Take a look at the students, the faculty, the activities, and organizations that make FRA what it is. And now that the school has passed that impor- tant fifteenth anniversary, pause, just once in a while, to take a look back into FRA's past. The past can be the key to understanding the present and the future. Perhaps there is no better time during a school year to begin reminiscing than at a Homecoming game. "Let the Good Times Roll", the theme of this year's Homecoming. was just what everyone did. Al- though the Wildcats lost a disap- pointing game to the Meadow Creek Chargers, all was forgotten as everyone stepped onto the dance floor following the game. The stu- dents and alumni who attended all enjoyed the wide variety of music provided by Orpheus. The Seniors worked hard to make the gym come alive with decora- tions. They used colored streamers, balloons, and glittered music notes and letters to set the mood for plen- ty of fun and "good times". The score at halftime, 24-O, had spirits low, but excitement built with the crowning of the l982 Homecoming Queen and her court. Especially happy were Gay Garrett. the newly crowned queem Meri Reames, first runner up, Kim Seay, second runner ups and Susie Dunn, third runner up. All were Seniors. Freshman Mollie Battenhouse re- ceived the fourth runner up trophy. l. Gay Garrett hugs escort. Gerald Ordoyne. after being announced Homecoming Queen. 2.

This year marked a new beginning for Flint River Academy. The school en- tered into its sixteenth year under the leadership of a new headmaster, Dr. Felix Turner. The students and teachers found that the new year promised many changes. To start the new year, an Open House was held on Sunday, August 29, the day before the first day of school. The wide participation of parents, faculty, and students made this Open House serve its purpose well. Everyone who attended was able to get acquainted with the school itself, new students, teach- ers. and the new headmaster. This day gave new parents a chance to meet the headmaster, school board. and the teachers. Another factor adding to the suc- cess of the Open House was the delivering of the l98l-82 Prowlers. The students had been waiting all summer for the day when they would receive their Prowlers. Ex- citement could be seen in the faces of everyone as they looked back over the past year and anticipated the next year to come. l.

He began his first yeat as headmaster at FRA, and his wife, Mrs. Carolyn Turner, began her first year as choral direc- tor at FRA. Dr. Turner started the new year with some frustrating mo- ments. Attempting to remember the students' names and faces, placing everyone in a scholastic environ- ment in order to provide an aca- demic atmosphere, and learning his way around his new hometown. Woodbury, Ga. were lust a few ex- amples. Some new faces in the upper school were the drama director, Miss Cheryl Scamihorn, the head football coach, Coach John Tram- mell, and his wife, Mrs. Freda Tram- mell. Mrs. Trammell is the cheer- leading sponsor as well as a math teacher. In the lower school there were also new faces. Mrs. Beverly Brisindine and Mrs. Connie Mc- Adams were two new elementary teachers. FRA began this new year with its Iargest enrollment ever. There were many new students in both the upper and lower school. Many of the new faces came from Westwood Academy which closed its high school early in the year. I.

X an I ,I What's Newf7 A New Year With the leadership provided by the faculty and the cooperation from the students. the new year was off to a great beginning. As ev- eryone joined into the swing of things the excitement and tension at the newness slowly ebbed away, but the joy and happiness remained. All of the changes in the i982-S3 year, a new headmaster, some new teachers, and many new students. made the school seem different. Even though there were a great many changes, one thing remained the same. This is the desire to learn and to be prepared for whatever is to come in the future. With the guidance of Dr. Turner and new teachers came new ideas and features. One addition was the assembly held every Thursday. This gave students and teachers a break from the usual school day and pro- vided a chance to relax as well as learn. Many new courses were of- fered including creative writing. guidance and testing, psychology. health. and communications. ln the lower school, changes also took place. For the first time these stu- dents were able to participate in Spanish and art. Flint River Acade- my's sixteenth year was another year with improvements for the bettering of college preparatory education. l.

The I982 Fall Festival started off "with a splash" with the return of the ever-popular dunking booth. The booth, indeed, was the main at- traction. Young and old alike gath- ered around to submerge Coach El- lis, Coach Trammell, Eddie Wells, Bob Dunn, Butch Gill, and several of FRA's seniors into ice cold water. The Fall Festival, though it re- quired planning and much hard work, was a big success. The event was held for the first time on a Sat- urday from four to ten. Several fac- tors contributed to the festival's success. There were a variety of games - video games, bingo, and cake walk. The Sweet Shop and Christmas Shop attracted scores of people. For those brave and daring souls, who wished for a little excite- ment, the seniors prepared a spooky "Horror House". No one could forget the main event of the night - the crowning of the Fall Festival kings and queens. Bake sales, raffles, and car washes were some of the methods used in raising money. Each class had a king and queen representative, but only the one raising the most money could be crowned. From the lower school, the king and queen were Todd Lane and Tiffany Sherrer, re- presenting Mrs. Akins' third grade. The upper school king and queen were Waide Fleming and Lisa Bent- ley, representing the ninth grade. I. Coach Ellis is ready and willing to take another plunge into ice cold water. 2.

Most FRA stu- dents participated by wearing out- fits that coincided with the theme of the day. This event is an annuai tradition sponsored by the cheer- leaders to get everyone upsyched up" for the game. . The cheerleaders awarded prizes each day. Donna Howard, Mark Carlson, Scott Bomar, and Dana Walker were ail decked out for Hobo Day in their baggy jeans and ragged shirts.

Jim Dunn, and Melinda Garrison were outstanding in their mini skirts. sparkling tennis shoes, and far-out hair-dos.

As a look from the past, Tracy Clark, Allen Ward, Julie Bryant, and Greg Brown were swinging with the 50 's on 50 's Day. The last day was Color Day so everyone wore black and gold. On this day certificates were awarded to the classes with one hundred percent participation. The proud winners were: fifth grade, sixth grade. eighth grade, and eleventh grade.

At The C.P, Fair Take a look and you will see stu- dents, faculty, and parents in Gay, Georgia on the first weekends of October and May. For what can be more exciting than the Cotton Pickin' Antiques. Arts, and Crafts Fair. This fair, originated by Bill F. Gay. has been a big event in the life of FRA for more than ten years. Crews of parents work hard staffing the Deli and Barbeque. Bob Dunn. Charles Rogers, Fred Brisendine. and many others stayed up all night cooking chicken. As a result of these efforts, the Flint River Deli raised more money this year than ever - almost SILK. The deli was not the only place you saw FRA students, however. They could be found working in maintenance jobs, coke booths, or family, church, and business booths. Those who were not working, to the distress of their parents, were spending money on crafts and deli- cious food, or just walking around greeting friends and listening to the country music. A very important event in the life of FRA - the sights and sounds of the Cotton Pickin' Fair. l. Flint River students can even be found working at the gate.

The students worked at jobs ranging from grocery stores to pepper plants. Many of the students attended camps and through hard work and practice improved their skills. Members of the Drill Team could attend camp at either Mercer or West Georgia colleges. The work was very hard but proved helpful to the members with their routines. The cheerleaders attended camp at Tift College. The cheerleading squads won a maiority of awards at camp. The three squads were. Var- sity, Jr. Varsity, and Jr. High. For the first time, the football team attended a camp held at Geor- gia Southern College. Many mem- bers of the team agreed that camp was not all fun and games but they agreed the hard work paid off dur- ing the season. Gay Garrett, Jeffrey Todd, Leigh Ann Coker, Simone Rogers, Susan Dees. and Mrs. Voyles. members of the Prowler Staff, attended a work- shop at Auburn University. The staff members competed with sixty other schools in layout design and theme development. The Prowler Staff came out on top and won a Canon AF35M camera. l.

Halloween was the first holiday cele- brated at school. On this fun-filled day all the elemen- tary children enjoyed dressing up and going trick-or- treating. The kindergarten enjoyed a Halloween party at Mrs. Lemmon's barn complete with games, a witch and her witch's brew, and lots of goodies. On Thanks- giving the younger students held a thanksgiving feast at the Woodbury Baptist Church with senior citizens. Afterwards a program in which the kindergarten por- trayed lndians and the first grade portrayed Pilgrims was given at schooi. At Christmastime everyone joined into the spirit of giving as the elementary children drew names and the high school students brought small gifts for friends. Santa Claus also visited in the lower school and the younger children were able to sit in his lap and tell what they wanted for Christmas. A very special time at FRA was Grandparents' Day, held in February. Cn this day grandparents of the kindergar- ten students were special guests for a program and refreshments. Then, right around the corner was Valen- tine's Day. Everyone enjoyed exchanging valentines and cute cards on this day. In the lower school parties were held and everyone stuffed themselves with all sorts of goodies. For the high school students the Sweetheart Sock Hop was held and everyone loved dancing to the music of DJ John Alexander from WVOC. The final holiday was Easter. The elementary students were delighted to be able to bring colored eggs from home and have an egg hunt at school. Each of these holidays at FRA added something extra to routine schedules and helped in making a more exciting year. l. Matt Fuller decorates the Christmas tree at his house for the tour of homes. 2.

To start off the year, the Tri-Hi-Y reestablished their ties with the state organization, the YMCA. By holding a bake sale, the club raised Slw which they contributed to the YMCA's World Fund. The Tri-Hi-Y's first project was the annual canned food drive at Thanksgiving. The Tri- Hi-Y asked that each student bring at least three cans. Approximately BG? cans were collected and given to the Meriwether County Department of Family and Chil- dren's Services. These were placed in reserve to be distributed to needy families. At Christmastime the Tri-Hi-Y collected toys and gifts for children who would not have received gifts. The Meriwether Department of Family and Children's Services was very grateful for the club's help in this project. In February the club sponsored the Sweetheart Sock- hop for the second consecutive year. DJ John Alex- ander from WVOC entertained everyone, and stu- dents, faculty, and parents had a great time. The Tri-Hi-Y also ordered jerseys this year. They were white with red letters and trim. Each member was able to get her name, nickname, or whatever she want- ed on the back, and also her choice of numbers. Every- one was well pleased with the jerseys as they were very sharp-looking for wearing with jeans and slacks. A project that the Tri-Hi-Y carried on throughout the year was Happy Monday. Each Monday three or four members brought sweets and placed them in the teach- ers' lounge. The teachers were grateful to the club for their efforts and enjoyed the results. The final project of the Tri-Hi-Y was the annual bike- a-thon, held in May, which they co-sponsored with the Key Club. The funds raised were donated to St. Jude's Hospital and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I. Coach Ellis enjoys the Sweetheart Sockhop. 2.

The club motto is, "To make the best better." This year at Flint River there were three branches of 4-H: The Clo- verleafs, which are fifth and sixth gradersg the Junior 4-H, which is seventh, eighth, and ninth graders, and a Senior 4-H which is tenth grade and up. In addition there were several special interest clubs here at Flint River: the gun club, livestock judging teams, steer and heifer clubs, and also a horse club. The 4-H people at Flint River won many awards dur- ing l982-l983.

Beirirerf 1 mf- Q K 5 Y f 4-H Hard work and cooperation between student and faculty are necessary to become a member of the honor societies. A semester average of 90 or above is re- quired for membership and each member must be ap- proved by the faculty. The honor societies sponsor the annual field day at Flint River. Interesting assemblies are planned and ar- ranged by the societies throughout the year. On April 2l, twenty two new members were inducted into the National Junior Honor Society. These students from seventh, eighth, and ninth grades were: Christie Bat' tenhouse, Julie Booth. Angie Branch, Leanne Carlisle, Callie Fowler, Dan Fuller, Jamie Gramling, Anise Morri- son, Tom Persons, Stephanie Pryor, Don Voyles, Mi- chele Wetmore, Karen Baily. Lisa Bently, Brent Bryant, Ashley Garrett, Todd Harvey, Amy Sarsfield, Jodie Strickiand and Laura Edwards. On this same day eleven new members were induct- ed into the National Honor Society. These students from tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades were. Lisa Brown, Frank Gill, Jon Grover, Kathy McGinn, Henry Persons, Lisa Phillips, Cher Mills, Bobbie Jo Shaw, Mar- garet Tinsley, Leia Llpton, and Emily Vincent. Membership into both societies becomes a challenge each semester. Meeting this challenge is worth the effort when students become members of this elite group. i.

Also, five members, along with Mrs. Voyles, attended a workshop at Auburn during the summer. While there, they learned basic information about creating the yearbook. The members had to compete with sixty schools and came out on top to win a Canon Sure Shot AF35mm camera for creating the best layout design and the best theme. To help with their annual sales, the Prowler staff hosted one of the monthly PTO meetings. During the meeting they told a little about the i983 yearbook and presented a slide show as a preview. The staff then showed the slide show at school during one of the weekly assemblies to encourage all students to buy an annual. The annual staff's major project this year was the Miss FRA pageant, which they cosponsored with the newspaper staff. This event was the biggest money- making project of the two staffs, and was once again a big success as well as a great deal of fun. In May the staff attended the Georgia Scholastic Press Association's annual workshop at the University of Georgia's Grady School of Journalism. At the GSPA workshop they again entered the statewide yearbook competitions. Though award announcements will be after the yearbook is printed, the staff hoped to repeat the i982 staff's statewide win of theme presentation. This was the first time that FRA had won in these GSPA competitions open to all schools in Georgia, both public and private. l. Susan Dees finishes her layout. 2, Yearbook staff. Sandy Grubbs.

Of the ten members there were only two veterans. ln a sense the whole staff had to be rebuilt. They all knew they had a lot of work to learn in a short time. The Informer staff first studied journalism and tech- nique. After that was mastered, they went on to more difficult things like writing a lead story. They all learned this in a very short period of time. Mr. Lewin was the Informer staff adviser. He set goals for the staff, like how many papers they would print. This year the staff printed eight papers. To print a paper it takes many weeks of hard work and writing. After the staff has everything written, they take their stories to Thomaston for paste-up. This is where the paper is actually put together. lt took the Flint River staff about five hours to put together a paper. The paper usually has in it some of the following stories: what's happening in Flint River sports, activi- ties that are going on in the school, and the senior spotlight. One thing that was constant all year was the MABEC ad of Tommy Mathews' father. The entire staff agrees on one thing, they believed that the class would help them in the future in the field of journalism. l. Hynes Barnes points out a problem with Meri Reames' copy. 2.

This was her first year of working with the music department at Flint River Academy. The Ensemble, a new group, was formed by Mrs. Turner and she did a great job with them. The members of the Ensemble were Meri Reames, Simone Rogers.Kim Seay. Susie Dunn, Tracy Maddox, Hunter Adkins, .lef- frey Todd, Jeff Smith, and David Fagundes. They gave spectacular performances at school and community ac- tivities throughout the year. The Choraliers also had great performances through- out the year. The Choraliers and Ensemble journeyed to Lenox Square at Christmas to sing for shoppers. They chose section leaders to guide them through the year. The section leaders were Simone Rogers for soprano, Donna Howard for alto, David Fagundes for tenor, and Jeff Frazier for bass. The Choraliers ended the year with the knowledge that they performed to their best ability. The Chorus sang at many different places this year. They sang with the Choraliers at the Warm Springs Rehabilitation Center at Christmas. The Chorus select- ed leaders for each section. They were Sonya Gasses. soprano section, Stephanie Bomar, alto section, David Manning, tenor section, and Brad Gregg, bass section. l.

The Key Club provides service at Flint River Academy. Providing leadership and service to the school and community, the Flint River Academy Key Club had another busy year. The membership of the Key Club grew to twenty-four during the i982-83 school year with the addition of six new members. In May, the Key Club held its annual Bike-a-Thon with the cooperation of the Tri-Hi-Y at Lake Meriwether. The proceeds were donated to St. .lude's Children's Research Hospital. With the help of many riders and sponsors, over S4w was raised for the charity. Refresh- ments were furnished to the people who participated in the Bike-a-Thon. Again this year the Key Clubbers ordered jerseys. This year the jerseys were black with silver trim, and they added a touch of class to the students in the hall. as well as to the school itself. A tradition was started at Flint River Academy this year. lt was electing girls that would serve as the I982- 83 Key Club Sweethearts. Members of the Key Club at Flint River Academy realized that helping others and having fun can be combined at the same time. l.

The one-act play started early in the school year prac- ticing long and hard hours after school. The one-act play placed first in 2-AA region and first in state. Mem- bers of the one-act play cast were: Jeffery Todd, Susie Dunn, Gay Garrett. Meri Reames, David Fagundes, Don- na Howard, Simone Rogers, Cliff Elliott, and Stacey Collins. The group was under the direction of Miss Cheryl Scamihorn. David Fagundes was recognized for his performance in the play at state with the best actor award. This year's play was titled Spoon River. The cast portrayed people in a cemetery telling of their lives. their mistakes, and their achievements in life. Sometimes, a clever answer solves a crisis. Some of the people at Flint River Academy who are able to think quickly on their feet and defeat their opponents with a logical retort are on the i982-83 Flint River Academy Debate team. The skilled team made a convincing showing at the 2-AA Region Debate Tournament. The team was composed of seniors to sophomores. The debate team members were Jeffery Todd, Gerald Or- doyne, Debbie Burns, Leigh Ann Coker, Gay Garrett, Liz Livingston, and Cliff Elliott. They placed first in region and second in state, giving FRA a big lead on the other schools in the region and state for literary. The coach and sponsor of the debate team was Mrs. Carroll Fowler. l.

Donna, a junior. was nominated by the faculty for this highly coveted award. After being nominated, Don- na was interviewed by the Governor's Honor's Commit- tee, and based on this interview and her high school record, she was chosen to represent FRA in the field of math. This summer Donna will participate in a six weeks program at North Georgia College in Dahionega where she will take part in an intensified study of math. This is a great opportunity for Donna as well as a real honor for her and her school. Several FRA students were selected to be in the i982- 83 edition of Who's Who Among American High School Students and Who's Who in Music. In order to be eligi- ble for Who's Who, a student must be a junior or a senior, be nominated by the faculty, and be in the top third of his class. This is a very prestigious award and a great honor to all those who receive it. I. Donna Howard is pictured with her math teacher Mrs. Barnes. 2. Senior members of Who's Who!

The team also outscored all other schools in their AA division by 290 points and topped the AAA schools by 84 points. Stratford of Macon was the top AAA school. The Math Bowl competition was held at Georgia Southwestern College in Americus on February 4th. ln addition to team honors, Gerald Ordoyne received a medal for highest individual score on the written exam and has received this award for the second time, while Gay Garrett received the second highest individ- ual score. The team members agree that all this could not have been done without the dedication and leader- ship of Mrs. Kay Barnes. State Science Bowl was also held at Georgia South- western College on November 22 in Americus. Five students made up the Flint River team that took a ninty- five question multiple choice test. Besides testing at the Science Bowl, the students and teachers got to attend laboratory workshops of their own choice. This gave the students an insight into college science classes and gave advisors ideas for using in their class- rooms. At the end of the day awards were given and Flint River placed second in the AA division, with Jim Battenhouse as the high scorer for Flint River two years in a row.

Competition is one factor of these special associations: seeing who can make the most original sign for the pep rallies, who can bring the most canned goods for the needy at Thanksgiving, and most importantly, who can raise the most money for the King and Queen of the Fall Festival. Enjoying each other makes class membership special. Being able to talk and sit with class members dur- ing lunch or break and being able to chat with friends between classes add to that particular sense of be- longing. Annual class projects at FRA in- cluded the juniors working together to sell and deliver fruit to pay for the Junior-Senior Prom and seniors working together toward a special Homecoming dance everyone would always remember. Classes at FRA were not limited to working in the classroom, they were involved as a group outside the homeroom door. l. Fourth grade is flying high with spirit. 2. First grader.

Classesj97 A Glqngg gl Excellence . . .A Glance at Excellence A Glu Each year at FRA a group of stu- dents who excel in certain areas are chosen as the Senior Superlatives. By secret ballot, the seniors them- selves choose both a male and fe- male representative for Most Athle- tic, Most intellectual, Most Talent- ed, and Best Personality. The entire upper school, grades 7-ll, then vote on the overall honor, Mr. and Miss Senior. Jeffrey Todd, Mr. Senior i982-83, has attended FRA for thirteen years. Susie Dunn, Miss Senior, has attended FRA for ten years. Both are very active members of the stu- dent body, participating in one-act play, ensemble, Choraliers, music literary team, annual staff, and oth- er activities. Gerald Ordoyne and Gay Garrett. Most Intellectual, have both main- tained an average of 95 plus, par- ticipated in all of FRA's academic teams, and received top honors in the state as math students. Voted Most Athletic were Rod Bridges and Linda Myrick. Rod's major sports are baseball and bas- ketball, in both he is on the starting team. Linda's major sports are soft- ball and basketball, and she is also found leading the team in starting positions. Chosen Most Talented Seniors were Richard Cook and Susie Dunn. Richard's primary talent is in art, which can be seen in the fine work he does in his art classes. Susie's primary talent is in voice, which has kept her active in FRA's music pro- gram for six years. Hank Moody and Tracy Garner received the title of Best Personal- ity. Needless to say, both can al- ways be found with smiles on their faces, cheering others up or mis- chievously plotting. I. Mr. and Miss Senior - Jeffrey Todd and Susie Dunn. 2.

After twelve long years of school- studies, sports, clubs, activities, and competitions - the seniors be- gan looking in new directions.

With such a responsibility, it was often hard to follow their hearts and have as much fun as pos- sible since they would not pass this way again. To make the most of this effort. to appease the faculty and its re- quirements. they consequently took a part in every extracurricular ac- tivity FRA offered and took advan- tage of every opportunity possible. For some this was their last chance to make good grades, to create good impressions, and to be accept- ed into a college. For others, it was the last few months of the long hard pull to be free to be themselves and not a slave to their commitments. From the classroom to the athle- tic field to literary achievements. seniors excelled and achieved, bringing recognition to the school and themselves. l.

For seniors, the choices and opportunities were numerous. Whether to go to college, to go to techni- cal school, to get a job, or to settle down to undeci- dedness were a few of the options. The pressure to make decisions increased as graduation neared, and many found themselves wondering which road to take. For along with one decision came many others, as seniors took one step closer to independence. l. Gay Garrett works the lights for the horror house while recoverf ing from the dunking booth. 2.

These college-bound stu- dents had been making plans for weeks, months, or even years, by taking the SATs writing essays, and filling out applications, While the majority finalized their college plans, others frantically tried to make that all important decision. All, however. were busy dreaming of a life of freedom, independence. and success. Because Flint River Academy in- stills the development of mind, body. and spirit, graduates face the future with strong minds. strong hearts. and confidence.

Seniors lO9 Lee Nash Bobbie Jean Reid Now is the time. ,. to say good-bye to high school and friends and, to a lesser degree, a certain part of life. No matter where life takes us from here, no matter where we go, we will never be the same as we are now. Annuals exist for reflection, reflection upon the year past and a record of memories for years to come. Now is the time to pause and recall what school has meant to us. We reflect on how school has affected each of our lives, how we have grown, what we have done or should have done. While we ponder these things, we all too often neglect the fact that we have also affected the school. We have all had an impact on our school even as it has exerted an influence on us. Now is the time for us to recall what each of us has meant to the school. Hopefully, the school has grown and benefited as much from its association with us as we have from it.

Getting it Together The junior class was really raring to go when August rolled around. Receiving their class rings, kicking off the fruit sales, and making those all-time big prom decisions were just a few of the things in store for them. Early in the year the juniors hosted a dance in the gym for the entire high school. It followed a home football game and everyone had a great time. Then came the fruit. Despite the freezing cold and dreary weather, the juniors can proudly say that they set a record for unloading fruit. It took them just two hours to unload both semi-trucks. Class sponsors "Miss Lib" and Mrs. Copeland were both very pleased with the fruit sales which totaled exactly 2000 boxes and raised S5l00, the most ever made, and with the way the juniors handled themselves. Everything was not all fun and games though. The juniors also experienced some tough academic courses. Learning how to write their first research paper pro- vided quite a challenge. Also many juniors were in- volved in the school's literary events and bowl teams. All together it was an exciting year for the juniors, one full of hard work, decisions, challenges, and fun. I.

They participated in many extra curricular acitivities to keep them busy year around. Sophomore Lisa Brown was a member of FRA's state-winning math bowl team coached by Mrs. Barnes. Jon Grover, another sopho- more, sang in FRA's quartet at literary competition. All six sophomores who played varsity football lettered. Six sophomore girls were on the region-winning softball team. Six sophomore girls were on the region-winning varsity cheerleading squad. Eight sophomore girls were on the drill team. Cole Garner played varsity basketball for the second year in a row. Four girls from this class were on the varsity girls' basketball team, including one starter, Kathy McGinn. Simone Rogers and Tracy Maddox sang in FRA's new ensemble under the direction of Mrs. Turner. Cliff Elliott and Simone Rogers were in the cast of Flint River's state- winning one-act-play. An alternate, Cliff Elliott, was on the region-winning debate team and also represented FRA in oral interpretation at literary competition. Sophomore students especially enjoyed one course. drivers' education. Taking this course showed that one had almost reached that important milestone of getting a driver's license. A special treat that sophomores were able to look forward to was ordering class rings. This was only the second time that rings were ordered during the sopho- more year. Everyone was especially excited about this becuase it meant that their rings would be back early in their junior year. The sophomores observed that their school year was more exciting than when they were younger because they were able to participate in more events. I. Eddie Wells with his sweetheart.

Q Q iff mga Q, SophomoresflI5 Headed fur the Top The l982-83 school year was an exciting one for the mighty freshman class, this was their first year of "real" high school. Beginning this year they were allowed to participate in such activities as varsity sports, literary teams, and various other extra curricular activities. The freshmen showed their intelligence as Trace Lasher, Ash- ley Garrett and Mollie Battenhouse won the honor of par- ticipating in the Humanities Bowl that captured third place at Gordon Junior College in Barnesville. Ashley Gar- rett scored the third highest in the Humanities competi- tion at the Gordon event. Being freshmen also meant that they could join the clubs in the school, freshmen became members of the Key Club. Tri-Hi-Y, 4-H, and Drama Club. Another first for the freshmen class was that they had Mrs. Barnes as their math teacher. For many this proved to be difficult. but they found that the hard work pays off. Although they knew that they probably would not make the math team, many tried out for math bowl because they knew it would help them in later years. Homecoming is always an exciting time for all classes in the upper school, it was especially exciting for the fresh- men. They elected Mollie Battenhouse and Tammy New- man as their Homecoming representatives. Mollie was chosen the fourth-runner-up in the court. The freshmen showed their strength again as Fall Festi- val came around. For the fourth year in a row, their class won the king and queen contest. They raised money by sponsoring a wide variety of activities. They conducted garage sales and newspaper drives and worked at the Concord Jubilee painting clown faces and selling fresh apples and roasted peanuts. I. A new salad bar was added to the Iunchroom, at the Fall Festival Amy Sarsfield piles it on. 2. Brad Gregg, president, John Koon, vice-president, and Bridget O'Rourke. secretary, served as class officers for the fresh- men. 3.

For the first time at FRA, the students in the eighth grade had classes in creative writing and current events. ln the creative writing class the stu- dents expanded their ability to express their feelings and thoughts more accurately with words. The eighth graders learned to increase their awareness of the happenings in the world around them through the cur- rent events class. The West Georgia Medical Center was toured by the Flint River Academy eighth grade science class. The students toured the ultra-sound department, the can- cer clinic, the heart clinic, the radiation treatment de- partment, and they also learned how x-rays work and how they are used. The students learned about heart catherization through video tapes provided by the per- sonnel at the center. Class members were able to see how cross-sections of brain tissue looked as a woman was being examined with the Cat scanner. The eighth graders sang at the Warm Springs Roose- velt Auditorium in the Christmas program. Many of the eighth grade members of the junior high chorus were named to the district honors' chorus. The expectation of soon becoming freshmen helped make the eighth graders' year pass more quickly. l. Donna Minter boogies to the beat at the Valentine Sockhop. 2.

Entering the upper school was a long awaited adventure for these students. The experience of having lockers and school dances and participating in organized sports made the seventh grade year uniquely memorable. The students in the seventh grade this year had typing as an elec- tive. This class is usually offered only to older students. The class also had the opportunity in the classroom to develop their artistic ability and to develop an ear for music. The seventh grade students took a day out from studying Georgia History to celebratre Georgia's 250th birthday. Looking back on the year, the seventh grade observed that a year of their upper school education was a worthwhile experience. I. The seventh grade elected as their class officers: vice-president, Steven Grosst president, Christie Battenhouset and secretary. Jamie Gramling. 2.

Exper- iencing new classes and activities like Spanish lessons from Mrs. Ellen Lee gave these students a glance at some upper school privileges. The sixth graders spent many long hours working in the classroom. They found it neces- sary to study hard in order to prepare themselves for upper school. Not only did they learn in the classroom with the new courses offered, but also outside the classroom through educational trips such as the tour of the new Atlanta airport. The sixth graders also received a new computer and began to learn to use the computer to help them with their studies. The sixth graders enioyed the computer and added one more step to their learning. The sixth grade students also participated in a number of musical productions directed by their music teacher, Mrs. Carolyn Turner. Showing their leadership, many sixth graders performed in solos, trios, and quartets. As the year came to an end, the excitement of making the step into upper school could be found in all sixth graders. All looked forward to gaining this independence with new responsibilities and activities. I. Angie Lovett and Andy Dawson struggle to finish some classwork. 2.

During the l982-83 school year the fifth graders were active doing many projects for different teachers. Mrs. Brisendine, the science teacher, had the students make crystals from sugar and salt. She also had them make a model of the solar system. Mrs. Walton, the math teacher, assigned a booklet of geometric figures to be made. Mrs. Brisendine, also the social studies teacher. had the students draw Indian villages and write a re- port about the villages. Mrs. Cotton, the English teach- er, assigned book reports every month for the fifth graders. Besides their regular courses, this year's fifth grade went to the upper school for Spanish, art, and music. Most of the students enjoyed these courses more than the regular courses. Though they worked hard, the fifth graders did have a little fun. ln December they were able to miss class to rehearse their Christmas songs. Also in December, they had their annual Christmas party which was enjoyed by everyone. They also had a Valentine's party in February and an "End of the Year" party in the month of June. l.

An Exciting Transition This year was a year of "firsts" for the fourth grade. Fourth graders looked forward to choosing what they wanted to eat in the lunchroom and playing on the lower playground with the sixth gradersl The fourth grade was represented in the king and queen contest by Nikki Stevens, Michael Couch, Jessica Gray, and Brooks Solomon. Their competitive spirit grew strong with participation in P.E. and in Field Day. Several new subjects and activities were added to their schedule. They enjoyed science, art, and Spanish. In English the fourth graders learned how to write and use quotations. During the middle of the year computers were added to all the elementary classes. In the fourth grade the stu- dents used the computer to improve their math skills. They participated in two musical productions, "Hey God, Listen" and "Christmas Around the World," that were under the direction of Mrs. Carolyn Turner. Don- nie Lemmon throughly enjoyed being narrator in "Hey God, Listen." Book reports included designing their own book covers and dressing up as a biographical character. At long last, they discovered that reading could be fun. The teachers said. "The fourth graders were enthusiastic, interested young people, for whom every day is an adventure. They specialize in friend- ship!" l. Samantha Swetman takes a break from her studies to show that school is also a place to be happy and have fun. 2. Donnie Lemmon uses many expressions in telling the audience about the program "Hey God, Listen." 3. Mrs. Mary Jo Gill teaches the fourth grade students in one of their many hard subjects. 4.

They trav- eled to Atlanta to see the "Emperor's New Clothes" at the Alliance Theater. Another trip was a tour of Eastern Airlines at the Atlanta airport. These students participated in the canned food drive sponsored by the Tri-Hi-Y and received a certificate for reaching their class goal. The climax of their unit study in Georgia history was the long awaited trip to the state capitol in Atlanta. This trip which is made by the third grade class each year proved to be fun and educational for the students. A new addition to the third grade was a computer. The students enjoyed practicing their math on the computer. I. Kim Fuller finds that it is sometimes hard to concentrate on class- work when hungry and ready for the bell to ring for lunch. J, Mrs, Akins third graders are always ready and willing to participate in the many class activities that help increase their knowledge and further their education. 3.

There was less time for play and more time for work. The second graders learned how to write in cursive. In math they learned how to borrow, carry. and began basic multiplication. Visitors added new joy in learning for the second graders. Trooper Eddie Jackson visited in his state patrol uniform. He taught the class safety rules. One of Dr. Hopkins' dental assistants, Miss Tooth, came to teach the students about good dental hygiene. She said, "If you are true to your teeth they will not be false to you." The second grade class participated in the film festi- val, each voted on his favorite film. The second grade unanimously chose Fourteen Rats and the Rat Catcher. They also performed in the annual lower school Christ- mas program. The second grade class had four field trips. They toured the Atlanta airport and they attended two plays. "The Emperor's New Clothes" and "The Pirates of Pen- zance." At the close of the year, the class had a picnic at Stone Mountain. l. Melanie, Bridgette, Jason, Matt.

Their learning activities, taught by Mrs. McAdams and Mrs. Gilleland, ranged from writ- ing and reading to phonics, math, and telling time. Texas Instrument computers and monitors, a new addition to the lower school grades, provided these students with an innovative tool. With so many hours spent studying in the classroom, it would appear that they did not have much time for play. However, the first grade participat- ed in many activities outside of their classrooms. Field trips, to a puppet show and the zoo, and performances, in musical productions and in a Thanksgiving Day program, were only a few of the numerous activities of these students. With such a busy schedule, first graders were expecting a second grade year full of excitement. I. Nervousness can be seen on the faces of Misty Procurot and Lisa Hunt as they prepare to perform at the Christmas program. 2.

Mrs. Lemmon and Mrs. Harbin had spe- cial activities every month. In October, the kindergar- teners had a party at Mrs. Lemmon's barn, which was complete with games, a witch and her witch's brew, and lots of goodies to eat. In November they had a Thanksgiving feast with the first grade. and the Keen- agers were special guests. Christmas was a time of celebration at Matt Fuller's house. Everyone helped decorate the tree for the tour of homes and afterwards had a party. The children anxiously awaited the arrival of Grandparents' day in February. To greet the grand- parents, corsages and boutonniers were made. Grand- parents' day was a great success with eighty-six grand- parents attending. ln March, they had an Easter party with the Community Helpers as special guest speakers. A new project this year was the Apple of the Week. Each week whoever is leader of the class gets to bring items like photos and vacation souvenirs to put on a bulletin board in the hall. Through the year while they were taking that first step in learning, kindergarteners were having fun at the same time. I. Shannon Hobbs and Cal McDonald hang ornaments for the tour of homes at Matt Fuller's house. The kindergarteners made the decora- tions themselves. 2.

The teacher, Mrs. Kalynn Hat- chett, inspired and directed the four year olds to listen as well as speak and to finish what they started. The students in the class were led to develop a curiosity about the world around them, to begin new interests and to extend old ones. The students observed common things in the world around them. The chore of cooking a typical everyday breakfast was a pleasure to the playlearn class. Each individual had the opportunity to break an egg on their own, fry stips of bacon, and flip pancakes. To many adults, the difference in the state and the national flag is a mundane thing. The four year olds' questions were answered in the playlearn class with pictures and a trip out to the front of the high school building to see the "real thing" waving in the breeze atop the flagpoles. The main goal of the playlearn class was to answer the questions of four year olds and to prepare them for kindergarten. l. Tenli Page carefully watches Brandon Garrett break an egg. 2.

Taking a break from the work with their students is something that every elementary teacher enjoyed.

Looking back at a year filled with accomplish- ments can make the excitement of it all reappear. Through hard work. determination, effort, and many long hours, the students and faculty have made achievements in every- thing they have attempted. Domi- nation in competitions. both aca- demic and athletic, has helped in upholding Flint River's well estab- lished reputation. Although this dif- ficult road has taken long and re- quired much from us, time has passed quickly. And FRA has reached its goal - to develop the mind, body. and spirit of its stu- dents. l.

With so many new beginnings. with a new headmaster, new poli- cies, and new programs. the year progressed through the hard work of many people. This year was full of new exper- iences that were participated in by every student in the school. During the year there were many assemblies, at one assembly was ob- served Founders' Day, at another students listened to people tell about their high school days as compared with today. Senior Send- off was a tradition started this year at FRA. Juniors, Sophomores, and Freshmen talked about the seniors' achievements, wishes, and memor- eis. Afterwards, the seniors were sent off by the students, who lined the drive-way and waved good-bye. This is going to be a tradition to be carried out each year at FRA. Looking back, we see the good times and the bad. With all these memories, students closed another chapter in the book of their lives and took a step toward the future. l.

And I sud- denly realized how small I was, and how insecure I was, and how big the world was, and how Lonely the new path was - and I wanted to turn back. But as I turned and looked back, the wind had blown out my tracks. So I walked forward and didn't look back again. Anonymous The class of l983 will look back at this year and their previous thir- teen years at Flint River Academy with fond memories and with a feel- ing of pride in their school. They have now joined the fifteen other classes to become alumni who will work together to continue the heri- tage begun -- a school to develop mind, body. and spirit. I. The Seniors of l983 look back at exciting years at Flint River Academy. There were good times, and bad times, but they will al- ways be remembered by the class of l983.
