Graduation Day

A memo from Ralph to we graduates about how to march, where to sit, how to hold our tassels, return caps and gowns and get report cards. The old mimeograph version has faded and is not readable. Envision the purple type and the smell of mimeograph ink.

Click the marching NHS graduates. (No...that's not our class)

It was a warm Thursday evening in early June. We are were all there. The ritualistic
rite, ceremony, and celebration where we wore robes and square hats to receive the document that validated 13 years of learned experience.

The traditional celebration for we newly minted graduates. If you were there, here  is a reminder of the schedule of events and the Student Committee who put it all together. If you didn’t go, here is what you missed.

This was one of the Graduation pictures that appeared in the Needham Times.  Yeah, that's me not listening to Sam Cohn giving his Valedictorial Address.  I believe I was checking to see if one of my fellow classmates did, in fact, sneak a beer under his gown and had devised a method of drinking the beer via some long straw-like device.

Bob Kjellman and Mark Thompson...proud graduating seniors!
