Robin Russell realized every girl's dream
on October I8 when she heard her name
called before a packed home crowd. She,
along with the other contestants, rode in con-

were escorted onto the field by Wildcat Civic
Club members through an archway decorated
by the Keywanettes. After all the homecom-

Clemmer was announced as Maid of Honor
and then Robin was crowned by outgoing
queen Ann Merck.
The announcement of homecoming queen
was the grand finale of an exciting homecom-

cheerleaders who dressed along with other
students in 50's day attire. Each club decora-

Homecoming Assembly Adds
Homecoming is always the
most exciting week North Gaston
students experience. Student
body leaders tried once again to
make this a special week by
changing tradition. Underclass-
men had complained that they
never knew the contestants for
homecoming queen so Mrs.
Hibberts, Student Council
advisor, planned an assembly to
introduce the contestants. Each
girl presented a speech or tape
revealing her feelings toward NG
and her nomination for
homecoming queen. A slide
presentation photographed by
Mr. Barron Lee gave students an
additional view of the girls. Mark
Lutz, Boyd Beasley, Mike
Calvert and Chuck Hill were es-
corts and Heidi Heiren played the
piano for background music.
Football sponsors presented a
rose to each contestant. Students
then went to third period and
voted for Homecoming Queen.
Joey Watts stated, ' iThe
assembly was great in the respect
that we could have something
new and special for the
homecoming courtf' Julie
Bumgardner added, ' 'The
homecoming assembly was
fantastic. It was one of the most
beautiful gatherings we've had at
North Gaston? HI thought the
assembly was unique and special
for everyone involved. I feel that
we started a new tradition," Sta-
ted Student Body President, Bill
Burkett. "The assembly was a
thrill for the whole homecoming
court. Whether anyone else
remembers it or not, it will al-
ways be a special memory for
each girl in the court," replied

implies . . . Working Wildcats. During the

3:30 p.m. leaving afterwards to occupy their

Keeping a pan-time job while attending
school full time requires great responsibility.
Perfection must be produced in both work and
school. When junior Charles Thornburg was
asked if he felt pressured while trying to
provide quality work in two totally different
areas he replied, "It's hard. Work can lower
your grade average because you don't have
time to study. " Melissa Williams, who is also
a junior and works at Hanna's Cafeteria in
Gastonia, felt differently. "No, I don't feel
pressured," she stated, "If I did, I would quit
When we are put into new situations and
must adjusts, the change can be difficult.
Sophomores can agree with this. Being a
sophomore in a new atmosphere with dif-
ferent surroundings is a change that takes a
considerable amount of adjusting. Two of
North Gaston's sophomores hold a part-time
job. For these two young men it's "double
trouble." It's their first year in high school
and in the work force. As anyone would, they
want to make a good first impression in both
areas. When asked if they were adjusting to
both situations. Greg Comer, who is em-
ployed by Long Creek Fish Camp of Dallas.
replied, "Most of the time I feel pressured
because it's a load. It's also a challenge. I
don't have much time for leisure between
homework and work." Jeff Bell, who works
several odd jobs in Gastonia, in contrast said,
"Yes it's easy because most of the people
here at school help you out. I really don't feel
pressured in any wayf'
By the time you're a senior the combina-
tion of school and work has become routine.
A balance between the two has been es-
tablished and a sure reason for working has
become prevalent. Senior Renee Emory has
worked for a year and a half now at the A8cP
of west Gastonia and states, ' 'I enjoy meeting
new people and talking with them. I've
developed responsibility through learning
how to manage the money that I eam. The
routine of work has become more fun."
Karen Anthony, who is employed by D'Lites
of Gastonia and is also a senior, says that
work is all right and that it has definitely
helped her become more responsible as a per-
Work can be rewarding, but also hindering

to be interferred with the most. As one

daily basis the student can not keep up with

behind. When questioned
replied, 'fYes, working
homework and school activities. The work I
do doesn't help me save for college because I
don't make enough, so right now I'm working
to have a good time with my own money in-
stead of asking mom."
One can see that work plays an important
role in these students' lives. The balance and
responsibility it brings about is difficult to
manage, but somehow the strain is overcome
so that perfection is brought about.

Wildcat Have A New Look
On any day, the current trends of the
year can easily be found in a crowded
North Gaston hallway. Walking to class,
fashion conscious students can be seen
wearing the latest styles. The most
common sight is jeans ranging from plain
blues to colorful florals, paisleys, stripes,
and plaids. Stirup pants are also a popular
newcomer to the fashion scene. Topping
these off are shaker sweaters and big shirts

contrast. Guess and Swatch watches keep
many students on time as they msh to
classes. Another popular accessory is
rubber and plastic bracelets worn by many
girls. The hairstyles of many North Gaston
students also have a new look with rat-tails
or partially bleached hair. It is clear to see,
as styles continue to change, North Gaston
students will always have a new look.

art, and band. Missy Duncan feels that 'fa

Places To Go
There really aren't a lot of places to go in
Gastonia on the weekends, but some
students make the best of what.it has to
offer. The most popular hangouts are
McDonalds, Eastddge Mall, and Dimmen-
sions. Some altematives for students are for
them to go to parties or to Charlotte. Most
students who work on the weekends miss
out on school games and just about every-
thing else but the parties.

North Gaston is foitunate to have a
group ol' talented students who can
transform an empty canvas or lump ol' clay
into something pleasing to the eye. But
their talent isn't anything magicalg they are

students can give blank canvases color and
detail until a picture is complete. Or, some
students can mold clay into sculpture. such
as a vase. giving it shape. texture. and

The success ol' these art students comes
from practice, dedication. and an open
mind to new ideas and criticism. The

For ten students at North Gaston, hard
work and dedication in their studies have
placed them at the top of their class in overall
grade averages for their sophomore and junior
years and gained them the recognition of serv-
ing as Junior Marshals for the 1985 Gradua-
tion exercises. They are Kathy Mason, Tina
Pasour, Todd Wooten, Amy Maiers, Shad
Spencer, Revonda Porch, Martha Rohm,
Chm Hill, Andy Lynn, and Kristi Williams.
Their responsibilities consisted of handing
out programs, seating parents and guests, tak-
ing up tickets, and serving refreshments.
Kathy Mason, the Chief Marshal, had a spe-
cial duty in assisting in distributing diplomas
on stage at graduation. Leading the proces-
sion of seniors in and out of the auditorium
were the two co-chiefs, Todd Wooten and
Junior Marshals for 1985. FRONT ROW: Tina ROW: Shad Spencer, Chuck Hill, Andy Pasour, and

Phyllis Clemmer. Melanie was chosen to

testants went through rehearsal, attended
dances, interviews, supper at Reflections, a
tour of U.N.C.C., and breakfast at Slug's.
"It was an opportunity to meet peopleg I was
very excited. It helped me set a new goal for
my life," said Melanie Scarborough.
Phyllis was chosen by the student body as

cherish," stated Phyllis Clemmer.

that all front seat passengers
should wear their seatbelts.
Also, if one is under 16, the
driver is liable for them, mak-
ing many juniors and seniors

classmen they transport to and
North Gaston students
reacted differently about the
law that now fifteen out of fifty
states have obtained. Many say
that the reason they don't Wear
them is that they've grown
accustomed to not wearing
them, and because they are not
comfortable. Others say they
wear it when they think about it
or are going on long trips.
However, some believe that the
law is a good idea and that it
makes the road safer. A large
number of juniors believe that it
should be each individua1's
choice whether or not to buckle
up. Whether or not to wear, just
remember it's the law.
In the past year a new fad has
become very popular among
North Gaston students. The new
fad is rolling yards! One may
think a person's yard only gets
rolled for revenge, but in most
cases this is not true. ln North
Gaston circles it is a practical
joke to play on friends.
Usually the rivalry is male
against female though there are
times when everyone takes part

A few major but positive
changes in our administration
have helped to keep NG running
Mr. Costner stated, "I feel the
transitions for the new staff
members have been very
smooth." Mr. Carpenter, one of
our new assistant principals who
transferred from Pinewood
Elementary, stated, "The transi-
tion for me hasn't been rough,
but the hours have been." Mr.
Carpenter had to adjust from
attending only four PTO
meetings a year to attending all
home football and basketball
games along with dances. Mr.
Doug Berckman, also a new
assistant principal who trans-
ferred from Southwest Jr. High,
replied, "Here students can have
cars, are allowed to smoke, and
are presented with more freedom
than junior high students. I'm
still leaming. lt's awkward that I
know only a handful of students,
but so far I'm very impressed."
In the guidance area, we
gained Mr. Brock Smith from
Holbrook Jr. High for academic
guidance counseling. Mr. Smith
was a faculty member at NG nine
years ago. "Everyone's real nice
and l've been made to feel
welcome here," he commented.
"This school is friendly, hospi-
table, and "down to earth. " Mrs.
Jane Taylor our previous
academic counselor was trans-
ferred to vocational counseling
where she is looking forward to
association with business and in-
dustry. "I applied because of ex-
peiience and close work with Mr.
Trudnak," she stated, "so transi-
tion was natural." Mrs. Taylor
was the first female to receive
this position in Gaston County.

the mind that words seem unnecessary, but
for the moment, at least, think with me ofthe
time, effort and love shared with us through
the life of Steve Trudnak. Even though we
were not fully aware ofit as the days and years
rolled by, his epitaph of commitment to hard
work, loyalty of purpose, and cheerful
courageousness in the wiles of trouble was
lived before us and is now a permanent part of
Most all the days of his manhood wee spent

helper and friend could be sensed. and educa-
tion was deemed to be so much more than
books, homework and grades. The family
was his pride in life, and his work was the joy
of life. Combine these two elements tfamily
and workj and the true meaning of service
through dedication was exemplified in Mr.
"Pleasant memories must be arranged for
in advance." Indeed, advanced arrange-
ments were handled with great care by our
friend and co-laborer, Steve. He helped us
prepare a lifetime plus of memories during his
tenure at Dallas and North Gaston.
Beyond the office chats, computer sheets,
old Mustangs, L.R. stories of fame and glory,
survey sheets, registration days, competency
testing, college days, tomato plants, making
schedule changes, night school, and voca-
tional workshops, there was a true friend of
students and fellow workers. He was the
leader out front when needed, but most often
a friend by your side and also an encourager
with a push from behind as needed. Our
friend was a fun-loving man who always had
time to share a story, a cup of coffee, a joke
and a laugh, a green thumb hint and a word of

A new disciplinary punishment was
adopted into our school rules to try to
cut down on absences caused by the
original out of school suspension. In
School Suspension QISSJ is its name.
The majority of the students who have
been in ISS were put in there for ex-
cessive tardies, but ISS is also used as
punishment for fighting, sleeping in
class, and other disturbances students
While in ISS, the students are given
assignments by their teachers to keep
them busy. Often they are given more
work than the regular classes. This is to
ensure that a student will not fall far be
hind in their studies during their
punishment. They are given no breaks
and are under supervision the entire
time. "Isolation is the main reason ISS
is working," according to Mrs. Rust.
In Mr. Costner's words, "ISS has
cut down on out of school suspension,
although there have been many people
who have gone to ISS for their second
and third times. " Mr. Carpenter stated,
"It's working for those who don't
want to get into trouble?

confinement, all of them are coopera-

Library Club Members
The library is an important part of all
schools and our Library Club works hard to
insure this importance. This club devoted its
attention to student reading activities
throughout the school. As part of its activi-
ties, the club sponsored Book Week, a
recognition of National Library Week, and
were responsible for the many programs and
guest speakers whose topics included art,
literature, drama, and science. School library
media coordinator Nancy Moss stated,
' 'Most of the club members worked as library
assistants during the day, so their contact with
the library helped them with organization
within the club."

also important. They marched in
the Gastonia Parade, Ranlo

After marching season, things
such as All-State Band and All-

The Newspaper Staff has published five
editions of the Lair this year. They have
many tasks and obligations to meet before
their deadlines. They think of stories to write.
Then, they go and interview people and find
information out about the stories. After that,
they write, proofread, and rewrite. It takes a
long time to finally have a story that appeals
to their readers, and to give the news and facts
that are interesting. They had a small staff
which resulted in everyone working a little
harder. Tammy Huggins expressed, "Most
people don't know the work and headaches
that we go through but when we get
compliments like we have this year, it's worth
it. " When all the stories are finished, they are
taken to be typeset. They get them back in
long strips, cut them apart, and plan layouts.
Then, the final copies are sent to the printers
and finally, the papers are completed. Julie
Bumgardner feels, '5Working on the paper
has taught me a lot of responsibilities. There's
so many different things I've learned because
of working on the stafff' Also, Sherry
Williams says, ' 'I love working on the
newspaper, there's a lot of work compared to
the junior high paperf'
Throughout the year the Yearbook staff has
many jobs. They must sell ads to local
businesses and books to students to pay for
the publishing cost and the photography
supplies. Students wrote and typed copy for
activities, special stories, and clubs covered
in the yearbook. They alsos cropped pictures,
drew layouts, and measured copy and
headlines. Boyd Beasley stated, 5'Yearbook
is a lot of hard work, it's like being on a job
and not getting paid for it. ' ' They do their best
in making the yearbook a great success for the
students. Andrea Messer expressed,
"Working on the Yearbook was an ex-
perience that will stick with me forever, I've
leamed a lot about working together and it's
taught me to deal with responsibility. ' ' Work-
ing on the staff and meeting deadlines was a
lot of hard work, cooperation, and responsi-
bility. All their hard work pays off in the end
when the yearbook is finally finished.

Success In The Making
The Cats football program went through a
few changes this year. One of the biggest
changes was the new head coach Bob Patton.
He is a 22-year veteran of coaching, being an
assistant and head coach at Salisbury High
School. Patton describes himself as a
fundamentalist and he taught the basics from
the first day of practice. "I like to establish
good habits such as strong discipline, good
organization, and the coaching of specific
techniques," stated Patton.
Patton made a big change by adding a
junior varsity. This helps the younger players
get experience they need for varsity. To help
with the J.V.'s, Patton got Terry Radford and
Clay Alexander tojoin Ken Walters and Jack
Pasour as assistant coaches. f'Playing on the
J.V. team gave me a chance to play where I
wouldn't on the Varsity," said Andy Britton.
Practice was another big change. The
Varsity and J.V. exercised together but did
drills separately. Practice was laid out on a
piece of paper made on a time schedule posted
for the team to see what had to be done.
Practice ran with no wasted time so they could
cover more in a less amount of time.
One other alteration was the team choosing
a team captain, Joey Watts and co-captain,
Eric Wallace. They helped to give the team
leadership. The two led the team in their ex-
ercises and in the team meetings after
practices and games. Watts also met with the
coaches before the games to relay messages to
the team and helped to make decisions during

The boys track team had a good season
compared to the last few years. There were
many students who went out for the first time
causing the team to be really inexperienced.
All of the athletes were willing to work for
improvement under the direction of Coach
Dixon and Coach Best.
The team's strongest events were in the
field events and distance running. Ray Boyce

Several members went on to the sectionals
in Charlotte but no one advanced to the
regionals. The season did end on a good note
when the team finished 7th in the conference
meet. The conference meet was held at North
Gaston which now has one of the best track
facilities in the county.
Boyd Beasley stated, "I'm really proud to
have participated in track this year. lt was
great having the new track." Gary Benton,
who also ran track this year for the first time at
North Gaston commented, "It's different

The girls' track team started out at an all out
sprint in their first meet as they blew away
Hunter Huss and Ashbrook and cruised to an
easy non-conference victory. Although the
conference proved a little tougher, the girls
handled it fairly well as they finished 21-4
overall and finished first in the conference
along with winning the conference meet. In
the conference meet, they had a team score of
129 and their closest competitor, Chase, was
l7V2 points behind with a score of lllVz.
This score proved just how much talent the
girls had. Mary Beth Best said, A 'We had a lot
of talent and we used it wisely, by doing this
we achieved our goals that we set at the begin-
ning of the season."
One young lady achieved her goals along
with a few more goals. Ruby Thompson, a
shot putter and discus thrower, won the con-
ference, sectionals and regionals in the shot
put. After this she went on to the state. Ruby
stated, "lt's really very exciting to be
representing North Gaston like this."
Exciting is exactly how the girls' track
season should be described as they also sent
their relay team to the sectionals where they
did very well. Doing well in anything takes
hard work and dedication. The girls proved
that it really does work in the long run.

The girls' tennis team had their first win-

record of 4-3, and an overall record of 6-6.
They had several outstanding players, includ-
ing Jennifer Barkley and Lisa Robinson who
made all-conference. The girls' team is also
looking forward to a promising future. "We
had our first winning season and I'm proud of
that, but next year and the years following
they should have even more talent and victo-
ries," stated Dawn Bohanan who was the
only senior on the team this year, therefore,
the 13 retuming players should be back and

season finishing 2-9 overall, but they are

was led in scoring with Shannon Loweryis 71
points and Sherry Hope's 53. The team went
into a slump late in the season and finished
sixth in the conference with a 3-9 record.
The team had a good tumout in players this
year, which allowed them to have a Junior
Varsity as well as a Varsity team. The two
teams practiced together which really helped
the JV to improve. The JV did well with a 2-2

after school and practiced on their own time
as well. One golfer who benefitted from all of
this dedication was Perry Bundy. He earned

wrong," said Parker.
The season was full of birdies and bogies.
The team finished seventh in the conference.

Baseball Team Swings for
The baseball team had a disappointing year
with a 6-ll record. They started out well,
winning halfoftheir pre-season games. After
beating Cherryvile the team fell into a seven
game slump until they won against R.S.
Central. The end of the season was better
when they gained their composure and
finished up strong.
'gAfter the first of the season a few starters
got frustrated and quit. We had to use some
sophomores off the bench and by the time
they got situated, it was the end of the
season,', stated Chuck Hill.
The team was led by MVP Doug Ross.
Mark Earle and Ross were the only seniors, so
they had to pull more than their load in keep-
ing the team up. However Jeff Hall stated,
"We only had a couple of seniors to leave so
we are going to have almost all of our ex-
perienced players back."

Teamwork Key to Future Success
The softball team had a strong start with
two wins over Ashbrook in nonconference
play. The scores were 8-4 and 17-12 which
proves that the lady cats were on their toes.
The excitement and motivation to win were
evidently there. It was a young team with only
three returning seniors. Even though some quit
during the season, there were still those who
knew that they could win if they played as a
single unit. The team won only four more
games and their record shows that the enthu
siasm of the team came in spurts and that it
died down too early.
Some players were asked to comment on
the lack of spirit this year and third base
player Samantha Locklear stated, "At the
first of the year we played together but then
competition between players caused us not to
play as a team." Daniele Anderson added,
"There was just not enough teamworkf'

team's losses were not totally their own fault.
"When you only have a six person team it is
hard to win," stated senior Tonya Friday.

The B0y's ,I.V. Basketball team also had a
disappointing season. They started out
strong, but later fell into a slump. The team
has played many close games, but came up
short in most of them. "I feel my team has

Service With A Smile
One of our most active clubs is the
Civinettes. They have participated in many
in and out of school activities. One of their
annual fund raisers proved to be successful. lt
was the selling of the spirit links that were
placed on the fence around the football field
during our Homecoming football game with
Bums. Regina Baldwin, a senior in the club,
stated, "It was a major success. The Seniors
reflected their spirit for the school." There
were two more major fund raisers they held.
The first was the raffling off ofa stuffed teddy
bear during the week of our last home football
game. The winner of the teddy bear was
Junior Carol Ashe. They also sponsored the
Mr. North Gaston Pageant. "lt was a real
success and gave the students a good laugh,"
stated Mrs. Jane Kaiser, the club adviser.
At school, they've given several breakfasts
for the teachers and one for the football team.
Along with the Keywanettes, they donated
money to the school library to buy a VCR. A
new and popular idea at school was Flag Pole
Duty in which the Civinettes participated.
Another volunteer duty was the helping with
the Band and Chorus Winter Concert. They
handed out programs and served refresh-
ments. Away from school, they handed out
pamphlets for the Youth Appreciation Day
held in October at Eastridge Mall. They were
also active in the March-of-Dimes Dance-a-
thon. In addition they donated S25 dollars to a
Civitan participating in a "Sno-Doi' run in
Alaska. They visited Meadow Brook rest
home for Halloween, Christmas, and Easter.
"I think our visiting the rest home brightened
their day," replied Lisa Harper.
A new thing in the club is the enforcement
of the demerit system. If a member misses a
meeting, she gets one demerit, if she misses a
school project, it's four demerits and a non-
school project results in two. When she gets
six, she must do certain service projects to
uwipe the slate clean. " f'The demerit system
helps keep the one's who don't participate out
and also helps determine our Civinette of the
Year," stated president Melanie Scarbo-
The Civinettes are doing more projects
than last year and are making a bigger and
better name for their club and the school. Ml
think we are going to be a good club after

o Time To Pla
The Student Council has a variety of
obligations. Without them, special occasions
activities and assemblies would not take
place. They met once a month to help provide
activities to promote school spirit.
"A creative and responsible Student
Government is behind every successful
student body," stated adviser, Mrs. Hibberts.
They had a very successful year because of
the dedication and devotion of every member
"The Student Council has really come
alive in the past few years. This year we are
doing more things and doing them better than
ever," said Jack Ledford. For the first time
ever, the Student Council sponsered a
Homecoming assembly and a Parade of cars
Homecoming night, and changed methods for
the way things were done. "I enjoy Student
Council because it gives me a chance to give
something back to a school that has given so
much to me," stated William Summey.
Student Council follows a strict constitu-
tion and when members don't abide by the
rules specified, they have to face the demerit
System. This is made up of demerits which are
given for not attending out-of-school
meetings and not working in the concession
stand. Eight demerits is the limit and when
members reach nine, they will be released
To relieve the burden of duties given to the
Student Council, the Student Council formed
the Inter-club Council. It is made up of all
the vice-presidents of every club in the
school. They met monthly to discuss ways to
solve many of their club's problems. When
asked how the council has solved some of
these problems, the Sponser, Mrs. Hibberts,
replied, "It has led to more organization, so
clubs will not be having meetings or projects
at the same time." The Interclub Council
accomplished this by placing a large calendar
outside the Student Council office where
meetings and projects could be scheduled to
prevent them from overlapping. When asked
how the Council has united the clubs, Melissa
Hamby replied, "All the clubs have joined
together to work on many projects for the
benefit of the school." For example, each
club donated money to help with homecom-
ing expenses and boosted school spirit by
helping to sponser Spirit Week along with the
float parade during the pep rally. To prevent
burdening one club with too many responsibi-
lities, the Interclub Council assigned each
club a week to raise the flag each day and a
night to run the concession stand during a
home basketball game. The Interclub
Council also organized for the clubs to donate
toys for the Student Council's Christmas
project for needy children. Leigh Anne Price
summed it up when she stated, "The clubs
working together have made many school
projects more efficient and organized. ' ' Carla
Abemathy agreed, "The Council has been
successful. The Interclub Council has aided
the school by uniting the majority of the
students. Everyone has been very coopera-
tiveg therefore, we have been able to accom-
plish many things to serve our community and

my time. " Boyd Beasley states, 'fl joined the
club because I drive a bus and it's the only
club available for bus drivers only." Noel
Hoffman feels, "Driving a bus is better than
going to work after school and you can still
eam money." Sharon Anthony, secretary,
states some of her main obligations to the
club, ' 'I keep the meetings in order and I have
to make sure everyone is keeping up with
their time sheets."

A Goal for
The Beta and Science Clubs have helped
the school in several ways. One way is
academic leadership. Mrs. Hanna, adviser for
the Beta Club, pointed out, ' The Beta Club
promotes academic achievement, leadership,
and character which are very worthy and
worthwhile goals? The club accomplishes
this by requiring their members to have at
least a ninety over-all average. Kathy Mason,
the president, explained, "The Beta Club
gives the student something to strive for in
terms of grades. This club is a nationally
acclaimed society and it is an honor to be a
memberf, Tom Wright, the treasurer, ex-
pressed another way the Beta Club helps the
school, "The Beta Club does various
projects that benefit the school." The Beta
Club set up the cafeteria for College Day and
prepared the refreshments for college
representatives. During Christmas, the Beta
Club sponsored a candy cane sale and also
donated a toy to the Student Councilis Christ-
mas project for needy children.
However, the Beta Club isn't all work and
no play. They began their year by holding
their initiation at the Westem Sizzlin where
new members were required to come dressed
opposite their personalities. The Beta Club's
168 X Clubs
next activity was to attend their district con-
vention at Bunker Hill High School. When
asked why she enjoys the Beta Club, Regina
Baldwin replied, ' 'The Beta Club gives you a
chance to be around people who have worked
hard and achieved success."
Always striving for advancement and a
way to meet academic needs of the students is
the only way to describe the Science Club.
The many university field trips taken by the
club not only gave students an inside view of
specific science related career options, but it
gave the students an overall view for campus
life. When asked about the university field
trips, Tonya Wilson stated, ' 'I liked them be-
cause they gave up-to-date information on
science related things." The Science Club
works to help others as well as themselves.
One of these projects included donating toys
to needly children at Christmas through the
student council. The club felt this was a good
way to express the sharing of love at Christ-
The Science Club, the largest in the school
with 97 members, felt it necessary to divide
into committees in order to relate to the
specific needs of the club. The different
committees consisted of fund-raising, headed

by Karen Anthony, advertising, headed by
Roslyn Ervin, special projects headed by
Kathy Mason, and a social committee headed
by Dornessa Froneberger. Club members
liked this idea because it gave them a more
direct way to get involved. Roslyn Ervin
stated, '6Being a committee chairperson has
made me more confident as a person." Mr.
Neely, Science Club adviser, would like for
club members as well as the student body to
become more confident in the club as a
whole. "The Science Club's responsiblity
should be to help students get the most
available help in science and math related
areas," Mr. Neely stated.
The large size of the Science Club had both
advantages and disadvantages. However,
Linda McKnight, the President, emphasized,
'tthere should have been no uncovered areas
of school and community work produced by
the club which can fall short sometimes in
smaller clubs. In order for the Science Club
to continue striving and become the best it can
be, they will need as Roslyn Ervin stated,
"more loyal members and that upcoming
sophomores and juniors should plan aheadfor
an opportunity to explore with the Science

Keywanettes On Call
Service + Success
The Keywanettes once again proved to make
the year a successful one. A main objective of
the club was to provide service for the school
as well as the community. The major commu-
nity projects were babysitting at the Mary
Ellen Nelson Center and assisting at the
CROP Walk. They spent many hours decorat-
ing the archway for Homecoming, provided a
tea for Miss North Gaston contestants and
judges, and sponsored the Valentine Dance.
Members organized and served refreshments
for open house, fed the football team after a
home game, worked in the concession stand
during basketball games, and arranged the
Christmas Queen contest.
For all of this to be accomplished, there
must be people willing to devote their time.
The Keywanettes met every second Tuesday
of the month before school. Meetings were
run by the officers with the assistance of the
advisers. Everyone associated with the club
felt the year was a big success. President
Michelle McCraw commented, "I feel that
we were a success because many of our goals
were made and accomplished. More of a wide
range of members were involved in both the
more serious and fun activities. It was worth
my time and effort because I feel I've accom-

plished something after organizing it." She
also stated that she had a lot of help and
support from fellow officers and advisers.
Advisers of the Keywanettes, Mrs. Jane
Taylor and Mrs. Elaine McBryde, both enjoy
helping the girls. Mrs. Taylor stated, "It
gives me an opportunity to see the students in
a non-academic setting." She also feels that
it's good to have a service club that has a lot of
involvement in the school and community.
She added, ' 'They are a great group of girls to
work with. ' ' First year adviser Mrs. McBryde
felt that it was time well spent, and enjoyed
working with teenagers, She stated "I've
enjoyed getting to know and work with
students that I donlt have in class."
Senior member Tina Pasour really enjoyed
being a Keywanette. She stated, "I wanted to
be a member of the Keywanettes because the
club did alot of good things and I wanted to be
involved in an active club which participated
in school and community projectsf' Junior
and sophomore members Michelle Breuille
and Davan Cloninger added, "We like the
members and enjoy working with them."

Clubs View Career Possibilities
There are two clubs whose main function is
to leam all about health and the human body.
One is the Junior Heart Board. The JHB's
purpose is to leam about the heart and health
related things. They met at least once a month
in school and attended a county meeting
monthly at the Eastridge Mall Community
Room. Miss Caldwell, sponsor of the club,
replied "At times, the club keeps me busyg it
depends on the activity we're doing."
The JHB was involved in many activities.
One of these was a Pizza Eat-Off at Domino's
Pizza on Highway 321. The winner was our
own "Munching" Ray McSwain. Another
was CPR training classes that members
attended to broaden their knowledge on im-
mediate first aid.

ERVICE WITH A SMILE
The VICA and DECA are service clubs for
students in school work programs. The
students in these two clubs have early release,
meaning they leave school to eam a unit of
credit for work experience.
Although they do miss out on school activi-
ties, the students don't seem to mind. Brett
Carter stated, 'SI like being a member of
DECA because I get out early and can go to
work to make extra moneyf, VICA club
member Lisa Hill added, 'GI signed up for
VICA for the extra money and for the two
The VICA club does a lot more than most
people know. They participated in the flag
raising duties. They also helped the less fortu-
nate children of our community at Christmas
by sponsoring a toy drive. Students were
asked to bring old and new toys to be dis-
tributed. VICA club adviser, Mr. Benfield,
stated, HI feel thatthe toy drive is important
because it gets the kids involved in helping
out in our community. " Last year the VICA
Club collected 500 toys to give away and used
200 dollars to buy new toys. For this good
deed, the VICA club has received a plaque
from the Gaston Community Action for the
past three years. The club is very proud of this
accomplishment and recognition.
Along with the toy drive VICA has been of
some service to us in other ways. They
donated 50 dollars for the large plant in the
main office and they helped to recover the
fumiture in the library by donating money.
Also, VICA buys a gift for an under-
privileged child for the Student Council
program each Christmas.
Mr. Eller is the adviser of the DECA Club.
The DECA Club has 35 members who also
get early release because of jobs and receive
two credits for this class.
The DECA Club offers service to the
school by running the school store each day so
the students can get their needed supplies.
Members of the club volunteer to work and
they altemate each week. The club does not
make a profit from the store. All the money
goes to the school.
DECA also helps out in the school by being
in charge of the barbeque delivery each year.

The French Club is advised by Mrs. Jana
Lefevers. She feels being an adviser gives her
"an opportunity to see the students use their
French skills in outside activities including
community service projectsfi The main
requirement for being a member is to be
enrolled in a French class. Tina Revels, vice-
president of the club stated, "I am a member
of the French Club because of my interest in
the French language and I enjoy using my
abilities to help others."
The Spanish Club has Sheridan Provost as
an adviser. She "really enjoys working with
students who have a special interest in
Spanish beyond the classroom. " One must be

Aside from both being foreign lanaguage
clubs, the French and Spanish Clubs share
many other similarities. Both organizations
meet once a month. Their treasury is built
from club dues. The two clubs worked closely
together on community service projects.
They took gifts and candy to the children in

members of both clubs sang original Christ-
mas carols to sick children at Gaston
Memorial. The two clubs had plans for more
service projects throughout the year. Sonda
