Chancellor Jenkins — an alumnus of Eliza- beth City University, the Students ' Chancellor — has awakened in us faith in our University and ourselves, hope for the future, and a strong sense of love and togetherness for our University fam- ily and community. Firm but fair; a hard task master, for himself as well as others; ambitious but not reckless; suc- cessful, yet caring and concerned — Chancellor Jenkins is our role model. 1983-1984 YEARBOOK DEDICATION DR. JIMMY RAYMOND JENKINS, SR. CHANCELLOR CAMPUS LIFE -v: - - ' 1 » ECSU HONORS RETIREES Then said a teacher. Speak to us of Teaching. And he said: No man can reveal to you aught but that which aiready lies half asleep in the dawning of your knowledge. The teacher who walks in the shadow of the temple, among his followers, gives not of his wisdom but rather of his faith and his lovingness. If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind. The astronomer may speak to you of his understanding of space, but he cannot give you his understanding. The musician may sing to you of the rhythm which is in all space, but he cannot give you the ear which arrests the rhythm nor the voice that echoes it. And he who is versed in the science of numbers can tell of the regions weight and measure, but he cannot conduct you thither. For the vision of one man lends not its wings to another. And even as each one of you stands alone in God ' s knowledge, so much each one of you be alone in his knowledge of God and in his understanding of the earth.

Speak to us of Work. And he answered saying: You work that you may keep pace with the earth and the sould of the earth. For to be idle is to become a stranger unto the seasons, and to step out of life ' s procession, that marches in majesty and proud submission towards the infinite. When you work you are a flute through whose heart the whispering of the hours turns to mu- sic. Which of you would be a reed, dumb, and silent, when all else sings together in unison? Always you have been told that work is a curse and labour a misfortune. But I say to you that when you work you fulfil a part of earth ' s furthest dream, assigned to you when that dream was born. And in keeping yourself with labour you are in truth loving life. And to love life through labour is to be intimate with life ' s inmost secret. But if you in your pain call birth an affliction and ttie support of ttie flesti a curse written upon your brow, then I answer that naught but the sweat of your brow shall wash away that which is written. .(, . . 1 1 At • W You have been told also that life is darkness, and in your weari- ness you echo what was said by the weary. And I say that life is indeed darkness save when there is urge. And all urge is blind save when there is knowledge. And all knowledge is vain save when there is work. And all work is empty save when there is love; And when you work with love you bind yourself to yourself, and to one another, and to God. And what is it to work witti love? It is to weave the cloth with threads draw from your heart, even as if your beloved were to wear that cloth. It is to build a house with affection, even as if your beloved were to dwell in that house. It is to sow seeds with tenderness and reap harvest with joy. even as if your beloved were to eat the fruit. It is to charge all things you fashion with a breath of your own spirit And to know that all the blessed dead are standing about you and watching. Often have I heard you say. as if speaking in sleep, " He who worlcs in marble, and finds the shape of his own soul in the stone, is nobbier than he who ploughs the soil. And he who seizes the rainbow to lay it on a cloth in the likeness of man. is more than he who makes the sandals for our feet. " But I say. not in sleep but in the overwakefulness ofnoontied. that the wind speaks not more sweetly to the giant oaks than to the least of all the blades of grass; And he alone is great who turns the voice of the wind into a song made sweeter by his own loving. Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only witti dis- taste, it is better fhiat you stiould leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take aims of those who work with joy. For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half man ' s hunger. And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes, your grudge distils a poision in the wine. And if you sing though as angels, and love not the singing, you muffle man ' s ear to voices of the day and the voices of the night. 40 liliittmtmlmtotummmm ••AMaBk » vM ' nM» " aMw ' la 4 CAMPUS HIGHLIGHTS 41 ECSU REMEMBERS 17 i 42 REV.

T, " " " ytK l; UNIVI AMBAS 1 ksriY 4DORS 1 UNIVERSITY PLAYERS FOUR ONE ACT PLAYS The University Players, ECSU ' s drama organization enjoyed its second success- ful year under ttie leadership of Shawn Smith, director of theatre. Audience attendance increased sharply from pervious seasons, and the press, as well as the public, praised the Players ' productions for their quality, talent, and polish. Growing student interest and involvement, both on stage and off, created a demand for more plays; therefore, four productions were staged throughout the year: a musical comedy (another first for the Players), a Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, and two workshop presentations. % 7f 74 The Players opened their season in November with the rousing mus co Purlie, staged in Moore l aii Auditorium with the cooperation of the Department of Modern Languages and the Department of Music. Band director Wiiiie G. McEi- roy assembied an impressive, fifteen-member orchestra to bacl up the out- standing singing of the piay ' s principai characters and chorus, smoothiy guided byBiily C. l-iines, ECSU ' s choir Director. Shawn Smith ' s direction, sophomore Steph- anie Ailen ' s choreography, and the scenery designed by David Raper rounded out the vatired theatrival elements that made Purlie an audience favorite. According to the Daily Advance review, the musical comedy " ... sliowed outstanding effort on tlie part of ttie actors and ttie musi- cians as it sweiied with good teamwork be- tween ttie two. " A workshop production of Neil Simon ' s The Good Doctor, based on CI iel hov ' s comic stories of 19fh century Russian life, was offered by ttie Players in December. Two performances were staged in the Little Theatre, and a special dinner theatre presentation, sponsored by the Elizabeth City chapter of the National Epicureans, Inc.. was given in the Kermit White Graduate Center. Audi- ences roared with delight and gave special praise to senior Zelene M. Bunch ' s direction and junior Mary J. Knighton ' s period costumes. " If you want to experience the magic of the theatre. " laughed a newspaper critic, " forget the TV and make a call on The Good Doctor. " The comedy was again presented in March to the students at Northeastern High School, and " The Seduction, " one o ' The Good Doctor ' s sto- ries, highlighted the inaugural dinner for Chancel- lor Jimmy R. Jenkins, one of the Players strongest supporters. 77 In February. Charles Gordone ' s No Place To Be Somebody, the first play by a black playwright to win the Pulitzer Prize, served as the Players ' major Spring semester offering. This adult comedy-drama was praised for the strong ensemble work of the seventeen-member cast, headed by Gary Wayne Savage and Kenneth L. Lanier Audiences again filled the Little Theatre for each of the play ' s three performances. 78 79 80 The workshop production of student-directed one-act plays rounded out the Players ' drama season with two per- formances In April. The four short plays Included Tennessee Williams ' Talk To Me Like the Rain, " directed by David Rop- er; Mark Medoff ' s " Doing A Good One For the Red Man. " directed by Marsha Lynn Williams: " The Second-Story Man, " directed by John Gibbs; and Leroy Jones ' " The Toilet, " directed by Richard Forte. 7 7e Four One- Act Plays brought a wealth of new talent to the stage of the Little Theatre: novice and veteran actors combined their skills to create a highly entertaining evening of comedy and drama. The organization of production stage manager Rick L. Jones and the Ingenlousness of technical director David Raper contributed much to the success of the one acts. A family within the Viking family, the University Players brings together students, staff, faculty, and community in mutual efforts of creativity and enjoyment. If all of the world Is a stage, as Shakespeare said, then there can be little doubt that the theatrical stages on the Elizabeth City State University campus are not only alive and well, but continual- ly growing and contributing to the cultural fabric of the school and the community. THE ELIZABETH CITY STATE UNIVERSITY MARCHING VIKING BAND % 3MALL BUT POWERFUL P-O-I-S-O-N Get down baby jam! P-O-l-S-O-N! This is section No. 1, where is section No. 27 The ciarinet section is the best section! We ' re not finish frealdng yet! All of the above are chants which added to the school spirit and morale of the ECSU Marching Viking Band Under th ' e new leadership of Mr Willie G. McElroy, the Marching Vikings were second to none and defeated all who challenged them at any half- time show. They were marvelous! They were daz- zling! They were ' flashy! They were the best! From drills to dance routines, the Marching Vikings captivated all of their audiences. Their half time per- formances were a sign of devotion and hard work. Their excellent performances, both on the field and off, exemplified the unity that is transmitted throughout the organization. Many thought that it could not be done, but nev- er underestimate the powers of a Marching Viking. Norfolk State thought otherwise; North Carolina Central thought otherwise; Winston-Salem thought otherwise also, but the ECSU Marching Viking Band did more than think. The Vikings used their thoughts and perfected them. This enabled them to become the pride of North Carolina and the CIAA confer- " y ' ,VJ £:iiM How grand can one band be?

JIMMY RAYMOND JENKINS, SR. On October 14, 1983, Dr. Jimmy Raymond Jenkins became ttie seventh ctiief executive officer and ttie second ctiancellor of Elizabetti City State University. Dr. Jenldns ' selection by Ttie University of Nortti Caroiina Board of Governors marl ed the first time that this Board has named an Elizabeth City State University chief executive. A 1965 graduate of Elizabeth City State College, Dr. Jenkins returned to his alma mater in 1972 as an assistant professor of biology and Assistant Academic Dean-Administration. Following his promotion to associate professor in 1973, Dr. Jenkins continued his outstanding teaching and administrative service: and in 1977 he became Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty and was promoted to full professor. Prior to his return to Elizabeth City State University, Dr. Jenkins taught general science, biology, and chemistry in several Centre ville, Maryland high schools. During this time, he realized the importance of additional scholarly work and matriculated in the graduate program at Purdue University where he received his M.S. in biology in 1970 and his doctorate in biology education one year later. While at Purdue, Dr. Jenkins served as a teaching assistant, a graduate research assistant, and a supervisor of student teachers. It was as a research assistant that he jointly developed (with Dr. Gerald Krockover) the mini PATT Approach to Individualized Instruction used by thousands of teachers in various applications. Dr. Jenkins did not rest on his laurels after completing his Ph.D. He continued his commitment to the pursuit of excellence in education through his membership in learned societies, educational and professional associations, and through numerous honors and publications. During his distinguished career. Dr. Jenkins has been the recipient of numerous honors and awards. These include memberships in the scholastic honor societies of Alpha Kappa Mu, Phi Delta Kappa, and Beta Beta Beta Biological Society: selection as one of the ' ' Outstanding Personalities of the South " and as one of the ' ' Outstanding Young Men in America " : and a myriad of awards, citations, and certificates for service to Elizabeth City State University. He also served as a church trustee and is a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. Dr. Jenkins is the son of Mrs. Alma Jenkins and the late Willie Jenkins of Selma, North Carolina. He is married to the former Faleese Moore, a 1966 graduate of Elizabeth City State College, of Darden, North Carolina. Dr. and Mrs. Jenkins are the parents of three children, Lisa, Ginger, and Jimmy Raymond, Jr. 115 ALUMNI RECEPTION ' THIS IS YOUR LIFE ' ' 116 RECITALS, CHORAL CONCERT, AND ART SHOW 118 TO THE EDITOR AND STAFF OF THE 1984 VIKING AND TO THE CLASS OF ' 84: cannot express fully the honor I feel by your dedicating this edition of the Viking to my Inauguration. Thank youl My family and I shall always cherish this special document. My thanks also go to all students who truly used their days and years at Elizabeth City State University to make of themselves persons eminently better able to serve Man in the name of God. My renowned and lamented predecessor — the late Chancellor Marion Dennis Thorpe, under whos administration you began your journey through this institution — would be very happy that you gave your best to your undergraduate education; and no less, so am II Beiing Chancellor of ECSU still has newness forme; the daily pressures of even a short tenure in office relentessly remind me of my new service role-one in stark contrast to my times as an ECSU Freshman. In those days, I lived in a campus building which no longer exists: a Quonset hut called " West Lodge. " In those times, my classmates and I often focussed on such lofty concerns as the cafeteria food (and as you know, ancient student tradition says that such cuisine has been simply awful since the first cafeteria opened on the first campus). It is an entirely different ballgame now. Not only was I installed as Chief Executive Officer, but more significantly for me, I was honored with the title, " Students ' Chancellor " That welcome but heavy responsibility reinforces my aim to provide the very best learning-living environment of which my colleagues and I are capable. That golden opportunity is summa- rized by our Freshman Candlelighting Service, which exhorts students to be " Bearers of Light, " for only in this way with students as the Bearers of Light, will the institution become a brilliant " Light, " in itself For this to hap pen, there are some other circumstances which must prevail: all must help ECSU to become a trailbrazer, especially for this section of our State; to become a paceset- ter and provider of expertise; to provide solutions and perhaps even invent problems so their solutions are ready when needed. All personnel of this University must unite in a mission to dispel darkness and ignorance. Alumni must turn their flame of loyalty into a blazing torch whose light illuminates shadows wherever they may be. Every campus activity must comple- ment the aim of providing rich, vital educational experiences. As Chancellor, I must seek maximum enhancement of your and my Alma Mater as, together, we forge an institution serving as a laser beam which destroys the night apathy, animosity, ignorance and inepti- tude. In this way shall your light and mine " so shine before men. " This is my message to you. Mrs. Jenkins and I join in our prayers that each of you, through having been at ECSU, will have a life marked by happiness, good health, prosperity, and rewarding service to your fellow human beings.

My name is Cornelia Y. Combs. I am an advanced Sophomore major- ing in Computer Science. My sign is Pisces. I am a native of Elizabett) City. Nortti Carolina and I graduated from Norttieastern High School in 1983. As you know, I am a member of this year ' s Viking staff. I am the manager of the underclassmen and senior section of the yearbook. I have enjoyed working with The Viicing and I do hope that you enjoy looking through the pages of it as well After getting my Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science, I plan to go to graduate school with the Viking love, Cornelia Yvette Combs Cornelia Yvette Combs J Rick L. ones Greetings Vikings, My name is ffick L. Jones and the position I undertook on The Vilcing staff was that of Advertising Manager. I am a senior English News Media major and a native of New Bern. North Carolina. The position I held gave me much pride, but most of all, confidence to be tenacious to overcome numerous obstacles that are set before me. And, in overcoming these obstacles, I have acquired valuable kno wiedge that will enable me to be successful in allot my endeavors. Upon ending. I would like to express my embrace of empathetic appreciation to Dr. Anne Henderson. Ms. Robin Beamon. Mrs. Carol C Jones. Mr Bernard Peterson. Mr. Shawn Smith.

For those who may not know me, I am Bill Parson. This year I had the priviledge of serving as the photographer to - The Vilcing. in holding this posi- tion, much was learned about myself, our university, and other facets of life. As the yearbook photog- rapher. I strived to produce quality pictures. The pictures throughout this edition repre- sent lots of effort by me to produce the best for you. I truly hope that the fond memories captured in this edition will be a part of your life always. The Camera Man, Bill Parson Tannmye Jones Well Hello Vikings. A native of Kinston. North Carolina, I am an English News Media major. By the way , my name is Tammye Jones and I served as Sports Editor for this year ' s yearbook. A lot of turf is covered when it comes down to organizing a sports section of a yearbook. From ballgame to ballgame, I have enjoyed gathering the necessary items needed to complete the section assigned to me. In addition, I would like to thank those who contributed in any way to this section. Let ' s go Vikings! Sincerely, Tammye Jones Bill Parson 215 Exactly where do I begin? Producing a yearbool of any quaiify is not an easy tasl . There is an abundance of hard worl . The long tedious hours spent on preparing lay-outs, developing pictures, and numerous other things are among the foundation stages of a yearbook. During these production stages, an idea of the final product can be envisioned. Now that this edition of The Viking is published, I feel as though I shall miss working with it as Editor-in-Chief. This book has meant so much tome that it has become a part of my life. In working withJhe Viking, I have gained knowledge, and acquired experience and other qualities needed for survival in reality. In addition, it has contributed immensely to my social life. In having the title, ' Editor-in-Chief " I have come in contact with many interesting individuals. Doors have been open that were not already standing ajar. The exposure which ac- companied the title has definitely been an asset to the maturing process of my life. Like any other Editor, I experienced moments of joy and sadness. I learned to deal with those who felt as though my job were petty and insignificant. I appreciat- ed those who respected me for who I was, Algie H. Mabry, Jr. — Editor-in-Chief of The Viking. focused on the type of book I wanted to produce; I dreamed of publishing one of the best books ever I sf rived to make a liar out of the so many who said that this edition would not be up to par. I believe that I have accomplished my goal. The many headaches, argue- ments, sleepless nights, and other states of anxiety which I encountered have been uncountible. But I survived I Thanking people who have been very helpful throughout the production course of this yearbook is something that I must do. Without such fine people as Tammye Jones, Yvette Combs, Ricky Jones and Bill Parson, none of this glory and splender would be possible. Two special photog- raphers, Mrs. Diana Gardner and Mr. Pe- dro Holley, stepped in and were there whenever I needed them. A special thank you goes out to our yearbook ad- visor. It is Dr. Anne Henderson who saw to it that my deadlines were met and insist- ed that everything be perfect. I cannot go any further without thank- ing my parents, sister, and other family members who have stuck by me since February 28, 1963 and especially since my first day here at ECSU. There are many others that I am so grateful to, but I find it impossible to name them one by one. One particular individual, among the latter, has given me joy in times of sorrow when I felt as though this book were impossible. Love can substain any hardship! I cannot finish without extending thanks to the man who made all of this possible, my Saviour. From my thoughts, my pad, my pen. 216 217 HOW DO I SAY GOODBYE TO WHAT WE ' VE HAD THE GOOD TIMES THAT MADE US LAUGH OUTWEIGHED THE BAD.
