The teachers pictured here and on the fol- lowing pages are not limited to one subject, but they are grouped here according to the subject they teach most. The History department had an upheaval in grading systems this year which affected Mr. Carter ' s classes. The advent of extra credit reports caused a number of cases of writers ' cramps. 1.

Paul Carter — American history, govern- ment, contemporary problems, and drama. The English department coped with the usu- al sort of assignments this year.

McHabe welcoming the cast of Up The Down Staircase to a new semester is heard throughout the theater. On yet another night, the house lights fade again, this time on a stage blank but for an empty bed. The lights on stage come up to reveal Reverend Samuel Parris praying for the salvation of his daughter, Betty, in the opening moments of The Cru- cible. These were some of the sights greeting North Adams theatergoers in Jonesville this year. The Drama class, under the direction of Mr. Paul Carter, presented the two plays, one each nine weeks. Both shows played to full houses and the audiences responded enthusiastical- ly to both productions. It was an all-star year on stage for the Drama class. Staircase cast — Front row: S. Irish, P.

In shifts of 3 hours, junior and senior guys would report to the subdivision at the east end of town to work on the house under construction. Working against time and Michigan weath- er, the house was completed, ex- cept for a few final details, by May 14. An open house was held that Sunday, Mother ' s Day, with the public invited. 1.

A poem was read and words of congratulations were given. The candles were extinguished and eleven new members had been inducted into Honor Society. The candlelight ceremony was just one of many activi- ties National Honor Society members had participated in. After the ceremony, a number of the group went to Jackson and saw High Earlier in the year, mem- bers visited Tiffin, Ohio and saw Mac- beth on stage, and Hillsdale, to see Dra- cula. They toured the Grosvenor House in Jonesville and collected for UNICEF and the Red Cross. They also sold candy canes at Christmas time. Gaining membership in Honor Society is different from any other club in school. An honors committee is respon- sible for selection of new members. In previous years, incoming members had been " tapped " in the spring awards as- sembly. This year, the tapping was held earlier and new members were tapped in the classroom. The group is under the advisorship of Mrs. Evers and Mrs. De- venport and there are no officers. Each member has an equal responsibility. It is to set an example for the rest of the school through grades, conduct and par- ticipation. 1978-79 Honor Society Members. Front row: J. Pickell, M. Spohr, K. Reimschisel, S. Irish, D.

Although as an organization they weren ' t very active, under the leadership of president Mike Owens, individual members be- came the spirited backbone to the North Adams cheering sections. The members also created signs proclaiming Ram superiority for both girls and boys basketball teams. So even though, technically, the club wasn ' t as active as in pre- vious years the team support and rowdie spirit was still there. Offi- cers this year were President Mike Owens, Vice President Robert Bru- mar, Secretary Marietta Owens, and Treasurer Dawn Petrie. DOMESTIC Future Homemakers of America doesn ' t just mean cooking, cleaning, sewing, and running a household. F.H.A. is an active group under the advisorship of Mrs. Plummer. During football season F.H.A. faithfully pro- duced their caramel apples for home games. Their project for fair was a booth explaining F.H.A. Money- making projects were selling Tom Watt Kits and Sweetheart roses for Valentines and Sweetheart Day. This money was split among the girls participating in the F.H.A. Convention. The officers were: President Heather Campbell, Sec- retary Julie Kesling, and Treasurer Carol Petrie. The three regional officers were Carol Petrie, Jackie Rhoades and Tashia Latimer. The State Representa- tive was April Monroe. Convention group — Front row: D. Webb, K. Roberts, K. Bolenbaugh, J. Rhoades. D. Bordner, C. Kimble, Mrs. Plummer, Back row: S. Knapp, J. Kesling, D.

Corn from the field project was exhibited at the Hillsdale County Fair. The seeds and fruit were money-raising projects. The money earned was put to- wards the F.F.A. convention. The awards from the convention were given at the F.H.A.-F.F.A. awards banquet. The F.F.A. also ran football concession stands. In the picture at the left, presi- dent Mark Schmitt is caught sampling some of the popcorn.

Sue Holcomb served as editor to an en- tirely senior staff this year. They pro- duced eight issues of the paper, plus a special thirty-six page senior issue, in May. At the awards assembly. Advisor Mr. Stoll presented three journalism awards to the outstanding staffers this year: Jennifer Penix, Robin Rutan, and Sue Holcomb. REMEMBER Front row: T. Buck, C. Hicks, H. Campbell.

People who run around taking pic- tures of anybody and everybody, people who delight in catching others in embarrassing situations, people who would have their own picture taken as the " Unknown Yearbook Staff " . Yes, that gave it away. It ' s our very own yearbook staff. We worked hard this year to overcome obstacles like no cam- eras, no times to hold meetings and, occasionally, no staff. So if you think we came up lacking in one area or another, voice your protest! Join the staff next year! Our executive staff this year in- cluded devoted advisor Miss Fish, insane editor Laurie Lynch and gopher punching bag all-around good guy and editor ' s sidekick John Flannery. ACCOMPLISH The S.A.E., Student Action for Education, was certainly active in many areas of educa- tion this year. Due to a disagreement over the interpretation of the school ' s field trip policy, a committee from the group went before the school board to debate the issue. However, the S.A.E. managed to maintain their active schedule. Group members visited Franken- muth. True Grist dinner theater, and Chicago. In Chicago, they visited the Museum of Sci- ence and Industry, the Museum of Natural History and the top of the Sears Tower. S.A.E. sponsored the Christmas card tree and Valentine card heart in advisor Mrs. Evers ' room, sold cherry pies on Washington ' s birth- day and collected for a needy family at Thanl sgiving and Christmas time.

Finances ran low because the Pepsi ma- chine, their main source of income, had been removed in August. However, the council was responsible for the organization of football homecoming. In the spring, president Glenda Dwyer also organized the voting for Teacher of the Year. The junior high student council, under Miss Breeden ' s advisorship, remained intact. They sponsored a few record hops throughout the year for the junior high. Senior high student council — Standing: T. Buck, C. Petrie, Mr. Kowalski, T. Smith, T. Smith, J. Drake Seated: S. Holcomb, K.

The band marched in all five home games this year, including homecoming, when the alumni joined them. They also marched the fair parade in September and the Memorial Day parade In May. The concert band performed in both the Christmas Arts Festival and the spring concert, besides going to District Festival at Hudson and receiving straight II ' s. Representatives were sent to Solo Ensemble and also to Honors Band. This was the first year for Honors Band. It was comprised of the top bandsmen in the county and they performed with the Massed Band at the Massed Band concert in February. The Sr. and Jr. bands also combined to play at com- mencement in May. On May 12, the band awards banquet was held in the high school gym. Medals were distributed and members received bars, pins or letters, according to their grade. Kathy Reimschisel received the John Phillips Sousa award and the Richard Phillips Band Award was presented to Lyn- ette Addleman. Special recognition was given to Sarah Irish for her mural of Beethoven, which the band is pictured in front of. In a campaign to im- prove the looks of the band room, Ludwig was painted by Sarah on the divider wall between the gym and the stage. The band council was comprisec of seniors this year. They were: president Lynette Addleman, vice-president Kathy Reimschisel, sec- reiary Sue Holcomb, and treasurer Sarah Irish. Juniors and Seniors — Front row: K. Reimschisel, R. Griffis, L. Lynch, C.

If a person were to have walked on to the stage during 6th hour last year, they might have thought they ' d walked into bedlam. Because that was the rehearsal hour for the Jr. band. At over 70 members strong, the sound they created widened the cracks in the back wall every day. Jr. band members spend a lot of their time in training for Sr. band. They have marching practice, both on the road and the field. They perform at all the concerts and send representatives to Solo Ensemble. Due to conflicts, that was not possible this year. The band went to District Festival at Leslie and received a II. Members participated in fund-raisers such as the walk-a-thon and the candy sale. Completing a music-filled afternoon, the choir had rehearsal 5th hour. Mr. Norman took over the class while the former in- structor. Miss Veenhoven, took a leave of Choir — Front row: K. Cornish, J.

The North Adams Rams football team specialized in conquest this season finishing with a 6-3 record and a co-champion- ship with arch-rival Litchfield. Under the stern guid- ance of coaches Cook and Anspaugh the Rams stam- peded through their first five games quarterbacked by David Buck. But sometimes during that frenzied fifth game. Buck fell victim to the Terrier defensive line. David retired to the sidelines for the remainder of the season with ligament damage. For the remaining four games of the season, the vacant space was filled alter- nately by Randy Raber and Todd Dwyer. , On November 8, 1977, the coaches presented awards for outstanding achievement during the season at the annual Fall Awards Banquet. Those securing the presti- gious Iron Man award were Neil Caulkins, Rod Daniels, Randy Hasten, Mark Schmitt, Jeff Schmucker, Dale Spahr and Glenn Spratt. This award is given every year to those players who have participated in all the practices and played in every quarter of every game. David Buck was named Most Valuable Player and Ron Redding was presented with the Ted Caulkins Defen- sive Player award. Those acquiring a spot on the All- Conference Defensive squad were Dave Cook, Ray Hicks, and Dale Spahr. Teammates David Buck and Rod Daniels obtained positions on the offensive squad. Receiving Honorable Mention were Neil Caulkins, Randy Raber, Ron Redding, and Mark Schmitt. Greg Cox and Ron Redding were named grid iron co-cap- tains for next year. gijMM| BW Hljoit ■KQnZiIi} ' :£S3flB .-■ 4Mi«06.y« ' ' »£S T ■ ' !l mI I k Hg •• J.V.

FESTIVITY On October 7, 1977, a stiff breeze tore its way througii the large crowd assembled behind North Adams High School. On October 7, 1977, the North Aams Rams met their age-old foe, the Litchfield Terriers, on the field of football. On October 7, 1977, on the same field, a new queen was crowned, as tradition car- ried on. The presentation of the royal court and the crowning of the queen were the highlights of a half-time pro- gram also featuring the NAHS Marching Band accom- panied by alumni and a parade of floats. The floats were designed with the theme " Roasting the Opponent Teams " in mind. In the opinion of the judges, the freshmen class entry, " Rams Don ' t Pussyfoot Around " , captured the idea best. The float featured Lynette Aughney and Virgil Sheets as cheerleaders from oppos- ing teams, Ricky Ruffer and Buster the Ram, and Rog- er Calbetzer as a Wildcat on a stretcher, a casualty of the game. The court was driven in cars furnished by Cheever Homecoming court: K. Caulkins, S. Holcomb, S. Wyatt, Queen K. Drake, J. Binkley, D. Petrie, K. Baker. Pontiac and Dean Sharp. The princesses were escorted to the Student Council float, entitled " Queen of Hearts, " first. Leading off was freshman princess Kari Baker and her escort John Drake, followed by sopho- more princess Dawn Petrie and her escort Rob Dobbe- laere and junior princess Julie Binkley with her escort Ryan May. The queen candidates followed them. Kay Caulkins was escorted by her brother Todd Caulkins, while Kay Drake was escorted by her father, Harmon Drake. Sue Holcomb followed them on the arm of her father Bert Holcomb, and Sonja Wyatt, escorted by her father, Walter Wyatt, completed the court. Amid exploding flash bulbs, Kay Drake was pro- nounced Fall Homecoming Queen for the 1977-1978 reign. Co-captains David Buck and Mark Schmitt pre- sented Kay with her crown and a bouquet of red roses. Then the queen of hearts and her court were escorted off the field and into North Adams history. VIVA CITY The announcer ' s voice starts, " Wel- come to tonight ' s game between the North Adams Rams and ... " and the cheerleaders ' voices rise up over the announcer ' s. " Rams Speller! Hit it! " The girls braved every kind of ele- ment cheering the team on to many an exciting victory. They also sponsored pep sessions to get the school ' s spirit racing. They put on one sl it entitled " If I Were Not a Cheerleader " and another which featured lines like " These are the helmets our boys wear to cover up their long, long hair. " The class of ' 78 fought it out with the class of ' 81 in the class spirit competition and emerged victorious with the spirit ball 3 times straight. Both squads were advised by Patty Loss of Hillsdale Col- lege. Sweet roll sales and a jersey auction raised money. The lucl y jer- sey winners were allowed to wear the shirt of their favorite player the last three hours of the day. J.V.

The excitement was thick enough to reach out and touch. Nobody was doing much work that afternoon. See, everyone had something a little more important on their minds. If this group of girls won, no, when they won the game that night, then they would play for all the marbles. The marbles, in this case, being the girls ' basketball state championship. The gym vibrated with pride as the girls walked into a pep session honoring them that morn- ing. Spirit rocketed to a fever pitch as the team prepared to leave. Around noon, the girls, coaches, and administrators left for DeWitt behind a fire truck escort. Their en- thusiastic fans followed them out of town in a convoy containing a large amount of the school ' s enrollment. As hoped for, victory rode on the Rams ' side and hopes were aimed at the top. The next day, the team took the floor in Michigan State ' s Jenison Field House in the Class D state finals. Fighting all the way, the girls finally bowed out to Rock Mid- Peninsula. The regular season team was comprised of six seniors: Kay Caulkins, Kay Drake, Glenda Dwyer, Ronda Hawkins, Beth Johnson and Penny Neer; and three juniors: Becky Hull, Karen Ruder, and Cathy Warren. Tina Buck, Karia Cook, Jennifer Pickell and Mert Spohr, all sophomores, were added to the team as they entered tournaments. The girls, coached by Kevin Williams and Gary Beach, finished with a league record of 17 and 0, and an over- all record of 24 and 1 along with the knowl- edge that they will be forever lodged in North Adams history. The J.V. basketball team, coached by Gary Beach, was somewhat overshadowed by their elders success. They finished with a 16 and 1 record, however, and another season ' s exper- ience under the belts.

But for a program still in its infancy, it ' s doing very well. In fact, very well indeed, because the varsi- ty went to the quarter-finals before finally being defeated. The J.V. team emerged with flying colors also, finishing with a perfect record.

From that first thump of the ball slamming against the backboard to the fading echo of the final buzzer, there is the tinge of a never-say-die spirit. Rams spirit, the same spirit that led the boys ' varsity team to a co-championship this season. The first game was a hint to what the season would be like. Even though it was a loss, it was a close game, going down to the final seconds, giving the huge home crowd something to get excited about. As the season grew older, the boys grew better, racking up numerous victories, a lot of them, close, nerve-wracking games. The starting line-up usually consisted of seniors, with juniors playing back-up through long, tiring games. The biggest game of the season was against arch-rival, Litchfield. The gym was literally filled to the rafters as the Rams and Terriers fought it out for first place in the league. To the intense disappointment of the boys and the home crowd, Litchfield emerged victorious that night, later repeating the performance in N.A. ' s first tournament game, ending strong hopes for a dis- trict title. The 1977-78 varsity basketball team fin- ished with a league record of 9 and 1, and an over-all record of 14 and 2.

Woodruff. The J.V. boy ' s basketball team, coached by Kevin Williams, also has to put up with some over-shadowing by the varsity. But they had some nail-biting, teeth- clenching games of their own. Finishing with an 8-11 record, the J.V. ' s found themselves veterans of court pressure. Many a close game had the fans screaming. It wasn ' t an especially victorious season, but it was a learning season. Coach Al Williams, after a short breather from coaching, returned to take over the freshmen team. According to the guys, Coach Williams instilled fear in the hearts of his men. They totally demolished some of their opponents and lost only once, to Hanover. In tournaments, they defeated Adrian-Madison to take the championship and the trophy. Eighth grade — Front row: S. Petrie, S. Pickell, D. Kittle, K. Alley, C. Parks. Second row: D. Creek, R.

They emerged from their two-game tournaments as victors. The team, coached by Mr. Gaverdiel, lost only once during their season, by one point in overtime. The seventh grade, with Coach Dwyer, suffered through a tough sea- son this year. They played some real- ly close games, going down to the fi- nal buzzer. Their first tournament game was lost by only one point. They played Litchfield, who had lost only two games coming in.

We will, we will, stomp you!) It was a battle cry, a Rams battle cry. The generals were the girls pictured on these two pages. They urged enthusi- astic crowds on to greater heights of Ram-Mania. Basket- ball season was incredibly row- dy this year. The bleachers and the gym itself, echoed to the cheers, applause, and stomping of the 78 brand of spirit. Lend- ing to the frenzy in the stands were loyal fans Mike Owens, Rod Daniels, Heather Camp- bell, Alan Staley, Laurie Lynch, Dale Spahr, Keith Hart, Marietta Owens, Kris Williams, Tim Tucker, Don Zorn and Bill Johnston.

SUPREME They could have lit t he gym just on the electricity, excitement, and tension crackling through the air. It wasn ' t enough that the gym was packed for the biggest basketball game of the season. Oh no, they stacked people on top of people because it was also Winter Homecoming. Postponed because of our friendly, neighborhood blizzard, the pageantry had been re- scheduled for February 17th, and the nerves were wound up tight. Couples entered the gym according to grade: Terry Smith and Wendy Lynch, 7th grade prince and princess, Tim Ward and Darcy Bordner, re- presenting the 8th grade, Todd Dwyer and Sherri Clark, freshman prince and princess, Troy Dwyer and Anna Brumar, the sophomores ' selected candidates. " Standing on the edge of time, " Dave and Ronda, 1978. and Bob Haack and Carol Petrie, representing the ju- niors. Following them were the four couples vying for the crown: Lynette Addleman and Mike Owens, Glenda Dwyer and Dave Cook, Ronda Hawkins and David Buck, and Diane Richards and Randy Rossman. Round- ing out the court were last year ' s king and queen. Jay Alton and Carole Blakley. As the candidates stood at center court, blinded by the camera fiends ' flashbulbs, Ronda Hawkins and Dave Cook were announced as king and queen to reign for the next year. After being given the royal works, the couples majestically retreated to the crowded safe- ty of the hall for the congratualtions to follow. A seesaw. That ' s the word that best describes base- ball season this year. The league lead seesawed back and forth between North Adams, Litchfield, Waldron, you name the team, they probably held the lead at one time. The guys were also playing under a handicap a lot of the time. It was miserable weather, with rain and cold temperatures hindering many a contest. The end of a successful season, H-4, unfortunately saw the defending league champs fall a little short of retaining the crown. Fate caught up with the Rams again, bumping them out of tournament contention in a pre-district bout against Adrian-Madison. Two team members, Dave Buck and Ron Redding, went on to play American Legion baseball after the season ended. Front row: R. Redding, D. Bump, D. Caulkins, G. Cox. Second row: R. Hasten, R. Hicks, R.

' s, with Coach Dwyer, saw a split season with a record of 4-3, playing under the same weather conditions the varsity faced. However, they faced them admirably, led by the pitching skills of Wayne Tyler. Wayne also pitched part of a scrimmage for the varsity at Hanover.

They had their share of assorted places, but never quite won a meet. They competed in about twelve meets altogether. They had a few notable special competitors, like the 440 relay team of Dave Buck, Ron Redding, John Rader, and Keith Wasnich at the area best meet, and Dave Buck in discus at league meet. The boy ' s team was coached by Mr. Lubaway. The girls ' track team, coached by Miss Breeden, also had kind of a rough season. The one exception was, of course. Penny Neer. Penny tore up the league, later going on to assorted invitationals and eventually competing in the Nationals, placing 8th in shot put. She also broke the state record in shot put, but it was a week after the state meet, and an invitational, so the old record stood. As for the home front, Michele Ack- erman was a team stand-out in the 880. The girls had about 18 including area bests, the league meet, and regionals. The 440 relay team took third place at the league meet. The girls ran in poor weather almost all the time, as did the guys, and it really was rather a discouraging year for track. Front: Coach B. Breeden. Second row: S. Pawlowski, M. Ladd. Third row: T. Lati- mer, M. Spohr, K. Williams. Fourth row: M. Ackerman, D. Sems. Back: P. Neer. Jr. High track is a growing interest in North Adams, as can be seen by the size of the team. With the earli- er attention and training, the possibility of a growing high school program is sound. The team had about four meets this year, with league teams like Pittsford and Camden. They even had a record broken by Scott Duby in the 440 run. Scott also ran the 220 and com- peted in the long jump. The mile relay team was also a notable stand-out, holding their own in first place. They were: Bryan Spratt, Darren Kittle, David Creek, and Mike Hull. Mike Hull also did well in another event, the high jump. People competing in other areas were Steve Pickell and David Creek in pole vault, Sherry Clark and Wendy Lynch in shot put, Don Rader in hurdles, and Lorraine Duby in the 440. Coached by Mr. White, the Jr. High team went to an all-league meet. The boys ' team placed first and the girls placed third. Front row: S. May, T. Cross, S. Clark, C. Petrie, K. Ellis, R. Brumar, W.

They fin- ished very well, with only two losses for the regular season. Coach Cook would like the team ' s victorious op- ponent to remain anonymous, but for the record, it was Morenci. The team reached the finals in dis- tricts before being defeated. But they went out in style, with Anita Fry hit- ting home runs both times at bat in that last game. One team member said she was pleased with the performances of the rookies this year. They came on strong, filling in gaps left in last year ' s team, which bodes well for the future of the team. Penny Neer and Dawn Bump traded off at first base, Yvonne Cook was at second, Kris Williams played short- stop, Kirstie Horn was at third, Anita Fry was catcher, and pitchers were Kay Drake and Beth Johnson. As for the outfield, Karia Cook was in left field, either Kay, Beth or Diane Bump played center, and either Col- leen Thompson, Sherry Pawlowski, or Chris Sharp reigned over right field. Sidelined with knee injuries, Jenni- fer Pickell played an impatient spec- tator, and Glenda Dwyer kept stats. According to another spokesman, the team is anxiously awaiting next season. There seems to be a rumor circulating that Coach Cook himself may have to don a pair of those gold knickers the team wears.

Below left: Jane Cousino concentrates on a project in the art room. Below right: Tim Tucker and Mike Wingart concentrate on their typing skills. The seniors of 1978. They had stand-outs from one end of the spectrum to the other. From scholas- tically to athletically, from dramatically to social- ly. The motto this very diversified group of people chose was " Youth is the opportunity to do some- thing and to become somebody. " , and they certain- ly did their best while in school. The class colors were chosen as green and gold and the flowers were yellow and white roses. Class advisors were Mr. An- spaugh, Mr. Carter and Mrs. Evers. The usual royalty was chosen from the senior class. Kay Drake was elected fall homecoming queen. Her fellow competitors were Kay Caulkins, Sue Holcomb and Sonja Wyatt. In February, four senior couples were presented as crown contenders. Couples were: Lynette Addleman and Mike Owens, Glenda Dwyer and Dave Cook, Ronda Haw- kins and David Buck, and Diane Richards and Randy Rossman. Ronda Hawkins and Dave Cook were chosen as king and queen. Kathy Reimschisel was chosen as D.A.R. representative for North Adams. The class of 1978 walked through N.A. ' s halls for the last time, as students, on May 21st. Diplomas were presented, tassels were switched, and another moment went down in time. David James Buck Cheryl Taylor Curtis John Charles Flannery Glenda Ruth Dwyer i Anita Fry Michele Haack Roxanne Angela Griffls Ronda Hawkins Susan Lynne Holcomb Jennifer J. Penlx David Estelle Freed, Jr. Yes, the seniors were out of school. But it definitely wasn ' t a vacation. The athletes had their usual games and practices, some seniors started full-time jobs, oth- ers spent the week trying to adjust to the free time. In any case, there were a few minor functions the seniors were expected back for, like the trip and graduation. The honors assembly was held Wednesday, the 17th. Honors stu- dents were recognized and cords were presented. Penny Neer was named valedictorian, Laurie Lynch, salutatorian, and Diane Richards, third in the class. Kathy Reimschisel received the Lion ' s Club scholarship and the Drama award, Laurie Lynch, the govern- ment award, and Dave Buck and Penny Neer, the Alpha Beta awards. Jennifer Penix, Sue Hol- comb and Robin Rutan shared the journalism award, and Mike Win- gart was presented with the Office Practice award. Honor students were Dave Buck, Alan Staley, Kathy Reimschisel, Katy Caulkins, Bill Johnston, Glenda Dwyer, and Sarah Irish. Following the assembly was the total insanity of graduation re- hearsal. Indoor practice was order- ly chaos and outdoor practice be- came buried in flying dandelions. Thursday the 18th was the senior trip. A local business paid the sen- iors ' way to Cedar Point and fifty out of sixty-three seniors went. The weather was beautiful and many a prize-winning sunburn was acquired. Euchre was the bus-trip pastime, along with sleeping to recuperate from an early start. The final activity to top off the week was graduation. The 21st dawned cold and cloudy, moving the proceedings inside. Much to the disappointment of many graduates, the skies cleared as the first couple walked into the gym. Even the hall outside the gym was filled as Reverend Kenneth Muck gave the baccalaureate address, followed by the presentation of the class and the salutatory and vale- dictory addresses. Tears mingled with laughter in the halls after- wards, as graduates said good-bye to classmates, friends, and the many memories hovering, invisi- bly, around them.

" GRATITUDE The yearbool staff would like to thank all the photographers who made this book possible: the Powell people, George, Lyn- ette Addleman, Roger Hunt, Dennis Phil- lips, Mrs. Watkins, Tina Buck, our own Miss Fish, Mr. Ruder, the Hillsdale Daily News and Mr. Kowalski. Without these peo- ple, the book would have been words and white space. We ' d also like to thank Don Zorn for his sports stats which we couldn ' t have done without and Mr. Kevin Williams for letting us borrow his " most prized pos- session " to record a piece of history. Most of all, we ' d like to thank all the " gang " down at N.A.H.S. Without you, there obvi ously wouldn ' t be a book. Each and every one of you made 1977-78 a year worth re- membering. Thanks again! The one that got away. Kevin Lyons creating in the shop. A leprechaun at leisure. ■.l " w l N$ Relax, Kay. It ' s over now. A cheerful Bill Caskey at work. FINANCE ■c M«nib r F 0.1 C.
