y Neville High School-A
.Tradition In Northeast Louisiana as
t Neville High School is a living monument to excellence.
From the graceful oaks to the alma mater, Neville is steeped
in tradition. Since the laying of her cornerstone, Neville has
followed certain customs which have instilled pride in all of
her students. Some traditions are old and some new, but all
contribute to the excellence here at Neville High School.
The physical aspects of Neville High School contribute to
her tradition. The building serves as a reminder of days past.
Built in 1931, Neville is the oldest school in this area. To
those of our present generation, she has always been the same.
Neville was built during the depression. Craftsmen labored
long hours on every detail. Neville's graceful lines and
symmetry are a result oflthis extra care.
Evergreens surround the campus creating a peaceful
atmosphere. In order to add to the beauty of the grounds,
the Senior Class of 1969 dedicated the circular garden in
loving 'memory of Dorothy Hodge, Neville's devoted
The stadium has hosted a tradition of Tiger Pride since
1940. It has seen generations of victory and defeat, but always
outstanding has been Tiger sportsmanship.
To accommodate the ever-growing student body, the band
building and the annex were added in the sixties. Though built
in more recent times, they blend with Neville's stately

The Memorial Plaque honors Neville World War II
' ' V95
Honoring the flag of the United States has become a tradition
at Neville High School. The practice was initiated after World
War II to honor the brave graduates of this school who died
in the line of duty. A large plaque hangs in the auditorium lobby
in memory of these men. After the war a flagpole was erected
in memory of Theodore F. Terzia. Each morning all students
stand at attention as the flag is raised. Afterwards they recite
the Pledge of Allegiance. At the end of the day, students remain
standing after the bell has rung for the lowering of the flag.
This custom makes sfudents aware of their duties as citizens and
exemplifies another living tradition of Neville High School.
Susan Johnson, Debbie Hanee, and David Brown raise
the flag at the moming bell.

Spiritmakets Arouse Enthusiasm
Neville High School has always been noted for its spirit. Membership in spirit promoting
organizations brings both high honors and hard work. Cheerleaders, Tigerettes, and band
members have boosted school morale since the school's early years. Cheerleaders put long hours
into the organization of pep assemblies, bonfires, dress-up days, and other activities. They attend
cheerleading camp each summer and hold clinics. The Tigerettes were established in 1937, but
it wasn't until 1946 that, with the help of Coach Bill Ruple and Miss Mae Coker, they became
more involved in school activities. Their support is the backbone of Neville's spirit. Band members
bolster enthusiasm by playing team songs such as f'Tiger Rag" and "Loyalty." They also put
on colorful half-time shows and represent Neville in community activities. t
In recent years, two new Tiger attractions have been added+Shasta, our mascot, and the
fabulous Bengal Belles. The first Shasta was purchased in 1964. School children of all ages
contributed the money. Since then he has been succeeded by two others. Shasta has become
a tradition symbolizing our great Tiger Pride. Since their formation in 1969, the Bengal Belles
have won fame statewide. They dance at assemblies, athletic contests and public events. The
Bengal Belles represent a tradition of excellence.

Neville athletes have always upheld the winning tradition by
excelling in all types of sports. We are proud of this tradition,
and we show our pride on the scoreboard, not on the walls and
campuses of other schools. Neville Tigers never boo officials
or other players, and we never make excuses for losing a game.
Although we are a small school, we constantly accept the
challenges offered by larger ones by striving for the best from
every one of our players.
Excellent football teams are a tradition at Neville, and we
are known all over the state for our outstanding performances
on the football field. In the last 30 years we have reached the
playoffs 17 times and claimed the State Championship 5 times.
Our record since 1945 is 280 won and 81 lost. Other schools
may come and go, but Neville has traditionally remained on
Although Neville is known all over the state for football,
other sports are not neglected. Our basketball teams always
strive for excellence. We have captured the State Basketball
Championship twiceiin 1957 and 1964. Neville won the
District Championship several times in the 1950's and 1960's.
The 1978-79 team produced the first winning record in 4 years,
a tradition we hope to continue. The girl's basketball team,
reinstated in 1978, has exhibited true Tiger spirit this year by
organizing the homecoming dance.
Spring sports are important at Neville, too. Our baseball
team has one of the "winningest" records in the state. They
have won 127 and lost 31 since 1972. Six times they have
brought home the State Championship trophy. Five former
Tigers have gone on to play professional baseball. Neville has
had 8 All-State baseballers in the last 15 years. Numerous
baseball players have continued their educations by earning
collegiate athletic scholarships.
The golf team has also traditionally placed high in state
competitions. They won the State Championship in 1957, 1963,
1975, 1976, 1977, and 19793 and placed second in 1978. The
Neville golf team has won its regional every year except one
since the first year we had a team. Neville has had several
players on golf scholarships, and there are 7 former Tigers
presently playing college golf.
Other spring sports that are part of Neville's tradition are
track, tennis, and fishing. The Neville track team has many
trophies to show for their diligent efforts. We have had many
outstanding tracksters perform with the traditional excellence
characteristic of Neville. The tennis team has always
represented Neville well in various tournaments held
throughout the state. Both our men and women players are
known to tennis buffs. Although little is heard about the fishing
team, they recently brought home several first place trophies.
Fishing is a new Tiger sport which has already proved to be
part of the winning Tiger tradition.
The hard working coaching staff help to uphold the winning
Tiger tradition. Coaches Brown, Coats, Pee, Ragan, Smith, and
Vallery contribute their time, thought, and energies to
maintaining the level of excellence in sports at Neville.
, g Tiger Assemblies and
r Homecoming+Time,-Honored Traditions
Since l937,' homecoming activities
have been traditional at Neville.
Homecoming week is always an
exciting time. Every year Alumni
"come home" to Neville and share 'in
the traditional homecoming activities.
Present homecoming activities center
around the school. Different clubs and
organizations make displays aimed at
promoting Tiger spirit and place them
around the front circle of the school.
This National Honor Society sponsors
a spirit link contest. Freshmen, juniors,
.and seniors buy spirit links for 5 cents
each, and the class with the longest
chain wins. The football team chooses
a Homecoming Queen and Court who
are presented at the assembly by the
nominating player and then at the
game that night by a notable alumnus.

Many old traditions are connected with the assemblies at Neville. Every
underclassman has dreamed of the time when he can finally march into the
auditorium as a senior, envied and admired by the standing student body. The
president of the Student Council presides over every assembly, which always
begins with the opportunity for individual silent prayer, the Pledge of
Al egiance, and the "Star Spangled Banner." Neville students take pride in
the high standards of conduct traditional at Neville and behave themselves
accordingly. , .
Although we are few in number, no other school can match our spirit and
enthusiasm. No assembly would be the same without Shasta and his own "Tiger
Spirit." The students' response to such traditional cheers as: "'Gimme a
Tremendous T", "V-I-C-T-O-R-Y", and "Z, Bits", is overwhelming. The
freshmen, juniors, seniors, and band compete fiercely for the Spirit Stick, but
no matter which group receives the award, it's always the entire student body
that wins it. 'Finally everyone grows quiet as the words to the Alma Mater
appear and the band begins to play. A shiver of pride runs down everyone's
spina as voices rise together on the last notes singing, "and all our memories
o 't ee". '

The Student Council is as much a part of Neville as
Neville itself. Established in 1931, it is a time-honored
tradition. Neville was one of three schools in the state
to first organize the Louisiana Association of Student
Councils and since then has held the state offices of
President, Vice-President, and Parliamentarian.
The National Honor Society also has a legacy of
tradition. It was formed in 1932. Students having a B
average, teachers' recommendations, and outstanding
moral character are chosen as member. The National
Honor Society produces an annual student directory,
sponsors Teacher of the Month, and participates in
various community activities.
Clubs supplementing regular academic programs are
not a new tradition. The Speech Club, Home and Family
Living Club, Latin Club, Foreign Language Club, and
the Future Business Leaders of America serve as a link
between the classroom and extracurricular activities.
The Key Club is a boys' organization which provides
services to the community. fhe Octagon Club, one of
the more active clubs, participates in civic, school, and
money-making projects. It is an extension of the
Optimist Club. Representatives from each club form the
Inter-Club Council, which oversees the activities of the
various organizations of Neville High School.

Outstanding Students Gain
National Merit Semi-Finalists: John White, William Erwin, Matt Meinel, Kathy Sims.
Neville's tradition of high academic achievement was
continued this year with the announcement of National
Merit Semi-Finalists. Although a school the size of
Neville would normally have .5 NMSF, Neville had
four. They are-William Erwin, Matt Meinel, Kathy
Sims and John White. These students are among the
top half of one percent of the state's senior class.
After being selected as semi-finalists, they become
eligible to compete for other scholarships offered
through the National Merit Program. Some 1000
National Merit S1000 scholarships are awarded. To be
considered for merit scholarships, semifinalists must
qualify as finalists by meeting further requirements-by
being fully endorsed and recommended by their
principals, submitting records that confirm high
academic standing, and substantiating their' high
qualifying test scores with equivalent scores on the
The four merit scholars received mail from colleges
and universities from all over the country. They
represented Neville on several occasions, bringing
recognition to their school as well as to themselves. Their
pictures, along with those of the eight other
semi-finalists from the parish, were published in the
News Star World. They were also recognized at a
meeting of the Monroe City School Board.
Mike Lawrence-DAR Good Citizen
Mike Lawrence was this year's recipient of the DAR
Good Citizen's Award. One student was chosen from each
school in recognition for his outstanding achievements and
contributions to his school and community. Mike was
recognized at a luncheon by the Daughters of the American
Revolution. Neville High School is proud of Mike and
appreciates all that he has done to better his school.
High Academic Standards Traditional at Neville
During the Summer three Neville
Students, Annette Braud, Ashley
Wilkins, and Chris McHenry, par-
ticipated in Girl's State and Boy's
State at L.S.U. The purpose of the
convention was to learn more about
the state government and how it
operates. The students were able to
participate in their own state
government by running for state
wide offices in the elections held by
the students. After writing their own
campaign speeches, Annette Braud
was elected Commissioner of
Health, Ashley Wilkins was elected
to the House of Representatives, and
Chris McHenry was elected District
Judge. The participants in Boy's
State and Girl's State were separat-
ed during the week, until a joint
convocation, where they heard
Governor Edwin Edwards and
Senator Gillis Long speak,
to Girls State and Boys Statei Chris McHenry, Ashley Wilkins, and Annette Braud.
Debate Team: William Erwin and Steve Nordyke
The Debate Team works long and hard
throughout the year. They represent Neville in
debate tournaments held around the state. This
summer William Erwin and Steve Nordyke
attended camp at Georgetown University in
Washington, D.C. They have attended tour-
naments at Byrd High School, Acadiana High
School, New Iberia High School, Captain Shreve,
La. State University in -Shreveport, and the
Tournament of Champions.
Members ofthe debate team spend hours in the
library researching for their competitions. They
pore through magazines making notes of items of
importance. They have accumulated hundreds of
notecards on subjects ranging from the Russian
influence to the Third World.

For the past ten years, the Bengal Belles have been a tradition at Neville. The 21-member
dance team has continued to improve over these years, Their achievements have won them
the respect and admiration of their fellow classmates and rival drill teams. Such feats can
only be achieved through hours of dedicated practice.
The Bengal Belles started practice early in April, only days after tryouts had been completed.
The six girls who had been Bengal Belles the previous year already knew what was expected
of them--Perfection! The new members found that perfection was not easily obtained. It meant
getting to practice at 6:00 every morning and usually staying late during evening practice.
The results of this extra effort were shown in Dallas at the S.M.U. Drill Team Camp, where
they won a first place trophy in the Intermediate Division and the Show-Off Award on Talent
While not hard at work practicing, the Bengal Belles found time to do special projects for
the school, such as painting the gym and placing the big "Welcome" sign in the lobby. They
also provided entertainment at assemblies and during half-time at football games.
The end of football season did not mean the end of practice. The Bengal Belles had to
prepare for competition against northern Louisiana drill teams at Northwestern University
in Natchitoches. Again their practice paid off as they brought home two second place trophies,
which qualified them for national competition.
December also brought basketball season, Apart from performing for basketball games at
Neville, the Bengal Belles also gave excellent performances during the News Star and
Pacemaker Tournaments held at Northeast. Practice continued, and on February 2, the Belles
traveled to New Orleans to compete against drill teams from all over the state.
The highlight of the year for the Bengal Belles was their trip to California. For weeks
they worked to raise money by asking local businessmen to sponsor them. Finally on February
5, after weeks of waiting, they boarded a plane bound for Los Angeles. There they competed
against teams from all over the country in the Los Angeles Sports Arena. Although the trip
was filled with' more practice and tough competition, they managed to get in some
All good things must come to an end, and so it was for the '79-80 Bengal Belles. As they

they had received at the Talent Show, their last performance before the school, they realized
that it had indeed been worth all the tears and sweat.

also strolled through the halls singing carols on the last day of school before
Christmas. Christmas carols were played each morning over the Intercom before
school to help everyone get into the spirit.
The Speech Club sold candy-grams every morning. Friends and sweethearts were
able to send seasons greetings and candycanes to each other.
On December I8, the traditional Christmas assembly was held. The choir sang
Christmas carols to the accompaniment of Sharon Robinson on the piano and

often travel out of town, or even out of state. to reach their destination,
sometimes events are held much closer to home,
Mrs. Blanchard's Speech classes travel all over the state to attend
speech tournaments and festivals. There they compete in both acting and
debate, and by placing lst, 2nd, or 3rd, they are eligible to attend the
Tournament of Champions.
In April, the band journeyed to Knoxville, Tennessee to participate in
the l980 Dogwood Arts Band Festival. Bands from all over the nation
compete in 3 areas of competition-fconcert, parade, and street
drill -relative to their concert classification.
Area High School Seniors were invited to Career Day at Northeast
on Nov. 6. There they were given a chance to investigate the different
types of careers open to them. On Dec. 5 students were invited to the
La. Tech campus for Tech Day. Students were able to visit the various
departments they were interested in. The lst annual LSU Rally Day at
the W.M. Convention Center gave area high school Juniors and Seniors
a chance to become better acquainted with La. State University.
Mrs. Mehl's Advanced English III class made their annual visit to
Natchez. Miss. to tour the antebellum homes on view during the Natchez
Pilgrimage. French, Spanish and Latin classes went to La. Tech for the
Foreign Language Festival. While there. they were given a chance to
participate in the cultural events of other countries.
Many extracurricular activities were held closer to home. The Home
Economics facilities were used to hold the reception for Alums after the
Homecoming Assembly and the reception for the 32 newly inducted
members of the Honor Society.
Mrs. Sparks and Mrs. Tonore were only two
of the alums who came to the tea after the

New Decade Brings
Karen Townley looks back on past
1979-80 was an eventful year, not only at Neville, but also elsewhere
across the nation. The new decade brought about many changes, and
students at Neville were active participants in the ever-changing world
around them. This year, more than ever, outside events affected the daily
lives of students everywhere.
On November 4, our American Embassy in lran was seiged by militant
Iranian students. For months fifty Americans were held hostage by an
angry nation demanding the return of their exiled Shah. Then, in
December, Russian troops invaded the neighboring country of Afganistan.
As a threat of war hung over the entire nation, students realized that
they had been given a chance to view history as it was being made. When
President Carter proposed the reinstitution of the draft, they anxiously
watched news reports and discussed among themselves the effects that
a war could have on their own generation.
On the local scene, a statewide election was held in November. The
Speech Club sponsored a mock election at Neville. Ballots were passed
out in the homeroom, and, after the votes had been counted, Paul Hardy
won and Dave Treen came in second. The Speech Club and the Octagon
Club were asked to aid KNOE in reporting the votes on Saturday's
election. In the December run-off, the Tigerettes reported the votes to
the news station. By participating in the election process, students gained
valuable experience and a better understanding of their government.
As the price of gas soared past 51.00 a gallon, Neville students
witnessed many changes in their lifestyles. Resorting to more efficient
methods of transportation, some students traded in their gas-guzzling
automobiles for fuel-efficient Mopeds.
Although the seventies brought many changes to Neville, the eighties
will bring even more. But whatever the new decade has in store, the many
time-honored traditions of Neville High School will remain the same,

Spring Has Traditions of ts Own i
Sharon Robinson practices before Talent Show auditions. Mimi Kincaid's dance entertains everyone
Spring is an eventful time at Neville. Most of
February and March is spent practicing for the
Talent Show. The theme for this year's talent
show was "Tiger Night Live", a parody of the
popular TV show, "Saturday Night Live". Many
talented students-and some not so talented-were
anxious to show off their skills in this annual
event. The Bengal Beaus, a group of Senior boys
who imitate the Bengal Belles, are a traditional
attraction at the Talent Show. At the closing of
the show, the Bengal Belles danced their last
dance of the year. Much hard work and intense
preparation went into the show, but the end result
proved to be worth the effort.
Superstars competition was held in April.
Seniors participated in events ranging from
"Hamburger-eating" to "softball throwing." The
competition was fierce, but the best man and
woman finally won the distinguished "Superstar"
On may 22 the senior class realized a dream
that had finally come true-Graduation. It took
I2 long years, but the reward was worth the wait.
As the gifts poured in from relatives and friends,
the seniors were finally able to relax and enjoy
the fruits of their labor! -alarm clocks, dictionar-

trips to Europe.

Shoulder New Responsibilities
During their years in high school, students begin to take on more and more
responsibility. They are given the chance to participate in their own student
governmentf the Student Council. Members of the Student Council have
successfully fulfilled their responsibility to their fellow classmates. Not only do
they provide a medium between the administration and the student body, but
they also plan activities and special events throughout the year,
Each month the Student Council recognizes the students who have made
substantial contributions to Neville High School. The National Honor Society
honors the outstanding teachers who have contributed their time and effort to
aid both their students and their school.
The 79-80 student body proudly accepted their responsibilities as students,
and by working, playing, cheering. and pulling together successfully completed
another school year,

nglish, Speech, and Foreign
The basics of communication are stressed at Neville
through the English, Speech, and Foreign Language
Departments. Miss Whittington, Mrs. Tucker, Mrs.
Dixon, Mrs. Mehl teach three levels of Englishgbasic,
general, and advanced-enabling students to develop at
their own pace. Mrs. Blanchard's speech classes stress
oral communication-delivering speeches, debating, and
acting. Students taking speech often attend tournaments
and festivals to compete with other students around the
Taking a foreign language under Mrs. Brosset or Mrs.
Bedell enables a student to unlock many doors which
would otherwise remain closed. A knowledge of Latin
provides a better understanding of the English language,
while mastering French or Spanish serves as a key to
broadening one's knowledge of the outside world.

While other high school courses provide for the development of
the mind, physical education provides for the development of the
body. Although only two years of P.E. are required many 'studtents'
prefer to take a P.E. class all four years of high school. Students
involved in all types of sports receive credit in P.E., including
Tigerettes and Bengal Belles. Volleyball, basketball, ping-pong and
other sports enjoyed during P.E. are all designed to improve
co-ordination and build healthier bodies. The P.E. department at
Neville does all it can to encourage students to exert their bodies
as well as their minds. Mrs. Hagar and Mrs. Spears constantly think
of new ways to make their girls',P.E. classes more interesting, while
Coach Brown and Coach Coates often have to prod their boys into
exerting some energy. Often a student will schedule a P.E. course
expecting to get an easy A, but finds himself having to work very
hard for his grade.

Mrs. Johnson is always available to
students for advice and counseling, and is
always ready to lend her services wherever
they are needed.
In Home and Family Living classes
students learn how to deal with problems,
get along with others, and meet the
challenges and responsibilities of life.
Students are also given an opportunity to
use the facilities of the Home Economics
Department. Guest speakers included
several ministers, a policeman, a psychia-

The art department encourages the
development of creative expression.
Students learn the fundamentals of
art-proportion, color harmony, and
balance-as they progress through the
four levels of art taught at Neville. Under
the direction of Mr. Millard, students
develop a true appreciation of line and
color. Their projects are graded on a
combination of effort and skill.
The Industrial Arts Department teaches
students a wide variety of skills. In this
class students learn everything from
small-engine repair to mechanical draw-
ing. By learning to use power saws and
compress drills, students gain a sense of
accomplishment. Those students planning
to become architects or engineers often
take mechanical drawing. This course
teaches the art of drawing buildings,
objects, and lines precisely to scale.

Because they have attended NHS
for the longest time, the seniors are
the most familiar with the Neville
traditions, and are admired and
respected by the underclassmen.
Although it may not always be true,
seniors are often regarded as being
older and wiser. Seniors realize this,
and perhaps this knowledge makes
them stand a little taller, walk a
little prouder, and try a little harder.
Often it is the knowledge that a
freshman is watching him that
prevents a senior from breaking
some rule that he has often broken
before. Underclassmen have long
looked forward to becoming seniors,
and nothing can contain their pride
as they march into the auditorium
for the first time as seniors, or when
they march out the last time as

To End of School Trips
After successfully completing twelve
years of school most seniors feel the
need to take an end of the year trip.
Friends get together and plan their
vacation for weeks. Finally school is out
for the seniors, and time comes for the
vacation to begin. One of the most
popular vacation spots is Florida.
There, long days of warm sunshine are
spent on the white sands admiring the
frothy waves. Some seniors are lucky
enough to go further afield to places
such as Hawaii and even Europe. These
trips are often the first taste of
complete freedom and responsibility.

Term Papers Caused
During the second nine weeks of school, Mrs.
Mehl assigned tcrm papers to her senior classes.
They were due the Monday after the Thanks-
giving holidays, and, as usual, the students were
slow getting started. The public library was
crowded during the week of Thanksgiving with
students hurrying to finish researching their
subjects. Many students spent Thanksgiving
Day frantically writing in an attempt to finish
before the Monday deadline, The unfortunate
few who could not find anyone else to type
their term papers spent the weekend typing it
Finally Monday morning arrived and it was
time for the finished copy to be handed in,
complete with rough draft and notecards. Many
students breathed a sigh of relief, but then
immediately began worrying about the grades
they would receive. Although the work was L X
over for the students, it had just begun for Mrs. 'M A
Mehl, who spent weeks grading the papers. 'fff

From College Applications Seniors
Qoo,oy ee:ool.o .
When the seniors finally leave Neville
they are well prepared for college courses.
Neville has traditionally encouraged stu-
dents to take courses designed to prepare
them for college. Students taking the
required curriculum receive a Neville
diploma in addition to the stateldiploma.
This curriculum includes four years of
English, three years of math, two years of
science, and two years of a foreign lan-
An adequate background in these subjects
is often very useful in college and is some-
times the deciding factor in a student's
gaining admission to the college of his
choice. Most senior classes are geared
toward the college-bound student, and
teachers constantly remind students ofthe
hardships to be expected in college. This
diligent preparation pays off in the end.
Neville graduates have always excelled in
college, and college professors constantly
praise former Neville students.

The Neville High School coat of
Arms is a tradition American Heraldic
design. The basic color theme is black
and gold. Ribbons above and below
display the school name and motto,
"pro bond scholaen, meaning "for the
good of the school!" The tiger mascot
leaps over the black and gold wreath
at the top of the shield. Laurel leaves,
symbolizing achievement, success, and
victory, mantle the shield.
The sheild is devided into equal
quadrants separated by a chain of
interlocking links denoting strength,
unity and harmony.
In the upper left quadrant is a quill,
superimposed over a scroll, symbols of
learning and literature.
In the upper right quadrant, on a
field of black, is the golden winged foot
of Mercury, symbolizing athletic
strength and participation in sports.
In the lower left quadrant is a golden
lyre on a field of black denoting music,
its appreciation and study.
In the last quadrant, in the lower
right, is the science symbol of the atom,
symbolizing scienific learning and

The last day of school is a sad occasion for
the Seniors. This is the last time we will ever sit
in class together-often laughing, sometimes
crying, but most of the time, just plain bored.
Those moments of hilarity spent laughing over
the antics of a classmate, those moments of
companionship spent sympathizing over the
injustices of a teacher, will soon become only
memories. We put away our textbooks and
notepads, and, although we may soon get new
ones, they will never seem quite the same without
the names of our former classmates scribbled in
the margin. On the last day of school we finally
realize what has often seemed like a dream-fthis
is truly the last day of school. We sit and stare
at the friends we've made over the years-can
it be true that we may never see some of them
again? We will go our separate ways, do our
separate things, live our separate lives, and we
will never pass this way again.

The first day of school was a special day for the Juniors. After
one whole year spent away from Neville, they were finally able to
enjoy again all the privileges of being a Neville Tiger. The Juniors
soon proved that, even though a year had passed, they were still a
part of the great Tiger Tradition. They were eager to enter into the
spirited activities associated with NevilleAposter parties, assemblies,
homecoming, and bonfires.
The Juniors show how glad they are to be back at Neville by yelling
louder, studying harder, and actively supporting all activities
associated with Neville High School.

One Friday Emily wore her nightgown to school. The
students giggled and the teachers shook their heads, but all at
Neville knew that she was only showing her spirit by dressing
up for Baby Day. Each Friday during football season the
cheerleaders asked that the student body dress in some zany
fashion to help bolster spirit. Students dug out their oldest
clothes for Tacky Day, then they donned cowboy boots and
overalls for Farmer Brown Day. Other dressup days included
Fired-Up Day, Sports Day, Backwards Day, Fifties Day, Black
and Gold Day, Spook Day, and Clown Day.
Tests Can Mean College
Juniors begin preparing for college early in the year by
taking various college preparatory tests. Many take the
PSAT in hopes of receiving one of the many scholarships
sponsored by the National Merit Program. Those planning
to attend a college or university in Louisiana take the ACT,
while some juniors hoping to go to school out-of-state take
the SAT. Taking these tests as juniors often proves to be
to their advantage. Juniors are given two extra points on
the ACT to compensate for their lack of experience
Students spend weeks discussing the tests and trying to
prepare themselves for tedious hours of testing. Neville
students have traditionally scored above the national
average and a high score often leads to advanced placement
in college courses.

The Juniors came back from Carroll with full steam ahead. There
is hardly an organization at Neville that does not have several
hard-working juniors as active members. Junior athletes have had
outstanding seasons. Quarterback Bubby Brister led the Bengals to
the 3AAAA football title. Daren Reeves scored many points for the
basketball team, while other juniors led the J.V. teams to victory.
Juniors support clubs by serving as officers or by just pitching in on
projects. School improvements were made by juniors serving on the
Student Council, Octagon Club, and Interclub Council.
Then of course, there is that great Junior Spirit. This year the
Juniors decorated Forsythe Avenue with signs, cheered with
enthusiasm, and won several Spirit Sticks. Amy Culp, Mary Flo
Geisler, and Naomi McCrocklin, our three juniors serving as J.V.
cheerleaders, attended summer camp and spent long hours preparin
routines and decorations for games and assemblies. The twelve junior
who joined the Bengal Belles this year were awkward at first, bu
by September they really deserved their title-The Fabulous Benga
Belles. Juniors in the Flag Corp and the Band promoted the winnin
tradition. The beat of Junior dmmmer Robby Wiggins quickened th
pace of assemblies.
Since the Junior year is undoubtedly one of the hardest, student
find themselves faced with a tnxe challenge. Juniors compete wit
Seniors in many classes such as chemistry, history, and algebra. Eac
class at Neville adds something special to every student's education
Juniors-the next leaders of Neville High School-are sure to uphol
the Tiger traditions.

Although the sophomores must spend their second
year of high school at Carroll, they have traditionally
remained a part of all the activities of NHS. Neville
students at Carroll participate in all types of sports, the
NHS band, Tigerettes, and clubs and organizations at
Neville. Being away from Neville for a year instills in
these students a deeper love for Neville, and, if possible,
an even greater sense of pride.
Sophomores love to come to Neville assemblies, and
they show it by always yelling the loudest and longest
for the Neville Tigers. Although the sophomores do not
attend Neville, they still uphold all the traditions
associated with Neville. They have poster parties, make
homecoming displays, and attend all the nighttime
activities at Neville. Many people believe that Neville
has only three grades, but obviously Neville would be
incomplete without the loyal sophomores at Carroll.

Although many courses are offered at Carroll, the

in all, sophomores stay busy at Carroll preparing to

homeroom presents a Jack-o-Lantern entry for display in the lobby. Entries this year ranged from an Indian chief
to a Sesame Street character. Mrs. Tucker's homeroom won with a caterpillar entry, followed by "Miss Piggy"
from Coach Vallery's homeroom. A bumblebee from Mrs. Blanchardls homeroom pulled in third. Do-nuts were
awarded to the winning homeroom. '

Football games are lots of fun for the Tigerettes.
Although Freshmen are new to Neville, they are not new to
the great Tiger Spirit. This young group of Tigers has more than
the usual amount of spirit. This year, led by the Freshman
Tigerettes, they won the Spirit Stick at their very first
assemblyawhich shows that these freshmen are well-acquainted
with the old Tiger traditions.
The Tigerettes did have a fantastic year. Under the direction
of Mrs. Dawson, Mrs. Wilson, and the Tigerette leaders, they
showed some of the excellence of the Tigerettes of years past.
Their spirit and support at football and basketball games really
spurred the players on to great seasons. They even performed
complicated half-time routines with the Tiger Band.
We are proud of these spirited young Tigers, and are confident
of their ability to uphold the Neville traditions throughout their
high school years.
Freshman Tigerettes cheer loudly during assemblies.

1979-80 Varsrty Cheerleaders
Beginning last spring six special girls, Sally, Cara,
Ann, Mandy, Katherine, and Susan, pulled together
as one, and from then on they devoted their lives
to the betterment of Neville High School. With hazy
visions of their high hopes for the future, their goals
gradually came in sight.
Each summer morning these six girls were at the
school from 6 a.m. till-stenciling and painting over
50 signs for the upcoming football season, writing
the Alma Mater on the shape of a huge tiger head,
painting the football roster on 'Our Tiger Family
Tree', making necklaces for each of the football and
basketball player's mothers, planning assembly
themes, and constructing the enormous theme sign
for the auditorium-'The Tigers are on the Move
Again'. This touches only the surface of the work
these girls didg it would be impossible to write down
the innumerable duties they performed.
They had various money-making projects, but the
two most outstanding were holding a cheerleader
clinic and the selling theme bumper stickers.
With the school year starting, these girls knew
they had magic to do and hearts to warm. Many
people expected a great deal from them.
In their great pep assemblies, outstanding skits,
weekly parties for their players, organizing of Secret
Brother Week, decorating for the Homecoming
Court and the victory party after the Ouachita game,
and always having smiles on their faces and open
hearts to their school, they gained respect and
reached expectations higher than anyone ever
dreamed they could.
It's never easy to say goodbye, especially to people
who have given so much to one cause. This describes
our farewell to these six girls but the memories they
have left behind will never fade. We're grateful to
these unique cheerleaders for lifting that special
Tiger Spirit to its peak. We can truly say that these
cheerleaders were by far the best. Thank you Sally,
Cara, Ann, Mandy, Katherine, and Susan, you will
remain in our hearts forever!!

TURN YOUR ATTENTION TO THE
CENTER AISLE . . .
The Bengal Belles are made up of
twenty-one dedicated girls who devoted their
entire summer to practice. They worked hard
in order to perfect the dances which they took
to camp. This year practice paid off as they
attended drill team camp at Southern
Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. They
won a trophy for outstanding dance at
Creative Night and tied for first place in the
Heads turn as these girls march down the
aisles to the stage to perform their precision
dances. They entertain the fans at football
and basketball games. They compete in
competitions in Natchitoches and in New
Orleans. They were also asked to perform at
Ewing Colliseum at the News Star Tour-
nament and at the Pacemaker Classic. Their
final dance came at the end of the year with
their performance at the talent show.
Through all the sweat of practice and hard
work and tears of frustration and joy, these
girls are drawn closer together. In a special
way each girI's dream has become a reality.
Truly none of them will ever forget her
memories of being a Bengal Belle and each
will always hold a special place in her heart
for these memories.
Bengal Belles have a Coke and a Smile!

Neville Tops Ouachita in
The annual Jamboree against Ouachita opened the 1979 football season for the Tigers. After the
Freshman Team had shut out Boley and Ouachita J.V. had edged the Neville J.V., 8 to 6, the Varsity
Tigers totally dominated their 20 minutes against Ouachita.
After holding Ouachita on their first possession, the Tigers put together an impressive 9-play drive,
picking up 56 yards. But once they reached the 4, they were unable to take it in for the
The game remained scoreless until the 2nd half, when Neville marched down-field on 10 plays
picking up 80 yards. Mike Cage then went in for the Touchdown. Four different backs saw action
in the game, with Joe Giovingo carrying the ball 4 times for 20 yards, and leading all rushers with
59 yards on I6 carries.
The defense proved to be a powerful force to be reckoned with. They not only shut out their
opponents, but also didn't allow the Lions a single first down.
Clint Golson and Craig Salter lead way for Mike Cage.

Tennis was a year-round affair for the members of the Neville tennis
team. Starting in August the members participated in a 6th period
tennis class credited as P. E. In February a round-robin tournament
was held to determine the five competing teams for boys and girls
singles and doubles. The players began staying after school to practice
for the first match held in late February. Neville sponsored her
matches at Chennault Park. The team attended seven out of town
games at places such as Shreveport, Alexandria, and Ruston
The Robinson Boys, Tom and Matt, were valuable assets to the
Tiger team. Last year Matt placed first in the State I4 and Under
competition, while Tom placed 4th in the 16 and Under class
Mrs. Hagar and Mrs. Spears sponsored the team and accompanied
them to matches. Mrs. Charlotte Bolton has worked with the Tiger
tennis team for many years. She was on leave this year but she gave
the team many hours of her time and support.

Neville tracksters sped through a great season in 1980 under the direction
of Coach Mike Vallery. Practice began in early February. Athletes from many
different sports were attracted to the challenge of track. The boys worked out
with weights and practiced their individual events. The Tigers combined the
speed of their relay team and a surprisingly strong show on the field to win
many honors. Entries were made in the long jump, the mile, the half-mile,
the quarter mile, the mile relay, the 100-yd. sprint, the pole vault, and a new
event, the 300-Meter hurdles. The Tiger track team participated in indoor
competition at the Civic Center, the District Meet at NLU, other meets around
the state, as well as the annual Neville Relays.
Mike Vallery also coaches the J. V. football team. Though he has completed
only two years, he already has a record he can be proud of. Last year his
team won the district championship and this year he had a 7-2 season. Coach
Vallery has a big responsibility preparing his boys for the challenges of the
varsity team, but he handles it with ease.

Every year Coach Joe Coats leads the Tiger Baseball team as well as the Freshman
football team to a winning season. In the last 15 years, Neville has had eight
All-State baseballers and has brought home the State Championship trophy six
times. The team spends the spring months practicing in Forsythe Park and playing
area high school baseball teams. With most of last year's team returning, experience
proved to be a valuable asset.
Coach Coats grew up with the Tigers. He is a former Neville linebacker and
his father, Jim Coats, coached at Neville from 1949 through 1957.

The Student Council, through its various activities, attempts to represent the student body and school by providing a forum for student expression
and to initiate projects for the good of the school and the community. In preparation for the I979-80 school year, the Council was busy this
summer selling Neville hats and pennants, organizing Freshmen Orientation, publishing a new student handbook, entitled "Tiger Tracks", and
convincing the city to repave the front circle of the school.
Workshops and conventions provide many opportunities for Student Council leaders to learn to be better leaders in their school and later
to become active leaders in the community. The Neville Student Council was well represented this year at NASC in Winter Park, Florida
and at Regional Workshop in Natchitoches, La., by four members, and at LASC by six representatives and two advisors.
Homecoming again this year was a success with the help of the Student Council's sponsoring a multi-media show and entering the display
contest. Homeroom representatives spearheaded the pumpkin decorating contest for Halloween. The winning homeroom was awarded donuts
for their outstanding effort.
During the spring semester the Council sponsored the annual Talent Show and The Senior Superstar Competition, as well as a computer
dating project. ,

We, the 1980 MONROYAN Staff, have worked unceasingly to bring this annual to the students of Neville High School. Under the directit
of Teresa Free, our editor and only returning staff member, and our sponsor, Mrs. Dixon, we were transformed into an organized team.
We attended the Henington Yearbook workshop at N,L.U., where we discussed the theme and learned new and useful skills. Marcie Sta:
won the award for Best Overall Photographer, while John Masters brought home the Best Candid Photograph trophy. Following the worksho
we spent long hot days selling ads, hoping that our S300 minimum would soon be met.
After Mrs. Dixon outlined our theme, the rush began. Emily Wilkey, Dianna Moore, Maria Zaldivar, and Chris McHenry cropped, organize-
identified, and alphabeticized picturesg proofread and typed copy, and drew tripaks. Kathy Sims and Louise Seymour began a semester of writii
copy. Our artist Dawn Wilbanks spent long hours perfecting details of each sketch. Despite this, nothing could have been done without t
time, assistance, and support that Mrs. Dixon so lovingly gave. John Masters, Joel Minter, Steve Nordyke, Marcie Stassi, and Craig Tarv
spent a semester taking pictures-always looking for new ideas. The long hours they spent in the darkroom developing pictures and trying
make life easier for the rest of the staff did not go unappreciated.
Extensive research was done in order to bring you Factual information. After thumbing through old yearbooks, questioning students, teache
and staff and pooling all our memories, we felt a little eerie, but immensely proud, for we realized that students, now older than our paren
walked these same halls, felt the same emotions, and followed the same traditions as the students of today and tomorrow. Tiger Pride is root
in tradition. This realization is the essence of the l980 MONROYAN.

Chorus provides the opportunity
not only to explore musical values,
but also to learn to cooperate and get
along with others for the good of the
group. The mixed choir is composed
of juniors and seniors. This choir
presents Christmas and Spring
assembly programs for the school
and sings for civic organizations.
Students from this group participate
in All-State Chorus and area
festivals. The freshmen chorus is a
mixed group which assists in
presenting programs. The choral
program is open to all students. For
those who are interested in music,
but do not care to perform, a course
in general music is offered.
