We hope our choices will be the right ones now that we have been given the building blocks necessary for a solid foundation in our lives. During our younger years, we didn't realize that we would soon enter the structured environment of school. We would be educated inside and outside of the school on what is acceptable, what is expected of us and what opportunities are available to us. But now we are in a position to control our own lives. Now we must face forward and look ahead to the challenges, hardships, and pleasures that will now be placed before us. 5— ADMINISTRATION AND FACULTY The Arts High faculty, through diligent work, has perfected the ’’thorough and efficient" system of education. The administration and faculty have provided our students with guidance, counseling and knowledge. They have implanted in us all of the guidelines wc will need to become the leaders of tomorrow. The equipment and supplies used may not always be the best, but our school remains a smooth running and worthwhile place for us to grow and mature.MR.' HILTON OTERO PRINCIPAL Mr. Otero has always steadfastly maintained that we strive for excellence and success as we travel along the treadmill of life. The senior class would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Otero - a good man. MR. GEORGE STEISEL VICE-PRINCIPAL We thank Mr. Steisel for making us recognize that there will be authority and order in our lives. The discipline we receive now determines how we react to it later on. The Class of 1977 Is aware of his devotion to us and to our school. We thank him for that also. 8Mrs. Barren, Guidance Mr. Landers, Guidance Miss Cardella, Clothing Mr. Alamo, Guidance Mr. Carden, Art Mrs. Tso.

Security Guard uSENIOR CLASS ADVISOR Under the leadership of Mr. Larry Hazzard, the class of 1977 was able to truly enjoy its last year at Arts High. No words exist to adequately express the many thanks we owe him. As class advisor, he never let us settle for second best and took great interest in all our activities. We thank him and shall miss him. 15CLASS OF 1977 During our innocent years, our ideals had not been fully formed, nor did we know how structured the environment of school would be. We would be educated here and elsewhere as to what opportunities are available to us. School is a wave we are placed upon so that we can flow into the American stream of life. But this is OUR life and we must strive to make it better for ourselves and the generations to follow based on the accomplishments and failures of the past and on the efforts and capabilities we now possess. It is necessary to realize not merely where we stand, but in what direction we are going. 17Most Likely to Succeed 1. Martin Jenkins 4. Rosena Chisolm 7. Howard Simpson 2. Michael Wilson 5.

Everyone got up early that day and came to school armed with paper bags and great expectations. All were ready to go on the Junior Class Trip to Hershey Park.

The goals reached by one class will linger in the memory of the next to help them reach their own. We wish to inspire in them the desire to aim higher. Now that the time has come for us to leave, we must pass the torch on, as it has always been passed and will be passed. We hope that they will face up to what is to come and be able to go far beyond what is expected of them. 79CLASS OF Almeida, Sharon Alsion, Beverly Alston, Janine Anderson, Terry Andriacco, Anthony Anthony, Delores Archer, Audrey Armstrong, Roderick Ashe, Renee Ates, Daniel Baker, Patricia Barnes, Beverly Barnes, Douglas Baskcrvillc, Constance Bell, Kenneth Berry, Vivian Bey, Osborne Bland, Wanda Blocker, Rhea Booker, Delores Boughton, Donald Breeden, Theodore Brewer, Robert Brooks, Dianne Brooks, Sheila Brooks, Stephanie Brown, Janice Bryant, Michael Bynum, Towana Campbell, Eugene Campbell, Veronica Chisholm, Ellis Christmas, Darrell Collins, Tracey Conyers, Beverly Crawford, Howard Crenshaw, Charles Cruz, Penelope Daniels, Cynthia Dansby, Denise Days, Juliet Dennis.

SERVICE COMMITTEE Under the direction of Cynthia Wiggins and Selion Dove, the Gospel Chorus always succeeds in relating messages to its audiences through song. Smooth, melodic notes are played on the piano by Selton while the chorus displays its special talent. The performance on Alumni Day, December 23, 1976, showed profcssionalsim and power far beyond that expected of a high school group. GOSPEL CHORUS 106STAGE CREW Under the guidance of Mr. Marcus, the Stage Crew is responsible for all auditorium related activities. They provide the special technical expertise needed.

The squad, with Captain Alvina Conyers, managed to surmount the difficulties and put on a memorable exhibit of talent and ability at our annual Pep Rally. ART CLUB IM The Art Club, under the guidance of Mr. Carden, has been formed for two purposes. It is comprised of a group of students who spend their lunch times and some after school hours working on art projects they cannot accomplish during regular class time. Music students with art talent can use this time to receive casual art instruction. Its second purpose is to enable underclassmen to learn techniques necessary to produce a successful yearbook during their senior year.YEARBOOK STAFF Aided by Mr. Carden, the yearbook staff is responsible for construction of the yearbook. The staff writes and designs every page down to the last detail. With Howard Simpson as editor, and other student staffers too numerous to mention, the staff was able to complete the many hours of hard work with success. Mr. Carden proved to be a valuable asset to the staff. Without his years of experience from producing other yearbooks, this chronicle of our times would have been very difficult to produce. We, the Vignette Staff of 1977, appreciate his diligence and express our deepest gratitude.BAND Am High’s Band under the leadership of Mr. Israel, puts an extra air of excitement into the assembly programs. They also take an active part in activities such as the Winter Fair, Winter Concert, Spring Concert, Kiwanis Club luncheon and other events.

The Chorus performed excerpts from Handel's 'Messiah' and ''Domine Adjuvandume" this year as pan of its concen program. Its production of "The King and I" was the highlight of the year for them.
