TC '76 encompasses the events of 1975 and 1976 at
Texarkana College. These events range from the hiring of a
new president to studying for tests. Every event that took
place is relevant to the purpose of this yearbook, however,
time and space prevent every eventtrom being recorded. The
hope and aim of the staff of TC '76 has been to give the best
possible representation of the activities and the people at
Texarkana College during the past year.
This year we celebrate our nation's Bicentennial. Texar-
kana College has existed only a fourth as long as our nation,

yet our college plays a very important part in the Bicenten-
nial, for it represents the American desire to achieve. Few
roads to achievement are surer than the road of higher
We are not a part of the original Thirteen Colonies, but we
are the result of them. We did not struggle to win inde-
pendence for America as the patriots did, but we struggle to
keep that independence. We are not the one who said, "Give
meliberty orgive me death", butwe arethe children ofliberty
holding tightly to the traditions of which we are proud.

In the Limelight
Every person at TC played the role of a special person. ln
one way or another, to somebody, each person here was
special. The roles that some played were greater than others,
the tasks that some took were more difficult than the tasks
others took, and the honors that some received were more
prestigious than others. For this reason, this section of TC
'76 is devoted to those special people whose performances
and honors rise above and beyond what is required.
It is entirelyfitting with the Bicentennial that certain people
be recognized as more than justfaces in acrowd. Thousands
of people took part in the American Revolution, yet we only
speak of Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Adams, and
others. Why do we think of these and not everyone who took
part? These people made contributions to those historical
events above and beyond what was required.
Just as certain people left distinguishing marks on the
founding of our nation, certain people at TC leave distin-
guishing marks through their performances while attending
this college. That is why these are special people.

'Life, Liberty. . . Happiness' Wifi
Our nation came into existence because people wanted to
be active in their own affairs. The words "Life, liberty, and the
pursuit of happiness" demand activity. These are the words
that spurred the colonies to action, and even today these
words inspire us to be active.
Existing is not enough. We have to do more than just be
aliveg we must live. Our years of college are more than long
hours spent pondering over books, writing research papers,
and studying for tests. The talents and skills we possess, the
pleasure and happiness we seek, and the satisfaction we get
from being involved all motivates us to be active.,We have a
desire within us to entertain and to be entertained 3 we wantto
perform, to dance, to play, to sing, to compete, and to
achieve, We want to be a part of the world.
Mrs. Sue McCrossen, Bruce Power, Dick
Wise and Diane Perkins.

'Know the Facts'
Spring comes, and once again people begin stirring. Days
grow longer and warmer, and winter fades into memory. The
grass turns from brown to green, bare tree limbs are covered
by leaves, suddenly littleflowers appear everywhere, and just
as suddenly candidates for the Student Senate appear. Every
wall on every building is papered with posters saying "Vote
for ,for Student Senate", and "Know the Facts". On
every poster, the candidates name blazes boldly in clear
large letters. As the campaign intensifies, the candidates
pass out cigars, suckers, and leaflets, telling of their plans,
and some even do some old fashioned handshaking and
speechmaking. The American system of politicing, made
famous by people like Henry Clay, Abe Lincoln, the Roose-
velts, and Lyndon Johnson, still flourishes, even at the col-
lege level elections.
In the Springi, elections for Student Senate officers and
for senators were held. A large field of candidates entered the
race, campaigned, and spoke at the "Meet the Candidates"
portion of the Flea Market. Clear cut issues aroused the
interests of the student body. Discussions, and occasional,
arguments took place over the issues and the candidates. ln
two days of voting, over four hundred students, a record
number, cast ballots. The officers elected were Christy El-
kins, presidentg David Arnold, vice-presidentg Andrea Lam-
bert, treasurerg and senators elected were Lana Adams,
Rusty Allen, and Becky Goff.

play were performed by Skip Ross, Kim
Henderson, Denise Brouillette, and David
Akins. Robert Kilpatrick served as emcee for
Stephen Schwartz's popular musical
"GodspeII", based upon the Gospel ac-
cording to St. Matthew, appeared at the
auditorium during the spring. Starting
with Christ's baptism and ending with the
crucifixion and resurrection, the life,
teachings, and parables of Christ were
presented in sometimes humorous, com-
etimes sad vigenettes.
The ten characters in the play carica-
tured real individuals from the Bible.
Symbolism and satire added depth to
"GodspeIl", while colorful and bizarre
costumes, songs such as the popular
"Day by Day", and audience participation
kept the show lively.
"GodspeIl", sponsored by the Student
Activities Committee, was performed by a
professional road company.

Indian jewelry made out of turquoise, old records with hit
songs of the past, books, pictures, whatnots, arts and crafts,
and all sorts of treasures were displayed to sell at the spring
flea market. Campus clubs, as well as individuals, use the flea
market to make money. Candidates for the Student Senate
take advantage of the crowds to do a little politicing. A break
from the class routine, a chance to maybe find a bargain, the
opportunity to be with friends-that's the flea market.

The excitement and adventure of rid-
ing a bucking bull, the skill and preci-
sion of roping a calf, the funny antics of
the clowns have all contributed to mak-
ing rodeos popular in this area. ln New
Boston, the TC Rodeo Club held its
13th Annual Rodeo during the spring
semester. Events in the rodeo included
bare back riding, calf roping, barrel
racing, a calf scramble, goat sacking,
and team roping, which was a new fea-
ture at this year's rodeo. A dance was
held both nights following the rodeo.
Right: Jeff Hefner, Bill Churchman,

more than just being funny, for the
clown has to distract the bucking bulls

The wonderful world of water became the stage for the performance of
the "T Sea Express". A railway atmosphere added to the water show's
theme that consisted of acts dealing with American cities. Synchronized
swimming and water ballet involving the performance of intricate
strokes comprised much of the show.
Beginning with "The Express", a number performed by 18 swimmers,
the "T Sea Express" cruised into New Orleans to one of the famous New
Orleans clubs that featured entertainment by the "can-can" girls. Boy
and girl duets were performed by Joe Johnson, Jerri Mason, Jeff Teeters,
and Connie Works to such numbers as "The Streets of Laredo", and "By
the Time I Get to Phoenix", and "Do You Know the Wayto San Jose" was
performed with a six man dolphin routine. "My Way", an old Dianne
Warwick number, was performed by Barbara Brewer in a solo act.
Thirty swimmers formed the letters USA while waving flags with the
song "This is My Country" in the background at the conclusion of the
show. The "T Sea Express" was directed and coordinated by Mrs. Sue

Traditional Values Still Stressed
Following in a tradition first established by the Minutemen in the American Revolution, the TC unit of ROTC drilled, trained,
and learned to operate military equipment. The ROTC program, under the direction of Captain Gregory L. Walsh, offers classes
in the fields of organization and history of the U.S. Army, drill, introduction to rifle markmanship, and leadership development.
Members of ROTC at TC were involved in training exercises at Red River Army Depot and took part in full-time scale maneuvers
which involved combat patrols, proper radio procedure, and reconnaissance missions. Upon completion of the ROTC program
at University level, the student is commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Army reserve.

we can work, talk, create, laugh, build, plan, and serve.
People at Texarkana College organize because they have

help others, political clubs exist for those of similar political
ideologies, some clubs exist for those who plan to enter into

and the cultivation of fellowship among students are the
aims of Phi Theta Kappa, the National Junior College
Honorary Scholarship Society. Elgibility for Phi Theta
Kappa is determined by the students' good moral
character, and qualities of leadership as iudged by a
faculty committee and by the students' gradepoint.
TC's chapter of Phi Theta Kappa sponsored a panel
discussion on the controversial Equal Rights Amend-
ment, an American Handicrafts presentation, and a de-
monstration on Bio-Rythyms. Thej 2th Annual Phi Theta
Kappa State Convention held in Corpus Christi was at-

Compressing oneyear at TC into two hundred and
eight pages is the task the yearbook staff faces.
Pictures must be taken, developed, cropped, and
arranged on the pages. Copy, outlines, and head-
lines must be written for each page. As the yearbook
staff faces the mounting pressures of deadlines,
long hours have to be spent at the typewriter, in the
darkroom, and in the yearbook office. Creativity and
diligence go together to make up the staff. The final
result of the labors of the yearbook staff is TC '76.
The staff of TC '76 includes Ben House, editor,
Carol Ann Frost, associate editor, David Akin, Bill
Blue, Robert Dodd, Billy Burton, Pat Rogers, and
Bob Walters, photographers, and Mrs. Joy Arnold,

During the Bicentennial year, the leaders of the American
Revolution receive much attention. They provided the
guidance, motivation, ideas, talents, administration and hard
work necessary to successfully lead the colonies in their
struggle for independence.
The Administrators and faculty members play asimilar role
in their positions at TC. They provide the guidance, moti-
vation, ideas, talents, administration, and hard work
necessary for successfully leading Texarkana College. Years
of study and preparation, devotion to their work, and skill in
performance are the ingredients making up the adminis-
trators and faculty at TC.
Though they may never see it, the administrators and the
faculty constantly make imprints upon their students. A man
once wrote to a former teacher what could be said of many
teachers: "l don't know what life or lives may lie before me.
Butl know that to the end of them, lshall bearyour mark upon

When our nation first revolted against England, itwas like a
freshman. The newly formed confederation of colonies faced
the awesome tasks of fighting a war and building a new
nation simultaneously. lmmense as they were, these tasks
were also challenging. Our nation, like a freshman, faced the
tasks head on.
Anyone enrolled at TC with less than 30 semester hours
earned is classified as afreshman. Being afreshman requires
the ability to take on the challenges of college work and the
strength and disclplineto takethe required courses ofstudy.
For the freshman, the goal of college may be from two to
ten years away, depending upon his or her major. Freshmen
come from all walks of life. Most are high school graduates
seeking a college education before embarking upon a
career. However, many are men and women who have raised
families, worked in all types of occupations, served in the
armed forces, maybe even retired, but ready to go to college
to enrich their lives, or reach a goal.

handle the pace of college life. As sophomores, they no
longer feel the newness of college and yet, the college scene
still holds variety and excitement. Theyface thequestion now
of "Where do I go from here?"

two hundred years-emerging from an isolated group of
colonies united together-to the world's most powerful
Where do we go from here? From here, the sophomore
goes toward graduation, further college education, and a
career. From here, aour nation mustfollow the pathways that
have proven successful and abandon those pathways that
have lead us astray.

Music, Music, Music
All year 'round a colorful array of sound effects are emitted from the little white
building on campus known as a hideaway for music students. The music
curriculum at Texarkana College spans a wide range of music literature and
training. Courses are offered for beginners and students possessing advanced
musical ability. Music dealing with every phase from classical to jazz, rock and
electronic synthesizer sounds has a place in this department.
Students may enroll for music appreciation
courses, technical lessons on various in-
struments, individual voice lessons or even
non-credit music classes. Music students
are required to perform for jury each
semester. This involves presenting
selections to an audience of fellow students
and faculty members. All applied music
students mustsign up for one hour per week
of lab, studio or concert recitals. Members
of the choral and instrumental groups are
responsiblefor making public appearances.
The groups tour many of the surrounding
areas and provide entertainment for local
organizations, are available for seasonal
performances, and contribute their talents
to various church and community activities.
Many of the active music students are also
talented in the dramafield and participate in
joint music-drama productions. A music-
theatre class is offered to assist in the study
of the integration of music, acting, and
staging. This course serves as opera
workship for music majors and minors. Yes,
the sound may be "high brow" or may be
something from "outer space", but it's all
important at TC and it's all MUSIC,

'We the People . . .'
We have attended TC at an important time in our nation's
history. We are not isolated from the events that shaped and
guided our nation to its Bicentennial year, and we are not
isolated from the events thatwill continue to shape and guide
We face a tremendous task. We who are the result of our
nation's past and the hope for its future must see to it that the
right course is taken in order to reach a three-hundredth
When we consider that our nation began in 1776 as an
isolated group of colonies fighting againstthe most powerful
nation in the world and when we consider that when our
nation celebrated the Centennial, the country was suffering
from economic problems, crime, political scandal, and
immorality, our task no longer seems impossible.

We have seen many changes and events take place during
the past year at TC. Dr. Nelson became president of TC and
under his direction the academic and vocational programs
were merged. Enrollment increased during both fall and
spring semesters. We even had two bomb threats.
lntermingled between all these events, we came to TC, we
went to classes, we studied, we learned, we laughed, we
entertained, we served, we struggled, sometimes we
achieved, sometimes we failed, in some ways we changed,
and in some ways we remained the same.
TC '76 is more than just ayearbook. It is a time, a place, and
a people that cannot be captured in just words and pictures.
We are TC '76
