S MOTIVATION, DEDICATION
Millie Neplon maintaining Mr Will S alienion smiles at comments sard in
her Hislor, class as Ruin Benilez IOoks on
Striving For Perfection!
Mr. Will, a CHS graduate, received the honor of having the
1991 Caribbean yearbook dedicated to him because he is
not only dedicated in school, but in the community as well.
Mr. Bill Will is known to be a sincere person who is always
willing to help others. Not only is he favored by his peers, but
by his students.
"Mr. Will has always been real strict with students who
misbehave in class or on the field," siad Ralph Galarza, "but
he's real fun to be around though!"
Along with the serious commitment to teaching, he seems to
have a funny and more relaxed side. Mrs. Baitel said, "Mr.
Will's hyperactivity is due to his caffeine addiction!"
Mr. Will is known to be a very "good coach" and is very
supportive of all Cristobal sports.
"Mr. Will is a great coach," said Bryan Richardson, "He's
always there when you need some advice on what to do
Mr. Will is among the many teachers who have brought
warmth and great teaching to the students here at CHS.
Mr. Will gives Bryan Richardson advice before the next game, as Wendy
Franceschi listens intently.
Mr. Will shows his class some interesting places on a map, while taking time
to show his enjoyment of teaching.

Senior Thoughts Flow And Create...
I A POOL OF REFLECTION
Senior flex-ability is awesome!!
It's hard to say goodbye for the three years I have been in C.H.S.,
getting to know the students that have made me see the world of
friendship. I will always have C.H.S. in my mind in the bad moments and
good moments of my life.
As I look back upon the last six years of my life at CHS, I relive
the many memories in my mind. When I think about how I'm
going to have to say goodbye to them soon, I can feel tears in
my eyes. These tears remind me of a night when not only was I,
but everyone else, was crying too. It was the night of the
Homecoming game in my Junior year. Not only this, but so many
other memories are cherished in my heart. "Nothing is waste that
makes a memory."
I will forever cherish the family unity that C.H.S. has weaved
around me. The feelings of closeness, whether it was during a
basketball game with only 30 seconds left, or a volleyball match
full of tears after beating the undefeated team. Here in this school
there has always been a sense of family and for that I thank
C.H.S. for being there always when I needed it.
Those smiling faces, that warming hug of acceptance I doubt I'll
ever see again. It's brought a change in my life, and I've found
something I never thought I had before. I feel as if I've flown
through the days without a moment of being alone. I wish I didn't
have to leave, but I need to find it again. I will, I know I will,
because once you've had something so good, it never totally goes
I'll always remember the unity of
the students as far as being a
whole. C.H.S. is a school where
you are accepted for yourself. I'd
like to say good-bye to my friends
I have grown to love, and I live for
the day when we will reunite as a
whole. We leave the families of
Panama, Cnstobal High School,
and friends, but the memories will
always exist in our hearts. It's up
to us to keep them alive, for that's
what will keep us going. Until we
meet again ...
(above) "Tell me you didn't just take that picture," pleads Lutcia Pedersen. (right) Roving reporter Wendy
Francheschi pauses to pose while covering a football game.
The one thing that I will never forget about Cristobal High School is the friendship.
I'll miss going by the hallway greeting people or the opposite. The friendship of
Cristobal's students is not one easy to find everywhere. The way I feel about
being in Cristobal is of being involved with a big family. Since we are a family, I
will never be out of touch with Cristobal. Sometimes when we say, "Cristobal" it
feels like if we were talking about a big person, but there is something for sure,
and it is that I will come back someday.
Everything today made me want to be with everyone again. I
heard a song on the radio that reminded me of a time when we
were all together, and I wanted to be with everyone to share it
again. I heard a story that made me laugh, and I knew that
everyone would think it was funny, too. I wanted so much to tell it
to everyone. When I was all alone, I thought how much nicer it
would be if everyone was there. All my daydreams were about
everyone, about where we'd been and where we're going. I
wanted to tell everyone about them because I knew they would
make those dreams more real. Every time I thought about
everyone today, I thought about how much I missed everyone,
and how much I wanted us to be together again.
Fightin' from the bottom of the pile, kickin' and scratchin', and in a rush,
like lightning we become the top. The pain, the sweat, and at times
blazes of anguish were almost unbearable, but they're nothing compared
to the honor, glory, and unity we shared. Yes, we cried at times, hurt at
others, and hated in a few, but we re-established our name and set our
school back on top. We came together as separate people, ideas, and
goals, and became a unit, a group, a team. As Public Enemy said and
we found out, "United we stand, divided we fall, and, yes, together we all
FREEZE-FRAME! Vicki Seeley, caught in the act, on
her most familiar stage.
I will always have a special place my heart
for the laughter and excitement provided from
my C.H.S. friends. How could I forget those
everlasting moments, from three-second
touchdowns to stressful deadlines. I treasure
my high school days and haven't regretted a
moment. To my friends who I will leave behind;
I have one message "Enjoy life, this is not a
A memory that I will always have of
Cristobal High School is the closeness of
the people. All the people are like a family
and when you have a problem, everyone
is concerned in helping you through the
hard times. Along with the kids and my
friends, the faculty is great and
encourages you to do the best for your
future. I feel very fortunate to have gone
to this school.

Beneath the bright blue sky, I am sitting, surrounded by my thoughts. Slowly drifting away,
suddenly a loud noise causes my body to jump. I look up beside me, I see the sparkling blue
pool. Reflecting in it are the tall green trees around it. I look up into the sky and see butterflies
bouncing around in the air, aimlessly flying nowhere; bees are racing by busily; and birds are
perched in the swaying branches of trees, singing melodiously. I look out, beyond the stone wall
that encloses my backyard, and see the fuschia, violet, and apricot flowers of the bougainvillea
bushes, growing from the thick green grass, I see where the grass meets the jungle of massive
palm, mango, and other tropical trees, and as I look past the giant mass of trees, beyond the
small poverty stricken towns, I see the Atlantic Ocean and the neverending horizon. It's glistening
in the bright morning sun and I think to myself what a gorgeous day it is. You an always tell
when it is Christmas time in Panama.
My body jerks suddenly, as I hear the sound again. This time, it pulls me out of the world I have
been in. Totally oblivious to my surroundings, I hear the sound again. Looking down at the city
almost ten miles away, it looks so peaceful, but once again the shrill sound pierces my heart, and
I know that this serene looking city is in a state of disaster. I find it so hard to believe that this
quiet place where nothing ever happens is in the middle of a war.
The strong winds blows; chills run down my spine. As I sit down in the green blanket of grass, I
hear the sporadic gunfire, but it is in the distance; now there is a louder sound. I look up to see
a helicopter flying overhead, and three waving arms, of soldiers saying "Hello," and "Goodbye."
As I blink back my tears, I go inside my house and the image of soldiers saying goodbye flashes
on the television screen. Their faces are blurred and gray, but the image is strong. An army
soldier and his wife are in a strong embrace, tears streaming from their eyes. They may be
saying goodbye for the last time.
As I close my eyes, I can faintly hear the newscaster saying "Soldiers say goodbye before going
to Panama to fight in "Operation Just Cause." Feeling as if I had just been injected with poison,
rushing through my body, seeping into my blood stream, it takes only a few seconds to realize
death will be the only consequence. Looking around me I can only see tranquility, but I know
inside of me there is a mad rush of poison; the strong realization of what is happening in my
country hits me. As the poison reaches my heart, I gasp for my last breath, and my naivete dies.
I leave the room, but the image is still frozen in my mind. Forever.

I JUNIORS SPEAK OUT...
For a long time differences of opinions on teenage drinking have been expressed. Some
students think it's alright while others are saying no! There are conflicting opinions as to
whether students should drink or not.
"I feel drinking among students is a personal choice. If a student wants to drink, he or she
may do so," commented Kevin Akers.
On the otherhand, some students feel drinking can cause accidents that may hurt others.
"Drinking can cause good students to loose track of the most important aspect in their life
- EDUCATION. Some students tend to drink and drive not realizing the danger. What if
someone you love got killed by a drunk? It wouldn't be funny any longer, would it?" replied
Obviously there is a big difference in opinions, but the only question is who's right and

A Mere Success!
The class of 1992 worked hard to beautify the
Cristbal Junior/Senior High school during the
month of November. They came up with the idea
just before the Homecoming game and dance.
Several juniors along with a few seniors worked
hard on weekends to help improve the Tiger
territory. Students were motivated by their sponsor
Mrs. Rozette and were "kicked into action" with
her guidance and full encouragement.
"Students were motivated solely by the
opportunity to wake up early on a Saturday
morning and sweat in the hot sun for the sake of
beautifying our beloved school. Working under the
orders bellowed by Mrs. Rozette, lazy students
were kicked into action by the boots of
leadership," replied junior Kevin Akers.

Perceptions, First Impressions,
Time seemed to fly by as hundreds of people filled the stands
the night of the 41st Jamboree. Nervous football players sat
quietly, stretching and pondering on thoughts that would psych
their minds before the opening game.
Their perceptions towards the Tigers' success were as varied as
the number of people who came through the gates.
"I have to admit," commented Oscar Reyes," I was a bit
concerned on whether or not the team would actually pull
together and win a game, especially after our loss to Cougars,
but as the night went on, things started to 'click' for all of us."
Jamboree has been a tradition at Cristobal for 41 years, but for
many of our new students, it was a "unique experience."
"I was so excited about being able to participate in the
Jamboree this year, I guess because in the states, activities
such as these weren't very common. It's all been a very
cherishable and very unique experience that I'll carry with me
for the rest of my life," said Bryan Richardson.
The Tigers started off on a bad note but ended tying for
second in the end. To kick off for the Tigers, CHS faced the
Curundu Cougars. Despite their loss to the Cougars, the team
showed their Tiger pride and determination. During the second
and third quarters, the Tigers fought their way to maintain the
tied score of 0-0. In the fourth game the Cristobal Tigers
triumphed over the Red Machine. James Howell, #34, scored
the winning touchdown, leading the Tigers to a 6-0 victory.
"Jamboree for me was a very grand experience. Along with the
Cayuco races from the past, and the ladies," commented
James Howell, "Jamboree was the greatest part of being a
"Although I never got into the dirty, roughness of football,"
said Jennifer Rankin, "as a manager, I, too, saw the strengths

CRISTOBAL HIGH SCHOOL I
Drifting With The Military Tide
Since it's opening, in 1921, Cristobal High School
has been mainly a military school; thus, it has always
been influenced by military actions throughout the
world. When the canal was built and the military was
sent to protect the Americans operating the canal, a
school system was needed to educate the American
youth in the Panama Canal Zone; Cristobal was
opened for the Americans on the Atlantic side of the
With its role as a DoDDS school, comes the
necessary flexibility created by the continual arrival
and departure of students. Every student is touched
by this whirlpool; if a student has not moved several
times, himself, he has at least experienced the pain
of losing friends and the bittersweet joy of making
new friends, knowing they will move away in a few
short years. Teachers are forced to discern the level
of schooling each new student has had in the past
and adjust to their needs, whether they are great or
Throughout the years, political unrest in Panama has
often closed school, interrupting finals, sport seasons
and schooling, in general. This was true during last
year's operation "Just Cause," which brought about
the military occupation of the third floor of CHS.
Sharing CHS with the soldiers made the deaths of
"Just Cause" seem more real to the students; Joce
Borsellino said, "We had a chance to get close to
the soldiers staying in the school, so it was scary
watching the news and thinking maybe one of their
names would show up."
This year's operation "Desert Shield/Storm" has
touched many of the students at CHS; remembering
their friends and family members in the Persian Gulf,
causes every student to reconsider their values and
ideals. Those students who were a part of operation
"Just Cause" cannot forget the deaths, or the
soldiers they became friends with, wondering who
will die this time.
CHS students cannot ignore military actions and
concerns, as they are directly affected by them.
Instead, they are faced daily with concerns about the
war "Will someone I know have to go? Will
anyone I know die? Will I have to go and fight?" As
the war with Iraq continues, CHS will feel it even
more as loved ones go to the gulf and budget
cuts are made.
Soldiers from Charlie Company, 4/17 Battalion, Buffaloes, shake hands with stu-
dents arriving for the assembly the school held in order to say goodbye to these
soldiers who had been their "neighbors."
Due to the strong military influence on CHS, the JROTC program is a very important
part of the student life.
I HOMECOMING. .
A Night To Be Remembered!
The 1990 Homecoming game, with all of the spirit
and strong support of football players, coaches, cheer-
leaders, and loyal fans was an overall success. The
Tigers gave Red the ultimate thrashing as CHS ended
the game 19-0. Along with the hustle, determination,
and support from the rest of the team, Luigi Armuelles
and Bryan Richardson helped to attain the 19-0 win.
During halftime, the senior class with the theme
Watch Cristobal's Pride, Fry Balboa High, won the over-
all hall decoration and parade contest. The Tiger did
"fry" Balboa High but before the game the 1990 Home-
coming Queen, Vicky Seely, and court were an-
nounced. Following the Queen, the homecoming court
with Adrianne Holmes, Wendy Franceschi, Beverly
Teal, and Manal Shihab entered.
Due to SAT tests the homecoming dance was post-
poned to November 10 a week after the game. The
dance, filled with both students and tentative parents,
was a night to be remembered by all who attended.

seen paddling hard, getting sponsors, and working on
their boats. All paddlers agreed that organization, com-
mitment, support and enjoyment before and during the
race helped to pull them through the 'rough times.'
"If it wasn't for the great support and commitment from
everyone around, I honestly don't believe my crew
would have been this successful," said Vicki Seeley.
The 1991 Cayuco races was held on March 22, 23, 24.

When school began, we were just nine students
who loved music, many of whom had never received
any previous choral training. Mr. Hashman, full of
enthusiasm, who not daunted by this; he jumped in
and began to teach us the music and the art of
performing, forcing us to overcome our stage fright.
After many hours of repetition, frustration and
perspiration, Mr. Hashman succeeded, transforming
group. Bev Teal's statement, "His confidence in us,
as a new group, has made us dedicated to him and
to ALL THAT JAZZ," does not even begin to
describe the support, encouragement and instruction
he's given us.
It has not been all work and no play; it has been

BOYS' TENNIS. ..
MAKING' A RACKET!
The 1991 CHS boy's tennis season was full
of learning experiences for both players and
coach alike. With only three players return-
ing from last year, the majority of the Tiger
tennis team had yet to play the sport at the
beginning of the season. Even the coach,
Kenneth Youkin, hailing from Daytona, Flor-
ida, was new to coaching the sport. Youkin,
head of the art department at Cristobal, de-
scribes the group as, "overall, a young
team, with some individuals with lots of po-
tential and talent who will be with us for a
few more years to come." Kent Grubbs,
seeded first, and Kenneth Palumbo, seeded
second, were the dominant players, leading
the team through match after match. With

more, we can look forward in future years to

These words all come to mind when at-

Through wins and losses alike, these girls have
continually shown the Tiger mentality that winning
isn't everything, and that having fun is one of the
most important parts of the game. With players
like Bev Teal, the captain of the "eating team,"
and Lutcia Pedersen, who moved especially well
with firecrackers tied to her shoes, laughs were
never far behind. "The girls were always very in-
volved, not only in tennis, but other things like
boyfriends and the cayuco race," said coach Troy
Oliver. In fact, eight out of the ten players were in
the race, tightening up their schedule consider-
ably. "Even though we haven't had a winning sea-
son, it's been fun having a fly for a coach!" re-
marked Bev Teal.

"I know lots of girls are already excited for tryouts and
the new season. With that enthusiasm, we're already
ahead of the game," said Mrs. Rankin.
As all coaches, Mrs. Rankin had her own expectations
for the returning letterman. The knowledge and perfec-
tion of the basic fundamentals seemed to be greatly
stressed. Being more accurate on spikes, jumping high-
er, quick feet and hands, and setting were only a few of
the aspects stressed.

teem will help to maintain a strong and successful sea-

can be. Teamwork, hustle, ride will prevail," said Mrs.

I won't wish you luck in college
because you don't need it. You'll do fine!
Hope there's lots of success, happiness
and great memories.
I love you,

It seems to happen overnight ... the
little girl grows up, and in her place a
lovely woman stands. It fills the heart with
love and pride to see all she's become, to
know she holds the future in her hands.
And remember ... no matter what life
brings, you will always be our daughter.
Love, Mom and Dad
We're proud of the way you're growing
up. We admit we still worry at times
because the world has changed a lot
since you were born. We haven't always
agreed with your decisions, but we hope
you know that we respect your courage
and independence in making them. You're
doing all you can to be the person you
want to be, and we admire that ...
Love, Mom and Dad
As you step into the fu-
ture, always remember the
roads you have travelled
and the lessons learned.
Take with you our love and
support and your faith. You
will always be successful.
Mom and Dad
We are all so proud of you. You have
given us much joy during these last eighteen
years. Wishing you a bright and happy fu-
ture. We will always be here for you!
