once in a lifetime C‘E C‘t S S‘A ' T«A Once in a lifetime . . . Many events recur throughout our lives. Seasons change; birthdays and holidays are celebrated annually. Presidential elections and the Olympics come around every four years. People usually buy new cars every five to ten years; most also will move to new homes at least two or three times in their lives. But some events occur only once in our lives. The reappearance of Halley’s Comet this year prompted us to think of those special times which we can only experience once. The comet, which visits the inner solar system only every seventy-six years, was last seen in 1910. Although the 1 986 view of Halley was not as spectacular as before, to miss even glimpsing it was to miss the chance of a lifetime. 1 986 DECUSSATA Andrean High School Merrillville, Indiana Student Life 10 Freshmen 32 Academics 40 Sophomores 70 Sports 78 Juniors 112 Organizations 120 Seniors 144 Year in Review 168 Community 176 Index 195 Acknowledgments 200 2 — Introduction We reflect upon the events in our lives and realize that some of them, which seemed insignificant at the time they occurred, now occupy special places in our hearts and memories. Why are these few memories cherished more than the others . . .? They occurred but once in our lives. Introduction — 5 We remember the fear we felt on our first day of school as freshmen , meeting those first few friends, our foolish escapades, that special dance, the winning varsity team, a momentous retreat, and the last day with diplomas in our hands and tassels on our hats. 6 — Introduction Our cheers fade , faces in the classrooms change, and we move on. But not everything changes; the spirit of Andrean remains with us. We have the memories of all of our fortunes and mishaps, of our successes and failures, and — reminded by the speeding comet — of our once in a lifetime experiences. 8 — Introduction Student Life Remember . . .

Student Life — 11 Winter Fun Council Brightens the Courtyard On December 4, 1985, student council members put on their hats and gloves and got out the ladders and lights to do the traditional decorating of the spruce tree in the courtyard. After a lively snowball fight, they completed their task; Andrean’s courtyard had a beautiful Christmas tree. UPPER: Dawn LoVerde and Amy Reed pause a moment while decorating the tree.

The parade, beginning at May’s parking lot, was a bonanza of red and gold flowers, balloons, and signs covering trucks, trailers, and convertibles. Although they did demolish the prize-winning senior float, the drizzle and wind did not diminish the Niner spirit. To climax an entire week of festivities the Niners defeated Horace Mann 36-0.

Timely and Totally Trendy Fads and Fad Watching Keep Fashionable Niners Busy over the country. Since the tremendous victory of the Chicago Bears over the New England Patriots in Superbowl XX, Bears paraphernalia has been popular. Rozelle headbands like the one worn by Quarterback Jim McMahon have become a fashion trend. Hairstyles have also undergone some radical changes. “Tails,” “Spikes,” “Mohawks” are in. Flat tops are coming back and many boys are shaving the sides of their heads. Hacky sacks are probably one of the most enjoyable fads we have. With a little practice, anyone can bounce one of these little leather- covered bean bags off his knee or foot. Hacky sacks are great for keeping in shape. Movie stars are a major fashion influence. Sylvester Stallone has created a big market for both “Rambo” and “Rocky” paraphernalia. Pee Wee Herman is also very popular. No one is surprised to see a student walking down the hall humming “Tequila” or dancing very strangely. 20 — Student Life Student Life — 21 CLOCKWISE FROM CENTER: Rob McMahon clowns around.

Classes Clash Class of 87 Wins Fight Amidst a variety of changes, including its many new games and its occurrence on a school day, Armageddon commenced with a Spirit Week, during which students clashed, dressed down, and wore Hawaiian, red and gold, and gym clothes. The games opened with an assembly and the official lighting of the torch. Suit- clad seniors took an early lead with victories in both the eating contest and the class officer relay race. Juniors, though, through consistency, emerged victorious in the day-long struggle with a total of 91 points. Seniors placed second with 75 points, while sophomores and freshmen came in third and fourth respectively.

On May 2, 1986, the Andrean Clown Troupe, made up of nine old members and thirteen new members, presented Clownamania ’86, an exciting graduation and evening full of hilarious clown skits and jokes. After learning and performing before various audiences, new members ended the year with their “graduation.” The evening began with “What is Clownamania?,” a skit which explained the purpose of the show. The skit was followed by more performances and a special clown parade and concert, in which the clowns presented their handmade instruments and costumes. The evening concluded with the Clown Troupe dance. Graduating that evening were Luke Brennan, Michele Erickson, Mike Holland, Kathy Kramek, Jenny Lottes, Charity Rodriguez, Dina Selman, Stacy Stinnett, Tricia Thorn, and Dan Zielinski. For inspiration, advice, and humor, the clowns had help from Calumet Clown Troupe member Polly Benitone.

Student Life 29 Fun Games “Rec night is a great way to unwind from a long week of school,” says sophomore Christina Thiel. Rec night helps to spark class unity and healthy competition between classes. Students play basketball, ping-pong, dodgeball, wallball, and volleyball from 7 to 10. The evening of fun-filled games is sponsored by the Student Council. CO LU 0C LU LU CO LU 0C Li. LU Frolicking Freshmen Student Council Welcomes Incoming Freshmen The freshman picnic to some people means fun, food, games, and a chance to meet others. After events such as the three-legged and the wheelbarrow races, the freshmen received lunch and a free ticket to something more exciting, the first sock hop. After all of the first year jitters were released, thanks to the picnic, they were ready to begin their first year at Andrean. CO LU cc 32 — Freshmen Miriam Abraham Isidro Alba Kyle Allen Eleanor L.

Whether in all-school Masses, religion classes, retreats, or prayers before a physics test, religion is an integral part of each student’s life. The theology department insures a balanced religious atmosphere for students. They are responsible for organizing all Masses, retreats, and days of reconciliation. According to Campus Ministry leader Miss Mullaney, more and more seniors are taking advantage of the overnight retreat program that was instituted last year. These retreats begin on a Friday night when students leave Andrean for Camp Lawrence in Valparaiso. After a weekend of learning about themselves and making new friends, participants return home on Sunday afternoon. UPPER: The Mass at the end of a weekend retreat brings reflection and meditation.

LOWER: Preparing for a mock ceremony in marriage class, Roxanne Gard and Joe Jimenez look for scripture passages to include in the liturgy. Academics — 49 The Play’s the Thing Bard Lives in English Curriculum Shakespeare is alive and well at Andrean High School. By the time he graduates, almost every Niner is well-acquainted with the Bard of Avon, having studied at least four major Shakespearean plays, beginning with Romeo and Juliet his freshman year. Sophomores read Julius Caesar, juniors meet Macbeth, and seniors learn of the tribulations of Hamlet. In addition to his plays, Shakespeare’s songs and sonnets appear throughout the curriculum, and seniors in English 4x study a fifth play, The Tempest. Students learn their Shakespeare from reading, performing, preparing special projects, listening to records, and watching films. According to Mrs. Crary, English department chairperson, “The more you read Shakespeare, the easier it becomes.” LEFT PAGE, UPPER: Rob Hruskovich, Barb Ratkay, and Dwane Peterson, winners of the Merrillville Optimists’ Club essay contest, proudly display their award.

Those two words come to mind when a student thinks of his Advanced Placement science course. “AP Chemistry challenges me to excel and is a great preparation for college, especially because I’m planning on going into engineering,” comments Paul Conarty. Frances Kepes agrees. “I’m thinking of being a biologist, so AP Biology is really beneficial — I may even test out of some college classes because of it.” Most students attest to the fact that AP classes take up much of their time, yet they enjoy the variety of activities. Mary Weber comments, “I like the diversity. One day we may dissect a grasshopper and the next we may study the ecology of the Indiana Dunes. It’s really fun — and it puts me one step closer to my career goals.” UPPER: Teresa Gianoli and Patti Oprish complete their Organic Chemistry assignment.

Andrean students learn the many idiosyncrasies of Andrean’s math teachers while they devour their sage mathematical wisdom. Members of Mr. Giorgio’s classes enjoy the quiet thinking atmosphere of his long meditative silences. Mr. Huber’s classes marvel at his non-stop energy. “I get exhausted just watching him,” said one student. Mr. Gunhouse’s classes enjoy his “You’re okay, I’m okay, everything’s okay” teaching style.

Candidates determined by the primary elections were Republicans Taso Kaiafas, Dave Topp, Brian Van Buskirk, and Susan Craig, and Democrats Steve Michaels, Kirk Zapp, Andy Galler, and Lori Knudson. The candidates’ campaign supporters used posters, slogans, and food to gain popular support. So, in the words of Lori Knudson, “. . . to separate the truly qualified candidates from those who could simply come up with the cutest slogans or serve the sweetest cookies,” Mr. Horvath conducted a press conference. To prepare for it, party activists helped their candidates write papers on eight important issues facing the U.S. government today, as determined by a general survey. All of the government classes then viewed the video-taped con ference. For the convention, activists properly decorated the boys’ gym, complete with banners, posters, and balloons. After completing their platforms, and after many unsuccessful ballots and a caucus, Democrats selected Kirk Zapp in a 39-21 vote over Lori Knudson. They later nominated Andy Galler for Vice-President. After almost seven hours, the convention, characterized by a myriad of deals, broken promises, and strained friendships, concluded, but, as Lori Knudson said, “There were shouts of elation and of anger, tears of joy and disappointment. The entire day was filled with intense anxiety, and all those who attended the convention were feeling emotionally drained.” Mr. Horvath, pleased with the convention and its results, told his classes, “If you left feeling drained, you learned what I wanted you to learn.” Before Christmas break students voted in the final election, choosing Democrats Kirk Zapp and Andy Galler as their winners. Academics — 57 Languages Broaden Understanding Department Ranked Number One in Area In the midst of national concern from educators about the lack of foreign language studies, Andrean has had an increase in the number of students enrolled in foreign languages, especially in third and fourth years of study. A poll taken by Highland High School’s foreign language department ranked Andrean number one in Northwest Indiana in the percentage of students taking a foreign language. Senior Deanna Magura believes, “Having taken Spanish for three years will not only give me a view of the Spanish culture, but will help me better relate to people by speaking their language. This will give me an edge in the job market.” Future help is not the only reason for taking a language. Junior Cherri Monik says, “I’m taking Latin and Spanish because I’m curious about the cultures and languages of other people.” Sister Jane, language department chairperson, summed up reasons for studying foreign languages. “Learning a foreign language not only helps students in future jobs, it also gives them a chance to broaden their knowledge about other people and their cultures. It helps people to be more accepting of people unlike themselves.” RIGHT: Reviewing for a Latin exam, Rob Clayton jots down a few notes from his book.

Academics — 59 Busy-ness Bodies Students Learn Business Basics Few students pass through Andrean without participating in a business course, whether it’s Personal Typing, Typewriting, Shorthand I and II, or Accounting I and II. “Business courses provide a basis for future college courses,” said senior Mark Vician. Headed by Sister Bernice Marie, the business department offers skills students will use for a lifetime. “Taking Personal Typing is a great way to get the basic skills needed to write letters and papers and to use the computer keyboard,” said sophomore Leanne Price. UPPER: Kris Katich and Mike Back concentrate to improve their typing skills. LOWER: Sister Bernice Marie’s typists diligently peck away at the keys. 60 — Academics 4 UPPER LEFT: Kathy Rivera’s fingers move swiftly across the typewriter keys.

RIGHT: Listening to Sr. Bernice Marie, Shane Pearson loses his concentration in typing class. Learning for Life Home Ec-ers Gain Vital Skills “I want my students to learn how to be smart shoppers and independent individuals,” said Mrs. Hevel of the home economics department. In home ec, students learn everything from how to boil water and sew on a button to interior decorating and family money management. Male and female students alike enroll in these classes to learn the practical and necessary lessons of family and independent living and money management.

LOWER: Kathy Silich readies her machine for an hour of sewing. 62 — Academics H-A-C-KIN’ in the AHS Computer Courses Both Beneficial and Fun “I like computer class because I like to learn new things — and this class teaches me a lot, especially where we’re headed in the future,” said senior Chris Brandt. Computer class has become a favorite among seniors. A required course for graduation, seniors enjoy “hacking away” at -it Li the keyboards and inventing new programs. In addition to learning the basics, students take a break from the routine and enjoy computer games during class. UPPER LEFT: Todd Peebles double- checks his program.

Healthful Understanding Teachers Promote Healthy Minds and Bodies “We only have one body, and we should take care of it; health class helps us to do just that,” freshman Diana Giacomin reminds everyone. Diana’s knowledge comes from her participation in Andrean’s required health and safety class, a favorite among freshmen. Students become aware of proper health practices and attitudes, learning in a very comfortable atmosphere. Mr. Rogovich, a health and safety teacher, says, “My main approach in teaching is to make my students comfortable.” Angie Caban remembers all the famous Rogovich puns. “On the first day of school, Mr. Rogovich told us he wouldn’t grade on a curve anymore because once he was almost hit by a truck.” Nevertheless, health class is serious business because a healthy body is just as essential as a healthy mind. Good health promises a productive life, and, guided by Mr. Pishkur and Mr. Rogovich, students learn to understand themselves and others. Academics — Choir, Band Compete Marchers Score Well in Area For the first time in several years, the Andrean marching and concert bands returned to competitive action. Under the direction of Mr. Jasek, the bands scored well in several contests, including the Indiana State High School Music Association marching band contest. At the beginning of the school year, a jazz band was started because, according to Mr. Jasek, “Jazz is the only truly American musical style.” The jazz band replaced the pep band at Andrean basketball games. Throughout the school year the band performed at several school events including Christmas and spring concerts. Under the direction of Fr. Fiore, the Andrean concert choir sang a variety of music such as Gregorian chant, renaissance music, and popular songs. They performed at the Andrean Open House and the Christmas and spring concerts, besides singing at Mass, where said Fr. Fiore, “We sang, not as a choral group, but to enhance the singing of the entire student body.” 66 — Academics UPPER RIGHT: Gordon Walton, David Sepulveda, and Dawn Rucker play a jazz tune during open house.

In class, the radio is always on and that helps me to unwind.” Mr. Listro, the fine arts teacher, explains, “I try to provide a relaxing atmosphere so my students will be comfortable and produce the best works they can.” His students do produce good works. Mr. Listro encourages students to enter art contests, particularly the NIAA art exhibit, and often his students capture top prizes. “I’m always proud after a contest,” he says, “but even if someone doesn’t win an award, I still am proud of him because I know that he has tried his best.” LEFT: Working diligently, Alfredo Davila finishes his art project.

This group, who finished out their high school careers with a six win, four loss season, includes Brad Aeschliman, Bob Boby, Joe Brack, Mike Bujdoso, Rob Crawford, Don Doffin, Rob Holcomb, Josh Janke, Doug Katich, Brian Kellenburger, Mike Kinasiewicz, Tom King, Dan Koulianos, Ralph Larson, Bob Luckiewicz, Tim Mihalik, Jeff Novorita, Jim Osborne, Mark Page, Steve Pavicich, Tom Powell, David Torrence, Dave Toth, and Jeff Viene. Managers were Dan LaMere, Mark Vician, and trainer, Mickey Kopil. Of the 4 losses, 3 were by one touchdown to Noll, Merrillville, and Adams in the second round of the play-offs. Off-season work and football camps, combined with desire, discipline and dedication, helped account for their success. An independent rating service ranked Niner defense number two and pass defense number one in the region. In addition to regular team awards, many players received academic honors. Andrean had five seniors on the Academic All-State Team; they were Brad Aeschliman, Tom King, Mark Page, Tom Powell, and David Toth. Toth was also awarded a special scholarship from the “Thundering Herd,” the Indianapolis Colts Booster Club. These awards go to seniors unable to compete during senior year due to injury. The team awards winners this year were, on offense, John Lustina best offensive back and Brad Aeschliman best offensive lineman. On the defensive side were Hardest Hitter Doug Katich and Best Linebacker Tom Powell. MVP went to Bobby Luckiewicz, while Most Coachable went to Jim Osborne. Mike Falcone was voted MIP.

Co- Most Valuable Players Sam Bennett and Damon Joshua led the freshman team to big wins over Lake Central and Horace Mann. “The win against Horace Mann in the Holiday Tournament was the one that really turned the club around,” commented Brian Kopack, starter. Niners beat a tough Horace Mann club in the championship game of Andrean’s Holiday Tournament. “After we beat Horace Mann we gained confidence in ourselves, and we didn’t think anybody could beat us,” said Sam Bennett, starting center. The freshman B-team, led by Most Valuable Player D6Andr6 Hudson, finished with a 10-3 record. The junior varsity basketball team won four of its last five games to salvage a 10-10 record. The all-sophomore squad capped the season with a 71-42 trouncing of Lowell, scoring more points than any other junior varsity team in Andrean history. Fifty Niner cagers lost 6 ' 6 " starting center Rob Freese three quarters of the way through the season after an accident during practice. “Rob’s injury seemed to fuel us during the last five games. We made up for our loss of height with a lot of heart,” commented Eric Hiduke. Led by leading rebounder Lance Washington, leading scorer Mark Regan, and free throw percentage leader Dan Kilgore, JV Niners outran 10 of their opponents with a wide- open transition game. On their road to physical fitness, the thirteen team members endured harsh practices at 6:15 every morning. Their conditioning gave them the necessary stamina when the game was on the line.

Although the Andrean team finished the season at 12- 10, it played much better than the record indicated as the defeat of Crown Point proved. “We always knew we had the ability. Everything came together perfectly at exactly the right time,” said Most Valuable Player Nita Dziczkowski. “We dreamed of winning sectionals, but as we found ourselves in the final game, we realized the sectional crown could become a reality!” exclaimed Jenny Attar, Most Assists and Steals. Other season awards went to Acquanetta Washington, Most Points, and Aileen Blake and Mary Mihalik, Most Improved. UPPER LEFT: Aileen Blake fires over a Wallace defender.

That’s what killed us going into sectionals.” In sectionals, the Lady Niners played well against Calumet with good, solid defense and with fine hitting by Toni Rossi, Aileen Blake, and Pam Arvay. In their second game, though they held the Brickies to a mere two points, the Niners generated little offense and left many stranded on base. The final score was Hobart 2, Andrean 1.

In the final game of the season, Portage (6-0 in league play) defeated the Niners (4-2 in league play) to capture sole possession of the league title. Mike Sanchez and Mike Carlisle helped the team throughout the season with goals in nearly every game. Goalie Tim Sullivan, averaging about ten saves per game, also helped the cause. The greatest moral victory of the season was in the Culver game. Though it ended in a tie, the game proved a victory for the Niners, who had lost to tough Culver teams for five straight years.

German Holiday Members Hold Oktoberfest Organizations — 143 Once in our Lifetime Four years ago, high school stretched ahead of us, further into the future than we could see. Today, with the speed of a comet across the night sky, our four years have flashed past, and we are ready to leave Andrean and go forward. Saying goodbye is never easy. During our time here, we have been together, first as incoming freshmen, united by our mutual enthusiasms and expectations — and more than a few anxieties and fears. Events of the four years have brought us even closer together: a sock-hop to help a classmate, homecoming floats, blood drives, tree-trimming parties, retreats, hard- fought Armageddon battles, defeats, victories, tears, and cheers. Now we go our separate ways, but we will carry memories with us of these, the best of times — the once in a lifetime events. UPPER RIGHT: At a senior retreat, John Cidulka makes dish duty fun.

Mary Joy Hnat was crowned Hobart Junior Miss on November 17 at Hobart High School. Mary Joy earned her title by running against fifteen other competitors. She was judged on poise, appearance, a creative performance in which she tap- danced to “Puttin’ on the Ritz,’’ physical fitness, academic achievement, and an interview. By winning the title, Mary Joy earned a $500 scholarship and a necklace. “I’m thrilled!” commented Mary Joy. “I was so shocked when they announced that I’d won. It’s been fun — I’ve made so many new friends, and competing in Indianapolis for the Indiana Jr. Miss title was an experience that I’ll never forget!” Seniors 153 Laura Susoreny Cam Stram Jill Stern Thuptara Thupvong Sheryl Thomas Sandra Tchoukaleff David S.

Stories of hijackings, bombings, hostages, and American retaliations were so prevalent they became commonplace. FLIGHT 847 In the summer of 1985, terrorists captured TWA flight 847 in Athens and held 153 victims hostage. The last 39 Americans were finally released 17 days later, but during that time the hijackers had brutally beaten and killed Robert Stetham, an American. ACHILLE L AURO In October, four Palestinian terrorists intercepted the Italian cruise ship, the Achille Lauro, and held Amercian and European tourists hostage for 3 days. The terrorists murdered Leon Klinghoffer, a 69-year-old confined to a wheelchair. When the terrorists attempted to fly out of Egypt, four F-1 4 fighter planes intercepted the getaway plane over the Mediterranean and brought the four terrorists down into custody in Sicily. MALTA In November, Arab Hijackers took control of EgyptAir flight 648 and forced a landing on Malta. After terrorists killed five passengers, Egyptian commandos intervened with a gun-battle that claimed the lives of 57 more passengers. ABU NIDAL In January of 1986, Palestinian gunmen belonging to a terrorist groupled by Abu Nidal simultaneously attacked airports in Rome and Vienna. The attacks killed 14 people, including an 11 -year-old American girl. TRIPOLI Ronald Reagan, claiming to have irrefutable proof that Moummar Gaddafi was responsible for a Berlin discotheque bombing, ordered a sneak attack on Libya on April 21. US F-1 11 bombers took off from Great Britain headed for Tripoli, bypassing France and Spain when both countries denied access to their air-space. Reaching Libya around 2 A.M., the F-1 1 1 ’s bombed T ripoli for 1 1 minutes, hitting naval targets, an airfield, Gaddafi’s residence, and other targets. One F- 111 plane was reported lost. Tourism in Europe was at an all-time low. SPACE SHUTTLE On January 28 the United States and its space program were struck a devastating blow when the space shuttle Challenger exploded less than a minute after takeoff, killing the seven astronauts aboard, including civilian teacher Christa McAuliffe. TELEVISION NBC took its first number one rating in years with the hit program The Cosby Show. Other popular programs of the season were Moonlighting and The Wheel of Fortune. HANDS ACROSS AMERICA On May 25, 1986, millions of Americans joined together to make a chain across the country. Although there were gaps in the line, the effort succeeded in raising millions of dollars for charity. DICTATORS EXILED In the Philippines the government of Ferdinand Marcos was overthrown and replaced by the government of Mrs. Corazon Aquino. In Haiti revolutionaries toppled the dictatorial government of Baby Doc Duvalier. Both are searching for permanent residences; temporarily, however, Marcos is staying in Hawaii and Duvalier in France. NUCLEAR DISASTER In May the largest nuclear meltdown in history occurred when the Chernobyl Power Plant near Kiev in the Ukraine spewed radiation and dust particles over western Asia and eastern Europe, killing 19 people and destroying many dairy and grain products. LIVE-AID On July 13, 1985, the largest concert ever staged took place simultaneously on two continents. Live-Aid, a massive trans-Atlantic concert to combat hunger in Africa, entertained over a billion viewers throughout the world for over 16 hours. The concert, which raised more than 30 million dollars, highlighted Phil Collins, who performed both in Wembley Stadium in London and later in John F. Kennedy Stadium in Philadelphia. 170 — Year in Review IN REVIEW LOCAL NEWS DEATH SENTENCES Alton Coleman and Debra Brown were both given the death sentence in several states, including Indiana, for their 1984 killing spree. The sentence in Lake County, Indiana was the most important because Indiana is more likely to impose the death penalty than other Midwestern states. SUICIDE OR HOMICIDE? Police reopened the case of 52 year old Hobart man, James Cooley, who was found dead last year with 32 hammer blows to the head. Local police had termed it sui cide, but state police reopened the case and are now investigating the possiblility of homicide. SPORTS NEWS SUPERBOWL CHAMPS Chicago Bears dominated the 1985 National Football League season. After twelve straight wins, they lost to the Miami Dolphins, then won the rest of their games, including a Superbowl blowout over the New England Patriots, 40-10. The Bears achieved their 18-1 record with their “46 defense,” rated number one in the NFL, and with Hall-of-Fame-bound running back Walter Payton. The Bears also brought humor to football by introducing 305 lb. William “The Refrigerator” Perry as a running back. BROKEN RECORD Player-manager Pete Rose of the Cincinnati Reds broke Ty Cobb’s record for most hits when TOP MOVIES Out of Africa The Color Purple Kiss of the Spiderwoman Back to the Future Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure Rambo Murphy’s Romance Pretty in Pink he hit his 4,192nd hit near the end of last season. Rose, who has played major league baseball for more than twenty years, has no plans for retirement.

Mr. Listro earned recognition because of his obvious dedication to his work and his students. AUTO ACCIDENT On November 4, Miss Roseann Trapane and her mother were seriously injured in an automoble accident. Through the prayers, cards, and thoughts of the Andrean community, both regained their health. JETS On Tuesday, February 18, the Andrean JETS team captured the third place trophy at the annual competition at Purdue Calumet. Andrean participated with fifteen area high schools in the large high school division. The team followed in the tradition of the 1985 team, which also won the third place trophy. ACADEMIC DECATHLON The Academic Decathlon team came in second place at the regional competition at Merrillville High School, losing out to the host school. The team went on to state competition, where it placed third behind Merrillville and Indianapolis North Central. ANDREAN-AID In the spirit of Live-Aid and Farm-Aid, Andrean had its own benefit rock concert on March 1, 1986 Andrean-Aid was held in the boys’ gym from 2-10 p.m.; the $3 admission fee went to charity. Performing at Andrean-Aid were Currently Nameless, Deviance, Code Red, Custard Pie, and Unknown. UNIFORMS A senior faction of the Student Council led by Brian Van Buskirk and Danny Oates started a mid-winter controversy by proposing that the boys have a dress uniform starting in fall of 1986. The proposal was strongly supported by senior and junior boys, who would not be affected by the proposal because of senior privilege. The proposal, opposed by underclassmen boys and some sympathetic girls, passed by a hand count 55-54. A recount was refused by Bob Boby, Student Council President. Although many considered the proposal to be a big joke, it enlivened the council during the winter-time doldrums. Bill Koch — “The Hunter” ART AWARD Jill Lach won an $800 scholarship by placing first in an art competition sponsored by the Indiana Federation of Clubs held in Indianapolis on April 22. She also was awarded $50 for “most popular piece.” DAYTIME ROMANCE During Christmas break, Mr. Terry Slater asked Miss Donna Bombassaro to be his wife. They planned an August 2 wedding. Year in Review — 173 Mr. Barancyk “Graduates” Mr. William Barancyk, Andrean’s Dean of Students for eighteen years, retired at the end of the 1985-86 school year. Mr. Barancyk became interested in Andrean in 1 968 at the suggestion of a friend. At that time, he was Sergeant Barancyk and ready to retire from the Gary Police Department after 20 years of service. At the time of his retirement, Sergeant Barancyk was offered two jobs: he could remain on the police force but not in active duty or he could work as Andrean’s Dean of Students. The decision was not an easy one. The latter position called for a cut in salary, but it would also give him the chance to work on a one-to-one basis with high school students. Mr. Barancyk feels that he made the right decision and has no regrets. Mr. Barancyk has in his eighteen years maintained a high opinion of Andrean’s student body. He cites “Christian values” and an atmosphere that at its best “makes people feel a part of the whole” as reasons for his opinion. Fairness has always been Mr. Barancyk’s goal in dealing with Andrean students. The Dean feels that the most important element of his job has been to keep a view of the student as an individual. He worked hard not to stereotype students because of the actions of a few. He feels the need to understand why a student behaved as he did, not just focus attention on what he did. Mr. Mark Strimbu, one of several teachers at Andrean who knew Mr. Barancyk as a student and now knows him from the point of view of a teacher, attests to Mr. Barancyk’s fairness and humanity. Senior Rob Holcomb points out that the Dean is “always willing to listen.” Mr. Barancyk’s connection with Andrean is deepened by the connection of members of his family. His grandson Mike is currently a sophomore. His nephew Steven was the valedictorian in 1980, and his nephew Frank was Student Council president in 1981. After retirement, Mr. Barancyk plans to maintain his relationship with members of the Andrean community. While keeping busy with domestic duties and church-related activities, he feels he will have time to “maintain contact” with the many friends he has made over the years among students, faculty, and administration. Fr. Whitley’s comments on the Dean summarize the feelings of most members of the Andrean community who knew Mr. Barancyk: “Mr. Barancyk will be deeply missed. I have come to know him as a person of great humility, warm, tender, sincere, and of an understanding heart. His integrity and professional manner were much appreciated. As an understanding friend of youth and frequently as their sympathetic confidant, he has made a substantial contribution to life at Andrean. I wish him well in his retirement.” 0 7 I rzs 7 you t !
