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.
