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.

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,
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

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

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
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 . . .
