This year book is dedicated to Norma and Marilyn's last year here.

We all love you and will miss you. Bye and come back to see us.

Sam's Twelfth Annual End of the Year Spiel

I have been teaching in the Grand Ledge Alternative program a dozen years now, wow. That is so hard to believe. I still feel like the freshfaced kid who came in here barely older than the students he was teaching. I still feel young because you all keep me feeling young. Of course, when I look in the mirror each morning and notice more and more gray in my hair and beard, I realize how many years it has been.

This year has been a good one. We have had some fun everyday and we have leamed some things along the way. Not everything we learn is in a textbook or lecture notes. In fact the most important lessons might not have anything to do with reading, writing or computers.

For example I have seen students who found it impossible to trust another human being able to put their grade and even their own safety in the hands of their peers. I have seen people grow from being completely selfish to caring about the welfare of others. I have seen people who were so self-conscious that they wouldn't say a word become active and social. Now, as Shrek says of Donkey, "the trick is getting [them] to shut up!"

Not everyone who started in the fall is still with us at the end of the year. You all take different paths; you all have to make your own choices. As Norma is found of saying, all of those choices have made you who you are today. The choices you make now, will make you who you are tomorrow.

For you seniors graduating, T envy you in a way. You are at the start of a new joumey. You have come to a crossroads where any destination is possible. J suggest you travel light. Leave all the baggage of the troubles you have had and the disappointments you have faced behind you. Granted, those things have made you stronger, so remember tbe way you succeeded. However don't let those things drag you down.

Good luck on your new journey, seniors. We will miss YOLl. Let us know about the new successes you encounter. Drop by or send us pictures. Let us know that the pains in the neck that you gave us as you struggled were worth it'

Of course we are losing two other "seniors" this year as well. Goodbye Norma and Marilyn. Please have a happy life. We'll miss you two also.

Those of us coming back next year will

have to support each other even more. I look . , forward to that challenge, and I hope you do too. The class of 2005 can make next year a great year.



Written By: Ivan Mackey

To those of you that want to go on with life and are set on making something of yourselves, please, keep going. Show people what you're made of. Don't give up its really not that hard. There may be some difficulties along the way but you'll see that the road that you follow after your hard work will be more satisfying and forgiving.

People who don't care and want to just live your life messing around looking for that job of great importance to be GNEN to you, you've got some quick hard thinking to do. Plans may work but for those people an everyday struggle will most likely be in your future. Which is actually is not a bad thing but will lead to a severe and overwhelming amount of stress that shouldn't affect you in the first place. Keep it together. After you move on in life, moving away from home or what have you, it gets hard and you all probably know that. However, you may not know just how hard that may be. I'm talking about waking lip lat for every job you have or had and getting fired because you couldn't control the urge to drink the night before. Everyone loves to enjoy a beer or whatever you like now and then but not to obliteration every night. The same goes for smoking pot, it's going to drag you down weather you care or 110t. One day you will care and you will regret it.

The gift of life is more than precious and requires appreciation on your part to make your life and everyone else's life better and a lot easier. Nothing is stopping you from making something of yourself except you and your decisions. We all know what good decisions and bad ones are. WE ALL HAVE THE POWER,

ABILITY, AND PRNLAGE TO CHOOSE. USE IT! Choose to show the world what you are capable of

accomplishing without being brought down or embarrassed about what you want or what you are passionate about.

If people believe, really care, want something bad enough, and follow through 011 promises to themselves and every person they can help without getting into a sling, it is my belief that those people will be the happiest people on earth. Don't be conceded about these things though. Help people because they need it not to sully make yourself feel better, but because they need the help and you have the ability to help and or teach them. We are all teachers knowing it or not. Some have degrees and some have a god given skill. Use it that is why you have it.

Norma Pryor ... we are going to miss youll

Norma came into education because ...

"I enjoy working with young people, and I want to make a difference."

Norma's best memory of all the years she's spent at Sswdon ...

"The way the students and staff pulled together in my absence to deliver a quality program. I am very touched by their caring!"

The funniest thing any of the students has ever done ...

"Shawn dressed as a guy and one student dressed in a dress. Or Kyle Barker and his excuses ... "I was abducted by aliensl?"

Favorite Quote ...

"You are what you are today because of the choices you made" Norma's one wish ...

"That Tobacco would be removed from the face of the earth, I hate that students smoker" Regrets ...

"I really don't have any regrets, I've lived my life the best I could and enjoyed everyday." Norma is going to miss ...

"The students, because they keep me young. And of course the staff, because they are so supportive." Anything she could have said or done to the kids ... ?

"1 would like to instill in the kids that you are in charge of your own happiness."

Some last words of Goodbye ...

"The past 2 1 years I have enjoyed a very interesting work life and have witnessed this program growing from 25 students to 95 students. I have seen many success stories- this year is no exception as we have 53 people receiving their H.S. credential. I have had the opportunity to meet with many of our former grads over the years and have seen first hand that [hey are productive citizens.

1 am sad that I will no longer take an active part in the education of our communities' young people. Plus, I will miss working with this awesome staff. 1 do hope to see and hear from you in the future. You have made me laugh.

You have made me cry.

But always you have brightened my lifer"

Now that Norma has a Jot of free time she will be ...

"Enjoying the time I have with my family (grandchildren), working in my flower garden, and traveling as much as possible!"

Marilyn Antcliff

Marilyn has been a secretary here for 16 years. And unfortunately, she is leaving this year. Marilyn is retiring. She told me that after she does leave, she going to move. She is also going to take care of her son and grandchildren. And most of all, she is going to shop, a lot, at 'Val-Mart. The most memorable moment she has had here at Sawdon was watching students grow into fine young adults and carrying out their dreams. The worst moment was moving to the 3rd tloor of Sawdon High School in 98 degree heat. Marilyn's favorite years since she has been here were 1991, 1993, and 1994. Those were the years that her grandchildren were born. She says that the thing that she is going to miss the most is the staff members, but actually, missing all of her students. Marilyn didn't like one teacher in particular, she liked working with them all. I asked what made her decide to retire, and she told me, "My age. Its time to get on with my life and do all the things I've always wanted to do." "Being a secretary at Sawdon is not hard," she says, "some times it's a struggle, but its defiantly not hard." The funnest fieldtrip that she said that they have gone on here was when they went to Cedar Point. The worst was when they went to Chicago. Marilyn's advise to all the students in the future is to "Do the best you can in whatever you attempt."

Joe Swix

Joe Swix was born on September 29th, 1985. He is a senior. When he graduates from Sawdon, he sees him self sitting on his butt, just enjoying life. One of the things that likes about the school is that the teachers are awesome and because there is more one on one time that the teachers spend on each student. Joe said that he hates the lunches here. His favorite teacher here at Sawdon is Rob. He also said that one of the best experiences that he has had here, was when he beat Rob at basketball. Which, by the way, is his favorite sport to play. Joe listens to all kinds of music, including rap, heavy metal, and techno. Just to list a few. Kim Miller is Joe's girlfriend, who goes to the High School. One of Joe's favorite flavors of ice cream is Oreo. Joe's favorite quote is, "Take what is useful and develop from there." One last thing that I asked Joe was if he was gong to miss it here at Sawdon after he graduates, and he replied, "I'm glad that I'm getting out of school, but I'm going to miss the teachers."

Nick Kempf

Nick is a senior this year. He was born February 9th, 1986. After school, he sees himself in Costa Rica selling Real Estate, but that's only when he gets out of college. One of the things that he likes most about this school is that its casual and you don't have to worry about what people think about you. One thing that he doesn't like about this school is the planners. Nicks favorite teacher here is Russ. The best experience that he's had here at Sawdon is playing basketball, but the worst things was spraining two ligaments in his ankle. Nick only has his two ears pierced once. He listens to

all kinds of music. His favorite sports are basketball, soccer and pool. I asked Nick what the most trouble he has been in and it was a couple of court dates and 20 months in Costa Rica.

Krista Worthington

Krista is a senior this year. She was born on May 29t,\ 1985.

Krista said after she gets out of school, she's going to college to study Criminal Justice. She wants to be a Corrections Officer. She enjoys this school because there's not as much drama as the high school. The only reason why she doesn't like it, is because she had to get up early just to come to two hours. Which, the two hours that she has is with Sam, who she says is her favorite teacher. When Krista gets out of her two hours of school, she goes to work for the state. I asked Krista if she could switch places with any celebrity, who it would be and why, and she told me that she would trade with Angelina Jolie, because she has a lot of loot and she is beautiful. Krista has a tattoo on her upper and lower back. She also has her ears, tongue and nipple pierced. The most trouble that Krista has ever been in is was her and her friend, DanieIle, stole a car.

Shawn is her favorite teacher. When I asked April if she could switch places with any celebrity, who would it be, she said, "Sandra Bullock. Because I want her man!" She listens to rap and country music. April's favorite quote is, "You only live once." 0 yea, and her favorite ice cream is strawberry.

Blake Ells

Blake was born February 22,1987. The military is where he sees him self after he graduates. He told me the he started coming to Sawdon High because he hates Grand Ledge High. Blake likes the fact that he can concentrate better here because its more laid back. But he doesn't like it here because there isn't a cafeteria. Blake's favorite teacher is Sam. He has a job, at tbe Mulliken store. I asked him if he could trade places with anyone famous and he told me, "The guitar player for Metallica because Metallica is ****'n awesome!"

Quote "Life sucks and then you die"

Calvery Fasset (Callie)

Callie was born June 13til, 1987. She is a junior this year. When Callie graduates, she sees her self calling her friends and crying because they are in the "real world". I asked her why she was here at Sawdon and she said that she is here because she wanted to be and she is very happy to be here. The reason why she said that she likes this school so much is because of how it is a big family. Then, she said that the reason why she doesn't like this school is because of all the drama, drama, drama! She told me that Shawn was her favorite teacher, but lVlarilyn is her favorite lady. I asked her if there was anyone celebrity that she would switch places with, who would it be, and she told me that she would switch with Jennifer Lopez. Because she is so "real" and beautiful. Callie has 9 piercings in her ears, one in her belly button and one in her tongue. She doesn't have a favorite kind of music, it just has to have a good beat and good lyrics. Callie's favorite quote is, "smile, because you never know who's day you will brighten!" Then, I asked her if she was dating anyone and who it was, and she told me that she is dating her all time crush, that she has had for 2 years and he is finally hers. His Dame is Travis Tupper.

Drewhaz has been skating for years, he can hit almost anything in his hometown. When I asked him where his Favorite Spots are at, his only Reply was, "No parks for me, I like the ledges and the loading dock at the high school."
