In 1970 a bright, enthusiastic English teacher arrived at Americus High School. She became immediately involved with her students as people, andtor the past 7 years has helped them grow Q into competent young adults. She has been growing with A.H.S. since that first day. She has developed a loving loyalty to Americus High School and a sincere interest in her students. Her classes are a world of adventure and pleasure as she strives to produce mature, responsible attitudes in her students. She can often be seen making a second trip to her car to carry the extra work home. She always has a warm smile and a rare understanding for every person she meets. As A.H.S. continues to grow, she continues to grow as a person. She is a lady and a professional. Proudly we dedicate the 1978 Panther yearbook to you, Mrs. Effie Monroe Daniels.

Putting together this yearbook has not been an easy task. ln doing so, wc of the yearbook staff hoped to show how our school has grown and how each of us have grown with iL As members of the yearbook staff, we have grown much in the past year-not only in learning about the development ofa yearbook, but also by sharing our experiences and becoming associated with new people. We began as two distinct groups. One was experienced and considered "old handsw at yearbook. The other was inexperienced and totally new to the creation ofa high school annual. We have come to know each other well and have all learned from each other Knot always about yearbookl. Perhaps doubtful at first, most of us are now confident that the environment at A. H. S. is definitely conducive to growth. Growth in a positive direction.
