IN MEMORIAM THOMAS W. SIMPSON 1927-1975 TABLE OF CONTENTS Foreword 2 Introduction 3 Campus Life 7 Athletics 35 Curriculum 51 Administration 91 Individual Photographs 107 I ■ ( FOREWORD The 1975 edition of MOUNTAIN TECH is published to capture within its covers life as it is lived from day to day at A-B Tech. Each of the graduating students came to this Institution with different ideas, ambitions, and beliefs. Little did these students know that Tech presented a challenge and an opportu- nity for achievement maximum in the varied curricula. A-B Tech, because of its competent instruction, has satisfied these students ' dreams and wishes. To capture the many nuances that occurred from day to day would be insur- mountable; and, with that thought in mind, this book is intended to bridge the gap from a historical point of view from 1974 to 1975. With these final words, we proudly present the 1975 MOUNTAIN TECH. 2 Some of the nicest memories that we shall take with us from A-B Tech will be of campus life - new friend- ships formed outside the classroom; playing cards in the lobby or the snack bar; playing intramural basketball, tag football, volleyball; cheerlead- ing; working on the Student Se nate; being a member of a curriculum club; getting to know people in our classes who have different ideas and attitudes than ours; joking during class breaks; writing articles for the newspaper or newsletter; recognition for work well done. All of these experiences have helped us grow into more mature understanding human beings. Within these pages we have captured a few of these rare moments in campus life. 4 5 SMI |jjf % s If if ft k Wpvff ; Jk I 4 8 In Class In Class? The Christmas Party was great. Photo by: R.E.

A combination of leadership, academic honors, participation in school activities, involvement in community and service programs contributed to their recognition. They have displayed present ability and future potential.

The Christmas Party and the Carnival head the list too. Field Day activi ties were planned by our campus so Ions. Dr. Bruce Hilton ' s very infor- mative lecture was sponsored by the Senate as was Dr. Stanton Friedman ' s on UFO ' s. They are to be commended. Very few politicians (?) such as them get as much done as they did. The Senate expresses appreciation to Mary L . Carpenter for her ener- gies and sincere concern. 32 . . . WORKING HARD.

Congratulations to the Drafting II team for their effort. It paid off; they won the championship. BASKETBALL 1975 The 74-75 basketball sea- son was a good one. Reflecting on some of the events, you re- alize just how far the Atomics went. To start off by losing val- uable players is notan ideal situation. Even more frustrating is regaining a lost eager and losing him again. These are reasons for any team to quit. Evidently, our cagers know quitters never win because they never quit. As shown in some pictures, the team kept on trucking until they got to Hef- len, Alabama. Just wait until next year opponents of A-B Tech and never forget this year. Ssaffl r . l ' i ,• 1 yjv » m 1 “ k 1 2 2 1 . Y) ww 1 For a job well done and a season to be proud of, we have the following to be thankful for. Front Row: Lamont Wright, Larry Suber, Mike Linney, Dennis Gillespie, W.C. Hare, Coach Ken Driver. Back Row: Coach Jim Rhea, Mike Bowlin, Rick Ellinburg, Darrell Boone, Gene Edwards, Butch Robin- son. The Atomics season record was 17-10 making a sure- fire winning season for the Victoria Road Cagers. All backing for this past season was the work of the many numerous fans. Without backing you cannot expect much performance. 38 The girls, in spite of injuries , did well . They end- ed their play with a 6-7 season. Not bad at all . We have a few players re- turning so there is hope for a prosperous season. (Above Right) Mike Bowlin was named to the All-Conference and A I l-Toumament teams this year; a very suitable reward for a deserv- ing player. Also, receiving honors this year was Larry Suber, who unquestionably was voted " Most Valuable Player. " ALPHA PSI OMEGA VS WISE OWLS Alpha Psi Omega ' s second annual benefit basket- ball game was staged to raise funds for the Scholarship Foundation. The Alpha Psi Omega All-Stars battled against the Big WISE Owls in a rollicking, rock-and- rolling game of very little skill , quite a bit of chance, and a whole lot of lunacy. 40 am 1975 Golf Team - n i tli l s % s if ’ f. r " FRONT ROW LEFT TO RIGHT: Craig Cable, Charles Henry, Tommy Davis, Dick Manion.

As many of the pictures following will show, pie throwing and the dunking booth also proved to be popular. 48 CARNIVAL 1975 A carnival reveals a lot of things. For in- stance the concern of the student senators who put hours into planning. Numerous days were spent building and testing booths. More than anything though it all was worthwhile when the event finally arrived. With the dedication of this page to the carnival, we thank the many persons who participated at all levels. • N ► T 4 ' , 4 t At- C . ' «» Jfc j I «V i 1 ■ I .

For instance, Diane Freeman, on the left, is seen with her father ' s car, a 1934 Hudson. It ' s value is placed in the high price bracket and is one of only three in existence. Then, per- iodically, birthdays are planned, trips to the beach without even leaving the office, and occasion- ally we find our Veterans Service officer coaching basketball. The Bloodmobile would be in vain (pardon the pun), if not for Mary Carpenter. SECRETARIAL STAFF TOP TO BOTTOM Left: Fran Hensley, Diane Freeman, Sharon Waugh.

You say, " So what? Lots of people die in car accidents. What ' s new about that? " Have you ever lost someone you liked because of an accident on the highway or anywhere? Someone you knew you could trust with a deep, dark secret? Someone you could talk to and know that he ' d listen? Somebody--! don ' t know--somebody, you know? A friend is a person who likes you because you like him. You get to know him through acquaintances at work, at church, at school, wherever. The bond of friendship comes to- gether the first time you meet and strengthens as time goes on. When times are bad, a friend is the natural in a score of otherwise flat notes; someone who is never sharp unless it ' s necessary. A friend is the sunshine and warmth in a life of dark and cold; a smile, a wink, a pat on the back, an " Awright! " when you ' re a winner; and a " Shake it off, Man. You ' ll make it, " when you ' re a loser. A friend is someone to be a friend to. He is some- one you get down on your knees and thank God for at the end of the day. It ' s part of your life. A friend for life is a friend forever. Having someone like that close by in a time of tragedy or in a time of real joy can be the ultimate high. You don ' t need Pot or Coke or Pills or any type of drug. All you need is a friend. Period. To a person who is lonely; literally with no one in the world to turn to, someone who he can call " Friend " can be like finding the pot at the end of the rainbow, Gold and all. It can be like finding a treasure trove, a gold mine, a bonanza. It ' s an ego builder. You think down deep inside that the world hates you and that you ' re inferior to all around. Then you find that there IS someone who cares. He might be the only one within a 100- mile radius; still, he ' s one person who respects you, understands you and helps you. That ' s a friend. I read the other day that a friend of mine lost his life in a car accident. It ' s awfully easy to lose your life, but it ' s awfully hard to lose a friend. Ron Caldwell 143 Each year sees new growth and greater opportunities at A-B Tech, and I am glad that this continues to be true. No viable institution can remain static and ABTI is no exception. As we have moved to make the newly purchased Catholic property truly ours, a master plan has been developed. Long-range educational planning was presented to the State Board of Education in a document prepared under the guidance of the Academic Affairs Committee with involvement of staff, students, and community representatives. The WNC Historial Association was granted a lease for the Smith-McDowel I Home and has developed plans for making it an area cultural center. Institutionally, we have participated in efforts to alleviate unemployment by cooperating with the Manpower Commission in offering special classes. Fernihurst has been utilized for some of these classes, and others have been conducted in leased facilities. All of these things are positive contributions to the community in which you and I live. I hope you are proud of being a part of the Institute and its growth. 144
