SENIOR CLASS HISTORY 

FRESHMAN YEAR: 

Our freshman year began at the Fall Festival, when the tradition of hazing freshman was still legal. 
Quite confused and unorganized we somehow managed to elect class officers. President Jake Dubreuil, 
Vice President Greg Lamothe, Secretary Ewa Jachimczyk and Treasurer Araina Muniz all worked 
together with our newly appointed advisors Mrs. Carlson and Mr. Cournoyer. They put us to the test 
for the first time on Thanksgiving. Striving for success at the Cournoyer homestead, we came up with 
the idea of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Executive Board along with the Infamous Donut 
Eating, Thursday morning, 7:00 a.m. sharp, although no punishments ever enforced to those tardy, 
Advisory Board worked together to form a good collaboration of Thanksgiving paraphernalia. The 
Class of 1994 dressed our guys in diapers, doing the "Carlo Worm" to see who would reign as Miss 
Turkey for the next four years. In a close match, Jake Dubreuil wormed his way to the title. Spring 
arrived with a new bone to pick: Spring Day. We rose to the occasion by threatening our peers to buy 
freeze pops or the bear would get it!!! Finally we were ready to put our freshman year behind us. 

SOPHOMORE YEAR: 

Our Executive Board expanded with President Naeema Arrastia, Vice President Angela Aucoin, 
Secretary Danielle Meunier and Treasurer Eleni Mandelenakis. Halloween was a real scare when our 
boys becoming men decided to come to school wearing their tighty whities portraying the "Superjocks." 
Football season started out on an alarming note when our Varsity Cheerleaders got arrested for showing 
what Pioneer Pride really meant. On a more positive note, our class managed to work together with 
the National Honor Society to put on a scrumptious Rigatoni and Meatball supper. We somehow 
managed to increase our skit writing ability, and came up with The Wizard of Oz starring Joe as 
Dorothy. Tragedy struck with the robbery of our beach towel money. The Prom Committee was started 
with Mr. Cournoyer and the Crowne Plaza Hotel. 

JUNIOR YEAR: 

There was a fresh beginning for the Executive Board President Jake "The Great" Wayne, Vice 
President Don Wise, Secretary Alexandra Vargas and Treasurer Elena Nina as they worked together 
to change tradition. We began our junior year by finding our new home, MCA and MCB. With torn 
jeans and dirt on our faces, we transformed ourselves into the Hillbillies. After receiving an undeserving 
second place to two Jimmy Buffet fans in coconut bras our Advisors consoled us by saying we were 
first place in their minds. Learning the tricks of the trade we began to work on the football concessions 
with the seniors. The group consisted of about five dedicated and loyal 97'ers. We broke through the 
shells by performing Yolk Fiction. With our upperclassman power increasing we took second place with 
our President still asleep. With snow on the ground Mr. Cournoyer came up with the First Annual Way 
Cool Ski Trip. We packed our bags and were off to four fun filled days at Smuggler's Notch. For our 
final fund raiser before the prom, we decided upon a Yard Sale held in Mrs. Carlson's garage. Thanks 
to Jake Wayne's wardrobe, it was a huge success. Our prom, Open Arms created new traditions and 
ideas on how a REAL prom should be conducted. Rule number one — always have home made Rice 
Krispy Treats. Rule number two — always be clear when telling the D.J. that the Prom Queen is 
SUPPOSED to be a senior. 



SENIOR YEAR: 

We entered this school anticipating seven studies a day, school sanctions, and a calendar full of skip 
days. What we really got were- school ID's a.k.a. mug shots, a security system and new telephones that 
serve numerous purposes. We were led through our last year by President Jake Wayne, Vice President 
Jackie Estrada, Secretary Jose Pena and Treasurer Greg Lamothe. What would the Class of 1997 be 
like if we didn't have Pitch Tournaments? We're hoping Bonnie's contribution to our poster will be 
acknowledged by the judges. This year our senior athletes strived to be more than just jocks. They beat 
out their opponents and brought their records to a new and higher level. Coming together as a class, 
we're making better decisions and closer friendships. Realizing our final voyage at Southbridge High 
is coming to an end, we know now we'll never be forgotten as individuals and as a class. Goodbye SHS, 
you'll miss us!!!!

Halloween 




Every year Thanksgiving means a lot 
to students here at S.H.S. The rally, 
which was won by the Seniors (of 
course), took place on the Wednesday 
before Thanksgiving. The game at 10:15 
the next day was attended by many loyal 
fans. Even though it was a heart break- 
ing 6-12 loss, we know the Pioneers will 
win in '97.

Araina, 

It seems just like yesterday that the Lord blessed us with 
a little girl, a gem from heaven for us to cherish. You ' ve grown 
up into a beautiful young woman. Through the years we 
watched you grow up. Dealing with the obstacles that life 
placed in your path, taking on responsibility and maturing. 
You remind us of the ocean. Sometimes you were still and 
patient, when you were waiting for your opportunity. Some- 
times you were stormy and made a ruckus, when you were 
making your own opportunity. Your determination (with all 
your new challenges) remind us of the ocean waves because, 
like you, with their persistence they can overcome even the 
mightiest mountain. 

We pray to God for His blessing for you. We hope and 
pray that all your dreams come true and that all your successes 
be far beyond your expectations. 

We pray to God for His blessing for you. That He may 
lead and guide you through life. Always remember your faith 
in God, the love of your family, and true friends because they 
are and should be the foundation of your support. 

We love you very much and are very proud of you. 

Dad and Allison

To Jason, 

We have watched you grow 
from a sweet little boy to an ex- 
ceptional young man. We are, and 
always will be proud of you. 

Congratulations and best of

Remember we love you very 
much.

In Memory Of 




Mr. David Byron 



Mr. Byron served as a science and computer teacher at Southbridge 
High School from 1 970 to 1996. His influence went beyond the school. 
His kindness affected many of the students and faculty of our commu- 
nity. His work as a dedicated education professional will live on in the 
hearts of all who knew him. We are honored to have known him and we 
will miss him.
