Cristobal High School spent
its first year in Coco Solo in
the year of 1959-1960, after
moving from its old home
next to the Club Nautico yacht
club in Colon. Among its first
year graduates was Bill Will,
current head of the Social
The building itself was ori-
ginally built as a headquarters
for the U.S. Navy aircraft and
submarine base about 1936.
Over the years, it has been
modified to accommodate
handicapped students with
the addition of an elevator, as
well as central air condition-
ing. The highway to the
school was originally built for
and used as an airstrip. The
large asphalt circle in front of
Tiger Gym was used for sub-
marines to align their com-
passes. Across the "taxi strip"
stands a sister building which
has suffered extensive dam-
age over the years from van-
dals, and, most notably, Op-
eration Just Cause.
From early 1989, Cristobal
was home to 150 troops from
Ft. Ord, California. Their mis-
sion was to protect the school
and its members, and to give
support in any way they could.
The soldiers adopted the
school with no hesitation, and
added incredible enthusiasm
to sports events.
According to Principal How-
ard Perkins, 'Over the32 year
history of the school here in
Coco Solo, Cristobal has fa-
cilitated Indians, Arabs, Ja-
maicans. Panamanians, and
many other ethnic groups.
The intercultural aspect can't
be stressed enough. This
building has charm, charac-
ter, and soul. CHS is beauti-
"Cristobal has always been a very
safe school. We have never had a
tragedy occur here, yet we have been
literally so close to war. From a Navy
headquarters to a staging area for Op-
eration Just Cause, Cristobal has
been more than just a school. For
many, it has been home.

The Grads Of 1992 From Cristobal High
ENERGIZED & READY
This year's seniors have what
most call a high energy level.
They turn to any event with en-
thusiasm. "They are extremely
responsive as a whole and can
get excited over very little."
says class president Jennifer
Rankin. "They're like a book,"
says Joce Borsellino, "full of
events and neverending sto-
ries." Yet those seniors will
miss and be missed by the en-
tire school. "It's like a big fam-
ily with no racial discrimina-
tion," Joce comments. "You
know everyone in the school
and have a friendly relationship
with them," agrees Jennifer.
"The friendship we have for
each other will be hard to
leave," declares Bonnie Ra-
mirez. "The new experiences
and people will be fun to meet,
though, "Jennifer says. "I think
that those will occupy me for
awhile." Most agree, but I
guess we will have to see.
Jenny Price looks around trying to de-
cide whether to pass to someone or
just go for the points herself.

Responsible leadership has
been a major asset to the
eighth grade. Through respon-
sible leaders, a class learns re-
sponsibility and learns to ex-
ceed their own limitations. Says
class president Kuwanna Simp-
son, "Being president has had
a lot of effect on me. I am now
involved in more school activi-
ties. I also feel that because I
have this leadership position, I
should make good grades and
set a good example. I hope that
others follow my example. I re-
present all of the 8th graders."
According to Sharlotte Bird,
"Being secretary also has a lot
of responsibilities; keeping
track of every meeting isn't
easy, but I have risen to the
challenge. The 8th graders this
year are striving to be on top.
We are going to prove to every-
one that we are equals."

wave of excitement. They've
come to find that upper-class-
men don't really stuff them in

they most certainly don't beat

The class of 1997 has been
active since they've entered the
school. They were a very big
part of the football season, tak-
ing part in the pep squad with
lots of helpful parents on the
side. October brought goblins
and ghouls screaming out their
boo's and howls at the Junior
High Halloween dance on Octo-
ber 28. The dance's outcome
was wonderful as they all
danced the night away. Taking

COMING THROUGH WITH POWER
The Cristobal Tiger football
team started out the season
with a lot of new faces behind
the masks. They worked hard
to achieve success levels com-
pared to the teams ability. The
team really gave their all to
achieve what they have, And
they showed their willingness
to improve. Both the efforts and
spirits were high even though
the scores were low.
"The players are enthusias-
tic, motivated, and not afraid to
jump back up after being down.
I'm very proud of the team and
would not trade them for any-
