Here are some ideas below that are good for

This would be a very nice gift to receive

styling at the Beach
I believe that this banquet is very important as
it recognizes students’ achievements. In high
school, many students do well academically but
not athletically, so they are not knovm to their
peers as excellers. However, t>y being invited to
and recognized at a fimction like the Academic
Awards Banquet, students can be known as
achievers. These students must study hard and
spend much time out of class to be a part of either
the North Carolina Scholars Program or to be a
President's Excellence recipient If you know
someone who has excelled academically, give
them a pat on the back because they have really
worked hard to be where they are today!

If you want to look stylish on the beach this
year, listen up. Finding the perfect bathing suit is
very difficult You want a bathing suit that will
flatter your body style. Some girls dig two piece
bathing suits while others like to kick back in a
one piece. Department stores have already got
their summer swim suit line in and they are
selling like crazy. The problem of buying from
a department store is that everyone buys from
them. The last thing you want to do is be caught
on the beach with another girl's swim suit on,
especially if she has a better body than you. You
might want to check out Donna Karen’s new line,
Calvin Klein, Victoria’s Secret, or some of the
There are a few things that you can purchase
to accent your bathing suit A cute skimpy cover-
up is always good. This is for running back and
forth to the motel room. Matching sandals look
great also. These are to protect your feet from the
sand spurs. You also must have a matching tote
bag and hat You have got to take your water
bottle, sun saeen and tanning oil, your romance
novel, sweat rag, lemon quench money, and
Evian water mister in something. So, why not be
stylish in doing it? To top off your fashionable
beach attire, don’t forget the sunglasses. The
Sunglass Hut has the greatest shades by Ray Ban,
Donna Karen, Guess, Stussy, Oakley andGargo-
les. So, before you hit the beach this year find a
bathing suit that flatters your body, and go from
there. Good luck on shopping, and if you do a
good job on making yourself look outrageous on
the beach, who knows, you might pick up a cutie.
Emily N.is ready to liit the beach in
May 31st is not far away, and this means that
beach time is not far away either. Beach gradu
ation can be the most exciting time of a teenager's
high school years. It is a whole week of lying in
the sun, cruising the strip, meeting lots of people,
and going to Mother Fletcher's. At Myrtle Beach
the excitement is imlimited. This week is a time
to be away from Albemarle and experience pure
freedom! It is also a time to be with your
graduating class before you venture off to college
or work. In the halls of Albemarle High you can
hear everyone talking about the big beach plans
that they have. I went around and asked what
everyone was looking forward to most, and here
is what they had to say...
DeShanne LiUy- I'll be busy spending time with
my man Big Poppa.
LoLita Jackson- I’m gonna to chill with my
friends, and pick up some honeys.
Teshika Edwards- 111 be babysitting Brico the
Dustin Poplin-1 ’11 advise everyone to stop drink
Whit Parker and Brent Whitley- We are going to
organize a beach clean-up committee, offer rides
to the impaired, and PROTECT ourselves.
Jason Hedrick- I’ve got to pick up my next
Grant Hopkins- I’m going to stay inside because
the sand scares me.
John Brooks- I’m not going because I don’t want
to fall into the devil’s plan.
Gresham Wilham- I’ll t)e playing an intense
game of coed twister.
