Show Hide text for 1983 volume ( OCR) Text from Pages 1 - 120 of the 1983 volume: “ A Touch of Gold
A rainbow is a symbol of hope. Legend holds that at the end of the rainbow there is a pot of gold. The gold may symbolize riches, happiness, or success. In A TOUCH OF GOLD, we will look back on the golden memories of our year together in 1982-3 as Underclassmen, Seniors, and faculty look for their gold at the end of the rainbow.Table of Contents

3Walt Minder —
A Man of Many Hats
This yearbook is dedicated to Mr. Walt Minder for the 35 years he has devoted to AlWood. He started his career in 1948 teaching general science, algebra, and three classes of industrial arts at the junior high level. Walt also coached freshman football, assisted with varsity football, and coached seventh, eighth, and ninth-grade basketball and track. In 1967 Walt was given the position of athletic director.
Mr. Minder was recognized for his achievements at three different occasions during the year including a football game on September 24. A banner was presented to him from the AlWood coaches and erected in the high school gym at a basketball game on January 7. Members of the AlWood Athletic Boosters Organization sponsored an Open House for Walt on Sunday, April 17.
In 1962 Mr. Minder added the driver education program to his duties and since then has instructed approximately 1500 students. He set high goals and standards for driver’s ed. and in return was recognized by the state of Illinois for having an excellent program.
Walt Minder will be missed at AlWood by students and faculty. We will lose his superior driving instruction and his efficiency as an athletic director, but most of all we will lose his devotion that has become such an important part of AlWood.Patrons

Highlights of the J.V. Football Team’s Winning Season. Due to the Pro Football strike, many fans turned out to watch and cheer the AlWood J.V. team on to victory. The team’s overall record was 7-1 and they were 6-1 in the conference. The team provided one thrill after another including its triple overtime win over Galva. Some of the J.V. played Varsity. We look forward to some good action in the seasons ahead.

Members are chosen by the teachers on the basis of their academic scholarship, leadership qualities, service and citizenship. National Honor Society has been an elite organization at this school since December 13, 1955.
This year the entire student body was present at the induction ceremony, which was held on March 25, at 1:30 p.m. One by one the current members passed the light of knowledge to the newly accepted members. This candle lighting ceremony has long been a part of the induction ceremony of the new members into the National Honor Society. Congratulations to all members of the National Honor Society.
