They can be lived only once. High school years can also be frustrating years; they are sure to be years of greatest challenge. This challenge is unavoidable; it is one with which you must cope. You will emerge from this effort either triumphant and better prepared for trying situations in the future, or defeated and apathetic . . . possessing behavior patterns that will make most of your contacts with the future increasingly difficult as the years go by. These are the years during which you must contend with contrasting forces. This is no simple task. You are no longer a child; neither are you an adult. Each day you are faced with situations requiring action on both sides of this invisible line. The way in which you react to these youthful experiences will result in satisfaction and growth, or disappointment and discouragement. If you use wisely the opportunities made available to you during your years in school, the future will be bright, rewarding, and joyful. May your lives be long and profitable and happy. May they be lived in such a way that as the years increase, you can look back with pride and satisfaction toward ajob well done, and those with whom you have worked and played and lived will have profited from your presence among them.

Vice-President: Patty Dorris, Secretary: Patty Weston, Treasurer: Kim Woods, President. As the school year came to a close, seniors realized that the time had come for a final accounting to record the pep assemblies, club initiations, high school dances, and class work that marked the momentum of their school years. They began to look closely at the faces and friends that populated the halls of F.C.H.S., as they realized their high school years had come to an end. For the seniors their journey into adulthood had just begun. They carefully examined their goals for the future. For many of the seniors the future meant continuing their education: while for others it meant jobs, homes, and securities. The class sponsor was Mr. Rice. Carrying out their roles as leaders of the future were Kim Woods, president: Lisa Ruzich. vice-president: Patty Dorris, secretary; and Patty Weston, treasurer. With much enthusiasm and excitement, the seniors participated in a week filled with various homecoming events. They worked on their class float and attended the bonfire and the Homecoming dance. The seniors also saw the Redbirds fight a well earned victory over their rival, the Benton Rangers. During the coronation, the seniors watched as Patty Dorris was crowned Homecoming Queen. Maid of Honor was Lisa Ruzich. Lady-in-Waiting was Kim Woods. So now. with the realization that they are entering into the adult world and are becoming an important part of our progressing society, the class of "78" will hold the last four years they spent at F.C.H.S. to be the most cherished years of their lives. 30Adelsberger, Buddy Agnitsch.

Treasurer. The class of '79 entered the halls this year thinking about many new things. During the past two years their horizons have been broadened unbelievably, and they've begun to contemplate their lives after high school. Of course, all the studying has been important, but the class of ’79 is realizing that homework and study items are used to trigger a thinking on their part, and they are learning to put their new techniques to work. The juniors assumed their traditional role of planning the Junior-Senior Prom. They also experienced the ecstacy of ordering their class rings. In the homecoming event they chose Martha Tomlinson and Terri Wiley to serve as attendants. Along with the help of their sponsors. Mr. Ricci and Mr. Steh. they won first prize on their homecoming float. Akins. Kim Arnold. Laura Barton. Gerald Bartoni. Mike 48Basler, Mark Beard. Kenny Blackshare. Lynette Blades, Scott Blades.
