Bon oyage 65th Commencement produces "A Successful Mix" of 60 new alumni The air seemed to cover the cam- pus like a blanket, hot and motionless. The temperature was running high, and it was still morning. But there was something special in that stagnant air, something that set this morning apart from all others. There was a sense of pent up excitement, of relief, and of readiness to move on. Perhaps it was the parking lot packed with cars, or the people that kept arriving, all dressed properly in bright spring colors. Or maybe it was the rows of chairs that filled the courtyard. And then there was the rustle of the band, trying to get settled and tuned up. The ushers were ready with a smile, a polite hello, and a program. And off in the distance the banner waved which read "To a wonderfull and successful mix, Good Luck to the Class of '86." lust one breath of air could tell you it was Graduation Day. All together, sixty seniors walked down that memorable path to the po- dium. Two by two they marched be- tween families and friends and past two rows of faculty. They approached as seniors. They left as alumni. Like a birth into manhood, the ever preva- lent burden of formality was broken, between father and son, teacher and student, warden and inmate. Graduation was a time of awards, for both students and faculty. For the students, the editors stole the day. The Class I Deteur and the recipient of the Headmaster's Cup was Rich Nuzum, past editor of the yearbook. The recipient of the Aurelian Award was lohn Lee, past editor of the News. There were three chairs presented to faculty members. The Albert G. Blanke Chair went to a "poet," Mr. Brian Taylor, and a "scholar," Sylvia Hoffert. The Donald H. Webb Chair was awarded to Victor Caltagirone for excellence in Humanities. Finally, the Robert P. Hughes Annual Chair went this year to Ron Holtman for excel- lence in coaching. The class of '86 chose past faculty member William H. Hallett as the Commencement speaker. His speech centered upon preparing for things ahead and enjoying the journey through life. "Students today are missing the trees for the forest," said Hallett, meaning that too often college is just a stepping stone to career and suc- cess. He emphasized the idea of en- joying the journey to success rather than simply looking directly for suc- cess. He also suggested that people should not become "specializers," but should have an open and broad outlook to life. by Rob Khlar and Steve Banks 28fGraduation 1 The graduating seniors in the Glee Club sing their last song as Mr. Mehl leads them in the Alma Mater.

Whether found congregating around the flagpole in the early afternoon, or sleeping in library chairs during their free periods, seniors seem to have striking si- milarities in their behavior. They seem assured that not only are jackets not required, but that work in general isn't either. Some define Senioritis as a mood, others argue that it's a biological disorder. Whatever the case may be, this "mood" settles down upon most seniors and limits their ability to think, create, and in worse cases, move. Senioritis is often referred to as a disease, similar to Mononu- cleosis, or simply "Mono," Compare the two and eye- awakening similarities appear. For instance, Mono causes lack of rest, which drives students to sleep late and produces numer- ous tardies. Seniors do not have the best track record for 8:00 A.M. appearances. Due to the Seniori tis Tom Diggs displays the "get dressed by noon" approach to his science class. lack of sleep Mono causes ado- lescents to be tired and unpro- ductive throughout the major- ity ofthe day. Granted, the sen- ior class always has its academic stars, but the majority are not so active or inspired. Those with Sean Kirkland leans relaxfully against a door as he prepares himself for the day ahead. Byron Valier decides jackets are waived while Stuart Rauch finishes up last nights homework. Mono experience severe plum- mets in their grades due to ab- sence from school. Well, roll- call in senior courses was mar- ginally down, and their grades are usually not worth a standing ovation. But senioritis does not end with its similarities to Mono. It has other effects. It causes sen- iors to remove all heavy clothes, within the realm of decency, and herds them out to popular tanning spas on the grounds. It also causes them to leave cam- pus for lunch, or anything else for that matter. Let's face it, everyone is a sen- ior in high school once in his life. And no matter what period or decade you chose to look at, the temptation of laying back a bit and relaxing is blatent. Sen- ioritis is, therefore, a strongly rooted tradition, and no cure has been discovered, yet . . . by Steve Banks x l" l 5 l T' Senioritisf2f
