Nedra Tabbort was elected in the first election, but there was a run-off between James Grant and Edward Thornton. James Grant and Nedra became Mr. and Miss AHS.

Long, long ago, when this Tombigbee region still belonged to Mother Nature and her wild creatures that roamed the sloughs and ridges, maintaining their existence by their cunning and prowess in stalking and hunting, on the one hand, and their ability to escape becoming prey of a more formidable hunter on the other, there lived in this immediate area a den or pace of vicious and cunning panthers whose ambition it was to dominate and control all of the game areas, water holes, and salt licks within their range and put under their complete rule all of the other creatures of the forest. They organized themselves and set about to accomplish this purpose, and since they were a strand of creatures that included many individual cats of unusual strength and ability, they were not long in achieving their purpose. However, as is often the case when there are many powerful and talented individuals in such a conspiracy, the prolonged existence of their domination was at times in jeopardy because of the need for one leader for the pack who might be able in some manner to reconcile the driving ambitions of the big cats and unify their powers and talents for the common good. It was in fulfilling this need that the fates seemed to smile on the ambitious project of these creatures, for as their dominion began to spread and the plans and purposes of powerful leaders began on occasion to conflict, there came to the fore one of their number who, though not possessed necessarily with all of the outstanding qualities and strengths of all of the cats, (and indeed no two of die remarkable animals possessed identical abilities or talents in kind) nevertheless, he did seem to be able to come through with the peculiar and particular contribution necessary to reconcile these differences and unify the strengths of the pack into a force that established their domain and placed the entire area securely under their ways. This remarkable panther, though not as large and powerful as some, not as cunning or resourceful as others, did, however, bear a mark that seemed somehow to distinguish and identify him. He possessed a coat of distinctive golden sheen, and his dealings with other was as distinctive as his coloring. Sometimes a smart spat of needle sharp claws across a snarling nose brought harmonious cooperation out of a mighty hunter that held others at bay while he gorged himself on the kill. Again a session of docile playfulness and soft purring would dispel the mounting tensions that would have led to domestic discord and strife, particularly among the mother cats or kittens. For all that might be said of him, he was a leader. Maybe not in all, nor necessarily in any one area was he outstanding, but when the occasion arose he was available with the contribution, unique and distinctive, that met the need at hand.The era and reign of this remarkable pantherdom has long since receded before the forces of man and his civilization which had cleared the forests, drained the swamps, driven out the game, and tapped and put into use other resources of nature so abundant in this region and more adpatable to man's particular needs. However, the spirit and purpose of this remarkable panther pack still survives in the life and purpose of some of those who now occupy this land whose plans and purposes, potentialities and abilities, are similar in spirit if not in fact. The gold in their school colors is symbolic of the loyalty to what is right and best for all their number, plus the courage and resourcefulness to be effective in helping accomplish that right. It is altogether fitting and proper that the recognitions that we give to respective leaders and outstanding students of our student body today, be such that recognize also these qualities of leadership as exemplified by that golden panther of long ago. We would be in keeping with the spirit of tradition to call this award for meritorious achievement the Golden Panther Award, to be presented at this time each year to the Amory High School Panthers whose contributions and achievements have, through the high school years just passed, been distinctively significant in advancing the ideals and purposes for which Amory High School stands and the program that is designed to achieve those ideals. 17... of being elected to who's who ... Being elected to Who's Who is every student's dream-a dream that come true for a few lucky seniors.

This year the Panorama staff dedicates the '75 annual to the teacher who has helped us, as students, not only as we study to learn facts and information but also as we learn to face the world and take on responsibility. We take this opportunity to say thank you-for the smile you gave us when we were all a lone-the smile that said, I understand ; for all the times your smile and zeal for life made everything worthwhile.... a time to salute ... Perhaps no faculty member is less appreciated or has more varied responsibilities than a school principal. He is a collector of books, fines, complaints, excuses, blame and what-have-yous. He must keep accurate records of attendance in registers, track down hookey-players, preside at assemblies, oversee such school functions as float-building, ball games, practices, etc. He helps maintain the building, even to the extent of sweeping and mopping, and often has the unhappy and unpleasant task of disciplining students. Sometimes he is at the building from seven a. m. until eleven p. m. Three-ten every day finds him at the corner, directing traffic. WE SALUTE OUR PRINCIPAL, MR. LARRY MARETT, FOR A JOB WELL DONE! OR IN MIDDLE SCHOOL VERNACULAR, YOU DONE GOOD! 33... a time to mourn .
