The Road Of Honor ww P £ he long and winding road of honor sets MOS apart from all other schools. It ' s our duty to uphold the ninety-year- old tradition of the Honor Code. Not everybody has an honor system that protects him from lying, cheating, and stealing and that is maintained by the students for the students. It takes the whole school — seventh graders, eighth graders, freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors, and faculty — to give meaning to the school ' s motto: Veritas Honorque (Truth and Honor). The Honor System means no locks on our lockers, free periods instead of study halls, unlocked classrooms, and leaving our books in the halls. But honor goes far beyond simply upholding the Honor System; it builds trust, understanding, and camaraderie among students and faculty alike. And it takes honor to complete the definition of the word " gentlemen " — which is what we all are from seventh grade orientation through senior graduation . . . and beyond. Proof that the Honor System works: students trust each other so much that they can leave their possessions — books, coats, whatever — in the halls without any fear of their disappearing. On a Friday just before assembly, Vere Jehl and Andy Cates greet each other and discuss what is happening over the weekend. The Honor System fosters an atmosphere of friendliness among not only students but also the faculty. ' A • ' -A

The Road of Excellence 4k « w ■ T he long and winding roads of dedication and honor lead to one destination: the road of excellence. 25% of the senior class has attained National Merit Semi-finalist status or received a Letter of Commendation. Graduates from MGS attend top colleges — including Dartmouth, Harvard, Stanford, and Princeton, — every year. Excellence is reflected in athletics when the track team wins the region, the tennis team sweeps the district (again), the varsity football team marches to the third round of the state playoffs, or the basketball team earns Coach Peters his 500th victory. The faculty is committed to excellence; forty-one out of forty-nine teachers hold masters or doctoral degrees and are always willing to spend more time with their students outside the classroom. But what makes MGS a cut above the rest is that the students and faculty strive together for a higher degree of excellence. This may entail spending an afternoon tutoring a student, spending an extra thirty minutes in the weight room, or donating many Saturdays to produce a quality yearbook. All this hard work pays off: there is no substitute for excellence. Eluding the hapless Roadrunner defender, Ray Hayles (30) turns on the afterburners as he powers his way to his record-breaking 243 yards in the Ridgeway game. As Jimmy Eggelston affixes his name and grade to the checkout card, a librarian, the always-friendly Mrs. Mary Huckaba, stands ready to turn the film reel over to him. Vj? I ' : • V Excellence 9
