AMORY, MS VOLUME VDEDICATION
You are always on the move Helping one student or another But you manage to find time To be a wife and a mother.
If you’re not presiding over Thespians Or thinking about speakers you must introduce your are getting us ready for homecoming By directing “Mother Goose.”
You make teaching look like real fun
You hold our attention one way or another The PANORAMA is dedicated to Mrs. Peggy Holmes Yes, Ken’s wife and Hank’s mother.
by H. M. Riley
For seven years Mrs. Holmes has been teaching at Amory High School. She has skillfully guided the Thespians through six years of putting on plays. She also sponsors Youth Congress and Platform Events. Mrs. Holmes is always willing to lend a helping hand to those who are willing to put forth an effort. It is the Panorama’s great honor to dedicated this annual to Peggy Fowlkes Holmes.1984 HOMECOM
The week of October 8-12 was a very exciting and hectic week for students at AHS. Everyone was involved in one way or another whether it was band, football, skit practice, or float building.
The week was climaxed on Friday with a very entertaining program entitled “The Wonderful World of Mother Goose.” The seniors along with Mrs. Holmes and Mrs. Gary put on a hilarious program. A short pep rally followed with the spirit stick going to the seniors.
The identity of the 1984 Homecoming Queen was announced at the conclusion of the Homecoming Program. Geneva Patterson, 1983 Homecoming Queen, revealed Kim Brasfield as the new queen. Friday night Kim was escorted by Tommy Griffith and crowned by Joey Nesbit. During the pre-game ceremony the 1984 Homecoming Court was introduced. The four senior maids were Tracey Coleman escorted by Brad Brasfield; Melana Hamilton escorted by David Egger; Pam Haynes escorted by Brad Avery; and Valerie Smith escorted by Cletus White. The junior class elected Lori Lewellen who was escorted by Brock May. Serving as sophomore maid was Carla Householdder escorted by Chuck Caldwell. The freshman maid was Kim Minor escorted by Greg McNeese.
The winner of the float competition was also announced during the pregame ceremony. The results were: First place, Seniors with “Goose the Tigers”; Second, Sophomores with “Four and Twenty Tigers Baked in a Pie”; Third, Juniors with “Hickory Dickory Dock Scare the Tigers up the Clock”; Fourth, Freshmen with “This Little Tiger Went to Market. .”

Michael David Reeves “Dave”
Mischievous, fun to be around, witty, and full of energy.
Often our natural beings tell us that the death of one as bright and fine is unjust and tragic. But belief in God brings hope. “For Jesus suffered, bled and died that sinners might be sanctified, and to grant God’s children such as I Eternal life in that Home on High.”
— The one thing I want of all is “to go to Heaven.”

— Loved his family, who were his “favorite people,” and his friends. __
I like football very much. I wish that they had a middle school team that could travel and play teams out of town. Football is a very tough sport. And I love it.
Last year the two best teams were the Dallas Cowboys and Steelers. They are good football teams. They have good players that don’t get mad.
My favorite team is the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Oilers. I have liked football since I was real young. Football is one of the most common sports in the world for men. David Reeveg

Th« Panthers finish tha 1984 saason 5-5
The Panthers finished the season 5-5 — not the best, but a great deal more than was expected from the young and inexperienced team, which was seeded last in the district in pre-season predictions.
Amory’s 5-5 record (4-4 in district) placed them fourth in the district behind Pontotoc, Kossuth and Ripley.
Ironically, the Panthers defeated Kossuth and came within three points of downing Ripley earlier in the season.
With only six seniors — Brad Tate, Joey Nesbit, Phillip Morris, John Darden, Glenn Smith, and David McIntosh — facing graduation in 1985, the Panthers look forward to an even better record next year.JUNIORS 1984

The coaches are: Bobby Hall (first year with the team), assistant coach Ed Stanley (first year), and assistant Coach James Lowery (in his second year with the Panthers).
SCRAMBLE! Pursued by a pack of Bulldogs, Panther quarterback Andy Stevens (15) tucks the ball and tries to scramble around the end and free.
A FRIENDLY HANDSHAKE by Keith Flowers and a member of the opposing team.
CAN’T STAY, GOTTA GO. Amory’s Glenn Smith refuses to slow down, even with two Kossuth Aggies begging him to stay awhile.WE DID IT! WE WON! While Jason Robinson (40) just looks astounded, the "We’re Number One” fingers pop up and Coaches Bobby Hall, Ed Stanley and James Lowery get plain old excited.
WE DID OUR BEST Panther fan Lloyd Minor (second from left) passes a word of encouragement to Amory assistant Coach James Lowery, who congratulates players Dale Pruitt (8) and John Darden (80) on a job well done. The Panthers fell 28-7 to the still undefeated Pontotoc Warriors.
PANTHER POWER. An unidentified Amory Panther plows ahead for ground yardage, dragging two Booneville Blue Devils along for the ride. Amory won the game 22-17.
