The reproduction of, or unauthorized use of this
yearbook in any part will be considered the most
serious of offenses and will result in our
prosecuting the guilty party to the highest extent
that the law allows. That being said, the 1999-
2000 Milestones staff, in the ongoing effort to
avoid all matters serious, has chosen for its
theme, "Spoofs." This broad and vague choice
has enabled us to provide our readers with
humorous copy and a plethora of random
pictures which might not otherwise be included
in an ordinary yearbook. As a staff, we hereby, claim
Here's a story...

no responsibility for any materials considered
offensive and all complaints pertaining to material
within this volume should be directed to one
"Martha Grace" whose office is located to the right
of the entrance of Morrison Gym. If the material
within this volume is found to be interesting/
humorous/ creative/ brilliant, then the Milestones
staff of '99-' 00 takes full credit for their work and
applauds your excellent taste. And so, in closing,
we invite you to sit back, relax, kick off your shoes,
and enjoy what we believe to the best yearbook

William Wordsworth once said, "The best portions of a
good man 's life [are] his little, nameless, unremembered
acts of kindness and love." It is not ventured to
undermine the wisdom of William Wordsworth, but one
could argue that these seemingly small acts of kindness
in the end are the most indelible upon our memories. It is
a rare and precious occurrence indeed that in the course
of our lives we meet an individual who both strengthens
our mind and touches our heart. Yet daily, students here
at Harpeth Hall see one who embodies both these
characteristics. This unique and generous individual
inspires us in many ways to put others first and to give
of ourselves wherever we can. Any Client, nerd will tell
you that Fridays are not complete without her final
urgings of "Bright smiling faces on Monday!" In addition
to the busy schedules of her four children, she always
manages to squeeze a Harpeth Hall athletic event or
play in on the weekend. She acts at one time or another
as a mother to all of us. Whether it is a reassuring pat on
the shoulder, treats at Halloween, fresh-baked bread
before class, or simply a friendly smile and words of
assurance, she is always giving of her time and energy.
As a result, she is loved and admired by sophomore and
senior alike, all of who are proud to be called one of
"her girls." In her own special way, she changes her
students for the better and that is what education is truly
about. The upper school lovingly dedicates the 1999-
2000 Milestones to the incomparable Ms. Melinda
Mrs. Sally Lee
She is the reason Harpeth Hall students are able to
battle through AP Statistics and AP Calculus in the
Upper School. Patient, intelligent, and caring, she has
taught both full and part time math to 5"' and 6"' graders
for a number of years, and she even taught science
for a brief time. Sally Uptegrove Lee is married to Bob
Lee and has a daughter, Rachel, who is a junior in
college in Texas. Her dynamic style of teaching and
her innovation with, "Snafooz," make students from all
around love her. She is especially known for her ability
to sew sock monkeys and has taught many students
how to make them. You '11 never see her without a smile
on her face. Sally Lee is known for her dedicated
perseverance and contagious love for math. When
asked about her, freshman Emelie Matthews said, "Mrs.
Lee is the reason math is important to me now."

Ms. Ann Teaff
; headmistress of the
Harpeth Hall School, Ms. Ann Teaff has
impressed faculty, parents and alumni alike with
her vivacious personality, and her palpable
creative energy. Her genuine effort to
incorporate into her job description daily
interaction with, and concern for every Harpeth
Hall girl has made her a favorite among the
student population. Ms.Teaffs enthusiasm is
consistently a contagious force within the
school community.Whether it be cheerleading
at sporting events or applauding performances,
she is a visible and integral part of the HH
experience. Her preference of one- on-one
conversations in her office- which is always
open- over the growning trend of "e-
communications" exemplifies her desire to make
a difference in the daily lives of others. Her
smiling face and kind heart endear her to all as
she inspires us all to be admirable, honest,
loving, and caring women. Ms. Teaff is an
incredible leader, a friend and a supreme role
model. We are so very pleased to have her as
our head of school.

Mrs. LaVoe Mulgrew and Mrs. Marie Maxwell
Apparent to every Harpeth Hall student in the
1999-2000 school year was a monumental change
in the atmosphere about the upper school. This
shift, to a more personable, less strenuous
working enviornment, spread from the heart of
the school and provided for a generally happier,
more well-adjusted student body. This change in
mentality was accomplished largely through the
work of two very industrious, forthright, and
intelligent women. Mrs. La-Voe Mulgrew, Head
of the Upper School, is a favorite among students.
A former teacher of Sophomore and Junior
English, her quick wit, her "Oh-please! Stop-
whining-and-get-it-done" attitude, and
willingness to listen make her both an accessible
and receptive mentor to all. Mrs. Maxwell, as Dean
of Students, has shouldered the emmense task of
regulating and supervising student activity on
all levels. She provides to those in need, a friendly
ear and helping hand. With these two remarkable
women at the helm, it should be smooth sailing
for Harpeth Hall in the years to come.
Mrs. Mulgrew poses with her
Maxwell reclines against a

Irs. Malone casually poses at her desk.
A windblown Mrs. Simmons flashes her
pearly whites in front of the track.
She began her eareer as a science teacher and has
now settled in as Head of the Middle School. Mrs.
Malone has been given the sought-after job of
leading the hoards of noisy children that make up
the Middle School. Thanks to her efforts, students
entered the Middle School buildings in August to
find more than just a monochromatic color
scheme... there were green walls accented with
purple lockers. From Monday morning assemblies
to the new Saturday detentions, Mrs. Malone leads,
guides, and endures. She is more than just an
administrator, she is a friend to the young ones.
Luckily, this amazing woman is not alone in her
arduous task of leadership. Mrs. Simmons, the
Middle School's Student Activities Directorjoined
Mrs. Malone in this task. While continuing to teach
math, Mrs. Simmons is in charge of the student-
favored demerit system, the exciting field trips, and
the beloved student council. Without these two
dedicated women, the Middle School would
probably fall apart.

This spring the pride in the air was palpable as Harpeth Hall
inducted seventeen new girls into the Cum Laude Society.
These girls became a part of the prestigous national honor
society which allows schools to induct a certain minute
percentage of their junior and senior classes annually. This
honor depends upon the student's academic achievement,
intellectual curiosity, high moral character (sometimes), and
how much she bribed the sponsor to get in. Decked out in the
"appropriate" white dresses, the girls lined up on stage to
receive recognition for their amazing academic work. Students
sat in awe as Sarah Allen, the group s president, gave a speech
on the wonder that is the Cum Laude society. Then the featured
speaker Mrs. Merrie Clark, last years Owen Chair recipient,
gave a rousing speech on the history of women and how it
relates to Harpeth Hall. The night of their induction, the old
and new members gathered together to get their intellectual
juices flowing. To stimulate their minds, the girls watched
"Beverly Hills, 902 1 0" and read several books from the literary
award-winning Baby-Sitters Club series. Without these girls,
the world of intellectuals would not be the same.

The US Student Council
The Student Council has again this year taken a
visible and active role in the organizing and funding of
student events. Kicking off the year with a great Concert
on the Lawn, the ' c )9-'00 student council set a high precedent
for themselves. They have managed however, to follow up
with several fun and exciting school functions, thus
heightening our anticipation for what is to come in the k 00-
'01 school year. Among these events are the ever-popular
Winter Formal, Valentine's Dance, Halloween Dance, a
much-needed teacher appreciation day, and the new and
revolutionary "Suggestion Box." The Suggestion Box has
developed into a precious commodity for the entire school.
It has changed student life in every way possible. It is
beautiful. But in all seriousness, the high activity level of
the Student Council is indicative of an over-all awareness
ot\ and desire for, student involvement in the school
community. Led by President Amy Campbell and Vice-
President Leah High, the council is a fore-runner in the
improvement of our day-to-day lives.

thirteen members of this year's Honor
Council were elected by their peers to uphold
the tenets of the Honor Code. They are
responsible for setting an example for their
peers and for demystifying the Council and
its purpose. The Honor Council also hears
cases of suspected Honor Code violations
and then makes a decision based on
evidence, testimony, and witnesses. Lead
by Katie "the Klepto" Hill and seniors Sarah

This year the Student Faculty has joined forces with the Student
Council to solve some of the smaller, more student-related
problems of day to day life in the Harpeth Hall community. The
group discusses everything from water bottles to parking to
tennis shoes, and any other issue that arises during the school
years progression. Unlike the exclusive Student Council,
Student Faculty has attemped to increase attendance beyond
the immediate group of girls and faculty members by opening
the meetings to all students who are interested in the topic of
the day. The eleven permanent members yearn to hear opinions
other than their own because, as everyone knows, more than
just eleven girls complain about what is wrong with the school.
Want to change the world, start small. . .want to change the
school, go to Mr. Springman s room and make your voice heard.

The Art Club
Beauty is supposedly in the eye of the beholder. This year the
Art Club made the move to share that beauty with the
community. A public mural and a Time to Rise project are two
such examples. Community art was also brought to Harpeth
Hall, with the club helping to set up and take down art exhibits.
Led by President Catherine Carroll and Vice-President
Fabienne Diskin. these girls attempt to add to the splendor of
the hallowed halls by making the student body more aware of
art in such a scholastically driven environment. In addition,
these talented, aspiring artists, create a piece to be auctioned
off at the Main Event. They also practiced art by workin;
diligently on the color by number coloring books. This group,
run by the officers and sponsored by Ann Blackburn, sought
out. participated in. and enjoved art for arts sake.

earnest attempt to keep our school clean, also set up recycling

if their schedules allow it and knit for an hour or so. They don't
just knit to knit either - last year they knitted over fifty scarves
and hats that Barbara Jordan (of Barb and Jude) was able to
distribute to homeless people around Nashville. When asked what
why these girls have chosen to spend their free time knitting,
Mrs. Girgus said, ''Knitting is a truly meaningful pastime for the
girls. Not only is it a work in progress which can be extended
over a long period of time, but we have made a contribution to
the community as well."

Law and Order
Mock Trial/Law Club
What is the coolest yet one of the most secretive groups on campus?
No, not the Honor Council (we said coolest). It's Mock Trial! This
year s Mock team proved to be one of the best, if not the best, that
Harpeth Hall has ever seen. With four seniors leading the pack, the
Mockies went on to beat the curse - and MBA - at city for the
second year in a row. Every year, these Mockies work hard for
three months preparing a case that has been written specifically for
Mock. The case is filled with affidavits ad rule of evidence which
the girls must learn in order to be the best. Mockies eat, sleep,
breathe Mock Trial. They are extremely dedicated and work harder
than anybody would expect, but they still manage to make time
for their annual sleepover. Said Erika of her last year of Mock, "I
am going to miss these people so much, especially Bahar. This
has been the best year for mock. I feel that I have gotten so close
to everyone on this team. I know that I will always remember this
experience." All the Mockies agree with her sentiments because
they will leave with good friends, good experiences, and the law
under their belts

The Outdoor Club
The Outdoor Program this year has been a great success. Led by
students Kerry Bartoe and Kate Lainhart, sponsored by Dr. Hopple,
and directed by wilderness man David Crais, this program has taken
Harpeth Hall students on many an exciting and adventurous trip into
the wild outdoors. They have taken trips like backpacking through
the Appalachian Trail, caving in the Cumberland Plateau, canoeing,
hiking through the dangerous Green Hills Mall, and more. The program
also offeres a great Spring Break trip to Colorado and New Mexico
for cross-country skiing. Participants in these trips have loved the
experiences they have had. They have learned many vital skills for
surviving in the wilderness, explored many new aspects of the
outdoors, and bonded with teachers and students of all ages. The
wilderness has taught them how to survive, how to cook in the wild,
how to set up camp and enjoy the beauty of sleeping under the stars,
and most of all - how to have an incredible time in the Great Outdoors!
Lost in the woods, but still having fun.

The Spanish club is a group of Spanish speaking
students that love salsa music — and salsa. Led
by Sarah Hargrove and Keely Robeson, and in
cooperation with the other language clubs, they
started off their year with the Food Fest- an
international event if you will. Club activities
include eating dinner at El Palenque, Satco and
many others wonderful Mexican establishments,
as well as gathering at each other's "casas" for
movie nights. The club also conducted an
assembly regarding travels to Spanish-speaking
countries. Membership in the Spanish Club
proved to be a fun and exciting way for Harpeth
Hall students to get involved in Spanish culture
while having un buen tiempo.

Dead Poet's Society
Hallmarks Editors (LtoR): Kate Berry, Sarah Allen, and Alyssa
Though Hallmarks only comes out twice a year, the four editors
put much time and energy into the literary magazine. The editors
— Alyssa Abkowitz (Layout Editor), Sarah Allen (General Editor),
Kate Berry (Layout Editor), and Molly Kaplan (Submissions
Editor) -begin their job by asking students to submit both poetry
and prose works for consideration. Then they harrass their friends
to submit works, too. Sometimes teachers even submit their entire
class's extremely personal essays without the knowledge of their
students. But by the end of the semester, the editors along with
the Hallmarks staff members, gather at someone's house to eat
pizza and try to pick between twenty and twenty-five works from
the one hundred or so pieces that are submitted to them. After the
poetry and short fiction pieces are chosen, then the editors hunker
down to work in Mr. Croker's room. The process is relatively
short, compared to the layout and editing process of Logos and
Milestones, but it is hard nonetheless. The end result, though, is
always highly successful and popular with students.

worked extremely hard on, "Roses are red..."

They stay late into the night, but they're not the maintenance
men. They've sacrificed their social lives for the good of the
school, but they're not the chess club. They work their tails
off, but only the other dedicated publications editors (hey,
we had to plug for Milestones) know who they are. We're
talking about Logos II Editor-in-Chief Katie Hill and Logos
Sponsor Denise Croker, of course. Hill and a group of eight
other editors under the tutelage of Mrs. Croker and Mrs.
O'Keefe wrote, edited, shot pictures for, and layed out five
issues this year, including the ever-popular April Fools issue.
Other editors included: Cornelia Rowe, Cynthia Gray,
Fabienne Diskin. Alyssa Abkowitz, Molly Kaplan, Sarah
Allen, Jessica Lundin, and Lesley Foglia. Despite sometimes-
high tension, stress, and deadlines. Logos still ran smoothly
throughout the year. "When Mrs. Croker and I were laying
the issue out at eight o'clock the night before my physics
exam and I made Bahar stay with me, the show still went on.
When other editors were harrassing various members of the
student body for articles, the show still went on. Even when
we were raiding the Milestones office for bad pictures because
we needed to fill space, the show still went on. If we had to
choose a theme for Logos this year- keeping with Mr. Croker 's
Tropes and Schemes worksheet - it would definitely be, 'The
Show Must Go On,'" Hill remarked.

Milestones is the tortuous, painful, and underappreciated extracurricular activity
that manifests itself in the form of the yearbook. This year 13 editors led the
charge against Martha Grace, invisible staffers, incompetent photo developers,
Micheal's Photography, and deadlines. Bruised and battered, these 1 3 brave souls,
knowing that their crowning achievement would arrive after their departure for
college, selflessly donated blood, sweat, tears, sanity, sleep, comfort, security,)
free time, weekends, weekdays, nights, mornings, breaks. . .gave up their social
lives, families, friends, food, beds, homes, favorite television shows, dates, I
boyfriends, showers, all in the name of serving others. In all seriousness, theff
editors worked hard to produce the funniest copy, the best pictures, and the most
creative layouts that this school has ever seen. The editors have lived in Mr.|
Croker's room (considering the fact that he has all the decent computers, printers,!
scanners, etc.), beat the iMac, yelled expletives at anything technological, cut!
and pasted heads, searched for businesses to buy ads, and threatened to quit. But I

join Milestones next year! We promise you won't regret it.

The Harpeth Hall cheerleading team
gained a great deal of unexpected attention
this past basketball season in light of their
unique blend of school spirit and "rough"
cheerleading . Admittedly incapable of
performing most stunts, and viewing the
role of the cheerleader as somewhat
humorous, their irreverent style and
improvisational dress made them favorites
not only within the HH community but
with the Tennessee sports world at large.
They won the Spirit award at the state
basketball tournament for their leading of
a large portion of the student body in
chants, cheers, and jeers as HH took on
Chattanooga's GPS. All in all, it was a big
year for HH cheerleading. Hopefully the
junior cheerleaders will be back next year
with all new material.
YIG: Not Just Another Weird Acronym
Youth in Government
What other group of people would miss school and give
up a precious weekend to argue about foreign policy
and to pass mock Senate bills? Youth in Government,
led by fearless senior Jessica Crowell (who we hear is
planning a presidential bid in the 2024 election), attends
two conferences every year: Model United Nations in
the fall and Youth Legislature in the spring. In the fall,
students choose any world country and research it, then
write a bill that pertains to their country's culture or
government. For example, if a group picks Djibouti,
then they might pass a bill that would legally allow them M
to change the official pronunciation of their country's ■
name, or if a group picked to represent the country of m
Milestones, then they might pen a bill to overthrow m
Martha Grace as their ruthless dictator. You get the idea.
In the spring, the students converge on the State Capitol
Building to debate bills. Some students get the
opportunity to serve on mock Congressional
Committees or even to be members of the press. YIG I
gives students the opportunity to see what both domestic I
and foreign politics is like from an insider's view. Don't
be surprised to see the likes of Jessica Crowell on C-
Span in twenty years when the rest of us are teaching
Latin and sponsoring Milestones at Harpeth Hall.

For each of the wonderful plays performed at Harpeth Hall, a lot work
goes on behind the scenes. The group responsible for these feats is the
Playmakers. The Playmakers construct sets, sell tickets, put up posters,
and make everything run smoothly for the plays. Each Playmaker is
responsible for getting a certain number of hours for each performance.
At the end of the year, the Playmakers celebrate their hard work and
numerous achievements with a banquet, which is complete with a theme
costumes, and everyone's favorite: sock puppets, the true thespian acting
aid. Playmakers who go above and beyond the call of duty are given the
opportunity of joining the International Thespian Society. Without their

The 1999 Harpcth Hall volleyball team had a very
successful year. Led by Coach Karen Schwartz, a

won first place in the Page Invitational, which
resulted in their receiving a beautiful trophy. The
varsity team, led by these six seniors: Sloan Curtis,
Meg Fox, Sarah Allen, Amy Campbell, Emily Priest,
and Brooke Earthman helped lead the team to
overcome a variety of obstacles throughout the
season. Not only did they attain team goals, but
experienced personal successes as well. On the
road to state for the first time in several years, the
team defeated rival school, Brentwood Academy
in the regional tournament. The game displayed
the Bears' strong presence on the court. Although
they did not win the state title, they set new
standards for HH volleyball, while enjoying an
exceptional season of play. Way to go Bears!

Lucy and Spunky Monkey
The Harpeth Hall soccer team enjoyed yet another fabulous season
filled with fun and excitement. Long hailed as the Cinderella team from
middle Tennessee, critics argued for several years that this "Cinderella"
did not truly fit in at the "Ball". Led by seniors, Rachel Cherney,
Shannon Shillinglaw, Susan McGugin, Reed Harrison, Lucy Kay Wall,
Kathleen Hale, and Megan Campbell, the team finished their season out
with an amazing record of 19-2-2. This year, Tim Wallace stepped from
assistant to head coach and lead the bears to the best soccer season in
Harpeth Hall history. For the first time ever, Harpeth Hall made it to the
state championship finals, placing a close second (2-1 ) to nationally
ranked (8 lh ) Baylor School of Chattanooga. The season started as
teammates left the poolside and gave up sleep-late mornings to train,
mid July, in the Georgia heat. They went strong for three months,
ending their season on a chilly October night in Chattanooga. Harpeth
Hall soccer has become a formidable force in TSSAA athletics - few
will argue that Cinderella isn't queen!

The Green Mile
The Upper School Cross Country Team had
an awesome season this year! Coached by

strength and iron wills, while learning to keep
on running - no matter what. Mrs. Russ could
often be heard saying, "Pain is not an option".
This became the creed by which the runners
lived by for the first 3 months of the school
year. Both the varsity and junior varsity
teams had some incredible runners, including
several who are new to cross country at
Harpeth Hall. The girls demonstrated
amazing endurance, as they were able to pull
through every race no matter how tired or
sick they were. They experienced some
incredible accomplishments such as winning
the Tennessee State Classic. Led by seniors,
Alyssa Abkowitz, Sloan Ashley, Lindsey
Wallace, and Jacqueline Thompson, this
group of dedicated girls showed great team
spirit and effort as well as endurance and
hard work. Go Bears!

over BGA, Brentwood Academy, and mid-state power Waverly This years squad played
one of the schools most difficult schedules and at tournament time it definitely paid off..
Going into the region tourney as the #3 seed, the bears blew past MTCS and won in a

Megan Campbell, Meg Fox, Tricia McWilliams, and Emily Priest, an experienced squad
returns next year along with a talented youth movement that will make things just as excitin;
as ever. The 1999-2000 Freshmen team combined from six different teams from the previous
year to finish third in the regular season. Though their record may have fallen short of their
skill, guts and determination guided this team. Way to go Freshmen!

"Bearacudas all the way!" The team spirit on the Harpeth
Hall swim team is palpable. With every swimmer crowding
the poolside and cheering continuously tor one another, it
is not surprising that the Bearacudas were Division III Dual
Meet Champions. Led by seniors Janna Alfery, Sandy
McCain, Lindsay Beckner, Amy Campbell, and Emme
Simpkins, these swimming fiends went to the Regional Meet
full of confidence and ready to win. The combination of five
months of intense practices and the incredible coaching
skills of Polly Linden and Jack Hazen led the team to become
Region Champs for the third consecutive year. Coach Polly
Linden says of her team, "This is one of the most united
teams that I have had the privilege of coaching. The senior
leadership this year was exemplary. I am proud that more
girls made it to State this year than any other." Twenty-four
out of the twenty-nine swimmers made their state cut this
year. The strength of the swimmers and the addition of three
new divers on the team inspired Coaches Linden and Hazen
to reach for even bigger goals at state. Despite the freezing
cold water and the suffocatingly tight swimsuits, the
Bearacudas managed to grab fourth place at the State Meet.
The leadership and dedication shown by the swimmers this
year can only hope to be matched by that shown by next
year s Bearacudas.

The Harpeth Hall lacrosse team made quite a name for itself in
its second season as a club team. Under the direction of 7-9
months pregnant coach, Legare Vest, the girls trained for several
months prior to the end of the school year. Their accomplishments
include the defeat of archnemesis Father Ryan twice, Brentwood
High once, and everyone else. The girls travelled to Atlanta for
a playday to test out their skills against those of other teams in
bigger cities, and found that they measured up quite nicley, coming
out 1 and 1 . The first game, they insist, was lost to the Krystal
they ate on the way down and not to the other team. The team,
which was snubbed from the athletic banquet due to its club
status, wrapped up the year with a pool party—proving that the
lax team always goes out in style.

The track team's prowess was both
intimidating and reknown this season, as
the runners crushed competitor after
competitor on their road to the state title.
Practices were endured, strength was
built, races were completed, and records
were broken. The 2K track team, through
hard work and determination, won the
TSSAA State Championship, and brought
the state title back to Harpeth Hall in the
final sport competed in by the school this
year. The entire school shared in the joy
of the athletes at this great
acomplishment. It should also be noted
that this is the first year in HH history in
which every sport's team has competed
in state competition.

The middle school volleyball team had - once again - a successful
season. Led by nine 8 th graders, this year's team was closeknit and
had a good time while working hard. As one team member said, "A
fun point was throwing balls at Hadley!". Although the team had
memorable victories, they will never forget their best game — though
it was a loss. Reminiscing about this game, one volleyball player said,
"One highlight of our season was when we played Freedom Middle
and played awesomely but lost. It was our best game ever (played
on Tuesday) and after that we would say before each game, 'Let's
have a Tuesday'". The seventh graders were the base of the team,
inspiring the eighth graders to play their hardest. In short, school
spirit radiated from the entire middle school volleyball team, no
matter what role each individual played in its success.

Park. In achieving this, they received the lowest score ever recorded
in this meet, compiling a 20 ( 1 5 is the lowest possible score). Ensworth
came in second with a 66. Ellen Davis, Morgan Stengel, Jennifer Bum,
Mary Katherine Bartholomew, Laura Nichols, and Margaret Tipton
filled in the top places, while nearly every girl on the Harpeth Hall team
ran their best race of the year. When asked to comment on the girls'
winning streak, their coach Dr. Jack Henderson said, "Their season
was perfect, and although there were so many strong winners in the
spotlight, the team as a whole did amazingly."

Middle School Soccer
The Middle School Soccer Team had a very
successful season this year. For the first time ever,
there were enough sixth, seventh, and eighth graders
interested in playing that two teams were formed. The
A Team was led by coaches Coach Jeffords and
Coach Primm. They finished the season with a record
of 6-1-2 and a third place finish in the HVAC
tournament. The coaches remarked, 'The girls played
hard all season with a lot of heart, determination, and
intensity" Coach Baker and Coach Pledger led the
B Team. They finished the season with a 2-2 record.
The team had a combination of new and old players
and did a wonderful job of teamwork to continually
improve their skills.

Golf, the newest athletic team in the Middle
School, had a surprisingly successful first
season. The team consisted of these three
dedicated members: Emmie Powell, Dru Nelson,
and Candace Clippard. The team's small size did
not, however, hinder their achievement on the
green. Coached by Spanish teacher Marees
Choppin, the golf team practiced once a week
and participated in six turbulent matches
throughout September. They emerged victorious
in an astounding 5 out of those 6 matches. This
year is likely the first of many triumphant
seasons to come for the Middle School HVAC

Coached by 8th grade math
teacher Molly Simmons, the

a group of seven spirited girls
that ceaselessly encourage their
classmates on the court. The 7 th

can always count on the
cheerleaders to give their
enthusiastic support during the
middle of a tough game. Since
they are the pep club of the
Middle School, these girls also
raise school spirit throughout
the entire school by getting other
classmates to come and cheer for
their sports teams.

With a huge win over rival Ensworth that
came down to the last inning, the Middle
School softball team completed their goal
of winning at least one game. This year's
team was coached by two brand-
spankin' new coaches. First, head coach
Jennifer Pledger brought innovative ideas
to the softball field. Harpeth Hall's very
own Lynn Crabtree returned to show
young players what she had learned
playing under the stellar Polly Linden,
Upper School softball coach. Even
though their record was less than perfect,
the girls learned a valuable lesson: it's not
how many games you win (in this case
one) but how you played the games.

On 10 May 2000, Coach Hila Graham
gave birth to baby Wills. Due to this happy
event, Coach Graham unfortunately had
to leave the team mid-season. Despite
losing this valuable coach, the Middle
School Tennis team recovered with full
force winning the H VAC title. Led by new
coach Karen Schwartz, they continued to
dominate the league. The girls had a player
in every finals match of the HVAC
Tournament. Even though they will lose
four players to the Upper School next
year, the remaining eight players will
definitely go on to repeat their victory.

From August 15-16, thirty-six of Harpctli Hall's
finest went to Camp Hillmont in White Bluff, TN for
the annual Leadership Retreat. The girls who went
included club and class presidents, vice presidents,
and members of the student council. Led by Ms.
Teaff and the new upper school director, Mrs.
Mulgrew, the girls made posters for the teacher's
doors, set goals for the upcoming year, and planned
fun, new activities for the student body. The two
days were spent discussing aspirations for the new
year, one of which was choosing a theme for the
school year. Suggested by Ms. Teaff, the theme of
"School Pride" was accepted for the '99-'00 school
year! Hannah Reed said, "The retreat was so much
fun and gave me lots of confidence about how
incredible the upcoming school year would be."
"I think I'm out of holes."

Lifting up the mind and spirit... and the roof.
This year, over forty students from I larpetli Hall and MBA invested countless
hours in helping the Jackson family build their new home on Delk Ave. for
this year's Habitat for Humanity. With smiling faces and an incredible
eagerness to participate, faculty and students gathered together to create
this house over a span of six weekends. The project started from a mere
cement foundation. Equipped with nail guns, paint brushes, and hammers
the house was soon completed. The future owner, Krystal Jackson was on
site each day, helping in the completion of her new home. Key Club president,
Susan McGugin, and the planning committee succeeded in raising over
40,000 dollars for the project. The building of the habitat house gave students
an opportunity to come together and accomplish the task at hand. Those
who did not actively participate in the building of the house, helped get
donations from the surrounding community, or they donated money for the
penny wars which the Senior class won! All that were involved were left w ith
an irreplaceable experience and remarkable friendships.

The freshman retreat this year was a huge success in which the new freshmen
bonded together and became closer. This year the retreat was held at a new
location called Camp Discovery. Besides the bus ride filled with gossip and
games, the highlight of the trip was the hilarious skits performed that night. Activities
included trust walks, swimming, bonding games, and lots of time in advisor groups.
It was a good experience that allowed the new freshmen to meet their classmates
before school started. No matter what part of the trip the class of 2003
remembers, the Froshies will always remember their great bonding time during
their luxurious getaway. The image of Dr. Hopple hula-hooping is one that they
will treasure always.

The Senior class this year was all but ecstatic over the annual pilgrimage to
White Bluff, Tennessee for the Senior Retreat. The retreat has become a
favorite end-ofthe-summer/ back-to-school tradition signifying the first major
rite of passage for the upcoming 12" 1 graders. This year the girls dined like
kings, and enjoyed a great night's sleep on the luxurious fluffy beds provided
by the hospitable staff at Hillmont. The highlight of the trip came close to
midnight when a giant game of "Capture the Flag" broke out. All and all, it
was a productive weekend where friends had a chance to catch up on
summer memories, and summer reading. Ms.Garrison, Mrs.Maxwell, and
Mrs. Mul-GREW had plenty to say. Hot topics included the following:
college, the conversion from Dud's Days to "Casual" Days, college, the
new schedule, college, the degree of provocativity allowable on "Casual"
Days, and um. . .college! Way to go, Bob!

thought of wearing Mrs. Barringer's sweater was
enough of a threat that "98%" of the seniors were
dressed appropriately- no skin- in their white
dresses. At the assembly the students recognized
the senior class as they took the leadership pledge.
Lucy Kay Wall, Rachel Cherney, and Amy Campbell
all gave inspiring speeches. The day did not end
there; the seniors were presented with their
Hawaiian class hats and wore Hawaiian clothes to
show their senior pride. The leis weren't exactly
what we would call impressive, but they sufficed
to provide a taste of paradise to the ceremony.

Student Directed One Acts
The 2000 year was highlighted by not one
but two student art shows. The first was the
Student Art Show, which showed work
from student in photography as well as art.
Students from all grades had the opportunity
to display the pieces that they had worked
on during the year. There were paintings,
sculptures, and photographs, all
demonstrating the amazing amount of talent
of the Upper School students. The second
art show displayed work from the AP Art
class. Each girl had her own wall where
she showed off what she had done
thoughout the year. The AP exhibit was one
of the best ever, and the girls work will be
sorely missed next year.

beforehand. Winter Formal proved to live up to its high

(although a few ventured into the realm of color), and the guys
looked almost presentable in their khakis and ties. The band,

the girls had Dr. Echerd be the contestant to guess
what it was. The four choices were "It's a Barbie
World," "Battle of the Boy bands," "Motown,"
and "Millennium." Luckily for the seniors, the
theme was neither of those. Although, the seniors
wouldn't have minded "Battle of the Boy Bands."
The surprise theme was "There s No Place like

seniors followed the yello brick road back to the
senior house to find tables full of food. The theme
and skit were a hit.

Harpeth Hall is full of it (meaning tradition), and one tradition that many alumnae remember;
fondly is Winterim. For the past 27 years, students have spent the first three weeks of the j
second semester learning outside the traditional classroom and gaining valuable "insight 1 " on
careers. Freshmen and sophomores remain on campus and take courses such as Stained Glass,
Song Writing with Dr. Henderson and Joe "Hamlet" Croker, the History of Math, and Shelby
Woo and You, just to name a few. Those lucky enough to be juniors and seniors have the t
"privilege" of leaving campus for those three glorious weeks. These girls are pretty much allowed
to choose any area they want to intern in, with, of course, the permission of their faculty sponsors.
Some girls intern in Washington, D.C., some intern at hospitals, while others do independent
studies. There are also academic travel trips to Greece, Egypt, and France. Sincerely remembering
her final off campus Winterim, one senior remarked "Working with Mr. Croker was an absolutely
invaluable experience. Only Winterim could have given me the chance to spend three weeks
working with a teacher I greatly admire."

Almost Alumnae/Mother-Daughter Luncheon
This year, to conserve money and time, the Almost Alumnae
Luncheon merged with the Mother-Daughter Luncheon to form
one grand get-together. At this years festivites, Olympic Gold
Medalist, Tracey Caulkins, was the distiguished alumna who had
the privilege of speaking to the superb Class of 2000. While I
everyone dined on the plentiful feast that was provided, mothers
and daughters engaged in deep discussions about the school,
college, and graduation. The seniors enjoyed sharing the afternoon
with their mothers, and it was a time that will not soon be forgotten.
When the Luncheon rolled to a close, seniors received their
Winterim portfolios, which spanned the past four years. Although
the school has already given the seniors so much, it gave them
even more; each senior received a copy of the history of Harpeth
Hall, autographed by Mrs. Teaff, a silver picture frame with the
date of graduation engraved on it, and the most valuable of all, a
picture holder held together with a paper clip. The seniors will use
these priceless gifts in their search for truth next year in college.

Students applauded as the beloved Katie Hill

has found a new calling - handing out daisies.
Only a small percentage of the awards were
given out at this assembly, the rest will be given

The Athletic Banquet this year was reborn
in format with the hopes of making it
"flow" more smoothly than it had in past
years. Traditionally, coaches infamous for
long-windedness, and senior speeches
punctuated by sobs created a somewhat
tedious ceramony. This year however, the
audience was treated to a lovely dinner and
kept practically on the edges of their seats
as slide shows, awards and short speeches
helped create the best awards banquet ever.
Each athlete was presented with a special
gift determined by the number of years of
their participation in their respective sport.
This night will remain in the memory of

The Green and Gray Oscars
US Awards Day
On a brisk Friday morning the annual Awards Day or as we like to
call it: Harpeth Halls version of the Oscars was held. The nominees
strolled in at 1 0: 1 5 to gather with blankets, water bottles, and cameras
in hand on the front lawn of Souby. Everyone was dressed in the
most current plaid fashions provided generously by Parker Uniforms.
Mrs. Mulgrew and Ms. Teaff were the emcees for the day and gave
colorful commentary as each award was presented. As the event s
entertainment, each intramural club performed a song or medley
with, of course, dance moves; this year s winner was Ariston who
performed a song about Saffron to get on the good side of judge Joe
Croker. During the intermission - yes, we need one since there are
sooo many awards - the student council members gave out popsicles
on the senior patio. The day ended with a rousing rendition of the
Alma Mater, as seniors grew sad that it was the last day they would
ever wear the green and gray.

Eighth Grade Trip
For the annual eighth grade trip, the Class of
2005 went on a fun-filled trip to Chicago.
Since the "vacation" lasted only three days,
the eighth graders had to cram all the sights
that Chicago has to offer in a limited amount
of time. The girls all got to fly (not drive on a
tight, cramped bus) to the Windy City. While
they were there, they went to the Shedd
Aquarium's Dolphin Show, the Chicago Zoo,
and stayed at the Knickerbocker. They also
saw Ancient Egyptian and Greek Artifacts,
dined at Ed Debevichs and Chicago Pizza
Kitchen, and shopped on Madison Avenue.
Sixty-four girls, eight teachers, and two buses
took over the city of Chicago. The girls will
remember such a wonderful trip for a long time.

Native American Day
Colonial Day is an annual favorite among the Middle School. The
Seventh Graders get to dress up in colonial clothes and learn about
colonial things. The girls make booths and sell colonial goods, such
as peppermint sticks in oranges, homemade candles, and homemade
bread. The students also get to show aspect of daily life during
Colonial times. They show family life, work, games, entertainment,
crime, and punishment. Said one girl of the event, "It's really neat
to be able to learn about colonial life. Life during the colonial times
was neat. I would not like to live during the colonial times because
they didn't have cd players, and I can't live without my Mandy
Moore cd." All the girls echoed her sentiments.

To Grandmother's Tea We Go
In November, the Middle School hosted one of its
long-standing traditions, Grandmother's Tea. For
such a special occasion, students had to dig up
spotless white shirts, perfectly pleated plaid skirts,
and clean saddle oxfords. The girls waited in the
Gallery as their beloved Grandmothers or Special
Friends arrived. The ladies were escorted down
the stairs and into the auditorium for an afternoon
of performances. Once everyone was seated, they
were entertained by the fifth and sixth grade chorus
and the seventh and eighth grade chorus. They all
then returned to the Gallery for the one thing that
everybody wanted: refreshments. The room was
filled with punch, cookies, finger foods, and
conversation. All were reluctant to leave the Gallery
(well, until the food ran out) so they could keep the
loving atmosphere a part of them for a long time.
Said one Middle Schooler of the event, "It was so
great to be able to spend time with my grandmother
while being able to eat lots of good food. I'm really
glad she came."

The Middle School Father-Daughter Dance
gives girls the opportunity to spend some

get dressed up in party dresses and
accompany their fathers (dressed in suits and
ties) down to the cafeteria to enjoy a night of
magic. This year, the cafeteria was decorated
with such breathtaking deocrations that the
participants could hardly contain themselves.
It was quite a shin-dig and a great time was

Middle School Awards Day is a time when the Middle
School students at Harpeth Hall receive various
honors for their dedication and hard work over the
years preceeding high school. Taking place in the
auditorium, academic awards for placement in
national language exams, as well as a host of other
prestigious honors are awarded to the girls at this time.
It is an eagerly anticipated day as there is a symbolic
merging with the upper school awards day ceremony
for the presentation of the Milestones dedication (the
yearbook once again uniting people everywhere).
Awards day in the Middle School provides a special
time for students to be recognized and to prepare for
their transition into the Upper School.

president elect Emily Fisher, Anna

Step Singing is a long held Harpeth Hall tradtion in

tradition was started at Ward-Belmont and is a
favorite even today. All the upperclassmen wear
beautiful white dresses, and the seniors invite a
special speaker. This year, Cezanne Gray, a HH
alum and very successful business woman, delivered
the speech. It was a lovely and memorable last

Attack of the White Dresses
Girls in white dresses with red long-stemmed
roses... May 29 turned out to be a memorable
way for the Class of 2000 to say adios to their
beloved school. Before the event, the seniors
gathered in the Leigh Horton Garden for a class
picture. They then lined up and anxiously
waited for "Pomp and Circumstance" to begin
playing so they could process in. It dared not
to rain that evening - like it had the previous
year - for fear that the members of the Class of
2000 would have words with the rain clouds.
The front lawn was filled with family, friends,
and faculty members, all hoping for the chance
to see those 78 brave souls who had survived
their years at the Hall get their diplomas. Going
against tradition, the senior gift, a time capsule,
was given to Ms. Teaff at graduation instead
of step singing by class president Rachel
Cherney. Katie Hill, Lady of the Hall and
senior speaker, gave such a beautiful speech
to sum up the past four years. Overall, it was a
wonderful ending to high school.

Count happiness more necessary to the mind than truth is,
Yet know that happiness does not exist without truth.
Walk with a cold pride—utterly ahead
Wild attentive eyes, head flicked by the rain...
Eyelashes that shine, with tears and with thunders.
Love people. Love entertains its own discrimination.
Have (us) in mind; (we) shall be watching
You can return to (us). Now go. "
