A Renewed Faith in Hoban
There was a new sound at Hoban this
year. It pervaded the spirit as well as the
ears. This sound could be heard at most
sports events, even in student sections
at away games. This sound was
Hoban's new alma mater.
Hoban's original alma mater, once
sung frequently by the all male student
body, had fallen victim to disinterest
and disuse. Few students knew the
words or music. During the 1975-76
school year however, interest was
rekindled in having a school alma
mater. It was decided though, that there
should be a new alma mater, one that
could be more easily sung by the
students. The Visor then sponsored a
contest to see who could write the best
lyrics for a new alma mater. Mark
Schweitzer, from the class of 76,
submitted the best version. Brother
Eugene Weisenberger composed the
spirited music to suit the words.
Since then the alma mater has been
incorporated into many school activi-
ties. lt is heard almost as often as the
fight song. And although the lyrics are
displayed prominently in the gym, most
students already know the words by
Developing an Ideal
The words of the alma mater are signifi-
cant. They express the true meaning and
spirit of the Hoban community.
"Hoban High, your students proud
sing and loudly praise"
These words give testimony to the pride
that students, faculty, and alumni feel
towards this school. Pride is seen in the
large numbers of students involved in Hoban
activities. lt is seen at poster parties, club
meetings, or sports events. This pride erupts
into a deafening cheer on the first "H" at the
St. V assembly. The walls of Hoban alone
cannot contain this pride. It spills out into
the community through such projects as the
concert for the Hattie Larlham Foundation,
the Children's Home Christmas project, and
the canned food drive. Each student also
expresses his pride in Hoban when he sets
goals for himself, academic or otherwise.
The word "sing" in the second line connotes
another important aspect of Hoban, fun. lt is
our friends and the times we share with
them, going to games or parties, enjoying
different pastimes, that often remain the
most memorable part of our years at Hoban.
"Loyal, true, amid the crowd
our voices loudly raise,"
The real test of our loyalty to Hoban came
this past year with the announcement that
our school would close. We could have
quietly resigned ourselves to that fact, but
we did not. With our voices loudly raised to
the chant, "We won't close," the Save Hoban
Committee, aided by parents, students,
faculty and alumni, raised enough money to
promise the continuation of Hoban for at
least another five years, and, hopefully,
Q ,,, ..,, in
,A 1 , .
"Building upon our history
Which never is complete?
Our history has left us its traditions and its
standard of academic exceIlence.Those who
have graudated before us have also handed
down to us their spirit, the spirit which is
heard in the singing of the alma mater today
Just as this past is effecting us in the
present, what we are doing now is building
upon our history, which will influence the
future of our school.We can also say now,
with belief, that our history never is complete
lt shall continue while the doors of Hoban
stay open to serve the community, and
forever in our memories.
"Our depth of pride no mystery
Each challenge we will meet."
One of the greatest challenges we have
ever had to meet occured this year, the
continuation of Hoban High School was in
jeopardy.lt required much effort to resolve
this situation and yet this was not the only
challenge that occupied our attention.There
were many times when each of us came upon
some sort of obstacle, whether it be a
difficult test or tough competition in that
day's athletic event. But whatever the
challenge, no doubt we met it admirably.The
percentage of students on the honor roll, the
number of those involved in extracurriculars,
and our records and efforts in sports attests
"Upon these rocks we stand as one
All Christians strong and true"
We at Hoban are a "Community of learners
joined in the development of Christian faith
and service." The important word is Christian
lt is this word that sets Hoban apart and
above from many of the other schools in the
area. Religious instruction is a unique and
important part of the curriculum. Our
education is furthered beyond strict academ-
ics to include concepts that will continue to
be utilized throughout life.
A Tradition With New Meaning
l Q1 H
it ki 'i-- v
l.l,,.llt. ,,,. 1 ,, .Jw ,... X . ,,
"Till our time on earth is done
We shall be true to you."
These last lines are perhaps the most
meaningful for those of us who are seniors.
They seem to suggest carrying the memory
of Hoban in one's mind and heart long after
having graduated. That day of pomp and
circumstance seemed so distant to us as
freshmen, and even as juniors we may have
found it difficult to realize. Yet the time has
arrived with an amazing alacrity. We now find
ourselves embarking upon a whole new
phase of our lives, and wherever our
pathways lead us, the impression left upon
us by our four years at Hoban will remain
indisguisable. We will carry with us a certain
spirit, a spirit that may prompt us to say, till
our time on earth is done, we shall be true to
The theme of the 1976-77 yearbook is the
alma mater. lt is an appropriate theme for a
yearbook because it sums up in a few proud,
assertive phrases, all the characteristics that
make up the quality and spirit of Hoban High
School. lt is a spirit that takes in its hands
the tradition of the past and the reality of the
present, and forms them into a promise for

Building Upon Our History
Building upon our history,
many extracurricular pro-
grams have been discarded
and added over the years. But
as always, Hoban's many
activities continue to be im-
portant factors in student
involvement and interest as
well as providing opportuni-
ties for social contact and
development. Many activities
are available, from those that
might provide career interest
such as student government,
publications or the photo
club, to enjoyable activities
such as Musicale, the ski
club, or cheerleading. What-
ever the preference, students
can help build upon Hoban's
history by their participation
in its activities.
Student Council: Pride in Doing
Hoban's Student Council helped
organize many different activities
which involved the students here at
Hoban and the people in the com-
munity. The Student Council helped
organize a Halloween dance, the
Homecoming dance, and the Sweet-
heart dance. They sponsored the
annual Canned Food Drive which
collected over 6,000 cans distributed
through the Akron area. A
The Community Actions committee
held a Bike-a-thon in early fall. The
money raised at this outing was given
to the Hattie Larlham Foundation.
The committee also sponsored a
benefit concert starring John Bas-
sette, Jocelyn Chang, and Jim Bal-
The Student Life Committee spon-
sored the student exchange, film
night in the spring, and a monthly
Student Council also took an active
role in the Save Hoban drive. ln
January A8tW Root Beer financed a
Root-Beer-a-thon for the benefit of
the school. A year-round penny drive
was another activity sponsored by
Student Council for the school.

Fine Arts Club Brings New Ideas
The newly organized Fine Arts Club was an
addition to Hoban this year. The club attended
several cultural events at E.J. Thomas Performing
Arts Hall. The special events attended were, the
Pennsylvania Ballet and the Ohio Chamber Ballet.
Other activities included movies, ballets, and plays.
The club members also visited the Cleveland
Museum of Art in April.
The major projects of the club were the Christmas
bazaar and the visit by the Ohio Chamber Ballet. The
Christmas bazaar in December was a fund raising
effort for starting the club treasury. The ballet was a
cultural event for the enjoyment of all who saw it.
The goal of the Fine Arts Club was to get the
L students and faculty involved with the Arts. The
l weekly meetings concentrated on certain artists and
T focused on unfamiliar arts. The club was moderated
by Mrs. Douglass Terrass and Pete Petrilooh.
A highlight of the year was the presentation by the Ohio Chamber
Ballet - a joint project with the Student Council.
Imagination Key in Set Construction
The stage crew set up the props
and sets for the play and Musicale
last year. Students spent several
weekends designing, planning,
and constructing each set so that it
would be ready for the production.
Using their imagination, with help
from several art magazines, the
stage crew came up with some very
impressive sets. During the perfor-
mances the crew would move the
sets and put them into place. The
stage crew was supervised by Br.
The sound and light crews did
their part in the performances.
They made sure the lighting and
sound systems were perfect for all
the performers. Their long hours of
work contributed to the success of
the play and Musicale.

Photo Club: Images
The Hoban Photography Club, under the
guidance of Br. Donard Steffes, learned
different styles and techniques of modern
photography. The photo enthusiasts were
taught how to process film and print
pictures in both black and white and color.
They learned that various kinds of lighting
affect the pictures. Preparing pictures for
contests took up much of their time,
culminating in the National Scholastic
Photography contest, sponsored by the
Eastman Kodak Company.

showed their skills in marching and in
playing. The band played at the assem-
blies and at all but three of the football
games. They attended two important
events: the Akron U. Band Day, held at
the Rubber Bowl, and a parade, the first
parade in which the band has partici-
pated in in thirteen years.
The drill team danced to many
variations of music this past year. As
the moods of the music changed, the
manner of the dance changed with it.
Many modifications of pom-pom rou-
tines were used throughout the season
ending in the traditional kickline at the
St. Vincent-St. Mary game. Instructor
for the Starlettes was Mrs. Hamby.

Each Challenge We Will Meet
The Athletic program at
Hoban has continued to offer
to girls as well as boys, many
avenues for the outlet of each
person's particular talent or
energy. Whether or not we
have actually won every event,
from football to gymnastics,
we have met each challenge in
a true competitive spirit, al-
ways victorious in the fact
that we have given one-
hundred percent. The dedica-
tion shown by each student in
a sport, whether it be fresh-
men, J.V., varsity or even
intramural, gives us the right
to assert that now, and in the
future, each challenge we will

Cross Country Team: Second In State
Hoban's Cross Country team was the best in the school's
history. This came as a surprise to many people, for many
believed that the team wouldn't do so well since several of the
top seven runners had graduated last year. But the coach, Dick
Malloy, and the rest of the team were out to prove the people
wrong. Practice started in early June, and the team continued
to work hard throughout the summer with several members
running over 500 miles during the three month season.
The team had an 8-1 dual meet record and finished at or near
the top in several invitationals. The Knights also retired the
parochial championship trophy by defeating Walsh for the
third consecutive year.
This was probably the team's last year in the Northeast Ohio
Conference, but the Knights left on a winning note. For the
third year in a row the Varsity took first place, making this the
fifth first place conference finish in seven years that Hoban
has participated in the meet. The Junior Varsity added icing to
the cake by finishing first in their race for the second
The Knights took first place in the sectional meet which
advanced them to the districts. ln the district meet, the team
again finished behind St. Thomas capturing the number two
position in the state.

This year's girls varsity basketball team was
quite successful, although ending with a 6-10
season record. The year began slowly, but
gained speed as time progressed. A new coach,
Miss Mary Howard, and many new players
brought fresh ideas to the team, consisting
mostly of sophomores. Much of the season
was spent gaining experience and working on
techniques. To prove just how far they did
advance, they competed in the district game,
where they defeated Aurora by a score of 59-36.

When the announcement came out that Hoban
wouldn't sponsor a golf team, the team members of
previous years didn't sit idly by. They organized their
own team. They collected dues to cover green fees and
persuaded Henry Jacobs, a former pro at Turkeyfoot
and Highland ll, to be their coach.
The golf season ended with a 2-7 record. The team
placed 4th in the NEOC tournament which Hoban

Wrestlers Grapple Their Way
To a Victorious Season
The fans were optimistic going into this year's
wrestling season, and as the season progressed, they
were not disappointed. Many talked of an undefeated
season. Coach Ralph Paonessa, however, realized early
that the team didn't have a lot of depth. There weren't
many weight classes with an experienced wrestler the top
man, and as the season went on, this is what hurt the
team. The team was very dedicated. Several wrestlers
began lifting weights at the beginning of the school year.
Their dedication is what took the team so far.
ln their first match, Hoban's wrestlers put on a
sensational show of strength. Four of the Knights in the
middle weight classes scored back-to-back pins to help
smash Canton Central Catholic. In their second match,
the grapplers were in trouble late in the match. The score
was 18-27 in favor of Buchtel going into the final two
matches. Jack Kelley outclassed his opponent by 12
points, giving the Knights a needed 5 points, but going
into the final match, everyone knew what had to be done,
and Pat Kennedy did it. He got the pin, and the Knights
pulled a victory from the hands of the Griffins.
Good times were ahead for the grapplers. They scored
devastating victories over Ellet and Central Hower, and
then went against top-ranked Beaver Local. Great
performances by all of Hoban's wrestlers were confident
coming out of this big win and it showed in the matches
that followed. They defeated a strong Kent Roosevelt
team, and then went on to get revenge for a loss at North
in their previous season.

The North match got off to a good start when Robert
McGough, who went on to be undefeated in dual meets, pinned
his opponent. The grapplers went on to an overwhelming victory
over the Vikings.
The wrestlers ran into bad luck when they needed it the least.
Sickness and injury hit in the lower weight classes as the match
with a strong Cuyahoga Falls team approached. The team put on
a great battle, but with the end of the Falls match, came the end
of the team's dream for an undefeated season.
The Knights smashed the young Walsh team in their next
match with the St. V-M match coming up. The team was still
plagued with injuries going into the match with the irish, and
despite the cheers from the large number of fans, the Knights
were edged out in a close, competitive game.
Coming out of this defeat, the grapplers placed third in the
NEOC tournament. Seniors Randy McCree and Pat Kennedy did
exceptionally well becoming NEOC champs in their weight
classes. The Knights performed extremely well in post-season
competition as well. ln the sectionals, sophomore Bob McGough
tsectional champl, Seniors Randy McCree, John Coatter, Jack
Kelley, and Pat Kennedy tsectional champl qualified for the
districts. John Coatter and Jack Kelley made it through the
districts, and went on to state competition. ln Columbus, both

second match. John went on in the consolation rounds to take
fourth place in the state.

Baseball: Best Season in Years
Coach Ray Sharnsky led the baseball team to a 9-14 season
which was the best Hoban has had in several years. The Knights
suffered many close losses, but as the season progressed, the
team gained strength and was able to win several games.
Although the team lost the season opener, the Knights came
back with a terrific show of force defeating Rootstown by a score of
17-2 in the next game. Other big victories came when Hoban
defeated Revere 4-0 in a game which saw Tom Paris pitch a
one-hitter, and in a 5-0 shutout of a strong Ellet team. In the final
game, the Knights came from behind in the final innings to defeat
The J-V team, also coached by Mr. Sharnsky, ended its season

Bowlers Maintain Status
Although not a varsity sport, the Hoban bowling team has
actively participated on an interesting level over the past years.
Each fall, two - four man teams from each highschool are
allowed to bowl at Garden Lanes once a week in two split
The number one team consisted of a junior, Bob Plesz, and
sophomores John Hutchison, Jim Eckman and Chris Fabbro.
The team finished in fifth place for the year.
The number two team, however, earned the respect of all
other teams as they consistently maintained a first place lead
all through the season. Senior Jim McCool had a high average
of 172 and a high game of 243 for the team. Senior Eric
Hengstenberger's 165 average practically guaranteed a win for
the team, and seniors John Bertsch and Ed Sliman were clutch
bowlers and always turned in fine games.
The bowling team shows a variety of form.

The distance runners, coached by Mr. Dick Malloy,
were strong. They rarely gave up more than a few

Loyal True Amid the Crowd . .
As a school on one of the
highest points in Akron, and
frequently in the community's
eyes, Hoban has continued to
be an example of what a
quality education should be.
One of the principal factors
making up this quality educa-
tion is Hoban's excellent aca-
demic program. The people
responsible for the maintain-
ing and improving of the
program are the faculty. The
staff also aids in the educa-
tional process by further pro-
viding for the various stu-
dents' needs. "Loyal true
amid the crowd. . these
people are a vital part of the
Throughout the year the concept of quality education was stressed by
the administration. Principal, Bro. William Verstraete, dealt with the
problems concerning the operation and development of a quality school.
Assistant Principal, Bro. John May, maintained the responsibilities of
scheduling all students, so that each had an opportunity to receive the
most rounded education possible. Mr. Robert Bloniarz, Dean of
Students, oversaw student related problems and sought ways to break
down these minor barriers. Handling the finances of the school was Bro.
Robert Woodward who worked as head treasurer in the central office.
Father Joseph Barry, present as a moral leader, officlated at chapel
masses and student liturgies.

carrying out many of the duties necessary for the smooth operation of a
school this size. Mrs. Rita Sitko, new to the school this year, took
charge not only of the typewriters and telephones of the central office
but also the distribution of a daily absence list. As the Bookkeeper, Bro.
Joseph Fox, administered everything from giving change to tuition
receipts. The running of a quality library remained the job of Sister

place of silence in which to study and a fine research center for
assignments of any type. Bro. Richard Foley continued to take charge of
all audio visual machines, printing, and Red Cross instruction.
Preparation of school meals was the job of many people. Mrs. Esther
Giaccomo, Mrs. Katherine Justice, Mrs. Mary Palovich, Mrs. Helen
Sesock, Mrs. Betty Wilson, and Mrs. Agnes Yavarsky. These ladies
worked to insure the cleanliness of the cafeteria and the preparation of
nourishing meals. ln charge of maintaining a clean school was Mr.
Michael Szalay. Clerk for State Aid materials, Miss Debbie Holland,
assisted in obtaining many of the items used throughout the year.

"Hoban High Your Students Proud . .
What is the purpose of
Hoban? What does it exist
for? A short walk through its
halls provides an answer. lt
exists for the students. "Hob-
an High your students proud
..."makes it something
more than a building, more,
than just another school. This
pride is reflected in the volun-
tary participation of students
in activities from student
government, to the Save Hob-
an drive, to attending sports
events. Everyone seems to do
his or her part to maintain the
pride in Hoban's name, even if
it is just working to get good
grades. As long as this pride
exists, Hoban will continue to
grow athletically, academical-
ly, and spiritually.

Setting Goals for Ourselves
Early in the year we began to realize a
very important feature of Hoban and its

people: friendliness. Someone is always
around to help with a problem or a
question, or to help elevate the spirits
with a simple "hello". Perhaps this
stems from the pride everyone has in
the school. This feeling is very con-
tagious and we felt this attitude
developing throughout the year.
The election of our class officers in
the fall was an important step for us.
We were to choose the people who were
to represent us in the school and to lead
us in achieving our goals this year. Our
officers received advice and guidance
from our class moderators, Sister Claire
and Mr. Dan Weiss.
Freshman Dan Anthony is proud to be in uniform.

Enjoying Our First Year
To bring us all together, a fall picnic was held at Virginia Kendall Park for all
freshmen and their families. It was very successful because everyone made a
few new friends and all had a good time.
Things began happening quickly as the officers and members of the class
became more acquainted with each other and started to organize more events.
Two bake sales were held during the fall to contribute to our class fund. Both
were highly successful, and both gave us a good start for the year.
The Freshman Outdoor Day was held in October. Besides the fact that we
had a lot of fun, we also found out that not all learning takes place in a
classroom. Groups of students put on impromptu plays concerning funny
situations in Hoban classrooms. There were also sneak previews of the sports
teams along with a "treasure hunt". Pizza and pop were served for lunch
during which we talked about things to come.

ln preparing for the Christmas seas-
on, we planned an Advent Mass for all
freshmen and their families. It was a
time of reflection on the past and hope
for the future. Many people attended
and helped make this one of the most
successful events of the year. After the
mass, there was entertainment with a
puppet show and an appearance by
none other than Santa Claus for the
kids, and refreshments of coffee and
donuts for all. Such a joyful event gave
everyone a new insight into themselves.

The first activity of the new year brought profit to our class
fund. A giant raffle was held at the end of January for the entire
school. The tickets sold in record time with a first prize of
S50.00. Our entire class was swept up in the excitement and
everyone became self-made salespeople. After the winner was
announced, we realized that it had brought us a new sense of
togetherness we had not felt before but we hoped to keep it
and let it deepen.
Acting upon this sense of togetherness prompted us to
participate in several winter activities. With free facilities for
these winter sports at Virginia Kendall Park, we decided to
take advantage of them. Dates were set for tobaggoning, sled
riding, and ice skating. Since each activity was held at
different times we had a chance to recuperate in between each

Finding Ourselves in Others
As the weather became increasingly warmer, our interests
turned to outdoor activity. One idea was to have another
picnic. A cookout picnic was planned for all freshmen and
their families. Many people came, and many new friendships
grew among families. lt was an event to be remembered.
Since we had so much success with our earlier raffle, we
decided to have another. As expected, we were highly
successful with this one and we had a lot of fun in the process.

During our freshman year, we
achieved an understanding of Hoban
and through this understanding we
developed a deep feeling of pride,
knowing we were a part of the school.
As the year drew to a close, we
recognized this feeling for what it is:
the Hoban Pride.
At the end of our freshman year, we
elected class officers for the 76-77
year. All our officers did a fine job
getting ideas from the students and
planning events around them. They
received a large amount of help from
homeroom contact people who got
many of the ideas from the students
in the sophomore class.

Increasing Our Academic Knowledge
The beginning of our sophomore year
brought about a new depth to this pride
and spirit. lt also brought about our
meeting new teachers and enabling
them to get to know us. We knew that
this pride and spirit would grow and
become deeper in our thoughts through
the next three years.
This year was spent doing things to
show others the pride and spirit we have
for Hoban while still enjoying ourselves
and helping others. We definitely
fulfilled our second goal at our first
event of the year in September. A picnic
was held for all sophomores at Sand
Run Park. The turnout was substantial,
and enough chicken was on hand for
everyone who came. After lunch every-
body participated in sports or went for a
hike. Sophomores who attended agreed
that our first class activity was a
success and many who didn't come
wish they had. As a beginning of the
year event it helped to renew old
friendships, make new ones, and
strengthen our school spirit where it
had waned over the summer.

As school began becoming routine, we
decided to break the monotony. Our Hoban
spirit showed through in another activity: roller
skating! We rented Springfield Roller Rink and
held a party for all Hobanites. The success of
this event can be judged by the popular opinion
of the students who talked of nothing else for
We also contributed to the pride and spirit of
our football team by sponsoring a poster party
to keep the spirit of the entire school at a peak.
Another poster party, co-sponsored with the
freshmen, was held during Hoban week in
preparation for the St. V-M game.

We decided to have a special
celebration as a class during the
Thanksgiving season to reflect on all
we have and give thanks. Parents and
students were invited to a special
Mass held in the cafeteria. All who
attended experienced a new meaning
of the Thanksgiving season.
As Christmas approached we be-
came aware of the importance of the
children at the Hattie Larlham Foun-
dation. Working with the juniors, an
evening was spent making texture
boards to teach the children different
feelings and develop their sense of
touch. Students realized that al-
though Hoban pride and spirit is very
important to us, helping others is
more important. Through our work we
hoped to deepen the pride in these

Also in December we spon-

ball game. Spirits were at a
high level with the music to
cap off an exciting evening.
Perhaps the highlight of the
basketball season was a trip
to a Cavaliers basketball
game. Unexpectedly, the
group was not exclusively
male, which proved that Hob-
an students have varied inter-
ests and are getting a rounded
education. Hoban spirit trav-
eled along with the group as
they enthusiastically cheered

through the very low tempera-

the fun we were having. By the

When the announcement
came that Hoban might close,
student pride and spirit went to
levels never before reached.
Sophomores individually helped
support the school by contribut-
ing greatly in the Ftoot-Beer-a-
thon. Many class members tried
to challenge the record, al-
though no sophomores actually
broke it. Much money was
collected through sponsors and
donated to the Hoban Trust
Fund. Sophomore spirit shines
through again. 117
Becoming a Cohesive Unit
The coming of spring brought plans for the
sophomore class trip. The class as a whole
decided to go to Cedar Point for a day. Friends
went off to enjoy the park in individual groups
and an enjoyable day was definitely had by all.
The end of the year brought both sadness
and joy. Many of us were sorry to leave our
friends for the summer. We were happy,
however, because we had successfully finished
another year and were looking forward to an
enjoyable and relaxing summer. Everyone
promised to keep in touch and to keep up the
Hoban pride and spirit.

Juniors: Achieving Our Goals
.Lf Qjggi a i'ii
As we approach our senior year we
begin to prepare ourselves for the
remote future. To find our goals and
to continue to achieve them was a
major project. Under the guidance of
our class officers, homeroom contact
persons, and our moderators Br.
Edward Libbers and Mr. Haffner,
many things were accomplished and
the dream of a successful year be-
came a reality.
The first activity we sponsored that
took place this year was a poster
party in mid-September. Many stu-
dents participated to make it a big
success. One of the biggest events in
October was our class ring cere-
mony. The ceremony took place in
the gym with a blessing from Fr.
Barry and the distribution of the rings
by Br. William. A small reception
with cake and punch was held
aftenlvards. Everyone was proud of
his ring which symbolized a step into

Junior Spirits Help Keep Hoban 0pen
ln October we sponsored a fall dance
featuring Mesh. This was a special
dance because it included a dance
contest. Of the 150 people who attended
the dance, about 20 participated in the
contest. After a few minutes of dancing,
two students took first place. Both
received prizes for their special talents
and we made a healthy profit.
In late October, it was announced
that the school would be closing at the
end of the school year. This was a
tremendous surprise to everybody. We,
the class of 1978 were strongly upset
since we would be seniors soon. lt
would be difficult to have to transfer to
different schools. This would mean new
friends, teachers and a completely
different atmosphere, the things every-
one is fondest of here at Hoban.

would stay open! This means that all of us would
be able to graduate from the school that we've
attended for three years and that we've come to greatly
During Hoban week in November, we sponsored our
second poster party. With the artistic talents of many
juniors along with freshmen, sophomores and seniors,
over 100 posters were made. Each poster with its own
unique design was put up in the gym for the big St.

For our Christmas project, we joined forces
with the sophomores to collect toys for the Hattie
Lariham Foundation. Many toys were collected,
repaired, and sent to the children at Hattie
Lariham. It wasa good feeling for all of us to help
someone during the Christmas season.
During the first two weeks of February, we sold
Knight-o-grams in the lunch mods. Every student
had the chance to send his or her sweetheart a
very special Valentine. On Feb. 14, Valentine's
Day, the Knight-o-grams were delivered. The
success of the project was encouraged by all
students and greatly appreciated. In February, our
third poster party was held. Quite a few students
participated. Many posters were painted and it
was a job well done.

Looking Forward to Our Senior Year
During the month of March, we held a
rollerskating party at Akron Rollercade.
Many students attended the event. This gave
all the students an opportunity to show their
skills on wheels.
Late in March we had the opportunity to
attend a play at E.J. Thomas Performing Arts
Hall. The play was very interesting and
enjoyable for those who attended. lt also was
an excellent opportunity for all of us to
receive a glance at the world of theatrical
Our final event for March was an open
gym. Students had a chance to play
basketball or volleyball, wrestle or try their
hand at gymnastics. Several students at-
tended and thoroughly enjoyed the relaxa-
tion and exercise.
ln early April, we went canoeing and had a
picnic at Canal Fulton. Although some of us
took a plunge into the brisk waters, everyone
was revived at the picnic. There was plenty of
food and games, all of which made the day
an enjoyable success.

Throughout our four years
we backed our school in
sports, social activities and
academics, and although we
are no longer Hoban students
we will continue to support
our alma mater in spirit.
We are thankful for what

of us, and for the lessons that

A Chance to Remember Yesterday
When it comes time to leave a place
which we have been a part of for four
years, it is extremely difficult to discard
the memories that have grown with us
throughout these years. These memor-
ies are not of tests we'd thought we'd
never pass and homework we'd never
finish, but the friendships we've made
and the good times we've had.
The senior year was productive for us
all with our many activities. Even
though extracurriculars are not the main
reason for attending school, they make
for pleasant memories. Through these
extras we were able to show the
community just how much we cared.
When it came time to help bail the
school out of a terrible financial slump
we were there with others to offer both
moral and finanacial assistance. And
when it came time to help the needy
with canned foods we made our
impression there too. Filling out the
year with spaghetti dinners, road rallies,
and dances seemed to make a meaning-
ful and complete social year.
Although the social areas of the
school provided good times, there was
also the realization that our future lay
before us. It was a time to plan our next
big move in life. For some, minds had
been made up, yet, for others the
decision was a hard one.
We had seen many go into the
community and use the knowledge they
had gained at Hoban Now it was our
turn, and the decision of what we did
with what we learned was ours to make.

Looking into the Future,
Decisions somehow brought us closer
to others faced with the same dilemma. lt
was through the sharing of our problems
that new friendships were made and old
friendships were strengthened.
lt is some of our friendships and
experiences that are preserved in these
pages, to spark memories each time we
glance through this book.
There isn't enough room in this whole
book to list each event that has occured.
Each year has had its ups and downs, but
it is the senior year which will bring back
the most memories.
There'll be no more St. V. rallies,
chocolate drives, homerooms, or high
school dances for us. Perhaps we've just
reached that point where these must
become a part of our past, but let us hope
that the memories of all are pleasant.

We've grown together as a class and
we've made many friends both in and
around Hoban. But as the school year
ends these friendships become deeper and
we find ourselves depending more and
more on those around us.
Sponsoring events helped pull our class
together even more. Our annual Spaghetti
Dinner not only made an increase in our
class fund but an increase in good times
as well. The picnic held in the fall created
a chance for our class to get together and
enjoy not only our friends, but the
outdoors as well. lt felt good to be able to
see all of our friends in an "out of school"

As the talk of New Orleans faded and

we were again back in the everyday pattern

of school. That day in May was eyed with
mixed feelings but it still meant one thing
- our days at Hoban High School were
soon to be over. To make the leaving a
little easier, the junior class planned a
breakfast feast for us which was their way
of saying "Good luck". Although May was
crowded with events, there were still two
other important days. They were the

from our lockers and entered the world as

for the beautiful Tangier Restaur-
ant for a night of frivolity. The
setting was lovely, the music was
good, and the good times were
plentiful. All these factors com-
bined to make a perfect end to the
senior social life at Hoban.

The day arrived: Graduation. The goal of four
years of work. Studying and tests somehow
seemed worth it as seniors became alumni of
the school on the hill. The opportunities have
been given to us and many accepted the
knowledge offered them. It is now up to each
individual to use this knowledge. Whatever
each student decides to do with their career
may they do it well and with God and love at

The Way, 1977
The Way, volume XXIV was printed by Yearbook House of
Coshocton, Ohio in black ink on 80 lb. coral shell paper. The
book's cover is silk screened from a photograph in blue ink
on a stock gold cover.
Volume XXIV was edited by Kristen Lanshe, layout, and
Anne Giffels, copy. Helen Johnson was business manager.
Mike LiCause edited the sports section, Paul Hirschfelt did
the senior and faculty sections, Jim Kraus was in charge of
activities while Mary Kay Dietrich and Diane Berneath put
together the underclass section. Advisor was Brother
On the staff at various times during the year or helping
out in different ways were: Ann Thornburg, Laureen Lanshe,
Tom Orihel, Joe Flittman, Jim Lionetti, Dan DiPasquaIe, Jim
McCool and Br. Donard.
The staff worked on the book every day during the school
year, and several weekend and evening sessions were held
in order to meet deadlines. We hope that our work this year
truly represents the efforts of the members of the Hoban
Community. The theme centered around the new alma mater
and we hope that our effort as another part of the
community "loyal, true amid the crowd" has aided in the
"building upon our history."
The 1976-1977 school year is now our history. We hope
that it has enriched all who have been a part of it.
