TRACES 1 986 Spring Supplement EVERYDAY A MEMORY Recollections: The Closing Chapter With the new life of nature in the early months of 1986 came a renewed vigor in the community at Enrico Fermi. Sports’ focal points moved back outdoors as the in- creasing heat and humidity dared participants and spectators alike to forsake school loyalties. Consistent with the long tradition of Falcon spirit, few succumbed. Tenacity reaped rewards as absorbing com- petition indulged team members and their fans. Spring also triggered new pro- jects for year-round activities, as H.E.R.O. climaxed its calendar with the opening of Cafe Rendezvous, while the yearbook staff re- juvenated itself with the production of the 1986 Traces supplement. Fermi’s influence in the surrounding community was expanded by members of the National Honor Society, who organized, promoted, and helped fuel the Red Cross blood drive held at Fermi in May. But by far the most obvious display of Spring fever was the class spirit among seniors, which pushed class pride to a four-year high. Suddenly, activities signifying the end of high school seemed to abound. Variety show rehearsals to attend, prom gowns to buy, gradua- tion requirements to attain — such concerns dominated the typical senior’s mind. And with these diver- sions, the bittersweet realization that Fermi would soon become our past managed to be suppressed — at least until the 24th of June. Meanwhile, the days and the poten- tial for new memories were rapidly running low. Monday Tuesday [ Wednesday 3 1. Beth Nohmy utilizes a unique pitching style to add speed to the ball. Here she is at the top of her windup, concentrating on the catcher’s glove behind home plate. 2. Kim Linonis ' quick hop on the ball stops another run. 3. Concentration and an accurate throw are essential skills for a second baseman. After stopping a ground ball in the in- field, Sue Mercik prepares to throw towards home plate. 4. J.

Second row: Theresa Buss, Lynn Moran, Beth Nohmy, Brenda Kramer, Kathy Peirce, Darcy Hunt, Coach R. 4 Sullivan. Softball The 1986 Girls’ Varsity Softball Team was composed exclusively of underclassmen. It was led by junior captains Sue Mercik and Paula Hansen. The team compiled a record of 7 and 12 overall, and 5 and 9 for the league. Although it did not have a winning season record, the team members had a learning season. The experience gained from the season helped to re-establish a winning program for the year 1987. TERNI iCRHi; jEERNI, EtRNF- SZRHI Baseball! America’s favorite pastime! Fans turned out to watch the varsity baseball team play, and, although the club’s record was 5-14, they were not disap- pointed. They saw Fermi’s players dart back and forth, trying to steal bases or home, and watching the determination on their faces proved the old adage that it is how you play that counts, not how much you succeed. 1. Ken Chase shows the best side of his looks as he catches the ball at third base. 2. Catcher Al Jansujwicz receives some practice throws during a pre-game warm-up. 3.

Mark Wisnesky dodges for an incoming ball. 5 Girls’ Tennis The Girls’ Varsity Tennis Team proved that goals could be ac- complished with fun and hard work. Although the team had a slow start, the team struggled and had a terrific comeback ending. With the team reaching the State Tournament for the fifth year in a row, the members were led by C.C.C. East All-league players Kathy Hoinoski, Heather McCain, and Katie LeBlanc. The tennis team’s overall record was 8-7 and finished with a league record of 4-3. With sophomore Katie LeBlanc voted M.V.P. Ten- nis Player for 1986, the tennis team secured a promising future. 1. Determination in tennis crosses the sport ' s in- ternational boundaries, as German exchange student Connie Offergeld meets the ball. 2.

Kathy Hoinoski is in position and awaits the next volley. 5. Girl ' Tennis: First row: Kristin Fuller, Cap- tains Leona Maher and Connie Offergeld, Kathy Hoinoski, Heather McCain, Kathy Butterworth. Second row: Laurie Dursza, Lee Pillitteri, Heidie Vanderheiden, Sara Levinthal, Donna Plourde, Debbie Steben, Katie LeBlanc, Sharon Butterworth, Coach Kathleen Carbone. Boys’ Tennis The 1986 Boys ' Tennis Team finished with an overall record of 6 wins and 7 losses. In the league they finished with the fourth best record of 4 wins and 3 losses. The team was young; only two seniors, Bill Maybe and Paul Mailhot, com- peted on the courts. 3 1. Boy Tennis: First row: Captains Tim Moriarty, Mike Stiles, and Russ Flugel. Second row: Gordon Murphy, Martin Gatto, Kevin Kita, Lenny Reyes, Robbie Krochmal, Bill Mabey, Paul Maillot, Jamie Tenero. Third row: Coach Lenny Shortz, Jim Plato, Dave Blanchfield, Scott Shelton, Dave Stroiney, Ed DiLoreto, Brian Austin, Chris Valuckas, Wade Summers, Enzo Reale, Manager Michele Brown. 2. Enzo Reale ' s blazing serve sets up the first part of a home match. 3. Russ Flugel aims to encompass victory while returning a difficult low ball. 4. Keeping an attentive eye on the ball, Wade Summers prepares to " put this volley away. " 5. Lenny Reyes adds a little spin to this shot, at- tempting to quell Coach Shortz ' continued disparagement of the maneuver. The Girls’ Track Team was a young and inexperienced squad with eight underclass athletes on it. Although only one win was recorded for the season, the girls put forth their best efforts in prac- tice and in competition. Two school records were broken — the 3200 m by freshman Leslie Donor, and the 4x100 m Relay, whose team members were Dawn Berry, Jen Blaser, Julie DeNigris, and Samara Perdue. Consistent and outstanding performances were demonstrated by Sarah Fleming and Laurie McNamara. 1. Samara Perdue shows her talents in long jump competition. 2. Kathy Banahan prepares to flop over the high Jump bar. 3. Girls ' Track: First row: Kate Moriarty, Jen Blaser. Captains Brooke Raymond and Samara Perdue. Sarah Fleming, Julie Kane, Julie DeNigris. Second row: Juliet Ceresky, Allison Johnson, Leslie Donor, Laurie McNamara, Susan Lutz, Dawn Berry, Kris Wollenhaupt, Molly Mackie, Stephanie Langley, Michelle Petri, Kris Kraiza, Coach Joann Cardell. Third row: Manager Sara Bourgault, Xan Olechnicki, Laurel Cox, Jen Neville, Kathy Banahan, Sue Smilowicz, Madeleine Karlsson, Julie Perkins, Sally Sroka, Wendy Pawlyshyn, Coach Tricia Rapackie, Coach Pat Javorski. 4. After completing the slide, Madelem ' e Karlsson releases her shot-put. 5. One more lap around the track com- pletes the race for Brooke Raymond. Girls’ Track Boys’ Track The 1986 Boys’ Track Team enjoyed a successful year in in- dividual as well as team perfor- mance. The first winning meet in two years was 81-73 over Enfield High. Of the twenty-six athletes on the track team, twenty-two were underclassmen. Leading seniors were Frazer Da- ly, who achieved 2:10 in the 800, and Eric Gibbs, who outstood 40 ' 8V4 in the triple jump and 20 ' % in the long jump. Other seniors who competed were Doug Friday in the sprints, and Jeff Nicholas in the pole vault. 1. Tarek Perdue gets ready to run the first lap of the 4x4(X) relay. 2. Fermi ' s Mike McNulty sprints the last leg of his run. 3. In state competition at Hartford Public, Eric Gibbs uses his hands for balance as he hits the sand. 4.

Fourth row: Coach Mike Stasack, Eric Gibbs, Captains Jose Navarro, Rod Lewis, Dan Teigen, and Mike McNulty. 9 Golf A Par Above The Varsity Golf Team, captained by seniors Tim White and Jim White, compiled an outstanding 18-8 overall win-loss record. In- dividual performances proved to be as outstanding as the team ef- fort. Three of the ten players selected to all-league came from Fermi — Tim White, Jim White, and Ed Smith. In the C.C.C. Eastern Division, Fermi finished second to Man- chester, compiling an 11-3 record, while missing the league title by only one four-foot putt. An addi- tional highlight sparked as Fermi retained the Michael Drennan Trophy against Enfield High. 2 1. Jim White ' s, Paul Finley ' s and Tim Bate ' s huddle is broken up by some ac- tion down wayside. 2. A disgruntled Tim White grimaces as his tee-shot faulters into the rough. 3.

On June 6th, they received it. Awards were given for achievement in subjects such as English, science, math, and history. Those athletically inclined were also recognized, as students were honored for sports and gym class participation. Finally, awards were given out for excellence in activities in and out of school. These awards were passed out to those who displayed out- standing courage and leadership in school and community. 1 . Beverly Rusto leaves the stage after being presented with the Enfield Police Community Foundation Award: given to the student who demonstrated the most potential for good citizenship. 2. Gina Petronella ' s wide grin portrays her delight and excitement at having been recognized with an award. 3.

Debbie Kearney and Chris Schewokis appear nonchalant, while Mr. Cutler and Mrs. Pare have their reservations about the photographer. Out for Blood During the Red Cross blood drive conducted for a day in Fermi’s gym, school camraderie enjoyed a needed boost. Students from varied backgrounds gathered together for a common purpose — to donate blood for the good of society. As student and faculty donors relaxed in the refreshment area, a moment ' s peace was shared by many. Similarities edged out, with such discussion topics as the prom and graduation rever- berating constantly. Participants, unified by the unselfishness of giving blood, discovered the bond. Many left feeling better than when they entered. Students from the Nurses ' Aide class and the National Honor Society worked long hours to help ensure suc- cess of the project. Success indeed was accomplished; though the number of donors was limited by the age requirement of 17, 123 people did donate, increasing the Red Cross I Blood Bank by 123 pints. 1 13 Fi BRHRflnKi In its four years at Fermi, the class of ' 86 changed immensely. From fragile beginnings the class developed pride in both itself and in school. Gradually, we learned to identify with one another as we realized we shared more than perceived at first glance. Change marked our entrance into Fermi. The ramifications of being the first freshman class were felt the entire year. Joining with the sophomores in the rookie limelight did have one benefit, though — the upperclassmen ' s attention was divided during initiation rituals. Meanwhile, rivalries between the Kennedy and Kosciuszko clans still existed; but, little by little. Falcons became our dominant call. Giv- ing us a big push was Homecoming Week, 1982. Our class watched unbelievingly as we were assigned the irrelevant red on color day. That incident sparked our fight to establish ourselves as Fermi Falcons, loyal and spirited. Our homecoming float emphasized this message. Sophomore year heralded the first Fermi girls ' soccer team and the eminent " C- " rule, requiring the maintenance of a " C- " average for extracurricular participation. Class rings were selected this year. Junior year also brought new experiences; first jobs, driver ' s licenses, cafe study halls, and SAT ' s were met by many. Our class also sponsored the first junior-senior social. Many decisions were thrust upon us as the world began to open up. And then came September, 1985. Finally, we were seniors. FRIENDSHIPS EASED the strain of being the school ' s first freshman class. When in trouble, a friend could help — as Sue Giangrasso did by car- rying books for injured Heather Dubian down empty halls before the storm of students during passing time. Many of us could have used help during passing that first year, as the time was limited to four minutes. ► A IN HIS SOPHOMORE YEAR, Todd Clukey was perplexed by some of the school ' s older typewriters. However, modem typewriters, computers, and word processors replaced all outdated models by senior year. ◄ IT MUST BE HARD to smile for a camera shot when you ' re wearing the uniforms of a defunct school, especially when you ' re actually representing another. But that ' s what the freshman boys ' teams of the class of ' 86 had to put up with. The absence of Fermi uniforms ironcially proved to be a help, for it mobilized some of us to act and to defend ourselves as members of the school; otdy showing that although the Fermi name may have been miss- ing, Fermi spirit was not. ◄ OUR HOMECOMING FLOAT of freshman year! Homecoming 1982 proved to be the first unifying experience for our class. The float symbolized our emergence as Fermi Falcons from our junior high school loyalties. The spirit revealed at our first Fermi homecoming sparked a fever which would last us through our senior year. An August Year Senior privileges, two bone-chilling rains on Homecoming and Thanksgiving, the Florida trip, the 18th birthdays, the parties, the “Save the Doughnuts " campaign, the SAT verbal review course with Cindy Vranich, the tradi- tional senior activities of Spring — could one year really contain all this? Well, 1986 did. 1986 — our year. A CONTEMPLATING OUR FUTURES was an activity none of us could escape from. After all the dances, parties, and fun, serious decisions had to be made con- cerning life after Fermi. Would we follow a well-beaten path away from the school? Could we be as secure in blazing our own path? TYPICAL CLASSTIME in June? Though it ' s unsure who or what Kathy Kurkul was trying to portray in this skit from Catch-22, she only came across as herself. No, that ' s not true — Kathy would never really have her mouth shut like that. (Just kid- ding, baby.) W A THE EVERYDAY MEETING place — where just about everything could be shared, from laughs to secrets to homework to the details of last weekend. The series of identical, empty lockers exist only through the summer; while school is in session, each locker will be individualized with the paraphernalia of its user. ◄ FINALS WEEK at Fermi. And just what is there to do before a final? Among other choices. Rich DePolt hit the hack, a popular pastime in 1986. The players of the game would gather around one another in a circle. The object was to keep the ball in the air, but they couldn ' t use their hands or arms to ac- complish that. Hey, if you were bored, why not? ◄ WHAT WE ALL looked forward to from day one — the minute we ' d have that diploma in hand! Pete Calcasola realizes the seriousness of this ocas- sion. THE CLASS OF ' 86 HITS FLORIDA! Seniors who coasted to Florida in April received an early outbreak of Spring fever. A new perspective was had by many, and the experience brought the xp clo members of the class much oser together. Page 18 1.

Kelly Woods sinks into the clutches of her friend Eric Eastman. 18 Enchanted Memories It was a perfect day. The sun shone brilliantly and a soft breeze blew — a wonderful day to get dressed up and dance the night away. That is just what Enrico Fermi High School’s senior class did. At the elegant Chez Josef, a delicious dinner was served, accom- panied by the music of disc jockey Gary James. After dinner, the party started. Gpbeat music rang from the speakers as prom couples boogied out their hearts. On the other hand, the slow songs provided a time for the dancers to cool down and rest for the next set. Camera-toting prom- goers gaily snapping photos of friends; memories to last a lifetime. Prom Night 1986 was a beautiful evening, the magic provided by the senior class. It truly was “Some En- chanted Evening. " Finest Hour 1. Steve Houle signs a friend ' s yearbook. Notice anything about Steve ' s tie? (Hint; Take another look at senior formals.) 2. Tom Prior and Jennifer Stroh share smiles while waiting for the after dinner entertainment. 3. Sitting in a circle, seniors clasp hands forming an unbroken chain as they rock and sway to the music. 4. After announcing its dedication, Traces editor Kathy Ciolkos presents a copy of the yearbook to Mr. Schonberger. 5.

Ken Andersen has some thoughtful words of his own as he bows his head during the invocation. 2 After graduation, the Fermi years are over. The school now has to get along without the class of ' 86. For the graduates, graduation is a symbol of the beginning of an independent life; no longer will we have the shelter of a high school covering us. As each of us leads his of her own life, let’s not forget that we do share common foundations from our days at Fermi High. In this sense, we’re one. And if we become frustrated with life, let’s remember all we’ve achieved at Fer- mi and set it as an example of growth. Let’s not give up on faith or hope. Good luck, and farewell. Lastly, during the final days of June, 1986, amidst the excitement of prom, variety show, class night, graduation, and somebody ' s toga bash, let us not forget that the class of ’86 was indeed smart enough to know the time to act maturely. We did set our minds on things other than just social events. We did control ourselves, which allowed our teachers to continue uninter- rupted. We did decide — all by ourselves — to be a little serious. And that seriousness lasted as long as it took us to SIGN YEARBOOKS! 28 TRACES Enrico Fermi High School Enfield, Connecticut DARE TO BE NOTICED DEDICATION .1 Mario A. Gentile School leaders cast their shadows on institutions and thus influenced, | the character of the school emerges. | As principal since 1974, Mr. Mario ! Gentile has been responsible for the | structure of the educational pro- ! gram offered at Enrico Fermi High | School. Amid pressures for change from within and without the educa- tional establishment, Mr. Gentile has provided an environment in which pupils with diverse needs were able to gain knowledge and I skills appropriate to the demands of the present world. His personal | values and professional judgment i have directly affected the lives of i countless students. Mr. Gentile retires from educa- i tion this year after thirty-one years ; of service to the inhabitants of En- I field. He received his Bachelor’s : Degree from American Interna- tional College in 1956 and his ; Master’s Degree from Westfield i State College. He taught social , studies at A. D.

Enrico Fermi High School is one school out of hundreds in the state and thousands in the country, located in a technological world. This technology has brought a dichotomy of ramifications. Along with ease in living has come a desire for immediate gratification; with rapid communication has come a dearth of heroes; with computer-based knowledge has come the decline of individuality. It is easy to forget that the strength of a society is based on the contributions of each member and the growth of a society requires innovation and fortitude. But in fact, the individual is still paramount and heroes are those who dare to be different. During the last four years, we have each begun to define our parameters and search for an identity. There were numerous factors that enabled us to dream beyond the ordinary and to develop our ap- titudes. Primary among them were the diverse op- portunities given at Enrico Fermi High School. Elec- tive courses assisted us in developing talents, while required courses gave us skills to pursue further studies as well as to comprehend the modem world. Those of us who sought further expression of our in- dividuality found an outlet in clubs, activities and sports. Overseeing all this was a staff of profes- sionals who accepted our differences and encour- 4 CO FERMI ' SCHOOL falcons )F 1979 aged their developement. Simultaneously, from our peers we found the courage to be ourselves and the objectivity to respect differences. The introspective attitudes of early adolescence with its monumental pressure to conform, yielded to a desire to be more than “one of the crowd.” We have learned to welcome and to en- courage differences in attitudes and beliefs. We have learned to rejoice in each other’s small victories, and commiserate in each other’s pain. Indeed, we have learned the value of a friend. Finally, we came to the realization that among the greatest heroes (in a world so devoid of heroes) were those who spent years nurturing us: our parents. Be- ing heroic sometimes meant fulfilling respon- sibilities, imposing structure and persevering each day. It meant the postponement of luxuries and the sacrifice of time. Because of all these factors we have been able to break away from the mainstream and to find the courage to think for ourselves. Because we were given a chance to grow with love and understanding, we can now be our own heroes and dare to be noticed. 5 TABLE OF CONTENTS Notable Seniors Kathleen Butterworth Daryl Gordon Cindy Kita 17 Distinguished Faculty Karen Drouin Janice Wiener 61 Adventurous Underclassmen Gena Alaimo LoriAnn Neild 77 Challenging Academics and Activities Heather Barberie Christine Young 111 Daring Sportsmen Kristin Fuller Samara Perdue 151 A Fantastic Finale Catherine Dustin 191 Layout Design David Glenn Photographer Wade Summers Artwork Susan Guay 8 I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence; Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.

By his thinking he not only makes character, but body and affairs, for “as he thinketh within himself, so is he.” Charles Fillmore 16 J With graduation just around the comer it’s time to ask yourself, “What have I learned through my years at Fermi High School? How have I grown? Matured? Have I become more responsible, an individual? My own person?” During our years at high school, we have become involved with choices that have changed as our tastes have changed. The change from freshman to senior year is simple, a growth in maturity, an increase in our ability to make our own judgments, to make our own friends, to make a choice, to dare to be noticed. We have the responsibility to step away from the crowd and realize our own potential. We have the judg- ment to step above and beyond peer pressure and make our own decisions. As freshmen, we followed the status quo, as seniors we can step away from the crowds of Levi’s and Reebok’s, realizing that what you wear, or how you wear it does not determine the type of person you are or the individual values you have. I like to think of and remember our class, the Class of ’87, as a group of individual people who are not afraid to express their opinions and ideas. And hopefully, as our lives evolve, we will retain the individual values and sense of responsibility needed to be different.

Drafting, food preparation, graphic arts, automotive and nurses aids were some that led to job place- ment. Students in these classes testified to the value of their training. Food preparation trained many seniors in the art of plan- ning and preparing restaurant meals. Students ran their own restaurant. Cafe Rendezvous, and catered banquets. The graphic arts program in- troduced students to the fields of printing, the printing press, layouts and design. Drafting and the mechanical and visual AS HE SITS AT a table amid the numerous kitchen appliances found in A 100, Don D’agostina proudly displays his Cafe Rendezvous jacket.

Our senior year was a great year to raid parent’s old war- drobes. Looks from the fifties, sixties, and seventies had come back into vogue. Those pants that ended just below the knee, known to our mothers as pedal pushers, were an essential part of an up-to-date wardrobe. Oversized shirts worn outside the pants gave everyone the “tired executive” look. The Don Johnson ten-button pastel-colored T-shirt was in. A fashion craze that swept the country was the beach look. Who in our class could be caught without a pair of Jams? White T-shirts with blank fronts and windsurfers on the back started to appear in Fermi’s hallways. Along with the aerobic work-out and the use of Spandex came the Reebok aerobic shoe. Whether they were white, pink, grey, black, or red, with velcro or laces, Reebok sneakers were on everybody’s feet. The Converse All-Star was back in fashion with the hi-top sneaker craze. Just about any type of skirt was vogue in 1987. The popularity of the mini-skirt, full-length skirt, and the fishtail skirt all at the same time enabled members of the class of 1987 each to ex- press their own individuality. 23 •« HAVING ONCE AGAIN restored his coiffure to perfection, Travis Lombardi listens intently to Miss DeHaan explaining the fine points of critical writing. ▼ A SITTING BE- FORE A pile of notebooks, Alaina Dube debates on what assignment to begin preparing.

Cybulski Foreign Exchange Seniors During the 1987 school year, Enrico Fermi High School again had the pleasure of hosting students from a broad range of foreign coun- tries. Students from Japan, Germany, Australia, Finland, Norway, and Den- mark left familiar family and friends for an entire year making Enfield their tem- porary home.

These students brought with them an optimistic attitude, courage, and a strong desire to learn. Being a foreign stu- dent carries with it the pressure of adapting to a new culture; dif- ferent values, routines, languages, and styles. All had fears of not fit- ting in and being lonely, but with healthy outlooks, and a strong sense of humor, these students overcame their difficulties. Students at Enrico Fermi have benefited from the foreign Ex- change Program for the last fifteen years. Being exposed to students from a variety of cultural backgrounds has led to a greater appreciation of the similarities rather than differences that exist between nations. As a result, the Foreign Exchange Program profits not only students from abroad but the entire school community.

In the morning, automobiles scurried around hunting for a parking spot before the warn- ing bell. At 2:00 p.m., they were seen lined up, bumper to bumper, waiting to depart for their new destination. Lack of “wheels” in En- field was synonymous with dependence: dependence on parents and on friends.

When did you start working on the music? “We started in November and finally recorded it in May.” What do you think made the piece as good as it was? “I think it was because we have such different tastes. Dan likes the harmonics of music.” “And Scott likes the ‘deep’ personal side of music.” Tell me about the competition? “We did not think we had much of a chance until we talk- ed to one of the judges. He said that it was a great example of an electronic music piece. It really made people think.” How did you feel when you won? “We were shocked.

On his job, he sets the tires and chassis and also does all around maintenance on the engine and body. Initially, John worked on a ’56 Corvette for drag racing. Then three years ago he became involved in the 90SK stock car racing. Last year he started working on the PT 73 Pro stock cars which Jerry Marquis presently drives. When they race, they travel to many New England raceways. Lately they have raced at the Riverside Speedway in Agawam, Massachusetts, Monadnock Raceway in New Hampshire, and Thomps on Speedway in Thompson, Connecticut. John’s assistance helped Jerry Marquis to win the track championships at the Stafford Speedway in the Limited Sportsman Division. He participated also when Jerry won his first modified feature in August of nineteen eighty-six. John especially loves the speed and the thrashing of the cars. Overall though, he enjoys tuning the car in order to im- prove handling and perfor- mance on the track. In the future if John’s interest con- tinues, he might well be a con- tender in the racing circuit. He definitely has all the signs of a beginning daredevil.

April plans to continue with a related job in the future, “This (experience) will give me the op- portunity to get a better job in accounting.” In this program, students were placed in selected jobs where, as employees, they put to use the knowledge and skills learned in school. Besides hav- ing to maintain good academic standing, the students had to qualify during an interview with the employer and had to suc- cessfully complete job training. Students were dismissed early from school to attend their jobs, received wages for their work and earned credit towards graduation. Most important, the program provided the op- portunity for students to ex- plore their own talents and in- terests. Working with others helped them to develop their own personalities as well as to sharpen their interpersonal skills. Taking part in this pro- gram made the adjustment from high school to the world of work less frightening. 43 Challenging Choices Members of the class of 1987 found an outlet for their originality both inside and out- side of school. For some, the need to be themselves was ex- pressed in diverse and in- teresting hobbies. Scott Malin indulged in model rocketry, a hobby his cousin introduced him to over five years ago. Over the years, his enthusiasm has led him to interests in physics and aeronautical engineering. In contrast, Jim Malloy set himself apart from the crowd by bow- hunting when in season.

But after careful observation, variant methods of “cramming” became obvious. For some, studying for a test started a day before. For others, the night before, or even the day of the test was the most popular. Preparation for the act of studying varied. Many students seemed to think and study better if they had on the radio or their favorite tape, whereas others preferred the SITTING AROUND THE kitchen table, Kristin Fuller and Samara Perdue compare notes as they study together for an up-and-coming test.

WHEN COMPARED TO Humphrey Bogart or Indiana Jones, Mr. Sweet protests and says, “I dress the way I do because I like to.” ▼ Profile: Although Mr. Sweet may not be unique in his love for teaching, he is atypical in his attire. Students can not help but notice what he wears. According to Mr. Sweet, he dresses as he does because he likes to! Mr. Sweet shops from Banana Republic, which specializes in the safari look. He also frequents the American Eagle. He does not favor one style, and he claims to be comfor- table in jeans and flannel shirts — the casual look.

A physical education teacher at Fermi since 1974, Miss Sullivan has coached winning teams in field hockey, varsity softball and junior varsity basketball. In choosing the girls to play on the team, Miss Sullivan does not just look for natural ability but also considers good attitude, ambi- tion, a love for the sport, will- ingness to work and determina- tion. These individual qualities when combined with each girl’s talent and a skilled coach create a winning team. MISS SULLIVAN CAN often be seen encourag- ing and lending instruction to her players on the field. She usually doesn’t get upset as long as the players follow her directions. ► SHE HAS REASON TO SMILE. Her softball team has been CCIL champs and have qualified for state tournaments ten out of thirteen years. Her field hockey teams have gone to the quarter finals four times and to the semi-finals twice. In 1985, they were CCC-E Champions, and also in ’85, Miss Sullivan was awarded the Class L. Coach of the Year Award. ▼ Miss JoAnne Cardell Mrs. Susan Cirillo Mrs. Judith Creedon Mr. Richard Chapman Mr. Donald Charland Miss Mary Civale Mrs. Mary Gail Cokkinias Mr. Peter Creedon Mr. Roderick Crochiere Mr. James Cherry Mrs. Maureen Condron Ms. Monica de Haan 66 A MR.

DePINO AND TEST engineer Angel Jaquez of Kaman Aerospace Corp. discuss testing of a newly designed helicopter tail rotor blade. Do you like your summer job? Mr. DePino, a physics teacher at Fermi does. For the last three years he has been involved with a summer work program sponsored by the Connecticut Business and Industry Association called the Program for Distinguished Teachers. This program helped place Mr. DePino at Kaman Aerospace, Tor- rington Company, and the nuclear engineering department of North- east Utilities. At these work sites he applied his knowledge of physics to real problems. He ex- perimented with helicopter rotors at Kaman, worked with lasers and holography at Torrington, and designed a computer program; which graphically displays com- puter output data from a reactor core and makes it easier to design and analyze fuel cycle loadings. Mr. DePino feels that these work experiences will make physics a more interesting subject for students because he can show the usefulness of what he teaches. He also plans on using actual problems he has worked on as assignments and class discussions.

He enjoys the feel of the out- doors and the sense of getting back to nature. ◄ SNOWBUNNY GARVEY, on the summit of Mt. McKinley at 20,000 ft., enjoys a cup of instant civilization. His sense of adventure does not diminish even at subzero temperatures. i WHILE WAITING TO FLY to the I Kahiltna Glacier, Mr. Garvey stands by his I plane in Tallceetna, Alaska. He takes time J to pose for a picture in his alluring ski • pants. ► Profile: For some, excitement is a round of golf or a game of tennis. For Mr. Garvey, an English teacher at Enrico Fermi, it is an adventure that taps man’s endurance. In the summer of 1984 he conquered Mount McKinley, 20,230 feet above sea level. McKinley is located in the wilds of Alaska in an environment that rarely escapes the Arctic cold. In preparation for his trek he purchased $2,000 worth of the best equipment made to withstand the snow, wind, and cold. Then he and his climbing party of nine met in Talkietna, Alaska, boarded a bush plane, and flew to Denali National Park. He then received instruction and training from a professional guide. Despite severe winds and a thirty-six hour snow storm at 1 1,000 feet, the party reached the summit in two weeks. Here they remained for twenty minutes, amid thirty mile an hour winds, before descending the opposite side by way of a crevice laced glacier. Beside traveling to Mount McKinley Mr. Garvey has traveled around Europe and Australia (where he taught for two years). He hopes to continue his travels in the future and now dreams of Hawaii, Cozumel and the Grand Cayman. 69 Mrs. Cathy LaTaille Mrs. Florence Lyons Mr. John Kouba Mr. James Laudato Mr. John Lyons Mr. Raymond LaFlamme Mr. Robert Lengyel Ms. Mary Mackley Mrs. Eugenie Langhome Mr. Kenneth Lessard Mr. Richard Mankus ( 1 ! I I t i I I I Profile: After having been stopped for speeding in his youth, Fermi automotive teacher, Richard Chap- man, decided he may as well receive compensation for his love of high speeds. Initially he did this racing motorcycles. Then he graduated to modified coupes. In 1974, after twenty years, Mr. Chapman retired from the track and joined the New England Antique Races, a vintage race car club. From eight to twelve meets are held each year throughout New England and New York. Each driver maintains their cars at their own expense and any proceeds made by the Club are donated to charities. Mr. Chapman’s love for racing has added a challenge to his life as well as benefitted countless children and 70 students. A ORIGINALLY BUILT by Bob Stefanik, 20 was restored by Mr. Chapman and Bob Polverare in memory of Joe Czainicki and Bob Stefanik. 12, a Ford Flathead modified, was originally raced at Riverside. It was restored by Fermi students. ALSO BUILT BY FERMI students, this ’72 Toyota is a four cylinder mini-modified race car. Mr. Chapman has raced it at Riverside and Hopkington. ► ◄ MANY ORANGE “RE- ELECT KINER” signs and bumper stickers could be seen throughout the district before the election last fall. MR. KINER SMILES as he receives a unique reply to one of his questions. He always keeps a cheery disposition even with his hectic schedule. ▼ Profile: Mr. Kiner believes that if you want something done and you see that it is not being accomplished — instead of complaining, ACT! That is exactly what he did ten years ago. For five terms, he has served on the state legislature. For eighteen years he has been a teacher. Mr. Kiner believes that the legislature enhances his teaching ability. He likes students to be in- terested in what he has to say about the government because it helps them understand more about the country in which they live. It makes him hap- py to see them actively taking part in society. Mr. Kiner says that he will continue to run for re-election and continue his teaching career. Mrs. Teresa Marek Mr. Raymond Mercik Mr. Joseph Nuccio Mrs. Mary Massey Mrs. Henrietta Montagna Mr. Joseph Occhiuti Ms. Donna McCarthy Mrs. Elizabeth Nicholls Mr. Steven Olson Mr. Richard McCarthy Mrs. Lois Norman Mr. Thomas Ouellette Profile: There is a horseman on the F er- mi staff! Mr. Batista, a business education teacher, presently has a stable of twenty-five horses. Own- ing horses was a natural thing that blossomed after he bought one for his wife twenty years ago. In 1970, he opened a stable in Brimfield, Massachusetts. While attending auctions at night, he learned to become more selective in his pur- chases. Presently, Mr. Batista trains, buys, sells, exchanges and boards a wide variety of horseflesh. His favorite is a stallion called Armadillo who stands eighteen hands. In Mr. Batista’s words, “he’s fast and has a heck of a personality.’’ WHILE STANDING OUTSIDE THE main arena, Zanzabar enjoys the brisk weather. No longer racing because of a pulled tendon, this four year old is being trained to jump. ► ARMADILLO CANTERS AROUND THE arena with tail in the air and head held high. High for this horse is about seven feet. Armadillo is a good polo horse because he likes to participate and en- joys the competition.

She only observed the school for two days but this picture captures everything she noticed in the students; their intelligence, pride, and mischievousness. ◄ MRS. STOLL, DURING a visit to Thailand, gets her picture taken in front of a Buddhist Temple while other tourists stroll by. Inside the temple is a gold Buddha which had been encased in concrete and plaster to hide its true value. One day the Buddha was acciden- tally dropped, a chip in the outer shell revealed the hidden treasure beneath. Profile: Mrs. Stoll, an English teacher at Fermi, has an avocation — travel. In 1984 she went to China to ex- perience firsthand the culture. It made her feel as if she was in another world, being exposed to an entirely different lifestyle. Mrs. Stoll described this country as be- ing totally un-Americanized and she found the people timid yet in awe of American faces. Mrs. Stoll’s interest in travel stems from her curiosity to see and to learn. When asked where else she has been, her reply was “Do you want me to hand you a list?” Her “curiosity” has carried her to North Africa, Europe, Central and South America, and India is next on her list. Summing up her travels, Mrs. Stoll has realized that despite the very different governments and styles, people no matter where they’re from, are basically the same. It is such realizations that continue her infatuation with the world and inspire her to travel again.

No more waiting to be picked up from the movies, no more taking the bus home, no more parent-driven dates. The only thing standing be- tween freedom and dependence was a driver’s license. The complexities of obtaining this plastic-wrapped permission slip were frequently frustrating. Drivers Education, either inside or outside of school, was almost a must. (It lowers the insurance rate.) Then, on the road training and parallel parking occupied many after-school hours. Finally came THE TEST and a registry man accompanied you down Elm Street to Route 5 and back again. The high of passing or the low of failing made the minutes pass like hours. Last, but painful for most, was the in- surance bill which frequently necessitated an after-school job. But despite all this, we were free at last!

To Work or Not to Work? Junior year was the year for first jobs. Finally sixteen, we proceeded to punch-in and make some money of our own. For some, the money was a necessity: gas for the car or college tuition. For others, a paycheck was simply a luxury. The range of businesses to which we applied was quite diverse. Some worked in fast food places — Burger King, Wendy’s, or Roy Rogers’. The more fortunate among us worked at Hayden Wayside, Abdow’s or Steigers where working conditions were a little less harried. For some, work interfered with school. Plenty of resignations were handed in because of a busy junior schoolwork load. However, most of us did stick it out and continue to receive healthy paychecks. Although we managed to control time and use it wisely, we tended to complain a lot in the beginning: “I have two tests tomorrow and I have to work!” or “I HATE this job!” Regardless, our new jobs and the money we made allowed us to take a small peek at the working world. We gained a better understanding of ourselves and other wage earners and began to think serious- ly about our future. 89 SOPH BSm V ▲ SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS: (left to right) Carrie Forino; Vice President, Wen-;, dy Pace; Treasurer, Sarah Bourgault; Secretary, Jamie Tenero; Historian, Brian Austin;:] President, Brett Manco; Director of Activities. ◄ “I CANT BELIEVE IT,” exclaims John Kane, “Mom didn’t give me enough lunch ; money HOMEROOM: A216 First row: Stacie Cruickshanks, Julie Chase, Laurel Cox, Diane Jensen, Lisa Collins, Timothy Chagnon, Patricia Corto, Manon Cham- pigny, Juliet Ceresky, Andrea Coleman, Pauline Chwalek, Dara Climan.

The first days of high school in reshman year were frequently iced with anxiety, confusion, and ‘faux-pas. ” The corridors esembled a maze, one floor esembled another, and the hereabouts of “B” and “D” yings were questions frequently isked of upperclassmen willing to jssist. Where did that tall, jophisticated student body come rom? I Elbowing a path to a locker, •raying it would open, exchanging exts and notebooks, and fighting 0 make your next class within the Hotted five minutes seemed an impossible task. (How many teachers can make it from A3 16 to B 100 in three hundred seconds?) The classes were bigger, the teachers were more demanding, and the days were longer. Finally, at 2 p.m. bell, the last struggles oc- curred; the sprint from class to locker and the search for the bus. As the months passed, the geography of Fermi was learned, short cuts were found, and friend- ships begun. Techniques for un- jamming a locker were mastered. The frightening first week became a thing of the past. ▲ KEVIN CONSTANTINE carefully checks the morning announcements which are displayed on the homeroom bulletin board. ◄ FRIENDSHIPS MADE DURING high school days frequently last a life time.

At Fermi this year one actually I ' isited the cafeteria where Food Services losted preschoolers at a brunch. Christmas 1986 at Fermi was ushered in by the young and the elderly, the festive and generous. Once more Toys for Tots col- lected gifts to ensure Santa visited all children in Enfield. Two Christmas brunches were hosted by Food Service. One feasted preschoolers and was at- tended by the man in red. The other hosted the elderly of the community. Not to be left out of the festivities, Fermi’s Student Faculty Senate held its first Christmas Dance.

The beating of drums . . . the marching of feet . . . the ringing of the trumpet . . . blue and black against a field of green — the Fer- mi Marching Band is on parade. 1986-1987 was another busy and event filled year beginning with the University of Connecticut’s field competition on band day in which Fermi placed third and en- ding with commencement exercise in June. Between these events, the band marched in Hartford on Armistice Day and again in the Homecoming Parade. A video tape of this latter event has been sent to the Orange Bowl Committee in Florida for review. Hopefully Fermi will earn an opportunity to participate in the King Orange Jamboree Parade in December of 1 987. Once again this year, the band thrilled shoppers at their Christmas concert at Enfiiill Square and added the final toi ii of festivity to the school l if mosphere at the school ChristniVI concert. It ushered in Spring at ; Annual Spring Concert and prt| sion marched in Hartford’s I Patrick’s Day Parade. Finally band attended the Festival f Music 1987, at Virginia Beach. | Outstanding contributors to i) ' success of this year’s band p J gram include; Dan Berry, Anne Houle and Erin Mackie on drums, Dwane Sanders on trombone, Laura Miller and ToB Parsnow on the saxophone.

Traces 1987 “Dare to Be Noticed” Traces 1987 was written and compiled in a genuine effort to pay tribute to the individuality in each of us. It was not intended to minimize the value of uniform teamwork or ideals, but rather to be a broad statement testifying to the right of all to be unique. To this end, a variant staff strived to create a unified memen- to that incorporated exclusive ideas, each reflecting their views of Enrico Fermi High School. Senior editors Kathy Butte worth, Daryl Gordon, and Cine Kita have attempted to depict tl diversity of members of the Senior class. While undercla editors, Gina Alaimo and Lori Ar Neild, searched the halls of Ferr for underclassmen, organize morning homeroom pictures ar interviewed many regarding the feeling about high school durii ▲ YEARBOOK STAFF: First Row: Kathy Butterworth, Cin- dy Kita, Gina Alaimo, Daryl Gor- don, Kristin Fuller, Janice Wiener.

Model United Nations This years Model U.N. group was large (20), active and in- volved. Fermi, representing Chile, Italy, and Algeria, was one of approximately thirty-five schools at the Model U.N. ses- sions the last weekend in February. The student representatives met and questioned the real U.N. representatives from Algeria and Chile. Our representative John Stroiney, went to a leadership training session in Hartford to prepare him for to rappateur at the Political Committee. But when the Model U.N. convened on Friday, January thirtieth, the chairperson was absent and John was suddenly Chairman of a very lively, argumentative group of over one hundred students. He came through beautifully! Of the four resolutions that our representatives wrote, two were passed by the delegates of their committee.

During their escapades, the group of future Einsteins ex- perimented with different laws of the universe, appropriately called Newton’s laws of physics. They accelerated to find velocities, electrified to find currents, and forced to find weights of objects. Throughout the year, the Physics Club learned many things that were expanded from their daily lessons. Even though the group worked hard to learn new ideas, they had fun at the same time. It was exciting to learn how the laws of physics were applied to everyday life but not too many people learn why the world works the way it does. ■ MARCEL REY OF THE PHYSICS CHI, ' attempts to break the U.S. tennis ball swal - ' ing record.

Founded by the advisor Mr. Sweet in the Fall of 1986, the Fine Arts Club provided students the op- portunity to appreciate various types of cultural entertainment. Members of the club, as well as in- terested students and teachers, were given the chance to attend plays, musicals, films and exhibits in both Connecticut and Massachusetts. At every meeting, members discussed and voted on which activity to view next. Among the most memorable plays seen was “Progress,” a contemporary com- edy about the relationships between men and women.

Responsible for the management of the school store as well as representing Fermi and the state and national level, DECA members had a year filled with activity. A fall candy sale, senior class tee-shirt sale and several flower sales wer held to raise money. From the proceeds, DECA funded its annual Installation Banquet for incoming juniors. In November several members organized and ran a senior class fashion show, a highlight of the winter season fc ' all members of the student body.

Yes and no. These are the sounds of student managed Cafe Rendezvous. “Good food, good cooking, good eating” could easily be the motto of Home Economic Related Occupa- tions. Members of this club enrolled in the Food Service program have had the opportunity, through Cafe Rendezvous, Muncheonette and numerous other catered banquets, to participate and experience all phases of the food industry excluding buy- ing, preparing and serving. Along with their outstanding school based programs, this year’s Food Service members catered the Homecoming breakfast, a Santa’s brunch for tots and a Christmas brunch for the elderly. They also hosted two in- novative pizza parties; one for automotives and another for chorus. As in the past, they cooked and serv- ed at the DECA and FBLA installa- tions and the Student Faculty Senate Breakfast. Outstanding contributors to this year’s program include Dave Koszma, Michael LeClaire and Dave Lezat. All three represented HERO at the Winterfest at town hall. Their dedication and hard work before, during and after events helped make this year’s program a success.

Members of the Triathlon Club started training, for the race on June 28, on March 1. The race consists of a Vi mile swim, a 25 mile bike ride, and a 6.2 mile run. During training Mr. Garvey, the advisor, said they ran an average of 28 miles, swam up to 3 miles, and hiked 200 miles a week.

They possessed a fine 6-3-1 record; the Falcon’s first winning cam- paign since 1977. With wins over Rockville and crosstown rival, En- field High, the team also set a school record for most wins in a season. The Falcons have been a vf i exciting team to follow this p; year.

For the third con- secutive year, Fermi’s varsity cheerleaders captured the grand championship at the an- nual International Cheerleading Founda- tion at the University of Connecticut in Storrs. During the four days spent at sum- mer camp, the cheerleaders sweated through exhausting hours of aerobic exer- cise and practice. Their commitment to ex- cellence yielded the coveted first place award. For co-captains Tina Parakilas and Karen Beaudry, an added vi ctory was achieved when they were chosen from among the 200 girls competing to be on the five-member elite squad. ► 176 y I Cheerleaders Fermis’ Squad Reflects the Changing Sport When cheerleading first began, e principal purpose was to entice e crowd to become involved in e game. Although the intention remains the same, cheerleading has taken on a new dimension, thus making today’s cheerleaders noticeably different. They possess a new style accented by human pyramids, sharp precise motions, dance routines, and gymnastic ability. Today cheerleading has evolved into a sport and both state and national competitions are held to award the achievements of various squads. At these events cheerleaders are judged on height and style of pyramids, clearness of words, and synchronization. Then executing a cheer, the motions must be sharp, causing an eye- opening effect. By comparing the past with modern cheerleaders, the change in style is readily apparent. Squads have advanced to become more athletic and precise, using clever techniques to entertain and in- teract with the fans. Although cheerleading has changed drastic- ally over the years, it still remains an essential part of a Saturday afternoon football game. — Tina Parakilas ▲ (left) CHEERLEADING IS NOT ALL GLAMOROUS, but despite the rain, Lanette Melquist, Kim Major and Karen Beaudry retain as much poise as possible and encourage the football teams to keep plugging.
