Prem Night Ie Night To Remember For Grade "Looking To The Future" was the theme for the 1976 Senior Prom. Senior Class Officers headed by John Gian- nakis spearheaded the plans for the Prom. Jerry Clark, in charge of the committee to obtain the band, scheduled "Prism", a popular group. Again this year the Jantzen Beach Thunderbird Hotel was selected as the site for the special event. The River- view Room has excellent facilities and enables prom at- tenders to take a leisurely walk while viewing the lights reflecting off the water of the Columbia River. Dinner was included in the 515.00 per couple ticket and was served 7:30. Dancing took place from 8:30 to 12:00. Even though formal wear was not required, a suit or sport iacket was.

we as ' ' -23 Graduation Elpene Exciting New Deere r s The Civic Auditorium was the scene ofthe T976 gradua- tion exercises June 7. -r As in the past seniors from Benson have attended Com- . mencement exercises in the Civic Auditorium because it is, in the opinion of Mr. Stan Blair, vice-principal, the perfect setting. lt also enables more parents and friends to .5-f ., be accomodated. Guest speaker was Mr. Frank McNamara, School Board member, who also handed out various awards earned by seniors throughout their four years. fl Afterwards Mr. Harold Andersen handed out three- hundred and seventy-five hard earned diplomas. He was assisted by Mrs. Dorothy Jones and Mr. Bob Wilson, two of Benson's fine counselors. Seniors gathered in the basement ofthe auditorium and A. the excitement both before and after graduation was ter- 5 rific. Each senior knew he entered the world of business or college with a special advantage - a diploma from the Na- s tion's Finest Technical School - a school with a great 11 reputation. 'M Baccalaureate Hae r Deeper Meaning On June the Baccalaureate was held at Benson High School. The Baccalaureate is a religious service for any , senior at Benson who wished to attend, lt is usually held three to four days before Commencement exercises in r June. "Traditionally this has been sponsored by Benson until f 533.1 two years ago when there was no religious service," com- mented Mr. Stan Blair, vice-principal. This was due to the interpretation of the law regarding separation of the - church andthe schools. This year the Dads' Club and the PTA formed a ioint committee to sponsor the service. The Dads' Club paid the rent on the auditorium and the PTA sponsored the recep- L tion which followed. A student committee headed by Steve Kienberger ar- - ranged the program. Other students assisting were Tim Overton, Randy Springer, Vern Gillespie, and David Ris.
