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
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
"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.
