Some of the events are the same. some are new. but one thing that remains con- stant is that they take people to make them happen. This year Governor Dummer has had the calibre of people to make the school go. lt has had a balance between good and not so good. There will always be those who refuse to cooperate and commit themselves to the community. but this year somehow these people have not been a hindrance to the smooth operation of the school. The abundance of leadership in the senior class. and the overwhelming numbers of people who commited them- selves this year in one way or another, have made it DOS- sible to disregard that minority of non-doers. lt would be foolish to say that the amount of drinking or pot smok- ing decreased but the vein and frame of mind in which these activities occurred was different. The attitude this year was more one of fun rather than escape from the school or in hatred towards the school. Tl'llS. of coure, in no way excuses the breaking of a rule. but this author contends that the attitude towards the act is also important. People who in the past have been less active somehow were inspred this year and joined the group of those who found satisfaction. reward and challenge in athletics. dramatics and all community activities. An important thing to note about this year is that people seemed to care more for personal relationships. Although every friendship or boy girl combination didn't work there were those that were worth while to remember.

People seemed kinder to one another. The struc- ture and rigidity between the classes seemed to have been less prevalent this year. Seniors talked and played with members of other classes as equals: all of the classes seemed to mix well, almost to the point of complete assimilation of grade levels. The adjust- ment to a new Headmaster was in no way unnatural. In the beginning lVlr. Ragle and students clashed alit- tle, but as we grew to know him and he to know us things began to operate as they should. Athletics, while not dominating the school, played a part in most everyones life. On the freshman level there was not that much talent to brag about, but the attitude that the kids had. made up for any deficiency any- where else. lf by now, the reader has not gotten the idea that this year was a good one, he has not read very much. The key words were friendship and commitment. The faculty were a special breed of people this year. Mixing all the old faithfuls with a bit of new blood caused a balance that was not only inspirational in the classroom but responsible for the brewing of dedication in the students. A school will always oper- ate better when everyone concerned does more than asked of him. The faculty and the students this year have made a combination that was unbeatable: two dedicated forces working toward a better school and community. A promiment faculty member once said, "A school is more than a business, it is a shared ideal." One might still ask, what has this year been?The answer for most of us lies within, but for the most part it has been a year filled with commitment and a year where more personal relationships have blos- somed, rather than died. This author hopes that the school years to come can be as meaningful to the individual as this one. It is through the individuals satisfaction that the satisfaction of the group is attained.
