no exception. The battle was fought by the St. Louis Cardinals and the Minnesota Twins, who could hardly be compared with the Twins of 1982 who lost a hundred and two games. The first two games of the series were played in Minnesota, and the Twins were victorious over the Cardinals in both games. The competition was then moved to St. Louis for the next three games, all of which were won by the Cardinals, making the record three to two in favor of the Cardinals. In the final two games, played in Minnesota, the Twins were victorious and won the series four games to three. This was the first time in World Series history where the home team has won every game. Frankie Viola, Minnesota Twins pitcher, was named the Most Valuable Player of the 1987 World Series and had his cap put in the Hall of Fame. Alliance City Council is Recalled An event striking a little closer to home was the Alliance City Council recall. Mayor Dick Zellaha was petitioned successfully for a recall vote held in mid-December, with fellow councilmen Duane Worley and Wendy Firestein's set for lanuary. Worley did not seem bitter about the recall and said "It's an example of law and democracy in action for the whole community. It is not a common occur-rance, and however it turns out, it will prove that the system of checks and balances works." He ended the discussion by quoting from the JayCee's Creed, "Government is of laws rather than of men." That is why there is a constitution; a successful country or organization needs a set of guidelines to go by. Pope Visits U.S. Pope lohn Paul II made his second journey to the United States in September of 1987. He made his first visit to the United States as the first Polish pope in 1979. Since then, he has become the most traveled, most televised, and most talkative pope in Roman Catholic history. Pope John Paul II was the first pope to tour the South and was pleased overall with the friendly greetings he received all across the United States. U.S. Constitution Celebrates 200 Year Anniversary In September 1987, the United States celebrated the bicentennial anniversary of her Constitution. The Constitution of the United States of America went into effect in 1789 over a country comprised of thirteen Atlantic seaboard states whose main occu- Mayor Dick Zellaha greets councilman Tom Podhaisky as he enters the meeting room. Zellaha, Wendy Feirstien, and Duane Worley were all successfully petitioned to a recall vote to be held in December and lanuary. 8 Current Eventsin Many Current Events pation was farming. Today, the Constitution successfully presides over a country comprised of fifty states that is very much industrialized. The Constitution of the United States of America is an important document in the U.S. government, and it deserves a good deal of recognition. Up With People Up With People visits Alliance once every two years and this was the year. The Up With People assemblage made appearances in Alliance from September 21 through September 24. Participants in the group represented over half of the states and many foreign countries. Local families extended their hospitality, warm meals, and extra rooms for the troup's four-day stay. Up With People gave two evening performances to full houses on the twenty-third and twenty-fourth. Baby Jessica's Miracle Chip and Cissy McClure certainly had something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving: their daughter's life, lessica McClure, a nineteen month old child from Midland, Texas, plunged down a water well in her parent's backyard in the morning hours of October 13,1987. Fifty-eight and one half hours after falling down the well, rescue workers retrieved lessica, who had been wedged twenty-two feet deep in an eighteen inch pipe, by digging through solid rock. She was taken to Midland Memorial Hospital where she spent the next thirty-five days. During her stay, Jessica underwent operations in an attempt to save her right foot, which had been wedged in an awkward position, due to circulation problems. Thankfully, only a little dead skin and her right little toe were removed, lessica left the hospital on Friday, November 19, wearing a cast and limping slightly, but she was walking. Her doctor. Doctor Shelton Viney, told reporters that "Her long-term prognosis is excellent. She's a young child, and she ought to be able to walk without any kind of a noticeable limp." lessica McClure is a miracle for her family to be thankful for. Stock Market Plunges Major history was made this year when the stock market plunged on Monday, October 19, 1987, in a selling panic comparable to that of the infamous Great Crash of 1929 that helped trigger the Great Depression of the 1930's. The Dow Jones Industrials fell 508.32 points, a loss of nearly one thousand points since the market's peak on August 25, 1987. This decline left the Dow industrial average about thirty-six percent below its peak of 2,722.42 points on August 25, and at its lowest point since April of 1986. The volume of trading reached 604.4 million shares, surpassing the record of about 330 million shares set the Friday before. Shares that lost in value outnumbered those that gained by fourty-eight to one. This sharp decline in the stock market marked the second "Black Monday" in United States history. Carhenge Under Construction Alliance area residents may have thought Alliance had been moved to England for a time when Jim Reinders, from Texas, first began erecting his "Carhenge," on land he owns just north of town. Reinders got the idea to build his masterpiece after visiting the Stonehenge. The Stonehenge is an ancient monument on the Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, England. The replica of the nearly four-thousand year old monument is designed exactly the same except that the blocks of gray sandstone were replaced with old cars. Many hours of hard work went into the construction of "Carhenge," and it certainly didn't go unnoticed. |im Reinders' replica of the Stonehenge lies about four miles north of Alliance. ‘ Carhenge” has received nationwide recognition. Current Events 9How Does a Teenager Spend the Friendship is one of the most important requirements for having fun. Nikki Pierce and Jenny Bolen are obviously good friends. Box Butte Avenue seems to be one of the most popular hangouts for Alliance teens. It's also a terrific place to find out what everyone else is doing. Nicole Neafus and Caitlin Gallup prepare to "hit the bricks'' again after stopping at Seven-Eleven for a quick snack Of course, having fun can take a lot of money Jesse Renteria takes care of produce at Shop 'n' Save to earn his spending money. Cory Kammerer is caught entering Seven-Eleven on a Saturday night What could Seven-Eleven possibly have that everyone seems to want? 10 OpeningDays of His Life Away From AHS? Every fall, one part of a teenager's life ends and another begins. Those long, lazy days of summer spent at the Pits, the dam, or lounging around in front of a television were packed away in a photo album to remember during those long cold days spent within the four walls of a classroom. lust exactly what does a teenager do when he or she is not in school, though? Read on, and find out! A favorite for almost any teenage girl was catching up on soap-operas that were taped on a VCR during the day. Guys seemed to get quite a bit of enjoyment from tinkering with cars, lifting weights, or watching Monday Night Football on television. But of course, the favorite pastime of many guys and girls was the discussion of the opposite sex and gossip, gossip, gossip!!! There really were a lot of things to do during off-school hours, and if a person looked hard enough, he might even find something he liked. "Like What?" Did somebody ask that? Well, to be honest, the Annual Staff did, too, so they took a poll to find out exactly what it was that teenagers liked to do to occupy their time, and here's what we found out: many enjoyed playing sports such as football, basketball, racquetball, and tennis. Others enjoyed watching T.V., with their favorite channel being MTV-what "Would you like another order of bread sticks?" demands Stacey Von Tour Stacey works at Pizza Hut to gain the funds she needs to do the things she likes else! ?! Others talked on the telephone, went shopping, spent time with their friends, and "cruised the Butte." With all these wonderful activities at one's finger tips, teenagers were never at a loss for something to do, were they? One last thing to be remembered about being a teenager was the dreaded curfew. There was a wide variety of curfews being enforced, depending a lot on age. Some curfews ranged from nine o'clock to eleven o'clock on school nights, while others were in the area of ten o'clock to one o'clock on the weekends. There were even a few teenagers who didn't have a curfew. Could that really be true? No matter what the curfew or chosen activity on a Saturday afternoon or evening, most teenagers managed to find some form of entertainment. After all, what is high school life without a little fun!?! lohn Wilson, Sean Nollette, and less Sloan are caught in front of Sean's pickup trying to decide what to do on this Friday night Amy Roberts makes it clear that "cruising the Butte" is one of her favorite forms of entertainment Opening 11Sports Sports proved to be a major sign of the time at Alliance High School. Successful seasons ignited spirit and suppport at AHS and in the community. Those individuals involved in sports seemed to always exceed the "speed limit" as they raced ahead, hoping to run a little faster, spike a little harder, shoot a little better, or play a little better.Athletes reached for individual and team goals, sometimes reaching them and sometimes not. Dedicated athletes stayed after school to practice, often not arriving home until after six or seven o'clock, where homework usually awaited. Student athletes were a sign of the time. Athletes had to maintain at least a 2.0 average and could not be flunking in their academic classes or they found themselves ineligible. Success was also a sign of the time at AHS, with most sports members finding some sort of success. Perhaps success wasn't always found in a team's record, but possibly in attitude, or hard work or maybe just in knowing that the best one had was given in sports participation- another sign of 1987-88. AHS teachers help to create spirit by decorating their doors. Mrs. Kathy Graham's lettermen' encourage the Alliance High athletes. Many a dedicated ahtlete will work to condition himself in the off season. Unseasonably warm weather gave athletes like Dustin Darveau an excel lent chance to run on the track even in December. A spirit sign made by the cheerleaders is a common sign at AHS. Cheerleaders made a sign for every athletic event throughout the year. 12 Sports DivisionSports Division 13"We Came So Close!"

Varsity Football 15j.V., Frosh Provide Nucleus Victories, Experience Give Future The football games started on September 7 for freshmen and September 10 for junior varsity, but they had already been hard at work in practice for at least two weeks. Coaches Nelson, Jansante, and Coffee thought that the J.V. and freshmen teams improved throughout the seasons, while freshmen Coach Dave Sautter agreed, "This group of players made great strides in becoming another group of fine young men and outstanding football players. Their ability to work hard and work together as a unit ended in a very successful season with a 4-2 record. They will be a fine addition to next year's J.V. team." The freshmen squad's two losses came from Scottsbluff and Gering. Team victories for the freshmen were over Mitchell, Kimball, Chadron, and Sidney. The J.V.'s had a 6-1 record. J.V. players, who also played on the varsity squad, were voted most valuable or most improved. The junior most improved player was Scott Lehl and the most valuable was Jason Tritle. The sophomore most improved player was Ron Weekes and most valuable was Travis Sherlock."The way the team performed throughout the season and learned more week by week indicated that Coach Olds should have a good nucleus to work with next year," observed Mr. Steve Nelson, coach for the J.V. squad.

The 1987 Spiker team was the first team in the history of Alliance High volleyball to ever win 20 games in a season, and this team was also rated as high as third in Class B in the Omaha World Herald. This alone showed the team's dedication, and when one realizes that this team also won the Torrington Invitational, the Alliance Invitational, the Western Conference Tournament, and never lost two games in a row, one begins to understand and see what a determined group of young ladies this team was. The season began with Alliance racing to an 8-1 start, losing only to Ogallala, the eventual district champion. Coach Pilfold commented, "This team hangs together and will keep on improving all season." And this team did exactly that by soundly defeating then tenth ranked Kimball, and avenging an earlier loss to then second ranked Sidney. The Spikers could often be heard making positive comments, such as "I believe in you; I belive in our team," or "We can do it," or hitter Dawn Brammer's somewhat infamous, "DOOOO IT!!!" The Alliance Spikers finished the season rated eighth by the World Herald. Starting senior setter Vanessa Curtiss expressed her feelings, " At the beginning of the season, one of our goals was to never lose two games in a row, and because of lots of teamwork, we reached that goal." Her sister, and other starting setter, Vikki Curtiss, added, "We had a great season, and although I am disappointed with how it ended. I'm proud to have been a part of this extra special team." All in all, this team was a group of close, hardworking athletes who had an excellent season that stimulated pride for everyone involved. Concentration and determination fill senior Brenda Dobson's face as she passes the ball. Brenda, along with teammates laimi Moravek and Kristin Peterson, was named to the "All-State Honorable Mention team by the Omaha World Herald Setters. Vanessa Curtiss and Vikki Curtiss discuss the next play during the pre-season scrimmage. At the end of the season, Vanessa was named Honorable Mention in the Region by the Scottsbluff Star Herald, while Vikki was named to the All-State First Team in Class B by the Omaha World Herald. First server senior laimi Moravek breaks through the paper as her name is announced, laimi was selected to the All Conference Team and was an Honorable Mention player for the All Region Team in the Scottbluff Star Herald. 18 Varsity VolleyballThe Spiker team includes Dawn Brammer, Tracy Bell.

In running cross country one had to want to run in order to make it enjoyable and fun. It was not like running around a track ten times. It was much more like running a trail around a few trees, through creeks, on golf courses, through pastures, around lakes, and on roads. A practice consisted of mile repetitions or just a stretch of road lasting three to five miles for the girls and three to six for the boys. Mile repetitions were hard paced running for one mile with three big sand hills. This was done repeatedly over the same mile, three to five times. To run in a meet, a team of four or more runners had to be in the same uniform and look exactly alike, except for one. No watches or time pieces were allowed to be worn, and wearing a tag stating one's name and school was required. In order to place in team standings, a team needed to have four runners. If there was no team, they could run for individual places, to earn medals. The top five runners of a team were varsity, and the rest were novice runners. Only the boys had a novice race and the girls all ran varsity. In order to have earned a medal the varsity runners had to place in the top ten. Coach Kuehn wrapped up the year by saying, " We had the smallest team ever, but we still showed improvement from last year. Our major objective for next year will be finding more runners." Freshman |im Hood shows how fun running can be while competing in the boys novice race. The 1987 Cross Country runners include, from top to bottom, |im Hood, Rhonda Nemechek, Teresa Stephenson.

James Kiewel commented, "The ones who went to state knew what they were doing." In practices, the team members worked on forehand, backhand, and ground strokes. Also, they used a ball machine to aide them in returning the ball to a certain area. They used three nets in practice: the first net was used for scrimmaging, the second was used to get individual help from Coach Woody Vosberg, and the third net was used for the individual to perfect a skill he needed to work on. The players who attended state were two singles players, Jay Segrist and Matt Payne, and two doubles teams, Lance Menuey and J.J. Fedderson, plus Jamie Kiewel and Lee Nelson. Coach Woody Vosberg noted that, "We began to build and dwell on state. The team did really well considering the doubles team of Lance Menuey and J.J. Feddersen was put together just before state. I have great expectations for the whole team next year." Coach Vosberg also pointed out that he will be building a bigger and more reliable schedule for the team. He will also try to get an Alliance Invitational. Coach Vosberg has hopes of adding Hastings, and two Cheyenne schools to the schedule, as well as cutting one of the Scottsbluff meets. lunior Lance Menuey practices his serving techniques for an upcoming meet.

Row 3: Cheryl Furman, Traci Lindsay, Melissa Lucas, Kelli Thomas. The girls' golf team ended an exciting '87 season, finishing fifth at District. "The girls played way beyond expectations,'' commented Coach Wayne Brown. The nine-member team played exceptionally well, finishing the season with an impressive total of one first place finish, four second place finishes, and four third place finishes at their meets. At the duals, the reserve team came back with a third and fourth place. Although the team did not qualify for state, the girls were equally impressed with their season. "We finished better than anyone really expected. I thought we had a great season, which proved to people that we take our golfing seriously!" added Kelli Thomas. With dreams of state in mind, the girls acknowledged that they will be back next year, ready for anything! Girls' Golfers Exceed Expectations Alliance golfer Cindy Chase is watched closely by her Scottsbluff opponent as she concentrates on her swing. Chase and her teammates had a successful season, surprising many by their remarkable outcome. Lora Howell, an Alliance girls' golfer, tees off at the Alliance Invitational.

Every day at 4:00, one could find nineteen boys at the Skyview Municipal Golf Course, practicing hard to reach their goals. This team, under the direction of Mr. Wayne Brown, had a very successful season. Many new records were set, and their main goal of qualifying for the state tournament was accomplished. This year's state meet was to be held in Alliance, but due to rainy weather, it was postponed twice and then moved to Holdrege, a more central location. The Alliance team was a bit unhappy for now they had to play on a course that was unknown to them. Despite all this. Alliance still placed ninth overall. Matt Shaner shot a 79 and placed eleventh and was the top finisher for Alliance. Many of the golfers received honors. Matt Shaner and Troy Hawk received All Western Conference. Brent Simpson placed second at the district meet in Sidney, and Troy Hawk finished sixth to lead the team to a second place finish and allowed Alliance to reach their state goal. Brent Simpson set a new record with a score of 78 at the Chadron Invitational. A new team score was set at the Sidney St. Pat's meet with a score of 382. Matt Lewis also broke a record with a score of 92 at this meet. All in all, the boys golf team had a great season. They definitely left their mark at the golf course by setting new records and achieving their goal of qualifiying for state. Boys' Golf 23"We'll be back!” Girls Advance to Final Game of District, The Alliance Varsity Girls' Basketball team accomplished many goals, ending the season with a remarkable 14-7 record. Alliance also beat Gordon and Sidney for a first place at the Holiday Tournament but then lost to Sidney in the final game of district to receive a second place. Vikki Curtiss and leralee Glass, both starters for the Lady Bulldogs, were named to the All-Conference team and also received an honorable mention on the All-State team."I think we all really worked well together as a team. No one carried the weight on her shoulders. Everyone pulled together to give us a winning season ' commented Lady Bulldog, Ronda Loutzenhiser. Even though the 'Dogs lost nine seniors, they are expected to make up for that with hard work and determination from underclassmen. Next year the Lady Bulldogs will be back, better than ever.

They ended their season with a 13-3 record. The players, as well as Coach Dave Sautter, felt good about the season. By stating, "This bunch of girls had an outstanding season and are ready to move on to the varsity level," Coach Sautter showed he believed in the girls 100 per cent. The freshmen girls' basketball team found out more about high school basketball. Although inexperienced, they held on through the season. Whether the coach was a big influence or not, Mindy Martinec felt that Coach Terri Freisen was the best coach they have had, "She brought us up when we were down; she helped us improve." The record of 7-5 satisfied the freshmen team. "Watch out for us next year!" was the feeling of most of the girls after the season ended. Handling the ball is one of junior Carey Firesteins strong points. She was one of five junior varsity players who suited up for varsity 26 JV Freshmen Girls' BasketballProve Their Ability to Succeed The junior varsity boys' basketball team, with a 16-1 record, were not intimidated by the varsity players. Four of the players on the varsity team were also included in the varsity line-up. Among these, junior Matt Payne summarized his feelings by stating,"I really felt good about the season. As a team we were confident in our ability and had to just go out and prove it." The boys are ready for next year, and are ready to carry on with the reputation the varsity boys left. Winning wasn't everything to the freshmen boys' basketball team. The boys kept their chins up and survived the season. Their record of 2-13 didn't look so good on paper, but in their minds it was good. "Even with the record we had, it was fun. I'm looking forward to next year and playing with more experience," freshman Pat Garrett commented. Sophomore, I ).

The squad, with five seniors, five juniors, and three sophomores, was able to overcome opponent after opponent on a seemingly unstopable surge to state. Of course, much of the credit must go to Coach Chuck Tank who really helped pull the team together and give them a winning attitude. But, the team members themselves were the people who worked as hard as they could and made the big plays when needed. As the season showed, a little dedication, hard work, and courage often pays off immensely in the end. Throughout it all, the Bulldogs definitely provided fans, peers, and adults alike with an exciting season which will be remembered for years and years.

The grapplers ended the season with a 3 win-8 loss dual record and one third, two fourths, one fifth, one seventh, one eighth, and one eleventh place finishes at tournaments. "Most of the team was still young and inexperienced during the major part of the year. Now that they have the experience, we can use that to work better as a team in the future ' commented varsity wrestler Jason Rand. Even though Alliance did not win the state tournament this year, the team will be back next year, ready to put up a fight for the title that they once held for three consecutive years. For Jeff Colwell, this was his third consecutive state championship, with the first two being while Alliance was moved up to Class A. Back in Class B this year. Alliance had seven state qualifiers. They were Kurt Pohlman, Scott Dobson, Jason Rand, Jeff Minnick, Jim Karell, Mike Weston, and Jeff Colwell. Out of these seven, three placed at the state tournament. Jason Rand received a fourth place, Mike Weston lost only his second match of the year for a second place, and heavyweight Jeff Colwell won the state title. Junior varsity grappler Carmen Littlehoop picks up yet another victory for the Alliance team. Even though Carmen won, the Alliance team lost the dual 26-32 to the Scottsbluff Bearcats. 30 WrestlingRaise your hand if you're sure! Mike Weston is sure as he picks up another win for the Alliance team. Mike had an outstanding year with a second place finish at the state tournament and a 25 win-2 loss record.

Jason did very well this year, qualifying for the state tournament with a fourth place finish at district and then moving on to win fourth place at state. Concentration is on the minds of the grapplers as they watch and cheer on a fellow teammate. The Alliance team did better than expected, finishing with a fifth place at district and a fourth place at state.

The relay went on to win first place at many of the meets, including Western Conference and here, at the Binfield Relays. 32 Girls' Track "Reach!” Anabell Pinedo stretches for the end of the sandpit in one of her best events, the long jump.Experience and Leadership Counts Experience and leadership was a strong point for the girls' 1987-88 track team. The team lost one senior to graduation from the previous year, while they gained six freshmen. Four main contributors to the team, considered as leaders, were jaimi Moravek, Dawn Brammer, Teresa Blaylock, and Rhonda Nemechek. When asked her feelings on leading the group, senior Dawn Brammer stated, "It's nice to know people look up to me as a leader." All around, the team had a lot of talent. It may have taken some time before the self-confidence began to show, but they pulled together when it counted. Jaimi Moravek said, "We had a lot of talent on the team and thanks to the support of our coaches, we proved it to ourselves in the end." The qualifiers for the state meet in Omaha were Dawn Brammer, who placed second in the discus, Jaimi Moravek, who placed fifth in the 400 meter dash, Mary Chouanard, Anabell Pinedo, Teresa Blaylock, and all three relay teams, the 400 Relay, 1600 Relay, and the 3200 Relay. Warming-up before an event, whether mental or physical, is crucial if one expects to perform well. Anabell Pinedo and Teresa Blaylock enjoy each others company while jogging a few laps, while Michelle Zumbahlen prefers a more quiet form of preparation.

With this throw, Mary placed second in the Alliance Invite.Competition Strengthens Although Small In Numbers, The boy's track team, made up of a total of thirty-one cinder-men, had a great season, especially with only eight returning seniors. Although they placed second at Western Conference, much of their talent was shown by freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors alike, many of whom did their personal best by improving their times, jumps, and throws. Talent was again shown at the district meet held here in Alliance where ten boys were sent to the state meet in Omaha, after finishing second behind Imperial by one and one half points. This was an improvement over last year's eight. The year ended on a very high note when the Bulldogs finished fifth at the state meet. T.J. Marx was a state champion in the 100-meter dash and placed third in the 200-meter dash. )im Thompson took a third place in the discus, and Thatcher Lamm came home with a fourth place medal in the triple jump. The boys definitely proved they had the "stuff" needed to make a strong, competitive team. Of course, much of the credit must go to the coaching staff, made up of head coach Steve Nelson and assistant coaches jim Kuehn, Rocky Almond, Pat Coffee, Sandra Pilfold, Val Jansante, and Lonnie Sherlock. After all, these were the people who really encouraged and supported the team and gave them the self-confidence they needed to do their best, no matter how hard it might have been.

Boys' Track 35Weather Plagues Girls' Tennis Team Progresses Under New Coach This year's girls tennis team practiced hard and played their best to make a name for themselves. The team was larger than last year's with twenty girls trying to reach their goals. Miss Elizabeth Frost was the squad's new coach. She was assisted by student teacher, Mr. Peter Dahlberg. With more members and much needed experience, the girls improved with each match. Unfortunately, nearly half of their matches were canceled due to poor weather. Probably the highlight of the year had to be sending six players to the state competition in Lincoln. Anna Forsstrom and Ronda Hofmann were the only ones to score for AHS as they defeated Crete in their doubles match, 6-0, 6-0. Unfortunately, they came back to lose to the girls from Wilbur-Claytonia, 2-6, 1-6. The girls finished in sixteenth place with four points. Coach Frost felt her team had a good year filled with enthusiasm, fun, and occasionally a bit of frustration when their matches were called off. They are looking forward to a more competitive year in 1989 and most certainly one with more cooperation from the weather. Playing their best in a doubles match, lessica Midgett, and Andrea Lair compete in a dual against Scottsbluff.

The 'Men' at Work could be changed to 'Students' at work instead. Students could often have been found hard at work with class discussions, tests, research, or writing in English, history, or perhaps a vocational class. Academics were possibly the most important part of Alliance High, and academics were definitely a sign of the time. A U.S. News magazine reported that over half of all high school graduates will pursue further education after 1987-88. Students began to realize that all of the homework, quizzes, and even tests were maybe not necessarily a waste of time, but rather a means of preparing for their futures and new signs of a new time that lay ahead. Many classes require students to give oral presentations Senior lohn Olson enhances his presentation by using "signs" or gestures. Academics 38 Academics Division Mrs. Pat Nelson's bulletin board displays a variety of signs for her students to read. The bulletin board not only has a calendar and class schedule, but also offers words of encouragement. Aerobics? No, it's just psychology class. Seniors jaimi Moravek, Vikki Curtiss, Vicki Dickenson, and Tammy Pierce take part in an activity to test the effect of physical movement on one's heart rate rx CAN Administration, Office, Guidance As the personnel that keep AHS men at work, the administration, as well as the office and guidance staff, set guidelines for the proper functioning of the school. Leading all administration was the school board, under the leadership of Superintendent Martin Petersen. Mr. Richard Boness, assistant principal, dealt with attendance, substitutes, and students who were sent to the office. Mr. Richard Stephens, principal, on the other hand, handled curriculum and scheduling. Many students think that administrators are cruel people that only wish to cause them grief, but principals have a tough and often thankless job. Without their careful leadership, the school would be a much less pleasant place. "Oh, you were at a rock concert,” observed Mrs. Linda Morrison with a wry smile. "I'm afraid that is not a school excused absence." Any one of the office secretaries could have said this during the course of the year. Many students got out of school for rock concerts such as 'Whitesnake,' which became the cause of much controversy. Administrators believed students should have been considered to be truant. Some students, on the other hand, felt that they should be excused from school if their parents wrote a note. Senior Joel Fought summed up the majority opinion by explaining, "I think that if parents excuse an absence, regardless of the reason, the school should respect it." Besides occasionally arguing with students over absences, office personel kept records and attendance on a new computer system that allowed for a much more efficient office. The guidance staff offered students support as well as information about colleges and scholarships. One of the most important programs that students took part in was group. In this support group students could share with peers about similar concerns in a structured environment. Mr. Bill Reno explained that "there is safety in a group that develops trust." Mr. Larry Moyle was available to assist any student that had a career or college oriented concern. Mrs. Linda Morrison prepares some XEROX copies in the new workroom located in the office. Very likely, she is running copies for a teacher since student assistants are no longer allowed to work school equipment. Mr Richard Stephens takes time to talk to Freshmen Lisa McMeekin and Beth Nielsen about their homework during first hour study hall. As frosh, its nice to know that administrators care. 40 AdministrationStaffs Keep Students at Work School Board members Bill Burgess, Alan Cornish, Ralph Aldinger, Dave Lehman, Micki Kimmel and Sherry Hitchcock make up the voice of the community on school-related issues. Mr. Bill Reno chats with Milisa Owens, sophomore, outside the Special Education office. Mr. Reno always seems to have a cheery hello for everybody. Mr. Richard Boness peers over the shoulder of junior Renee Bills as she works on her English project. Renee explains, 'I am writing 'Song of Myself' for Mrs. Schadwinkel, and is it ever hard!'' Superintendent Martin Petersen and Mr. Richard McCall, media specialist, share a lighter moment before a school board meeting Mr. McCall video tapes all meetings so that they can be broadcasted on cable channel sixteen. Office Guidance 41Special Friends Found in Special Ed Looking for a special friend? Many could have been found in special education. This program involved mentally handicapped students, as well as high school pupils who needed extra help to overcome learning disabilities. Students had opportunities to learn social skills, as well as participate in fun activities such as an occasional game of basketball or bowling. With the assistance of high school students, Mrs. Pam Cullen began teaching the second year of adaptive art. Weaving, finger painting, and creative pictures were used so that feelings and ideas could be expressed. During most of the day, the students were in class with Mr. Merlin Saathoff, Miss Elizabeth Frost and Mrs. Kathy Graham, learning basic math skills and English. All of the pupils seemed to share in Richie Shimp's enthusiastic view. "I love it! Everyone is so nice,” he said, which brought a smile of encouragement from Mr. Saathoff. As head of the department, Mr. Kevin Wilkinson saw that events and ideas were coordinated. His philosophy was that everyone should have a chance at a high school diploma. Through special ed, many students were fortunate to receive the extra assistance required to get through high school. Tad Drabbles and Kim Horsley know the value of a special friend. Close friendships are among the extra advantages of a top notch program. Richie Shimp displays a piece of art he is working on. He also enjoys making cards for his older brother, with whom he keeps a regular correspondence, as well as drawing cars and trucks Bill Boots and Deb Lambert take a break from one of the many classes they learn from each day. Deb likes to play basketball at home with the neighbor kids, and Bill loves to bowl 42 Special EducationKeeping Students at Work: Staff Library Sophomore Tom Simonson studies in library because he enjoys the quiet, relaxing atmosphere Besides reference materials, the media center also offers a variety of fiction. Mr Esmeragdo Nunez clears the lunchroom after the students have gone to their sixth hour class. Cook Nancy Wolzen is one of the members of the kitchen staff who works at the high school. Often times the cooks became frustrated with the inaccurate lunch count, but they always came through with food enough for everyone Staff members had much to contribute to the students of AHS. Library staff, custodians, the school nurse, and the cooks all had their own vital roles in running the school. In order to provide materials and assistance for independent research, Mr. Richard McCall supervised the media center. Aide Elizabeth Bourn was on hand to help students with any problems they might have had within the library. The media staff was also responsible for providing audiovisual materials for various educational supplements. janitors had what most would call a thankless job; however, the custodians at AHS found that a career as a maintainance person was not without rewards. "I loved to help the kids when they had a problem,” expressed Mr. Aldon Sample. He, as well as the other custodians, always had time to assist a student in need. School nurse Mrs. Carmen Harrahill, R.N. was available to students when they had a medical emergency. Her duties included screening the vision and hearing of students. Mrs. Harrahill was also responsible for providing any material concerning medicine that a teacher may have asked for. Because of new facilities at the middle school, the lunch program was slightly different. Kitchen staff brought lunches from the relocated central kitchen, and, therefore, a lunch count was needed. Second period teachers were given an extra five minutes of class for reading of announcements and taking lunch count. Unfortunately, many times the lunch count was not accurate because people seemed afraid to admit in front of classmates that they ate in the lunchroom, or they did not always plan to eat in the cafeteria until the last minute. As in years past, staff members were there to lend assistance whenever a student needed it. Thanks to their efforts, students of AHS could always have someone to count on. Staff Library 43Scientific and Mathmatical Minds For (hose students who don't understand a problem. Mr |im Hawk shows an example on the board explaining induction. Geometry often involves a lot of explaining. Even though many find it hard to believe, some students did and do enjoy math. The key to math class being fun was often simply one making up his mind that it was actually possible for math to be fun. Math classes that students chose from were basically the same as in the years before, but there were a few exceptions. For example, one new offering was Mr. )im Hawk's geometry concepts, introducing students to geometry. A new addition to the staff was Mr. lerry Hoffman who, during his first year here, taught algebra, introduction to algebra, and consumer math. Mr. Jim Kuehn's calculus class was a choice of two students at Alliance High, while a few others chose basic math taught by Mr. Dave Sautter, and still others selected math analysis taught by Mr. Wayne Brown. Although some students enjoyed taking math as a class, it seemed the majority did not truly appreciate its value. Mr. Hoffman best summed math up when he remarked, "Math would be fun without numbers." lunior Keith Sutton proves that math class isn't all work.and no fun. Although his math Sophomores lenny Bolen and David Blankenship are hard at work, attempting to get the assignment analysis class is tough he finds time for a completed on time Sometimes even trying hard isn’t enough to get the assignment done. chuckle 44 MathConstruct Promising Futures Sophomore Carri Nason attempts to answer a difficult question for a lab project in chemistry. These lab projects take a great deal of thought to answer. In earth science, many students saw a familiar face, but in a different area. For the first time in many years, Mr. )im Kuehn, known for teaching math, taught earth science along with eight-year teacher, Mrs. Teresa Nelson. They taught students about the earth and its fascinating wonders. Mrs. Nelson also taught another class called science topics. This class dealt with up-to-date topics such as AIDS, the composition of consumer products, and the Nobel Peace Prize. She didn't use textbooks, only magazines and lab projects. Mrs. Nelson explained, "We are being pioneers in science." Several other science courses were offered to students because of the two year requirement needed for graduation. Two of these courses were modern biology, taught by Mr. Bill Stout, and modern chemistry, taught by Mr. Bill Marchant. These classes were for students who wanted to take biology and chemistry at an honors level, which would also give advanced students the chance to gain college credit and prepare for college schooling. Mr. Stout and Mr. Marchant also taught biology and chemistry, respectively, at a general level, for those students not wishing to take the class at an honors level. Mrs. Pam Schnell taught general biology along with anatomy and physiology, the study of structure and function. Mrs. Schnell gave a brief definition of all the sciences. "If it MOVES, it's biology, If it STINKS, it's chemistry, If it DOESN'T WORK, it's physics." Together, the science courses offered any student a valuable opportunity to learn many things. Explaining the lesson by using a visual aid, her elbow, Mrs Pam Schnell lectures her fifth period anatomy and physiology class. She tried to make her class interesting by doing unusual things, for example, using her body as a model for class discussion. Sophomore lason Rand gives a nonconspicuous look at Mr Stout's attempt of a humorous joke in modern biology The class dealt with a lot of work, but the combination of Mr. Stout and his students always led to fun. Science 45Social Studies Proves Valuable History and social studies classes played an important role in the never ending struggle for success at Alliance High School. Although they were only required for two years, the history classes were important because the students learned more about the United States and the world as a whole. Their knowledge about past experiences helped them in establishing future goals. Renee' Bills commented that she felt history classes were important because 'The more we know and understand about the past and its people, the easier it is for us today to relate to and understand others." Besides the regular history classes being taught, there were also honors level history classes available. For the student who took a class on the honors level, his grade was scaled on a five point scale, rather than tfte standard four point scale. Miss Ellen Christensen, the world history, world geography, comparative religions communist worlds, and sociology instructor, remarked 'l would like to encourage more people to take classes on the honors level because it helps increase grade point averages as well as letting the students learn more about topics of special interest to them." Along with Miss Christensen, Mr. Chuck Tank also taught world geography, American history, modern politics, and American history research, an honors course. Miss Gail McMurtrey continued teaching current issues and psychology. Mr. Phil Schweitzer taught American history and economics. It was important for all students at Alliance High to take social studies because one could have gained better knowledge of past events and also could have learned about the new events that are happening in the world every day. School just wouldn't be the same without the many lectures that the teachers give throughout the year Mr. Phil Schweitzer demonstrates this during his first period American history class. Sophomores Heather Mittlestadt and Kristy Beagle take time out from Miss Ellen Christensen's world history class to laugh at a quick joke. Their class was often spiced with the quick wit of various other classmates. Dawn Brammer reads up on the latest fads and fashions during Miss McMurtrey's sixth period current issues class Each day, all current issues students read the Omaha World Herald. 46 Social StudiesFine Arts Creates Involvement Vi Drawings are just one of the various projects Mr. Mannlein's Advanced Art I class did this year. Marci Mitchell diligently works on her illustration of a plant project at the city park If students at A.H.S. wanted to have fun and also learn something, they headed for the fine arts classes composed of art, band, choir, and humanities. Through involvement in these classes, students learned a variety of different things. The art classes. Advanced Art I and II, general art, and studio art, taught by Mrs. Pam Cullen and Mr. Larry Mannlein, allowed the students to express their ideas through their many drawings and paintings. Sophomore Dawn Allen stated 'l like to look at the drawings hanging in the school. It makes me feel like I am a part of the art classes even though I am not." Mrs. Cullen, the freshman art instructor, commented she liked art because,"When I teach art, I am even more fulfilled as I am showing others how to share their ideas and feelings." This year, the band, taught by Mr. Dick Rischling, had been invited to perform in the summer of 1988 at the Independence Day parade on July 4th in Washington, D.C.. Sophomore Blanca Vazquez noted,"Our performances at competitions have gone extremely well. I think this trip is going to be really fun and also a great experience for us." Mrs. Oralene Hofmann headed the vocal music department by teaching concert choir, girls' glee, swing choir, and humanities. Freshman Tracie Waugh commented 'l think swing choir is really fun. It is a great experience working with the upperclassmen." "There are a lot of individual talents in the many choir groups," added Trista Bell. This year, the choir students attended a music clinic at Bayard in which they learned new performing techniques and also got critiqued on their performance. The fine arts classes had a positive effect on the high school by giving it a more colorful and lively atmosphere, which was a contribution that all students could benefit from and enjoy. Girls' glee does (heir daily warm-ups so (hal they have a clear sound and no one strains their voice. The instructor, Oralene Hofmann, accompanies them on the piano during class and also for performances. Fine Arts 47English Expands by Adding At Alliance High, English classes offered students a chance to learn new skills and develop insight, which could be used for future jobs. Of course, teachers in the English department played a very important role, for they were able to provide students with the knowledge needed and help with any problems that they might have had. This past year. Project English was taught by Mr. Steve Nelson, Mr. Ed Foy, Mrs. Pat Nelson, Mrs. Mary Schadwinkel and Mrs. Valerie Foy. Regular English classes were taught by Mr. Foy, Mr. Nelson, Mr. Terry Trenkle, Mrs. Nelson, Mrs. Schadwinkel, Mrs. Foy and Mrs. Janet Bandel. Finally, Contract English was taught by Mrs. Bandel. One new change in English classes this past year was the addition of more writing. Another change was the fact that teachers seemed to be moving faster through the material in order to expose students to more new and different material. However, this did not seem to bother most students. When Julie Karell was asked how she felt about English, she replied, "the teachers are really in tune with their classes and students, which makes English a lot easier." All in all, English classes had a very productive year with students not only learning a lot but also enjoying their classes as well. Janet Schoeneman works on questions for her literature assignment in English 48 English Troy Hawk and Matt Lewis try and quickly study for a "pop quiz."More Literature to Classes Students in Mr. Foy's English class take notes for an upcoming test. Mrs. Foy explains the answer to an essay question from a worksheet over a piece of literature. Tom Simonson works to devise a question while Russ Ceist appears to have his mind on other matters. English 49Students Learn About Life and Careers "Why are journalism classes important when one already has to take an English class each year? This was a popular question asked by many students when it came time to register for classes in the fall. Tori Marchant, co-editor of the Spud newspaper, probably said it best, "Without journalism classes, no one would have the opportunity to express their views, opinions and ideas to others. Through the Spud and annual staff, students learned to be creative and report events as they actually happened." Without journalism classes, where would the history of Alliance High be? journalism classes provided the base for those students interested in the challenges of becoming a novelist, newspaper reporter, or editor. Journalism and annual staff members didn't just have fun reporting the news or capturing students at embarrassing moments; it was a lot of hard work too. They had to learn how to take pictures, design a page, crop pictures to fit the sizes they needed, and to write copy blocks about various activities. Cropping pictures is necessary when making a page for annual. Cheryl Bolen demonstrates how pictures are cropped during class. These journalism students attended the Nebraska High School Press state fall convention in Lincoln during October. Front row from left to right is Vikki Curtiss.Vanessa Curtiss.and Amy Lowther. The back row includes Kristy Beagle, Anna Forrstrom, and Tara Redding Mr Terry Trenkle instructs journalism students about different aspects of making a newspaper There are many steps that are needed in order to make a newspaper look and read well. 50 JournalismThrough Journalism and Communications Angie Clark concentrates on her Spanish II lesson trying to understand the entire concept of the language Susan Rischling proudly displays a copy ot the assignment she is working on for debate class. Although it takes a great deal of work to get sub-stant ial evidence for debating, it is very rewarding. Everyone was required to take speech, a communications class, at some time during his high school career. Spanish, German, debate, and theatre were some other communica-' tions classes offered. Mrs. Teresa Nelson replaced Ivan Polyakov as the German teacher. During class Mrs. Nelson used tapes, handouts, films, and transparencies to aid students in learning the language. Mrs. Lila Fiebig taught Spanish, the other foreign language offered. Any Spanish student could attest to the fact that Spanish was lots of hard work because of daily quizzes, conjugation of verbs, and difficult tests. Andrea Lair, a Spanish I student, noted that "Spanish is an interesting class, but it is also a lot of hard work." Both German and Spanish classes gave students the opportunity to take a peek at a way of life, and a culture different from their own. Mr. Brad Schneider was the speech, theatre, and debate teacher. For the first time, the debate class tested its skills in several out-of-town practice meets. In speech and IPC (Inter-Personal Communications classes), Mr. Schneider used the PEER dynamics method of teaching. PEER stood for Positive Educational Experiences in Relationships, and was a method of teaching that helped students gain self-confidence, and deal with their feelings and friends Communications classes were hard work, but were enjoyable for many. More than likely, these classes will have a lasting effect on everyone that was involved in them. These German students are enjoying a visit from two of the Up With People representatives that visited classes. Being from Germany, these two girls gave the class special insight into the German culture. Communications 51Knowledge, Enjoyment Can Be Taking time out, sophomore Randy Osborn sneaks a glimpse at the camera while in computers. Computer students worked on learning how to write programs Ereshman Tracy Garcia concentrates on where the right keys are as she types a sentence in Mrs. Sue Dimmitt's class. Mrs. Mary )o Hoffman was the substitute during Mrs. Dimmitt's leave of absence. Several students in agriculture class display varying attitudes toward their homework assignment Students can take up to four years of agriculture at Alliance High. Drafting was a popular vocational course for some individuals. Senior Allen Peltz takes a look up from one of his many drafting projects. 52 VocationalFound in Vocational Classes Mr. Leonard Hartman’s attention goes to a student with a question in computers. Mr Hartman was responsible for most of the computer software within the school system Vocational classes at Alliance High School were an educational time as well as a time for students to get away from the routine of lectures and note-taking. These classes provided a valuable learning experience, which could be used in various fields of work. In vocational classes, many students enjoyed what they had learned. For example, one student in child development said her class was great because she got to learn about the birth and development of a child. The students were also instructed for events later in life. Another student in an adult living class said she liked the class because she learned about problems such as drugs, teenage pregnancy and marital problems and show to deal with them. Many interesting things were taught in the vocational classes, ranging from home economics to business. In the home economics division, students learned about techniques that are often necessary in later life, such assewing, cooking, adult living and designing homes. Other vocational classes included drafting, welding, agriculture, electricity, gas engines, house wiring and general shop. These classes taught the rebuilding and repairing of engines, and electrical theories as well as the fundamentals of drawing, design and woodworking techniques. Taking a vocational class taught many students valuable things needed in everyday life. Students that took a vocational class might have often found that what they learned would one day be helpful. Tori Hoxworlh seems to be having fun with a smile as she works with the iron in clothing and textiles. Tori admitted that although she was required to iron in class, she didn't wish to make a habit of it elsewhere Vocational 53Driver's Education: A Step Toward Safety The thought of their children learning to drive made many parents want to run and hide, but Mr. Val lansante and Mrs. Cheryl Lubash, driver's education teachers, should have helped rid the parents of some of their fears. Many students took the class because of the possibility of lowering their insurance rates. Students that enrolled in driver's education learned about traffic laws, sign meanings, and general driving skills. Despite what many students seemed to have thought, being a good driver was not necessarily being able to take corners at 60 mph; Mr. Jansante enforced this lesson in daily lectures. After the initial learning part of the class, students were then ready to hit the road. Mrs. Lubash helped Mr. lansante by driving after school with students who did not have study halls. Driver's education was a help to both parents and students. Although it may not have transformed students from bad to good drivers immediately, it was a step toward helping them. Mrs. Cheryl Lubash instructs David Hemple on how to change a tire. This was one of the things driver's education students needed to know how to do in case of emergency. iSathan Broderick is in the driver's seat with a confident smile that says "I'm ready to hit the road." Students had to drive at least six hours in order to pass driver's educaton. "Man, is this tough " Stephanie Shelmadine and Leah Reed are taking their final test in driver's education about the rules of the road 54 Drivers' EducationP.E.: Building Strong, Healthy Bodies Denny Stark does push-ups to build his strength in freshmen P.E. class. This was just one of the many exercises used in the conditioning process. Physical education and weight training classes were helpful in building healthy bodies and in teaching the basics of many sports such as bowling, volleyball, and badmitton. P.E. was a required class for all freshmen, but weight training was optional for sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Freshmen were greeted by P.E. teachers Miss Sandra Pilfold, and Mr. Pat Cullen. They did many things like take quizzes, run laps and run circuits. Circuits were a series of several different physical activities like running stairs and doing pushups and sit-ups. These were repeated at one-minute intervals during a class period. Mr. Skip Olds and Mr. Cullen were the weight training teachers. During the class students learned how to lift different weights and worked on attaining personal goals of increasing the amounts of weight they lifted. While this was mainly an activity for boys, the girls' interest in weight lifting greatly increased. With Ihe greatest of ease, lason Rand demonstrates how to do power deans in weight training class. These weights are used to strengthen muscles in the, legs and arms. Physical education classes were necessary for teaching students discipline and being the best they could be. It gave many students the extra boost they needed to get through each day. ,t Kelly Bergsing is captured jumping rope to warm up his muscles before lilting weights in weight training lumping rope gives aerobic exercise and loosens up the body P.E. Weight Training 55Students Receive Many Awards and Alliance High School hosted its Academic Honors Convocation in the high school gymnasium at 7 p.m., May 18, 1988, to honor those students whose efforts have won them high esteem in the eyes of their teachers and classmates. Mr. Dick Stephens began the program by welcoming those in attendance. Many awards were given and the program lasted almost two hours. Marcela Marnett, co-owner of McDonald's, presented Matt Morris and laimi Moravek with the Ray A. Kroc Youth Achievement Award. The Quill and Scroll Award, an honorary for students on the annual staff and in journalism, was received by Bobbi jo Braden, Wendy Fosket, Tori Marchant, Jodi Olson, Tara Redding, Anna Forsstrom, David Lowther, joei Bruntz, Cheryl Bolen, Shelly Thompson, Kathy Green, Katie Schnell, Vanessa Curtiss, and Vikki Curtiss. Other journalism awards were presented to Amy Lowther, Chrissi Nielsen, Tor Overli, john Olson and Doug McDermott. Student Council members were recognized and Brenda Dobson received the Most Valuable Student Council Member award for the past year. Next year's officers and representatives were also announced. The NASSP HERFF jones Leadership Award was presented to Vikki Curtiss by Mr. Stephens. Students honored with the Presidential Academic Fitness Award are, first row: Shelly Thompson, Vikki Curtiss, Len Vogel, Teresa Dye; second row: laimi Moravek, John Podhaisky, Tracy Bell, Kathy Green; third row: Dustin Darveau, Matt Morris, Matt Lewis, and John Olson. are Katie Schnell, Vikki Curtiss, John Olson, Amy Lowther, Dave Lowther, Vanessa Curtiss, Cheryl Bolen, Tor Overli, Shelly Thompson, and Kathy Green. Teresa Dye receives her Bausch and Lomb Award from Mrs. Teresa Nelson during the honors convocation. john Olson received the Century III Leaders Award and Tom Simonson received the Hugh O'Brien Leadership A-ward. The 1988 National Honor Society inductees were announced and received recognition. Many awards were also presented in woodworking, electronics, English, science, math, social studies, home economics, business, accounting, typing, mock trial, Spanish, drafting, and agriculture. Many students also received honor roll awards and academic awards. There was a great turn out for the honors convocation, which is an event most people consider to be one of the most important activities of the school year. 56 Honors ConvocationScholarships at Honors Convocation Scholarships DARCY ANDERSON- Departmental Scholarship from Mid-Plains Community College CHERYL BOLEN- Chadron State College Eagle Scholarship, Cooperating School Scholarship from Chadron State College, Box Butte County Home Extension Council Scholarship JOEIBRUNTZ- Cooperating School Scholarship from Chadron State College VALERIE CURTISS- President's And Music Scholarship from Doane College, Presbyterian Memorial Scholarship VANESSA CURTISS- Scholarship from Cottey College, Butler Scholarship From Doane College, Presbyterian Memorial Scholarship VIKKI CURTISS- Butler and Teacher Education Scholarships from Doane College, Local and State Elks Most Valuable Student Scholarship, Academic Scholarship from the University of South Dakota, President's Scholarship from Nebraska Western College, Presbyterian Memorial Scholarship DUSTIN DARVEAU- Cooperating School Scholarship from Chadron State College TERESA DYE- Regents Scholarship from UNL National Merit Scholarship to UNL, Chemistry Scholarship from UNL, Scholarship from the Nabisco Co.

Honors Convocation 57 Fine Arts Students who participated in fine arts were often found busy making or doing something, as if ruled by a 'construction ahead' sign. Individuals expressed a mood when mixing the colors for a painting, singing the notes of a song, performing a scene from a play, or practicing long hours for perfection. Fine arts is a universal language and is one that touched all people at Alliance High. Little did the many involved realize that their work became a sign of the times. The artist's painting reflected his feeling, the musician's melodies told of what was popular, and the actor's play related to an era of this time. All participants left some sign of their time spent in the fine arts classes of AHS. The universal faces of comedy and drama display their familiar conflicting emotions. This mural is one of four painted by Ms. Noel Ewing, a former Alliance teacher. i llkwc. Juncil With Support trom Nebraska Arts Council Presents OMAHA SYMPHONY w M. — IN CONCERT — Saturday, Dec. 12, 1987 7 :30 PM. North High Auditorium Alliance. Nebraska Creativity could have been considered a sign of the times. Senior Brent Mannlein works on being creative as he strives to perfect his clay model in his advanced art class. Fine arts could be experienced everywhere, including outside of school. Although signs like this were most commonly seen by students in the choir room, all people could have enjoyed this concert if they desired. 58 Fine Arts Division Fine Arts Division 59Varsity Singers Excel Concert Choir members are Chrissy Firestien, Tonya Todd, Rhonda Hammond, Jeff Colwell, Jon Lulow, Tor Overli, Joel Fought, Thad Stewart, Heath Lawrence, Dan Huss, Cheri Bachelor, Natalie Green, Dawn Allen, Becky Schnell, Andrea Lair, John Hall, John Olson, Travis Gasseling, David Blankenship, Mindi Schnell, Jody Bredenkamp, Janette Pollack, Ms. Oralene Hofmann, Debbie Duran, Sue Rischling, Tinka Livermore, Krista Turman, Mike Mullin, Gabe Gonzalez, Chad Cottrell.

Nathan Mink, Leonard Garcia, Nicki Schnell, and Jennifer Riggs. Concert Choir enabled students to let their talents go and learn more things in the meantime. Talented Ms. Oralene Hofmann was the director of the Varsity Singers. Varsity Singers were selected through auditions. The 1987- 88 school year's choir had as many boys as girls enrolled. Varsity singers performed in four concerts and competed for superior ratings at the district music contest. The highlight of this concert season was performing a forty minute complete setting of a Broadway Medley at the Fine Arts Festival. Students worked on warm-ups and learning new songs day after day. The reward came when students performed at concerts and were given a round of applause from the audience, showing its approval. Don't get the wrong idea; choir is a fun class. It's just that Gabe Gonzalez has already had a very long, tiring day. 60 Concert Choirin Vocal Sounds Learning to sing their own parts is one thing students are taught to do. Dan Huss, Andrea Lair, and Thad Stewart are singing four separate parts in a quartet. Ignoring his singing, B.J. Taylor takes a look at the camera.

All music is expected to be memorized each concert. Concert Choir 61Music Groups Keep Growing Strong The select high school swing choir, Sound Alliance, had a very busy year. They performed for four school concerts and numerous local community activities. The highlights of the year were the fantastic performances at the Chadron State College Jazz Festival, the Spearfish Jazz Festival in South Dakota, and the District Music Contest. Sound Alliance also performed a special 14-minute Broadway show, at Spearfish on April 11, which was complete with costuming and exciting choreography. With more members in Girls' Glee this year than past years, the girls achieved a uniquely large ensemble sound. Girls' Glee performed at the four home concerts sponsored by the vocal music department. This group worked for excellence as demonstrated by their performance at district competition. Unlike the other vocal music groups, a girl does not need to audition for this group. Any girl enrolled in AHS may enroll in Girls' Glee. These two groups worked hard in their efforts, and in many instances found self-satisfaction in their many accomplishments. Sound Alliance members are Tracy Stark, Gabe Gonzalez, Thad Stewart, Scot Hoover, Sue Rischling, accompanist Vikki Curtiss, Natalie Green, John Hall, Rusty Kendle, John Olson, Heather Mittlestadt, Tonya Trainer, Dan Huss, B.J. Taylor, Shauna Berry, Nicki Schnell, Valerie Curtiss, Angie Brown, Coleen Clark, Rhonda Hammond, Steve Stin-nette, and Cheri Bachelor.

Their enthusiasm made trips such as the one to Washington D C. possible. These stage band students take a break from their rigorous practice to prove that they have fun too. Clockwise from left is Nathan Mink, Dan Huss, Travis Gasseling, and Gabe Gonzalez. Although it sounds as if stage band and music parents have nothing in common, the truth is that one could not exist without the other. The stage band, along with other band members, planned activities and concerts. The music parents helped to organize the events so that everything would run smoothly without any major problems. Unlike the traditional marches played by the regular band, the stage band worked on a larger variety of music ranging from jazz to contemporary rock. Many hours of work went into making the music sound the best it possibly could. After the music was polished, stage band members strutted their stuff by playing for the residents of Good Samaritan Village. Stage band members and music parents proved that parents and children can work together for a common purpose. Without the music parents, out of town trips, fundraisers, and concerts would not have been possible. Larry Hudson, drums; Dana Holtz.substitute keyboard; John Burgess, bass guitar; and lesse Harris, timpani, were necessary items to the stage band. The keyboard and gutiar, in conjunction with the usual instruments, gave their music a special flair Stage Band Music Parents 63Flags, Majorettes, Marching Band This past year marching band was able to be very successful. By playing songssuch as "Marada," "Freedom," and "Trumpet Voluntary," they dazzled crowds with their fine performances at Sidney and Chadron. In their 1987-1988 season, students in marching band had a special trip to look forward to. On the first to seventh of July, they were able to go to Washington, D.C., and march in a national parade. Along the way they also attended a concert and were able to see the Statue of Liberty. To raise money for their trip, students sold items such as raffle tickets and belt buckles, and they even held a chilli feed. Finally, they put coupons on products at Shop n' Save where customers were able to use them for themselves or donate the money to the band. Teresa Blaylock summarized the year by saying, "Our trip to Washington, D.C. made all our hard work throughout the season worthwhile. Valerie Curtiss and Brad Rusk stand up out of the crowd wondering, 'What do we play next?", and "Hi Mom!" Students in marching band line up and wait in anticipation for the homecoming parade to begin 64 Marching BandDazzle the Eyes of Spectators When the AHS marching band, majorettes, and flag team stepped onto the field, they added color and background to the performance. The flag team's performances included field competitions, home games, and parades. During the summer, the girls raised money to buy new uniforms and flags. The group also raised money to accompany the band to Washington D.C. The girls were taught new routines by a flag representative from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. "I enjoyed the three days we spent with the UNL Rep. ' said Mary Chouanard, flag captain. "It gave the team time to get to know each other. The UNL Rep. really demanded more out of us than we expected." A majorette's job included keeping the band in line and in time with their music and presenting the American flag at home sporting events.Any sophomore trying out for the majorette position had to be a band member and attend a mandatory meeting for all girls who were interested. In the tryout, the majorettes taught the girls marching, whistle, field, and street commands, plus different types of directing. Whether one was a flag girl or a majorette, Carey Firestien summarized it best when she said, "You had to have responsibility, flexibility and pride in one's self.'' The majorettes of the year 1987-88 are, above, head majorette Angie Clark, junior majorette Carey Firestien, and sophomore majorette Tissie Bauer.

The AHS band had an unusually busy year with its many activities in pep band, marching band, concerts, and competitions. Along with usual activities, the band went to Lincoln to play pep band music at the state basketball tournaments. The band has been invited to march in the Washington, D.C., July Fourth Parade. Mr. Dick Rischling, the band director, has worked long hours arranging for the trip to take place. The band members have also been working hard to raise money to finance their trip to Washington, D.C., this summer. Among their fund raisers were a Mexican dinner and putting coupons on products at Shop-n-Save. These fund raisers have provided the members with a great deal of money to put toward their expenses. The band also entertained the community with their Christmas and spring concerts.

Her idea, along with the other students' ideas, dealt with the current time era and its events. " Gee, is that a long way down!" is all that Dawn Brammer can think about as she paints a mural. All Advanced Art II student's ideas were put together on the same mural. " Does anyone have a green pencil down there " is what Ronda Hofmann asks as Troy Shoemaker and Larry Sutton work on an illustration of a plant. )ason Sanchez carefully sketches an illustration of outdoor life, while catching some sun in the park among the flowers. This class used colored pencils to capture the exact color and structure of a weed or flower. 68 ArtStudent Creativity, Growth Art classes provided a way for many students to express themselves. Art was one of the few classes that built the right side of the brain. This growth allowed for a student to be extremely creative, when the brain was used frequently. Then students consistently produced improving work. Many classes were offered for students, such as the freshman art class. This class allowed for the new high school students to learn basics and touch on the history of art, which was taught by Mrs. Pam Cullen. General art was the next step in art, even though one wasn't required to take freshman art before taking this class. Students in the general art class were introduced to many new projects such as acrylic painting, pottery, charcoal figure drawing, perspective, and cartoon drawing in pen and ink. Advanced art classes were for students who were recommended by Mr. Larry Mannlein, the art instructor. In the Advanced Art I class, students, mainly juniors, had a large portion of art history, such as the Renaissance, taught to them. They also were introduced to glaze making for clay pots, oil painting and air brushing. The Advanced Art II students, who were seniors, were assigned numerous projects throughout the year. " Their skill was greatly tested." quoted Mr. Mannlein. A large project was the painting of a mural in the passage-way to the library. All students were taught various art skills and techniques which helped them to express themselves creatively. Andy Glassbrenner decides on the proper colored pencil he is going to use as he draws an illustation. Art took the class to different areas of town such as Sallow's Conservatory An oil painting of a buck in a mountain scene is what Paeter Schmidt is painting in the Advanced Art I class. For many of the students, oil painting was a new experience.

John has been a part of the drama department for his entire high school career As the "brains" of the operation, Mrs lerri Nyffler, Mr Brad Schnieder, and Ms. Oralene Hofmann provide direction for the production Mrs. Nyffler volunteered her sewing talents to make the costumes Daily practice is essential for a successful performance. Susan Rischling, a senior and fourth year theatre veteran, and lohn Hall, a sophomore, rehearse one of the wicked fairy scenes. ONCE UPON A TIME...... Sleeping Beauty, a children's musical, was performed on October 30 and 31, in the multi-purpose room. Mr. Brad Schneider directed the acting end of things, while Ms. Oralene Hofmann conducted the musical talents of the actors. THE CAST The characters were the typical fairy-tale type: a bad fairy (Natalie Green), a good fairy (Susan Rischling), a princess (Cheri Bachelor), her prince ()on Lulow), the king and queen ()ohn Olson and Shauna Berry), the page ()ohn Hall), and the fairy godfather (Dan Huss) made up the cast. THE PLOT AND SET Most people are familar with the basic plot of this popular tale, but this particular version featured some variations of the well-known animated Disney version. Beauty, the princess, was born to proud parents who ask the Good Fairy to be her fairy godmother. Taking this to be a slight and personal insult, the Bad Fairy casts a hex on the infant. The Good Fairy saves the day by altering the death spell to a sleep spell that would take affect sometime in the future. About sixteen years later, the Princess is given a rose with a 70 Fall PlayPointing an accusing magic wand is lunior Dan Huss.

Meanwhile, the Fairy Godfather informs a forlorn Prince Charming that he finally has a mission. Just when it looks like the prince will not take on the challenge because there are no dragons to fight, but only a wall of roses, the Fairy Godfather mentions that it is dangerous because he might catch a severe case of rose fever, thus convincing the hero to begin his quest. Despite many run-ins with the Bad Fairy, the prince finally reaches the princess and awakens her with love's first kiss. Hours of hard work and many Saturday afternoons were spent by crew members in preparation of the set, which included lights, sound, props, make-up, and costumes. Many people did not realize just how important crew members were in creating the mythical realm of this fairy tale. Some of the cast members were disappointed in the small turn-out, but they encouraged each other with the old saying, "The show must go on." Despite any obstacles they encountered... THEY LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER. Fall Play 71The Nerd Pays a Visit to AHS Hildegard Waldgrave. as presented by Mary Ellen C.reen, screams when she opens the door to find the nerd, Rick Steadman, played by lohn Olson, in a Halloween costume. For some reason Rick got the impression that Willum's birthday party was a costume party From selling tickets door-to-door, to dishing up the plates, to performing, any one of the cast and crew could write a book on the hardships of presenting a dinner theatre. Teen Problems Turn Inside Out lennifer Riggs. Angie Clark, Dan Huss, and Vikki Curtiss present the second situation in the series of one acts entitled Inside Out. This one, "Who?", depicts a teen that was trampled to death at a "Who" concert. Zach explains to the audience about his relationships with his mother, girlfriend, and teacher. For many teens, it is hard to adequately express their thoughts and feelings about life. In turn, many adults find it difficult to recall the hardships of teen life, and brush aside the tribulations of young people as something that will pass. The main goal of the spring play, Inside Out, was to act as a voice for the frustrations, the joys, and the passions of youth. Through the three one-act plays, the audience was to gain a better grasp on the realities of the world of today's teen. Mr. Brad Schneider, director, opened try-outs to middle school students to encourage them in future theatrical endeavors. Although there were some hard feelings among the high school dramatists who did not receive parts, they realized that the decision was made so that the drama department might prosper from the talents of future actors in the middle school. 72 Spring PlaysWatching an apple core turn brown may not be the most popular party game, but Willum is getting desperate to rid his home of Rick, so he suggests this diversion in hopes that it will bore the unwanted house-guest until he wants to leave I'rJ kill for some slop!" grunts Willum, played by Russ Ceisl, as Tansy, played by Chelie Hjers-man, holds him back In this scene, they are preying on the nerd's fear of pigs, hoping to drive him away Sometimes stress can get to a person, and Clelia Wal-grave, portrayed by Kathy Green, finds that sometimes all that will help is to break something. Tansy looks on with some reservation, but she can't help feeling a little sympathy for the harried woman Ah, spring! The season for unpredictable weather, spring fever, and new adventures. It seems only a natural time to attempt something fresh and new. It was in this spirit that the Drama Club set out to present it's first dinner theatre. Plans of the production began in late August by the officers. It was intended that the profits would be put towards a trip to Denver to see live theatre. Little did they know the amount of time, effort and heartaches this project would require. Auditions were held in late February, and rehearsals got into full swing in March. Because the director, Mr. Barry Lamm, and several of the cast members were still involved in speech team, practices were limited to three nights a week. Quality was of major concern, therefore, lines were required to be memorized a month before the show as a measure of insurance against every actor's nightmare - dropping lines on opening night. The story follows the misfortune of a yuppie, when the man who saved his life in Vietnam shows up for an extended visit. Unfortunately for this architect, Willum Cubbert, his savior, Rick Steadman, is the epitome of a nerd. Naturally, with such a roommate, some pretty bizarre things go on until poor Willum is driven to the brink of insanity. All of those involved in this production found that the hard work paid off in the end, and john Olson, who played Rick, wished to set the record straight once and for all by emphasizing, "No, I wasn't typecasted!" Spring Plays 73Speakers Seize Spot at State Senior Cathy Wagenknecht "reaches" for perfection in her humorous piece about a little girl named Eloise. Her winning smile and excellence in interpretation won her respect from many of her competitors. Angie Clark. Cina Green (hidden), Kathy Green, Cathy PeCoy, |ohn Olson, and Gabe Gonzalez share a good laugh to relieve some of the tension that can develop before a speech meet A close-knit group, like this one, enables each person to feel like an important part of the team. For most people, the thought of public speaking is enough to give them a shudder of horror. AHS speech team members, on the other hand, found that competing with schools from throughout Nebraska could be challenging and fun. junior Gabe Gonzalez expressed, ”1 never believed how many people there were to meet and how much work speech was until I was in it!" As an extra-curricular activity, speech team offered a variety of events in which to compete. Oral interpretation of drama, humorous prose, original public address, and duet acting were just a few of the nine available catagories. In order to perfect a piece, an orator kept the same cutting during the entire season, which lasted from November to March. Over the course of the season. Alliance speakers did very well. Celia Ramirez, sophomore, placed regularly in informative and oratory. Other frequent place winners were Susan Rischling, humorous prose, and those who made up the reader's theater that placed second at district, john Olson and Kathy Green took first at district in their controversial duet. All members of the team agreed that it took hours of work and good direction from Mr. Barry Lamm to make the season a winning one. Speech team members include (back) Paul McCracken; (middle) Celia Ramirez, laimie Long, Jennifer Hailey, Cathy Wagenkecht; (front) Gina Green, Gabe Gonzalez, lohn Olson, Kathy Green, and Cheri Bachlor. 74 Speech TeamAwards Given to Fine Arts Students Flag members for the 88-89 school year are Nicki Schnell, Celia Rameriez, Mary Chouanard, Blythe Turcotte, Tina Bakkehaug, jennifer Hailey, Cretchen Robb, and Heather Mittlestadt The recipients of the Thomas C.

These students are Justin Edwards, Andy Glassbrenner, Mike Kimmel, Rhonda Nemechek, Thatcher Lamm, Dawn Brammer, Dustin Darveau, Chelie Hjersman, Jill Hartwig, Nathan Grant, Nicci Neafus, Brent Mannlein. Mary Chouanard, and Melanie Drumheller At the Music Awards, Mr Dick Rischling announced the new majorette to be Dana Holz. Fine Arts Awards 75Activities Before school, during lunch, after school, and even in the evenings - a sign of the time was meetings. AHS abounded with meetings for its various clubs that seemed to function non-stop, as if influenced by a 'no parking' sign. Signs advertising upcoming activities were a common sight in the hall ways This sign advertises the MORP dance that was held in late january This sign', often seen on school calendars or stationery, is now seen somewhere else - the gym floor. Art Club members spent two days of summer vacation laboring over the painting of the gym floor. Some groups held their meetings weekly, on a regular basis, while others met only when it was found necessary. Some organizations were forced to deal with drop offs in membership, but some experienced a pleasant increase. Dances were sponsored, debates were spoken, contests were held, and fund raisers were undertaken as all the activities played a major role in establishing an important part of AHS- the signs of involvement. Belonging to a club usually meant helping with a fund raiser.

Row 3: Kathy Green, Jodi Bredenkamp, Vanessa Curtiss, Vikki Curtiss, |oei Bruntz, and Shelly Thompson. lodi Bredenkamp is hard at work typing her copy into the computer The Annual Staff has used the Typestar Program for three years now, as it makes the process of writing and transmitting copies easier As deadlines approached, members of the Annual Staff were hard at work putting together the final copies that would make up pages of the yearbook. "Sometimes it gets very monotonous when you are trying to meet a deadline, but we all pull together, and everything seems to get done,” commented staff member Kristy Beagle. Besides creating pages, members were also expected to sell advertisement spots to the different businesses in the community during the first month of class. Business Manager )oei Bruntz was in charge of billing the businesses after they bought the advertisements. She also put together all of the advertisement pages in the annual. Throughout the year, there were five deadlines in which different pages were to be finished. In order to finish a page, members had to create a rough draft layout page, write copies for the page, type them into the computer, and send them off to the Inter-Collegiate Press, Inc., in Shawnee Mission, Kansas. From there, the pages were sent back to be glued onto the final layout copy. Co-editors Vikki and Vanessa Curtiss proofread these copies and cropped pictures, as well as finished their own pages. "It gets really hectic towards deadline. I never think I'll get all of the pages finished, but most the time, it usually works out okay," remarked Vanessa. "It seems as though once you have made the first deadline, you've mastered the year. It is going a lot better this year since everyone is working hard and at the same time, learning a lot,” stated Annual Advisor Mrs. Pat Nelson. As the year came to a close, and deadlines were met, members really felt they benefited from the experience. "We all learned so much about how to put together a yearbook. I never knew it took so much time. Overall, though, the class was worthwhile,"summed up Karla Thompson. 78 AnnualSpud Impliments All-School Supplement Using knowledge and talents while being on the Spud Staff was one difficult job to keep up with as well as being fun. Students on the Spud Staff thought of completing deadlines and cropping the pictures as a sometimes tiresome but rewarding kind of fun. Members ot the Spud Stall are. back row: John Olson, Doug McDermott, Diana Varvel, Anna Forsstrom, Kim Sanchez, Tracy Macomber, and Mr Terry Trenkle. Middle row: Tori Marchant, Jenelle Johnannes. Angela Johnson, Bobbi Braden, Wendy Fosket, Amy Lowther, and Tara Redding. Front row: Amy Olson, Stacey Razo, Paula Snyder, Jodi Olson, and Gretchen Robb. This was the first year for the middle school and elementary school supplement. It is a project to utilize the Spud as a tool for the Public Relations Committee of the Board of Education. Initiated in the December issue titled "Paw Prints ' the two-page supplement featured news and features on the activities in elementary and middle school classrooms. Members of that committee submitted that information to the journalism class who completed the layout and paste-up. Copies of the Spud were then distributed to local businesses. Sitting down to read their own work was the biggest reward for the entire staff. The staff members tried hard to make everyone happy by producing as many papers as they could. They did all they were able to do and were happy for what they accomplished. Terry Trenkle helps Amy Lowther decide on the proper size for a picture Amy Lowther is the Spud Editor. SPUD 79FFA Set Goals; Benefit Others FFA set many goals for their organization. One of these was to improve their parliamentary procedure team. Through this effort, the team received a blue r ibbon in district competition. Another example of a goal set for this organization was to organize a safety committee. The chapter's committee painted safety signs and broadcast safety messages on the radio for Farm Safety Week Other activities included the ag fair, which the chapter held to teach local fourth graders about agriculture, contests, and promotions for FFA. This group also competed in judging contests where they were to judge such things as livestock, meat identification, and land areas. The Slave Auction was yet another activity this group performed. Members were sold to the highest bidder and had to work for eight hours straight. Selling fruit and cheese was an example of one of their fund raisers during the year. When Teresa Dye, president of this organization, was asked about her feelings of FFA, she stated, "Each member has the opportunity to grow and learn through their suspended experience, projects, judging contests, leadership workshop, and trips. There are so many opportunities in FFA that there is no limit to the goals that an individual or chapter can set and reach.’ Anna Forrstrom and lane Franklin give tender loving care to a baby goat at a livestock judging contest. FFA members attended many of these contests. Officers for the FFA organization include (front to back, left to right) Scott Taylor, treasurer; Paula Snyder, reporter; lane Franklin, secretary; Phillip Lee, parliamentarian; lulie Karell, vice president; Teresa Dye, president; and Brian lohnston, sentinel. 80 FFAEnthusiasm Is Prevalent In FHA m .

Kiss o' grams were two Hershey's kisses attached to a message that were delivered to a friend. "FHA (Future Homemakers of America) use to have an old-fashioned, faithful homemaker image. That image is a thing of the past. FHA is now acknowledged as a group that teaches its members more about life and offers hints on how to adjust to the real world ' reflected FHA President Tara Redding. The schedule of an FHA member was constantly filled with the state and district meetings and fund raisers that are old-hat to almost any organization. A new step was taken towards forming a more successful group. Regional meetings, known as Clusters, were attended in Denver. Clusters offered suggestions on ways to attract and keep members, and tips for making officers more efficient. Honey, chocolates, cookie grams and kiss o'grams were sold to raise money for these state meetings and also for group activities, such as taco night. FHA was triumphant in disproving former beliefs that members do nothing at meetings but sit around and eat. They showed everyone that they are industrious, talented girls, who will be a little more prepared to face the world. ★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★A These FHA members sold cookie o'grams at Halloween Left to right are Natalie Mundt, Shannon McKenney, and Kim Sanchez. FHA 81School Spirit Thrives Through Art Club 1987-88 was a year of great art. Many ideas put to work made outstanding differences in Alliance High. One new idea, the painting of the gym floor, was brought to the Art Club's attention and completed during the summer. The wall mats on opposite ends of the gym floor were also designed and painted by the art club. Later on in the year, the group was asked to airbrush a mural on a sheet of cloth for the Good Samaritan Village to use in a parade. This active club designed and printed 'Spirit Towels' to wave at football and volleyball games.As in past years, the Art Club members also submitted designs for a club shirt that was purchased and printed by them.These members then purchased a shirt and printed the chosen design on them. Members of the Art Club participated in various activities to gain points. Points that they attained were calculated by the hour-two for every hour they worked for the club, and one for every meeting they attended. Then, at the end of the year, those who had the most points were able to go on a trip to Denver's various art galleries. Mr. Larry Mannlein, sponsor of the art club, stated," We had a strong first semester in which we made interesting progress. This year we have the largest number of members on record, and some of the best ideas yet. We are looking forward to our annual trip, in which we eat fancy, travel fast, stay cheap, and have loads of fun at IMAX (an amusement park) and the art galleries!"

Cheryl goes over her notes with Vikki to evaluate the information she gathered during the meeting and make sure all the details are correct before typing the minutes. AHS Student Council members include: Beth Nielsen, Francoise Deniaud, Shelly Thompson, Cheryl Furman, Tor Overli, Allison Davis, Mindy Martinec, Mr.Bill Reno, Leigh Ann Murdock, laimi Moravek, Secretary Cheryl Bolen, President Vikki Curtiss, Vice-President Valerie Curtiss, Brenda Dobson, Susan Suprano, Tony Aruffo, Lisa McMeekin, Hope Strang, Angie Brown, Amy Olson, Teresa Blaylock, and Renee Bills. Not pictured is Treasurer Michelle Pearson. Members of the AHS 87-88 Student Council organized many activities including dances, dinners, and special weeks, to both make money and provide fun events for teachers and students alike. The council started off the year with the homecoming events, including a parade, the dance, and daily activities. As the year progressed, the council purchased a new stereo for soc hops, which cost $600. For a change of pace, StuCo hired "The Dynamics" to play for a soc hop. It gathered a large crowd of students and a few teachers. Student Council invited the two exchange students Tor Overli and Francoise Deniaud to be honorary members. They offered many fresh ideas to the council. The members of Student Council this year included only two boys. This, of course, meant the main goal for elections at the end of the year was to encourage male involvement. The most interesting experience for the StuCo members during the 87-88 term was to attend the state convention in Bellevue, Nebraska. It was a lock-in at Bellevue East High School where state officers were elected, learning sessions were held, and evening activities including movies and games were provided. A special project this year was to make everyone a valentine by cutting out over 700 hearts and putting everyone's name on a heart to be hung up in the school. There was also a dance held and computer dating lists were sold to students. During the dance the computer club held a kissing contest by placing a hand on a touch sensor to test how good of a kisser a person was. The year was finished off with Spring Fling and more soc hops. When asked about the accomplishments StuCo had made during the year, Cheryl Furman replied, "We've had a great year. We've carried on projects that are becoming school traditions and accomplished other projects that will benefit students in the future." Student Council 83U T U R E USINESS EADERS MERICA FBLA Members are Busy Planning FBLA was an organization for students interested in possibly majoring in a business-related area or simply for students wishing to develop skills needed in their future lives. In FBLA, students were also able to make new friends and meet new people through activities such as an exciting ski trip to Denver. FBLA also helped with the supporting of AHS activities, one of which was the annual "Salute to Seniors" dance. Of course, FBLA was not always easy; members of this club often spent much of their own time selling items such as candy bars to raise money. They also had regular meetings in which students did much of the planning and organizing. Needless to say, their sponsor, Mrs. )oni Schlatz, also played a very important part in FBLA as she sacrificed much of her own time and energy to help FBLA succeed. FBLA had a very exciting year, filled with many activities, and members worked together in hopes of making Alliance High a better place for all its students. Anna Forsstrom summarized the year by saying, "Everyone in this group supported each other and helped get projects off the ground, which helped make FBLA much more successful."

Caitlin Callup, and Troy HawkClose-Up, AFS Working for the Same Goal Close-Up and AFS both worked to raise money to send students to Washington, D.C. in April. Close-Up raised money to help send any of its members who were interested in government and wanted to visit the Capital. AFS raised money to help send foreign exchange student Francoise Deniaud to Close-Up in Washington, DC. Close-Up, which was sponsored by Mr. Phil Schweitzer, consisted of juniors and seniors. They raised money by selling chocolate candy bars for $1.00 in the month of October, working in the concession stand during games, and holding a garage sale made up with all the members' miscellaneous articles in the multi-purpose room in March. AFS, which is sponsored by Miss Gail McMurtrey, raised most of their money by selling M M's all throughout the year. Not only did they raise money, but they had other fun activities too. In August they held a welcoming picnic with the adult AFS group for Francoise. In December they made Christmas cakes and had a French Christmas party for the second, third and fourth grades at Central Elementary School, and explained some of the Christmas customs in France. Francoise Deniaud stated, "I would like to thank all the members of the AFS club who sold M M's, and also Jaimi Moravek for making it possible for me to attend Close-Up in April. It was a learning experience I will never forget." Both Close-Up and AFS helped students obtain a learning experience that some can only dream about. Both groups made new friends and learned something new about a different part of the world. Students attending Close-Up in Washington include Tara Redding, Chrissi Nielsen, Anna Forstrom, lerrold Neal, Dustin Darveau. and Heather Mittlestadt. Not pictured are Shannon Speer.

AFS Close-Up 85Computer Club and NHS: Showing Students at Their Best V The Computer Club is a continually growing organization at Alliance High. For the second year, they appeared at the Nebraska State Fair programming contest over Memorial Day weekend. Even though they weren't crowned state champs, they tied for third place. There were also many other projects the Computer Club was involved in. They wrote a computer dating program and along with the Student Council, sponsored a Valentine's Day dance, which made use of this program. They also considered sponsoring a computer contest for all Box Butte County schools which would enable them to show off their computer programming skills. Probably the highlight for the Computer Club, however, was running a program at the B-8 District track meet that was written a year ago by former member Barry Hamilton. It printed out and kept a continuous record of the many different events, heats, places, and team standings. This year's Computer Club members are Jeff Lundy, Kris Shrewsbury, Dave Sutton, Keith Sutton, Brent Gaswick, and Brian Schmer. Along with sponsor Leonard Hartman, the Computer Club officers Brian Schmer, president; Keith Sutton, vice president; Dave Sutton, treasurer; and Steve Price, secretary, led the Computer Club as they accomplished a lot. Members of the National Honor Society are Chrissi Nielsen, Kathy Green, Matt Morris, Teresa Dye, Dustin Darveau, Brenda Dobson, Troy Hawk, Cheryl Furman, Julie Ren-teria, Traci Lindsay, Vikki Curtiss, and Vanessa Curtiss. What exactly is NHS? Well, the National Honor Society is a student organization in which membership is based on character, leadership, scholarship, and service. Candidates must have at least a 3.5 grade point average. Teachers nominate students and then they are asked if they want to apply. If a student is voted in by the NHS teacher committee, they are then initiated at the end of their junior year and become a member when they are a senior. This year the NHS had 18 members, which was their largest membership ever. For the third year, they sponsored a tutoring service for any student who felt they needed help in any subject. Also on March 13, they visited the Ramses exhibit in Denver. The National Honor Society is a positive organization that benefits everyone involved with it. The officers of the NHS were Matt Morris, president; jaimi Moravek, vice president; Vanessa Curtiss, secretary; and Brenda Dobson, treasurer. The sponsors for the group were Mr. Leonard Hartman and Mr. Larry Moyle. These individuals helped lead the organization toward a year of success. 86 Computer Club NHSWorld of Work: Creating an Interest The World of Work Cooperative Training Program was a program that enabled seniors to have a job as well as go to school. The W.O.W. program was under the direction of Mr. Al Chytka. There were fifty-seven seniors at Alliance High that enrolled in World of Work this year. Students were employed in business and office, agriculture, trade and industrial occupation, retailing, food service, and health care occupations. In the World of Work Program, one was required to take four classes each with ten credits. During the rest of the day, they went to their job. While on the job, they earned ten credits if they worked three hundred and sixty hours within the school year. The program also involved a ten credit class to go along with the training. This enabled the World of Work students to have the required sixty credits during the school year. The World of Work Cooperative Training Program helped get students ready for "the harder times in life." It better prepared students for an adult working life, and may have started them down the road to a more successful world in the future. lamie Cole gets the surprise of getting his picture taken while he stacks shelves at Safeway.

The Nerd. "WATCH OUT FOR THE NERD, AHS!!'' For days this announcement baffled students and faculty until finally the mystery was revealed. The Nerd, by Larry Shue, was the play that accompanied the Drama Club's first major money-making attempt in several years -- a dinner theater. Needless to say, this endeavor took patience perseverance, and strong parental backing. The group's main goal for the year was to get parents interested and active so that it could become an energized organization. Thespians also invested their time on a trip to the state International Thespian Society's convention in Grand Island. A total of ten members and two advisors went and enjoyed all of the programs that were available. The main purpose of the trip was to introduce inexperienced actors to the many facets of drama. Some of the workshops included demonstrations on relating to other actors, get- 88 Thespians ting into character, and relaxing. Fund raising activities and profits from the dinner theater paid the way for the club's trip Denver. The main plans were to indulge themselves in a professional dinner theater, enjoy a swim at Celebrity Sports Center, and, as senior John Olson put it, "most importantly, go to the malls!" Under the leadership of President john Olson, Vice President Kathy Green, Treasurer Alice Ruble, Secretary Krystal Dillard, and Activities Chairperson Kay Wilson, the club experienced many activities. Together with Mr, Brad Schneider, sponsor, and Mr. Barry Lamm, volunteer, the club brought in fifteen new members, held successful fund raisers, and once more became a vital part of AHS.A-Club Booster Club Support AHS For many years the A-Club and Booster Club have worked together to give certain benefits to the students. The A-Club was made up of all the letter winners. These students had a busy year working in concessions at home games and selling Valentine's Day candy to raise money for bleachers in the new Middle School gym. Mr. Skip Olds, sponsor, stated, "It was a very rewarding year working with the A Club. The senior athletes did an excellent job on the field and court, as well as the classroom." The 1987-88 Booster Club showed their pride and support through various activities. Such activities included the selling of tickets at home games and matches. The main fund-raiser for the year was the sixth annual Big Blue Bar-B-Que. A new addition to this event was the bed and wheelbarrel races, which provided fun and excitement along with extra money. Besides the financial support, the Booster Club helped out a great deal by cheering on and supporting the AHS athletes. Linda Roberts, treasurer; Cathy Segrist and |ohn Segrist, vice presidents, Dan Contorts and Donna Contorts, presidents; and Kathy Bell, secretary; are the Booster Club officers. Matt Lewis, President Troy Hawk, Sponsor Mr. Skip Olds, and Sergeant-at-Arms T.J. Marx. Mr. Dan Contonis, president of the A.H.S.

Not only did they raise the spirits of the fans and players, but they also entertained us with spirited half-time performances. The varsity squad received the chance to compete at the national competition held in Anaheim, California. These three squads set their goals high and achieved what they set out to do. Jennifer Saum and Matt Moore execute a shoulder stand as one of the cheerleaders' partner stunts. These stunts made their cheers more daring and exciting. The 1987-88 Alliance High cheerleading squad includes Kim Hofmann. Stacey Razo, Heather West, Dusty Crawford, Chelie Hjersman, Jennifer Keifer, Charity Chandler, Candie Zimmerman, Tinka Livermore. Rachelle Wacker, Shelly Shannon. Jennifer Saum, Carri Nason, Amy Roberts, Shawn Grant, Caitlin Gallup, Lisa Dufek, Amy Razo, Russ Geist, Tori Hox-worth, Ranae Reynolds, Leigh Ann Murdock, and Matt Moore Through hard word and a lot of cooperation the squad had a fantastic season.

Chrissi Nielsen, Tori Marchant, and sponsor Miss Leha Uehling After establishing themselves as an important part of AHS, the Pom Squad dazzled their audiences with flashy pom pon performances and intricate dance routines. The Poms were able to hold their audiences with novelty routines to "Twist and Shout," "Splish Splash ' "Dragnet," and "lailhouse Rock." After only two years, the Poms have developed a unique style and a reputation for excellence. Spectators at sports events found they enjoyed half-time as much as the game itself. To celebrate sixties rock music, Coleen Clark and Cheryl Bolen hit the beach to the melody of "Twist and Shout,"(right) while Shelly Thompson dresses the part of Elvis Presley to perform to "Jailhouse Rock." The medley routines entertained the audiences with just a touch of humor. To entertain the shivering crowd at an Alliance home football game. The Pom Squad performs a routine they learned at a pom camp in Boulder, Colorado. The girls could be counted on to provide dazzling entertainment for crowds at home as well as at away games. Poms 91People The diverse blend of individuals who were the people of AHS made up the most important sign of 1987-88. The principals, teachers, and staff pushed to keep up with the times. Each day students and staff alike were together tackling many problems. Staff members worked for total unity and a peaceful learning environment. The freshmen became familiar with high school life. The sophomore class suffered from a lack of enthusiasm, but began a turnabout as summer and thoughts of being an upperclassmen fired most of them up. The juniors, as always, stewed an fretted about prom; but more importantly, showed their class spirit and desire in the class competitions at pep rallies and in the food drive. The class of '88, the seniors, worried most about graduation, but many felt a "special" class unity amongst themselves, and others would often agree. The people of AHS allowed it to operate, and while individuality was a sign of the time, both students and staff strove towards support that proved beneficial to all who spent their time at AHS.

Biology, English 10, and driver's education were also listed by many to be an indication of the tenth grade year. For others, activities such as wrestling, band, and art club filled the year full of memories. Because of the tremendous cost for prom, each class had the responsibility of raising about two to three thousand dollars. Although they did not have too much luck with their fund raisers, many sophomores hoped that their junior year would bring about greater monetary success.

The juniors had their first try at being upperclassmen. Gone were the days of fighting for rights and being known as "rookies." As a class, they began to pull together and exercise teamwork instead of being in small groups. Their efforts were rewarded by winning a spirit award at the pep rally and also the food drive for the needy, juniors put forth a lot of effort in their rivalry with the competitive seniors. The enthusiasm and effort exhibited by the juniors was probably not short-lived. Next year when they become seniors, these same characteristics will certainly have an effect on everything that is said and done and will in some way touch everyone in the student body.

The juniors are successful in creating a ballroom atmosphere in the dance area in which the couples could dance. Shelly Thompson, |oel Fought, Mark Behm and Angie Brown relax to a slow song and enjoy the evening at the junior senior prom. As the school year drew to an end, the seniors started to wonder what the junior senior prom would be like, while the juniors were frantically getting the preparations for prom organized. Before anything could be decided, the juniors had to raise the money through many different fund raisers to pay for the numerous decorations needed. After everything had been prepared and approved, the juniors then presented a prom that would dazzle the seniors. This year's prom had a change in appearance. The ceiling was enclosed to give part of the gym a ballroom effect, and the remaining part was a garden. The theme for the 1988 junior senior prom was "Till the Clock Strikes Twelve." Metallic blue and silver were used to give a starry night impression. The decorations used to help set off the different areas were a lighted clock, a moon, a gazebo, and 30 hand-stuffed bushes. The music was provided by " Mid-West Express" out of Rapid City. For the 150 couples who attended the event, April 16, 1988, will always be a lasting memory of their high school years. Prom 115As freshmen were always told by seniors that time flies by fast, it was no different for the class of '88. The senior class officers were )aimi Moravek, president; Troy Schnell, vice president; Leigh Ann Murdock, secretary; and Brenda Dobson, treasurer. As usual, seniors filled out scholarships and applications, ordered their announcements and caps and gowns, and had their senior pictures taken. A much observed sign of the time was "Class of '88." The class of '88 was a class that was always filled with spirit and pride. The seniors blazed many new trails for future classes to travel. The more vocal class members often started the first class chant.. . "eighty-eight, eighty-eight, eighty, eighty, eighty-eight." The names of many members of this class remain in halls and in teachers' minds as leaders and fine examples of the best of Alliance High. This class established standards of excellence in all areas of school life; academics, sports, music and speech. Most of all, the lasting friendships that developed among the class of '88 were the most treasured sign of all. k Bob |. Ackerman Ami Kaye Adam lustin N.

Students whose names do not appear in this index are either listed as General Course' or did not provide the staff with the needed information Senior Index 131Ads When driving around town, one might have seen a "Good Luck Bulldogs" message on the Pizza Hut marquee or perhaps a "Go Big Blue" sign in the Simonsons window. Most activities required support, and area businesses provided much support of Alliance High School. Whether a business supported an activity, an athletic event, or a class, its support was essential. The 'signs' on the ad pages of a yearbook are necessary and vital. Perhaps a student thanked a business by eating at its restaurant, or purchasing clothes at its store, or maybe in some other way, but the support of area businesses was felt by all students and staff of AHS and was appreciated. Many students headed for the 'sign' that said "Pepsi" after school in hopes of quenching their thirst. Although the pop machines were locked during the day, they still seemed to endure plenty of use. Working was definitely a sign of the times for some students. Senior laimi Moravek takes part in a teacher-cadet program that allows her to learn what working as a teacher is really like.

Index 163Exchange Students Enjoy Stay at Alliance With the help of Francoise Denauid and Natalie Mundt, Tor Overli has successfully removed all the excess fat from the mink and studied the muscle and skeletal construction of the mink which they dissected in Mrs. Schnell's Anatomy and Physiology class. Tor Overli, an exchange student from Norway, and Francoise Denauid, an exchange student from France, attended AHS during the 87-88 school year. Tor's host family was Sheila Kimble and her three sons, while Fran's host family was Mr. and Mrs. |im Dickenson and their daughter Vicki. Tor revealed through interview that his favorite school subjects were math and science. Fran stated her's were art and anatomy and physiology. While in the United States, both said that their favorite tour sight was California. Tor also admitted that he liked Texas too, and Fran liked Minnesota and wanted to see Yellowstone National Park. Fran expressed that her favorite American saying was, "It must be in the air!'', "It's wierd!”, or "just kidding!" and Tor's was, ”1 don't know?!?" Both Tor and Fran felt that their favorite pastime was to spend time with friends or read a book. After returning home, Fran planned to attend the University of Medicine in Nantes where she will study medicine. Before she left the United States though, she had one thing she always had to remember and that was to watch her weight, because "we eat all the time here!!' (meaning the United States) When Tor returned to Norway, he planned to further his education by attending either a college or a university some where in Norway and most likely study math or science, but before he left he was going to travel more to "see this wonderful country."

Prices ranged from $15.00 to $20.00. The Bulldog is a member of the Nebraska High School Press Association (NHSPA) and the International Society of Quill and Scroll. The Annual sponsor was Mrs. Pat Nelson. The editors were Vikki and Vanessa Curtiss. Business Manager was Joei Bruntz. The cover was designed by Tate Adams and Chris Contonis. The end-sheets were courtesy of Educational Oasis, Feb. 1988, Good Apple, Inc. The eight divisions of the 1988 Bulldog were compiled by these Annual Staff members: Cheryl Bolen, Joei Bruntz, Vanessa Curtiss, Vikki Curtiss, Kathy Green, Shelly Thompson, Jody Bredenkamp, Marci Mitchell, Rhonda Nemechek, Leah Reed, Kristy Beagle, Hope Kamerzell, Mindi Schnell, Lisa McMeekin, and Karla Thompson. The photography was done by: Mary Chouanard, Tor Overli, Katie Schnell, Jenelle Johannes, Brian Moomey, and Janice McCall. Keith Sutton was responsible for transmitting all pages. Gary McMeekin of The House of Photography was responsible for the group shots in this book. Worley Studio and the Alliance Times Herald also furnished pictures for the book. Tom Simonson and Larry Hudson both learn it's safer to drive inside. In February, cheerleaders pulled out their shorts for the ride to California. Stacey Razo s last thoughts seem to be, "I hope it's not this cold in California." Mark Reed attends the wrong class.......again. Closing 165AHS People-The Biggest As signs of spring began to appear, anxious students and teachers looked forward to summer - a time for vacation, relaxing, and for summer jobs. Each person at AHS could stop and reflect on the signs of the time, and while each member probably had his own thoughts and memories, some signs most likely left their mark in all minds. Perhaps one remembered the hallway mural done by the art club, the first ever Post Prom party, the announcement that St. Agnes would close next year, or the Iran Contra hearings. In 1987-88 detention at AHS was abolished, turning lanes were added to a few streets in Alliance, and the stock market crashed. Each of these events or "signs" became a token of the people of this particular time. Next year, lots of faces and classes will have changed. St. Agnes students and Alliance High students will be forced to blend together and become a whole. The administration will have changed as a result of the resignation of Principal Dick Stephens. One thing, though will always remain the same for each individual who attended Alliance High School. Each student and teacher will have his impression of AHS and his time spent there, and whatever the impression left in one's memory, all found their place at AHS in 1987-88 and established themselves as Signs of the Time. Often not seen in the pictures because they are always out taking them are the members of the darkroom staff. They include jenelle lohannes, Tina Rask, lanice McCall, Tor Overli, Katie Schnell, Brian Moomey, and Mary Chouanard. Dissecting in anatomy can be fun for some and not so fun for others. Here Lisa Dufek doesn't seem to mind cutting at this creature, but Renee Bills seems to be a little more apprehensive about it. "Oh, I just can't look!" Anna Forrstrom seems to say. Actually, Anna is participating in an activity in anatomy class "Ah, What's up. Doc?" Kristin Pe-. terson appears to be conversing with the camera while watching a basketball game 166 ClosingSign of the Time SCHOOL Coach Val Jansante, Vanessa Curtiss, and Vikki Curtiss focus intently on the junior varsity basketball Ireland, a football student manager, tends to the ice game. Varsity players always watched as much of the junior varsity game as possible before going on a hot day of practice, to get ready for the varsity game Jenny Moyle seems to be totally engrossed in Brian Moomey's demonstration Brian is showing prospective annual staff photographers some basic photographic techniques.
