I copied (stole) this idea from another blogger. Thanks Far Side! This was high school graduation, 1949. I don't remember any thoughts from the speakers. I loved school and was looking forward to Hutchinson Junior College, just a few blocks down the street. Lots of classmates went there but of course, many went on to KU or KSU. I just plugged away at Juco (as we lovingly called it - now it's Hutchinson Community College. There is so much demeaning in the word JUNIOR when used in the name of a school!) Then on to KSTC, now Emporia State University because we can't have the word "TEACHER" in the name of a place of higher learning!
Can you tell I am, like some older people, resistant to change?
