DEDICATION


MRS. ANNE GEGG
Thousands Say Thanks!
Irs. Anne Gegg has been a teacher and counselor at Cristobal for
many years. More importantly, she has been a friend and mentor dur-
Lng all that time, touching the lives of literally thousands of students.
As Cristobal High ceases to exist, her contributions will remain in the
memories of so many. We, on behalf of all the families she has so
deeply affected, dedicate this final issue of the Caribbean to her. Thank
You Mrs. Gegg!

him- just a little "laid back". Mr. Elliott

Final One dedi-
cated to founder!










To all Jamboree partici-
pants,
I was overwhelmed as
you dedicated the jam-
boree to me. I really
didn't deserve the honor
because it has always
been the football players
and fans that make it
happen. I was only there
to help.
To all Cristobal Ti-
gers, I say a big thanks
and I'm glad to see that
the Tiger spirit is still
there. Even in this last
year, the Tigers are still
growling!
It was good to be back
in Panama. You know
I've always loved
Panama just as I've
always loved the game
of football. Thanks to
everyone who helped
make the evening spe-
cial to me.

Mr. Wright, school photographer, got close to the

Various notable alumni from the proud tradition
which was "The Cristobal lamiree" gather at the
sidelines in this final one to pay homage to the
founding father of football on the Isthmus-Coach
Luke Palumbo.
At a pregame ceremony Coach Palumbo exchanges
some lighthearted banter with Cristobal athletic di-
rector, teacher, and coach, Gayle Rankin. She pre-
sents him with an all-isthmian jacket on behalf of the
school.

When I go to Shimmev Beach,
I can see the ruffles
Of the sparkling water
Hit the shore.
Watching for coral
And seeing a few coconuts
Laying on the lighl sand.
The rough sand
Warms my toes.
As the sun shines
All over Shimme\,
It warms my skin
And plans me to a toasty brown.
As I dive into the ocean,
The water is saltl
But still cools off my body.

As I look out tolsard the ocean
And see the ships,

Of all the people on the cruise ships
That look at Panama
And see a tropical land
Full of exotic creatures and plants.

A Good Place to Enjoy

Ft. Gulick, With its palm trees
And flowering plants,
Is a good place to remember.
Kids play
And yell
And do their homework
As they go into one
Of many carpeted classrooms.

And kids enter the school,
A mosaic elephant on front
Seems to say,
"Learning is fun."
Painted blue and white,
the school is a good place
to enjoy.

As I stand
Looking at the victory bell,
Our honor bell,
I wonder how many times
This bell has been rung.
When I'm in class
Listening to the announcements,
I always listen for the victory bell,
The bell that says
We ripped their spirit in half.
The huge, copper bell
Rings for a long time,
And if you listen closely,
You may hear the bell say, "True
champs!"

Even though I hate homework,
I will miss this school
After it closes,
Especially...
Our victory bell,
Our honor bell.

As I lay
Under a tree
Shaded from the blistering sun,

Croak in the grass.

And see many discolored shells
Bleached by the hot sun.
As pelicans fly overhead,
I look up and see them
Dive shallow
To grasp a bass for lunch.
As I watch the pelican,
I think that I, too,
Want to follow the pelican
And follow the sea
To discoveries.

On Gatun Lake
Boats, ships and yachts
Float on the deep bluish-green lake.
As I sit at steak night,
I can hear
Birds chirping
And even hear horns
From nearby ships.
As I look down at the dock
From the top of the club,
It looks like a blanket
Surrounded by lots of green trees.
The air is fresh,
Like fresh air from a cloudy day.

As I finish my last year
At Cristobal,
And time passes,
I wonder what next school
Will be mine next year
And who my friends will be.
I know I will miss my friends
And hope they will miss me, too.
What does it mean to leave your friends

Never to Reopen


While sitting in class
Waiting for the lunch bell to
ring,
I think to myself.
The bell rings and
As I rush out of the class-
room
I realize that
I'm going to have to hear
That bell ring
Eight more years
Until I graduate.

I rush to the lunch room
And when I enter
The cafeteria,
The aroma of french fries
Hits me like a wall.
As I turn backto see
If my friend is calling me,
I quickly glance
Past the victory bell.
Memories yet to come
Of the victory bell ringing
Its last time
Sadden me.


I finish lunch
And come out of the lunchrooom
With a full stomach
And a new thought.
As the year gets closer to the end,
Friends start disappearing.
Deep in my heart,
I will miss Cristobal--
The teachers forcing us to work rapidly
To finish our homework
So we can be finished before the football
game,
My friends giving me advice
On the latest styles,
And my classmates helping me out
When I'm confused about math proce-
dures.


I will be one of the last students
To walk out of this school.
I'll never hear the sounds again
Of bookbags
Zippered opened and closed,
The students whispering behind the te
ers' backs,
And the lockers being slammed
As students rush to their classes.

As I pass the victory bell,
And walk down the halls,
I know the doors will soon
Close
Behind me,
Never to reopen
To another group of Tigers.

This page is reserved for
those "special" memories
that because of printing
deadlines the yearbook
staff could not include. For
some this memory might be
the Prom, Graduation, or
"skip day", for others a
Spring sporting event, or
maybe just a special time
with good friends.


"The CHS of the future
Will be one big paradise,
Where all the teachers are lenient,
And the students already wise."
"They won't pick teachers for ability
But they'll pick them for their looks.
There won't be such a word as homework.
There won't be such a -iii.' as books."
"The rooms will be air-conditioned
And the periods run ten minutes long.
The other thirty five minutes
Will be spent in "Wine, Women, and Song."


"There'll be no place like the 'Office'"
Where bad boys and girls are sent,
But there will be a big social room
Where many happy hours will be spent."
"There's no doubt that in the future
CHS will rank as the best.
The place where you can go to school,
And catch up on your rest."


Well, did we make it?


The following poem was written by Fannie
Eldridge back in 1940. Ask yourself if we
reached her "picture" of a future CHS.

Tiger Soccer


The 1995 soccer
team exhibited
great soccer skills
and came a long
way under the
able tutelege of
Coach Holland,
who also credits
the assistance of
parents, (especially
the Bernhardts),
with making this
final season a suc-
cess. They all
worked hard even
before the season
began so they
could purchase
uniforms- they
made it a season
to remember!

CHS will rank as the best.

And catch up on your rest."

The following poem was written by Fannie
Eldridge back in 1940. Ask yourself if we
reached her "picture" of a future CHS.

an exciting 7-6 victory
over the Kiwani Kolts.
All in all, it was a fitting
end to the "Cristobal

Panama.

Pitrsan Pros


Never to Reopen


While sitting in class
Waiting for the lunch bell to
ring,
I think to myself.
The bell rings and
As I rush out of the class-
room
I realize that
I'm going to have to hear
That bell ring
Eight more years
Until I graduate.

I rush to the lunch room
And when I enter
The cafeteria,
The aroma of french fries
Hits me like a wall.
As I turn backto see
If my friend is calling me,
I quickly glance
Past the victory bell.
Memories yet to come
Of the victory bell ringing
Its last time
Sadden me.


I finish lunch
And come out of the lunchrooom
With a full stomach
And a new thought.
As the year gets closer to the end,
Friends start disappearing.
Deep in my heart,
I will miss Cristobal--
The teachers forcing us to work rapidly
To finish our homework
So we can be finished before the football
game,
My friends giving me advice
On the latest styles,
And my classmates helping me out
When I'm confused about math proce-
dures.


I will be one of the last students
To walk out of this school.
I'll never hear the sounds again
Of bookbags
Zippered opened and closed,
The students whispering behind the te
ers' backs,
And the lockers being slammed
As students rush to their classes.

As I pass the victory bell,
And walk down the halls,
I know the doors will soon
Close
Behind me,
Never to reopen
To another group of Tigers.


Sarah Knowlton

talented artists, Charlene Kallmeyer.

We were very fortunate to have an active theater
group on the "Atlantic side". Plays were partici-
pated in by students, parents, and teachers and we
were entertained by the wealth of talents in our
little community. Here we see Mr. Grubbs, as

We Say Farewell To Our Alma Mater

Cristobal was established in its present site in 1959, but the
school began clear back in 1907. The present day CHS has
served the needs of many students but will become a
memory with the closing of this facility as the Treaty imple-
mentation becomes fact and the Atlantic side reverts to
Panamanian control. The many students that have passed
through these hallowed halls will carry the memory of
Cristobal well into the future.

Jamboree

Final One dedi-

The first Jamboree
was held in 1950.
Coach Palumbo
established it as a
Cristobal tradition.



To all Jamboree partici-
pants,

I was overwhelmed as
you dedicated the jam-
boree to me. I really
didn't deserve the honor
because it has always
been the football players
and tans that make il
happen. I was only there
to help.

To all Cristobal Ti-
gers, I sav a big thanks
and I'm glad to see that
the I iger spirit is still
there. Even in this last
year, the Tigers are still
growling!

I can see the ruffles

Of the sparkling water

Hit the shore.

Watching for coral

And seeing a few coconuts

Laying on the light sand.

The rough sand

Warms my toes.

As the sun shines

All over Shimmey,

It warms my skin

And tans me to a toasty brown.

As I dive into the ocean,

The water is salty

But still cools off my body.

As I look out toward the ocean

And see the ships,

I think

Of all the people on the cruise ships

That look at Panama

And see a tropical land

Full of exotic creatures and plants.

As I stand

Looking at the victory bell,

Our honor bell,

I wonder how many times

This bell has been rung.

When I'm in class

Listening to the announcements,

I always listen for the victory bell,

The bell that says

We ripped their spirit in half.

The huge, copper bell

Rings for a long time,

And if you listen closely,

You may hear the bell say, "True

champs!"

Even though I hate homework,

I will miss this school

After it closes,

Especially...

Our victory bell,

Our honor bell.

The daily operation of the canal, and the great
engineering feat it was, sometimes was taken for
granted by thoseof us that saw it every day. But the
scaleand majesty of thiscreation should surely be
remembered.



Followin g the Sea

With crystal clear water,
Isla Grande is peaceful
With the quiet sound of water
Splashing against the rocks.
As I lay-
Under a tree

Shaded from the blistering sun,
1 hear the frogs and lizards
Croak in the grass.
I feel the sand's smoothness
And see many discolored shells
Bleached by the hot sun.
As pelicans fly overhead,
I look up and see them
Dive shallow
To grasp a bass for lunch.
As I watch the pelican,
I think that I, too,
Want to follow the pelican
And follow the sea
To discoveries.

Forever?

On Gatun Lake

Boats, ships and yachts

Float on the deep bluish-green lake.

As I sit at steak night,

I can hear

Birds chirping

And even hear horns

From nearby ships.

As I look down at the dock

From the top of the club,

It looks like a blanket

Surrounded by lots of green trees.

The air is fresh,

Like fresh air from a cloudy day.

As I finish my last year

At Cristobal,

And time passes,

I wonder what next school

Will be mine next year

And who my friends will be.

I know I will miss my friends

And hope they will miss me, too.

What does it mean to leave your friends

Forever?

Pictures and Prose



While sitting in class
Waiting for the lunch bell to
ring,

I think to myself.
The belli rings and
As I rush out of the class-
room

I realize that
I'm going to have to hear
That bell ring
Eight more years
Until I graduate.

I rush to the lunch room

And when I enter

The cafeteria,

The aroma of french fries

Hits me like a wall.

As I turn backto see

If my friend is calling me,

I quickly glance

Past the victory bell.

Memories yet to come

Of the victory bell ringing

Its last time

Sadden me.

Never to Reopen

I finish lunch

And come out of the lunchrooom
With a full stomach
And a new thought.
As the year gets closer to the end,
Friends start disappearing.
Deep in my heart,
I will miss Cristobal
The teachers forcing us to work rapidly
To finish our homework
So we can be finished before the football
game,

My friends giving me advice
On the latest styles,
And my classmates helping me out
When I'm confused about math proce-
dures.



I will be one of the last students

To walk out of this school.

I'll never hear the sounds again

Of bookbags

Zippered opened and closed.

The students whispering behind the te

ers' backs,

And the lockers being slammed

As students rush to their classes.

As I pass the victory bell,

And walk down the halls,

I know the doors will soon

Close

Behind me,

Never to reopen

To another group of Tigers.

little community. Here we see Mr. Grubbs, as

MEMORIES...



This page is reserved for

those "special" memories

that because of printing

deadlines the yearbook

staff could not include. For

some this memory might be

the Prom, Graduation, or

"skip day", for others a

Spring sporting event, or

maybe just a special time

with good friends.



The following poem was written by Fannie
Eldridge back in 1940. Ask yourself if we
reached her "picture" of a future CHS.



"The CHS of the future
Will be one big paradise,
Wliere all the teachers are lenient
And the students already wise.

"They won 't pick teachers for ability
But the\/ 'II pick them for their looks.
There won 't be such a word as homework.
There won 't be such a thing as books.

"The rooms will be air-conditioned
And the periods run ten minutes long.
The other thirty five minutes
Will be spent in "Wine, Women, and Song.



"There'll be no place like the 'Office'"
Wliere bad boys and girls are sent,
But there will be a big social room
Where many happy hours will be spent.

"There's no doubt that in the future
CHS will rank as the best.
The place where you can go to school,
And catch up on your rest.



Well, did we make it?

the face of rampaging rivers.
Dutch authorities evacuate
250,000 people from the

A Good Place to Enjoy

Ft. Gulick, With its palm trees
And flowering plants,
Is a good place to remember.
Kids play
And yell
And do their homework
As they go into one
Of many carpeted classrooms.
As the bell rings
And kids enter the school,
A mosaic elephant on front
Seems to say,
"Learning is fun."
Painted blue and white,
the school is a good place
to enjoy.

As I stand
Looking at the victory bell,
Our honor bell,
I wonder how many times
This bell has been rung.
When I'm in class
Listening to the announcements,
I always listen for the victory bell,
The bell that says
We ripped their spirit in half.
The huge, copper bell
Rings for a long time,
And if you listen closely,
You may hear the bell say, "True
champs!"

Even though I hate homework,
I will miss this school
After it closes,
Especially...
Our victory bell,
Our honor bell.
