Dedication Tabb High School Tabb, Virginia ■ ' Tabb Forfeits Traditi i Challenging the historic setting found throughout York] County, Tabb High School forfeited tradition to offer students a new, dynamic, and modern learning: ! opportunity. To the majority of the students Tabb was totally different. Several students questioned went as far as tq remark “I ' ve never seen anything like itl " Richard B. Miller Principal . 1 George H. Pope Superintendent ■ V. A Real “Cool " Place . . . Literally M The contemporary structure was designed by Oliver, Smith, and Cooke AIA Architects. Students and faculty described the symmetrical 1 54,000 square feet as " quite convenient. " The carpeting and air conditioning were highly commended. However, students did express a desire for " windows to see outside. " Situated on 30 acres of land, the building and property development was contracted to William Jordan, Incorporated, a company that overcame the technical problems to complete the assignment in fourteen months. Doors opened to the masses August 28th, 1 972. Built to accommodate 1250-1600 students, by September 5th, Tabb had only been blessed with 950 eager young students, since only the ninth, tenth, and eleventh graders attend is year. THE 1972-1973 YORK COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD Mrs. Willets Bowditch, Chairman Dr. Robert E. Fulton, Vice Chairman Mr. Cecil B. Heith a Mr. James C. Hopson Mr. Wilbur T. Covington »lr.- Is Facilities Designed for Student Needs Keeping in mind student interest, the architects designed facilities for the student, both in the crowd and os on individual. The auditorium, equipped with a large stage and prop rooms, was designed to seat 967 people. Here students, and members of the community as well, can attend band and choral concerts, student productions, civic meetings and assemblies. When the large auditorium is not necessary, two Kivas can be used to seat 1 32 people each and are ideal for lectures, club meetings and classes. Sports fans in the community and student body enjoy the large gymnasium, able to contain 1 600 boisterous spectators. For the sports requiring less space, such as gymnastics and wrestling, an equipped auxiliary gym is also available. Outside, a baseball diamond has been laid as well as ' plenty of room for physical education classes. Student facilities also include the two often most essential — the cafeteria and library. The cafeteria was .equipped to serve 400 students per block. The library was well stocked with references and new books ' Special attention was paid to the availability of .personal visual aids at the student’s disposal. s At meeting place im Departments Highlighted In accordance with the new variety of specialized subjects, classes were arranged for participation. The Drama department was designed with a small stage in the classroom where students can rehearse their 3-act play and spring musical. B Chorus rooms were constructed with the best acoustical design. Percy E. Ironmonger, bond director states that Tabb ' s band room " is one of the best designed and equipped on the Peninsula. " He comments that it is excellent to produce concerts with the chorus. Stage Band concerts, and results in Winchester. Art rooms are described as " the best to work with. " And business students feel as if they have already gone to work. " It’s practically an office. " TABS — A Picture of Change Students . . . Mirror? " Tabb High School — different from its outside edge to its inner-most crevice — is characterized by a new attitude, new technique, and by an effort to instill new interest. Will the students become a part of this? Whether it be buzzer or bell, carpet or tile, nine weeks or thirty-six, can Tabb make the innovations a reality? Somebody does want their children to learn. Will those 950 respond? The School Board thinks so. Mr. Miller, principal of Tabb, thinks so. The faculty thinks so. Well students. What do you say? Q Penfamesters Offer Subjects Tabb ' s faculty began their year with adopting the pentamester system of courses in lieu of the traditional full year subjects. In this system students choose four nine-week courses to be collaborated into one credit. This enabled students to choose areas of personal interest and to break d away from the full year routine. For example, students could learn communications skills, particular areas of literature speech, journalism, speed reading, or others instead of that standard requirement — English. With the adoption of this new system, days are shortened to six periods. - p “Somebody Sure Wants Us To Be Smart!!’’ This addition to the County ' s fine scholastic standing was financed through a local bond issue. It has been said statistics make one more appreciative. If so, the citizens of York County will be proud to know that the building alone totalled a cost of $3,091,584.12. Its surrounding property is valued at $140,000.00. However, interest was not solely taken in the school ' s outward appearance. $500,000.00 was spent on facilities to aid the student. " $3,731,584.1211! and that ' s not even including teacher ' s payl Somebody sure wants us to be smart! " — overheard. DEDICATION November 12, 1972 — 3:00 PM. Auditorium Richard B.

West Bethel Baptist Church Conducted Tours of the Building PROPF-j- Y op yORK Pu IBRARY YORK.1 V A- BEGINNINGS Even a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step . . . Lao-Tzu And so it was with Tabb High — the first step being the erection of the building. Pounding hammers and instructive cries from foremen became familiar sounds in the vicinity of the construction project. Everyone labeled it ‘‘the new high school,” but soon it was named, TABB HIGH SCHOOL! With the students came excitement and the beginning of another school year, TABB’S FIRST! The dormant halls were awakened by the spirited Tabb students. With them were brought new ideas in an effort to make Tabb rated top among neighboring high schools. The student body worked as one and successfully achieved this goal. From the willingness and cooperation of all classes emerged the foundation for even greater accomplishments to come. EDUCATORS embark in a broadened instructional program. A more relaxed and personalized itmosphere prevailed between the faculty and tudents throughout the first year at Tabb. The acuity met the many challenges of the new urriculum with enthusiasm. A week prior to the pening of school they met to make reparations for their new courses and new aces. Their hard work and enthusiasm ontinued throughout the year. 17 Administration After six years of being principal of York High, Mr. Richard Miller earned the privilege of being the first head master of Tabb High School. Inevitably, new schools are faced with a lot of problems, but with the cooperation of the student body, Mr. Miller was able to smooth out the rough spots and easily get Tabb into the swing of things. In his absence, Mr. Charles Cherry and Mr. Edwin Markoff took over the " high seat.” While Mr. Markoff headed sports, activities, and corralled school spirit, Mr. Cherry took care of disciplinary measures for problem students. 18 Opposite page: (right) Mr. Miller and Tabb ' s yearbook representative, Dan DeFalco, tour the Taylor plant in Dallas, (left) Mr. Miller and Mr. Pope during the reception at the dedication of Tabb High School, (bottom) Mr. Miller enjoys his new office, (top) Mr. Markoff makes arrangements for a school dance, (middle left) Mr. Markoff phones home for dry clothes, (middle right) Mr. Cherry reviews teacher evaluation forms, (bottom) Mr. Cherry discusses a discipline problem with Mrs. Wyche.

Mrs. Doriel Hawkins, nurse, treats patients with a smile, (bottom left). The visiting teacher, Mrs. L. Ivey, works with absentees, (bottom right). 21 Coordinating field trips, arranging speakers, and seeing that their departments ran smoothly were jobs assigned to Mr. Tom Doggins, Mrs. Elizabeth Smith, and Mr. Mike Wollard, the department directors. The team leaders provided textbooks for class use, kept records of subject matter taught in each class, assisted the teachers in their plans of instructions, and assisted guidance in assigning schedules for students and teachers. 22 Checking out books, keeping shelves straight, loaning projectors and providing just plain old information were jobs of our devoted librarians Mrs. Nettie Morgan (top) and Mrs. Cindy Ford (middle left). Mrs. McLean, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Howard, Mrs. Wilcox, Mrs. Wilshire, and Mrs. Hubbard, the teachers ' aides, were considered lifesavers by most every faculty member at Tabb. Taking on some of the teachers’ duties, the aides took a load off of many shoulders (middle right). The cafeteria staff, with their never ending duties, provided balanced lunches with added goodies five days a week (bottom). 23 Educators . . .

For some, the new pentamester system meant not only having to teach more than one subject, but also specifics under those subjects. Although this called for more work on the teachers part, they still managed to find time to sponsor various clubs, and help out with other extracurricular activities. 26 (fop) Before beginning class, Mrs. Harrell, annual staff advisor, finds time to sell a few subscriptions to members of her class, (middle) After assigning work to the rest of the class, Mr. Hunt goes over one of his student ' s papers with him.

Students were able to specialize in specific fields and appreciated the break in monotony. It offered t hem a new challenge and new tasks every nine weeks. Some students disliked the system because of the pressure put on them by the individualized work assignments, while others enjoyed working on their own. Much progress was made by the students in academic, extracurricular and athletic areas even without a graduating class. Juniors . . . Leading the Way 1973. . . For the class of 1 974 it was a year of indecision, uncertainty, and unpreparedness. No longer were we scornfully called underclassmen, but we now honorably held the title of upperclassmen — and upperclassmen we were. Without seniors at Tabb, the administration left the pace-setting up to the juniors. Eager to do good, well-qualified juniors petitioned for the right to run for class officers. With the guidance of the elected four and the unified efforts from the rest of the class members, a great and memorable year emerged.

Set Forth With Steady Pace For the sophomore class, the 1 972-1 973 school year meant no longer being low man on the totem pole. Now aware of what credits are all about, sophomores began realizing that high school is serious business. With this in mind the class of 75 focused on preparing for the future. Aided by the guidance department, they were introduced to the many vocational courses offered by Tabb High. The class officers helped the class put on a successful record hop after the guidance assemblies were finished.

Many stimulating experiencing were undergone and those who participated hastened to become involved with the activities that were to follow. Anxiety and joyful sensations were amidst the contenders for Miss Tabb High, Basketball Sweetheart and those participating in the school’s two plays. The Chorus and Band added to the thrill that went beyond all expectations. And the Ring Dance and Awards produced those special and exclusive moments for those most deserving. L 57 Kathy Collins crowned first Basketball Sweetheart For two weeks six Basketball Sweetheart nominees asked around school and their neighborhoods for contributions to their funds in order to become the Basketball Sweetheart. The girls raised money to help the cheerleaders go to the Apple Blossom Festival with the band. Collectively they raised approximately $500, with Kathy Collins being crowned Basketball Sweetheart by Coach Rowley with her collection of over $150. 58 Miss Tabb High Tabb High ' s first pageant was produced with few mistakes and Valerie Urie was crowned the first Miss Tabb High. But in the event of Valerie’s moving, Charlene Bowman, first runner up, claimed the title. Pam Terry was second runner up and Jana Tanner was Miss Congeniality. 59 A 60 Set on a college campus in the 1 920’s, Tabb High ' s first musical production. Good News, a comedy spoof, opened May 1 7 in the Tabb High auditorium. From the close of Thunder on Sycamore Street, Mrs. Pat Wright auditioned future actors and actresses for parts in the play. Mr. William Tew took charge of vocal direction while Mr. Percy Ironmonger directed the band. Because of Mrs. Barbara Zalumus ' help in straightening out technical problems, the play went on without a hitch. Lj Boys’ State — Girls ' State Three boys and three girls were chosen to attend Boys’ State and Girls’ State from our school. Boys’ State was held June 1 7-23 at Lynchburg College. Girls’ State was held the same week at Radford College. The boys elected were Lee Deskins, Mike Melo, and Eddie Wright. The alternatives were David Craig, John Prior, and John Dawkins. The girl delegates chosen were Vee Martin, Donna Newsome and Sue Bresee. Their alternates were Charlotte Anderson, Yvette Knott and Cheryl Rivers. Charlotte Anderson attended in the place of Sue Bresee. 62 February 24, 1 973 marked the climax of the year for most of the juniors. Renting tuxedos, buying gowns, and getting Dad ' s car for the evening were all events leading up to being at the Chamberlin Hotel at 9:30 p.m. Dancing to the music of the Newport News, juniors socialized amongst themselves and faculty members up until that magic moment. As Mr. Miller and Mrs. Jones passed out the rings, silly grins appeared on faces, as couples kissed and sat back down. “Let me see yours, " and “Turn mine,” became repeated phrases the remainder of the night. Most decided to call it a night at 1 2:30 and left with ear to ear smiles. 63 64 dn J 66 INVOLVEMENTS inspire school unity Being newly organized, the clubs of Tobb High School hod to first adopt charters and constitutions before plunging into their activities. After becoming organized, with a majority of the student body participating, many became involved in helping the community, acquainting its members with diversified aspects of life and enriching the composition of all they touched. SCA The SCA, under the leadership of John Dawkins — President, Pom Chambers — Vice President, Sharia Jones — Secretary, Vee Martin — Treasurer, and Anita Bradshaw — Chaplain, had a very successful year despite many difficulties.

Money making projects enabled them to attend the Apple Blossom Festival in Winchester, Virginia, emerging victorious with a fourth place trophy. The band, under the direction of Mr. Percy Ironmonger, performed at pep rallies, assemblies, in the musical, as well as in other parades. The musicians were proud to be the first to put a trophy in the showcase. 77 Majorettes The Tiger Majorettes marched to the rhythm of the Band throughout the 72-73 school year. They performed their way through pep rallies, football halftimes and Winchester revealing their excellence. (kneeling) Captain Debbie Tracey and Co-captain Brenda Barnes, (standing, I. to r.) C.

Barclay, R. Beeson, L Bresee, D. Colvin, C. Luke, J. Massay, S. Timmerman, L. Wooddell, Mrs. T. Lynn (advisor). oki, 0 . 3 " , A, K,. Photography Club 81 I Few people realize how much work goes into putting together a yearbook. Even the staff members didn’t know until this past year. Working after school 3 days a week for 1 V 2 hours proved to be an insufficient amount of time for laying out pages, cropping pictures, and writing copy. Members had to add non-activity bus days to their schedules as well as staying past 4:00 in order to meet deadlines. With the close of school and the coming of summer, the group found themselves in the middle of an incomplete book. Sheer determination inspired the staff and within 2 weeks of June 8, the Bengal was finished. 82 Staff Members R. Collins D. Biddle D. Shellhommer S. Earl A. McLean J. Tanner R. Maynard R. Roob C. Bowman M. Thomas M. Smith S. Baxter D. Colvin (Bus. Man.) C. Anderson (Co-editor) C. Rivers (Co-editor) S. Harrell (Advisor) Editor ' s Note . . . It seems as if an epidemic of inexperience plagued the whole 1 972-73 school year at THS. Following with, should I say “tradition,” the annual staff caught the disease also. For everyone on the staff, with the exception of Mrs. Harrell, working on the annual was a first. We realize many of the happenings around THS were left out, and we may not have given events and organizations that we did get full coverage. If this is so and you feel slighted, please have your club advisor contact Mrs. Harrell so we can correct our mistakes for next year. We feel that this first year was more or less a learning period and can assure you of bigger and better books in years to come. Editor 84 GAMES people play The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat was felt by the fans, coaches and competitors as THS experienced its first year of AAA competition without a senior class. While others doubted their ability the Tigers were determined to prove themselves as winners. It was a trying year; they lacked experience but they made up for it through hustle and dedication. The pride and spirit displayed by the fans was overwhelming. They supported their teams through victories and defeats. Although the losses heavily outweighed the wins, the determination, desire, and courage of the Tigers was very evident in all sports. I 85 Football kicks off winning season Hard hours of practice throughout the summer, along with routine workouts after school, proved to be worthwhile for the Tobb High football team. From the day of their debut, the mighty Tigers continuously chalked up victory after victory. Although Churchland marred an almost perfect record, the cheerleaders generated pep and kept the Tiger spirit flying high. With the return of the excellent coaching of Mr. Fred Mitchell and crew. Tiger fans can expect a repeat of season 1 . (top row, leh to right) J. Pearce, M. Scott, L. Wilson, R. Hubbord, J. Borbee, M. Lunsford, L. Taylor , D. Brown, C. Engle, B. Bolender, D. Walton, C.

The Cross Country Team ran hard and their determination kept them from quitting. After school they could be seen huffing and puffing around the school, but they didn’t stop, just kept on running. Even after the season was over Danny Cheek could still be seen running the course, even in the rain. The team has gained experience, knowledge, and confidence from their first season. Next year, a girl may be eligible to join the team. There are high expectations for Tabb High’s second Cross Country season, thanks to the efforts of Coach George Coulter this past year. Girls basketball bounces to victory The Girl’s Basketball team under the coaching of Mrs. Marilyn Anderson brought a triumphant season to their Tiger fans. The team proved their worth with a final record of 7 wins — 3 losses. Their teamwork and skill earned them 2nd in the district and good chances of becoming No. “1 " next year. (kneeling, I. to r.)

Up against more experienced opponents, the Tiger sophomore and junior squad put out a 1 00% effort every game. Inspired by Coach Rowley, the team hungered for a victory. After humiliating games in coming so close to catching our prey, the Tigers finally made the Ferguson Mariners their victims. 92 (kneeling, I. fo r.) B. Talley, V. Francis, J.

Coach Steve Baker was left with the task of teaching basketball fundamentals, specific plays, and shooting techniques to the remaining squad of 1 5. With long hours of practice, and the addition of spirit and determination, the Junior Tigers put their best foot forward every game. (back row, left to right) S. Stafford, K. Perrin, M. Foard, K.

Hey all you Tiger fansll Whether yelling at pep rallies, chanting at games, or merely smiling around school, the Tabb High cheerleaders were instrumental in promoting a spirited atmosphere for THS. In an effort to stronger support the school, the squad attended practically all sports events in addition to serving as guides at open house, pom-pom girls in parades, and participating in other extra- curricular activities. Jubilant in victory and encouraging in defeat, the cheerleaders proved to be a vital addition to the school. 95 Gymnasts spring info action Gymnastics incorporated six skill areas; the uneven bars, the balance beam, the horse, floor exercise, tumbling, and the category of All- Around which includes all of the previous areas except tumbling. All gymnasts are judged on a scale of one through ten by performing a routine that they originate themselves (optional category) or a routine that the National High School League prepares (compulsory). 96 Opposite Page: (top) Gymnasts display ability on the balance beam and (bottom) uneven bars, (left) The girls develop skills on the horse, while Miss Johnson, gymastics coach, beams at the prospect of winning the next meet (right).

Darrell Hurst in the district meet placed fifth in long jump with a jump of 21 feet, inches — a school record. He also long jumped at the Eastern Regional Meet. The one mile relay team composed of Clifford Falk, Curtis Soles, Chuck Engle, and Darrell Hurst placed fifth with a time of 3:37.5. In the Eastern Regional Meet the one mile relay team composed of David Craig, Curtis Soles, Chuck Engle, and Darrell Hurst set a new school record with a time of 3:31 .5. Next year the team hopes to have an all weather track. With the success they had with nothing better than a parking lot to run on, who knows what they will do with a track. 100 GIRLS’ TEAM: (1 St row) D. Stewart, C. Lassiter, L. Bresee, J. Grimes, K.

Baseball team showed much improvement as the year progressed. The first half of their season yielded a 1 -5 record.
