LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 11.16 9 louisvillemsd.org Illustration by Kendall Regan giant concrete pillars that held up our boxy, gray educational fortress. (Girls were his favorite targets. That sounds super creepy. And maybe that's not fair. But maybe it is. The dude was creepy.) The loud smack that I swear reached an exploding-firecracker decibel scared the bejesus out of us children. Rich — who hid his eyes behind tinted sunglasses — would cackle and proudly march away, all confident, like, "My job here is done." Anne Marshall Senior writer We had the hot male PE teacher and the hot female English teacher. We also had the mean girls — the really mean girls who thought they ran the school. They had a name for their group and everything. Also, there were quite a few extreme athletes. Two of them went on to play professional baseball, one was a professional golfer and one was a kicker for the Chicago Bears for a short time. Megan Vogt Circulation and office manager The Punk Rock Marauder had a mohawk that he solidified with egg whites, and he left cut-out illustrations of monsters in my locker. The Joyful Mormon had too much fun at the disco. The Alcoholic Lesbian only had three drinks in her whole life but loved a good meeting. The High-Strung Artist slammed her head on the desk and ran out of the room when overwhelmed — so Ally Sheedy in The Breakfast Club. The Spikey-Haired Lisper made the statement "My mom stole my mousse" so hilarious. Suki Anderson Art director My high school (Presentation Academy) was actually the complete opposite of a high school movie. We had no cliques, no real issues with "mean girls," no stoners. I honestly did not understand where these stereotypes in movies came from. I thought it was a complete fabrication until I got to college and heard other people's stories.
