Sue Padgett 1961
Least likely to approve of most likely awards
Jim Anton 1961: I'd like to nominate myself for "least likely to succeed". My greatest academic accomplishment was doing as little as possible to get a "C" or "65" to just barely pass, thus avoiding an ass kicking from my dad. I knew that if I passed the Regents Exam at the end of the year I would be given a passing grade. I received my Regents diploma along with all my classmates who worked so hard in the classroom.
If Mr. Reggio hadn't insisted on me taking biology I wouldn't have done it. He told my mom I was just lazy. I only took classes that my buddy Jay Citrin ( 1960) had taken the year before so I could steal his work. The only novel I ever read was in the form of a Classic Comic and my "Prose and Poetry" textbook never got cracked open.
My only saving grace was knowing I couldn't get lower then a 55, thus allowing me to get a 75 the next quarter and having a passing grade average.
