This school was built on pride and the Thunder-
bird students surely carry it through. Eager students
participated in the activities offered. The overall
attitudes of the teens on this campus has really been
positive. "The pride in our school unifies us into one
group, the Thunderbird Chiefs." commented ju-
nior, Amy Gower.
School spirit was kept alive by all the "rowdy"
people. They got everyone involved in chants at
games and assemblies. Spirit days brought out "true
colors" and were a large factor in promoting spirit.
With our spirit, school would not be the same.
While pride unifies, spirit unites by getting people
involved. "People can see and feel spirit of students
around them" explained junior, Marielina Esper-
Not only did Thunderbird execute spirit and
pride on campus, but also in the surrounding com-
munity. Teens on campus were involved in several
community service projects such as Key Club, led by
Larry Prochnau. Key Club sponsored a stair climb
for Cystic Fibrosis. Other service vents that took
place were the traditional blood drive and the
canned food drive. These both were held to assist
the community. Another big part of Thunderbird is
the S.A.D.D. programg Students Against Driving
Drunk. Senior, Brian Booker was the President of
S.A.D.D. and worked to promote this with students
and parents. Thunderbird has played a major role in
Out of the Blue . , . Thunderbird students bring
forth pride and spirit for the school. Striving for
excellence has always been a trait of Thunderbird
and this year has certainly been no exception. From
school to community service, Thunderbird shows its

Changes in the campus buildings and administra-
tion helped the studentsfeel Thunclerbirdacquired
an entirely new image. Some of these changes in-
clude the remodeling of the cafeteria, the adding of
the lobby to the gym, the remodeling of the class-
rooms, the concession stand added to the stadium,
and the painting of the buildings. Along with the
building changes there were changes in the adminis-
tration such as the addition of Dick Eberly, the
operations and resource Assistant Principal, and
Mark Farison the Dean of Students.
The cafeteria was remodeled to take on a restau-
rant look. The funding for these alterations was
made possible by the bond election that was passed
in May of 1986. This was the first time that major
work has been done on the school cafeteria. "I think
improving the campus will encourage more people to
come to school and to stay on campus for lunch."

includes a trophy case and a ticket booth.
Over the summer the computer rooms were made
bigger to allow space for more computers. Because of
the added room, and computers it was possible for
all of the computer students to work at the same
time. They also added a concession stand and res-
trooms for the stadium.
In addition to all of these changes the buildings
were also repainted. "I think the changes helped the
students to respect the campus more," said junior

changes over the past year, and possibly more to
