From the desk of:

Grant High School
My congratulations to the Graduating
Class of 1970 on the spirit and enthusi
asm you have generated in school activi
ties during the past year.
Although you will be departing Grant,
you will be leaving behind a fine record
of accomplishments and achievements
which will do much toward stimulating
interest and involvement in other classes.
Your most recent endeavor, Senior
Week, must be regarded as an especially
successful class activity. Truly, you have
established yourselves as an enterprising

But especially, we will remember the

We thank you all for the support, fi

you’ve done. The contributions have
truly been marvelous and magnificent.
It is impossible to list, individually, all
the things you’ve helped us do. The
things aforementioned are only the “big”
things you’ve helped us with. The small
things are too numerous to mention.
And we can’t price what you’ve done,
because it’s immeasurable. But you have
helped us beyond our highest expecta
