Graduation Day - June 8, 1961
Endings & Beginnings
We had come to the end of our high school days, and
were looking forward to things like college, careers,
families, and adventures, not necessarily in that order.
It was also the last official event in the long career of
our principal, Mr John J Schiska, and we were honored
to have him as our commencement speaker.
Mr Schiska liked group sing-alongs, and he had a
favorite song we often sang at banquets and other
school functions over the years, “Let Me Call You
Sweetheart.” So to celebrate the beginning of his
retirement, we sang it at the end of our ceremony.
Scroll down for a musical tribute to Mr Schiska!
TThis is a bit contemporary, but we think Mr Schiska would have liked it!
RIP, John J
