Be- ing able to conquer the massive halls, finding classes, getting to know fellow students, were all a part of Miami ' s first year. 1972— MIAMI ' S YEAR OF FIRSTS Dave Garrett named the yearbook. Linda McMahon and Lora Friedrich named the newspaper UNDER THESE GUIDING HANDS hi p. Mr. Kermit Leininger. Principal Mr. Kermit Leininger, Miami Junior High School Prin- cipal, had to be tour persons at once-organizer, super- visor, ambassador to the public, and administrator. With a bachelor ' s degree from Manchester College and a master ' s degree in education from Indiana University, he is certainly well-equipped for his tough job! Planning programs and schedules, seeing that all plans were carried out successfully, checking classes, ironing out difficulties, talking with parents, directing all activities and overseeing all school records left Mr. Leininger only a few spare moments. Dr. Glenn F. Mulligan, Assistant Principal, received his bachelor ' s degree from Manchester College. In addition to a master ' s degree, he also earned a Doctorate in Education degree from Indiana University. Dr. Mulligan is the able assistant to Mr. Leininger in helping him to carry out the endless tasks of adminis- tering the total school program. OUR ACADEMIC DAYS WERE PLANNED Miss Beverlv Moore. Guidance Counselor Miss Beverly Moore earned a B.S. degree and an M.A. degree from Ball State University. Mr. James R. Davis has his B.S. degree from Ohio State University, and his M.S. degree from St. Francis College. When students needed a friend or an advisor, they hustled off to the main office where Miss Moore and Mr. Davis were always eager to help anyone who stepped inside the door. Mr. James R. Davis. Guidance Counselor SOME PROCESSED PAPERS AND BILLS Mrs. BurniceToor, Secretary The secretaries form one of the most important cogs in the office mechanism of the school system. Keeping accounts of the money that rolled in and out of the office, filing records for the school and performing various stenographic duties were the women in the office of the Principal 1 rs Joan Sterling. Secretary OTHERS PROVIDED PILLS AND SKILLS Mr. John A. Steiner, Psychometrist " Do you have a headache or feel ill after an exam? If so, drop in the clinic where you will find just the right pills for your ills. " Many students followed this advice and found Mrs. Esther Warner eager to help. Mr. John A. Steiner works with students on an individual basis in order to help them utilize their intellectual potential, to make them more aware of their strengths and weaknesses, and how to make the best use of this knowledge. " Too many cooks spoil the broth. " This was not true in our cafeteria. Mrs. Anna Gray and her staff supplied delectable food for a hungry army and kept the caf- eteria clean, pleasant, and well-organized.
