Cloudy skies and chilly temperatures didn’t lessen the enthusiasm of West Campus students at Field Day provided the opportunity to drag each other through the mud, spray each other with water and hit each other with eggs.

The Sept. 12 event feature such competition as the wheelbarrow race, an egg toss, a tug-of-war and the Foxt Hunt. Each of the 13 shops competed in the events with Welding taking first place overall. Cosmetology and Culinary Arts tied for second.

A hamburger fry followed the contests with students getting a package deal of a hamburger, potato chips and a coke for 60 cents. Mrs. Josephine Clark, chief cook, estimated that over 300 hamburgers were sold.

According to Mrs. Donna Danner, VICA coordinator, Field Day was designed to encourage competition between shops and generate interest in VICA.

Top Dog

Although the purpose of class officers has never been too clearly defined and many people didn’t even know who their class officers were, one responsibility these leaders had was to organize their class float.

Elected during the fourth week of school, East Campus senior officers were John Horn, president; Jeff Thomas, vice-president; and Shelley Faddis, secretary-historian.

West Campus held their own elections again this year. The officers were Gary Fife, president; Debra Bell, vice-president; Linda Denny, secretary; Kim Taylor, treasurer; and James Vansandt, parliamentarian.

Shelley summed up the feelings of most of the officers when she said, “I feel it is a very honorable position. I am looking forward to serving my fellow students, especially since we’re seniors. I enjoyed working on the float because it was my last chance to work as a group with all my friends.”
