That old cliche at least an true to form as far as the outdoor graduation cere- nonies at West Deer High School were concerned. School followers remember that everyone literally froze luring the 1964 outdoor ceremonies. The following year 1 1965, commencement exercises on the field were rained 'ut shortly after they started and had to hurriedly be hanged to inside the gym. However, maybe it's because he members of the Class of '66 just live right, or other- rise CD, but the weather turned out to be about the most erfect ever experienced for this program. On that somewhat crisp June 1 evening, 15 8 seniors iarched onto the field to the tune of 'gPomp and Circum- tancel' to receive their hard-earned, long-awaited diplo- ras. The line of maroon and white-gowned students was led y LINDA FLIS, class First Top Honor student. She was allowed by the remaining Top Five: SUSAN STEVEN- ON, GLORIA JEAN SMITH, ANDREA MATZE, 'IRGINIA SHELESTAK, and PATRICIA KONDRAK. During the commencement exercises, these six girls elivered speeches on the various qualities needed for a uccessful career. Linda discussed choice, Susan, am- itiong Gloria, responsibility, Andrea, education, Virginia, nthusiasm, and Patty, respect. Diplomas for this 22nd graduating class were pre- :nted by MRS. ELIZABETH DOMAN, member of the ioard of Education. MR. BURNS, retiring superintendent, 'as given the honor of presenting the last diploma, to DONNA BRINKER, who became the 2,440th graduate f West Deer High School. Mr. Burns also was honored by the Board of Edu- ation for his dedicated work during his 23 years as principal of the high school and, later, as superintendent. He was presented an engraved certificate by MR. LOUIS CASTELLO, veteran member of the Board. Five scholarships were awarded on graduation night. PATRICIA KONDRAK was recipient of both the Lion's Club Scholarship and the H. C. Hess Memorial Journalism Award. The annual Women's Club scholarships went to CANDACE FREEMAN and MARGARET LONG, and the J. R. Montgomery Top Student Award was won by LINDA FLIS. In addition to these, many others received scholar- ships prior to graduating. Some of those were LINDA FLIS, Mt. Mercy, KARL KENNEDY, Valley Daily News "Outstanding Carrier" scholarship and Westminster Col- lege physics scholarshipg WYNN KENYON, Marietta College, SANDRA LETTRICH, Chatham College aca- demic grant, and ANDREA MATZE, Miami University. Other scholarships were to be announced later in the summer season. In addition to this recognition, six girls received scholarships to schools of Cosmetology. Grants from Franco Beauty Academy went to THERESA BARON, SANDRA COMPSON, SHIRLEY MILLER, TERRY OSTRZYCKI, and CAROL SZYMANSKI, while Martin Anthony School awarded one to ROSE PUSKARICH. As the traditional class gift to the school, a purse of money was presented by WYNN KENYON, class presi- dent, to MR. PETRINA for the purchase of new library books. As the strains of "Pomp and Chivalry" echoed through the cool night air, the new alumni slowly departed from the field with a whole new world in front of them - and a heart full of happy West Deer High School memories.
