The years have passed and we sometimes wonder what we are
still doing in school. What is it for? Why are we here?
There are reasons that we come to school. We may come to see
our friends, to be with them and to share with them. We may come
to learn what to escape from our house, our parents or reality.
When we are busy we tend to forget the bad times, the sad times.
All of these things may be good or bad, fun or sad, but they all
are part of our lives. We learn to cope with our electives. It is part of
our lifelong process of growing. We must learn to deal with the
intricate details of our lives.

The students at Gilbert High are individually
unique. Their oneness and gratitude for each other
grows day by day throughout the year. That explains
the tears of joy and sorrow experienced by the graduat-
ing class during their annual departure. Therefore, in-
dividuals who attend and participate in pep assemblies,
sports, and audiences find themselves filled with a
sense of confidence, not only in the team members but
within themselves. There's just something about GHS
students when they see excitement in the expressions of
their fellow classmates that gives even the underclass-
men inner pizzazz.

Sports are a large part of high school activities. If there weren't any
sports then there would be no way for students to relieve the tension
from homework. Sports are a way to be a part of the school and many
benefits come with sports. It's a way to keep from crawling into a shell
away from other students. Also, sports allow people from one school to
make friends with other people from other schools. To receive these
benefits, the students involved have to train hard. They also, must
have self-discipline and determination to be successful in sports.
The time that is spent on practicing a sport gives you the feeling of
participation and that alone is all some people need to be involved in
sports. Although some people need more than just a committment to
get involved with sports, some need a chance to show their hard work
by getting a school letter. Perhaps the outcome isn't that great, but to
know you were a part of it is still a good feeling.

This year's Junior Varsity football team was very suc-
cessful. They completed their season with a record of
seven wins and one loss. This dedicated group of athletes
were determined to have an excellent season, and they did.
The coaches were blessed with their performance, and
with the outcome of the season. After all the sweat and
injuries, they felt it was all worthwhile.

record. Much hard work and time was contributed by all the team members and the
reward was a second place finish in conference. They also went to state and finished

Out of all the sports offered at school, girls' basketball becomes one of the most
competitive, not because of what goes on during the season, but what
happens in determining who plays where. They do this by having
practices everyday. They practice for at least 2 hours each day in
order to accomplish what they need in order to beat their
competitors. We are very sorry that we could not include all
the scores from their wins and losses, but the season was
not over, and we needed to make the deadline. I'm
sure that these girls are very proud of them-
selves, and they should be, because they have
done a very nice job. We are going to miss
the seniors that won't be with us next
year, because they will be gradu-
ating, but the team members

Anyone who has ever been an athlete
knows that participating in sports re-
quires a lot of self-discipline. Wrestling
is a challenge! The sport of wrestling can
be very strenuous in the sense that some
wrestlers have to cut a lot of weight, and
wrestling is a one on one sport. You do
not have the team members there to help
you out if you get in a jam during your
individual match, but the team support
and spirit is always felt.
On the wrestling team this year there
was a tremendous amount of self com-
mitment. This commitment is what
made the team so successful this year.

Anyone who has ever been an athlete knows
that participating in sports requires much self-
discipline. Throughout the wrestling season, most
of the wrestlers have to go on very strict diets.
Some even have to practically starve themselves
in order to get down to the weight they want.
Whether they had to lose weight or not, all wres-
tlers went through strenuous training to get in
shape for the season. There is a tremendous
amount of self commmitment. Wrestling is a
skilled art that can only be achieved through hard
work. "Being a wrestler relieves a lot of aggres-
sion. Sometimes wrestling can get rough, and you
have to remember, "What won't kill you, will
only make you stronger!" according to Varsity
Wrestler Leland Baker.

"Any last words" as the tiger be-

Our Kind of Town
Every year there is a camp - Any town
that is held three times over the summer.
Delegates are chosen their sophomore or
junior year to attend camp. Unfortunately
not enough people know about or under-
stand Anytown, and so not very many peo-
ple attend Anytown. It is a one week camp
held at Sky Y and Mingus Mountain camp-
grounds in Prescott, Arizona. One spends
the week in cabins away from home and
everyday life. Anytown is a "leadership and
human relations-hips experience." What
does this mean? As a delegate one learns of
and discusses the many issues and problems
of todays society. In this years camp we
discussed knowing yourself, your friends,
family, community, the world, awareness of
prejudice, male and female roles, and cul-
ture. There is a lot of discussion so you can
learn how others feel about certain issues
while you express your view point.
Anytown isn't all just discussion. There is
a lot of fun activities held throughout the
week that brings the delegates closer to-

Four very strong Seniors lead the team, but the
overwhelming success is due to the large number of
strong new members - mostly Sophomores. The
group meets and practices all year, with the old
members coaching new ones.

What is M.E.C.H.A.? M.E.C.H.A.
stands for Movement Educational for
Chicano De Aztlan. Members of the
club met twice a week where they dis-
cussed fund raising and learned of their
heritage and opportunities for hispanics.
Throughout the year, the M.E.C.H.A.
Club raised money for various communi-
ty service activities. The profits made
were given as scholarships for the club
members and donations for the needy.
While the Spanish Club worked with the
Spanish language, M.E.C.H.A. strived
for the betterment of Mexican people
and sharing of their culture, past and
present, with the rest of the school.

plays a unique role in the classroom.
Whether it is Physics or foods, each will
fulfill a student's goal.
Academics is more than just taking
classes and receiving grades. It is a means
of preparing for the future and careers. It
provides for the strengthening of friend-
ships and furthering school unity.
While academics is mainly associated
with the school day, it goes beyond that. Of
course there is homework like math and
term papers, but there is also on the job
training and more.
Whether it is solving a math problem or a
lab in physics, or a dress in Home Econom-
ics, academics effects every student.

English may not be the most liked subject in school, yet it's the subject we
will use almost everyday of our lives. English gives us the chance to put our
thoughts on paper to show our teachers what we really can do.
English isnit just commas, verbs, and adjectives. We also learn a whole new
world of literature from some of the worldis greatest writers.
English helps us, not only in communicating better, it also helps us in other
classes as well. There are reports to write in other classes, such as in History
class or a lab report in a Science class, or some kind of extra credit in a P.E. and
English may be hard to learn, but once you grasp the basic ideas it is a very
valuable tool to a successful future in whatever you may do.

The New ance Club
The new dance club was
actually one of the most ac-
tive clubs. Every day, first
hour, these girls danced and
worked hard for their perfor-
mances and presentations.
This year, the members
had a terrific attitude about
rehearsals and practices.
They knew that it was the
only way to achieve perfec-
tion and applause.
The students in the dance
club mainly develop better
techniques and skills by
thinking up creative ideas to
put together for a perfor-
mance, or even just for fun.
The great thing about being
in advanced dance is the
freedom of dancing.
Dancing not only helps
improve your physical body,
but also the mind. Making it
up, memorizing the dance,
and determining what looks
good and coordinated are
things that can easily boggle
your mind, so that is where

feeling the same butterflies

great support, devotions and
dedication, the dance club
would just be another club
that never had the fair

The dance club was not
purposely developed. In or-
der to be allowed to sell any
item as a fund raiser, or raise
money in any way or activity,
the students had to form a
club, or already have one.

and outfits, they decided
they had better start the new
club so they could cover the
expenses. This is the first

Clothing I, 2, and 3 starts with simple topics
like the proper use of a sewing machine and
understanding a pattern to broader topics such
as preparation of delicate fabrics and pattern
alterations. The students in Clothing 3 will
even make a pair of designer jeans.
Foods l and 2 and Gourmet Foods start
with basic cookies and teaches the students to
prepare a nutritious meal. Gourmet Foods
covers meals preparation from foreign coun-
tries. This class also gets into career opportu-
Creative Home Arts teaches skills such as
quilting, embroidery, cross stitich, and needle-
point. Child Development is a study of chil-
dren and their social, emotional, mental and
physical development. On Your Own helps
students acquire skills that they will need after
they leave home and are living independently.
Human Relations is a study of effective meth-
ods of improving skills in getting along with
other people and learning how to improve
abilities to handle conflict situations and de-
veloping positive family living skills.
Each Home Economics class will allow each
student to benefit in some way.

What does physical education mean to you?
Do you picture sweaty bodies, sore muscles and a
lot of dedicated conditioning? Most people do.
But, physical education is an opportunity to fur-
ther your physical well being to either a healthier
or stronger point.
These classes provide a lot of chances for en-
durance and sportsmanship. It helps an individ-
ual to discipline themselves from laziness by
opening the doors to see their physical awareness.
Students are required to take at least one year
of P.E. at Gilbert High. This helps students, and
most students remember their activities and fun
they had in this class throughout their lives.
Therefore, this encourages them in later years to
stay active and fit.

fidence in us.

Mathematics is the science of numbers, their op-

their structure and measurement. There are many
math classes to choose from, everything from basic
Math to Computers is offered. Two math credits are
required for graduation. There are students, howev-
er, that go beyond this in order to go to college. Math
can be a very difficult and strenuous class. Paula
Arave says, "Math is the hardest class I've ever
taken. Everf, But, if you do make it through the
course it will prove to be useful in life. As a new
technological age approaches, Math is more and
more important to know. Mathematics is becoming
a part of our everyday lifes. Gilbert High has many
qualified teachers that help students in this area. It
just proves what education can do to a person's lives.

The primary aim ofthe Vo-Ag and
the Future Farmers of America is to
develop agricultural leadership, citi-
zenship and cooperation. It is an or-
ganization for students preparing for
careers in the industry of agriculture.
They will be leaders of farm market- NR
ing groups and livestock producer or-

agricultural experience in FFA and
Vo-Ag will enable these young agri-
culturists to assume agricultural
leadership roles in the future. Mem-
bers take field trips, participate in lo-

DCE, Diversified Cooperate Education is a
program for any senior who would like to be on
Ll work program. They still go to school, but
they can either get out of school early or go to
work after school. They have a DCE class dur-
ing school and students can take this class or
do it on an individual basis. If someone decid-
ed to be in DEC they would go and talk to Mrs.
Lull and she finds the kind of a job that they
would like to have. DEC class lasts for a year
and then your job is over unless the people
want to keep you on. The advantages of DCE
ure, you go to school, get paid with a job
through school and you could have a perma-
nent job. l think DEC is a very good exper-
ience that GHS students should get into. Mrs.
Lull is the students director of DCE and she
has been very helpful and has done a very good
job with the DCE program throughout the

Talk about hard working people! This group
of young, talented students worked harder
than most people would imagine to make this
book one they'd consider a masterpiece. Their
dedication is what keeps this yearbook ad-
vancing to better student representation com-
pared to many other schools. From their first
deadline to the last, they worked together as a
team to produce a yearbook unlike any that
has come out of Gilbert High School before.
The photographers accomplish more than
most people ever could trying to make it to
each game whether it would be football, vol-
leyball, or basketball in order to make their
picture deadlines. The layout people struggle
just as hard to write copy and to get their
layouts finalized before the deadline dates.
The typist worked just as hard to get all the
copy typed correctly in order to get the layouts
all finished so that we could mail the layouts.
The editors spent many long and fun hours
over the summer going to yearbook camp so
they would know exactly what to do, and how
to set up the yearbook. Many long hours are
spent by everyone on the staff in order to meet
the deadlines. On our first deadline the Post
Office even stayed open five minutes after
closing just so we could mail our first deadline
in on time.
Now that's what I call TIGER

The areas cover math, English, and

Micro-computers are a big part of
this program. This helps students to
not only make regular subjects easier,
but to prepare them for the required
computer skills in the future.

on time. It works!!

As a child takes his first step in life, he has to let go of that protective
and guiding hand. Likewise, the 1984 graduating class moves their
tassels and take that first step.
Looking back on the simple life fthat seemed so confusing at the timej
of Scooby-Doo lunch boxes, coloring books, jacks and marbles, we won-
der how things got so complicated. We realize we have great memories
and good experiences to treasure, but each of us hopes the success of the
terrific times continues throughout our lives.

Finally, the moment we've been wait-

asking seniors what steps they're taking
after June 6th, the responses are incredi-
Some are having full time jobs, some
are going to college. Within each step,
most seniors agree that leaving high
school is one of the scariest moves some-
one could make in their life. "But, hey,
we can handle it!"

part of living. Grade school friends were
basically friends to occupy your time
with, junior high, clicks and groups start
and you lose the closeness of certain rela-
tionships and in high school you usually
find that there is one special someone
who sticks with you and gets you
through the hard times, and survives the
fun and exhausting challenges.
Jean, Jeff, Howard, Roy,
Alex, Arnold, and Jim
Remember how the two of you solved the problems at the oddest
places and talked for hours about almost nothing? Yet, at this
point, you could state what their best qualities are, because, that
person is the one you have shared the details of becoming an adult
and all of its adventures with.
It's now time to rely only on yourself to make the dicision that
will decide which way your life will go. That friend is still their for
support, but the rest is up to you.
Best wishes and good luck.

The Gilbert High students not a lot of
pride, they also have a lot of talent. The
Gilbert High School Variety Arts Show
gave students the chance to show their
stuff. The Variety Arts Show was held
February 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the school
auditorium. The show had singing and
dancing and was divided into two acts:
Act one consisted of an instrumental
of the Love Theme from Flashdance per-
formed by Kevin Beals, Danny Bliss,
Blair Holt, and James Myers. Lori
Cook, Lori Hamblin, Cheryl Negley,
Lisa Thomson, Lynette White, and Lisa
Willman performed the song "I Eat
Cannibals." Even teachers got in on the
act. Science teacher, Mr. Ed Grabowski
played his guitar and sang "Scarbor-
ough Fairf' Juniors, Shelly Liles, Misty
Splittorff, and Sharon Trent performed
a dance to the song "Manhunt,'. The
ballad "Two Less Lonely People in the
World" was sung in a duet by Chrissy
Cooley and LaNae Turley and accompa-
nied by Paula Arave. Michael Rosales
and Robert Rosales did a break dance
routine to the song "Heartbreaker".

They say the Junior year is considered the hardest throughout the high
school years. There are many pressures put on the Junior class such as
raising money for prom, making good grades, setting a good example for the
sophomores, but in the same respect living up to the standards of the senior
With all the pressure put on the junior class, they learned that you can't
lay the responsibilities on just one person: you have to work together as a
team and thatls exactly what the junior class did.
Many people took time out of their weekends to work in the concession
stand at the football games to raise money for prom. Some students took
time after school to work on the Homecoming float. Still others sold
calendars and key chains. There were also the junior class sponsors:
Mrs. Curby and Mrs. Crawford.

but no one likes to admit it. The soph-
omore class has life rough! They are
picked on, put down, and laughed at,
and few upperclassmen take time to
get to know them as real people.
Actually the sophomore year is the
easiest high school year. There are
hardly any fund raisers to worry
about, there are no big tests to take,
like PSAT or SAT, and there are no
applications to fill out for college.
Stepping up from the Junior High
is actually a step down in rank for the
sophomores. With the change howev-
er come many advantages. The high
school is an open campus with fast
food restaurants close by. For many it
means a later curfew and even a li-
cense. As one sophomore put it, "Be-

School. The one word that all of us have hated
and loved at one time or another. Whether we
were taking a critical exam or cheering a team on
to victory, Gilbert High is and always will be an
important part of our lives.
Being a member of a 1,200 family, we often
walked alone to classes or sat quietly observing a
rowdy pep assembly. Even so, when a day went
wrong there was always a friendly face that
would be found.
Together we stood tall and were proud to be
from Gilbert High. We challenged our goals and
expanded our destinations. We involved ourselves
in clubs, friendships, and special relationships.
School. The one word that will bring back
cherished memories of our priceless moments
spent at the home ofthe TIGER!

Gilbert students have a lot of pride for it's sports and
academic achievements. They also have a lot of pride and joy
for their cars.
Whether it's an '84 Porsche or '57 Chevy, the students at
Gilbert prove that they love their cars. Some more than
others. "I love my car, I'd die without it." Some feel their
car is a means of getting there. "It's just a means of getting
there, it's not very nice to look at, but it gets the job done."
Still others are praying for the day they can quit riding the
bus. "lt is embarrassing riding the bus with the Jr. High
kids. " "I hate having to catch a ride with my friends." "Not
having a car means not being able to go places when I want
Gilbert students aren't the only ones who treasurer their
cars, the teachers do too. Gilbert teachers seem to value their
cars as well as their grade book.
Cars aren't the only means of getting to school. School
buses, though some students hate to admit, are another way
of getting to school. The buses aren't the most comfortable
and fashionable way of going places, yet it does the job.
It doesn't matter how you get there, as long as it does it's
job. Cars . . . Gilbert's Pride and Joy.

school day people are ready to start

Who knows what happens to stu-
dents once the final bell rings. The
campus clears of most people while
others must stay and fulfill their re-
sponsibilities. Throughout the year
people stay at school for football,
choir, dance, basketball, cheer, band,
track, or any other activityg while oth-
ers go home or go to work.
You can see people race out of the
parking lot or running to catch the
bus. There is practice after school al-
most everyday for different sports
throughout the year. Other students
have jobs or just go home. Lisa Rose
said, "I go straight to work at the
movie theater right after school."
Dawn Buckner said, "I go home, lis-

Students took quite a few fashion risks. Hair-
styles changed drastically. Guys as well as
girls had tails in their hair. Ankel boots, Con-
verse hightops and plastic sandles were the
cool shoes to wear.
The oriental look was also popular. Tattered
sweatshirts splashed with paint could be seen
on campus. Leather jackets, stylish hats, and
oversized shirts were in fashion. Along with
these new styles, remained the old styles.
Faded levi's the preppy look, and just normal
clothes were still acceptable.

Once a Tiger
As the year came to a close, Gilbert students looked back over
the year to see the achievements they had made and the places they
had fallen. Both would affect their lives in the future. The Seniors,
class of 1984, took a long look back, way back to the year when they
were freshmen. They had come a long way since then academical-
ly, physically, and mentally. They had their year on top, now it was
time to take another step ahead. Some went to work, still others
didn't know what they wanted to do, but as they looked back they
realized that Gilbert had prepared them to take one more big step
forward and what they had learned at Gilbert would always stay
The Juniors, class of 1985, got to take over at the top of the
ladder. They had already started planning their Senior year.
Graduation was the biggest question to new seniors, what would
they do after they graduate? Would they still be with their friends?
Would they even have enough credits to graduate? But as they
looked back they also had come a long way and do not have much
further to go before they too graduate.
Junior, Jeff Morrow, being his own unusual self.

The Sophomores, class of 1986, were looking forward to becoming
upperclassmen, preparing for prom, new cars and a lighter sched-
ule. This was their first year at Gilbert High and they anticipate
many things to happen in their future years.
Each and every student had learned something to take with them
as they moved up in life. Whether it was what they wanted to do in
life, where they wanted to go to college, an equation in algebra, or
just how to make a clay pot, each achievement pushed them for-
ward. Many took a fall when they failed a class, didn't make a
sports team, or lost a close friend in all the hustle of high school life.
But they still pushed forward to the day when they would graduate.
ln all the excitement, happiness, and hard work, each student left

As we look back on 1984, we see a lot of crazy, serious and
distinct experiences. Remember lighting your desk on fire
with an alcohol burner in Lab Biology, ditching for the first
time CAFTER your sophomore yearj, staying home Prom
Night, and of course, overcoming those hard classes isome-
times with the help of the kid sitting next to youj?
High school provides a lot favorable memories for many
people, regardless of the consequences you pay for having a
little "too" much fun. With parental support, teacher encour-
agement, and patience from your peers, the laughter and good
times get you through it all, even though you somethimes
seem to get lost in the confusion of pace-setting.
lt's hard to forget those silly and embarrassing things you
do, but, it's the daring and exciting challenges you set and
overcome. That's what makes life easy to handle. Remember
