The place- Montevallo High. Destination, graduation, 1989. There was an odor in the air; you know the smell: a freshly cleaned school, ammonia in the bathroom, and chalk dust in the classroom. The sounds filled your ears as everyone was catching up on the past summer’s gossip: the shopping sprees, the summer parties, the summer- time flings, who broke up with whom, and who was taken and who was not! Everyone was “decked out” in their most important outfit of the year. OPENING 1989 “Pour some sugar on me!” Crystal Minor lip-sincs the lead for the ma- jorettes at the lip-sinc contest.

With a thirteen and nine season, the competitive Bulldogs won and lost some very close games. “It was very exciting, and there was never a dull moment,” said Coach Brown. Highlights of the year included Senior Tyron Goodwin and Heath Galloway’s making All County. In addition, Heath made Central Alabama All Stars. Said Todd Davis, “Last year was a good learning year. It will be a better year in 89, and we'll have a lot more experience. Our goal for this year is to be the area champs ... and go to state.” Coach Brown agrees and adds, “I’m very opti- mistic; we have a chance to have a really good season and our first good shot at the playoffs.” MHS 1988 Bulldog infield Steve Burdett and Coty Jones back up catcher Ralph Vogel as an opponent slides Heath Galloway anticipates a line drive : into home Coty Jones relaxes between batters BASEBALL Sishoen “er ae nt pores ae arty : ans. ee fa ee a ; : caret — Bulldogs listen as Coach Brown discusses strategies Coach Brown tells his players about hopes for this game Jonathan Scarbarough, Tyron Goodwin, and Shane Baugh hope to rally their team to victory Steve Burdett displays his “strike out” form BASEBALL 1989 The pitching and catching members of the 1988 Bulldog team A rally in progress!

And another track season began. The coaches for the Montevallo Track Team were Mr. Blanton and Mr Glasscock. The track team competed in several track meets; among them were Pelham, Briarwood, and Troy State. Highlights of these meets were the girls’ team winning 3rd place at Pelham, and Lindett Peoples and Derrick Gilmore qualifying to go to state. Reflected Ky MacPherson on the 88 track season, “We practiced really hard, but it was not enough.” Alan Harris agreed, “We practiced, but since we were such a young track team, we did not do as well as we wanted to.” Mr. Blanton said, “We had a lot of potential last year, and there was a super performance from all the members. This year we hope to be a lot better. I believe if the students put forth enough effort, there’s no limit to how far we can go. I would like to see us win the State Championship.” The girl’s track team The boy’s track team Greg Cox jumps for the victory Giving it all he’s got, Derrick Gilmore hurls the disc.

If it’s musical and from MHS it has got to be good. The Symphonic band is proof of this. At the District Contest they earned all ones, and then they proceeded to State. There, once again, they earned all ones. Individual awards last year were as follows: All County: Jenifer Lawley, Jenny Lucas, Phillup Greer, Angie Gerber, Vickie Renfro, Caroline Harkins, Mar- cus Young, Angie Jones, Betsy Weese, and Michele Killingsworth.

Angie Jones remembers, “Although it was my first prom, and I didn’t know what to ex- pect, everything turned out better than I ever hoped it could be.” The hour grows late as Senior girls Heath Galloway, Jennifer Crocker, and Ms. Barbara Belisle applauds some out- dance the night away Kristie Pate take a break from the ex- standing examples of dancing PROM citement Jacqueline Saunders and her date, John Tanya Rovelstad and her escort exhibit 1989 Lilly, begin the evening with the Senior Bill Wade and Karen MacPherson ob- the true spirit of the prom Leadout serve as some of their friends enjoy dancing Graduation, the time the seniors have been waiting for. Class president, Steve Milstead, and Valedictorian, Glenda Lawley gave speeches to be remembered by all. As the seniors walked across the stage to accept their diploma, thoughts of their years at MHS went through their heads. The graduating seniors were greeted by family and friends at the reception afterwards. Ro aoe ake : Serhenge w = ' oi od. FORT L y.

Much controversy was concerned with where the Olympics should be held in the future. The U.S. did as well as expected. The conversation around this year’s Olympics focused on the use of steroids in the athletic field. Drug testing at the Olympics was manditory and some surprising facts came out. Many well-known athletes had been using steroids to improve their athletic ability. In addition, newcomers were using steroids. Hopefully at the next Olympics, wher- ever it is held, conversations about ster- oids and drug testing will be obsolete.

Out of the several candidates that ran, the Democratic choice was Michael Dukakis and the Republican choice was George Bush. Dukakis chose Lloyd Bentsen for a running mate while Bush chose Dan Quayle. The campaign trail was long and hard. The people of the U.S. along with the candidates were all to ready for Nov. 2. In the poll taken by the journalism class at MHS, the student body had a strong pull for the Bush Quayle ticket. The campaign this year will be remembered as one of “dirty politics”. One commentator said, “To err is human, but to blame it on someone is politics.” The next four years will disclose if the people’s choice was the right choice.

NOT TRUE! The players’ hard work and dedication actually be- gan mid August. The first two weeks of practice were mainly for conditioning the players, after the long summer vacation. The players had practice early in the morning and then late afternoon. They were called two-a-days and were used for getting the players back into shape. The second week was used for drilling and learning new plays. Coty Jones said, ““Two-a-days get you in better condition and ready for the game.” Coach Va- kakes agrees, “Summer practice helps the players to last the whole game.” Coach Pierson adds a little humor t day’s practice Kevin Turner allows his concentration to wander The bulldogs show their blocking ability during between plays summer practice Many of the players choose to socialize before hit- STUDENT ting the field Many people don’t realize how much work is involved in cheerleading. In the intense summer heat, the cheerleaders can be seen practicing on the grounds at MHS. In August the cheer- leaders spent most of their time rehearsing old routines and thinking of new ones to make the games and pep rallies more exciting. Suzanne Child relates, “Summer camp for learning new ma- terial.” “If we didn’t have practice, we wouldn’t be prepared for cheering season,” says Tina Garner. In addition, Suzanne says, “It was hard work, but we had a lot of fun. We felt good about the awards we received.” Jennifer Crocker displays that winning smile Rebecca Blake and Jennifer Dawson pose at the end of a cheer Valorie Herron and Michelle Holcomb demonstrate a cheer to the new Cheerleaders practice a stunt they plan to use at the up- squad members coming game Practice Makes Perfect “Get your horns in the middle, heals together, toes apart”... And so began another day of band practice. The band began their summer prac- tice on August first. Promptly at 8:00 students were poised and ready to be- gin another grueling season. During their four hour practice the band would practice marching in forma- tion, learn new songs, and review old songs. These practices for the band were not only for the half time shows but also for contests that the band participated in throughout the year Practicing four hours a day and five days a week did pay off, as our band earned all “1's” in competition. Mr. Weese agrees, “Summer band camp is a necessary part of preliminary marching band fundamentals.” A lull during practice gives the majorettes time to | Camisha Spruel practices a dance routine Band members practice marching in for- joke and catch up on the latest news to be used during the half time shows mation as drum major Steve Stone looks on STUDENT While in formation the : Jill Lawley displays the effort that play the Disney Melody makes the MHS band number one Alisa MacPherson and Angela Blackmon wait patiently for practice to The flag members stand in attention waiting for Mr. Weese to begin prac- Start tice Stand Up... “Rowdy, Rowdy that’s our style!

During the pep rallies throughout the year the cheer- leaders performed several dance routines, and the band played portions of the halftime show. In addition, the 1988 Bulldogs were introduced to the students. A special pep rally was held the week of Home- coming. During this rally the senior players presented the cheerleaders with mums for their patience and support.

The classes received points for hall decoration as well as for who had the most spirit at the pep rally. The 88-°89 spirit week winners w ere the juniors-with the seniors trailing close- ly. “I screamed my heart out so the junior class would win,” said Karen Brantley.

Taking A Break Break! Free at last. That glorious time which we hold so dear. After spending all morning slaving over books many students look forward to break. When break does come students are more than ready to put the books away and relax for a few minutes Some students choose to spend their break time catching up on homework or preparing for a test. Other students like to spend their spare time relaxing in the sun or socializing. Karen Payne would rather take a brief nap than report to class.

One teacher who has witnessed many senior classes is Ms. Belisle. She has several traits she likes to see in a senior, among these being self disci- pline and the ability to plan ahead. When asked what she thought this Senior Class would be doing in ten years she replied, “‘Ninety-nine percent of this Senior Class will accomplish any thing they set out to do.” Ms. Be- lisle believes that this Senior Class is unique because they Preparing the flag corps for the con- test, flag captain Mary Ann Kelley rates their drill CLASSES have a strong desire to excel. For example, Dawn Payne plans to go to college and major in nursing. Pam Alex- ander wants to go to Jack- sonville State, major in Criminal Justice, get mar- ried, have three children, and be rich! Wendy Boothe plans to take a year off, get a job and then go to col- lege. Tanya Fochtmann is going to college to study nursing and she also plans to get married.

Chris Chism is glad that there is only one more year of school while Shannon Hurt is excited about class rings ‘““Even though the courses are getting hard, | am com- fortable at school as a junior. I am able to establish myself as a person and able to build a good foundation for my fu- ture,” stated Damian Hines. One thing all juniors seem to have in common is the an- ticipation of their senior year. Michele Killingsworth re- lates, “Being a junior can be P, Jennie Hatcher “plays it cool” good because of the gradu- ation exams which make you really think hard about your future. For me it’s a year of I face new things Suddenly faced with a job, growing everyday you're a car and responsibilities. I enjoy my junior year because it sym- bolizes a step closer to indi- vidual freedom.” Jennifer Yeager states, “‘When you are a junior you're close to graduation, but you don’t have to make all the decisions a senior has to make, like what college to go to. A junior has to think about the future but it’s not immediate.” This is Shane Baugh’s modest im- eads a " wd the Thompson pep rally — The Junior class, displays the enthusiasm that won them the spirit competition pression of today’s fashionable woman CLASSES i; ls ¥ : ¥ ‘ .

The years of hard work, frustrations and determination are beginning to pay off. The fears and anxieties of being under- classmen are almost over. They are suddenly being re- placed with hopes and dreams of the future. The anticipations of becoming an adult, going to college, and deciding what to do with the Sophomore Melissa Bramer prac- tices her flag routine rest of their lives are also quickly becoming more im- portant to sophomores. This year many MHS sopho- mores had the chance to re- live their past. Mr. Latham, a 10th grade English teach- er, taught many of the soph- omores when they were 8th graders. He has witnessed the growth and changes of this group. “I was glad to have the chance to work with these bright students once again.” The heat of summer causes Josh Ni- chols to pause and catch his breath Enjoying the sunny spring day, sophomore Dana Gog- gins finishes her homework assignment Veda Towner shows her sophomore spirit on oppo- site-sex day CLASSES AN Laura Alexander Kimberly Barefield Lynn Benton Angelia Blackmon Melissa Boothe Michelle Bowden Robin Brabham Melissa Bramer Tiffany Brantley Jill Bridges David Brown Mark Bryant Stephanie Burns Carson Burtch Amber Caputo Loretta Carlee Rhonda Coker Patti Creel David Cummings John Cunningham Renee Damon Lisa Davenport Leanne DeHaven Joy Dover Shane Elliot Lance Ernest Cedric Fields Beth Fletcher Shannon Fletcher Karen Fulgham Clark Goggins Dana Goggins Morgan Griffin Jason Hale Richie Hamer Richard Harkins Chad Harmon Kacy Henderson Marie Hicks Jason Hughes Tina Hughes Jason Hutchinson Sophomores 1989 a A group of sophomores show their bulldog spirit at the pep , rally Sophomores enjoy lunch more when it’s outside John Cunningham takes a break Connie Farrington explains her from the hectic atmosphere of tardiness at a sock-hop the picnic Paul Johnson Roni Johnson Ginger Johnston Rebecca Kelly Dennis Latham Melanie Lawley Robyn Lawley Rodney LeFurgey Sherry Lucas Alisa MacPherson Michael McClain Janice Martin CLASSES 1989 56 A group of sophomores impa- tiently await the next egg to be tossed from the roof Dana Goggins, Ginger John- ston, and Loretta Carlee enjoy their ten minute break At the bonfire, Jeff Parks and David Cummings await their friends Stephanie ‘‘Poochie’’ Burns practices her jump shot during basketball practice Walter Mathews Crystal Minor Anthony Moore Donna Moore Glenn Moreland Kim Niven Jennifer Oglesby Jeff Parks Doug Pate Edward Patrick Lindet Peoples Ken Pickett Sophomores “1989 Kathy Polk Vicky Renfro Patrick Roberson Theresa Sailes Jonathon Scarbrough Mark Segers Michele Selman Alan Smith Terrell Smith Timmy Smith Derrick Stallworth oh Kayshel Stoudemire q a : Sophomore Kim Niven shows It’s “study” time in the library Sophomore Michael McClain Sophomore spirit is vivid at this off her shades at band camp for these sophomores checks out the tunes at the pic- pep rally nic CLASSES Shane Stoudemire Sage Taff Veda Towner Kevin Turner Kevin Walker Vealance Watts Jamie White Kathy Wynn David Lee Cummings appears : to be winning the arm wrestling battle with David Brown Donna Moore and Michele Sel- man talk on the phone during a class passes through these sopho- mores minds Thank goodness for sidewalks” Sophomores Melanie Lawley and Janice Martin look on as the teachers compete in the egg race Sophomore Kacy Henderson gets down to the beat of the lip- sinc contest Sophomores A “Fresh’’ Start Class of 92 The freshman may seem the hardest. They are meeting new people, chang- year ing schools, and once again having to begin from the bot- tom. Freshmen are easily dis- tinguished from other classes because they have a certain characteristic that makes them strive to be the best. Perhaps it is the way they dress, the way they act, or their ability to stand out ina crowd. They all have that “freshman glow.” When it comes to clothes, this year’s freshmen class are always dressed to a “T” Aaron Cox studiously observes Mr Weese as he conducts “Dirty Danc- ing” They tend to set the styles for the upperclassmen, and also for the students in the middle school. “I like to dress casu- al, " commented Lac ey Thomas. “‘Most of the time I enjoy wearing sweaters and mini-skirts.”” Maggie Carter replied, “The way I dress de- pends on my mood. If I’m in a lazy mood, I’m happy with my shorts and a t-shirt.

The award-winning MHS marching band achieved even greater heights during the 1988 season. This year they began their half-time show with a Disney medley. Then they performed the drum feature. This was followed by the “Dirty Dancing” medley, which featured soloist Jennifer Lawley on trumpet. The band exited to Lionel Richie’s“Still”, with a duet by Jennifer Lawley and Betsy Weese. There was also a solo on trombone by Shannon Hurt.

STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council began prepara- tion for the school year 1988-89 in early July when Secretary Suzanne Child and Representative Laura McCollough at- tended the USCA workshop at UNA in Florence, AL. In early September the Big Brother Big Sister program matched freshmen and seniors so the freshmen would have someone to show them around campus. The major project sponsored by the Student Council was Homecoming 1988. Their food drive at Christmas aided less-fortunate families in our area. The new officers elected in the Spring attended a leadership conference in Mo- bile, AL. We’ve Got What It Takes Who holds the pep rallies, makes the posters, throws the ever-famous souvenir footballs, supports the Bull- dogs through thick and thin,and keeps up the spirit at MHS? Why, our cheerleaders, of course! Like the football team, the cheerleaders begin their “season” in the summer. Although the everyday prac- tice from 8:00 to 12:00 began August 1, they attended Universal Cheerleader Association Camp at the Uni- versity of Montevallo, June 12-15, where they won the dance competition and the Master Key To Spirit Award. Valorie Herron, head cheerleader, won All Star Cheerleader, which gave her a chance to go to London to perform in the New Year’s Day Parade. The cheerleaders try hard to keep everyone’s spirit high by sponsoring events such as the Powder Puff football game and giving gifts to senior football players during Homecoming week as their “Secret Cheer- leaders”.

Calera The Dogs of Montevallo began their ’88 season against the county rival, Calera Eagles, under new head coach Jim Vakakes. With a young offensive field and an inexperienced backfield the Dogs managed only 100 yards rushing and 32 yards passing, as the Eagles stomped the Dogs of Montevallo 47-0. The top offensive player for the Dogs was junior Ashley Hudson, who strug- gled for 31 yards in only 5 carries while senior Mike Swords converted 2 fumbles and 21 total tackles. Vs. Pelham series of home games began with the dogs tak- ing on the arch-rival Pelham Panthers. The Dogs came out with an arsenal of stunts and blitzes, but the determined Panthers ran for a total of 240 yards and a 30-0 win. Highlights for Montevallo included 8 tackles by Mike Swords, 8 tackles for Derrick Gilmore, giving the MHS Dogs hope for the future.

The defense gave a good effort with Drew Floyd having 17 tackles, but it was not enough as the Wildcats coasted to an easy win 33-6. vs. Thompson The 6A Warriors strolled onto the field for a sure cake-walk on the Bull- dogs. The winless Bulldogs were ready for battle; but the Dogs, led by Albert Jones, were not tough enough for the Warriors as the MHS lost in a heart-breaker 19-7.

The defense held tough, but Jemison prevailed 27-6. vs. Briarwood The mighty Bulldogs traveled to Briarwood with a “do-or-die”’ atti- tude. This, plus Greg Cox’s carrying for two touchdowns, licked the Lions for the Bulldog’s first win 20-0. vs. John Carroll Mike Swords had a season high of 29 tackles, but it was not enough as the Cavaliers conquered 13-0.

The Bulldogs, coached by Terry Sullens, was one of Monte- vallo’s smallestbuttoughest teams in years. The Bulldog’s énly wins came against 3A Briarwood Lions and 4A Jemison Panthers. Even though the record doesn’t show much, thé dogs! opponents found it difficult to win easily.

P.RAID.LE. P.R.I.D.E. were the letters spelled out at the beginning of the season by the forceful Bulldogs. This was a Montevallo team that made enemies all across the county as well as the state. The Bulldogs played week after week against county rivals and area foes gaining respect from each opponent that they played. Although this was a young team, overall they worked hard and dedicated themselves to bring back the old tradition of “Montevallo Pride”’. This was also a year the team gained more respect for each other and themselves. Commented coach Bobby Pierson, “At the beginning of the season I really did not know what to expect. Everyday I watched each and every individual and spotted some special talents I did not know they possessed. Now that I understand the team more, I have got high sights on bringing back a State Championship trophy.” 1988-89 Varsity Basketball Team Junior Shane Baugh attempts for three! MHS Pride!

Montevallo was picked to finish first in its area by presea- son polls and coaches. The Bulldogs began the season with a 4 and 0 record, under head coach Bobby Pierson, before losing their first game at home against the county foe Thompson Warriors. It was a long, hard, but rewarding season as the Bulldogs prevailed throughout the state. They exhibited great sportsmanship. Sophomore guard Derick Stallworth related, ‘This was my first year of playing varsity bas- ketball, and as a sophomore I learned disci- pline. I’ve learned to cope with difficult prob- lems at a time when things didn’t look their best. Being a Montevallo basketball player means not only being a great player but also having a lot of class.” “The future for the Montevallo Bulldogs will be great. We are planning to goall the way to state and win,” stated Aaron Fulgham.

Returning only one starter from last year’s 18-4 season, this season was expected to be a rebuilding year for the young players.

According to junior Becky Clark, the team’s record didn’t reflect their abilities. She feels the team will be much better next year. “We were a young team, there were many freshmen. I feel this was a building year for us. It was a difficult year for all of us. We wanted to match the example the guys set for us and bring back a win for the school. The support of the teachers and students played an impor- tant role in how we felt about ourselves,” said Becky Clark. Commented the girls’ new coach, Mr. Sullens, “I appreciated all the support that was given to our team this year.” Laura McCollough and Shawn Fulgham are trapping an opponent Roberta Rutledge wins tip-off Lady Dogs during a defensive position.

Words are not the facility, Yet they are as close as we come. For this reason, I wish to Submit to paper a life. Not accomplishments, failures, or material aspects ... But the true essence of a life. Dearer to me than my own, My sister Jodie Turner. First, the Daughter. Second, the sister. And always and forever the friend. Exuberant and overflowing with joy She not only sought pleasure out of life for herself, But also those around her. More exceptional however was that she Not only sought these things She achieved them. Like a solitary beam somehow fighting its way through the clouds, She fought to make us happy And to make us have a good time To brighten up even our worst d ays And more often than not she succeeded. When she left us in Georgia to come to Alabama We were not sure how she would handle the adjustment, And neither was she. I wish to thank the residents of Montevallo For teaching her the real meaning Of being a friend. In Memory O Jodie Turner I can honestly say that she made a home here She had here her first true love Something for which my gratitude is undefineable. The comfort of knowing that she received All the love, understanding, and friendship here That anyone could ask for Helps me to accept her fate. We must always remember one particular aspect of Jodie You might call it her trademark Her laugh. A sound not of mere enjoyment, but true happiness That had an infectious quality that would Encompass all those around her. She was giving more of herself Than she shall ever know. We discussed the topic of death on several occasions And I feel fairly safe in relay- ing to you her feelings: “I know they will cry and be sad, But please tell them not to dwell on it I want to be remembered in memories that Make people laugh and be happy Because wherever we go when we do die I will surely be better off than those left on Earth.” Therefore, as her sister, I ask you to overcome Your grief and remember her as she wished When she appears in your mind, Make it a memory that lives with The spirit of her laugh, One that warms you and leaves You content and happy with life. And to Jodie I know that you always enjoyed my poems So I felt this was the most appropriate Way to express myself on this occasion. I hope you like it, We will always love you, Just as you did us. Good-bye and we will miss you. And always remember Only the good die young.

Montevallo scores for three! This often was heard at the J- V games this past season. The players with all their sk ill and ability meant that they were able to relentlessly bombard their opponents’ goals and score many points. The J-V start- ers also added points to the scoreboard by hitting three-point shots. In addition, the Bulldogs amazed their opponents by their superior skills at shooting free throws. Beginning stats indicated the players who showed real potential at the start of the season were; Doug Pate, Lance Earnest, Edward Patrick, Albert Jones, and Kacy Hender- son. With all the playing ability on the court, the team was able to win many exciting games.

The squad was the first of its kind at Montevallo High School. The girls attended a week-long clinic prior to try-outs. At the clinic the hopefuls learned three jumps, a dance routine and three cheers. “I was glad the tryouts were not open to the public, because I would have been more ner- vous,” recalled Paula Stano. Mollis Cottingham feels the B-team cheerleaders are an asset to the games. “I like to get out there to help our teams, because it gives the players more spirit and incentive to do well.” she stated. The new addition to MHS is made up of freshmen Rachel McKinney, head, Lacey Thomas, Paula Stano, Jennifer McKinnon, Janet Parker, Jennifer McKinnon and Rebecca Mollis Cottingham and sophomore Kelly lead the crowd in a cheer to Rebecca Kelly support the B-team Bulldogs a 4 lll, | J-V During a time-out Paula Stano cheers the B-team on to victory Head Cheerleader Rachel McKinney leads the squad in a 1989 chant at halftime UMMM), MMMMW]]W@]@]@q@]qaxis MdMa@dMH@AM|M|M@|MM V“_ MMM||!'a Pam Alexander Business Club 3; Spotlight Staff 3,4; Home Ec. 1,2; Family Living 3; Office Aide 4 Mike Allen FFA 1,2,3,4; Football 2,4; Baseball 2; Golf 2 Keith Bearden Wendy Boothe Drama Club 3,4; Science Club 3,4; Explorer’s Post 3,4; National Honor Society 3,4; Office Aide 2,3; Spotlight 3,4 Kristi Brasher — FHA 1,2; Pep Squad 1; Photography Club 3; Business Club 3 Beth Brindley Marching Band 1,2,3,4 section leader 4; Symphonic Band 3,4; Spanish Club 1,2,3; Science Club 3,4 secretary 3; Math Team 1; National Honor Society 3,4; Girl's State Representative 3; All-County Band 2; Solo Ensemble 3; Tutoring Middle School Students 3; UAB Prep Engineering Program Lee Brown — Transfer Honors, Student Council 1,3,4; Football 1,2,3,4; Baseball 2 Angie Bunn Business Club 3 Steven Burdett — Counselor’s Aide 4; Teacher's Aide 4; Baseball Club 4; Weightlifting 1,2; Spotlight 3,4 Co-editor Sports 4; Football 1,2; Baseball 1,2,3,4; FFA 1,2,3,4 secretary 3, Reporter 2; Spotlight Pho- tographer 4 John Burke — Marching Band 1,2,3,4 section leader 4; Symphonic Band 1,2,3,4 Ist chair 4; FFA 1,2,3,4 President 4; West Central District Sentinel 4; History Club 4 president 4; Student Council 2,3 David Calvert — Football 2,3,4.
