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.

Students from all parts
"What?! The dorms aren't air-
conditioned?" This was a com-
mon response by the seniors
and juniors who signed up to
attend l-Camp at Mizzou. A
week after school ended, the
editors of "The News," the
"Codasco," and their staff
members packed up their bags,
loaded up their cars with soda
and snacks, and headed for Co-
lumbia. A couple of hours later
at Mizzou, everyone was as-
signed a dorm room with a
room-mate, and the heat was
definitely on. Fans were found
twirling left and right, ice was
everywhere, and everybody was
trying to find a way to cool off.
The following few days after
orientation when everyone was
adapting to the 90 degree tem-
peratures, the twelve students
of Missouri study
Journalism at Mizzou
attended classes related to the
activity they were in. Whether
you were in Advanced Year-
book, Newspaper, or Photogra-
phy, everyone had three to four
hours of classes with one and a
half hours of lunch or dinner
break in-between. These classes
consisted of power lectutres,
interviewing, layout, and expla-
nations of the latest trends.
The long hours in the class-
room appeared to have paid off.
In the annual write-off, Garth
Weins took a surprising third in
the News Feature contest, while
Tom lames walked away with a
second in sportswriting. To say
that one did not learn much at
I-Camp would be a big mistake.
1-camp definitely provided
the teaching needed to orga-
nize a newspaper and yearbook.
Near the end of the week, how-
ever, even though the home-
work had increased, party fever
went through the camp. Poker

thought before. How about
those 4:00 a.m. mornings, guys?
Quick lunches were grabbed
at the McDonalds, Shake-

campus to be a city by itself.

quick to find the similarities be-
