Jenkins A review of the history of ECSU reveals that this university has always produced a high calibre graduate. Our graduates have been able to take their places in their respective chosen professions and demonstrate their skills and proficiencies. The record is replete with our graduates who have become " Teachers of the Year " , " Citizens of the Year " , lawyers, medical doctors, high level political leaders, and top educators (this list could go on and on). There is, however, a serious threat to the continuation of this success record appearing on the horizon, of selecting who shall be given the opportunity to demonstrate acquire new skills. The threat being identified here is the National Standized Test Program. I refer to the National Standardized Test Program as a threat because a review of the history of black people reveals that we simply do not perform well on national standardized tests. The conflict is, these tests supposedly serve as predictors of success of the applicants to perform well on national standardized tests. The conflict is these tests supposedly serve as predictors of success of black people in the real life working situation. However, since it appears that national standar- dized tests are here to stay and since we are committed to providing our graduates with equal access to immediate jobs, graduate schools, and professional schools, we must break the syndrome that has been historic with our people, of perfor- ming below the national norm on such tests. Our graduates will, according to their chosen vocation be exposed to such tests as the NTE, GRE, LSA T, MCA T, and Miller Analogies, to name a few. We recognize that more and more, they must cross these hurdles (successfully performing on these tests), before they will be given an opportunity to participate in whatever program they are applying. No matter how proficient they might be once they are on the job, these tests could prevent them from ever having the opportunity to demonstrate their abilities. Our " ECSU, Testing For Excellence " Program is, therefore, an effort to continue to do all of the fine things we have been doing historically, while also ensuring that our students will, in fact, successfully cross the hurdles mentioned above upon graduation from this institution and as they seek post-graduate opportunities. This means that our classroom procedures will change, our regular class testing methodologies will change, and other procedures that we employ will change. However, the ultimate success or failure of our program will depend upon the performance of our students on national standardized tests. DEDICATION Mrs. Katie S. Wamack On behalf of the Student Affairs Division, I am very pleased to express our appreciation for the years of dedicated service that Mrs. Katie Wamack has rendered to Elizabeth City State University. She has always been sincere, loyal and concerned about the welfare of the total university. No matter how early in the morning or how late at night her services were need- ed, Mrs. Wamack was there! I will repeat what Dr. Thorpe, the Chancellor, has said on many occasions in reference to Mrs. Wamack, " we can fill the position but we will never be able to replace the person. " Mrs. Wamack, we sincerely thank you! Dr. Eloise B. Norton Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs x x x There is only one man in the world and his name is All Men. There is only one woman in the world and her name is All Woman. There is only one child in the world and the child ' s name is All Children. Carl Sandburg DEMONSTRATION . . .

The voice is mute and stilled the heart. That loved us well and true. Ah, bitter was the trail to part From one so good as you. You are not forgotten loved one Nor will you ever be. As long as life and memory last We will remember thee. We miss you now, our hearts are sore, As time goes by we miss you more. Your loving smile, your gentle face, No one can fill your vacant place. t4 ,MEMORIAL 12 13 ededication Of Q. R. Little Library It was said on this day that: " We rededicate this building, the G. R.

I ' ll remember December for it ' s the time of year when the " Star of David " shines bright across the star glittered sky, to mark the birth of the one person that would eventually win the heart of an ambitious, strong-willed " Blackman " such as " I " !!! I ' ll recall the moment we met, I ' ll even bet that the smile you bore, will still be ever present. Expanding far beyond the limits of the happiness that was felt in our hearts when we are together, " But " somehow apart.

Kahil Gibran 324 ►?w AS Is A 325 ih AfitaeaUd||«in«AU J The 1978-1979 VIKING was published by the Yearbook Staff at Elizabeth City State University. Printing was done by INTER- COLLEGIATE PRESS, located in Shawnee Mission, Kansas. The copy is Century Schoolbook Italic. Point size is 8 point to 60 point. The paper is Baskerville I. The cover, manufactured by ICP, is Special Hot Stamp with French Line grain and custom designed. The books are trimmed to 9 x 12 inches. Again special thanks to Mr. Robert Lawson, out of Durham, NC, for his guidance in the production of the ' 79 VIKING. We would also like to thank INTER-COLLEGIATE PRESS for their hospitality when we visited the plant in November of 1978. A r ' 326 GREETINGS FROM THE EDITOR Our Viking staff is organized with dependable and responsible students. Without these factors the 1978-1979 Viking yearbook would not have been a success. The Viking yearbook is a very young and growing product of Elizabeth City State University. We, the Viking yearbook staff, are striving to make each edition a cherishable treasure filled with memories of ECSU. The main goal of the staff is " perfection " . Each edition of the Viking yearbook is more diversified in its content. The 1978 edition is no exception. We, the Viking staff, have attempted to produce our annual that highlights the events of this year. As Editor-in-Chief, my sole responsibility is organizing, directing and coordinating the production of the yearbook. I was born on September 9, 1958. Later in my adventurous life, I was graduated from Hugh M. Cummings III High School in Burlington, NC. A junior Early Childhood Education major, I entered Elizabeth City State University in the fall of 1976. At birth I was given the name Katrina Denise Burton, however, for various reasons became known as " Trina " . While attending ECSU, I have become active in several campus organizations. Among them are: Layout Editor of the yearbook, Editor-in-Chief of the yearbook, a member of the Concert Band and a member of the cluster program com- mittee. My parents, Mr. Mrs. Bowman K. Burton, have inspired me to strive hard for the many things that I want in life. I thank them for their encouragement and supportiveness of me during the 21 years of my life. In closing, I would like to send my special thanks to the following people for their cooperation: Ms. Debra L. Campbell — Yearbook Advisor Mr. Jerome H. Fitch — Director of Student Activities Dr. Eloise B. Horton — Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Mr. Robert Lawson — Yearbook Representative Sincerely yours, j(aZzc - J J , a - ' C Scc Jr 0 Katrina D.
