West FrankfortThe Redbird Annual staff would like to thank Mr. Larry DeMattei for his help with this year’s annual. Mr. DeMattei donated a great deal of his time to take some of our action shots, club officers’ pictures, candid shots, sports pictures, and other pictures of various school activities.
We deeply appreciate his time and effort in helping us successfully complete the 1979 Redbird Annual.
159. romoletion of an annual
The sixty-fifth edition of the 1979 Redbird Annual has now been completed, i n . i
is not a solo effort; therefore, there are many people we would like to thank who were in
The staff wishes to express its sincere appreciation to Mr. Borton and the faculty for their help and co operation. Thanks also go to the professional people and merchants of West Frankfort for their support.
We also wish to thank Delmar Studios for their time and patience. A special thanks goes to Mr. Larry DeMattei for his exceptional photography work.
Our appreciation goes to our advisor Mrs. Hellen Mary Batts. Without her guidance and assistance, this annual could never have been completed. As we accepted our positions as staff members, we didn’t realize the great amount of time and responsibility involved. But as the year went on, we felt the work was well worth its time.
