Riding on a crowded bus, standing in the lunchline, having a pop test over a chapter in science Cwhich you did not readh, and participating in school activi- ties helped to make this a year to remember. The ninth grade and the eighth grade students are eagerly looking forward to attending a new school. Next season will bring an entirely new look to the hallowed halls of TJHS. RIGHT: Vickie Douglas and Gary Mitchell show much enthusiasm and interest at the beginning of school. Texan ' 2 We, THE TEXAN staff, are grateful to the Lamar County Echo for assisting with photography in the sports section. A special 'thanks' goes to Mr. Jack Corey, the art instructor, for art work on the cover of our book . As you thumb through this book, we hope you will be able to remember all the little things that space would not allow. It has truly been a year filled with 'memories.'
