America began building her house in the 1700’s. Since that time, the house has gone through several household heads and has been remodeled several times. A beautiful, majestic mansion or a warm comfortable home can both represent America. The actual building of the home, however large or small best displays America’s two hundred year old history. The foundation for this democratic masterpiece was laid in three sections. First, the Declaration of Independence broke the ground for the foundation. The Revolutionary War provided the cement for a solid structure. Then the physical portion of the house began with the construction of the walls just as the Constitution outlined the make up of America’s house. The construction of America’s house continued smoothly for about 80 to 90 years. The Gold Rush of ’49 along with other expansion efforts, including immigration, increased the size of this house. Problems did arise as America was preparin g to finish the basement and start the first floor during her second 100 years. The structure of the house was weakened by a severe earthquake called the " Civil War”. During this shaky experience, the house was on the verge of collapse. Fortunately, the house was not beyond repair. The holes were patched up, a lesson was learned and America’s architectural masterpice continued. Although the building of America’s house was hampered by the Spanish-American War and World War One, the structure progressed. As America worked on her first floor, we decided it was about time for a house party. Thus the wild party of the " Roaring Twenties” began. It was one of the wildest, longest and most colorful parties of all time. Cleaning up such a large house after a tremendous party was a slow, hard task. During this clean-up period, America found her house in a state of Depression. Just as the clean-up of America’s house ended, her backyard was attacked by a band of Japanese Beetles. Since these beetles caught America by surprise, she was not prepared to combat them. America held the beetles off long enough for her master gardener, Harry Truman, to release his fabulous insect repellant-the atomic bomb. After Mr. Truman deployed his weapon, the battle ceased and America’s backyard returned to normal. America continued to expand her home, with people and with two additional rooms during the years after the " Beetle Battle”. The two new rooms were Alaska and Hawaii, and they along with the remainder of the house prospered under the supervision of such able carpenters as Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson. In recent time, however, America’s home has faced difficult problems. One major problem is taking care of all her residents. Another peroblem is trying to find enough fuel to keep the house going. The most severe problem, though, was facing the terrible storm, " Watergate”. This twister shook America’s house up so badly that her master carpenter at the time, Richard Nixon, didn’t know which way to go, so he left and the storm subsided. This is America’s two story, two hundred year old home as it stands today. What does the future hold? Well, America is prepared to embark on the third floor of her beautiful dwelling. The next one hundred years promise to hold much dynamic excitement and serious problems for America. That is why America must continue to choose capable chief carpenters and adequate assistants so the construction of America’s democratic mansion will never falter.

The S.C.A. is the student’s personal voice on the school government of Tazewell High School. Probably the most important purpose of the S.C.A. is its link from the student body to the administration. The S.C.A. also deals with the students’ different activities such as the Student-Faculty Basketball Game, various dances, and informative programs throughout the year.

Today the tradition remains. " The Peak” has not changed and " The Peak” continues to serve as the foundation for memories. The annual staff would like to express their appreciation to those who make this possible. A special thanks to Mr. Smith for drawing the division pages; to John Fisher for his excellent photography; to Lanny Pigg for pictures and lay-outs; to Dr. Joyce for his cooperation and assistance; and to all the faculty members who helped in any way. 49 a,? U- OUJOO DEDICATION " No bubble is so iridescent or floats longer than that blown by the successful teacher.” Sir William Osier We the Class of 1976 proudly dedicate this edition of The Peak to Mrs. Buchanan. Throughout the ten years that she has been a teacher at Tazewell High School, Mrs. Buchanan, has shown a personal and sincere interest in the well-being of the student body, faculty and community. Mrs. Buchanan has chaperoned many dances, sponsored clubs and served as I co-ordinator of the science department in addition to her work as a biology teacher. Mrs. Buchanan, we hope that you will consider this dedication and expression of our appreciation for what you have done and of our admiration for you. I 52 T.H.S. WELCOMES NEW DR. MAYNARD R. JOYCE Dr. Joyce came to Tazewell July 1, 1975 to serve as principal of Tazewell High School. Before assuming this position, he served as administrative assistant in Franklin, Virginia. He received his B.A. from High Point College in North Carolina, his M.S. from Radford College and his doctorate in administration from V.P.I. Dr. Joyce has taught physical education and has served as assistant principal of a high school and as principal of a middle school and a high school. PRINCIPAL Tazewell High School has or will be an exciting part of your life for four years. The faculty, the school board, and the State of Virginia determined what was taught during that time; you determined what was learned. Hopefully your experiences here provided to a degree, what you sought. The learning was reciprocal. You learned from us; we learned from you. What we both learned will make next year better. Then the cycle will repeat itself. You could not have gone to a better school, only to a more expensive one. Twenty years from now you will think of our Bicentennial year and say, " Those were the good ole’ days”, and you will be entirely correct. No better people can be found than those at T.H.S. 53 Mrs. Gay Van Dyke m ■- Mr. Roy Meadows Assistant Principal 7 Mrs. Peggy Lawson Secretary 54 B(X)kkeeper FACULTY Harold Bandy B.S.-Concord, M.A.- W.

As young Americans, we are part of those who will strive in the future to keep our nation growing and improving as it has for the past 200 years.

This has been a special year as we have celebrated our nation’s 200th birthday. We have become more aware of our heritage and we have come to realize that we are a vital part of our school, community, state and nation. We hope that this year has made each of you more proud to say, " This is my country.” May this pride grow in the coming years and make each year as memorable as 1976. TV. c v ' -CL - Jcc 3?
