A WORD FROM OUR SPONSOR..........121
All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts ..."
William Shakespeare As You Like It
Act II, scene viiDEDICATION
Bill Miley is a man who plays many roles. He is a husband, a father, an active church member, a teacher, a coach, a hall monitor, an assistant principal, an AIM co-ordinator, and a man who truly cares — about his students, his co-workers, and his fellow man.
We proudly dedicate the 1986 PANORAMA to Mr. Bill Miley.

5THE PROPS WERE READY . . .
The building was there — doors open, floors shining, restrooms cleaned — in wait; Mr. Marett and Mrs. Grissom had finally scheduled everybody, well, almost everybody, and the cards were typed; boxes of bookcovers rested on that ancient rolling cart waiting for books to fill them; teachers were already mimeographing; and A.J. was pushing his dust mop one more time . ..THE ACTORS WERE IN PLACE
and they came in all shapes, sizes, colors — dressed in jeans, khakis, t-shirts, suits, ties, sneakers, boots; with mousse, without mousse; looking like Don Johnson and looking like the girl or guy next door . . .

Students joined clubs and yelled at games and marched in the band and worked on projects and made friends and talked to teachers and took school trips and acted in plays and went to bowl games and competed in competitions and had triumphs and defeats and fun — and even want to class ...
10THE DIRECTOR SAID . . .
Shakespeare was the greatest playright of all time (even if WE can’t always understand him). Typing is a skill you can use all your life (Amen, with a research paper to type). This can easily be solved with an algebraic equation (BUT, I need to go to the library or was that the chemistry lab?). Yes, folks, we ARE making history right now!! (And we are!)

The announcement of the Homecoming Court and their escorts helped to cap off a week of exciting activities. Crowned as Homecoming Queen was Lori Lewellen, who was escorted by Brock May. Other senior maids and their escorts were Vettra Standifer, escorted by Arthur Morgan; Traci George, escorted by Ray Clark; Jerri White, escorted by Joseph Earles; and Wendy Walker, escorted by Trip Wiygul. Junior Maid was Carla Householder, who was escorted by Chuck Caldwell. Sophomore maid was Terri Stewart, who was escorted by David Pritchard. Freshman maid was Tracey Brown; she was escorted by Keith Thompson. The coronation took place on the field just prior to kickoff time for the homecoming football game.
I'ndet the direction of Mrs. Peggy Holmes and Mrs. Mtsste Gary and v« ivh the participation v t every senior and half of the faculty, the homecoming vkit was one of the most successful and entertaining ever! Playing to an audnorium packed with alumni, parents, and students — every performer had a starttng tote ,,,
18AHS Putting on the Hits was emceed by Brock May, playing Rusty Faucet, and featured such acts as the Celes -tial Choir and the Rev. Dr. Billy Frank Birmingham, Miss Dolly Tubb, the Smokin' in the Boys' Room Group, the "Cheerleaders (?)”, Miss Cindy Lauper and Miss Diana Ross with the New Attitudes, interrupted by hilarious commercials — topping off the program was Mr. Riley's annual announcement that the homecoming game would be a home game again this year.
. . . ON THE HITS!

In the springtime each organization at Amory High School was asked to select a sweetheart. Each group then set to work to chose a young lady representative of that organization. All of the talented young ladies chosen play many roles — each is an active member of the organization she represents, many hold leadership positions in these organizations, some have competed on regional and state level for their organizations, and all are enthusiastic students at Amory High School, willing to become involved in school life to make their high school careers more enjoyable. The PANORAMA is proud to picture each one of these lovely young co-eds. And now, the 1986 AHS SWEETHEARTS . . .

The North Half Little Ten co-champions donned their suits and ties and boarded the bus for the big game — they were treated to a great time in Memphis by the bowl promoters, played a great game, and returned to Amory to a police escort and crowds of cheering fans.

— JUNIOR SENIOR BANQUET —
Bobby Spratt rocked to an Elvis number, hula girls danced, serving girls wearing leis waited tables, and the seniors of 1986 celebrated. The Junior Senior Banquet, "Fantasy Island,” provided a great evening of entertainment, a delicious meal, and a last chance for the entire class to be together to celebrate before graduation. Pictured here a group shot; pass it on, T.W.; suits and ties?; smile pretty, and "Serve you?”THE ACTORS TAKE . .

155As the curtain closes on another year at AHS, and each teacher, student, administrator, employee has strutted and fretted his "hour" upon the stage, it is an excellent time for reflection —
It takes many man hours to complete an undertaking as great as our school's yearbook, the PANORAMA. This does not mean that one ''man" undertakes the task out of the goodness of his heart alone. It should mean that many put in hours to complete the task. After all, many hands make light the work. As this book appears with its faults and its merits, some will take undeserved credit, and others will take little or no credit even though deserving — an unfortuante situation. However, such is the situation with any project.
Our hope is that each subscriber will cherish this record of our school year 1985-1986 — because with the apathy experienced this past year at AHS as far as the yearbbok work was concerned, this could well be the last full-length record for some time.
Suggestions in the Amory High School - Panorama Yearbook (Amory, MS) collection:
