1979 was a year for THS sophomores to begin. First
of all, they had to learn what was expected of them
academically, such as where the classrooms were, and
what they had to study for a test.
There were all the traditions to learn about and new
organizations to choose from.
Athletically and in school government they were a
new part of an old team, and had to learn their place.
But that place was just the beginning, you have to
just what the sophomores did.
know where you are before you can achieve, and that's

STUDENTS MAKE MEMORIES
"We're the class that's on the go, 'cause
we're the class of 8-O." Juniors at THS gave
the school a cheery outlook not only in assem-
blies, but in the everyday classroom situation.
Their main job throughout the year was to
achieve enough money to sponsor the Junior-
Senior Prom. This meant alot of hard work. Ju-
niors submitted classmen to Stuco and various
sporting events. As the "middle kids" they had
experience of being a sophomore and hopes of
becoming Seniors. In all honesty, juniors of
THS did alot to brighten the year and leave
some good memories.
1. Junior class officers: Brad Perry, Andy Hill,
vice-president, Dennis Adamson, sponsor: Mary
Jane Dennis, president, Karen Wallace, secre-
tary-treasurerp Steve Marlay.
2. "Farrah" alias Rhonda Marrs, plays one of
Charlie's Angels in a pep assembly.
3. Juniors Thayne Barton and Scott Spillman
apply their scientific skills to Chemistry class.

with Martha Jones.
3. Junior Robin Griffith is carried off by a

IF YOU CAN KEEP
YOUR HEAD WHEN ALL
"Look out world, here they come!"
Seniors worked hard to make this year the best yet. It was
a year that contained many life-changing decisions. They
faced the ultra-important decision of what to do next year,
whether to work, go to college, or get married.
Senior classmen worked hard in organization and sports
activities to make the year an all around good one. They
also worked hard in the community showing that THS had

something to be proud of. Students were saddened when
Stacey and Tony Michael, fellow students, died August 28
as a result of a car accident.
With the year ended, seniors finally realized that THS
played an Important role in their lives. Good-byes were
hard to say, but seniors left with the feeling that they all in
some small way improved THS for future students.

HAIL TO A NEW CHIEF
THS couldn't have made it without all the
people behind the scenes, such as Mr. Frank
Fregoe, THS principal, who became familiar
with the students and the mechanics of THS.
The school board and Mr. Paul Ricker are
not to go unnoticed. They continued to coop-
erate with the faculty and helped to make this
a good year.
Groups using the gym and cafeteria fre-
quently had to contact Mr. Gary Ferguson,
who directed scheduling for use of these far
cilities. If students lived a reasonable distance
from school, transportation was provided, an-
other responsibility of Ferguson. When one
thinks of all the sports the school participates
in, Ferguson as athletic director, kept busy
planning sports events throughout the year.
1. School changes year after year. Here, Fre-
goe reads about some of those changes.
2. Office wires are sometimes crossed. Fergu-
son and Celia Vaughn attempt to straighten
3. Five schools within the district kept District
Superintendent Paul Ricker busy.
1. Schedules are very important: the clases you take
can be a building block or a stumbling block to your
2. Counseling is hard on a guy!
3. Seniors receive help from Rentfrow to get connec-
tlons with the college of their choice.
4 Brenda Wisner and Mont L nch end their THS ca-
- Y Y
reers by accepting awards from Rentfrow.
Guidance and decisions, those two words become
very important to high school students as they begin to
glimpse their future.
The first time they received guidance from George
Rentfrow or Okie Rose was when they signed up for
their Sophomore classes. The second time was when
they became dissatisfied with the classes they chose
previously. Vocational, general, or collegiate-which-
ever area you students decide to wander off into Rent-
frow or Rose can make the transition from high school
into the "real world" alot easier.
SAT, SCAT, Aptitlde, CLEP, ACT, - Rose and
Rentfrow constatly test us students.

ENERGY RELATES TO CLASSES
Dennis Adamson, instructor of Local History,
whose main purpose is to find information about
the past and share that knowledge with county

With the price of gas rising each time one said
"fill it up", Current Issues helped students get an
understanding of the energy crisis.
State and Local Government students were as-
signed local government officials to observe dur-

N THE JOB TRAINING
Distributive Education is divided into two
classses: Merchandising, which helps students de-
velop skills in areas such as retailing or interior
decorating, and Management, which helps stu-
dents learn to control and administer to employ-
Cooperative occupations lets students acquire
basic skills necessary for employee-employer re-
lations and money management.
Availability of jobs and interviews are two very
important parts of D.E. class. If students obtain a
job, Wayne Brassfield confers with the employer
about their progress.
In C.O.E., students gain experience. They are
released for half a day to go to their various jobs.
Brassfield looks at work performance, interests
and then contacts local employers for placement.
Virgil Walden helps students in the Vocational
Agriculture field and Brassfield in the industrial
and technical fields.

HABLO ESPANOL? I DO!
A teacher must introduce students to something
they aren't acquainted with. Spanish I is the be-
ginning class to understanding the Spanish lan-
Tape drills and games helped students to learn
the new manner of speaking. More stress is ap-
plied to speaking Spanish II. There is also an ex-
tension of verb tenses.
Fluency in speaking and comprehensive reading
of masterpieces are part of Spanish III and IV.

MAN VERSUS MACHINES
Larry Dannar teaches Biology I and II,
Small Gas Engines and Welding class.
Biology I students studied the reproduction
system and had to learn the muscles and bones
of the body. Biology II, an advanced class of
Bilogy I, did independent experiments on a
variety of subjects such as sex hormones in
fish, diets in rats, ESP, and biorliythms.
Going from man to machines was a big
switch when Dannar taught small Gas Engines
and Welding. Small Gas Engines students were
taught makeup of small gas engines and con-
structed their own from lawn mowers, while
the Welding classes learned the basics of
Dannar attended Northwest Missouri State

Buddy Hannaford, instrumental music teacher and
band director, teaches one of the most unique classes
taught at THS .
Besides playing in halftime show and marching in the
Homecoming parade, Hannaford and the band have re-
ceived high honors in music and marching contests. The
band has rceived awards in marching and they also re-
ceived a II rating in concert band competition at Mary-
ville. Besides the band, Hannaford also teaches Music
Theory and Appreciation. This class involves the history
and origin of music. Music Appreciation shows how mu-
sic is compsed and written. After the class tackles the
fundamentals of composing and writing, they then at-
tempt to compose and write music of their own.

DESIGNING THE FUTURE
Accuracy is a word that was often stressed in
Ron Hurst's Drafting class. Students studied a va-
riety of drafting techniques. The drafters drew
different views of projects as well as floor plans
and bolt dimensions.
In Leather class, students were allowed to work
.,,,. -Q on such projects as billfolds, belts and purses.
First, they had to learn how to handle some of
the basic drafting tools such as swivel knives, be- .
velers, and veiners. Nature tan, a fairly new kind of carving leather, allowed students to make pro- 5 ' 5
jects with a limited amount of tooling.

"Let's goto the beach," "hello, good-bye:
these are all simple words and phrases that we
use everyday but, what if you were to bump into
a French-speaking person. How would you com-

learned how to use these phrases under the direc-
tion of French teacher Susan Marner.
French II students learned a wider use of the
language through forms of verbs. French III and
IV continued their grammar and cultural study.

STUDENTS INIPRCVE GRAMMAR
"Students seem to be getting better every year ..." is a
compliment English teacher Barbara Spencer paid to this
year's student body. She has her hands full as she teaches
Basic English and Practical English courses to sharpen up
students' grammar skills. She offers Reading Improvement
to students wanting to improve their reading abilities.
Speech class is a new addition to Spencer's teaching area
and one that she enjoys.
Two student teachers, Jo Summers and
methods of learning to her classes.
Spencer attended TJC where she recieved
an associate arts degree. She then transferred
to Northeast Missouri State in Kirlcsville
where she received a bachelor of science
degree and a Bachelor of Science degree
in sociology. In 1977, Spencer received her
masters degree in English from Kirksville.
Says Spencer, "I feel this year has been a
success for me and, I hope, fuller for my stu-

and sometimes you get a pat on the back for it? To
those students who didn't get symbols of appreciation
but gave their all, you are to be commended, you
made THS a better place to be.

The 78-79 school year was one that certainly deserves a
place in the heart and memory of every student.
Remarkable sports seasons, triumphs and academic
achievements and all-around school improvements were
the product of this year.
All these feats were only accomplished through hard
work, the unselfish giving of each person and team work,
the key to success.
As the last minute of the last day slipped away, students
pondered what lay ahead, for some another year of high
school, for others college, marriage and work.
But through it all, one can say THS is headed for bigger
and better things.
1. Students Mindy Estes, Lori Tapscott, Sabrina Tan-
quary, Dan Austin, David McCollum and Andy Hill try to
find a solution tola current problem.
2. Ron.Hurst reads up so he can tell Brett Buswell how to
complete his project.
3. Hopes dreams and expectations mount as the "Bull-
dogs" charge the field.
