My Dear Students,
HDestiniesH is a very fine theme for your 1985 Yearbook.
In your young lives, as teenagers, there is so much to
live for. Each of you, we might say, is destined to be
someone special, to accomplish certain things during
your life. However, whatever you become, whatever you
achieve, cannot interfere with God's plan for you -
your destiny to live in happiness and peace with Him
for all eternity.
Be open and receptive to the Lord's generous gifts of
grace, so that your ultimate destiny will be realized.
Be not afraid. May God's peace be with you!
Faithfully yours in Christ,
Most Reveren omas J. O'Brien
Bishop of Phoenix

the Seniors give a little of the attention
that they received as Freshmen back to
the new lower classmen . . . it's all in

everyone has to experience to under

delegates got to go to Anytown, USA
The first group of delegates: Ginnyl

of delegates: Scott Green, Mary Jea

last night was the night which none o
the delegates looked forward to. Ther

TIME TO MDVE ON
T As everything must come to an end so does Dr
l Brandt's time at Gerard. After ten years of pure dedicaf
tion we will be saying good bye to a truly wonderful mai'
and principal. This departure isn't easy for Dr, Brandt ol
the students who have grown to be a family in the pas
Dr. Brandt has put a lot of time into making Gerara
Catholic High School the best place to be and it is evi
dent that he has been successful in performing this task
There will be many things which the school will remem
ber Dr. Brandt for, especially his famous mottos. Ever
though students laugh when they hear these motto
they know what is meant by "we're not all chocolat
chip cookies" and that "we need to get over the fence.'
Dr, Brandt has always talked about having a goo
relationship with the Lord, Dr. Brandt is a very Christiaj
person and he lets people know that having a goo
relationship with the Lord will always make things lood
The students at Gerard are going to really miss Dr
Brandt but the memories that he leaves will always b
there to help them make it through all the good and bag
times. To show our thanks, the yearbook staff has tak'
en this opportunity to dedicate the l985 yearbook t
Dr. Robert G. Brandt. We hope you will be able to looa
back on this yearbook with great memories of Gerard
We wish you the best of luck and hope you get all you,
want out of life because you deserve it.
God Bless You Dr. Brandt we love you!

Dr. Brandt being his usual friendly self.
Dr. Sheridan has been a
very dedicated person as
Vice Principal at Gerard. With
the departure of Dr. Brandt,
Dr. Sheridan will have to get
used to working with another
partner but that should be no
problem for him because of
his great personality. Dr.
Sheridan, although he is the
disciplinarian, is a very easy
person to get along with.
Many students enjoy talking
to and being with Dr. Sheri-
dan because of his witty hu-
Not only is Dr. Sheridan
busy being Vice Principal and
the disciplinarian but he also
teaches sophomore AZ His-
tory and Geography. Now if
that isn't dedication!
Thank you Dr. Sheridan for
helping to make this year an-
other successtul year.
Such a busy man!
Now thot's rocky.

Former King and Queen with the new King and Queen.
I gotta catch up to him." "She'll never catch me."
The theme of this year's
Homecoming was 'lSafari."
A lot of work was put into
preparing for homecoming
week. Many committees
were formed and each of
these committees worked
hard on planning their event.
The week began on Octo-
ber 3 l st with Halloween. Stu-
dents were to come as their
favorite fictional character.
This day was followed by
Tacky Tourist day, and boy
were people tacky! Novem-
ber Znd wound up the theme
day. There was a pep assem-
bly where class competition
was held. The most spirited
class was the Sophomore
Class. The Seniors and Soph-
omores won the Homecom-
ing float competition. The
week was topped off with a
dance after the football
"I don't believe you iust took that."

A Mural ls Born
Gerard was involved in a major art pro-
ject last December. The Arizona Founda-
tion ofthe Arts provided us with a grant to
hire Zarco Guerrero, an artist in residence.
He helped us paint a mural with many reli-
gious symbols in an abstract form in the
Miss Nask, the coordinator of this pro-
ject, invited some of her Advanced Art,
along with a few Basic Art students, to par-
ticipate in the creation of this mural with
Zarco. The first few days were spent in-
venting a theme. Through the process of
elimination, the main ideas were collected
to create a painting which represented
The primary reason for doing this mural
in our chapel is to spiritually motivate and
inspire students while they attend Mass.
The scene symbolizes the future. The cen-
tral figure is Christ being resurrected from
explosion. Christ is amidst a galaxy of
planets and stars. The colors of the hori-
zon are seen in the background represent-
ing the hope for our future.
The process of painting the mural was
video taped so that the students can re-
member the creation of such a cultural
project. The students of Gerard should
achieve a sense of uniqueness from this
project, since we are the only school in
Phoenix so far to participate in a cultural
project of this type.
The beginning stages.

This year's science fair offered
many new attractions ranging from
basic projects to complex experi-
ments, dance routines to entertain
the young and old. All of the science
classes contributed a project of some
sort. Some of the projects had to do
with mice, computers, volcanoes,
electronics, and various other topics.
The Art department also contribut-
ed their share of work. Paintings
sketches, and collages were dis-
played on the walls and hung from
display boards. Poems were also
shared with the parents and stu-
To keep the entertainment going,
dances were performed by some of
the students who had dancing ability.
And music was provided by other stu-
dents as well. All and all, the Science
Fair was a night to remember.

Gerard's Defense Shows its Strength
Special Recognition to those members of the AA Central All-
Division Football Team
This years Varsity football team consisted of a group of spirited and dedicated individuals. As there was no
unior-Varsity team this year, the team members ranged in age from Sophomores to Seniors. The Redcoats
nad a very tough season, but they never lost that Redcoat Pride. A large number of the players are graduating
eniors, which means the team next year will be young. But with the experience that the younger members ac-
uired this year, along with their strong Redcoat spirit, we can look forward to next year's team with hope and
Mr. J. Relph, who coached Varsity Football from l97O-l 974 with a record 32 wins and 7 losses, became the
ew head coach this year. When asked how he felt about the team this year he replied:
ul would like to say three things. One, we really had very good personnel. Two, four of the five teams that we
ost to went into the state playoffs, and three, in the clutch situations we lacked confidence and panicked."
Mr. Relph hopes to take the team up North for a week this summer to practice and gain more team unity.
est of luck next year Mr. Relph and fellow Redcoats.

This year was one of triumph to
the girls varsity volleyball team. Be
sides being state champs, the:
were first in their division. The mair
reason for their success was thei
ability to work as a team. They a
knew that if they won they won at
a team not lust because of one o
a few people. Coach Burcham wa
also a factor to their winning sea
son. The team worked hard fron
the beginning ot the season, whicl
began in August, and did not qui
until the very last game which a
we all know was the STATl

Promise for the Future
Dave Wilson Paul Civitano Kurt Hofleit Dave Solar Darren Strunk Jim Duginski
The main purpose of freshmen boys baseball is
to build fundamental skills and to prepare the play
ers to succeed in Junior Varsity and Varsity base
ball. The key to a future in baseball in high school is
to learn to play as a team and work well at leading
as well as following orders. Mr. Louis Mallet was
the coach and Mr. Ed Malone assisted him.

'W c so g ln the past year, Campus Ministry has put to-

together the Spiritual and Communal aspects
here at Gerard.
Among the strengths has been the advantage
of a priest on campus as well as peer ministers
giving all an opportunity to discuss "problems,"
The ministry of students as peer ministers had
enhanced the program.
Another aspect ofthe program has been the
improved liturgical celebrations. The campus
ministry program has also been a help with the
Confirmation program. Over all, the Ministry

The Class of '85:
l-low We See Ourselves
In this world there is war, corruption, selfishness, and deceit. But
in the class of l985, there can be found warmth, compassion,
humor and integrity.
As a class, we are one, yet we are all individuals. All of us are
each other's keepers, as individuals in the class, we are never
completely empty or lacking. There is always someone there to
pick us up and remind us that we are all unique and special.
The class that we have become is one of many variations of
traits and personalities. When we find ourselves in a situation of
despair, the humor that lies within our class always seems to lighten
the load. The creativity that is expressed through our class can be
surprising. We can accomplish a variety of things such as symboliz-
ing our thoughts through paint on a wall and providing a liturgy that
will be remembered as a strong positive contribution to our school.
lt is very evident that our class has the power to strive and excel
in anything we set out to accomplish in our lives. Our leadership
and opinions provide a strong impression on our world which re-
volves around our class. lt is definite that the class of i985 of
Gerard Catholic High School has the great potential to achieve any
goals which we set for ourselves throughout the rest of our lives.

There are many people to whom we would like to give our thanks and deepest appreciation for thei
guidance and support in helping us make this yearbook be the best yearbook produced by a Gerard staff
We feel our deepest appreciation should go to none other than Mrs. Berges who took time out of he
already busy schedule to help us complete this yearbook. Upon learning that we would be without a modera
tor after Christmas, we realized that we desperately needed to find someone who would help us through th
rest of the year. We approached Mrs. Berges with our dilemma and she, without hesitation, said she would b
glad to help us. We wouldn't have been able to make it without you, Mrs. Berges, and we thank you with all ou
Mr. Miller can't go without thanks. l-le got us off to a good start this year and was always there to help u
even though we knew that he wouldn't be with us throughout the year. He never complained about having t
help us, he was always there with great support and guidance, Thank you, Mr. Miller.
Dr Brandt has always been willing to help out yearbook in every way possible. There were times when ther
almost wasn't a yearbook. Dr. Brandt knew how much it meant to the students to have a yearbook so h
always worked it out so we could have one. So, with great pride we dedicate this yearbook to Dr. Brandt for hi
positive outlook on yearbook. Gerard will miss you a great deal, Dr. Brandt, but we hope you will be able t
look back on this yearbook and on Gerard with great satisfaction and memories.
We would also like to thank all those members of the yearbook staff for their dedication and sense o
responsibility to the yearbook. We received a lot of help this year and hope the support of yearbook wil
Of course the one person whom we all should acknowledge and thank is Our Father. Without the strengt
and guidance of the Lord we know we wouldn't have made it through all the difficult times during yearbook
We hope all of you have enjoyed this yearbook and can look back on it with good memories of the pas
