Without Dave's assistance and endless energy, this book would not have been possible. Not only did he supply us with the majority of the pictures in this book but he also contributed leadership and offered assistance whenever it was needed. Dave is a prize -winning photographer. This cat is one of his fa -vorite photographs. The annual staff is indeed grateful (and lucky) to have him as a member. Thanks Dave, and keep up the good work.This year the yearbook staff decided that it would be different if we put in a few pictures of different places in the surrounding area. All the pictures on this page are easy to identify now, but what about 20 years from now. Do you think they will all look the same? This page is mainly for your benefit, to look back every now and then and see if any changes have taken place.1. Jan Spring G Dale Steward 2. Trudy Anderson C Kurt Jordan 3.

All the teachers are carring a very heavy and demanding schedule. The teachers here at AlWood seem to get along well with one another and with most of the students. They are always around and willing to assist if the students need help. Of course, it's important that you get teachers that know what they're teaching, but you also need teachers that care about the students and the school. AlWood has exactly that. So....thanks to all the teachers and keep it up.
