Moments and Memories of WHS




Jacket Journal debuts

With the beginning of the 1989-90 school year, WHS students will notice a change in many things including: new principal; new classes, the first golf team; and two new teachers.

With all those changes, you may think there is not room for even one more. However, we, the newspaper staff, have just that in mind.

In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve given your paper a new look and a new name! The Jacket Journal has, with this issue, officially made its debut in the hallways of Whitesburg High School.

We hope you like the new look of the paper and such plans we have for the coming school year. If you have any suggestions, or a good idea, please feel free to leave us a message in our suggestion box located in the front of the main office.

Our new advisor is Drama and Media teacher, Jeff Hawkins, who is doing a great job in teaching us the basics of journalism.

The editors of The Jacket Journal are Lisa Ann Fields and Michele Back, who are backed by a full student staff including Stacy Morrow, Rachael Kilbourne, Jessie Richmond, Jenifer Hart, Vanessia Fields, Melissa Narramore, Robert Smallwood, Lesley Ison, Carl Bowling, Jennifer Short, Elijah Fleming, Vanessa Adams, Michelle Bentley, Melanie Sexton, Kathy Hogg, Anne Caudill, Kim Caudill, Rebecca Craft, David Sturgill, Jeff Nickels and Angel Adams.

Football cheerleaders have new look for


With the coming of football season comes cheerleading. This year’s squad lacks two things from last year, guys and strength. There are eleven girls on the squad, three seniors and eight sophomores and juniors.

According to Mrs. Barker, the WHS cheerleading sponsor, the squad will have to work much harder this year because of the lack of guys, which also means a lack of strength. She hopes to start a weight program to gain the strength to be able to pick up where they left off last year.

Mrs. Barker said she hoped the squad would be competitive in the region and the state again.

But this will be a much harder task than before because this year more elaborate formations are being utilized.

As always, the Whitesburg High School Cheerleading Squad will be one of the best. We can count on the cheerleaders to support our athletic teams throughout the coming school year and be excellent representatives of our school wherever they perform.

Yearbook Dedication

We dedicate the 1990 Yellowjacket Yearbook to5CXP+2FP=20DT.A breakdown of this equation reveals that: C-1 means competency, a thorough knowledge of subject matter to be taught. C-2 is for courtesy, a kind of friendly way of telling students that the order of business for the day is hard work. C-3 stands for conscientiousness, the giving of one hundred percent of themselves for the sake of the student when they would rather be spending a relaxing weekend tending their flowers, doing civic club work, gardening or angling. C-4 is competitiveness, motivating students to strive toward winning in all their endeavors — in academics as well as in life. C-5 is for caring, letting the students know that they and their concerns are important, telling them that you welcome their phone calls twenty-four hours a day, and that you really did not want a planning period this year anyway.

Times — one helping of Professionalism, having the respect and admiration of the entire faculty and staff;

Plus — two Fine People who love and cherish their two daughters, Kim and Janet, and the two sons-inlaw, Mike and Tom;

Equals — two of Whitesburg High School’s most outstanding and dedicated teachers, Loretta Mayes Arthur and Jimmie Arthur.
