CLASS HISTORY ln September of 1952, practice for "Our Graduation Day" was begun. 43 parts were as- signed and the young stars that tried out were: Harold Alcott, Beverly Bolger, Dennis Brecht, Sharon Brecht, Sharon Carter, Barbara Ealy, Dennis Fant, Linda Gaines, Lou Ellen Ginther, Beth Grunewald, Joan Hannen, Brian Hartz, Bob Hinchcliffe, Donald Hiner, Carolyn Kahle, Earl Krueger, Virginia Learn, Douglas Lenton, Jeanne Mapes, Ptrick Martin, Gary McMains, Alfred Meyer, Daryl Meyer, Dixie Newton, Lesley Paulsen, Julia Peiffer, Larry Peska, Roger Rieke, Kathryn Risdal, John Roth, Beverly Schram, Linda Schuldt, Marvin Schulte, John Shuck, Marion Siek, Alan Stewart, Glen Stoddard, Allen Ullerich, Mary Van Steenhuyse, Kenny Vargason, Billy Voss, and Sandra Young. Before the end of the year Donald Hiner, John Roth, Allen Walter, Lou Ellen Ginther, Jeanne Mapes, Sandra Young, and Barbara Ealy decided that practice was too long and left the cast. ln order to keep the cast even, Duane Hakanson, Sharon Pence, Dennis Crow, Sandra Frimml, Janet Braasch, Larry Eppers, and Darwin Rieck joined us in our first year. Second grade found us without Bob Hinchcliffe, Larry Eppers, Virginia Learn, Douglas Lenton, Lesley Paulsen, Sharon Pence, but the addition of Terry Buelow, Judy Zrudsky, and Judy Gross helped to fill the vacancies. At the end of the year, we traded Larry Peska, Judy Gross, Dennis Fant, and Duane Hakanson for newcomers. During third grade, Anne Baker, Ronald Dye, Richard Stoddard, and Mary Jo Midthun joined us for rehearsal. Our progress was fine but casualties from our hard practices mounted. Ronald Dye, Richard Stoddard, Mary Jo Midthun, Patrick Martin, Earl Krueger, and Joan Hannen left us only to be replaced by Randa Neuhous and Charles Martin during fourth grade. At the close of fourth grade, Judy Zrudsky and Randa Neuhous left to join a new cast. During fifth grade, Phillip Stoddard, Brian Gage, and Joan Hannen joined our rehearsals but Phillip Stoddard, Linda Schuldt, Glen Stoddard, Billy Voss, and Beverly Bolger quit because they tired of the script. As we entered sixth grade thirty-two actors and actresses composed our expanding cast but Joan Hannen, Darwin Rieck, and Beverly Schram left because of other commit- ments. Richard Kelly and Jeff Osborn joined us at the beginning of seventh grade but Richard Kelly left because of a change in the script. Our first dress rehearsal was held May 24, 1961. Ninth grade found us without Alfred Meyer, and Linda Gaines but Jim Fitzgerald, Frances Schulte, Janice Weisert, Sandra Smith, Phillip Stoddard, and Darwin Rieck were added to our cast. Jim Fitzgerald was absent as we began our sophomore year but Joan Hannen rejoined the troupe to begin practicing. Daryl Meyer, Charles and Frances Schulte had departed by eleventh grade and we lost Janice Weisert and Dennis Brecht at the end of the year, Before our final production was presented, Deanna Woodstrichill joined the cast but left because she had a previous engagement. The stage production of "Our Graduation Day" was presented May 26 with the following 29 dependable classmates ending l3 years of long rehearsals and work: Harold Alcott, Anne Baker, Janet Braasch, Sharon Brecht, Terry Buelow, Sharon Carter, Dennis Crow, Sandy Frimml, Brian Gage, Beth Grunewald, Joan Hannen, Brian Hartz, Carolyn Kahle, Gary McMains, Dixie Newton, Jeff Osborn, Julia Peiffer, Darwin Rieck, Roger Rieke, Kathryn Risdal, Marvin Schulte, John Shuck, Marion Siek, Sandy Smith, Alan Stewart, Phillip Stoddard, Allen Ullerich, Mary Van Steenhuyse, and Kenny Vargason.
