If you should ask her first grade students or cheerleaders how this
woman has influenced their life, the responses would be overwhelming.
She is a counselor, a friend, but most of all, a Christian example to all who
cross her path.
For her love and sincere devotion to the students of Garland Christian,
we dedicate the 1984-85 EXCALIBLIR to Mrs. Holly Boyd Powell.

"ExceIling in Education" was the ad-
ministration's motto for the 1984-85
school year. Emphasis was placed on
excelling in all areas of learning at

excelling, not only academically, but
also spiritually. Dr. John McCartt was
an encouragement to the entire faculty
and staff, and his Godly example was a
blessing to all.

While this is true, the senior year carries many
responsibilities with it.

Seniors must keep up school spirit at all times even
though a season record may be less than promising.
Seniors must display spirit even when the "going gets
rough." Seniors must demonstrate even the spirit of
learning and maturing.
The faculty has invested much of their time and
efforts to make us the kind of people our parents,
society, and most importantly, the Lord can be proud
of. For this, we thank you and we hope we have not let

The Senior class officers worked
hard this year to raise money for their
senior trip and to build school spirit.
The Seniors sold everything from
calendars and jackets to "VaI-a-
grams" and family portraits. They
had bake sales every Friday and they
even sponsored a Mexican dinner.
Two "Fun Days" were held in the
gym with games, craft sales, and the
infamous dunking machine.
The Seniors strived to raise their
funds and reach their goals, and they
were successful in doing just that.
Jim Anderson makes a phone call about a fundraiser.
Clark McAfee waits to make an important an-

The Varsity Basketball team this year was probably the
youngest varsity team to play for G.C.A. It was a rebuilding
season over last year's state championship team. But the
team was diligent and worked hard at building another win-
ning team, which they did. The team ended with a winning
record of 12 wins and 10 losses. s

The philosophy on the Junior Varsity basketball
team is that everyone plays every game. The Junior
Varsity team is a farm system for the Varsity pro-
gram. The coach stresses fundamentals, hustle and

teamwork. And in the end, God is given the glory for it f
everything He allows the team to accomplish.
One of the most exciting and memorable games iii' iit.. u. J g f'
for the season was the final game against a much
talented Dallas Christian team. The Junior Varsity
team pulled out a 73-72 overtime victory with Glenn
Miller leading the way. Glenn had 38 points and 24
rebounds in that final game. G.C.A. looks to this team
to be the school's next state championship team.

After a record of 17-5 set by last year's Junior High
Swordsmen, the 1985 team had a hard act to follow. All
the previous team members had moved on to the Junior
Varsity leaving the new team with very little experience.
After finishing 9-8, a look at the scores showed that six of
those games were won or lost by less than four points fone tii' V iis' 1 f

their 1984-85 season with a game against First
Baptist Academy of Dallas. They were
undefeated in district games, with an 8-0
record, which qualified them to compete in the
TAPS Regional playoffs. The girls won the first
game in the regional playoffs against Glad
Tidings. They lost in the second game of the
playoffs against Fort Worth Nolan High School,
which ended their '84-'85 season.
The girls worked hard under the direction of
Mrs. Yvonne Davis and her assistant, Carla
Weaver. Miss Weaver, a former G.C.A.
graduate, was an asset in practices and helped
the girls with shooting and various plays. The
Varsity girls accomplished much this year and
the school is extremely proud of them.

Last summer was no real vacation for the Varsity
cheerleaders. Their work began immediately after
school in preparation for the upcoming football and
basketball seasons and for cheerleading camp.
The girls headed off to Tennessee Temple
Cheerleading Clnic in June, anxiously awaiting to
compete against stiff competition. The girls worked
hard and by the end of the week, the Varsity
cheerleaders had scored well enough to win the 1st
place trophy and the Spirit Stick. Rae Beth Ellis was
chosen as one of the top ten cheerleaders for that
A lot of the credit goes to their cheerleading spon-
sor, Mrs. Holly Powell, who not only worked with the
girls, but became a close friend as well. Under her
guidance, along with Kristi Hatfield who was the cap-
tain, the cheerleaders have excelled in their sport.

The goal of every Junior Varsity cheerleader is to
move up to the Varsity squad. Being a J.V.
cheerleader is just a stepping stone to being a Varsity
cheerleader. This year's Junior Varsity cheerleaders
started the year with four new cheerleaders. But they
worked hard during the summer and on through the
year to perfect their cheers. Mrs. Shari Smith gave of
her time to help the squad, and Wendy Williamson,
the captain, provided the leadership for her fellow
cheerleaders. Tami Leetch was the co-captain and
was an asset to the squad.

On October 19, 1984, Garland Christian
Academy held their annual Homecoming. Many
alumni came to watch Garland Christian defeat
Parkview Christian from Waco, Texas.
The highlight of the game was the crowning of
our Homecoming Queen at halftime. Becky Klass
was crowned queen by John McCartt, the school's
administrator. Becky's grandfather, Delbert Klass,
was her escort inthe absence of her father.
Becky was one of the four nominees chosen
from the senior class.

This year G.C.A. incorporated fine arts assemblies
into the school schedule. The administration began
these for several reasons. The main reason was to
teach the students an appreciation for some of the
"finer things of life" and to teach them how to re-
spond to performances by others. Assemblies also
allowed students to be involved in the school ac-
tivities and gives them an opportunity to develop
their talents for the Lord.

Great American Day was held October 31, 1984,
and it was a special day for all the elementary
students. The purpose was to honor the many great
Americans from the past. Each elementary student
participated by making a poster with a patriotic
theme. Many students dressed up in costumes por-
traying historic Americans. Awards and ribbons were
presented in each class for the best costumes and

The day that all elementary students look for-

ticipated an afternoon of proving their prowess at
running, kicking a football, throwing a softball and
even jumping rope. Many parents came to watch
their child experience the thrill of victory, or the
agony of defeat. The highlight of field day was the
tug-of-war competition which seemed as though it
would never end. What a fun way to end the year!

On February 4, 1985, Garland Christian Academy
presented its first musical-drama with over 120 high
school students participating. The play, "Raise the Flag,"
was produced and directed by the Academy of Arts and
Dr. Nicky Chavers from Greenville, S.C. The play told the
story of well-known Americans that contributed to the
history of the United States, such as Abraham Lincoln,
George Washington, and Lydia Darragh. This play was a
culmination of a week long seminar consisting of make-up
and lighting classes, and scene rehearsals.
Even though weather conditions caused school to be
cancelled two days, interrupted valuable practice time and
forced the performance date to be changed, the cast per-
formed admirably andthe audience was truly appreciative.

SELNIIQR 'TRIP 0855
After nine months of raising money and working extra jobs, thirty-seven seniors
boarded the bus en route to Florida. After a two day trip, the seniors arrived in sun-
ny Florida with a full week's itinerary of fun and excitement. The seniors toured
Cyprus Gardens, Silver Springs, and spent three days at Disneyvvorld and Epcot
Center. Even with the bus breaking down on the way home, the seniors made the
best of it and spent eight "relaxing" hours entertaining each other.
Although they returned home tired and penniless, the seniors returned with
many lasting memories of their last week together as a class.
Our Kindergarten classes
graduated this spring. The
P.M. classes graduated or
Thursday, May 16th, and the
A.M. classes on Friday, May
