assistants, and students in the suites, have a night out at 
llardo Mexican Restaurant in Fairview Heights. 

The residence life staff is headed by Steve 
Deckard. The staff itself consists of two 
residence directors, and eleven residence 
assistants. One male and one female serve 
as the residence directors. The female resi- 
dence director resides in Barnett hall, and 
the male resides in the McKendree suites. 
The residence assistants are made up of stu- 
dents that apply for the position each se- 
mester. The residence assistants reside in 
the dorm with the other students. One resi- 
dence assistant is on each floor of each 
dorm, and one assistant lives on each end of 
the suites. Resident assistants help with 
New Student Orientation, plan activities 
for students, enforce rules, and provide sup- 

Fall semester 1988

The Student Government Association 
has done a variety of items during the 
1988-1989 school year. They have held 
Freshman elections, promoted the 
League of Women Voters, helped get the 
News Democrat back on campus, helped 
get a geography class, looked into ex- 
tending the library hours, helped get 
Coke on campus, looked into renovating 
Deneen, and many more items. 

The Student Government Senators for the 1988-1989 
school year included: Amy Blackburn, Scott Leach, Brian 
Frederking, Kristin Prichard, Anne Pfitzner, Tom O'Con- 
nor, Janet Casey, Ptosha Rockingham, Tim Maloney, 
Kristy McQuade, Christine Addison, Tillman Ashmore, 
Donnelle Deine, Kent Coultas and Frank Brello. The Ju- 
dicial Board included: Beth Heinemann, George Wyress, 
Theresa Whitworth, Carla Hammersley, Kim Melton, 
Jeff Wingate, and Randy Faust. The Executive Board 
members included: Tom Forsyth — President, Artive 
Vangampler — Vice President, Brian Hilgert — Student 
Activities Chairperson, Joel Hastings — Treasurer, Vicki 
Von Hatten — Secretary, and Judy Baker — Student 


The Business Leaders of Tomorrow offi- 
cers for the 1989 school year were: Bill 
Cooper — President, Mike Kirkpatrick 
- Vice President, Rosalie Wand - 
Secretary, Laura Kelemetc — Treasur- 

Business Leaders of Tomorrow, commonly referred to as 
"BLT" was started on campus two years ago. The club is 
open to all students who are majoring in any area of 
business, or those students who are currently enrolled in a 
business class. Some of the club's activities include having 
guest speakers and taking tours of area businesses. The 
Mentor Program where students were matched with 
McKendree Alumni was also very successful. The group is 
also planning a job Fair for the Fall 1989 semester. 

The McKendree Review 

1st row — Jacki Bugg, Rosalie Wand. Kristi McQuade. 2nd row — Michele Stacey-Doyle (advisor), 
Chris Albrecht, Nixie McKinzie. Jodi Edgar. 3rd row — Chad Merryman. Kim Miller. Cindy Zerbst, 
Michelle Nettemeyer, Kristin Pritchard, Anne Pfitzner. 4th row — Laurie Kolar. Ptosha Rocking- 
ham (editor), Tina Gilkerson. and Tom O'Connor. 

The 1988-89 school year was a year of change for the McKendree Review. 
Junior Ptosha Rockingham took over the post of editor mid-semester from 
junior, Brian Frederking. The size of the Review staff tripled from the 
1987-88 school year, allowing the bi-monthly publication to expand to 12- 
page issues. The staff this year also had the advantage of using a desk-top 
publishing system purchased by the school. Under the guidance of business 
managers pat Barry. Tina Gilkerson, and Kim Miller, the advertising rev- 
enues of the paper grew nearly lOO^c. All of these changes added up to a 
greatly improved McKendree Review, 

The McKendrean 

Kelly Scott — editor 

Carol Friedland — Co-editor & Jennifer May — staff assistant 

The 1988-89 McKendrean staff was truly challenged. This year's staff worked 
hard to meet deadlines, although it seemed there was more work than the staff 
could handle. One limitation the staff encountered is the size of the book. McKen- 
dree is under a contract that limits the book to 100 pages. This year's staff worked 
on changing this stipulation to increase the size of the book for next year. The 
staff also went through the admissions office to get the names of incoming 
students that expressed an interest in working on the book. Editor Kelly Scott and 
co-editor Carol Friedland plan to share the position next year as co-editors, and 
they are definitely hoping for a larger staff.

Laurel Repinski, Sheri Boehm, Tony 
Nevill, Louie Frick, Scott Leach, Dee

The Programming Board has sponsored many different 
activities on campus during the 1988-1989 school year. 
Programming Board begins the year with entertainment 
during New Student Orientation. During Homecoming 
Week the Programming Board sponsored a variety of ac- 
tivities including Carl Rosen, a singer, Craig Karges, a 
mentalist, a Victorian Photographer and the Homecom- 
ing dinner an dance at Augustine's featuring KY98 Lance 
Hildebrand. After vacation, the members sponsored a 
welcome back dance featuring London USA. During the 
spring semester, students were entertained by a variety of 
singers and a ventriloquist. Programming Board ends the 
school year with the all school picnic featuring comedians, 
singers, and novelty acts. This year Programming Board 
also offered students an opportunity to see all the latest 
films in a film series every Monday in February.

Alpha Phi Omega has been in existence on 
the McKendree College campus since 
1972. APO is the only national fraternity 
on campus and has an emphasis on both 
service and social activities. Once again, 
APO organized a blood drive at McKen- 
dree. APO also organized a dance featuring 
alternative music as well as entering a float 
in the homecoming parade.

this year. This year AO bought a subscrip- 
tion to the Belleville News Democrat for 
students at Lebanon Grade school. The pa- 
pers can assist the teachers in instructing 
the students on current events as well as a 
variety of projects. AO had their annual car 
wash in the spring and their annual alumni 
dance. AO also participated in intramurals 
and the "All Greek" float trip. In the 
spring, AO welcomed five new actives to 
the group; Tracee Franklin, Kristy 
Shelly Nettemeyer, Laurel Repinski, and 
Cindy Wachtel.

Gamma Sigma Sigma, McKendree's largest 
Greek organization had another successful 
year. Sigma, a national service sorority, was 
involved in many activities in the 1988-89 
school year. Highlights included Victim's Day 
and the Adopt-a-Child program. Victim's 
Day, a memorial for victims of violent crimes 
was held at Eads Bridge. The Adopt-a-Child 
program allowed Sigma to help feed and 
clothe a needy inner city child in Connecticut. 
Gamma Sigma Sigma also had their first for- 
mal dance which was held at the Holiday Inn 
in Collinsville. Sigma was also involved with 
organizing a McKendree dance with AO and 
Clio. In addition, Sigma participated in the 
"all Greek" float trip as well as being actively 
involved in intramurals. Second semester of- 
fices were held by Julie Purcell — President, 
Kristi McQuade — 1st Vice President, Kim 
Miller — 2nd Vice President, Nicole Wear —

1988-89 was a rather hectic year for the Clion- 
ian Literary Society, due to a rebirth. All of 
the actives in the fall of 1988 were brand new 
to the society, and thus unaware of where to 
begin with a brand new Clio. The majority of 
the year was spent gathering information from 
alumni and rewriting our constitution. In ad- 
dition we were involved in the Juvenile Diabe- 
tes Association of the greater St. Louis area. It 
may have seemed like a quiet year, but all of 
the actives can vouch that it was a very busy 

The society wants to thank Kevin Decker for 
all of his research into Kappa Lambda Iota 
and his support this year. Clio may be small, 
but we feel our sisterhood and organization is 
strong! Clio is back!! 


A. Wayne Sinnock and Michael E. Bejos 

Dear McKendreans, 

To say that this has been a trying year for the Philosophian Literary Society would be a gross 
understatement. This has been the year that Philo has seen its active membership fall from ten to 
two under the ax of academic ineligibility. Mr. A. Wayne Sinnock and myself, being the remaining 
two, were entrusted with the awesome task of restoring Philo to as close to it's former glory as is hu- 
manly possible. 

Even though the obstacles seemed insurmountable, Mr. Sinnock and I did a fairly decent job of it. 
We enlisted five admirable pledges and five wonderful little sisters in an effort to repopulate our 
gaunt ranks, and Mr. Sinnock and I carried on Philo tradition as best we could. 

Yes, this has been perhaps the saddest year in all of Philo's proud and colorful history. With our 
membership depleted and our hall absconded it has not been an easy path to walk but it has 
certainly been an enriching one, and I will be forever be indebted to Philo for the memorable 
experiences it has blessed me with. I only hope that future members will encounter less difficulty 
and as much enjoyment as I have. 

Yours Fraternally, 



Michael E. Bejos

Homecoming Queen 

Robin Malloney 


Although the Bearcats were upset by National 
College of Education in the first round of the 
District 20 playoffs, they enjoyed a fine 1988 
soccer season. Once again the Bearcats proved 
to be a national power as they finished the 
season ranked third in the final regular season 
M.A.I. A. national poll. Highlights from the 
season include a 3-1 victory over Sangamon 
State in Springfield, IL as well as a victory 
over Rockhurst College in the Homecoming 
Game. Several Bearcat players were honored 
for their outstanding performances on the 
field: Steve Bee — All District, All Midwest, 
All America; Chris Bee — Academic All 
America; Mark Reinholz — All District, Aca- 
demic All America. Seniors Mark Reinholz 
and Tony Ellis were also picked to represent 
McKendree College in the first N.A.I. A. Sen- 
ior Bowl Game in Tempe, Arizona.

The 1988-89 Volleyball season ended with 
an excellent 26-10 record. The girls started 
out winning and extended the season to the 
semi-final round of state. The team was, 
however, plagued by injuries, one of which 
was, senior. Deb Avery at state playoffs. 
Freshman, Shelly Nettemeyer said, "We 
really had a great season. At first, it was 
really tough for me to adjust to college play 
but after some practice, the season was 
great.*' Most of the girls stated that the 
high point of the season was their victory 
over St. Francis. The team is only losing one 
player, Deb Avery, to graduation. With all 
the girls returning, junior. Deb Mantos 
said, 'Tm really looking forward to next 
season. We definitely have a chance of win- 
ning state."

1988 Men's 

The 1988-89 season marked the first year the Bearcats 
displayed their talent in the new Convocation Center. Al- 
though it was a year of rebuilding, the Bearcats still man- 
aged a winning season and a bid to the N.A.I. A. District 
20 playoffs. Outstanding performances were turned in by 
Kevin Schwartz, Dmitri Joe, and Mike Ogden. Newcomer 
Darren Randle also had a fine season for the Bearcats.

Intramurals provided a time to let off 
steam or just have fun. They allowed 
students the opportunity to get to- 
gether with friends, to participate in 
the games or to just sit and watch. 
This year's sports included volleyball, 
basketball, softball and tennis. 









Lady Cats 

The 1988-89 women's basketball team's 
final record was 12-14, which included 
wins over Division II Culver-Stockton, 
rival Greenville, and first-ever playoff 
win over Trinity Christian. Junior Sue 
Gilmer had an outstanding year and was 
named to the All-District team for her 
efforts. The seniors on this year's team 
were Cindy Porter and Rita Ledeker, 
who also had very successful seasons. 
With many younger players returning, 
the team has a very bright future.

The 1988-89 pompon squad 
achieved something this year that 
no other squad had ever achieved, 
they were sixteen members strong. 
The squad performed at half-time 
of the homecoming soccer game 
and half-time of several home bas- 
ketball competitions. The squad 
had new uniforms made this year 
by squad member Jacki Bugg's 
mother, Jean. The squad holds try- 
outs early each fall, and the season 
ends with the final home basket- 
ball game. 

McKendree Softball 

The Lady Bearcats Softball team finished 14- 
19 for 1989 — not quite well enough to reach 
tournament play. 

The season highlight was a loss at the Culver- 
Stockton Tournament on April 21-22, said 
Coach Rether Johnson. 
"We played the number-one ranked team in 
the nation and were leading 2-1 going into the 
seventh inning," he said. "They wound up beat- 
ing us 3-2, but nobody expected us to do that 
well." The Lady 'Cats won the second-place 

Pitching was a key in that second-place finish. 
The Lady 'Cats had three good pitchers this 
season in freshman Carol Caldwell of Albion, 
junior Shari Hasenstab of Belleville and senior 
Sandy Kunz of Freeburg. 
Carol posted a 7-4 record, and an outstanding 
1.16 ERA. In 73 innings she gave up only 59 
hits and 19 runs. 

Sandy, who also played outfield, led the offense 
with a .356 batting average, a .500 on-base 
percentage and 14 RBI. 
Sophomore Beth Heinemann hit .347 with 16 
RBI, three home runs and seven doubles. Her 
ging percentage was .516.

Under new head coach Dennis Pieper 
the McKendree baseball team opened 
their season in Sanford Florida and had 
a successful spring trip returning with a 
4-3 record. The Cats had quite a few 
highlights during the season which were: 
A doubleheader split with SIU-Ed- 
wardsville and a District 20 playoff 
birth. Key performances were turned in 
by seniors Ronnie Feher, Chris Land- 
graf, and Mike Frey. Chris Price and 
Kevin Hagarty also had very good years 
as juniors. Mark Terveer and Dan 
Schaller were key performers on the 
mound for the Bearcats.

Editor's Page 

There are several people I would like to thank for making this book 
possible. Although the staff itself consisted of only three people, 
there are many others who contributed their time, photos, ideas, 
and information. In my eyes, this book captures the best of the 
1988-89 school year. Hopefully, this book will bring each of you 
many fond memories in the years ahead. My special thanks go to: 
David Ottinger, who always helped the best he could despite his 
own problems and lack of time, to my fantastic friend and "co- 
worker", Carol Friedland, to my roommate, Annette Bochantin, 
and my boyfriend, Jeff Sommers, for their patience and under- 
standing. Once again, thanks to all who contributed to the book.
