Within a span of a few months last summer, the Tilden High School faculty was devastated by the untimely passing of three of
our friends: Mr. Bernard Campolo of the Communication Arts Dept., Mrs. Gloria Cushner, Secretary, and Mr. Bernard Mars of the
Health 8r Physical Education Dept.
Classic 1986 is hereby dedicated to their memory.
Mr. Campolo was a sensitive, organized man who loved beautiful
things and wanted to know why people were not more gentle and
kinder to each other. He enjoyed the arts, the building of houses, and
the giving of education to his students. We miss him!
Mrs. Cushner had been with the Tilden staff for the past ten years.
She served as a School Aide, Secretary Intern, and finally Secretary to
the Assistant Principal - Guidance. She always was extremely helpful
and eager to please. She was a dear friend to her co-workers and
respected very highly. Her beautiful smile, her genuine concern for
others, and her thoughtfulness, will always be remembered. She will be
Bernard Mars was a beloved teacher, coach, and colleague, a gentle-
man and gentle man who brightened our world and touched our hearts.

As the sands of time slip by and we
begin to taste the bittersweet world we
live in, we begin to create our own india
vidual touch of class. We the Tilden High
School Class of 1986 have reached that
time in our lives where we must put our
own individualism into action so that we
can achieve our goals.
The name of our yearbook has always
been The Classic. But what does this
Classic is that which survives the pas-
sage of time. When CocasCola decided to
do away with the new and bring back the
old, they applied HClassic'l to their old
The root of the word 'tclassicv is class.
Our Touch of Class has been kindled, and
will flourish, We have been affected by
fads, the times, and the environment. The
grand result is you.
There are 'iclassicsf' all around us. For
many years, our prime preoccupation has
been obtaining our education. We have
had little time to see the world and cap-
ture its significance. For example, we live
in the i'Classic Cityf, but only recently
have we been able to truly experience its
awesome beauty and cultural treasures.
The Class of 1986 has been captured
in the pages of this book to elicit memo-
ries of our second home, Tilden. Tilden
HS. is a city of its own, with a melting pot
creating an aroma of uniqueness. The
doors are like a turnstile, constantly re-
volving to give us our individual style.
We've seen a number of Classic Lifes-
tyles here at Tilden. We've seen all the
fads and fashions from the high afros to
bell-bottom pants, to plaids, to platform
shoes. It seemed that they would never
go out of style.
Yet it's funny how many times we
change ourselves before choosing the one
lifestyle we like the best. We've become a
part of cliques, clubs, and gangs just be-
cause it's the "in" thing to do.
Tilden also consists of people from dif-
ferent backgrounds and cultures. ln a
sense, we've created a sense of cultural
pluralism. lt may be small, but it is our
own Classic Culture.
Sometime in the future when you feel
that your Mmagicm is fading and you need
a lift, thumb through the Classic, and re-
turn to the magical Hgood old days" at
Tilden. Remember the dreams we
sharedg see how they've bloomed. Then
experience a resurgence of determination
to achieve. Once again you have tasted
Tildenls 'Classic-al Touch!"
HClassic'l to us means something so
memorable that we can never forgetg that
which will always be a part of our hearts
We are a family. ln our own ways we
love each other. We have fought, but we
never stopped caring. We have stayed
Our love and togetherness has been
captured for posterity in the pages of this
book for you to enjoy and remember in
the years to come.
Tilden: you are our second home and
second love. We love you, and will always
remember the times at Tilden High!

"all your dreams
can come true"
Lights, Camera, Action!
This is our city - a city filled with anima-
tion, life, excitement, and everything else
that makes New York City unique. All your
dreams can come true in this city. The lights
never stop glowing, the people never stop
going, and time never stands still for anyone.
This great city that we live in has everyth-
ing that one can imagine. We have all the
special things that non-New Yorkers can
only dream of. There are days that you can
attend a concert in Central Park, or visit a
Broadway Theatre. You can even go to Har-
lem to visit the revitalized Apollo Theatre
where many have come and gone seeking
fame and fortune before the floodlights.
lf you want to take a short ride on the
"Iron Wagon," you can enjoy the Cloisters,
Broadway, the Vilage, SoHo, Chinatown, or
any of our famous skyscrapers. For a little
romance, there's a visit to the Promenade in
Brooklyn Heights to view the beautiful sky-
line that is New York.
Indeed treasure this Classic City.

Cl ssic Life t es
One of the beauties of our Classic City is that we have a melting pot - not only of diverse cultures and nationalities - but of
lifestyles as well.
Take a stroll down the streets of New York. You will encounter the Punk Rockers, New Wavers, F1yGuys, FlyGals, even
NERDSI In a few years, you will look back at these pages and remember these truly Classic Lifestyles.

The School of Law, Politics, and Com-
munity Affairs l"I..P.C." for shortl is
completing its fourteenth year at Tilden
High School. It is one of the oldest and
most comprehensive law-related educa-
tion programs in New York City. "Com-
prehensive" means that it offers a variety
of educational activities, not merely
classes, although the special classes re-
main the heart of the program.
This is a social studies enrichment pro-
gram, but with a special emphasis on law,
our court system, and our government.
However L.P.C.'ers also take more re-
quired American History classes than
non-L.P.C. students. In addition, there
are a variety of electives, including Black
History, Psychology, Constitutional Law,
Local History, Holocaust Studies, the
American Presidency, and others.
Besides innovative classes, the pro-
gram provides trips, guest speakers, and
special events - both inside and outside
the school. A number of such programs
last year included the Mock Trial adminis-
tered by Mr, Kay, the Mentor Program
guided by Mr. Pasternak, and a guest
appearance by a journalist who lived for
years in terror in South Africa.
Another unique community-oriented
experience is the Community Field Work
class. Students in this program are as-
signed "mini-internships" in courtrooms,
law offices, government agencies, day
care centers, tenant organizations, and
Class trips included tours and trial ob-
servations at the Supreme Court for
criminology classes, a visit to historical
Philadelphia, and the annual outing and
boat excursion to Bear Mountain.
L.P.C. students continue to be among
the most active in the Student Union,
clubs and athletic teams, and school pub-
lications including L.P.C.'s own Corpus
Delicti, the official newspaper of L.P.C.
events, student opinions, and creative
The School of Law, Politics, and Com-
munity Affairs was coordinated by Mr.
Murray Meiselman in the fall term, and by
Mr. Harry Klaff in the spring term.
Tilden's "Enrichment" program is de-
signed to provide our most industrious
students opportunities to realize their po-
tential by challenging their imaginations
and intellects in a broad-based, college-
oriented academic course-of-study.
Students in the program are "block"
programmed for English, social studies,
and science, with additional courses for
those who wish to select an elective. The
"Enrichment" program is supported by
an on-going group guidance series and
monthly min-meetings of staff to review
student and program progress. It is com-
plemented by special interest, and inter-
Many of our "E" graduates have gone
on to prestigious colleges such as Colum
bia, Barnard, Harvard, and Cornell.
There have also been many individual
achievements such as awards in essay
contests and scholarships. Several "E"
students have won U.F.T. and Regents
The program is headed by Mr. Joel
Dick, AP Supervision Communication
Arts, and Mr. Grobstein, guidance coun-
selor. The Enrichment group has visited
the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Brook-
haven National Laboratories, and most
recently, Princeton University. Trips are
an important part of this program.
This year we remember our teachers:
Mr. Levesen, Mr. Leventhal, and Mr.
Dick, among others. We recall getting our
t-shirts, and being proud to wear the let-
We have many fond memories of our
life in Tilden. We look forward to the
future, knowing that our background has
prepared us for a successful life. Best
wishes to all future Enrichment students
and to Tilden High School.
The Cooperative Education Program
lCOOPl is unique because it allows high
school students to supplement their aca-
demic studies with work experience and
still graduate on time. This allows stu-
dents to explore the world beyond school
and truly find out what the "real world"
Students in COOP speak highly of the
program. We have over one hundred stu-
dents who are employed by prestigious
corporations, such as Kidder Peabody 81
Co., Irving Trust, Paramount, and Salo-
mon Brothers. Through our jobs, we have
received various opportunities that are
beneficial to our future. Some students
have permanent places to work after
graduation because their employers have
agreed to keep them on. Other students
will work and go to college part-time,
with the companies that they may work
for paying for their college education.
The students who plan to go away to
college sometimes have an agreement
with their employers for summer employ-
COOP students also learn various busi-
ness skills on their jobs. This may include
word processing or working with comput-
ers. One student is learning about the
stock market as well.
When students enter COOP, they gen-
erally improve in their academic studies.
New experiences allow us to become
more aware of the value of an education.
We are very fortunate to have the best
teachers in this program. We also have a
wonderful coordinator, Mrs. Rosen. She
has helped all of us along the way and she
always makes herself available for the
students. We also develop a personal re-
lationship with Mrs. Rosen because of the
limited number of students allowed in this

We are proud to be a part of this pro-

always remember our experiences and
the way in which they have tremendously
added to our lives. We hope that future
students will continue to benefit from it
as we have.
The Communication Arts Tilden Style

Fall of 1980. The first class to graduate
did so in 1983. At that time, the first
CATS Award for Excellence in the pro-

The Health Institute Program lH.l.P.l is
one of the newest additions to the wide
range of programs we have here at Til-
den. It was founded in 1981 by Mr. Reine
to benefit students interested in health
careers. Since its start, the H.I.P. pro-
gram has slowly developed and expand-
ed into a learning experience with a great
deal to offer its students.
H.l.P. students have a well-rounded
science background, and usually take
more than one science class per term.
The curriculum includes Medical Lab
Techniques, Medical Ethics, Microbiolo-
gy, and Physiology. Each of these classes
helps the students to learn about the
many different health fields.
The first term of Medical Lab Tech-
niques, basic laboratory procedures are
taught. These include finger punctures,
the identification of blood types, the
proper use of the microscope, and the
identification of all its parts. In the second
half, the student advances to the follow-
ing: blood counts, taking blood pressure,
and taking pulse rate. These are a few
examples of what this particular course
has to offer.
Microbiology is a very interestling class
that deals with the study of bacteria and
other microbes. The syllabus includes
naming and identifying different types of
bacteria. preparing slides, and learning
about the origin of microbiology.
A large part of the course is spent in
the lab. All the slides observed in class
are prepared by the students themselves.
One of the early lab sessions may involve
something simple, such as preparing' a
culture in a petri dish. From there, the
student progresses to more complex pro-
cedures, such as the Gram-Staining tech-
The H.l.P. Medical Ethics class in-
volves studies about patientfdoctor rela-
tionships in a humanistic way. Each stu-
dent is required to give his or her own
Another course of study in the pro-
gram is Physiology. All of the body's sys-
tems from the skeletal to the digestive are
studied. The dissection of animals is also
a part of the course.
A wide range of future interests in the
health field may be found among the
"H.l.P.pies," as they are sometimes
called. The average H.I.P. student wants
to study either pre-med or pre-nursing in
college. Some of them pioneered what
will hopefully be a successful relationship
between Tilden and the Downstate Medi-
cal Center in the way of summer volun-
The Health Institute Program has
come a long way since its birth, and has a
bright future ahead of it. The "chosen

Arista is Tilden's chapter of the Nation-
al Honor Society. The name, Arista,
comes from the Greek root meaning "the
most qualified," and that is a good de-
scription of its membership.
In order to be eligible for admission as
a senior, the student must have attained
an overall high school average of 85. ln
addition, he or she must have accrued 20
service credits during the high school ca-
reer. Juniors must post an overall aver-
age of 87, plus 10 service credits.
Arista functions as an academicfser-
vice organization. Members are expected
to continue working toward making Til-
den a better place to be. Among its many
activities, Aristonians serve as ushers re-
presenting the school on open-school
night, and perform individual service in
the library. In addition, junior members
serve as student guides and ushers during
our Tilden graduation ceremony.
Arista's spring installation, boosted by
the presence of parents and faculty, is a
high point of the school year, Traditional-
ly, those who can list Arista as among
their extra-curricular activities, have a re-

Since the days of the Stone Age
man has always found reason to argue
with his fellow man. The issues may be
unimportant but man has always en-
joyed the lively art of argumentation,
Today we call the ability to argue in
a logical factual and intelligent man-
ner a debate, And at venerable Tilden
H.S. several argumentative stu-
dents are preparing for the 1986 Lin-
coln-Douglas Debate Tournament.
Under the supervision of Mr. Bloom
of the Communication Arts Depart-
ment and Mr. Leventhal of the Social
Studies Department the Tilden De-
bate Team gets the best of both
worlds: the knowledge of the issues
from Mr. Leventhal and the necessary
speech skills from Mr. Bloom.
This year s debaters are shaping up
to be an extremely talented group.
The team is comprised of Daniel
Rossy Dean Dwight Deborah Cowell
and Helen Chin. Helping out with the
difficult task of research is Stephanie
Students are required to be ready to
argue both sides of a resolution as the
team will not know which side they are
on until the day of the debate. One
team member is responsible for deli-
vering our case for either the affirma-
tive or the negative. That initial speech
sets the tone for the entire debate.
Each debate is judged by a panel of
educators and officers from Chemical

The Tilden Computer Club is dedi-
cated to making the school a leading
institution forcomputer literacy. The
Club offers the Tilden student an op-
portunity to learn computer oper-
ations and programming skills which
are then shared with other students.
Students can learn to use the var-
ious micro-computers such as the IBM
Model 4 and the Commodore 128.
The Commodore 128 which is 64
compatible, was recently purchased
with Computer Club funds.
The Computer Club is under the
supervision of Mr. Falasca and Mr.
Kaufman. Both teachers urge students
to learn as much as they can since this
knowledge will benefit them in college.
The Club offers a computer tutoring
service for those who have no comput-

The Computer Club is also involved
in helping the alumni association main-
tain its computerized files. Mailing la-
bels and lists are generated for more
than 2 800 association members. The
association under the direction of Ms.
Jeanie Kaplan has donated more than
S1000 to the Computer Club s funds.

ln order to provide additional help
for students who need it, the Board of
Education has instituted a peer-tutoring
program. There are chapters of the pro-
gram at high schools throughout the
city, including the highly successful one
at Tilden High School.
Although the program is formally
aimed at students preparing to write the
Regents Competency Test, we extend
help to anyone who needs it. Students
occasionally ask for help with the more
advanced subjects such as chemistry,
trigonometry, and even calculus. We
also coach students preparing for the
While some students are recruited by
sending letters to their homes, others
come on their own accord. Notices are
placed throughout the school, and the
tutors make announcements in subject
classes. There always seems to be a
fairly large turnout, which increases as
exams draw closer.
Usually each tutor is responsible for
two or three students, as opposed to a
- V .3
teacher handling an entire class. This
allows for more individual attention, and
enables each student to concentrate on
whatever area is giving him trouble. The
atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, and
since most of the students are regulars,
everyone gets acquainted with every-
one else rather quickly.
All in all, students seem to welcome
the extra help, and the tutors enjoy pro-
As we move on throughout our high
school lives, one of our greatest achieve-
ments is to add our knowledge of the
world around us through experiences as
well as through reading. The Tilden Dra-
ma Guild was started on the principle that
much can be accomplished by making use
of the dramatic arts. -
The presentation of a major produc-
tion each spring is the central activity of
the Drama Guild. Last year it presented
the musical, You're a Good Man, Charlie
Brown. This year there are plans to pre-
sent Neil Simon's play, The Odd Couple,
in its original version. Besides the spring
production, the Guild also presents a
shorter work during December, usually
an adoptation of a major play.
Although acting talent is not a require-
ment for membership in the Guild, other
abilities are necessary for a successful
production. Costuming, make-up, and
stage management skills are vital parts of
the play. All Drama Guild members must
therefore show a genuine interest in the
many aspects of the theatre.
In essence, we hope that an organiza-
tion such as the Tilden Drama Guild will
prepare the students to see more theatre
and appreciate it more. What better way
is there to learn and enjoy than by identi-
fication with a "live" actor as he plays his
role! lt is far more meaningful to the view-
er than a fleeting one-dimensional image
on a television or motion picture screen.

Tilden's Mock Trial Team has been in
competition for several years, and has
had some very successful seasons. The
Team competes against other schools
and consists of three attorneys, a coach,
and the necessary number of witnesses.
This year's team has done rather well
in their meets as the members have inter-
acted well with Mr. Kay, our coach.
Those participating this year include
Stephanie Morales, Bridgette Burrowes,
Katherine McKay, Nancy Soto, Theresa
Baptiste, and Danny Rossy.
The effort that the team puts forth in
the practice sessions is apparent when
they compete against other schools. ln an
early match this year, Tilden easily de-
feated Adlai Stevenson H.S.

Each year high schools throughout
New York City compete in the Aca-
demic Olympics. This year Tilden
competition for the first time.
Guided by Ms. Parker the 2O-mem-
ber team was divided into four smaller
squads. Each specialized in a particu-
lar subject area. The areas generally
covered by the competition included
Language Arts Math and Science So-
cial Studies and Omnibus. Omnibus
includes questions from general sub-
plays and sports.
Each meet consists of four rounds.
ln each round the participating
schools are asked five questions plus
two team questions. The team winning
the round receives three points the
loser one. Ties result in each team
receiving two points.
Tilden lost its first two games but
by a score of 52-18. The Academic
Olympics team was led by seniors
Bridgette Burrowes Helen Chin and
Deborah Cowell. With a host of juniors
on the horizon the team should carry
on well next year.

During the year 1979-1980 a student
by the name of Crystle Brown felt it nec-
essary to initate a Gospel Chorus at Til-
den. She approached Mr. Kerner about
the idea and he readily gave his permis-
sion. Crystle began to search for a faculty
advisor and found Mr. Nichols, who gra-
ciously consented to be their advisor.
A group of interested students met and
organized the new choir. They were given
the name K'Tilden's Voices of Inspiration"
Under the leadership of Mr. Nichols,
the group attained high recognition by
winning second place in the City-wide
Gospel Chorus competition. From this
achievement Tilden was granted the sum
of 510000, plus a certificate of honor for
The Gospel Chorus is still growing and
would like to attain a membership of 100
voices or more. Stella McNair who is the
president at this time invites more stu-
dents to come and join in helping them to
lift up their voices in song and praise.
Tilden H.S. is fortunate to have a fine
all-girls chorus. The Cantata is made up
of girls who sing selections that are ar-
ranged for high-treble voices.
Cantata performs at various times
during the school year but the main
performance is at the annual Spring
Concert. This year the Cantata sang

out to perform solo parts. Such class
acts include Marjorie Joseph Tawana
Roberts and Debbie Reidus. All the par-
ticipants strive for the highest goals they
can meet: to perform at even greater
standards than those set at the Spring

ing force for students to get involved in

The 1985-86 edition of the Blue Devils
saw Tilden attack the toughest schedule
in New York City. Appearances in the
Blazer Basketball Festival at Hunter Col-
lege, the Gobbler Classic at F.I.T., the
Martin Luther King, Jr. Classic at Colum-
bia University, and the president's Classic
in Bridgeport, Connecticut were high-
lights of the campaign.
There were many exciting moments
this season, including a stirring victory
over Boys High on the road. Tilden be-
came the first team to beat Boys at their
new school, which opened in 1976. Of
primary importance, though, was Til-
clen's winning the Brooklyn IIIA Division
Championship for the second time in
three years after a 17-year dry spell.
The 185-'86 squad was dominated by
seniors. Al Woodson was the leading
scorer for the second year in a row, aver-
aging 17Vz points per game. He reached
a milestone at Columbia in the King Clas-
sic by scoring his 1,000th career point.
Another senior, Jacob Edwards, was
the most consistent player for Tilden all
year. He shared the rebounding load with
junior Larry McCollum and averaged
more than eight per game. Eric Green, a
3-year veteran, displayed excellent ball
handling and passing abilities throughout
the season, and led us to victory against a
stubborn Canarsie five. Lamonte Ratcliff
joined us after the football season, and
was a valuable addition, proving his con-
tention as the best all-around athlete at
Despite the outstanding record of 17-
5, this was a team without stars. Seven
players scored 20 points or more in a
game. lt was a truly Tilden-oriented
squad, and a credit to the schcpl and the
East Flatbush Community.

The Girls Basketball season began with
a loss to South Shore H.S., partly be-
cause many of our players were appear-
ing on the court for the first time, Howev-
er thanks to the efforts of Coach Cucuzza
and Mr. McCullan, an interested parent,
the team instantly began to improve.
The first step was to go over the basic
skills of the game. We also designed sev-
eral different plays for the team to follow.
Once the girls had learned these few
instructions, they proceeded to play bet-
ter basketball throughout the season. Our
record didn't improve very much, but
you could see the girls' confidence grow
game by game.
Finally in the last game of the season,
the Tilden girls went on to defeat F.D.R.
by a score of 38-24, truly the high point
of the campaign. The main positive note
is that many of this year's players will be
back next season.
Deserving honorable mention this sea-
son were Monica Mitchell, an excellent
point guard and ball-handler, Kiveli
Black, our best shooter, and Brenda Ni-
cols, Tilden's top rebounder and inside
shooter. We also got great performances

As coach Herb Abramowitz lies
basking in the sun somewhere in the
Caribbean, interim coach Anthony
Castelli, a.k.a. Communication Arts
phenom, will be hard at work drilling
the fundamentals of baseball to the
1986 Blue Devils.
According to coach Castelli, the out-
look for the '86 season is indeed hope-
ful. This year the Blue Devils will have
the services and expertise of returning
seniors and the enthusiasm and zeal of
The 1986 edition will be lead by
team captain, senior Anthony Fore-
man la budding star on the horizonl,
and his equally talented co-stars Larry
Bolton, Clinton Charter, Chad Smith,
and a host of others.
Coach Castelli always stresses the
important fundamentals of the game
during practice sessions, as well as a
healthy mental outlook of having fun
with the sport. "Our goals this year
will be very realistic and very attain-
able," states the coach. "We will im-
prove on last year's 2-10 record and
play .500 ball. Right now, these are
our two objectives."
Besides a love for the game, the
team always looks forward to the an-
nual dinner and award ceremony at
the end of the season. This season
they hope to surprise many of their
skeptics. As Tug McGraw once said,
"Ya gotta believe!"

This season's Softball Team has
emerged with many new and inexperi-
enced players. Returning though,
were veterans Barbres Brown, Nicole
Auguste, Sheryl Creighton, Monica
Mitchell, Sofia Allen, and Monique
Harvard. Coach DeSiano feels that
these girls will lead the team in spirit
Some of the new and determined
players are Marie James, Cherylann
Pearce, Debbie Readus, Veronica
Reinosa, Stephanie Stewart, So-
loyanda Young, Hailey Vaughan,
Sherley Pierre, Coretta Williams, In-
dra Escoe, Rosemarie Phillip, Kim
Hinkson, and Maxine Dumorney.
This year, Tilden has been placed in
an entirely new division. Perhaps
through the stages of developing new
talent, Tilden's girls may find them-
selves near the top or at the top of
Unfortunately, last year's biggest
obstacle - inexperienced pitching -
has not been rectified. Pitching is a
crucial element of the game that is
required for a successful season. How-
ever, the determination of the girls,
the new prospects who have joined
the team, and the pure desire and
dedication to play softball will enable
us to be ready against any opponent.
Coach DeSiano began practice ses-
sions in early March, and covered all
aspects of the game such as hitting,
fielding, and strategy. All were eager
to improve their skills.
The Tilden infield rated as one of
the best in the P.S.A.L. with Sofia Al-
len at first, Barbres Brown at the key-
stone, Sheryl Creighton at short, and
Monica Mitchell at the hot corner.
Complementing the quartet was catch-
er Nicole Auguste.
Softball is self-rewarding, especially
when confidence and consistency is
evident. Tilden's Softball Team is
filled with enthusiasm and pride that
will be carried throughout the season.

Perhaps the biggest difficulty for the
Tilden Football Team this year was to
rekindle confidence in the players' abili-
ties and in the coaching staff following
our "no win" season of 1984. Many play-
ers were, in their own way, showing their
feelings agains the football program by
getting down on themselves.
l was fortunate to recruit Bill Stevens
as an assistant football coach this year.
Coach Stevens' energy and knowledge of
the game made a great deal of difference
to the program. His input was the catalyst
that resulted in the winner's attitude that
culminated with a 48-O win over Bryant
There were many good things that
came out of this Phoenix rising from the
ashes this year. Robert Carroll, a 6'7",
230 lb. tackle, came into his own and was
selected to the Brooklyn All-Star Team.
Robert started at tackle in the Fugazi
Bowl, and was complemented most of the
year by defensive captain Tyrone Rollins,
who seemed to be literally in on every
Anthony Neptune and Dave Bedeau
were two other players who exhibited a
sense of pride and confidence in them-
selves. The pair proved to be the most
exciting tandem of backs in the borough.
Bedeau, in fact, beat New Utrecht almost
The Tilden roster was spotted with
several excellent first year players. Brent
Morris started the season at outside line-
backer and did an excellent job. From the
first day Brent reported to practice, l got
the impression that he could perform.
Norman Rembert was another young
player who played admirably at center
and linebacker. Andrew Burton also de-
serves credit for his hard-hitting work at
Although I saved him for last, Merlin
Thomas will always be number one in my
mind. Merlin, a 5'7" running back, in-
stilled the discipline and pride in the
team. His example and leadership helped
to guide the team up the arduous road of
success. I will truly miss Captain Merlin
Thomas, and l wish him the best of suc-
cess at Albany State University.

The 1985 Soccer Season was a very
successful one for Tilden High School as
the team became the Brooklyn "A" Divi-
sion Champs. They enjoyed a very excit-
ing season even though they were
knocked out of the playoffs by a shoot-
out competition which resulted in a 1-0
During the season many of the team's
players had many outstanding moments.
Senior Kevin Croft lead the team ot its
division standing by scoring half of the
team's 24 goals. Goalie Kevin Hylton had
many spectacular saves during his season
as did relief goalie Samuel Philips. Stop-
per Gregory Gittens was a raging dynamo
as he ran about the field intercepting and
stealing the ball left and right. Newcomer
Anthony Walker-Narr also had some ex-
citing moments in the field.
The team roster consisted of seniors
Kevin Croft, Darryl Agard, Anthony
Walker-Narr, and Gregory Gittens. Also
complementing the team were Adrian
Gittens, Joseph Horn, Peter McKenzie,
Adrian Mullings, Samuel Phillips, Dalton
Wiggan, Lyndon Henry, Kevin Hylton,
Derick Phillips, Wayne Wilson, David
Mais, and Derrick Israel.
During the season the team exper-
ienced many unsettling incidents such as
unprepared fields, last-minute game loca-
tion changes, and even a mistake by the
Soccer Commissioner himself! Even so,
the team never lost its desire to play, and
many of events were extremely exciting.
At the start of the season, team Cap-
tain was Gregory Chewett, however be-
cause of an injury sustained early in the
season he was unable to complete his
term of office. Star sweeper Lyndon Hen-
ry then took over as Captain. Team spirit
was very high all through the season. Al-
though we were knocked out of the play-
offs and greatly disappointed, we are
looking ahead to next season's outing.

The girls volleyball team started this
year with an entire new roster and a new
coach. After a slow start, the team was
finally able to win three games, thus plac-
ing them in third place in their division.
Our captain, Sherry Thompson, led
the way with her teammates, Chantal
Numo, Sophia Small, Lydia Small, Char-
maine Henry, Miccal Scott, Julia Frank,
Rosemarie Philip, and Charlene Dowtin.
Our matches were against Canarsie
High School, Lafayette, Lincoln, and
New Utrecht. We were victorious over
Lafayette twice and Lincoln once. Al-
though our other matches ended in de-
feat, the games were much closer than
the scores would indicate.
We would like to thank our manager
Michelle Rice for her overwhelming sup-
port and being our number one fan.
We wish our seniors, Sherry Thomp-
son, Chantal Numa, and Lydia Small the
best of luck in their future endeavors.
Our remaining players will start again in
September and look forward to a suc-

The winning spirit of Tilden's teams is
largely due to the support they get from the
cheering squad. These squads give the team
that little extra push to do better and win.
They concoct their own cheers and rock any
school in New York City when they put
those feet into action. The squad is divided
into three essential parts: the Twirlers, the
Boosters, and the Cheerleaders.
The Twirlers are seven girls who are ex-
tremely talented and athletic. When they get
into action, they will amaze you with a host
of tricks and imaginative ideas.
The Boosters are the largest and loudest
of the cheering squads. They sing their
cheers in harmony and move with the beat.
The Cheerleaders are the gymnasts of the
group as well as the most versatile. Our
Cheerleaders can do some of the best Cart-
wheels, Splits, and Flips without missing a
note. All this and Pom Poms too! Three
cheers for Tildenls Cheerleaders!
All three groups practice every day to
make sure that they are well rehearsed and
ready to go. It's worth it because we are
proud of our school and our teams.
Congratulations to parent advisor, Mrs.
Wilkinson, and the Captains: Keona Evelyn
of the Twirlersg and Cheryl Edgehill of the
Boostersg and Terra Green and Diane Hous-
lin of the Cheerleaders.

On January 24, 1986, we the students of Samuel J.
Tilden HS. brought forth our own "Classical Touch" on
the occasion of the annual Fashion and Talent Show. The
show was coordinated by Takisha Davis, with the help of
Stephanie Morales and Robbin Coachman. Ms. Debra Syl-
vester served as faculty advisor for the event, and Rommie
Saunders and company handled the stage work.
"Classical Touch" was not an easy production to put on.
There were several delays to encounter, notably finding a
time the auditorium would be available. There were also
the questions of practice and advance publicity to solve.
Ultimately we receivedra reprieve, and additionaltime
was found to prepare forthe event. With this respite, we
were able to enlist the services of artist Gerald Simon to
produce all the special effects for the show.
"Sell, sell, sell , . . oh so many tickets to sell!" If you
wanted a good seat, you had to buy in advance because all
seats were reserved. Waiting for the last minute would stick
you in the boondocks.

The high road through Tilden
Memories from Tilden will
forever be in our minds.
How we grew into a mature
state of mind. Ready for the world.
Entering in as wild. untamed
Moving on into the giddy
Mouthing off as the junior who
wants to be leader of the pack.
And lastly the senior. graduate
of the class of 1986.
What an accomplishment!
No more will we be amongst
the family of Tildenites.
We know and love. together. in
our alma mater.
From now on we must put all the knowledge
and maturity instilled in us by our
parents, counselors, and teachers. and
put it into our future endeavors.
As we say farewell to Tilden High,
l.et's lock away our memories so that
they are treasured for eternity.
lt's time to say Goodbye, Tilden as we
signal for the turn on our next road.
