She recalled the endless smell of tar, the jack hammers, the construction supplies in the center of the halls and all the other loud noises that went along with the remodeling of the school. But when the dust cleared, her old memories disappeared and were replaced with new ones - pep assemblies, games, Spirit Week, Homecoming, the Halloween carnival and That Altus Band's annual haunted house Summer was at a close and a feeling of excitement floated in the air The school building had changed but the teachers still assigned homework on the first day With a sigh and shrug of her shoulders the student grabbed her textbooks and headed down the hall The dust had finally settled Send-off speeches boost the spirit for the game ahead.

At a crucial moment of the football game, Miss Bulldog, Erin Young, and Jason Wall stop to watch the action. It isn't often that fans get to see whose face is behind the mask. Opening Helping and The Dust Cleared As Students Reachea' Out On the hot seat of the ,laycee's dunk tank is Barbie Plummer. As a cheerleader, she knows how hard fun- draising can be, so she donates her time with a smile. In a whirlwind of activity, Bulldog stu- dents served their community with hundreds of hours in volunteer work. The dust cleared, and a big "thank youw was left over for the citizens of Altus. This effort, in a sense, returns the support students receive each year during candy sales, gift wrap orders and other fund raisers. The high school is fortunate to have the local community backing them in every phase of student life, making it possible to continue with "Whatever Altus Schools do, they do well." Besides, volunteering to help is a student specialty. Earning his Eagle badge, the highest rank for Boy Scouts, Tommy Ferenczhalmy raised severe! hundred dollars for the SAFE project that benefited the local shelter for teenage boys. He coordinated the efforts of other volunteers and directed the gathering and selling of donated items. Tommy said, "It was a lot of work, but it was worth it, a lot of people hclpedf, Reaching out in a big way to help their community were the Candystripers who gave time this summer at Jackson County Me- morial Hospital. ,Iana Shelton, a candys- triper, said, "Some worked up to twenty hours a week every week with the programf' Still others raised money for their church groups who in turn helped others.

Varsity choir members earned money for their annual trip and at the same time, provided the entertainment usually found in big cities. The days passed by swiftly because of the many activities.

But the scorching sun of May got the better of students. "All I wanted to do was hit the lake and catch some rays." said Kristi Kidwell. Waterskiing, swimming, and sun bathing were among the favorite things students liked to do with their time. Students could always been found at the lake on any day of the week. Summer meant no homework, sleep- ing late, and just plain doinz what vou tl 0 Keeping Cool wanted. MI didnit do too much this summer and that's what made it so funf, said Tiffani Johnson. But for some students, summer meant hard work. For the sophomores in band, school started a little bit earlier than expected. "We had to be at school at 8:00 a.m." said Judy Norton. The turnaround had come. School started again. "Now the school work begins and the fun boils down," said Tammy Thomas, in a subtle tone of voice. Q As a lifeguard at the city pool, Kristi Southall spent her spare minutes this summer writing letters to faraway friends.

Student Life 'M . ..,. .rt V,.. no fig ., .- -3 Q 1 Goofg Concociions Not Just For Children Dress up wasn't just for children. At least for one week out of the school year, students joined in the fun. Mom's high heels and Dad's outdated clothes were all the rage, whether it was for a nerd outfit, Army Day, a Sixties costume, or some other goofy concoction. Sharla Kendrix said that she went through her grandma's closet for her costumes. Melissa Jeffries said, "Spirit Week is exciting to dress up - only because you can be yourselff' Everyone was a part of the fun in their fanciest clothing or wildest outfit. Who could forget Matt Muller as Hitler or Luis Duncan as a war protester? Remember Kim Willis as the ace pilot who couldn't get off the ground? Or Karen Smades, the jester who waved the cane? Or the one who caught everyone's attention, the drill sergeant, Eneth Hancock? An original touch for Sixties Day was the senior protests before school. Stu- dents marched around the building, waved protest signs, and chanted "make love, not war," all in good fun remem- bering a time when their fathers might have protested for real. Mary Ortega said, "I felt our protest march around the school was fun. lt really helped get us all into the spirit." Instead of using brushes and paint, students grabbed a bottle of white shoe polish. Bobbie and Tammy Higgins watch for people as Melissa Case puts a final touch on an unsuspecting person's car. Spirit was on the rise during Blue and White Day. Mr. Roy Lamar took the winners' names before Karen Smades could crack another joke about sophomore Wesley Smith after taking first place in the competition. Student Life Tammy Stepped Forward Homecoming is a special time for eve- ryone. Among the competition for Spirit Week, there is a big decision for the student body to make. Who will be the senior girl chosen for Homecoming Queen to represent the school? Most stu- dents look for a girl who was active in school activities, had good grades, and was a nice and caring person. The three candidates Tammy Packard, Michelle Willis, and Kerrie Brinkman, all lit this difficult mold. These girls had a frightening task ahead of them. They stood in front of the entire student body and gave a speech over what Altus High School meant to them. Tammy told the audience how much she loved Altus and the high school and told of how shc would remain here even though her family was moving. Kerrie Cold weather forces the candidates to watch the game wrapped with a quilt as they wait for halftime and the crowning ceremony. 12 Homecoming A Night To Remember sang a popular song rewording it with her own feelings about high school. Michelle recited the poem UA Dream Deferredi, and gave her appreciation to the school that her dreams had not been deferred. That night the candidates were intro- duced again - this time on the football field. Everyone nervously waited. Then the announcer said Hand the 1987-88 Homecoming Queen is . . . Tammy Pack- ardln A tearful Tammy stepped forward to be crowned by cheerleader Kim Willis. When asked about how she felt on being chosen Queen, Tammy said, "It was a great thrill. I want to thank the student body for making this year memorable and special. l will never forget itf, All in all, everyone would agree Homecoming was a night to remember. Following a long day of Homecoming activities, Kerrie Brinkman and Craig Niblett smile for the well-wishers crowding the field after the ceremony. .WA - 3329.2 , 7 . W 'Fw of K' if '-4'A b !

Disbelief and shock register on the face of Tammy Packard as her name is announced as Homecoming Queen. Kerrie Brinkman and Wade Douthit are every bit as excited as the newly named Queen. Homecoming 13 Mob Mania Bulldog Spirit At Its Best The dust began to clear in the room as students filed in the door, taking their seats. The band played and the cheer- leaders jumped on stage to lead in sup- port ofthe school. Sophomores vividly remember their first pep assembly in which they were relentlessly picked on. c'The thing I re- member most about my first pep as- sembly is that I didn't know what was going on and we were made fun off, sophomore Malinda Wille said. Beth Chananovich thought the sophomores de- served to be teased. 'sThey wouldnat even stand up for the Pledge of Allegiancelw she said. Cheers were a major part of all as- semblies. Kory Terry and Marcie Sim- mons' favorite was HAH My Life I Wanted To Be a Senior." Simmons said, MI sing it with pride because I remember sitting in the back of the balcony wanting to sing that so bad! Now I can." '6Battlecry', was the cheer when three classes competed to see who was the loudest and most spirited. But then all the classes united to shout "V-I-C-T-O-R-Y, That,s the Bulldog battle cryll' The band provided familiar tunes such as "Louie, Louie" and "Hey, Baby" which inspired everyone to sing. The drummers were a favorite attraction. Stu- dents could feel the rhythm as they came down the aisle beating out "Jungle Bun- nyf' '4The drums are the best part of the whole assembly," Nora Villareal said. Simmons agreed, "I love the drums! They're the most exciting part because you can feel the spirit in the air." As the band played the alma mater and the cheerleaders joined hands, students knew another pep assembly had come to an end. 5' 5' Band members belt out a rendition of "Hey Baby" while students sing along, clap hands, and sway back and forth. Cheerleaders showed the student body who they would be if they weren't cheerleaders. Melissa Kendrix would be Bobby Sullivan and Dina West would be Junior Dash. 14 Assemblies , X Crowd enthusiasm heightens as the drummers march down the aisle to the beat of "Jungle Bun- N ny.

Kory Terry said, g'The skits made fun of the other team and made them look weak which encouraged us to want to win." April Harrell said, "They promote school spirit and help people realize that there's a game and to come out and support the teamf, Everyone had their favorite skit. Marcie Simmons liked the Time Machine the best "because Jason Wall is a natural bom actor and knows how to make peo- ple laughf' Nora Vi1lareal's favorite was the Chickasha skit. 'flt was good because it went along with the mascot of their school - chickensf' she said. Other fomls of entertainment besides the skits were provided by the drill team and rock band. The rare performances were warmly welcomed, but the skits remained vividly in the students' minds. KM.-2 ,,l- ,t L-2 si ?tf M S -v ff J 'i - Skits were the most prominent part of assemblies.

Students join hands and sing the Alma Mater, which is a big part of every assembly. Dawn Wille, Michelle Cross, and Sean Wilcox clasp hands to show their Bulldog pride. Assemblies In the Spirit of Things As Christmas approached, Varsity Choir presented their annual Dinner The- atre. The theme was "Santa's Work- shop." and the foyer of the cafeteria was decorated like the North Pole and Santais workshop. The cafeteria itself was el- egantly decorated with Christmas wreaths. red bows and candle light. Before the entertainment, a large crowd was treated to dinner that was served by the choir members. The menu included chicken kiev, hot rolls and mys- tery pie. The food was-just a beginning to an exciting evening. With seventeen solos and special se- lections, Dinner Theatre was a hit. HToo Darned Hoti' was performed by the voice class with added choreography. The Var- sity Choir performed "Surfing in the USA" in jams and T-shirts with dance choreography. As they sang HYellow Pol- ka-Dot Bikini," they tossed bikinis to the crowd. and a special visitor, Santa Claus, appeared as they sang HThe Night Before Christmasf' Every song was a high point and received applause of appreciation from the audience. The success of the evening wasn't without hard work. Practicing, preparing and decorating is a part of Dinner The- ' l Santa S Workshop ater. Mr. Kenneth Cox, students and par- ents worked from Monday through Sat- urday nights putting the program together. Most nights they worked from seven until midnight. HPractices are a killer, but we have to have them to be good. This year we had to unload citrus fruit after one practice and didnit get home until after one in the morningf, said Melissa Lankford. Several incidents during the week pro- vided an outlet for tensions. Richard Ste- venson sang a song with a line about a laying a finger alongside the nose. ln- stead of the expected gesture, he stuck his linger inside his nose. It brought a louder response than most numbers. Then the night of the performance, Mr. Cox forgot to direct the song for in- termission. By the time anyone realized what had happened, the incident became funny. ,Iason Wall gave a performance of his own on how to gracefully melt down a flight of steps. Thank goodness he wasn't hurt, but if he decides to market the act, he would have it down pat. The only thing about the performance that puzzled eve- ryone was Trey Rustmannis Aggie joke. No one could figure it out. Talented instrumentalists added to the Dinner The- atre program. Playing guitars is David Smith and Todd llall while David sings "Hysleria." Practice made perfect for a popular medley, "Surfin' USA," performed by the Varsity Choir. 18 Dinner Theatre 1 Ont- of tht' many soloists at Dinner Theatre was Shannon Herbert who sings "Some Children Know Him."

It brought people closer together in a time for sharing and giving. Students welcomed the two-week break from school as well. Trina Bryant said, All gives us time off to go out with friends and have a good time. And l donit have to worry about waking up the next day to go to schoolf, Thoughts of presents didn't occupy the minds of most students. Rather, it was family and friends that was most im- portant. Kristi Southall said that Christ- mas was a time to see friends and rel- atives. She said, ull makes a joyful time for everyone to get togetherf, Sara Thomas didnit think presents was the special part of Christmas, either. She said, salt comes when we start cooking Christmas dinner. The kitchen becomes a total disaster, but it is so much funf' Students enjoyed parties with their friends. Trina Bryant said, '4One thing I look forward to is Tracy Carrellis cookie parties. We have so much fun. A lot of girls get together and bake cookies. Then, we decorate them and take them to the rest home. lt's great. When the peo- ple see us come in, their faces light up. lt really makes me feel like I have ac- complished somethingf' Christmas with friends was a special time when it snowed. There was time for snowball lights or snuggling by the fire. Shanda Dickerson remembered playing in the snow with a friend. She said, S'Shalene Sokolyk and I went out and played in the snow! We had a blast! No one could tell who we were and we loved itf' Snow and ice did greet students on Christmas morning. Dana Hackler said, 'gljust love snow.

After lunch, students raced to the senior hall to see if their names were posted on the class list for the all-school production, 'flVly Fair Lady." The production gave all students the opportunity to perform. "There are a lot of people who get involved with the all- school production. lt is exciting for the whole student body to work together to make it successful." said Tiffany john- son. The performance included the work of Cast members plus those who built props, art students who painted the scenery, and band members who played in the or- chestra. "Orchestra practice was fun. I like to see how the songs lil it, especially when Mr. Harris plays the parts of Eliza Doolittle and llenry Higgins," jodi Thomas said. ls It Worth lt? Lines had to be memorized in a short period of time, and cast members re- hearsed in the halls, during lunch, and even during class.

At just the right moment, his pants came unfastened and he scrambled to keep them from falling. It drew the biggest laugh of the whole production. Rehearsals ended and the auditorium filled.

First priority for most students was to have a friend run to the bus first and save a seat or three. After everyone settled into his seat, the driver explained the rules. Then the bus drivers cranked up the engines, and they were off. No matter what type of organization or team, the trips were similar. But not for Stacy Spraggins. She said, UComing home from the Varsity Choir trip was really different, we were listening to the police scanner and heard about a guy who had just killed a woman at a bus stop where we had left. He was driving a Camaro which had passed us, so we stayed awake and everybody tried to get in the front of the bus to see the mur- dererli' Each trip, food and Cokes were smug- gled aboard. On longer trips when food was permitted, people brought a variety ranging from Oriental egg rolls to Amer- ican apple pie. Nancy Nettleton said, 'tlfl bring food with me on the bus, then I Students were always anxious to attend out of town activities. Shane Hicharson and Ray Bostic wait in line to lc-ave. 28 Bus Trips bring MeDonaldis cookies or anything that sounds good at the moment." Some who werenit occupied with other things kept a sharp lookout for Hslug bugsf, or Volkswagens. Then the search for upididlesf' one-eyed cars, began. Mark Alewine said, ul play 'pididle' be- cause itis a good way to pass the time and keep from being boredfi The rules of these games were often confusing and always changing, but that added to the fun. Loud bursts of laughter, usually from a group of people huddled in the back seats, pierced the silence of the black- ened bus and awoke just about everyone who tried to sleep. Yolanda Journey said, Ml generally have nothing to work on, so I sleep, but it is hard when the other people on the bus are rowdy." Soon a sponsor would wake and have a chat with the group. The chat usually lasted for a cou- ple of minutes, and then the jokes started again. Finally things would calm and most everyone would get a little sleep. f Q: Luggage racks provided a place for students to keep their things on bus trips.

Most of them said the best ways to improve looks were by new hair styles, clothes, and make-up. The styles for the eighties were different, and most thought it was an improvement. Stacy Spraggins said, "A great way to improve your looks is by getting lit, exercising, eating right, and then you feel great about yourself. That's what mattersf, Others at school improved their looks by dieting, like Kim Jarnagin. She said, "Dieting is like our hobby since we do it all the time." Some were lucky, like Kelley Roudebush, who could eat all the time and never gain a pound! So she said! For some students, it took three hours to get ready for a date, for school, or for anywhere. "I have to get up early in the morning for school. If everything isnlt perfect, my day is terrible,', said J ill Bills. Kathleen McLeod said, 'llt seems like I never have enough time to get readyf' Kerrie Brinkman said, 'LI have no set time. I could go on for days and never make any progressf, Some people strived for a unewn look. "I either get perms, get my hair cut, or change my make-up colorf' said Nancy Hoyle. Marcie Young highlights her hair. She said, "I donit like my hair being so dull and dark, so I highlight it to give it some colorf, Many people didn't like the way they looked, so they tried to cover it up.

He said, 'AI usually have to work, but if Iim off, I go out with my friends." Weekends seemed to be the ideal time to get together.

With different eol- leges and different goals. many ties that held together friends would be broken. Memories of the last game. the last term paper, the last pep assembly, and the last danee would stay with the seniors for the rest of their lives. Students often had mixed feelings as things became final. Most thought the thir- teen years of praetiee, studying, and hard work would never come to an end, but they soon did. A little too soon for some. "l'll miss all my friends who will be leaving for college," said Mary Pike. Students witnessed tears, laughter, screams, and ecstatic hugging as the year drew to a close. For seniors, thirteen years ended, but for juniors and sophomores, After the final Winter llomeeoming danee of the year, Steve Anderson. with a smile, tells Nicki Kaseeska good night at her door. there were still one and two years left to endure. For seniors. a whole new life began after graduation, but one would walk away with cherished memories of friendships and spe- cial events. "I'lI keep my memories from pietures and my yearbook." said Melissa Jefferies. Perhaps one of the greatest memories of all was the final joining of hands as a student body to sing the Alma Mater. 'gl've always had so much fun at the pep as- semblies! I'll really miss that!" said Krista Sehumaker. Charles Dickens once wrote, "It was the best of times: it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdomg it was the age of foolishness, it was the spring of hope: it was the winter of despair: we had everything before us, we had nothing before usf' To seniors, these words would be the best way to deseribe their last year of high school, for the senior year was always the best. 5 Tears and hugs close the football season.

Urganizations 39 Tough Competition It's Worth It In The End The students stood with their ears glued to the door listening to the musician play. Sud- denly the music faltered - a feeling of relief and disappointment fell upon the group as they quietly stepped away. The musician opened the door and left without saying a word. That was competition. It was a major part of each or- ganization. Competition began two weeks before school started with their first rehearsal. 'gl always feel the competition, but this year it is stronger because there are some good sophomoresf, said Michelle Gross. The first three months' rehearsals rarely be- gan later than 8:00 a.m. Getting up for these rehearsals was difficult for many students.

Vocal Music 43 ne Big F amil Raising Spirit Cheerleaders raised spirit in any crowd. They were seen at almost every activity associated with school. They cheered at football games, pep assemblies, basketball games and numer- ous other school functions. Although cheering was their main job, the cheerleaders did things for the community like Operation Santa Claus and the ,Iayeee Dunking Booth. After tryouts. the cheerleaders looked for- ward to a busy year. At camp they won four superiors ratings and three spirit sticks. They were candidates for squad of excellence and super star squad, and Erin Young. Miss Bull- dog, was named All-American Mascot. There were the pep assemblies, sporting events, the fun times and of Course. the sad times. The last football game was one of those limes. Becky Cooley remembered. "Reality hit when we lost to Woodward. I'd never cheer at another Bull- dog football game againf, To be able to share times like these. the cheerleaders had to be able to get along. "We're like a family, fourteen sisters, three Football games proxirle the perfect place for cheerleaders to lead in the most popular chants. This one was "lean." 44 Cheerleaders brothers, and one mother - Mrs. George," said Kerrie Brinkman. Many special relation- ships were formed between the seventeen stu- dents. One of the relationships was formed many years ago, a lilial one between Kelly and Wade Douthit. Wade said. "The hardest thing is trying to keep being brother and sister out of cheering and cheering out of being brother and sister." Cheering was a big part of the seventeen students, lives this year. Becky Cooley summed up the feeling of cheering when she said, Mcheering is hard work, but it's worth itlv Uuys were also a part of the cheerleading squad again for the second year. With three guys on the squad, building pyramids and doing stunts were made easier. The guys also went to camp with girls.

As a team, they encouraged the football and basketball players to win and cheered them on to victory. While the cheerleaders were out front, the Drill Team sat in the stands chanting cheers with the spectators. During the summer at Drill Team camp, the four officers, Vicki Bellizzi, Lisa Deere, Eliz- abeth Lowell and Stacy Spraggins were selected to march in Macy's Thanksgiving Parade in New York City. Each officer had to have 31000 for the trip and sponsored a talent show and dance workshop to raise money.

Energetic drills performed at football games added much excitement and color to halfatime activities. Dance routines became a specialty for the drill team. Elite team members, April Colner, Stacy Spraggins and Kathy Hansen, step to the beat. Drill Team members faithfully follow the cheerleaders at assemblies.

Drill Team 47 ecisions A Voice in the Actions of School Decisions for almost a thousand students were made by the Student Council who were elected by the students themselves to serve as their representatives. They would voice the stu- dents, opinions on subjects from how to dress for Spirit Week on a certain day to gathering canned food at Christmas for the needy. lt meant sponsoring hall decorations during Spirit Week and door decorations at Christmas. They planned the dances for Homecoming in the fall and winter seasons. The representatives learned from their ex- periences on the Council. Senior representative Kevin Kesselring said, 6'We plan upcoming events. l really like it because it teaches me responsibilityf, Junior representative Staci Milner echoed those comments. She said, "lt teaches responsibility because you must make decisions for your entire classf, Sophomore rep- resentative ,lunior Gonzales said, "It is nice to know we sophomores have a voice in the actions of this school." Another organization to plan activities, but for their own group, was the ,Iunior Engineering Tech- nological Society. They planned for guest speakers to further their knowledge about scientific studies and planned trips to compete with other students to test their skills against others. The JETS activities for the year were a learning process for its members. Robyn Kaseeska said, 'Alt was very educationalf' Shannon Moss said the organization was an interesting experience be- cause, "We have speakers on many different sub- jects, plan trips to contests, and arrange the fi- nances for these lripsf, F 92 FI: 5.

Every Monday through Thursday, ACTV went on the air. ACTV Channel 2 gave news, weather reports, sport picks and special films. They also had semester projects where they had to film some kind of activity around town. uWe learn a lot. We write our own scripts, make films, and learn how to use the equipmentf, said Jill Winkler. This year, the newspaper staff started print- ing the Bulldog Collar every other week instead of weekly. The staff met on Monday nights at the newspaper office to make the final touches before printing. Mark Alewine said, "Even though we have two weeks between printing, we use all the time to make sure we get everything right and don't have to spend all night at the newspaper officef' Yearbook editors and staff members stayed after school, during vacations, through the ice storms, and late into the evenings working frantically to meet their four deadlines. As any staff member could attest, sometimes it became a bit depressing to spend Friday and Saturday nights stuck in an empty school with nothing but a radio, a typewriter, and a building full of noises to keep you company. Adviser, Mrs. Becky York, said, "But no one stays depressed long, because someone is always trying to scare someone else, especially me."

But, they also spend many hours of classroom time preparing for stock shows and confer- ences. At the Tulsa State Fair, students took first crop sweepstakes. During the Okla- homa State Fair, they placed second overall sweepstakes, second crop sweep- stakes, and third ag mechanics sweep- stakes. They received many awards, one of them outstanding crop producing chapter in Oklahoma and another, out- standing vocational agricultural depart- ment of l987. 46We all take pride in FFA and all our hard work always pays oflf, said Craig Niblett. The students also participated in the MFood for America" program held for all kindergarten students in thc city. Students also participated in various activities inside and outside the class.

That's Foreign T 0 Me Students who joined the French and Spanish Clubs not only improved their language fluency, but it also helped them learn about the culture of the French and Spanish people. They took imaginary trips all over the globe. One day, they would have dinner and order champagne in a quaint little village in Quebec. On another day, the students viewed the Eiffel Tower and learned about its overall dimensions while they visited Paris. Then in Madrid, they watched a bull fight on Christmas Day and afterwards went to a party where pinatas filled with candies, fruits, and gifts were broken. The imaginary trips taught the students geography, culture traits, food differences, and how to get along in a country where another language was spoken. Students were not required to take a foreign language. HI took French because I wanted to be able to get into a good college. Most colleges require several credits in a foreign languagef, said Susan Haseltine.

Besides learning another language, students found interesting ways of having fun. They cooked different foods from those countries and tasted it. Sometimes the two clubs combined for an evening of fun. They got together for a pizza party and went to the Altus House Nursing Home to sing Christmas carols in French and Spanish. Residents appreciated the novel way the carols were sung, and the clubs raided Pizza Hut of about 50 pizzas. Students in Mr. Stephens' classes were re- quired to do a one minute commercial. 4'When students got their words messed up, it was hilarious. One sophomore tried to say that polo appealed to the muchachas, but he actually said roaches in Spanish instead,', said Shalene Sokolyk. ln class, there was never a dull mo- ment. Hot pizza with extra cheese could be hard to handle. Mr. Doug Dalton finds it rather amusing as the cheese slides off Mrs. Petra Chavarriais pizza.

For AIASA, it was all just getting started. Last year happened to be their first year. g'We are just now getting into the swing of things and getting organized. We also have more students interested in our group than last year when nobody knew much about usf, said Mr. David Mason, adviser. In almost every club, there had to be fund raisers to keep the club on its feet. AIASA students spent weeks preparing for the annual Arts Festival where they rented a booth and put all their wood creations up for bids. "We worked really hard on preparing everything for the Arts Festival, but I guess it will come out in our favor in the endf, said Dexter Hervey. AIASA students raised money so that they could attend their state convention in Oklahoma City. Art Club members know another type art other than woodworking. The kind that takes time and patience. Major events such as the Arts Festival and the All School Art Show provided activities that gave them the chance to show their art with people in the community. Art Club raised over 351,000 at the Arts Festival, which went toward scholarships for the end of the year and entering the Young Arts contest in Okla- homa City. Tiffany Walker said, '4Art Club is absolutely the best. I feel that we get special privileges.

Part of the credit from the course is having a job and students are graded by their bosses every six weeks.

Whether the person would deliver a political speech, act in a Broadway musical, or lecture as an English pro- fessor at Yale, they would need the skills learned in English, speech, and drama. English students not only learned about nouns and which subjects went with what verb, but also the great writers from history. Poe, Shake- speare, and Chaucer were favorites among students who liked to read. "My favorites were stories from the medieval times," said Susan Faske. Research papers were also a big part of the senior English classes. "I didn't think I'd ever get mine finished. lt seemed to take foreverf' said Mary Ortega. Drama students covered many things in their classes besides just acting. They learned about mock tri- als, making flats, and the theatre with its background. "Mr, King is a great teacher,', said Tommy Brooks, and "Drama II is my favorite classf' Missy Fleming said, "I like being in drama. It allows me to be people I never dreamed I could be." Speech class prepared students for those times when they would be forced to stand in front of other people and actually say something. They pre- pared speeches to inform or to argue a point. They demonstrated "how-to" on topics from bow-making to groom- ing dogs. They also gave impromptu speeches that covered every topic. s'My favorite thing about speech class is the people in it.

But there were students who enrolled in the Nbrainyw classes, math and science, some because they needed the credit, and others to prepare for college. Doug Moulton, enrolled in math analysis and analytic geometry, did not consider his classes a great over- load. He said, "l'm interested in math and I enjoy learning about conic sec- tionsf, While Doug broadened his knowl- edge in subjects most found time- consuming, Tiffani Johnson was in geometry because she had to be.

Michelle Wil- lis, who along with Doug was enrolled in math analysis and analytic geom- etry said, "l plan on majoring in en- gineering, l'll have to have these classes sooner or later, so I might as well get it while itls free." Other students wanted their tran- scripts to look good when applying for scholarships. Luis Duncan, who is in Chemistry Il said, "lim in chemistry because it interests me and also presents a challenge. Plus, it looks good on my transcript."

The boys in P.E. ran, lifted weights, and participated in a basketball tour- nament. The girls did aerobics, jogged, and held a badminton tour- nament. Beginning and intermediate swim- ming were also offered to improve health. The basics were taught in be- ginning swimming, which is why Heather Stover enrolled. She said, 'sl ln Advanced Lifesaving, Chris Stevens lows Brian Neese in a cross-chest carry, used to transport a drowning victim to safety. learned how to tone my muscles and do the strokes correctly."

Mrs. Wiginton said, "We do conditioning swimming." Students im- prove their skills in this class and train to become competitive swimmers. Also offered was life saving, which improved health and offered the op- portunity of a job as a lifeguard. Charles Gunn said, "I've learned how to save a drowning victim's life, first aid and CPR." Obviously, students did not need to be of competitive nature to lind a class in which they could improve their physical condition. X 1 WP-e 42" -A? V "'Qs. , PE and Swimming Lifetim Lessons Welcome to the Real World Lessons that home economics and driveris education students learned correctly in class would benefit them for many years to come. After thirty hours of class time, students actually drove, first in a res- idential area, and then on four lane and major highways. lt all sounded easy, but not everything was covered in the textbook. Actual student ex- periences proved that. In an actual test drive, one student adjusted his side mirror -- with both hands - at 35 m.p.h. And again, when the in- structor asked for a lane change, the student who was already driving in the left hand lane, ended up in a lane of oncoming traffic. When asked to explain the often repeated mistakes, instructor Mr. Bill Hoyt said, HMany times we have turned on the wrong side of the me- dian at the Broadway Main intersec- tion. And my students have been in many yards over the yearsf' In home economics, students learned how to prepare a gourmet meal as well as a family dinner. They planned menus, shopped for food, and decoded the recipes before finally cooking the meal. Fashion sewing helped students on a limited budget. The popular item sewn during the year was a sweatshirt designed and trimmed using a serger. '6Who,s getting married today?,, wasnit a casual question for Mrs. Pat Coffey's marriage and family classes. The students concentrated on the for- mation of relationships and learned the history of wedding traditions. In one project, the class simulated a wedding. Ann Hawkins and Chris Scott participated in the event as the bride and groom. A reception com- pleted the ceremony. Guys as well as girls enrolled in home economics and learned to do their laundry for college, shop for the best buys on food, and plan budgets. It became a matter of pride for stu- dents to know they could make it on their own after high school. Parallel parking! That one word frightened most drivers.

"lt,s not as easy as I thought it would be," said Angela Dickenson. "I would try to get finished and almost always hit at least one wrong key." Most jobs required the ability to type. One class that typing skills helped with was the computer classes. "I'm really glad l took typing because I can work on something else while everyone else is still typing in their programs," said Shelley Sharp. Some students took computer programming because they thought it would be a breeze and they needed an extra cred- it. Most of those students had to work very hard to keep up their grades. Shellie Whorton took the class be- cause she was going to major in busi- ness and she would have to work with computers. "I didn't think it would be this hard. I'm having to study a lot to keep my grade up." Whether typing students were hear- ing "AA Space, ZZ space," or 'sready type," or computer students were staying up studying how to write a program that would tell them how much money a person made a year, all of the students agreed that the classes would help them in the future. Hard at work trying to hit the right keys, Lisa Johnson sneaks a peek at the typewriter while Mrs. Lett isn't looking.

Carpentry students learned the dif- ferent types of tools needed for their craft. They started with a piece of wood and a handful of nails. Then they built something of beauty. "I like to work with wood, and I enrolled in this class to learn as much as I can about wood and what I can make with itf, said Sandy Pearce.

Woodworking was a condensed version of carpentry. Students were taught the value of wood and how to correctly build everything from tables to trinkets. "his neat to see what you can create with your hands,', said Brad Wiles. The vocational classes attended conferences. Fall leadership and state were the most important.

Sports 83 Momentum 'Sits Good a Chance As Anybody" Excitement mounted as the first games of the year loomed near. Priorities for the first weeks of football practice were lined out by the coaches. Head Coach Darvis Cole said, "l'm more than happy with the work from returning play- ers, and we,re excited about the excellent group of sophomoresf' The main concerns of Coach Cole and his coaching staff were injuries and whether or not running back Roderick Neal would be re- turning since his family had moved to California. But the excitement of a possible state title kept football fans on edge when they realized that Neal would play for Altus. He was missed in the opening scrimmage against Burkburnett as was Bobby Hawkins who broke his foot. De- spite the absences of those two, the Bulldogs held their own in the scrimmage and showed promise for the coming season. A pre- season scrimmage against Clinton First downs stay uppermost in the minds of the offense. and jeff Bevers finds a giant hole and running room. 84 Football only served to raise the hopes of fans for a winning year. Coach Chuck Roberts said, g'We had a good shot at winning district last year and we have as good a chance as anybody this year, even to go undefeated. But one of our tough- est opponents is Vernon. Of course, they are every year be- cause ofthe rivalry." And in the season opener - Vernon - fans squirmed on the edges of their seats with a 14-13 thriller. The Bulldogs scored two touchdowns in the first half and led 14--0 until the fourth quarter. But in that last quarter, Vernon came back with two touchdowns of their own. Coach Cole said, "Vernon got a big play or two to gain some momentum and got their crowd behind them. Then we had to play for our lives." Roderick Neal led the ball carriers with 68 yards on 10 carries and also led the defense with 14 tackles, six unassisted. f F , Q- QL t E, 5 " sw' sf 1 , we -41' . ,,.

The End to a Winning Season Oklahoma City teams, Northeast and Star-Spencer provided the third and fourth straight wins for the Bulldogs. Homecoming against Star-Spencer, a 56-8 win, assured the team of a playoff berth, along with MacArthur and Duncan. But on their trip to Lawton, the Bull- dogs were defeated 0-21 by Mac- Arthur. The Duncan playoff proved a different story for the team as they went on to a 23-20 win in their last home game, but not before giving the fans a thriller. It was tied at the end of the second half, and the game went into overtime. The Bull- dogs held Duncan, but the Demons kicked a 30-yard field goal giving them a 3 point lead. Then Rod- erick Neal forced his way through in a third down for the winning touchdown, and the game ended at 23-20.

It was the last game as a student for many fans, and it was the last game to cheer for several cheerleaders. But pride dominated the field as the team fought and played their best and brought an end to a season of eight wins and only three losses.

Those games were preparing the team for the Shortgrass Invitation- al, which was held in Altus. As- sistant Coach J. D.

The last game of the tour- nament turned out to be a dis- appointing loss to Chickasha. The following game was also a loss, but Lawton MacArthur only won by a one-point margin in the last exciting minutes of the game. Even though the team had these losses, their spirits werenlt de- stroyed. Cerald Young said, "All the games are important until the last one . . . until the regionals or the end ofthe seasonf' The momentum ofthe team be- gan to pick up late in the season. The Bulldogs had four consecutive wins against Lawton High, Ard- more, Lawton MacArthur, and Lawton Eisenhower. The Bulldogs then went on to play Duncan where they lost. They then picked back up to win against Lawton High and Duncan. With these wins behind them the Bulldogs went on to play in the regionals which were held in Chickasha this year. There they lost to Chickasha in the first game by a margin of 4-5-53. It was a sad moment for all.

Weightlifting proved a fa- vorite pastime for students in all sports. Building up muscles and endur- ance helped the wrestler and the football player move quickly. It al- so helped the muscle-conscious people feel better about them- selves. Eneth Hancock worked long hours in body building. "I work out a lot. It takes away stress and makes me feel great,', he said. Bruce Hinman lifted weights to im- prove his speed for football. He said, "I like the feeling of strength I get from the weightsf, The wrestlers used the weights to help them become stronger. Wrestlers had to work to keep their weight down, but at the same time work to build up their muscles. Ray Bostic said, Wfhe weights help me to build up my endurancef, Darren Eiler felt weights helped him to become a better wrestler. "I build up my muscles and my strength at the same time." Greg Walker liked being in weightlifting because he wanted to improve his body in any way pos- sible. 4'It's my body and I want it to look and feel greatf' he said. Jason Redeker felt the same way. '6Making my body look great is important to me. Weights also help improve my wrestling ability," he said. With a sudden burst of strength and the help of a friend, James Smith lifts the weight. In case the bar slipped, Shane Fitts, James' lifting partner, had to be ready to catch it. Practice taught wrestlers the basic funda- mentals, but when they participated in a real match they had to rely on their instinct.

One flip could take hours in order to get the timing just rightg one turn could cause a serious knee injury and had to be practiced with great con- eentralion. The balance beam was only four inches wide and a routine on it was quite tricky to learn. First, the gymnast began with the beam on the floor until the routine could be learned without falling off too many times. Then the flip or split had to be practiced - over and over. Then there were the uneven bars, a difficult event to compete 'wk-4 'ii '3- V Team participation did not always mean competition. Karla lilston helps flash floor scores during the Altus lnvilalional.

Along with rock climbing, there was also rappelling. Chip Primoli and Tommy Ferenezhalmy rap- pelled at the Wildlife Refuge to gain skills in mountain rescuing. Hlt gives me a feeling of inde- pendence and aeeomplishmentlii Tommy said. Many students danced for the fun of it at parties or dances, while others took classes where they learned performance techniques. Kristi Kidwell started dancing about three years ago when she tried out for Drill Team. She start- ed taking lessons a year later. "I really liked the way Leah Wall, my instructor, dances, and I wanted to dance like her," Kristi said. Along with sports for the body there were also sports for the mind, like karate. Steve York had prac- ticed karate since he was in eighth grade. He had over twenty-one tro- phies and placed first in state and second in nationals two years in a row. 'il also plan to test for my black belt before I graduatef, said Steve. They all loved what they did, even if they didn't want to make a career out of it.

People I I 3 Seniors Share Their Fears Terrifying Tales Believe it or not, seniors do have fears. Some fears were as harmless as the imagination while others were genuine. Many people learned to overcome their fears, but Jodi Thomas admitted, "When I was little, I used to be afraid that Dracula was going to bite my neck at night so I slept with crosses around my neck." Other fears weren't so easy to overcome. Brian Crabtree said, "I'm afraid of needles." These and other phobias such as fear of snakes, spiders, and the dark were common ones. Now seniors have different kinds of fears -- what will happen after graduation? "I'm scared that once I graduate, things won't seem as safe anymore," said Denise Saucier. Going on to a university or college seemed to be the ultimate fear though. Sharla Kendrix said, "I'm so scared of going to college and getting accepted." But Kelly Roudebush and Shanyn Richardson are just worried about getting to a college out of Altus. No matter what the age is, fears will always abound, especially in seniors. S 1 -.-v-nv--nv+N4g A After twelve years of school, students are always finding a new way to study. Tommy Richeson found it easy with a fnght mask, but he didn't scare his teacher, Mrs. Jolene McLeod, into a better grade. 114 Seniors f M X h -Q..-22-a ,wh . ,Q if Q N? iv k Q it .. WL., Seniors at Last We Finally Made It Endless hours of studying, taking tests, and writing essays was coming to an end. This class of seniors were asked what being a senior meant, and many said it meant graduation and much more respon- sibility. Students pictured big plans and great expectations for their senior year. "I want our team to take regionals in wrestling and I will get my black belt in karatef, said Steve York. Most students agreed to worry less about grades. 4'I,m just going to have fun and not worry as much about my grades," said Wade Douthit. Students who thought their senior year would be a breeze finally realized differently. Jennifer Claborn said, HI didnat expect to still have to work hard, but I do. I just want this year to be my best and most memorable year everf, Whether we go off to college or just stay around home, each of us will remember our high hopes and big dreams. Some we will laugh about and some we will cry about. Whatever the case, students all wanted to have fun. Stephanie Roberson summed it all up by saying, 4'My plans for this year are to make the most of the time I have left with all my friends here and just have funln Patriotism was the theme of the essay in Mrs. Jolene McLeod's English classes. Kerrie Brinkman, Leonel Canisalez, Kim Duffy, and Vicki Bellizzi sing while Tommy Richeson provides visual effects and Ty Wil- leford uses tape cases as cymbals in the "Star Spangled Banner."

I pinned it to my bulletin board, and it,s been there ever sincef, Saraas treasure is a towel from tennis camp. Katrina Minor said, 'fNotes are treas- ures and a way to keep your memories foreverf, Shelly Goss had a much simpler explanation for her note collection. She said, 6'They,re fun to read and reread."

Neither girl would sell their col- lection. HI could be blackmailedli' said Katrina. Mark Tinney began his collection of baseball cards when he was eight years old. Now he has over 56,000 cards. On the other hand, some treasures are not concrete, like friendships. These are the ones that people attach stronger feel- ings to. "Don't you dare like him, I used to go out with him and you are my friend so you canit do thatlv said Becca Heston when rememl ering the words of friends who think ot going out with your ex- boyfriends. Priceless treasures come in many sorts and fashions, but watch out! Someone might be taking yours right now. A doll collection tops the list of Stacy Spraggins' treasures. Robert Morey looks on as she names the occasion when she received each one. Seniors 1 19 It Captures the Moment Freeze The camera man says, '6Smile! Hold it right therelv The camera clicks and the flash blinds, but it is exciting be- cause getting pictures taken is a big deal to a senior. Randy Marceleno said he was happy to get his senior pictures taken because it made him feel more like a senior. It is one of the first things they do in the year. Some people have a love-hate relationship with pictures. They love them when they turn out good and hate them when they donit look just right. Shanyn Richardson loves pictures. 120 Seniors Frame She said, "his my second most favorite hobby. I like it because it captures the momentf' Some people feel embarrassed or shy about getting their pictures taken. Joan- na Carcia said she also felt worried about how the pictures would turn out. HI always take bad pictures!" she said. Other people just donit like to get their pictures taken. Brian Crabtree said, "The photographer tells you to smile and you always look fake.', But it is beside the point whether they like taking pictures or not. It has to be done. The right outfit is sometimes hard to find. Tammy Higgins tries to fmd the perfect outfit for her senior pictures. Hair is perfect and glasses are straight. Seniors worried about looking perfect for their pictures. As Allen Hol- liday gives instructions, Salvador Roblez puts a smile on his face.

Then they have to send announcements out and get their caps and gowns for graduation. For the prom, there are the tuxedos or formal gowns. Oh, and a new outfit for the banquet. And this doesn't include scholarship and acceptance fees for colleges. Being a senior can be very ex- pensive. Sharla Kendrix said that her parents paid for all her senior expenses. But some students aren't that lucky and have to find jobs to help. Tammy Packard said, "It must be nice to have your parents pay for everything. I have to pay my own wayf' She said it helped her to leam responsibility and how to manage her money. Mary Ortega's parents met her half way by helping her pay for her expenses. Mary summed it all up by saying it was worth every penny because it was her last year. The seniors have waited patiently for this year and added up the price, but the good outweighed the money every time. 'Sf gd Class rings are just one expense that seniors face each year. Tammy Packard watches as Kristi Kidwell chooses her ring, Seniors 123 I'II Never Forget When . . Memorable oments Memories met her as she walked into her room. She couldnlt get away from them. The faded corsage tacked on the bulletin board reminded her of the homecoming dance with that special guy. Photo albums filled with pic- tures of games and dances lay open on her desk. No, she couldn't get away from the things that helped create memorable moments. Success was a memorable moment for Kathy Hansen. Ml will never forget when l got all superiors at drill team campfl she said. uMy memorable moment was when we were soph- omores and we won skit and ball decorationsf' said Tammy Packard. Memorable moments embarrassed others. '6One night l was running across the fJ'!McDonaldls parking lot and l fell. lt was so embarrassing. Iill never forget it,,' said Kristi Kidwell. Sometimes the embarrassing things happened to fellow classmates. Steve McClure said his memorable moment was when Jeff Dion fell down the stairs while we were marching around inside the school playingjungle bunny. A memorable moment for Denise Saucier was during her junior year when George Kirby left the top down on his car on the first day of school and it rained. Looking through the yearbook, the girl re- membered all the laughs and all the tears she shared with her friends. Although she would be leaving the school, she would take every mem- ory with her. Memories were kept close to Kim Willis by collecting everything. Pictures, ribbons, newspaper clippings and any- thing else that had a memory on it were on the bulletin board in her room.

So why do tears glisten in the comers of eyes and noses suddenly become stuffy? This is the greatest time of our lives! For some of us it began in other places. Audrey Flanagan and I sat in the same kindergarten class in Italy, half way round the world, and didn't know it until our junior year. I came to Altus in first grade and that first day was really scary. I cried, and my teach- er, Mrs. Fennel, gave me a pat on the behind. That was the trick that got me going, and I soon made friends in that class, like Steve York who is still a good friend. Friends are most important for all of us. Karen Smades and I walked in straight lines together - from the water fountain to the lunch room - and back to the classroom. We learned to dance together in junior high. Some of us waited that late for our fu-st kiss. Christmas is a special time in the memories of all seniors, especially for Tom Hughes, whose eyes spar- kled as he awaited Santa Claus. Part of childhood memories includes things like favorite pajamas, roadrunner bedsheets, and Christmas Eve. Tamra Romines is ready for bed, awaiting a visit from Santa Claus wishing she had been good. Marcie Simmons and I yelled together when we finally got to pick the classes we wanted to take. In high school, we washed windows for That Altus Bandg we scared people at the haunted houseg and we sold fundraising tick- ets to everything imaginable. We even sold elevator tickets to the sophomores. I won't forget my first or last pep as- sembly. The drummers marched in, and my heartbeat accelerated and stayed there right through the alma mater. The high school years were definitely the best. We had moved around so much, I never dreamed I would still be here for my senior year. And that goes for many of us who share so many memories from childhood. I'm still a little scared. I don't know if I'm ready for that first big day after graduation. I won't have a first-grade teacher to give me a swat to get me going. Now I know why we're all crying. - Tamra Romines The bright smile and pretty eyes of Karen Smades is still a part of the charm that wins hearts wherever she goes.

Juniors 135 o Fun Allowed Torture of Being Grounded When one was a young child and did some- thing wrong, he or she was usually spanked. But at high school age, the punishment was dif- ferent, although it hurt just as much - being grounded. Getting home late, talking back, re- ceiving bad grades, and staying on the phone too long were just some of the reasons parents grounded their teenagers. "I remember when Brad Warren, Nicki Kaseeska, Mike Bryant and l went to the res- ervoir after the prom,', ,Iodi Thomas recalled. "Then l got grounded because nobody knew where we were.', Consequences of being grounded ranged 136 Juniors R . from the use of no phone, no stereo, and no television to even worse torture of no dates and no car. Alisha Kegley said, "I canit even sit in my car, listen to my stereo, or watch televisionlv Krista Schumaker said she gets in trouble for not doing what sheis told. "I get grounded for not cleaning the house, but my parents never stick to it," she said. Denise Saucier had similar problems, but her parents made sure she served the whole time. 'il get grounded for a week for not having my room neat or not having the laundry done. ltis not fairf' she said. Although being grounded was supposed to teach a lesson, sometimes it just didn't work. .M elif? When her parents saw her report card, Angela White was immediately grounded and had to stay home on a Saturday night to do her homework.

Sharing a lunch, figuring out an algebra problem, or fighting over a boyfriend was the element that bound many friendships together, ones that would last a lifetime. It provided memories that students would con- tinue to laugh over, and some to cry over. For instance, friendships began many dif- ferent ways. Karla Elston met her best friend, Melissa Green, in the second grade when her mother was Melissa,s Brownie troop leader. However, most people met their best friends at school, like Michelle Newberry. She said, HI met Tanya Coodnew while trying to figure out an algebra problemf, Friendships had one thing in common. shar- Jeri Rankin David Ray Tim Ray Jason Redeker I ,lon Paul Redelsburger Paul Reed Mary Reyes Betty Richards David Richards Donna Richardson Karen Richardson Markie Richardson Dara Riggs Traci Roberson Marcus Roberson Rosie Roblez Angie Rogers Brandi Rogers 138 Juniors ing. Friends share many things - clothes, food, secrets, boyfriends, girlfriends, every- thing. Bobby Littlejohn and Timmy Pearce shared an interest in "girls,', whereas Shannon Moss and Julie Lee both liked, as Shannon said, 'ghaving funf' Some friends were lucky enough to share classes. Others, like Patricia Frazier, whose best friend, Holly Peyton, went to South- east, didnlt even see their best friend in the halls. Friendship, though, was not measured on the basis of quantity of time spent together, it was rather the quality that was important. Patricia states that, when she did get to see her best friend they, "talked, talked, giggled, and talked some more, and partied of courself' avril -15' X ax If Y ,fTf',,liq W, Assemblies brought all students together and made it pos- sible for friends to sit together.

Those who received demerits not only got in trouble at school, but they also got in trouble at home with mom or dad. "I got my Iirst five demerits when my boyfriend gave me a ride to the language arts building. I was so embarrassed, but I was also mad,', said Angela Dickenson. Writing sentences caused problems also. Tamra Romines said, g'Never again will I write sentences in Mr. ,Ioe Don Royalis class. I ran out of ink and paper writing sentences like 'I do solemnly swear to spit my chewing gum into the trash receptacle before entering Mr. Hoyal's enjoyable lifth hour chemistry classf U ,Ioelle Ray was anxious to graduate so she could get out of geometry.

But names were very important to some people and confusing to others, like having the same first name. "I've gotten to where if anyone calls my name ljust ignore it until they come up to me because if I answer the call itis usually not for me," said Steve Anderson. Always being known by your last name can be annoying. Jill Wolfe said, nl have to write my last name on everything I do or nobody will know who l amf' Having the same name as several other peo- ple can also cause some pretty embarrassing 144 Sophomores moments.

Nicknames helped to separate the Cindys in basketball. 'LEveryone gave me the nickname 'Smurf' because there are two of us, so my nickname helps to keep it straightf' said Cindy Taff.

"0hl I can't get upl I'm so tired! Why me?,' This became a popular groan for students who had jobs or activities that caused them to get up early in the morning. Swim students crawled out of bed at the crack of dawn. HWhen I get up at five-thirty, I think of all my friends who are in bed, but in the end all the hard work and getting up early is worth it," said Susan Haseltine. Attitude played a big part in how well stu- dents coped with getting up in the morning. Mark Alewine said, MI like the extra band practice I get, and besides, if I wake up on the wrong side of the bed, I always have time to get things going right. I get up at six with the attitude that Cod has given me another day to live and I want it to be as long as possible." 1 3 is lu-1 M ft as 'H if if ,K I as ffl. .ts i y I X I I . . ry. l Crystal Hughes Lavelle lshcomer Andy James Bobby james Most students slept as long as they could while trying not to be late.

'SHOW do they expect me to make it to school by eight- thirty, when I had just gotten home from work a few hours beforef' Ray Lewis said he hated getting up to catch the early bus to school. '6Being a yearbook photographer has its disadvantages like having to get up early. But it also has its advantages - like riding on the cheerleaders, bus to the games." Those who work while everyone else is sleep- ing envy those who get to stay in bed. Billy Braun said, 4'While everyone else is asleep on Saturday morning, I have to get up and go to work. ltfs really rough when I'm tired, but I think of the money." David Smith gets up earlier than most to go to work before school at the radio station.

Fundraisers were held throughout the year. The junior class held a chili-bean supper to raise money for the junior-senior prom. The Band sponsored a Haunted House for their trip to Kentucky. The Drill Team held a talent show to raise money for the officers' trip to New York. The child-care students sold candy bars, the DECA students sold Wseniori' sweatshirts. and the ICE students sold ceramic can- dleholders in order to go to contest.

After school, they usually ran home, got a quick bite to eat, changed, and they were out the door again on their way to work.

Susan Faske said, "My job pays very well. This enabled me to buy a car and pay it off." Markie Richardson said, "l've saved almost all of my money. I'm trying to get a niee ear.

"I donit have time to eat anything healthy, lim in too big of a hurryf' said Bennett. Other people had time to eat something nu- tritious, but they just didn't want to take the time.

This was a quote heard during a skit featuring the players and their dreams, a skit about junk food, a regular dayis diet. Wherever students looked they could always find someone, somewhere, whether in class or at home, with some kind of junk food in his hands. 'gl want an order of pickleos and a medium cherry lime Sprite with a lid from Sonic. At least once a week I crave that and can't wait to taste it,', said Becca Heston. Sonic was a main hangout, not only on the weekends but during the week to get a studentis favorite non-nutritional foods. Let's face it, junk food was an important part of a student's daily unbalanced eating habits.

Sophomores 155 In the Blink of an Eye From Sophomore to Senior The sophomore rushed around the house. He searched for the perfect thing to wear. lt was the first day of school and he couldn't be late. For the first time in his life, he was early, but he had to wait on his mother for a ride to school. The first year of high school proved quite an experience for most sophomores. "I enjoy be- ing a sophomore, but it will probably be my hardest year. Trying to find all my classes, not forgetting my combination, and trying to be accepted are the big problems," said Amanda Lowey. Heather Stover protested that the HSophomores get the crummy lockersf, On the other hand, students like Tina Jones said, 'elf you do something wrong you have an excuse. Just say 'lim a sophomore, and they will un- derstandf' Exactly one year later, the junior drove his old car to school. lt was the year of drivers' licenses and lirst jobs and first cars. "The junior year is the hardestf' said Christy Holcombe. "You take the most difficult courses that year. You are looked up to by the soph- omores, but still looked down on by the seniors. Nothing's new like when you were a sophomore, and you don,t have the excitement of being a seniorf, ACT and SAT tests worried most juniors. For the first time, it dawned on them that college was not far off, but the senior year, the last one, was yet to come. Seniors liked being seniors. Some knew that it would be a short year and looked forward to college and leaving home. Some looked forward to being adults and responsible for their own actions. Lorien Williams said, "Now that llm a senior and enjoying all the benefits and at- tention, I'm really living it up. But you have to be perfect in the eyes of the sophomores, oth- erwise you get no respect." Don Cope thought being a senior was a great feeling. He said, "lt's going by too fastf' Russell Beatty said, 4'High school in essence has been fun, but now, know- ing that l don,t have another year to depend on is scary. l mean, I better grow up in a hurry." The hardest part of being a senior, most agreed, was the senior research paper. Some felt that the sophomores had the best seats, because they could see better in the balcony. Others did not like it because of the nickname that went along with it. "The llighchairf' Sophomores give their all to win "Battle Cry."

While cutbacks in state funds ham- pered the operation of schools in other districts, Altus Schools continued to build and expand its programs. Every building received an addition to its facilities in the past year, while the main build- ing at the high ovation with all school underwent major ren- new offices ready at the be- ginning of the school year. After the dust cleared from the carpenters, the staff moved in and were delighted with the pleasant decor provided for them. X Students benefited from expanded and new programs during the year. The School Board voted to establish a soccer program in response to students' requests. One hundred and ten different courses were offered for the tenth through twelfth grades, and because of the all- around curriculum, Altus was chosen outstand- ing in the state two out of the last four years. With an increase in graduation requirements, American College Test scores surpassed the national and state averages. On the Metro- politan Achievement Tests, students scored above the 50th percentile in all grade levels. Tenth graders scored above the 80th percentile on the writing assessment tests. All were ac- complishments the School Board, the admin- istration, and faculty referred to with pride. Members of the School Board were often seen in the halls or in the cafeteria of the various schools. Few students realized who it was that worked behind the scenes on their behalf and made the decisions for their ed- ucation: the very best for each and every stu- dent in the system. 33 11 ,3 "2 ..

Still, time was left for school board meetings and normal duties in administering to the needs of 4700 students, and the Board of Education offices ran smoothly. One of the reasons it did was a staff who worked hard to fill the requests of teachers, students, and parents of the school system. lt was a staff that was always glad to help and assisted everyone with a smile - a staff that Dr. Foster pointed to with pride.

The re- modeling remained a source of pride to eve- ryone, including the students. The students were the reason for the hustle and bustle and the smiles from those who worked in the office. lf a student needed his transcript, he knew he could find a smile with the help he received.

Their normal secretarial duties were supplemented by many others, such as nurse when someone was ill, peacemaker when one came in angry, collector of lost and found articles, seamstress when needle and thread were needed, and the list goes on and on. Very important to the students were the counselors. They could be depended upon for schedule changes, a box oftissue when the tears flowed, an encouraging word when problems arose, and special treatment for new students. Personnel changes were made at mid- semester. Mr. Roy Lamar transferred to North- east ,Iunior High as principal, and Mr. Darvis Cole, replaced Leonard Scalf, who retired, as athletic director. Not only did counselors help students with their problems but they also made college decisions easier. Counselors are Ms. Suzie llardage. Coach J. D. ,loltnson. and Mrs. Petra Chavarria. Administration 163 Collecting More Than Exams Teachers, Trivia Teachers proved to be the best people for collecting things. Their desks overflowed with papers. Their bookshelves held texts dating back to the Stone Age. Their closets ran over with a collection of material that they just could not get rid of. If asked if they ever threw anything away, they would usually say "no.,, In addition to their usual collection of paraphenalia, a few teachers collected and dis- played unusual items. Then, there were those who dared to display those items. The collection usually depicted something about the person- ality of its owner. For instance, Mrs. Donna Smith said, "As a child, I loved fairy tales. The unicorn is prev- alent in such imaginary stories. Now I ap- preciate it as a literary symbol. It is mentioned in many of the myths and authors refer to them in modern literature, toof' Students also noticed the added touch a few posters made. 6'Mrs. Smith decorates the room with her unicorn posters and it adds a nice touch. She really likes them,', said Marsha Taylor. Another member of the faculty, Mr. Mark Morey, collected Mickey Mouse novelties. The Plaques displayed in Mr. Maurice King's drama room demonstrate his pride in the ability of his students. Decorated walls catch the attention of students as they walk into the classroom of Mrs, Donna Smith. She adds a new unicorn poster, her favorite collector's item. 164 Faculty students loved it. An ordinary day would be turned into a "funn one just by going into his junior English class and seeing him with his Mickey Mouse hat on. Mr. Morey said, 'gl bought some toys for my son, Robert, when he was two or three, and we both enjoyed his Mickey Mouse train as well as a wind-up- Mickeyf' Mr. Morey displayed his collection on the walls and over the chalkboard and it was fun for students to bring him a new Mickey Mouse to add to his collection. '6You can see my students asking, 'What kind of nut is this?' It is fun to watch their reactions during the first week of the school yearf, Mr. Maurice King displayed plaques from his musicals collected during the years. It is some- thing he pointed to with pride to beginning drama students. Each one held a special mem- ory and was irreplaceable. Mr. Kenneth Cox kept a file with a program from each musical. It was easy for him to check who was in a par- ticular play and what costumes were used. Mr. Cox impressed the Yearbook staff with his collection of Yearbooks. He said, "I have a Yearbook from every year I have taught in the Altus Schools. I have quite a collection now.', Not many dull moments were experienced in Mr. Mai Morey's English classes as he demonstrated the proper wa to play his Mickey Mouse guitar. 1,4 "-15.55 X Z "-.. , ,, -Wm.

However, unless you were a member of his you would hardly understand his lessons that he ted in Spanish. Ones They Would Always Remember Lines For augh Teachers coined certain phrases that soon made them infamous with their students. They could be heard quipping those well-known lines that met with laughs or groans, according to the underlying meaning from each one. An HAH right, class, settle downn or a MStop your talk- ing, or I'll double your assignmentf' were ones that drew the groans. But a MDO you put your feet on the furniture at homely, usually brought a laugh. Students soon learned the favorite sayings of their teachers, ones they would always remem- ber. When one of his students asked to do something special, Mr. Joe Don Royal repeated a typical saying of many teachers: "If I let you do it, then I,ll have to let everyone else do itf, When reviewing for an exam, Mr. Royal also told his students, uYou should know this, but Illl put it on your test anywayf, Mrs. Darlene Johnson, algebra teacher, said her favorite line at least once a week: '6You need to know this frontward, backward, upside down, and sidewaysf' Another line Mrs. John- son said that her students dreaded to hear was, HTake out your homework, put it in the upper corner of your deskf, That always meant a daily pop test was about to be given. Occasionally, a student would be caught copying homework from each other. Mr. Robert Bostic would say, "I know youlre not cheating, youlre just sharing ideasf, Some sayings became trite, but most of them were funny every time they were said. When a student caught one of her mistakes, Mrs. Becky York said, HThat,s my first mistake this year," whether it was her fourth or fourteenth. Students appreciated their teachers, senses of humor about repeated phrases and received the teasing with grace. an rf, ... .....-- as I ' " w "I ,xv .JP 'lf ff irr, 'ay , 5 H5 ,t So that his students will not feel the need to share ideas, or copy, Mr. Robert Bostic is careful to make his lessons clear and precise. Algebra teacher, Mrs. Darlene Johnson is explaining the assignment in hopes that students will know it nfrontward, backward, upside down, and sideways."
