Seeing things from a different angle means a different perspective. The galleries of the world are filled with proof of man’s variety of perspective — from Rembrandt to Picasso, from impressionist Monet to cubist Klee — all see the world, man, God differently — all show us a different view of the same thing. With this infinite variety comes a broadening of vision, a far-flung horizon that allows us to see different facets of ourselves, the magnificence of creation, and the infinite Wisdom of the Creator. 2 Because each of us sees the same thing differently, one person sees only cracks in the sidewalk while another sees in them the traceries of brain cells under a microscope. Many people see an empty piece of property where some can foresee a proving ground, a completed athletic field. A dead leaf in snow to one person becomes to another an art form of light and shadow, lines and lacey patterns. The melody pounding in the mind of one man becomes Beethoven’s 9th Symphony while another man’s insistent song becomes Rhapsody in Blue or Sweet Caroline. Without such variety, such difference of perspective, man would indeed be narrow in mind and spirit. Life seen through a narrow door is a focus on limitation; seen from a mountaintop life becomes a mind-filling, never-ending discovery. The motorist passing by, hurried and indifferent, sees Andrean as a blur, a landmark on the way to work. To the students and faculty Andrean is a reality point around which much of their day and thought and concerns revolve. To the maintenance man, Andrean is a 22-mile long hallway. To the cooks it is 600 hamburgers and 100 pounds of French fries. To some it is an icebox where knowledge is stored like TV dinners in a freezer. Some see it as a complexity of words and math problems, rules and games, social life and relationships. To some Andrean is the last in a long line of security blankets before they are on their own in the cold, cruel, competitive world. 6 Like the prism which reveals the whole spectrum of color that makes up the light, Andrean is a gathering of a variety of perspectives, a revelation of the many facets of life and the world, Nature and Man and God. Here we learn to appreciate the variety of thought and talent. From being with each other we can know more about man and respect each person’s integrity, each one’s perspective. We are many colors in a kaleidoscope of changing patterns, each distinct in the prism of God’s mind yet blending in the one family of man, people of God, community of faith. 9 10 This community brings together the lines of our many perspectives — the joys, concerns, problems, decisions, loves, and life we all share. As a Catholic school, this Community of Faith called Andrean High School is meant to find its center, its stillpoint in Christ and the living of His Life. He is the stillpoint of our turning world. In Him all the lines of our difference converge and become one. Like the many grains of wheat that combine to make one bread, we are the many reflections of His Life, His Goodness, His Love. " In Him we live, move, and have our being.” 1 1 12 Three out of the four principals’ offices were occupied by new faces this year. Father Schwenzer remained at the helm to " break in” Sister Anne Renee as Associate Principal, and Father Benwitz and Sister Christopher as Assistant Principals. Sometimes only an administrator can appreciate the amount of work that is involved in keeping a 1200-people operation running smoothly and accomplishing the goals that were determined at the outset. Andrean sets high academic standards and it devolves upon the four-at-the- top to see to it that they are in accord with where the students are and where they are going. Public relations, discipline, and minor but important details pass in and out of the Main Office — but never to the point of ignoring the people of Andrean, the all-names (not numbers) students, faculty, and staff. CENTER LEFT : If Sr. Anne Renee isn’t running around school taking care of business, she can be found in her office working in deep concentration. CENTER RIGHT : Fr. Schwenzer finds it easier to compose letters and memos at the typewriter. Rev. Ronald G. Schwenzer, C.S.B. Principal S. Anne Renee, SS.C.M. Associate Principal Academics LEFT : Fr. Eckert keeps a sharp eye out for those who covet the head of the line only to send them to the end of it. CENTER LEFT : All ears perk up while Fr. Benwitz gives the announcements for the day. CENTER RIGHT : Exam day proves to be pretty hectic, but with the help of Fr. Benwitz and Sr. Christopher the right exams meet the right proctors. L ' v. Donald E. Benwitz, C.

Maybe it’s not always quiet enough to hear a pin drop, but the atmosphere in Andrean’s library lends itself very easily to study and homework assignments, not to mention reserach for fun or requirement. It is comforting to know that if no place else, the library has a place for everything and everything in its place, neatly catalogued and standing ready to be checked out — Sister Emma sees to that. Meanwhile, Mr. Barancyk, Andrean’s Dean of Students, sees to attendance and medical records, breaches of discipline and the individual needs of students. It’s the personal touch that counts and means so much to everyone. TOP: Sister Gilmary’s English III class finds the library the best place to start amassing information for their ominous term papers. CENTER LEFT : The library is the only place for serious study before and after school for John Rainford and Paul Sylve. CENTER RIGHT : As part of his daily routine Mr. Barancyk writes out Jim Klamo’s " I-know-you-missed-me-but-I’m-back” slip. 1 6 — Academics Like the navigation officer on a ship, the Guidance Department at Andrean charts the student’s course through four years of high school. Some students require very little assistance in determining their strengths and weaknesses, ambitions and needs; others require more time and much patience. Front and center, ready and willing to listen and act on the students’ individual needs are our four guidance counselors. Job opportunities, scholarship applications, college entrance information, and much more pass through the hands of these people every day. There’s never a dull moment in the four main hall offices — people who help people are always busy. LEFT : What seems to be the long and short of the Guidance Department is actually Mr. Chelap and Sister Alfred posting college bulletins for anxious seniors.

The Theology Department serves a very valuable function here at Andrean — it justifies the existence of the school. Andrean exists primarily for educating young men and women in their faith. Any good school provides a purely secular education, but a good Catholic school through its Theology Department widens a person’s vision to take in the sacred. Andrean offers Freshman students an opportunity to delve into Salvation History in the Old Testament; Sophomores work their way through the New Testament. With a Biblical background Juniors study the Psychology of man while Seniors pursue Faith and Sacraments and Morality. Meant to be more than a mere forum for presenting information, these classes give Andrean students an opportunity to grow in the Spiritual life. TOP: Mr. Kasun leads Freshman boys through the ups and downs of Salvation History in Biblical Literature. CENTER LEFT: Mike Walsh and Dan Dakich dramatize the idolatry of Old Testament times using a modern idol — the " Fonz”.

CENTER: Even television can become a learning tool to present a more visual lesson in Contemporary Authors class. Literacy ranks high in the list of Andrean priorities — every student is required to take four years of English. Through a well- developed program of grammar, composition skills, literature, and oral expression, the English Department puts an extremely useful tool in the minds of students — their country’s language. The first three years concentrate mainly on fundamentals without which the fourth year choice of electives would be i mpossible. For those interested in further study there is Journalism and Public Speaking. If " Johnny can’t read” at Andrean, it’s not because of lack of exposure to the written word. LEFT : Dec Dee Czemoch and Mary Libauskas dramatize a " This Is Your Life” presentation featuring Scout from TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. TOP RIGHT : In small group discussions about a short story Ellen Stinar discovers the importance of concentrating on someone else’s point of view. CENTER RIGHT: Mrs. Gilbertson guides English II students as they present a symposium about Houdini, complete with a box-model to illustrate one of his famous tricks.

English II, III Mrs. Alice Rose Landeck English I Academics — 21 For the mere cost of one year and a few books, an Andrean student is able to travel around the world in any of the three foreign language programs. French, Spanish, and German grammar, pronunciation, and composition put the mastering of a second language within the grasp of any student willing to apply himself to the discipline required. The literature and cultural heritage of each branch of the department broaden the student’s understanding and appreciation of other people. The study of classical Latin begins in a very un-classical way — with the programmed text and coordinated tapes of ARTE I LATINAE. Higher levels study and enjoy the works of great Roman writers. In effect, then, not all of us " speak the same language”, but, scholastically speaking, that’s an asset. TOP: Drills in verb conjuga- tion are a necessity in learn- ing various Latin tenses for all Latin students. CENTER LEFT: A concert by Mr. Dowalgo’s Spanish III class brings Christmas entertainment to Miss O’Hara’s class and furthers their learning of Spanish customs. CENTER RIGHT: Spanish II students find that a Christmas celebra- tion without a pihata is only half a celebration, and trying to find a sturdy hanging place is half the fun.

Spanish II, III New Testament 22 — Academics TOP: Reading a textbook upside-down may seem strange to some, but to Latin I students it is the only way to finish the final chapters since that’s how they are printed. CENTER LEFT : In Spanish I, listening to the dialogue through earphones often makes concentration much easier and reading a little more comprehensible.

CENTER RIGHT: Sometimes an experiment in Chemistry doesn’t work, and sometimes that’s not so amusing because it means rechecking the entire procedure for errors. S. Joan Marie, SS.C.M. Faith and Sacraments Chemistry, Advanced Biology Miss Sonia Casas Biology 24 — Academics It’s a small world after all — just ask a Freshman biology student who has stared through a microscope for longer than five minutes. Or perhaps a Chemistry student would concur — all those itsy-bitsy molecules they think of constantly. Then again, maybe a Physical Science or Physics student would disagree — look how far the sunlight has to travel to reach our earth. Whatever way we look at it, the Science Department deals in the superlatives of life above and below the surface of things. To allow for greater initiative and creative research, Advanced Biology students this year were given one quarter to concentrate on the area of biology they chose. The student majoring in science at Andrean finds two four-year laboratory-oriented programs available — more than ample material to satisfy scientific curiosity. TOP: While Biology classes use dead frogs for dissection, the Advanced Biology class uses a live one to study its E.K.G. reading. CENTER LEFT: Mr. Floraday tries to clarify a Physics problem dealing with the effects of acceleration due to gravity on the path of a bullet. CENTER RIGHT: Miss Casas’ Biology class charts the many different possibil- ities of offspring after studying genotypes. Miss Helen Wirtz Chemistry, Physical Science Algebra I Academics — 25 On a scale of 1 to 10, the Mathematics Department rates a 12 for use of board space, chalk, and erasers. Perhaps no single department makes better use of overhead projectors and sheets of transparencies. The abstract concepts of mathematics begin to take shape in the students’ minds after repeated explanations, sample problems, and visual presentations. In three separate tracks designed to meet the students on their level of ability, Andrean students have the opportunity to progress from basic computation to algebra to geometry to trigonometry to the calculus. Skills and techniques learned here will be put to good use in everything from grocery shopping to nuclear physics. CENTER LEFT : Students pay close attention while Fr. Cylwicki uses the overhead projector to show examples of work in Calculus. CENTER RIGHT: Algebra I students learn early to recognize the difference of two squares in the factoring of polynomials.

By sharp contrast Accounting students quietly and carefully work out simulated payroll records and tax records. Shorthand students steadily better their speed in taking dictation and transcribing their shorthand notes into spelling- and punctuation-perfect business letters. Clerical and Secretarial Office Practice, Business Law, and Advanced Business fill out the curriculum for students destined for a future career in the competitive and demanding business world. TOP: Even boys can see the advantages of learning how to type for the future business or college world. CENTER LEFT : In Shorthand II students combine speed and accuracy to develop their skills. ABOVE: Aurora Aguirre manages to practice dictation in shorthand quite freely despite all her jeweled accessories. Academics — 29 From Socrates to Socialism, the Social Studies Department covers a lot of territory — in terms of time and geography. In World History Sophomores get an overview of the successes and failures of man since the dawn of history until the present. Juniors concentrate on the United States, while Government, Sociology, and or Economics are the Seniors’ share of the department’s curriculum. For those who find the study of other cultures inviting there is Non-Western Civilization. Hopefully, all of this exposure to past problems and their solutions or non-solutions will make for fewer problems and better solutions in the adult lives of Andrean students. TOP: Sociology students find more than ample material in the daily newspaper to exemplify and pinpoint contemporary problems and issues. CENTER: Sister Gilmary’s American Studies class gets a chronological and coordinated view of American History and Literature — a teacher’s dream of transfer of learning.

BELOW: Mr. Jovanovic knows that seeing is believing (and seeing is remembering) especially when the World History subject matter is 2000 miles away. Academics — 31 There’s always something cooking at Andrean. The clang of pots and pans and tantalizing aromas make Mrs. Crary’s foods classes a delight. Here, for sure, the students are able to " have their class and eat it too.” Only one door away, Andrean is kept in " stitches” by the buzz of Mrs. Wamsher’s sewing machines. While clothing students don’t produce anything they can sink their teeth into, the pajamas, coordinated outfits and woolen coats that they model as finished products supplement their wardrobes. Foods, clothing, and Home Management students learn lessons for life in their respective Home Economics courses. TOP RIGHT: Toni Pious sets nimble fingers to work on what the machine couldn’t do. TOP LEFT: How could Jeannie Jones possibly make a wrong stitch with so much help from her concerned classmates? CENTER RIGHT : Mrs. Crary can happily record that Kim George and Lisa Mirabella got breakfast on the table with time enough to eat it in more than one gulp.

By developing sportsmanship and athletic discipline, a student gains strengths that will be applicable to many situations in life. The physical education program at Andrean offers volleyball, basketball, hockey, and other team and recreational sports to promote the development of a sound mind and body. Health and Safety teaches the value of personal hygiene as well as valuable lessons in first-aid. TOP LEFT: Building a human pyramid is less frightening when Miss Bombassaro lends a helping hand. TOP RIGHT: There’s nothing like a good game of badminton to exercise a person’s neck muscles. CENTER: A " different” activity of gym class is hockey without ice. Academics — 33 Creativity! Andrean students get a chance to develop and exercise their creative abilities in the Art and Industrial Arts classes. Art I students learn the basics of drawing, color, and design and graduate in Art II to advanced two and three dimensional design. Art III and IV introduce the students to acrylics and oil and give them the opportunity to do some independent study in the media of their choice. The Industrial Arts curriculum aims to prepare students for future careers in design, interior decorating, technology, engineering, and industry. With an eye to precision and mastering the techniques of drafting, students do working drawings according to modern commercial practice. In shop, woods, plastics, and metals students build, sculpt, polish, and rivet projects that familiarize them with industrial procedures. In all, the student with a creative bent has a variety of opportunities to satisfy his or her inclinations. TOP: Art IV students Maggie Ede and Nancy Burrell touch up the environment of the Art room. CENTER LEFT: Cardboard face sculptures are another of the various projects in which Art II students can express their creativity.

Bennett Biology, Technical Drawing, Physical Education 34 — Academics On the day of the incoming Freshman entrance exam every potential student at Andrean gets his or her first introduction to the Music Department. " Do you play a musical instrument?” If they so choose, it can be the start of a beautiful career: Beginning band for the less experienced; concert band for those already familiar with fundamentals. This year for the first time in many years Andrean had a small but mighty marching band until football season was over. Then they settled down to less foot-stomping music. The mixed chorus assembled a varied repertoire of tunes to the delight of parents and fellow students. Our school would not be complete without this department to add a spice and spark to life. iss Ann Marie Vandcyacht horal, Music Theory, ncerc and Beginning Band TOP: Whether alone or together, Margie Hostetler, Debbie Magallon, and Michelle Lowe make it perfect with practice.

Mis Hern S.mvn Main Office Mrs. Betty Ann Yurechko Main Office Academics — 37 Christian Perspectives In order to give the students a chance to apply the Christ- ian attitudes they learned in Theology class, relig- ious activities and services were interspersed through- out the year. Masses, retreats, penance services, pray- er meetings, and communion services were some of the many opportunities offered to students by Andrean’s relig- ious community. Spiritual counseling, a new religious activity, gave Seniors a chance to discuss their exper- iences and problems and to receive spiritual guidance and encouragement from concerned members of the faculty. The class retreats underwent a radical change from last year. Students were allowed to choose from a diversified list of workshops highlighting prayer through song, art, dance, and meditation. On February 18 the Andrean student body celebrated a Mass commemorating the 20th anniversary of the creation of the Diocese of Gary and Bishop Grutka’s appointment while simultaneously every school in the Diocese did the same. Through such re- ligious activities the Andrean faith community grows stronger. TOP: Art and Prayer, one of the retreat workshops, gives students such as Gretchen Wellman and friend the opportunity to express their ideas in a creative way. CENTER: Sister Joan Marie and Mr. Lee aid in the Masses by contributing their musical and vocal talents.

THE NIGHT THOREAU SPENT IN JAIL was a serious drama, but it captured the audience’s attention and kept it throughout the duration of the play. Done in the " theater-in-the-round”, a new mode of presentation for Andrean stage productions, the drama told of the consequences of Thoreau’s one-man stand against being taxed to support what he believed was an unjust war with Mexico. Directed by Father Kelly, the new Drama Club moderator, the production was well-received by the audiences of all four performances. f tm TOP: Thoreau tries to convince the Towns- people that the government is wrong to force men to pay taxes for the war in Mexico.

Thanks to the enormous amount of work put in during the summer by Father Eckert (after whom the sta- dium was named) and his crew, the new stadium was completed in time for Homecoming 1976. Even though our Fighting 59’ers had to struggle on the field to overcome Portage 6-0, the night was filled with ex- citement over the outcome of the game, the decision of who would be crowned Queen, the thrill of actu- ally being in our own stadium, and the magic that is a part of Homecoming. Bobbie Lazaro Marino, An- drean’s first Homecoming Queen crowned in 1962, was home to present Shauna Boliker with the royalties for this Bicentennial year.

The Seniors took the honors for Best Float, and the award for Best Car was given to Junior Diane Tukaj. Homecoming 1976 was altogether a very special one that will take its place in the history of Andrean. TOP: Juniors give their float a little tender loving care before the parade to the stadium.

Island Paradise The 1976 Victory Ball brought the " South Pacific” to pre- winter Andrean. A warm, tropical atmosphere pervaded the evening for those who attended the first dance of the year. Relaxing and enjoying each other’s company, danc- ing and listening to the sounds provided by Midwest Foxx, and locating monkeys made exclusively for each couple were part of the evening’s activities which contributed to making it a memorable evening for many. TOP: Maria Blando and Bob Goad pick up the rosebud which will add a touch of class to their dance picture.

The marathon was open to all students. Participating couples had at least a dollar an hour pledged, and they received twenty percent of their earnings. Midwest Foxx and Axe donated their time and provided various musical styles, including disco and hard rock. As an added treat, Marty Jelovcic performed a Polka medley on his accordian. The twelve hour marathon, which gave many an opportunity to demonstrate their danc- ing ability and stamina, drew almost 330 spectators and collected nearly $3000 for Mrs. Cafiero. By all accounts it was a great success. TOP: Mike Wilczynski and Karyn Custer, initiators of the benefit marathon, take time out to visit with Mrs. Cafiero during the marathon.

Student Life — 49 " Weekend in New England " A ship bound for the New England coast provided a welcome get-away for Freshmen and Sophomores at this year’s Froshmore night. The soothing marine atmosphere, along with song and dance, broke the ice and allowed conversa- tion to flow freely. When things returned to normal again on Monday morning, students at least had pleasant memories of a " Weekend in New England.” 50 — Student Life TOP: Angela Morgan, Mark Holcomb, and Terry Babilla are caught up in the fun and fantasy of Froshmore Night.

As some couples danced to the lively beat of Mandingo, others socialized at the de- lightfully decorated tables or searched for their per- sonalized candy canes.

Student Life — 51 Something for Everyone Assemblies at Andrean serve to inform, entertain, and enliven. This year we enlivened our spirits at the Christ- mas assembly with songs and skits. The National Theatre Company’s production, " Shakespeare is Alive and Well and Living in America”, provided a bit of culture in our lives. We honored the accomplishments of others at the National Honor Society induction and listened atten- tively as newsman Harry Porterfield told us about people who have achieved great things despite overwhelming handicaps. At the Talent Show assembly we became aware of the skills and talents of fellow students. The many assem- blies contributed to our character development while providing a welcome break in the school day.

The many witty lines were highlighted by numbers which included ragtime, classical Beethoven, and syncopated jazz. CHARLIE BROWN was Miss Vandeyacht’s first musical directing job with a dramatic production, and the experience was both practical and fun. The play was the second success for Drama Club moderator.

Student Life — 55 Sew ' n Show The clothing classes’ annual Style Show again proved that many girls at Andrean have a real talent for sewing. Members of beginning and advanced classes participated in the event, held this year on May 25. Under the super- vision of Mrs. Wamsher, some forty girls modeled everything from jumpsuits to ponchos to dresses and skirts to warm-up suits and coats. These girls not only enjoy making and showing their clothes, but they have also learned a valuable skill. The Foods classes, aided by Mrs. Crary, provided the de- licious refreshments for the show and acted as hostesses for the evening. Even the intermissions were entertaining with Mr. Wamsher showing a selec- tion of slides of scenic places the Wamshers enjoyed on their several trips across the United States.

The even- ing’s festivities began with t he girls serving their fathers a lasagna dinner in the Valentine decorated cafeteria. Couples then moved on to the library for pic- tures and to the boys’ gym for two fun-filled hours of square dancing. A change in mood and music was provided by Dick Candiano and his Orchestra for the ballroom- dancing portion of the program. Dedicated daddies were presented with special awards for four-year attendance with their daughters.

This year’s Prom was held at the Hellenic Cultural Center, where couples danced in a fantasy world to the music provid- ed by Bob Minick and his Continental Orchestra. Held at the same location, Post-Prom featured Potpourri, who performed a special ’50’s medley which added to the fun and exhilaration of the Prom.

Student Life — 59 Juniors Earn Jug Armageddon, the traditional Andrean class confrontation, con- tinued this year with great fervor. During the sunny weekend in May, the four classes engaged in every- thing from field hockey to bubble- gum blowing to volleyball. The victor’s jug went to the Juniors, who stockpiled enough points to overcome the Sophomores, Seniors, and Freshmen in that order. At Fri- day’s assembly, Mel Gore opened the games by lighting the Armageddon torch. Afterwards, the spirit con- test, obstacle course race, and bubble-gum blowing contest round- ed out the assembly and prepared the way for the next day and a half of sports. Saturday night’s juke-box soc-hop ended the weekend of fun. TOP: Student Association President Marcia Wojkovich presents the Armageddon jug to the victorious J uniors at the sock-hop.

Something new this year was the twelve hour Dance Marathon benefit for Mr. Cafiero, who was paralyzed after being shot in a robbery attempt last year. Involv- ing each homeroom, the Council-sponsored Thanksgiving Food Drive provided an ample Thanksgiving dinner for those who might have had none. To benefit the Mission Society, the Council promoted a Faculty-Student volley- ball game. Expecting to see a student victory, many left their money at the door only to have their hopes crushed when the faculty made a 2 to 1 sweep. Another fund-raising activity was the popular Christmas Mailbox and Singing Telegram service, through which students had their Christmas wishes delivered at super-savings and the Missions received much-needed funds. Other successes were the Talent Show, Recreation Night, and Teacher Appreciation Day. The final Council-sponsored event of the year was Armageddon, Andrean’s mini-Olympics. As usual, the Classes enjoyed the opportunity to compete with each other in hopes of becoming Number One. TOP: Aida Farag tries to explain her suggestion more clearly for confused Marty Jelovcic.

Organizations — 67 Putting 1977 in Perspective An honor and glory job it’s not. It’s more like earth-mov- ing, one teaspoon at a time. The Yearbook staff has devel- oped extraordinary talents: counting to 47 in spite of background noise, multiplying by six and dividing by five, photographing big images, locating the strong vertical in a picture, erasing four copies, drawing a straight line with a ruler, and avoiding passive tense like the plague. But if the good idea worked — it’s in your hands now. If it didn’t, we composed this for nothing. Enjoy!

" First place ratings from the Quill and Scroll, the National Scholastic Press Association, and the Columbia Scholastic Press Association attest to the quality of Andrean’s newspaper under the direction of Sister Gilmary. This year’s Acropolis staff included more underclassmen as reporters. Since the paper was a monthly publication, reporting on-the-minute news flashes was not possible. Instead, the emphasis was on feature articles and editorials, many of which sparked a few heated discussions among students. The ACROPOLIS, therefore, had the distinction of being a school newspaper that is actually read by the students instead of becoming new aeronautical designs flight-tested in hallways and classrooms.

Organizations — 69 Friend in Need Service is the keyword of the Mission Society directed by Sister Mary Anne. One of the largest undertakings of this year was the Christmas collection for area migrant workers. Christmas gift baskets of clothes, blankets, food, and toys were assembled from items and money donated by the students. The turkey raffle at Thanksgiving and sale of carnations for Valentine’s and St. Patrick’s Days supplemented the twice-monthly homeroom collections to enable the Society to send donations of $100 or more to several missions this year.

The work that followed the teachers’ answer to Sister’s request made up the bulk of the Business Club’s activities for the year. Jobs were many and varied, giv- ing the members valuable experience in typing, stencil work, and duplicating.

Juniors — 1 57 158 High school is an end of formal education for some and a beginning for others. For everyone, it is an important experience in their lives. It is a time of fun and fellowship, and occasionally a time of discouragement and confusion. It is a preparation for the world which we must eventually become a part of. Andrean has been a combination of many experiences — working and studying, getting along with others, having good times with freinds, coming to a fuller understanding of the relationship between man and God. Senior year brings the realization that we are no longer children. We must now be ready to accept life with all of its challenges, whether they be the struggle through college and beyond, the hassle of finding a job, or the problems of raising a family. Graduation is the door which leads us from our past into our future. It is an event which brings both celebration and sadness at the same time, but mostly it brings us the satisfaction of knowing we have accomplished something and have come out in one piece and this knowledge gives us the motivation and inspiration to continue, to search for other satisfactions, to reach for more accomplishment in the years to come.
