Graduation 1971

Greg Wood, a Cushing alumni from Texas, and I have been communicating via email and Facebook about his time in Hanover.  Recently, he sent me a picture of his class tip with Sr. Rita to Washington, DC from 1971.  As it happened, it was the same year I graduated from high school.  What struck me  was  that my high school did not offer a trip to Washington to meet our representatives in Congress but, a school for students with disabilities provided that opportunity.  I think that was pretty progressive and another example of the commitment of our founder, Cardinal Cushing and our sponsors, The Sister’s of St. Francis of Assisi to provide the highest quality education to our students.  A tradition we uphold today.

Greg is next to Sr. Rita

Greg also donated a flag that was flown over our United States Capitol in memory of Senator Kennedy.  We will be flying it proudly on our Hanover campus.
