Seniors of ’76 are Special

Graduation. It’s hard to believe that the seniors are really going to be graduating. It doesn’t seem long ago that they first came to G.C.H.S.  The friends they’ve made during their first years have been the ones that have meant the most to them.  We have all shared many happy times together, and with each passing year they’ve added more memories to recall with pleasure and nostalgia.

After graduation they will go their separate ways, perhaps never to see many of their friends again for years.

Therefore, it is important to realize the many friends that one does have and to value those friendships.

They will be making many new friends but the SENIOR CLASS OF ’76 will always mean something special to us.

As a Senior: what I'll miss most

Being around friends
Mr. Hale-what a laugh
Hot Lunches (ha-ha)
Skipping-which is one thing I won't be able to do in college
Drinking every weekend
7th hour study hall
Being superior to everyone else
Eating 'canteen' breakfasts at 8:30

Getting to school at 8:35
Parking in the 'privileged persons' parking lot
Going to work on Work Study
All the latest gossip
Being first in the lunch line
All the wonderful (!!!) sophomores and Juniors

School has been lots of laughs to the Class of '76. No matter how hard they worked or how they got their kicks


To Phillip and Steve it meant the honor roll with schemes along the way

To Mike C., it was nothing more than just a skipping day

To Gary M., it meant sports and girls and cutting up in class

To Kent it was seeing how many girls to whom he could make a pass

To Melodye, it was happy times and watching all the boys

To Anthony, it meant being frivolous and making lots of noise

To Nixon, it was lots of giggles and lots of funny laughs

To Crystal, it was yearbook staff and taking photographs

To Mike S., it was cattle and taking FFA

To Teresa, it was being coach while in the Junior play

To Dean S., it was something extra added-being married

And Jacque will never forget all the books she had to carry

To Chuck, it meant discovering what Algebra is all about

To Burke, well he just couldn't wait until the time that school was out

To Laurie, it meant being Homecoming queen and having lots of fun

And Keith created arguments which of course he always won

To Sherri and Terri, it meant always being stereotyped as 'a twin'

To Doug, it was the same routine over and over again

To Bryan, it was being the best artist of all

To Rich, it meant wishing that he were really tall

To Todd, it was having a Caprice while striving for a Corvette

To Mark, it meant acting up with his ever-present wit

To Karen, it was being engaged and playing in the band

To Larry, it was walking with Kris down the hall

And Bussey was quiet and solemn (ha!) but really a demon a heart


And you think you've seen the last of us but this is just the start!
