Fer hung in the air like thick fog. One could hear a soft clink, clink, clink of spurs coming closer and closer. Could it be? Was it possible? Suddenly, Greg Good Guy jumped out and rescued the town folks. He was a hero. As the sun began to sink, Greg Good Guy took his leave. He will never be forgotten. He will live on in their memories always. In western books, fairy tales, movies and such, the fantastic ex- ploits of legendary heroes are told. Well, in 1986 a different kind of legend was told. It was a legend of joy and sorrow, good times and had times, ac- complishments and failures, but never defeat. This legend told of the lives of determined in- dividuals who, no matter what, came out on top. Vandals of '86 had many legendary successes beginning with day one when the highest enrollment ever was recorded. Football heroes captured the district title with a 10-0 record. Several were elected on district teams and some even to All-East Texas teams. Sports heroes were not the only legends to he found. Clubs also made history with their achievements. junior Historians placed a historial marker on the jarmen oil well as well as becom- ing part of the Adopt a Highway and the Adopt a Building pro- grams. Student Council will be remembered for its adoption of a highway, but more significant than that, was its efforts in pro- moting school dances. Keeping in tune with everyone else, the band and choir made their mark. The band made straight first divisions at l..T Sing merrily.

Students enjoy danc- ing to the popular tunes provided by a guest Dj at the Homecoming Dance. Events that made the students' lives more worthwhile ong sandy beaches. The sun warm- ing your back as you lie there dreaming of that special someone or maybe just catching up on some Z's. This is the blissful scene of which many students were a part until that first day of this legendary year. Summer activities were just the begin- ning of that story of heroes. Students made not only the regular school activities legen- dary but also the extra-curricular and out- side activities. One special event which held many legend-making thrills was Homecoming '86, Not only did the Vandals live up to the winning tradition, but there was also the usual crowning of a Homecoming Queen. This year she was Senior Lisa Powell who was crowned in the pouring rain, Along with the traditional activities was the Luau dance sponsored by the Stu- dent Council. "This year's parties beat the heck out of all the parties in the past," junior Kelleah Gossett said. Not only was the Luau a success, but all dances sponsored by the Student Council this year were unmatched by any school dances before. Living up to past legends was the spring production of "Dark of the Moon," which also went to UIL One-Act Play competition. Actors and actresses were not the only ones in the spotlight, UIL literary achievers provided their chapter in this legendary year. They were very successful at every meet they attended. Students made history wherever they went, whether they met new people on a fun outing to Tyler or just learned to ap- preciate their friends by a campfire. "My friends and I go to Tyler and have fun," Freshman April Geddie said. "We like to go to Mazzio's to eat pizza and then go see a movie." As the year drew to a close, friends spent more and more time together, especially as seniors spent senior day together sharing the joyful friendships which had been theirs for so long. As the end of the year came, graduation was the final chapter in the legend, but the memories will remain as one remembers that the students at VHS were always LIV- ING A LEGEND.

It is a time for splashing in lakes and pic- nicing on beaches, but for some students summer is a time for hard work and little pay. Some students had summer jobs. Others had camps and summer workouts to help them prepare for the new school year. "Summer workouts were some- times a pain, but in the long run they were worth it," Senior Cheerleader Tauna Blevins said. Student Life 1?1WQif?B5i:4f' fr-we .

"Fads come and go, but fashion is a reflection upon the per- son, not just the time." Girls could be seen in everything from stirrup pants and long sweaters to mermaid skirts and paisley print shirts. "This year's styles are things our parents wore," junior jill Meyer said. "I like the clothes everyone wears this year because they're dif- ferent and add a new touch." Melina Battenfield Pretty as a picture.

Lots of large sweaters were seen as well as pleated pants on some of the more "stylish" men.

As always, the fans were there in full force showing their spirit and pride. The usual spectators in at- tendance consisted of proud parents, fellow classmates, suppor- tive faculty members, and Ex- Vandals. It did not matter where the game was located, the Vandals were always well-represented. Through hot gymnasiums, cold, wet bleachers, and blackouts, many devout fans never missed a game. An example of this devotion is Mrs. Cleo Bourland. "I feel an interest in the students," said Mrs. Bourland. "I want them to know that they are more than just a person in my roll book." Q f fa se Qs S55 Q a ,Va a Sometimes, the support cannot only come from the crowd, but from the sidelines also. "When my teammates cheer for me, it makes me feel good," said Senior Kim Wfillingham. "The more people in attendance and the louder the noise, the better the game. I love it!" Along with basketball players, the same holds true for football players. "When the crowd is yelling, stomping their feet, and cheering, you get a good feeling," junior Matt Fincher said. "You put forth more effort when the crowd is more supportive." Crowds, whether they know it or not, have a direct affect on the outcome of the game. All of those cold nights and packed gym- nasiums are worth the effort. Tina Libhart Af 17? 3 2 Student Life N.

In- spire of the rain soaked field and a power outage, the mighty Vandals still captured a victory and Lisa Powell was crowned Homecoming Queen. The glamour and beauty of being crowned Homecoming Queen was dampened ever so slightly as the torrential downpour continued to flood the field causing the nominees to concentrate even more on their poised motions. "The whole thing was ironic. Daddy and I were cracking jokes because it was supposed to be so glamorous and we were all soaked," recalled Julie Griffin. The entire week was more of a fairy tale to some of the girls, from the moment Mr. Homer Terry an- nounced their names as nominees to the very second Missy Beaird, ex-Queen, crowned Lisa.

Class sponsors set up tables in the snack bar during A and B lunch for students to cast their votes for their favorite classmates. These votes were collected and counted reveal- ing the winners.

With extreme cau- tion, one approaches the object to ex- amine it doser. Then, a voice is heard from above, "Excuse me: I was just con- ducting an experiment." Experiments were common in the many academic classes throughout the year. Some were to help students obtain winning positions in competition. Others were to aid in the everyday education program. "Experiments reinforce what you are to learn in theory," Science teacher jim Kroculick said. In academic competition, the 'brains' faired well. Several contests were entered including the Physics Olympics at East Texas State University. Academics achieved legendary stan- dards as students filled the honor rolls to the brim every six weeks on every grade level. "This year as far as academics, we have probably been about average or probably above," High school principal, Homer Terry said. Not only were honor rolls filled, but minds were filled with knowledge. This knowledge was not always acquired by means of textbooks. Sometimes students enjoyed leaming from experienced in- dividuals who spoke as guests. "It's like experience is a better teacher," Senior Thomas McClanahan said. "Guest speakers give you a more realistic view than the textbook." Other times students took short field trips to focus on a concept being studied in the classroom. "I like field trips because it gives a break to the regular boredom of classroom activities," Sophomore john Pickett said.

Many people ride the bus home and watch television for the rest of the evening and make time to do their homework. "Usually I go home and complete my homework and then I sleep and prepare for the next day," junior Ti- juana Veasey said. Others visit people that they don't see at school. Still, there are those that work after school. There are several groups of people who stay at school for different ac- tivities. Tutorials, which start at 3:45 and end at 4:30, help people who are having difficulty in a subject. Band keeps some busy practicing and perfec- fter the 3:35 pm bell and practice for whatever audition may be coming up, but most of the time I ride the bus home and do homework," Sophomore Celeste Lunceford said. Quite a few boys and girls are kept busy with sports. Football, basketball, baseball, and track practices run from 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. almost every day of the week. "Football practice is hard work. So after, I go home and eat a big dinner," Sophomore john Pickett said. Let us not forget the dreaded Deten- tion Hall. This begins at 3:40 and is over at 4:15. Even though this is a form of punishment, it has a bright side. It gives students a chance to finish their homework before going home so that they are able to spend an evening ofleisure around the house do- ing the thing they enjoy most. ting their musical talents.

One could sleep, write notes, play practical jokes on the teacher, or maybe start a fire in the trash can. There is, however, the old stand by of having a guest speaker during a class. "I think a guest speaker makes the subject more in- teresting because they relate first hand experiences," Sophomore Shana McKee said. Guest speakers lend a hand in keeping students in- terested by adding extra in- put to the lesson. "So much can be learned by having a guest speaker and the kids enjoy the ex- perience because they don't have to look at the same old face and listen to the same old voice," teacher Mary Stephenson said. Of course there are those who look at guest speakers at a different angle. "I enjoy guest speakers especially when you get out of class work," freshman Gina Holder said. "But I do like to hear them because sometimes what they have to say might help what we are studying." Most people know that doing the same old thing in class can put a person to sleep Cand it usually doesb, but guest speakers bring a much welcomed break in the daily routine of class.

Some people satisfy their need to sleep - in class, while others do what is need- ed to get the day over and done. Then the teacher springs a surprise on the class by notifying them that they have a project due and it is for a major grade. Some students cheer while others moan and groan. Class projects sometimes make class time pass more rapidly and most everyone is at ease - until the deadline arrives. "Projects are sometimes very 'Nu-,..,.,, hard, but you can do it if you're willing to work hard to make a good grade," Sophomore Alanna Davidson said. Projects range from art caricatures, government contracts, home made garments to professional-looking wood cabinets and a The Scarlet Letter scaffold. Following the initial shock of the assignment comes the constant complaints, and then the work finally begins, Some students find it easy to get started, while others procrastinate. "Unlike Mr. Howell's aft caricature that made me want to work, Mr. Armstrong's govern- ment contract forced me to work," Senior Victor Larsen said. In spite of the hectic week for weeksb of work on the project, along with the regular class load, students find that they can survive long enough to turn the project in on time and breath a sigh of relief. "Projects involve a lot of time and work, but the finished results should make you proud of what you've accomplished," junior jill Meyer said.

FCA was also successful, They made legends by starting a junior high huddle. Another major step in LIVING A LEGEND this year was the parties given by the Student Council. Student Council and junior Historians supported the Adopt-a- highway program, but they made even greater strides in History competition where they advanced to state. Because Texas is celebrating its 150th birthday, junior Historians were active in the placement of a Special Sesquicentennial marker on the ad- ministration building. The speech department received new video equipment which was very useful. They were also very successful with their spring production and in the District UIL meet. The band also received a sweepstakes trophy for its performances throughout the year. Also, members placed in All-State. Solo and ensemble contestants qualified for state on musical instruments and in twirl- ing. Choir also had several members ad- vance to state competition with solo and ensemble entries. Hard work also brought cheerleaders rewards in camp. They received six ribbons including the Super Squad award and a spirit stick. The NHS raised money for charities and visited the nursing homes. Not to be left out are the publications staffs. The staffs of the Vandalite '85' and Vandal Voice won the ILPC Distin- guished Merit Award.

They also, along with the Student Coun- cil, adopted a highway to help control litter in the Van city limits. The Speech Depart- ment entertained everyone by once again performing a successful play, The Vandal band once again stayed busy going to mar- ching and concert and sightreading contests along with solo and ensemble contest to receive their 8th consecutive Sweepstakes honor. ln addition, the choir got involved in many activities including contest, solo and ensemble, and performing concerts. The FFA pleased many by holding a hotdog supper and a fish fry in the spirit of the Ses- quicentennial celebration. The journalism staff certainly kept a tight schedule all year as deadlines for the Vandal Voice and Vandalite were met with sweaty brows and tired kminds.

The lockeroom walls whisper of all the things it has heard and learned over the past year. As they are slammed for the last time, the lockers shout the final salute of triumph, pain, agony and ecstasy of the legends who have now gone.

A time when the roar of the crowd pulsed through the team and became its heartbeat. But now its over. The crowds have gone home and the moments of glory have faded into memories.

Senior Victor Larsen happily smiles after receiving "Best Costume" at the costume party held by the band. Through it all they persevere to produce a legend s the lights of the school go on about 7:00 a.m., silence fills the air. Then, suddenly, as the 8 o'clock bell rings, laughter fills the air along with all the idle chatter about what one did last night or who's seeing who. These people were the pulse, the heartbeat of VHS. Through thick or thin, these heroes have made this year one filled with legendary ac- complishments. These people made up the teams - they were the clubs - they were the accomplishments. Not only were they accomplishments in standards outside of VHS, they were legends in everyones heart. Their generosity was in- stilled upon everyone who entered the doors. "I think all the people are pretty nice," Freshman jack Seay said. "I moved in from a different school and they made adjusting easier." Students did their part to aid in the suc- cesses of this year. They participated in clubs, carried the burden of responsiblity many times in order to get the job done, and had fun while doing it. Students made legendary steps towards enjoying work while reaching goals. "School is a lot of work, but we find time to have fun," Freshman Kevin Fowler said. Faculty will also be remembered for their legendary generosity. Many teachers gave of their time, not only in school hours, but in outside time. "There are many teachers who do more than their fair share of work," Senior Penny Irwin said. Teachers also helped students enjoy school, Some worked in one period field trips while others decorated or dressed up to illustrate culture. These imaginative efforts will cast teachers into a heroic aura for all time. "I think it really makes class interesting when teachers do something different," junior Michelle DuBose said. "l really enjoy when Mrs. Bourland dresses up to portray different cultures." As the doors shut for this last time, and the laughter fades into only a memory, one thing will always remain -- the strides made in making the legend -- the legend lived by heroes.

But having " grown up together" in a small school environment helps up to cope. Most of us began kindergarten together. Together we have skinned knees, failed rests, won and lost sports activities, hated homework, attended Homecoming dances, lost steadies, and wished the school term would end. Even spent working, skiing at the lake, dating, or just "hanging out." "I just enjoy being with my friends and having a good time," said Senior Lisa Batie. For some, lifelong friend- ships have been established that will remain in touch through-out the years, The hugs, tears, and pats on the back will never be forgotten. Kelli Wiggins and Penny Irwin Friendships 12 1 ' 'ts ellow classmates, learn together, build long-lasting, IRM FRIENDSHIPS s we, the Seniors of 1986, gathered together last August for registration, we all breathed sighs of relief that it would be our last VHS registration. We were now Seniors and we didn't care if we ever saw Van High School again, if we could just get this last year done with. As the year progressed though, we have become closer. The small trigonometry class has become as small family in so many words, as well as all the other groups of Seniors. The band in their many ac- complishments, the cast of 'Dark of the Mo0n,' and so on have all become extremely close. "I have become closer to my Jay Anderson Stacy Anderson Van Baggs Sam Bass W Lisa Batie Melissa Battenfield t' Janice Bennett Tauna Blevins Eileen Boyd y Durenda Brawner Paula Brey y Billy Carey y People friends through all my activities because I spend extra time with them and we went through a lot together," Senior Chad Ktisher said." Events all through the year keep adding to a particular closeness of the Senior dass of 1986. We have all come to act as family. There are quarrels and disputes, but they all last for a couple of days at most. I mean what is a family without arguments and the Senior Class of 1986 is no exception. "Sometimes we argue and we have our disagreements, but we always remain friends in the end," jay Anderson said. But now as this year comes to an end, many of us have mixed x feelings. We are all ready to get out of Van High School, but not so ready to split up from our friends. Granted we'll all keep in touch for a while, but we will eventually go on our ways and develop new "families" elsewhere. But nobody can argue that the Family of Seniors of l986 will always hold a special bond bet- ween each other. Martha Hynes I can't believe this!

Starting with the Class of '88, 24 credits instead of 21 are required for graduation. Some students are on an ad- vanced transcript which re- quires 26 credits for gradua- tion in all public schools in the state of Texas, "lt is go- ing to be very hard and they will really have to work hard to make the grade" junior Renee Chandler said. This HALLENGE new law is included in House Bill 72. With the requirements in this law, students with an advanced transcript will have little time for electives, extra-curricular activities, and study halls because sev- en credits are the most that can be obtained in one year.

That's the plight of sophomores for they feel that they have no purpose - they are "nothings" "Sophomores are just sor- ta here at school," Sopho- more john Pickett said. Thinking Hard! Trying to find something to get involved in seems to be the thoughts on Tim Haugh's mind. Q , All other classes seem to have a purpose: freshmen are new and the brunt of pranks and jokesg juniors have fundraisers, plan the prom, and order their senior ringsg seniors anticipate graduation and they are the top dogs. The sophomores have to earn a spot for themselves by excelling in athletics or in UIL activities.

The TEAMS test, Texas Education Assessment of Minimum Skills, covered reading, math, and writing. "The students felt that the TEAMS test was much easier than the TABS," Mr. Giles said. The TEAMS test, which used to be known as the TABS test, is given in February.

Every ninth grader hears that and other teasing comments dur- ing their first year in high school. The school bell rings and all the freshmen shudder at the thought of the teasing. Almost every ninth grader is ridiculed during their first year in high school, but most of them learn to laugh it off. "The upperclassmen tease me a lot, but I know they are just joking," IaDana Huff said.

"It doesn't bother me much because no one has real- ly bothered me," Matt David- son said. Now that the year is over, maybe the 'upcoming sophomores' will look back on it with lasting memories.

"I think the courses are helping to prepare me for when I go to college," Matt Davidson said. The classes are taught by Mrs. joan Driver, the school librarian, one day each week for 12 weeks. The students are learning to use the card catalog and how to find and use reference books, to help them. "I think the courses help the students in the long run. I wouldn't spend my time teaching them if it did not help them," Mrs. Driver said. By knowing how to use the card catalog, the students are able to find books much easier because they are listed in alphabetical order. Working with the reference books teaches the students how to find certain articles and look up certain materials.

She may provide them with answers to their questions and may be able to provide other material and resources to help them with a course or an outside interest.

Eighth graders held many different ideas about their freshman year in high school. Most students quick- ly predicted high school would not be just fun and games. Most eighth graders also knew, moreover, that along with high school, came the worries concerning their classes and the treat- ment they would receive by upper-classmen. "l'm worried about whether or not the sophomores and juniors bul- ly you around," eighth grader jesus Roldan said. In addition, students realized the big changes high school would make from junior high. "High school is a larger school. There are new places to go, and new teachers to meet," jesus said. "We would be the under- dog. Thats a big change from eighth grade," eighth grader Adrian Smith said, Eighth graders also real- ized that high school did not have to mean all work and no play!

This year was the hrst year eighth graders were re- quired to take a semester of study. According to com- puter lit teacher Patience McGuffey, some people were excited about the course, some were not. Eighth graders, of course, had their likes and dislikes about the learning procedure.

"I like playing the games. I hate it when we're not working on the computers," eighth grader Timmy Burkett said. Unfortunately, some eighth graders came into computer lit with the wrong idea about what was done in the class. These eighth graders learned to appreciate the value of the computer. "Computers are helping us in today's society. They let us know what to expect in the future," eighth grader Shannon Berry said. Michael Bullington It did it again!

Youngsters stay long hours after school with hopes of starting in the next game. These practices are very hard and painful, but they always seem to be worth it when the team wins a game. Seventh grader Susie Brawner said, "When you practice, it is worth it because it will help you to win."

Most of these students have just one sport they really can't wait for. Seventh grader Steve Per- cilield said, "Basketball is my favorite sport. I get all excited when I play." When these youngsters look back a few years from now on seventh grade, they will realize the practices were worth while. There will be only fond memories of the losses and victories of the first year in competitive sports. 'X-.f I he h.....x:..., D'Lee English at 'Ki A 'K i 'md 55' Q , .

The students par- ticipate in picture and music memory, spelling, number sense, expressive writing, oral reading, and story tell- ing. In most events, teams of three are chosen with one alternate. Teachers begin preparing the students six weeks before the U.I.L. meet. They prac- tice once or twice a week un- til two weeks before the ac- tual meet, then they practice every day. "Students really enjoy the competition. It gives them confidence. Apparently, they have plenty of it. They've won first place every year so far," stated Judy Gross.

The fifth grade year is dehnitely one to remember. This is the first year students participate in band. All of the fifth grade stu- dents take a special test for band. The directors, Mr. Ken- neth Griffin and Mr. Barry Morrison, review all the results of the test along with grades at school, to determine the students who will become members. The fifth grade year is the exploratory year to find out what instrument they are best suited for. The instruments are provided by the school. If the students wish to continue band after fifth grade, they buy their own instruments. "Out of all the students I teach, fifth graders are the best. They are so enthusiastic and interested. Fifth grade students are different than any other groups, " Mr. Griffin said. April Huddle The beat goes on. Fifth grade band students practice for the concert that is held in the spring.

Aside from the students favorite classes of math and art, they enjoy other activities. Baseball seems to be the favorite past time with foot- ball and soccer following close behind. Their excuses for not hav- ing their homework range from forgetting their book to the dog ate it. It definately takes "Dif- ferent Strokes" to fit in with the other folks. Incidently, "Different Strokes" was their most popular television show.

It isn't until third grade that students really begin writing words in cur- sive. Even though the words are hard to figure out at first, most third graders agree writing in cursive is easy. "I like cursive writing but I miss a lot in cursive. I print better, but I still like cur- sive," Misty Brittain said.

Saturday is not the only time cartoons are available. Weekday mornings before school also seem to be a popular time for tuning in on the tube. "I like to watch Tom and jerry in the mornings, they're funny and cute," Heather Morgan said. After school cartoons also capture the attention of first graders. "After school, I watch He Man. It is a good show!" Matt Organ said.

As children, first graders are surrounded in a world of fantasy, where a life on the screen looks glamorous. "I want to be a professional football player when I grow up. 'I'hat's what I was for Halloween," First grader Matt Organ said. Not only is it the screen that looks glamorous, but anything filled with excite- ment and danger seems to in- trigue the minds of first graders. "I think I'll grow up to become a policeman. They have a lot of excitement," jason Williams said. Still, there are a few who want to uphold tradition and enter the professional field. "I'm going to become a doctor. They make alot of money," Heather Morgan said. Although, nowadays there are more fields open in the job market than there used to be, the same dreams still seem to hold true for all children.

"Holley Colley is one of my friendsg we share secrets sometimes," Charlesetta jones said. It is important to have friends to share secrets with, but recess is also important for having friends. Play- mates are especially good at this time. That's when there's time for talking and playing together. Some like the companion- ship for playing games. "jared Dutton is my best friend. We like to wrestle outside during recess," Matt Organ said. Others just like their playmates to share good times with. "I like to play on the slides with my best friend Faye jackson," said jennifer Odom. If anything is to be remembered about first grade, it will probably be the special friends who made growing up a lot more fun.

In order to overcome the same old boring routine, many of the teachers have classroom activities that are more fun than the boring rountine. One way inV which Mr. james Golden makes American History class more interesting is by showing historical movies such as Gone With The Wintl. Along the line of Home Economics, Mrs. julie Mazy goes all out to make the at- mosphere go along with the foodlabs the class is doing. Around holidays, elemen- tary teachers make a special effort to have interesting and fun art projects. These are just a few of the many ways in which teachers make school more enjoyable.

Among these supporting fans are several types of people. One type is school board members, which may surprise some students. Most students picture school board members as men in suits who make the rules and decisions that affect the students, but in reality they are people who are also in- terested in all school activities and eager to support them. There are many ways in which the members get in- volved with activities. They range from being a sponsor on a school trip to sitting and yelling in the stands. School board members have many duties to fulfill and have many respon- sibilities plus their regular jobs, yet they still find the time to come and suppox students and get involved Tauna Ble And this is . . .
