ANTENNA YEARBOOK

The pictures above show the development of The A-Blast from its earliest years to now. It all began in 1954 when the newspaper known as The A-Blast was simply named Annandale News. It wasn’t until the following year that they officially changed the name to The A-Blast Newspaper. As technology became more advanced, The A-Blast didn’t miss a beat. They progressed from typewriters to computers and from a six page newspaper once a month, to a 20-page newspaper every three weeks. Top photo, shows the staff of 1957 culminating material to piece toghether their issue. Second photo from the top, Susan Main strikes the keys of her typewriter during deadline. Above, Ingrid Thomas takes advantage of new technology and copies her story on to her computer. Right, current AHS student Andrew Peters types up an interview on a iMac.

ANNANDALE H.S.

Above, senior Julio Menditea plays the guitar on the stairs in a back hallway by the auditorium, just as Cynthia Forbes did back in 1973. Left, sophomores Nathan Corcoran and Brooke Thadeus laugh during lunch, looking almost identical to a photo of students Nancy Wilson and John Rollins Watkins. Right, the science hall is bustling with students going from class to class, similar to the rush of students on their way to Young Life.
