The chance to show oth- ers those special times like winning a football or basketball game or putting on a four-star play were only a few ways the students showed their pride for their school. If only people knew the time the students put into the club activities, or helping other sports run smoothly then To reach my goals I had to take more time and work a little harder at what I was doing in order to get the results that I wanted. It was worth it!! - Matt Ritchie they would appreci- ate the finished prod- uct as much as the students did. Even with all the work the students made the school year fun, be- cause — they knew! It was only too soon that school began. Leaving behind the late nights and even later mornings so they could be at school by 8:00 a.m. was something many students regretted. However, realizing that tanning hours in the sizzling sun were drawing to a close, they began to rea- quaint themselves with their textbooks and class schedules. They knew the time had come for a new year full of work and fun with new friends and faces at new places! The new gen- eration of freshmen not only brought new faces to brighten our hallways, but also added a little fun to the seniors last-first day. It was these stu- dents who were made to sit in the front of the bus and who were booed at during the pep ses- sions when they shouted their gradua- tion year of ' 90.

The Dogs went on to beat Southside 22-14. Under the leadership of Direc- tor Mark Best, Majorettes Lei Bcardsley, and Beth Hugenard, the band had a very successful season.

New — (Continued From page 3) jokes played on the freshmen by other students was when they would direct the newcomers to the door that led no- where. Remembering the good ole days, the seniors left the class of ' 90 a prophe- cy, " It ' s only just be- gun! " Making it through their freshmen year was not only a relief for the sophomores, but also a sign of ma- turity for most. For these students being a sophomore gave them courage to try new and better things such as dating, or go- ing to new places. The once shy and re- served freshmen had become an outgoing The first day of school was real exciting for me. Being a freshman, I was new to the school, and unfamiliar with all the people, there were so many I ' d never seen before. Kim Doudt sophomore. It was this attitude that would lead most of the sophomores to a successful year! Being only a few steps away from that final senior year was a thought inbedded in the minds of many ju- niors. Now upper- classman, and most able to drive, many new and exciting op- portunities awaited them. Many juniors anxiously awaited for spring, and the ju- nior-senior prom that they had been plan- ning for a long time. Being an upperclass- man had many advan- tages, but not with out added responsi- bility. Now, being in the second half of their high school ca- reers, the class of ' 88 had to help the se- niors set a good ex- ample for the rest of the school. Realizing that this year was their last time for many things, the senior class didn ' t miss a trick. From playing tricks on the freshmens first day, to playing their last ath- letic event or per- forming in their last play as a student of New Haven, the se- niors found a way to leave their mark. Many seniors had mixed emotions about their final year of high school. What each person was thinking we ' ll never know, but wouldn ' t you like to? Even with each class having its own style, and differences, the students pulled together to make the year the best it could be, because — they knew! 3 Opening 5 W Stcidc sdc Did Ya Know that only 20% of the student body responded to the survey that these facts were compiled from. The rest of these percentages are based upon the percent of those who responded. 25% of the Bulldogs said that Homecommg was their favorite event of the school year.

Various activities made up the lives of many students. Whether it was being in student council to playing in one of the athletic events, attending the prom, or making the final preparations for commencement, the students of New Haven were given the chance to . . . IVE IT UP Lakes and beaches make up a large portion of students ' summer vacations as the days were long and hot. However, as summer drew to a close a number of cottages were locked up as many students were kept busy with their fall sport practices. Two to three hours of practice in the morning and evening usually left only enough time for sleeping and eating. Those students who were not in a fall sport found them- selves busy with other activities like the fall play You Can ' t Take it With You. Homecoming week brought even more work with powder puff, the banners, floats, and parade. " Homecoming brought on a lot of additional work because, besides my usual after school activities, I worked on the banner every day until late in the afternoon, " stated Debbie Manns. Highlighting the month of April was the Junior Prom which brought the colors of spring and the magic of love. " Over the sum- mer there really wasn ' t a whole lot of work to be done, but once school started the work became time consuming, but it was worth it!, " exclaimed David Foellinger. Another memory builder was the Senior Dinner Dance. This was a chance for all the seniors to get together for the last time, and share the memories from the past years. Graduation closed the year out as the seniors proudly received their diplomas for four years of hard work. They knew their life as a student of NHHS was over, but for many others it had just begun. plioh by Kelly milmsn J u Dry and enjoying the Bull- dog ' s victory over South Side are juniors Missy Jackson, Pam Gollmer and sopho- mores Bendy Arney and Mary-ann Glidwell.

Three months of summer freedom had just begun. Summer seemed to bring out a dif- ferent side of people. Without the pressures of homework, tests, teachers, deadlines, and the boring everyday routine, students came alive during the summer. " Summer is a great time to relieve brain damage caused by school stress, " explained sophomore Mike McNeal. Memories were what summer was all about. Going to the lake, going on va- cation, or just bumming around were remembered for a long time by stu- dents. Many people went to the lake during their summer vacation. Going skiing, swimming, tubing, or boating never left them bored. Those who went to the lake also had the advantage of renew- ing those summer friendships, or even those romantic flings. " It was great to get together with friends you haven ' t seen all winter. Having friends at the lake is kind of a nice switch, " commented senior Den- ise Gratz. Although school had ended, some students ' minds never strayed far from school, as they prepared for the up- coming school year. Some attended camps for band, pom-pons, cheerlead- ing, academics, and athletics. Many also had jobs to earn extra money. Full-time jobs were an option that could not have been possible during the school year. " I loved having a full-time job in the summer. I made a lot of money, and put some in the bank, " said senior Jenny Meier. Other activities of the " Summer of ' 86 " included the annual Canal Days and Three Rivers Festival celebrations. Due to extremely rainy weather and a new location, there was not as big a turnout during Canal Days as in past years. But the Three Rivers Festival was a huge success. Even when the " Summer of " 86 " came to an end, the memories would last forever. had a great time with my friends. There is just no better time of the year! " stated sophomore Jenny Brock- man. Michelle Geller Many students enjoyed scenery like this if they went to the lake for summer vacation. Pretty Lake in South Milford, Indiana was a good place to go watch the sun set. On August 13, 1986, Loverboy came to the Fort Wayne Memorial Coliseum, with Dokken open- ing the show. The concert was enjoyed by many New Haven students, and will be remembered by all who went. by Michelle Cellei Sophomore Paul Zurbuch, Mike McNeal, and Troy Hoffer hear no evil, speak no evil, or see no evil at Mike ' s cottage on Lake James. Paul and Troy visited Mike for a weekend during the sum- mer. Seniors Andrea Cilley and Melissa Davis take time out to relax and soak up some rays at Marble Lake. Many New Haven students spent quite a bit of their summer vacations at the lake. Su « " Since I was going to be a senior, I tried to make the summer the best one I ' ve ever had. It was great, and when the summer was over it was sad to know my last summer n high school had just ended. " — Andrea Gilley After a very rough evening at the lake, senior Gina Murua amazingly wakes up with a smile on her face. No one seems to know how she does it! Summer 9 t New Experiences Add New Memories Homecoming ' 86 brings out the spirit in all of us Homecoming ' 86 was once again a fun-filled and exciting success. The ac- tivities organized by Student Council brought spirit and the reward of hard work. Some of these activities were the events of Spirit Week, planned by Den- ise Gratz, the parade organized by Kir- sten Stine, and the powder puff game headed up by Gary Fox. Each class also had to do a lot of plan- ning for building a float and designing a class banner. This took weeks of prepa- ration. The junior class won the float competition with the theme " Run Rings Around The Spartans " . The class banner competition was won by the sophomores with the theme " Expand- ing New Horizons " . " I ' m glad to see the results of winning the banner competi- tion " , stated Sophomore Mitch Burris. The special dress-up days, called Spirit Week, ranging from Hawaiian Day to Pajama Day added a touch of spirit to the dull, dreary school days. The parade which started at the New Haven Methodist Church and ended at the high school, was an enjoyable event that really drew a crowd. " I had a lot of fun being in the parade. It ' s an oppor- tunity for the community to see what New Haven is all about, " stated senior Jenny Meier. The Powder Puff Game, which gave New Haven girls a chance to show their athletic football ability, was another outstanding crowd drawer. The Senior Sophomore team, coached by Jeff Grabill, Jeff Kintz, Jeff Sowers, and Kirk Jacquay, defeated the Junior Freshman team with a score of 22-18. The three touchdowns for the Senior Sopho- more team were scored by Stephanie Gratz, Jodi Fitzgerald, and Holly Turner, with Michelle Clements bring- ing in the 2 point conversions. Two of the touchdowns for the Junior Fresh- man team were scored by Chris Danner and the other by Crystal Waters. The coaches for the Junior Freshman team were Rob Moyer, Gary Fox, Troy Frit- cha. Chuck Vachon, and Ken Barnhart. " It was a great experience coaching the juniors and freshmen because they played an outstanding game, and were so cooperative, " stated junior coach Rob Moyer. The humorous " Howard Cosells " , who announced were Mark Koos, Matt Ritchie, and Sean Minnick. Even though watching the game was exciting, many members of the crowd had a hard time keeping their eyes off the male cheerleaders. Those beauties were also candidates for the Homely- coming Queen, which was much like the real Homecoming Queen. But be- cause of their " great " looks, the name Homelycoming Queen was more suit- able. They were John (Joan) Kanable, Curt (Claire) Johnson, Todd (Lucille) Wood, Tony (Antwinette) Crabill, Der- rick (Cleavette) Baker, and the Queen, Scott (Blanche) Eakright. " We all had a lot of fun with the whole deal, and it was a real honor to be selected for my position. Sorry, John, that ' s life!! " stated senior Scott Eakright. " Being a Powder Puff cheerleader for the first time was so much fun. We got to experience what real cheerleaders go through, even though we got to be more crazy. The uniforms were a little uncomfortable, but we managed to concentrate on our skillful cheers, " commented senior cheerleader Curt Johnson. The spirit and enthusiasm continued throughout the night. Students met at Pizza Hut and Dairy Queen to talk about the great events of the evening. — Keiley Koehllnger As part of the New Haven High School Marching Band, the Highlights smile with pride as they per- form one of their many routines to the music of the band. v Homecoming 10 j Seniors Curt Johnson, Chico Pranger, and Derek Baker show their school pride by hamming it up for the camera during Spirit Week. photo by Greg An " Powder Puff was a really special time for girls, especially Se- niors, since we won 3 out of 4 years. It was just neat to see every- one pull together as a team. Our coaches were great, too!

The tension was high as the game began. The Spartans scored the first touchdown of the game after New Ha- ven turned the ball over deep in their own territory, but the ' Dogs countered with a touchdown of their own tying the game 7 to 7. Before the first half was over. Homestead scored twice more and New Haven scored once. During halftime the queen and her court were presented. The 1986-87 Homecoming Queen was Monica Schaefer escorted by Scott Weekly. Her court consisted of seniors Sharon Hathaway escorted by Mark Koos, Mis- ty Snyder escorted by Matt Ritchie, Ju- nior Danielle Miller escorted by Troy Fritcha, Sophomore Kim Trahin escort- ed by ].R. Parent, and Freshman Cami Cox escorted by Mike Dennis. For the first time in New Haven ' s his- tory of Homecoming, cheerleaders were allowed to represent their class on the court. The feelings concerning this new rule were mixed. Some felt that everyone should be given a chance, while others thought the cheerleaders were involved in too many other activities. " I enjoyed being on the court but it was a hassle trying to cheer at the same time, " commented Sophomore Kim Trahin. The score at the beginning of the half was Homestead 21 to New Haven ' s 14. Homestead had two more touchdowns and kept New Haven ' s offense score- less, making the final score of the game 35 to 14. Although there were many bad feel- ings between the teams because of past experiences, most felt the game was played with good sportsmanship by both teams. " I think that the rivalry was still there, but the hatred was gone. They were good sports, " stated Senior Kraig Vondran. New Haven may not have come out on top but the Homecoming week and all the happenings seemed to be a great success. — Monica Schaefer Junior quarterback, Chuck Vachon, hands off ttie ball to senior )ohn Kanable. Although the ' Dogs put up a valiant effort, they lost to the Homestead Spartans 35 to 14, On the Night of the Homecoming game, senior Jeff Kintz wraps his wrist to prepare for a night of hard hitting. Jeff made First Team All Conference for his position as a defensive lineman. Homecoming 12 y " I thought that be- ing on the Homecom- ing court was an hon- or. Although the cheerleaders being al- lowed to participate did not go over well with the students this year. I think that in the years to come it will be well accept- ed. " — Sharon Hathaway Senior members of the Varsity Football Team Rob Norton, Joe Cox, Curt Johnson, and Jeff Kintz strike back at the evil judge, Mr. Stephen, during the Homecoming pep session. After being crowned the 1986-87 Homecoming queen, senior Monica Schaefer is escorted around the gymnasium by senior Scott Weekly. The members of the 1986-87 Homecoming court and their escorts were; Senior Misty Snyder and her escort Matt Ritchie, Senior Sharon Hathaway and her escort Mark Koos, Queen Monica Schaefer and her escort Scott Weekly, junior Danielle Miller escorted by Troy Fritcha, sopho- more Kim Trahin and her escort J.R. Parent, and treshmen Cami Cox and her escort Mike Dennis. 3 Hon " € Knowing Each Other Relationships grow into lasting Memories Relationships played an important role in the developement of student ' s lives. Students depended on relation- ships to express their feelings and emo- tions, to share the good times along with the bad, and to share their dreams of tomorrow. Girls and their girlfriends seemed to share their feelings more often and more in-depth than guys did. When something happened, regardless of whether it was good or bad, girls seemed more likely to express their feelings of triumph or defeat. " I think that my girlfriends and I can share the many feelings that we have with each other through the best and worst of times, " stated junior Tracy Riffe. On the surface though, guys seemed to relate to their guy friends just as well as the girls did with their girlfriends. Guys just seemed to show less emotion in how they related to their male friends. . Opposite-sex friendships were very valuable in helping us to see a different point of view on things. Most students had a person very close to them of the opposite gender that they could con- fide in. photo by Cindy Penrod " Sometimes it is easier for me to talk to a friend that is a guy instead of my regular girlfriends. It gives me a chance to see another side of things that I would not be able to understand with my girlfriends, " commented junior Jenny Neiter. Girls shared a unique closeness that allowed them to trust each other. When a problem arose, girls usually did not find it hard to talk to a good friend about it. " There were certain things that I could talk to a girlfriend about myself or my life, that I could never talk to a guy about, " explained senior Becky Scott. Having a girlfriend or a boyfriend gave students a chance to get involved in a relationship that dealt with caring and togetherness. " Going to movies and special events is always more en- joyable when it can be shared with someone you deeply care about, " commented senior Tracy Fancher. Whether we had steady relationships or were just good friends with others we had no regrets for the good times we shared with those who became our good friends. — Shannon Reed •r % As sophomore Monica Young looks on, junior Angle Clazik points out her favorite picture in the 85-86 yearbook.

Relationships 14 W " My friends have been an important part of my high school life. We laughed and cried to- gether, and shared many experiences that we will remember long after we gradu- ate. " — Melissa Drews Guidance counselors often help students in many ways. Sophomores Kari Harter and Mi- chelle Mattes discuss a careers class project with Mr. Conkle. After lunch students often gather in the mairi commons. This circle of friends, seniors Steve Hammond, Scott Weekly, Scott Wenger and Jer- ry Grossman share the latest news on the upcom- ing Ozzy concert.

W Relationships 15 yf Learning New Cultures Foreign students helped us receive insight. New Haven High School received three foreign exchange students last year. They were Nike Palusuo from Fin- land, and Gitta Wittenbecher and Malte Hinkel from Germany. Niko was accustomed to more free- dom in school and had a hard time get- ting use to the rules of New Haven High School. " In Helsinki, I can leave the school building whenever I want without having a pass. I can go out to eat at McDonald ' s instead of eating the school ' s lunch, " said Niko. Niko found that Finland and America were much alike as far as buying things and going places. The only difference was that in Finland things were more expensive. Niko was interested in international business and medias, but he had not yet decided upon a career. Gitta stayed here only until January, unlike Niko and Malte who stayed the whole year. Gitta participated in Cross Country, which she enjoyed doing in her spare time. Gitta seemed to think that the Amer- icans were nice and more open-mind- ed than the Germans. Gitta, who spoke French, English, and German, was considering a career in languages. " I ' m not sure yet. Maybe I ' ll do something with languages — like a translator, " she said. Gitta thought the classes were easier, except the differ- ent languages made them harder. Her favorite subjects were history, English, and Gym. Malte was interested in politics, row- ing, and other sports. He wanted to play football because in Germany there were only professional football teams. He also enjoyed going to our football games and then to Pizza Hut. Having Foreign Exchange Students at New Haven High School was an educa- tional experience for them and us. We were able to learn about different countries. All in all, foreign exchange students were very impressed by the students at New Haven High School. Likewise, the students were also im- pressed by them. " I think it ' s great hav- ing foreign exchange students, because you can learn from each other, " com- mented senior Michelle Clements. — JoAnna Goldy Catchig him by surprise.

Her study hall was important because she attended many time- consuming after school activities. 3 Foreign Exchange Students 17 Fresh Faces Created A Polished Look Drama club growth combined new talents with experienced performers The play " You Can ' t Take it With You " was presented by New Haven High Shool ' s Drama Club on November 14 and 15 in the auditeria. " I really en- joyed the play. It had good humor and I was impressed with the cast, " stated ju- nior Debbie Rowland. This play was directed by teacher and drama coach, Matt Derby for his sec- ond year. " I was pleased with the show. The cast and crew worked hard and I feel everyone enjoyed the show. It seemed at times that the show would never pull together. But after a little smoke and fire, the mental aspect of the show did. (And I ' m not referring to the fireworks of flare), " commented Mr. Derby. The student director and Mr. Der- by ' s assistant was junior Angela Myers. " I did things like prompting lines, orga- nizing props and crews, and helping make things run smoothly backstage during the performances. This year was somewhat of an experiment for me. Af- ter working two years with Mr. Eller, I was accustomed to the way things were to be run, but with a new director comes new techniques. Mr. Derby was fun to work with and I really enjoyed being his assistant. I hope to do it again, " commented Ang Myers. The play was about a boy from a well- to-do business family who falls in love with a girl from an eccentric family. Each family has different perspectives on success and happiness which causes problems between them. The cast consisted of mostly juniors and seniors who have been four-year drama club members. " I felt the play came together well in the end and overall, I feel everyone was happy with the final outcome. Everyone is looking forward to the next play and hopefully it will go off just as well, " stated junior Dave Durm. — Kelley Koehlinger During a rather embarrassing moment, Alice Syc- While expressing their love for each other, Tony amore (Tracy Riffe) introduces her sweetheart Kirby (Dave Durm) and Alice Sycamore (Tracy Tony (Dave Durm), and his family, the Kirby ' s to Riffe) discuss their plans for the future to work her family, the Sycamores. things out so they can be together forever. 3| Fall Play 18 As the Sycamores (Roger Shuman and )enni Teter) and Mr. Hirling (Ryan Sturm) get ready for dinner, they are interrupted by Gay (Missy Jack- son) who has had a little too much to drink. " The play was very enjoyable because of the marvelous acting that portrayed through the charac- ters and to the audi- ence. It was an excel- lent play. " — Amy Schrader While listening to another family discussion, Es- sie Carmichaels (Kim Teter) does one of her many exercises hoping to someday become a profes- sional dancer.

" After a rough weekend in Florida during Christ- mas vacation, sophomore Jack Gerardot relaxes in a wheelchair while waiting for the next flight to Fort Wayne. It was Friday! Every NHHS student tensely anticipated the final bell. At long last the 3:05 bell rang, and swarms of students rushed to the school exits. THE WEEKEND HAD FINALLY COME!! The students of New Haven High School found that they had many dif- ferent activities to keep them busy dur- ing the weekend. For example, many students attended different sporting events or watched them on T.V. Soph- omore Bob Doehrman commented, " I look forward to basketball games and then coming home to watch wres- tling. " Pizza Hut was a popular place to hang out, socialize, and eat after ball games. Crowds of noisy teenagers bombarded the small restaurant regularly on Friday nights. Sophomore Caron Diehl stated, " I go to Pizza Hut to be with my friends and celebrate our victories! " Students kept themselves occupied in many other ways also. They danced at Rock America, went to movies, and roamed the malls. Other favorite pas- times were shopping, dating, sleeping in, and going crazy with friends. Even though fun times dominated the weekends, students had to attend to unpleasant chores also. Parents forced their offspring to do household tasks and lawn work. Some students took jobs to earn their spending mon- ey. Senior Brad Osborn, who worked for the New Haven Park Board and for Osborn Painting, Inc., said, " The reason I work is so I can save money for col- lege. " While some students hated absolute- ly nothing about their weekends, oth- ers found fault with them. Sophomore Mike Riehm commented, " I hate hav- ing to worry about going to school on Monday. That way, I can have fun dur- ing the weekend. " Junior Wade Fromhoit summed up most people ' s feelings by declaring, " What I hate about the weekend is that it ' s only two days long!

Going to the lake was a favorite activity of many students. After five grueling days, the weekend is more than welcome two days of rest from school. It ' s a chance to get away from the pressures of school, and to have fun with friends, and forget, for two days, the teachers, homework, and tests. — Debbie Pucher Weekends are a good time for friends to get together.

They were cheaper then Florida and this year the Bahamas provided much better weath- er than Florida. " I had a great time in Nassau Bahamas, " stated senior Dave Drake, " The weather was excellent, and I was able to gamble away my mon- ey at the casino. I am definitely going back next year. " A lot of time and effort went into planning spring break. It was a time to get away from all the worries and trou- bles a person had. Even though it only lasted a week, the short vacation was enough to encourage us to hang in there uniti summer. Having a good time is one of the most important things in life. Many high school activities provided memo- ries of good times that last forever. One of the most iooked-forward to times during the school year was spring break. Going south was one event many stu- dents saved their money for through- out the year. Although it was not sunny all the time, the people who went had a fantastic time. " The trip to the border state of Mexico was very exciting though the weather would not relieve for a sunny day. " stated junior Kelly Martin. Every Spring Break, students told about the long-awaited trip to Florida, — Cheryl Beck Marco Island was one of the various spots that seniors visited during spring Break.

The evening started as couples went o some of their favorite hang-outs uch as McDonalds, Pizza Hut, and Rax. fter dinner, the couples went to the High School Gymnasium where the :arnival began. The carnival consisted )f various organizations and clubs that had different booths where students had the chance to win prizes and par- ticipate in the fun. Then it was time for the square dancing to begin. As cou- ples formed their squares, the band " Gold Rush " prepared for their first song. When the dancing was over, it was time to announce the traditional Li ' l Abner and Daisy Mae. They were senior Cathy McQueen and graduate Matt Nahrwald. Finally, the marriage ceremony took place. While the girls got their marriage certificates, the guys tried to hide the best they could. Then after seconds of searching the girls found their hubbies and everyone sat down to exchange rings. " Sadie Hawkins was lot of fun. It was nice to be the one to choose the res- taurant and let the girl pay for the eve- ning, " commented Steve Ladig. The evening ended with a few more dances and the fun and excitement continued throughout the night. — Kelley Koehlinger While taking part in the traditional marriage cer- emony, Malte Henkel, Kelly Hoffman, Kim Emer- ick, Jill and Kurt Esterline, and others are shown exchanging rings. 3 Sadie Hawkins 24 4(l J After getting their pictures taken, Reid Wise and Mary Shrock watch Gary Fox and Leroy Pierce, who are in charge of the picture booth, and pa- tiently wait for the results.

Right when Evil Eye Fleagle put the whammy on, he took a silver tray and transfered it on to General Bullmoose. Back at Dogpatch, Earthquake backed down and let Li ' l Abner marry Daisy Mae.

Spring Play 27 C Special Holidays and Special Friends Vacation time is party time for New Haven students Cod made holidays for New Haven students. Many holidays throughout the school year provided much-need- ed breaks for students. Holidays during the summer added those extra special events, such as the Fourth of July and Memorial Day. Traditional activities for the Fourth of July included going to the annual fireworks at the Coliseum, or maybe going to the lake. Although the holidays during the summer allowed al- most everyone to take off work, the holidays during the school year were more appreciated because of the time off from school. The most awaited-for break of the year had to be Christmas vacation. Two weeks of freedom helped ease the pain Although a large part of the Christmas spirit is giving, senior Melissa Davis shows that receiving is almost just as fun as senior Melissa Drews waits for her turn. On Valentine ' s Day, junior Kim Drummer takes on the big job of delivering balloons and flowers to the students. Holidays are the busiest days of the year for office service workers. pholo by krain Vondran of knowing that we still had another semester to go. Students participated in many activities with the families over break. Sometimes this was not exactly the most enjoyable part of vacation. " I had to put up with old people go- ing on and on about how we were growing up so fast, and how big we were getting. But overall, it was alright since I haven ' t seen some of my rela- tives for so long, " commented junior Deb Stoller. Even though much of Christmas break was spent with the family. New Year ' s Eve was the time to celebrate with friends. The days of babysitting were over for most New Haven stu- dents. Other holidays during the school year did not provide days off from school, but students still had fun with them. Halloween, Valentine ' s Day, and St. Patrick ' s Day all added a bit of zest to the normal everyday routine of school. Although not all holidays were vaca- tion days, most students enjoyed them because they were something different and out of the ordinary. " I love holidays because I get to see people I haven ' t seen in such a long time. It ' s also great to get friends to- gether and really party, " stated senior Gretta Childress. — Michelle Geller pholo by Michelle Clements Halloween just happened to fall on the day tha was designated to be Senior Blow-Off Day.

Holidays 29 € Juniors Take On Prom Preparation for Prom ' 87 opened new responsibilities and challenges to juniors ONE FINANCIAL SERVICE The results of all the prom prepara- tions adds were greatly appreciated by the couples who attended the prom, but few knew of the hard work and dedication that went into it. Fundraisers were already being held during the Class of ' 88 ' s sophomore year, and the class also sold magazines the following year to raise the money that was needed. At the beginning of last year, the class officers had meetings to organize committees, which did dif- ferent jobs, and to select committee chairpeople. Every Thursday, the class officers and committee chairpeople met to consid- er future plans and confirm plans al- ready made. The juniors worked hard up to the very end, until the final meet- ing at the Downtown Holiday Inn on the big day to decorate. As Missie Dager, treasurer of the junior class said, " We didn ' t know how it was going to turn out until that night. " The preparations for prom didn ' t " stop with planning, selling, and deco- rating done by the juniors. The individ- uals attending Prom prepared in their own ways. Months before April 25, girls began shopping for the perfect dress and matching accessories. Guys picked up their tuxes and made plans for after prom. On April 25, the day of the prom, pains were taken by girls and guys alike to look their very best. Sophomore Lynn Brooks commented, " I started getting ready at two-thirty, and when Mike came at five o ' clock, I wasn ' t even dressed yet. " Some things didn ' t run as smoothly as had been hoped, admitted junior Kim Balogh, co-chairperson of the tick- et committee. " In preparation for prom, if more students had volun- teered and attended committee meet- ings, we could have had more help in deciding on the plans for decorations, glasses, napkins, etc. " However, most felt the preparation, planning and wor- rying that went into Prom ' 87 was well worth it. — Kaylene Riemen Decorations add to the atmosphere of prom.

Ju- nior Tammie Love and her mother, Mrs. Love, help out on the morning of prom by arranging decorations along the halls of the Holiday Inn. 3 Prom Preparation 31 w Couples Celebrate Love Those who attended Prom ' 87 will always cherish the wonderful memories of that special night Prom ' 87 — it was a night of ro- mance, a night for " celebrating love. " The fairy tale-like attire, the elegant in- terior of the Downtown Holiday Inn, slow dancing, and the beautiful decora- tions will always be impressed in the memories of those who attended. " The memories of Prom ' 87 will always be special to me, " commented sopho- more Melissa Etsler. One of the main highlights of the night was the coronation of the king and queen. The members of the Junior Court, who were selected by the junior class, were Angle Murua escorted by Don Rhoades, Danielle Miller escorted by Brent Gillenwater, Deb Stoller es- corted by Troy Fritcha, Heather Clark escorted by Brian Jacquay, Kris Danner escorted by Rob Moyer, and Nicole Miller escorted by Brian Miller. Also, the senior attendants included Jenny Meier escorted by Curt Johnson, Kim Emerick escorted by Mark Koos, and .Melissa Davis escorted by Matt Zur- buch. At 10:30 P.M., after the votes had been tallied and as the excitement mounted, it was announced that the King and Queen of Prom ' 87 were Troy Fritcha and Danielle Miller. When asked how she felt about becoming queen, Danielle replied, " it was an honor and a surprise. " As the night faded and the early morning hours arrived, prom and activ- ities that had been planned for after- wards began. Due to lack of interest, the after-prom sponsored by the junior class was cancelled. However, most did not mind this. " I don ' t think having the after-prom omitted affected very many people. Most people don ' t go to the after-prom anyway; they usually go somewhere, or do something together the next day, " stated junior Michelle Hoover. Prom ' 87 was definitely a night packed with wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. Senior Becky Keeler summarized the evening in this way: " This year ' s Prom was EXCELLENT! " — Kaylene Riemen » The Downtown Holiday Inn provided a great dance floor in contrast to the crowded Embassy Theatre of Prom ' 86. Most agreed that the Holi- day Inn was a good choice for the location of prom. 32 C Prom is also a time for friends to get together and share the special occasion. Seniors Chris Barrien- tos, Beth Waltenburg, Michele Cambrel, and her date enjoy the evening. " This year ' s prom was much better than the prom in the two previous years. Every- one looked really nice, and the decora- tions looked spectac- ular! The atmosphere created a really great evening. " — Michelle Hoover The crowning of the king and queen is one of the highlights of any prom. Junior Danielle Miller gasps with surprise and excitement as senior Sharon Hathaway crowns her Queen of Prom ' 87. A record number of 181 couples attended Prom ' 87. One of these couples, junior Jon Dize and his date, take a break from dancing and talk quietly about the night ' s events. Being elected Queen and King of Prom ' 87 was an honor for juniors Danielle Miller and Troy Fritcha. As the theme song " Tonight I Celebrate My Love " plays, the newly crowned couple shares a dance. Prom 33 C Showtime Happenings Comes To An End Students Made The Most Of Their Last Talent Show Before Mr. Henke Retired The lights dimmed, the audience hushed, and all eyes focused upon the dimly lit stage. Showtime Happenings ' 87 had begun for perhaps the last time. Mr. Charles Henke, after 15 years of directing Showtime Happenings, re- tired from his teaching career last year. " Not directing a show like ' Happen- ings ' means that some kids in the school do not get the chance to get in front of an audience. That is unfortu- nate, " commented Mr. Henke. Students who took part in Happen- Making people laugh was one of the major goals of the Happenings ' 87 performers. Seniors Shan- non Reed, John Fedele, and Chris Barrientos do a " tweener " that most of the audience seemed to appreciate. ti As senior John Fedele waits for his cue, he pre- pares to do the " one-man wave.

The show opened with a dance per- formed by the Jazz Company. Senior Janet Augenstein and some of her friends did their own version of " Two of Hearts " called " Two Pop Tarts " . Seniors took a big part of Showtime Happenings ' 87 with the " Memories " skit, the Senior Skit, and the in-be- tween skits done between each act. " I thought the Senior Skit was the best I ' ve ever seen, and I ' ve been going for about three or four years, " said freshman Brett Lee. When the curtain came down for the last time at Showtime Happenings ' 87, most students who went felt it was an excellent showing of New Haven ' s tal- ents, yet felt sad to see such an enjoyed event come to an end. — Michelle Geller Rapping to the music of " I Heard it Through the Grapevine, " the senior Rasinetles strut their shriveled bodies to New Haven ' s theme song at Showtime Happenings ' 87. " Happenings was the time for seniors to get together and get crazy. We all had such a great time do- ing the Senior Skit, and the audience had fun watching it. It is something I ' ll always remember and will laugh about. — John Kanable The highlight of Happenings ' 87 was the final act, the Senior Skit. Members of the senior class play the game " Hollywood Squares " as they play the characters of several teachers. Happenings 35 A Day of Recognition Many Seniors Were Awarded As another year went by, another class was awarded for their outstanding accompMshments during the high school years. Senior Awards Day recognized those students who excelled in certain areas that they enjoyed participating in. Some awards were presented to stu- dents based upon their mental attitude and spirit rather than academic or ath- letic abilities. One such award was the " I Dare You " award. This award recog- nized the mental attitude and sports- manship the student portrayed. Melissa Davis and Sharon Hathaway received this award. Other awards were the outstanding artist, male and female athlete, and the Drama Award. The outstanding artist went to Holly Craig. The male and fe- male athletes were Rob Norton and Melissa Davis. Kim Teter received the Drama Award. " 1 was really only ex- pecting the Drama Award since I ' ve been in it for four years. It completely surprised me when I received four oth- er awards. I feel very honored to have won such prestigious awards, " com- mented Senior Kim Teter. The Paul Goeglein Award is given to a student and a teacher for outstanding leadership. The winners of this award were Mr. Charles Henke and Sharon Hathaway. Two retiring teachers were Mr. Charles Henke and Miss Pat Mullins. Valedictorian, Matt Ritchie and salu- tatorian, Todd Evans were also recog- nized. Not everyone could earn a plaque or a special award, but because the class of ' 87 had made it through four years of high school they were all winners. — Laurie Dawson Receiving the " I Dare You " award, Melissa Davis smiles with enthusiasm.

The Seniors of 1987 gathered on May 26th, 1987 for the final time to be to- gether at Goeglein ' s Reserve, and cele- bration lingered in the air. Seniors knew it was the last time they would be together before graduation, the last chance to be with those friends who had made high school so special. The Senior Dinner Dance evening was a race against time. The seniors knew that this would be the night that stuck in their minds forever, so they frantical- ly tried to make it the best it could possibly be. After a dinner of steak or chicken, the senior class awards were presented. The seniors enjoyed the awards, as they were all in fun. With the conclusion of the awards came time for the band " Hush. " Seniors got wild and danced to the music. Everyone let loose — even the quietest members of the class of ' 87. The night passed quickly though, as song after song was played. Some left early to begin their graduation celebra- tions, but most seniors stayed until the end of the evening. No matter how students felt when they entered, they left happy, feeling that they had made long-lasting memo- ries. The Seniors of 1987 would treasure these memories always of their last dance with the people who had been their friends for most of their lives. — Michelle Geller Seniors Gina Murua, Michelle Clements, and Tina Languell rock to the tunes of " Hush.

Leading the graduating Class of 1987 were Matt Ritchie, valedictorian, and Todd Evans, salutatorian. They marched into the gymnasium to the traditional graduation music of " Pomp and Circumstance. " Michele Cambrel sang " America, The Beautiful. " After the seniors entered the gym, the invocation was given by Pastor Timothy Sims. Matt Ritchie then gave his words of wisdom, and bid the Class of 1987 farewell. Mr. Charles Henke directed his choir at graduation for the last time of his teaching career. The choir sang two songs, " How Do We Say Goodbye? " and " For Just A Moment " , which caught the emotions of many seniors. The time came for the commence- ment speaker, Mrs. Annette Campbell. After having had many of the seniors at one time or another in class, she was able to become very close to several members of the senior class. Her speech touched the hearts of many as she shared what she would miss about the class ' s members. After the concert band performed " Chesford Portrait " , speeches were heard from Todd Evans and Mr. Dela- grange. Then came time for the pre- sentation of the diplomas. As soon as all of the seniors had their diplomas in hand, Kim Teter lead the turning of the tassles, which signified that their high school years were over, and their adult lives had just begun. Although many tears were shed, the graduates were happy. They had just reached the goal that took 12 years to achieve. Even though the temperature inside was well over 90 degrees, the ceremony was special to the Class of 1987, and they would hold close to their hearts the memory of that day, Thursday, May 28, 1987, for the rest of their lives. — Michelle Geller The Class of 1987 valedictorian Matt Ritchie ex- presses his thoughts on moving on to a different chapter in life.

W Graduation 41 w Final Chapter Arrived For Seniors Graduation meant more than Just a ceremony to the Class of 1987 Graduation . . . Just the word brought a strange feeling to each of the 255 seniors of the Class of 1987. Graduation was more than a ceremo- ny to the senior class. It was a mixed feeling, one of both joy and sorrow. The joy of knowing they were on the verge of becoming adults, and the sor- row of leaving all the special friend- ships that were formed through the 12 years of schooling and growing up. Academic learning was not the only learning that took place during the se- niors ' four years of high school. Learn- ing from each other was what most se- niors remembered the most. The Class of 1987 taught each other the values and importance of friendship, caring, laughter, and love for one another. Whatever barriers existed between the members of the seniors of ' 87 were broken down during the most impor- tant two hours of their lives. They looked at each other with admiration, knowing that at the end of the ceremo- ny, their high school years would be over. The Class of 1987 ' s high school years shaped them into the people that New Haven High School would give to the world. Even though the Class of 1987 would divide, go their separate paths and be- gin completely new lives, the memo- ries and experiences that each senior had of their years spent at New Haven would live on in their hearts and minds forever. — Michelle Geller Commencement speaker Annette Campbell touched the lives of many seniors with her kind- ness and sense of humor. Here she addresses the senior class with her treasured words of wisdom. Mr. Charles Henke performs with the concert choir for the final time.

Graduates Becky Keeler and Kevin Berning share a moment together after the ceremony. Emo- tions w ere mixed as the graduates congratulated each other in the hall. Graduation was both a sad and happy moment. Graduates Sean Minnick, Jeff Grabill, Curt John- son, Tony Crabill, Jeff Kintz, and Matt Zurbuch show that the celebration has just begun.

Certain special events such as candy or perfume sales, special dinners and banquets and many awards were for the club . . , EMBERS ONLY An ever popular problem for NHHS students was what to do afterl school. This is where the extra-curricular activities came in. Instead ofl going directly home to do homework for another hour or two, many students participated in club activities. I Organizations like the drama club or the foreign language clubs not only offered a break from a monotonous day, but they also gave students a chance to meet new people and to simply have an enjoyable, relaxing time. This socializing helped students to develop their abilities to communicate with others. Most would admit that many school activities would have been impossible without the commit- ment of students in clubs like Student Council and Senior Council. Members of these clubs found that being involved helped to develop positive leadership skills. Students knew that the existence of organiza- tions depended upon their participation and ded- ication. This attitude is what created a strong ex- tra-curricular program at NHHS. Some students spent hours working on a certain activity for a club, like building a float or preparing a booth for Sadie Hawkins. Like each person in the school, each organization was different. This uniqueness is what kept many students involved in several organizations. The more students got in- volved, the more they knew about themselves, and the more other people knew about them.

Kim has been in speech and debate for two years and last year she made it to region- al. It was 6:30 A.M. as speech and debate students anx- iously loaded onto the bus to arrive at their meet. To be in a meet, students had to par- ticipate in three rounds of competition. The competition was based on a point system. The highest degree distinction was worth 250 pts. and was called National Florensic League. Students who re- ceived this degree were Kim Teter, Dave Durm, and Gary Hahn. Other top scorers were Mark Koos, Stephanie Lewis, Jenni Volz, Jenny Teter, and Adrian Polit. " In the past two years, I have been a sectional and regional qualifier and this year I ' m hoping to make it to state in radio broadcast- ing, " stated Senior Kim Teter. Last year ' s new addition to the speech and debate team was Coach John Wilson. Having been used to the way Mr. Eller ran things last year, it took time to get adjusted. " I feel the addition of our new coach, Mr. Wilson, has greatly increased, not only the interest in the team, but the caliber of its members, " stated Junior Dave Durm.

Debate was usually stereo- typed as those students who enjoyed arguing over a cer- tain topic. In debate, stu- dents were given a subject from eight different bills, whichever was chosen for them, and they had to give a speech on the pros and cons of their subject. Usually the topics were centered around national affairs. These events included Lin- coln-Douglous, and Con- gress. The skills acquired by par- ticipating in speech and de- bate were an essential part of the learning process. These skills not only helped in high school, but would also help later on in life. — Kelley Koehlinger .

The band experienced many changes throughout the 1986-87 school year. One of the major changes was having a new band di- rector, Mr. Mark Best. " The band was really bum- med out at the beginning of the year, but later cleaned up their act and showed a lot of enthusiasm, " said Mr. Best. The change in the band member ' s attitudes was brought about after the stu- dents got to know Mr. Best. He was well liked by most of the membrs. " Mr. Best was very well organized and taught the band discipline, " stated ju- nior Deb Kirkpatrick. The band ' s season started off with band camp. They at- tended camp Potawotami for four days, practicing and marching eight to ten hours each day. For the first time ever the band was able to learn an entire show at cam.D. After long hours of practicing the show, they were able to have it ready for the first football game.

This was done to maximize the effect on the football field and basketball court. Overall this change seemed effec- tive. " I feel the corp adapted to this change very well, " stat- ed Becky Keeler, the captain of the Highlights. The New Haven Marching Band showed their stuff in the competitions they par- ticipated in. The band placed second at Whitkols " Symphony of Sound. " They also received a first at the Northrop ISSMA District Marching Band Competi- tion. This first place moved them on to the regional competition held in Koko- mo. The band missed a first place at regional competi- tion for their division by only four tenths of a point. The band had to adjust to a new band director, a major switch in organization of the Highlights and Lancers, and the discipline procedure. Fortunately, these changes were effective and resulted in a successful year for them. — Roger Shuman — Kim Trahin 3 Band 49 C shortly before the Homecoming parade, seniors Denise Gratz, Kim Emerick and Kelly Hoffman prepare tfie float for New Haven ' s Students Against Drunk Driving Chapter.

The Fellowship of Christian Athletes met twice a month and discussed Christian oriented topics such as problems they faced in every day life. The meet- ings weren ' t only discussion times, but also times that friends could spend togeth- er and have fun. Not only did the members j meet twice a month, but they also held various fun- ! draisers for their group. They held bake sales, car- washes, an All-Night Sport- sathon, and sold ads for the basketball programs. This money was mainly used to send of their members to camp.

Coach Sipe explains, " Each week, a team would bowl 3 games against another team. Each game counted 1 point and total pins counted 1 point. " At the end of the season, the team with the most points was the team consisting of Jeff Sipe, Shan- non Becker, and Darrin Mc- Cormick. There were no tryouts to be a member of the team, which was a big reason it at- tracted so many people. " ! joined the Bowling League hoping it would im- prove my scores on my weekend bowling league, " stated sophomore Gary Hol- man.

Campus Life Bowling 63 H Honor S iety HerqttI Achievers Work For Success Having fun while working tiard pays off for ttie students on thie fierald staff and honor society Achieving goals was an im- portant part of many clubs. Many students reached these goals excelling in their own areas. Some students excelled on the Herald staff by producing a high quality newspaper, while others ex- celled scholastically and en- joyed being a member of the Honor Society. After a rough first semes- ter filled with financial strug- gles and some staff organiza- tion problems, the Herald staff pulled together to achieve their goal of improv- ing the quality of the school newspaper. The staff overcame these problems even with a group of fourteen first year writers. This newness only enhanced the paper to make it one full of fresh new ideas and many changes that led to a well written and organized school paper. " Having a lot of first year students helped us have a good staff with several wild new ideas, " Stated Co-editor Kim Teter. The Herald staff worked hard to produce an issue ev- ery two weeks. This dedica- tion by the staff led to many interesting editions of the Herald. " I liked working on the Herald staff because it was really fun writing a story that you knew would be read by Being in Honor Soci- ety was a goal of mine and obtaining this made me realize that all the studying finally paid off. ▲ — Brian Ferguson the whole school. " Com- mented staff writer, Tracey Riffe. The New Haven Honor Society inducted eight se- niors on November 12, 1986. These seniors must have maintained at least an 8.5 grade point average and be a citizen in good standing dur- ing their four years of high school. Those students in the Honor Society achieved an honor that they could use as a tool for applying to col- leges and jobs. Achieving this meant many hard hours of studying, often several nights a week. During all of this studying, several of the Honor Society members found time to ex- cell in sports. Senior Mike Sell com- mented, " I was involved in cross country which meant staying after school for many hours of practice, while still being expected to do well in academics. There were a lot of times when I had to stay up late for a test, but it all paid off in better grades. " Students worked hard in different ways, yet they achieved the same feeling of success. Through organiza- tions like the Herald and striving for Honor Society students reached their goals and moved on to make new ones. — Kim Trahin — Shannon Reed 3 64 Honor Society Senior staff member of the Herald, Becky Keeler, is instructed by Miss Pochodzay on the finer points of lay-out design and copy writing, which are major responsibilities of staff members Revising and correcting copy is an important part of producing the Herald.

Talent, determination, and spirit led the Bulldogs to a winning sports season. The fall sports knew how to start the year right with boys ' cross country placing third in sectionals. Winter sports, despite the cold, were warmed up and ready for the competition when their season began. As the girls ' basketball team won another sectional, the wrestling team won their sectional for the first time in seventeen years. Wrestler Reid Wise advanced to State, and gym- nist Jill Bard advanced to Regionals proving once again that the Bulldogs know what it takes to be winners. Spring sports added life to the end of the year with a new addition to the sports ' curriculum, girls ' Softball. Coaches Mrs. Yoder and Miss Weimer led the team with a winning record of 11-2 at the start of the season while Mr. Bischoff ' s baseball team opened with victories against fifth-ranked Dekalb, and Huntington North. Girls ' tennis and boys ' golf experi- enced a change in the coaching staff while track continued to provide tough competition for its competitors. Needless to say athletics was very important to the students at NHHS. Whether they were participants or spectators, their Bulldog pride was great!

Captain Rob Norton " We had the potential to be a team, but at times we didn ' t work togeth- er as a team and that led to many losses, " stated Rob Norton. The ' 86 football season presented New Haven ' s football team with many sur- prises. The varsity team, for the past few years, had been well known for their tough, hard attitude and play. Last season was no different although their 2-8 record didn ' t show it. They lived up to their rep- utation, of a strong offensive attack which helped the Bulldogs stay alive in crucial situations. " Inspite of the difficulties winning during the season, the team im- proved and played its best games at the end of the sea- son, " stated Coach Kirkton. The most improved team member for the varsity squad was Don Rhodes and the well earned Mental Atti- tude Award went to Brad Osborn. The most valuable players were full back John Kanable and lineman Tony Crabill. Although the record shows that the 1986 Varsity Football Team had a disap- pointing season, many of the emotions expressed were those of a winning team that tried their best, and was proud of their efforts. — Kelly Martin 3I Football 68 Varsity — Front Row: S.

They fin- ished with an overall record of 21-9 and also won the New Haven Invitational and placed in both the Heritage and Harding invitationals as runners-up. The season did not start off well. They lost their first game to Concordia with a score of 15-11, But they came back with a win against Bishop Luers. Some of the highlights during the season according to Coach Dennis Johnson were: " Victories over some highly rated teams, also vic- tories over three state ranked teams Snider, Wayne, Indianapolis Char- tard. " Team records as well as in- dividual records were bro- ken. For the team the school record for the most wins in a season was broken with 21 wins.

Excessive running and weight lifting helped the players get into shape for the long season. Strenuous prac- tices consisted of stress put on defensive play and serv- ing. Although the determina- tion was there, lady luck rarely played into the girl ' s hands. Their 2-8 record was not as good as they had hoped, but one of their big- gest victories was against Homestead in the last game of the season. It was a de- serving victory to end a los- ing season.

Early in July, while most high school students were enjoying their summer at the lake or lounging around the house, the Cross Country Team began preparing for the upcoming season. Exten- sive workouts consisted of distant runs. Interval work- outs, mile repeats, and speed work occupied each runner for the rest of the summer. Before the season began, the team set many goals; some of which were to win the Heritage conditioner, NEIAC, sectionals, and reach semi-state. Although the goals were not met, they gave their all, and made last year ' s team better than the past five years. " As a team I feel that we had a successful season even though we didn ' t reach our early season goal of going to semi-state, " stated senior Jeff Shoemaker. September 6 was an ago- nizing day for New Haven as they earned a runner-up in the Heritage conditioner. There, the team set a new school record of 94:49. The team consisted of Kevin Berning, Sean Hosfield, Paul Roberts, Mike Sell, Jeff Shoemaker, and Tim Wilson. They finished third out of eleven at sectionals, and from there they went on to regionals, finishing in sixth place. Leading the team last year were senior Jeff Shoemaker, and Sean Hosfield. Jeff Shoe- maker and Sean Hosfield also made first team " ALL NEIAC " . " I felt very proud when I ran my new P.R., 5th place finish, and made 1st team all- conference. We were very disappointed when we did not win this season ' s NEIAC cross country championship, but we can live with a sec- ond place, " stated sopho- more Sean Hosfield. " I ' m very proud of our team. This year we were led by a group of five seniors (Berning, Rasmuessan, Sell, Shoemaker, and Wilson). The total record for the year was 84-25. The combined score for the past two years, (which consisted of the same group) was 175-52. That ' s In- credible, " stated boy ' s cross country coach Bill Hartman. — Dave Drake Captain Kevin Berning " Even though we did not meet all of our goals, we had a successful season. I ' ve really enjoyed being a part of this senior group of runners. We have run together for a long time. " Take your mark, get set, go. These familiar words are heard over and over by the cross country team members at every meet. 3r Boy ' s Cross Country 71 W Lady Bulldogs Gain Confidence Girls cross country team improve over past seasons Captain " With the help of young and new talent acquired from the under- classmen, we had our best season ever. " The girl ' s cross country team had an outstanding 1986 running season. The team had a few highlights and accomplishments that improved them over previ- ous seasons. One highlight of the year was having a runner break into the sixteen-minute bracket. Michelle Friend ac- complished this with a time of 16.49. " At the beginning of the year, we were supposed to set a goal for ourselves. My goal was to get into the six- teen-minute range. We had a lot of hard practices which helped me reach my goal, " stated Michelle. A second highlight was placing well at the West No- ble Invitational. Placing in the top half of the middle of the rankings and competing with positive attitudes were set goals and successfully ac- complished. During the regular season the team ended with forty wins and sixty-three losses. During the NEIAC, New Ha- ven placed fifth and at the sectional, New Haven placed eleventh. The girls cross country coach, Mrs. Games, predict- ed a stronger and more competitive team for the up- coming running season. Even though seventy-five percent of the team mem- bers are upperclassmen, the underclassmen really out- shined them. All of those who received an award were underclassmen. The winner of the most valuable team member was Michelle Friend. The most improved award went to Kristie Hoar. Amy Alder received the best mental attitude award. There were various im- provements in the 1986 team. " One was the com- mittment among the team members. Another was the drive to be more competi- tive. The stronger points for the team were that the un- derclassmen were not in- timidated by the other teams they competed against, " commented Carnes.

They were also the most vaulable team mem- bers. Tim Gerke and Mike Riehm played second dou- bles for New Haven. One of the highlights of the tennis team was that they won twice as many matches as last season. The most improved player on the tennis team was Mike Horney, while Todd Evans received the award for best mental attitude.

Although the team did not reach it ' s goal to have a 500 or better season, Coach Hoffer was very optimistic about the future. Six juniors and three sophomores gained valuable experience for next year ' s team. " The future of our pro- gram looks very good. The only way that we can move forward and accomplish the goals we have set is to work very hard during the off sea- son. I ' m looking forward to next year, " stated Coach Hoffer. One disappointment the ' Dogs faced was the injury of jonathon Jordan halfway through the season. Jordan was injured during the South Adams game, after scoring sixteen points. He was out for the rest of the season due to torn ligaments in his knee. " It was very disappointing to not be able to play my last year. I was looking forward to doing well, but got hurt and couldn ' t perform to my full potential, " John said. The ' Dogs averaged 31 re- bounds per game. Lane Bil- lingsley was the leading re- bounder and the most valauble player. The most improved team members were John Stewart and Rob Moyer. Dave Doster, a soph- omore, received the best mental attitude award. The leader in assists was sopho- more Troy Hoffer, whom ac- complished eight assists against Angola. Senior Lane Billingsley received First Team All-Conference stand- ings and junior Troy Fritcha received Second Team All- Conference.

Mr. Kilmer was an excellent coach who helped our team reach it ' s full potential. The Freshmen and Junior Varsity boy ' s basketball teams shared successful sea- sons. Not only did they have a winning season, but they also gained valuable experi- ence. The Freshmen ' Dogs were coached by Scott Kilmer. They reached their goal of winning 50 percent of their games with an 11 win, 8 loss record. " The team ' s serious atti- tude toward the game and their willingness to hustle were the key elements in the success of this season, " stat- ed Coach Kilmer. Ryan Vincenski and Jim Wissman were considered the most valuable players, while Lee Poppy was the most improved member of the freshmen team. The best mental attitude award went to Ray Peters. The Junior Varsity team was coached by Kent Fishel. They had an exceptional sea- son with 15 wins, and 5 losses. They also tied for first place in Conference stand- ings. The best mental attitude award went to Mike De- Camp and Brian Miller. John Stewart and Brian Miller were the most improved team members. Coach Fishel feels that the most valuable player award went to the whole team. " This was a team effort for the successful season. Differ- ent players were outstanding in different games, " he said. Coach Fishel also feels that his team has made improve- ments in the execution of plays, team work, and per- sonal attitudes. The strength of last year ' s Junior Varsity team should lead to a suc- cessful Varsity squad.

" At the beginning of the ' 86- ' 87 season the girl ' s varsi- ty basketball team was ranked 13th in the state. De- spite their ranking, the team got off to a very bumpy start. The up and down season payed off in the end when the team accomplished one big goal by winning the sec- tional title for the second consecutive year. " Last year after we won the 1st section- al ever it was great, but to win two years in a row was something else, " comment- ed Becky Haus. One other accomplish- ment for the varsity team was placing third in confer- ence. This was the best finish NHHS has ever boasted. " As the year progressed we be- came more patient on of- fense, passed the ball better, and kept our poise more, " stated Coach Romary. Free throw shooting was one of the strong points for the team. The basketball team had a 63% average from the free throw line. The captains of the girl ' s varsity basketball team were senior Michelle Clements and junior Becky Haus. Along with being captain Becky was voted as most valuable team member. The most improved award went to Stacy Stevrak who also made the 2nd team all-con- ference. Other all-confer- ence members were Becky Haus and Deb Norton. Haus and Norton were voted to the 1st team. All five starters will be re- turning next season with the loss of only two seniors. " I am hopeful that we can start up where we left off. We won six in a row at the end of the season, primarily due to solid defense. If this contin- ues, we should have a good season next year, " com- mented Coach Romary. — Kelly Berning Juniors Becky Haus, Deb Norton, Stacy Stverak, and Carrie Wetter lis- ten to Coach Romary ' s last minute instructions during a time out.

Early season goals were accomplished through hard work " Although we had a 6-11 record and the season was not a winning one, we met many of our goals. " Despite their record of 6- 11, the junior varsity team accomplished many goals they had set early in the season. In addition to their achieved goals, the team also had other highlights. One of the highlights of the junior varsity basketball team was winning the game against South Adams. They won 35- 30 after being down by ten points with three minutes left in the game. Another highlight was having no inju- ries for the season. One of the goals set prior to the season, which was to score an average of 25 points per game, was accomplished by ending the season with a 25.8 average. Another goal was to have seven steals per game. When the season con- cluded, the junior varsity team had an average of elev- en steals per game. " Our de- fense improved during the last one-third of the season, " stated Coach Weimer. The captains of the JV team were juniors Angle Hoar and Angle Dimit. " The JV squad played a hard-fought season. Some of our games didn ' t go as we thought they should, but sometimes it was really hard to find five girls who were playing good defense and offense. Most people said the JV team would not win many games. Our record 6- 11 showed are losses, but our pride, effort, and spunk showed our wins, " stated Angl e Dimit. Tne freshmen team on the other hand had no captains. Team unity and the support of each otner; consequently made them play well togeth- er as a team. Records were set in total points, steals, and assists for the freshmen team. The freshmen team ended their season with a 7- 7 record.

A new coach was wel- comed by the wrestlers to begin their new season. Coa- ch Bill Kerbel brought many new ideas and expectations to the team. Not only did he develop their attitudes, but he stressed working on hard, physical condition. " Our new coach has taught us new calisthenics and drills. We do much more conditioning compared to last year, " stat- ed junior Reid Wise. On every team, there are special and outstanding play- ers who give their all and ask for nothing in return. Junior Reid Wise fit that descrip- tion. Through the season, he had 27 victories and he placed 1st in the Woodian, New Haven, N.E.I.A.C. Con- ference, I.H.S.A.A. Sectional, I.H.S.A.A. Regional, I.H. S.A.A. Semi-State Tourna- ments, and he qualified for the state tournament. He won awards for the most valuable team member, best mental attitude, conference, regional, and sectional champion, and was voted honorary captain. He had 21 pins for the season, breaking the previous record for 16 pins. Senior Tim Wilson had a 26-5 season record and placed 1st in the I.H.S.A.A. Sectional Tournament and 3rd place in the I.H.S.A.A. Regional Tournament. He shared the sectional champi- onship with Reid Wise and also made the Conference 2nd team along with senior jerry Grossman. Junior Ray Colglazier and freshman David Biberstein were voted most improved wrestlers. On January 31, the wres- tling team brought to New Haven their first sectional win since 1970. Wrestlers that placed for the Bulldogs were senior Curt Johnson, who placed 4th; freshmen David Biberstein and Trey Holcomb, juniors Tim St. Pe- ters and Ray Colglazier placed 3rd; sophomore Tim Rohyans, juniors Scott Hambleton, John Nolt, Gary Fox and seniors Jerry Gross- man placed 2nd; and junior Reid Wise and senior Tim Wilson placed 1st. Looking toward the fu- ture. Coach Kerbel felt that the ' 87- ' 88 season had a bright outlook. " We will have 10 lettermen back. We should have a good team with all that experience re- turning, " he commented. He also felt that Reid Wise, Trey Holcomb, Tim Ro- hyans, Tim St. Peters, David Biberstein, Scott Hambleton, Bob Marucci, John Nolt, and Gary Fox and Ray Colglazier will be strong portions of the team. Although their 7-8 record was good, their team mem- bers were outstanding. With their new coach and young, yet talented athletes, the fu- ture of the Bulldog wrestling team looked promising.

D Stephanie P " Cratz photo by Mike M Nea " I ' ve enjoyed being In Gymnastics throughout high school. I will al- ways remember the meets and the friends I ' ve made. " " This is one of the best gymnastics teams New Ha- ven has had. We scored very well in several meets. This years team seemed to work more as a group than previ- ous years teams. " stated Sen- ior Stephanie Gratz. The season for the girls gymnastics team started out with many hours of aerobic work-outs along with lifting weights and running. When the season started the girls did not even t ouch the gymnastics equipment. They spent their time on conditioning so they would be in shape for the long practices. These practices improve the performance that is required to be a good gymnast. Once the season was in full operation the practices would last from 3:30 to 6:00; the first part of practice would be warm-ups then the girls would go to their indi- vidual events. Some of these events consisted of the floor exercise, beam, uneven bars, parallel bars, and vault. Each girl on the team put several hours of hard work into the perfection of their individual event. " The girls on the team have showed much dedica- tion, and have kept up the same level of stamina all through the season, " com- mented Coach Dave Steb- ing. Many girls on the team have had many years of ex- perience in gymnastics. Sen- ior Sharon Hathaway com- mented, " I have been in gymnastics since the sixth grade and have enjoyed it very much. " " Next year ' s team should be very strong for us since we will only be losing two of our members; our under- classmen should lead us into a strong season. " Shannon Reed Although senior Stephanie Gratz was injured midway through the season, she still continued to sup- port the team by keeping stats and giving others support. Front Row: R. Roemke, T.

Incidentally, a con- ference record of 5-3 placed New Haven 2nd in the N.E.I.A.C. In retrospect. Coach Bischoff attributed the successful season to im- proved pitching and the de- velopment of underclass- men. One of these underclass- men, sophomore Dave Pos- ter, led the team with a bat- ting average of .425. Junior Rob Moyer also had a good season with a batting average of .352 and 24 RBI ' s. Tracy Fancher led the seniors with a batting average of .372 and 15 stolen bases, while senior Mark Koos, the leading pitcher of the team, had a record of 6 wins, 1 loss, 7 saves, and a 2.13 E.R.A. The 1987 season was filled with many highlights. For ex- ample, the team posted wins over two top-twenty teams and four sectional champs during the regular season. The team rallied at home and was also victorious in the New Haven Invitational Tourney. The final highlight of the season came when four play- ers received All-Conference honors, tying the number of players honored in the ' 86 season. Senior Tracy Fancher received First Team honors, Rob Moyer and Dave Doster received Second Team hon- ors, while Mark Koos gained an honorable mention. With five starters return- ing and taking the ' 87 record into consideration, the New Haven Baseball Team should have a chance for another successful season. — Kaylene Riemen " I was really pleased with the team ' s season and with my own personal performance this year. It was especially good to have such a successful season during my senior year on the team. " 3 Baseball 95 4(t First Year Team Excels " It ' s a great season when you come out with a winning record in the first year of that sport. But it ' s an awesome season when that record is 14-3. I was really proud of the team, but even more proud to be a part of it. " Being the rookies did not stop the girl ' s softball team from having an exceptional season. The varsity team fin- ished with a record of 14-3. One asset that contributed to the 14-3 record was that of goal setting. One goal set prior to the season was to have a .500 season. Another goal was to be competitive in conference. Both of these goals were accomplished. The varsity team had a three- way tie for conference champions. " Since this was our first year, I thought we did a great job. Hopefully, we will do just as good, if not better next year, " stated Ang Mu- rua. Three awards were given to girls who had outstanding achievement. The award for most valuable team member went to freshman Keri Wooldridge. Keri was pitch- er on the varsity team. Out- fielder Nicole Miller was awarded most improved team member. The Best Mental Attitude Award was received by senior Andrea Gilley. Helping the coaches and giving encouragement to team members was the job of the captains. The captains for the varsity team were seniors Andrea Gilley and Michelle Clements. " Next year we should be strong again, as we are only losing four seniors! " com- mented coach Susan Weimer. The junior varsity team, on the other hand, did not have as good a season. They end- ed their season with a record of 0-7. Not only is defense need- ed to make a strong team, offense is also important. Some key players in the bat- ting area for the junior varsi- ty team were freshman Jan- elle Smith with a .529 batting average and junior Jean Dy- ben with a .455 batting aver- age. With a young team and ex- perience from last year, the J.V. team hopes for a much improved season. — Kelly Berning There are many forms of bunting, lunior loan Dyben applies a bunting technique during a home game.

Having more than one person in each event, helped us to earn more points. " The 1987 boy ' s track team had a very successful season, with a second place finish in Conference. Two new school records were set this year; the first was in the 400 meter relay. Steve Jackson, Jeff Sowers, Mike Wordan and Jim Kenneil lowered the time to 44.1 seconds. Rob Norton broke his own record in the 300 meter low hurdles with a time of 38.0 seconds. Many personal bests were also set at the Conference meet. Rob Norton started off the night with a 14.9 in the 110 meter high hurdles, giv- ing him a second place fin- ish. Next, sophomore Jim Kenneil ran the 100m dash in 11.3 seconds. In the 800 me- ter run, junior Brad Lepper had a surprising perfor- mance of 2:02.3 minutes. Brad was seated seventh, but received a hard-earned third place. Sophomore Sean Hos- field, also turned in a great performance, finishing the two mile run in 9:53 minutes, placing second. Also, senior John Kanable heaved the shot 52 ' 4 " . Those who received a first or second place in the Con- ference meet were placed on the All-NEIAC Track Team. All Conference mem- bers included Troy Hoffer in the long jump, Sean Hosfield in the 3200m run, John Kan- able in the shot put, and Jim Kenneil in the 100 meter dash. Kenneil along with Mike Wordan, Jeff Sowers, and Steve Jackson earned honors in the 400 meter re- lay. Rob Norton received awards in the 100 meter high hurdles, 300 meter low hur- dles and along with Troy Hoffer, Jeff Tenbarge and Jeff Riffe in the 1600 meter run. John Kanable, Sean Hos- field and Rob Norton quali- fied for regionals at the Sec- tional meet. In order to advance to Regionals the athletes had to place in the top four. At the Regional meet, John Kanable and Rob Norton qualified to partici- pate at the State meet in In- dianapolis. At the annual banquet. Brad Lepper received the Coaches Award. Brad earned this award by displaying ded- ication and an attitude re- spected by the coaches. John Kanable received the Best Mental Attitude award. Rob Norton was awarded the MVP. Of the forty-six track members, only seven will be lost due to the graduation of seniors; a very good sign of another great year coming up for the Dogs.

All in all it was a great year because we were so close. " The 1987 Girl ' s track team proved themselves success- ful. Losing many of last year ' s team to the girl ' s softball team, it left this season with only 17 girls. The team con- sisted of only one senior and many underclassmen. With these disadvantages, the team still had great accom- plishments and improve- ments. Leesa Bedwell, who re- ceived the Best Mental Atti- tude Award and Most Im- proved Award, lowered her best time in the 3200m run to a 12.12.5 at the confer- ence meet. The team fin- ished sixth at the meet; they also placed second at the Harding Invitational, which was one of the biggest high- lights of the season. The team then tied for eighth in Sectionals, with Leesa Bedwell and Deb Nor- ton both advancing to Re- gional. Norton then ad- vanced to State in the hurdles. First year head coach Sue Carnes saw many improve- ments in her team. The freshmen gained a lot of confidence and experience in their events, which helped the team with many points. Another improve- ment throughout the season was better attitudes and compatibility among the team. " The attitudes in all of us were super by the end of the season, I felt this helped a lot in team efforts, " stated Leesa Bedwell. The upcoming year has a very positive outlook. The team should be stronger and deeper with many experi- enced upperclassmen re- turning from the past season. — Kim Trahin Coiling for the throw, Sophomore Amy Thompson concentrates and collects her thoughts as she pre- pares to throw the discus for the junior varsity level. 3 Girl ' s Track 100 € Once in the air, it ' s just a matter of A look of pain and determination the body clearing the bar.

We had some prob- lems playing in the 18 hole tourna- ments, but that should improve if the players practice over the sum- mer for next year. " The New Haven golf team was a very competitive team to play against in the 1987 season mainly because of the new, first year coach and the fine Varsity and Junior varsity teams. Being a first year coach, Sam May was very optimistic at the beginning of the year. " I think the team is progress- ing quickly, we should have a sound golf team. " explains Coach May. How did the players feel about the team? Most of them just enjoyed playing the game of golf, but a few were more serious than oth- ers. Sophomore Steve Red- mond commented on his outside practice. " I try to play at least 18 holes every weekend if possible. " But there were those peo- ple who were out to get bet- ter scores and have lots of fun. One player commented on how New Haven stood up against other golf teams in this way, " I think our team has a lot more fun than most of the other golf teams main- ly because of our coach, Mr. May. He ' s awesome, he doesn ' t get mad when you shoot bad and he tries to help you when you ' re doing something wrong. " The reasons for joining the golf team varied among dif- ferent players. One player. Sophomore Steve Redmond had this reason, " I don ' t par- ticularly like track and I wanted to do something in the spring so I went out for golf. " Whatever the reasons were for going out for the golf team, the outcome was the same; everyone got a lit- tle better at golf and had a whole lot of fun!

" The school spirit this year is not as good as it has been in past years but the cheerleaders have worked more this year on prompting spirit rather than cheerleadlng itself. " Creating interesting cheers which would develop spirit and stimulate crowd participation took a lot of time and dedication of the cheerleaders. Although school spirit was very low last year, the cheerleaders still tried many things to generate more enthusiasm throughout the school. Cheerleaders spent a great deal of time organizing dif- ferent cheers and skits that required the participation of students. The skits were en- joyed by many; however, the response on cheers was not always as much as the cheer- leaders would have liked. Many of the ideas for cheers and skits were devel- oped by the cheerleaders at camp. The squads attended camp at The University of Miami in Ohio. During this time, they participated in different sessions through- out the day. Going to the sessions at camp helped with learning new cheers, chants and mounts. In addition, they also were assisted on perfecting their techniques and style of cheers. " Attending camp for the first time, I found out that it is not all fun and games, it takes a lot of energy and hard work to make it through the days at camp, " stated LeeAnna Luther, a ju- nior varsity cheerleader. Besides practicing twice a week, and cheering at games on weekends and week nights, the cheerleaders also spent study halls and extra time in the media center preparing posters. These were then used to decorate lockers, locker rooms, halls, and such. " I thought it was great that the cheerleaders continued their support by decorating the lockers and locker rooms throughout the sea- son even though it was a down year for us, " com- mented Kraig .Vondran, a varsity football player. In the end, all the hard work and dedication paid off. The cheerleaders felt a sense of accomplishment af- ter being the " spirit leaders " of New Haven and being able to support our teams through good and bad games. — Kim Trahin W ' One of the cheerleader ' s responsi- bilities was to promote spirit during time-out which Misty Snyder, Pam Schieman and Nicole Miller dem- onstrate at a game.

N THE KNOW Behind all the club activites, and sport events is the real reason we attend school, to learn so that we become knowledgeable about the real world. In school we are taught skills, as well as facts, that will help us as we mature and become older. Our world is changing and be- coming more advanced in all areas everyday. For this reason our academics in school must also change. New Haven High School ' s academics were greatly improved in ' 87 by a new program called R.E.A.C.H. which helped students learn how to use their minds more effectively. It changed the curriculum from solely books, papers, and pro- jects to more mind-stretching activities which also increased class participation. New Haven also sent six participants to the Academic De- cathalon for the first time, while Mr. Stuckey, director of the I.C.E. program, sent students to hands-on-training jobs. The Bulldogs knew the key to succeeding in academics depended on the students themselves and their desire to learn. This desire was evident in the sixty-three students on honor roll and the seventy-three students on honorable mention. For these students learning was a challenge. Maybe some of these students were known as " bookworms " or " brains " , but deep inside everyone ad- mired their self-discipline and determination. Power Training is an out of the classroom course offered here at NHHS. Sophomore Troy Hoffer concentrates as he lifts. Al- though there ' s no books or studying, there is a lot of effort and hard-work put into getting a good grade. Academics 108 ♦) Surprised? or just showing off?!

The ICE program is a vocational work-study program which strives to provide an avenue for the transition from school to the world of work. ICE enables select, enthusiaistic twelth-grade students who have a ca- reer interest to work with local busi- ness, industrial trades, data processing, food service, horticulture, office prac- tice, and other jobs and technical fields. One such student who joined the ICE program was senior Chris Barrien- tos. " When I first heard about the ICE program, I thought that it would be a great opportunity for me to do what I like. I had known a couple of guys at the firm of MSKTD and Associates INC., so I thought I could get a job with them. I had talked with them and then with Mr. Stuckey. They agreed that it would be good for both me and the firm, so I went through the interview and I was on my way, " stated Chris Bar- rientos. The ICE students are enrolled in three hours of classtime each day throughout the school year. One of the classes is for students to study informa- tion relating to their vocational inter- est. ICE students must have a minimum of 15 hours per week of on-the-job training. Mr. Tom Stuckey co-ordinated the idea of the work-study program, and a year ago, his ideas were incorporated into a class. For Senior Chris Barrientos, the ICE program has provided him with a full time architectural draftsman job work- ing on the Cad computer and drawing details and plans on the board. " In the fall, I plan to go to Purdue University to get a bachelors of science degree in engineering, " he concluded. — David Drake Although it started out as a part-time job with the ICE program, senior Chris Barrientos decided to go into architectural drafting as a full-time career. 3 ICE Program 111 Freshmen — Front Row: C.

Reaching the Top Forty Top Ten students strived to be the best academically of their class Some Top Ten students feel that exercising their bodies is as important as exercising their minds. During weight lifting class. Junior Ray Colglazier records his weight statistics. Last year, NHHS revolved around ac- ademics; after all, the reason our school existed was for learning. While most of us tried our best to succeed grade- wise, a group of 40 students took their classes seriously and attained grades good enough to place them in the Top Ten of their respective classes. The seniors who achieved this honor were (in order): Matt Ritchie, Todd Ev- ans, Scott Eakright, Brenda Renninger, Jeff Grabill, John Kanable, Mike An- ders, Brian Ferguson, Kevin Berning, and Sheryl Robinson. The junior top Dogs were Debbie Manns, Becky Haus, Adrian Polit, All Farmoumand, Ed Pierce, Gary Hahn, Melissa Holmes, Ray Colglazier, Dave Foellinger, and Sonya Certain. Christi Miller, Stephanie Cox, Kay- lene Riemen, Troy FHoffer, Stephanie Lewis, Kassie Kidd, Amy Schumm, Joel Police, Pam Hoover, and Amanda Dix- son made up the Top Ten of the class of ' 89. The freshmen Top Ten consisted of: Cheryl Horney, Kim Krieger, Jim Wissman, Paul Ferguson, Charles Dolby, Kathy Emerick, Sam Teter, An- drea Gabet, Todd Kirkton, (tied for eighth) and Brett Lee. Dedication helped these students stick to their studies when others were out having a good time. Consequently, many sacrifices were made. Despite these sacrifices, most Top Ten students were able to remain rather active in extra-curricular activities such as sports, part-time jobs, clubs, etc. For example, Brenda Renninger participat- ed in French Club and Campus Life and worked at McDonald ' s, while Jeff Gra- bill excelled in football, IBL basketball, and baseball. As they looked to the future , the members of the Top Ten knew that good grades would be beneficial in the long run. " I hope that all of the study- ing I ' ve done pays off so that I can enter the college of my choice, " commented Amy Schumm. Guidance counselor Mrs. Snyder summed up the qualities of the Top Ten students in this way, " To be in the Top Ten, it takes not only intelligence, but effort and perseverance. " — Kaylene Riemen 3 Top Ten 113 4t - New Technique R.E.A.C.H. helps everyone to learn Students at NHHS last year had the opportunity to experience a new way of learning by using the R.E.A.C.H. Pro- gram. Two years ago, East Allen became as- sociated with Project 2002 (now the R.E.A.C.H. Program) at Northside High School in Fort Wayne. Teachers learned new ideas in workshops and " reached " out to other teachers to help them gain new ideas. Teachers ap- plied the ideas here in East Allen and developed their own futuristic plans. They began by working within the building to train one another in the new techniques. The Program was designed to pre- pare students for the future. The tech- niques helped students think for them- selves. For example, they learned more analysis, application, evaluation, and synthesis skills. These skills would help them meet the needs they would have after graduation. Students also received variety in the classroom, making classes more interesting. There were different feelings about this new learning system. Some felt en- thusiastic while others were uncom- fortable because it was new to them. " I think that it ' s neat to see how other people think, " commented Sopho- more Renee McCoy. In the long run, students experienced an awareness of how these skills were important. Teachers used various learning de- vices in the program. Teachers also benefited by helping each other and adding to their knowledge. Like stu- dents, they also had more variety in the classroom. There were many different teaching devices used. A few were Concept At- tainment exercises. Inquiry Training, Jurisprudential Evaluation, Synectics, a creativity building exercise, and Taba Induction Method. The most popular exercise was Con- cept Attainment, an inductive strategy. It began with a concept that the teach- er gave the students to focus on. The students went through a series of steps that led them to the concept. Examples were shown which contained and did not contain the concept. While exam- ining them, the students figured out the concept, and then identified its at- tributes. The last step was for the stu- dents to examine their thinking strate- gies. Teachers felt that this way of learning helped everyone. " We have learned from one another. New Haven has con- cerned teachers who want to prepare students to live in an everchanging world. This is one way that everyone, teachers and students alike, can make the school and themselves better, " commented Mrs. Campbell, New Ha- ven coordinator of the program. JoAnna Goldy I In any kind of learning, one must use his or her thinking ability, junior Jon Dize concentrates on the analogies that Mrs. Campbell is giving him. Teachers from other departments also expressed interest in learning this new technique. Mrs. Campbell explains the process while they do a Synetics exercise together. Reach Program 114 Attributes are a helpful way to reach the conclu- sion of a Synectics exercise. As the students give attributes, Mrs. Campbell writes them on the chalkboard. During a Concept Attainment, everyone must vote on whether or not the examples contain the concept. Juniors Stacy Stverak, and Tim Sims agree upon the same example while Heidi Bulte- meier sits pondering. [SllinOiOnSj The teacher gives both positive and negative ex- amples during a Concept Attainment. Mrs. Campbell contemplates which example to give 3 Reach Program 115 New Haven High School ' s IMC was a valuable source of information.

N Studyin A little know how helped us get by All of us went to school to learn, but unfortunately learning, for most of us, required some intense studying. Most students (unless they possessed a photographic memory) had to study to pass their classes. To accomplish this dreaded task, they developed certain routines and techniques to use to make studying a bit more pleasant. Several students preferred to put on some comfortable P.J. ' s, and study in the pri- vacy of their bedrooms while listening to their favorite radio station. Sopho- more Monica Young commented, " When I get home I watch cartoons, have a snack (brain food), and then I get started on my homework. " Talking to friends helped make studying less dreary. Amy Melcher en- joyed calling friends before beginning the task of homework. Sophomore Jen- ny Rowland added, " While studying for an important test, I usually talk to an- other person on the phone and have them ask me questions. " Some students developed bad study habits. Junior Shane Becker stated, " I rarely study because it takes too much time, and I have other things to do. " Procrastination is a bad study habit many people had to deal with. Sopho- more Rochelle Feldheiser, who de- scribed herself as a compulsive procras- tinator, (she ' s an A student, too!) said, " I think I usually perform well under the pressure! " Students who were involved in extra- curricular activities and those who held jobs sometimes had difficulty finding time to complete assignments. Junior Dawn Mann, co-captain of the High- lights, commented, " I try to study be- fore practice and afterward. " Sopho- more Connie Bloomfield, who worked two to three nights a week, said, " I ' m able to do my homework at work, but sometimes I have to stay up late to fin- ish it. " Wise students took advantage of their study halls and concentrated on their schoolwork. Mrs. Hevel, a study hall teacher for nine years stated, " Most kids use their time well; " She admitted though, " some kids never study. " Most of the academically inclined students attributed their success in school to studying. This proved that studying really paid off and the study habits put to use helped make the dif- ference between a C+ and an A + . — Kaylene Riemen 3 Study Habits 117 4 The New Competition In their first year the NHHS team came in second in the Academic Decathalon The Academic Decathalon was an event which took mental skills rather than physical skills. This was the reason that the participants were attracted to the competition. " Being a participant gave me a chance to be part of a team that wasn ' t sports oriented, " said senior Jeff Kintz. The Decathalon was a series of events where the participants had to take tests over mathematics, economics, social studies, language and fine arts, and sci- ence. Other parts of the competition were a prepared speech, impromptu speech, an interview, and a super quiz over the constitution. The participants were Matt Ritchie, Adrian Polit, John Kanable, Jeff Grabill, Jeff Kintz and Dave Durm. They were chosen by grade point averages. The team had to consist of two A, two B, and two students who were either se- niors or juniors and teacher recom- mended. The participants prepared by having evening study sessions, tutoring by teachers and a great deal of studying on their own. " We were satisfied with the results and level of preparation, but of course there is always room for im- provement. " said junior Adrian Polit. The first competition was held on January 17, 1987 at Northridge High School in Middlebury. They placed 2nd out of 10 schools. photo by Mrs. Cai This made them eligible for the state competition in Indianapolis on Febru- ary 14, 1987. " I was ecstatic " said Jeff Kintz. Even though New Haven was the sec- ond smallest school to participate they placed 13th out of 20 schools and sec- ond in the super quiz. The Academic Decathalon gave stu- dents a chance to academically excell. It brought a lot of schools together. The Academic Decathalon Participants did an overall great job!

It is almost ready to be cut into slices, and then it will be sold to many anx- ious customers. I The Frankenmuth Cheese Haus included a small restaurant, imported cheese, wines, and food. Many people went here to buy some pop or candy while touring the town. J Field Trips 120 t Fun and Learning Leaving the classroom adds variety Besides books and the usual lectures from teachers, students experienced a different learning technique. Field trips brought new ideas into the classroom and broke the monotonous routine of daily school life. In late November, Mr. Rohrmoser accompanied the German students as they toured Frankenmuth, Michigan. The main attraction of the German trip was the towering figurine clock that told the Pipe Piper story at 12:00 noon. This was a very interesting happening that many people gathered to see. They also visited the town ' s church where a lady told them the history of Frankenmuth and answered any ques- tions that they had. A group of forty-three Latin students and four adult chaperons took a field trip to Chicago, Illinois. While in Chica- go, the students visited the Field Muse- um of Natural History. The feature of the day was " Ancient Rome. " Next they walked to the Shedds Aquarium. FHere they wandered around looking at the various fish. Concluding the trip was the Sears Tower where the stu- dents enjoyed the view of the windy city. The last of the foreign language trips was the trip to Cleveland and Toledo, Ohio taken by the Spanish students. Mrs. Mann, Mrs. Beaman, and Mrs. Luenburger chaperoned the group. They all were taught the culture and life style of the ancient civilization. " I think the trip was very interesting and worth the time to go and learn more about the Myan Indians, " commented Sophomore Jenny McCleary. The Spanish students were also taken to the special exhibition of many Spanish art- One of the many German customs is the use of the bier dickel (beer stein). Waitresses carry ten at a time, and while serving the beer, she slides it down the table to the thirsty people. ists. Finally, they ate at the authentic Mexican restaurant. The Casa Baron, in Toledo. FHere they talked to their friends and enjoyed the Mexican food. Another more unusual field trip was the business law classes ' trip to the Al- len County Court FHouse, the City Court Building, the Superior Court, and the Circuit Court. In addition, they spent some time in the misdemeanor court. The purpose of this trip was to expose students to the court systems and to show them where the courts are located. They listened in on various cases in the different court rooms. " It was a lot of fun watching cases, and it was great getting out of school, " said Junior Kirk Tucker. " The trial that we went to go see was cancelled, but we got to see other ac- tivities in the court rooms that gave the students the opportunity to see what the court system was like, " commented Mr. Johnson. One of the most famous trips taken by every Freshman was the McMillan Health Center trip on March 9, 1987. During this trip, students had the chance to learn more about the repro- ductive system, childhood diseases, and genetics. They saw Tammy who told about her body and its functions. Another part of the trip was seeing a baby being born. This was a neat experience. As foreign language, business law, and health students found out, through various field trip experiences, there was much more to learning than what was included between the front and back covers of their textbooks. — JoAnna Goldy Field Trips 121 Peafiie Did Ya Know that there were 6 more males than females in attendence at NHHS ... the Freshman Class of ' 90 was the largest class with 262 members . . . that number was 10 greater than the Junior Class of ' 88 who had 252 . . . following close behind was the Senior Class of 1987 with 251 .. . the smallest class last year was the Sophomore Class of ' 89 who only had 235 members . . .

NOWBODIES The inside of N.H.H.S. is not just solid walls of cement built into the shape of a box. During the hours of 8:00 to 3:05 this building contains many unique individuals. Every student has a different personality. No two are the same, it is this exact difference that makes a person special. Without the differ- ent look, the different ability, or the different opinion, life would be boring because every one would be the same. In fact, knowing " the difference " is knowing the person. Individuality is what keeps the school func- tioning. With so many different sports and ex- tra-curricular activites every student has a chance to show others their special talent. Extra-curricular activites and sports were not the only opportunities for students to excell Academics at times was even more challenging Those with the potential for excellence in aca- demics welcomed the many challenges in their classes. But these things did not satisfy all of the students at N.H.H.S. Some students took a step by getting a job after school. This helped them prepare for the future and for their possible career. The diverse personalities and talents of the students at N.H.H.S. helped in molding the year, and many people soon came to know it was the students that built N.H.H.S. and not the cement.

Everyone likes to dream of the per- fect vacation and NHHS students were no different from anyone else. " I would like to have gone to a tropical island off the coast of sunny, daring Florida with men galore and beach, brown, bronze, blond, bodies ail around me, where the drinks come one after another, with the crystal clear water and the white silky sand which are added features, " commented Jodi Fitzgerald, and Sheila Isenbarger. For many, this would have been the chance of a lifetime, but for the stu- dents who had to work or had early morning practices it would have been very hard to get away. " FHaving to work during the weekend is a problem sometimes because that is really the only time friends go out and do some- thing together without having to worry about school the next day. I wish I had more time to spend with my friends but I guess that ' s the price you pay for making money, " commented Denise Gratz. Not only did New Haven students work on their weekends, but sports also took up their share of time. Wak- ing up on brisk cold mornings to work out would have made anyone wish he could of just packed up and left for a weekend. " Having practices on Satur- day mornings had it ' s ups and downs, sometimes I didn ' t ever want to get up, but to get a good position on the team you have to be there and be dedicat- ed, " stated senior Rob Norton. Some students could set aside a weekend, pack their bags and venture out on their long-awaited dream vaca- tion. But for a majority of NHHS stu- dents dreaming was all they had to look forward to. — Joan Dyben pholo by Kelly Ben People 124 Annette Boschet Lorie Botts Brent Brewer Glenn Brock Jennifer Bryant Kris White and Kelly Berning pose for a picture while waiting for their boarding cue to the Baha- mas.

The annual se- nior blow-off day was no surprise to anyone considering there were over 60 seniors names on the absent list that day. Every senior felt they deserved a day off, even If the administration wouldn ' t recognize it as being an offi- cial excused absence. That day was usually a day for all of them and their friends to get together to eat, drink, and have fun! This was also a chance for all seniors to see their friends for one of the last times, as some would be graduating in January. " It went great, everybody had a great time, and it was a time for all of us to get together for an enjoyable time be- fore graduation. It ' s also a good reason to skip school. " stated senior Steve Hammond. Dancing, laughing, and talking about old times were not uncommon when friends got together for one of the last times. Everyone gathered around 10;00 a.m. and enjoyed the day together until everyone was ready to out and party that night. " It went great having us all together outside of school, because it was halloween and we could party all day and party all night. " commented senior Jamie Harner.

Six Letters Say It All SUPERIORITY — Having superiority over underclassmen was always rewarding to a senior. " Being a senior means taking advantage of being a senior, like in the lunch line, " quoted Gretta Childress. It took them four years to reach this point, and now that they were there, nothing was more important than being superior. EXCEPTIONAL - The class of 1987 had many outstanding exceptional students. Not only did they excell in sports, but they also did well academically. One of the many academic bulldogs was Matt Ritchie. " This year by far had been my hardest. I expected to have an easier time this year, but instead I have had to work a lot more than previously. — but don ' t get me wrong, I still find plenty of time to have fun. After high school I plan to attend Indiana University and study medicine. This means I have many more years of hard work ahead so I plan to enjoy this last year of high school as much as I can. " stated Matt Ritchie. NEAT — Fashion was always a big part of high school, but as soon as you were a senior dressing free-style was all you cared about. " It doesn ' t really matter when you ' re a senior, you hardly know any of the underclassmen, and being comfortable is really all that matters. " commented Rhonda Reimschisel. But for a few that had invested four years of work money into their wardrobes, being fashionable was extremely important. INSPIRING — While seniors watched their dreams become reality, many of them showed the inspiration by making their last year count. " Being a senior is hard, because you have to show leadership when it ' s hard to get others to follow, " quoted Jeff Kintz. OUTRAGEOUS — Never knowing what to expect was common in the senior class. " You never know of a party until Friday, and then it ' s still up in the air about what you ' re going to do and what to expect when you do it. " commented Scott Weekly. RECOGNIZABLE — You can usually recognize a senior by their old letter jacket, or by their walk down the hallway, which was one of the belonging, and confidence. Because it was their last year here, you could almost always find them in the guidance counselors office getting college information. " Being a senior is looking forward to the future and being an example. " remarked Kris White. These words could summarize what really makes up a senior after four years of hard work, good times, and determination. The next time you hear the word SENIOR think of SUPERI- ORITY, EXCEPTIONAL, NEAT, INSPIRING, OUTRAGEOUS, and RECOGNIZABLE because after four years of hard work they had earned the right to be referred to with such complimentary terms. — Joan Dyben 3 People 128 Darren Oongaware Tina Gonzales Michelle Gorr Jeff Grabill Shelley Grabner Todd Graham Denise Gratz Stephanie Gratz Hari Grayless Hillary Grooms Jerry Grossman Ted Gustin Eric hall Sheila Halsey Lee hammer pholo by Cindv Ponrod Going through the card catalog looking for a book as a reference, senior Brent Hiatt gets a start on the annual Senior term papers, which were required by all English teachers.

Mrs. Snyder often gave advice to ! the Council. I Senior Council Going along with tradition, the Se- nior Class of 1987 was looked upon to take the lead in most activities. But who lead the seniors in these activities? None other than the Senior Council. The Senior Council, involved in the planning of many activities, was busy throughout most of the year, but espe- cially in the spring. One of the many responsibilities of the Senior Council was to narrow down the choices for graduation announce- ments. After the Senior Council nar- rowed down the choices to three, the senior class voted for the announce- ment they wanted. The Senior Council also sponsored the Sadie Hawkins dance. The band, re- freshments, and decorations were all paid for by the senior class. Another dance the Senior Council planned was the Senior Dinner Dance, the Senior Council prepared for every- thing including the senior prophesies. But the most important event Senior Council plans for is graduation. " It is neat to plan for such a special occasion such as graduation, " com- mented Senior Council member Lee Hammer. Senior Council member Cathy McQueen added, " I had fun planning the activities for the senior class. We did a lot of work for the seniors, but since it ' s a special year, it ' s really worth it!

Senior Melissa Davis goes over some financial aid forms for her college career. Seniors plan for college Getting a head start on independent living ) by Cindy Penrod Planning for college can be a long, tough decision. But for most seniors, planning and visiting were the best part. " The best part of planning for col- lege is getting a day off to visit different schools. " stated Senior Craig Koeh- linger. The descision for most seniors would depend upon financial aid such as loans, grants, and scholarships. Aca- demic and Athletic scholarships were also available to seniors who excelled in these ar eas. For a majority of the Senior class, many Seniors are going away for college. I.U. in Bloomington and Ball State were the favorites. " Going away to Ball State is going to be so much fun. It will be really neat to meet other peo- ple, and see the people from New Ha- ven who are already there. I think I ' ll love the college life, " stated Senior Melissa Drews. Although some Seniors are staying around home for college, there will still be changes in their lives. College is much more challenging than high school, and this will greatly change the routines we were accustomed to in high school. But the challenge is what most seniors go to college for, along with meeting new people, and expand- ing their interest. " College will be rough, but meeting new faces, and making new friends will make it a lot easier. It will be great rooming with someone I went to high school with. " commented Senior Curt Johnson.

Most seniors felt this early in the beginning of the school year, but as the year came to a close senioritis was more predomi- nate. Wanting to leave early was an un- derstatement considering they had spent four hard years working to get out. " I ' m glad I graduated 7th semester because I had senioritis early and want- ed to get out. " stated Senior Paul Dy- ben. There were many symptons of Sen- ioritis, which were natural for seniors to go through. The most typical symptons were not doing homework, and always putting it off. Blowing off class was rat- ed second. A few seniors got daring and wrote passes for every period of the day. " I loved forging Mr. Huff ' s name because it was so easy. Everytime someone would ask to see my pass I would show them and I would get away with it every time, " commented a sen- Misty Snyder Gwen Sovine Jeff Sowers John Speth Kelley Stafford Lisa Starewich Tonya Steigerwald Sandra Stephens Bryan Stiebling fiirsten Stine Kim Yeter Bryan Thomas Rebecca Thurman Caryl Tuttle Chris Trout ior who chose to remain anonymous. These symptons were definitely not permitted by staff or advisers, but some seniors felt the need to take a break from their daily routine. Another reason for senioritis was be- cause of the unusually early warm weather. Seniors began to look forward to senior activities sooner than last year. Although the upper student hall was filled with the true apprehensive feelings of leaving New Haven, the ar- rival of caps and gowns and invitations excited seniors even more. True, grad- uation was an important and exciting day to look forward to, but the memo- ries brought back were unforgettable. Spring signified a fresh start for all the students whether it be the beginning of adult life for the seniors, or the begin- ning of summer for us all. — Joan Dyben After the Seniors last day, Seniors Jeff Sowers and Jeff Kintz live it up at one of the many graduation parties.

New faces and old faces crowded the hallways and friends gathered together to discuss weekend plans. Each day we say a different face; someone we never realized was a part of our student body. We brushed past them in the hall or saw them across the cafeteria. Over the years those name- less faces became lunch pals and best friends. Moving from a different school dis- trict to New Haven in the 9th grade, Senior Gretta Childress stated, " I met most of my friends in the 9th grade at football games and Pizza Hut. Meeting people here at New Haven wasn ' t as hard as it had been at other schools, the people here are friendly, like family now. " Through these people our school came alive. Because of all the masses of students the halls of New Haven were alive with laughter, excitement and people getting to know each other. — Laurie Dawson photo by Brian Sliebeling Junior Class Officers: Front; Vice President, Dave Foellinger, President, Missy Jackson.

For some, concentration and skills played the biggest part in being an individual. They found that being different wasn ' t as easy as it seemed. For example, senior Shawn Johnson spent some of his spare time mountain climbing. He seemed to enjoy this dan- gerous hobby that most poeple would fear just thinking about. Precision and concentration were a big part of this daring sport. He said, " Rock climbing (mountain climbing) is hard because you have to concentrate on what you are doing and not get distracted by something else. If you make one mis- take a couple hundred feet above the ground, it tends to be fatal. " Junior Scott Hambleton felt that indi- viduality was a big part of wrestling too. " Wrestling takes a lot of dedication and time, and I feel it ' s more of an individ- ual sport than a team sport, " he said. In addition to the unique skills, inter- ests, and appearance of students, the distinct personalities of the students shined through. Senior Darrin Congaware stated quite simply, " I like to make people laugh and smile be- cause it puts everybody in the mood to party. " Sophomore Amy Alder summed it all with, " Individuality is like a snowflake, every snowflake is different; every per- son is different too.

The sophomores would never have to face freshman cracks again. Now it was their turn to show off their talents. For instance, the new veterns could now tell the freshmen that they had to leave for lunch, or that all freshmen have to sit in the front of the room. Other favorites were directing the freshmen the wrong way or telling them that the quickest way up was the elevator. All they had to do was punch the button. Sophomores could not have been happier to be accepted by the upper- classmen and to realize that they were on their way up. Sophomore Paul Chil- dress stated, " I just couldn ' t resist.

Joan attended Indiana School for the Blind for seven years and then attend- ed Blackhawk Elementary before com- ing to New Haven. " The teachers at New Haven have been more helpful and caring than the others teachers I have had before, " Joan said. As a handicapped student, she had no problem walking in the halls at school.

Many students made their rings unique by choosing to decorate their rings with accomplishments and People 150 4C Going For The Gold Sophomores pick out memories The times spent at New Haven could possibly be described as a collection of good memories or bad, most of them unforgettable. Whether it was a starting position on the varsity football team or a part in the school play, these memories could be recorded on a class ring. The ring itself has come a long way. When our parents were being educat- ed, most schools offered only one style of class ring. By 1987 the ring had be- come a personal work of art for each student. Jostens, New Haven ' s ring represen- tative let the student design his or her own personal ring. No two rings looked exactly alike. Jostens also participated in many other high school activities, such as graduation announcements. To record ones special memories a person could spend $100 or more de- pending on the changing price of gold. No matter what the price or the design each ring would always remind its own- er of the good ' ol days. Sophomore Ja- son Hoffman commented on his class ring. " I chose my emblems and style because it reflects my interests and goals of high school. " Paul Childress also stated that having a class ring was important to him. He commented, " It ' s something you can have forever to remind you of your high school activities " sort of like a yearbook reminds you of your friends. Another popular idea for a class ring was to share it with that special some- one. Girls usually liked to be seen wear- ing their boyfriend ' s class ring. The guys preferred wearing their girl- friend ' s ring on a necklace. By ordering a class ring, students were doing more than wearing a ring, they were holding on to all the great times high school brought like sports, academics, clubs, hobbies and of course, that special someone they shared your high school hopes and dreams with. Gretta Childress pholo by Mike McNeal When chosing a class ring there are many op- tions, stones, styles and ring colors. Jostens is happy to make our class rings exactly the way we wanted them.

In utter frustration, they decided to take the stairs and they too, stopped at the second floor.

Many freshmen received informa- tion to wrong rooms and floors, from students who had been at NHHS for several years. If the upper-classmen had thought back to their freshmen years they would have realized that the same things happened to them. Per- haps, that is why they gave the fresh- men such a hard time. " I remember when I was a freshmen most seniors told me the same things. I guess that it was like a tradition, " stated Sheila Halsey in reference to the hard time freshmen are given. Many strange happenings occured during the freshmen year, but once the year was over the ex-freshmen could play the same familiar pranks on the in- coming freshmen.

The fresh- man only had each other, but a school full of unknown faces to them would become their future classmates and friends. The freshman class had a lot of ad- justments and decisions to make. One big decision was made during the first few weeks of school when they select- ed their cheerleaders. Their first year at N.H.H.S. was a scary, but exciting time. They were no longer the big shots that they were in junior high. They were back at the bot- tom and they had to compete with people twice their size. All in all, being a freshman was a real attention grabber. Each freshman class seems to bring in more spirit. Freshman Susie Frane commented, " After the freshman jokes stopped, being a fresh- man was great. I ' ve met some of the funniest people.

' People 156 r © fl a fl fH A Deciding the Future Freshmen take time out to stop and think For most students at New Haven High School, the future was filled with confusion and uncertainy. Many had different ideas of what their future had in store for them. For some, college was a part of their plans, whereas others wanted to find good jobs or to join the armed forces. Many students will achieve their goals, but some will not, but all will have fun trying. " I want to go to college and get rich, " stated junior Chuck Vachon. Chuck ' s whole family supported him in his decisions for the future. Other stu- dents, like Chuck, put college and wealth high on the list of their goals. Sophomore Chad Hanefeld replied, " It is looking good so far. " Chad would like to be an orthropedic surgeon. He had done a lot of research and finds it a very interesting career. Most of the students at New Haven wanted to at- tend college and lead a successful life. Besides college, the armed forces provided an alternative that brought a new and interesting challenge. When asked about his future, junior John Lothamer stated, " I plan on enlisting in the Navy for 6 years and during that time I will also be attending college. " Goals were important because they gave students self-esteem and if there is something a person really wants, he will work hard to get it. Once the goal is achieved successfully, he would have gained more confidence in himself and would continue to reach even more difficult goals. — Cheryl Beck and Angie Guevara Kevin Sanders Norma Sanders Matt Saveio Paula Saylor Mechelle Schebig )onathon Schenk Steve Schilling Melissa Schlotterback )enny Schmidt )ason Schneider Chad Schnelker Melissa Scholle Greg Schuller Hilary Scott Matt Sell Ben Settle Sheila Shirey )enny Shoemaker Jennifer Silkworth Bryan Sloan Berton Smith Janelle Smith Sheldon Smith Sherry Smith I 1 B 2i i m i.

While in high school one tries to make a decision what he would like to do later in life. He starts taking classes to develop interest or to settle his curi- osity. During the freshman year there are not a lot of choices. Most of the stu- dent ' s classes are required, for in- stance, P.E., reading, orientation, and health are not electives. Many of the students, expecially the girls, said they P.E. if it wouldn ' t have taken wasn ' t required. After a while a freshman starts to no- tice that many of his friends are devel- oping interest in different subjects. New Haven has an excellant well-de- veloped home economics department, which many girls decided to major in. Other electives included science, busi- ness, and industrial arts. Overall, every freshman found some- thing at NHHS to interest him. — Cretta Childress Freshman Adam Robinson and Todd Kirkton re- lax together in front of their locker to catch up on their biology before the big test.

In their spare time teachers were active in various hobbies and jobs As the year quickly came to an end, not only were the students excited about a fun-filled summer, but the teachers were also. It was a time to plan all special activities with family and friends, " Family activities became very special to me since I live alone. " stated Coach Weimer. Miss Weimer had many hobbies to do over the summer as most teachers did. Her hobbies included re- furnishing furniture and to help with special Olympic basketball. New Haven High School ' s art teach- er, Mr. Kilmer, likes to spend his sum- mer with his wife and his dog, Norman, while he is hunting and fishing. While in school, most teachers had several extra-curricular activities con- cerning the school. Mr. Monaghan spent his time coaching varsity track and varsity football, " My coaching is now a way of life for me. " commented Mr. Monaghan. Not only did the teachers spend time helping people while in school, but they also were very helpful out of school. Choir director Mr. Henke kept a very close relationship with all of his students, " Mr. Henke is not just a teacher, he is a friend to everyone. " stated sophomore Amy Thompson. Mr. Henke has been teaching at N.H.H.S. for 16 years. He has taught subjects such as English, T.V. Productions, Mu- sic Theory, Girls Glee Club, Choir, and Speech. As he retires, the students and the faculty will miss him a great deal. Working at school was not the only job some teachers may have had. Mr. Hostetler sells life insurance while Mrs. Grabill finds working at home as a house wife was a fulls days work. " When things are going well, I love it! When things are not going will I wish for a long, solitary vacation on a tropical island. " concluded Mrs. Grabill. — Cheryl Beck )acob Delagrang Principal )oe Sumpter Administrative Assistant Kenneth Eytcheson Athletic Director Susan Bandt Lee Ann Beaman John Becker Mark Best Dave Bishoff Annette Campbell Shirley Casterline Barb Clements Wilma Collins Matt Derby Mike Ehinger Diane Fritcha John Garvin Trina Gentile Carolyn Glossenger Kent Goeglein ?► People 160 4t The back to the school blahs were not uncom- mon in teachers as well as students.

Just imagine . . . cigarettes littering the bathroom floors, food dried on the lunch room tables, and gum clogging the drinking fountains. It ' s not a very comforting thought. Fortunately, for us, there were peo- ple who did care enough to keep our school as neat and clean as possible. We had six janitors who worked around the clock scrubbing, sweeping, mowing and doing other odd jobs around the school. Also, the cooks came in at six o ' clock every morning to make sure that our meals were served to us on time. Both of these jobs took a lot of hard work and dedication. But unfortunate- ly, not many people realized this and their hard work went unrecognized and unappreciated. But we didn ' t for- get all the dedication and hard work they put in to make New Haven a bet- ter place. — Joan Dyben — Kelly Berning — Laurie Dawson pholo by Maintenance — Left Side: (Front to Back) T.

Mrs. Pat Bosse prepares the buns to get a headstart for the upcoming lunch period. School spirit was not only seen in students, but teachers as well. Mr. Blombach tried to help raise school spirit by participating in the homecoming pep session. After being egged and floured by the footba team Judge Wapner (Norman Stephan) signals the Bulldogs a victory. 0 Faculty 163 f 4cU Area businesses supported our school in many ways. Whether they bought ads in the Mirage, Herald, or play programs, donated money or items for raffles, or bought billboard signs for the outfield fence of the baseball diamond, their continued support was greatly appreciated because . . . T ALL ADS UP The ad section of any yearbook is probably the most overlooked, but without the support given by businesses there would be no Mi- rage ' 87. Local businesses provided the bulk of the money to produce the yearbook. In turn, we have provided space to publicize these businesses. They more than deserve it. If only you knew how many plays, sporting events, trips and other school func- tions, these generous enterprises, large or small, sponsored. In addition, these businesses believed in us. Thus, they gave us a chance by hiring students so we could earn extra spend- ing money or savings for the future. Businesses like Hair Harbor and Blackwell ' s provided us with the latest fashions in hair and clothes. Movies ' n ' Such allowed us to see our favorite movies. Pizza Hut patiently tolerated rowdy teen-agers who crowded into the res- taurant after games on Friday nights. The list could go on, but you get the idea. A small section of a yearbook isn ' t enough to show our appreciation, but it is a start. We also show our gratitude by patronizing the stores, shops, and restaurants and by showing respect for the employees and property. After all, the major reason these businesses continue to support the community, especially the students at NHHS, is because they know that investing money and effort in us will be paid back in the future with our knowledge and acquired skills. The Senior Awards Day Program would not have been possible if it weren ' t for the support of area businesses. Senior Kraig Von- dran shakes hands with a repre- sentative from Gibson Motors. Kraig received the Gibson Ath- letic Award for his dedication to athletics. Area Businesses supported the Bulldog Baseball Team by pur- chasing signs which were hung on the outfield fence. The mon- ey made from the sale of the signs helped the baseball team with some of its expenses. Junior Rob Moyer pitches the ball at a home game. 3 Ads 164 € without the support of area busi- nesses there would not have been programs for the plays. L ' il Abner (John Fedel) explains to Daisy Mae (Lori Brunton) that she better get him out of her heart and mind and find another guy to love. On December 17, the second an- nual balloon launch was sponsored by the NHHS SADD chapter. Senior Kirsten Stine hands out some of the balloons. Many businesses support- ed SADD by donating money and various items for SADD raffles and other special projects. photo bv Miss Cathy Pochodzay Editor of Impressions, Cina Shaffer, types a poem which was submitted for the magazine.

Adi 194 Cetten no pv tAc Sencon Sdcten. It ' s now 6:00 P.M. on Friday, June 12. Two hundred and seven pages of this book have been completed. I am sitting here in the journalism room finishing this page, the last page left in the book. In years past, the space on this page has been reserved to tell you about the production of the book and about the staff. I would like to start a new tradition. I am using this page to tell you about my feelings about this book. Maybe in future years future editors will do the same. Being a senior, and the Co-Editor of this book, it is very important to me. It is more than just a yearbook to me; it is my senior year. I can ' t count the hours I ' ve spent here af- ter school, on Saturdays, and these past two weeks that school has been There were times that I was real discouraged, but with the help and support of many people I pulled through those rough times, and now, finally, this book is done! There are so many people that I would like to thank. First of all, thanks to my staff. Thanks for being patient with me, and, to most of you, thanks for finishing your work so that I didn ' t have to. Thanks to Mr. Kirkton for his encouragement and advice. Thanks to Mr. Huff — for caring. Thanks to my friends and family for understanding that the yearbook had to come first a lot of the time. Thanks to Mark Childs for his advice and help. A special thanks to Miss Pochodzay for all the help and time she gave to finish this book. Most importantly, thanks to my Co-Editor Angela Myers. Thanks for taking care of all the business aspects, copy, index and all the oth- er special things you did. Cood luck next year! I know you will be a great Editor-in-Chief! Most of all, thanks for letting me do things my way, I appreciate your understanding how important it was to me. Like I said, this book is very im- portant to me, and the reason goes beyond the fact that I spent my se- nior year in room DWO. I wanted this book to be one of the best that New Haven ' s ever had. I wanted to preserve the memories of the past year for every person in this school, especially all of my friends and all of the seniors. There is a lot more that I could say, but I just don ' t have the time or the space. I ' d like to close with a few special comments. To all the faculty, staff, and students of New Haven: Please support the Mirage staff! They need your support and help in order to make a good, quality book! Lastly, to all of my friends: thank you for making my four years of high school very special for me. I tried to thank you by capturing some of those special moments on the pages of this book. Thank you for being so great! I will miss you all very much! Kelly Ann Hoffman Co-Editor-in-Chief Mirage ' 87 Co-Editor Junior Angie Myers spent many hours working with the computer to complete the Mirage index. Angie patiently inserts names and page numbers into the computer. Writing copy to cover an entire school year was not always an easy job. lunior Joan Dyben writes and rewrites her copy for the senior pages of the book. A big part of an editor ' s job is edit- ing and correcting layouts and copy of staff members. Co-Editor Kelly Hoffman goes over material for the last Mirage deadline.

V Closing 206 After twelve years of sharing Sood times togclher, most se- niors fared groduation with mixed feelings. Melissa Drews and Sharon Hathaway share a hug upon completion of the for- mal ceremony. Singing her heart out at the last Happenings Showtime is Junior Missie Jackson. Missie, who was an active member of the concert and swing choirs sang two songs at last year ' s show. n Looking back at the fun times — the end of year brought mixed emotions for many emories will last forever Walking through the halls on June 2, 1987 left a feeling of emptiness.

Who could forget when Nor- man Stephan was locked in the bathroom and an- nounced a reward for in- formation about the crime, and then Mr. John- son ' s arrest. Those were the times that held the I ' m glad to be getting out of high school and moving on to college, but, at times I get sod because I will miss all of my ftiends and the good times we had. A Kim Emetick school together. As always, homecoming and prom added refresh- ing excitement to the year. The funny, unex- pected classroom inci- dents that produced a room of laughter made school more enjoyable — things like light wars, or when a student fell asleep during sixth period and woke up an hour later to find a teacher staring down upon him. Saying goodbye was not just taking one more step up the ladder. It also meant we would hold on to memories we created — the fun times and the sad times. The yearbook will hold the record of prom queen and king, or the winning powder puff team, but only the students could remember the feeling of being asked to the Sadie Hawkins dance. That couldn ' t be recorded in NHHS history. We have come to the end of another year, and we have said our goodbyes, but we know that our memories will keep the year alive forever. 3 Closing 207 C ( Md fe tcC ( ad ccc fK u. t C u o S7f " Closing 208 4$) Volume 48 of the New Haven High School ' s Mi- rage was printed by Josten ' s American Yearbook Co. of Clarksville, Tennessee using a silkscreen process.
