By SHAWN LINDSEY
Special to the Herald-Zeitung
Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face...You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” Beginning high school is a new chapter in every person’s book of life. Although this new beginning is one of anticipation and excitement for most, the first few steps taken onto this path can be a little scary. To help ease some of the anxiety, the New Braunfels High School Student Coun-c I held its second annual Fish Camp o I August IO. The camp was designed to help make the freshmen more comfortable with their new environment, as well as to familiarize them with the strong traditions of NBHS while encouraging the importance of goal setting and student involvement. Senior Alison Damarodas organized the event, and student leaders Leslie Opperman, Anna Lisa Vargas, Shawn Lindsey and Shannon Millet helped to make Fish Camp a great success.

Mater. Afterwards, everybody ate submarine sandwiches provided by Student Council. The small groups then went on a tour of the school highlighted with informational yet comical skits put on by the student volunteers. The students returned to the gym for some friendly class competitions and a mock pep-rally. After the pep-rally, the students got into teams and competed in the Fish Camp Olympic Games. The Second Annual Fish Camp was successfully executed and at 7 p.m. the freshmen returned to the gym to take part in Freshmen Orientation. During orientation, the freshmen were introduced to the award-winning Drum-Line, the NBHS band, the Monoceras, cheerleaders, ROTC, twirlers, and last-but certainly not least-the administration.

SOMETHING NEW IS COOKING IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD
Each freshman attending Fish Camp left feeling stronger, more courageous, and much more confident about embarking on a new journey. A journey that will take them four years to complete. The class of 1999 is about to begin a new chapter in their lives. Their courage, strength, and confidence will help make the first few pages a little less scary.
The New Braunfels Student Council would like to thank all the seniors and underclassmen for their time and help. We would also like to extend our gratitude to Blimpies for providing the sub sandwiches at a greatly reduced cost.
