Holy Name Church was the setting for the 52nd commencement of Catholic Memorial on Thursday afternoon, May 24 at 4 p.m. The graduates, clad in striking red caps and gowns filed into the great church and took their seats in a reserved front section as proud parents and family looked on. Welcoming all and serving as master of ceremonies was Mr. Richard Chisholm, principal.
The exercises began with the singing of America the Beautiful led by music teacher Craig Spaner and the invocation by Leah C. Ramsdell. Miles E. McCarthy delivered the salutatory address and Dennis J. Muldoon, the valedictory address. An invited speaker for the happy occasion was Robert P. Maloney, a 1977 CM graduate and chairman of the CM Board of Directors. Also addressing the graduates was CM President Paul E. Sheff who next month celebrates his 50th reunion with the CM Class of 1962. Dipomas were presented to 159 graduates. Twelve in the class are sons of CM graduates.
