 Volume 70 Elwood Community High School North 19th Street Elwood, Indiana 46036 Let’s Get Carried Away! Now this Panther has got some class. The 1986 Crescent staff is proud to present to you Frank the Panther. Frank will guide all readers through the yearbook. Frank symbolizes the carried away theme which is used in this book. To help Frank out he has invited members of his family and also close friends to appear in the yearbook. Frank guarantees that this yearbook is full of fun and excitement. Opcning lGetting carried away during class, sophomores J.C. Wright, Paul Shrock, and freshman Chris Arbucklc show that they arc not camera shy. Faculty member. Mrs. Parker smiles big for the camera while being dressed up as a mouse on Halloween. A few members of the Senior Powder Puff Football team show how-carried away they can get. Pictured are Jobi Blackford, Stacey Rickabaugh, Christy Decker, Lori Bennett, Marsha Burdette, and Ann Thornberry. 2 ThemeCo Ahead Do It . . . Get Carried Away Getting carried away, senior Terril Wolfe shows off for the camera. Let’s go crazy, let’s get nuts, let’s get carried away and have some fun. Getting crazy means different things to everyone; however, no matter how you do it; it is what you enjoy doing and that is all that counts. The 1986 Crescent symbolizes fun, originality, and the craziness in life. So go ahead do it, get carried away. School seems to be at the same pace all the time. Students get up in the morning, go to school all day, and go home with homework that will take up the three hours to do. Some students feel like, "Homework! Homework! Give me a break!” That is why it is time to get carried away. "Let’s get carried” away represents the fun in life, it takes away the same ordinary pace and adds some "pizzaz” in the life of the students. There is nothing wrong with getting carried away, so why not try it? ECHS students got carried away exclusively different from any other school. This year the Mighty Panther football team got carried away by having the best season ever. Students got carried away by supporting the sports teams as much as possible. Also, who could forget the people who really got carried away on Halloween? The teachers showed how they could get carried away by dressing up in the best outfits that they could put together. Yet, one always wonders what the Seniors will be doing next to get carried away. "Never trust a smiling cat,” a famous quote by that famous cat Garfield seems to also apply to EHS; however, it should be never trust a smiling student. Why should you never trust a smiling student? Because that smile can mean only one thing, they’re on the verge of getting carried away. You can never predict what a student at EHS will do next. Some people seem to be getting carried aw'ay in the wrong way. Vandals shot out windows in the front of the high school. This caused alot of people to be furious and very upset. It’s okay to get carried away, but doing it in a manner that can hurt somebody is not the right way to do it. 108b • Table Of Contents • 108b Student Life ............................Page 4 People .................................

Everybody needs a thrill on a Friday night. Students at ECHS can be found having fun no matter where they are. Football games arc just one place for people to have fun. 4 Division PageStudent Life Gets Carried Away! Student Life at EHS is in a class all by itself. Nothing can top the lifestyles of the students at EHS. Student Life is made up of the various activities that take place in or out of school. Homecoming, Prom, Nite Life, and Variety Show are just a small part of the Student Life. Student Life is the chance for everyone to get involved. However, the Student Life at EHS could never be exciting if nobody ever got carried away. Getting carried away with Student Life can make the school year alot of fun. That’s right, fun and everybody loves fun! School would be boring if there was never any fun. Students need to get involved in more of the activities of EHS. These activities help students escape the Taking over the scorcbox during the powder puff football game. Matt Conner, senior, Ray Holliday, senior. Trent Hicks, junior. Billy Yates, senior, and J.C. Wright, sophomore show that they got what it takes to be announcers. regular school pace. This year students got a chance to get carried away with Student Life by participating in Puttin’ on the Hits sponsored by Spanish Club and Student Council. The Honors and Thespians also get a chance to get carried away by being extras in the movie "Hoosiers”. The juniors got a chance to put together a prom, while the whole school saw how carried away the seniors could get on GRADUATION DAY! Student Life is an essential part of school. Student Life adds a variety to the demands of school. Students and even teachers make the life at EHS interesting. Being involved in the activities of school, students got a chance to meet new people or got the chance to know each other better. Who else is better to get carried away with than a friend?

Student Life 5OUR SCHOOL SPIRIT SHINES Just what is it when people get carried away with spirit? We tend to think of school as a lot of hard work; on the other hand, during spirit week we see all these people really getting crazy. In the halls of ECHS you can see anything from a punk rocker to someone decked out in shorts during the chilly weather. Now you must admit that these people seem to be getting carried away with spirit. So just what is school spirit? Heather VanNess, sophomore, stated, "School spirit is when everyone gets involved and people go to the games.” Senior, Kim Werline, feels, "School spirit is when the student body participates w ith any kind of activity because they want to — not because they have to.” "Showing the teams we’re proud of them.” — Amy Scott On the first day of school the cheerleaders were allowed to hold a pep session. Each squad did a cheer for the student body. As usual, the frosh cheerleaders messed up because they were embarrassed. The pep session got the school spirit on the right track and ever since it has been growing steadily. The football team got really carried away with their school spirit by eating raw meat before the Elwood-Tiptin game. Before the second game of the sectional against Yorktown, Coach Hughes challenged the fans. He lost his challenge since fifty-eight people signed up for the fan bus. Coach Hughes ended up with pies in his face during the pep session from the senior players. The Panther band also showed spirit by helping the cheerleaders cheer at the home football games. Yes, ECHS does have spirit. It has been hidden away for along time. However, this year school spirit has gotten just a little carried away. Junior, Donald Lamb seems to be surprised as one of our photographers takes his picture during punk day. Sophomores show their spirit as they ride in their decorated truck during the Homecoming parade. 6 Studcnt LifeCarried Away With Spirit 7 Senior. Jeff Lynas and sophomore.

That's what Donald Lamb and Mike Edwards seem to be saying during Punk Out Day during spirit week. Showing his school spirit during punk day, sopho-more Scott Barnes poses for one of our photographers.NITE TIME IS the right time! "Ring!” The sound of the bell that ends the seventh hour blues on Friday afternoon is also the signal for Nite Life to begin. Students rush home to eat and get ready for the Friday night game. After the game some students go to Italian Village for pizza, to be with their friends, and to celebrate a victory; however, other people ce-lebrte a victory by cruising with their friends. But then again some students decide just to go home. The Nite Life varies for the students at ECHS. Lets see! "We don’t succeed unless we have fun try- ing. — Kristin McQuitty Getting together with your friends on the weekends can be a highlight of anyone’s Nite Life. Tina Lovell stated, "My Nite Life usually consists of going to Italian Village after the games and then having a friend stay over or vise versa.” Stacey Rickabaugh commented, "I like to stay over with my friends, go to the ballgames, ride around, and yell at all the good looking guys!” "Having Chinese fire drills with Mrs. Scharff, Marianne Perez, and the other cheerleaders is how I get carried away with my Nite Life,” stated Kim Werline. Usually on Friday night the Nite Life is at Italian Village. One tends to wonder how the employees feel about all of this excitement. One employee commented that it is like trying to feed fifty elephants on one peanut; however, they do enjoy the crowd. After the exciting weekend, it’s back to good ole Monday! Lynne Fcitig and Shane Wolf arc enjoying the Nile Life after one of the home football games at Circle Pizza’s Italian Village. This is a popular place to be after a home ballgamc. Enjoying the night out! Gabe Garner and Kevin Upde-graff arc taking time out to grab a bite to eat after one of the Panther football victories. 8 Student LifeTaking a rime-out from eating are Lori Downham, Dean Barnes. Larry Gihson, and Kevin Vf'erline. These four students are having fun at Circle Pizza after a home football game. The best way to have a good time and to get crazy is to be with your friends. This is what Heather VanNcss and Angela Higgins seem to do with their Nite Life. There is always a new and interesting way to eat food. Kevin Wcrlinc demonstrates this by getting carried away with his breadsticks. Relaxing and taking it easy while they watch their other friends get carried away w ith Nite Life are Tom Holliday. Susan Jones, and Greg Zink. Nite Life 9PROUD AS A PANTHER Elwood Prevails The weather was perfect for winning the 1985 Homecoming game. The Panthers defeated the Bruins 21-0. This win has to be a memorable event for Coach Hughes, since this was his first Homecoming as the head coach for the Panthers. Homecoming was different this year. There was still the parade and a powder puff game, but instead of being on Saturday as it traditionally has been in the past, the homecoming game took place on Friday night. Everyone seemed to adjust quite well to the change. Mike Linder, senior, was picked by Student Council as the parade marshal. Thursday night before the homecoming game, the junior and senior girls challenged each other in fheir annual powder puff football game. The juniors were overwhelmed by the seniors, 22-12. During half time of the powder puff game, Larry Gibson was crowned king. Vying for the title also were Jim Beecher, Steve Helpling, Cliff Hoskins, and Demetri Pappas. Those who oppose will fall — Cliff Hoskins Tension reached its peak as the awaited announcement came closer. The crowd grew silent. The silence broke when Kim Werline was announced as the 1985 Homecoming queen. "When I heard my name announced I was so surprised and excited,” stated Kim. The queens court consisted of Jill Champion, Christy Decker, Marianne Perez and Stacey Rickabaugh. Mrs. Merritt was asked to name just one highlight of the homecoming activities. She responded with, "The crowning of the queen had to be one; the band’s new uniforms and the parade were a few others.” The senior class nominated the following Homecoming queen candidates for 1985: Christy Decker, Stacey Rickabaugh, Kim Werline, queen, Jill Champion, and Marianne Perez. Kim was crowned during half-time of the Homecoming game. The mighty Elwood Panther offense is in their stance ready to outscore the Blackford County Bruins. The victorious score was 21 to 0. 10 Studcnt LifeAfter the Panthers beat the Bruins, a Homecoming dance was held in the ECHS cafeteria. Tracy May. Brian Frazier, Gina Hoffer, and Marc Bastian are four friends having a fun time together. Chuck Hoover 11 and Tony Hoover 31 were a big part of the Elwood Panthers this year. Chuck made a diving interception to help beat the Bruins. Chuck is a very active Panther who is very competitive and aggressive. He has played offense, defense and caught the most passes all year. Christy Pedro. Elwood's 1984 Homecoming queen, crowned Kim Werline queen during the Homecoming football game. Kim’s escort was her father. Senior, Cliff Hoskins will be missed next year by the Panthers. Cliff did a good job on defense this season. Homecoming 11e I WOOD AST SHINES Advanced Creativity "Hand me some paint!" This is one of the sounds supergraphic students may make while painting on a building or large surface. Supergraphics is very similar to a regular art class. To be in this class a student has to make an average of A’s and B’s and must have attended an art class for two semesters. Elwood has had this class for three years, and it's a very popular class for students with artistic talents. Supergraphics is large scale art. Students paint large areas around Elwood that have "Super Graphics is lots of fun!’ — Shawn VanNess. no designs. They paint different designs on each. What’s the difference between super-graphics and an art class? A supergraphics class is a group of selected students who must be responsible, capable, and cooperative. An art class is students who signed up for the class. Mrs. McQuitty stated, "Yes, it’s art but the nature is different." Mrs. McQuitty enjoys teaching the supergraphics class. The most recent example of work done by supergraphics is on the wall in the woods room. The oldest painting is on the Washington School lunchroom wall. Also, are the big paintings on the walls in the gym and halls. When asking students what they enjoyed about the class students said "This class is the best class we’ve taken.” Others say they like the class because they like going different places to paint. "I like the class because it’s not like a regular art class where you paint on paper; you get to paint on large surfaces,” remarked a supergraphics student. Three art students, Jeff Whitingcr, Eric Stewart, and Cecil Davis painted Cafetorium on the cafeteria’s south wall. This was done during the 1983-84 school year. The Panther wrestling design in the wrestling room was done by a few of Mrs. McQuitty’s art students. This adds much class and spirit for our Panther Wrestlers. 12 Studcnt LifeShown here is Mrs. McQuitty giving Carmen Headley a few helpful pointers. Carmen is working on a design in the woods room. The Elwood Mural was designed and completed by the supergraphics class during the 1984-85 school year. We are all proud of this fine art. Another fine art work is located on the side of a building in downtown Elwood. The supcrgraphics class also did this to give Elwood a touch of art. Supergraphics 13LOCKERS SHOW CLASS — PIZAAZff The lockers in (he halls of ECHS show a variety of different personalities. By looking at any student's locker you can tell the lifestyle in which they live. Lockers are a part of the student life at ECHS. Sophomore, Candi Morriset's locker reflects her crazy life. When opening her locker you will find a mess along with crazy posters about school, and her boyfriend’s name everywhere. When Candi was asked why she chose to decorate her locker in this way she stated, "I didn’t really choose a way; I just threwr things in as I collected them and that’s me.” Of course not all lockers are decorated. Some lockers are boring; hut then again that may reflect the owner’s personalities. Seniors, Kim Werline and Larry Gibson’s lockers reflect their busy lifestyle. Kim and Larry are very active in school. Their activities are jammed into their time schedule, like their books being jammed "Lockers give each student a chance to reflect their own personality.” — Kim Werline into their locker. If lockers reflect your personality then what can we say about the guys locker room. Because students are in school almost eight hours, five days a week, the students’ lockers become a part of them. The lockers reflect their personalities and individual tastes. Because of these reasons, lockers are more than just a place to put books. Amy Noone is an active person and this can be reflected by looking at her locker. You can find a variety of things in Amy’s locker, including pictures of her and her boyfriend, an attractive mural of pictures, clippings, and posters about everything, everyone, and everywhere. It has been found that lockers reflect the personality of their owners. Through the halls of ECHS many personalities are reflected. They vary from exciting and crazy to boring and dull. This locker shows how Heather VanNcss, sophomore. is infatuated with guys. 14 Student LifeThe love for guys is brought out in this highly decorated locker of senior, Tash McDaniels. Locker Personalities 15SPIRIT FLOWS THROUGH ELWOOl Hometown Pride "Two hits, four bits, six hits a dollar! All for Elwood stand up and hollar. Yea, Rah, Elwood!” Many times this year this cheer could be heard roaring through the crowd. Elwood is steadily rising to the top; however with the students, fans, and parents of Elwood, Elwood is already there! The Elwood Community is very proud of the people who make it! This year Elwood is rising to the top in many areas! Our mighty football team has made us all very proud. They’ve been one of the major causes for people getting "carried away!" After the last C.I.C. game against Missisnewa the whole team and fans got "carried away!” The police gave the two team buses a police escort back into town. Everybody in the buses were 'Dynamite comes in small packages,” — Lisa Chriss hanging out the windows yelling cheers and shouting "We’re number one!” A pickup truck full of students shouting, yelling and getting "carried away!” followed behind. When the parade of people arrived at the high school a whole crowd of people began hugging them and cheering the team for their victory. "Getting carried away” is what many students of Elwood love to do most! When asked, "What was your favorite time when you got carried away with your friends?” Tina Lovell responded "Well, one time Candi, Kim, and I went to Circle and packed twelve people in her little Chevette and went riding the "L” with everyone hanging out the windows! It was a real blast!” No matter where they are the students of Elwood really get "carried away” in their own way! Freshmen Matt Hankley. Gabe Garner, and Kevin Wcrlinc arc shown sitting on top of the pop machine in front of Bob’s Auto Parts. Junior, Melissa Brewer poses for a picture on the bridge in EGHS’s nature center.

Carried Away With Elwood 17OVERSEAS TO ECHS Welcome!! Do you like it here? This is the question most often asked of our Foreign exchange students. The usual answer was ’'Yep, because it is different”. The five foreign exchange students in the Elwood Community area were Anita Teigstad, Morten Christensen, Terttu Niskamen, Kirsten Geisell-brecht and Elvis Pellar. Talking to the exchange students wasn’t as easy as everyone thought it would he. The exchange students didn’t understand the American slang that is used. Being an exchange student and coming to America is a privelege. It’s a privilege to learn about other countries and the way the people live. It also takes a lot of stamina to go across the world to live with a new family in a city one doesn’t even know. Having to meet new friends isn’t a problem for students from another country. EHS students were magnetized by the exchange students foreign accents and personalities. Anita Teigstad is from the country of Norway; she stayed with David and Kathy Jones along with sister Susan, and brother, Chris. She enjoyed doing new things around Elwood such as roller skating. She found the lay-away plan at K-Mart fascinating. ”1 would have done better if Shelly wouldn’t have knocked me down so much.” Stated Anita after a roller skating experince. Anita liked "Amerikka”. Morten Christensen is from the country of Denmark. He is staying with the Coles — Beth, Jim and Margorie. Morten was a great help for the Panther Football Team, who did so well this last season. He likes America, hut feels one cannot compare two countries with two different lifestyles. "The way Americans ear and live arc truly different,” Stated Morten. It’s neat to experience things from different countries,” he added. Morton has learned a lot but most of all he has learned two worlds. To him our world is totally "awesome”. Terttu Niskanen, also known as Tepa, is from the country of Finland. She lived with the Watson family. Her family members include Earl, Gretchen, and their daughter Trish. What Tepa likes most about America are the little report cards and the delicious food. "I like every kind of food except peanut butter,” said Tepa. Kirsten Greisselbrccht is from Germany. She lived with Fred and Joanna Tyner. Fred Tyner is the area representative for the Youth For Understanding Program, which places foreign exchange students with families in this area. Kirsten likes the way Americans do more with their families. "I like how the Americans are supportive of their school and most of their country,” stated Kirsten. Kirsten was a photographer on the Crescent Staff during her stay in Elwood. Elvis Pellar is from the French part of Switzerland. He lived with the Whistlers and his American sister, Martha. Elvis liked the 1950’s cars and the myths about American rock-n-roll. "The biggest difference, ” he said "is the ideas about the other countries. Each country has another idea about each country. ” Elvis enjoyed his stay in America. WORKING HARD AT YFUff Enjoying being around kids and going to the activities that they are involved in, is just one reason why Mr. and Mrs. Fred Tyner are involved in the Youth Foreign Understanding Program. Mr. Tyner is area representative for YFU program. Mr. Tyner places foreign exchange students in homes with families in Elwood and surrounding cities. The Tyners themselves also sponsor an exchange student and enjoy it very much. They began this in 1976. Mr. Tyner feels his family has learned a lot from the exchange students that have lived with them but their way of life is almost like ours. 18 Foreign Exchange StudentsThis is Elvis; he has jusi finished a hard game of basketball.

The cast and crew practiced six weeks before the actual play performance. The audience thought the play went extremely well, and they really liked the graveyard scene. "Our Town” seemed to be a very moving play and the moral was to appreciate life; the ordinary days are miracles. The acting of Scott Barnes (George "The talent of the actors and actresses will improve with each new play they do.” — Mrs. Herndon Gibbs) and Susanjones (Rebeccca Gibbs) was enjoyed, and all the scenes were well performed. Mrs. Herndon, the Thespian Club Sponsor, thought the play went great with all the hard work and talented thespi-ans. After the first successful play another was to be chosen for the spring play. Several plays were looked over and the thespi-ans were ready to start again. The cooperation was excellent. All the thespians participated in setting up and tearing down. The next play looked very optimistic. Practices went through May 10, the day of the play. Practice, practice, practice helped the spring play go smoothly. On May 10, 1986 at 7:30 P.M. in the Elwood Cafetorium "Anne Frank” was performed by the Elwood Thespians. The crowd really enjoyed this play. The play was a very moving one that touched the hearts of the audience. The main roles were well acted along with all other roles. The play went smoothly and the thespians were real excited about it. Mrs. Herndon directed this play with much extra help with set-up, practices, the play, and tear down. Four F.lwood actresses perform a scene from "Anne Frank”.

The theme was centered around the reviving of the statue of Liberty and our country. These two spectacular evenings proved to the community that inside the walls of ECHS are some super talents. "Liberty Spectacular” makes the list of one of the best productions by our music students,” said Miss Simmons. Miss Simmons was the director of the variety show and responsible for the shows success. The show was opened with a fanfare by Brian Hunt and Pam Goins. The band then joined in with their selection of "Totem "This Years Show Had A Personal Quality."

The other featured solo was "Somewhere” by senior Jeff Murray. The corp joined the band in the selections "CanCan”, Strutt”, and "Sweet Georgia Brown.” The stage band did an excellent job in the gym w'ith rhythm in their numbers "Shaker Song”, "Bandstand Boogie.” The choir sang their version of the popular song "That’s What Friends Are For” and then followed with "Rocky Top” ending the night with "Autumn Canticle” and "The Way You Look Tonight” in formal wear. "This year’s show had a personal quality that brought our audience close to the performers. You could sense the emotion between the cast and audience throughout the show,” said Miss Simmons. Pictured at the top is ECHS’s spectacular choral company. The choral company is shown as they performed the number “The Way You Look Tonight".

This was one of the best liked numbers in Liberty Spectacular. Senior Pam Goins sang "Friends are Friends Forever” in Liberty Spectacular. Pam dedicated this special number to her fellow band seniors. Variety Show 23CLIMB OUR STAIRWAY For A Night In Heaven! "Stairway to Heaven” was the theme for the Junior-Senior Prom which was held on May 17, 1986. Members of the junior class, along with Mrs. Austin, the junior class sponsor, worked extra hard to make this a memorable evening. The theme was carried out by turning the entrance hallway into a "Stairway to heaven.” "I never thought our cafetorium could look so nice. The juniors did a great job,” commented Lisa Knotts. Those who attended the prom elected Mike Linder as our 1986 Prom King and Tricia Grimes as our 1986 Prom Queen. Others vowing for the title were Leah Richwine, Anita Teigstad, Kristi Fettig, Angie Melvin, Morten Christensen, Jeff Lynas, Shane Wolff, and Bill Yates.

The juniors did a spectacular job turning the E.C.H.S. cafetorium into an image of heaven. "The 1986 Prom was one of the most beautiful proms held in the past few years. The students were so well behaved and seemed to enjoy the prom very much. The students and the surroundings made the 1986 Prom very special and a wonderful memory,” commented Mrs. Austin.

Sophomore Tim Faulstick's art talent is shown through this picture that he drew in art class. Many of the art students have had their work displayed in the yearbook. Without the use of art work from the students the yearbook would not have the "Carried Away With Art" look that it has. Getting carried away is how the student body at ECHS coped with the long hours of homework, seven period days, and anything else that made school seem like a drag at times. The students at ECHS put fun into the school days and when it was time to get carried away no one ever missed out on the excitement. Students were not the only ones who liked to get carried away throughout the school year. The teachers put some fun into the school year by dressing up at Halloween and having the students vote on which teacher they liked best. This seemed to be a lot of fun for both the students and the teachers. So get carried away and turn the page. Oh no, not another one of those days!! Matt John, junior, seems to be having a bad day while he is working in the library. It appears that Matt has dropped all the books that he was to put on the shelves.

The Elwood Library has many things to offer to the community. There is a wide variety of books to choose from and every summer the library sponsors the summer reading club for children. Not only does the lilbrary stand up to importance because of the knowledge from books that it holds, but also from the beauty the building holds itself. This building is a compliment to its city and the other building around it. The city of Elwood and its citizens should be proud of the library. T In Memory . . . Raymond Huffman was born on April 14, 1968 and passed away on October 5, 1985. His teachers said that he was a very good worker that liked to be on his own. They also described him as a very loyal person. He was a very nice boy. and was good to people. He loved coming to school just to be around them. Raymond’s hobbies were music and entertainment. His idol was Elvis Presely. Raymond himself often entertained the school by being in variety shows and singing in the choir. Raymond is often thought of by his friends and fellow students at ECHS. Sadly missed by her fellow classmates of 1986 is Cindy Neese. She was born on February 10, 1968, and she died in August 1984. Cindy’s parents are Byron and Laura Neese. Cindy-attended kindergarten at South Elwood and went to Edgewood Elementary School. She attended Elwood Jr. High School and completed two years at Elwood Community High School. Cindy was very interested in the business curriculum with math being her favorite subject and social studies being her least favorite. She worked as a pioneer, attended the Zion Chapel, and liked listening to music. Cindy was best described by her friends as nice, quiet, and very pleasant to be around. Shawn Courtney was the son of Rex and Ramona Courtney. He was born on September 20, 1968, and he died on November 7, 1984. As a kindergartener he attended South Elwood. For grades one through six he went to Oakland Elementary, and then, he went on to Elwood Jr. High School. Shawn attended almost a year and a half at Elwood Community High School. Shawn enjoyed entertaining other students and having fun. He was described as a "character,” but inside he was a very warm and capable person. Shawn’s favorite hobby was camping. He loved nature, and he loved doing things outdoors. 39Allen, Crista Alexander, Kathleen Amick, Edward Ball, Brian Ball, Dawn Barnett, Lori Bastian, Marc Beeman, Mike Beeman, Samantha Beeman, Scott Boll, Lisa Boll, Richard Bowyer, Samantha Boyland, Robby Brannen, Clayton Brewer, Melissa Cannon, Jerry Carter, Paul Casto, Lori Casto, Mary Chestnut, Jerry Childress, Everett Clymer, Tracy Collins, Angela JUNIOR CLASS STEERING COMMITTEE — Row 1: Tracy May.

The parents of Dino Balser donated the use of their truck for the sophomores. Several students took the time to decorate the truck with red and blue balloons and streamers. The annual candy bar sales took place during the fall. Mrs. Parker encouraged the sophomores to sell, sell, sell because the profit will go toward their junior-senior prom. An incredible $1,000 was collected. Only about $ 1,000 is needed to complete the total needed for their prom in 1986. The Sophomores are really looking forward to their upcoming years.

The steering committee got much input from their classmates and the sale was a success. To get involved in the homecoming activities, the Frosh entered a truck in the homecoming parade. Several of the freshmen rode in the back of the truck and used the theme of "The last Straw for the Blackford Bruins.” Next came the big event that all the freshmen look forward to when entering high school. The steering committee picked out the style of jackets that their classmates would buy.

The new building includes a complete middle school to house grades 6-7-8 with all the necessary classrooms, labs, gymnasium, offices. and cafeteria facilities for serving that group with an expected enrollment of 560. It is expected that actual construction will start in the middle of June. 1986 and be completed two years from that date. The new building will have a music area that will be shared by the middle school and the high school. This area will include a larger band rehearsal room and a choral room for vocal music and a general music classroom. The high school will have two new art rooms and two new science labs. An auditorium will be located between the two buildings and will also have an outside entrance for the public. This facility will seat 802 persons on one floor. It will have an orchestra pit with a specially built cover so that this area can also be used as part of the stage. A natatorium will be located next to the auditorium between the two buildings with a pool which is 45 feet wide by 75 feet long. It will have a tiled deck with diving boards on one end of the pool. Seating for approximately 200 people will be provided on one side of the pool. The front drive on the north side of the high school will be moved approximately 100 feet further north and will look through an arch into the outside entrance to the auditorium and natatorium. A new soft-ball field is planned next to the high school baseball field on the south side of that area. The entire project will cost a total of about $12,500,000 including all construction costs, architect fees, legal costs, and construction management fees. The new middle school and the new areas of the high school will be ready for use at the beginning of the 1988-89 school year. George Dudley Richard Merritt Asst.

Mr. Harry Kelley, principal of Angola High School, was the visitation team chairman, and twelve other educators throughout Indiana served on the team. After four days of study and investigation. Mr. Kelley conducted an exit report which summarized the week and listed a few of the strengths of the school. He also included several recommendations which the team felt could make the school even stronger. School personnel began preparation for the NCA visitation during the 1983-84 school year. The steering committee was formed and had its first meeting in the spring and also attended a conference at Indiana University in the summer of 1984. This conference was sponsored by the NCA for the purpose of helping schools prepare for the self-study, host a visitation team and conduct appropriate follow-up. During the 1984-85 year the first three general reports were completed so that other reports could follow in logical sequence. The bulk of the self-study was conducted in the fall of the 1985-86 school year. The faculty, some students, and some parents participated in numerous meetings in order to complete all reports and examine them in detail. Each faculty member served on a minimum of two committees. The secretaries provided much time in typing all reports and making copies available for committee members, administrators and NCA visitors. Mr. Paquin believed that some important changes will result from the NCA report which will help to make our school system stronger. The visitation gave school personnel an opportunity to experience the opinions and thoughts of outsiders. and this has had the effect of reassurance and support for existing programs and methods of instruction. While the NCA evaluation monopolized much administration time, other issues of importance to students also emerged. Elwood High School is somewhat behind on the establishment of an athletic code. Our first year with a code was not especially smooth as several segments of the school and city populations expressed negative opinions. The intention of the code is positive, and the effort to have a good code is admirable. However, it appears that continued study and revision are appropriate. Most of the athletes seemed to accept the code fairly well, but several had some legitimate concerns. Although acceptance was fairly widespread, general feelings were negative among the athletes. We need to work to improve the code and include student involvement in the final draft. With the exception of a number of students who are apathetic toward their education, this has been a good school year. We have an excellent teaching staff, an excellent selection of courses for all students, a fine extracurricular array of activities, many examples of student involvement and success, and a generally happy school populace. These things helped to make this a good school year. James Compton Asst. Principal Gordon Paquin Principal Dan Rayshich Earl Watson Asst. Voc. Director Voc.

While at the conference. Mrs. Briscoe attended a class “Teaching a Research Paper”, which was lectured by Professor Krull. At the end of the conference. Dr. Farr, host of this event, announced that any of the participants could submit a proposal on ideas for their classrooms from one of the lectures attended for a grant. Mrs. Briscoe submitted a proposal on the lecture she attended from Professor Krull. In January Mrs. Briscoe was notified by Dr. Farr that she was chosen one of four out of the state of Indiana to win a $100 grant for her proposal. The money from the grant went for new textbooks with articles in them for her students to read. Mrs. Briscoe feels that students should be able to read or listen to someone else's ideas, digest it into a summary, form their own opinion, react to the opinion, and provide others with another person's view.

"They are the rain drops which bring forth the petals of knowledge.' — Sandy Graham "The thorns of a rose that stick you right in your pupil!” — Beth Murphy "They are footsteps into the realm of knowledge.' — Shawn Van Ness "They are feathers that tickle my nose and give me a rash on my body." — Mark S. Back "Homework!" — John Etchison ‘They help you learn a lot and give you new experiences." — Bill Reynolds "They are encouraging and put out a lot of effort." — Kris Lane "If it is Dave Hoffman, they mean a lot.” — Larry Gibson "They are understanding. — Lisa Chriss ‘Motivation!” — Shawn Dietzer "Teachers are easy to get along with.” — Scott Jarrell 'They are nice and special!" — Pam TateAutographs 66 AutographsPeople Who Work Hard At ECHS Working hard to make the facilities at ECHS a better place is how the custodians spend their days, while the cooks prepare the lunches, and the bus drivers get the students to school on time each day. Hard work is nothing new to these people and hard work is what they do when they are at ECHS. The custodians must keep the school in its best shape. This is something that every staff member and student should appreciate. Who would want to come into an unclean school? The cooks work hard to prepare very nutrious and well balanced lunches for the students and administration. Mrs. Daleure, cafeteria manager, tries to give the students a variety of different types of food. There were many new additions to the school menu this year. A favorite for the students seemed to be the taco bake, nachos, and chicken and noodles. The bus drivers had to get the students to school in rain or shine. Bus drivers had to put up with noisy kids and long lines of traffic. A big thank you goes to the cooks, custodians, and bus drivers of our school system. We appreciate their hard work. The cooks who prepared the delicious meals for the school were Glen Slate, Denise Mosbaugh, Rosie Hancock, Jean Caldwell, Jean Stewart, and Martha Bennett. Not pictured is head cook Diana Delure and Colcen Rickabaugh. Elwood Community High School custodians for the 1985-86 school year were George Thornbcrry, Don Plake, George Morgan, Richard Coleman, and Steve Savage. The Elwood Community Bus Drivers for the 1985-86 school year were Ruton Hartley, Mary Fredd, Rhonda Murrary, Judy Huffman, and Lynne Huffman. Mary Poole is working hard to prepare the towels for the physical education classes and for the athletic teams. Mary is a very hard worker and her smile made her alot of friends with the students.

Shown above are some award winning projects from the furniture making class and the machine woodworking class. Shane Howell and Donny Pickell both won state awards in woodworking.The Fun Life At ECHS!!! If getting involved in school activities is something that you enjoy, then ECHS has the clubs for you. If you are interested in foreign languages then why not join the Spanish club or Latin club. If you enjoy student government, then Student Council is the place you should be. If you like nature and science then sign yourself up for Science club. The clubs at ECHS did many things this year. The Science club went on its annual canoe trip, while FBLA went to contest. Spanish club became very active by sponsoring the Bows and Beaus dance, lip sync contest, and the Spanish festival. Student Council once again held the most activities. A new club was formed, Students Against Drunk Driving. Clubs are a very vital part of ECHS. Many students find that the clubs help them meet new people, make new friends, and have all types of fun. It is hoped that in the future Preparing to deliver the balloons for the Student Council St. Valentines Day balloon sale are Mrs. Yates, Kelli Jo Collins, and other members of the Student Council. The Student Council sponsored many fun events throughout the year. Lets do the twist or is it the jitterbug? Mrs. Scharff and Mrs. Yates show how they use to dance in the 50's during the 50's dance sponsored by Student Council. Look at those two go. Dine at Dave's!! This little character is a salute to a very well liked teacher at ECHS, Mr. Hoffman. more students will be more involved in the clubs.

Therefore, N.H.S. members volunteered at school, church, and for community charitable functions. Activities for the year included guiding for open house and 8th grade orientation, ushering for commencement, and planning and participating in Tap Day. Through Honors and N.H.S., a new awarness has filtered through the student body and faculty; because of the new emphasis, many students have set personal goals to make better grades. The criteria for membership includes the completion of the N.H.S. service form, the completion of five semesters, and a 3.5 or higher g.p.a. A vote is taken by the nine member faculty N.H.S. committee in the categories of scholarship, character, service, and leadership. N.H.S. membership is a point of personal pride and character building accomplishment for the students. The junior members, top photo, are: H. Cook. T. Mays, A. Morrow, S. Gibbons, K. Keene, K.

This year's sponsors for the Honors program were Mrs. Merritt, Miss Mercer, Mrs. Scharff, and first semester, Mrs. McQuitty. The sponsors helped in the selection of Hoosier Scholar Award Recipients, and visited model school sites with gifted and talented programs. Participants in Honors must have a 3.4 g.p.a. or above, or be recommended by a teacher in a special area with a 2.35 g.p.a. or above. This program provides an opportunity to be challenged in enrichment activities beyond the classroom. Mr. Compton has initiated a new Honors sweater program which has revived even more positive achievement interest. Honors Students enjoy leadership and college preparatory seminars. Field trips were taken to Chicago, Brown County, Indianapolis Art Museum and Indianapolis Symphony, Mid-Winter Ballet, and a Pacer game. Row 1: Miss Mercer, Mrs. Scharff, J. Linder, M. Pedro, S.

H o n o r S 0 c 1 e t y H o n o r s Organizationsu d e n t C Beth Murphy, president; Leah Rich wine, vice-president; Sharon Gibbons, secretary; and Crista Allen, treasurer led this year’s council activities. Some of the events enjoyed were the powder-puff football game, the successful lip sync contest, the after game dances, and the cookie and balloon sales. Projects provided funds to purchase signs for the school and benches for the halls. Student Council provided as many activities as possible, and made purchases for the school.

They show that even though it is a lot of hard work, it also can be fun! Joanne Sullivan sponsors the Megaphone, the high school newspaper. Beth Murphy was the editor this year. Seven issues were published during the year, and a small staff worked hard to put a good paper with articles of interest to students and faculty. Working on the Megaphone staff provided the opportunity to learn how to conduct an interview and to organize thoughts and materials in news-writing style. Students develops a better understanding of newspapers and what they contain. The staff is chosen by careful screening, hoping to attract those willing to accept the responsibilities involved with obtaining the news, writing the articles, and meeting the printing deadlines. A candy sale helped provide funds to cover expenses and give the staff experience in handling money. A J-Day field trip was attended along with the Crescent staff.

A goal of Art Club is to establish a respectable collection of student and professional art for the appreciation and enjoyment of our students and our community. We want to provide the opportunities for participation in culturally enriching activities. Members helped to earn the money to finance our trips, selling donuts, suckers, and jewelry. Art Club went to the Chicago Art Institute to see a program on Halley’s Comet, and to Cincinnati Art Museum to see an exhibit on Franz Kline, the artist. We purchased a painting in Nashville for the Indiana artists collection in the high school. Officers included President; Shawn VanNoss, Vice-President; Scott Hofer, Secretary; Crista Allen, Treasurer; Sharon Gibbons, Activities Director; Anna Lisa Miller, with Anna May McQuitty as Sponsor. 73The Future Business Leaders of America is a national organization in which to develop leadership skills and business skills.

Whether your favorite was girl’s sports or boy’s sports, loyal Panther fans were welcomed at all times. The 1985-86 year in sports seemed to be a very positive year and maybe a little foreshadowing of the years to come. The Panther coaching staffs found themselves with some new coaches. Former Panther athletes, Mike Burdsall, Kevin Frye, and Marty Wells found themselves on the coaching staff this year. Mike Burdsall was one of the assistant football varsity coaches, assistant wrestling coach. Tony Boley took over as head wrestling coach, head track coach, coach of AAU wrestling. and one of the assistant varsity coaches. Rich Goyer, Elwood Country Club golf pro, found himself leading the golf team this year. Besides wonderful things happening on the coach staffs, wonderful things were happening on the teams. The Varsity football team had a winning season. They made CO-CIC champs and placed second in their sectional. The Varsity basketball team ended their season on a .500 record. The girl’s gymnastic team had a little difficulty in 1985-86 because of the change to option performances. This change limited the team to a very small number. The girls’ basketball team did very well. They made it to the second game of the sectional. The baseball team, girl’s and boys’ track teams, and the wrestling team were proud of their great seasons. The Athletic code became a controversial part of the athletic program. Each athlete was required to sign the code, along with their parents, before being allowed to participate. This code was an attempt to try and make the athlete responsible for his actions. The sports year looked very good for the Mighty Panthers. There could always be fans that were counted on to help the cheerleaders cheer for the Panthers on to victory! Go. fight and win.

However, this loss made the Mighty Panthers even more determined to win, and winning is exactly what happened seven games straight. The best game of the season for the Panthers was the 61-0 sectional victory over the Alexandria Tigers. During this gome against the Tigers senior running back, Larry Gibson, broke the school record in yards rushing during a single game. Running mate Ray Holliday captured the school record for most career points with a total of 276. Out of twenty-nine lettermen, eighteen of those were seniors. That left the 1936 football team with only eleven returning lettermen. However, Coach Hughes felt that if every player would be as dedicated to the team as the players were in 1965, big things could happen in 1966. This dedication did have to start in the summer, though. The football players had to meet certain requirements to play in the 1965 season. It took a team full of dedication and the desire to win to make things happen for the Mighty Panther Football team. Happen indeed, the Panthers ended their season with eight wins and three losses. The Panthers also won a share of the C.I.C. title and placed second in their sectional. Coach Hughes commented, "The C.I.C. was very competitive. It was great to win a share of it.” The Panthers averaged 31.4 points per gome and had five shut out games. Everyone on the team improved as the season went on; however, Tom Plake, Matt Conner, Fred Short, and Mike Piirto were the players whose improvements were really noticeable. This year on the Panther football team it wasn't hard to see the total team effort. What more could first year head coach, Mark Hughes and his coaching staff ask for? "The team effort was great! We won as a team and lost as a team,” commented a very proud Coach Hughes. Coach Hughes continued, "Each player dedicated himself to do the best that he could, and I feel each one of them did. Some players even went beyond what they thought that they could do.” Another Panther crunch on the Alexandria Tigers. The mighty Panthers had the chance to defeat the Tigers twice in one season. For the senior Panthers this will be a season not to be forgotten. 1985 FOOTBALL SCOREBOARD OPPONENTS US THEM Jim town 20 26 Wabash 66 14 Tipton 66 26 Alexandria 31 00 Blackford 21 00 Madison Grant 26 00 Peru 35 07 Mississinewo 32 00 SECTIONAL GAMES Alexandria 61 00 Yorktown 15 06 Mississinewo 31 32 Varsity Football 81A Round Of Applause A round of applause is due for the Mighty Elwood Panther football team for a very fine season.

First Year Head Coach Takes Success! i Mark Hughes, first year head coach of the Mighty Panther Football team, found himself with a very successful season. Coach Hughes had held the position of assistant coach for seven years before taking the position as head coach. He is also in charge of the weight lifting program, and a physical education teacher. He is also married and has two children. When Coach Hughes was asked about the team effort during his first year as head coach he commented, "Great, the team was really a family. We won as a team and lost as a ream. The Panther fan support was also great. I had never seen as much fan support in the seven years I have been at El wood. The players deserve it!" Coach Hughes first year as head coach held a lot of excitement, "it was very competitive," commented Coach Hughes when he was asked about the conference, "it was great to win a share of the CIC!" Coach Hughes looks for big things to happen in 1966. The staff helping out coach Hughes for the season were Marty Wells, Mike Durdsall, Kevin Frye (these three are former Panthers), and Tony Doley. Good Luck to Coach Hughes and his staff next year. We hope that the success of the team is another year of the sweet taste of success. Varsity Football 8}Young Panther Pride Freshman.

This year the cross country team consisted of eleven runners. Dino Dalser and Derek Pa-quin displayed their leadership through their positions as the team captains. Being on the cross country team takes a lot of hard work and dedication. Dino Dalser excelled very well this year by leading the cross country team the entire season. Rich Champion was the most improved cross country runner for the season. Since the girls cross country team did not have a team, a lot of dedication and desire was produced out of Melanie Tolle and Stacey Hoppel. Melanie Tolle placed on the All-Conference Team with her fourth place finish at the conference meet. The cross country team placed ninth at sectional and seventh in the conference. In his first year of coaching. Coach Durs-dall commented that the Peru game was the best gome of the season while Tipton was the worst.

These two ingredients do not come easily for the girls and is something Miss Personette is always working to improve. "Team effort was great, the best year ever as far as players getting along and working well together." The best two matches this year for the varsity was the first game of sectional. El-wood defeated Alex with the scores of 15-12 and 15-13 in three games. El wood also became Maconaquah Tourney champs this year. Several of the volleyball girls were part of the weight training program this summer. This will be mandatory for all in the upcoming year. Angel York was recognized quite a bit this year. She set a new school record of 84 kills, and also received the All Sectional and All County award. There were 14 players and 2 managers that lettered. Tosh McDaniel, Deth Murphy, Jera Fox, Patti Garcia, and Surena Yates were the managers this year. These five girls did a nice job. Angie Melvin and Tammy Durdsall were the captains of the team. These girls were the only seniors. Players who excelled very well and won awards a the banquet were Angie Melvin, Mental Attitude Award; Laurie Mort, Most Improved Player; Angie Martin, Defensive Player Award; Angel York, Outstanding Hitter; and Maconaquah Tourney MVP, Tommy Durdsall. Amy Groover, Heather Van Ness, and Angie Martin were in the 90% club. Diane Mitchell was also very good. She was El woods 2 hitter and Joani Smith was the best overall passer. Specialization is a big change that has been seen through the years. Some players are just hitters where as others may only play backcourt and serve. Mis Personette commented, "I'm certainly looking forward to working with those young ladies the next two years. The girls accomplished so much this year as a very young team. Their success will depend upon how committed they want to become in the program, the skill is there. It was great to watch their overall super attitudes." Several girls got playing time on the varsity which is going to help the team next year. "I really see a lot of good things coming our way in the years ahead," stated Miss Personette.

Out the Lady Panthers didn't have as much luck when they played Marion. The Lady Panthers stated, "We were not ready to play." Still the girls worked together as a team, no matter what the condition. The girls were switched around from J.V. to Varsity a lot, but they still seemed to play well together. Throughout the season Laurie Mort and Angela Higgins excelled well. The girls who improved over the season were Laurie Mort, Amy Groover, and Niki Wolff. Laurie Mort led the team with the most kills and spikes, while Amy Groover led in passing. Niki Wolff was the best defensive player. Laurie Mort and Michelle Heaton were team captains for the junior varsity team. The team scored a total of 496 points during the season. The J. V. placed third in the Madison County Tourney. The team won the first match and lost in the second. Mrs. Porker commented, "We had good dedication to our program and the girls enjoyed the season. We need a little more determination and desire to win those close ones." 88Girl's J. V.

Freshman Daphne Delich and sophomores Paula VanDuskirk and Amy Frazier were players who excelled very well for the junior varsity team this year. Team Captains took place on a rotation basis. The Panther fan support was great. A big thanks goes to the Freshman cheerleaders for the super job they did cheering for the girls during their home basketball games. Coach Hoppel commented"The last half of the season we learned how to work together as a team and this brought us many benefits." The season for the junior varsity team showed much improvement. Each individual improved one way or another.

Coach Rich Goyer thinks all the varsity players strived to achieve well. In certain areas the players excelled. Derek Pa-quin's best area was putting, and Matt John's best area was driving. Junior. Trent Hicks, seemed to be the leader of the team. Next year's outlook is very optimistic for a great season. Working throughout the summer are Trent Hicks and Derek Paquin at the Elwood Country Club Golf Course.

The girl’s were very competitive and showed a lot of enthusiasm. Seniors, Tammy Burdsall, Anita Teigstad, and Teppe Nickansen will be missed greatly next year. Freshman RaeAnne Curtis, and seniors Tammy Burdsall and Anita Teigstad qualified for sectionals. RaeAnne was the lone Panther to go on to the regionols this year. The highlight of this year for the girls was placing third in the CIC. The girls were very happy and worked hard to achieve this goal. The boy's had a little difficulty at the beginning of the year only scoring a total of four points in their first meet, but the boy's steadily progressed and raised their total score each meet. Paul Rice was the only Panther boy to qualify for the sectional. Even though Paul did not make it to regionals, he put forth a great amount of effort and the coaching staff has to be very pleased with this. This year's track teams were very young, but you can count on one thing in the years to come; Elwood will have the name it deserves in track.

The season's record was 1-9 with the win being to Muncie Durris. The Muncie Burris and Alexandria matches were considered to be the best and the Madison Grant match the overall worst. Although the season record didn't show it, the majority of the players worked very hard to improve themselves. Coach Hoppel stated, "You could always find Greg Zink on the courts practicing more than anyone else." Yet, most players worked very hard to improve well throughout the season. Players who excelled very well were Troy Hicks, Nathan Hood, and Kurt Slayton. The best doubles were Kurt Slayton and Nathan Hood, while Troy Hicks and Mike Linder were noted for the best singles. Mike Linder and Scott Leisure were the seniors on the team. Crista Allen and Scott Hofer were managers for this years tennis team. "There is more interest in tennis now. I am getting better athletes every year. I really hope that we can be competitive in most of our matches next year," commented Coach Hoppel. We wish the tennis team lots of luck for next year's season.

The girls came in 4th at C.I.C. Angie Melvin played hard and came in 2nd in conference in 1 singles. Following behind her was Crista Allen placing 4th in 2 singles. The 1 doubles players, Tash McDaniel and Heidi Cook, placed 3rd at conference. Angel York and Daphne Kelich worked hard at placing 2nd in the 2 doubles spot.

The team effort wasn't quite what it should have been. Players worked hard at times but did not always execute during game situations. "I don’t think that all of our young players realize what it takes as far os dedication and desire are concerned." stated Coach Domholt. The best games were beating Anderson 10-5 and Blackford 3-2. Most of the parents and fans were really supportive at home and on the road. The team worked on a lot of sprints, jogging, and weight lifting, as well as, work on fundamentals for their baseball training. This year Marc Bastion and Chuck Hoover were chosen as El wood representatives to play Pete Rose Jr.'s American Legion baseball team. Marc and Chuck played this gome with several Madison County players. The most improved players over the season were Chuck Hoover and Jason Kleinbub. Chuck really improved as El-wood's best catcher while Jason ended up being one of our best hitters. More Bastion and David Tunnell were El wood's best pitchers. Andy Hussong and Ray Holliday were the best defensive players, but overall every player excelled well. Coach Bomholt has been head coach for eight years and an assistant coach for four years. With comments on next year. Coach Bomholt stated, "With all our underclassmen returning for next year, I hope we can get better. Bigger schools are now getting some of their better players out for baseball. This was not the case about four years ago." The El wood varsity boseball team consists of: (1st row) Don Nugent, mgr..

Freshman cheerleader Melonie Tolle is shown as she does a cheer during a frosh basketball gome. 1965-66 cheerleoding sponsors were Mrs. Yates and Mrs. Schorff. Doth were full of exciting and new ideas for the cheerleaders to use! Who is the BEST! EHS 106 SportsPanthers To Victory! The 1965-66 school year brought the El-wood Panther Cheerleaders into the hands of Mrs. Scharff and Mrs. Yates, the new sponsors. All three squads attended Dali State University in June for the Universal Cheerleading Association camp. The freshman squad received the Most improved squad ribbon, while the Junior Varsity squad collected two superior ribbons and two excellent ribbons. The Varsity squad won one superior ribbon, three excellent ribbons, and won the spirit stick individually one night. All three squads combined won the spirit stick and brought it home. The cheerleaders have had many different selling projects. They sold cook books, rally clappers, and sponsored the coat room during basketball season. The money raised went towards the new outfits that all three squads received this year. The cheerleaders worked very hard throughout the year to raise school spirit. Making announcements, creating posters, decorating lockers, and making hoops were just part of their jobs. The cheerleaders also had the Hospitality Room at all varsity basketball games during halftime. This room was for all the Elwood cheerleaders and the opposing teams cheerleaders. Cokes and snacks were provided by all three squads. This year the cheerleaders found the band to be a major factor for them. The bond supported the cheerleaders during the entire football and basketball season. Help from the band made the cheerleaders job a lot easier. Receiving blazers for their four years of sevice as a cheerleader were Marianne Perez and Kim Werline. They were both freshman cheerleaders and spent three years on the varsity squad. Receiving sweaters for their third year of service were Gina Hoffer, Teresa Mays, and Angie Morrow. Receiving megaphones for second year service were Angela Higgins, Kelli Collins, Amy Noone, and Amy Scott. Receiving a megaphone charm were Candi Morrisett, Shelly Lawson, Stacey Gosnell, Lynne Fettig, Melonie Tolle, Toni Shepard, and Marci Lee. So all in all this cheerleading season turned out to be successful, with a new look of sponsors, new outfits, and an overall new look of school spirit! Victory for the Panthers!

Frank the Panther was the official mascot of the 1985-86 Crescent. Frank the Panther originated from the mysterious student Frank Butcher (for those of you who know' about Frank Butcher, you will know' what we are talking about). Frank the Panther appeared throughout the book with his friends and family. Without Frank the Panther this yearbook would have never been Carried Awray!!!! 108 Academic DivisionAll Work No Play Homework, what would you do without homework? Probably a lot of other things. Yet, in order to achieve in the academic world at ECHS you must strive for your best. Good grades do not come easy and that is why it is important to work hard on your homework even if you would much rather not do it. There are many programs in school to help promote and encourage students to keep their grades up. Mrs. Merritt’s "Dumb to be Dumb” month, which takes place in April, is a brilliant and very creative way to promote good grades. The Honors program is a great promoter of good grades and even the academic scholarship sweaters that are new this year encourage the students to make good grades. Academics does not only mean homework for students. For the juniors it means PSAT and SAT. For the seniors it means deciding where to go to college or what to do after graduation. For freshman it means having to put up with homework for four more years. For sophomores it means that they better keep their grades up so they can get into National Honor Society next year. For teachers, well you all might have guessed this one. It means making out lesson plans and yes, more homework!! A nice lunchtime chat!!! Seniors Carmen Headley. Kelly Updegraph, and Debbie Twiford take time out from their lunch to catch up on the events of the day. Frank Archart, senior, enjoys what he is doing in his electronics class. Frank seems to be paying a lot of attention. Kathy Burke and Tony Hoover take time to talk to each other between classes. Five minutes between classes gave each student a chance to say hello to all their friends.

Mrs. Merritt started this idea five years ago to get the students involved. "A little push to get started goes a long way for many students, " commented Mrs. Merritt. She continues to make funny posters of teachers and events that happen around El wood High School. These remind students to keep up their good grades. The students who kept up with their grades were in Honors. While in Honors, seminars and special field trips were arranged. The Honor students got involved, so that they could attend these seminars and fieldtrips. A 3.4 grade point average was obtained to be in Honors. A seminar was held by Dr. Tim Leutzenheizer on leadership. Also fieldtrips were taken to Indianapolis. One to the art museum and the other to the symphony. The faculty in charge of Honors iw known as the H-Teom. The H-Teom consists of Mrs. Merritt, Mrs. McQuitty, Mrs. Scharff, and Mr. Huffman.

"No one hos o right to put ot risk himself or strangers." Larry Gibson and Kim Werline realized that someone needed to put a stop to drunk driving in the El wood community. and so they worked with Miss Johnson to get a S.A.D.D. chapter started at E.C.H.S. to help get this problem under control. About 60 students were members of S.A.D.D. this year which was a great turn-out for the first year. At the first S.A.D.D. meeting "Contracts for Life" were distributed. These contracts were for the students to sign assuring their parents that they would call home for a ride before driving home after they had been drinking or their driver had been drinking. Also the parents were to sign the contract assuring their children that they would not drive after they had been drinking. Several guest speakers were invited to speak at the S.A.D.D. meetings. Speakers included Pat Rice, an El wood police officer and Mr. Parker, a Tipton County sheriff. This year's S.A.D.D. activities included pin-a-friend day. a Christmas party at Circle, and a school lock-in. On pin-a-friend day each S.A.D.D. member was given a bog full of pins with the S.A.D.D. emblem on it. After you pinned someone you passed the bog on. Dy the end of the day most everyone had on a pin. The school lock-in included a lip sync, relays, a dance, a movie, and eating contests. Angie Morrow will be the president of S.A.D.D. next year, and she hopes that as many people. if not more, get involved in S.A.D.D. 112 AcademicsPictured to the right ore the originators of Elwood's Below is Pot Rice, on Elwood police officer.

Miss Paula Simmons, the band director, heads the choral department. Although the choir is young and with not much experience Miss Simmons thinks the program will continue to grow. The students enrolled now and the new choral program at the jr.high brighten the future for this to happen. The choir students like to sing ballads and music from musicals, but their versatility was demonstrated at several programs. An outstanding performance by the choir for the Christmas church service at the Har- mony Christain Church was eagerly accepted. The Elwood Choir was also invited to the Madison County Choral Program. The choir doesn't stop there. These students and many others may also be in choral company. About 50 students signed up which was very optimistic. They practiced and then performed in the 1986 variety show. The theme of the variety show was "Liberty Spectacular." This theme honored the restoration of the Statue of Liberty. The 1985-86 school year borught about much excitement and enthusiasm to the Elwood Choir and Choral Company. ’ ’Choir is really fun, and you learn a lot if you want to.

The sounds of music con often be heard throughout the school during seventh hour and out on the football field during the summer. Like always, the Panther band and corp have been very active this year. This year's activities included marching in five parades, attending band camp at Concordia Seminary in Fort Wayne, the Community Christmas Concert, several field competitions, the home football and basketball games, music contest at Muncie Central, solo and ensemble contest, a play-a-thon, a march-a-thon, Liberty Spectacular, and the Apple Blossom Festival in Washington D.C. The marching band worked extra hard at band camp this year, and they worked even harder when they returned home; their hard work paid off out on the football field when they advanced all the way to the regionals during their 1965 marching season. The band's competition music this year was Novena, Spain, Fantasy, and Grace. Officers for the band this year were Maria McCabe and Pam Goins serving as Drum Majors; Shelly Cox and Jodi Simmons serving as Guard Captains; Brian Hunt serving as Band Lieutenant; and Staci Jack serving as Secretary. The band attended contest on April 26 at Muncie Central. Their music for this contest was Coventry, Imparatrix, and a concert march. Several members of the band participated in solo and ensemble contests at Ball State University. Also participating in solo and ensemble contest for the guard was Anna Ball. Anna competed with a flag routine that she made herself. The Panther Band was very excited when invited to march in the Apple Blossom Festival Parade held in Washington D.C. The band left after school on April 30 and returned on May 4. The band held two candy sales, a shopping spree sponsored by Marsh Supermarket, and a play-a-thon to raise money for their four day trip.

Marianne is going through the chronica Is which ore individual career descriptions. Delow is Marianne Perez on one of her visits to the Career Center. Marianne has found the center to be auire useful for her needs. El wood Community High School has hod a Career Resource Center since 1961. The center was equipped with Interest Inventories, Career Aptitude Batteries, Computer Career Searches. Computer College Selection Searches, a vast amount of printed career information, and direct career counseling to assist you in choosing your career. The purposes of the center were to assist students in gaining self-awareness in a manner that relates to career goals, to help the student gain awareness of job seeking skills, and to help students with the development of these skills. The Career Center gives junior high eighth grade students an opportunity to participate in a Career Decision Making program also. The intent of the COM program was to help the student assess his or her interests, abilities, and values as they would apply to their future career goals. The program assisted the student in deciding which high school curriculum would best meet their individual needs. It could also play an important role in helping the youth of today make the right choices for tomorrow was developed through the cooperation of the junior high and high school guidance departments along with the Resource Center. The center, in cooperation with the high school honors program coordinators, sat up a career education unit for the freshman honor students also. The basic goal of this unit in career education is to allow for the student to better conceptualize his or her future career plans through an awareness study of their interests, aptitudes, and values. Activities included administering interest inventories, conducting career assessment testing, and direct career counseling. Freshman honor students are scheduled into the center for 3 one-hour sessions. The center also has a job placement program. Through this program they would like to develop a network that would assist our students clients who are seeking employment after terminating their formal education. This program is for ABE students completing GED, or high school graduation, seniors who have completed two years of specific vocational training, or seniors who have finished high school and are not going to any further training. To do this they had to develop a complete profile for each client who is interested. The center organizes and stores the profiles, awaits requests from employers, and then matches the job order with an employee. The Resource Center is very active in the high school by trying to help everyone make the right choice.

Mr. Merritt considers attending ball games, plays, contests, programs, and all forms of school activities not just spare time, but part of his job. Riding bikes is an activity he and his wife, Raeanna enjoy. Sometimes they mix work with pleasure by riding their bikes to various school activities. Mr. Merritt not only is involved with the young people of our community, but he is also involved with many activities in our community as well. Mr. Merritt and his family moved to Elwood in 1935. He graduated in 1952 from Wendell Willkie High School (EHS). In 1956 he received his B.S. from Ball State, an M.A. in 1963, and his completed additional graduate work. Mr. Merritt stated, "I am not sure why I chose education because there were many job opportunities in the mid-fifties.” He wanted to influence young people to be the best they can be. He found a career in education both interesting and challenging. "The responsibility to provide the best education for young people and adults regardless of their ability and interest level is a tremendous challenge," commented Mr. Merritt. Mr. Merritt had held various positions in the school corporation. 1956-57 Lin wood School, 1957-1958 EJHS, 1958-1964 Oakland School, 1965-1978 Principal of EJHS, and 1978-1979 Principal of EHS.

He has had his own business, Comer Real Estate, for the past six years. Lindley finds his work interesting because he enjoys working with farmers and being outside much of the time. Becoming a farm real estate broker gave him the opportunity to work with the public, particularly farmers. Although he enjoys his work very much, if he could do it all over, he would also liked to have been an attorney. He likes preparing the various documents involved in his real estate and appraisal business. Lindley is active in his church and a member of the Elwood Rotary club and the Elks Lodge. He also belongs to the Indiana Chapter of the Indiana Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers. He graduated from Fairmount High School in 1958 and from Purdue University with a degree in Agriculture in 1962, where he was a member of Alpha Gamma Rho and Alpha Zeta Fraternities. Lindley is married to the former Linda Kolberg, and has three children, Lisa Kelsey, Annie, Bob, and two stepchildren, Dean and Gina. In his spare time he enjoys working with his computer, or working in the yard. If there is one thing about Elwood he would like to see changed, it would be to entice more industry to town. If he could make any changes in the Elwood school system, he would have more discipline in the classrooms.

Jerry Dean Werline has been coaching since the age of sixteen. At sixteen he coached the first Elk’s sponsored minor league team and won the city championship. He has been coaching ever since. In 1979 he was one of the men who built the Elwood Minor League field. In 1981 he was president of the Elwood Minor League. Through the time his son played minor league baseball, he coached the teams his son played on. He presently is on the Board of Directors at the Elwood Babe Ruth and coaches his son’s baseball team Falveys. Baseball is not the only sport this active citizen can be found coaching. During his younger years he helped coach the basketball team at his former school St. Joseph Catholic School. In 1979 he also coached the boys’ fifth and sixth grade basketball teams at Washington Elementary School. Jerry says he was inspired to coach by his former coach Joe Morris. " started coaching because Joe Morris told me that coaching was the best way to help kids.” Not only does Jerry spend his time coaching, but he also spends his time trying to improve the Elwood City Parks. He is a two year member of the Elwood Park Board. And is now president. Jerry has completed several projects that have greatly improved the Elwood City Parks. He is also a member of the St.John Lutheran Church and the church council at St.John. He works at Delco-Remys and is a Vietnam Veteran. He has been married for twenty years to his high school sweetheeart, Grace (Hevron) Werline. Grace is a Licensed Practical Nurse and works at the Family Practice Clinic. Jerry has two children Kimberly and Kevin. Working in the yard, being with his family, rooting for the Chicago Cubs (even when they get beat), meeting new people, and sharing his happiness with others around him is how Jerry Werline fills up his free time slots. Growing up in Elwood and contributing his time to the city and the children of the city has proven to be very rewarding for this Elwood native Jerry Dean Werline.

She says that there are many duties invovled with a business career like waiting on customers, helping people select frames, doing the actual framing — cutting frames, constructing frames, and ordering merchandise. One part of the job that Barbara dislikes is the long hours. She has to be in the store before it opens each day and she has to stay until it closes. Barb believes that the best reward you can get out of this job is a sense of accomplishment when you have completed a framing job. "I really like what I do and I would not change it for the world.” Barbara formerly worked at the local newspaper (The Call Leader) for fifteen years and enjoyed that also. She said that her business evolved from a dream to own a "shop” someday. Reading, needlework, traveling, golfing, and gardening are the things that Barbara enjoys doing in her spare rime. She said that she also enjoys watching girl’s and boy’s sports such as basketball and volleyball. The one thing that Barbara would like to change in Elwood is people’s attitudes. She said that she wishes that she could instill a sense of community pride in every resident of our community. "A more positive attitude would cure many of the ills in our community. ” Barbara is active in the Elwood Chamber of Commerce. She is in a local sorority, Delta Theta Tau, which is a national philanthropic organization, and she is a member of the Elwood City Council. Barbara is a proud citizen of Elwood and is glad to be a part of this community. State Road 37 So.

Anderson St. El wood, Indiana 552-3422David Hoffman A native of Wabash, Indiana, Mr. Hoffman participated as a band member, played on the football team, and served on the student council during high school years. His favorite subjects were history and English. He was a typical teenager as he enjoyed driving around town, listening to music, going to the drive-in movies and after game dances, and taking part in school plays. At Purdue, Mr. Hoffman majored in International Relations his first four years, and in European and American History for his masters degree. It wasn’t until after serving in the Army for two years that he decided to go into teaching. He came to Elwood because he was married, needed a job, and wanted to teach in a school about the size of ECHS. Mr. Hoffman, his wife, and their two sons have resided in Elwood for seventeen years. He likes the students here and finds them interesting. In addition to the history courses he is now teaching, he has also taught government classes. He has considered other occupations besides teaching, but he is still here! Mr. Hoffman says that teaching is hard work done under difficult conditions for low pay. He thinks to prepare for an occupation that you will like will bring more contentment than to work at something you dislike just to make more money. His philosophy is that there is more to life than work, and that we should enjoy living along the way. When asked if he had noticed many changes during his teaching career, Mr. Hoffman responded that things usually change very slowly in education. It seems to him that students are less interested in the rest of the world than they were a few years ago. He thinks students today need to know more because there is so much more to learn. Mr. Hoffman believes that our education is vital to our future. Thar is the one thing he knows we will all learn whether it is now or later. Compliments Of BURNETTE- DELLINGER INC.

Graduating from Herndon High School, she received a B.A. in English from the College of William and Mary in 1967. Following graduation, she came to Indiana and married her husband, Dick Herndon. They lived in Franklin, Indiana, for two years, and came to Elwood in 1969. Franklin schools didn’t practice hiring husband and wife teams in the same system; therefore, Mr. Herndon’s brother recommended that they apply at Elwood. Mrs. Herndon began teaching at Elwood Junior High School, where she taught seventh and eighth grade English and sponsored the newspaper, the Panther's Paw. During this time, she completed her M.A. In secondary education from Ball State University. Mrs. Herndon taughta at the junior high for eleven years before transferring to Elwood Community High School in the fall of 1985. "It’s been a challenging year, hut I love the high school. I am impressed with what high school students can do, and enjoy their sense of humor!" stated Mrs. Herndon. Mrs. Herndon teaches English 3 and 4. and short story, and mass media, classes designed to meet the English requirement for community bound seniors. Mrs. Herndon's husband is the head of the math department at Hamilton Heights High School. They have a son, Carter, who is in the fifth grade at Oakland. They also have several cats: Otis, Belle, Simone, Tiger, and Elmer Gantry. Between teaching, sponsoring Thespians, family and community activities, there isn't much spare time. Mrs. Herndon is the president of the Elwood Plan Commission, treasurer of the Elwood Library Board of Trustees, a member of the Elwood Board of Zoning Appeals, Delta Theta Tau sorority, and St. Joseph’s Church. She enjoys reading, bike riding, playing the piano, listening to music, and talking to students! Mrs. Herndon thinks that the schools in Elwood are one of the town’s strong points. If she could change anything in the schools, she would make sure that everyone understood that an education is your equal chance for success. "It’s not just a burden unfairly placed on your shoulders. An education is something you achieve for yourself that no one can take away from you. It's your good start for a successful life." Given the importance of getting people off to a good start in their lives, Mrs. Herndon believes there is nothing more important that she could be doing. She considers it a pleasure!

Many people do not realize the hard work that is put into the making of the yearbook. This years staff found out that it was a year of hard work and a time to get carried away. Right away each staff member started to feel the pressure of deadlines. Deadlines, we never thought we would get through them. We had our good times and we had our bad times this past year while we put together this book. First of all every new member had to be informed on what was going on and what they were suppose to be doing. One tends to wonder today if they really knew what went on the whole year. Then there were the photographers that had to take the blame for every missing negative. Oh Boy! What a mess! Then there were the people who never made their deadlines. Oh well, we won’t talk about that. We hope that you enjoy this years book and the theme "Let’s Get Carried Away!!” We hope that everyone enjoyed Frank the Panther and the carried away spirit he brought to this book. We hope that every reader feels the carried "awayness” we put in our book. "Let’s Get Carried Away!!!” This was the theme used by the Crescent Staff this year. The theme was picked by editors Kim Werline and Ann Thornberry. In the photo above the staff is showing just how carried away they could be. Row one: Christy Decker, Jena Jones (notice she likes rubber cement), and Tina Lovell (she is holding a dictionary). Row two: Kelly Keene, Tony Parry (he’s the one taking the picture), Tim Williams, and Kristin Noelle McQuitty (Super Jock). Row three: Gina Hoffer (the graduate), Lynn Hanshew (she likes to blow bubbles), Kirsten (our lil’ German), Angie Martin, Ann Thornberry (one of the dingy editors), Frank the Panther (now he’s one cool dude), Kim Werline (the other dingy editor), Mike Piirto (Mr. Cool), Marsha Burdette, and Heather Van Ness. We would like to thank the art department for the use of the hamburger; it made us all hungry. 158 ClosingColophon A Special .. In order for this yearbook to be completed it took a lot of hard work from many, many people. The Crescent staff at this time would like to thank all those persons who helped us in any way complete our book "Let’s Get Carried Away!!” A big thank you goes to our yearbook representative from Jostens, Kim Ash. His guidance and encouragement made things work out for us. A thank you is due Life-touch for the senior, underclass, faculty, and school related photographs. A thank you goes to Mrs. Lori Smith, our advisor, for going through all the hard times with us. A thank you goes to the art department for the art work they allowed us to use in the yearbook. Jeff Lynas deserves a thank you for all the Panthers he created for the staff. A thank you goes to Amy Groover and Sean Dixon for their help in the photography department. A very big thank you goes to those persons who purchased advertisements. Without these advertisements our book would never have had the financial support it needed. A special thank you goes to all those members of the staff. A lot of hard work was put into this book and the editors really appreciate the work everyone has put into this book. "Let’s Get Carried Away!!” was the theme for the 1986 Crescent, the 70th book produced in the history of the publication. This theme was symbolic of the carried away spirit that the students of ECHS had. Frank, the Panther, helped to carry this theme throughout the book. A total of 377 books were sold at the price of $13.50. Our yearbook company is Jostens, with Mr. Kim Ash as our representative. This year is the second year for the Crescent to be a pasteup. The paper is a 191 gloss with the size being a 9 16. The end sheets are a soft blue with the cover being a litho 470 with the colors cyna and magenta. Board weight is 150. The name stamp color is blue. ''Let’s Get Carried Away!!” For all of you who have read the index or plan to read the index, you will notice that there are a variety of celebrities listed. At the time of the printing of this book, the pictures of these celebrities were not available. We hope that you will excuse us for this mistake and this terrible joke. Wouldn’t we all like to have a picture of Tom Cruise in our yearbook or even Whitney Houston. Sorry!! We even almost got Ronald Reagan to appear. That is how carried away the yearbook got.
