A community of scholars, not a union of mechanics. WHO ISTHE PRINCIPAL? A master of teaching, not a master of teachers. WHAT IS LEARNING? A journey, not a destination. WHAT IS DISCOVERY? Questioning the answers, not answering the questions. WHATISTHEGOAL? Open minds, not closed issues. WHAT IS THE TEST? Being and becoming, not remembering and reviewing. WHAT IS SCHOOL? Whatever we chose to make it. By Allan A. Glatthorn The 1973 Goldbug is dedicated to our planning room neighbors Charlie Camp and Jim Scott who gave us sup- port and understood that our laughing was to hide the frustration. To Charlie Camp, who after returning from his sab- batical, took his place as a leader in Amherst Region- al High School. We honor his persistant interest in curriculum affairs and devotion to Outing Club. Most of all, we appreciated his shoulder to lean on. To Jim Scott, who we feel deserves recognition for his special interests in the school as soccer coach and as Ski Club advisor. Although he has always had a negative stance on yearbooks, we appreciated his advice as a friend. 2 1 8 t’i t , ' » j ' ' , i c (VI % DEDICATION . . ... ,2 FACULTY ... .4 INTERNS . . .22 FALL . . .24 UNDERCLASSMEN . . .52 WINTER . . .70 SENIORS 00 • • • SPRING . . .137 » • k . 9 V • w VEGTABLESTAN MR.

That put them in a tie for third place in the Inter-County League. The Hurricanes led the league by scoring 235 points and had the second best defense, allowing only 51 points in their eight game schedule. The defense posted a league high of five shutouts. The offense was led by Junior halfback Hubby Jackson, who set school records by scoring 94 points and 15 T.D. ' s in one season. He also rushed for 804 yards, the third best performance in Amherst High School history. He was selected All-League Halfback and honorable mention linebacker. The backfield was also helped by senior co-captain Barry Doubleday and by seniors Steve Klemer and Randy Gleen. The offense was probably best in the league as senior co-captain Tom Hankinson and se- niors John Scanlon and John Stosz made All-League and senior co-captain Tom Miller and senior Phil Keenan receiving honorable mention. On defense senior Bill Branfass made All-League and senior Miles Beck made a close second team. The play of the season was John Stosz ' s own end around option which was good for a 55 yard T.D. pass to quarter- back Tom Hanson. Other highlights include the J.V. ' s 4-2 record and Under the coaching of Jim Scott, the soccer team finished with a 4-10 overall record, 4-8 in the league. That placed them in a tie for fourth. Though their record was poor, the team certainly was In every game, losing seven games only by one goal. In the year they scored 14 goals and gave up 16. The team got fine performances from junior Win Lin, who was the leading scorer with six goals. Senior co-captain Tom White scored one goal and had six assists, making All-League honorable mention. There were also fine performances from senior co- captains Dave Fischer and Jim Brophy, who also got All-League honorable mentions. The team was plagued with injuries as senior half- back Jim Plagenhoef was lost for all but the first three games of season. Senior goalie Scott Hundahl and Jim Cole were also out for part of the season. Throughout the season it was common to hear Leon Massaras crying out in vain, " Crossa the ball, crossa the ball! " The J.V. ' s were in better standing with a 5-4-2 record. High scorer for the team was junior Steve Hasbrouck who scored 8 goals in 7 games. Varsity Record A.R.H.S.

CROSS-COUNTRY The cross country team under Coach Randy Crow- ley had the most successful season of any sports team in the history of Amherst High School. They finished with a 9-1 record, the only loss being to Cathedral at the beginning of the season. They finished first in Western Mass., the second time in three years. They finished third at the State ' s Meet, the highest ever. And having never done so in past years, they qualified for the New England Meet in Portland, Maine . Out of over 450 high schools throughout New England, the Amherst High Cross Country team finished in an astounding fifth place, truly an amazing feat. The outstanding runners were seniors: Captain Bill " Fleck " Bleckwehl, who has been on the running circuit since eighth grade and knows the ropes; " Shaggy-Haired " Ward Welcome, who has shown his talents over the past three years; Phil " Sachel " Page, who is another five year veteran and certainly one of the most improved runners in Western Mass.; and Scott " Dead Rabbit " Whitney, who has been a determining factor in the existence of this year ' s team. (Power to the Dead Rabbit, right on.) Juniors who helped out were the ' ole Sachmoe himself, Dave Stevenson, who ran on his own because of trumpet practice after school; Dennis " Turkey " Newell who, without his " great " sound effects, the team would not have been able to survive; and " our own " Mickey Waskiewicz. The bright moments of the season were getting psyched up by constantly yelling " Beat Mohawk, Uno Nuto, I Hate Rabbits, and Nassstrooovviaaa " at the beginning of each race. Even brighter mo- ments were when everyone beat on " Diamond " Dick Denesha, and wearing party hats in the showers while smoking cigars after winning Western Mass. Other members on the team are seniors Joe Niem- czura, Sandy Waskiewitz and Micheal Bland; juniors George Slate, Mike Shifflett; sophomores Mike Schifflet, Dean Whitney, Ed Stanizusky; and fresh- men John Bonsignore, Jon Waldron, Rick McGinn, and Rick Denesha.

Fverv thing from sandw iches to hard cider. And now their storv is told. The girls volleyball team got off to a very good start this season. fter playing six different schools the Amherst team remains undefeated. Volleyball being the shortest season of all made it quite hectic to play fortv-one games in the course of six weeks. V ' olleyball seems to be declining in popularity. It went from four teams in ' 71 to sometimes less than two teams in ' 72. The highlight of the season was the " Playday Tour- nament " . When one team decided not to come Amherst was allowed two teams. The first game of the tournament proved to be quite a fight for Am- herst ' s first team. After being down by six points in the first half they came back to win it by two points. Amherst was the winner of the Playday. They out- scored any team in the tournament by sixty points. Amherst had three girls nominated for All-stars — Cindy Lyman, Sue Wallace, and Donna Tudryn. Team Record A.R.H.S. OPP Turners Falls 35 4 30 16 41 9 Greenfield 31 8 Team Record A.R.H.S.

The many participants (and kibitzers) can be found any period of the day in the student lounge practicing their craft on the board. The five best players of the club comprise Amherst ' s Chess Team which competes in the Wes- tern Mass. Chess League. Playing Board Onethisyear will be jon Samit, assisted by team members Warren Shepherd, Paul Rodman, Matt Maul- don, and Chris Lyon. Advisor Paul Judson anticipates Amherst cap- turing the league title in matches of December and January. The Art Club is a group of dedi- cated student artists who work with advisor Blanche Derby on projects of the individual ' s interest. The club holds a Christmas Bazaar at school and a larger enterprise on the Com- mon in the spring. They hope to use the profits from these sales to finance a trip to New York and to buy more supplies. Thespians ' Fall Production was the hilarious comedy, Come Rain Or Shine.

The Thespians sponsored a dance, attended a Massachusetts High School Drama Guild workshop, celebrated a Christmas party, and most importantly, Thes- pians provided the backbone for the Fall Production, Come Rain Or Shine. Under the di- rection of Thespian advisor Marge Coffing, many new fa- ces were brought to the stage on December 1, 2, and 3, in the delightful and successful com- edy. College students who can ' t participate, lovers who can ' t communicate, parents who don ' t tolerate, and old ladies who aggravate, antici- pate, and dominate. In all, fifteen zany characters com- bined to provide a nostalgic and whimsical look at the 1950 ' s. The Television Show is an ambitious weekly project which is largely student-run. The half- hour show is the result of the efforts of journalism classes which prepare the features, and student moderators, cameramen and directors. With the help of jane Price, Bruce Penniman, and john Fuller, the show is taped at a Wednesday evening session and edited for televising Thursdays at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. on local channel 8. The audio-Visual Club under the advisorship of Richard Roy continues to be one of the more active student organizations. President Carey Parrish, Vice President Pete Schoenberger, secre- tary Nancy Berger and treasurer Ray Babb have helped organize fall activities which included a trip to Framingham to hear jerry Lewis speak on the finer aspects of television production. Mem- bers are among those responsible for extra- curricular A-V work, such as televising of town meetings, taping of school concerts, and the pro- duction of the television show. Audio-Visual.

For the most part, they are a profit making organization. This years project consisted of raising money to be used for the purchase of an electric scoreboard to be placed on the football field. This project in- cluded the selling of candy bars, stationary, and organization of school dances. The fa- miliar faces of this group were often seen running the concession at football and bas- ketball games. Cheerleaders. This group of cheering voices never went unnoticed at all the sports events in Amherst High. One of their highlights this year included the participation in a cheering clinic at the University of Massachusetts. Both the j.V. and Varsity cheerleaders par- ticipated in the clinic along with many other squads from schools in Massachusetts. The cheerleaders were often found across from the boy ' s locker room selling candy after school. This year there were only five varsity members and the junior varsity membership totaled nine. For the second year the boys participated in the cheering, forming their own squad, and helping the girls as much as possible. Boy Cheerleaders. Fron left: R Boucher, R Kellogg. Second row: J.

Offhand 1 would say a yearbook is something to remind you of high school after you ' ve left. Nothing is wrong with that, not a thing. In reality yearbooks give only a nostalgic idea of school life. In twenty years you might go through yours to help you remember old friends, or what-it-was-like-back-then. In this situation it is ob- vious that you don ' t remember high school because you need a year book to help you. Of course the year- book, being nostalgic, shows you only the nice side of school and so you end up thinking, " What a happy person I was and what a great place ole ARMS was when I was there. " For many people going to school is like banging your head against a wall every day. You keep on doing it, it hurts so much and you never learn not to in spite of all that pain. Where is this side of the yearbook? Where are the pictures of the girls getting kicked out of the bathroom for smoking, or the epithets praising the dropouts and sus- pendees? Where is there a picture of the boredom of many students who constantly skip their classes, and do it out of boredom? These are only examples of the seemier side of high school experience. What this essay boils down to is that yearbooks lie for a majority of students. Seth Rothberg The statement that " yearbooks lie for a majority of students " is one that has struck in our minds since Seth ' s essay was published in the spring of ' 72. For us, he said it all. Now the problem was what to do from there. As Editors, we felt it was our responsibil- ity to at least attempt to end this lie. All throughout the year we have tried to get members of the school community involved in the Goldbug. To open up the yearbook, instead of confining it to a small cubical in the planning room. In the three school life sec- tions lie the results. I I danced to school today, for it was raining. I learned from the Sky this fine morning . . .Rain is the messenger between the Sky and Earth. And the message it brings is . .Life . . .but . . .1 walked into that so protected building, dripping with joy, and was informed I was tardy. I wanted to write them an excuse to ex- plain and share my reason for forgetting Time. But it didn ' t have a parent ' s sig- nature. And another clock day had begun, but my day had ended. 49 " Sometimes everything is so clear in my mind and I feel beautiful. But lots of other times I feel so rushed with things I have to do, things I need to learn, relationships I want to improve or establish, and things I want to do, that I be- come overly frustrated. " Note: TO ALL STUDENTS . . .We as students have as much power as we give ourselves. We must believe that. Trying to change things is hard and it hurts, but unless we want our lives run by people we don ' t know or trust, we must get involved and make personal sacrifices for the good of our sanity. We all bitch about the WRONG, but it takes more than bitching. It takes unified student Action. Believe it. IT IS UP TO US.

Not enough! Under Coach Kneeland the team jelled and rolled to a 16-2 Hamp- shire league record and earned themselves the Hampshire league title, something everyone in Am- herst has been waiting 11 years for. For Coach Knee- land, he ends his basketball career here on a good note. John Stosz had a 12.8 average per game and pulled down 167 rebounds and also helped the team by playing fine defense throughout the whole year. Russ Campion earned a starting job and ended up leading the team with the highest scoring avg. 13.9 along with second in rebounding with a total of 141. Many seniors helped the team such as Forward Dave Fischer who was a steady influence on the team with a nine point average. Steve Klemer who transferred from India, had a few hot nights when the rest of the team seemed cold. The real story of this year ' s team was the depth of the bench. Many players could come into the game and blend right into the action. Jim Matusko (175 pts.) 106 re- bounds), Jim Rogers (97 pts.) Pete Godfrey (27 pts.) along with Juniors Mike Abramson, who had a 13.5 average from the outside, and John Smyth, and also sophomore guards Mike Piccus and Gary Stanitis all gained varsity experience. The varsity players will long remember Russ Cam- pion getting razz from Coach Kneeland about his bright blue sneakers as well as Campion and Matuszko busting a few bikes during practice. A surprise scrimmage with the giants from Tech will also be remembered. The J.V. team had a outstanding season under Coach Styspeck, compiling a 19-1 record. Out- standing players for the team were Rob Chametzky, Jeff Perchack, Lauren Oaks, Nir Giladi, Joe Wiley, John Smith, Ed Scott, and Paul Thorton. VARSITY RECORD A.R.H.S. OPP.

In their first year of action in the Berry Division they showed all of Springfield just who was No. 1 with a 5-4 overtime victory against Cathedral for the Berry Division Crown. They finished with a 13-2-2 record in the League and added wins over St. Josephs and Greenfield and a tie against Falmouth for an overall record of 15-2-3. With a little from Steve Price ' s white turtleneck . . . Billy Whittemore ' s consistent lateness . . . and Coach Gallagher ' s pre-game pep talks, the Hurri- canes put together a combination that was hard to beat. Tri-captains Billy Whittemore, Steve Price, and Jon Archer led the team as seniors this year. Jon led the team in scoring with 19 goals and 29 assists for a total of 48 points and fourth top scorer in Western Mass. Division One play. Springfield soon learned that Amherst Hockey wasn ' t just a myth. VARSITY RECORD A.R.H.S. OPP.

Four of the five losses were decided by close margins coming down to the last few matches. Rabbis raiders also fared well at the Western Mass. Tournament finishing seventh, their highest placement ever. Outstanding wrestlers were senior tri-captains John Scanlon (HWT.) 11-1 and a third place finish in Western Mass., Tom Hankinson (185) 11-2, fourth in Western Mass., Matt Corcoran (121) 8-0-1. Also senior Mike Keedy (140) finished 11-1, fourth in Western Mass. Returning next year are Glenn Sto- well (128) and Rob Macleod (107) who both had 10-3 records, Steve Hasbrouck (115) 5-2-1, Roger Boucher (147) 8-4, Ed Ford (100) was 7-6 in his first year of wrestling. Other promising newcomers were Bob Progulske (134) 6-6, Barry Graham and Hubby Jackson (167). The wrestling team enjoyed playing G Period basketball, eating pancakes with Granby, taking the shortcut through Deerfield and continuous light- weight, heavyweight wars. The highlight of the season occurred when Am- herst scored a stunning upset over highly ranked Pittsfield. The season was a good one except for the fact that no one would stop kicking Keedy ' s dumb old hound around. VARSITY RECORD A.R.H.S. OPP.

Sue Walas, Kate Stanne, and Donna Tudryn, leaders of the team all year, were named to the starting W. Mass. All-Star team. The JV ' s also had an excellent year under coach Giard, boasting an over-all record of 13-2 and finish- ing in a tie for the top spot in the league. VARSITY RECORD A.R.H.S. OPP.

SKI TEAM SQUASH The Amherst Regional Ski Team had their most successful season ever posting a 6-0 record in Hamp- shire League Division B to edge out Holyoke for first place under the guidance of first year coach John Cushing. The most consistent skier for the Hurri- canes was Stan Allen who won all but one meet. Other important contributors were senior co- captains Dave Gere and Ed Mientka Marty Bak, Martha Epstein and Michelle Sagalyn, Bill Pickering and Ron LaVerdiere and Dan Fisk. Gil Mottia also occasionally occupied a seat on the bus. The season will be remembered to the team by optional practices, early dismissal from school, rolls and yogurt, snow shoveling and dentist appoint- ments, losing tickets, and beating on Fisk. The 1972-73 season marked the second year of the existence of squash as a varsity sport at the high school. This school can boast being the number one public school in New England since there is no other public school that lists squash as a varsity sport in New England. The team was coached this year by Paul Judson and Bill Serues and used the Amherst College courts as their practice facilities. Although the final record of the team was a medi- ocre 4-6, this season marked several notable achieve- ments on both the team and individual level. This season marked the first time that any high school team (going back to the years when squash was a club sport) beat Williston Academy varsity team. The high school did so in convincing fashion 6-1 at Williston this year. Two other victories came at the expense of Williston teams. Amherst defeated the Williston jV ' s twice decisively. This season also marked the end of a truly illus- trious squash career for Ken Quarles. He had the accomplishment of playing in the top position in every match he played in for two straight years. Other members of the team included Tom White, Bill Slocombe, Brian Vlach and Sue Schoenberger. White ended the year with the best winning per- centage. Returning next year are Lance Lundberg, Wen Lin, Dave Culbertson, Pete Schoenberger, Chris Beckett, George Slate and Evan Romer.

Amherst was hampered by having a lack of swimmers, having only 14, while competing against teams with 30 to 40 swimmers. For its size, the Swim Team was very strong, sending 9 of its 14 members to the state meet. The team was especially strong in free style where Doug Logan, Rob Monroe, and Ben Crooker usually took first or second. Other free stylers were Ethan Mann, Kevin Picha, John Dalton and Frank Holcomb. The breaststroke was handled by Marc Navon, Vic Staley and Bobby James. Also, Steve Bischoff and Duane Freeman provided strength in the backstroke. Duane also deserves credit for his diving, a position he was drafted into this year left vacant from the graduation of Jeff Crouse. Toward the end of the season, the work of Coach Jim O ' Donnell began to pay off as they lost several close meets and won the last one to remain in B division. The season ended on a good point as the team managed to score more points in the New England competition than they did in the State Meet the week before. Boys J.V. Basketball. From left: T. Lee, B.

The Council initiated new programs including a receipt system for books and an independent study agreement contract. Much time and effort was spent on a proposal to make Physical Education pass fail and X-phased, and on planning a Career Day. This year ' s officers were Eva Gibavic, president, Doug McGarrah, vice-president, and Lisa Savereid, secretary-treasurer. Student Council. From left: S. Culbertson, S. Hundahl, M. Epstein, S.

The Student School Committee is a group of five high school students and four junior high members who meet with the Superintendent and the building Assistant Principals and also who are required by law to meet with the School Com- mittee every two months. Some of the Commit- tees main projects this year included a Grievance Procedure, OVAL, (Optional Viable Alternatives in Learning), specifically junior High Open Cam- pus and new scheduling possibilities. The National Honor Society is made up of 38 seniors and 45 juniors. This year ' s officers were Ben Crooker, president, Doren Fredrickson, vice president, Mary Connelly, secretary, and Tim Waldron, treasurer. NHS ' s main project was rais- ing money for a scholarship to be awarded to a ARHS senior. They also nominate two members for the NHS National Scholarship. i 83 As Schools Match Wits. This team competes an- nually with other teams from Western Massa- chusetts and Northern Connecticut on Chan- nel 22 in Springfield. Its members put in their hours, preparing for their matches, after school by quizzing each other on questions from cate- gories used on the actual quiz program. This year ' s team was defeated by Deerfield Academy in their competition with teams from the sur- rounding area. Debate. The Debate Team has doubled its mem- bership this year with 14 novices and 6 return- ing varsity debaters. The team enjoyed a very successful fall season. The entire squad won the sweepstakes trophy at the University of Massa- chusetts. Dan Golden and Tom Farb, as varsity switchside, placed in the octo-finals at U. Mass., first place at Cheverees High School in Main, and 9th, out of 87, at Hendrick Hudson High School in New York. Dave Ford and Dave Cul- bertson placed 1st affirmative team and Alison Goodzeit and Scott French placed 3rd negative team in the novice division at Barringtown High School in Rhode Island. The 4-man unit of Ron Friedman, D. D. DeShields, Alison Goodzeit, and David Ford placed 5th at the Cheverees High School. David, Alison, and Tom have re- ceived various speaker awards.

The varsity Gymnastics team had it ' s first competition this year. After getting off to a slow start, due to the inability of find- ing a coach, the team had three weeks to practice as a whole before it ' s first meet with Deerfield Academy, Although Amherst lost 35-58 it was an exceptional moral victory. All members of the team performed quite well amd the meet was good experience for the entire team. This year ' s team marks the path for all the other teams that will follow in varsity competition.

For those who have been in band in previous years the same held true. This was the first year the band has had so much to offer. First, there was the organization of the Pep Band which brought enthusiasm to everyone that was involved. Then, along with the Pep Band, a Stage Band and Small Ensembles were introduced. One of the biggest highlights this year was the success- ful exchange trip with Willow Grove, Penn- sylvania. The band financed the trip on their own through means of various fund raising activities and was also able to provide their guests with a dinner-dance with the gener- ous help of band and parent patrons and local merchants. The Band also traveled to Hartford to play an open-air spring concert on WTIC. This year the band a total of 11 concerts. Among them included the Am- herst Fair Concert, Fall and Winter Concerts, Memorial Day Concert, a school assembly, and of course a concert at Graduation Ex- ercises. The band was greatly aided by the help of various clinics, guest conductors, and the appreciated time from many mem- bers of the U. Mass. Music Department. Orchestra. During the 1972-1973 year, the orchestra, 55 students, 43 of them string players, was part of the Maximus Program, in which instrumental music students were able to enjoy a wide variety of musical ac- tivities including string orchestra, full or- chestra, sectional rehearsals, chamber music ensembles, chorus, conducting, compo- sition, and a contemporary music ensemble. Woodwind, brass, and percussion players from both Concert and Symphony Bands were periodically added to the string or- chestra to create a full orchestra comple- ment. The most exciting event for the orchestra was the Exchange Concert with Salem, Mass. A weekend bus trip to Salem with much music, sightseeing, and socializing started April in lively fashion, and May featured the Salem H.S. Orchestra in concert with the Amherst Orchestra. Members of the Or- chestra also participated in a community concert at the Amherst Nursing Home, and accompanied the Chorale and Chorus in performances of Faure, Mozart, and Beetho- ven twice this year. Honors received by orchestra members include admission to the Springfield Young Peoples ' Symphony, the U. Mass. Honors Chamber Orchestra, the MMEA Western District Symphony Orchestra and the Mass. All-State Orchestra. TRI-S FORMAL " A LOVELY WAY TO SPEND AN EVENING " Business Careers Club. From left: J. Vassallo, S. Carev, T. Janse, L. Drake. Second row: S. Mientka, A. Howard, ). Gilbert, V.

In December, fourteen members traveled to Boston where they toured the Federal Reserve Bank of the First Federal Reserve District. In the afternoon they visited large department stores before returning to Amherst. A trip was also planned for the mini- courses. RECALLED LOR REVISION By William C. Miller EDSEL MEMORIAL HIGH SCHOOL ANYWHERE, U.S.A. Dear Parents of our Graduates: As you are aware, one of your offspring was graduated from our high school this June. Since that time it has been brought to our attention that certain insufficiencies are present in our graduates, so we are recalling all students for further education. We have learned that in the process of instruction we provided we forgot to in- stall one or more of the following: — at least one salable skill; — a comprehensive and utilitarian set of values; — a readiness for and understanding of the responsibilities of citizenship . . . . . . A recent consumer study consisting of a follow-up of our graduates has revealed that many of them have been released with defective parts. Racism and materialism are serious flaws and we have discovered they are part of the makeup of almost all our products. These defects have been determined to be of such magnitude that the model pro- duced in June is considered highly dangerous and should be removed from circulation as a hazard to the nation .... . . . Some of the equipment which was in the past classified as optional has been reclassified as standard and should be part of every product of our school. Therefore we plan to equip each graduate with: — a desire to continue to learn; — a dedication to solving problems of local, national and inter- national concern; — several productive ways to use leisure time; — a commitment to the democratic way of life; — extensive contact with the world outside the school; — experience in making decisions . . . I , •a In addition, we found we had inadvertently re- moved from your child his interests, enthusiasm, motivation, trust and joy. We are sorry to report that these items have been mislaid and have not been turned in at the school Lost and Found De- partment. If you will inform us as to the value you place on these qualities, we will reimburse you promptly by check or cash. As you can see, it is of your interest, and vitally necessary for your safety and the welfare of all, that graduates be returned so that these errors and oversights can be corrected. We admit that it would have been more effective and less costly in time and money to have produced the product correctly in the first place, but we hope you will forgive our error and continue to respect and support your public schools. Sincerely, s P. Dantic, Principal SENIORS 99 CLASS OF 1973 Throughout the last three years, these two people, Paul Lengieza and Marty O ' Neill have served as advisors to our class. They know, as do the officers, that its been a long three years. From elections, re-elections and re-re-elections, to planning the Senior Prom, to Graduation, they have stuck with us.

Ae hope that we have offered a chance for everyone who was in- terested to get involved. The most important thing is that we have certainly learned many things — about ourselves, about working with others. We would like to express our gratitude to those who did take some of the responsibility. We would like to express our deep appreciation to Blanche Derby as editorial advisor this year. She was a never-ending source of energy and enthusiasm. Carry on! W ' e would also like to recognize the Reach [jublication from which some of the articles in our school life sections were found. One unique aspect of this book is our divisions of Fall, Winter and Spring. Spring?? Yes there will be a S|)ting section — the supplement. Make sure you get one ! !
