Gastonia High School, now Central Elementary, BY Combining A5hl9Y and Holbrook into ASW
gfaduated many of Gastoniag most prominent brook, the School Board Cfeated 3 COTTI'
Citizens' promise name for the newly-built school.
Sunday, March 15, 1970 was a day of bitter
ebate and controversy. A crowd estimated at
ver 600, mostly Ashley High students and a few
dults, demonstrated their desire to retain the
ame Ashley High for the new area high school
wder construction on New Hope Road. The
ew school would consolidate Ashley and Hol-
rook Highs into a new large high school, while
shley and Holbrook would become junior high
ihools. The previous year the new school was
fficially named Ashley, but the school board, in
ie wake of protests and petitions, decided to
rconsider the name.
ln an effort to influence the board's decision,
shley students staged a motorcade from Ash-
y High to the construction site and followed it
'ith a short rally. Several student leaders spoke
'iefly, including Robert Starnes, president of
ie junior class. Starnes said that the purpose of
ie procession and rally was 'lto show the com-
unity and the school board that we care, and
specially that we want the name Ashley re-
ined for the new school."
l'The ratio of current Ashley students in the
ew school to Holbrook students will be six-to-
we, and the majority should rule." He added,
Ne should not let Mr. Ashley down," referring
i the late Frank L. Ashley, a Gastonia educator
ir whom the school was named.
'lf the name Ashley is retained, then it will
:tually be the first school that Ashley students
in completely call their own, because the cur-
'nt Ashley High really has lGastonia High
ihool' over the door." fThe school was known
Gastonia High School before it was dedicated
i Frank L. Ashley.j
Sophomore Class President, Dan Page, urged
Ashley students to llwork" together to keep
e name. He expressed concern over the Ash-
y athletic, band, and cheerleader uniforms as
ell as class rings 'lgoing down the drain" if the
tme were changed.
Senior Class President Bobby Kiser said he
was confident that the rally would help gain sup-
port for retaining the name.
The students placed a banner along the front
of the construction site which read, 'lFuture
Home of Frank L. Ashley High School." They also
carried posters with such slogans as 'Ashley For-
ever", 'l'm Going to Ashley High Next Year",
and 'Green Power." Green was one of Ashley's
school colors. At one point during the s eeches,
the crowd began chanting 'Holbrook Never,
Monday night, however, amid threats and
tears, the school board voted 5 to 2 to name the
senior high on New Hope Road "Ashbrook"
This was their compromise to the sometimes
intense debate between Holbrook High and
Ashley High students and parents.
Board member Dr. Lowell lennings said:
'lWe're forgetting one thing, though. lt's not stu-
dents we're bringing together in one school,
we're uniting two schools."
lt was vice-chairman Larry Petty of Gastonia
who suggested 'Ashbrookn as a compromise
But the decision did not satisfy some angry
students. ln protest, some 400 to 450 students
from Ashley High left their classes for one hour,
Ashley students carried placards with the same
messages seen during Sunday's motorcade.
Nevertheless, over the years students grew to
accept the new name 'Ashbrookf' Now, 13
years later, all controversy is virtually forgotten.
fStudents and parents have learned to llroll with
Ashbrook is a name students now take pride
in. But the name llAshbrook" is only a symbol for
this institution of learning. Therefore, it is not just
the name we are proud of, but the friends,
teachers, accomplishments, experiences, and
memories connected with it.
lt's not the name that counts, but the name
the school makes for itself.
ln only 13 years Ashbrook has achieved recogni-
tion for high standards in academics and sports.

TURN AND FACE THE CHA CES
One ofthe most painful, but unavoidable
aspects of life is change. Changes are con-
stantly occuring within and about us, some
minor, some major. Our physical appear-
ances change. We discover new values and
face new opportunities. Interests change
during the process of becoming an adult.
But man is a versatile creature, always learn-
ing, adapting, and growing so he may llroll"
with these changes.
High school is the time to become an
adult. As students at Ashbrook, we learn for
the future, we learn so we may be pre-
pared for life and its challenges. Many stu-
dents find it hard to change, others wish for
some type of change all the time. Only one
thing is sure: the world is changing quickly
everyday. Our generation will have to be
flexible enough to llRoll With the Changes,"
and yet strong enough to hold onto our
purpose. It's our time to UTurn and Face the
Changes!! Will we be able to roll with

' Q- ,.
I THREE YEARS - ADULTS!
IIVVhiIe I slowly scanned the prison-like
walls of my new home for three years, I
began to feel the excitement of high school
life. Everyone had gotten taller and I felt lost
within the crowd. This was a big change
from junior high where a person was able
to walk through the halls without being
trampled to death."
'II thought I would never make it, but
here I am - a junior. Sure, I know where all
my new classes are because I've been here
before, but hey, I'm big now because I can
drive to school every day, and I've got this
ring on my fingerf'
IlWeIl, here I am a senior, but it only
seems like yesterday that I walked through
those big green doors for the first time. It's
fun to be the oldest though. I've already
sold six elevator passes to those tiny, little
sophomores and led them to plenty of
classes in the cellar."
lIIt's almost over and yet it's only begun.
I've matured more in these three years than
any other time in my whole life. Now, as I
clean out my locker, I close a part of my life,
and as I head for those double doors for the
last time, I also open up the rest of my
future. This will be a life of changes and
excitementg it's up to me now."

When one looks back to his high school days, the
prom is an event that stands out prominently. With all
of its glitter and excitement, it makes for a very memo-
rable occasion in a student's life. The anticipation and
preparation for the prom also add to the fun of the
"big night." Although sometimes forgotten, the plans
prepared and the work accomplished by the junior
class for the prom are what make it one of the greatest
times a student remembers.
Preparing for the 'lbig night" can be as exciting as
the night itself. While Zeena Brown admires

Even though it takes an entire day to prepare tnot to
mention the long hours spent attempting to find that
perfect dress and a tuxedo to matchl, all time spent is
well worth the night that's ahead. Before the couple
leaves for the night, pictures must be taken by proud
parents. Beginning the enchanting evening by dining
out in an especially nice restaurant with friends brings
even more fun.

A dream came true for me last summer. I
was an AFS exchange student to Cale, Co-
lumbia. I will always think of Colombians as
affectionate, animated, and social people, I
will remember dancing to tropical music,
eating fresh pineapple, and falling asleep to
the music of crickets and Spanish guitars.
I wanted to be an exchange student so I
could experience another culture first-
hand. By doing this I also gained a broader
perspective on my own country. I wanted
to have the opportunity to 'be on my
own." Of course, I lived with a family, but it
was my responsibility to adapt to their cul-
ture and make my own friends. This was
very rewarding although difficult. I made
some friendships I feel will be lasting ones.
Last summer I realized as never before
what living in the United States means. Our
national heritage is part of what we are as
individuals. I gained respect for other peo-
ple as I realized how their cultures play a
part in their lives. Most of all I realized that
beneath our cultures we all love and laugh

The fabulous, spectacular,
Senior year is almost over. Dur-
ing our school years we had
heard that our Senior year is the
best and most fun year ever.
We wondered, though, if ours
would really be that great.
Then, just as anticipated, we
started our year off with a bang!
We really got it together by the
first football game when we
started the PCA. Our spirit
spread and the enthusiasm and
fellowship helped bring stu-
dents closer together.
During the year, many antici-
pated future college and career
plans. This caused mixed feel-
ings and anxieties. However,
this is just part of being a Senior.
But, now that we are almost
ready to put on our caps and
gowns, our Senior year has
proved even better than we
dreamed and we know that this
year has made all of the other
eleven years worthwhile.
Before long, we will all be
'Food for thought."

'lExcuse me. Would you like to buy or

juniors this year learned more about
thing - the PROM! So, the sale is really
important. lust how good a job did the
juniors do this year? A total of over 95
magazines and selling them than they'll
ever learn anywhere. Did you know that
there is a magazine for just about every
sport, hobby, or interest imaginable?
Better Homes 84 Gardens and McCaIIs
were the top-sellers this year, though.
As the customary tradition for juniors,
the magazine sale is done for one major
hundred dollars was collected, selling
about 795 magazine subscriptions.
Miss Meade, lunior Class Advisor, su-
pervised the project along with Mrs. Lit-

Steve Herron tries to decide which style of ring suits him best.
Decisions, decisions. I never thought that choosing my
Ashbrook Class of '84 school ring would be so difficult! I
love the traditional style class ring, but those contempo-
rary styles are nice, too. Should I get the emerald green
setting, or some other stone, like an onyx in the middle?
You can even get the sport you play engraved on the side.
l'm so confused! Okay, I think a size EM will fit. But maybe I
should get a 7 just in case I gain some weight in my fingers.
No, I'd better stick with the size that fits me now. What? I
have to wait six weeks for it to come in? But I'll go abso-
lutely crazy! It will sure give me something to look forward
They're here! The rings have finally arrived! This line l'm
waiting in is slower than the 3:10 bell. Oh gosh - I'm next!
Did I forget my money? Oh, here it is in my coat pocket.
It's an awful lot of money - Is it really going to be worth it!
Oh, that's a beautiful ring, but is this one mine? l'm so
proud! It fits perfectly and it sparkles like a diamond. Look,
everyone, look at my new Ashbrook class ring!

Lunch: n Exclusive
VVhat's the most refreshing period of the day? Lunch, of course,
in the exclusive cafeteria fby reservation onlyl. Students enter the
best of dining experiences as they leisurely walk to their reserved
tables on private rows. Most students get in line for the buffet,
while those that bring elegant bag lunches remain at the table.
While waiting in line, students get a chance to decide on their
choice of gourmet food from the delicious menu. They may
choose anything from hot dogs au gratin to zesty Italian Sicilian
pizza as their entree. A wide range of side dishes are served, also,
like French-fried potatoes and the soup of the day. To top it all off,
desserts like Danish pastries and European pies are served, with ice
cream, of course.
The service is excellent, while the cafeteria prides itself on having
chefs trained on three continents. The staff always surprises the
students by coming up with a new and unusual dish each week. But
the spiciest and juiciest dish being served in the cafeteria lately, has
been the tidbits of gossip and chatter students share each day

The Young, New and Hopeless
Everyone remembers the first day
of school, and the first day of going to
the big 'BROOK". The first thing you
notice is the BIG halls and ALL of those
people. lt is so noisy! As you make
your way through the day, you go
into Mrs. Britt's room and she gives
you 5 pages to read and know for
tomorrow. You soon learn that on Fri-
day there will be a pep rally! You are
dreading it so because of everything
you have heard about upperclass-
men's harrassment, but as Friday rolls
around you are filled with excitement
and before you know it, the pep rally
is here! When you enter the gym, you
learn that the sophomores sit on the
other side! Wait a minute, everyone is
yelling! They are yelling at you, the
sophomores! You are so embar-
rassed! After 30 minutes of yelling,
the pep rally is finally over and so is
the week! As you leave school you
think to yourself, !!My gosh, if the
whole year goes like this week, then l
am in trouble!"

Assistant principals deal with a variety of
challenges everyday. Along with their regular
duties, they must also handle any of the daily
problems that arise. Elaine jenkins and Bill
Wooten are Ashbrook's assistant principals.
This year, they are both co-chaiman of the
Southern Association school evaluation pro-
Mr. Wooten is in charge of discipline, buses,
maintenance, and custodial matters of the
school. He has been here at Ashbrook for four
years, after teaching drivers education at
Hunter Huss High School for five years.
Mrs. lenkins has also been at Ashbrook for
four years. She taught eighth grade social stud-
ies at William C. Friday lunior High School for
seven years before coming to Ashbrook. Mrs.
lenkin's duties include handling the textbooks,
the new computer report cards and schedul-
ing. She also helps with discipline and organiz-
ing instructional funds.
Helping ls Their Role
Behind-the-scenes, but with important
roles to play in students' lives, are Ash-
brook's three guidance counselors, From
the time ninth-graders register for high
school to that magic night when diplomas
are given out, the counselors are instrumen-
tal in helping students choose courses, ca-
reers, and colleges. Although paper work
accumulates in mountainous stacks, they
are ever-willing and ever-capable. Whether
talking to whole classes, small groups or
individual students, they are extremely ef-
fective. Miss Pendleton, Mr. Moore, and
Mrs. Green help each student write his own
life-script and prepare for the changes his
life will hold.
Robert Davis, Charles Elliott, Lander Barnhill, Armand Mando, Bill Wooten, and Elaine jenkins make up
Ashbrook's Advisory Board which holds monthly meetings concerning students.
Mrs. Green was chosen "N.C. Counselor of the
Year" by the N.C. School Counselor Association.
Our guidance counselors, David Moore, lanet
Green, and Barbara Pendleton, are always eager
to help students.

Teachers Direct Students
"Cut, Take five . . . " lust as the directors
of a movie are important to the production,
so are the directors of classes, the teachers.
Movie directors call the shots and basically
"keep the roll moving." This is much like the
job of teachers. They keep the wheels of
learning rolling along each day. As directors,
the teachers job is to introduce his students
to new ideas and unexplored areas of
study, to enlarge their horizons. This is a
demanding but rewarding profession, one

that requires much preparation and dedica-

expanding their own knowledge, often
with the help of their students. Teachers are
a vital part of the Ashbrook life. They can
also become your friends. As one student
said, "As you roll on through life, you may
look back and see that your teachers were
good friends. They were always there to
give you advice if you needed it."

Lives at Al-IS
Creativity is the ability to bring into exis-
tence, to make, or to originate. When most
of us think of creativity, a painter with a
paint brush or a writer of novels comes to
mind. However, these are only a few of the
ways in which the human mind displays its
creative ability. Some of the less obvious
are the guitarist formulating musical notes
into beautiful, harmonious sound, a drafting
student creating plans for his dream house,
a potter at his potters wheel molding a
hunk of clay into a perfectly formed pot, or
the chorus class performing an original
dance step and song, Even a member of the
newspaper staff obtaining information and
writing an article is using his creative talents.
Creativity is Gods gift to man that each of
us returns to mankind.

Ashbrook's Student Cooperative Associ-
ation is the backbone of many of the schools
activities. Each year the SCA sponsors various
projects. Parents' Night, Homecoming, Kans
for Kids, AMAPAM lAs Much As Possible And
Morey week, the bloodmobile, and the school-
wide clean ups are just a few of the SCA spon-
The SCA consists of three main parts. The
SEC lStudent Executive Committeej is com-
posed of committee heads and student body
officers. This group makes new laws and has
the final say on issues before they are sent to
the Senate. The lnter-club council, formally the
House, is made of student body officers, club
presidents, class officers, and school board re-
presentatives. Together they make up the two
remaining parts of our School Government.
They are responsible for new ideas and must
see that these ideas are carried out.
Without the Student Government, Ash-
brook would be much less enjoyable. Many
projects the SCA sponsors go unnoticed. Next
time you have an idea, let your SCA represen-
tative know about itl

lr. Heart Board Ha The Beat S S
Sponsored by the Heart Society, lr.
Heart Board accomplished another year
of service to the community with such
projects as helping at the Heart Society
bazaar and selling wrapping paper and
calendars. This year they held the first
county meeting at the public library. The
purpose of the lr. Heart Board is to pre-
pare its members for useful citizenship
and to provide experience in living and
working together. Persistent efforts of
the lr. Heart Board members made this

Two of the most important service clubs
at Ashbrook are the Keyettes and the Key
Club. The Keyettes, advised by Mrs. Ka-
bool, has seen its membership dwindle
over the past few years. This year the club
did become more active, however. Says
Keyette President Linda Keener, "Our
members were very enthusiastic this year
and this helped make it a good one!" The
Keyettes planned various projects for this
year. Tray favors and clowns for the hospi-
tal, school clean-ups and inner-club activi-
ties are just a few of the ways the Keyettes
have worked towards the betterment of
The Key Club has always been one of the
most popular service clubs at Ashbrook.
This year the Key Club sported 62 mem-
bers. Collecting for muscular distrophy, the
annual light-bulb sale, and school-wide
clean-ups are just a few of its projects.
President Troy Tyner is proud of this year's
club, stating, 'This was one of the Key
Club's most productive years ever!"

'To present to athletes and coaches, and
all whom they influence, the challenge and
adventure of receiving lesus Christ as Savior
and Lord, serving Him in their relationships
and in the fellowship of the church."
This is the stated purpose of the Fellow-
ship of Christian Athletes. FCA is open to
any athlete who wishes to join. lerry Car-
penter, who serves as advisor, asks mem-
bers to make this pledge when joining: L'As
a member of the Fellowship of Christian

about lesus Christ and his way of life, to be
active in His church, to strive to be a Chris-
tian in my personal life, and to share my
convictions with others."

UN FOR TITLE
Ashbrook's Cross Country teams of
1982, coached by Cary Evans, consisted of
members who were very determined.
Their winning season proved that hard
work and practice pay off.
The girls' team approached the season
young and inexperienced with four fresh-
men, two sophomores, one junior and one
senior, however, the season ended with an
excellent record. Their accomplishments in-
clude being undefeated in the Western 4A
Conference for the second consecutive
year. They were second in the Sectionals
and, out of 164 teams, came in fifth in the
state. Two of the outstanding runners were
Marcie Cosine and Angie Scofield, who
were chosen both All-Conference and All-
The boys' team also had an excellent re-
cord. They were fifth in their Conference
and eight in the Sectionals. Greg Warren
was another exceptional runner who was
chosen for the All-Gazette team.
Coach Mike Holland's voice echoes
throughout the pool area at Belmont Ab-
bey's Wheeler Center. HOkay, give me one
more 200 IM, divers, take one more dive
each." You feel the pressure as you strive
for that extra speed in your last practice lap.
The first meet of the season will be under-
way tomorrow and the team you're swim-
ming against is rival Shelby High, one of the
best teams in the state. Excelling in speed
and quickness, the Shelby Lions will put the
Greenwaves to the test.
Swimming and diving are sports often un-
publicized, yet just as important as any oth-
er sport played at Ashbrook. The athletes
who participate are extremely dedicated. It
is the only sport not practiced on campus,
and the time involved in practice alone is
tremendous. This problem with location
doesn't seem to bother most swimmers,
such as Chris Holman. Chris is a state cham-
pion in two events, the 200 IM, and the 200
freestyle. She is the first girl to win a state
championship at Ashbrook, but she doesn't
supply all the strength to the girls team.
There are many more girls who contribute

llNothing but great" can be used to de-
scribe the 1982 Greenwave Football Team.

ship Team set numerous Ashbrook records.
The team recorded more shutouts and
more victories than any other Ashbrook
team. They were undefeated in conference
play, manhandling most every team, also,

job with the result that all players per-

as a smooth running team.
All of Gaston County has reason to be
proud of their Greenwave. The team had
to fight hard to win the respect they re-
ceived and deserved. Even though the goal
of a state championship eluded Ashbrook,
the team brought excitement and a new
surge of spirit to the school and community.
There were many tears on the night of the

Coach Mike Connelly's 1983 Creenwave
Basketball Team sweated through many
hours of strenuous practice. The emphasis
of these practices was on building up quick-
ness and upping the tempo of play. The
result was a high-potency offense which
had the capability of obliterating any oppo-
nent at any time. When the high-speed of-
fense, spearheaded by Vincent 'lSpotlight"
Walker and Carvin 'CP" Petty, got into gear
there was no stopping it.
Coach Connelly also stressed a pressure,
full-court defense. The utilization of full-
court presses and tough man-to-man de-
fense caused many opponents to crumble
under the pressure. The combinations of
these elements proved to be quite success-
ful and gave Ashbrook a team to be proud

When most people think of wrestling
they often associate it with the typical tele-
vision wrestlers like Rick Flair, Wahoo
McDaniel, Dusty Rhodes, and Blackjack
Mulligan. Ashbrook wrestling, however, is
an entirely different sport.
Ashbrook wrestling involves discipline.
Team members may have to go on strict
diets to qualify for a lower weight class.
Practice is also a key factor in pinning oppo-
nents. Wrestlers must master various holds
and strategies to gain an advantage. They
also lift weights and endure grueling wor-
kouts to achieve physical fitness and
But, winning requires more than strength.

at the crack of dawn to head out to the greens.
If he is "up to par" he will attempt 18 holes.

In recent years, the number of women
who participate in sports has increased.
Gradually, more and more girls are becom-
ing involved in sports. Whether it is basket-
ball, or track, girls' sports are attracting a
great deal of attention.
lt may not seem difficult to be a competi-
tor in any sports event, but those who do
participate know the real meaning of athlet-
ics. lt is not only the hard practices and
dedication to the team, but the tight sched-
ule that one must keep. The time spent out
of season is important also. Track events
know no season. In order for a runner to

As in all other sports, track must be an
activity that one enjoys. A participant must
be willing to give tremendous effort and

The tension builds, you start to feel the
butterflies in your stomach, you approach
the starting line and get into position, the
gun is fired and you're off, trying to break
away from the pack, As you end the first
, two laps you start to feel the strain, but the
excitement of the moment fills you, and
you push even harder. As you approach the
finish line all you can think is 'get ahead and
win!" You feel that last burst of energy and
cross the finish line first! You've just won
your first race and all your hard work and
training has paid offll
Of course, running events aren't the only
aspect of track, The field events are equally
as strenuous and take just as much practice
and dedication. The boys' track team of

Many elements are involved in the devel-
opment of an Ashbrook athlete. Perhaps
the most important aspect of participating
in a sport is the practice time involved. Prac-
tice is not as glamorous or exciting as actual
competition, but it is a necessity.
As the competition stiftens every year,
the need for specialization in an athletes
respective sport increases. Qften competi-
tors attend summer sports camps to further
concentrate on weaknesses and attain new
techniques. The mastery ot new techniques
is being emphasized more and more, This
constitutes a higher degree of precision

part of a typical football practice.
within high school athletics.
The need for conditioning is another im-
portant aspect. Football requires great
stamina, basketball requires quickness and
versatility, and track requires endurance
The time spent by Ashbrook athletes in
actual competition is just a small part of
their commitment to sports. Rigorous
weight training, summer practices, working
out on the tennis court and in the batting
cage year-round, and running long dis-
tances in freezing weather all make a suc-
cessful athletic program at Ashbrook.

When I think of
graduation . . .
l7n not at at anxious to graduate from high school I guess its
because I don't know how: I've never done it before. Also, lm secure
with things the way they are. It took me 12 years to start liking school
and now they want me to leave. Its not fain Ils soon as you begin to look
forward to each school day you get pushed out of high school High
schools fun. Its a lot more fun than I had expected it to be. Isuppose
theres only so much fun you can ha ve in high school and if you stayed
as long as you wanted to you woadd begin to lose appreciation for all the
fun and friends you have. I can't wait to go to college. Ialso can 't wait
to spend this summer not being able to wait for college.
I think of all the formality hi the ceremony - the march, the
speeches. You have to endure all this and then the time comes when
they announce your name. You feel really exhilarated and satisfied
because you know you 've accormlished something and had fun doing it.
Graduation is also a scary moment. At that point, when they call your
name, you realke that you must begbr your future life. Up until nom you
ha ve fobowed a set pattem. lt is sad to think about growing older after
high school llove the age that I am rkht now
It causes me to look back over the past 12 years and wonder whatl
have accomplished - I wonder if I have used my talents to their fullest
We wril no longer realty be a part of things here. I think the old sa ying,
"You can never go back home' again and expect things to be the
same, " holds true.
I would have never thought that I would be sad when I
thought about graduation because, like everyone else, I have
been anxious for my independence. I've never really thought
about anything but getting out and going on to bigger and
better things. But now, with graduation getting closer, I realize
that l'll probably never see everyone together again until our
10th reunion. I remember all the fantastic times that I've had at
Ashbrook, but then I realize that soon l'll no longer be a part of
the classroom routine and special friends. It is a lonely feeling to
know that only memories of the things you care about now can
go with you for the rest of your life.
I know that this yearbook will bring back special memories of
our senior year. The staff and I have worked so very hard to
make this the best yearbook for the best class. The staff has
been more than marvelous in piecing this I'year-long puzzle"
together to make a beautiful book. Our Business Manager, Lori,
has done a fabulous job with the organization of our money and
she kept all of our records straight. Bonner, Iulie, Susan, Lori, and
Helen all did a super job with their sections and I would have
been totally lost without their unyielding help. Our extremely
off-the-wall but dedicated photographers, Warren, Ioe, Steven,
and Millie, did an awesome job with their huge responsibility. All
the seniors along with the rest of the class did an overwhelming-
ly spectacular iob and they never once let me down. Mrs.
Connor and her Accounting II class cannot be forgotten, for
without their help, yearbook sales would have been absolutely
impossible. Mrs. Laverne Davis is very much appreciated be-
cause she gave me, all the section editors, and the photogra-
phers the background, encouragement, and confidence to build
this book into what we wanted it to be. Leon Lewis, our Delmar
representative, has put so much time and patience into our
book and me that I have to thank him especially for a job
excellently done. Mrs. Layton, bless her heart, has been the
whole life-line of this yearbook. I can't even begin to express my
personal feelings of thankfulness and appreciation toward her
never-failing understanding and up-lifting attitude toward me.
When the pressure of deadlines would start knocking me in the
ground, she would be right there to pull me up, juice me up, and
get me going again in a positive direction, I speak for the whole
staff when I say IIThank you and we love you."
These past three years have been very important to me, and
the caring and sharing as well as the fears and tears will always
be remembered no matter what. As life goes on, "Rolling with
the changes" is an essential part of coping and handling our
future. I sincerely hope that the 1983 Leaves of Green helps to
bring back all of the wonderful and meaningful feelings that our
high school years have created. Every member of the Class of
'83 has made this year special and I wish everyone loads of good
luck. God Bless You!
