Keeping KHS students in line were
eans Mrs. Shirley Booth and Mr.
oloman Wesley. The positions of
ach of these two people were unique
it that, eventually, as the year pro-
ressed, they came in contact with vir-
ually every student in the school. This
ontact made them more aware of the
ocial and academic problems with
Jhich students had to dealg thus, they
Jere in a position to help many stu-
.ents through counselling.
Mrs. Shirley Booth has been
Dean of Women since 1968. She,
is did Mr. Wesley, dealt with atten-
dance, early dismissals, discipline and
tardies, she also arranged the
homebound instruction program for any
student who had to be out of school
for a long period of time. In addition,
she counselled students who had diffi-
culty coping with the problems of fam-
ily, peers, or school pressures. Invalu-
able to her were student aids of whom
she had at least two every period.
They filed, ran errands, and answered
the telephone when Mrs. Booth was oc-
cupied with her other duties.
Before becoming Dean of Men,
Mr. Wesley was a government
teacher at Kecoughtan. His main
duty as dean was discipline. Although
suspension was his least preferable
form of punishment, he did not hesitate
to use it when necessary. Maintaining
school records as related to attendance
took up a majority of Mr. Wesley's
time as did the processing of student
re-entries and new students.
Undeniably, the deans were a very
important part of the administration at
KHS. The proficiency with which they
performed in their respective areas
helped to make Kecoughtan a smooth-

Beginning his second year as princi-
pal of Kecoughtan High School was
Mr. Dennis O. Gillikin. Because he
enjoyed working with students, Mr.
Gillikin decided to become a principal
and secured his masters degree in ad-
ministration with that end in mind. He
recalls his first year at Kecoughtan as
a successful one and was confident
that he could reach his goals just as
successfully this year.
The 1981-82 school year was Mr.
Thomas E. Bailey's second year at
Kecoughtan as assistant principal
where his primary duty was to develop
the master schedule and work with the
various course offerings. The adminis-
trator who has been at Kecoughtan the
longest was Mr. Larry Waddell who
supervised student activities including
the athletic department. Assistant prin-
cipal Mr. Harold Johns' main duty
was building supervision.
Among the other duties performed
by the assistant principals were curricu-
lum development, coordination of guid-
ance services, giving assistance to new
teachers and substitutes, handling disci-
pline and working with clubs and activi-

AND MORE BOOKS
Miss Nancy Spain finished out an-
other year as Kecoughtan's head librar-
ian, keeping the library in order and
maintaining its educational atmosphere.
She was also responsible for selecting
new books with which to keep the
school's collection up-to-date. The
amount of paper work that accompa-
nied these tasks was so great that as-
sistants and student aides took care of
the routine duties essential to a library,
such as checking out books and replac-
