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
next!"

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.
-Kaled Saker


4'


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."

-Adrianne Holmes


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.

-Jessica Layne


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
away.


-Deborah Rabago

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 ...
-Bev Teal

(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.


-Faizal Waked


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.

-Bryan Richardson




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
stand tall."


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
dress rehearsal!"

-Vicki Seeley






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.

-Ponell Millar


James Howell hides from the masses in the corner, as if he were the
public enemy.

was lost." Ponell Millar smiles at a Ben Franklin quote
while browsing in the library.

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
Jennifer Rankin.

Obviously there is a big difference in opinions, but the only question is who's right and
whose wrong?

TREE PAINTING...


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.

With all of the hard work and determination, both
the tree painting and Homecoming were a
success.

FOCUS ON ARGELIS

Argelis Rivas, a recreation assistant here at Cristobal for five
years, was shot above the knee during Operation "Just Cause."
Argelis was attempting to reach Margarita, on December 20,
1989, when she heard someone tell her to stop. When she failed
to stop, her car was fired on. One of the bullets went through her
left leg. She spent about one and a half months in the hospital
and underwent six operations on her leg. Argelis is thankful that
she has both of her legs and is able, once again, to play
basketball.






LET'S MAKE MUSIC!

Cristobal High had a new mu-
sic teacher this year. Mr,
Hashman, who taught in.
Mounllake Terrace. Washing-
ton. for the last five years,
came to Panama because he
wanted to live in another coun-
try. Mr. Hashman started a

cess. Next year's group looks
: : to be as good.

S. IJAMBOREE...


Perceptions, First Impressions,


Final Recollection.

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
senior!"
"Although I never got into the dirty, roughness of football,"
said Jennifer Rankin, "as a manager, I, too, saw the strengths
and courage build in each of the football players and I'm very
proud of all of them!"


Tear'em up Tigers!
Tigers, supported by the cheerleaders, show off their rough and tough sides as
they tear through the banner on Jamboree Night.

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
isthmus.

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
small.

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.

I CAYUCO
For the past 38 years the Cayuco races have been a
part of the lives of many. The biggest challenge to most
CHS students is the physical, mental, and social as-
pects. The overall reason for student participation is for
the competition.

"I love the sport because of it's unique and binding
team effort! I love the great competition," said Beverly
Teal.

The enthusiasm was in the air since the first announce-
ment concerning the Cayuco races. All crews, both new
and old began to prepare for the races. Crews were
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.
Although the stress of getting prepared lurked, all stu-
dents were glad the race was finished.

ALL THAT JAZZ


Sending Soundwaves Across Panama.

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
an adventure as well as a learning experience. Luiggi
Armuelles said, "ALL THAT JAZZ makes me come
alive," and he's right; it makes us all come alive.
Laurie Wyrick, confident in the group's success,
says, "Just wait till next year; we're going to knock
everyone's socks off!"

Intensity and fierce determination rocked
C.H.S. Tiger Stadium throughout the 1990
football season. For the second year the
Tigers continued a winning tradition with a
five and three season.

Inexperience was to be the Tiger's
greatest weakness, but time and time
again the team exhibited character and
composure. Quarterback Ricky Alvarez led
the team in yards passing while senior
running back Bryan Richardson ran for a
spectacular 1,000 yards this season. In _
the three losses the Tiger defense only
gave up a total of twenty-one points. In
essence the Tigers were kept from going
undefeated by three touchdowns.

The 1990 girls' basketball team
rode high on the waves of
success this season. For the
sixth consecutive year, the
Cristobal girls have remained
undefeated. The players
continuously exhibited grace and
agility on the court, while
remaining tough and aggressive.
The team's skillful ball handling
and guidance from coaches
Gayle Rankin and Rico Atherly
made the ultimate winning
combination.


At the end of the season, the
varsity team's record remained
unblemished and the junior
varsity went seven and one. The
girls captured both the first place
team trophy and the tournament
trophy. Three players on the
Tiger team were also chosen as
All-lsthmian players: Wendy
Franceschi, Megan Gibbons, and
Jessica Layne. As a result of this
team's hard work and
determination, the girls
consistently took it to the hoop!

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
Kent, a freshman, and Kenneth, a sopho-
more, we can look forward in future years to
Isthmian domination by the boy's Tiger ten-
nis team.

GIRLS' TENNIS


KEEPING A GRIP ON THINGS.

Variety ... Involvement ... Companion-
ship ... FOOD!

These words all come to mind when at-
tempting to describe the girls' tennis team
this past year.

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.
Jessica Layne shows with her forehand return why she was the
top player on the team.

In 1989 Operation Just Cause
brought a halt to our quest for
the championship. This year
we set out to complete that
quest in a full season. Our de-
fense remained aggressive
while the offense raised their
goal per game from one to
two. Once again we dominat-
ed the league going undefeat-

The 1991 Tiger basketball team faced
a very difficult conference this year.
Each and every game came down to
the wire; the last two minutes were
crucial. Despite their 2-6 record the
Tigers saw outstanding performances
from Steve Keffer, Mike Machado, Jon
Lu, Roberto Rook and Derek Smith.
This year's team showed a great deal
of determination and ambition. A big
thanks goes out to all those who came
out and supported the Tigers this
season.

hopes for a winning season but

VOLLEYBALL I


AM I DOING THIS RIGHT?
Kent Grubbs practices his setting during warm up.


The 1990-91 boys' Volleyball team, like that of the girls,
lost several seniors last year. This year, according to Mr.
Oliver, has been a year of rebuilding but the Tigers still
maintained their pride and determination.

"I only have two letterman coming back from last year.
This year has been a year of rebuilding but the building
material has been excellent," said Mr. Oliver.

The knowledge and perfection of the basic fundamen-
tals has been the goal for the 1990-91 boys' volleyball
team.


IN YOUR FACE!
Dan Howell, using his jumping abilities, stops a spiked ball from getting over the net.


SACRIFICE YOUR BODY!

STRETCH!

VOLLEYBALL

The 1990-91 Volleyball team under the coaching of
Gayle Rankin, has set goals for themselves for the up-
coming season. Even before the season started, dedi-
cated athletes were seen practicing the basic skills they
needed for the new season.

"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.

"Lots of team encouragement as well as high self es-
teem will help to maintain a strong and successful sea-
son. It doesn't matter if we have a young team because
we will remain winners and strive to be the best that we
can be. Teamwork, hustle, ride will prevail," said Mrs.
Rankin.

CHEERING ... ..
V P A6I


It's Not Just For Girls!


Devotion, pain-staking work, and undying dedication
were just part of the Cristobal High cheerleading crite-
ria.

At the games students saw the cheerleaders up front,
maintaining a captive and very spirited crowd, while
carefully producing Ringling Brothers-like-gymnastics.
The squad was a bit different this year because the girls
unanimously voted in the idea of having a yell leader.
Erik Jimenez decided that he had what it took and
willingly stepped forward to fill the position. Together
they made the entire year of sports a fulfilled one for
everyone.

Cheerleading was more than high spirits and short
skirts. It was more than that It was ambitious drive and
determination, and these individuals had what it took.


LOOKING' GREAT IN '90
The 1990-91 cheerleading squad consisted of: Back row (from left to right). Adrianne Holmes, Beverly Teal, Vicky Seeley, Erik Jimenez, Joce Borsellino, Dyonne
Canamas. and Deborah Rabago. Front row, Ivi Keith, Marion Northweather, Ana Pedersen, and Darlene Seeley.

concerns of the student body.
The SA is responsible for part
of jamboree, homecoming,
powder puff, and financial
assistance to other school
organizations. The SA
oversees organizational plans
as well as initiates activities at
CHS. The quality of SA
reflects the commitment of the

We all scream for ice cream! SA addresses the concern of every

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
next!"

Mr. Will is among the many teachers who have brought
warmth and great teaching to the students here at CHS.

Franceschi listens intently.

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
Kent, a freshman, and Kenneth, a sopho-
more, we can look forward in future years to
Isthmian domination by the boy's Tiger ten-
nis team.
Jay Laatz concentrates on his forehand smash.

The 1990-91 boys' Volleyball team, like that of the girls,
lost several seniors last year. This year, according to Mr.
Oliver, has been a year of rebuilding but the Tigers still
maintained their pride and determination.

"I only have two letterman coming back from last year.
This year has been a year of rebuilding but the building
material has been excellent," said Mr. Oliver.

The knowledge and perfection of the basic fundamen-
tals has been the goal for the 1990-91 boys' volleyball
team.

CRo GAYUCO


WA


For the past 38 years the Cayuco races have been a
part of the lives of many. The biggest challenge to most
CHS students is the physical, mental, and social as-
pects The overall reason for student participation is for
the competition.

"I love the sport because of it's unique and binding
team effort! I love the great competition," said Beverly
Teal.

The enthusiasm was in the air since the first announce-
ment concerning the Cayuco races. All crews, both new
and old began to prepare for the races. Crews were
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.
Although the stress of getting prepared lurked, all stu-
dents were glad the race was finished.

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.

WITHSTANDING THE STORM


The 1991 Tiger basketball team faced
a very difficult conference this year.
Each and every game came down to
the wire; the last two minutes were
crucial. Despite their 2-6 record the
Tigers saw outstanding performances
from Steve Keffer, Mike Machado, Jon
Lu, Roberto Rook and Derek Smith.
This year's team showed a great deal
of determination and ambition. A big
thanks goes out to all those who came
out and supported the Tigers this
season.



E. Botello, K. Dawson, M. Johnson, R. Rook, M.
Machado, Coach Elliott, D. Smith, C. Hern, M.
Williams, N. Acosta, T. Chinasing, R. Alvarez, L.

Taking a breather, Ricky, Luigi, Roberto, Jon,
Nito, and Mike all listen to Coach Elliott's
instructions.

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.

"Mr. Wright, I need this picture." "Will someone help me come

cropper?"
Yearbook and chaos; they're one and the same. The most
dreaded word to the yearbook staff is deadline. The mere
mention of an upcoming deadline stops all conversation as
serious work resumes. As deadlines loom closer, yearbook
staffers are seen running to and from Mr. Wright's room, the
yearbook room and the computer room with frantic desperation
written all over their faces.
"Will I get this done in time?" That is probably the foremost
thought in their minds during deadline time. Of course, those
deadlines would not be met without the help of certain people:
Mr. Wright, for spending hours in the closet developing last-
minute pictures; Mrs. Hoffman and Mrs. Mitchler, for double-
checking our copy and layouts; Mrs. Grubbs, for taking care of
yearbook and ad sales; Mr. Grubbs, for putting up with us in
the computer room; Mr. Youkin, for all your advice and help -
Thanks!

Sending Soundwaves Across Panama.

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
an adventure as well as a learning experience. Luiggi
Armuelles said, "ALL THAT JAZZ makes me come
alive," and he's right; it makes us all come alive.
Laurie Wyrick, confident in the group's success,
says, "Just wait till next year; we're going to knock
everyone's socks off!"

musical excellence to pose for the camera, wonder impatiently how long it will be until they return to their

Mr. Hashman. rather than making faces at Marion and trying to get her to smile, maybe you should wake Jennifer 69
up instead. After all. this is a performance, not nap time.

Senior Thoughts Flow And Create. .



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.

-Kaled Saker



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."

-Adrianne Holmes



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.



-Jessica Layne



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
away.



-Deborah Rabago




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, Cristobal 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 .

-Bev Teal



(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.



14




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.



FREEZE-FRAME! Vicki Seeley. caught in the act. on
her most familiar stage.

I will always have a special place in 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
dress rehearsal!"

-Vicki Seeley



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.

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.

-Bryan Richardson



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
stand tall."



James Howell hides from the masses in the corner, as if he were the

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.

JUNIORS SPEAK OUT..



Jenny Price




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
Jennifer Rankin.

Obviously there is a big difference in opinions, but the only question is who's right and
whose wrong?

embrace her masterpiece one early Saturday morning.



KEEPING BUSY Armando Kilborn works hard to accomplish his share

of the tree painting project.



TREE PAINTING




WORKING TOGETHER! Ana Pedersen and James Howell use their wit and
teamwork to finish their project.



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.

With all of the hard work and determination, both
the tree painting and Homecoming were a
success.

Argelis Rivas, a recreation assistant here at Cristobal for five
years, was shot above the knee during Operation "Just Cause."
Argelis was attempting to reach Margarita, on December 20,
1989, when she heard someone tell her to stop. When she failed
to stop, her car was fired on. One of the bullets went through her
left leg. She spent about one and a half months in the hospital
and underwent six operations on her leg. Argelis is thankful that
she has both of her legs and is able, once again, to play
basketball.

written all over their faces.

"Will I get this done in time?" That is probably the foremost
thought in their minds during deadline time. Of course, those
deadlines would not be met without the help of certain people:

JAMBOREE



Perceptions, First Impressions,



Final Recollection.



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
senior!"

"Although I never got into the dirty, roughness of football."
said Jennifer Rankin, "as a manager, I, too, saw the strengths
and courage build in each of the football players and I'm very
proud of all of them!"

CRISTOBAL HIGH SCHOOL



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
isthmus.

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
small.

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.

dents arriving tor the assembly the school held in order to say goodbye to these

Due to the strong military influence on CHS. the JROTC program is a very important
part of the student life




LOOKIN' GOOD AND LOVING IT!

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.

The 1990-91 Christmas Formal was held at the Ft.
Sherman Community Club on December 15. Along with
the usual song and dance was the Hall of Fame ceremo-
ny. Vicky Seeley and James Howell were awarded the
Hall of Fame "Mr. and Miss CHS"; Lutcia Pedersen and

CAYUCO



For the past 38 years the Cayuco races have been a
part of the lives of many. The biggest challenge to most
CHS students is the physical, mental, and social as-
pects. The overall reason for student participation is for
the competition.

"I love the sport because of it's unique and binding
team effort! I love the great competition," said Beverly
Teal.

The enthusiasm was in the air since the first announce-
ment concerning the Cayuco races. All crews, both new
and old began to prepare for the races. Crews were
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.
Although the stress of getting prepared lurked, all stu-
dents were glad the race was finished.

ALL THAT JAZZ



Sending Soundwaves Across Panama.

When school began, we were just nine students
who loved music, many ot whom had never received
any previous choral training. Mr. Hashman, tull ot
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
an adventure as well as a learning experience. Luiggi
Armuelles said, "ALL THAT JAZZ makes me come
alive," and he's right; it makes us all come alive.
Laurie Wyrick, confident in the group's success,
says, "Just wait till next year; we're going to knock
everyone's socks off!"

up instead. After all. this is a performance, not nap time. (

The Tigers take a moment to celebrate their win
against the P.C.C. Green Devils.



Intensity and tierce determination rocked
C.H.S. Tiger Stadium throughout the 1990
football season. For the second year the
Tigers continued a winning tradition with a
five and three season.

Inexperience was to be the Tiger's
greatest weakness, but time and time
again the team exhibited character and
composure. Quarterback Ricky Alvarez led
the team in yards passing while senior
running back Bryan Richardson ran for a
spectacular 1,000 yards this season. In
the three losses the Tiger defense only
gave up a total of twenty-one points. In
essence the Tigers were kept from going
undefeated by three touchdowns.

The team worked together as a unit and
improved themselves as players as well as
individuals. This year's football team
withstood the stormy seas, and it was
smooth sailing to another victorious
season.

The 1990 girls' basketball team
rode high on the waves of
success this season. For the
sixth consecutive year, the
Cristobal girls have remained
undefeated. The players
continuously exhibited grace and
agility on the court, while
remaining tough and aggressive.
The team's skillful ball handling
and guidance from coaches
Gayle Rankin and Rico Atherly
made the ultimate winning
combination.



At the end of the season, the
varsity team's record remained
unblemished and the junior
varsity went seven and one. The
girls captured both the first place
team trophy and the tournament
trophy. Three players on the
Tiger team were also chosen as
All-Isthmian players: Wendy
Franceschi, Megan Gibbons, and
Jessica Layne. As a result of this
team's hard work and
determination, the girls
consistantly took it to the hoop!

BOYS' TENNIS .
MAKIN' 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
Kent, a freshman, and Kenneth, a sopho-
more, we can look forward in future years to
Isthmian domination by the boy's Tiger ten-
nis team.

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.

Jessica Layne shows with her forehand return why she was the
top player on the team.

WITHSTANDING THE STORM



The 1991 Tiger basketball team faced
a very difficult conference this year.
Each and every game came down to
the wire; the last two minutes were
crucial. Despite their 2-6 record the
Tigers saw outstanding performances
from Steve Keffer, Mike Machado, Jon
Lu, Roberto Rook and Derek Smith.
This year's team showed a great deal
of determination and ambition. A big
thanks goes out to all those who came
out and supported the Tigers this
season.

VOLLEYBALL



AM I DOING THIS RIGHT?

Kent Grubbs practices his setting during warm up.



The 1990-91 boys' Volleyball team, like that of the girls,
lost several seniors last year. This year, according to Mr.
Oliver, has been a year of rebuilding but the Tigers still
maintained their pride and determination.

"I only have two letterman coming back from last year.
This year has been a year of rebuilding but the building
material has been excellent," said Mr. Oliver.

The knowledge and perfection of the basic fundamen-
tals has been the goal for the 1990-91 boys' volleyball
team.

VOLLEYBALL




The 1990-91 Volleyball team under the coaching of
Gayle Rankin, has set goals for themselves for the up-
coming season. Even before the season started, dedi-
cated athletes were seen practicing the basic skills they
needed for the new season.

"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.

"Lots of team encouragement as well as high self es-
teem will help to maintain a strong and successful sea-
son. It doesn't matter if we have a young team because
we will remain winners and strive to be the best that we
can be. Teamwork, hustle, ride will prevail," said Mrs.
Rankin.

It's Not Just For Girls!

Devotion, pain-staking work, and undying dedication
were just part of the Cristobal High cheerleading crite-
ria.

At the games students saw the cheerleaders up front,
maintaining a captive and very spirited crowd, while
carefully producing Ringling Brothers-like-gymnastics.
The squad was a bit different this year because the girls
unanimously voted in the idea of having a yell leader.
Erik Jimenez decided that he had what it took and
willingly stepped forward to fill the position. Together
they made the entire year of sports a fulfilled one for
everyone.

Cheerleading was more than high spirits and short
skirts. It was more than that. It was ambitious drive and
determination, and these individuals had what it took.

In Memoriam

OscayH^




Rain, Rain, come now in our darkest hour
and lift the grief and guilt that many of us
have of the tragedy of our dear friend
Oscar Reyes. May you rest in peace, my
friend.

- Dan Howell



May you always lie down in green pas-
tures, Oscar. Fear no evil, Oscar, for we
art with you, as you remain with us.
Memories are in great demand.

- Bev Teal



Don't let his death separate Oscar from
us. In his memory we will always know
that he is up there looking down at us and
saying, "I will never forget you guys, you
who are my friends forever."

- Ricky Alvarez



Nature s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower,
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf,
So Eden sank to grief.
So dawn goes to day,
Nothing gold can stay.

- Robert Frost



Oscar was a great friend who always
found a reason to laugh. He always made
me feel so much better, even when he
cracked on me. I will deeply miss him, like
everyone else will. There was NOBODY
like Oscar!

- Jennifer Stike



A thousand words can't say what has
been lost. We all share the same feelings
in remembering Oscar; the way he said
and did things. His action will always be in
our hearts. Maybe now the peace will
come. Ron Bruhn



Precious and simple is what life is
Hard times and sad times come and go
Strength is the bond that keeps us here
Tears are shed and smiles rise
Life is looking through your eyes.



Jennifer Rankin



Que Dios te tenga en la gloria.

- Kaled Saker

FOOTPRINTS



One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he
was walking along the beach with the LORD.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For
each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in
the sand; one belonged to him, and the other to
the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He
noticed that many times along the path of his life
there was only one set of footprints. He also
noticed that it happened at the very lowest and
saddest times in his life.



This really bothered him and he questioned the
LORD about it. "LORD, you said that once I
decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the
way. But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life, there is only one set
of footprints. I don't understand why when I
needed you most you would leave me."

The LORD replied, "My precious, precious child, I
love you and I would never leave you. During your
times of trial and suffering, when you only see one
set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

- Author Unknown










Perceptions, First Impressions,


Final Recollection.

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
senior!"

"Although I never got into the dirty, roughness of football,"
said Jennifer Rankin, "as a manager, I, too, saw the strengths
and courage build in each of the football players and I'm very
proud of all of them!"

VOLLEYBALL

The 1990-91 Volleyball team under the coaching of
Gayle Rankin, has set goals for themselves for the up-
coming season. Even before the season started, dedi-
cated athletes were seen practicing the basic skills they
needed for the new season.

"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.

"Lots of team encouragement as well as high self es-
teem will help to maintain a strong and successful sea-
son. It doesn't matter if we have a young team because
we will remain winners and strive to be the best that we
can be. Teamwork, hustle, ride will prevail," said Mrs.
Rankin.

Intensity and fierce determination rocked
C.H.S. Tiger Stadium throughout the 1990
football season. For the second year the
Tigers continued a winning tradition with a 1
five and three season.

Inexperience was to be the Tiger's
greatest weakness, but time and time
again the team exhibited character and
composure. Quarterback Ricky Alvarez led
the team in yards passing while senior
running back Bryan Richardson ran for a
spectacular 1,000 yards this season. In
the three losses the Tiger defense only
gave up a total of twenty-one points. In
essence the Tigers were kept from going
undefeated by three touchdowns.

The team worked together as a unit and
improved themselves as players as well as
individuals. This year's football team
withstood the stormy seas, and it was
smooth sailing to another victorious
season.








Eagerly awaiting the kick-off, team
captains Angel Keith. Cookie
Evans. Bryan Richardson, and
James Howell meet with the
officials.

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
isthmus.

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
small.

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.

They're a very supportive and

FOCUS ON ARGELIS

Argelis Rivas, a recreation assistant here at Cristobal for five
years, was shot above the knee during Operation "Just Cause."'' '
Argelis was attempting to reach Margarita, on December 20,
1989, when she heard someone tell her to stop. When she failed
to stop, her car was fired on. One of the bullets went through her
left leg. She spent about one and a half months in the hospital
and underwent six operations on her leg. Argelis is thankful that
she has both of her legs and is able, once again, to play
basketball.

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
Jennifer Rankin.

Obviously there is a big difference in opinions, but the only question is who's right and
whose wrong?

The 1990 girls' basketball team
rode high on the waves of
success this season. For the
sixth consecutive year, the
Cristobal girls have remained
undefeated. The players
continuously exhibited grace and
agility on the court, while
remaining tough and aggressive.
The team's skillful ball handling
and guidance from coaches
Gayle Rankin and Rico Atherly
made the ultimate winning
combination.


At the end of the season, the
varsity team's record remained
unblemished and the junior
varsity went seven and one. The
girls captured both the first place
team trophy and the tournament
trophy. Three players on the
Tiger team were also chosen as
All-lsthmian players: Wendy
Franceschi, Megan Gibbons, and
Jessica Layne. As a result of this
team's hard work and
determination, the girls
consistently took it to the hoop!


The 1990-1991 Cristobal girls' basketball team stands tall and proud.

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.

-Bryan Richardson



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
stand tall."


James Howell hides from the masses in the corner, as if he were the
public enemy.

FREEZE-FRAME! Vicki Seeley, caught in the act, on
her most familiar stage.

I will always have a special place in 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
dress rehearsal!"

-Vicki Seeley





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.

In Memoriam


Rain, Rain, come now in our darkest hour
and lift the grief and guilt that many of us
have of the tragedy of our dear friend
Oscar Reyes. May you rest in peace, my
friend.
Dan Howell


May you always lie down in green pas-
tures, Oscar. Fear no evil, Oscar, for we
art with you, as you remain with us.
Memories are in great demand.
Bev Teal


Don't let his death separate Oscar from
us. In his memory we will always know
that he is up there looking down at us and
saying, "I will never forget you guys, you
who are my friends forever."
Ricky Alvarez


H 0 e o h











Oscar was a great friend who always
found a reason to laugh. He always made
me feel so much better, even when he
cracked on me. I will deeply miss him, like
everyone else will. There was NOBODY
like Oscar!
Jennifer Stike


A thousand words can't say what has
been lost. We all share the same feelings
in remembering Oscar; the way he said
and did things. His action will always be in
our hearts. Maybe now the peace will
come. Ron Bruhp



Precious and simple is what life is
Hard times and sad times come and go
Strength is the bond that keeps us here
Tears are shed and smiles rise
Life is looking through your eyes.

GIRLS' TENNIS


KEEPING A GRIP ON THINGS.


Variety ... Involvement ... Companion-
ship ... FOOD!

These words all come to mind when at-
tempting to describe the girls' tennis team
this past year.

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.
Jessica Layne shows with her forehand return why she was the
top player on the team.

"Drama Club is a group of
students who are interested in
the theater and the dramatic
arts. Our projects this year
include acting and improvisation
lessons, scene study, a children's
show and one major musical
production."
Mr. Steve Parker, director
"Drama was something I had
always wanted to do in my other
school, but it was so large I felt
intimidated. Here it's so much
more personal; we're being
taught, and we're displaying
what we've learned on the stage.
It's an outlet, for me to be
someone other than myself."
Lisa Stike
"It's fun and exciting."
Jennifer Light
"I've always enjoyed acting and I
thought it would be a fun thing
to do."

_I _FOOTPRINTS I


One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he
was walking along the beach with the LORD.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For
each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in
the sand; one belonged to him, and the other to
the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He
noticed that many times along the path of his life
there was only one set of footprints. He also
noticed that it happened at the very lowest and
saddest times in his life.


This really bothered him and he questioned the
LORD about it. "LORD, you said that once I
decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the
way. But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life, there is only one set
of footprints. I don't understand why when I
needed you most you would leave me."

The LORD replied, "My precious, precious child, I
love you and I would never leave you. During your
times of trial and suffering, when you only see one
set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

20 Be nea th the bright blue sky I am sitting surrounded by my thoughts. Slowly drifting away, s uddenly a loud noise causes my body to jump. I look up beside me, I see the sparkling blue pool. Refle c ting in it are the tall green trees around it. I look up into the sky and see butterflies bouncing arou n d in the air aimless l y flying nowhere; bees are racing by busily; and birds are perch e d in the swaying branches of trees, singing melodiously. I look out, beyond the stone wall tha t enc l oses my backyard, and see the fuschia violet and apricot flowers of the bougainvillea bus hes, growing from the thick green grass I see where the grass meets the jungle of massive p alm, 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 Christma s time in Panama My b o d y j er ks s uddenly as I hear the sound again. This time, it pulls me out of the world I have bee n i n 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 faint l y 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. JUST CAUSE -Adrianne Holme s Senior Class President

For a long time differences of opinions on teenage drinking have been e x pressed. Some students think it's alright while others are saying no! There are conflicting opinions as to whether students should drink or not. I fee l drinking among students is a personal choice I f 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 EDUCA TION. Some students tend t o dr i nk and drive not realizin g the danger. What if someone you love got killed by a drunk?

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. With all of the hard work and determination both the tree painting and Homecoming were a success.

T heir perceptions towards the T ige rs' success were as varied as the number of people who came thr ough 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 s t arted to click' f or all of us. Jamboree has been a tradition at Cristobal for 4 1 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 thi s year I guess because in the states, activities such as these weren t very common I t' s all been a very cherishable and very unique experience that I'll ca rr y with me for the rest of my life said Bryan R ichardson The T igers started off on a b ad note but ended tying for second in the end To kick off f or the T igers, C H S faced the Curundu Cougars Despite their loss to the Cougars, the team showed their Tiger pride and dete r mination During the second and third quarters the T igers fought thei r way to main t ain the tied score of 0 In the fou rth game the Cristobal Tigers tr i umphed over the Red M achine James H owell, #34, sco r ed the winning touchdown leading the T igers to a 6 victory "Jamboree for me was a very grand experience Along with the Cayuc o race s from the past and the ladies, commented James Howell Jamboree was the greatest part of being a senior!"

Throughout the years, political unrest in Panama has often closed school, interrupting finals sport seasons ann 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 the i r 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 8allallon, 8ullaloe5, shake hands w i t h s tudenls arriving lor the assembly the school held In order 1 0 say goodbye to Ihese soldIers who had been thelf "neighbors" Due to the sHong military Inlluence on CHS, the J ROTC program IS a very Imp Orlan! par! 01 the sludenl lIIe

CAYUCa For the past 38 years the Cayuco races have been a part of the lives of many The biggest challenge to most CHS students is the physical mental and social as pects The overall reason for student participation is for the competition. "I love the sport because of it's unique and b i nding team effort! I love the great competition," said Beverly Teal. The enthusiasm was in the air since the first announce ment concerning the Cayuco races.

BOYS' TENNIS ... MAKIN' A RACKET! The 1991 CHS boy's tennis season was full of l earni ng e xpe riences 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. E ven the coach, Kenneth Youkin, hailing from Day tona Flor ida, was new to coachi ng the sport. Youkin, head of the art department at Cristobal, de scribes the group as "overall, a young team with some individuals with lot s 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 Kent a freshman and Kenneth a sop ho more we can look forward in future years to Isthmian domination by the boy's Tiger ten nis team Jay Laatz concentrates on his forehand smash (from left) Coach Ken Younkin, Ron Bruhn, M ike Suarez, Kent Grubbs.

With players like Bev Teal the ca ptain of the "eating team," and Lutcia Pedersen, who moved especially well with firecrackers tied t o her shoes, laughs were never far behind. "The girls were always very in volved, not onl y in tennis, but othe r things like boyfriends and the cayuco race," said coach Tr oy Oliver.

KEEPING BUSY ... Armando Kilborn works hard to accomplish his share
of the tree painting project.



TREE PAINTING...


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.

With all of the hard work and determination, both
the tree painting and Homecoming were a
success.




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.
-Kaled Saker


r
;..-,.^


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."

-Adrianne Holmes


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.

-Jessica Layne



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
away.


-Deborah Rabago


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, Cistobal 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 ...
