senior follow-up day whe re she would find all of the last year ' s seniors and ask them if they were married, going to college, working, or in the military. " I provided college transcripts. I went around to colleges and talked to the previous year ' s graduates to find out how Perry ' s curriculum prepared them for college. " She scheduled representatives from colleges and the military to come in and talk to students. Guidance coimselor, Mrs. Nina Day commented, " After the redistributing of students to counselors, students from the same family had the same coimselor to deal with family problems together. We had peer tutoring sessions where we had a student volunteers to help someone in a certain subject during homeroom. We had LAB (Learn About Business) seminars where various people would come and talk about business and economics. Another project I supervised was Boys State and Girls State which was a one week seminar about govern- ment in action. The Hugh O ' Brien Youth Foundation had a special pro- gram for sophomores. The winners of the Lilly Endowment program for juniors went to a simimer camp and worked with inner city projects. The company based their selection on who had good community involve- ment and leadership qualities. " Perry Meridian High School ' s guidance department hosted the school ' s sixth Career Awareness Day. This program afforded jimior and senior students the opportunity to acquire firsthand information about careers that interested them from people who currently were employed in those careers. Students were able to choose among a wide variety of careers. Some of the areas covered were broadcasting, model- ing, mechanics, drafting, performing arts, journalism, advertising, child care, science, and hotel and motel management. Mayor William Hudnut spoke to students about careers in government while Prosecutor Steven Goldsmith spoke about a career in law. To lead the school was Mr. James Head, principal. To assist the prin- cipal. Perry had two assistant prin- cipals, Mr. Ron Bolyard and Mr. Robert Dunn. Mr. Head commented about many changes and improvements. " The adding on the building was a major improvement. The teachers, staff, department chairmen and the cur- riculum changed somewhat. This was the third year since busing of the northern community students be- gan. I had always thought that this was good because it gave students a taste of what life was like after graduation. The IDEA program for gifted freshmen and weighted grades was a change for better. Advanced placement was a college test where someone could have gotten some college credit if they got a high score. The North Central Evaluation made us a better school. Falcons Against Drinking and Drugs was a big improvement in the school because adults could have preached and preached about drugs, but students could have gotten through to the stu- dent drug taker better than their parents or counselors. We obtained lights for the tennis courts and a scoreboard for the football field. The writing lab in the English department was an addition for the better. Students went there to improve their writing skills. Communications were very important to Mr. Bolyard. He said that Perry students had two very good newsletters, the Perry Township Postmark and the PTA Communique, a good school paper, FOCUS, and a good yearbook, PASSAGES. He said that the morn- ing and afternoon announcements were also good. Mr. Dtmn said, " I liked to plan the master schedule, which was schedul- ing students to teachers, teachers to room, teachers to courses, and courses to periods. I helped organize the teacher ' s handbook and students handbook. I supervised the cafeteria and ball games, and I was the Student Council sponsor. " Mr. Bolyard stated, " I thought communications with the entire school and the community had im- proved by listing Perry Meridian ' s school events on cable T.V. The way of assigning lockers changed from through first period through homeroom. This let the student have more access to their lockers during homeroom. ADMINISTRATION 171

With an ending came a begin- ning where new magic and ex- citement were generated. It was carried to various aspects of Hfe as careers were actively pursued. Some students chose to graduate mid-term to get a job, support a family, or to com- mence college education. Along with these beginnings, others were apparent in the lives of students still attending classes at Perry. New faces in classes and the start of a new semester added to the enchantment of life. Enthusiasm for the future magnified the necromancy of spectacular possibilities. The sidewalk ended, and magic burst into beginnings. Editor ' s Note: As PASSAGES ' 84 went to press, for the first time in eight years. Falcon Magic carried the boy ' s basketball team to a Southport sectional crown. Head Caoch Bob Hynds attributed a portion of the 56-47 victory over the Howe Hornets to Perry ' s highly active cheer block. Scores for regional tourney will appear in PASSAGES ' 85. CLOSING 173
