to the playoffs, giving Houston and
Memorial something to cheer about.
Everywhere Memorial went, its
students left their mark of pride, their
brand. The band did so every time
they took the field. The Markettes
traveled to London and marched in
an Easter parade and at every choir,
drama or orchestra performance,
students gave it their all.
During the year, students showed
more than just pride and spirit, much
more. They showed achievements of
highest standards, on which they
were proud to leave their mark.
Memorial students will always pro-

A high school has a tremendous
amount of activities in which students
can be involved. School related ac-
tivities of every kind can be attended.
Football games are the prime social
events of the early year. Spirit

came every day after school as well.
Cheerleaders also spent their after
hours at school, preparing pep rallies.
Many students spent their free time
at the school as well.
Athletes practiced after school
every day and practices were also
held for musicals and other
Clubs offered students the oppor-
tunity to become even more involved
in the school. A student could truly

students were even said to be study-
Memorial students indulged in
every possible activity and there
were many from which to choose.
Spirit groups, clubs, athletics and
