It has grown from two to six buildings with approximately five million dollars invested. The instructional program has been re- cognized and accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. One of its most im- pressive aspects is that its gradu- ates are employed in almost every business and industry throughout Western North Carolina. These accomplishments could not have been achieved without the coopera- tion and coordination of students, faculty and administration. We can not cease working and praise our- selves for the accomplishments of the past. We must look to the fu- ture and work for the betterment of our school. Some of the things we need and hope to achieve are an engineering tech- nology building and a learning re- sources center, incorporating a library, learning lab and student activities building.

GRACE TENNENT, Assistant Librarian 3. shirley McLaughlin Librarian ' W Hi liiis Students at Asheville Buncombe Technical Institute are fortu- nate to have a learning lab on the campus. This lab provides each student with programmed units of instruction that are flexible enough to serve a vari- ety of development, remedial, supplementary, and general interest functions. Programmed textbooks, film- strips, slides, records, tape cassettes, study scopes and texts are available. With these conveniences, assignments may be completed and studying may be done. It is also open to individuals in preparation for the High School Equivalency Examination. Those pre -technical and pre- vocational students who need to be refreshed in English, science, or mathematics be- fore entering a regular curric- ulum may do so. The general public is welcome to increase their vocational and academic potential too. Since there are no formal classes, the student may be- gin at any convenient time and proceed at his own learning rate. An instructor is always available to give assistance and to determine if the student is progressing satisfactorily. The learning lab is open from 8:00 a. m. to 9:15 p.m. , Mon- day through Thursday evenings and from 8:00 a. m. until 4:00 p. m. on Friday. There is no charge for study in the lab. The only admission requirements are that a person must be 18 or older and must desire educational improvement. Try it and see. You ' ll be able to understand what the learn- ing lab is all about. 1 .

A regular routine and responsibilities for his staff has paid off in better maintenance and service for the school campus. A regular staff and several students un- der the work study program are his responsibility and together they are performing a job that deserves a pat on the back. 29 FUTURE MANAGERS In North Carolina the oppor- tunities in business are in- creasing. With the increas- ing population and industrial development in this state, business has become more competitive and automated. Better opportunities in busi- ness will be filled by students with specialized education beyond the high school level. The Business Administration Curriculum is designed to prepare the student for em- ployment in one of many oc- cupations common to busi- ness. Training is aimed at preparing the student in many phases of administrative work that might be encoun- tered in the average business. 33 PROBLEMS GALORE The electronic data processing curriculum is designed to give the student a broad background in business data processing. Technical courses emphasiz- ing computer programming in several modern computer lan- guages, systems and proced- ures in data processing, and computer operations are sup- ported by many courses from which practical business. commercial and industrial ap- plication problems may be se- lected. The data processing- courses include lectures to introduce theory and new con- cepts, example problems uti- lizing common techniques, and practical laboratory problems for the individual student. If your ultimate goal is frus- trations, gray hair, ulcers, nervous tension, and migraine headaches, data processing at Asheville -Buncombe Technical Institute is the program for you. Despite your best efforts, the machinery will always pre- sent problems. Line trouble, card games, printer failures, and scrambled data decks are all a part of the daily routine. Actually data processing isn ' t as bad as we make it sound, but two years of it will make, break, or kill you. 36 HELPING HANDS The well -trained secretary is a an important company member wherever she is found: in busin- ness, industry, government, or the professions. She generally has pleasant and comfortable working conditions, is engaged in interesting projects and work, and with experience, may ad- vance to office supervisory positions. With the increased expansion of the business world, job opportunities for individuals with this training will continue to grow. 37 £ CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY CHECKING FUTURE BOUNDARIES The Civil Technology pro- gram trains technicians who will work with skilled crafts- men and engineers in per- forming the various functions included in the broad field of construction. The student receives instruc- tion in the theory and prac- tice of surveying, and project layouts. Instruction is also given in lines and grades for foundations, building con- struction, bridge layout and sewer and pipe line surveys. 41 FRINGE BENEFITS ARE EXCELLENT Drafting and design technicians translate the ideas, rough sketches, specifications, and calculations of designers and engineers into accurate work- ing drawings which may be used to make product models, tools, fixtures, and other items. The technician may be involved in calculating the strength, relia- bility, and cost of materials, or he may produce drawings and specifications which graphically describe exactly what materials and processes are to be used on a particular job. He must also be able to use engineering hand- books and tables that will assist in solving technical problems. As these technicians gain skill and experience, they may ad- vance to positions of checkers, detailers, senior draftsmen, or supervisors. Many, who have gained experience and have creative ability, will become designers of tools, jigs and fixtures, dies, and production items. Others will transfer into engineering positions. The in- creasingly complex design problems of modern products and processes will continue to keep the demand for trained drafting and design technicians as supporting personnel at a high level. 42 REPAIRING COMPLICATED ERRORS A well -equipped and well- manned electronics department is an integral part of the curri- cula at tech. It is designed to give the student a firm back- ground in electronics and pre- pares him to become an elec- tronic circuit designer. The Institute of Electrical and Elec- tronic Engineering is an inter- national organization designed to help keep the engineer well- informed about the changing world of electronics. A grad- uate of this department is ac- cepted into the organization af- ter graduation, while in the meantime, the organization is working with the students to organize a student chapter here at Tech. i nm There are certain identifiable duties which are common to all technicians of this general class- ification and which comprise the basic areas of technical know- ledge they need. This curricu- lum has been designed for train- ing persons in the accepted per- formance of these basic duties that will be assigned, and to enable the individual to become proficient in a short time after METAL PL A YTHINGS “ es emp ’° yed in the in 47 GAINING KNOWLEDGE FOR THE PURPOSE OF SERVING OTHERS direction of the Hotel and Res- taurant Management students. This provides valuable experi- ence in their field. After an application of the knowledge gained from the curriculum and training pro- gram on the job, the graduate of this curriculum will be able to assume the responsibilities of management in Catering, Food and Beverage Controller, Managing Director, Food and Beverage Manager, Restaurant Manager, Assistant Manager, Front Office Management, Director of Sales, Purchasing Agent, and Executive House- keeper. 48 FUTURE CHEFS The goals of the culinary de- partment of Asheville Buncombe Technical Institute are these: (1) To welcome students with a sincere interest in food service, to stimulate their curiosity by the use of the most up to date books, and through practical training. (2) To acquaint the student with the various preparations, as well as the service, of good cuisine as it is served in noted hotels and restaurants through- out the country. (3) To produce, upon graduation excellent prospects as potential chefs. To achieve the aims of the de- partment, the student will be required to have a working knowledge of all phases of food preparation and the language of the kitchen. His journey will begin with an introduction to the equipment, its operations, and the safety hazards. The student must be highly profi- cient in personal hygiene and in sanitation of the kitchen whi le performing his assigned duties. By learning these areas, along with Buffet catering, ice carving and vintage wines, the AB Tech Culinary Department hopes to graduate a well-rounded, fully - prepared student, ready to ven- ture into the world of classical cuisine and, eventually, the position of chef. 51 LET ME TAKE " You may see yourself on the outside, but we show you the inside. " These are words that may flow from the mouths of stu- dents in the X-ray department. As a member of the health team, these students are vital to the health profession. Each day, whether in classroom or clinical YOUR PICTURE practice, may bring new insights into the field of medicine. To- morrow’s health may depend upon today ' s student. Asheville - Buncombe Technical Institute is proud to educate members of this health team. Without them, the medicine profession would be at a slower rate of progress. 52 WHO ARE WE? Licensed practical nurses assist in the care and treatment of the physically and mentally ill, un- der the direction of physicians or professional nurses. As members of a nursing team, they perform many of the less complex tasks, thus freeing pro- fessional nurses for more skill- ed and specialized duties. They may also assist physicians or professional nurses with com- plicated diagnostic procedures or treatments. Practical nurses usually give prescribed treatments, take patient’s temperature, pulse and blood pressure readings, and helping with bathing and other personal hygiene tasks. They may also provide nursing care for newborn babies and their mothers, the handicapped, the chronically ill, or the con- valescent. They are employed by hospitals, clinics, rest homes for the aged, and as pri- vate duty nurses. Classroom activities are planned to help students develop the knowledge basic to effective nursing. They are encouraged to analyze patient needs through the study of hypothetical situa- tions and , through planned clinical experience. Initial learn- ing of skills is provided by laboratory sessions. Clinical activities are scheduled to par- allel material that the students are learning in the classroom. As the year progresses, more time is spent in the hospital and less time is spent in the classroom. NURSES OF TOMORROW Nineteen hundred and seventy - two A.D. salutes the first Associate Degree in Nursing graduates. These students work together, striving for more comprehensive and ef- ficient health care. Class- room studies in the new para- medical building at the Ins ti- tute plus clinical experience in local hospitals provide the necessary education for this program. Courses in basic chemistry, English, psycho- logy, anatomy, sociology, microbiology, and nursing go together to make up this cur- riculum. Experiences were shared by one and all. Dis- secting cats to locate organs and muscles, practicing in- jections first on oranges, then on fellow students, and looking at bacteria and cell structures under the micro- scope provided a pleasant ex- perience for some students and a harrowing experience for others. 54 ! Guests from hospitals located throughout the state help the students choose specialities in health care other than general bedside nursing, such as anes- thesia, Public Health, Operating Room, Red Cross and Charge Nurses. Hours spent on care plans, care studies, medication cards, and term papers will al- ways be remembered by stu- dents in this program. Instruc- tors are not to be forgotten. They have worked long and hard to provide adequate education to make this program excel com- munity college requirements in Nursing. Students passing State Board Examinations will go on, as Registered Nurses, to ca- reers that need to be filled. 55 OUR JOB: KEEPING THE COOL The air conditioning and refri- geration industry is continuing to grow faster than the gross national product. The expected growth for the next decade is an average annual increase of seven percent. There is an existing shortage of man power which will con- tinue for some time. This field is so new that the professional people think we have just barely scratched the surface. There are so many different areas involved that they make this career field interesting with a good income for anyone. 56 TEAR ‘EM DOWN, BOYS The complexity of modern auto- motive vehicles increases each year due to new scientific dis- covery and engineering. These changes are reflected not only in passenger vehicles but also in trucks, buses, and a variety of gasoline -powered equipment. It is therefore very important that our communities prepare trained individuals to maintain and repair these vehicles. The automotive mechanics cur- riculum prepares the student to fill these roles by giving him the necessary theoretical courses and practical training on mock-ups and actual vehicles so that, upon graduation, he may enter a shop and earn a living as an automotive mechan- ic. Through additional contin- uing education, he should be able to advance rapidly in his field. COMMUNITY BUILDERS OF TOMORROW When one visits the carpentry shop he usually finds the stu- dents deeply absorbed in the per suit of constructing a cabi- net, desk, bookcase, or devel- oping some idea he may be try- ing to sketch for future construc- tion; but it doesn ' t end here. The department includes a vari- ety of knowledge needed in the construction field with confi- dence that he knows his field and that he is ready to help his fellow man. To sum up, the course gives us the opportunity to use both the mind and hands together to pro- duce a work of skill by applying the things gained from the year of study here at Tech. 58 A REALLY CLEAN JOB This curriculum is constructed to give each student a founda- tion in diesel engine and hydrau- lic systems and go into the areas of electrical, steering, fuel, suspension, cooling, and lubri- cating. The area of heavy equip- ment maintenance offers a wide variety of occupational oppor- tunities. This program will give a student the basic knowledge and the industry will provide the opportunity to apply this knowledge in a specific area of work. The machine shop course is a program designed to teach, the student the theory of the ma- chine shop and instruct the in- dividual in the practical opera- tion of various machines. The student desiring to be well qualified as a machinist must complete different courses with total understanding in the theory phase of the program. The future machine operator must be able to communicate with his fellow employees and with prospective customers so two english courses and one human relations course are taught. He must also be fluent in mathematics , blueprinting, and other related courses. Upon completion of the program the student is able to fit into positions in industry, general shops, and in private shops. MACHINE SHOP METAL MENDERS The purpose of this course is to provide a sound training pro- gram of the skills involved in welding along with a background of technical information needed by the modern welder. The curriculum is designed to give the student a sound founda- tion in the principles, practices, and usages of both gas and elec- tric welding in modern industry. During the past twelve months, many hours have been spent absorbing lectures, doing prac- tice laboratory procedures, searching for answers and learning to function in a medi- cal laboratory. Each laboratory department at Memorial Mis- sion Hospital has been thorough- ly and diligently searched by every student, using the know- ledge gained in the classroom as a basis for further, richer knowledge gained only by direct hospital experience. It isn ' t easy being a medical laboratory assistant. It takes a lot of work, patience, compassion, and dedication to helping others. But, the rewards are many, both personal and professional, and they continue to enrich our knowledge of our function in the medical laboratory. 63 EXPANDING Every student that comes through the curricula offered here must go through this de- partment; a minimum of 18 hours for technical students, and 8 hours for vocational stu- dents. Every time a new curri- culum is added, this department is affected both by an increase in hours and in students so the departmental staff must keep ex- panding. This department is not concerned solely with your oc- cupational well-being and suc- cess. This is why you take Eng- lish, sociology, psychology, and or human relations. Under the dynamic leadership of Maxie Welch this department will con- tinue to give you the " spice " 64 DYNAMICS needed to round out your educa- tion. Mr. Welch says, that to be a success in one area, you have to be a success in each area-- this means success as an indi- vidual (being a good parent, hus- band, wife, tec.), as an occu- pational being and as a social being (able to get along in a group, make friends, etc. ) Mr. Welch believes that many stu- dents don’t realize the value of good English and they " knock” it because it seems to be the thing to do. This department added a reading lab this year and plans on installing closed circuit television in the very near future. STRIVING TO MEET COMMUNITY NEEDS The concept of Continuing- Education during the entire lifetime of the individual is made available by the Adult Education classes at Ashe- ville Buncombe Technical Institute. These include: Vocational and Technical courses for training prior to employment or on-the-job training; Adult Basic Educa- tion classes for individuals desiring a higher educational level; Supervisory Develop- ment Training for industrial and business personnel; Hos- pitality Education for the tourist, hotel -motel, and restaurant industry; a Man- power Development program designed to assist the unem- ployed individual in learning- how to obtain and keep a job; a New and Expanding Industry program designed to assist a new or growing industry with their training needs; a Gener- al Adult and Community Ser- vices program to provide avocational courses to the gen- eral public for personal en- richment. It should be noted, however, that Continuing Education is not limited to the above areas; the program ' s scope is virtu- ally limitless. 66 STRIVING TO MEET INDIVIDUAL NEEDS An important area in continuing- education is that of Adult Basic Education. The Program is de- signed for any adult who has not completed an elementary or high school education. Free classes offer the opportunity to study basic reading and writing, English, reading comprehen- sion, math, social studies, and science. The program can as- sist an adult in passing the equivalency (GED) test. All materials are designed for adults with emphasis on indi- vidual needs and interests. At all levels, instruction is close- ly related toward helping the student to better meet his adult responsibilities. 67 INSTRUCTORS ALWAYS THEY ARE FOUNTAINS OF IN- FORMATION READY TAPPED 1.

SAMUEL HURST 116 AMERICAN JUNIOR COLLEGES This year for the first time, A-B Tech participated in the national program for Who ' s Who Among Students in American Junior Colleges. A unique committee was formed with equal student-faculty repre- sentation to establish the criteria for se- lection. Points were assigned to the areas of academic achievement, major depart- mental evaluation, community involve- ment, and school service. These areas were developed from the suggested nation- al criteria of scholarship, participation, and leadership in extracurricular activi- ties, citizenship and service to the school, and promise of future usefulness. This distinct honor has been bestowed upon eight students from the two year degree - granting programs. MISS A B TECH AND HER COURT LEFT TO RIGHT: DONNA HOLLAR.

Our own Chris Gibbs and his staff of helpers from the Culinary Arts department provided the food. The menu featured bar-b-qued spare ribs, and chicken, potato salad, slaw, rolls, watermelon, corn- on -the -cob dipped in butter, lemonade, and iced tea. Awards were presented to sev- eral students for their out- standing achievement in their major areas. Mrs. Judy Ellis was recognized as the outstand- ing secretary of the year; Mr. Paul Tate was recognized for outstanding achievement in Mechanical Engineering Tech- nology. Mr. Howard Lytle was recognized as the outstanding Culinary student; Mr. Jerry Curtis was recognized as the outstanding Motelman; Miss Cathy Sue Fletcher and Mr. Wilburn Williams, second year Data processing students, were recognized for their outstand- ing achievement in their major curriculum; Mr. Ralph Brown, Mr. Steve McCoy, and Mr. Tom Swafford were the first year data processing students who were recognized for out- standing achievement in data processing. The field day was planned and sponsored by the Student Acti- vities Committee in response to requests for an activity on campus, during the day, in which a great number of stu- dents could participate. It was funded through the Student Activity fees paid by all full- time day students. 122 123 125 Many sporting events have ta- ken place since last Spring. Civil Engineering won the Intra- mural Basketball Tournament last Spring and this year making them winners for three succes- sive years. For two consecu- tive years they have won in In- tramural Football. The only tournament Civil didn ' t win this year was the Volleyball Tour- nament, in which they were de- throned by Drafting and Design. A highlight of the Basketball In- tramurals this year was the en- trance of two girls ' teams who managed to win one game while the boys won four. Next year we hope to have girls to partici- pate in volleyball as well as basketball.

An annual activity brought to the campus by the Asheville Regional Red Cross is the blood mobile. Students relate school activities with commun- ity services by becoming blood donors. We strive for more coordination between the com- munity and the Institute. Each year a plaque is awarded to the curriculum that donates the most pints of blood percentage wise. Asheville -Buncombe Technical Institute competes with other trade schools and colleges in blood donations to provide blood for hospitals in the area. Practical Nurse Ed- ucation, Electronics Technolo- gy, Hotel and Restaurant Man- agement I. , Diesel Engines, and Hydraulic were first time winners. Tool and Die Making won for the second consective year. This is a worth while program; many lives are saved through the student and faculty generosity. 140 LEFT: Group picture of Tool and Die winners, second consecutive year. 141 TOWERING LIKE TREES These two soaring buildings on our campus were just complet- ed this year. They stand above the other buildings on campus. The architecture is new and re- freshing; even so, the buildings are functional. They have only been used one year but already they have developed a strength and character to match both the times and the mountains.

In posting 12 wins and 9 losses, the team averaged 86. 6 points per game while limiting their opponents to an average of 75.0 points per game. Accomplishments this year included the first win ever over a 4 year college var- sity team and a second place finish in the Western Techni- cal School Tournament. The team was led by two high scoring guards in Ronnie Brock and Larry Elliott, who aver- aged 17. 5 and 17. 8 points per game respectively. In addition, Larry Elliott and Stanley King were named to the all -tourna- ment team in the Technical School Tournament. The highest individual scoring effort came against Isothermal Community College when Ron- nie Brock canned 42 points in a brilliant performance. Larry Elliott also set a school record by scoring 373 points in a sin- gle season. Rick Griswold was voted by his teammates as the most improv- ed player while Will Moore, who supplied his teammates with enough spirit in practice and in the games, was voted the player with the Best Team Spirit. 153 % WOO DIE OR AN IRON This year was A-B ' s first effort with an Intercollegiate Golf Team. As we go to press, the score stands at 3 wins and 1 loss. 154 Iplll Mike Bradley Robbie Daniels Jack Davis, Advisor Mike Stanley Mike Brookshire Bill Blevins Paul Smith 155 » ®«as - wr ■- r ., , M?Sr - %., «■ . - w» ' • ' ■ J MjtWB ■HKSH| murnm s ■w ! v i _ ■» « k er v «- ORGANIZATIONS 157 CHEERLEADERS IN ACTION BACK ROW- Janet Warren- Co-Captain, Brenda Snipes, Lynn Harkins FRONT ROW- Donna Hollar, Tommie joyce-Captain, Melody Davis LEFT- Cynthia Daniels- Sponsor 158 V- nk STUDENT LEADERSHIP The Student Advisory Council is the governing agency of the student body and acts within the framework of the Institute ' s policies and regulations. As the voice of the students, the council serves as the founda- tion of student leadership and acts as a clearing house for student opinion. It has the res- ponsibility of communicating with students, the faculty, ad- ministration, staff, and com- munity leaders. The student voice is heard through the Stu- dent Advisory Council; this voice gives strength and brings respect to the elected mem- bers of the Council. Every curriculum on campus is represented at the meetings of the Advisory Council. This not only gives representation to everyone, but serves as a channel of communication from both trade and technical pro- grams, thus making A-B Tech, a stronger, more united school. All student activities are spon- sored by the council. As the school has increased in num- ber, so have the activities. This past year the council sponsored the Miss A-B Tech. Dance, Homecoming, a Spring Dance, Field Day, a summer picnic and a Graduation Dance. There are four elected officers; President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. These officers are elected lea- ders of the entire student body, they must be representatives of all factions on campus and 160 work for the good of the stu- dent body and entire institu- tion. As leaders of the student body, they must work and help foster greater communication with campus personnel and community leaders. The Student Advisory Council is the one vital link of com- munication that A-B Tech. has. It not only works toward better communications but the strengthening and betterment of A-B Tech, is making it the best Technical school any- where. The incoming students last fall expressed a strong interest in sup- porting an institu te newspaper. Through the efforts of Mr. Paul Rey- nolds and Mrs. Shirley McLaughlin, the first issue of THE NUCLEUS was published. This effort was then turned over to interested students who continued the effort with the publication of two additional issues. Unfortunately, student interest did not con tinue and THE NUCLEUS was discontinued. It is hoped that the incoming students and second-year students, in the fall of 1972, will want to revive THE NUCLEUS and nurture it into a going concern. Students need a voice .... THE NUCLEUS is waiting! ALUMNI ASSOCIATION The Asheville -Buncombe Tech. Alumni Association was tenta- tively organized during the first A-B Tech Homecoming activi- ties held in February, 1971. At that time four officers were selected whose duties included the formulation of a constitu- tion for the organization. This was undertaken and at a general membership meeting in Decem- ber the new constitution was ratified. At this year ' s home- coming festivities, the associa- tion elected new officers and established a membership fee. A correspondence concerning membership will go out in the Sam Sharpe - President Susan Plemmons - Vice President Joy Taylor - Secretary Gary Blair - Treasurer summer. The Forum was born two years ago when President Simpson sug- gested that there should be some standing committee representa- tive of all Institute personnel to act on matters of general interest, including suggestions on policy. The Forum has been, and will doubtless continue to be, quite active as the Institute continues to grow. The present member- ship includes: Mike Miller, who represents the student body; Shirley McLaughlin; Bob Parker; Jim Rhea; Carolyn Shotwell; David Wolfe; Paul Reynolds; Olin Wood; Toby Shook; Ann Cool- ey; and Ray Bailey.

Most are willing to do things for themselves but many pre- fer to volunteer their talents to the enjoyment others may receive. Being able to work on the annual has brought out many of these talents - some known - some unknown til now. Although one ' s memory is not a talent, we hope that in trying to present a totally new and different book that no person or area was forgotten. Expressions of yesteryear lead to the expressions of tomorrow — a key to the better understanding of man
