A Day in the Life at DHS ... Life at Diboll High School is no different than any other high school. Teenagers all think and act just about the same. Comments range from "Did I do my homework last night?" to "Oh, come on Miss, let me slide by this one. I promise I'll do it tonight." These photos are just an overview of some of the things that happen on a typical, ordinary day at Diboll High School.

Diboll' s Centennial Diboll Day proved to be the most exciting event ever for hometown folks and former residents who returned to see this important event take place. For everyone, celebrating Diboll's

BUDDY TEMPLE, grandson of T.L.L. Temple who was the founder Southern Pine Lumber Company, the predecessor of Temple-Inland Corp., gives Diboll's Centennial address. THIS YEAR'S 1994 Diboll Day Queen candidates are (1-r) Group 4, Jacqueline McGuire; Group 3, Celsa Reyes; Group 2, Michelle Cordell; and Group l's candidate, the 1994 Diboll Day Queen, Jelyitsa Perez. Jacqueline was runnerup. Total receipts are $317,838.74. Jelyitsa's group raised $99,186; Jacqueline, $88,425; Celsa, $65,559; and Michelle's group raised $64,559. THE BARBERSHOP quartet, Vocal Express, serenades Jelyitsa Perez after she is crowned Diboll Day Queen.


100 year anniversary brought to mind how Diboll used to be. One landmark that symbolizes Diboll's early history is the old commissary store owned by the old Southern Pine Lumber Company and located on Hines. The old commissary served early Diboll well until the 1950s. Today, it stands as a reminder to everyone of an earlier time in Diboll's history. The important events that oc-

curred in Diboll' s Centennial year were many, such as the dedication of the Lindsey Springs historical marker. Lindsey Springs was the first SPL Company logging camp. The Diboll Garden Club distributed the famous and historical trees to the city's organizations and businesses for planting in honor of the city's Centennial year. The City of Diboll also dedicated its own historical marker in 1994.

Students Take Over!

Students at Diboll High School designated a day for certain students to take over the school. OnFebruaryl4, 1995, the faculty became students again, and a few students tried their hand at being teachers and administrators. It was a fun experience for most of the students, but for some, it was a different story.

Traditionally, theStudentCouncilhas had one main duty on every high school campus--that is to oversee student elections. All different types of elections are monitored -- Homecoming queen and her court, Mr. and Miss Diboll High School, Senior personalities, class favorites and officers and the next year's Student Council officers elections as well. Student Council officers are responsible for getting the ballots

together and for counting the votes. In a school the size of DHS, this is a large job. In addition to taking care of elections, they decorated the stadium for Homecoming. They helped out with the Teacher's Day Off. They presented a video to the Board members called "A Day at Diboll High School." Also, they presented the sportsmanship awards during half-time ceremonies at the football games.

To become considered for admission to DHS's National Honor Society, students must meet the minimum weighted grade point average of 4.3. But having that GPA doesn't guarantee that students can become a member. "Mr. Cowan appoints a faculty-council of five teachers and they decide on the students by their scholarship, character, leadership and service," Sponsor Mary Ingram said. The purpose of the NHS is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership and to develop character in students.

1st Drill Team

The Dazzlers

The Diboll Dazzlers, known as the drill team, was organized for the first time at DHS in August,


1994. Diboll' s school administration wanted to form a drill team and a week before the first football game, Mrs. Janet Brockman was asked to sponsor it. The Dazzlers started out with 17 girls and ended up with 10. Mrs. Brockman said the attrition was attributed to several causes: they didn't get to go to summer camp and they didn't realize the work was as hard as it turned out to be. Also, many girls were involved in other activities. The Dazzlers performed at football half-time ceremonies, basketball games and atAngelina College. The Lumberjack Band accompanied the Dazzlers at football games. The other Dazzler sponsor was Mrs. Lisa Taylor. DAZZLERS HOLD their heads high as they get ready to perform at a pep rally.

The Lumberjacks started the season offdebuting before the Diboll crowd with a 19-13 win over the Bullard Panthers. It was the first time since 1991 that the Lumberjacks had won their season opener. The following week they defeated Kirbyville 2620. The 1994 'Jacks were now 2-0, and in 1993 they only won two games the whole year, and the year before they finished 0-10. The 2-0 'Jacks got their first loss against a tough Newton team, but bounced back with a late 28-27 ·victory against Montgomery. The team would go on to lose the Homecoming game against state ranked Alto, but came back roaring, just waiting for district play to start. They won the first two games with Corrigan 3112 and Huntington, 44-20. That brought their record to 5-2 overall and 2-0 in district. A game that seemed to be going the 'Jacks way against San Augustine ended up being the turning point for the rest of the season. The 'Jacks were up 14-0 but for some reason or another couldn't hold the lead and lost 17-14, marking the downfall of the season. The 'Jacks went on to lose the last two games against Center and Rusk, bringing their season's record to an even 5-5, (2-3) in District 19AAA.. The season was not all disappointing in that a school record was nearly broken by Senior Archie Jackson as he gained 1,509 yards on 263 carries. Also, Cornerback Malcolm Starghill signed a $34,000 full scholarship with Texas Southern University in Houston. Several Lumberjacks were named to the 1994 19-AAA all-district team including linebacker Alex Forney, running backArchieJackson, running back Corey Horace, linebacker Robert Garcia, cornerback Malcolm Starghill, flanker Mike Suarez, cornerback Jerry King, defensive tackle Trey Grandgeorge, defensive tackle Donovan Shepherd, offensive tackle Joe Stephens, defensive back Joe Garcia and defensive back Travis Jones. - By Malcolm Starghill

Jerry Kingwasfirstin the llOm hurdles and second in the 300m hurdles. Kreston Paige finished second in the llOm hurdles. Malcolm Starghill finished second in the 400m dash and Zicorian Coleman was second in the 200m dash. Also finishing second was Alonzo Alvarez in the 800m run. The mile relay team of Alvarez, Starghill, Joe Garcia and Zicorian Coleman showed signs of excellence early in the year. The relay won first in almost every meet. They were beaten by Rusk, the defending state champs, at district but came back to beat Rusk twice at the regional meet in Brenham. The 'Jacks set a new schoolrecordof3:23.7inthe preliminaries, but could not duplicate their efforts in the finals, finishing third. At the regional meet, Alvarez finished sixth in the 800m run and Farley placed sixth in the high jump. Starghill competed in the 400m dash and King ran the 300m hurdles. Jonathan Gann also competed in the pole vault. All of these track team members performed well. It was a good year for the young track stars and they are looking for an even stronger one next year. The team will graduate four key track team members: Starghill, Farley, Jeremiah Phipps and Trey Grandgeorge. But the underclassmen will try to fill their track shoes.

ALLEN FARLEY ties the school high jump record of 6' 6" with this jump. Joseph Phipps set the record in 1994.

LUMBERJACKS ALEX Forney, Kreston Paige and Jerry King are feeling great about winning the 'Jacks' track meet.

rockett Proves to be 'Jacks' Nemesis

WILLIE VASQUEZ tries to tag the runner as he slides head first into second base.

i'OTEDMOSTValuablePlayeroftheyear on the baseball team is Robert Garcia.

The 1995 Lumberjack varsity baseball team met their nemesis when they played the Crockett Bulldogs in their second playoff game at Nacogdoches High School. The score was 7-0. The first playoffgame was May 16 in Humble when the 'Jacks played havoc with a good Montgomery High School team. The final score was 10-5. The 'Jacks record this year is 17-7 in District 19-3A. Central won first place in this district, going undefeated in district play. This year's other 19-3A teams were a little different than usual because of their players' slower speeds. But the 'Jacks could easily bunt the ball more and get on base because the team had exceptional speed. The 'Jacks strong points were team speed and defense. Their weak point, according to Head Coach Jeff Stifle, was "lack of concentration." Senior Allen Farley, one of the 'Jacks leading pitchers, won seven and lost three, and had a 2.35 earned run average. Sophomore Pitcher Francisco Morado, who was 9-2 with a 3.04 ERA, relieved Farley on the mound, and their good pitching pulled the 'Jacks out of some marginal games. Senior Robert Garcia had the best batting percentage with .330 for the season, and he also led in the RBI department. Another graduating senior, Mike Suarez, was also a great part ofthe winning team. He had the most stolen bases, 16. Suarez's great speed helped out in this department.

MIKE SUAREZ bunts the ball so he can fly down the first base line.

WE'RE INVESTING HEAVILY IN NEW PLANTS RIGHT HERE IN EAST TEXAS. The world is changing. Barriers that once stood in the path of a global economy are crumbling. New markets and new opportunities are opening up all over the world . In addition to our domestic markets, Temple-Inland intends to capitalize on this increasing world demand for top-quality wood and paper products. Products that can help improve the quality of life from Latin America to the Pacific Rim, just as they have here at home. During our 100 year partnership with East Texas, we have enjoyed steady growth by efficiently manufacturing useful products from an abundant, renewable resource . Dimension lumber, fiberboard sheathing, hardboard siding and particleboard are important parts of our product line. But we're constantly developing new products that maximize usage of our precious fiber. Engineered lumber, medil:lm-density fiberboard and a new, lightweight bleached paperboard are among the products that .allow us to utilize 98% of every log. Our commitment to the environment begins in the forest and



continues through the manufacturing process. Waste that cannot be recycled into products is used to produce energy for manufacturing. And for each tree harvested, 6 new seedlings are replanted.


We want to be a good neighbor.

Temple-Inland recognizes the importance of world markets. But with expanded manufacturing facilities and 1.2 million acres of forests in East Texas, we'll continue to grow the economy right here at home. Just like we always have.
