30 years ago right about this time. A Wa hi senior, Mike Snell comes up with a radical idea.
Traditionally graduation ceremonies feature speakers who are leaders in highest grade point average. Somehow, a group of students decided that it should be a popularity contest. That way graduation would have better speakers at least in their opinion. So in May of 1976, the senior class had an election to pick graduation speakers. Even my name was on the ballot. I don't know if the election was taken seriously, but as I remember the speakers were at the top of the class.
