Historical document: Division Avenue High's first graduation program

Click on pages to enlarge

Fifty-one years ago, the first Division Avenue High School class graduated. The date was June 26, 1960. Among the 204 or so graduates was Sandy Adams who saved the program and invitation from that historic day and kindly scanned the pages.

The first page shown here is the invitation. It features a drawing of the school. Carole Arnesen gave the valedictory address and Ellen Rees the salutatory remarks.

The next blog post will include the remaining pages.
