I attended NHHS in the mid

I attended NHHS in the mid to late 80's as well. I remember those tiger paws we would paint on our faces, and the black and orange strips going from side to side..GREAT MEMORIES!! When I have told my children of the wonderful memories from high school, they just look at me so strange. The 80's were the BEST OF THE BEST to attend high school. No metal detectors in schools, no sheriff deputy patrol walking through the halls. The day of the "big game" between Laney or Hoggard we would all wear face paint to school, and it was accepted as SCHOOL SPIRIT! PRIDE IN BEING A WILDCAT!! I have yearbooks full of different events where we all wore face paint. It didn't matter if you were black, white or hispanic...we showed our PRIDE! It's sad that the schools have felt the need to discontinue this GREAT and WONDERFUL tradition. Guess it's a good thing I bought my yearbooks, because as my memory will fade over the years, my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will look back at me and see what growing up in Wilmington NC was like in the late 80's while attending NEW HANOVER HIGH SCHOOL. GO WILDCATS!!
