Keeping It Together
Having the same administration this year allowed the
school to run efficiently and smoothly.
Mr. Malmgren carried out the duties of the principal, such
as providing leadership, managing the school according to
sound business principles, and numerous other jobs.
Some of the tasks Dr. Wilson, the assistant principal, was
responsible for were: attendance supervision, athletic director
and disciplinarian. He was in charge of the building when Mr.
Malmgren was not here, and taught an algebra class.
Ann Marie Barry was the secretary to the principal, took
care of bookkeeping, and attended to other school business.
Mrs. Smith, school clerk, performed receptionist duties,
recorded attendance, and was secretary to the counselor.
The responsibilities of the buildings' counselor, Mr. Smith.
were those of individual inventory, giving college and
occupational information, counseling and consulting.
There were four new faces in the halls and
classrooms of NHS this year, as Dirk McGuire, Nancy
White, Malcolm Orton, and Amy Wheatley joined the
Aside from teaching, some faculty members
dedicated themselves to helping students with a variety
of activities ranging from cake auctions to working in
the student store.
Seven of them coached sports and helped the young
athletes improve their skills. Other faculty members took
money at events, sponsored classes, and activities, and
everything was kept very organized within the school.
Thanks to all the faculty members for their help and

You look back through the years
Discovering new beginnings
And old fears.
Each time you look back,
From beginning to end.
There was nothing you lacked

A Fresh Beginning
The class of i984 soon became involved in many high
school activities. With much enthusiasm they stepped out of
their shells and showed their spirit and determination in
The "84's" were active in sports and there were three
cheerleaders from the Freshmen class that helped build
enthusiasm in the crowds.
With advisors Don Smith and Amy Wheatley, the class
did a great job in sponsoring fundraisers and began raising
money they will need for the future years at NHS.
The year proved to be an experience for the Freshmen
and a fresh beginning that everyone seemed to enjoy.

The Sophomores were very spirited and active throughout the year.
One couldn't help but notice them.
Members of the class of l983 soon became involved in many school
activities. They participated in things such as a "Kiss me I'm Irish"
contest, athletic and drama events, Student Council, and sponsoring the
Ice Cream Social.
Together they set their goals, some were reached. some were not.
They worked hard and learned together, laughed, cried, and cheered
together. They tried, failed and succeeded.
Although Miss Eichler and Mrs. Miller, class sponsors, encouraged
the class to accomplish their goals, the ambition and teamwork of the
class set forth a positive attitude toward getting things done the right
Even though there may not be a sophomore eager to relive the
years, there are those who will never forget the impact the year had on
their total outlook of life.

The class of l982, enthusiastic as always, stepped forward to
achieve their goals.
Cake auctions, a copper-silver war, a pancake breakfast, selling
mini football players and placemats were just a few of the
fundraisers this spirited class did to raise money for the I98I Prom.
"Under the Blue Lagoon" was this year's theme for Prom, and
with music and dancing, everyone enjoyed this beautiful event.
The junior class participated in sports, drama, Student Council,
and other activities. The sponsors, Dorothy Powhida and Jim
Pedersen, with the class officers helped organize activities. kept
everything moving and madethis a good year for the junior class.

The general feeling among the seventh graders
was, "lt's a heck of a lot better than the sixth
grade." When asked how they felt about the seventh
grade compared to the sixth grade, the responses
"lt's better because the classes aren't as long,
and we learn more," said Peter Ludwick, about M.L.
Tony Mozal stated, "ln the sixth grade you were the
big shots, now we're the littlest and the youngest."
"The teachers give you a lot more work, and you're
not ready for it, but they teach you more," replied
Cindy Platt and Linda Fuller. Students were also glad
that there was a wider choice of classes.
Starting the year at a new school proved to be
an exciting and interesting experience for most of
the seventh graders. They look forward to returning

The class of '85 enjoyed a stimulating year
at Nederland Jr.-Sr. High. The beginning of the
year was spent enjoying their new-found
superiority as top notch -in the Middle Level.
The eighth grade was full of pep, spirit,
and enthusiasm. Getting involved in school
activities and going out for Middle Level sports
were just some of the ways they expressed
their dedication. They could also be seen
cheering their hearts out at the high school
Under the guidance of class sponsors, Ms.
Cornfield and Mr. Orton, the eighth graders
remained active throughout the year. They
helped sponsor various socials and dances and
held numerous fundraisers.
With their usual vim and vigor the class of

Dirt Skiin ?
Skiing through nice powder wasn't the case
this year for the ski team. Because of the lack of
snow, conditions were really marginal at many ski
areas. The lack of snow at the cross country track
at Eldora prevented the cross country skiers from
really getting in good practices. However, that is
where the team scored most of its points.
The Alpine team members improved in their
individual skills. Although not all of them placed
highly in meets, most of them felt good about the
season. "I thought that this season was the best
ever. l really grew to love the coaches and team
members, and will miss it when I leave," said
Stevie Keene. Dave Mans and Steve Farentinos
placed 4th and Sth consecutively in the skimeister,
which is the combined points for all events at the
State Ski Meet in Leadville. Shelly Bluhm was also
honored by earning a place on the girls' All-State
Giant Slalom team.

The I9808I PANTHER staff took pride in the impact of their
publication. Goals for improvement in Editorials and Photo Features
included topics which were timely, were of student interest, and
involved current school issues.
First semester the PANTHER staff consisted of Journalism I
and Il students. The first two issues of the newsmagazine were
published with the efforts of both classes, led by Editor-in-chief
Stevie Keene, Page and Layout editor Kerri Ammentorp, and
Business manager Johnna Turner. The publication maintained
standards of high quality and excellence, which were carried
throughout the year as each staff member obtained independence
Second semester seven people took on the task of producing
two more issues, they were: Johnna Turner, Editor-in-chief and
photographers Kim Nelson, News editor, Mike Garrison, Photo
editor, and reportert Courtney Schaller, Feature editor, Maureen
Walsh, Business manager, and Katherine Eichler, PANTHER staff

Though Student Council started off on the right foot
it was an up and down year for student government.
Officers Paul Cornell, President, Kirk Lally, Vice
President, Cherri Boyle, Secretary, and DJ DiJulio,
Treasurer, did their best to take care of business and
keep everything going smoothly. Cherri and DJ left the
group at semester, and new officers were elected to fill
their positions. Mandy Fraser took on the Secretary's
duties and Johnna Turner kept the books.
There were many activities through the year by
council. Homecoming week included junior olympics, a
pep rally, cowboy day, and blue and gold day. A
traditional Homecoming dance capped the week. The
student body and faculty supported the pop machine and
student store, and many teachers, parents and students
heavily supported the magazine and record sales during
the winter months. Council took charge of the events
board and started several ongoing projects such as the
league standing board in the cafeteria.

Talent abounds at Nederland High School. One of
the ways this talent emerged was through the drama
department. The students presented a major
performance each semester.
Fall brought the presentation of "Up the Down
Staircase." The story takes place in New York City,
where a young teacher begins her teaching career in
a rather tough school. She finds the work hard to
cope with because of the insensitivity of the faculty
and the students, however, she chooses to continue
teaching there and eventually has a powerful impact
on her students.
The spring musical, "Good News," was a comedy
set in the l92Os. Part of the plot consisted of the
star of the Tait College football team, Tom Marlow, U
who was failing Astronomy. This meant that he
couldn't play in the big game against rival Colton.
The story is complicated by marriage proposals and
superstition, and centers around the outcome of
Tom's makeup test and the big game of the season.
The acting class gave a well received twenty
minute cutting of the famous musical, "The Wizard
of Oz." They also presented a one act play called,
"The Staring Match," about a small community
experiencing a period of drought. During their
prayers for water, two "angels" appeared. A staring
match was held to determine which was the angel C
and which one was a courier of the devil, and which .
one would help them find water.
Dramatics at N.H.S. offered an excellent learning
experience and has become a fast growing club.

The countdown progressed and so did the anxieties of
the senior class of I98I. They were anxious to finish all
projects, graduate, and to move on in life.
The senior class with funds left from their junior
money raising projects, sold Christmas trees and wreathes
to pad their account. The senior gift to the school was a
microwave oven. Mr. Hartung and Mr. Buck were the
sponsors, and they helped a great deal with all the
activities, including a planned senior day at South Boulder

Congratulations Seniors of I98I from LAWRCO INC. Nederland Realty the Mountain Experts
Proudly receiving diplomas on Saturday, June 6,
the graduating class of l98l offered its last goodbys
Led by processional marshals, Steve Farentinos
and Serena Siegfried, the graduates marched down
the aisle just steps away from entering adulthood.
Ushers, Julie Callister, Heidi Lutz, Dave Ludwick, Kent
Snow and Garvin DeHaas checked tickets at the
door, passed out flowers to the mothers of the
graduates, and supervised 550 guests.
Class Salutatorian, Patty Fuller offered a poem as
her feelings about the class, the world and the
emotions which she felt. Valedictorian Erik Kirby
presented a speech which was humourous and
touching, concerning his years at Nederland. Channel
4 weatherman Sam Allred gave an address entitled,
"Suggestion From Living." Mr. Allred's speech was
well accepted by the graduates. Class President
Stevie Keene presented the class gift, a microwave
oven to be used in the student store. Counselor Don
Smith presented special awards and scholarships to
many of the graduates. During the afternoon,
ceremony, a slide show was given by the class,
which showed many of the happenings and various
poses throughout the year.
Although the ceremony was beautiful and
touching, it was also very sad for the staff, students
and friends who will be losing 27 of NHS's most
dedicated and fine students.
