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... 

The posse in action. 

You complete me 


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 
Harpeth Hall has ever seen. 

The Universe is in 
safe hands. 

I can't believe it's 
not Tim Wallace! 

Shake your bon-bon! If it hadn't been for you nosy kids.,

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."

ond ■ 

; 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.

favorite column.

Mrs. Malone and Mrs. Simmons 

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. 

"Leaping lizards Batman! What's the problem?" 

Mrs. Mulgrew, do you need a name tag to remember your own name?

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.

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 
"It Wasn't Me" Allen, Molly "What Brownie?" 
Arvin, Amy "Liar, Liar" Campbell, and Molly

Student Faculty 

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

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,

his year than ever. In the search for more knowledge, the club

nore about our aquatic friends - the fish. The science club, in an 
earnest attempt to keep our school clean, also set up recycling 
?ins. They were removed soon after by the administration, due to 
heir unsightly appearance. The club continues to look for ways 1 
:o help preserve our earth, and improve its condition for the 
generations to come. Their ongoing mission is to raise awareness 
ibout the world around us, even if it means starting with our own 
school first. In order to gain inspiration for their global crusade,

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.

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.

language. The Food Fest was delicious and the 
various foreign film viewing throughout the year 
allowed the members to enjoy the talent and 
captivating plots for which the French cinema is 
renown. The productive meetings were always 
packed, thanks in part to ever-present tasty 
chocolate croissants. Among exciting speakers this 
year was the owner of Nashville's own Provence 
bakery. The 1999-2000 French club has had, "une

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. 

Below: Hallmarks Editor, Sarah Allen reads a piece that she 
worked extremely hard on, "Roses are red..."

Logos II 

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

other editors under the tutelage of Mrs. Croker and Mrs.

Fabienne Diskin. Alyssa Abkowitz, Molly Kaplan, Sarah

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.

1999-2000 Milestones 

"Hey good-lookin' ! Wanna go for a ride?" J 

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 
all in all, the Stoners have become a close groups of friends. So come on out andl 
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.

The Playmakers

Below: Apparently, only Liz sees the camera. 

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 
hard work, students would not been able to enjoy such works as Grease, 
Much Ado about Nothing, and The Last Night of Ballyhoo.

Varsity Volleyball 

The 1999 Harpcth Hall volleyball team had a very 
successful year. Led by Coach Karen Schwartz, a 
Middle School English teacher, the junior varsity 
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!

A Cinderella Story 

Kiss me you fool. 

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! 

Megan's moves confuse the Ryan goalie. 


The Green Mile 

The Upper School Cross Country Team had 
an awesome season this year! Coached by 
Mrs. Susan Russ, these girls developed 
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!

Upper School Basketball 

It was a great year.. .Bear basketball was on the rise. The 1999-2000 Varsity basketball 
team finished the season with a record of 16-14 and a first ever trip to the TSSAA State 
Final Four Tournament in Murfreesoboro. Highlights of the season included big home wins 
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 
thrilling overtime game over BGA 46-41 before falling to Ryan in the finals 36-33 before a 
packed house at MBA... after a substate victory in memphis over ECS, the Bears lost in the 
State semifinals 38-28 to the eventual champions GPA. Although we will miss the seniors 
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.

the Harpeth Valley Athletic Conference championships at Percy Warner 
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

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

the entire school by getting other 
classmates to come and cheer for 
their sports teams.

MS Softball 

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. 

"I'd be able to catch the ball if the stupid 
sun weren't shining directly onto my face."

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.

are you on? 

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.

Freshman Retreat 

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!

Grease was an amazing sold out production 
performed jointly by llarpeth Hall and

and musicians took part in the second annual 
joint production. Directed by Janette Klocko, 
produced by Dr. Cal Fuller, choreographed by 
Stephanie Hamilton, and musically directed by 
Lynn Rothrock, Grease was a show to remember.

Senior Recognition Day 

Senior Recognition Day began with an early 
breakfast of bagels, water, oj and M&Ms. The 
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. 
This last class of the millennium is a unique group 
of girls that will not soon be forgotten. 

And the crowd goes wild!

Fifteen Minutes of Fame 

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.

The last dance concert of the century proved to be one of I

Middle School performed, the first time live music | 
accompanied the dances, the first time guest choreographers I 
performed, and the first time a real live guy actually | 
performed in the dance instead of making fun of the concert I 
from the audience. The dance numbers were breathtaking, I 
including a awe-inspiring number entitled "I Bought Me a I 
Cat." The show's finale was the incredibly upbeat "Hand I 
Jive," in which all the clubs performed. Seniors Kelley I 
Anne Andrews, Rachel Bressman, Christie Caldwell, 
Sasha Chudacoff, Cathy Crafton, Nika Ferdowsi, Amanda * 
Norman, Spring Pami, and Elizabeth Townsend, all led 
their respective dance clubs to a grand finale. They will

Winter Formal, held the day after the final winter exam, was a 
both highly-anticipated and memorable event. Despite the 
incessant discussions of dresses and dates for weeks 
beforehand. Winter Formal proved to live up to its high 
expectations this year. About 450 people showed up to the 
dance, which had been organized and lovingly decorated by 
the Student Council along with the help of the Parents' 
Association. The girls were dressed in their black dresses 
(although a few ventured into the realm of color), and the guys 
looked almost presentable in their khakis and ties. The band, 
Traffic Jam, provided great music for those who stayed to 
"get down." Others enjoyed talking to their friends during the 
hour long wait to get their pictures taken. All in all, Winter 
Formal 1 999 was the perfect beginning to the much-needed 
winter break. 

The Motown girls break it down. 

In an effort to follow the precedent set by the 
Class of 2000, the juniors did a game show 
parody to announce the 2000 prom theme. 
Playing off of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire," 
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 
Prom," a.k.a. the Wizard of Oz. Excited, the 
seniors followed the yello brick road back to the 
senior house to find tables full of food. The theme 
and skit were a hit.

Prom Theme?"

Prom Set-Up 

As part of Harpeth Hal Is numerous 
traditions, the juniors spent the three 
weeks before prom setting up for the 
magical night. The girls worked hard 
to transform the Gallery and Gym 
into parts from the movie. Putting in 
hours of hard work is what makes the 
experience even better. Since 
everyone in the junior class had to 
work together to get the job done, 
the prom set-up was one amazing 
bonding adventure. Despite some 
mishaps - Leah - the Gallery became 
Kansas and the Gym became Oz. It 
was magnificent.

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."

This year, to conserve money and time, the Almost Alumnae

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.

The Athletic Banquet this year was reborn

years. Traditionally, coaches infamous for

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. 
As chaperone Martha Grace said "1 can't 
believe they made me go to Chicago with a 
bunch of annoying eighth graders. Hey, it was

Colonial 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.

Middle school actresses once again 
charmed us with their acting and 
singing abilities in How To Eat Like 
a Child. With direction by Lynne 
Rothrock and choreography by 
Stephanie Hamiliton, these 7th and 
8th graders wooed audiences with 
a plethora of tricks for acting like 
a child. Audiences learned how to 
make prank phone calls, stay home 
from school, go (or NOT) to bed, 
and Eat Like a Child. 

Mrs. Rothrock gives helpful pointers and advice.

To Grandmother's Tea We Go 

Grandmother's Tea 

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 
much needed time with their fathers. The girls 
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 
had by all!

The G-Day 

George Washington Day 

"Left, left. Left, right, left." Every February, 
these words can be heard resounding through 
the walls of Morrison Gym. No, it has not 
been temporarily transformed into the HH 
Boot Camp, but rather, it has been taken back 
in time to the days of General George 
Washington. A Ward-Belmont tradition, 
George Washington Day has become an 
integral part of the 7 th grade experience. Each 
year, under the guidance of Merrie Clark, 
Leslie Matthews, Susan Russ, and the rest of 
the 7 th grade teachers, these girls perfect the 
graceful moves of minuets, the precision of 
soldiers, and the timed stepping of sailors. The 
seventh grade class selected Nancy Sisk and 
Abigail Lipshie as George and Martha 
Washington. Ms. Marie Burr received the 
honored dedication.

Coaches Grace, Dr. Jack, Jones,

together with Middle School 
students to celebrate another 
wonderful year of HH Middle 
School athletics. Awards were 
presented, girls were honored, 
speeches were made, cookies 
and punch were eaten. 
Elizabeth Conrad, and Melissa 
McCord were elected by the 
coaches to speak on behalf of 
the students, and they did a 
wonderful job. It was a great 
year for sports and all the girls 
enjoyed spending an evening 
together reliving memories and 
creating new ones.

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.

At 9:00 Am on Memorial Day, 2000, 
Ms. Ross began playing a processional 
on the piano and the packed 
auditorium stood in respect as the 
graduating class walked slowly 
(quickly) to the stage. Proud parents, 
grandparents, families, friends, and 
faculty beamed as the girls took their 
places on stage. After songs by the 5th 
and 6th grade chorus, an invocation by 
president elect Emily Fisher, Anna 
Smith, elected 8th grade speaker, 
silenced the audience with her words. 
As the ceremony ended, and the girls 
exited the auditorium, "We are the 
freshmen, mighty mighty freshmen..." 
echoed through the Gallery.

Step Singing is a long held Harpeth Hall tradtion in 
which juniors and seniors gather on Souby lawn in 
the day preceeding graduation to sing songs. The 
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 
evening together for all the seniors. 


Katie Wray Award 

Molly Katharine Arvin 

The Katie Wray Award, Harpeth Halls highest academic honor, is presented each year to the graduating senior who has achieved th 
highest cumulative grade point average. This year s recipient, Molly Katharine Arvin, has not only established herself as a scholar but a

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.

I would like to say thank you to all my dedicated editors, especially the one who stayed late, 
woke up early, and was just there for me all year without complaints. You know who you are 
Bahar and I thank you. I want to just say you guys amaze me, each of you. This yearbook 
will be the funniest and best that this school has ever seen. It is all bee 
that each of you put into this thing. Through quitting, yelling, fighting, snmmy, lauyniny, emu 
bad moods, we spent each day together sometimes happily, sometimes hatefully, but all for 
fun. I could go through and thank each of you, but I don't feel like I could be creative with each 
one. All of you, though are special to me. Thank you all. To Martha, good luck that is all I 
have to say. We were your first group, and though we fought back, you kept us on track. I 
want to thank you for your patience, and I hope that you learned a lot. Good luck next year. 
To all of you, I love you and will miss you all. Thanks for a great ride!!!

Dear Meg, 

For the joy, hope, compassion and commitment you share with us daily—thank 
ou. A message for you at this crossroad, with apologies to Yevtushenko: 

" Don't worry if you have no answer ready to the lasting question. 
Hold out, meditate, listen... 

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. " 

With Much Love, Dad, Brian, Erin, Mom and Mac

I wanted a perfect ending- 
Now I've learned the hard way, 
that some poems don't rhyme, and 

some stories don't have a clear

about not knowing, having to 
change, taking the moment and 
making the best of it without 
knowing what's going to happen 
next. " Delicious Ambiguity"

This bridge will only take you halfway there 
To those mysterious lands you long to see: 
Through gypsy camps and swirling Arab fairs 
And moonlight woods where the unicorns run free. 
So come and walk awhile with me and share 
The twisting trails and wondrous worlds I've known. 
But this bridge will only take you halfway there - 
The last few steps you'll have to take alone. 

We love you, and we're so proud!

May your guiding fight be strong 

Build a stairway to heaven with a prirtce or a vagabond 

And may you never love in vain and in our hearts you will remain
