North High School
Class of 1969

  50 Year Reunion Newsletter  

 

Redskin Reflections from Spring, 1969
 
 
The last few months of our Senior year were filled with many events to celebrate our time at North High.  Although we knew the high school experience was ending soon and a new future awaited, our immediate priority was to enjoy the time remaining by attending or participating in the following activities with friends.  Now, as older and wiser ‘Seniors’, we can reflect upon our high school memories with an appreciation for friends and mentors that created these learning opportunities and supported our efforts as we prepared to face the challenges of being an adult.
 
-          Fine Arts and Athletic Activities – Redskin Rhythms Senior Assembly, “I Never Saw Another Butterfly” play, “Broadway Splash” synchronized swimming show and various track, tennis, baseball and golfing competitions.
 
-          Annual Water Festival - float and race competitions between each class provided opportunities to participate and root for classmates.
 
-          Ring Turning beneath Butch – an annual ritual for Seniors to ‘pass the torch’ to Juniors near the end of the school year.
 
-          Senior Events – Senior Banquet, Senior Prom (with after party at Rose Bowl West), and Senior Week, (including Commencement practice).
 
-          Commencement - May 23, 1969 (Friday), 8:00 PM - Henry Levitt Arena
Pomp and Circumstance- Symphonic Band
National Anthem - Symphonic Band
Flag Salute - Kelly Pinkham 
Invocation - Tim Sheedy
Songs - Happy is the Man and Salutation to the Dawn - North High Choir
Commencement Address - Joe Cooper.   “Commencement 1969, From Here to Where”
Donna Jefferies - A Blur of Red and White
Presentation of the Class - Dr. John Gasper
Presentation of Diplomas 
Alma Mater
Benediction - Tim Sheedy
Recessional - Symphonic Band
 
Each of these activities was a well-established school tradition and, along with many other shared experiences, became part of our individual and collective DNA as North High Redskins.  Later this year, thanks to a few of our dedicated classmates, we once again have the chance to spend time with old friends and acknowledge an important part of who we are.  The memories that have stayed with us for half a century are an undeniable reminder that, “Once a Redskin, Always a Redskin”.
