JANUARY 14, 1991
HA HA, WE BEAT YOU!
On the night of January 14th, 1991, another win was recorded into the history of GCHS.
Athletes of the varsity club challenged the faculty to a basketball game. D.F. Miller, sponsor
of the club, was the students' coach and Tom Wyrostek coached the teachers.
The competition was intense and at the end of the first half the score was close. The half time
show was entertaining as the cheerleaders performed to pep up the crowd and inspire the
players. The score remained close throughout the game, but, the students won beating the
teachers by a score of 48-44.
Approximately $200.00 was raised from ticket sales, personal and corporate donations.
Proceeds were used to purchase athletic equipment.
Although the teachers lost, they were good sports and everyone had a good time. Allen
Lobdell contributed it to the fact that, 'The initial velocity vector that I gave to the sphere was
either at the wrong angle or started at the wrong special coordinates, probably do to the fact
that my weight force isn't what it used to be."
Debbie Larsen "... found out how out of shape I've gotten in 20 years. I was tired during the
warm-up before the game even started! Next year I hope they play volleyball-that's my
game." Linda Green says "Next year the women's faculty will insist that the men's faculty team
practice more. They looked a little rusty to us,"
Jason Scrum commented, "It was a lot of fun to go out and show up the faculty and prove
that we can always win." Brad O'Neill thought "It was great being able to be a cheerleader
and lead cheers for our students instead of playing and being cheered for." Dan Brazee said,
"It was a lot of fun to show up the faculty in basketball. I should have dunked it."

THE GATEWAY ARCH
8 THE GATEWAY ARCH
It's 630 feet tall and 630 feet wide. Ifs the
gateway to the west. It's the symbol of St. Louis.
It's 25 years old. It's the Gateway Arch.
Twenty-five years after its completion, the
Gateway Arch seems as though it has been in
our lives forever. The final 142nd piece was put
into place on October 28, 1965 and the new
symbol for the city of St. Louis was completed.
Not everything during its construction came
easy-even to the final day. It was a Thursday,
October 28, 1965 and the sun was shinning on
the almost completed Arch. Since heat expands
steel, the temperature became a problem. The
sun's warmth was stretching the south leg, warp-
ing it out of alignment with the north leg.
The fire department was called and they dis-
patched high-pressure pumpers to splash cool-
ing water along the length of the south leg. Hours
later, the final triangular section was inserted
and the St. Louis monument finally took the
shape of a completed arch.
It took tons of steel, concrete, and thousands
of man hours to finalize this most-impressive
project. The dollar cost of the arch itself was
approximately $12,000,000. The landscaping,
museum, parking lot and other improvements
put the total above $35 million.
The Arch weighs 4,1 19 tons in steel and 12,127
tons in concrete. The number of steps in the
stainA/ays in each leg is 1,076. Tonnage of stain-
less steel in the Arch's exterior is 886.
On a good clear day, a visitor to the top of the
arch can expect to see 30 miles in either the east
or west directions. The number of five-passenger
capsules that carry visitors atop the Arch is 16;
and as of October 1990 when the Arch cele-
brated its 25th birthday, the number of visitors to
reach the top totalled 20,500.00.
In only 25 years, the Gateway Arch has truly
come to symbolize St. Louis to the rest of the
United States and the world. In only 25 years, its
silver anniversary, the Gateway Arch has re-
flected back honor and profit to the city and its
people. In only 25 years, this monument which
was once a dream has become one of the
proudest achievements in modern history.
And the people of St. Louis and the surround-
ing cities are proud to say, "it belongs to us."

I LOVE ALL ■ SERVE ALL
One of the most popular tee-shirts and sweatshirts worn, by Granite City students have Hard
Rock Cate written on the front. There isn't a day that does by — warm or cold — when you
don't see one of these shirts proudly worn by the students.
There are Hard Rock Cafe's all over the world. Some are better than others — some are
louder than others. The original Hard Rock Cate was created June 14, 1971, in London by Isaac
Tigrett of Jackson, Tennessee. He, along with his partners, felt that European people should be
able to sample the best of American cooking — the best down-home, good meals, at
Now there are Cafes in London, New York, Stockholm, Dallas, Tokyo, and Criando. The Sister
Company has restaurants in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, Boston, Washington D.C.,
Reykjavic, Honolulu, San Diego, Sydney, and Las Vegas.
These restaurants represent what People Magazine called "The Smithsonian of Rock 'n Roll."
They have one of the largest collections of authentic rock musical memorabilia that rotates
; ’ among the restaurants in the different cities.
Cne of the newest cafes is the one located in Criando, Florida. It is in the shape of a large
. guitar and the largest cafe built so far. If you decide to eat on the spacious seating area
\ outside, you could eat and look at the Bates house from the movie "Psycho" located on the
Viniversal Studio grounds.
Along with good food served in a gracious way, the Hard Rock Cafe strives to offer a simple
rrwl- message with each meal. This message is read and known by all who patronize the restaurant.
Their Motto: Love All — Serve All.

METALLICA - ELVIS - JERRY LEE - MADONNA - VANILLA ICE
The lip sync raised $1500. for Christmas baskets. This evening of live entertain-
ment was sponsored by the GCHS student council and was held on December
Many students took advantage of the opportunity to perform on stage in front
of 600 -h students, parents, faculty, and friends. The music ranged from heavy
metal to Bob Dylan folk to Elvis Presley. There were 19 acts performing and
contributing to the festivities of the evening.
Prizes were given for first, second, and third place. Scrambled Eggs took the
honor of being chosen as Number 1. Participants in the group were Mike
Delgado, Scott Anderton, Gary Horley, Don Goss, and Mike Allen. Second place
went to Morgan Mance, Chris Cuvar, and Brandie Myers who performed a
Madonna song and routine. Third place was Jerry Lee Lewis' song, "Great Balls
of Fire" performed by Chuck Noud.
It was a fun-filled evening enjoyed by the students on stage and the people
in the audience. Besides having a great time performing, the money raised was
used for a great cause. See you next year.

GOLF 98, AMY 1 222, I'M GROS 2, BADD Z 2, 2 RICHS. and SO SHEK I are just a few
of the personalized car plates students have chosen for themselves. Do to
finances, most students cannot select the car of their choice. So, they do the next
best thing and get a license piate that refiected their personalities.
Other plates in the parking lot are SOCR 14, NIKKI T 6, ALI 31, STAO 73, PTRPN
6, JNSCAR 2, KATRNA 3, NEMO 12, and MIKE 481. Some are easy to figure out and
some need a little more thought. PTRPN is really Peter Pan, GLKPER is goalkeeper,
and, of course, SOCR is soccer. TINA belongs to Tina McCallie, RG CAM is realiy
Robin Grogen, and RiCHEY's owner is Travis Richey.
Some of the reasons students own these plates include, "it's me," "I thought it
wouid be a neat thing to do." "No other person will have it," "I like my name and
my car," "It's so unique," and "it says something about me."
These plates are fun to have and read. They are a popular addition to many
of the students cars. They are an extension of the owner's personality.

WE ARE SO BEAUTIFUL
May 11, 1990, was a very special night for the senior girls of the class of 1990 and the 1990
May Carousel Queen DeAnna Kopsky.
Each girl, dressed beautifully in her formal, walked down the aisle as their name was
announced. Family and friends admired the lovely girls and took pictures as they walked by.
This was the beginning of a very special evening for the graduating senior girls.
The Master of Ceremonies, Homecoming King Darryn Yates, welcomed all who were
present and seated the girls. Tammi Wickham, the retiring queen, was seated in her throne,
which was soon going to be taken over by the new queen. The court consisted of Jennifer
Cavaness, Stepahnie Cook, Kelly Kessler, Gina Lenzi, Janet Ridlen, and Laura Zeisset. The
1990 May Carousel Queen DeAnna Kopsky was escorted to her throne by Matthrew Cook.
The entertainment of the evening began with the Flag Squad's performance to “We've
Got a Lot of Technique", "Chorus Line" by the PomPon Squad, and the Rifle Squad with
“Opposites Attract". The cheerleaders performed to “Listen For the Lighf', and Darla
Mayhall concluded with a baton routine. Each performance will be long remembered by
the senior girls.
After the farewell performances by the auxiliaries and cheerleaders, the traditional senior
dance was performed to the song “Could I Have This Dance?" by the chosen senior couples.
Senior girls then performed the May Pole Dance, which symbolizes the birth of spring. The
prom theme, “Wonderful Tonight", was sung by Chris Richeson. This special evening was
concluded with the candlelight ceremony, and the singing of “I'll See You Again".
This is the final ceremony that these girls will be together as part of the Granite City Senior
High School. It will always be a very special memory for the 1990 senior girls.

GOOD JOB ■ WELL DONE
"Cheaper by the Dozen" was the 1990 Homecoming play. It was presented on October 10
Each person who participated in the play spent many hours working after school. Lines were
read over and over until perfection was achieved.
The stagecraft students, under the direction of Beverley Scroggins, created the appropriate
background and other props to make the play colorful and unique. They spent many demand-
ing hours during class and after school preparing for this play.
Assisting Mrs. Scroggins were Morgan Mance, Sarah Patton, and Erin Rotter. Props were
handled by Shelle Goodman and Jennifer Scheerer. Lights were done by Kevin Gross. Sound was
done by Nathan Branding. The spotlight was handled by Brad La Rose, and set Instructions were

From toga day to the semi-formal dance. Homecoming
week October 9-13, 1990, was a great success and a whole
lot of fun. This year's theme was "Blast the Billikens". Monday
was Columbus Day, so the week officially began on Tues-
day. The first day was 70's dress up day and the parade
leading to the bonfire. But because of the rainy weather,
the parade was postponed to Friday afternoon, and the
bonfire was cancelled. Wednesday was toga/nerd day and
Thursday was opposite day. The play "Cheaper by the
Dozen" and the coronation was also held those evenings.
Leah Schuman and Bryan McKechan were crowned king
and queen. Friday was school color day with the entire
school body dressing in red and black. The pep rally and
parade lifted school spirits for the upcoming football game.
The winners of the sexy legs contest, Amy Isom and Mike

MRS. COOK'S ROUND TABLE
Mrs. Helen Cook's "favorite hour of the day" is her 3rd hour
Senior Honors English class. This course is offered to seniors as
an alternative to senior composition.
The Senior Honors English class consists of reading iiterature
in depth, writing essays, and class discussion. In some cases,
the students gather their chairs in a circle and openly ex-
press the piece of literature and what it signifies to them.
Mrs. Cook enjoys the class "because it's a student-partici-
pation course and students participate, not teacher only."
Brian Henry likes the "round-table symposium rather than
listening to a teacher lecture all hour. This interaction makes
the class more enjoyable." Amber Rogers likes "having a
class that I can express myself in and I also enjoy the chal-

DANCING THE HOUR AWAY
Seniors have various activities during their senior year which
they cherish. One of these is the senior dance program offered to
them through the P.E. department. It always ends up to be a
fun-time for everyone involved.
The first day is usually the worst. It's the time when everyone
selects a 'partner.' Many times friends end up with friends, but
occasionally the seniors dance with partners they do not even
know. It gives them a good opportunity to become acquainted
with both new dances and new students.
Some of the dances they learn are the fox trot, waltz, and the
cha cha. Every Friday, the students get the pleasure of square
Even though there were some 'jitters' the first day of class, the
rest of the days were full of fun and excitement. It was a class the
seniors will never regret or forget.

A VERY HOT SPOT
It was the hot spot between classes, before class, and after
school. It was the place where seniors gathered during those
seven frantic minutes between their next class.
Lockers often created problems that seniors did not need.
There were times fingers got caught in the locker, heods got
bumped, and occasionally the combination would not work
properly. Trying to expiain these situations to impatient teachers
as they got to ciass iate was not always easy.
Lockers were sometimes cluttered too. There could be as
many as three or four seniors using the same locker. This caused
a big book jam up. If parents thought those teenagers cluttered
their rooms at home, they should have seen their high school
"At times it was trying because of confusion and mixing up of
books, but those were the best times in my senior year," said
Lockers often sported decorations and strange odors. Some-
times lunches were forgotten and the only way they got found
was by the strange smell coming out of the wall. Pictures of
friends, heart throbs, and rock singers were often found adorn-
ing the walls of these little homes away from home.
"When you're having a hard day, seeing pleasant faces and
colors in your locker helps motivate you
through the day," said Shawn Oliver.
Many times a mirror was found in the locker too. This was to
make sure everything was always in place . . . hair, make-up,
lipstick, etc. Note pads, erasable boards for messages, and
bulletin boards were also found there for the important mes-
"I feel that a mirror is very convenient because some days
when you're having a bad day, you can look in a mirror and try
to make yourself smile and see a reflection of a happy face,"
said Becky Rice.
And, of course, no locker could be complete without cologne,
comb, brush, and/or hairspray for quick touchups and primping.
"Ifs a good thing to have hairspray in your locker. After P.E., it
helps to improve your looks for impressing people," states Beth
Finally, sometime during the semester there was locker clean-
out. This was the time to throw away all the trash, the excess, the
not needed junk. No senior really had time to clean out the
locker during the school year. There were more important items
to attend to. But now the day was here. Time was taken out of
homeroom and everyone was out in the halls cleaning, finding,
and throwing. Only then could a senior bring himself to go
through all the mess and maybe even throw some of it away . . .

I LOVE YOU
They're everywhere. Wherever you
look, anywhere you go, you see them.
Those eye-catching couples who don't
seem to have a care in the world (except
for each other, of course.)
During our high school years, we learn
a great deal (some of us more than
others). Besides the books, and the term
papers, and the hours of homework, we
learn about people and relationships.
We learn about friendship and we learn
about love. We learn the joys of having a
special companion — someone with
whom to share our secrets and dreams,
someone who won't laugh at us if we
seem idealistic, someone who will stick
by us and love us for who we are, not who
they want us to be.
But, unfortunately, with love there
comes heartaches. There's the heart-
ache of 'breaking up', and/or seeing
your 'someone' talking to someone else.
This can be tough. And, it usually hap-
pens to all of us while in high school. But,
if we wait long enough, another special
someone will come along and replace
the first special someone, (not take the
place of — just replace)
In conclusion, we leave you with a few
wise words. If you see those couples lean-
ing against the wall in the hall or gath-
ered around some lockers, ignoring ev-
eryone else except each other, leave
them alone. They won't look at you or
answer you, because they only have
eyes for each other.
1. Kelly Green and Chris Harrison are always able to beat the 'blahs'.
DO YOU HAVE THE BLAHS?
Daily routines can become 'routine.' What can
we do about this? is there a way to turn routine
situations into different experiences? Sure there is.
Students try to 'beat the biahs' all the time. Even
though most of their ciasses are exciting and full
of wonder challenges, sometimes fidgeting oc-
curs. So, to conquer the doldrums, they begin
doing strange and peculiar things. They aiways
iook for new ways to possibiy overcome boredom.
We have a few suggestions and some seniors
added to our coliection of ideas. Try something
different in the morning before you come to
schooi. How about brushing each tooth in a differ-
ent way and using a variety of toothpastes. That'il
start you out in a different stroke. Then count the
steps it takes to get to your car or bus from your
front door. Compiiment the bus driver and talk to
some of the students on your bus. Wake everybody
up . . get things moving.
When you sit in ciass, count the number of dots
on the tile above your head, think about the
cafeteria and aii the fun you are going to have
with your friends eating your lunches, say 'hi' to
someone you don't know and see if they answer,
sing in the haliway walking to class, be nice to your
teachers and volunteer in ciass, and see what's
stuck to the bottom of your desk. That shouid do it
for a whiie.
Then when schooi is aimost over, reaily iisten to
the 3:05 announcements, skip to your car or bus,
shake hands with someone you don't know, and
smile at the afternoon bus driver.
Some students, however don't get the biahs.
Nothing bores them and they find everything
fuifilling and exciting. That's wonderful. But some
students get a little blah at times. These 'blahs' are
not hard to beat if you have a iittle imagination
and use it.

GRADE 1 TO GRADE 12
It all began with kindergarten. Those first years
of school seemed to last forever. We were the
younger ones, looking up to all those 'big high
school kids.' Look at us now. We're those kids.
Those early years crept by — second grade,
eighth grade — now here we are seniors at last
ready to make history during our last year here at
If we could do it all over again, would we? And
would we make any changes? Here are some
comments by fellow classmates.
Jason Leonard says, "I would stay on the heat
schedule all year long." Mark Cotter thinks "a
walkway should be built between the main build-
ing and Coolidge." Jason Hart says we should go
back to "the open campus."
Other comments include, "get tougher on the
drug crackdowns," "plant some trees," "bigger
parking lot," "bring the smoking area back
again," "no smoking at all in school," and "the
cafeteria is better than I thought."
Graduation was once a dream, unattainable
and unbelievable, but never forgotten. Now in our
last year of school, graduation is almost here.
It's difficult to believe that this is our last year.
Our last year to share lockers, meet with our
friends before school, share time with our favorite
teachers, and go to school on Saturday morning.
More important, it is the last year to make the
grades and the lasting friendships that will give us
that boost into a secure and successful future.
Hold on to the memories, from the first day of
school to the last moment in high school. Hold on
— the diploma Is now almost ours.

REASON - ALIBI - EXCUSE
In everyone's life, there comes a time when you have to use
an excuse to get yourself out of a sticky situation. Whether it's
getting out of that "little lie you told' or something you forgot
to do, everyone has used an alibi.
Sometimes when you are out having a good time and you
miss your curfew by an hour or so, you can come up with some
pretty good ones. And sometimes your parents believe you.
Another situation where you often use an excuse for is when
you forgot to do something you were definitely supposed to
do. Examples of these situations might be (1] cleaning your
room, (2) washing clothes, (3) wash the dishes, or (4) take out
John Bringer simply says, "I forgot." Sarah Patton says that
her room is 'her room' and "nobody goes up there anyway."
Stan Gregory thinks that his room "will only get dirty again
anyway," and Kristi Holsinger simply stated, "earthquake."
No matter how perfect you think you are, you'll always find
yourself in a situation where a good alibi is necessary. An
excuse, aiibi, or good reason might get you out of trouble, but
it may also get you in even more trouble.

when times are good. No matter what, she will be by your
Who is the one person who looks like you or some
mistake as your sister? It is your mother. She has been with
you from the beginning to help mold you into an inde-
pendent adult and to prepare you for all the unpredict-
able situations that may occur in the rest of your life. She
was there when you said "MA MA" for the first time, and
when you went on your first date. She will also be there on
your graduation day and eventually on your wedding
This woman you refer to as your mom will be there for
you, and you for her. Some girls may try to model their lives
after their mothers. You will never find the same bonding
between any two other people as you will between a
mother and her daughter. She is your mother, but she is
also your best friend.

OUR WINTER WONDERLAND
Looking out your window you see the snowflakes failing decorating
the trees and streets making a beautiful scene. For some of us this is a
"Winter Wonderland" to go sliding, build a snowman, or have a
snowball fight at home.
For others, it causes problems getting from piace to place. If you
drive, you risk the chance of your car not starting, getting stuck in the
snow, or even sliding on the ice. These dangerous situations leave
many people stuck at home with nothing to do. Sometimes, if the
conditions are serious enough, students will awake to hear school has
been canceled for the day. They can take this opportunity to sleep a
little longer and then do some school homework.
Different people have different feelings about the snow. “I like the
snow because I iike to go sledding," comments Julie Fernandez. On the
other hand, some don't like the dangerous situations that the snow
causes. "I don't like the snow because my car got stuck in the school
parking lot," comments Jennifer Harris.
If If v\/ere possibie for snow to fall only in certain parts of town or only
on certain individual's cars, all of us in the yearbook staff agree that
snow should only fall on William Ohiendorf and Stanley Wojcik. They're
tough enough to handle any situation . . just ask them.

Being an athlete is not all fun and games. Participation in
extracurricular activities requires discipline, training, and
practice time. With all the pressure and the juggling of time,
is it all worth it? Most of the athletes at GCHS say 'yes.'
John Billick says "if you train hard, your abilities in your sport
will increase. You will look back and thank yourself for the
hard work you did to get prepared as you did."
The tiring physical rituals sometimes seem monotonous,
but it's beneficial and the final act of competition makes it
all worth it.
"All the hard work and practices paid off because Hollie
and I qualified for state tennis," says Addie Lenzi.
Playing the game is the goal of all practices, hard work,
and time spent away from your friends. Winning the games
is even better.

DO YOU REMEMBER?
Do you remember the night before your first day of high
school? You probably laid awake in bed for hours wondering
if you were really ready for the big day ahead of you. You had
spent the whole summer shopping to just the "right outfit", got
a new haircut, and bought all new school supplies, Freshman
orientation was attended where the first encounter of the
principal took place. Mr. Painter explained the basic rules of
the high school and answered any questions. Then you were
on your own to face the hollowed halls to find all the class-
rooms. That seemed easy until about 2000 additional students
were jammed into the halls with you.
That seem so long ago, and the time has really flown by. The
small chore of finding your third hour class seems rather minor
to the now bigger chore of choosing a college to attend.
You have made some of the best friends a person could
ever ask for. You have went out on weekends with them,
shared your deepest and darkest secrets, and walked
through the halls with them. There will always be a special
place for these special friends in each person's heart.
Each senior has made it through ali the good times and bad
in high school. All the great memories definitely outweigh the
pop quizzes and finals. As it has been said many times, high
school is absolutely the fastest four years of a student's life.

One of the most misused hours in the day is the study
haii. It's the time you have to yourself. This is the time
you are able to catch up on all your work, do your
homework, or finish your assignments. But do you?
In this hour, many tasks should be accomplished.
Unfortunately, many students don't take advantage of
this time. They write notes, doodle, chew on their pencil
and erasers, think about their date for the evening, etc,
Matt Loftus says, "i find excuses to get out of my study
hall every day. I surprise myself sometimes with all the
clever ideas i come up with." “Each day is a new
adventure to find ways to waste as much time in there
as possible," adds Chris Steiner.
By using this time wisely, many students can avoid
hours of homework and not have to carry all those
heavy books home. The time at home could be used
for more significant and important things.
With ail this free time, you can now watch television
at your ieisure, rent a movie, have some 'quality time'
with your sister or brother, talk to your parents, and
even do some chores around the house.

IN THE HALLS . . OFF THE WALLS
"Watch it." "Could you please move." "Get out of my way." "Well,
It's not at all unusual to hear these familiar phrases as one tries to push
and shove his way through the halls between classes. In these seven-
minute jam-packed, hallways, one struggles to find a passageway leading
to the classroom barely visible in the distance.
You move a little further down the hall and you hear, "Get moving."
"Give me a break and stop crawling." Or how about "Let's go. Let's go.
Let's go." Do you know how far it is from the English section of the building
to the drafting classes? Or how about from the science lab to the high
school section of Coolidge?
There's no time to stop and chat. Barely time to stop by your locker. And
this is only if your locker just happens to be on the way to class. If you have
to direct yourself to another direction to get locker books and then expect
to get to class on time, forget it. Especially if you stop to talk or go to the

over to pick up the pen you dropped unless you want your fingers to get /
squashed by the three dozen students behind you trying to get to their

The trick is to get out of your room as soon as you are excused by your
teacher. Even though you would like to run out of ciass when you hear the
bell, you know it's wise to wait for your teacher's lovely voice say to you.
"You may leave now "
Knowing you have to wait, and you do, ifs as though the beil is saying

SLEEPY TIME PEOPLE
Red eyes, dragging feet, and sweatpants are very commonly
seen around school on Mondays. Students move through the
halls in only one speed-SLOW. Monday is the day when students
try to get themselves back when falling apart over the weekend.
It's a day of recoopertaion.
If any student is asked when the most horrible time of the week
for a teacher to plan a test or a pop quiz, the answer would
have to be Monday. Over the weekend, students put a tempo-
rary halt on their thinking module. With the weekend flying so
fast, it's hard for the brain to get back in gear. That is what
Mondays are for.
It is also quite common for students to be caught cat napping
in their study halls. There seems to be neverending contagious
yawn lingering throughout the hall. Students seem to wander
from class to class in a zombie like daze.
But, as always there is an exception to every rule. There are
those students who are very much awake from the excitement
from the past weekend. They are spreading the word about all
the great times they had, and even the new plan of ideas for the
approaching weekend. Even though the majority of Mondays
have been spent dozing off somewhere, they will always be one
of those memorable days remembered by all.
AROUND THE WORLD
One of the main problems of the world that contributes to
many others is that people do not understand the ways of life
of other people. This has led to misunderstanding, hatred, and
war amongst people of the world. One of the things our school
and the Rotarians are doing to help solve this problem is to
encourage people to go spend a year in a foreign country.
Three of such people have spent the school year 1990/91 with
us. They are VIodimir Milosevic, Christine Roitzsch, and Luise
VIodimir is from Yugoslavia, Christine is from Germany and
Luise is from Denmark. Three Granite City families have been
kind enough to provide room and board for these students, to
enable them to experience our school system, our way of life,
and discover that we basically have the same feelings and
hopes of all people.
Hopefully these people will someday be in positions of
power and their experience with us, and we hope that their
experience with us has been a good one and we wish them
well as they return to their homeland.

After the Christmas holidays everyone looks forv\/ard to the
next big vacation time . . . spring break. It is usually in the middle
of the semester and most of the time at the end of March or in
This is the time when most students relax and take a break
from the everyday school life. Some students take vacations on
the beach, go skiing, or just stay home and relax.
Some went where the weather was warm. These students
came home with a good tan and a relaxed attitude.
Brad O'Neil says, “I went to Mexico to spend my spring break."
Some student council members went to Walt Disney World and
celebrated Mickey Mouse's birthday with him.
Others just stayed home and had just as good of time
watching television, going to the movies, shopping, and just
sitting around doing nothing.
Chris Stroder says that "spring break is a party no matter
where your at."
Whatever you did for your spring break vacation, you eventu-
ally had to come back to school and begin the routine once
again. However, now you can sit back and begin counting the
days until your next vacation . . . summer vacation.

SENIORS SEEK HIGHER DEGREES
Many of the 1991 graduates plan to attend college. Some
will relocate within the state and others wiii choose schools
in different states. Probably one of the most popular out-of-
state schools is the University of Missouri/Columbia. Its excel-
lent academic program coupled with the possibilities for
social activity was appealing to many of the GCHS seniors.
Local colleges and junior colleges, such as Washington
University, St. Louis University, Belleville Area College, South-
ern Illinois University/Edwardsville and Carbondale,
Meramac, Florissant Valley, Lindenwood, and University of
Missouri/Rolla and St. Louis were also popular choices
among the senior also.
Some seniors, however, decided to go to 'trade' schools
such as Sanford-Brown Business College. Ranken, I.T.T., St.
Louis Tech., and Lincoln Tech. These schools offered some-
thing to a select number of seniors that was not available
in a traditional college curriculum.
Regardless what specific plans each senior made, all
were somewhat apprehensive about the future and the
challenges it would bring. They were nervous about it since
they never really knew what was going to happen.
They did know, however, they would miss their friends and
many of their close acquaintances. They also knew that
college was a chance to meet new friends.

LOVING IT UP
Each student at G.C.H.S. looks forward to at least one of their classes
every day; and there are many different reasons that this certain class
makes their day worthwhile. Weather it's the intriguing curriculum, the
interesting teacher, or the gorgeous person who sits next to you, there
is something that makes one class more enjoyable than all of the rest.
For the first three years of high school, students are required to take
a variety of mandatory courses in subjects such as math, science,
English, and history. But now, as a senior, they are finally able to choose
some electives that appeal to their own personal interests. Because of
this, seniors seem to enjoy their schedules more than anyone else.
Many seniors, like Dan Terrell and Pam Mansfield, choose to take
follow-up courses such as Biology III. and IV. and college algebra to
continue their education in their favorite classes. Dan says, "I am
furthering my biology education because I believe everyone should
learn more about themselves and other things that they deal with in
every day life." However, the most popular choices made by seniors on
registration day seem to be less mind-boggeling classes such as study
hall and office worker. Carrie Owen, a frequent hall roamer, said, “I took
office because I like to walk around all hour and not do anything like in
a real class."
But whatever classes they take, most will agree that they're senior
year is the most exciting and productive of their high school years.

A FAMOUS ADDITION
There is an addition to the Granite City High School campus. The
project was started in 1989 and is estimated to take another year to
The new addition is the Hall of Fame building. This building is divided
by a walkway and has a concession stand, ticket booth, an utility room,
two sets of restrooms, and a large display area. The entire building is
approximately 5600 square feet.
The building trades class layed and poured the foundation walls and
floor for the building. Work, such as wiring, was done by the vocational
department and the heating and air was provided by the heating and
air conditioning class. The blue prints were drawn up by Brad Peterson,
a former GCHS student, with the help of Mr. Jerry Ethridge.
Ed Linhart says that, 'T really appreciate what I learned because I
might want to further it in a career." Jeff Mathews said "This prepares
me for the future and gives me the knowledge to build my own home."
Dwayne Ashburn feels privileged because "I am one of the few to help
build this building. Mike Shrum says, "It gives me a good background
for construction in the future." The class concluded saying that if it
wasn't for Mr. Roger Waldrup there wouldn't be a Hall of Fame.

IN A COLLEGE DAZE
Everyone looks forward to receiving letters or birthday cards in the mail. It is a daiiy habit for some
to grab the mail from the mailbox on the way inside the front door from schooi. But for most seniors,
that maii ioad seems to be getting heavier. Information from universities from UCLA to Florida State
start appearing nearly every day.
There are different ways these colleges learn your name and address. Different colieges visit the
school cafeteria certain days during lunch hours. It is a great chance for them to iearn about you
and let the college know you may be interested. By taking the ACT test, you release your score to
three different coiieges. If the college feels they may benefit your needs, they begin to send
brochures and letters.
There are a number of catalogs containing postcards of different schools. These cards have a
number of boxes to mark for the specific information needed, it could be financial aid or
scholarships, and your desired major. School counselors are also a great resource. They can help
find information on schools you may be interested in.
The best way to sort all this college mail is to keep a separate pile of colleges that really interest
you. The rest just pile up in case you change your mind and want to review the sent information.
Before long, that pile will continue to grow and grow.
Through all the stressful decisions and hours of searching through the brochures, the ideal
college will be chosen. If it's a trade school, a junior college, or a state university, be sure to chose
the college that will most benefit you in your lifelong career.
by Melissa Tapp
1. Scott Portell, Rob Terrell, Bobby Thomas, and David Steward think about college.
How fit are you? Have you ever just stopped for a while
and looked at yourself in a full-length mirror? Did you like
what you saw, or did you go 'yuck?'
Most surveys and experts agree that eating right, drinking
plenty of water, and exercise are three good ways to a
healthy and better looking you. And usually a moderate
mixture of these three will almost always give you a slimmer
and healthier body.
Some seniors are always dieting. They think that is the only
way to stay slim and trim. But diets can be harmful if done
in excess. Chris Martinez says, "I want to be skinny like
Tommy Lee, so I try to diet all the time."
What if dieting and eating right just doesn't do it for you.
What are you going to do about all that excess baggage
you are carrying around? How about weights? Sometimes
weight lifting can be a great way to a better and stronger
looking body, because they help you lose the fat and gain
the muscle. "I lift to become strong so it is easier for me to
compete at other athlete's level," adds Mike Nordstrom.
The ways to stay in shape are many and plenty. Have a
glass of water instead of a Pepsi, eat a salad instead of a
hamburger and fries, and walk short distances instead of
getting in the car and driving a few blocks. So boost your self
confidence, improve your appearance, and feel great
THE ART OF CRAMMING
For most students, putting off studying for a test could be considered a way of life. They wait and
wait until there is absolutely no more time left. The test is tomorrow morning at 8 A.M. What's a
student to do? Only one thing left — cram.
When those tests and final exams sneak up on you without warning, it's time to get together with
all those other 'cram' buddies and study the night away. Final exams sometimes have a tendency
of sneaking up on a student.
There are many ways of doing this cramming. Some students put it off until Sunday evening and
about 8 P.M. realize time is running out. So they stay up all night and try to memorize, read, and
utilize their brain power.
Some students cram all weekend long and get totally stressed out. As a result, they may also get
totally stressed out on the test as well and do poorly. Gradual studying is easier and more relaxing.
Others lock themselves in their room with a six-pack of Pepsi or Coke and read their notes over
and over. They also call their friends and see if the notes 'match.' IF the notes are similar, no
problem. If not, call someone else.
This serious studying is really tough. Trying to review an entire semester of work into a few hours
is not an easy task. Maybe the studying should have began a few weeks ago instead of just today.
But then, look at all that free time used for studying. But then, look at that bad grade that may
appear on the grade card.
Which is more important? It's a matter of priorities. Do you blame all this cramming on 'lack of
time' during the semester? Or should you blame it on being plain 'lazy?' Figure it out, because in
a few short months, you'll begin college and it all starts over again.

Chris Stoder says, "Sometimes my friends can be jerks, but I could not live
without them. High school would not be the same without them."
You can spend time with your friends in various ways. One way might
be at the mall. It's fun to shop and it's even more fun to share it with your
friend, especially when you cannot decide what to buy.
Other ways to have a good time with your friends might be sitting
around home watching television or the latest video. Sometimes it's fun
to cruise Madison Avenue or some of the more popular side streets of
Granite City. “Usually, I prefer to just kick back and watch a movie at my
house than to go out," adds Kelly Green.
No matter what you do with your friends, it usually ends up to be more
enjoyable because they are with you. So how about telling that special
friend or friends how much you appreciate them and ail the things they
do for you. It sure would make them feel good, and it would be a nice
gesture on your part too.

DADDY’S LIHLE GIRL
Seven pounds six ounces and dad's life is never the same. Cribs, never
ending diapers, birthdays, Christmas, and pictures were no longer just
mom and dad it was a family. Dad's workout room turned into pink walls
with flowers and ribbons. What dad will ever forget the first crawl, the first
step, and a small cut on the finger?
After being home and growing for five years, the first day of school
was more dramatic for dad than for his little girl. Who was going to
watch her? Who would make sure she had friends? Who would make
sure she would eat all of her sack lunch, particularly the carrots? Who
would tell her where to go and what to do?
Maybe she Is too young to go to school just yet. Maybe she is too
young to receive the hurts and sorrows of the real world that daddy had
protected her from.
Would she cry? Would she run back into her dad's arms and ask to go
home to make dream castles in the sand box that her daddy had built
her so many years ago. Did she cry? Did she run? No, she walked into
the room, shook hands with the little old lady in black shoes and horned
rimmed glasses, walked to the table and immediately made friends
with two other "Daddy's Girls". She took a big step and had grown more
mentally than emotionally than daddy ever dreamed.
In fact, she was proud and happy with her new freedom as the doors
of the world opened to her. Who was really the sad one? Dad. She was
no longer just his little girl. Now, it seems to be just a blink of an eye, she
graduates from high school and the bonds of the front and back door
are broken forever. She has a good education and the keys to the car,
daddy won't see her as often now. But he'li never forget her.

Most students are of the average type, studying during
the week and going out for a good time on weekend. They
drag themselves out of bed at six or seven in the morning
during the week to go to school and begin their fact-filled
day. They listen in class for five days a week and by the 3:05
announcements on Friday, they are ready for some real
What do the students of GCHS feel like doing after a long
hard week of homework, tests, lectures, and cafeteria food?
They like to relax, take it easy, go to a movie, cruise Madison
Avenue, rent a video or two, go shopping, and/or meet new
friends. These are some of the more popular stress relievers.
Some of the seniors share their thoughts of what a good
Friday evening is to them. Jason Leonard goes to work on
Friday and tries to 'stay out of trouble.'
James Scott says that he 'just goes out. Sometimes I party
and sometimes I don't.' he adds.
No matter what seniors do or where they go on the
weekends, they always manage to have fun and revive
themselves for the next five days of school. Monday is usually
a day of droopy-eyed seniors sitting in class or relaxed,
ready-to-work twelfth graders. Which one are you?

MY DREAM CAR
When seniors were asked about their dream car,
there was a large variety of responses. They ranged
anywhere from an Alto Romero to a Z28. Different colors
were mentioned, each with a different, but unique,
striping here or there. Some have some advanced
power stereo systems or a turbo control engine.
Bobby Thomas says, “My dream car would be a black
with red pin stripe 1991 GT 5.0 mustang convertible." “A
black Mitsubishi Talon with a white knob on the gear
shift is definitely the best", thinks Jay Robertson.
The rising price of oil caused gasoline prices to soar
from $.98 in August to about $1.33 in December. This
dampered many spirits when it came to cruising the
streets in good old Granite City and other neighboring
But back to reality. It is fairly impossible for most high
school students to own their very own car, and espe-
cially their own $40,000 Mercedes Benz. Those who do
have their own car, even a 1969 Bel-Air, rarely com-
plain. It sure beats the old two wheel Schwinn in the

It seems impossible for our fours years at GCHS to be
coming to an end. It just seems like yesterday “we were top
dogs" in the 6th and 8th grade. Most of us can remember
our grade school years and now we are going to graduate
as the class of 1990/91.
They say that these four years are the best four years of
our lives. Who can ever forget the fears of getting lost in the
halls on the first day of our freshman years? Placing more
importance on getting to class than going to the restroom.
Some may have even missed lunch because we could not
find the cafeteria.
We will never forget the friendships formed in these four
years. The hours spent on the phone talking to one another
about our earth shaking problems and love concerns.
Who will ever forget bundling up for a Warrior football and
soccer game? The thrill of winning, the sadness of defeat.
Whether it be basketball, baseball, hockey, track, or golf,
sports have been our main menu.
As far as school work goes, they say that in Granite you
receive one of the best educations in the state. It all goes
back to reading, writing, and arithmetic, and the Golden
Rule. The 1991 Senior class has learned these rules. Gradua-
tion night will be a time of happiness and a time of sorrow
when we part. But, through it all it has been much fun and
a truly memorable experience.

CHILL OUT, DUPE
Telling a senior to avoid slang Is like telling a dog to avoid a
bone. Slang terms colored everyone's life in the year of 1990-91 .
Many English teachers were still putting red marks on words like
'gonna/ 'cuz,' and 'awesome,' telling seniors to avoid using
Parents heard their daughters and sons talking on the tele-
phone with friends and became totally convinced that proper
English was once part of their childrens' vocabulary. Both teach-
ers and parents thought that warnings about using slang were
going in one ear and out the other.
But seniors understood each other perfectly and communica-
tion continued in spite of those nervous and caring adults. Here
are some of the popular slang terms for this year.
Awesome - Later, Dude - Yo - No Doubt - Check Ya Later - Hey,
Dude - What Cha Doing? - Scary - Have a Cow - What Is It - Do
What? - Hey, Baby - Chill Out - No way, Man - Killer Dude -
Radical - Let's Cruise - Cool - Know What I Mean? - I About
Freaked - Like - Oh, I'm Sure - Get Real
You didn't have any difficulty understanding the meanings of
the above terms, did you? Of course not. You're seniors and you
know what's going on in your world today.
Just remember — there's life after high school. And when your
children ask you to 'chill out', will It mean the same as it did in
1991? Probably not.
LEFT — RIGHT — LEFT — RIGHT
Could any of the following items cause problems for someone: Soup ladles, pens, pencils, school
desks, or spiral notebooks? If so, they possibly may fall in the small percentage of students who
make up the left-handed population.
How can these be problems? For starters, who has noticed the smudged effect left by pens and
pencils on the left hands or the indentations from a spiral ring notebook? or how about ladles that
have the spout on the wrong side for left-handers. And the majority of school desks have the arm
extensions on the right side.
Pencil sharpeners are make for the majority. Even stereo equipment is difficulty to manage for
left-handed people because usually the knobs and turntable arm are on the right.
Mr. Bunting says that, "Albert Einstein, Harry Truman, Robert E. Lee, and Donald Trump are all
left-handed. So am I." Mr. Cook added and says "ditto, and all good republicans." Even the
president of the United States, George Bush, holds his pens in his left hand.
There are even some inconveniences for sports fans. Baseball mitts and golf clubs are designed
for the right-handed person unless you order a special set.
But despite the difficulties, lefties have overcome. Travis Richey states that "we're really not
Sometimes it was tough. But, most of the time this group of minority students were able to get
through their day just like anyone else. They wrote their assignments, unlocked their locks, and even
got a drink out of the right-handed drinking fountains. So when you see some of these left-handed
students, remember, lefties have rights too.

20th CENTURY WRITERS
BOOKS, PLAYS, & STORIES
In 20th Century Writers, students read modern plays, short stores, and poetry. Some of the novels
they might read are Richard Morvi^'-Wafership Down and John Mersey's Hiroshima. George
Bernard Shav\/'s-5/; Joan and Arthur Laurent's A/ome of the Brave are some of the plays. The Giass
Menagerie arvJii Know Why the Cage Bird Sings are their favorite short stories.
The teachers who teach this course are Helen Cook, Donna McCormick, James Randall and
Mrs, Dame said, "I like teaching this course because the students seem to enjoy it more and they
make better grades, I guess the reason why they enjoy it more is because the course is about
modern authors. The stories aren't so out of date that they can't understand them,"
Kendra Boyer said, "I like the class because Mrs, McCormick expands my horizons," "Sharon
Flowers and I look forward to going to this class everyday because it is so much fun and so
interesting," stated Shannon Hahn.

WORKING WITH FIGURES
Linear inequalities, quadratic equations, quadratic in-
equalities, fractional equations, and radical equations
are just some of the problems the algebra 3 students
have to face during the semester.
Students are required to take one year of algebra and
one year of geometry before taking this very exciting
course. It's all in the math series provided for the students
of Granite City High School.
"Polynomials, factoring, and radical are some of the
topics that must be mastered in the first two semesters of
the math series. Then students are ready to handle the
algebra 3 course." says Be^ Hicks. She enjoys teaching
this class and always enjoys the wonderful group of
students who participate in the program.
At the end of the semester, all students have to take the
final exam. This test is required in order to receive a
passing grade. Good grades are also required.

BEST BUDDIES FOREVER AND EVER
This person has been there for you when the going gets tough and toid you the tough get going.
They've shared their secrets and also shared yours with them. You've known them either a lifetime
or only a couple years. This person is your best friend and you'il never forget them.
Remember ail those great times you had with your best buddy? Going to soccer and football
games or just driving around are just a few.
Most of the people who you become friends with share common interests. You like the same
movies, music, and like to do the same things on the weekends.
When you start college and meet new people, you may meet new friends. Even though new
friends have replaced your old friends, nothing can 'take the place' of the old friends with which
you spent your most memorable days.

High School is said to be your best four years. It is a time to make the grade and also a time to
gain many friendships. Friends have fun together, talk and very commonly play practical jokes on
Do you remember your freshman year? Were you asked to buy an elevator pass and actually
look for the elevator. Situations like this occur very often and even daily at our high school.
After being sick I came back to school and opened my locker, it was empty. All of my books and
posters were gone. At first I though someone stole them, soon I found out that Cheryl Forbes,
Athena Harris and Tina Scaturro had taken my books and spread them throughout the school. Ever
since that day I've still been missing a few books. If anyone knows where I can find them please
return them to Willy. Willy Dimitroff
One morning Eric Mendenhall taped up our locker lock. He was so proud of himself until he
realized that the joke was on him. The lock Eric had taped with sports tape was his own. Vicky

OH, YOU NASTY BOYS
The yearbook staff sent out a survey to junior students. There were a variety of topics and
questions. When the surveys were returned, the variety of answers out did the variety of questions.
Here are some of the resuits.
HAS ANYONE EVER TAKEN YOUR I.D. AWAY FROM YOU? “yes, because they worship my picture"
. . . Doug Tubbs “Yes, to blow it up into a poster" . . . Floyd Dooley.
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO GET INTO CERTAIN GROUPS? “I am the group" . . . Jason Ellis “I shaved
half of my head to be in an afro-skin group" . . . Brad Briggs.
Because of the poor response, other answers were not available. Maybe that's why there's a
song entitled, “Nasty Boys" by Janet Jackson.

I CAN’T DRIVE 55
Remember when you first got your license and couldn't wait to go out on the open road?
Hearing your parents mumble something about using safe driving skills and always wear your
seatbelt, while you thought how good you would look behind the wheel of a new car. Can you also
remember the time when you saw flashing red and blue lights?
Many students can remember the experience Jason Ellis said, “When I got pulled over, I was
driving much too fast in a 25 mph zone." Brian Smith said, "I wanted to go out driving one night,
so one of my friends gave me the keys to his parent's car. I got pulled over for driving 40 mph in
a 15 mph speed zone."
Traci Horstmeyer said, “I was out at low-water dam and I hit three railroad ties and knocked them
out. I had $1500 worth of damage and my car only cost $1000. Kendra Boyer can remember when

They are the students who have jobs after school that run well into the night.
I go to work a 7 pm each night and I often work until 3 or 4 in the morning. These late hours really affect mv
grades-Henry Polach. '
With so many 24-hour convenience stores now open in the area, employees are needed round the clock. Many
students take advantage of this employment opportunity, but lose sleep and sometimes good grades because the
numerous hours spent at work.
I don't think students should work late hours because it affects my school work. I spend more time at work than
concentrating on my grades-Scott Mudd. I don't think working late affects my school work, my grades are alwavs
bad-Amy Mance. ^
Working late hours requires the ability to stay awake and stay cheerful even if your body and mind would rather be
sleeping. Most nighttime customers that come in the place are grouchy or tired. They're there because they forget
to get something earlier in the day or they're hungry and required some nurishment NOW. Some of the places
students keep late working hours are McDonald's, Dairy Queen, Jan's Auto Mechanic, and Baskin-Robbins.
In summary, most of the students who work these late hours did agree on one thing. They said that everyone should
work at night at least once in their life. There's no way to explain it . . it has to be experienced.

YOUR REAL IDENTITY
Year after year students dread lining up for their I.D. pictures to be taken. I.D.'s are taken to
identify ail 2500 students at Granite City High School each year.
I.D.'s are used in many ways. They are an important part of a student's academic and social life,
in order for students to check out a library book, they must use their I.D. Each I.D. has the students's
picture and number. It is also used for school functions. To attend a sporting event (in or out of
town], your i.D. wili reduce the price of you admission. If caught smoking, fighting, cursing or kissing,
your i.D. wiil be confiscated and sent to one of the principais. This insures the guiity student will be
punished according to the rules.
I.D.'s are required to be carried by the student at all times. To make sure students carry their card,
surprise I.D. checks are made in homeroom. If a student doesn't have his or her i.D. the day of the
check, their name is sent to the office. Aren't you giad you have yours?

FASHIONS AND FADS
Fads always come and go. Some stayed for as long as an entire school year and some were 'out' a few weeks after
they were so 'In'.
One fad that seems to be here to stay was pants rolled up at the end. This fashion fad was not only for girls. Guys
adopted this fad just as much as the females did.
"Everyone should roll their jeans because if you don't you'll look like an idiot, like some goof-ball from the 60's-70's
and this is the 90's." Shannon Hahn. "Rolled jeans are ok but more and more people are not rolling theirs!" Gretchen
Another fad that invaded the halls of GCHS was the jeans shorts. This style looked like it might last for a while also.
The two most common types of jeans shorts were the baggy t/pe and the kind that were cuffed just above the knee.
"I think jean shorts are super cool because you can wear them with anything," Chanda Wallace. "Homemade jeans
shorts are the best," Liz Harris.
Another popular fashion statement was the leggins underneath the skirt. This continued all year no matter if the
weather was warm or cool.
"Leggings look good on girls that are under 130 lbs, with a cute shape," Brian Srnith. "That's why they call them
stretch pants." Jerry Heubschman. "In some cases they shouldn't make them that big," Chris Hoffstot.
The clothing that the students chose made a fashion statement for them and made the school year a little more
fun. They wore clothing that was comfortable, fashionable, and bearable for them to survive any t/pe of Granite Cit/
weather. And they also felt that they looked good.

STUDY TIME — TEST TOMORROW
I'm sure you heard someone in your class say, “Test, what test?" Most teachers tell you in advance
when you will have a test so you can study. Then the night before you stay up to 1 :00 a.m. studying
because most people wait until the last minute.
There are different ways to study. For example, talking on the phone, listen to the radio and some
just make cheat sheets, then go to sleep. There are some students that actually study and pass
the test, too. How do you study for that important test?
Ben Ahivers said," i read my notes over and over again and read the chapter three times."
Robert Deboise said he “doesn't study." “Usually with the radio and T.V. on," stated Maria Hawkins.
Chanda Wallace talks on the phone when she studies. Brad Briggs said, “ I sleep with a book on

ALIGATORS AND POLO PLAYERS
Preppies. Who are these people? Where do they come from? You can usually pick them out of
a crowd by a few tell-tale signs, Some of these include button-down collars, Izod shirts, Ralph
Lauren clothing, no socks, designer jeans, and maybe little round glasses. The glasses are worn
even if they are not needed. It adds the preppie touch to the rest of their attire. Here are some
"Too expensive," Jason Ellis. “It looks and feels cooler," Matt Stearns, "Round glasses are classy.
They show that some people have taste," John Hensly If the person decides to wear the Izod shirt,
then the belt should also have the alligator on it. If the little man playing polo is on the shirt, then
the rest of the outfit should also match. You never see a preppie with an alligator and a polo player
on their clothing on the same day.
“I don't go for green alligators," Shawn Gooch. "I think they're really fading out of style. I wore
Izod shirts when I was in third grade," Tara Swalley. "Ralph Lauren Is too cheap for me," Bill Ellis.
"Polo smells great," Marla Hawkins. “Guys wear Polo too strong," Tara Swalley.
Another requirement to be a preppie is that you have to read Esquire, Vogue, and possibly

Are you a party animal? Do you live for the weekends? Most students are already talking about
what they will do next Friday and Saturday night on Monday. When Friday comes around all you
can hear is, "Do you know anyone who is having a party?" and “What are you doing tonight?"
Ben Ahivers likes to go "dancing" on weekends. Becky Walker said, "I like to spend time with my
boyfriend." Maria Hawkins just likes to “have fun being with her friends." "I like to steal my friends
girlfriends." said Brad Briggs. Mike Rody likes to go skateboarding and play his guitar. Chanda

STUDENTS LEARN TO KEEP COOL
School began on a worm note and it seemed that cool weather would never be here. Students
walked from class to class dressed in their shorts and summer shoes. Sometimes they could feel
a breeze of warm air circulate through their classrooms from the open windows: but most of the
time, the air was hot and still.
The heat schedule went into effect for several weeks in the beginning of September. Most of the
students found the schedule to their satisfaction. Rod Heil states, "I would rather go to school on
the heat schedule than the regular schedule all year long. We would still be putting in our five hours
of school and getting out early."
Day by day, the weather got cooler and cooler. By the beginning of October, the temperatures
were in the low 70's and school rooms were once more enjoyable.
by Liz Harris
THE END IS NEAR
Most people say that the junior year in high school is the toughest. Taking the ACT test and other
college entrance tests can be a real strain on the brain. Then others say it's the best of your four years
. . only one more to go and two behind you already.
When the junior year rolls around, many thoughts come with it. The thoughts of graduation, the
prom, the recognition assembly, etc. are just a few. Sitting in the audience at graduation makes
them think what it is going to be like in 1992 when its their turn. Ifs an exciting time.
Students have certain expectations of their senior year. Some think it should be a year of fun and
games while others say it's a time to really study and do their best in school. No matter what your
thoughts are, you'll enjoy it as much as you did this year . . your junior year.

Everyone knows though, that it only happens that way on television. In
chemistry, there is so much hard work to be done. Before anything can be
attempted in the lab. Most importantly, everyone must know what to do in case
of an accident.
To avoid accidents, aprons and goggles must be worn at all times while In the
lab. The instructor will always know the results of any experiment; and only the
necessary chemicals will be out. This eliminates many chances for accidents.
"One of the hardest tasks I face each year is convincing students that
chemistry takes study everyday. Too many students think that a few hours of
'cramming' the night before the test will get the job done. They eventually realize
that it won't." says Mr. Rotter.
Although the wgrk can be tough and quite challenging, the fun comes in the

is not as bad as they thought.
The first speech is an introduction about yourself. Then
you have to give a demonstration. The next time
around you have to tell everyone one of your most
private and most embarrassing moments.
The biggest project in the class is the radio show. In this
project, the students select a group, design a billboard,
and write their own radio show. After the script is writ-
ten, it is presented to the rest of the class. While the
presentation is going on, it is also being taped. That
gives the performers a chance to view themselves.
This class, which is a required sophomore class, helps
students communicate with other people. It is also a
class which lets people express their individuality and

IT HAPPENS TO EVERYONE
Everyone has to grow up,
whether he wants to or not.
Some teenagers can't wait
to be fourteen, then six-
teen, then eighteen, and
then the magical number
In junior high, girls began
to fuss more over their hair
and makeup, and the guys
started to notice. As they
reached high school, dat-
ing had become a real
part of those growing-up
years. But that wasn't easy.
How do you go about ask-
ing that special girl out on
a date — especially if this is
your first time?
A shy guy may quietly ask
a girl, “do you want to go to
a movie? out for pizza? to the
mall? Or, as the times are
now, a girl may go up to a
boy and ask him out for a
Except for school activities,
most dates took place on the
weekend. Popular places to
go were the movies,
McDonald's, one of the many
malls, or out for a pizza.
Coming to high school was
fun. But, along with all the fun
came the heartaches. That
special person who went out
with you this weekend may
not want to next weekend.
What do you do then? Try
again with someone else.
It's all part of growing up.
This is what some sopho-
mores do on weekends.

WAITING FOR SWEET SIXTEEN
All your life you've waited for
that special day when your par-
ents give you the keys to the
car. Of course, you have to lis-
ten to the “with a car comes
certain responsibilities" speech,
but it's worth it. With a cheerful
“have a good time" and a not
so cheerful “don't be home too
late", your parents hand you
On the other hand, some
teens just can't wait for the cer-
emonial passing of the keys,
and decide to sneak the car
out when mom an dad are
gone. This sometimes leads to
an incident that ends by you ex
plaining how the front fender was
smashed while the car had re-
mained in the garage.
For those who do wait, there is
always a problem of finding a
ride. Every sophomore has their
own way to get around and a few

ARE YOU A DEDICATED STUDENT?
Many things take devo-
tion and patience. Other
things take determination
and discipline. It all de-
pends on what it is and
your attitude toward it.
In all activities and in the
classroom, some sort of
dedication is present. It is
one of the most important
elements needed for one's
progress of achievement.
Anybody can devote
themselves to something
they believe in or even
something they don't. One
might say school is an obli
gation and sometimes a bur-
den, but there is a reward for
those who do not forget that
school is a privilege and the
most significant educator in
Those who are dedicated
and work up to their full po-
tential in school will always
do best . . for they are giving
it their all.

LET’S GET PHYSICAL AND FIT
As we enter our sopho-
more year, we begin to
take more notice of our ap-
pearance. We begin to
worry about those extra
pounds and extra flab.
Soon we'll get our drivers
license and we are going
to have to look our best in
that new car we plan to
buy. It's time to begin a
physical fitness program.
How do we do this? We
can exercise, diet, run, stop
eating as much, or just stop
snacking. Some of these
techniques require time
and some require effort.
Jogging can be fun. You
can buy yourself a pretty
outfit and find a friend to
run around with. Dieting is a
little tougher. It takes deter-
mination to begin and con-
tinue with a program. Snack-
ing is the worst. It Is so tempt-
ing to sit in front of the televi-
sion and eat and eat and
eat. The grocery stores have
entire aisles full of snacks that
are good sounding and
But if you plan to get into
those smaller-sized clothing,
you better shape up our eat-
ing habits. That's the only
way you can shape up your-
self as well.

“I walk everywhere." - Renee
"I play soccer." - Donna Mink
"I eat whenever I can or

do." - Chris Glasgow

like it." - Brent Dipple

PUMP UP THE VOLUME
When it comes to music, there
are as many different tastes as
there are musical styles. Some
like to turn up the volume and
listen to their favorite heavy
metal bands on Monday night
metal or Headbangers Ball.
On the other side of the spec-
trum, some like to relax by listen-
ing to the classical music like
Bach. Many people like to listen
to dance or top-forty music, too.
Some stray away from the
mainstream music and listen to
the country music of Hank
Williams Jr. or Randy Travis. Oth-
ers enjoy the heavy beat and
lyrics of Rap.
As are different tastes, there
are as many different radio sta-
tions of preference. K-SHE and
KSD play a variety, from heavy
metal to music
of the late sixties. Q-106.5 plays
everything from pop to top forty to
some rap. Catering to most of the
rap favorites is 107.7. And all those
country fans can tune Into WIL or
KIX. Here a few opinions of what
some like the best.
"Slaughter, Winger.” Emilee Bailey
"Vanilla Ice, Bel Biv Devoe." Shane
"Randy Travis is the best." Melissa
"I'm in love with Randy Travis."
"I like 106.5, because they play
the best music." -Brett Barron
"K-SHE doesn't play rap. I like
that." -Jason Millsap
"Good music and it's neat . .

the music they play." -Chris

HOLD THAT CHALKBOARD
Aren't you lucky? You get
to hold the chalkboard
with the numbers on them.
These photos are always so
flattering and lovely. You
didn't think anyone would
ever see them. Isn't that
what the photographer
told you? Too bad. How
about if we share them
with the entire school. You
don't mind, do you?
You're just one of approx-
imately 2400 students at
Granite City High School.
You are the chosen ones
keeping the numbering
system in order. What a
fancy way to say, "Too bad
for you. It's your turn to hold
It could happen to any
one. You could be one of the
students purchasing a
packet of photos or you may
be someone that just wants a
'yearbook only' photo. It
doesn't matter. The chalk-
board eventually finds it way
to the appropriate person.
All the photos turn out
good. It's just a matter of
one's personal opinion just
how 'good' they reaily are.
Here are some comments re-
garding personal school
"It was one of my better pic-
tures . . better than last
year." -Amanda Westbrook
"They were OK. Could have
been better." -Tony Yurko
"I've had better pictures
taken of me." -Kara
"They are one of the better
ones I've had taken."
"I like them, but they
weren't my best . . but, my
cousin's friends fought over
them." -Jennifer Scheerer
"My friends thought they
were good." -Lene Keeling
"They were the average
school pictures that I al-
ways hate. But, everyone
else thinks they are won-
derful." -Heather Sanders

Is it magic or does the
mailman just walk faster on
those dreaded days when
low and failing notices
come out? Some people
get home as soon as possi-
ble so they can get their
notice out of the mail box.
Others go as slow as possi-
ble, because they know
waiting for them at home is
mom or dad ready to give
the third degree and more.
Suddenly strange lies
come to mind about why
you're doing so poorly in
the class. You begin to rat-
tle off just about anything
that will come to mind.
You're just about in tears or
you think you've gotten
them and they are going to
buy it. Wrong? They just roll
their eyes and snicker at you.
You're at a loss. Those grades
must come up, or your social
life is over. What do you do to
get out of all that trouble?

can't see the board, I can't
hear her, and she hates me."

BIG TEST TOMORROW
You look up at the
clock, only five more min-
utes left till the bell rings,
then you hear those two
mighly words — test to-
morrow. You fumble
through your notes while
groaning of no. Then you
think about the three
other test you have to-
morrow. You have prom-

and you and your best
friend had plans to go to
the mall all week. What
do you do!
Well, the next day rolls
around and you've
looked at your notes five
minutes before your
class. There's no way you
can pass the test. You have a
few options: 1. take the de-
serving grade, 2. tear off the
bottom of a piece of paper
and write the answers down
better known as 'the cheat
sheet', 3. move closer to the
brain that sits next to you. A
few sophomores explain how
they make the grade.
"I study my notes that I have
taken in class." -Shiela Clem-

THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
It's friday night and it's 7:00
p.m., your fiends are getting
ready for possibiy the biggest
party of the year. Talk of this
party has been building up for
over three weeks. Everyone will
be there, even the guy/girl you
have been admiring for the
past month. But here you are
forced to stay in your room be-
cause of that unexpected de-
tention slip for your tardies your
parents received in the mail.
You've tried everything to get
out of the situation. You promise
you'll never be tardy to class
again and you'li clean the en-
tire house tomorrow, including
your room which hasn't been
touched since your 7th grade
year. Since bribery didn't work
with your parents, you ask if you
can be grounded next week-
end instead of this one. You've
had plans with your friends for
the past two weeks.
By this time, your parents are
sick of your pathetic begging and
they scream, ”N O." Off you go to
your bedroom with stomping feet
and slamming doors.
While you're in your room
grounded, your friends are out
having the time of their iives. Does
this sound iike a familiar situation?
There is no way to escape this
horrible punishment. Some of the
experienced sophomores advise
others what to do when you are

Biology is on unpredictable and interesting class taken by students
their freshman year at G.C.H.S. Freshman seem to find Biology excit-
ing because it is very different from any of the science classes they
took in junior high.
During the semester, students will learn how to correctly use a
microscope through the use of various labs and also learn how to
classify organisms into their correct Kingdom, Phylum, Class, etc.
Although it may cause some discontent among freshman, the stu-
dents dissect a frog. They learn by seeing and doing.
When Mr. Tom Pinnell, a dedicated biology teacher, was asked
why he likes to teach Biology I. he replied, "The subject of biology
commends much interest on my life; guiding students to begin to
understand and to come to appreciate the natural world is very

A first year Spanish class is normally filled with freshman, waiting
patiently or even a little obnoxiously, to learn some new words of this
exciting new language. Donald Harris said, "I like Spanish so much
because the language is interesting and my teacher, Mrs. Williams,
makes it so interesting.” Jamey Bridges likes it because, "Mrs. Williams is
a great teacher.” He added later, "I also like the language.”
It takes studying and a little bit of work to understand what's going on
in this subject. Conjugating verbs and transforming English into Spanish is
a little bit tricky, especially if a decent sentence is to appear. Then
there are the questions! ;Donde?, ^Como?, ;Que?, ^Cual?, which one
goes where and when does it go there? To those that don't under-
stand, there's still another year to figure all of these things out and it
To some this language comes easily and they have no trouble under-
standing what's going on. Ireene Gameng is one of those people. She
says, "I like the Spanish language because it's one of the easiest
languages to learn.”
Mrs. Janet Williams concludes, "Spanish class is an opportunity to
learn about different cultures, and see how we, as Americans, are so
fortunate to live here in the United States.”

THE SOAP ADDICTION
Who killed ? What happened to — ?
Did you know that . . . . ? What is really going on
If you watch soap operas, you should be
familiar with these questions. They are the com-
mon questions asked on the afternoon soaps.
Soaps have become an obsession for some
students. They discuss the soaps with other stu-
dents, try to solve everyone's problems, and
match the couples together. It's all in a days
Angie Bearlay says she likes soaps because
''they're romantic, they're exciting and they
keep you in suspense." .
Many people wonder why anyone would
spend hours and hours watching people get
murdered, kidnapped, bombed, or get finan-
cially destroyed. It's entertaining and fun to
figure out what was going to happen before it
actually happens is one of the main reasons
students view the soaps. Another is that they
think some of the guys are "cute" and would not
miss watching them for anything.
Amy Gebhardt thinks Bo Brady on Days of Our
Lives, Jack Devero on Days of Our Lives, and
Cruis on Santa Barbara are the cutest guys on
Some students actually fall in love with the
characters on the T.V. soaps. So if you see
someone running down the hall, to their bus, or
their ride home and they have a desperate look
on their face, get out of their way. They're
probably under the influence of the soaps.

EIGHTH GRADE TO NINTH GRADE
One of the biggest steps in the life ot a
teenager is the moving from junior high
school to high school. Most ot the eighth
graders agree that they can't wait to get
to the senior high.
There were so many differences be-
tween eighth grade at the junior school
and ninth grade at the senior school.
There seemed to be more freedom, or at
least It seemed that way because we
were one year older. And that one year
made us so much more grown up.
Nathan Hill says, "the nicest thing
about being here is that I am no longer

THE TYPICAL FRESHMAN SITUATION
Remember what it was like to be a freshman?
Many students try to believe that they never
belonged to that dark era of life. Tradition has
always had it, quite unfairly, that the freshman
was the bottom of the high school totem pole,
and the favorite victims of mischevious upper-
These older class members claimed that
freshmen often lacked good looks, manners,
and grace. They seemed to always be combing
their hair, looking in mirrors, and always drop-
ping their books in the hallways.
Strange incidents of freshmen casualties also
happened quite frequently in the middle of
crowded areas. Explanations as to what hap-
pened, or of whom assaulted the poor student
often went unanswered.
But not all older students make trouble from
these little people. Brooke Bjorkman said
"Nathan McClain has really helped me during
my first year at the high school."
Many seniors, juniors, and sophomores help
the youngsters through the halls, with their
schedules, and their locker combinations. They
act as their older peers and often overlook the
strange happenings or questions. They often
snicker to themselves when they have over-
heard some remarks they thought quite funny
and something a typical freshman would ask.
They overlook it and just say, "They're freshmen."

LIFE GOES ON AND ON AND ON
Have you ever had food stuck in your
teeth when you were talking to that
'special someone?' Have you tripped
over your own feet or spilled some
soda in the cafeteria? Didn't you just
want to disappear? Everyone has had
one of the embarrassing moments
throughout their high school days.
David Justice said, "I feel down the
steps.", and Brian Nemeth has an " . . .
older brother calling him 'freshman.'"
Being embarrassed is not all that
bad. When you think about it every-
body gets that way once in a while. If
you can laugh about it it helps. But some-
times that's difficult to do.
Matt Lienemann said, "I got my books

READ AND FOLLOW ALL THE RULES
High school rules are tolerable for all students,
Everyone should read them and follow them.
That's the rules.
The rules at the high school are not the same
as in junior high. That's why it is important to
know what you can and cannot do here at the
big school. It's a good idea to get the ruie book,
read it, know it, and foilow the ruies. That'll keep
you informed and probabiy out of school trou-
Some of the freshmen comments regarding
ruies were, "I don't mind them," "Why do i have
to foilow them?" "Every place has its ruies," "It
sure is different here. It's not like in junior high
schooi," and "Why so many rules."
It's important that you are familiar with the
smoking rules, the tardy policy, and the ab-
sence poiicy. It's also a good idea to tell your
parents the name of your guidance counseior.
Your guidance counseior is the person your
parent cail when you are at home sick in bed.
If you are sick in bed, you're probably too tired
to wake up and disciose the name of your
counseior to your parents ... so give them a
break and teli them before you get sick.
Believe it or not, ruies are made for a reason.
Basicaliy, they are made and enforced to keep
order and maintain discipiine at the high
school. There is a iogicai explanation for any
high school rule . . just read it a couple of times
and you'll begin to understand it.
by Emily Stitch
JUST A LIHLE ADVICE FOR YOU
Entering high school can be a frightening
experience. No one knows this better than a
ninth grader. These wide-eyed students come
to school not knowing what to wear, what to
say, or how to act. This is where the upperclass-
man comes in to assist. Here is some good
advice to help break the ice and get things
going for these young students.
Tim White says, ” ... Do anything you want.
Your actions shouldn't be dictated by some-
body just because they are a few years older.'
Todd Pryor continues to say, "... Don't be
afraid to open your mouth and say what you
feel. But, if you do, don't be surprised if you get
Dan Terrell concludes and says," . . . Stay with
it and don't forget the grades either."

1. Seniors give some advice to the freshman boys in their P.E. classes. They tell them what to expect during

PLEASE OBEY THE FOLLOWING RULES
In order to survive as a freshman at Granite
City High School, there are some major rules to
follow. Of course, you must obey all the school
rules. But, be prepared for some rules made up
by the upperclassmen.
1. Don't panic the first day of school. 2. If you
cannot find your way to your first class, just keep
walking — you'll eventually find it. 3. Stay out of
the way of the upperclassman. Don't think you
know more than a senior. 4. Be prepared for
teasing. 5. Don't get angry at name calling or
practical jokes. 6. Remember that whatever a
senior wants, they usually get. 7. Don't cut in
front of someone oider than you in the cafeteria.
8. Try not to get too close to lockers — you may
end up in one. 9. Smile. 10. Be nice to seniors,
juniors, and even sophomores. 11. Don't get
discouraged . . . remember that all upperclass-
man were once freshmen. They survived . . so

AT THE HELM
The last textbook was returned. The last attendance sheet was picked up. The last final grade
was determined. The last diploma was issued.
Finally, a lull came in the frantic last-week and last-day activities. Finally, the GCFIS principal had
several free moments to relax and reflect over the year which had just ended.
What had been unique about 1990-91? Flad it been a year which could be distinguished from
those which immediately preceded and which would immediately follow?
To begin with, this was David Painter's first year at the helm. Mr. Painter had served as assistant
principal at this school and at CGFIS/North, but he had never been the man in charge.
This year, then, had been unique for Mr. Painter. As he sat and reflected on his first year at the
helm, he realized that many of his goais for the past year had been met.
Improved communication in the high school had been one of Mr. Painter's goals. Fie instituted
meetings, wrote personai memos and encouraged parent-teacher interaction to heip establish
better communication. In addition, there was a positive change in students' behavior and attitude.
Change in discipiinary procedure and new student spirit activities heiped to make students have
better reactions to their schooi.
Finaiiy, Mr. Painter said that he would remember this year as a year of cooperation. 'The
cooperation of the students and staff with the administration helped make this a very successful

212 ASSISTANT PRINCIPALS
THREE BRAVE MEN
Being an assistant principal is one of the toughest jobs at the high school. Besides all the time spent
at school, they also willingly attend dances, concerts, and sporting events. These three good and brave
men are Allen Kennerly, Walt Whitaker, and Jerry McKechan.
Mr. Kennerly's job puts him in charge of student records, progress reports, and eligibility forms. He also
deals with the stujdents who drop out of school and the newly enrolled ones.
He says that "being in charge of all student records is both rewarding and challenging. I enjoy the
responsibility of keeping track of all the little details that make up a student's permanent record."
Mr. Whitaker is mainly in charge of discipline. He is responsible for students whose last names begin
with the letters M thru Z. He says “It's pretty hectic in our office sometimes, but overall the student body
is well behaved and does an outstanding job in supporting sports and extra curricular activities. We
have a great school."
Mr. McKechan joined us this year from Grigsby Junior High School where he taught health and P.E.
He is also in charge of disciplining students. The letters A thru L are his responsibliity. He says everyday
is a challenge-different and exciting. Everyone should try this once.
Without these three gentlemen, our school would not run as smoothly as it does. The teachers and
other administrators are always aware of this and grateful for their assistance and cooperation.

irs NOT JUST A JOB
Early each morning of the school year, approximately 130 teachers pull into the parking lots, step
from their cars, and enter the hallowed halls of Granite City High School.
What brings these teachers out at such an early hour? What brings them back day after day? Could
it be students who are eager for learning? Often. Could it be those students who challenge teachers
every minute they are in class? Frequently. Could it be exorbitant salaries. No. But show up these
professionals do. They come because they know they can make a difference. It doesn't have to be a
big difference — just a difference.
The day often starts with a mug of coffee strong enough to float a horseshoe. The early birds know
their job is to get that coffee pot going. That tantalizing aroma floats down the hallway, drawing others
with cups in hand. And so begins another challenging day at GCHS.
Picking up their mail and greeting friends and colleagues, those professionals make their way to the
special turf to do what they do best. The joys and rewards are many, and in quiet moments of
frustration, they reassure themselves with some familiar sayings, 'Teachers touch the future." "I'm here
for a reason," and "the good days always seem to outnumber the bad."

GOOD-BYE OLD FRIENDS
After years of education and after years of helping people achieve their educational goals, dreams, and hopes a fev/
of our teachers are retiring this year. The students and faculty would like to wish them well in their retirement and hope that
it will be full of joy and happiness. Everyone knows that here have been many ups and downs in their careers when dealing
with the unpredictable behavior of students as they are trying to achieve adulthood.
Below is a brief biography of each retiree:
Frank DallaRiva, business teacher, attended Livingston, Illinois High School and went on to continue his education at Illinois
State University. He began teaching business at Granite City High School in 1958, now in 1991 is ready for a change in his
life. After retiring, he plans to fish, travel, and hike. Mr. DallaRiva would like to leave some last words of advice to high school
students, “Students need to apply themselves and take advantage of their opportunities - which they have many."
Dale Rice, math teacher, attended Granite City High School and then went on to continue his education at SlUE. He
began teaching at GCHS in 1965 and now he would like to move on and teach in different parts of the world.
Milton Cox, business teacher, attended Wheeler High School in Mississippi. He later went on to pursue his education in
Nashville, Tennessee at Vanderbilt. He began teaching at GCHS in 1956 and no would like to travel and do volunteer work.
Mr. Cox says, “At the beginning of my teaching career students, in general, seemed to have needed less incentives and
“prodding" in lesson preparation and learning. In comparison, todays students need more incentives and encouragement.
Several factors may cause this need, such as more outside interferences, excessive T.V., drugs, less parental involvement,
and less pressure from teachers for achievement standards. I believe most of our students are capable of adjusting to these
factors and making a success of themselves in life."
Al Turner, vocational teacher, attended Granite City High School. He then went on to continue his education at St. Louis
University. He began working at the board office in 1970 as assistant business manager. In 1974 he changed jobs and
started teaching at Alton Junior High School. A year later he moved back to Granite City and began teaching at Granite
City North High School. In 1984, when our high schools merged, Mr. Turner continued teaching in Graite City and now in
1991 he would like to retire and enjoy the rest of his life.
Evelyn Fedora, counselor, attended Madison High School. After graduation she furthered her education at SlUC. Mrs.
Fedora, although relatively new to our high school, is ready to retire and find out what else life has to offer. She has
contributed much to our school and has had a wonderful influence on our students. When asked to comment our her job,
she replied; “I value the opportunity to work with high school students. I hope our students feel that they are important to
The students at GCHS say, “Thank you for holding on and dedicating your lives to ours." Many will immulate you and take
the torch of education to other young people.

Everyone knows that "smoking ain't allowed in
school." and there should be no "smoking in the boys'
room" either. That was made perfectly clear by a
unique group of faculty and staff members as they lip
synced their way into the hearts of everyone who
attended the 1990 lip sync competition. ^
Their version was sung by Motley Crue, but the
original goes back a few years to when the members
of Motley Crue were still in diapers. In either case, the
message is still the same — no smoking in school. If
you don't believe that, just ask Mr. Jerry McKechan.

“The next exciting test will be over "
Each day in the classrooms throughout Granite Cit/ High
School a variety of topics was discussed, projects and lessons
assigned, and activities conducted. Glasses were offered to
meet the needs and Interests of all students.
College-bound students enrolled in academic classes such as
chemistry, algebra, foreign language, or biology.
Career-oriented students had an opportunity to learn job skills
they could use immediately. Office skills were taught In business
classes and some students took advantage of the co-op pro-
gram and began working during their last two years in high
Vocational opportunities came from classes such as welding,
graphic arts, drafting, machine shop, metals, electricity, auto-
motive, and building trades. Some of these classes offer 'hands-
on' experience, such as automotive. Also in the building trades
class, students help build the new Hall of Fame that will grace
the Granite City High School campus.
Specialized and practical skills such as art, foods, career,
fashion merchandising, music, and speech were also made
available for interested students.
Thus, everyday at GCHS, students were preparing for their lives
after graduation. And the teachers were there to instruct, assist,
and advise the future business women and men of our commu-

ON AGAIN — OFF AGAIN
Every year bn January 1 or December 31, people throughout the world resolve to do or not to do.
They plan to give up bad habits, clean up their act, and pay more attention to their personal faults.
Teachers are among these noble people. Many will resolve to stop smoking, lose weight, be nicer
to everyone, or make more money. The ones who keep these resolutions are disciplined and motivated
enough to succeed. The teachers who don't always have another year to try again.
Ralph Rotter — “I didn't make any, because I always break them anyway." Larry Talbert — "to try
harder." Sheila Christianson — "Just to make it through 1 991 -honestly. Elaine Parish — "lots of fun in '91 ."
Sheryl Evans — "I'm going to get my eyes checked." Thomas Lubak — "lose weight and grade my
papers on time." David Hopp — "reduce my stress level at school so my blood pressure can drop and
approach a normal level." Betty Hicks — "I was going to seriously diet. However, I heard on the radio
it is too stressful to start a new year that way." Frank DallaRiva — "more fun and less work." Cynthia
Hormell — "to lose ten pounds — the same ten pounds I've lost numerous times and to become a
better teacher and motivate students more." Allen Lobdell — "to be a better teacher and coach and
stop eating three meals a day.

NOBODY DOES IT BEHER
The month of September began another work year for the Warrior yearbook staff. It was the
month that they would once again select their ‘spotlight teacher’ featured at the end of the faculty
section. They thought about this for a few days and decided that this was the year for Mr. Mel
Most of the seniors on the staff had Mr. Bunting for their economics teacher and were sincerely
overwhelmed by his knowledge of the subject. Skip Birdsong said that “Mr. Bunting made
economics one of the funniest classes I had during school.” “His class was the first class I had a
great time in and didn’t get in trouble for it.” added Byran McKechan.
Mr. Bunting has been a teacher at Granite City High School for 22 years. He enjoys his job and
this admiration for teaching and high school students is reflected in his daily lectures. Emily Stitch
says, “Mr. Bunting is not just an excellent teacher, he’s also a great person. He treats his students
with respect and makes you feel like your opinions and comments count. I’m very glad I got the
chance to have him as one of my teachers.”
He has also been assistant soccer coach here for 18 years. His fellow coaches. Gene Baker and
David Ames, are both work buddies and close friends. It would be impossible to have such a
successful soccer season year after year without complete cooperation and respect among the
“The three of us. Coach Baker, Mr. Bunting and myself, have been friends for a long time and look
out for each other. The close friendships we have, I think has a lot to do with the success the soccer
program has experienced. We are friends both on and off the soccer field and seem to know how
each of us fell about many situations’ says good friend and teacher David Ames.
With his wife, Cathy, and two children, Chris end Lauren, Mr. B shares his lovely home in
Rosewood Heights. His oldest daughter, Lisa, lives in Atlanta, Georgia. Very soon she will make him
the proud grandfather of his first grandchild.
Mel Bunting puts enthusiasm into each and every lecture he gives. He doesn’t just teach out of
a text book, but he relates economics to student’s every day life. Probably the most noticed quality
in Mr. Bunting is the fact that he really cares about his students and will go out of his way to assist
them in any way he can, whether it be an assignment or even a college recommendation letter.
The Warrior yearbook staff thinks that Mel Bunting is the best thing to come along since apple
butter . . . and we all know that’s good!

THE LADIES OF GCHS
When speaking of dedication, thoughtful-
ness, and understanding, it is natural to think
of the secretaries of Granite City High
School. They are hard-working ladies that
deal with students, teachers, and adminis-
They arrive before anyone gets to school
and are usually the last ones to leave the
building. They face hours of endless paper
work, excuses, and phone calls, and they
always manage to keep smiling.
The high school secretaries include Geor-
ganne Georgeff, Gladys Zukas, Nancy Ro-
sales, Donna Swanson, Kristen Hamilton,
Jane Moore, and Kathleen Webb. Pat Uzun-
off and Berta Milianis are board office sec-
retaries at the high school.
The endless hours of paperwork done by
these ladies sometimes goes unrecognized.
Many do not stop to realize that this high
school would not run as smoothly as it does
without them. They do their work, go home,
and come back the next day ready to
begin all over again.

Everyday when you come to school one might think, what will we get for lunch
today? A usual day for the dedicated cafeteria staff is getting up at 5:30 A.M. in order
to be at the high school by 7:00 A.M. That's what the cafeteria staff does five days a
They work diligently to get everything put together on time and in the right way. Their
jobs do not end for the day untii they get everything ready for the next day to begin. So
when they get to work at 7:00 everything is ready to go.
The lady that has this responsibility is Nancy Wilson. Mrs. Wilson has been at the high
schooi for eight years and in charge for five years.
Mrs. Nancy Wiison stated, "\ enjoy the job very much and the women are great to
work with. The staff works great with the kids." She adds, "Since the campus has been
ciosed, we have provided a variety of foods for the students to choose from."
Students often take this staff for granted. They do not realize that Granite City High
Schooi would not be the same if it was not for the hard work, dedication, hours, and
care of ali the staff who heip keep this school running smoothly and the people well fed.

YO, YOU OVER THERE
Monitors ore a familiar sight now around the
campus. Six monitors have returned from last
year, and before. They are Don Gray, Kathy
House, Charlie Jakul, Connie Paterson, Beverly
Golden, and Terry Kent.
Terry is a part-time monitor along with Ginny
Henson who is new this year.
The full time monitors arrive every morning at
7:15 a.m. and are at school until 3:30 p.m. They
patrol the entire school inside and out during the
school day. Connie Paterson says that “It's bet-
ter this year. The students respect us more,
which makes our job easier." “What I enjoy most
about this work are the students. Nothing makes
me happier than to see them happy. And defi-
nitely when the weather is really nice outside."
says Kathy House.
The part-time monitors are here from 10 a.m.
until 1:30 p.m. They monitor the cafeteria and
surrounding areas during the lunch hours. When
asked what she thinks of her job, Mrs. Henson
replied enthusiastically, “I love my job!"
The monitors help to keep order and discipline
around the campus. With only seven monitors to
watch over so many students, their job isn't an
easy one. Some days they must stand in freezing
weather to see that no one is on the move to
sneak off campus. Even under conditions like
these, they always have a cheerful hello and
bright smiles for everyone.
With the success of the closed campus, it
looks like the monitors are here to stay, and most
students like that idea.

Very few students at GCHS ever stop to
consider how important the custodians
really are. They work 7 days a week 12
months a year to help make our high school
days run smoothly.
Custodians usually go unappreciated.
Many students do not know or realize the
time, effort, and hours these hard working
people put in.
During the year there are custodians as-
signed to the day and evening shift. During
the day, when school is in session, the cus-
todians can be seen throughout the build-
ing keeping the campus clean and orderly.
In the evening, other custodians come and
have their designated classrooms and
area to clean. Both of these shifts are very
time consuming and strenuous, but the
summertime is one of the worst parts of
their job. This is the time when they have to
clean all the rooms, make repairs, replace
lights and missing tiles, and tend to all the
other things that need to be completed to
do their job well.

Time, patience, and optimism are qualities our teacher aides possess. Their job is very demand-

PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB 243
What group of people have the most fun? What group is elected by their peers to direct the activities of
the school? What group forges friendships for a lifetime? They serve without pay but learn the principles of
leadership and how to get people to work together toward a common goal. They are the elected student
council of Granite City High School.
They organize the semi-formal dance and other dances, the homecoming parade, Christmas and
Thanksgiving baskets, shopping sprees and shoes for the needy, and student of the month. Their main goal
is to get students, parents, and the administration involved and dedicated to the idea of Warrior pride.
Through their volunteer efforts, the members learn valuable lessons of what the real world is like. They
meet the people that run the school system and the business world. They work with teachers, administrators,
and business people. They get involved in school and business projects. They learn by doing and not by just
The person who is behind all of this is their sponsor-Mr. Steve Hamilton. Mr. Hamilton has been the sponsor
for the last 1 2 years. He enjoys his work and his participation in the student council projects. "It's always such
a pleasure to meet such great people who care so much for other students, people, and the community.
The council representatives put in literally hundreds of hours. It makes you so proud," replies Mr. Hamilton.
The 1990-91 president Is Leah Schuman and serving as vice-presidents are Darla Mayhall and Andy
Jenkins. , . .. l. ^
Andy says, "The vice-president's position has been an honor to fill as well as a pleasure. I have had fun
this past year in student council." ^
Darla Mayhall adds, "I feel that being chosen to serve as vice-president of student council this past year
has been a honorable position and a memorable one,"
Leah Schuman concludes by saying, "Being student council president was a very strenuous but very
rewarding experience. But without the help of the vice-presidents; Darla Mayhall and Andy Jenkins, our
student council advisor, Steve Hamilton and the entire student council the success of all of our activities
would not have been possible."

The Foreign Language Club is very unique. People with an interest in foreign languages join this
club. Having an interest in a foreign language and wanting to learn more about a country and
its heritages are primary reasons why students at GCHS became involved in the Foreign Language
This year the club sold Christmas decorations and went to see cultural foreign plays.
The Foreign Language Club includes members from both Spanish and German classes. Mr.
Dennis Church is the club sponsor. Hard work, fund raising, and after school meetings all proved
worthwhile at the end of the school year. It was a year of learning and sharing.
Susan Stegall served as president. Shawn Patrick as vice president, Patricia Soto as secretary,
and Amber Rogers as treasurer.
Members enjoy being part of the Foreign Language Club because it lets them explore the other
parts of the world. Mr. Church also makes the club very valuable with his support. He helps the
members better understand the ways of other countries.

The spirit club, also known as red peppers, plays an
important part in the lives of our students and our schooi
spirit. This unique group of girls decorate the halls, cheer
for the players, and are responsible for the 'secret pals.'
The gentlemen athletes appreciate the work and effort
put into the secret pal campaign. They always try to guess
who their 'pai' is before being told. The girls also appreci-
ate the good work the boys do in their individual sports.
The lady responsible for all the work and good times is
Mrs. Janet Williams. Mrs. Williams has been with the red
pepper program for 4 years. She enjoys working with the
giris and it definiteiy shows in the effort she displays
throughout the school year.

Being a teenager isn't easy and the road to becoming an adult can be twisted and uncertain.
Many of us run into problems that sometimes we feel we cannot face alone. But with the help of a
friend, the problems seem smaller. Friends are people who are there for you in a time of need and
troubles, but also in the good times.
Empathy is a special organization of 'friends' coming together to share their problems and help
each other deal with uncertainties. The group of friends in empathy help each other become
better listeners and helpers to each other. They help each other understand their own feelings as
well as the feelings of others.
To meet the requirements of this special group, you must keep your grades up, attend school
on a regular basis, and stay out of trouble. You also must promise to be drug and alcohol free,
respect the privacy of others, and be a caring person and listener.
The two gentlemen who sponsor empathy are Jack Haug and Michael Johnson. Both men are
guidance counselors at GCHS and know how to deal with the feeling, emotions, and troubles of
high school teenagers.
"If I had to choose one word to sum up what empathy means, the word would be 'caring' —
caring about others and caring about yourself," says Mr. Johnson.
^ Other adult helpers in the organization are Ronald Pennell, Sonya Adkerson, Pam Baker, Kathy
house, Jamie Johnson, and Berta Milianis.
"I am involved with empathy because I want to make a difference in the lives of young people.
By caring and sharing, we can help each other," says Mrs. Adkerson.
This year empathy went to Pinckneyvilie, Illinois, for a three day retreat at Camp Salbteska. This
is a special time for empathy members and is described by Mr. Haug as a "time of sharing."
Karla Broyles sums up the retreat experience by saying, "If you go on the retreat, you get to
know people on a personal basis. You also get to show your feelings about peer pressure. It's a lot
of fun." by Kendra Boyer

of drug usage than schools who do not sponsor this program. Mr. Jack Haug and Mr. Michael

SPEECH & THEATRE
If you've always wanted to be an actress or actor, join the Speech and Theatre
club. This is one of the most productive and active groups at Granite City High
School. This club consists of students from debate, individual events, and stagecraft.
As the school year began, the theatre group was busy rehearsing for the
Homecoming play, "Cheaper By The Dozen." As usual, it was an outstanding
performance by the students and the teachers who assisted and trained them.
The I.E. team is another group of very gifted actors. They are a major part of the
plays that go on at CCHS. Mrs. Beverley Scroggins is in charge of these talented
None of these productions could be possible if it were not for the stagecraft
student. They put the realistic look to the performance.
The debate team is sponsored by Ronald Pennell. They participate in tournaments
and spend many hours of research to ensure perfection. This will also ensure they will
bring home the blue-ribbon.
These teams are very beneficial and being part of them gives the students a
chance to be recognized for all their hard work and effort.

to bring athletes together and involve them
in activities to reduce inter-disciplinary rival-

The club serves as a social and service

the club tor you. Students involved with this club really
enjoy it. Sarah Patton says, “The Foreign Policy club is
really great. I've been in the club for two years and
it's really fun."
Mr. Phil Shatto is the sponsor of this club. He has
been sponsoring this organization for twenty years.
He described himself as being "in between" liberal
and conservative. Also, he is the Social Studies De-
partment head for G.C.H.S.
This year. Foreign Policy took a spring trip to San
Diego, California for four days. Mr. Shatto stated that,
"Travel is a great way to learn about the country;
much more interesting than to read it in a textbook."
On the trips they take, they go sightseeing to histori-
cal places. To raise money to take this trip they sold
oranges and grapefruit. Another activity of the club
included writing letters to our troops in Saudi Arabia.

TWIRL THAT FLAG
The Granite City Flag Squad consisted of
many ambitious girls. The squad performed be-
fore and during games at half-time. The cap-
tains for the 1990-91 flag squad were Lisa Fer-
nandez, Sara Bone, and Sharon Kozjak.
These girls practice very hard to make the
best of their talents and to perform with their top
skill. They practice during and after school. Thbir
summer is taken up by parades, camps, and
competitions. All is well worth it.
The talents of these bright young women are
put to the test during football games, parades,
basketball games, competitions, and May Car-
ousel. The hours involved in flag /auxiliary routines
are very important. They must take advantage
of practice in order to make the best perfor-
mances possible. After devoting their time and
talents to Granite City High School, the girls be-
come very close throughout the year.
Last year's May Carousel performance was
very good. The performance was well choreo-
graphed by the captain of the 1989-90 squad,
Each year the squad holds tryouts for the next
year's squad. A girl wanting to tryout must be
ready to devote an enormous amount of time
and effort to the squad. Dennis Meyer and Nor-
bert Tate are the gentlemen who sponsor the

ALWAYS READY TO PERFORM
Rifle members put many hours into perfecting
their performance. They show their talents at
sporting events. May Carousel, the Veiled
Prophet Parade, and competitions.
Rifle tryouts are held at the close of each
school year. Girls wanting to try out for the
squad to through a two-week learning period
where the captains teach the new students
commands and routines.
Each year before rifle tryouts are held, a spe-
cial tryout is held to select new captains. The
girls trying out for captain must have been in the
rifles squad the previous year and must do three
routines. The first must be an original. The other is
a song chosen by Mr. Meyer or Mr. Tate, and the
last routine is constructed by the previous senior
captain. After all this is finished, she must go
through an interview with judges consisting of
Mr. Meyer, Mr. Tate, and previous senior cap-
The captains of the 1990-91 rifle squad were
Adria Crane and Rebecca SanSoucie. They
have worked many hours to make up different
routines. This year's captains have ensured great
performances throughout the year and the stu-
dents of GCHS are proud of them.

BEHIND THE PRETTY SMILES
The ^ 990 - 9 ^ Pom-Pon squad is made up of 28 girls. There is more to these girls than
meets the eye. Behind their pretty smiles are ambitious, hard working, talented dancers.
Much of their spare time is taken up practicing and performing. The poms spend many
of their nights practicing after school to be the best they can be. These girls will agree
that all the hard work pays off in the end and is well worth it. Brandie Greco says, "We
always work really hard, but we have a great time."
Their hard work was awarded. This past summer at Eastern Illinois University they were
awarded with Outstanding Home Routine. They also received the Spirit Baton and the
Grand Champion trophy.
The captain of the squad is senior Cari Crawford. To help her are co-captains, senior
Amy Niepert and junior Angela Jacobs.
Cari would like to wish the whole squad, "Good luck in the years to come, and enjoy
them, they'll go by too fast. Just don't ever give up!"

I’VE GOT THE MUSIC IN ME
If you enjoy music and play a musical instrument you should become a member of the GCHS
band. The band is a very talented organization and very important to the students at GCHS.
When fans hear the school song being performed by the band everyone gets into the spirit of the
event. That boosts the morale of our athletes to play a great game.
The director is Mr. Dennis Meyer. This is his fifth year at Granite City High School. He is a very busy
person, besides directing the band he also directs the Flag, Rifle, and Pom Pon squads. The
assistant band director is Mr. Norbert Tate. He helps direct the Jazz, Concert, and Pep bands. He is
the Percussion Instructor tor the Marching Band. This is Mr. Tate's second year here at GCHS.
Every summer the band goes to camp for two weeks to sharpen their music skills for the football
season. They also take part in a number of contests such as the V.P. Parade, Murphyboro Parade
and they have performed at Busch Stadium a number of times. Not to mention all the local
parades they have participated in.
Mr. Meyer states that, "This has been the most successful year ever." "It's a very educational
and musical experience." said Kim Morgan. Chuck Noud said "I think people of high school age
should at least try to experience this before stereotyping us." "It's a fun challenge for us all.",
comments Mark Harper.
If you have musical talent, lots of school spirit, and love to have fun; then you have what it takes
to be a Granite City High School band member. B L‘ H

Pounding the mat, jumping up and down, yelling to the crowd are just some of the duties of the
GCHS cheerleader. Their job isn't all fun. There are hours and hours of hard work and dedication
that go along with the excitement.
Why become a cheerleader? The reasons vary as much as the girls do. Leah Schuman's reason
for leading the fans in cheers is to motivate the players and keep the spirit in troubled times.
There are cheering squads for football, soccer, wrestling, and basketball. The girls who cheer for
these oports also enjoy watching them. Kristen Jenness ”... really enjoyed cheerleading through
the season and made a lot of great friends. I'll always remember the great times our squad had
To improve the quality and variety of the cheers, the girls attend camps at Southeast Missouri
State and practice long and hard hours through the summer. Emily Stitch said, "Camp was a
great experience. We learned a lot, made new friends, and learned to work together as a
squad. It helped us throughout the entire season."
The highlight of any season is when and if the team goes to state competition. This year the
soccer Warriors won state. Deana Whaley thought, "Cheering State was fun and exciting,
especially when we became the state champions."
The support these girls give to the teams in invaluable. They give their 'all' no matter what the
team does or how far they go in competition. But they know that's what they are supposed to
do. They definitely have their work cut out for them and they enjoy every minute of it.

CHEERFUL LITTLE SMILES
Both positive and negative feelings and attitudes accompanied being a cheerleader.
There were always the good times, but there are also some tough situations cheer-
leaders must face.
Nobody, but another cheerleader, knows the time and effort that goes into this
activity. There are endless hours of practice and more practice. Most evenings they
don't get home until 4:40 or 5 P.M. Tired from continuously repeating their routines, they
begin their homework before bedtime only to begin again the next day.
There are, however, good sides. Participation in the sport for which they cheered was
always rewarding. Watching their favorite team win was exciting for both themselves
and the fans. ^ , .

304 WINTER PLAY
"The Diary of Anne Frank" was put on by the speech
department of Granite City High School. The setting of
the play took place in Amsterdam during the years of
World War II and immediately thereafter.
The cast for the play was very hard working and
dedicated. The rehearsals were long and very hard,
but definitely worth it. The play went off with great
success. All were very pleased with the performances.
"We put in a lot of hard work or the stage, but the final
result was great. It was wonderful to work with Nick
and Jenny, they are so talented," said Erin Rotter.
The play was performed on Thursday and Friday,
February 7th and 8th, and couldn't have been at a
better time. The play was a complete hit and every-
one enjoyed it. Mr. Painter encouraged everyone that
did not go Thursday to go Friday because it was such

A FOOTBALL EXPLOSION
From the first long, hot practice in August to the lost, brisk practice in October, the main object
of any football team and it's coaches is to win. That's exactly what this varsity team intended to
Under the new coaching of Tom Wyrostek our Warrior team exploded. Even though they didn't
win every game, the improvement from the '89 season was remarkable. The boys kept their spirits
up and their hopes high at the approaching of every game. It takes hard work to have a winning
season, not to mention all of the sweat and dirt involved.
One of the greatest or perhaps, the most memorable moments the players had this season
was, "Winning the first game for Coach Wyrostek and kicking the winning field goal with 12
seconds left in the game against Alton." says Mike Nordstrom.
For Bobby Thomas it was, "the game against Belleville West. We hadn't beat them in a long
time." When Mike Vaughn was asked, he replied, "being the underdog against Cahokia and
coming out victorious."
To Coach Wyrostek, "This year's football team was, at times, as exciting a football team as you
would like to be around."
As this year's season drew to a close, the younger players looked to the future. Maybe the
playoff dream will come true.
Todd Pryor concluded with, "Cur goal as seniors was to go out winners, and we did. If next
year's team does as good. I'll feel we had a part in it."

AN ALL-AMERICAN COACH
As a coach it is his responsibilities to improve the team, encourage them to do better, and
keep their spirits up so they are able to concentrate on winning their next game. This is exactiy
what Coach Tom Wyrostek did for the varsity team.
After six seasons of footbali under the coaching of Ronaid Yates, Tom Wyrostek took over.
Coach Wyrostek graduated from East St. Louis High School and continued his education at the
University of Missouri. Then he came to Granite City to teach and coach.
He is now enjoying his first year back as head footbali coach and assistant athietic director.
When asked about this years season and team, he repiied, "It was an enjoyable year. They were
super kids, who worked hard and wanted to win." He is also proud to say, "They were never a
He looked optimistically at next year and said, "They are going to be as good as they want
to be. They have enough talent to compete with every team on the schedule."
What does it take to make a successfui team? Hard work and concentration are needed.
That's exactly what Coach Tom Wyrostek does for this school.

ALMOST AT THE TOP
This year's sophomore football team was one of the toughest teams that has ever come
through GCHS. Their record was 8-1. The defense was a major factor of their success. Being a
blue-collar team — not having the speed and size of other teams — they had to play extra hard
especially when going up against teams like East St. Louis and Belleville East.
The offense came through in clutch situations when they needed to play extra tough to keep
the ball from the opposing team. There were no superstars, but the team played well together.
Sometimes those two factors are more important than speed and power.
Sophomores work hard at this level always with the hope of being called to play varsity. They
receive little recognition but with their ambition, hopes, and dreams, they strive to play varsity.
To all the young boys who tried out and didn't make it, keep your chin up and keep on fighting.
Late bloomers often grow in the summer of their sophomore year and become the new starters
their junior year.
Best of luck in carrying on the Warrior tradition next year. Never forget the phrase in our school
song "but win or lose we'll keep on fighting just the same."

SWINGING INTO ACTION
The 1990 girls tennis team was a group of energetic and optimistic athletes. Together, with
coach Allen Lobdell, the team set goals for a successful season. The long hard hours of
practice and determination paid off, as they compiled a record of 7 wins and 7 losses. Kristi
Holsinger, a senior member of the girls Warrior tennis team, said, 'Tennis has been one of the
major highlights in high school. The friendships will stay with me always."
The experience of the other senior members, such as Hollle Taylor and Addie Lenzi, helped
the girls strive for their seasonal goal. This experience was a dominant factor when the girls
beat East St. Louis 7-0.
With the team consisting of 10 underclassmen, success came through hard work and
determination. With this experience, these girls will see success next year.
The girls developed a friendship. They helped one another at practices and were dedicated
to be the best. Special honors went to Kristi Holsinger for "most valuable" player and Nikki
Petrillo for "most improved" player. Addie Lenzi and Hollie Taylor qualified for state. They also
achieved third place In the sectionals. Addie Lenzi comments "It was a great achievement
for me to go to state my senior year. It was also a memorable experience."
The 13 member tennis team had a surprising season. With 10 returning players in 1991, they
expect to do equally well as they did this season or better.

A SLAMMING GOOD TIME
This year's girls varsity basketball team was made of a combination of experience
ana new talent. With the loss of many key seniors from last year, the team had to work
especially hard to prove themselves in These girls can be found in the gym every
day after school and on weekends practicing hard and learning new skills to help them
perfect their game.
The team was coached by Mr. Allen Lobdell and led by senior co-captains Andrea
Cline and Addie Lenzi. Andrea said, "Being a captain my senior year was a great honor.
We won more games than anyone gave us credit for, partly because we played as a
team." This year's team played with effort and determination and finished their season
with a very impressive record. Coach Lobdell concludes, "This team was a blend of
experience and youth. They learned the meaning of team play and therefore we
should be even stronger next season." by Emily Stitch

SIMPLY SMASHING PERFORMANCE
Before every game, the Warrior varsity volleyball team has a set of rituals to complete before
they can start a game. The final pep talk is led by Coach Natalie Buster in the locker room. The
varsity team begins their warmup with some muscle stretches and a tew jogs around the court.
The captains are called together with the officials, as the remainder of the team begins passing
to warm the skills.
Both the Warrior team and their opponents are called to their benches to discuss the starting
six and the plans tor a victory for the approaching game. The referee blows the whistle for both
teams to line up on the court preparing for the first serve. This is where all the hard work and
practice begins to pay off. , . .
The varsity team ended their season with a 4 win 17 loss record. "Although it wasn t a winning
season, we did make improvements. I have enjoyed my senior year for Coach Buster. I will miss
her and the rest of my teammates,” comments Jennifer Harris.

games as well as the winning ones. We worked as a team no matter what.” Some players were also
chosen to move up to compete at the varsity level. "Both JV and varsity improved from last year. The

season with 16-9 record. Junior Varsity finished with a 4-6 record. Various teams the Granite City
Warriors played against were Roxana, Edwardsvilie, Red Bud, and Alton. The Warriors also

conference, the Warrior team tied for second piace.
The leaders of the team were senior captains, Billy McCormick, Allen Ledbetter, and Dean
Sheikh. Billy McCormick says “Our team this year was surprising. If there was any year for us to
do anything, this was the year. With five returning seniors and some new faces on the team, we
were abie to advance to the sectionais. If it wasn't for the new guys we wouldn't have been able
to do what we achieved this year."
Speciai honors went to Joe Brewer for “most effective". The “most improved" award was to
Ryan Mueiler and Steve Rains. There wili be 20 remaining pius new freshmen to make the 1991

326 CROSS COUNTRY
READY - SET - GO
For some people the thought of running three or four miles is too much work. For
cross country members, it is just a warm up.
Cross country is not one of the big spectator sports at Granite City Fligh School.
But the athletes and participants know it takes a very special and definitely athletic
person to be able to take the heat, sweating, and strain.
This sport, unlike most, is very individual. While running the race, one of the
thoughts running through the athlete's mind is the color of the uniform in front of him.
All they think of is how they could move a little closer to that person and eventually
The athlete has to be in excellent condition to endure some the of long, exhaust-
ing runs. Consequently, the practices consist of running and more running.
Before any of the running begins, there are many preparation stretches to do.
These are always done at practices and meets. Without a good warm-up, injuries
may occur, such as shin splints, pulled muscles, and cramps.
This year, our team has done very well. They have qualified from the regional
meet to the sectional. "We work very hard to get where we are." says Justin
Coaches David McClain and Tom Haeffner have done a very good job of
keeping their runners in excellent shape and spirit. Fernandez
CROSS COUNTRY 327
A TRADITION OF SUCCESS
The 1990 varsity soccer season started off at 12:01 on the morning of August 13 with the
traditional midnight practice. Despite the rainy dreary weather, over 400 loyal fans came out
to the practice to help the Warriors kick off their season. This year's team proved to be as
talented and dedicated as ever.
On October 1 -6 the Tournament of Champions was held on our home field. Here GCHS would
face the toughest teams in the St. Louis area such as Vianney and St. Louis University High.
The Warriors knew they had to puil together in order to win; and they did just that when they
defeated top ranked DeSmet to receive first piace in their own tournament. Coach Gene Baker
said, “Night in and night out, we've piayed the best that this area has to offer and i think we've
responded to that chalienge."
This elite group of athietes will retire 1 7 seniors this year. They are: Rodney Aimos, Brian Buske,
Brian Cholevik, Matt Loftus, Jason Mathenia, Jim McKechan, Jason Nemeth, Brad O'Niel, Ryan
Reeves, Jay Robertson, Jason Scrum, Dan Terrell, and Lariy Wright.
Led by their team captains, who are also seniors. Skip Birdsong, Pat Rich, Jeff Stephens, and
Larry Strader, the soccer Warriors finished their season with an impressive record of 24-3-2.
Skip Birdsong conciudes, “It has been a privilege to be a captain of a team that has
accomplished so mdny great things."

MOVING RIGHT ALONG
It takes a great amount of endurance for a soccer player to handle all of the practice and
hard work needed to put together a winning team. Since it takes all of the players to make
the team a winning success, each player must work hard in order to develop new skills. They
must learn to communicate with each other and work together to back each other up.
The junior varsity soccer team is composed mostly of juniors and sophomores; however, a
few freshman are selected to move up to the J.V. level. With ambition and perseverance,
these young men strive to excel and hope to, one day, carry on Granite City's tradition of
excellence in soccer.
This year was another great year for the junior varsity soccer team. They played hard and
ended their season with 13 wins, two losses, and one tie.
The moral support and helpful advise the players received from Coach Mel Bunting helped
to achieve such an impressive record. Coach Bunting concludes, "I am very proud of the
team's hard work and I look forward to seeing how they play at the varsity level."

HOPE FOR THE FUTURE
Soccer is a game that requires strategy, control, and skill. The freshman soccer team
possesses all of these traits. The team did exceptionally well this year due to the fact that they
put in many long hours of practice both after school and on weekends preparing for their
season. The boys found that high school practices were much more strenuous than at the
junior high level, This hard work obviously paid off when the freshman team finished their first
high school season with a record of 9-4-1. They had three shutouts and scored a total of 39
The dedicated man that made such a successful season possible was the freshman coach,
Mr. David Ames. Coach Ames is greatly respected by each and every member of the team.
Mark Winfield says, “Coach Ames taught the team well and I feel we related well with each
other." Brian Kohler adds, "It was a lot of fun playing for Coach Ames, He's a great coach, I
always had a fun time at practices, except for when we had to run killers,"
Coach Ames concludes, “This year's freshman team proved that they were a good team
based on their record and level of competition they faced. They can look forward to having
great seasons in the future and that's good for the entire soccer program."

On Thursday November 1 , the soccer Warriors set off to St. Charles ready to defend their title
as State Champions. Fanatic Warrior fans followed the next day bringing with them their
school spirit, lots of energy, and high hopes of another victory.
The Warriors' first opponent in the tournament was Naperville North. A single goal scored by
Skip Birdsong was enough to edge by Naperville for our first win. The next game, played
Saturday afternoon, kept the fans on the edge of their seats. Everyone kept their fingers
crossed as the scoreless game between Granite City and St. Charles went into a penalty-kick
shootout. With a blocked shot by goalkeeper Tim Henson, and perfect penalty shots by Skip
Birdsong, Brent Dippel, Jim McKechan, Ryan Reeves, and Jeff Stephens, the Warriors defeated
St. Charles and advanced to the championship game.
The Warriors found themselves in a do or die situation as they took the field against Evanston.
Hundreds of excited Warrior fans filled the bleachers anxious to see another victory. All of the
concentration and perseverance paid off when Granite City beat the previously undefeated
Evanston 3-1 and brought home the state championship title for the second year in a row
giving us a total of ten state championships.

right up there with the best because the Chicago teams did not think we could win this year.

The junior varsity wrestling team worked very hard through-
out the season on and off the mat. Practices were very hard
and time consuming, but ail was worthwhile when the team
or individual won at the meets.
Wrestling on the Warrior team took much dedication. Being
on the junior varsity team prepared the athiete for next year.
Many JV wrestling participants continue and become varsity
piayers. It becomes a most exciting part of their life and their

ALWAYS MAKING TRACKS
As the fun flared, loud shouts from the fans and coaches roared and the adrenaline of the boys track team
rose as they raced toward the finish line. With high goals in mind, the team set out to have an excellent season.
"With ten hard work-outs we have had this year, we have became a much more competitive tfock
comments Dan Brazee. The long hours after school and the strenuous work-outs were not the only thing that
it took to become a successful athlete. The boys also had to watch their diets very carefully. ....
Track consisted of many different events. The boys could choose from events such as hurdles, high jumj^
sprints long distances, shot put, and discus. The men who coached these boys were James Harsh, David
McClain, Melvin Bunting, Michael Garland, and Dale Rice. nifforont
These coaches proved to be very important members of the team. They showed the athletes different
techniques in improving their skills and strengthening their muscles.
"The coaches made the team work harder this year but it paid off in the end, said Larry Strader. The
coaches give the athletes the moral support needed to do well in their event.
For the girls, determination, hard work, practices, and good tennies were important factors needed for track.
Whether it be iong distance, short distance, shot put, discus or high jump, the practices help them prepare
for the challenge that was ahead. The sport was a team sport, but also allowed the girls to individually excel.
"Dedication, from the girls helped make it a more interesting sport. It really is no fun if you are there just to
run " said Carrie Brown. Beth Bolandis states, "The challenge from this sport helps build your confidence and
lets you set higher goals for yourself." Discus thrower, Vicky Brandt says, "It takes of hard work and long hours

At the end of a slow starting season with 9 seniors and 14 juniors, the varsity Warriors
finished with a record of 16 - 8. The coaches of this successful team were Robert Stegemier
and Gus Lignoul. These exciting games were all played at the varsity diamond.
Baseball is a sport which exhibits players individual talents, The 1990 baseball team
proved that a group of individuals can form one highly skilled team. Drills and hard practices
enabled them to be quite competitive both defensively and offensively. This team practiced
after school nearly every evening and sometimes even before school.
The starting position at the mound was sometimes a mystery since the team had so many
qualified players. David Boley, Chris Hill, and Mike Nordstrom displayed their pitching arms
sufficiently; while Brian Harshany and Rich Schardan played to their full potential at any
Every player contributed to the baseball team the entire season. They worked together
boosting spirits, easing tenses, and encouraging each other. This was what was needed to
make the Warrior baseball team so successful.
by Melissa Tapp
It takes a team of nine athletic team players who mastered the skill of working together
to make a team successful. With the season record of the freshman and sophomore
baseball teams, it is obvious that these boys have done just that. The freshman team ended
their year with 15 wins and one loss. The coach who was in charge of putting this all together
was Coach Jerry McKechan.
The sophomore baseball team was coached by Coach Don Harris. This team had 1 1 wins
and 5 losses. They also competed in a sophomore tournament hosted at the Warrior varsity
diamond. They proudly placed second in this tournament.
Randy Scott says, "The best game this season was against Bellevilie West. We were tied
11-11, and I sacrificed moving runners to both second and third base. This allowed Chris
Hildreth to get the winning RBI."
These two baseball teams have put much effort and practice into their season. The result
of all this hard work has definitely paid off with their winning record.

THE DANCE OF THE DECADE
The 1990 senior prom was a long awaited evening. This event took place at the Pipefitters
Hall on April 21, 1990. The girls had their dresses made months in advance. Guys also had
tuxedos rented and reservations made months in advance.
As tradition had it, many prom attenders visited the park first to have pictures taken and
visit with friends.
Limousines started arriving at Pipefitters Hall around 5:30 and prom was concluded at
For many seniors, this was their first prom. Some sophomores and juniors attended the
prom. Tim Noud says, "The prom was absolutely incredible! Waiting until my senior year was
the best part of it. A good time is almost guaranteed." Jerry Richardson adds, "Going to
prom my junior and senior year was fun because everything I didn't do my junior year, I could
do my senior year."
There will be many proms to come, but the one of 1990 will be remembered in the minds
of seniors as nothing but fun.

A FESTIVE EVENING
The seniors who attended the 1990 prom were not the only ones who had a good time.
Contrary to many students' belief, adults enjoy an occasional 'evening out.' The prom was
such a glorious night out for everyone who attended.
Seniors found the evening enjoyable and had a variety of reasons for this fun-filled night.
Angela Judd said that "the decorations were beautiful." Other seniors liked the disc jockey,
the delicious food, having the opportunity to have their photographs taken with their
sweetheart, and getting the opportunity to wear beautiful clothing.
Administrators also enjoyed the entire evening. Mr. Whitaker says that "it's nice to see the
students dressed up and having a good time," and Mr. Kennerly adds that he likes the
chance for the student "to see me as a friend and person instead of as an admiriistrator."
An evening like this always is a special one for everyone. Mr. Painter believes that "anytime
you are with your boyfriend or girlfriend at an event of this nature is a memorable occasion."
All of the administrators seem to agree that the prom has come a long way. The prom
used to be held in the high school gym and tickets cost less than $20. Memories, fancy
clothes, and all of the fun has remained the same though. Prom of today is just as special
as the proms they attended.

TIME TO SAY GOOD-BYE
Graduation can be described as the iast day of the beginning of a student's iife. As a freshman,
just entering high schooi, one shyly wanders through the jammed hallways searching for the right
classroom, This worried freshman would never consider being late to his next math class. This student
can be called the well prepared student. As a sophomore, the student soon becomes more
confident. He begins to find the shortcuts to class and talks to friends along the way. The sophomore
can be called the efficient student.
As a junior, the student is now an upperclassman. This student wanders the hall, but not looking
for the next class, the shortcuts are used. A pen and paper usually has to be borrowed from another
student. The junior can be called the experimenting student.
Finally, the student has spent the fastest four years of his life in the halls of a high school he will never
forget. Good times and friends definitely outweighed all the term papers, pop quizzes, and final
exams. This student is finally a senior, and has become aware of all his future beholds and tries to
make the most to prepare for it in high school. A senior can be called the maturing adult.
Graduation was the final step for this student to approach before his life really begins to soar in
the direction he wants. This big day was held June 1, 1990, at the Warrior football stadium for the
freshman who entered high school in 1986. Seniors, wearing their caps and gowns, marched down
to their seats as "Pomp and Circumstance" began to play.
All rose in honor of the American flag as Keri Lewis sang "The Star Spangled Banner". An Invocation
to begin the ceremony was lead by Reverend David Fielding. Mr. Kenneth Spalding greeted all in
attendance with an opening speech. Final words of inspiration were given to the graduates by
Superintendent Gilbert Walmsiey, and the floor was handed over to Board of Education president,
The moment of final accomplishment and anticipation of these graduating seniors had finally
arrived. The distribution of the diplomas were next on the agenda. The administrative staff and the
board members readied themselves to begin handing the diplomas to each graduate. The smiles
on the faces of these seniors grasping their diplomas and shaking each person's hand is one all the
graduating participates will remember for days to come.
Mr. Spalding concluded the graduation with a short congratulations and his final good-bye. This
is just one more class of individuals that made its way through the Granite City High School to move
on to the best future that they can make.

deadlines, interviews, and photo sessions to reach the last page of this 398-page Warrior edition.
Oniy Melissa Tapp was a returnee from iast year's staff. To Carrie Owen, Emily Stitch, Leah
Schuman, Angeia Judd, Juiie Fernandez, Angeia Withers, Kristin Jenness, Liz Harris, and Kendra
Boyer, yearbook was a totally new experience. It was more work, time, and effort than they could
The large task of putting together this large of a book sometimes became overwhelming too,
for such a smaii staff. A staff, however, was not oniy dedicated to putting out a first-class edition,
but aiso was invoived in participating in numerous other school activities and organizations. They
put in endless hours with nothing to show for the work until the end of the school year when the
book finally became published.
Newspaper people had had the gratification of seeing their work pubiished periodically.
Yearbook staffers had to wait until the end of the year, making it difficuit to maintain the
momentum necessary to complete the job. They did, however, keep going and going.
They iearned leadership, computer skilis, management, photography, graphics, and initiative.
Through this, they learned dedication. They created new concepts and turned their dreams into
This yearbook is, indeed, the project of a staff involved, active, and dedicated to the
publication of one of the finest possibie Warrior editions.
"I really enjoyed being part of the staff. This year
was an experience I will never forget. Putting the
1991 yearbook together was hard work and a lot of
fun." . . . KRISTIN JENNESS
"Being on the yearbook staff was an experi-
ence I'll always remember. Working to meet
all the deadlines was well worth the wait."
... LIZ HARRIS
'Tve enjoyed working with everyone to
make the 1991 yearbook a success. It
has taken long hours of hard work to
make sure deadlines were met, but I'm
sure everyone would agree it was worth
it. We have had many memorable expe-
riences together this year. I will never
forget my junior year and the yearbook
staff." . . . KENDRA BOYER
“Being on the yearbook staff
my senior year was a great
experience. The memories and
the friendships I have gained
will last forever. I'm glad I had
the opportunity and I
encourage any underclass
person to be on it if they have
the chance." . . . .ANGELA
“Our goal was to put the
memories of this year together, so
that we could later look back
and remember the best years of
our lives. The staff worked well
together. It was an experience
that I learned a great deal from
and will never forget." . . . LEAH
"I enjoyed working with
everyone on the yearbook
staff. It was a great experi-
ence. Many people don't
realize all the work that has
to be done and all of the
hours spent after school.
Even though it got pretty
rough at times. I really en-
joyed it, and would do it all
over again. I hope next
year everyone has just as
much fun as we did and
they make all their dead-
lines." . . . JULIE FERNANDEZ
"Being on the yearbook staff gave
me a chance to write about clubs
and sports. I was happy to be a part
of the yearbook family. It took a
while to get the yearbook
completed, but when all the
yearbook staff pulled together and
shared the responsibility, our mission
was successful.” . . . ANGELA JUDD
"When I signed up to be
on the yearbook staff, I did
not quite realize just how
much work I was in for. Year-
book is not just roaming the
halls for two hours a day, like
some people would like to
believe. It's hours and hours
of writing, editing, and in-
dexing, both during and af-
ter school. But, I feel that all
of the hardwork put in by
this dedicated staff has
paid off. The memories I
have made during year-

"When I joined

realized how much
work it would be. It
was a new
fun to do. The staff
was great and we
all got along well"

"I have honestly learned a great deal being part of the Warrior yearbook staff for the past two years. Many
memories have enhanced my junior year, and especially my senior year. Some great friendships have formed
and a closeness that I will never forget. This 398 yearbook has taken many long hours, much hard work, and
quite a bit of pizza to complete. But through it all, it was well worth it. Thanks to everyone who made it all
possible. Good luck to Leah, Carrie, Emily, Julie, and Angie in everything they may pursue. To the juniors, whom
I wish all the great times that I experienced; and with the help of DPS, it was all made possible." . . . MELISSA
