et's FACE IT, the reason we buy the yearbook is
to see something very basic, common, and
appealing - OUR FACES. In this book we'll find:
pretty FACES, pizza FACES, false FACES, nerd
FACES, fuzz FACES, fat FACES, made-up FACES,
bored FACES - ALL KINDS OF FACES!
FACING '87-'88 gave us the opportunity to FACE
choices, FACE reality, FACE fun, FACE pressures
and FACE facts. As you look through this copy ofthe
'88 Northern Lights you'll see people FACING the
music, FACING off, FACING each other, and FAC-
You'll see happy FACES and sad FACES, funny
FACES and mad FACES, FACES in the crowd,

etting older means maturity, and maturity means making
choices. As you grow older your choices range from: de-
ciding what to wear, doing homework, coming to school, selec-
ting a oollege, and whether or not to do drugs.
Making these choices isn't easy, especially making
choices about drugs and alcohol. Realizing these choices
were hard. Troy Garrison, the leader of the Celebration of
Youth Workshop was brought in to aid us in making the
right choices. "This workshop is about choices. You have
a choice to become a victim by going out on Friday and
Saturday nights doing things that could destroy you and
your families lives. But you are in control here, not your
parents or your friends, but you!" explained Troy.
Another serious choice is choosing your friends, espe-
cially if they do drugs. Having friends that do drugs can
lead to serious consequences such as losing them as
friends or losing them more permanently. Junior Sherman
Miller discussed this matter when he stated, "I have lost a
huge number of my friends due to drugs and alcohol.
When I chose not to use drugs or alcohol they saw me as a
threat to our friendship."
Kids get kids into drugs, and kids get kids out of drugs.
What will you do! Make a choice and face it! Stephanie
Michael and Darren Turner.

t's two o'clock in the morning and you still have two more
pages to type on a research paper due tomorrow. You
know that you shouldn't have put it off until now, but there
were so many other things you had to do. Now the equiva-
lent of an exam grade hangs in the balance. The tension in
your stomach fights the weight of your eyelids.
Facing stress is an everyday event. Everyone has
demands made upon them. It may be harder for high
school students because of the newness of it. Now you
have to worry about getting the grades to get into college,
about playing well enough to get on the team, about play-
ing well enough to be on a winning team. There never
seems to be a quiet moment for yourself, to stop and find
out who you are, to decide slowly and surely what you
really want. Instead, life becomes a runaway ride on a
carrousel gone crazy. Grades, dating, job, car, social
status, and the looming question of the future all combine
to make a heavy weight to carry. They make the face worn,
tired, and give it the lines that come with maturity. The rea-
son seniors look so different from freshman is not just that
they are four years older, but they are tested and tried, by
four years of stress.
But, relax and remember that the seniors survived their
time here. After all, just as the pain of working out gives
you increased ability to perform, so do the stresses of each
day give you increased strength to handle the next year.

ooking in the mirror makes you look at your face. As
you get up each morning you have to decide what
face you'll wear for the day. Actually, you'll need several
faces, so looking in the closet you select several to take
Arriving at school, you slip into your "I am so cool face"
as your friends approach. Later, as class begins you put
on your serious "I am really getting into this" face for the
teacher. When the teacher believes your face and asks
you a question, its time for a quick change to your "never
let them see you sweat" face.
As the day goes on you hide your feelings behind the
handy mask of your face, or use it to let the whole world
know how you feel.
Still later, an annual photographer comes along and you
bring out your "I am really a ham" face with expressions
your face seldom gets to make. Its fun to let your face have
a moment of freedom.
Then its back to work as you go to your bus and prepare
to go home where you plan to let your face relax and just
be a tired face after a long day's work. Stephanie Michael
and Darren Turner.

10 X Facing Fun
ou've faced choices, faced stress, and established your face,
it's time to face fun! School is not all work, there are fun times,
times we'll remember long after we've forgotten how to solve for 'x' or
what the eight parts of speech are.
Fun has many facesg the faces of freshmen, sophomores, juniors,
and seniors cheering loudly at a pep rally as the cheerleaders lead
chants that make the pulse race and the voice hoarse: the faces of our
opponents as our football team sweeps to victory on a cool fall evening
while we snuggle with our boyigirl friend. Now that's fun!
A major factor in the fun level of life is acquiring a driver's license.
Usually sophomores experience this thrill and enjoy the freedom of
not depending on a family chauffeur.
Juniors have the delight jand agonyl of planning the prom. This so-
cial highlight ofthe season encourages everyone to put on their best
face land clothesj in order to make a memorable evening.
Seniors have the ultimate fun of graduation. After four years of
classroom lectures, homework, tests and exams, the anxiety of apply-
ing to college, or looking for that first job it's time to take the diploma in
hand and head for the beach!
Freshmen, look what lies ahead for you. Wipe that smile off your
face, you've got three more years!
Most people think of school as all work and no play. When you look
back on your life here at North, the memory of the work may fade, but
you will definitely remember the fun and the faces. Stephanie Michael
and Darrin Turner.

Who Cares?. . .Seniors Do!
Ithough the bloodmobiie might be
the favorite hangout for those blood
sucking creatures of the night like vam-
pires and such, it is a vital event for many
Americans every day.
Many times life or death is determined
by the supply of donated blood for victims
of automobile accidents and various life-
Red Cross workers who sponsored the
annual blood drive Feb. 23, 1987 said that
most of the blood they get comes from
school drives. Since donors must be
seventeen years old to give blood, many
of our donors were seniors.
Students at North have traditionally led
the county in collecting the most units.
With a goal of around one hundred twenty
pints, over half are given by first-time
donors. First timer Krista Hicks com-
mented, "Even though there was a little
discomfort, I felt great because I was
helping someone." Others, like Mrs. Sue
Bryan added to their gallon totals.
Students who helped set up, clean up
and man the various tables in the gym
were the Health Occupations classes and
the H.O.S.A. club members. "We
couldn't accomplish all of this without the
help of the students," comments Mrs.
Sally Hutchison, "and they learn a great
deal in preparing for the bloodmobiie and
working all day."
Seniors who ignored their fear of needles
and blood were proud of their unselfishness,
realizing that they may have saved a life.
As for the night creatures . . . they are

straight to the lab for processing - there's
not a drop to drink! Jason Plummer

Senioritis is a disease confined to in-

four years to fully develop. The only
known cure is a graduation ceremony, You
can examine yourselffor symptoms ofthis
disease by looking for the following.

senioritis find themselves looking at
calendars to check weekends and
holidays. The victims then will be heard to
mutter such phrases as "Can't wait until

what's on at the movies?" Other early
stage clues to this insidious disease are:
daydreaming, sleeping in class, and star-
ing out the window.
2. As the disease progresses, victims
begin to think up elaborate schemes to
get out of class. They may leave home,
bound for school only to lose conscious-
ness and wake up at the mall.
3. In the final stages, victims feel com-
pelled to fill out SAT forms, college appli-
cations, scholarship forms, and even take
brochures for the military services.
At last the victim can only be measured
for a cap and gown before realizing the
only cure - a stroll across the stage of

Most seniors would agree that the
BEST privilege is that of exempting the
dreaded final exams. Those seniors smart
enough to come to school every day and!
or make good grades avoided final exams.
This reduced the pressure of having to
pass the big test in order to graduate.
Another privilege that the seniors en-
ioyed was early dismissal for lunch. For
seniors whose stomachs growled angrily
begging for food, this was a blessing. As
the rest of the underclassmen ran to the
lunchroom doors only to be met by a long

A sound the seniors waited three years
for was that of "All rise for the seniors." As

were greeted with unfriendly ieers and
envious looks from those who were stand-

looked because this was the privilege that

ey! You! Wake Upl I know it's fourth
period and you've just had lunchg it's
warm and your desk top begins to look as if it
was a big beige pillow. You see your teacher
and try your hardest to listen but the more
you listen the farther away the voice goes.
Boom! Your face crashed on top of your desk
and you finally wake up only to be met by the
disappointed staring eyes of your teacher.
Ask any junior in a fourth period class right
after lunch how hard it is to stay awake and
they'Il tell you that it is definitely a hard job! lt
must be natural for the body to sleep after its
need for food has been filled.
Some fourth period teachers understand
how hard it is to stay awake but only a very
small percentage will let this pass. But be-

y the Junior year, students have mastered
the "Homework Game," through lots of te-
dious trial and error during the first two years of
high school. Juniors have discovered a unique
method of doing homework without the aid of a
pen, pencil or brain.
The object of the "Homework Game" was to
make the grade without doing the work. As the
deadlines for homework grew nearer, students
began seeing images of the merciless
teachers' greedy hands, grabbling for the
homework assignments. After mental pictures
like these, students began playing musical
notebooks to get the work completed. Some
even paid to let their fingers do the walking
through unfamiliar notebooks. ln urgent cases,
when no field trips or assemblies provided

After waking up on deadline day with only a
blank sheet of paper, juniors had to trick their
teachers into giving them extra time by means
of the EXCUSE. 'tl ran out of notebook paper
and all the stores were closed because the city
was in a blackout." "My brother and I were fight-
ing onthe way to school today and he threw my
homework out the car window." "My mother ran
out of diapers for my baby sister, and my home-
work and a roll of tape were lying nearby . .

teachers enjoyed the various stories and usu-

ophomore in Latin literally
means, "wise fool". The
second year is meant to
be an eventful, informative experi-
ence. Even things as important as
class elections can be fun.
The fact that once again, sopho-
mores have elected all female
officers was unexpected. These
l"wise fools" elected as their
lleaders: Monique Ruffin, president,
lTracie Maynard, vice-presidentg
'Malva Clement, secretary, and
Rhea Milton, treasurer.
With no homecoming floats, class
officers had to find a substitute for
participation. Officers generated en-
thusiasm through the building of
dummies for class competition.
Tracie Maynard expressed, "I wish
that homecoming floats had not
been taken away, without them, we
really weren't that involved. "

displayed their need to be different
by electing all female officers. These
ladies have helped to lead the way to

CLUBS CLEAN UP
n addition to the Octagon Club
that washed activity buses, sev-
eral clubs found a way to improve the
looks of things around school. Club
members worked after school and on
teacher workdays to clear up and replant
the central courtyard. Each group had an
area to work with and decided on and
bought the plants they used.
Industrial Arts students built attractive
borders with logs to separate the planting
areas from the walkways.
Using the advice and actual plants of
some teachers, by the time cold weather
arrived, new trees, shrubs and perennial
plants were in the ground.
The organizations worked on many
other service oriented projects during the
year, but most who participated in the
courtyard cleanup felt good about the liv-
ing results of their efforts.

OCTAGON CLUB Q...
A club that has potential.
an you imagine riding
around in a dirty bus
with words like "wash me" and
"back off" stenciled in the dirt?
Well, theOctagon club did you
a favor. In October they took
time out of their busy after-
noon schedules to wash the
activity buses so you could
ride to ball games and on trips
without the embarrassment of
slang remarks written all over
Do you remember the
twisted, dead and ugly plants
in the courtyard? Thanks to
the Octagon Club tin conjunc-
tion with other school clubsj
the ugly courtyard is now lush
greenery that will invite you to
be in the presence of it on a
warm sunny spring day.
When Regina Perry was
asked what was the best thing
about the club she stated, "So
far this year the Octagon Club
has enhanced my desire to
beautify my school and its sur-
roundings. l hope my attitude
rubs off on more students so
our school can be a showcase
to the public."
The Octagon Club could be
for you if you like improving
your surroundings and feeling
good about yourself. Chad
Cook took time out to say "I
feel the Octagon Club really
has the potential to become
one of the best clubs in the
school. All it will take is more
participation from its mem-
bers." Amy Hammond

Marketing managers at work
ECA is the student or-
to develop future leaders in the
fields of marketing, merchan-
dising and management. The
club is open to all students en-
rolled in any of the courses
offered by the Marketing Edu-
cation Department tcourses
taught by Bell or Siwinskil. The
purposes of DECA are to de-
velop education in marketing
which will contribute to occu-
pational competence and to
promote understanding and
appreciation for the reponsibi-
lities of citizenship in our free,
competitive enterprise system.
DECA is one of our school's
most active organizations with
a full calendar of activities year
round. DECA began this year
with election of chapter
officers and individual class
officers. A candlelight cere-
mony was held in the school li-
brary for installation of officers
and induction of new
members. DECA members
designed an exhibit for the
Rowan County Fair using this
years DECA theme: "Free En-
terprise in Building Your Fu-
ture" to emphasize the three
parts of Marketing Education:
class, on-the-job and DECA
activities. Students attended
the following district activities:
Leadership Conference at
Wingate College in October,
Officers Training at Sun Valley
High School in December and
Competitive Events in Salis-
bury Mall in January. DECA
members attended their 3 day
State Career Development
Conference in Charlotte in
March where they were
presented the three star
Roses Chapter Activities
Award for outstanding chapter
participation in the yearly
program of youth acitivity.
The highlight of the year
was the twelfth annual Fash-
ion Show presented to the
student body in April. Bonnie

Those students in Le Circle

enjoyed themselves at club
meetings once a month when
they watched French movies,
played games and learned
about the French culture.
Mrs. Anne Briggs, one of
the advisors said, "I enjoy
teaching French this year, I
am learning along with the
students." The other advisor
Mrs. Elizabeth Bartlett en-
72 I French Club
joyed sharing students and
club duties with Mrs. Briggs.
The club went to Ft.J.
Reynolds High School in
Winston-Salem to see a live
theatre production of
"L'Avare." The story, about a
miser, was done in both French
and English. Mary Weeks
said, "I really enjoyed the
play, it was very interesting."
lf Le Circle Francais
members ever go to France,
they will have an advantage
over the students who didn't
take French. They would be
able to order correctly in a
French restaurant and avoid
the embarrassment of a waiter
bringing a burning towel in-
stead of real food!
Senior Paul Blount made
the trip to France last summer
to live with a French family. "It
really wasn't too hard to com-
municate," said Paul, "and I
had a terrific time."
Hopefully more club
members will be able to expe-
rience French culture first-
hand in the future.

Making A Musical
Whole school involved.
hy would anyone want to
produce a musical? You
have to spend lots of money on
sets, props, costumes, and the
right to use scripts, musical
scores, stage manager and direc-
tor's books. David Crews, assis-
tant director and actor of Oliver
stated, "Being a director and
actor takes lots of time and pa-
tience. " That's just the beginning.
After selecting a musical whose
staging requirements don't ex-
ceed the national debt, comes the
trauma of auditions. Everyone
wants to be a star, but a specific
part requires a specific actor or
actress. So for everyone who does
get a part there are several people
who have their hopes crushed.
Now things begin to get really
complicated. To produce a musi-
cal such as "Oliver", the director
must have assistants who will
train dancers, singers, and musi-
cians. Then, once the initial
scenes have been committed to
memory, the actors must re-

member their lines, their songs,
where they are supposed to be
and when to be there.
Musicals sound impossible to
produce. Producers need the
courage of a terrorist negotiator,
the patience that comes only with
experience, and a stomach that
can tolerate a lot of aspirin.
Practice follows practice. Ac-
tors continue to forget lines, miss
their cues or hit the wrong notes. It
seems that perfection is only a
Suddenly, without warning, it's
opening night. The cast pulls
together and the show goes on.
The curtain finally goes down as
the applause pours over the foot-
lights. You've done it. You've been
part of something so complex and
challenging it seemed impossible,
and now the applause sweeps
away the last of the butterflies that
seemed the size of 747's when
the cunain first went up.
Now you see why people do
musicals. David Crews

Taking time to assist others
he Anchor Club is a
girl's service organi-
zation sponsored by the Pilot
Club of Salisbury. The club
meets once a month after school.
Do you remember those hot
days at the beginning of the
school year? The members
helped relieve the heat by sell-
ing sno-cones after school.
The profit from the sale of
sno-cones went to the Christ-
mas Angel Tree Program at
the,Salisbury Mall and to the
Bearthes' family, former
graduates of North, after the
death of their mother.
The club showed they were
community service oriented
through-out the whole year.
They cleaned the trophy case
in the lobby, along with doing
other things in the school year.
The club also helped the
elderly clean their yards and
members went to a Christmas
party for the mentally ill at the
First Methodist Church in Salis-
bury, where they helped to
pass out gifts and serve food.
The Anchor Club contrib-
uted more time to the commu-
nity than most other clubs and
considered themselves the
number one club. Angela

Club members learn about health careers.
as a profession in the
medical field ever
crossed your mind? If so then the
HOSA club was for you. It was
made up of students interested in
a medical profession.
In order to learn more about
their future profession, the club
attended several conventions.
These trips included a tour of the
health department and the state
convention in Raleigh. The club
also hosted the Region Vl HOSA
competitive events here at the
school March 4.
This year the club has taken an
active role in helping their school
and community. Their many ac-
tivities have shown their concern
through such activities as spon-

a change in requirements for

juniors have to have a 93 aver-

A Dead language comes
on't let it be said that
Latin is a dead language
because the Latin club proved
it was not. One of the main
events for the club was a trip to
UNC at Asheville. The Fall Fo-
rum was very competitive and
the students that attended
placed in several events.
Some of these events in-
cluded: track, chariot race,
softball and frisbee throws,
and swimming. The weekend
also included lectures and an
academic test which all
students had to take.
The Latin club students had
two major Latin parties. One of
them was a mythological mon-
ster party where students had
to choose a monster from
Floman or Greek mythology
and make a costume. Amy
Hammond stated, "Pre-
paring the monster costumes
gave me the chance to learn
and better understand Roman
and Greek mythological mon-
In December the club had
an lo Saturnalia party at Tara
Jackson's house. The club
sang Christmas carols in Latin
and exchanged gifts. To add to
the Christmas festivities the
club sold candy and santa
helpers to help raise money.
The money went toward the
annual J.C.L. convention in
Chapel Hill. When Alison
Smith was asked about the
trip she replied, "The Latin
trips are great opportunities to
meet people, have fun, and
learn more about Latin."
The club also bought
azaleas for the courtyard to
help add liveliness. The Latin
club had a great year and they
hope they can continue the
tradition. Leigh Millikin

ho cares what the an-
nual staff did all year?
The only people who ever read
this page are the annual staffers
and they know what they did.
By the time the book comes out
in May, the whole school has
heard the belly-aching from year-
bookers who gave up Saturdays
and weeknights, and they've
seen the blur of staffers running
around to get interviews or just to
get away form Mrs. Burgin and
Mr. Crews. Why have a "show
and tell" for those who have seen
and heard it all?
We risk being redundant and
show ourselves for the same
reason people periodically look
through photo albums - we're
FAMILY and we like to remind
ourselves of the times we've had.
Our family has grown from an
unrelated group of twenty kids
fparented by two aliens from an-
other generationl to a closely knit
group who could do anything -
and frequently did . . .
Like normal families we suf-
fered through temper tantrums,
missed curfews fdeadlinesl and a
few bad report cards. We enjoyed
birthday parties, traveling lto
workshops, around town, and to
Hunter Publishingt, and playing
trash can basketball.
Whether any one else cares or
not, the people on the Northern
Lights staff feel fortunate to have
been together this year, and we
consider this yearbook creation
our family album for 1988. Becky

"X K W
hile figures don't lie, liars
figure." Mark Twain was
once heard to comment. Well figure
this. Here are some figures com-
piled about a day in the life of a
student . . .
Did you realize that the average
student, in this case Stereotype Ste-
ven, starts his day at 7:00 a.m. while
55.670 of his friends choose 6:30
a.m. and the other 44.470 choose
After Stereotype Steven finishes
getting up he will probably eat his fa-
vorite breakfast, which is cereal, sit-
ting there he realizes that 55.2'Vo of
his friends are munching on
pancakes and 44.870 of his lesser
acquaintances are eating biscuits.
Then immediately after breakfast
Stereotype dashes out the door and
hops into his favorite car, a Camaro,
and turns on his favorite radio sta-
tion 97.9 WPEG. On the way to
school he sees 61.746 of his friends
driving Mustangs, and the other
48.370 must be rich for luckyj be-
cause they drive Lamborghinis. On
the way, 91.370 tprobably the ones
who drive mustangsl Jam to 98.7
WKSI and a few other f8.7tyo to be
exactl listen to 92.3.
When our model student finishes
a few classes at our great institution
of learning, he will get hungry.
Therefore, he eats, but what does
he choose? HP nhnoses ham-
burgers from the cafeteria, while
No this isn't Sterotype's Camaro, it belongs to
Greg Williams, with Dan Livasy riding
shotgun. Photo by A. Kluttz.
62.570 of his buddies, who are not
so picky, eat whatever is there.
37.5'Vo of the people he knows must
not be good friends because they
don't eat lunch with him in the cafe-
When school is over he is hungry
again tThose afternoon classes are
real killersl. Where does our stereo-
typical student head? He heads to
get himself another hamburger. He
also invites his friends to go along,
but only 347, tag along to get a
cheeseburger. The other 6670
choose to go get pizza.
About this time he decides to go
home. What does he do at home?
He checks out the tube to see when
his favorite T. V. show comes on. He
finds out that the "Cosby Show"
comes on at 8:00. While he is wait-
ing he goes and kisses his mother
for fixing his favorite dinner, steak.
After he finishes watching the
"Cosby Show" he calls up 62.570 of
his friends to find out they watched
"Growing Pains" and the other
37.570 of his friends that he didn't
call, watched "Alf". As for dinner,
62.570 enjoyed pizza as their culi-
nary delight and chicken was con-
sumed bythe additional 37.570.
Since 55.604 of his friends go to
bed at 10:00 p.m., he had to get off
the phone by then. As for the
remaining 44.4'Vo they go to bed
whenever. So by 11:00 p.m. Stere-
otype Steven finishes his day.
Our information about Stereotype Steven
was gathered from a student survey. Any
similarity between his story and actual hap-
penings is purely intentional.

Okay, maybe these things don't
happen every day. Unless, of
course, you spend your days in the
movie theatre. The film industry is
constantly producing more movies
based on fantasy and unrealistic
events such as playing babysitter to
a bigfoot like the Henderson family
so willingly did in the 87 movie
"Harry and the Hendersonsf' Not
many people would take a monster
into their home and treat it as one of
the family. And it is not every day
you come in contact with a man-

Horrors." According to avid movie
goer Michael Gobbel, the latest

school students if you just look
around. Megan Weaver and Brie

you a young man chews on a pencil while to your
right a bubble pops softly over the bubble gum
chewer's face. Ahead of you a girl twists her hair.

have acquired habits.l Annoying habits are easy
to come by but so hard to get rid of. If only medical
science could come up with a cure for bad habits,
short of electric shock treatments! The common
cold will probably be cured before such common
bad habits as described here.
Have you ever had a conversation with a hair
twister? Annoying, wasn't it? There you were try-
ing to talk but your eyes kept going up to their
fingers twisting through their hair. As you continue
to converse, the suspense mounts. Will they pull
their hair out? Will they be bald before they gradu-
ate? They are probably not aware that as tension
and frustration mounts, hair knotting begins.
You know that they are not listening, even when
they say they've heard every word, but they can-
not repeat a single word you said. This person is
the chronic day-dreamer. With scores of things on
students' minds - academic and otherwise - al-
most everyone can identify with the day-dreamer.
Have you ever loaned a pencil to someone who
returned it in such a condition that you were sure it
had been attacked by beavers? Pencil chewers
destroy thousands of pencils every year, leaving
behind disgusting, wet stubs of wood. Although a
helpful tool for relieving stress, the pencil chewer
obviously didn't listen when his mother told him
about all the diseases he could catch by putting
unsanitary objects in his mouth!
Don't they know that besides raising the risk of
cavities, they also standing the chance of having
that bubble pop all over their face? So what if it
pulls their eyebrows off? They grow back, right?
Maybe it is just an amusing way to entertain them-
selves, or feed their sugar habits.
Many of these habits seem to have therapeutic
effects for the individuals involved, but can create
stress and annoyance to others around them.

Sitting on your bed, you sense it
beginning to float higher and higher
to a place where no parents have
gone before - The Bedroom Zone.
This is the place where you can be
the winner of all arguments, the rock
star or famous actor, and the creator
of many fantasies. Some parents
would just love to be a fly on the wall
to catch a glimpse of you behind
those four walls. 'fActually my mom
would rather not come into my
room, explained Chris Crowell,
"because the mess is too depres-
sing for her.
lf your room could talk, it could tell
more about you than anyone else in
the world. It has seen you asleep,
awake, happy, sad, hysterical, silly,
and occasionally serious.
lt is about the only thing a teen-
ager can call his own. Parents can't
violate it and brothers and sisters
dare not step one foot into it.
Chevelle Jones said, "lt's MY
room and my sister knows better
than to come in." Although family
members are forbidden, pets and
friends are usually allowed in. Your
friends enjoy seeing all the new
things you've done to your room and
sometimes help with repainting and
The main reason you enjoy being
in your room is because it is a refuge
from all the troubles of the world. It
has the ability to soothe feelings
bruised by others. Those others are
often told to "Get outta my room!"

Of course things like these don't happen every day. If they did,
they would become as routine as brushing your teeth in the
morning. The infrequency of these events combined with the
essential factor of laughter came together to make these

Yes, Chad Queen is doing more than
breaking the monotony of an assembly.
Dressed as California raisins, twardrobe by
Heftyl and dancing to Marvin Gaye's ver-
sion of "I Heard it Through the Grapevine," the
annual staft found a unique way to promote
yearbook sales. The message was that
students should not count on hearing what
goes on through the grapevine, they should buy
an annual. Sports reporter Jim Young said that
he "never had this much fun selling things
before." Photo by T. McNeely.
Who ever said school was all books and lec-
tures? While some students work well with tra-
ditional methods, others are happiest when
they are investing time in things that require
more of a creative input. Chris Weaver, who
won first and third places in the Spring Art Show
for his photography, believes that "doing
something creative can take your mind off
things long enough to let you relax and enjoy
yourself." Pictured with Chris are some of the
other art show winners Eddie Riley, Luther

Not many people dress like this every day. For
most students such an opportunity arises only once a
year on the first Saturday in May.
The '87 Prom, with the theme "Come Share My

more glamourous life than usual. The elaborate pre-

Who wants to spend their summer vacation
attending classes, listening to teachers, and doing
homework? Most teenagers use their summer break
to relax and escape the structure of the classroom,
but a few students took advantage of some of the
many summer programs offered throughout the
state. With leadership and yearbook camps plus
other seminars, senior Darrin Turner complained, "l
was only home about two weeks all summer!"

Current events usually presented at school deal
with the crisis in the Middle East and political
scandals, but rarely involve the fashion industry. Last
year's "Walk This Way" fashion show previewed the
latest designs in sportswear, swimsuits, and formal
wear. "l enjoyed being able to model clothes l don't

ummern. lbum + erl slang: an
That's a bummer to Websters Col-
legiate dictionary, but when does a
bummer really happen? For some it
is probably different than others. Af-
ter all, not every "unpleasant experi-
ence" happens to everyone.
For some it may have to deal with
getting a date, like Melissa Sec-
reast who said it's a bummer when
"I meet this really good looking guy
and he stands up and is four inches
shorter." For Carole Oakes it's a
bummer when "You get a date with
this real hunk of a guy and he shows
up with his girlfriend."
Most bummers are small ones
that deal with basic every day ex-
periences. Sleeping through your
alarm clock, a thunderstorm alter
you washed and waxed your car, a
power outage when you're working
on a computer, and running out of
gas are examples of such an-
Others are a bit more extreme.
Steve Stoner thinks it's a bummer
when "You dive off of a diving
board and your swimming trunks
fall off. " An anonymous student said
that "the ultimate bummer is getting
a final grade of 68 in English."
While bummers may be different
for different people, probably Chris-
tie Nichols probably summed it up
best for most of the seniors by say-
ing, "lt's a bummer when you get
seniorltis the first day of school."

ets face it, facts are important.
However, the ability to take facts
and break 'em down, build 'em up, apply
'em to new situations and create some-
thing original with 'em is what high school
should be about.
In this computer age, facts are easy to
come by - information from the world's
libraries can be accessed from the home
School is becoming the place to teach
where and how to get the facts, but more
importantly, how to use them.
Although all the courses at North are
not considered "academic," in the sense
that they all provide tools to relate to, un-
derstand andior manipulate the things
around us, courses from Art, Auto Me-
chanics and Phys. Ed. to English Chemis-

his year, students quickly found out
that the best part of being in school
was being out of class. Students were of-
ten given a break from the routine class-
room assignments and were revitalized
by the "hands-on" experiences of field
trips. "I feel that a field trip every now and
then refreshes a student's mind and
helps him or her to become more inter-
ested in the course. It is also a great so-
cial enhancement," commented
Although field trips were held to a mini-
mum this year, this didn't dampen the
spirits of many ecstatic students. "I think
that since the number of field trips were
cut in half, I started to take more advan-
tage of this time by concentrating and
asking more questions," expressed An-
Many teachers were often enthused
whenever a field trip was planned. lt not
only gave them a break from their daily
planning schedules, but yes, they also
learned something new. "I think they're
great! It's a good learning experience for
students. They see things in action instead
Of words," suggested Mrs. Wilson.
Many students took field trips for
granted. Often times fun concealed the
hard labor needed for their preparation.
The phone calls, the counting of heads,
the question of lunch, the arranging for
transportation, and the spending of
money were all necessary for a success-
ful trip. As strange as it may seem, field
trips were not all fun and games. Regina

Vocational classes pave the road for tomorrow.
ftentimes, practical knowledge can
be more important than "book
smarts." This was discovered by many of
North FZowan's students this year.
Vocational classes were often enjoy-
able and provided a much-needed
change in the schedules of students. As
Jamie Sloan said, "Accounting is fun. It
shows me how to balance my money. It
also shows me how big companies are
run and how they budget themselves."
But possibly one of the best aspects of
vocational classes was that they provided
the perfect opportunity to gain practical
knowledge. Through hands-on experi-
ences, students received a working un-
derstanding of helpful information and
developed skills they can use in real life.
Occupational classes also gave
students an idea as to whether they were
suited for certain careers in order to
grepare for the future. "These classes
elp to meet the needs of the current job
market by giving practical experience in
the classroom," commented Mr. Sutton,
who taught Data Processing and Key-
"Lives revolve around jobs. Vocational
classes eventuallv benefit our entire
society," "expressed Mrs. Ramsey, who
taught several business classes. Voca-
tional classes gave self-satisfaction,
taught important ideas, and provided val-
uable skills. Through these courses,
students can have successful and fulfill-
ing futures because they will be prepared.

achieved a great deal. Staffers overcame
the frustration of mental blocks and the
pressure of deadlines to produce four
issues of the newspaper.
In addition to more students with a
greater willingness to work hard, the staff
added cartoonist Tim Batten. As Laura

Marching Band works hard to learn new songs and new moves
Qihhing 'gigztrietg l
lthough band has been looked upon
as a "crip" course by non-band
members for years, this year's band members
did not seem to agree. There were often op-
portunities for fun, but being a band member
included a great amount of hard work for those
who had the ability and the discipline to partici-
pate. Marchers had to put their best foot for-
ward inot to mention their "correct" footy while
they tried to stay in straight, perfectly spaced
lines. The real challenge came, though, when
they had to play as they marched.
134 l Band
This year the band performed four different
shows which meant learning several routines
along with a great deal of music. Tine Safrit,
flag captain, commented, "The hard work
was definitely worth it as far as the variety it
offered the home audience since they be-
came bored with seeing the same show week
after week. This also gave band members
more incentive to work. "
The new approach to half-time shows was
designed to bring pride and support back to
the band as well as keep the audience glued to
their seats during half-time. "l recall the qual-
ity of the band when I was a freshmen. I only
hope that through dedication the band can be
that great again." said Tara Jackson, a se-
nior band member.
And what are the plans for the future March-
ing Cavaliers? Mr. Lipe, the band director, ex-
pressed, "We hope to try to do a variety of
shows, to represent the school the best way
we can at football games, and to go on trips to
rirliakfe band enjoyable for students." Krista

asked, "Are you sure this is
North Rowan's team?" After
years of average perfor-

of their slump to show their
true colors. As Brian Koontz
put it, "The potential has al-
ways been there. All we really

For the first time in quite a
while, North was once again

more importantly, the guys
proved that tennis was as wor-

great deal of racquet for the
tennis team and no doubt this
years team will find that win-
ning experience that will serve
to net them even more victo-
ries this year.

"During my Hrst year as a
cheerleader I felt uneasy in
front of a crowd. The routines
were new to me and I worried I
might forget something impor-
tant. Now, the routines are
second nature and I can con-

So often it is easy to forget
how hard cheerleading can
be. "I feel that the squad is
very good this year because
we are able to work and com-
municate together," said cap-
tain Parrish McDaniel.
Sure, it's easy when the
game is at home and the Cavs
are ahead 30-0, but what
about away games when
things are not going well for
the team? Then the
cheerleaders may be the only
friendly voices the team hears
after being chewed out by their
coaches and booed by the
crowd. Then cheerleaders be-
come vital to the spirit of the
team, for the cheerleaders are
out there doing nothing, but I
know from experience that
cheerleading is very hard. lt
takes alot of time and energy
to keep an upset crowd
somewhat enthused." said

Quest for zt all falls short
n August the football team
opened practice with hopes
of an undefeated season
and a possible state champion-
ship. These dreams were shat-
tered bythe West Rowan Falcons
in an unexpected 20-13 loss. The
loss stunned players and
coaches, but inspired more inten-
sity for future games.
They bounced back to beat
East Rowan, and then put
together the best second half of
the season to beat the defending
state champions from Lexington.
The game went into overtime and
a quick score by quarterback
Chris Sifford plus an unyielding
defense created the most exciting
finish of the season. Our archrival
might be Salisbury," said Chad
Queen, "but beating Lexington
was our best win of the year!"
The win put the Cavs in the top
conference spot and gave the
team renewed confidence.
Following this emotional vic-
tory, North downed its next four
opponents - Flandleman, Salis-
bury, West Davidson, and S.W.
Guilford. With the conference
championship in mind and in
reach, the homecoming game
with S.W. Guilford seemed
headed for disaster when the
Cavs rallied from a two touch-
down deficit to defeat the
The Thomasville game was a
case of being in the wrong place
at the wrong time. Following the
loss of their homecoming queen
in a tragic accident the previous
week, the Bulldogs played with
emotion and downed the Cavs in
a very sloppy game 42-13. The
loss brought disgust to the
players, but they rebounded and
defeated Ledford a week later.
The following two weeks were
disappointing for the team. First
they were stalemated by a deter-
mined E. Davidson team and fell
in overtime 10-7. Disaster struck
again as the Cavs traveled to
Monroe in their bid for a state
championship. The team fell
behind early and couldn't find
enough for another comeback
and ended the season with a bit-
ter loss. "We were a lot better
than our record showed,"
commented Chris Weaver. "We
just got a lot of bad breaks."
Although the varsity team will
lose many valuable seniors, the
returning players are looking for a
good season next year. "I feel the
upcoming season will be a
sensational one if everybody
works together." remarked Chris
The experience and leadership
gained this year will provide an
advantage in the championship
hopes o next year. Jim Young.

Behind the leadership of quarter-

James Houpe, the team
prevailed 34-14. The Cavs had a
poor showing against Salisbury,
but bounced back to defeat West
Davidson the following week.
ln the next two games the Cavs
played well, but again fell short to

scaring fans with it swooping air-
show. The game ended with play-

dered and amazed. This creature
seemed to characterize the season
the Cavaliers had experienced.
Beginning the season with
plenty of height and depth, the
team was expected to contend for
a championship. Returning
veterans and talented juniors
from an excellent J.V. team
proved too much for the Cavs
early season opponents. A big
front line and the scoring ability of
Ed Kelser and Brian Paige kept
the Cavs close in the early season
game with Salisbury, but turn-

Cavs a backbreaking blow. First,
Derrick Foxx was lost for the
season and Steve Roof was
benched due to illness. t'The loss
of Foxx and Roof really hurt us a

to the bench. These losses took
away from the height and depth.
The Cavs lost close games in the
final quarter due to foul trouble
and fatigue. Some people will
continue to wonder if North's batty
problems will end in time for a
chance in the spotlight. Jim

Mrs. Joyce Cline
More New Faces
eople who can answer incessant
phones, deal with frequent inter-
ruptions and numerous crises, while
maintaining sanity-with-a-smile are hard
to find. However, the new front office sec-
retary Mrs. Gray, and the new guidance
secretary Mrs. Cline, were two such
people found this year.
Although their jobs must have been
frustrating at times -- with a complicated
new phone system and several hundred
names and faces to put together, they
managed to treat all who needed their
assistance with patience and proficiency.
