and with over 40 schools taking part in the action, it was a great honor
when Wendy Larsen and Richard Sands won a second place trophy in
the group-serious division. November 15 S245 was earned when a
Teacher-Talent Assembly replaced the worn-out Battle of the Bands.
Our first quarter grades were quite a shock to some and we found the
ninth grade really was harder but Monica Espinoza and Kathy
McFarland were happy. They received straight A's. A trampoline
assembly was held and finally the tradition about ninth graders leaving
first at assemblies began to mean something to us. Then it was
announced Kerin Carmody would serve as 1971 Cougar editor with
Valerie Johnson and Jan Rogers her assistant editors. Beth Homan was
appointed art editor and Mary Kregel was named editor of the Lair.
December 5 Journalism held a car wash to earn money for Cougar
improvements. S91 was raised. The Snowball Frolic took place in the
gym and the Christmas Assembly featured the narration of Jan Rogers
and Lynn Wilkinson. After returning from Christmas vacation, we were
surprised when we sank into the 100 building's new carpeting. January
20 brought the Blue-Gold Basketball Game. Captain Dave Tesoro led
his Blue team to victory over John Powers's Gold team 43-33. Also the
faculty beat the all-stars 39-31 in the Jordan Jamboree held at
Burroughs. The Jordan Jump took place in our own gym and later a
wrestling competition was held for the Boys' League Assembly. The top
wrestlers from our class included Gerald Baumgarten, Bill Chronister,
Scott Munsey, and Dana McGehee. With finals and the Scholarship field
trip to Occidental College and the arboretum, much of our time was
filled but still some of us found time to be in the Student Talent
Assembly. Mitch Vogel narrated and Carla Bertole, Coralyn Cornelli,
Claudia Duringer, Chris Holland, Sharon McGee, Diane Oswalt, Manuel
Padilla, Robin Sandmeyer, and Kristi Wells took part. Elections came
and when tallied, showed Robin Sandmeyer had maintained her office
as ASB president. Other officers elected for the spring semester
included Mary Stevenson, ASB vice-president: Debbie Koffler, ASB sec-
retary: Wendy Larsen, ASB treasurer: Debbie Frey, Girls' League presi-
dent: and Cy Estabrook, Boys' League president. April Yaphe was
chosen ninth grade president over the other finalist, Lois Giles. January
29 marked the end of the first semester and Shannon Donahue, Kathy
McFarland, and Jan Rogers got straight A's.
As second semester arrived, it was found that Honor Roll was
the largest in Jordan's history and 92 ninth graders found a position
there for a B average or better. This represented 28 per cent of our
class. Scholarship elected Amy Hiatt, president: Monica Espinoza,
vice-president, Nancy Mclntosh, secretary: and Scott Munsey, ninth
grade representative, to their executive council. Beth Homan gained the
title of SAC president with Christal Kyriacou as vice-president and
Linda Melloff secretary. Lynn Wilkinson was announced as the new JSS
president. A hugh shock jolted us awake February 9. The long-awaited
California earthquake struck, wreaking havoc throughout the area. Our
school was not damaged, fortunately, but everyone was sure nervous
for a long time. After this shakey experience, we returned our interests
to school. February 11 in Social Studies classes we voted on the ninth
gade field trip to be taken June 2. The Los Angeles County Zoo was
over-whelmingly chosen over a Pickwick swim and the Universal Studio
Tours. On that same day a serious misunderstanding occurred when
nominations for the Who's Who in the Cougar were released. It took a
while to work out the problems but voting was finally scheduled for
March 10 and 17. February 18 the Patriotic Assembly was presented.
Tom Given narrated as members of the Drama Department performed
"Spoon River Anthology". A week later at the Awards Asembly,
Shannon Donahue and Robin Sandmeyer received Cougar awards for
425 points,or more. Kay Beeley, Carla Bertole, Phil Freno, Joyce
Jeckewicz, Cindy Rouse, and Mary Stevenson received Starr awards and
33 other ninth graders got "J" awards. The Experience. That's what it
was when a new club was formed. A variation on an art club, students
were given a chance to relate to their environment. After much debate,
gum chewing finally became a reality on a trial basis for ten weeks. Lois
Giles was chosen ninth grade sports queen and was at the Knights'
Track Meet March 24 to present awards to winners in the A Division.
Boys who placed first from our class included AI Brick, Danny
Bronson, Dave Carbaugh, Mike Funk, Jerry Howell, Prmton Lewis,
Dana McGehee, Wayne Milazzo, and Sherman Wong. In the All-City
Track Meet three days later Jordan placed last but Danny Bronson,
Dave Carbaugh, Wayne Milazzo, and Sherman Wong did bring us honor
by winning first place ribbons. April 2 saw the third quarter report
rds and Kathy McFarland did it again by getting straight A's. Then
Bob Ferdon, Mike Funk, Warren Galloway, Jill Kohut, Diane Lawler,
Preston Lewis, Sheila Menzies, Tom Moriarty, Dale Tobey, and April
Yaphe captured ribbons at the Junior Olympics. Kerin Carmody was
elected ninth grade representative of Scholarship Socity after Scott
Munsey moved. April 24 and 25 the PTA Variety Show "Everything Is
Beautifulzz was held and Robin Sandmeyer, Manuel Padilla, and Mitch
Vogel took part. Frances Holzer was named assistant editor of the Lair
and "Hamlet" was performed at the Shakespeare Festival. The cast
included Coralyn Cormelli, Cy Estabrook, Larry Murphy, Kristi Wells,
and Pat Ramsey, who also served at director. Just after Open House the
girls re-captured the paper drive trophy and then suddenly lollipops and
stuffed animals at school seemed quite normal when the yearly activity
day was held following a Jack and Jill theme. April Yaphe was a winner
in the bubble-blowing contest and Bob Allen proved victorious in the
tricycle race. Wendy Larsen, Joe Libby, and Nancy Perez displayed
their dramatic talents May 7 in "David and Lisa". Other ninth grade
cast members included Mike Adler, Ann Bernstein, Jack Codron,
Coralyn Cornelli, Tom Given, Sharon McGee, Don Mooney, Larry
Murphy, Jan Rogers, Richard Sands, Linda Stark, and Wendy Larsen,
who also served at assistant director. The Mother-Daughter, Father-Son
Nights took place and then May 17 Scholarship took its field trip to the
Carbillo Beach Tidepools to see how ocean life was being affected by
pollution. This tied in with their semester proiect on ecology which
included plans for an ecology week at Jordan. Following a
newly-inagurated iunior high sports night, the ninth grade trip to the
zoo, the Blue-Gold Softball Game, and the Faculty-Nine Game, the
ninth grade party was held with a patriotic theme. At the Awards
Assembly earlier that week many members of our class again won
school awards. Nith grade sportsmanship awards were presented to
John Powers and Lenny McCarty. The David Starr Jordan Scholarship
award went to Shannon Donahue and Curtis Ihle for the highest grade
average in our class. Nominations had been made earlier in English
classes for the coveted American Legion award. For the boys it went to
Cy Estabrook over nominees AI Brick, Mike Funk, Brower Foster,
Curtis Ihle, Dana McGehee, Don Nadon, and Bill Southworth. Topping
nominees Karen Carmody, Shannon Donahue, Debbie Frey, Debbie
Koffler, Kathy McFarland, Mary Stevenson, and Karen Wood, Robin
Sandmyer was the winner for the girls.
June 14 we received our Cougars, a day earlier than the
seventh and eighth graders. lt came as quite a shock to everyone that
one of our most outstanding class members, Robin Sandmeyer, had
been over-looked in the Who's Who, quite an over-sight on our part.
Then came June 16 and leaving at 3:00 with mixed emotions, we
walked hom to prepare for the next day when we returned for the final
time With 346 of us graduating, two promotional exercises were
necessary. Speakers chosen from English classes included Lisa Baker,
Julie Ban, Tom Given, Donna Hansen, Pam Harwood, Amy Hiatt, Jane
Kirby, Sharon McGee, Debi Reed, Sandy Roseman, Bill Southworht,
and Karen Wood. Cy Estabrook and April Yaphe read the roll call and
then it was all over.
When we have a spare moment, many of us will come
back to visit. But it won't ever be the same because never again will we
actually be a part of Jordan Junior High. These three years have been
long in some ways and short in others. The membories and experiences
of school can never be matched and looking back in the years that lie
ahead, we'lI all realize that we owe to the people of this school and how
we profited under their guidance.
