A testimony from an SJO Alumnus…
I first attended the Alumni Association Banquet in 1968, three weeks after our class graduated. My parents were on the planning committee, and they let me know that since I was now an alumnus, my presence was required at the Banquet!!
It was held in the big gym in the Ogden building. The entire gym was full of decorated tables. The honor classes that year were 1943 and 1918. I thought to myself, “How in the world could anyone 68+ years old be able to walk, talk, or even breathe at their class reunion!!” To me they were all walking fossils!!
Last year was our 50th Class Reunion!! Surprisingly we all were walking, talking, and breathing quite well….Thank you!!
Come in June with your favorite story of high school, a reunion, or some sporting event….it will be a lot of fun!! Don’t forget the theme: Summer of Love!! We will have a GROOVY TIME: out of sight, out of mind, in the groove, Baby!!
