If we can recognize pride, then we can understand what it is to be a part of the Nimitz family. We know that it is winning games, cheering for ourselves even when we are the underdog, a regional berth in the Academic Decathalon, National Merit finalists, the best new library in the school district and the real grit that makes us never give in. The old saying goes that actions speak louder than words, and this year we've been telling everyone our story loud and strong. What is Pride? It is the involvement of groups and teams to make a name for our school. Numbers make our school big and keep us growing, but it is the individuals that make us what we are and give us a confidence in ourselves and an acceptance of who and what we are -the bookworm sitting in the library review- ing calculus notes - Miss Congeniality prancing down the hall saying hi to everyone she sees - the punker with the bleached-out jeans and spiked, two-toned hair bouncing to the rhythm of a song that only he can hear - the jock, swaggering with confidence, books propped on his hip - the girl nursing her first crush by writing his name over and over and over on her books. They are all Nimitz High School, our pride and our spirit and our soul. Proud? You bet! 1 ax es Here's Proof rift 7414! T elieve it or not, some days we would rather be at l school than anywhere else. We were filled with an- ticipation as we woke up without hitting the snooze button knowing that Homecoming or Adopt-A-Child parties were waiting for us at school. As the Homecoming festivities neared rain threatened moving the evening pep rally into the gym without the traditional lighting of the V bonfire. However, the weather cleared up and everything went as scheduled. At the Homecoming parade on Saturday morning, long rows of cars filled with clubs and teams told the story of Homecoming through the years. The night found couples dressed in their finest - brav- ing the weather to support the Vikings' victory over South Crand Prairie Warriors 12-7. Pride became obvious as the Student Council sponsored the Christmas Adopt-A-Child program. Tin cans bearing a child's name were passed around homerooms to collect money. The money collected went to make a special Christmas for an elementary child. All classes generously gave in order to buy that dream toy for their boy or girl. Whether it was a Cabbage Patch doll or a bike, homerooms played Santa Claus to 82 children. School dances livened up the nights with themes of beach parties and street dances. Many clubs and classes used dances as a successful fund raising promotion and as an excuse for fun. It is true that some days were better than others, but when those special days did come, it was a group effort to show as much pride and TLC as we possibly could for our school or others. H omeroom classes played Santa to many elementary students.

After three years of being a class that stood around the sidelines and let the chips fall where they may, seniors crawled out of the woodwork and created the most individual and wildest class Nimitz had seen in a long time. Nearly every activity promoted by the senior class was a first for Nimitz High School. The Fifth Quarter was a time for seniors to get together after an out of town football game to celebrate. A scavenger hunt, senior show, and "Midnight Madness" hunt gave the seniors a break from the ordinary school week. Senior Aid was a project that was put together to raise money for prom. Seniors with musical talent entertained for three hours while their au- dience danced onthe floor of the spectator gym. Although the senior class added new activities, they had to deal with many changes. Unlike the past. the class was not granted a senior week, no exemptions from finals were given. Though traditions were missed, the class com- pensated by making some new traditions of their own ending with a Hawaiian prom theme and a first-ever senior trip to Hawaii. The Class of 1986 was the first to do many new things. Some benefited them academically and some interrupted the school routine and let them break loose. The new traditions created by seniors will be left for many senior classes to come. ? f .ri 5 X Here's Proof l 5:2 We 'LZ 7mm 75mm e know the feeling when we turn in that ultimate research paper, when we make a 71 on an algebra test, when our program runs, when our boss compliments us on a job well done, when we look over a test realizing we know all the answers. We have all experienced the tremen- dous feeling we get when we overcome the obstacles that we thought would beat us. We have all heard the saying "You will thank me later," and through the years we have learned there is truth behind this. It becomes evident when gerunds and particles and proofs and theorems start to make sense. A feeling of accomplishment was not only felt by the 9606 of the junior class who passed the TEAMS test, by the 62 students who were inducted into the National Honor Socie- ty but by all of us - students and faculty. Our academic excellence was enhanced by a curriculum that allowed students to pursue their interests by enabling them to take such courses as computer math, woodshop, homemaking and drafting. Whether it was being proud of ourselves or others, students and faculty took pride in academics. a ll-1 -P if n 'W if f X t ' wg VV 2 7?-Y: fs if 5 f 'sv . Q s t ' 'Q' nv .

Seniors held their usual reign, but the juniors gave them a run for their money. The seniors' enthusiasm influenced the underclassmen, but the individualism of the junior class set itself apart. The juniors sold t-shirts, sponsored a class picnic and had a bowling nightg pep rallies were a perfect example of their enthusiasm. They won the spirit stick with varied themes almost more than any other class. As the sophomores moved into their second year, they became more involved with their school and found the pride through signs and spirit boosters during the football season. As the year progressed, the class became involved with dances and fundraisers such as selling silver and blue balloons that boasted "Nimitz Vikings." The freshmen were a major spark for motivating their upperclassmen at pep rallies. Through the use of flash cards and whistles, the class made an outstanding display sticks, an of their spirit. This earned them three spirit amazing accomplishment for a freshman class. By tradi- "fish." At tion, the upperclassmen looked upon them as first, the name was teken as an insult, but as the year went on, it became something to be proud of. After all, the name "Fish,' had been earned.

They wore blue and grey uniforms with pride as they went to their starting posi- tions, each uniform proudly stating "Nimitz Vikings" set off by a number proclaiming the uniqueness of the individual. Athletic pride is a trait that many schools have, but ours was more than just protecting our names because our ability was representing our school. Long hours spent in practice for that big game, meet, or match proved devotion in itself. It dealt with personal dedication from each member. Teams pulled all the in- dividual talents that each player possessed together to try for the ultimate goal of winning. Besides participating athletes, our supporters were the core of victories. Having a whole section cheering for a player enabled them to run harder, swing quicker, and jump farther. Athletes were not at their highest potential unless there were true Vikings on the other side of the fence letting them know they could do it. Other school uniforms may be blue and grey but "Nimitz Vikings" is our exclusive label that was worn with our own brand of style. l 7 al ,X ? if 1' 5,3 ' ami 1 2 Here's Proof unior Clint Gage is congratulated by an Irving Tiger after the Vikings won 27-0.

Many artists give abstract titles to their work which many people can't grasp, so by giving insightful titles, the average man can grasp the creation. Senior Kirk Seace s co-editor of the Sword and Shield Iunior Belinda Mann created graphic designs never used on the school paper before. The student body at Nimitz didn'f seem to ap- preciate the art work so I can't very well create for people who don't care to soak it up.

'i13"W" T Q"-sian new "5 vm, iwaxzss .ws rtists seek different faces No matter what form is chosen for personal and artistic expression, the message is true and from the heart Every school has its artists, whether they be actors and actresses, dancers, musicians, painters, poets, philoso- phers or sculptors. There are many talented young people throughout the world, but what makes the "true artist" different is not easy to recognize by most. The true artist lives for the sole purpose of creating, ex ressing themselves and, usually teaching through their creations. Artists do not always w e a r d i rt a i n t Y, P ' splotched shirts and ra - ed clothing, and not all artists are painters and sculptors. Musicians are artists as well as dancers and poets. There is, in fact, an art to everything that requires skill. The auto mechanic is an artist as well as the chel in a restaurant. Art brings mixed emo- tions from one individual to the human race as a whole. A work of art can say so much because it usually gives the au- dience many different ideas. A work of art hardly every expresses one solid idea or emotion so it to think on superficial terms. So art is not for everyone. The artists at Nimitz were often considered weird around school. laying at the Senior Aid concert, Senior Andrew Aguirre shares a bit of his artistic talent with the student body.

Those Jneople could be numbe b society or the world andy are only able Because they were on a different wave length, they were often shunned by many. That is what an artist can take in and toss out because an artist focuses on truth, and worldly matters seem to hinder the exploration of the truth. Sophomore Tamera Read was one of Nimitz's more talented artists. She works mainly with paints and pencils. She was ac- cepted to the Arts Magnet at Booker T. Washington High School in Dallas and no longer attends Nimitz. She explained why she left, saying, "The students body at Nimitz didn't seem to appreciate the art work so I canit very well create for peo- ple who don't soak it up." Senior Kirk Seace ex- plained why some people do not appreciate some art. "Many artists," he said, "give abstract titles to their work which many people can't grasp, so by giving insightful titles, the average man can grasp the creation."

At least one member of the family knows how to play but obviously never had the desire to be a professional or serious musician. But, in one out of every ten families, one can find a player with a heart full of sound and rhythm and one who wants to be a performing artist. There were many such individuals dwelling in- side the walls of Nimitz, people with, the desire and will to play. Because original material. Their goal was to sound as cheap as possible.

Keeping a band together proved to be one of the harder tasks of playing. The Ski Bros. was kind of a joke band. They performed parodies of their songs as well as song more than once before recording it. They had a large following, but they couldn't keep it go- ing. "The guitarist wanted to practice! After Seniors George Esquivel lsaxj, David Mitchell ldrumsj, and Clint Carter fguitarj. The young band quickly began playing at banquets and parties in and around Irving. They played a good mixture of cover tunes and all of their songs were danceable. The band also acquired an agent to book shows for them around Dallas and Irving. Being a musician, one would soon find out how difficult it is to stay in a working band situation. Not only does a band need to have good polish- ed sound, the band members must be com- patible. A band cannot expect to work well together if there isn't a friendly working atmosphere. What is it that a band needs to achieve their goals? Carter answered the question saying, "A good band has to look good, definitely sound good, and, of course, stay together."

"I thought it was wonder- ful," Carrie Skeen, jour- nalism adviser, said. "It felt good to know that we were doing something helpful."

"We had good sup- port from the rest of the class, and with that we achieved what we set out to do," said Raper. The slow climb to success took four years and it paid off at the end of that wonderful fourth year. The story of the 1986 senior class was trulgf one of rags to riches. tory by C ad Rueffer.

Initial impressions SAT, ACT provide preview s most students slept off late night parties, a group of seniors awoke to spend possibly the four most important hours of their lives. During those four hours, the Scholastic Aptitude Test ISATJ or the American Col- legiate Test IACTJ tested students over college level concepts. The tests were used by most colleges as an en- rollment requirement. "As I entered the testing room I was wor- ried and scared be- cause l realized my test performance could determine my college choice and any scholarships I might receivef' Senior Deb- bie Hendrix said. After completing the test, students waited about six weeks for the results which most students thought was too long. Once a student received their scores they had the option to take either test again because the tests were administered several times during the year. Those who chose to retake either test decided to do so hop- ing that their scores would improve. By the time the late night party people awoke, a group of seniors worried about how they had per- formed. Story by Wen- dy Furguson Let me tell you . . .

During a six weeks perio , seniors prepared a preliminary outline, thesis, bibliography cards, note cards, rough drafts, and the final typed copy with footnotes. "I think we should have more time to complete the paper since we have to do it on our own time," Senior Amy Polous said. Besides the time period, other restric- tions also caused seniors to dread their term paper. "The main thing I don't like is that we are given very little classtime to work on the paper," Senior Heath Daniels said. Senior Annie Iohn disliked the stress that the term paper caused. "The paper counts so much and there are not always sources readily available to back up the thesis," Iohn said. Although seniors found many disadvan- tages to the term paper, they also found some advantages. "It increases your library skills," Polous said. "The paper allows you to be a critic and provides good ex- erience for college," Fohn said. "I think the term paper is a good way to im rove writing abiffties necessary for college, but I don't think it should fail a student for the six weeks," Senior Deanna Devine said.

Q High and mi ht Seniors 8 enjoy year of a lifetime s they walked through the big blue doors on their last first day of school, they were flooded with memories of their first day as high school students. They remembered how enormous the school was and how crowded the halls seemed. As they scooted farther down the hall on front of the cafeteria they passed by a swarm of seniors that seemed to tower over them. The recalled how much they looked up to them and thought to themselves, "Gosh, those are seniors!" As the new seniors walked proudly through the halls of "their high school" they could feel those short people look- ing up at them, and each chuckled at what they were thinking. No doubt, being a senior was excellent. After all, how much fun, friend- ship, and privileges can one person handle? As the year flew by, the activities and good times seemed endless. It all kicked off with a six hour scavenger hunt and continued with the fifth quarter and the senior play. Their high school careers were rounded off with prom, gradua- tion, and eight glory- filled days in Hawaii. Finally, after saying their good-byes, every senior went his separate way with countless hap- py memories of his friends, Nimitz, and their senior year. Story by Melinda Iones. Let me tell you . . .

M any worries were placed upon the already heavy shoulders of seniors as graduation got closer and closer. Most put up a big front when asked about col- lege. "I'm going to par- ty in college" was the remark most often said by- college-bound seniors. The question raised here is, "Can one keep up with all the hard work without feeling the pressure to party all the time?" To most, all college is about is artying. Senior Darrell, In ram devised a plan onghow he would handle the situation. "I've got it all planned out," said Ingram. "My first year I'm going to study, after that I will party." College doesn't last just one year, but get- ting past that first year, or even the first week of the first year, is the difficult part. Students going to major universities were the ones most worried about that first week. Donna Mason, who will be attending the University of Texas at Austin said, "I think college will be fun. I'm just a little worried about all the people, and whether I can han- dle the pressure put on by them to study." The thing seniors most anticipated about college was the massive herd of the op- posite sex. "I look forward to meeting all of the sophisticated, intellec- tual women in col- lege," said David Kim w o will be attending Southern Methodist University. Going to college is a big transition to be made after having seniority over Nimitz, but the transition will be fun for most. Story by David Mitchell. Parsons-Puente Let me tell you . . .

Some very young, very curious first graders became acquain- tances, and as time went by these youngsters came to be the very best of friends. Many friendships started off perfectly right from the beginning. "I first met Paul lEvans1 while playing king of the mountain in first grade," Senior Troy Pickett said. "We've been best friends ever since." "I met Wade Raper because we got into a fight on the playground," said Senior Tammy Pain. "Later on we were on patrol together and we have been friends since then."

After the last diploma had been handed out and the closing prayer at the graduation ceremony was given, these life long friends held on to each other, realizing they would no longer be together like they had been in the past years. "Saying good-bye to all my friends is the hardest thing I've ever had to do," Senior Paula McRae said. "Gosh, l still remember back when David lMit- chelll brought his drum set for show and tell," said Senior Wade Raper. "Saying good-bye to him will be tough." Graduation night was the last time this Senior class would be together as a whole, for from here on there would be some- one missing. Story by Melinda Iones. P' - .g Q ,Z , 1, , , tv is ,l v.

I L I VR if Senior Pep Rallies Seen-Yurs! Seen-Yurs! Seniors yell for spirit As beach balls bubbled off heads, a rainbow um- brella shaded a flock of zinc-oxided noses. Seniors sported leis and Hawaiian shirts to carry out the beach party theme. Many other themes were used through- out the football season, such as pirate day, royalty day, blue and gray day, bathrobe day and Christmas in October. The themes added the extra punch that has always filled the senior section. "I was really sur- prised at all the off- the-wall themes seniors came up with, but I really liked it when we kept the themes a secret. The underclassmen didn't know what to ex- pect," said Senior Daniel Nix. Throughout the years of high school students wait the chance to participate in the festive activity in the senior section. The freshman class was unfamiliar with the attitude in the air during the pep rallies. "I was surprised at how the seniors led the spirit at the pep rallies and set good examples of how the spirit at school should be shown," said Freshman Shonda Prye. "The seniors show what loving your school is all about. I can't wait to show my spirit as a senior." As students move up in grades they get closer to the long awaited chance to show their en- thusiasm. Gaining the confidence to par- ticipate and act a lit- tle more spirited came with seniority. Senior year meant the chance to act wild and crazy and enjoy it. There are some seniors that feel the pep rallies are a little out of hand, that they are not centered on what they should be as Elizabeth Ioseph said, "I enjoy the pep rallies, but I don't get all that involved as the other seniors do. It seems to be more class competition, and I always thought that pep rallies were for the spirit of our school." Whether or not it is class competition or spirit for the whole school, the seniors set the pace for the fall and a standard for classes that follow. Story by Shannan Long.

The underclassman officers raised money in many ways. They had car washes, cand sales, dances, and many other regular fund raisers. "I am very pleased with the way our class is financially," So ho- more president Rtatt Cartwright said. "Right now I'm just a little worried about our spirit." While one watched a pep rally, there seemed to be a big em- phasis placed on class spirit. The officers were.the ones who got the spirit going with ideas such as the "Yell Raisers," a bunch of juniors who seemed to get veryl spirited after osing t e first couple of pep' rallies to the seniors. But spirit was not only winning pep rallies. S irit was the feeling ofl being a part of the class you were in. "We are trying to create more spirit as a celebration of being sophomores," sai secretary Sonja Piper, "not just to win a e rally during football season." The officers also organized many ac- tivities for the classes such as class picnics, football or softball matches against other classes, or going out to eat or to a midnight movie. "Our class picnic was really fun," said junior vice president Stephanie Mashman. "It was a great way to start the year." The sponsors were a big help to the officers in organizing activities and coaching the fund raisers. Through their help their relation- ships grew, and they became more of a family. "The officers worked well together and very hard. They all had good ideas,' junior sponsor Dottie Rambo said. Prom was a long way off to most under- classmen, and the of- ficers didn't seem to be very worried about it. doing ver? well, and by the en of this year we should have S7,000," said Cart- wright early in the year. "We will have a great prom." "We're a good class with lots of unique people," Piper stated. "Soon we will unite together as one instead of many." Once the year was off to a good start, the fundraisers and special events were greeted w i t h a h e a r t y welcome. Getting in- volved in what the school had to offer was often the ticket to mak- ing the sometimes long sc ool days less hectic. "Being the freshman class vice cfmresident really helpe me too get into the flow of igh school things. I want to help my class get through their high school years as smoothly and as far as they can," said Freshman Lance Yuzbick.

The school was much larger and the classes were tougher. Freshmen had to group quickly. . Miany- freshmen started off on the wrong foot like Bryan Rivers. "I was late on the first day of school. The day, needless to say, turned out to be reallylfun and a lot bet- ter t an I expected," he said. -Most freshmen were late to their classes because of the lack of knowledge of the school. "Nimitz was so big that I got lost dur- ing every passing pleriodf' said Linner mson. From junior high school to high school things ha really 1 changed. The rules were still about the same, but the teachers were so unusual and the work was harder. April Threlfall was surprised. "I didn't think high school was going to be that dif- erent," she said. "The study habits were more difficult, and it is really up to us to do the work." Now junior high rivalries from Bowie and Lamar no longer 7 8 Abercrombie-Alvis existed. They had to stand together to pro- tect themselves as freshmen. "The rivalries be- tween hi schools are so muc more in- volved and rougher comlpared to junior hig ," said Tim Simpkins. As they glo through the rest of t eir school years, their first day of igh school will never be the same as it was when they started out as freshmen. Story by Shannan Long.

Thoughts ran through my head about what excuse I should use and which one always seemed to work best. The next thought was "Should I face up to my parents or should I run for my life?", but of course, I picked the wrong oneg I stayed. As I stepped from the car, I dprayed that they woul let this one pass. It wasn't that big a deal, but that wasn't what they thought. I got the third degree. It was awful. Besides being ground- ed until. the en of my senior year or my life, which ever came first, everything I had ever treasured in my life was taken away: the car keys, the phone, the 'I1.V., and visitors. The only thin that I was allowed to do was go to school. I decided I would outsmart my parents by 'oining every club and extra- curricular activity that the school had to offer. Smart thinkin', huh? My parents were one step ahead of meg they'd alreadg' signed me up for a us pass. They were actually go- ing to make me ride the bus! This was all too awful to believe. All this was happenings S to me -sweet little, in- nocent- me. This was really the end of my life. I The first two weeks were absolutely terri- ble.

When cau t, however, they suf ered the conse- quences. 1 Teachers- used various methods to make sure students stayed alert Qin class. They did this by con- stantly asking ques- tions throughout lec- tures. This worked will you? fairly well because students were aware that their turn to answer a question could come up at any time and knowing something about what was going on in a class discussion was better than being totally lost. Despite how a stu- dent c ose to spend his time in class, it seemed that time slowly crept by when a pop quiz or special event was to take place. However, when a major test with a hundred questions and two essays was given time seemed to 8 2 Boysen-Bryant fly by. "It's funny when I am in a class l like time goes fast, but when l am in a class I don't like time goes slow," said Senior Iamie Victory. Regardless of the slow movement of time and the conse- quences of not listen- ing in class, most students grinned and bore it or took their chances. Five for ten minutes of sleep or cramming for a major test was essential at times.

S o many choices on such a little ring: colors, stones, classes, initials, diamonds, sizes, and designs. The possibilities now of having a senior ring like any other is prob- ably one in a hundred. In the past years, schools and univer- sities around the coun- try voted on one style of a senior ring that all graduates would wear. But, like everything else in the world, this changed and senior rings keep changing. In the early 1900's the class ring evolved and took the place of the class pin. The first class rings were crude and consisted of a shank with the symbol of the old class pin at- tached to the top of the ring. These early rings became so popular that manufacturers refined their techniques to add to the rings' populari- ty. Stones were added and more intricate dies were cast permitting much more detailed work on the rings. "My mother bought my class ring for me for Christmas. It cost S150. The ring has my name on one side and Cosmetology on the other," Iunior Sheryl Hill said. However, other students had difficulty in finding ways to pay for their ring. While a student, history teacher Carol Pier, worked at 35 cents an hour babysitting to earn the S17 needed to pay for her senior ring. Pier said, "I was so ex- cited the day I picked up my ring from school. I wore it all the way home waiting to show my mother. As I rushed to the house, it got caught in the front d o o r a n d w a s demolished. I never wore the ring again but l cherish it because of the memories." Alan Shepard, America's first man in space, also cherishes his ring. Since the only per- sonal possession he took along on his historic flight was his ring from the U.S. Naval Academy, it served as a good luck charm. At the end of each year, the seniors at Nimitz High School pass over their position to the juniors. This ceremony is called "Senior Preview," meaning a special way to say good-bye. As the seniors ap- proach, their rings are turned so that the in- scription is readable only to them. After all have passed through the arclhvay, they will turn their rings so that the inscription is readable to everyone, signifying to all that they have successfully completed those re- quirements, obliga- tions, and respon- sibilities necessary for high school gradua- tion.

"I was in a hurry to get to school, when a policeman pulled me over," admitted Sophomore Erin Daniels, "but handling the ticket was easy compared to handling my parents when they found out."

"I need a chocolate milkshake and fries from McDonald's to keep me going," said Soghomora handa Do lyanski. T e average student spent around S20 a week on Junk food. Many stu ents blew more money in the drive-thru window than anywhere else each week. "I hate to eat food that's good for me, so I spend around S25 a week on junk food," said Sophomore Dana Bailey. Parents don't always agree with their chil 's eating habits because there is usually food at home. But students could not resist that Big Mac around the corner.

They share their innermost secrets and the laughter and tears of growing up. But they're1UST FRIENDS. "Ernie 1Cote1 and I have been friends for so long," said 1unior Shannon Ingrim. "We're always laughing and having fun." With high school romances chan ing from week-to-weelc, it is comforting for these friends to know that their friendly relations will persevere. "Bertha 1Villareal1 and I don't keep an secrets from eacff other," said Sopho- more Iason Black. "Of all my high school friendships, I know this one will last." W e oft e n fi n d ourselves uncomfort- able with the structure of certain relation- ships. Too often people et caught up in being friends with whoever is popular to like at the time. Some friend- ships, however, are based on the com- patibilit and trust that allows them not to be just another passing fad. "Drew 1Erben1 is like a brother to me," said Iunior Cindy Mee. "We have our ups and have our ups and downs just like any other friendship, but the one thing that stands true is that we will always be friends." Although the ques- tion "Are you two dating?" often arises, the reply is always "No, we're just friends." But to say that these dpeople are "just frien s" doesn't do them justice. Being a coutple of friends who spen .endless time together, the relation- ship established was one of greater than simply being friends. They are BEST FRIENDS, and that's enou h.

R2 many students have before, four-wheel Wish Students feel pressure for rides W ith high school th e r e c o m e s more responsiblity and a more active social life. With a social life there comes a common question among teen- agers on the weekends, "How am I going to get to the mall or movies tonight?" Parents are always willing to ive rides to their kids, gut there are a few drawbacks with that, as Freshman Tim Simplins said. "lt is so embarrass- ing when you go out with girls, ' Simplins said, "and your parents have to drive you and pick you up in front of alllyour friends." here are some teenagers that have too much Bride so they ride wit their friends. "lt's nice to ride with all your buddies, but the car is always so crowded. At least peo- ple don't look at you unny, like they do when your iparents drop you of ," said Sophomore Carl one of the long to be luc y ones, who owns ' able to get car. There a car or is the family will be more respon- Sibilny. The parents depend on the driver to make mature, responsible decisions. As Steve Fletcher said, "It's alright being able to drive all my friends around on t e week- ends, but there is more responsiblity, because if something goes wron , the parents will ask the driver all the questions." When you finally come up with the nerve to ask that special someone out for pizza or a movie, having transportation problems is something we can all do without. You can show up with Mom and face the ridicule, or you can double up with a friend and risk your safety. Either alternative is a rotten substitute. "I can remember having to ride with r one sta e of my life I definitely won't miss." No matter what type of transportation is chosen there is always a catch. Maybe it would be easier to walk to the desired destination. Story by Shannan Long.

"There are only two fi places where you can go from freezing cold to boiling hot in less than five minutes. One is a hot tub at the North Pole and the other is this school building," said Sopho- more Steven Baxley. Another exciting event that everyone looks forward to is the air conditioner drop- ping dead as soon as the weather turns hot I and humid.

Students received the booklet after pay- ing S5 to cover testing costs. "I prepared for the PSAT by go- ing over the bulletin and following the advice given by my teachers," Martin said. "This helped my performance on the test overall," Kevin Carr photo. Steps of preparation Tests make SAT, graduation easier I f two figs equal one gag, then how many figs equal 'A gag? Baf led? So were many juniors and sophomores when they saw a similar question on the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test 1PSAT1 in Oc- tober. For three hours the PSAT tested students over verbal and math concepts and helped prepare them for the Scholastic Ap- titude Test 1SAT1. "I took the PSAT to get used to the format of standardized tests and to prepare myself for the SAT," Iunior Donna Sherritt said. Students began testing at 8:30 a.m., with juniors in the auditorium and sophomores in the cafeteria. To better equip students for the PSAT, Iunior Counselor Paula Wyman held a workshop to answer students' questions about standardized tests. Also in October, the juniors became the first class required to pass the Texas Educa- tional Assessment of Minimal Skills 1TEAMS1 for gradua- tion. The TEAMS replaced the Texas Assessment of Basic Skills 1TABS1 as a graduation require- ment. "The TEAMS and TABS were equiva- lently easy, so I don't know why it replaced the TABS," Sherritt said. Students were given six hours - three hours on two days - to complete the two- section test. When the results came in, 96 per- cent of the juniors who took the test passed both sections. Being concerned with what figs and gags were clouded the logical answer that V2 gag equals 'A fig. Story y Wendy Furguson.

My heart dropped. Mal, first thought was, " hat homework?" The second flash was, "What is my excuse?" I could tell her I lost it, or someone stole it, or . . . Then I heard it, "last call for homework." The first thing that popped out was, "lt was here a minute agoyi Then came the ques- tions - "Where did you see it last?" 'Where could it have gone?", followed by some not-so-hot answers. She fell for it. l could turn it in at 3:30. What excuse will I use next time? Every student has excuses to use for forgotten homework. "The wind blew it away. I chased it for miles, but I just was not fast enough." said Sophomore Susan Waggener. "I left it in the or- thodontist's office," said Freshman Iill McDonald. "My bus was hi- lacked by homework ungry Iranians!" said Sop omore Karen Berry. The next time that that surprise excuse is needed, just remember to watch out for that all knowing teacher. "The dog doesn't eat everybody's home- work," Coach Iinx White said. Story by Dana Pyfer I t is impossible to fool all of the teachers all of the time no matter how realistic the excuse may be. Sophomore Todd Gaston finds out the hard way that all knowing teachers react to such false statements. "I 'pier' into their eyes and that always tells me the truth," said history teacher Carol Pier.

Ter- minology has changed as students have grown older and more mature, but "going steady" has always had its special feeling. "The thing I like most about having Troy as a boyfriend is the close- ness of our relationship. l feel that nothing can come between us. It is a neat feeling knowing that he is always there for me," said Sopho- more Vicki Harris. High school relation- ships usually last longer than the two-week junior high flings, but students found that see- ing someone seriously took lots of time and effort. "When one of my friends asks me to go somewhere with her, I have to say no because l'm pretty much de- voted to Trent," said Freshman Dorothy Hammer. To contradict the fun of companionship, freedom meant much more to some. Many students felt content with dating around. Of course, this also meant that there were those Saturday nights when watching "Love Boat" was the highlight of the evening. One advantage of steadily dating of the matter someone is that one is never left sitting at home without a date on Saturday night. "Most of the time on Saturday nights we go to high school rodeos, and some Friday nights we go out to eat or to the pits la cowboy hangoutf' said Iunior Ryan Kennedy. Those who have that steady, special someone around to share their high school days with enjoyed the relationship and the problems that are entangled with be- ing someone's girlfriend or boyfriend. Others that played the field were happy with the friendships they shared with others.

Senior Anthony Montgomery repeated these words to his 2nd period Home and Famiy Living class. Montgomery acted as the minister in a dramatized wedding scene with his other classmates, "I was as nervous as if it had been the real thing," Montgomery said. The beautiful bride in one of the mock weddings was acted out by Senior Paula McRae. "I think that acting out the ceremony as if it was really happening made us all consider mar- riage an imgortant step in ife,"Mc ae said. A l t h 0 u g h th e couples that were united were not exact- ly "in love," taking part in the ceremony was enjoyed by most of them. Senior Natalie Limberg said, "I had a more realistic idea of marriage after we com- pleted the two weeks of study." Story 1 by Lynda Kain. Seniors Paula McRae and Darrell lragram exchange vows. During the reception, the bride an oom rformed all the necessary! trsd tions. "It was so emghrrassllxlg when we had to put ca a in each other's mouths," McRae said, "It was also funny when we shook hands instead of kissing."

Helen Bradley 'Fx'-" Lame Teachers advance masked Professors perform for their primary impressions The first day of school begins, and so does the game. Teacher to student, student to teacherg the relationship either starts well, badly, or it doesn't really start at all. All teachers have a presentation of them- selves ready for the first day, and whether they choose to be wonderful or wonder- fully cruel is totally their initial decision. English teacher Vikki Massengill said, "I like to be honest with my students, so the first thing I tell them if they work hard they will pass." The honest approach was taken with many teachers. They honest- ly wanted their students to work until their backs snapped. It wasn't as though they wanted to be slave driversg they only wanted to appear that way. Prof. Carol Pier, history teacher, said, "I tried to appear meaner than you know what, but I ended up rather nice? There was also the aspect of the teacher giving an inch and the class taking a mile. "Ifl had a choice, l'd rather to have been considered mean as opposed to nice because students think that a nice teacher is one who will let them get away with any- thing," said English teacher David Long. Whatever the case of the first impression may have been, the in- itial reaction will never change. As long as teachers continue to know the terribly evil thoughts of their students, the first im- pression will always remain important. In the same light, as long as students continue to decipher the inten- tions of their teachers, first impressions will remain to be the laughs of the future.

While some students shoved their books into their lockers, thinking that they would have time in the morning to finish an assignment, others dragged piles of books home or to the libraries to master a lesson by endless hours of studying. A special group of us, through hard work and determina- tion, made it to regionals of the Academic Decathalon en- abling them to advance to state finals in San Antonio and finish in the top ten. The valedictorian and the salutatorian along with the other top ten finalist were deservedly applauded at the senior awards ceremony. Scholarship winners were also recognized for their hard work. Highlighted honor roll lists were placed in almost every single classroom to show those students who were able to maintain a 7 point average or higher.

Not a bad thing to be when it comes to extra help in a hard subject. Some knew from the first day of their class that they would or would not get along with a teacher, but for others it took certain steps and time to establish and execute an academic relation- ship with an educator and become a true Brown-noser. 1 Volunteer to stay after class. A teacher always ap- ' preciates a student who cleans the erasers, washes the chalkboard and grades papers. Although teacher's pets tend to be prone to ridicule, results in the grade book made up for it. 2 Don't forget your manners. If a teacher asks you a 0 yesfno question, reply with a "yes ma'am," or "no ma'am." lExcept, ofcourse, if your teacher happens to be a male-.J An educated adult does not condone "yea" or ifnaW.ny 3 Be honest. If you truly did not do your homework, 0 'fess up to your responsibility, unless of course you have a good excuse. Remember, "My dog ate my homework" is obviously outdated so try to be little more creative. 4 Remember their birthdays. Bringing a cake and a 0 few gifts is a small price to pay for missing a class period. Simply don't ask how old they are, but come bearing gifts such as diamond rings, new cars or a trip for two to Aruba. 5 Acknowledge their presence outside of school. If you see 0 your teacher at the grocery store or at the mall, don't ig- nore them. They not only have lives after your class period, but they also wear jeans, go to the movies and eat out at restaurants. 6 Ask interesting questions. If a question pops into your U head that will add to a class discussion, raise your hand. A teacher will respect a student who has new facts to offer or an opinion about a controversial subject. 7 Compliment their appearance. Take notice of a new out- 0 fit or hairstyle. Everyone likes to be complimented on the way they look. And don't forget, it takes up class time. 8 Follow the rules of the class. If a certain teacher has 0 quirks about gum chewing, passing notes or brushing your hair, don't argue. A good student will follow the rules without question. He also remembers that it is good to give adults a sense of power now and then. 9 Be courteous.

Lack of sleep was caused by working late at a part-time job or putting off homework until late at night. Chad Windham photo. How to Cram 1 Get organized. Bring home all books, notes or ' reviews and organize them for easier access to information. 2 Lock yourself in a quiet room. Don't be tempted ' away from your books by outside distractions. That means no radio, no TV and no telephone. Study sitting up. An old superstition says that a stu- ' dent should study in a same position that he is go- ing to be tested in because it helps him remember better. This may not be true but it can't hurt. 4 Stock up on coffee, coke or chocolate. This will ' help you stay awake in case your cramming goes past your bedtime. 5 Be positive, you know the information. Go over all ' the material you lost sleep over the night before. 1 2 6 Academic Survival.

Steve Mashman photo. 10 steps to survive taking notes lthough we do not condone inattention or wandering minds during lectures, we realize from experience that "getting out our note-talking aparati" can get a little old. So here are a few suggestions to help you in your fight against monotony. 1 Do your nails. lt is about time for a manicure and ' there is not better time than during a boring lec- ture. Don't forget your file, clippers and polish. not moved from the last time you looked. Well, in- vestigate the matter. See if you can actually catch the hands moving. 2 Stare at the clock. You swear the clock has l 3 Change the topic of discussion. Ask a question that ' you know your teacher has a definite opinion about. Remember a highly controversial subject can get your classmates and teacher in an uproar and therefore time will pass-sit back and enjoy. 4 Write a conversational letter. You see that person 0 sitting next to you - have a conversation on paper. Write "What have you been up to?" and they will answer "Not much. You?" and so on. Besides if this per- son is a member of the opposite sex that you have been trying to get to know it makes a great icebreaker. 5 Clean out your purse or wallet. Get rid of that every- 0 day junk that piles up such as candy wrappers and old letters. After you've finished reorganizing look at your pic- tures and rearrange the photos so that you see your more recent friends then count your money. 6 Do assignments for another class. Do some extra 0 credit work for subject that your average is suffering. You will really be on top ofthings. 7 Daydream. Think about all the places you'd rather be 0 and all things you could be doing. It is a good way of wasting time but try and stay a little alert in case the teacher asks you a question. 8 Average your grades. Find out your academic stand- 0 ing in each of your classes. Academic students are found doing this quite often because it eases their minds while their not listening. 9 Draw on your bookcovers. Put your mark on your 0 bookcovers with pictures, boyfriends or girlfriends names or your profound artwork. 1 0 Take a nap. Since you stayed up extra late, take a 0 snooze,. But be careful of a clever teacher. They might not wake you when the bell rings and you could arise two periods later with another class - what a nighmare! J27 Il I 6 .' '.....

If the answer is no and you would like to learn how to be lazy, put things off and be irrespon- sible, here is a list of suggestions to help you make time for everything but homework. 1 Watch TV. The television set in an easy way to get ' sidetracked from one's responsibilities. But if you do have some good intentions, at least open your books in front of you and try to do a little when a commercial comes on. 2 Clean your room. Aren't you tired of stepping over ' clothes, books or whatever else is lying around your room? Well, you might as well get in there and try a little organization. Don't forget the closet, Behind the furniture and under the bed. 3 Go shopping. The mall is calling you. This is the ' last day of a big sale so you have to go. Besides, you can't go to school, homework complete or incomplete, without something to wear. 4 Call a friend. Dial a long-winded friend that you ' have not talked to in a long time and find out what they have been doing for the last year or so. It is impor- tant to keep in touch with people that you don't get to see very often. 5 Take inventory of the refrigerator. Before any ' academic strain you need nutrition, don't you? Try to scope out the fridge, cabinets and freezer to see if your mom has hidden anything good for a special occasion. 6 Accidentally fall asleep. This is very simple. First, ' go to bed fully clothed and then place your book over your face. This will appear that you did make an at- tempt to study and who knows, maybe you can absorb some information while you sleep - like nuclear fall out. I7 Give your mother a hand with the housework. 0 Your mom has been trying to get you to vacuum, take out the trash and wash dishes all your life. Surprise her. If you really get industrious, wash the family car and clean out the garage. 8 Pick a fight with a family member. Not only does ' this release tension and frustration, but it will take a good hour or so. Warning: This could lead to groun- dings, withholdings of funds and present situations when you have nothing else to do but homework. 9 Read a magazine. Tell yourself you will start your ' homework after you read a magazine or two. Then search the house for all you can find, even ifit's Headers' Digest, National Geographic, or Good Housekeeping. 1 0 Take care of your pet. Rover hasn't been bathed ' in weeks and the evidence of this lingers behind him. And what about that poor goldfish. He doesn't deserve algae growing on the side of his bowl. Take care of your pets even though itis not a real pleasant ex- perience. Anything is better than homework, isn't it? 1 2 8 Academic Survival Get it rolling 1 Plan out your activities every day. Draw a line 0 down a clean sheet of paper and label one side "Things I want to do" and the other "Things I need to do." This will help you situate your priorities so you can take care of them first. 2 Set long term goals. Someone has to be president. 0 Why not you? Look into the future and set some positive goals no matter how far away they may seem. Smile. What is a face if itis not smiling and looking 0 forward to a new day? A good way to get motivated is to roll up your sleeves, have a cheerful attitude and dive in!

Once the initial' voting was Completed, three nominees for each title were selected by means of the number of nominations received. The faculty and administrators then looked over the information sheet that listed each nominee's activities and honors for their four years of high school. They voted for Mr. and Miss NHS without truly knowing who they chose because the information was sent around with no names, on- ly facts. Speculation ended at the Senior Awards Assembly in May as Valedictorian Heath Daniels and Salutatorian Rachel Batto were named as Mr. and Miss NHS. "I was very surprised when I heard my name because I wasn't expecting it," Daniels said. "I enjoyed being named Mr. NHS more than being valedictorian because I ad- mired people who had received it in the past." During his four years at Nimitz, Daniels was a member of the National Honor Society, serving as president for two years, ranked first in his class for four years, was a member of TRON, Student Council, Spanish and Latin clubs, Number Sense, placed first at UIL District Ready Writing, and was named Who's Who in Math. Like Daniels, Batto was a member of the National Honor Society, serving as secretary and treasurer, was a member of Mu Alpha Theta. the Academic Decathlon, Bard, was a National Merit Scholar and was named Who's Who in Spanish. "Heath and Rachel are the two most exceptional, spec- tacular students I've worked with. They are both brilliant, personable, ideal young peo- ple," Vice principal Linda Ivins said.

The way a room is set up many reflect the way students attitudes and behavior are presented. "Be quiet, sit down, prepare to take notes" were often heard by students from teachers all over the building before the bell ever rang. But there is a major dif- ference between a teacher who will allow students to get comfortable and those who keep their rooms look- ing like cellblocks. An em t yrn that soon will be fllllezf with lots of noise and activity the newspaper room soon bustl- ing with conversations of what topics to present in the next paper, the homemak- ing rooms coming alive with the smells of good things cooking or the busy whir of sewing machines. Some classes present a more free environment allowing talk- ing and movement. Students did relax more noticably in these comfor- table rooms. There is no sit down and stare at the chalk board here. They all have a personal touch, something unique brought to a bare room b the teacher who presidedlthere. "In my classroom the students seem to be in a more comfortable and relaxed mood,"' science teacher Diane McLean said. "Maybe it is the way l decorate my room. It is a lit- tle different." The geometric figures that hang from the ceiling or the atomic models on the cabinets are all clues about what goes on the rooms. Each room develops its own H ow far is it to South Africa, Sri Lanka or New Zealand? It was an easy question to answer with a map like this commanding attention on the wall in Carol Pier's history room.

"Wade was a gift from a good friend who is also a teacher," journalism teacher Carrie Skeen said of her rubber chicken clock hanging over the black- board.

Although many students thought teachers assigned oral reports to make their life miserable and embar- rass them, others reasons were behind the assignment of an oral report. "Learning to speak in front of people with planned thoughts prepares you for the real world," American History teacher Helen Bradley said. Students provided addi- tional reasons for oral reports. "Oral reports are assigned to teach students to be more self-assured and in hopes that it will build self- esteem," Iunior Iennifer Iohnson said. "I think oral reports let the teacher getr to know the students better because their personality shows more than in their writing," Iunior Donna Sherritt said. When a teacher assigned an oral report, he may have had goals they hoped the students to achieve when they finished the report. "I want to students learn how to do their own in- vestigation beyond the textbook and research to find the answers to their questionsf' Bradley said. To some students the whole procedure of an oral report was hard, but others thought certain parts were most difficult. "The hardest part is when you first get up in front of the class and say your first few sentences," Sherritt said. Even though the bad points stacked higher than the good, stud'ents thought there was a good side to oral reports. i "Even though you might not learn anything from the report itself, you'll be less, nervous the next time," Iohnson said. Oral reports designed to teach self-confidence, esteem, not r anxiety Unbelievable as it seems, the sweaty palms, shaky hands, weak knees, and the stammering voice go away and the person realizes that everyone in the class will be in his -shoes one day.

Tube Atternatives 4 Talk on the phone. Call an old friend you have not talked to in a long time. They are probably just as bored as you. 4 Sleep. While you have some free time catch up on those z's you've been missing by doing homework late at night after all the good shows are over. 4 Eat. This is number one on the priority list. Don't waste any time. Dive into the refrigerator for your favorite snack. 4 Exercise. Now that you've eaten, work off those extra pounds, get into shape. Take a jog or ride your bike to a friend's house. 4 Listen to the radio. Get into the Top Forty hits. Don't miss out on the latest songs. For a kick, give the Kidd a call. 4 Do your homework. You can hear your algebra book calling your name. It wouldn't hurt to get your assignments done the night before instead of doing them hurriedly the next morning. 4 Go gout. Remember those people that you call Hfriendsu? Well, don't be anti- social. Go to McDonald's with one of them for an ice cream or hamburger. 4 Have a conversation with your Mom or Dad. You know the times your Dad says, "What are you going to do with your life?" This time instead of giving him that "leave me alone" look, talk about the future. 4Beat up your little brother or sister. Iust remember the time they got into your makeup or flattened your football. Straighten them out a little while you have some spare time. 4 Write a letter. You remember the per- son you have promised to write at least ten times? You have started but never finished.

Another feature of the Roamer is his 4 ability to know exactly how far to turn the dial r to find another station or which button to push without looking. Since it is impossible for a radio station to play exactly what each listener wants to hear, ,.1. 1 , s Q- 4 fi the Roamer will never be cured of his constant '- affliction. hen many students jump into their cars some say the first thing they did after turning the key is looking for something good on the radio.

Schoendienst was wearing a new pair of shoes and the added friction of the shoes caused her to fall, breaking both her wrists. Teachers also had their share of bad luck. English teacher David Long was riding his motorcycle to school when a truck tried to side-swipe him. In an attempt to avoid a major acci- dent he jumped the curb. Long's leg was injured, but after a couple of weeks of using a cane he was back to normal.

Bill Bob Quakeninhisboots has gone to the office for the first time in his sc olastic life. He had accidentally spilled li uid paper on the half completed grammar worksheet of a rather tall, cliallucinating intellec- tual. The intellectual became angered for having three minutes of his valuable time "whited-out' in micro-seconds. Bill Bob's advice to the then standing, then steamin intellectual was to let him get another worksheet from the teacher and gmt he was sorry. The intellectual with the red face and eyes wide told ol' Bill boy his ad- vice, "Blow it out our ear!" and proceeded to ummel Bill!y's shocked face. The action ofyhis peer impressed Billy ang thus pressured him to beat the intellectual in his face. The teacher, hearing a ruckus light years from her desk, looked up from her Acme Advice Catalogue and stomped her foot hoping to em- pJhas1ize the advice she then read from page 36 of her catalogue, "Stop it! r e se!" Surprisingly, that most profound selection of advice did not stop the pummeling which had spread across the room into the hall, however she did not reach the wanting ears of Suzi Alwaysrespectsherelders who upon being pressured by an out-of- eer force stopped breathing and died. Billy was sent to the office on-the-hill and was advised of his bad choice of friends and that he should not succumb to the pressure of his peers four advice is betterj. So thus is the wa of the teen universe, although maybe not as silly, but good Ol' Billy like many of Americas oung citizens is pressured by his peers to do thin s he might not normally not do, good or bad. This is a very serious probfem, and many 'out of peer' persons such as parents, teachers and other adults have tried to aid those weak children into making their own decisions. In the rocess though, the adults seem to take over the 'ob of 'peer usher' andppressure the poor Billy or Suzi into doing things tliey normalfy would not. What's a guy and al to do? Advice - let the Tciddies play life on their own. Urge them to do their own thing and be careful about itg of course, this is just advice. Story by Iames Mining - Sword and Shield.

But, rhat's the breaks They made the headlines. They made the news broadcast. Why didn't the varsity football team make it to the playoffs? Everyone who watched the 10 p.m. news Friday, Nov. 8 saw the highlights of the Irving-Nimitz football game, where the Vikings ran over the Tigers 27-O. Viewers also heard local sportscasters announce Nimitz as a playoff con- tender. The preparations that began for another spirited playoff season were brought to a dead stop the next morning. Grand Prairie was clearly in first place, but there was a three way tie for second with MacArthur, Duncan- ville and Nimitz. The District Executive Commit- tee turned to the tie breaker system, and Mac advanced to the playoffs. Although they lost a playoff position, the Vikings wound up with a victorious season.

"We played to the best of our abilities, and that is the most important thing. We reached our potential." Potential was found in in- dividuals and in the team as a whole. Players like Clint Parsons, who now shares a national record for the number of field goals kicked in one game, made up a remarkable team. "It was a great year for the team and for me," Parsons said. Many players credited not only hard Work but school spirit for their season. "The school really helped us out. We had some great pep rallies, and we could not have done it without that support," Iunior tight end Cory Van Volkenburg said. Even without the playoff title, the '86 varsity football team made quite a name for themselves. Senior Sammy Mendoza who was out for the majority of the season due to breaking his leg in practice concluded, "Hey! We were picked to be 7th in the district. I think we did a great job!"

That's not exactly how the phrase goes, but it did seem to describe this year's IV football team, and unfortunately they learned a lot and won little. With a 2-6-1 record, the IV did not have much to show for their efforts in the score books, but their at- titude reflected their en- thusiasm and created a good forecast for the next year. "The season wasn't too bad," Sophomore Mike Sim- mons said, "despite the six Eames we lost. We knew we ad a tou season ahead of us so we eld together and played as a team all season. t was more of a learning season to prepare us for next ylearf' Alt ough most players felt it was a preparation season, some saw it as a rebuilding stage. "We had the talent and the coaching to win," Sophomore Ken- neth Rushing said, "but I saw it as a rebuilding period from our freshman ear."

For the varsity volleyball team, victory came in a sense of accomplishment and unity. The seven members of the team had to work with their shortage of players, and work they did. "If anyone deserved to win, it was these girls," Coach Alice Taylor said. The volleyball team may not have gained points on the court, but they did gain a year of good experience. "It may not have been our best season, but we learned a lot," Iunior Michelle Flet- cher said. Determination was the name of the game as the girls kept their spirits up even during the losses. "We got a little worried toward the end of the season, but we hung in there," Coach Taylor said. There were many prob- lems that resulted in the team's stormy season. One of the main obstacles that the girls had to overcome was the fact that the Irving junior highs do not offer a S bowing her great ability, Senior Priscilla Barber gives her best shot in the game against Grand Prairie.

Among the major set- backs and next to impossi- ble obstacles remained the possibility that the odds were simply not on the Lady Vikings' side this year. "I don't think there is any definite reason for our bad season," Senior Elizabeth Grunewald said. "We tried our best, but I guess things just did not go our way. There was really nothing else we could do but keep on trying." Among skills and en- durance many lasting rela- tionships were developed during the volleyball season. Although the team did not score the points they needed on the court, they were all definitely winners. "I feel very positive about the other team members," Grunewald said, "because we struggled together to win, and I feel that everyone did their best." Story by Shannon Ingrim.

The IV and freshman volleyball teams were winless in district but champions at heart. "I thought we could beat anyone. We went into every game with winning determina- tion," IV player Traci Weddle said. This year's IV team had the definite attitude of champions. Coach Alice Taylor pointed out the improvement of Iody Huckaby's defensive skills and the outstanding ability of setter Kathy Weg. "Kathy was our team leader. She was really great in attitude and team spirit. Sometimes it was hard to keep her under control when we were down in a game, but she kept the team together with confidence," Taylor said. There is one thing that near- ly all the layers agreed on: the fun of vollleyball. "Voilleyball is a fun sport and different from all the rest. I'll definitely be playing varsity next year, and I'm looking for- ward to it," Weg said. The Nimitz volleyball teams lacked experience that the other teams acquired in junior high. They never let that bring them down or wipe out their confidence. "I had to teach the team from scratch because they had no ex erience. This puts us bellfind our opponents in ability but not enthusiasm," freshman coach Mona Castro said. The freshman players had gone into the year with little or no knowledge of volleyball. They came out of the year with excellent volleyball skills and memories of a fun season. "When you start out with knowing nothing there is no way to avoid improvements. That's what these hard work- ing freshmen did," Taylor said. Many of the freshmen are coming back next year for the IV volleyball team. They discovered that it was fun and worth the hard work. "I love volleyball and the people in it. I will play next year because I look forward to working out for this sport," said Freshman Rebecca Wise. While most teams would look back at this season and be discouraged, the Lady Vikings are looking to the future with optimism built on a strong learning experience. "I'm excited about next year and look forward to winning," Taylor said. Story by Dana Pyfer ,NN ,,f, lag. .W N imitz IV team looks up and prepares themselves to return a hit from the Irving Tigers.

Well, ou can belie e it The Cross Country team, coached for a second year by Becky Chris- tenberry, worked very hard to earn the best record of Nimitz history. Christenberry and her 14 runners started practicing at Spring, arriving at school at 6:30 a.m. Once the weather cooled down in the fall, the students practiced in their sixth period class, mostly lifting weights. As practice continued, the team competed in meets at different high schools. It was not until October 26 that the tension ignited. This was the most crucial meet, for the District championship. It was here that all area high school runners com- peted against one another in a two mile girls' race and a three mile boys' race. Each runner in the race was given points indicating what number hefshe had been when crossing the finish line. After all had crossed, the best five finishers' points were added and the school with the lowest points won the race. After all races were finished, the top five finishers plus the best two teams were qualified to go on to regionals. This year, the top two district teams were Irving and R.L. Turner, but because of the fifth qualifier getting sick, Nimitz student Diane Stringer, placing sixth, got to take the place and advance to regionals. Stringer said, "I worked very hard all year striving to go to regionals, and when it happened I could hardly believe it!" Stringer, along with the other regional win- ners went to the race November 2 in Lubbock. There she placed 39th in a two mile race out of 137 runners. Her time was 13219. Another important mem- ber of the Cross Country team was the manager, Tammy Black. Black con- tributed to the team by bringing water and ice to practice and meets, keeping times and records, and also making sure sweats were supplied during cold weather. "Tammy always pushed us to do our best," said Sophomore Kim Gruber. Story by Lynda Kain. tmade me feel good when the other team members sup- ported me when I ad- vanced to Regionals.

It was also the first year they played Mac and came out undefeated. But it was the second year they had been under the coaching of Alex Alkhazshvilly and still couldn't correctly pro- nounce his name. "Coach Alex," Iunior An- dy Oseid said, "was very supportive. He always en- couraged us to do our best." And the team did do their best in the beginning of the season and they were in first place in the district. "The highlight of the season," said Coach Alex, "was the intensity of the players, but they were just not as intense at the end of the season, even though they wanted to win." The intensity of the players was important, but the intensity of the Viking fans must have had a hand in the team's beginning suc- cess because 11 of the home games were won or tied. Beating Bryan Adams, the state semi-finalist, and other top ranked teams did not mean an automatic play-off spot, but it did mean that they made a name for themselves. "We made a name for Nimitz in soccer," said Iunior Iohnny Brichetto, "and we proved we could compete with the best at the end of the season."

"We were a new team," Coach Mona Castro said. "It's hard to get people to work together when they're such young players." Another setback the girls victoriously overcame was a lack of unity, especially at the beginning of the season.

The team en- countered uncounted trials and learned from their mistakes. "Our biggest problem was the lack of experience. We really learned a lot this year. Many things will be so different now that we all have an idea of how varsity ball should go," Sophomore Keith Burris said. Many objectives need to be covered when develop- ing a winning organization. Teamwork is one of the main qualitities a group of ball players should always strive to achieve. "Our biggest problem this year was a lack of team- work," Senior Eric May said. "We were just a bunch of individuals out there try- ing to show off." "Our unity needs in- provement. We were all so different we never agreed with each other," Iunior Corey Van Volkenburg said. Like every other organization, once this year is gone, the basketball players have many things they will do differently next year. "There will be less com- plaining and more practic- ing. I also think that the leadership will be stronger," May said. "I think that if we can stay injury free and keep all the players we begin with, we can have a competitive year," Van Volkenburg said.

The greatest outcome of the season was in the attitudes of the players. Through the disappointments that they encountered throughout the season, they kept a positive attitude and patiently waited for their hard work to pay off. "This year was a rebuilding year and we finally began to get it together at the end of the season," said Sophomore Kelvin Brown. "I can't wait for next year to start." This team will again try and rebound off a disap- pointing season and if the hardworking attitudes of this group continues they just might bounce back as victors.

They are a solid team as nited the win 66Ifeel like this team is my family," Iunior Kim Nash said. Many of the players on the girls' varsity basketball team have been playing for at least four years. Nash and, Iunior Beverly Harris have been playing on the same team together for eight years. Iunior Didi Sawyer and Seniors Ieannie Skelton, Rachel Veliz and Roshanda Edgar have played together since junior high. Their strong bond of unity and experience as teammates has put them on top. P! 'ML "When this team gets together and plays with no individuals, it can't be beat,', Coach All Tiller said. Tiller said that unity is the first goal for his team. "Sometimes we don't get together until the second half," Harris said, "and then we have to make a comeback." Although the season did not begin until November, practice started in Iuly. "Working together for a couple of hours a day for about six months will bring anyone together as a team," Veliz said. "But we're also all good friends." The team doesn't get much publicity, but the lack of attention didn't seem to bother most of the players. "I have fun playing the game. I don't care if anyone else notices us or not," Senior Valerie Adler said. This team has worked together and acquired a special team relationship. This family of basketball players has the attitude of winners, and that's what they are. Story by Dana Pyfer.

They had one of the best seasons of any sport at Nirnitz this year and have had for the past decade. So what could be so disappointing for the Nimitz wrestling team? "The lack of recognition at Nimitz," Coach David Traver said. "We have has a wrestling team for the past ten years, and it has been the most successful sports program at Nimitz. This year we have had two state runners-up and finished twelfth in the state as a team. Yet nothing was mentioned." The team members also felt the lack of attention. When asked if there was enough attention given to the sport, Freshman james Morris said that there were a few minor changes that could be made. "We could at least be given a permanent place to practice here at Nimitz," Morris said. The team practices at Townley Elementary school during most of the season and in the weight room dur- ing off-season training. Other than the lack of at- tention, the hardest obstacle to overcome was inex- perience. But the young wrestlers took the little ex- perience they got in practice and used it to the utmost in competition. "I had never wrestled in competition until region- als," Sophomore Mike Fisher said, "and we placed fourth." "Although the team did have a good season," Freshman Brock Brogden said, "they all felt that their best season is still to come. This was a learning season for the freshmen and those new to the team, but our best year is still to come. When we gain a little more experience, we will really be good." As the only senior on the team, Dennis Hammer had to set an example for the newcomers, and if they follow in his footsteps their season will be even better than predicted. Hammer placed first in the regional competition and second in the state contest. With the experience the team has gained and with the attention they hope to receive, maybe next year they will be sending more to state and getting even more attention. Story by Ernie Cote. C oach David Traver worked hard this year to develop the largely inexperienced team into one of the best in the state.

There is also more unity among them this year than there has been in a long time. They clap for each other and really seem to care.'t The players felt that unity and attributed it to Housden. "Housden is great," Freshman Anita Link said. "She works us hard so that we can do our best."

Their hard work paid off and by the end of the year their im- provements were obvious. "We started our first tour- nament with a 363 and we ended our season with a 318," said Coach Eddie Dowler. With improvements came adjustments. The team had to adjust to having their own coach because this year was the first year that they didn't have to share a coach with MacArthur and Irving. Their scores reflected the adjustments they made. "We did much better this year," said Iunior Chad Windham, "and we improv- edalot." One of the team's greatest achievements was being four strokes away from se- cond place in the district tournament. Unfortunately because of their incon- sistency by the end of the tournament the team ended up in 6th place. "The team's hardest obstacle this season was enior Rene Gonzales made an S outstanding contribution to this year's golf team by finishing below 80 in two varsity tournaments. In the first round of district competi- tion, the team was in third place with the help of Gonzales who shot a 78. Chad Windham photo. being consistent," Dowler said. "They were in third after the first round in district. Marvin Reynolds had a 76 and Renee Gonzales had a 78, but in the second round they were unable to withstand the pressure and finished in fifth." Now supplied with a permanent coach and an obvious determination to improve maybe the golf team will come in a consistent first in next year's district tournament. Story by Chrystal Davis.

We all improved a lot. It was obvious by watching that we got better as the year progressed. We still have a lot of rmprovrn to do and we're working hard at it. lunior Chad Windham Tm 191 Boys' track broke records, ran 5th at the Texas Relays. Their hard work paid off n the long run This is one story that doesn't need a catchy lead to entice the readers. The simple facts should grab one's attention. The Nimitz boy's track team placed first in the district meet. They are the only team in Nimitz history to have won two Con- secutive district champion- ships in any sport. They ran a 3:156 in the 1600 meter relay - the fifth fastest time at the Texas Relay Meet. Now, supplied with the hard facts, one might be wondering why this team didn't make it to the state meet. "We're in the most com- petitive region in the state, Coach Milton Watson said, "and we've beat everybody in this area except for the 1 9 2 Boys Track Dallas district." Although the team didn't go to the state competition, they did take part in what they considered to be a challenging meet. "The Texas Relays are a big deal," Senior Cedric Layton said. "It's bigger than district to us. Some of the best teams in Texas get to gof' For the second straight year, Watson took his mile relay team to the Texas Relays which is an invita- tional meet held in Austin where Willms, Kevin Ferguson, Layton and Adolfo Soto finished fifth in the 1600 meter relay. The only goal that the team set for themselves that they did not reach was going to the state meet as a team, but they all agreed that their backbreaking workouts were worth their record breaking season.

W, Boys Track Was it hard work and dedication that gave them their unity and success? No, it just uns in the family hrough the thrill of victories and agonies of deficiencies, the glirls' track team coped wit the in- eligibilities of some of their key runners and celebrated sending three to regionals. Part of the success is con- tributed to Coach Beck Christenberry's hard, workouts, love for the track girls and moral support. "I think Coach Chris is the most caring coach an athlete can work with," Senior Theresa Smith said. "You went out for practice and worked for Coach Chris because she cared a lot." Another part is attributed to other team members. "We were like a family," said Freshman Angie Foster. "When one of us would mess up, there was always another team 1 Girls Track member to back you up and give moral support. Returning track members hope that the team unit and moral support will still exist even thou h Christenberry has decided not to coach next year. The returning members not only hope the new coach will be sup ortive but also that the track, members will be as close as they were before. "Being like a family af- fected us because it made our victories better," Smith said. "We could share the victories with others? Certain individuals did exceptionally well and the team was able to celebrate with them. Sheila Kazee broke a new school record in the 100 meter dash. Taji Cornell also broke the school record in the 100 meter hurdles. Kazee, LeeAnn Baker and Smith advanced to regionals, and Smith then advanced to state. The thrills outnumbered the agonies this season, and the few agonies were eas to deal with because they were dealt with within the family.

This year the team was united under a new coach. Coach Bryan Harwell, who played high school baseball in a Viking uniform himself, had high hopes for the team. He pulled- them together and taught them to give it all they had. "The coach helped the team out a lot. He stuck with us throughout the los- ing season and never gave up on us," Sophomore Ricky King said. The varsity team practic- ed every day after school. Practice started with stretching, running and bat- ting practice. Workouts were tough, but it helped to strengthen the team. "Coach Harwell made the difference. He wanted us to win. He gave us a hard workout so that when game time came, we'd be prepared," Sophomore Aaron Flinchum said. The baseball players never threw in the towel either. They worked hard, and they did their best. "We played good, real good. Sometimes we de- served to win because of all the good work, plays and hits we made. But some- times we had too many er- rors that lost it for us," Senior Alfred Antonetti said. Team spirit was rarely on a downer. 'Let's go Mike' and other calls to team- mates could be heard from the dugout. They gave each other support and made some family ties among themselves. "Our team was made up of one big family. It made all of us feel great to be on the up 'n' up, and when something went wrong we all felt that, too," Senior Chris Coronado said. Though the defeats put a dent in the record, it's what's on the inside that means the most. Nimitz var- sity baseball proved that winning isnit everythingg it's how you play the game that counts.

It h d Ricllalid Liddgnll e I n e u g- ou The sport baseball requires a lot of time and devotion. This year's junior varsity baseball team had both. The players prac- ticed every day after school until 6 p.m. When a player consistently strives to im- prove his game, that is dedication, and many players improved tremen- dously throughout the year. The junior varsity basket- ball team worked together and showed a lot of team unity. Throughout the season they adapted to new positions and plays that changed the outcome of a few games. Over all the season was a great learning experience. The baseball team's final district record was 4-8, and their season record was 6- 13. Hlnconsistent play," said Coach Iinks White, "was the cause of the inconsistency l ff fM".'f?'e,T1w ' aft' in the win-loss record." Two exciting victories in the season were the MacAr- ther and Irving games. These games were impor- tant statistically and moral- ly to the players because they beat their rivals. "Everyone was enthusiastic about the game, and we really enjoyed beating our biggest rivals," said Freshman Anthony Villanueva. Although their record doesn't show it, the IV baseball team improved and grew together as a team, This year's learning ex- perience helped them to prepare for next year. Freshman Paul Chung said, "Next year we will be ready to take on even more vic- tories."Story by Iill McDonald and Tonya Tribble Nimitz IV player Paul Chung hits a single to centerfield to bring in two runs.

Although the team con- sisted of many talented peo- ple not all were able to com- pete at all times. This prob- lem did more damage to the group's season than anything else. "Our main problem was the fact that we never had enough players," Iunior Derek Bennett said. "The No Pass-No Play rule was a very good idea and a very necessary evil," Coach Ianet Cochran said, "But it was the main reason for the constant lack of players." Along with the in- eligibilities were the numerous injuries which caused many to miss meets and important practices.

Clubs such as FHA, band, drill team, and newspaper identified us with our interests, while service clubs such as Student Council sponsored Homecoming and SMILE Week, carrying us through the usual school days. It was a rarity that a day would pass without an 8 a.m. meeting or a club sponsored event.

The council, officers, class and homeroom representatives met to get ideas for future projects. "The club is for better com- munication between the student body, faculty and among students," Sponsor Linda Halcomb said. They provided services and educational projects for the school and community. "The council promotes interac- tion between the students and the city they live in through programs like CHIMES, Adopt-A-Child, SMILE, Pennies for People, and the calendar for starvin children," Sophomore Steven Baxle said.

The marquee in front of the school and the calendar in the west hall were put up and decorated by commit- tees on the council. Each was set up to benefit students by keeping them informed of the events go- ing on during the week. "Student Council is a great way to get involved with what's going on at our school. I don't mind taking the extra three or four hours a week to work on the mar- quee and calendar," Senior Heath Daniels said. The Student Council is not referred to as a club, but as a council of young minds working together to make their school a friendlier, happier and more active place for students to be.

B1 .... l 1 l Number Sense, Tron, Mu Alpha Theta, Sci-Fi, Science Club Making moves for out of this World advances ath careers. Number Sense, Tron and Mu Alpha Theta were the clubs that promoted and allowed students to get involved and further their interests in math. Number Sense, a UIL competition club for total mental thinking, was started by algebra teacher Doris Renshaw. "I started Number Sense when the school opened. It takes a lot of work because it is very com- plicated," Renshaw said. The con- test is based on strict mental in- telligence, as no scratch paper or erasures can be used during competition. The club name Tron is the com- puter command "trace on," to follow a program's path. Sponsors Ginny Limpus, Gary Schepf, and club members went to a robot exhibit at the State Fair. Tron looked at the various types of robots, ranging from play toys to engineering machines. "Tron has been to many com- puter contests, and we went to regionals. We have hosted our own contest here at school," Limpus said. The club also took part in a com- puter dating survey. Many students filled out an information sheet to find out who their most compatible mate might be. "I'm going to major in accounting, and Mu Alpha Theta provides a background that universities look for," Iunior Troy Smith said. Two other clubs that started this year were Sci-Fi and the Science Club. Sci-Fi is for any student in- terested in science fiction and fan- tasy tales. Activities ofthe club in- cluced book reviews, story writing, trivial pursuit, attending Sci-Fi con- ventions and viewing media. The Science Club is for those Number Sense was difficult at first. It became much easier b e c a u s e I learned more s Ir o r t c u t s . S o p h o m o r e David Coward students interested in learning more about the world sciences.

Dur- ing the Christmas season, the foreign language classes sang carols through the halls in their learned language as one of their many activities. "Besides singing songs, I like a Germanfest the best," said Senior Lee Ann Baker. This festivity con- sisted of competition with German phases of grammar, reading com- prehension, and fun things like pretzel eating and rootbeer drink- ing. Baker, vice-president and historian of the club, kept track of all records from the meetings and get-togethers. At the same time, the French and I think the French club is great, but I wish more people were Spanish clubs were having fun eating, dancing, and singing at their December Christmas party. They also tried a scavenger hunt, having all the words in mixed languages. Club sponsor, Sarah Di Tucci said, "We try to offer as much fun and enjoyment as possible, while still trying to interest the students in the country's cultural background and history." The Latin club also seemed to have fun at their "after-Christmas" party. Many games including Trivial Pursuit were played, awarding the winners with points. At the end of the night, the one with the most points received a S25 bonus. Other activities included a Roman Orgy at the Magic Time machine, participating in the Homecoming parade, and the an- nual fund raiser. George Delarosa, president of the Latin club said, "Latin, being the basis for the English language, will hopefully help me in my future career." - - Although most students took a gnovoffgeliore foreign language class because of Malzt Cart- college requirements, they proved . to make many friends and have wright much fun in their foreign language clubs.

FCA, FHA, Teens for Christ, Y-Teens Organizations look for reorganization An organization is a body of people joinin together for a cause. Whatever Sie cause may be is irrelevant. The main point is for the organization to stay active in its unity and to grow in its purpose. There are, at Nimitz, four clubs that meet solely to help others as well as enrich their own lives. These are Y-Teens, FCA, Teens-for- Christ and FHA. Y-Teens is a small organization that deals with the betterment of in- dividuals. Each school group is a branch of the national assembly, but the problem is keeping it active. President Amy Polouse explained, "We started out fairly lar e, but people' lost interest, and we havent done anything in a long time." Teens-for-Christ also started off rather well, but the objective of this club had a bit more controversy that their lives spiritually through fellowship and athletics. "FCA has been a healthy club all year, plenty of members, plenty of activities, a solid club," Sophomore Todd Gaston said. FHA is a fork off the road of the homemaking classes. The small organization talks about healthy things like the family and homelife. Each club has its own dreams that they try to fulfill, but it takes every member to do his part. The main goal was learning how to associate and work with peers and get a small taste of unity. Story by Chad Rueffer. It has helped N others.

NTL offered students the oppor- tunity for advancement and im- provement in the theatre. The club assisted in the production of the plays "Exit the Body", "The Boy Who Stole the Stars" and the children's play "Raggedy Ann and Andy." "I enjoyed performing "'Raggedy Ann and Andy" in front of the third graders in the Irving area," said I I enjoy being in NFL be- cause it helps me relate to other people. S o p h o m o r e Danna Oxford Sophomore Danna Oxford who played Raggedy Ann, "because they really got involved with the play." NFL allowed students to develop communication skills in public speaking and oral interpretation. NFL members competed with area schools in dual acting, humorous interpretation, prose and poetry, reading, extemporaneous speaking and debate. "I decided to join NFL to learn how to stand up in front of an au- dience without feeling foolish and I have," said Iunior Kim Coward. Unlike NFL, ITS tested the skills of speakers as well as actors. The Art Club helped expose students to fine arts. Members par- ticipated in field trips to museums, side walk art shows and plays. "We make an effort to promote the idea that one need not be en- rolled in art to take part in activities dealing with art," said sponsor Dan- ny White. Whether it was on art form, on the stage, or on a canvas club members learned from and enjoyed each. Story by Cindy Tamayo.

The band practiced every morn- ing to prepare for their perfor- mances. Was it really as easy as it looked? It was not just a matter of blowing air into some form of a metal pipe. It was long hours of hard work. "We practiced every morning, the same music over and over again un- til we all got it right and together," said band member Tresea Sims. Band did not perform for the stu- dent body alone. They also per- formed in front of judges for UIL competition, as musicians from schools all around tried to win a mark of one for their schools. These competitive contests were where the hard work paid off. To most band members it was harder to concentrate on music with the no-pass no-play rule for the extracurricular activities. "To these students in band, this class is just not some curricular ac- tivity. It's a part of their learning," said band instructor lim McGahee. With the problems the band fac- ed, it was a pleasant surprise that with few members, the past suc- cesses remained traditional. Story by Shannan Long.

Cadets push forward with ability and pride he members of ROTC were people with the courage to be different, the will to do something with their lives and the discipline to stick with it. All ROTC members had a deep love for their country. "Nimitz is full of people who love this country, but there are some who forget too often or just don't care," Senior Lieutenant Com- mander Chris Emmerson said. Em- merson was in charge of all cadets. The only people above Emmerson were the instructors Claude Hanson and Manuel Barrientos, who pushed the cadets to do the best of their abilities. They were very helpful to the cadets by giving them good training for the service. "Our instructors treated everyone with respect. They never yell at us," Senior cadet Howard Wilkerson said.

Orchestra, A Cappella Choir, Nimitz Singers, Choralairs Musicians plan goals reaching for Canada hoir and orchestra set some Cmajor goals this year with the biggest being the trip to Vancouver, Canada. From day one, led by new direc- tor Ioe Arnett, the choir was a booming business which helped not only the choir prosper but the or- chestra, too. The orchestra, under the direction of Ierry Roe, held many concerts, some with choir, and held many fundraisers to help them on the trip. "Mr. Arnett conducts the or- chestra for us when Mr. Roe is not here. They both work well together during the performances. They are also both working very hard on the trips," said Senior choir and or- chestra member Daniel Nix. Senior choir member Brooke Sumral thinks Arnett has done the best job out of all the choir directors she has had. "He's a big teddy bear," she said. "Once you warm up to him he will bend over backwards for you." The choir, orchestra and pop group plan the trip to Vancouver and had a race to see who could raise 520,000 first so they could go free. "I think that other than Arnett's drive and determination in his directing, he also goes out of his way to make the trip go through," Sumrall said. So after many years of the fre- quent appearances of new choir directors, the program finally had ambition and confidence which was needed for a winning tradition. "My main concern is for the students in seeing that they develop their musical talents to the highest level of performance," Arnett said. Story by David Mitchell.

There are three parts to the entire publications staff. Newspaper staf- fers, yearbook staffers and the photographers all work constanty throughout the year to turn out the headlining events concerning Nimitz. The work they accomplish- ed exceeded the allotted hours in a school day, so they spent many an evening working at Nimitz. I o u 1' n a I i s m gave . me the experience of publishing four year-books and working wi th m a n y unique people. Senior Melinda Iones the year "There are many details to attend to. It's not just writing a story and picking pictures. It is a bit discouraging having to spend all the extra time on details that no one notices simply because they are not in publications," Senior Melinda Iones said. The hardest part of publications was meeting deadlines with com- plete pages and good photographs. Stories were often hard to create because dealing with the students was difficult. "The school newspaper should be all about peo- ple exercising their right to express themselves on any subject. Their resistence to speak openly leads to many dull and dreary stories," said Iunior co-editor Belinda Mann. The whole publication epic boils down to hours of hard work and dedication. Whether it was captur- ing faces and feeling through a camera lens or capturing the same thing on paper, it captured nine months of remembrance.

Another exciting field for students was Cosmetology taught at Irving Beauty Academy. The course was spread out into a two year program. In the classroom the students learned about laboratory ex- periences in shampooing, cutting, curling and coloring hair, perma- nent wave, manicuring, facial treatments, and make-up techniques. When their education is com- plete, they take the licensing exam. If passed they were legally able to be employed by a personal care shop, HECE, PELE, and Cosmetology were just some of the many courses that offered students a chance to have experience and a jump towards their careers.

A member of the Academic Decathlon or Na- tional Honor Society would. The decathletes studied six sub- ject areas to prepare for regionals in February and state in March. Like the decathletes, most NHS members spent nights and weekends studying to keep their grade point up. Members were re- quired to keep a current 7.0 grade point. Members and sponsors alike agreed that NHS received minimal respect from the student body because of misunderstandings. "NHS is now gaining respect because of an increased amount of activity," sponsor Connie Kilday said. For example, NHS went skating in November, held a school dance in December and a banquet in February. "History . . . fun and interesting? How could debates and battles be interesting?" The Iunior Historians made history fun and interesting for its members by combining historical trips with enjoyable activities. Contrary to popular belief, the Iunior Historians was not a group exclusively for juniors. The group had about 35 members from dif- ferent classes. After sifting through the misconceptions, one can realize that Iunior Historians might be the right groupg a group to learn and have fun at the same time.

Graduation was the main event that the long hours of dedication led up tog although it too was changed to 9 a.rn. in the morn- ing for the first time.

The last ball has been thrown, kicked, hit andycaught. For seniors, like everything else, there will be no more playing time. The referees have blown the last whistle. A time out has been called, however, to allow one last look at the season. The excitin performances of all the Nirnitz athletes did not come eassy. Hours of long, hot work perfected tech- niques that might not have won but showed the best of a player's abilities. Summer practices, off-season and spring training were the background of 'every athlete's perfor- mance for without them there would have been no performances. The pride was a result of the pre-season hopes and at- titudes of the players. Every coach that responded to a questionnaire repeatedly mentioned the athletes' dedica- tion. Everyone wants to be the best. The best was not only reflected in the season records. Many teams played as well as they could and were met with disappointments along the way. The bad times, though, did not keep away the fans. They supported their friends and children at every competition. This included driving through Friday night traffic to watch away games, eating concession stand food and sitting through winds, cold and rain. Almost every athlete who competed this season fits that description of a confident athlete that is trying to be the best he can be. They went out and strove for perfection. Tlheyj 311 reached it.

"You will soon be out there in the real world" became a saying too familiar to seniors. It was time to start making plans for the summer and the future. It was the end of the school year. As school came to a close, it was easy to recall the first of the year. Memories of looking at one's schedule wondering if there would be anyone to talk to in algebra class or if the American history teacher was oing to be strict or easy came to mind. Hard Work, friencfs, football games, holiday celebrations and special events made the year fly by. All of the sudden it was time for locker cleanout, turning in textbooks and overdue library books, clearing records, paying fines, semester exams and graduation. Seniors were faced with the question "What am I going to do with the rest of my life?" while the underclassmen held officer elections. When the final X was placed on the calendar, the 1985- 86 school year was over, but the pride that make Nimitz Number One lingered.
