What we learn in classrooms is
important. Aside from the basic educa-
tion, there is a great deal one learns
from interactions with fellow students
and teachers. The value of friendship
and honesty is one, the fundamentals
learned are there waiting to be used.
School has a lot to offer: it is just a mat-
ter of meeting the objective and pursu-

High school summarized in one sen-
tence could be called, "A learning proc-
ess that is preparing you for the future."
But it's not only the basic courses such as
English, math, and science that are get-
ting us ready for the real world. It's also
the social relationships that we come to
know during our high school years.
The times that we are able to share
with our friends, whether it is having fun
at a game. dance, or just being there to
listen to them talk after they've failed a
final exam are part of learning. There are
also the good times we spend with that
very special person, whether it is a casual
or formal relationship, it's coming to
know their feelings and being able to
The routine of everyday classroom
experiences not only brings us closer to
fellow students, but helps us to relate to
teachers as well. Setting a good example
on the first day of class will be beneficial
throughout the years. The communica-
tion between a student and teacher is
very important. We seek help in deci
sions for our future from them and have
faith that they will help us to the best of
The values communication and
friendships that we encounter in high
school will never leave us, they will just
become building blocks for future rela

Everyone of us has had, or
will have, that first thrill of hav-
ing a first job. There is excite-
ment, freight, joy and happi-
ness. It gives us a chance to
expand our knowledge of the
real world that comes face-to-
face with us in everyday life
Iobs are the evidence to oth-
ers that maturity and adulthood
are soon to take place. We learn
responsibilities need to be a big
part of life on the job, and we
learn to accept them. Mistakes
come of course, but in the end
we learn from them.
Most jobs require that stu-
dents communicate and get
along with others. It's not
always easy, but through help-
ing and pleasing others, most
students find it a rewarding
experience in the end.
Choosing a career is not easy.
It is a long and never ending
task that begins in high school
for many people.

semester, and the lucky Couples were
Holt and Wanda Shelton, Solange

dings were made as real as possible
complete with formal gowns, tuxes,
wedding cake along with plenty of f

Halloween isn't just dressing up like a favorite monster,
trick or treating, or in some cases egging people. The best
part of halloween is carving the pumpkin, as some stu-
dents did at Ventura High during lunch. The students that
participated in the carving of a pumpkin made a variety of
pumpkin faces in all shapes and expressions.

Why do students go to dances? To dance of Course,
but most of all just to have a good time with their
friends. It's a 'good place to meet the guy or girl you've
been wanting to meet for a long time. For the guys it's
getting up their confidence to ask the girl to dance. For
the girl it's hoping the guy she likes asks her to dance.
What do students do before the dance? Well before
the dance girls are wondering what they're going to
wear or whether they should go buy a new top, pants,
skirt or dress. The guys are busy trying to borrow the
car from their parents or washing and shining the rims

The purpose behind rallies is to generate spirit among
students and the athletes. All kinds of things happen at

N OISY RALLIES
One of the lunch time activities
put on during the year was a pizza
eating contest and a King Of The Log
Competition. Students entering the
pizza eating contest were in for a
surprise - the pizza was made with
very hot jalapeno peppers which
some contestants found to be more
than they could handle. Hot or not,
Richard Allen went on to win the
pizza eating contest. Being King of
The Log wasn't as easy as it sounded.
Some students found it difficult just
to get on the log, let alone knock
someone else off with a pillow. Some
of the Kings Of The Log were Iim
Zdonik, Iim Riggins, Richard Her-
rera, and many others. The activities
of the week were a prelude to the last
basketball game of the spring against

kept the band on its toes. The band played for all the half-
time entertainment with songs from the past to the present
rock and roll. For the second year the band was invited to

marching band but they did a good job trying, as they
marched down the center aisles of the auditorium

Thespians are comprised of V.H.S. students
who sing, dance, act, and enjoy designing and
building sets. This year they produced two
major plays - The Crucible and The Music
Man, and one Club Variety Show.
These presentations required much time,
dedication and also money. Each of the mem-
bers involved in the club helped with produc-
tions and with fund raising to present the tal-
ents of the student body to the general public.

The V.H.S. Dance Company practiced 6th
period during the week, until 4:30 three days a
week. The long hours of practice paid off for their
performances at basketball halftimes and other
performances throughout the city. The people
who watched were pleased with what they saw.
The Dance Company was comprised of seven
members and was led by Patti Sameniego. One of
the company's activities included a workshop
directed by the U.C.L.A. dancers.
Support is what really counts, and the Mat Cats
help out when the going gets rough. These eight

Performing Arts is a class whose main pur-
pose is to develop students in the fields of
vocal, instrumental, dance, emcee, script writ-
ing, drama, and speech. The fruits of their
labors could be seen at many community shows
and a spring show in March. To raise money
they sold singing telegrams to students to send
to local residences. One of the 28 member

Generating spirit throughout V.H.S. was just one of the
79-80 pep squad duties. To encourage enthusiasm at
school games and pep rallies, they kept busy thinking of
new ways to spark excitement in the crowds. Starting in
the spring of '79 and practicing throughout the summer
and after school to improve their performance, they
brought about a more effective involvement among the
Cougars. Special rallies were held in the auditorium,
where there were image shows by Mr. Groveman,
speeches by coaches and advisors, and a favorite was Mr.
Martinez dressed as a cheerleader. A first in years was the
involvement of yell leaders for the squad. They added a
new source of participation helping with pyramids and
other gymnastic stunts. Kim Valley, Cougie, was captain
for the first part of the season. Donna Knickman took over
second half, and song leaders were under the leadership of
Katrina Wallis. Together as a team, they helped us show
V.H.S. is and always will be number one!

of hard work and planning go into making the
prom a success. This year the council traveled to
Los Angeles to hear perspective bands for the
dance. The purpose of the council is to bring dif-
ferent types of activities to the school in general,
and the junior class in particular. They held after
game dances, participated in the International
Food Fair, and held a giant earthball game. The
group meets every other Thursday, and was led by

Treasurer Lynette Pyron, along with Representa-
tives Ioe Seely and Susan Collins.
The Sophomore Class Council is an organiza-
tion open to all tenth grade students, Unlike the

The nursery meets the needs of par-
ents who require competent child-
care while they continue their educa-
tion, but still want to stay close to
their infants. The nursery also func-
tions as a living classroom in child-
care and development, meeting the
needs of approximately 40 VHS stu-
dents who act as nursery helpers
while studying child behavior. Mrs.
lean Cross teaches classes in Parent-
ing and Child development. in addi-

nursery parents and helpers.
"I took the class to really under-
stand little kids," commented Nursery
Helper Mary Towne. "A book tells
you about what typical children do,
and it explains that there are excep-
tions and differences in children.
Well, when you're in class with all the
little kids, you can really see the vari-
ety, and you understand what the
book means. I have a lot more
patience with my little nieces and
nephews now." she concluded.

the Fine Arts Approach
Crafts Productions explains and teaches various
kinds of printmaking, silk screening, embossing,
block printing and etching. The purpose is first, to
teach a fine art approach to the various forms of
printmaking and, second, to provide a school serv-
ice by providing professionally printed posters,
buttons, program covers, and cards for school
activities and events. Students raise money to pay
for equipment such as drying racks, exposure
boxes, film, and inks.
The group designed and printed materials for
school dances, athletic events, the talent show, the
spring muscial, and the faculty tea. ln addition,
they also sold fine art prints. Clubs and organiza-
tions were charged a small fee to help cover the
costs of materials, and felt that Crafts Productions
was a most valuable and creative addition to the
services offered at VHS this year.

was in junior high school in Los Angeles. His father
got him interested in it. He used to go to a workshop,
called The Magic Shop, every Friday night, and his
father would buy him new tricks all the time. Mr.
Scorsch began doing performances for high school
shows and for various clubs. Then he joined the
International Brotherhood of Magicians in 1948, and
has been a member for over 25 years.
He is also a life member of a private club for magi-
cians called The Magic Castle. Only members and
their guests are permitted to attend club perform-

sional demonstrations of his slight-of-hand feats, and

Mark Klevinger feels that, "this years water polo team
played very well against all teams in the channel league.
They played close and even with all opponents, but lacked
the experience to pull out the close games. The high point
of the season was the vigtory over Dos Pueblos. Ventura
beat them for the first time in Ventura's history. The larg-
est crowds turned out for the Buena games, but at the
same time, it was the most disappointing game for Ventura
lost games that we played against them."
"The only thing I didn't like about the season," Mark
continued, "was the lack of other athletes supporting us.
We support them. Why can't they support others sports?
We all represent the same school."
Andy Harvey said, "Water Polo keeps a person busy
and it gives him a chance to participate in a school activ-
ity. It makes the school year more interesting. It would be
helpful if we had a young AAU swim club to get ready for
high school. Then with Coach Hahn's help, we could
really have a successful water polo team," he summed up.

This year's football team had its ups and downs. The
team was blessed to have many talented players, but
critical injuries in crucial games prevented a winning
season. In the words of tailback, Kevin Greene, "The
coaches did an excellent job of keeping the team
together during the bad times." The high point of the
season was the overwhelming defeat over Buena, that
Ventura won by a score of 28 to 0. According to Greene,
"any season is a success when you whip Buena 28 to O!"

Ventura High School soccer team showed much improvement this
year in their games. Beating Buena the first time 2-1 then tieing them
the second time 1-1 was a great highlight. "Roaming from a 1-8-1 last
year, to a 5-4-1 this year was a great improvement. Bob Porter and
Iaime Santana really helped the team out a lot. Better yet, two-thirds
of our Varsity team is coming back next year. Iust wait! Soccer is
going to be totally big - something to look forwarcftof' said Ty
Alicia Anacker stated that, "This year's Soccer team got along
well. We gave our coach plenty of respect. In the games. the whole
team still kept trying hard and didn't give the opposing team a hard
time. We could have done better as a team, if the players had been
willing to improve themselves more in the sport. Soccer has been a
part of my life. I have loved playing it for seven years. I got started by
my best friend's mom. She was coach. This year's team captain, Beth
Sullivan, was a really strong player and helped us out lots."

not going to win a whole lot of games. But
we still try to play our hardest. The games
are all exciting because they are all real
close. We've had to scrap for every game
we've won. I've been involved in sports all

K One has to admit, if VHS didn't have coaches, it wouldn't have
sports. Sports play an important part in life for some students, but a
coach plays an even more important part. Coaches help athletes with
discipline, patience, stamina and personality. A coach will always be
a best buddy willing to help out, and spend time, but yet at the same
time, he is respected as a father. Many times coaches aren't given the
appreciation they deserve for all the work, time and patience they

When we compete against the other teams it's real fun to
meet the people because most of them are real nice and
fun to talk to. Coach Martinez has always done the most
for the team. He got the new sweats, high jump pit, uni-
forms and a juice machine. I enjoy track very much. I like
to run fast and I like to compete in individual sports, and
track has always been my favorite. Last year I practiced
everyday of the week, when it wasn't raining, and all

is really the only way a person can get better trained in the
sport. I want to get better."

For this year's seniors, writing is a form
of art that allows them to express them-
selves in ways to share with others. For
instance, Bob Porter said, "I enjoy writing
because other people enjoy reading it. I
want to make them happy. l'm not looking
for recognition or money, I really don't
care for it."
Some appreciate the hard work tha
goes into other students writing for them.
Some students, like Bob Porter, feel
their writing is a natural talent that they
hope to polish and perfect. What they
strive for is not for accuracy of spelling or
punctuation but rather accuracy of feel-

"Give It Your All"
This year's seniors took lots of interest in the performing arts.
Drum Major Ioe Connell felt it was a great privilege to lead the
V.H.S. Band. "I like the feeling of being under the spotlight at
half-time. Our band has great spirit!" Ioe would like to try out
for the USC band in college. His main goal for this was to win
parade competitions and to show Buena we're here!
Iill Callaway has been twirling a baton for eleven years. She
does her own choreography for each of her performances, and
has gone to many Los Angeles county competitions and
parades, and has brought much honor to her campus. But, she
commented, "Twirling is not my life - it's a hobby."
Keith Roberts expresses himself through drama. He likes to
see people really get into the plays and enjoy them. Keith does
not plan to go into the acting field but would rather go into
mathematics or space research. He leaves next year's perform-
ers with this advice: "There are going to be good times and bad
times, but it's these times that make memories. If you're going to
go into the field of drama, give it your all."

"Strive to Finish"
This year's seniors took part in sports to com-
pete for a challenge, enjoy the fun, to get into
shape or as an aid to getting into college. Andy
Harvey said, "It makes high school more fun. lf
you're good, you can get recognition from coaches
and from other schools."
For many, sports meant teamwork, learning and
cooperation in order to develop their talents. For
others, the lure of individual glory for individual
efforts and wins called. "Everybody's outside
dream is to make the Olympics," said Debbie Gal-
vin. Gretchen Garnett added, "It takes motivation
to get recognized, and it takes money to go on and
get through school. But, if you like it, it's worth it.
Everybody should do something that they like and
do it well."
And that is what the seniors of 1980 did!
Whether it was team or individual, major or minor
sport, many seniors enjoyed sports and did them

"Take the Challenge"
Academics at Ventura High means different things to dif-
ferent people. Some make their class schedules to fulfill col-
lege requirements, others take their classes just to fill six
periods a day. To some the challenge of gaining knowledge
makes classwork an adventure.
Robyn Dahl said, "Ever since elementary school, my
grades have been really important to me. I have always
assumed I'd go to college, and I knew I'd have to be near the
top of my class to get into a good unversity. I'd say that all the
work has paid off. It's been rough, and at times, I've been
ready to say, 'Forget it!' but now I realize that through it all,
I've learned how to study, which is one ability that we all
will need to know."
Laura Kim stated, "I have always worked for high grades
because it is viewed very highly in my family. Now that I
have to make decisions about my life, I see the importance of
getting good grades. Most colleges focus mainly on your
G.P.A. in determining admission. That is why I think it's very
good to have a high average. Besides, there is a feeling of
accomplishment when I look at my transcript."

Why do V.H.S. students enjoy art? Sherri Kristy says,
"It's the nice feeling that makes people happy after they've
seen our finished work. Where do artists at VHS get their
ideas? "Some from pictures they've seen and others from
their imagination," she said.
Students at V.H.S. work in many different media -
everything from stained glass to leather, pen and ink to air
brush. This imposes different techniques and approaches.
"Drawing with a pencil takes more of your imagination
and ability to express yourself because you have to go into
more detail to attract the observer's eye. In oil paints or
water colors, the details come out with less work." Alicia
Anacker would like to become more professional in her
artwork and has taken additional classes at the college.
"We want people to see what we see, and to feel happy
about it," was the way Kevin Ellison described his artistic

"Have a Good Time"
Student government at Ventura High is a very active
and enthusiastic organization. Its many members have
worked long hours, beginning in the summers, to make the
students' voices heard. This year's leadership brought in
different ideas and tried their best to carry them out.
Senior Class President Eric Dyer had wanted to get into
student government since his sophomore year. "I felt that
V.H.S. lacked enthusiastic leaders, and that I could add
new ideas." Eric worked on the senior homecoming com-
mittee this year and feels it was one of the best so far.
"There was a lot of controversy over the Homecoming
Dance, but over all, I think that the controversy helped. It
was hard at the time, but I have no negative feelings
towards those who disagreed. That is their right. After all,
we're just representing the students. V.H.S. government
has improved over the years, and my advice to the classes
of '81 and '82 is strive to make each year better than the
jeff jackson ran for A.S.B. Vice-President because he
wanted "to keep our extremely vibrant and ambitious
President in her place, and to insure that the needs of the
loud and intelligently radical students are met by the
administration." He added, "We want to give all students,
not just the conservative ones, an equal voice in cabinet.
Many of these joined I.C.F. this year, and with their help, it
could be the most effective club on campus."

lt's traditional for a senior class to give a mate-
rial gift to the school at graduation time, but those
immaterial gifts throughout the years - gifts of
time, effort, and care - help the school be respon-
sive to the wants and needs of students.
Two students who like to see things get done at
V.l-l.S. are Iohn Chenery and Ruth Biederman.
They like getting involved because it gives them
results. Iohn Chenery says, "I like getting involved.
lt gives me a better attitude towards myself and
makes school a lot more interesting,"
Ruth Biederman commented, "lt's good to be
rewarded for the hard work you do, and to repre-
sent people instead of sitting around and letting
someone else do the job." Many seniors of 1980
shared the feelings of Iohn and Ruth, for it was an
active year of the senior class.

What a relief! The ordeal of putting the yearbook together
is finally over. Being editor this year has been rather trying
for me as well as my family, friends, the staff, and Mrs. Curtis
the yearbook advisor. In the beginning of this year we were
dragging our feet and barely made our first two deadlines.
The final three were a real panic situationg particulary the
last one. We tried to take an inside look at V.H.S. this year
and did some different things with page layouts and section
arrangement, which I hope you. the student body, will like.
I was disappointed with the lack of responsibility and
unwillingness to work on some staff members' part, but then
again. I wonder if the leadership end of the staff was pulling
its own all the time. At any rate, I would like to thank every-
one both on and off the staff who worked so hard on the
push to meet the last deadline and throughout the year.
My senior year has been an unforgetable one for me, and I
wouIdn't trade it or my other two years here at V.H.S. for
anything. I guess it's time to say "good-bye school" and
"hello worldg" for most people it's a big step, and a difficult
one at that. I know it will be for me. And finally I'd like to say
good-bye to all my friends, you've made the years here good
ones, I hope we can keep in touch.
P.S. Believe it or not, Mr. Evans. we did it!
