CrflTlllM ofc6M.- «_ Mr. and Miss MJHS Michele Thomas Mike Myers Carla Counts 10 Outstanding Leaders The students chosen for the Mr. and Miss MJHS title receive one of the highest honors a student can achieve while in high school. The faculty has the responsibility of choosing Mr. and Miss Mortimer Jordan High School from a ballot of nominees. These students must have the qualities of good character, leadership, scholarship, service and enthusiasm for their school. The young man who was best qualified for Mr. MJHS was Mike Myers. Two young ladies received the highest votes for Miss MJHS. They are Michele Thomas and Carla Counts. Michele Thomas 4 l ' pV Mike Myers Carla Counts 11 The selection of Boys ' State Representatives is based on school service. Each year a faculty committee chooses someone to represent Mortimer Jordan High School in a statewide program. Boys ' State is designed to educate high school students in the privileges and responsibilities of being an American citizen. The representatives actually participate in the functioning of the Government. The representatives this year went to Samford. Those representatives are Steve Hooper, Keith Miller, and Greg Melvin. 12 f Carla Counts YOUTH CONGRESS Dana Sharit Brian Wadsworth The Youth Congress is to acquaint students with the legislative processes. 13 D A R R e P r e s e n t a t 1 V e Angela Moman It is a very high honor for a senior to be chosen as DAR Representative. Due to her service to the school, and her great per- sonality Angela was chosen for this award by her fellow classmates to be the rep- resentative of the Daughters of the Amer- ican Revolution. Angela is very active in school. She is the president of her homeroom, Most Courteous in the Who ' s Who, and also was the 1987-88 Homecoming Queen. Along with area students, Angela, as the DAR Representative will compete for col- lege scholarships based upon personal in- formation regarding school, home and church. School plans are also considered for selection. An essay must also be written for the awarding of the scholarship. It is entitled " Our American Heritage and My Respon- sibility to It. " 14 Dana Sharit Voted on by her fellow students to receive this award Dana shows the qualities of lead- ership, dependability, scholarship, and ser- vice. Her academic achievements and extra- curricular activit ies add to the qualities for this award. Dana enjoys cheerleading and she is head of the Varsity Squad. Her high academic scores placed her as a member of the Honor Society. She was also chosen Most Athletic in the senior Who ' s Who. The Optimist Club Representative also competes with other seniors for scholar- ships. The selection is based upon academic achievements. 40 o t 1 m 1 s t C 1 u b jo L. - ■vv 15 Leading The Way To Success Academic excellence is evident at Mortimer Jordan through the annual selection of the Valedictorian and Salutatorian of the Senior class. These selections are made on the basis of grade point average from grades 9-12. The Valedictorian is chosen as the student who has made a 4.0 grade point average of all A ' s during this period of time. The Salutatorian is chosen as the student who has made below 4.0 but ranks the highest of all the others. In the 1988 graduating class, Baron Worthington was selected as the Valedictorian. Baron actually had a 4.19 average because of his extra quality points he gained from Honors English. The Salutatorian is Mike Myers with a 3.86 average. These students represent the highest evidences of scholastic success at MJ. These students should be commended for their exemplary behavior in " Leading the way to success.

It marks the end of many years of study and opens a whole new chapter in a person ' s life. The future for a new graduate is bright but scary. There are many decisions to be made: whether to further education by attending college, where to go, where to live, and most important where the money will come from For the seniors at M.J. as well as all graduating seniors it is a BIG step. To leave friends and go to a strange place is not a comforting thought, but with time everything will fall into place. It will be exciting and challenging to go out everyday and not know what to expect. The responsibility will be very demanding, and it will cause many to mature rapidly. Though growing up will bring about many changes the class of ' 88 will never forget the cherished memories they share. The memories of high school years will always be kept close to the heart. All the good times and friends that were made will never be forgotten. Julie Turner 74 Powers, Pressures, and Individuality By: Michele Thomas High school students in today ' s society face more peer pressure than teenagers in the past. The pressures have always been there, but the amount and types of pressure have increased over the years. The types of pressures change, but the problem remains the same. Teenagers more than any other group need to be accepted by their peers. They want to be like everybody else. However, teenagers should be told and encouraged to be their own person. If they have morals and beliefs they were brought up with, they should continue to stand up for as well as believe in them even though their parents ' guiding hand may not be as dominant in their lives at that age. Being a teenager is a challenge in itself. Teenagers are faced with new and exciting op- portunities of life. They have new responsibilities placed upon them and they begin to see that there ' s more out there in the world than just their small town. They meet new people and discover new things and activities. Almost all teenagers are offered some type of drug or alcohol. The availability of drugs and alcohol to teenagers is almost astounding. Drugs can be bought from people they know or from total strangers on the streets. Alcohol can be bought at various businesses who either ignore state policies or just don ' t check for an l.D. If a teenager looks twenty-one, he or she could probably purchase alcoholic beverages — no questions asked. Even though teenagers are offered these things they should be encouraged by teachers, parents and especially by their friends to stand up for what they believe in and especially to be an individual, not just one of the crowd. A positive note to this story is that the drug and alcohol problem at our high school is not as intense as it is at other schools in the Birmingham area. Maybe it ' s because of the small town atmosphere and caring parents of our community. 75 By: Kelly Rogers and Tara Campbell Julia Piera is from Madrid, Spain. She is very interested in Football games, cheerleaders, and pep rallies because in Spain they have no extra-curricular activities for students. At her school in Spain they had two hours for lunch and a nap, so naturally her biggest adjustment here was to eat lunch in twenty minutes. Her favorite American food is cinnamon rolls! Julia ' s fondest memory thus far is her trip to Florida over Thanksgiving holidays. She enjoyed spending time on the beach and eating a big Thanksgiving dinner. Julia was amazed at the time Americans spend in their cars, especially eating and drinking. In Spain no one eats in their car. She calls it a " second home. " She has enjoyed staying in Alabama, and hopes to visit New York, Washington, D.C. and the beach. Mirabel Manalang is from Manila, Philippines, and her native language is Tagalog. In her school, she worked on the school paper and as a secretary of her class. She was also a member of the choir and Science Club. She found American high schools to be very different. In Manila, she attended a private Catholic School which was directed by nuns. They were required to wear uniforms and attend classes from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. Upon coming to America, Mirabel found it difficult to adjust to living in the country. She was used to seeing houses close together with no yards and seeing lots of traffic. Mirabel enjoys school here because classes are not restricted to those of the same age. The American custom she found most interesting was Thanksgiving. When Mirabel returns to the Philippines, she would like to take with her a southern accent. Timia Marques is from Sao Paulo, Brazil, and she speaks Portuguese. In her home school, she was an active member of the theater and swim team. Her favorite American food is cheese cake, and she loves American music. She found it very unusual for boys to carry combs in their back pockets here in America. Timia comes from a big city, and on weekends teenagers like to go dancing. She would like to travel more in the United States and work as a doctor in a hospital. At her home school, the teachers change rooms, and there are no football games or cheerleaders. Timia was impressed with the way Americans give personal compliments to each other. In Brazil, people greet one another with a kiss, and Timia would like to pass this custom on to you. 7Uutccf - Seiieote t 0% " Hot A Look At Tabloids Tabloids. Full of garbage. Why do people read them? Better yet, why do people write them? Maybe it ' s for money. Maybe it ' s for laughs. Who knows? But they are out there with their crazy headlines and insane stories. Let ' s look at a few: Lost and Lonely Lost and lonely, hunter, T. W. Grooms miraculously survived two frigid weeks in the wilderness of Sardis. He managed to survive on the raw rabbit and squirrel he shot. He had only been able to start two small fires the whole time he was lost. The fires didn ' t do much good, though, since it rained everyday. Finally, two hikers, Michelle Thomas and her boyfriend, discovered T.W. and brought him two miles back to his home in Morris. Foot-Long Cockroaches Students at a Mortimer Jordan High School football game were suddenly frightened by giant cockroaches. The cockroaches had escaped a nearby laboratory where experiments had been per- formed on them. The cockroaches were actually 12 inches long. Christy Allison, a cheerleader for MJ, claims that the cockroaches took the ball from the opponents and, while running over the team, scored an amazing touchdown. Tomie Ann Willis, a French Horn player for the MJ band, stated that she would like to catch a few and send them to Troy State so they can, as she says, " Whup Troy! " Student Gets Mouthful Jason Anderson, a student at MJ, was very offended when he thought his Geometry teacher was going to give him a B in that class. Jason is a straight A student and didn ' t think he deserved a B, so when his teacher was explaining his grade to him, he bit off her finger. Jason may be charged with assault and battery. Turns out, though, that Jason has his A as usual anyway. Although, he still thinks the bite was worth it. Moon Property Bargain Real estate agent, John Franks, is selling 5-acre lots on the moon for $24.95 a piece. He says that there aren ' t many modern con- veniences and the nearest shopping mall is 238,000 miles away, but the view and the price more than compensate. So far John has sold deeds to more than 40 acres of moon property through his Lunar Land Company. Alias: David Lee Roth Julie Turner, a student at MJ claims that she is actually David Lee Roth, " I was tired of being drug through a ' life in the fast lane ' , " says Julie. She finally decided to hide out at MJ as a crazy blonde on the Annual staff. Julie says she is happy there and she loves her new life. Teacher Disappears On Wednesday, December 2, Ms. Lindanne Phillips, a teacher at MJ disappeared. She was last seen in a nearby jewelry store looking at a " tennis bracelet " she had idolized for months. The jewelry store closed early because of a weather report of snow and ice that day. The weather report was correct. The next day it snowed and the roads were icy. The jewelry store, therefore, was closed. After three days of snow and ice, no one had seen nor heard of Mrs. P. again. Two of her students, Tara Campbell and Kelly Rogers, began to get worried after she missed her ap- pointment with them on Dec. 5. So after the weather cleared up, they decided to investigate. Kelly and Tara went back to the jewelry store and there was Ms. P., trapped inside. When the announcement had been made that the store would be closing, she had apparently been in the bathroom and didn ' t hear it. Then when she tried to get out,the door was jammed. When she finally got out of the bathroom, the place was empty and the doors locked. She was trapped. Today, all ' s well with Ms. P. and she finally got the " tennis bracelet " she had always wanted. Who knows why people read tabloids, or why some write them. All 1 know is that with all that absurdity, you may luck up and find some humor, once in a while. 78 WHAT ' S THE PURPOSE? Since the beginning of time, students have asked the same questions about going to school. So, in an effort to enlighten you, the student, we here at the staff have picked out some of those most common questions to answer simply, yet accurately. Question: Why do we go to school in the first place? Question: Why do we have to take semester exams? Question: Why is the lunchroom food so yucky? Question: Why do we have to take P.E.? Answer: Simple. It ' s part of a huge Communist plot. The Russians plan to desensitize the leaders of tomorrow by forcing them to go through the mind-numbing grammar school-high school experience. The television show " Sesame Street " is also part of this plot. Answer: The board of education has a deal with several local hospitals and they get extra money if a student passes out from stress. Answer: Don ' t hold it against the lunchroom workers if you don ' t like the food. They have to come to school at 3:00 A.M. to hunt and kill whatever they ' re going to fix for lunch. It just so happens that there are a lot of pizzas and french fries roaming around in the woods near the school at 3:00 A.M. Answer: Of course, many enjoy taking P.E., but the basic reason we take it remains the same: the school needs cheap labor to clean and jisum the gym. If it wasn ' t for students, the school would have to pay people to do that. Question: Why would anyone want to be a teacher, anyway? Answer: Scientific studies have shown that people who are teachers and people who want to be teachers have a tiny part of their brain missing. And it is this part of the brain that gives a person desire to make a lot of money at his job. 79 cuuC Christmas is always an exciting season but this year it was filled with even more excitement for Mortimer Jordan ' s Varsity Cheerleaders. For the first time in the history of Mortimer Jordan the cheerleaders were to compete in the National Cheerleading Competition sponsored by the National Cheerleaders Association. The competition was to be held in Dallas, Texas December 26 thru December 18. The Cheerleaders began preparing in October. The girls worked hard in their fund raising efforts. They bombarded the community with doughnuts, and donation tickets on a fishing rod and reel. Car washes and yard sales were held, too. All proceeds were going toward this important trip. And thanks to the loyal supporters — the faculty, students and the M.J. community — you made a dream come true. At the stroke of midnight on December 25th eleven Mortimer Jordan Varsity Cheerleaders, Mr. and Mrs. Hillis, and thirteen parents and relatives boarded a chartered bus headed for the " BIG D. " The long, twelve hour journey was filled with laughter, chatter, games and a little sleep. The group arrived at their hotel, the Dallas Sheraton, around noon Saturday, December 26th which was the beginning of three busy but fun-filled days. The days began early to allow time for practice, competition, and some site-seeing. One evening the excitement of this big city beckoned these explorers to dine at the renown Palm Restaurant where a plate of hot potato chips cost $3.50. The day of competition finally arrived. This was a day that many hours of planning and preparation went into for this year ' s event. The judges saw 344 squads from across the United States all vying for National titles in five categories. The Dallas Convention Center Arena was filled with cheerleaders, spectators, judges, and a lot of tension. Finally at 11:00 a.m. the moment everyone had been waiting on finally arrived. Each girl put her all into the routine knowing that the squad had the honor of being one of three groups representing Jefferson County but most of all they were representing Mortimer Jordan High School. What a great honor! You made a dream become reality. 80 9Insic + 9Iagie= MICKEY By: Tomie Ann Willis Last spring the Mortimer Jordan Jammin ' Blue Devil Band was chosen by a taped audition to participate in Walt Disney World ' s " Magic Music Days " band competition held in Orlando, Florida. The band enjoyed four sensational days at Walt Disney World with unlimited access to the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT Center. At Walt Disney World the band participated in two marching com- petitions, the freestyle competition and the parade competition. At EPCOT Center the band presented its 1986 field show entitled " Beach Party " complete with sharks, surfboards, and beachballs. And the band marched down Main Street, U.S.A. in the traditional Magic Kingdom Parade. All of the hard work that was put into the competition paid off when the Jammin ' Blue Devil Band received a second place Silver Trophy at the awards ceremony. The band was not only involved in competition during its stay, but the members also enjoyed the rides, especially Space Mountain, the light shows and fireworks, and of course Mickey Mouse. (With whom the band ' s picture was made.) When they loaded the Greyhound buses for the L-O-N- G ride home, it was certain that the 1986-87 Jammin ' Blue Devil Band ' s MAGIC MUSICAL memories would linger for quite a long while. 81 : V X " 11 Left to Right: Secretary: Julie Morris, Parliamentarian: Regina Broadwater, Reporter: Angela Underwood, Vice-President: Sherri Nelson, Presiden) Carla Counts, Treasurer: Regina Cater, Secretary: Mandy Maze, Kelly Long. s E N I O R S 84 1st: Christy Lynn, Angela Underwood, LeighAnne Guthrie, Kristy Campbell, Kandi Dobbs, Regina Cater, Kristy McCarley, Kim Trucks, Angel; Moman, 2nd: Angle Womack, Beverly Findley, Julie Morris, Wendy Kimbrell, Gale Hargett, Tiffany McGowan, Missy Kennedy, Dawn Self, Donn; Goodwin, Regina Broadwater 3rd: Carla Counts, Mandy Maze, Stacie McCombs, Cherry Murphy, Sherri Nelson 4th: Frankie Bartlett, T W Grooms, Billy Martin, Ricky Graben, Joe Curry, Steve Hooper THE F.B.L.A. t: Tammy Helm, Meredith Crane, Joy Wilson, Carolyn Haupt, Sonya Lynn, Amy Bibb, Amy Stacks, Angle Weems, Mon ica Sanders 2nd: Charlotte aves, Vicki Sutton, Stacie Hill, Cherie Morton, Karen Nail, Kim Reno, Tina Stubbs, Jennifer Nail, Kelli Long, Bobbin Hogeland 3rd: Kendra own, Russell Fulmer, Jason Leipert, Michael Davis, Scott Smith :: Jane Ledbctter, Trina Lucas, Julie Blackmon, Lisa Fields, Sharon Murphy, Christy Allison, Tara Davis.

This year the band carried the crowds back into the " Spirit of the 50 ' s. " The Band began their show with " Rock Around the Clock, " " Heartbreak Hotel, " and " At the Hop. " The band took the shape of a guitar and imitated Chuck Berry as the percussion section was featured in the drumbreak, " Johnny B. Goode. " The band kept on rockin ' through " Kansas City " and " Love Me Tender. " The spotlight fell on the majorettes as they hoola-hooped in " Shake, Rattle and Roll " and the crowds came to their feet as the majorettes and colorguard spread their wi ngs, as the band exited to " Earth Angel. " Through the 1987 field season the band attended all football games as well as two competitions. On October 10, the band attended the Sand Mountain In- vitational where they received straight superior rating. On October 17, the band traveled to Ranburne to compete in a Marching Festival.

The night ' s entertainment of music and videos was provided by Bobby T. The highlight of the evening was a special impromptu performance of lip-syncing by band members. Elvis, the Jordanaires, and Molly and the Heart- breakers performed such hits as " Jailhouse Rock, " " Duke of Earl, " and " Hey Baby. " It was a perfect night to end yet another successful marching season. On October 22, 1987, thirty-five lovely young ladies became part of The Odyssey as they participated in the Miss Torch Pageant sponsored by the TORCH Staff. In this pageant, they left the rolling hills of Alabama to the Acropolis of Greece where education and beauty flourished for all the world to enjoy. After being interviewed by the judges the previous evening, the con- testants strutted their stuff in evening wear and then in sports- wear. After careful deliberation, the judges chose ten finalists who then came forward and told of their plans for after grad- uation. From this showing, the judges then chose three alternates and a winner, Miss Torch 1988. 126 The 1988 TORCH Staff took much pride in presenting " The Odyssey. " Many long hours were put into organizing, planning and decorating for the Pageant. Staff members are pict. L-R: Christy Allison, Kelly Rogers, T. W.

Senior officers shared their thoughts and emotions. The seniors finished it up with an emotional singing of the Alma Mater. Later in the day, a spirited Homecoming pep rally was held. The Senior Class won the Spirit Stick. There were performances by the Cheerleaders and the Jammin ' Blue Devil Band. A drawing was held by the Art Club and Student Council in which Julie Moore was awarded twenty-five dollars. That " special homecoming spirit " carried over into Friday evening. Helium balloons sold by the Art Club and Student Council were released as the M.J. Blue Devils crashed through the run-through sign. An unforgettable homecoming night was underway. At halftime, Angela Moman was crowned Homecoming queen with Kim Yeager, Tara Davis and Angela Logan chosen to complete her court. After the victory filled homecoming game, the Homecoming Dance with the theme " We ' ve Got The Look " was held in the old gym. Students were able to dance their socks off to both new and old hits. They ranged from Chubby Checker ' s " The Twist " to Whitesnake ' s " Here I Go Again. " The annual Alumni dessert buffet was held in the lunchroom. This spirit-filled homecoming provided some very special memories for everyone who loves M.J. and its traditions. PICTURES TOP TO BOTTOM: Jeff Quick becomes elevated at the dance.

The players and coaches started right after the 1986 season, working on plays, working out with weights, running to get in shape and most of this was done during the summer. The first game was played at Pleasant Grove. The Spartans beat the Blue Devils last year in a last minute field goal. But this year the Devils shut Pleasant Grove out 14-0. It was the first opening season ga me won by MJ in 13 years. Since then the players, coaches, and the fans knew this year would be A YEAR TO REMEMBER.

Coach Collie shows the team what to do. A WINNING SEASON! As the 1987-88 basketball season started, everyone knew that the basketball team would have a winning record. After losing only two seniors last year, the team had a lot of experienced players returning. And with the second year head coach, Phillip Collie, the Devils would not have anything to worry about. Coach Collie, along with Coach Randy Hays, started the basketball season near the end of last year. They both worked up a " spring training " session for about a week. Then during the summer the players had to work out and shoot some baskets. When school started the players started running to get in shape. And then, before they knew it, it came time to really work hard at practice and get serious. The Devils, coming off a 10-13 record last year, went on to win the Mortimer Jordan Invitational Tournament, beating Oak Grove, West Jefferson, and Fultondale. 156 iJi v K. .
