L The Legacy 1977 Volume 7 Stuarts Draft High School Stuarts Draft, Virginia 24477 Never again to move on, this partly demolished train sits with no hope of ever riding the rail again. TOP LEFT--The prospective class of 1983 will be the first to venture the halls of the new middle school. BOT¬ TOM LEFT — Coach Duncan inspects the new field house which his future football and track players will use. TOP RIGF1T--The community of Sturarts Draft experienced the wonder of nature ' s beauty and the bitterness of Jack Frost, which has proven to be the coldest win¬ ter of the century. BOTTOM RIGHT — Worn with age this old fence looks over the mountain road which offered valu¬ able experiences to many students. 2 Moving On With u brand new middle school building, our new field house, and a brand new plant on the way, all have proven that the little community of Stuarts Draft was moving on to bigger and better things. With a total number six hundred sixty-four graduates from S. D. H. S. since 1971, many have moved on to new places, new jobs, and to form new families. 3 Beginning . . . End As the gray hairs began to appear on the once new cougar and names of previ¬ ous students faded on the backs of desks, we realized time was moving on. When the school started seven years ago everything was brand new and the cougar was a spry kitten, time was just beginning. Now years later the school, worn with age and students never again to sit in the desks, we see that time has cherished its memories forever in our hearts. TOP LEFT--The buses ready to move on, carry the students home early one Monday morning due to a natural gas crisis. BOTTOM LEFT--The library provides a short way for many stu¬ dents, which will be cut off when shelves are put up to form walls. TOP RIGHT--The school has passed on its generation of students to build their own future lives. MIDDLE-- Students hurry and wait in long lines to get a nourishing meal! BOTTOM RIGHT--At this time students are rushing to their lockers, out to the buses, and to their cars, to get away from a hard day at school. 4 5 mM Some students always com¬ plained because there wasn ' t anything to do. Some kids in¬ volved in school life moved on with the varied activities such as Homecoming, mock elections, a Shakespearean play, " Freedom Jam, " " Nutz n Boltz, " and all other activities. I lowever, the complainers also attended the assemblies causing disturb¬ ances to lessen the enjoyment of others. Solutions for this prob¬ lem were sought by faculty and students together. Although per¬ fect behavior was not attained, the activities continued to move on the year.

ABOVE — Crowning the Homecoming Queen, Sue Wright, is Mr. von Seldeneck. 8 AIM October 8 and 9 will go down in the memories of Stuarts Draft as a very special Homecoming. It was the first Homecoming victory in the school ' s history. The theme of Homecoming 1976 was " Out of Space " and the activites were out of space. Each class constructed a float for competition. The floats were brought in front of the grandstand during halftime and the tenth grade class was judged the best. Chosen as Homecoming Queen was Sue Wright. Homecoming King was Phillip Spalding, and the King and the Queen danced together to the band, Ma¬ gic Touch. The cafeteria was decorated with alumi¬ num foil and stars to give an out of sight effect. Even though rain domi¬ nated the events, every¬ one had a fantastic time. LEFT--Pointing out Jon Short ' s better qualities are powder- puff cheerleaders Jeff Shipe, Phillip Spalding and Tony Musick. BELOW--Taking a rest from the sounds of Magic Touch are Janet Brown, Patti Faini, Laura Martinez and their dates during the Home¬ coming dance. 9 ■ i A Heated Election And A Cold Winter Affects The People Of Stuarts Draft The year 1976 was jam packed full of im¬ portant events. The event that captivated the world ' s attention was the presi¬ dential election. According to the Stuarts Draft High School polls. President Ford was elected by a landslide over Jimmy Carter. Presi¬ dent Ford was accurately portrayed by Bill Vance and Mr. Carter was played by Dennis Neuger. David Mowen acted as Eugene McCarthy, a third party candidate. The three candidates campaigned actively and participated in a debate sponsored by the SCA. Expert analysists re¬ viewed the debates and concluded that the con¬ test was a draw. In a narrow victory, Mr. Carter defeated President Ford in the national election. Mr. Carter had come, in three years, from a relatively unknown politician to our nation ' s president. 10 . ★ AMbRIC AN Al BRI for TOP LEFT--Downtown Waynesboro is desolate after a snowfall.

The decora¬ tions centered around Peanut characters. The teachers ' lounge window featured Lucy, Linus, and Snoopy in action. The scene depicted a snowball fight. " The stockings were hung by the chimney with care " was the mes¬ sage the Peanuts gang shared in a bulletin board drawing. All the gangs united to dance to the mu¬ sic of " Zonker. " Later in the week, the SCA spon¬ sored Christmas Assembly would have gotten Scrooge himself in the Christmas mood. Entertaining music from the Band and Choral Dept, set the atmosphere. A delightful performance of the play " The Night Be¬ fore Christmas " lightened the aura, especially with Mr. von Seldeneck acting out the lead role. ■ ' ' m Christmas Means Fun For Everyone I— j -iiciicujLers onoopy, Lucv.

Land was rezoned for the build¬ ing of a new manufacturing plant, FMC, and building was halted for a short time of the new middle school because of snow.

V. cheerleaders previously gave a party for the football team. Despite the constant problems involved, this year was a successful year for the J. V. cheerleading squad. For the most part, practices weren ' t unbear¬ ably long or strenuous. Certainly, this year will be one always remembered by the cheerleaders on the J. V. squad. Cheerleaders have many friends and are involved in many activities. T Cheerleaders add great style and spirit to all athletic activities. .. .

The Seniors led the masses with the mock election, the magazine campaign, and the Christ¬ mas dance. All classes sponsored various pro¬ jects, social and service, to promote the well-being of the school. The eighth grade class stood out as the largest class in the school ' s history, with 256 members.

Some planned to go to college; others found jobs. During the year the Senior Class sponsored the Mock Election in which only Senior Class members partici¬ pated. Seniors also sponsored the Christmas dance. With a full year behind them the Class of ' ll well deserved their diplomas.

Enthusiasm and the growing spirit of the Sophomore class was clearly displayed in various ways throughout this year. The tenth-graders co-spon- sored a " 50 ' s Dance " with the eighth grade class which proved entertaining for all attending. In addition, the Sophomores prepared a float for the Homecoming week which took a great deal of hard work and effort. This work was not in vain as the Sopho¬ mores ' " Hawaiian Float” won first place in the judging of all floats en¬ tered. Many other activities were sponsored and supported by the Soph¬ omore class, such as bake sales, selling megaphones and many other school wide activities.

New elective classes and more advanced required courses found ninth graders working harder than ever. 1W JACK KEVIN BLACKA March 25, 1962— October 28, 1976 It saddens us all, but yet we know That life must end, the further we go. Kevin was a dear friend to all who knew him; His love and kindness suddenly gone, Made our hearts grow dim. With a cheery smile, and a wave of tire hand, He has wandered into an unknown land. Nature is a great demand Which Kevin loved and could understand. So as we look on, think of him and say He is not dead— He is just away. — Cindy Morris Freshmen Get More Involved Fervently grasping hold of the Class of 1980, a newfound wisp of school spirit found the freshmen more involved in school and extracurricular life than before. Seeming to enjoy their second year at high school, the ninth graders got involved in in¬ terscholastic and intra¬ mural sports, numerous clubs, and other organiza¬ tions and activities. They found themselves looking more toward a career, as special guidance programs and interesting classes spurred them on to possible future plans. For Stuarts Draft High School ' s Class of ' 80, this year was a time for recol¬ lection and speculation, as 1976 turned out to be a very good year.

The Girls ' Track team fought Riverheads all through the season, and they were victorious in becoming State Champions which was very rewarding to first year coach Bunni Hearn.

Exams were important for many college bound students, but for others it was just another test. Last minute fines were paid off and goodbyes were given to teachers that had experienced the Senior class. As graduation became closer so did the rain which spoiled the plans for an outside ceremony. The night of graduation was full of excitement, tear-stained faces, and well wishes from the speaker, Lynda John¬ son Robb. As Seniors went to homerooms to receive their last belongings, a sad at¬ mosphere filled the halls of the school. As the parking lost emptied, the future lives of the Class of 77 be¬ gan for tomorrow. TOP LEFT--Sue Wright delivers a final speech to the class of 77 as they sit as a group for the last time.
