Good morning yesterday.
You wake up, and time has slipped away,
And suddenly it’s hard to find The memories you left behind. Remember, do you remember?

An Eventful Week
This year's Homecoming, sponsored by the class of "81,” will be remembered for many years to come, especially in the hearts of King Myron Wolcott and Queen Bobbette Lamb. They were chosen by the student body, and the final selection was announced at a special assembly held on September 21.
During the fun-filled week, the traditional events took place. The cheerleaders sponsored a snake dance through town ending at the school where they held the annual bonfire and a Mellow Yellow chug contest between the members of the court. The contest was won by the freshman attendants.
The long-awaited Homecoming day was September 28. The pep rally was held in the gym, afterwards the parade traveled through Main Street, ending at the school. The senior girls took on the junior girls in the powder puff football game with the seniors coming out on top, 7-0.
At the game, a half time show presented class floats, the king and queen, and their court. The senior class took first place in the float competition. After five grueling overtimes, the tired Indians were rewarded with a Homecoming victory over the Spartans, 21-18!
After the game, the king and queen were formally crowned by last year's royalty, Mark Eberts and Annette Brewer, at the dance, “Three Times a Lady.”

The Student Council sponsored the annual Spirit Day on January 25. Class competition was held to boost school spirit for the basketball season.
Some of the activities included a window decorating contest, spider crawl, basketball bounce, “name that tune,” pyramid building, and run and jump rope. The competition ended in a tie, with the seniors and the freshmen sharing the overall win.

THS Presents ‘Showboat’
The Student Council, once again, put together the annual Cabaret held April 26. The 1980 Cabaret theme was "Showboat."
Mistress and master of ceremonies, Ann Casebeer and Jack Woods, led the program of various talents consisting of singing, dancing, skits and music. There were also refreshments sold at intermissions.
The Student Council, led by advisors Mrs. Vilma Carlson and Mr. Wayne Mason, put a lot of effort into "Showboat” and as a result had a fine show.

Play a Success
Under the direction of Mrs. Carlene Zollner, the play, Arsenic and Old Lace, went very well. The cast members worked for two months getting prepared for their debut. The play evolves around the Brewster family, who is involved in murder. The play was presented March 28 and 29, with excellent community attendance. Linda Fishen was presented the Drama Award this year.

A Year for Victories
This year, the varsity football team put together a winning record of 5 wins and 4 losses — the first since "66."
This year's team had three shutouts which showed the fine defensive performances by each player on the team. The offense and defense combined effectively to win the last three games of the season.
The team also had the experience in playing in two overtime games. One of the games the Indians lost to Pittsford in two overtimes by a score of 29 to 28. The other game was played on Homecoming night against Waldron. The Indians pulled out a victory on a deciding field goal 21 to 18 ending the five-overtime struggle.
The Indians tied for third place in the conference along with North Adams and Pittsford.
Five Indian seniors received post season foot-
ball honors. Tim Caputo was selected as a linebacker on the following teams: All-Conference, All-Area, and All-State Honorable Mention. Tim Jenkins was named to the following teams: All-Conference, All-Area, and All-State Honorable Mention for his play at offensive end. He also received All-Area Honorable Mention for his play at halfback. Bruce White was picked to the following teams: All-Conference, All-Area, and All-State Honorable Mention for his performance at offensive guard. He also was chosen defensive tackle on the All-Conference Team. Doug Saltz-gaber made the All-Area Honorable Mention Team as quarterback along with John O’Dell for his act at offensive end.
This year was very satisfying for both players and coaches.

Team Gains Valuable Experience

The team played a hard and exciting season with only one game being determined by more than one touchdown.

33A Season of Accomplishments
The 1979-80 high school wrestling team faced another year of many defeats as a team, but individually there were many wins.
With mostly first and second year wrestlers, the team showed steady improvement as the season progressed.
Injuries and not being able to fill all the weight divisions were the team's weaknesses.
Only being Tekonsha's fourth year for a wrestling team, there were many records set.
As a team they tied for fifth at an invitational tournament, bringing home two first places, and a fourth place.
Floyd Siegel was the only wrestler to qualify for the state tournament. There, he tied for fifth place out of eight competitors.
Floyd also set the school record for the most wins in one season. He finished with 19 wins and 12 losses.

A First for THS
For the first time since joining the SCAA in 1964, the varsity basketball team won the league championship. The Indians won the title in the last game of the season by defeating defending SCAA champion, Litchfield.
Before playing Litchfield, the Indians had beaten every league team twice except Litchfield, who they had lost to in their first meeting. But before a packed house at Tekonsha, the Indians came through with a victory to win the championship, outright.
Three players received post season honors this year. Doug Saltzgaber was named to the All-League first team, selected for the All-Area Battle Creek Enquirer and News team, and also received Honorable Mention All-State from both Detroit Free Press and the UPI. Saltzgaber led the Indians in points with 355 for a 16.9 per game
average, steals with 62 and assists with 72. The 62 steals also broke a school record.
Tim Jenkins was named to the All-League first team and received Honorable Mention All-Area from the Battle Creek Enquirer and News. Jenkins had 107 defensive rebounds to lead the team and was second in scoring with 243 points for a 11.6 per game average.
Kevin Webber was named to the All-League second team. Webber had 235 points for an 11.2 per game average, and had 56 assists and 46 steals to rank second on the team in both categories.
All in all, it was a good year for all the players. The team, under the direction of coach Larry Stout, finished with a fine 15-6 record which is the best record in many years.

The team’s league record was five wins and five losses. This record was good enough to finish third place in league play. The team's coach, Mr. Tony Bowling, said, “The latter part of the season showed some potential.’’

Ted Groholske was the only member who qualified to go to the Tri-League Champions Meet by finishing second in the league meet in the 800 meter run with a time of 2:05.2. He placed fifth in the Tri-League Champions Meet held at Quincy, running against some tough competition from area schools.

Keeping the Beat for THS
The 1979-80 school year proved to be another active year for the THS Music Department.
The high school marching band became a familiar attraction as they presented their half time shows during the home football games.
Their annual Spring and Christmas Concerts proved to be successful as they performed in front of large numbers of the community. They were also involved in the Homecoming and Marshall Christmas Parades. The high school band performed at Cedar Point on May 21, and afterwards enjoyed a fun-filled day of activities.
For money making projects, both the bands and choirs sold candles and the majorettes sold placemats.
This past year, the junior high choir presented a special performance of the musical, Bambi, for the younger children in the community.
All these activities came under the direction of Mr. Kevin McMullin.
"What goes up, must come down,"' is what the senior members of the high school band found out. This year’s seniors include: (Clockwise From Top) Ooug Saltzgaber. Melanie Doolittle, Jim Kelly, Doug Myers, Doug Kempton. Bill Wiescholek, Nancy Jones, and Marlene Friend.

Studies Exercise Students’ Minds
This year, over 260 students filled their minds with facts, figures, equations and many more mind benders. Classes like algebra II, advanced typing and office machines, physics, advanced biology, composition and literature gave students the opportunity to use their minds in applying principles to their studies.
Fine arts, drafting, business, home ec, physical education, Spanish, and history were some of the many specialized choices that students could take.
When the 1979-1980 school year finally came to an end the students were surprised in how much they really learned, and hoped it would pay off when they entered the outside world.

Students Prepare for Careers
After third hour, juniors and seniors leave THS to attend the Calhoun Area Vocational Center in Battle Creek, or to a place of employment through the Work Experience Program.
Tekonsha High School is one of the 13 secondary school districts in the Battle Creek area that has the option of exploring and taking part in a career vocation program to give them a head start for obtaining employment after high school.
The Work Experience Program had a new coordinator, Mrs. Susan Barnett. She taught students how to find jobs and what employers expect on the job. Through the students’ jobs, they had the opportunity to gain much experience for the world of work.

The rising costs of producing a yearbook prompted this year's journalism staff to turn into "part-time" salesmen to help subsidize subscription and advertising revenues.
The staff sold ceramic "Luvkins," "Bells," and Christmas wrapping paper for over nine weeks, and came up with approximately $700.
Some of the money was used to improve and add pages back to the 1980 INDIAN The rest of the money will be put toward future yearbooks at THS.
The staff was headed by seven seniors, six juniors, and one sophomore all under the direction of Mrs. Sally Hammond. Of the 14 staff members, 7 were returnees for either their second or third years.
Along with the 1980 INDIAN, the staff put together the weekly page of The Tekonsha IDEA newspaper.
A yearbook workshop at WMU, and a trip to the ENQUIRER AND NEWS were other activities.
The staff worked hard, and had a lot of fun, but they also had a lot of responsibility to handle.

We, the graduating class of 1980, dedicate this space in our yearbook to the memory of two special friends. Tammy Fowler and Dick Spires.
Tammy and Dick were special friends of ours. We shared many times together as we grew up. We will never forget those times and they will be in our hearts and memories forever.
Our memory of them lives on in the awards that are presented to sixth grade students each year: The Tammy Fowler Physical Fitness Award, and The Dick Spires Citizenship Award.
To Tammy and Dick we dedicate this space.

May 24, the junior class put on the prom at the Coldwater Country Club.
On May 29, at 6 a.m., the senior class boarded a Greyhound bus and set off to Marriott’s “Great America" in Gurnee, Illinois. They had loads of fun and returned home at 3:30 a.m. on May 30, tired but happy.

Another Year Behind Them
The 1979-80 junior class survived their next to last year of high school quite well. They enjoyed many good times and captured the memories that came with them.
Among their memorable events were Homecoming, magazine sales, and Prom.
For Homecoming, they chose animals for the float theme and “Three Times a Lady" for the dance.
Magazine sales helped pay for their Prom, as they made $1,100.
It was a year for future planning, as some juniors began to select colleges, while others took advantage of the Vo-ed and Co-op programs offered.
Junior class attendants, Jill Blake and Bob Wiescholek, take part in the warm, sunny, Homecoming parade.

One of their first events to participate in was Homecoming week, when the class gave a worthwhile effort with the making of their float entitled, “Eat 'em up!”
They chose as their attendant and escort, Brenda White and Scott Reincke.
The freshmen held a free throw basketball shoot as their Fall Festival activity.
Their annual selling project was popcorn, which sold well.

Solid Footing for the Future

The yearbook stdff had a lot of fun putting together tha 1910 INDIAN yearbook. We would like to use this space for the many thank you's that people so richly desorve.
To start off. we would like to give a very big thank you to our yearbook advisor, Mrs. Se ly Hammond. She put in many long hours during the school year and after school was out to make this yearbook an eiciting one. Abo. our staff deserves many thanks and praise for without them, this book would not be possible. They were a greet group to work with.
Countless pictures passed through the hands of every staff member due to the escelent work of our school photographer. Mr. George Murphy; we thank him. Also our appreciation goes to Mr. Lee Zimmerman of Taylor Publishing Company, for his guidance, and for dropping in to see if we needed any help.
We thank Mrs. Mary Leatherbury for making announcements on picture days, as well as the faculty and administration for cooperating on those days. We know that sometimes it got pretty hectic.
Also, thanks must go to Roger Nichols Music, Inc. for the permission to use the lyrics from the song:
•THE TIMES OF YOUR LIFE"
Lyrics — Bill Lane Music — Roger Nichols Copyright — 1974 Roger Nichols Music, Inc.
Last but certainly not least we want to estend a special thanks to the Advertisers, Patrons, and Subscribers, and also to those people who bought the Christmas "Luvkms. wrapping paper. Their support has made this yearbook possible, and has helped to keep the price of the yearbook down for several years.
Sometimes thank you's seem small, but without the help of al these people, the 1910 INDIAN wotdd not be. Thank you!
