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. 3PANORAMA STAFF 1986 ”...

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 . . . Top left: Bad to the bone? Top right: Delinquent elves can be dangerous. Bottom: Lunch Bunch9AS THE CURTAIN OPENED, 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!)

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 . . .

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.
