For some, George's Place is an education center, for others it is

"George's Place" is perhaps a better name than George Wash-
ington High School because the experiences here are not just
educational. The experiences gained after four years are also
social, personal, and emotional.
George's Place . . . a place for good times and bad, for good

unique investment proposal was
made last September 16. It was
made by the leaders of Indianapolis
and its schools to the juniors and seniors of
Washington High School.
"George's Place" was the investment, and
the investors were the businesses of Indiana-
polis. It was called Invest Indianapolis.

omecoming: T e place to b
omecoming night of September 25
was a beautiful night for fun and vic-
The Homecoming contest was against the
Tech Titans. A Continental victory was se-
cured by halftime. Junior running back Mi-
chael Covington scored rushing touchdowns
of one and five yards in the first half. Tony
Maxwell added the extra points as Washing-
ton blanked the Titans 14-O. The win left
Washington with a 2-3 record.
The halftime lead had the crowd worked
up and ready for the Homecoming festivities.
The procession of cars came one by one to
the center of the track in front of the stands
and delivered the princesses: freshman Jen-
nifer Humphrey, sophomore Cindy Dishman,
and junior Melanie Hillman. Their princes
were freshman Tyrone Winston, sophomore
Ron Sidwell, and junior Donald White.
A sleek town car next rolled up to bring
the senior princesses to their waiting princes.
Carol Combs, Shenia Footman, Missy Koup,
Cathy Pitcock, and Cathy Robinson were es-
corted by Harold Adams, Joe Bledsoe, Eric
Gude, Dallen Hedges, and Ed White to the
edge of the field for the traditional crowning
ceremony. Ed White was named King, while,
for the first time ever, two Queens were
crowned: Shenia Footman and Missy Koup.
After the ceremony, the couples went to
their cars for the classy motorcade around
Floats sponsored by the COE, the Band,
Freedoms Foundation, the Student Council,
and the Boys' and Girls Swim teams followed.
Their bright decorations and enthusiastic
participants added to the fun of the night.
Suddenly the lights were extinguished, and
The fireworks were terrific. The favorites
were the big purple and gold starbursts and
the traditional GWHS sign. They seem to get
more beautiful and louder every year!
Homecoming, 1987, was another success-
ful endeavor for all Continentals-for those
who contributed and for those who came to

The traditional ceremonies fill the
onths of May and June. First there comes
e announcement of the May Queen and her
ourt then the Prom. Next is Awards Day
hich is soon followed by Graduation.
Last year's prom on May 9 at the Colum-
nia Club was another great success-with all
ickets sold. The theme was "Fiesta de
Amor" meaning party of love. lt was decided
pon so as to correspond with the Spanish
eme of the Pan Am Games held here last
summer. Dawn Adams and Sean Copeland
were crowned queen and king.
Awards Day followed on May 27. lt was
presided over by Queen Dawn Highbaugh
and her court consisting of Jessie Baker, Trel-
lanie Boles, Stephanie Caraway, Michelle
Haselwood, Jennifer Heath, and Kim Majors.
There were two programs honoring both un-
derclassmen and seniors. Scholarships and
trophies were awarded to the seniors for aca-
demic and athletic excellence.
As the last days were counted down, feel-
ings of sadness and loss began to mingle with
those of happiness and relief. Graduation ar-
rived on June 4. lt was a warm, beautiful
evening. School board member Lillian Davis
awarded the graduates their diplomas. Chris-
tine Derebeef was valedictorian. Dennis
Thompson was salutatorian. The benediction
was given by John Sluss.
So finally the end of high school was real-
ized by the 1987 graduates, and "Georges
Place" became a fond memory. From now
on, it would just be a place to visit and not a
place to stay.

his year there were some changes in the
guidance department. Among the
changes were the new computers that
were installed in each of the counselors' and
also the deans' offices. This change let both of
these groups keep student records and
schedules at their fingertips. These comput-
ers also diminished excessive paperwork and
worry for both the counselors and the deans.
The counselors also made some changes in
schedule making. Instead of seeing students
one by one in their offices, the counselors
visited the English classes. There they were
able to talk to students as a group and make
schedules in a less time consuming and dis-
ruptive manner. This change proved easier
for counselors, students, and teachers.
Next fall will bring about another change
for counselors, students, and teachers.
Called the Guidance Renewal Project, it will
institute a 15 to 25 minute homeroom period.
There schedules will be made, and students
will be able to communicate with one teacher
about their problems. Counselors will work a
flex-time schedule. They will work eight
hours but at different times so that counselors
will be able to make home visits even at night.
The goal of the project is to better serve
Even though there were a few changes this
year, and there will be even more next year,
our counselors still had time to help. Whether
it was a scheduling change or a problem at
home, our counselors were always there.

nglish sets new goals
he English Department, headed by
Mr. Sutherland, offered a variety of in-
teresting electives as well as the re-
quired courses. S.A.T. coaching, creative
writing, etymology, and, for the first time in
several years, speech classes were offered.
Journalism, newspaper, and yearbook were
available for students interested in the print
medium. Bridge classes were also offered on
the 9th, 10th, and 12th grade levels. These
classes, as part of the Wabash-Washington
Bridge program, encouraged students to pre-
pare for college.
Preparation for the ISTEP test conducted
in March was an important goal of the depart-
ment and its teachers. During the first semes-
ter, freshmen who had failed a competency
test in 8th grade worked with an aide, Mr.
Sanders, and special materials to retake that
test. During the second semester, teachers
worked on test-taking skills every week until
March. The ISTEP program is part of the
new state requirement that students possess
a certain level of competency before gradu-
Visitors and speakers to English classes
sparked student interest in learning. Dr. Ann
Marie Drew from the University of Indianapo-
lis lectured Mrs. Gonzales' senior bridge class
on Shakespeare and A Midsummers Night
Dream before the seniors visited Wabash and
viewed a performance of the play. Speakers
from Project Business and Partners in Educa-
tion visited several classes: Mr. Sutherland's
classes welcomed a speaker from Detroit Die-
sel Allison, Larry Cruse was matched with
Mrs. Hall's English IG class, Keith Locke, Dir.
of Group Systems, visited Mrs. Cravens'
freshmen classesg Tony Perona was Mrs. Ben-
son's business partner.
Mr. Sutherland in his senior classes encour-
aged group projects with successful results.
When studying Beowulf, students assumed
the characters and acted out several scenes
from the story. When studying Chaucer, stu-
dent groups chose one of the Canterbury
tales to present to the class. Students even
dressed in costume to illustrate the story.
The Department again sponsored speak-
ing contests for students: the 61st annual Po-
etry Reading contest in May and the lst an-
nual Shakespeare recitation contest spon-
sored by the English Speaking Union.
Washington's winner participated in the
county-wide contest at the University of ln-
dianapolis in February.
The department welcomed one new mem-
ber, Elaine Theisen who taught previously at
Attucks and Broad Ripple.
The Media Center, managed by Media Di-
rector Mr. Steinberg, added a new library
clerk: Angela Brittain. The Media Center
also installed a book detection system to
monitor the removal of books from the li-
brary. The Media Center continued to be
used by a large number of students and
classes as they took advantage of its refer-
ence and video resources.

Media Center this year. A native of In-
dianapolis and a student at l.U.PU.I.,
Miss Angela Brittain arrived at Washington in
October as library clerk. She previously
worked at LPS. Media Services in the SCIPS
building. She is studying Library Science and
Secondary Education while working with the
intention to receive degrees in those areas in
order to become a high school librarian. Miss
Brittain enjoyed her first year on the job es-
pecially when working with the students and
staff. She added, "I would like to see more
motivation in the students. I believe in order
to make it, the motivation and self-esteem
must be there."

epartment Head Mr. Badgley wel-
comed two new teachers this year: Mr.
Williams and Mr. Bergeron. Mr. Wil-
liams completed his first year of teaching
here at Washington. He also coached the
wrestling team. He wrestled in junior high,
high school, and college at Ghio University
where he received his degree in education
and mathematics. Mr. Bergeron completed
his fourth year of teaching and third year of
coaching here as he took on the freshman
football coaching job as well as teaching du-
ties. He went to school and previously taught
in Michigan. Mr. Bergeron called the fresh-
man football championship his best experi-
ence this year.
The Math Department offered many
classes beyond the required curriculum for its
advanced students such as Computer Math,
Geometry, Algebra 3 and 4, and Advanced
Math. The Department and its staff also pre-
pared, along with the English Department,
for the ISTEP test. An aide, Mr. Kahn,
helped with the remediation of those fresh-
men who failed a competency test in 8th
There were also new faces in the Science
Department. Mrs. Giordano taught Earth Sci-
ence and physical science as well as taking on
the job as cheerleader sponsor. Though new
to many Continentals, Mr. Kassig had pre-
viously taught at Washington. He returned
after teaching at Shortridge Jr. High for sev-
eral years. Miss Lyons also had a student
teacher for the first semester: Mrs. Ransdell.

more interested in the resulting scores on the

tion in LPS.
Two science students: Larry Scisney and
Diana Freels participated in extra-curricular
science projects at Indiana State University.
Both the math and science departments
offered classes connected with the Bridge
program. Math offered a Bridge geometry
class while science offered a biology class.
Students enrolled in these classes made trips
to Wabash College to sit in on science and
math classes at the college.

rs. Ransdell, a student teacher,
worked with Miss Lyons and her
classes the first semester. A graduate
of Evangel College in Springfield, Missouri,
she possessed a double major in chemistry
and biology. After graduation, she spent sev-
eral years in medical research, first at Univer-
sity Hospital in Tucson and then Riley and
I.U. Hospitals here in Indianapolis. She later
received her masters degree from I.U.PU.l.
Mrs. Ransdell said she was really impressed
with Washington and wouldn't mind coming
back to teach. She stated her worst experi-
ence was "having to put D's or F's on report
cards of kids l know are bright." Interacting
with the students was her most enjoyable
aspect of her time here.

program - a national program. It allows stu-
dents first hand experiences in the nation's
capitol to see how government functions. Stu-
dents can gain a realistic perspective of gov-
ernment and also meet students from other
states. This spring Mr. Laetsch and several
juniors and seniors travelled to Washington,
Several lawyers visited Mr. I.aetsch's
classes to speak on the judicial system and
capital punishment. -
The Foreign Language teachers and stu-
dents were very active this year. Department
head Mr. Arnold got involved in the Pan Am
Games last summer. He taught Spanish
classes to about forty students the week of
July 6 at IUPUI and Fort Harrison. Mr. Ar-
nold had the difficult task of preparing for the
games in only one week. One afternoon's as-
signment was to ask questions in designated
spots downtown to see whether anyone
spoke Spanish. Mr. Arnold said he enjoyed
the class and the entire experience. His stu-
dents were highly motivated to learn as much
as possible. Remarked Mr. Arnold, "They
were really caught in the 'Pan Am fever.' "
While Mr. Arnold was teaching, Miss
McMillin was treating herself to a summer in
Europe. She is our French and Spanish teach-
er. She spent six days in London seeing muse-
ums, shopping, and learning the "tube" sys-
tem tsubwayl. She then took the hovercraft to
France and rode a train to Paris. The high-
light of her stay was being a guest at a recep-
tion given by the Prime Minister of France.
Ms. McMillin would love to live in France, she
loves the lifestyle: "the outdoor markets,
cafes, and especially people." She hopes to
continue her summers of travel.
he Social Studies Department welcomed
a student teacher this year: Mr. Kreider.
Mr. Kreider formerly worked for the Federal
Deposit Insurance Corporation. He decided
to switch careers, which was unusual for a
person already established in a career, be-
cause he had a desire to contribute to young
people's learning experiences. Explained Mr.
Kreider, "Lives seemed more important than
loans." His best experiences at Washington
involved meeting teachers and students, al-
though he had his share of talkers and disrup-
tive students. He really enjoyed Parent-in-
Touch night. Mr. Kreider received his degree
from I.U., and while his teaching time was a
challenge, it was also enjoyable. He liked
working with Mr. Hanley's Bridge classesg he
said many ofthe Bridge students had decided
to focus on their studies, which works for any
student who wants to do his or her best. Mr.
Kreider's last day was November 20.

titions, and some changes. Mr. Whitmore
took over as department head replacing the
retired Miss McConnell. And Mr. Hall joined
the staff, he is a 25-year veteran teacher who
transferred here from school 101.
Several Continentals won recognition for
their work. Pam Halliburton designed a
Christmas ornament that was used on the
Chamber of Commerce tree on the Circle.
Jonas Kersey and Angie Jones were finalists
in the IPS Christmas card competition, and
Jonas' design was used on an invitation and
reproduced in the IPS holiday newsletter. Jo-
nas and Angie also were top award winners in
the Allison Art Exhibit last spring. Also last
spring, Missy Koup was the Gold Key, Blue
ribbon finalist at the Regional Scholastic Art
Awards. This year students again entered the
500 Festival, the 6th annual Allison, and the
Scholastic Awards competition. 1st, 2nd, and
3rd place awards were brought home
Mr. Hall's Basic Art class created posters
for American Education Week November 15-
21. The students produced the posters indi-
vidually and within groups. The posters were
then displayed throughout the school.
Miss Overpeck's Textiles classes worked
on a gift to the school - a sailing ship made
of wood and fiber. Also in Miss Overpeck's
classes, Rex Eaton, her business partner
from Allison's, visited alternate Tuesdays to
lecture and encourage.

performed in the Veterans Day parade.
The members of the department kept
themselves involved in music and perform-
ing. Mrs. Colvin performed locally in many
theater and music productions. She received
an Encore Awards nomination for best minor
supporting actress in a musical for her perfor-
mance in "Barnum" at the Civic theater last
spring. Mrs. Colvin was also named a judge
for the Encore Awards Association which

Ms. Ridge, Miss Brown, and Mrs. Ladd
taught the food courses this year. Beginners
learned how to bake breads, cookies, and
cereals. The department also offered the ad-
vanced class of Vocational Foods. This course
was designed for students pursuing a career
in the food industry. The class was taught to
prepare meats and side dishes along with des-
serts. ln the second semester, students were
placed in food-related jobs for which they
earned two credits.
Mrs. Page taught the clothing classes while
Mrs. Rardon taught Needle Arts. Students in
beginning clothing were assigned a skirt, a
pair of pants, or a jumper. After completing
one of these, students could make anything
they chose. Mrs. Page also had advanced
classes which made tailored jackets and for-
mals. Baby blankets, bedspreads, and sweat-
ers were made in Mrs. Rardon's Needle Arts

ashington's ROTC unit was very ac-
tive this year. MSgt. Leonard God-
frey, 1 Sgt. Michael Crumly, and
CSM Donald Maiden took forty-five cadets to
Chicago over the weekend of October 29.
This trip was a tour of the city's highlights.
Sgt. Godfrey stated the trip was a good, use-
ful, cultural experience for all involved.
Guest speakers from the Army, Navy, and
Air Force kept the cadets informed of career
opportunities in the armed forces. Washing-
ton's drill and rifle teams participated in nu-
merous meets throughout the year not only in
Indiana but in Kentucky as well. First, third,
and fourth place trophies were won by the
drill teams. The ROTC also won a plaque for
participation in the Veterans Day Parade.
One additional honor earned by Washing-
ton's ROTC unit was the selection of James
Pellam as the 1987 Indiana Cadet of the
CSM Maiden left Washington in January.
He accepted a new ROTC command in De-
cember and assumed his new duties at Tech
in January. The new command is really a
promotion and honor for CSM Maiden. It
placed him in charge of IPS ROTC programs.
The students and staff of the Physical Edu-
cation Department were busy with activities
as well. During the boy's swimming season, a
water polo clinic was held for members of the
Washington and Brebeuf boys swim teams.
During the Winter Break, a water polo coach
for the Panama, South American team, came
to our pool to teach ball handling skills and to
help with practice for the game. The Contin-
entals beat Brebeuf 7-5. The Panamanian
coach will be back to help both teams again in
the future, Coach Shaw said.
Also in the pool area, a student teacher,
Tony Bishop, worked with Mr. Newland and

well as familiar faculty members guided and
advised these programs and pointed students
toward rewarding goals.
Through the span of one year, Continen-
tals saw all the emotions, struggles, new probi
lems, and new ideas that occurred between
students and teachers in the classroom. For
the classroom is the place where it all comes
together: friends, enemies, disappointments,
antagonisms, dreams, success, failure. Wash-
ington revolves around its classes, and its suc-
cess must be measured by how its students do
in school. The most important of our endeav-
ors must be education. With all the social
distractions, students often forget that educa-
tion is the reason we are here-here at
George's Place-a place for education.

For one week during June tthough during

are held at Indiana State University. Kenny
Burgess and Penny Wright were
Nashington's representatives. They were
chosen on the basis of their grades and
-eadership potential. At Boys and Girls State,
articipants set up mock governments,
reated political parties, and elected leaders.
This was the 50th anniversary of Boys State
ivhich is sponsored by the American Legion.
Kenny Burgess remembered, 'KMy best
Experience was holding the president

Penny Wright said, "I learned that there is a
lot more to our government than what we
hear in the news."
Every year Wabash College runs the
Learn About Business CO-LABI program.
Students from the state go to Wabash to take
part in this learning activity. Washington sent
three students: Angela Payton, Kelli Smith,
and Terri Thompson. They spent ten days
learning about the business world and
forming their own companies. Said Kelli, "I
think this program helped me to understand
the business world better and especially gave
me a chance to use some of my own skills at
running my own company. I would
recommend this program for any individual
interested in business."
National Honor Society is a national
organization with chapters at high schools
across the country. It recognizes academic
leadership. Students must have a 6.0 grade
average and be voted in by the faculty. The
faculty judges academic excellence, service
to the school, initiative, and integrity. New
members are accepted into the society in the
fall and spring. The initiation ceremony is
held in the spring. Mr. Wyman is the sponsor.
The Student Council is a service
organization open to students who have at
least a C average and are willing to devote
time to the council on a regular basis. The
council met every Tuesday during the year
from 7:45 to 8:15 under the sponsorship of
Miss Borel. Student council officers were
President Anthony Montgomery, Vice-
President Talissa Jones, Secretary Twana
Griffin, Treasurer Lynnette Johnson, and Sgt-
at-Arms Kealy Reaves.
The Council initiated several service
projects like "Trick or Treat" for UNICEF and
the annual canned food drive during the
holiday season with the Freedoms
Foundation. This culminated with a dance at
Olivers on November 24 with admission
being a can of food. Over 1200 cans were
collected. The Council also supported
C.A.S.A. tContinentals Against Substance
Abusel and bell ringing for the Salvation
Army at Christmas. The Student Council
also supported extra-curricular events like
Homecoming and dances. For the past four
years, the council has raised funds to present
Homecoming fireworks. The Council also
conducts the balloting for Homecoming
royalty and acts as the sponsor for many of
the events. The Council also supported the
PT.S.O., a Mr. and Ms. Basketball, and the
annual lip-sinc contest, "Puttin' on the Hits."
Three members of the Student Council
were honored with election to the City-wide
Student Council: Nicole Hudson as recording

word processing, and clerical filing were
some of the basic skills taught.
For those not seeking training in secretarial
skills, there was M.E. conducted by Mr.
Tolson. M.E. was for students with interest in
sales of goods and services. The students
learned skills in communication, sales
techniques, retailing, and personal relations.
Juniors received classroom training, while
seniors got on-the-job training. The skills
learned broadened career goals.

he paper for the tenth year. She made sure
hat each issue of the paper was done
correctly, but yet allowed students to work
dependently and to freely use their own

A yearbook is a very important part of
everyone's high school career. It is more than
just a book, it is a lifetime of memories. The
staff of the George Washington POST was
responsible for producing this yearbook-the
60th volume of the POST. The POST staff
put in months of hard work on the yearbook
to assure its quality. Miss Davis instructed the
staff in many areas as she has done for six
years. Her attitude toward perfection rubbed
off on her students and is reflected in this
yearbook. Deana Hillman was sports editor,
Lisa Phillips and Kim Shepherd were the
classes editors, Eva Hibbert and James

Halliburton and Angela Sisson were the
album editors. These students not only
created a book but also ran a 310,000
The Freedoms Foundation, sponsored by
Mr. Gaynor, is a service organization. It does
a great deal for the community each year.
This year, as the group had done for several
years, it organized a canned food drive with
the Student Council during the holidays.
Over 1200 cans were collected and
distributed to the Mary Riggs Community
Center, Hawthorne Community Center, and
Cristamore House. They also collected for
the Toys for Tots program at Christmas.
Tisdale's Team completed its first year as
an organization at Washington. It is an
organization headed by Indiana Pacer
Wayman Tisdale and Howe H.S. teacher Jim
Arvin. Its Washington sponsors are Miss
Borel and Mr. Phillips. The purpose of the
program is to create a positive image toward
individuals who have been successful without
the use of drugs. Student members of
Washingtonls chapter of the Tisdalels Team
are examples of people who are not afraid to
say "No" to drugs. The members are not only
examples to their high school peers but also
to junior high students particularly at School
47 and Attucks Jr. High-Washington's
feeder schools. Visitations were made by the
Tisdale Team members with the ultimate goal
being the formation of satellite clubs at the
two schools. The long range goal of the
Tisdale Team program is to be in every IPS
school and even in the Marion County school
The team participated in a drug-free youth
rally called "Turn on your Heartlightw at
Union Station on February 14. The highlight
of the year though had to be the meeting with
First Lady Nancy Reagan at Howe H.S. on
February 4. At that rally, the Kiwanis Club
presented a 317,000 check to Mrs. Reagan
who in turn presented it to Wayman Tisdale

ROTC is in command
ood citizenship, patriotism, leadership,
self-reliance, discipline, and knowledge
of basic military skills are a few of the
riany things taught in the Junior Reserve
Dfficer Training Corps CJROTCI here at
Nashington. Some of the basic skills a
IROTC student will learn are drill ceremony,
'naintainance and use of a rifle, first aid, and
nap reading which may help in future
'nilitary or civilian life.
As many know, the JROTC cadet wears a
miform issued by the department every
Thursday for inspection. In order to pass
inspection, cadets must have a well-groomed
uniform, shined shoes and brass, plus
knowledge of what has been taught in the
classroom. If cadets demonstrate
responsibility, good attendance, enthusiasm
in the unit, and daily improvement in daily
activities, they will be rewarded.
The JROTC unit participated in many
activities this year. It presented the colors at
home sporting events, IPS school board
meetings, and even some Pacer home
basketball games. Annually the unit marches
in the Veterans Day Parade as it did this year.
' 'tis 'e
An awards ceremony was held in the spring
for outstanding cadets. The JROTC unit also
participated in Memorial Day activities in
Washington's JROTC unit is well known
for its excellent rifle team and its two drill
teams. All three teams competed with other
high schools within the state bringing home
The "Honor Unit with Distinctionu is an
award JROTC at Washington has earned for
the past nine years. This award is the highest
that any unit can achieve.
For the past two years, the JROTC unit
has undergone many changes that have
affected the program. During the 1986-87
school year, the rifle team changed the
weapons which it fired. The .22 caliber rifle
was used before, the Daisy .177 caliber air
rifle took its place. In the same year, the co-
ed Drill Expedition Team was separated into
male and female teams. Previously, at the
end of each year, a unit inspection was held
by the JROTC Second Region Inspection
Team, called the Annual Federal Inspection
CAFII. This was changed to a Biannual
Command Inspection QBCIJ. The BCI was
held for the second time this year. Another
change which affected Washington's JROTC
unit was the promotion of Command
Sergeant Major Maiden, the former Senior
Army instructor and rifle team coach. He
was moved up to the position of assistant to
the Director of Army Instruction for all IPS
Schools. This action put extra responsibilities
on the two other instructors at Washington.
Master Sergeant Godfrey was announced the
acting SAI and 1st Sergeant Crumly became
the coach of the rifle team. The new SAI is
expected to take CSM Maiden's place at the
beginning of the 1988-89 school year.
The JROTC unit at Washington is a great
program to be involved in, and as many
cadets will agree, it offers many
opportunities and challenges.

he Continental boys varsi-
ty basketball team ended
its season with a 2-18 rec-
rd. One high point was the scor-
ng of senior Michael Parks. He
ed in scoring with an average of
8 points a game. This ranked
im several times during the sea-
on among the top city and coun-
y scorers. Sophomore Lamont
ean followed in scoring.
Part of the team's problem
as its inexperienceg it played
ith several underclassmen-
wo of whom were regular start-
rs-Steve Scott and Lamont
ean. Later in the season, fresh-
en Johnny Miles and Eli Ra-
heed were moved to varsity.
he team also lacked height.
The season started poorly
ith the team losing their first
ight games. But the first win of
he year was a thriller. It came
gainst Center Grove who was
anked in the state's top 20 at the
ime. Junior Steve Scott stole an
pass and made a layup
tie the game at 63 at the buzz-
The Continentals then won
in overtime outscoring
Lack of height
and consistent shooting
lead to season of
Center Grove 5-7.
lt was a great victory, but it did
not boost the team's efforts. Sev-
en more frustrating losses fol-
lowed before another victory.
And again the win came against
a highly regarded team-this
time city rival Arlington who had
beaten the Continentals in the
city tourney a month earlier. The
Continentals overcame a seven
point deficit against Arlington at
halftime and took the lead mid-
way in the fourth quarter to win
56-53. Michael Parks had his
game high of 27 points-his sec-
ond best effort of the season.
One particularly frustrating
game of the season was the city
match-up with Arlington. Wash-
ington led at halftime 30-19, but
then Arlington outscored the in-
experienced Continentals 22-4
and led 41-34 at the third quar-
ter. Washington surged back in
the final quarter but could not
get the job done and lost 56-62.
What was ironic was that the
Continentals shot better than Ar-
lington .500 to .413 and had few-
The team ended its season
with a loss to Northwest in the

Three weeks later the J.V. team
won its second game against

This season the freshmen
played two overtime games-
one against Howe which was lost
44-48 and one against Tech
which was won 42-39.
Some of the highlights of the
season occurred against Tech
and Chatard. Against Tech, Eli
Rasheed grabbed 14 rebounds
and Johnny Miles made 12 of 14
free throws in the Continentals'
overtime victory over the Titans.
All five starters scored in double
figures as the Continentals
cruised by Chatard with the
score 58-33 here at Washington.
And Marlon King's three point
play in the last seconds, which
gave Washington the victory
over South Wayne at South

for the young Continentals. King

Washington, as well as other
PS schools, saw a loss of partici-
ants in wrestling. Since there
re thirteen weight classes, and
ashington was able to fill only
ight classes, Washington was
orced to forfeit the other five
weight matches. Every forfeit

ult of the forfeits, Washington
inished 0-7 as a team. However,
ndividual wrestlers brought
iome several first place finishes.
Washington's new wrestling

members of the other fall sports.
Mr. Williams feels one of the
problems of wrestling is recruit-
ment due to the fact there is no
real pro wrestling and no money
involved as in other sports. An-
other problem is eligibility. Sev-
eral wrestlers we lost after the
start of the season due to eligibil-
ity loss. And said Mr. Williams,
"Wrestling is a tough sport to
participate in. Not many people
want to pay the price. It is also an
individual sport. lf you lose, you
can only blame it on yourself.
Many people can't handle that
emotionally." But the hardest
thing wrestling had to overcome
was the lack of interest in this

Spring is the time for moving sports from
the gym to the track, the diamond, and the
tennis court. lt's time for baseball, softball,
tennis, and track. Last year, each of these
teams played hard, and this year worked for
improvement. The 1987 baseball teams fin-
ished with a varsity record of 2-8 and a J .V.
record of 3-13. The softball team earned a 7-
8 record. The 1987 boys track team won
their season and the sectional championship.
The girls, though, had no wins as a team,
however, 1987 senior Stephanie Caraway
competed in the regionals. The girls tennis
team finished 5-10 and earned its first trophy
ever in the IPS tourney.

he 1987 season proved to
be successful for the girls
tennis team. A trophy was
brought home for the first time in
the history of Washington tennis
by the girls capturing second
place at the first annual IPS tour-
ney. Last season the girls played
much stronger as a team, and
they improved their record from
2-13 to 5-10 over the previous
year. Hopes were high for an
even better record in 1988.
Contributing largely to the
girls' success was Coach Tolin.
He gave stickers for effort, atti-
tude, consistency, and practice.
Coach Tolin also announced an
outstanding player for each
game in order to give the girls
something to strive for while

enior class officers are tradition-

demonstrated outstanding ability
during their high school careers.
Qualifications such as a C average
and being a June senior are re-
quired. The Class of 1988 chose
several top seniors to lead the way.
Shenia Footman was elected presi-
dent. Kenny Burgess was elected
vice-president. His duties included
helping with the plans Shenia de-
vised for the senior year. Treasurer
Richard Graves took care of the
money for senior projects. Holli
Jacks took the office of secretary
and made sure that seniors were no-
tified of events. This year there
were two sergeant-at-arms: Shawn
Smerdel and Kealy Reaves. Their
duties included keeping peace
among seniors and handling their
complaints in an orderly way. Being
a class officer meant handling re-
sponsibility and promoting pride in
the senior class, and this year the
officers displayed both of these qua-

Y ar in Review
ollege, in or out of Indiana, is costly to attend. However, seniors
remembered "Where there's a will, there's a way" with the
guidance of college representatives and Ms. Whitehead.
Attending college in Indiana is usually cheaper than going to
college out of state. The tuition for Indiana University in Blooming-
ton, for example, was 31,680 in 1987. On top of that was room
and board costing 32,425. If costs don't change, it would cost
316,420 to attend I.U. for four years. Though in-state colleges are
less expensive to attend, even they cost thousands of dollars.
A student pays more to attend college out of state. In 1987, it
would have cost an Indiana student 34,176 tuition to attend Cali-
fornia State University at Los Angeles, plus 32,000 room and
board. If an Indiana student stayed four years, it would cost
324,704. At the University of Massachusetts in Boston, tuition was
34,320 in 1987, four years would cost 317,280 Down south, an
Indiana student might pay 33,804 for tuition and 32,810 for room
andboard to attend the University of Maryland in 1987, this would
accumulate to 326,056 over four years.
While costs of going to college are considerable, ambitious stu-
dents can find funds to attend college. The key to finding funds for
college is looking for them and working to get them.
rom night- a senior happen-
ing, a tradition that creates a
lifetime of memories.
The 1988 prom moved to the
Indiana Roof after several years
at the Columbia Club. Continen-
tals spent a starry night under
the famous Indiana Roof on May
21. "If Only For One Night," ev-
erything was perfect.
However to get to that perfect
night, there was some hard work
by prom adviser Miss Burroughs
and her committee of juniors and
seniors. And there were many
expenses to take care of by

raduation--the word holds many different meanings for
many different people. This moment in a personls life is the
last step before joining the real world-one last small step for
students, one giant step towards the future.
For some students, graduation is a major accomplishment in
itself. Still for others, it's one small step before a career or a stint
in the armed forces, and for others, it's a transitional step
between high school and college.
This year 's seniors were the first to graduate with 38 required
credits. And after the four years of earning those credits, the
class of 1988 faced one last school ceremony together-gradw
ation on Thursday, June 9. First there were the speeches of the
principals, the valedictorian and the saluatorian, and then the
diplomas. Finally, the tassel ceremony arrived when, at last, the
students became alumni-when the tassels were moved from
the left side to the right. Suddenly the evening sky was filled
with hats and shouts of congratulation. Graduation 1988.

The senior year included difficult classes such as Eng-
lish 8, Government, and Economics which must be
passed in order to graduate. Some seniors prepared for
college by taking the S.A.T.'s and sending applications
last fall and winter. Others graduated in January to look
for work before the June rush or took full-time jobs to
earn money for school. Then there were the still undecid-
ed seniors who faced graduation somewhat uncertainly.
Four years certainly seemed like a long time way back
in 1984, but if today's seniors could look back it really was
just like yesterday. And though the freshman year pro-
gressed slowly lbecause it was so anxiously desired to be
forgottenl, the intervening years flew by. And the senior
year, though full of such events as class elections, home-
coming, awards day, prom, and graduation, went by the
fastest of all.
And so at last, the Class of 1988 discovered its maturi-
ty, graduated on June 9, and waved goodbye to

et's take a trip back to when we were children. We
all can remember how it felt to be young but wanting
to be grown up. Well, adulthood has arrived in the
disguise of high school graduation. For high school gradu-
ates are considered by many to be adults who must now
be responsible for their own lives. Things are definitely
going to be different after June 1988 from what we
thought when we were children.
Lola Hibbert confessed, "When l was young, I used to
think that I would always know how to deal with things,
and I would know how to deal with problems. But now I
know." She was also afraid when she was in sixth grade
that she wouldn't be able to get all the credits needed to
graduate. Recalled Dallen Hedges, "I thought that l could
live off my parents all my life. But now I realize, what
happens when they're gone? l thought life was as easy as
a walk in the woods." For Richard Graves, the only differ-
ences were more success in high school than expected
and going to a different college than planned. Dale Wil-
helm remembered, "I had thought that I would be alone
and lost, but I have discovered, with the help of friends,
that getting older is a lot of fun."
Yes, we have all had these feelings and memories, and
we sometimes wish we could go back a few years and be
young and irresponsible. But it is June, 1988, and it is
time for we seniors to get back to the future.

Class of 1988 has left behind some valuable and
hard-earned advice for next year's seniors and for
all seniors yet to be.
Lillian Upshaw offered this advice, "When in times of

trouble, remember there is someone you can count on-
G-O-D-for He loves us all." Missy Koup's suggestion was
"to take it seriously, keep your grades up, so you can get
into a good college. But also have fun and enjoy the short
four years." Tammy Devore said, "Get involved in activi-
ties. Get involved, and the next thing you know, you'll be
walking down the aisle." Shawna Upchurch, being of
sound mind, advised all underclassmen "to be all you can
be. To try and achieve what others say is unachieveablef'
David Robinson offered these thoughts: "Stay in school
no matter what happens or how hard life is . . . life is hard

these words for all to ponder: "Live long and prosper!"

The class began to laugh and make snide remarks. This
is a moment all of us have shared at one time or another.
When we are supposed to be paying attention in class, we
drift off into a far-away daydream. This daydreaming
primarily happens in school during classes which don't
keep our interest, during bad weather, or during those
days when we just feel like escaping our ordinary lives.
But students are not the only ones guilty of this conta-
gious habit, however. Faculty members cannot be ex-
cluded from this exercise, although they would probably
deny it. There is nothing wrong with daydreaming, in fact,
it is very healthy. However students must remember their
priorities and choose the appropriate place and time.
The following are daydreaming instructions from the
Class of 1988: 1l Make sure the daydreaming doesn't
occur during tests. 2l Practice keeping an intelligent,
listening expression on one's face while daydreaming. 3l
Keep the daydreams consistent to the subject matter of
the class. For example, dream about money in Economics
class, food in Home Economics, political power in U.S.
History. 4l Confine the daydream to a time limit of five
minutes. 5l Have no more than three daydreams during a

Some were seniors who enjoyed their last summer before

n their third year at Washington, juniors had mixed
feelings, they realized that they had futures to plan for,
but they also realized that they'd just become comfort-
ably installed at Washington. They were "little big men."
They had the years and experience to gain respect from
freshmen and sophomores - yes, they were still second
to seniors - but it felt good at school. Yet the pressure
was on to plan for "after Washington."
During the 1987-88 school year, junior Continentals
experienced some new challenges. Invest Indianapolis
started its pilot program at Washington and offered ju-
niors and seniors help in preparing for and finding jobs.
Juniors were the first juniors to ever take ISTER the state
competency test, and thus the first to have their gradu-
ation possibly affected by it. Next year as seniors, they
will be the first seniors to go five days longer to earn their
Continental juniors were quietly active in clubs, organi-
zations, and athletics. They showed school spirit by being
cheerleaders, ushers, student council members. Finally,
growing up, many got their first part-time jobs and first
cars. And a future without school loomed larger than
ever. They felt somewhat apprehensive, yet they craved
a time "when they could do their own thing." Juniors
would do it right.

tudents in Washington had notable entertainment
preferences in everything from places to shop and
eat to records and movies. What was in? What was out?
Movies that garnered Indy attention included "Robo-
cop" over the summer, "Fatal Attraction,', "Baby
Boom," "Three Men and a Baby," "Eddie Murphy's
Raw," "Wall Street," Steven Spielberg's newest "Empire
of the Sun." The locally filmed "Eight Men Out" encour-
aged would-be actors to show up as extras at various Indy
locations last fall.

Bateman, and Kirk Cameron. All three appeared in films
in the past year.
Concerts were many and varied. John Cougar Mellen-
camp performed at Market Square four times setting
records. Motley Crue, Aerosmith, Kiss, the Cars, Lover-
boy, Europe, Pink Floyd, and others came also.
New and old artists appeared on the scene. Samantha
Fox and Whitesnake established themselves as fresh,
strong, unewl' artists, Michael Jackson returned with
"Bad" to try and duplicate his "Thriller" success of five
Radio stations had unique personalities that caused
Continentals to like some better than others. WFBG with
Bob and Tom, WTLC, and FM 105 lknown for its rap
musicl each had a strong following. WENS, with its nightly
love songs, and WZPL, the contemporary rock station
also had Continental listeners.
Shopping centers that people favored varied. Several
students, including Andrea Tyler, Missy Miller, Treena
Freeman, and Pam Graves voted Greenwood Mall the
best place to go. Keith Lewis, Randy Crawford, Grant
I-Ienry, and Shawn Smith preferred Lafayette Square.
Popular T.V. shows were "The Cosby Show," "Grow-
ing Pains," "Alf," "Cheers," and "Saturday Night Live."
And where did students say they had the best time?
Some, including Mike Hylton, Michelle Robinson, Scott
Freeman, and Anthony Montgomery said Oliver's.
Dionne Reese favored Disneyland while Jose Johnson
suggested Kings Island. Jody McMiller, Carla Copeland,
and many others insisted Union Station offered the best
time. -Angela Sisson

Seniors weren't the only ones with set career plans.
Junior Ryan Weatherford planned a career in aerospace

Laura Matthews said, "I hope to have a career in busi-
ness, either as a file clerk or an accountant." And yes,
some freshmen had a career in mind. Sandra Wilkerson
wanted "to become a legal aid assistant."
When trying to decide upon a future career, Washing-
ton students might also consider some recent U.S. Labor
Department projections. It projected that the 1995 job
market will be very different from today's. Workers in
computers, electronics, the medical field, and the service

for stenographers, factory workers, and private house-
hold workers, it predicted.
As Washington students pondered their futures during
this school year, many realized the hard work and com-
mitment it would take to meet ambitious goals. Excelling
was a matter of "to each his own."

freshman year, but also another year for growth, a year to
both try out new things and settle down at school.
GWHS sophomores during the 1987-88 school year
were doing all the things expected and more. Most were
old enough to take drivers' education, some found first
jobs. In the course of the year, some turned "sweet six-
teen," and sadly some made the decision to drop out of
school. They began to look forward to the future, to
proms and work programs for which theyld be eligible.
They were busy, the sophomores became more involved
with school organizations now that they had adjusted to
high school ways. And throughout the year, they created
memories of many "first" experiences.
By the end of the year, sophomores began to feel like
upperclassmen. They had enough experiences at school
to be confident with their peers, to walk with their heads
held high. But, they also knew that they had two challeng-
ing years left - years in which they would have to work
hard and not give up.

tions, and so often have many special memories of times
when friends have helped them. Washington students
have such memories - no less than others.
"My friends helped me through my cousin's death,"
Sandra Wilkerson said, while Eve Fritsch remembered
that her friends helped her "when my mom and I used to
fight." Angie Wallace commented that her friends helped
"when my parents divorced." Besides helping her get
over a change in relationships, Elaine Cook's friends
helped her through "the loss of my grandfather." Ericka
Galvin said that friends "helped me cope with it" when
she faced her mother's death. Laura Matthews, too, re-
membered friends helping her when "I needed money to
buy things at school." Michelle Yates received support
from her friends when she broke up with her boyfriend,
and "I needed someone to talk to."
Naturally, the 1987-88 school year was a time with
both ups and downs, and naturally, it was a time during
which to make friends and spend time with them. As one
looks back on the year, itls easy to appreciate friends and
how they've been helpful during trying times.

hat happens when high school students have free
time? How do they spend it?
Students at GWHS tended to have many ways to
spend their free time, some ways were typical of teens,
others were unusual. Continentals had a particularly
wide range of interests. While some students enjoyed
talking on the telephone or lgaspll, reading, one student
spent time taking flying lessons. Others enjoyed doing
community and hospital volunteer work, playing basket-
ball at the local center, or just watching television.
Some students had several hobbies. Joe Kilmer, for
example, listed his hobbies as "following the Washington

Redskins, chasing girls, and working on cars." Dionne
Reese spent time "baton twirling, playing the violin, shop-
ping, and watching soap operas." Eric Williams said his
hobbies were "driving a car with the attitude and instinct
of a race car driver, listening to good music, and trying to
have some kind of fun." Niki Parmerlee also admitted to
several hobbies: "shopping, doing gymnastics, cheerlead-
ing, and partying!"
A few students spent most of their free time involved
with school organizations and groups. For instance, Eva
I-Iibbert said that - besides homework - her time was
divided between "sports and cheerleading." Anthony
Montgomery was another involved student who split his
time between "working for the Student Council and swim-
Then, there were several students who concentrated
their free time on one or two things. Jada Hill spent her
time "reading, listening to the radio, and talking on the
phone." Scott Haddix enjoyed "playing basketball and
football." "Building models" was a favorite pastime of
Kenneth Ray. The preferred hobby of Jenny Butler was,
classically, "dancing" Sharisse Smith liked "playing bas-
ketballf' And Michelle Yates revealed that her hobbies
were "swimming and playing baseball."
So if teens are interested in everything from listening to
records to collecting stamps to volunteering, maybe there
isn,t such a thing as a atypical teenager."

Discovering classes, clubs, and special programs, Con-
tinental freshmen made many adjustments and discover-
ies. They were introduced to RCTC and swimming
classes. Twenty-five minute lunch periods meant eating
fast. On the first floor, they had entered the East Gym
back in September to pick up their class schedules. On
the second floor, some became familiar with the Media
Center or the Deans Office. On the third floor, they en-
countered the somewhat confusing room numbering sys-
tem, and some even found the fourth floor. There were
not only two gyms and a swimming pool, but also a sepa-
Some experiences were unique to the class of 1991.
They had been the first to take the state competency test
IISTEPJ back in the eighth grade, and some had become
the first to have to enroll in summer school to study for
and retake the ISTEP test. And some had to work with a
remediation teacher in their English classes during the
first semester - again in order to pass the required test.
These freshmen realized that they would have to work
harder and take more classes and put in more days at
school in order to earn their high school diploma.
Many of the class of 1991 conquered the dreaded
freshmen year, and they will go on to eventually gradu-
ate. But not all the freshmen who entered the doors of
"George's Place" last fall will leave with a diploma. June,
1991 will hold something else for them.
Physical education class is required of all freshmen. It requires several skills
to be demonstrated as these freshmen show.

tudents at Washington High School was estimated to
have used around 1,000 or so different excuses each
year. Students have used excuses for everything from
leaving school early or being late to school to not doing
homework or delaying a test.
Some of the most commonly used excuses for leaving
school early were "My pants just ripped, or "I just got
sick," and "I have dentist f doctor appointment," or may-
be as Niki Parmerlee put it, "My hair was fried after
Homework excuses were equally creative. As sopho-
more Claudette Brown said, "I don't have my homework
done because my dog knocked over the aquarium with
my pet piranha which then ate my dog who had eaten my
homework." When teachers asked other students for
their homework, they were given such answers as "lt got
washed in the laundry," or "It's in my locker," "I forgot to
take my book home," "I had a lot of other homework to
do," and the old standby: "I didn't understand it." This
comes 24 hours after the teacher explained it thoroughly
in class while students nodded and said they already
The late to school excuses were more predictable.
They included "I missed the bus," or perhaps, "My hair
just wouldn't do right," or more commonly, "I slept latef'

t one time or another everyone probably remem-

memorable experiences from school. For many these
happenings occurred mostly in the freshman year.
A lot of students found the entire adjustment to high
school from junior high frightening. There was such a big
change from junior high. There were more people in high
school, and they were all so big and sure of themselves.
The building itself seemed huge, and there were so many

eens are concern d
hat problems were teens confronting in the 1987-
88 school year, and why? Continentals were no
different from teenagers across the country when they
expressed their worries and concerns.
Several students said that peer pressure was the great-
est problem afflicting teens. Leann Selmier felt that peer
pressure influenced drug use, "Kids pressure one another
into taking drugs." Claudette Brown said it contributed to
kids "using drugs, drinking, and having sex on dates."
Lori Smith was thinking along the same lines: "Drugs are
usually taken because of peer pressure, or wanting to be
like everyone else." Perhaps Kim Jones summed up this
problem when she said, "Teenagers are pressured into a
lot of things by their friends that they really don't want to
Teen pregnancy was also mentioned as a problem that
bothered teens. Diane Freels thought that teen pregnancy
was a problem "because teens aren't financially ready to
take care of babies, and their bodies aren't ready to have
babies." Again Lori Smith had a comment: "Teen preg-
nancy is a problem all over the world because everyone is
too quiet or scared to talk about birth control." Phyllis
Clark pointed out, "Teen pregnancy bothers teens be-
cause so many are pregnant these days and can't take
care of their kids and end up expecting their parents to
take care of their kids."
Besides peer pressure, drug use, and teen pregnancy,
teens brought up other valid problems. Sean Hommel, for
instance, suggested that nuclear holocaust was a possibil-
ity and said, "lThe idea of itl really scares me." Deandra
Brooks, however, was concerned by the spread of AIDS,
saying it caused teens to worry about "the way their life
will be when they graduate." Also, Rex Slater pointed out
that economic problems bothered teens this year, particu-
larly those bound for school after graduation. "With the
rising cost of living expenses, we always seem to come up
quite a bit short."
Teens at GWHS were affected by many of the major
concerns of young people and just hoped they would be
able to cope.

ime. to go
his year, as in years past, Georges Place has been a hangout
for hundreds, a warm atmosphere for friends, and a place for
emotional debate. Georges Place has also been a meeting
ground where students and teachers learn from one another.
Now, Georges Place has come to the end of another year. The
1988 POST recorded the names, faces, memories, and happenings
that made the year special. The staff gave its best to make each event
of the year come alive on the pages of the yearbook.
The POST staff would like to extend its thanks to Root Photogra-
phy and photographers Dick Dickus and Ed Sims for taking the
photos. For publishing the 1988 POST, we, the staff, send our appre-
ciation to Delmar Company and its representative, Jim Sweeney, for
his advice. We would especially like to express our gratitude to Miss
Davis for her time and devotion to make this years book a success.
Thanks also to all the teachers who allowed the staff to interrupt
their classes for pictures. Finally, thank you, students of G.W.H.S. for
answering our surveys and for being so cooperative when the staff
The 1988 POST staffs goal this year was to make sure that as
many students were included as possible. We have come as close as
possible to achieving this goal.
Georges Place thanks you. Please come again.
