clubs. Joining oThers and Through iT

wi+h old Triends was whaT made
being a member oT a club so special.
lT was Tun having meeTings, even if
They were early in The morning -
around 7:3O. Club acTiviTies which
may have included picnics, parTies.
bake sales, candy sales, conTerences,
and TournamenTs were all Tun
because we were sharing The Tun
wiTh oThers. We were in a sense
"working Tor The same goal."
Being a member oT a club gave us
a place in This large school oT ours. lT

To oTher club members, buT Tor The

Tun and exciTing.
GeTTing over The iniTiaTion in
some organizaTions was halT The baT-
Tle. Remember how embarrassing iT
was To wear ThaT silly haT all day or
doing oTher Tunny acTiviTies? YeT, iT
was Tun being noTiced by oThers.
Perhaps. you may remember oTher
club acTiviTies. How abouT The sell-

Tor joining a club: The reward is

uiclcly Togefher, forever

seniors in high school. The Time had
Tinally come when we were The Top,
The crowd everyone looked up To.
We had experienced Three Tull years
oT life wiTh each oTher, now we Taced
our Tinal year in school TogeTher.
With schedules in our hands and a
class ring on our Tinger, our liTe as a
l2Th grader began.
The 8:l5 bell rang as mosT oT us
began our day, while oTher lucky sTu-

Quickly was The word used To
describe our year as seniors. While

pasT 9 monThs were Tilled wiTh so
much Tun and advenTure ThaT There
was no Time To resT or even caTch our
breaTh beTore someThing new and
exciTing was happening. Through our
busy schedules, day aTTer day, our
parenTs seemed To Think we were
never aT home. AcTually, we weren'T.
Could we ever break The addicTion
oT Sonic cruising or Pizza lnn inva-

know ThaT we were sfill Theirs? No,
we were "seniors" and living iT up.
As The year Tinally came To a close
with The Senior ring spliTTing aparT,
iT was Time To realize we, Too, were
growing aparT. Each oT us had our
own liTe ahead, To do whaTever we
chose. WheTher we would quickly

could remember The TogeTherness
once shared as seniors.

Life in a locker
uring our days spenT as iuniors
in high school, diTTerenT Types oT
acTiviTies and responsibiliTies were aT

ciTic characTer oT our own. Though we
came in conTacT wiTh people every
day. noT many knew our True personal-
BuT a parT oT our hidden characTer
could be exposed by unlocking The liT-
Tle wall box down The hall- our
school locker. This Tiny hole in The wall
oTTen summarized our unique person-
aliTy aT ThaT special Time in our liTe.
The way we neaTly placed our coaTs
or hurriedly crammed in our books,
revealed a parT oT our inner selT. We
may never have ThoughT abouT iT, buT
aT The end oT The year, when we Tinally

As presidenT, ScoTT Bourland had
:een an inspiraTion To each member
:T The Treshman class, by The Triendly
smile and warm hearT ThaT oThers who
came in conTacT wiTh him saw. He was
respecTed by many sTudenTs and was
commended Tor all he had done To
make The I978-79 Treshman year a
success. Valory Aldridge, vice presie
denT, had conTribuTed her Time To The
success oT The year. She had proven To
her Tellow classmaTes ThaT high school
was The place To be.
SecreTary Teresa MaThis had

indeed represenTed her class as The
Treshman homecoming princess. As an
oTTicer, iT was always nice To be
respecTed and considered a leader by
The people. As leadership conTinues,
Jill Johnson. Treasurer, also sTrived To
make her TirsT year The besT oT all.
WiTh Three more years leTT aT NimiTz,

As The TearTul deparTure
occurred Two years ago, a
young lady experienced a whole

Though The Tounder oT our cul-

A disTincTive Type oT speech.

Now, as Time passes. Denise

Freshmen lead The Way To Tomorrow
s many Treshmen enTered high
school, a sense oT responsibiliTy
became an everyday aTTair ThaT
required a greaT deal oT leadership.
IT wasn'T easy To leave The old junior
high days behind. As 8Th graders,
each was considered a Top leader in
his own way. lT gave Them a Teeling oT
maTuriTy and pride To know ThaT some-
one looked up To Their way oT living.
Now ThaT They had passed ThaT
sTage, iT was back To being low man
on The ToTenn pole once again, dream-
ing oT The day ThaT They would arise
and become respecTed by many as
The senior class oT NimiTz High School.
WiTh Three more years leTT To esTab-
lish Their goals and earn Their rewards
as a Viking, iT would noT be an easy
Task To compleTe, buT The senior class
oT I982 would hold TorTh The TiTle oT
"GreaT Leaders" as They worked hard
To mainTain Their goals. Each Treshman
had his own conTribuTion in making
Their TuTure years in high school The
besT years OT Their lives.
